This city was the meeting-point for Harry Iskinder is the main character in the book, The Sundered. He's nineteen years old and not very tall, to his great lament. However, he's in great shape. His diet is Sundered-designed, lean protein and a perfect balance of nutrition. He's been active since childhood, both in the Academy and out on the Black Water from the age of fourteen. His skin... Iskinder and Artemus Artemus Parnum is Harry Iskinder's mentor. He's brilliant, and deeply determined that mankind survives whatever comes next. He's also tasted Sundered flesh - something even Jason Iskinder knew better than to do - and as a result, is no longer purely human.... after the disastrous events in One of the cities in the world of The Sundered. This city is far north, and commonly called a "snow-city" - which basically just means it's in a cold climate and deals with snow and ice..... It also showed a glimpse of lingering I don't really need to tell you about this place. You live there. If you want pre-history according to the Ever-Dying, you can check Wikipedia. Unfortunately, that won't tell you the real story. Much of what was has been hidden for the sake of keeping the words apart, but I am slowly building a timeline which I will eventually publish... cultures. The original 53 survivors came from all around the world, selected by The The modern, PR-friendly name for The Tohu - not that those folks have any idea their organization had its beginning in anything other than the human mind.... (also knows as The Tohu is ancient. Frustratingly, it's also deeply mysterious. Whether it's an individual, a negative "force," the devil, or just a really persistent group of monsters is completely unknown. The Tohu has certainly manifested as all these things, and no matter what anyone does, it continually resurfaces. It existed before Notte arrived on the scene, so it's at least 15,000..., the Void, Apocalypse, and many other similarly dramatic names) as the only ones worthy of surviving the human race’s end. They brought with them what they could: cultural items and accoutrements, clothing, recipes, samples of food carefully flash-frozen and stored, texts a4nd vids on religion and history and mythology and legend.
Only 53 people had been chosen, and it was not nearly so egalitarian as to include one from each surviving country. Four were caucasian; twenty-two fell into the broad category of “Asian,” including refugees as disparate as Pakistanian and Bruneian; fifteen were from the remnants of the north and south American continents; twelve were from all over the continent of Africa.
The ideal of mixing and mashing cultures never really works as well as some hope. In time, various groups with even mildly similar backgrounds split up.
Those in the southern hemisphere were largely from the so-calle “Asian” countries, which in essence led to their Sundered-powered development of spices, oils, and other goods required to conttinue what lifestyle they eventually settled on.
