A relatively young colony inhabited by the Kyorl'solenurn, in the southwest region of the Rim.
There are two parts to the colony: the upper settlement and the underground community.
The upper colony consists of around 18 humble communal buildings, where drowussu singles and families share space. The colony also had multiple terraced ponds built into the hills surrounding the colony, where farmers would typically raise fish, grow culture pools and other necessities. During winter, these pools freeze over, forcing the drowussu to take to foraging in the woods instead--when resources are scarce, citizens turn to the guidance of inquisitors to determine when logging commences on living tree. Farming is also an important part of the colony, and every citizen works together to till the fields during the spring melt.
The colony was the site of an attack between Ariel's forces and Sarghress Legionnaires hunting them.
Those who live in Shikomei are entirely drowussu, and mostly young colonists reside here, although there are some elder drowussu who have migrated here. Tainted lost ones also have a presence here, thanks to Anahid's new policy of forgiveness. However, there are still many drowussu who see the ver'drowendar as a threat, and thus tensions are thick between the two groups.
