Menekai is the grim home of the brutal Order of the Red Shadows of Herpa, a fighting order dedicated to the god Agrik, the Emperor of Flame. Under Larga Gydsilen, their coarse and brutish grandmaster, the Red Shadows have made Menekai one of the richest fiefs in the Kingdom of Rethem by exploiting the region's mineral wealth.
