Lys, an island city of the East, is one of nine independent city-states collectively called The Free Cities. Lys is a city of comforts, where the people enjoy rich food, sweet perfumes, and pleasure houses. Situated south of Tyrosh off the coastline of the Disputed Lands, the city spreads over several islands and is one of the most populous of the Free Cities.
Among the Lyseni, blue eyes and blonde hair are quite common. In addition to the great temple dedicated to the Lord of Light, Lys is also home to a native love goddess. In contrast, the alchemists of Lys are known for extremely lethal poisons, such as the so-called “tears of Lys.”
