The Chuen were a small, traditionalist Shou society based in the Xiousing district of Marsember. Their name literally meant "The Pure".[1]


The Chuen's beliefs bordered on xenophobia and members had a strong dislike of non-Shou. Members ran Shou-only businesses and harassed native Marsembans who visited Xiousing. The Chuen wrongly believed Duc-Sum Li established Xiousing to bring about Shou dominance of Cormyr.[1]
