Merab is the largest of Thuvia’s city states, and the closest thing the land has to a capital city. It was here that Artokus Kirran discovered the sun orchid elixir, and the city is still renowned for its alchemists. It is ruled by Ilepodus, Patron of Merab. The city’s patron deity is Sarenrae. As one of Thuvia’s five city states, once every five years it is the city’s turn to sell six vials of the prized sun orchid elixir to foreign bidders.
