Unfortunately, she has had no better luck than the rest of her family, being possessed within a year by Malcar.

Cataclysm, the

According to the Diari history texts, the two moons of Ataniel, Diar and Lyrish, collided. Diar was unharmed, while all that remained of Lyrish was a thin crescent and an asteroid belt. The rubble from the collision rained down upon Ataniel for over a year, darkening the sky and causing harsh winters from the next fifty years. We call the asteroid belt Diar's Tears. Diar's Tears make space travel from Ataniel too dangerous, which is why Diaria abandoned most of its space technology. For a long time we could use the city of Port, far to the south, as a spaceport, but that was destroyed by Bane too.

--Who's Who, V1

Despite being a Web member, ole Stoogie never seemed to get a lot of respect. Maybe it was the way Edyric always made him "volunteer" for the shooting-an-apple-off-the-head trick.Maybe it was the way Algol always called him "piss boy."

Charlie Of-No-Matter

A fighter-for-hire in Nylevia, fought Signet and the Significants. Later joined Signet and the New Significants.
--Who's Who, V1

Okay, it was bad enough when Signet thought that he was so godawful important that he wanted everyone to call him Ulmo Glub, but when ex-Significant Charlie Of-No-Matter demanded that everyone start taking him seriously and call him Charles, well, I knew bad times were coming. About a year ago, he dropped by and told me that he had a new cushy gig with Knighthawke, but I figured he was blowing it out his rather large butt. Trade Assassins Guild, huh? Maybe I shouldn't have kept calling him Chuck.

She's a beautiful, kick-ass, and really classy lady. I feel awful for talking to her like she was some kind of pushy whore. I've had the worst foot-in-mouth disease these days.

Cynosure

The famed city of legend, Cynosure (not to be confused with the City on the Edge of Forever) appears every one hundred and seventy-seven years near a small village at the southernmost end of Cynystra. Its last appearance was in the year 662, almost one hundred and fifty years ago. It is next expected to appear in the year 839. Cynosure is a pan-dimensional city that contains within it areas of most every dimension in the omniverse.
--Charles Colombus, "A Working Guide to Ataniel Geography"

Cynystra

Cynystra is a mixed culture, and has been since its earliest origins of trade caravans traveling south from Shikintu and mixing with the native Celts of that region. Located to the far southwest of the continent, this Cynystra enjoys the best-protected natural borders of any country on Ataniel, controlling all the land south of the high Kharek Mountains and west of the Dyved wilderness. Cynystra is ruled by a benevolent dictator and is a powerful military nation with authoritarian internal politics. While there might be some question about civil freedom, the economy is strong and it cannot be denied that the government uses its authority and revenue for the defense and welfare of its people. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

Cynystra is pretty boring, but it's clean and well-kept-up. There's not much crime. Taxes are pretty high, but the public services are good. Two and a half stars. Your mileage may vary if, like, your evil ex-husband lives there.
--Threnody's travel guide

Some of the cities that have more of an international trade base have some fun nightlife, but it's difficult to find. They tend more towards exclusive gentlemen's clubs than establishments that are open to the public. But I would have to say that my personal enjoyment of the country went sharply downhill after 794.
--Khyrisse's mileage report
