Journey of Embers
The capital city of Isidora, Leon is said to be named after Isidora’s first queen Leona. Leona was instrumental in maintaining and building up the city while her husband, King Zios, was busy protecting the lands from hordes of rampaging orcs.
Leon is the home of the kings. Each king is greatly honored with statues of each one leading up the door of the castle. With each new king being added further down the path. Leona is the only queen that has been immortalized in stone and can be found standing across from her husband Isidora’s first king Zios. These last two statues stand by the gate to the castle with the castle path running between them.
Leon is a circular city that was built up over the years. The oldest part of the city is in the center of the city, with several different walls creating radial rings. The newest buildings are on the outer edge and it is clear that Leon expanded outwards throughout the ages as she became more and more protected.
The city displays many fine statues other than those of it’s former royalty, these can be found along the defensive walls of the city as a memorial to all the brave and valiant warriors of Isidora. Along the top of the wall statues of soldiers and their attire throughout the ages, and also along the base of the wall a similar display of cavalrymen. Keen historians can denote which soldier came from certain eras due to the attire of the statues. To anyone that can call Isidora home the wall brings about a sense that the ancestors of the past will forever guard the city they loved. To an outsider Isidora’s walls lined with stone soldiers can be rather intimidating.
