Descendants of ancient Imaskari slaves, the people of Chessenta are obsessed with physical conflict. They value their war heroes highly, hailing them as celebrities and potential rulers. Chessenta’s national enmity is focused mostly on the resurrected nation to the east, High Imaskar.
Despite half the nation being devastated by a cast-off piece of Abeir, elements of the former Chessenta survive and even prosper. Although many Chessentan cities were destroyed in this tumultuous transposition, others survived and accepted refugees from the obliterated lands of Chondath, Unther, and even Mulhorand. The country involuntarily ceded all its western lands, those most radically altered in the Year of Blue Fire, to the Abeiran genasi of Akanul.
