The Monastery is the affectionate name given to an abandoned military structure loacted deep in the southern jungle. It currently houses a small colony of 50 or so members who have devoted their lives to living harmoniously with the land.
Members of The Monastery have been referred to as 'cult-like,' which does not seem to deter them in their practices. They remain open and welcoming to visitors and are known for helping travellers who have become lost or injured. The group is currently comprised of peoples from both Santri and Carissi backgrounds, and they would welcome individuals from any other background if such persons were interested in joining.
The Monastery overlooks a cliff that is generally regarded as the barrier between civilization and the unknown and uninhabitable Southern wilds.
Angora, a unique young woman, hails from The Monastery.
Members lead a simple life mostly comprised of tending to crops and making improvements to the small community. They are dedicated vegetarians and despite their name, not conventionally religious. Instead, great focus is given to attaining spiritual harmony with the environment and other living creatures. Both adults and children are encouraged to meditate and spend time alone, in addition to their interactions with others.
The now ruined complex was once used by Caris during the Thirty Years War, under the military name Fort Absol. As the southernmost outpost, it initially housed intelligence and other classified materials, but fell out of use gradually due to its inaccessibility.
