"City of Secrets"
The Free City of Hafayah at the Al-Kufr river is characterized by dark colors in its buildings and the dress of its citizens, who are somber, secretive and suspicious toward strangers. Politically the City of Secrets still suffers from the underhanded dealings following the poisoning of the former sultan and most of his family[as of when?].
