The Ashes

To the north of the city along the walls lies the remains of pier one of the Skyport. The entire area was once owned by a family of merchants, the Esries, they were all killed to the last child in a campaign made against them by a number of the other families (though no one speaks of it). Upon the death of the last child the entirety of Pier One was burned to the ground, some sort of ritual had been put in place that if the bloodline died so would their property with them, thus stopping any other family from profiting upon their death. Pier One has since become The Ashes, a den for thieves and smugglers, a depressing ash ridden place dark and smelling forever more of the burnt remains of buildings.
