Tirsos, also known as the Great City, is a city-state in the southern reaches of the continent.
For millennia, it has been the most populous city of the continent, although presently it is only but a shadow of its former self.
The word Tirsos is clearly not of Borost:Símic origin. If Tirsosi literature and legends are to be believed, the word originates from the language of the Draekar, where it purportedly means [shining] star. According to the Tirsosi mythos, Borost:Mandalos, a red dragon, commanded the primitive Tirsosím to settle the area, calling the location the future site of a "shining star" (Tirsos).
Despite the immense cultural heritage of Tirsos, the early history of the city-state cannot be traced with any amount of satisfactory precision.
According to the Tirsosím themselves, Borost:Mandalos, a red dragon, commanded the primitive Tirsosím to settle the area, calling the location the future site of a "shining star" (Tirsos). This, of course, cannot be verified, despite Tirsosi beliefs that Mandalos remains alive today and watches over their (and what they call "his") city.
Tirsos is a city placed in the Tirsosi Peninsula, at the southwest of the continent of Borost.
The Zeiden Bank operates a large and important branch in the city.
