North Citadel was a stronghold in the north of Kolanse. It was also referred to as North Keep by the Forkrul Assail. It had a square tower with a rooftop platform, a main gate and battlements with eroded merlons, and was situated in/above a valley. There were caves in its vicinity. The Ses Mountains were to the north.
The stronghold was captured by Ganoes Paran and his Host and the citadel's throne was burned during the occupation. Orphaned children were found to be living in the caves. It was subsequently besieged by the Forkrul Assail, but the Host broke the siege and moved south into Kolanse.
