Isana Pura was the southern capital of the Kingdom of the Thaumaturgs, holding this position as it was also its ritual centre. The city itself was located in a valley, with its surrounds encompassing a large amount of fields or other agriculturally based areas, with a complex irrigation system as a part of it. The larger city area was approximated to house one million citizens, with the city's streets being like a maze as the many squat buildings were constructed similarly. Towards the centre of the city lay a larger compound, home to the city's Thaumaturg masters, which was also identifiable from its towers, bell-shaped and pointed, yet domed.
The Thaumaturg compound itself was largely deceiving, having a number of squat towers over it, making it appear to be larger than the other buildings around. This however was not where the Thaumaturgs worked, they largely kept to a subterranean tunnel system, where the bulk of their classrooms, dormitories and morgues - as their primary interest was the investigation of the human body - were all held.
In Blood and Bone
Isana Pura was the first city that the Adwami raid reached. The city put up very little resistance, with only a small number of Thaumaturg mages and no soldiers (bar the yakshaka bodyguards) present in the city, resulting in a swift victory for the Adwami, their mercenary employees, and the Shaduwam who took advantage of the Adwami raid to take vengeance on the Thaumaturg.
