Old Rin is in need of more information! Old Rin is lacking a detailed History with events from Rowan and the Zebak and Rowan of the Bukshah concerning the compound and its history. The first of these books is the only time the compound is visited, however the second provides some more history.

Old Rin is a prisoner compound inside the Zebak city, shaped like a village, but fenced off from the rest of the city. It was home to the warrior slaves whom the people of Rin descended from, who originally descended from the people of the Valley of Gold. Three hundred years after the Zebak military brought the chosen, battle-ready and memory-wiped slaves to the island of Maris to invade, the only Rin people left behind were the weaker, smaller people. Three hundred years later, after birth rates had almost completely dried up, only Thiery and his grandchildren Norris and Shaaran remained, until Thiery were killed and the young ones escaped with Rowan, Perlain, Allun and Zeel's help.[1]
