|Part of||Soutlands |
The Lent is the westernmost section of the Soutlands, a division of the Haacobin Empire. It stretches from the Witherfouls and Dusthumlinde in the west to the Patricine in the east. Lentine refers to things originating from this region. It is the site of the Serenine, the southernmost of the three alternats of the Haacobin Empire. Lentine grand-cargoes, massive cargo vessels, hail from the Lent's ports.
In Latin, "lent" or "lenten" has various meanings associated with marginality and austerity, even sickness. It is also an archaic English word for Spring.
