Volantis, a city of the East, is one of nine independent city-states collectively called The Free Cities. The closest of the Free Cities to Slaver’s Bay, Volantis is a major location for the slave market.

Tattoos are common among the people both as a way of recording and advertising their exploits, and as a means of permanently identifying themselves and their human chattel — thereby lessening the chance that their slaves might be stolen and resold. Servants and slaves will be tattooed by their masters, often upon the face, while Volantene sellswords are known to cover themselves in unusual designs indicating their prowess in battle.
