The vast palace where the emperor lives is the focal point, with all the districts and communities of the city spreading outward. The city is well fortified, and full of alleys to get lost in. The city prospers from it's skilled iron industry, producing weapons and tools. The west side of the city is known for being a breeding ground for disreputable sorts. As the situation outside the walls worsens, more people are flocking into the city seeking work, food, a home, or simply a better life.
Involvement in the storyline
At first sight, the capital city seems to be irrelevant to the present story but as the plot goes on, it becomes a very important location. This is where the Kutou Special Taskforce often base and clash with the Genbu Seven for a desperate battle, until the time came when Hokkan began freezing over, causing the spread of disease, poverty, hunger, and death. In recent chapters the citizens are revolting against the King Tegiru, who is leading a luxurious life inside the castle despite the cries of his subjects; it is clear that Touran wants King Temudan back to the throne.
