A map of Falme.

Falme is a city that lies at the far end of Toman Head.

History and geographyEdit

Falme is a harbor on the Aryth Ocean which lays to the west. It is the largest town on Toman Head and on the Almoth Plain, though actually not very big,[1] and is independent since the fall of Almoth.

The city was formerly known as Miereallen while a part of the nation of Safer during the Compact of Ten Nations.[2]

The unwalled [3] city contains streets of cobblestone,[4] dark stone buildings, and docks also of stone. The city rises up from the high cliff slopes of the hollow that make the harbor.[5]

Among the buildings in the town is The Three Plum Blossoms inn.

The peopleEdit

Fashion in Falme involves copious embroidery for both rich and poor. The wealthy sport intricately embroidered shirts, vests, and dresses,[5] while a woman of a more modest country life will wear embroidery on the chest of her long fleece coat.[6]

There is a community within Falme called Do Miere A’vron, meaning The Watchers Over the Waves. Located in a tower atop a cliff that overlooks the harbor,[5] they watch the sea and wait for the return of Artur Hawkwing’s armies that were sent to conquer lands across the Aryth Ocean.[7] However, when those armies do return at Falme in the form of the Seanchan, the Do Meire A'vron were punished, accused of watching for the wrong thing and forgetting what they should have been remembering. Their leader, the First Watcher, was placed in a cage, hung from one of their towers overlooking the harbor in Falme, and left to die. When the First Watcher died another was named and placed in the cage.[5]
