North Burb is a South Plateau town near the northeast edge of the Embry Commonwealth. The town is home to many Lightbearers, and has a Lightbearer temple on its south side. The town is recognized as the largest producer of medical supplies in the Plateau. It is also home to Sister Kenyon, the mother of Timothy, a disturbed boy who had murdered his teacher, left town, and later reappeared under the name of Loki. He founded the Blade Dancers, and now leads that organization as part of his delusion of being a god. He directs their actions from his command center in the Junk Fortress northeast of Embry Crossroads.
