One of the cities in the world of The Sundered, Danton isn’t doing so well by the time Harry comes to visit it.
Far away from the economic boom-towns of the Cape Cities, Danton’s limited technology was ill-repaired, and their Sundered Ones are weak and few. As a result, the city is slowly dying. Hygiene – necessary for humans – is fairly low-priority, and crime is on the rise. Gangs aren’t uncommon (as Harry found out when he ran into Bakura’s small and malleable owner). Their local Academy and Soothsayers are both run-down and on the edge of desperate.
Danton is one of the cities willing to develop Testy, which is the human’s attempt to weaponize Motherwater.
