(population 72,000) Located in the Ta'lal Islands, Azhara is the capital of the Emirate of Al’Kethai.

Azhara is widely regarded as one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world of Oris, and one of the greatest seaports of the Vhan Myr.

The city has a cosmopolitan nature, because Emir Ekkros Charadi of Al'Kethai has decreed that all cultures and peoples living here are to be treated equally and respectfully.

Based on the Emir's benevolence, one can find large ethnic minorities of Thannish, Hakeen, and Daroon folk here; although over half the city's population is still made up of Eloysians.

For centuries, the peoples of Al'Kethai have been known all over the world as the "Azhari," a term derived from this city.

As one of the greatest seaports found in the world of Oris; the busiest section of Azhara is its sprawling harbor district.

At any given time, as many as 1,000 assorted merchant vessels from Ilsenene, Orel, Rhaygos, Malvatis, Styr, the Seven Cities of Bronze, and Yamada can be found in Azhara's vast "Emerald Harbor."
