[O]n the rocky coast is the province of Kusheth, where Kushiel made his home, all the way up to the Pointe d'Oeste. It is a harsh land, like its namesake.
Phèdre's narration, Kushiel's Dart[2]

Kusheth is the westernmost province of Terre d'Ange. It was founded by Kushiel. Kushelines are characterized by a sadistic streak and an interest in the sharper pleasures. Because of this, anguissettes are often drawn to them. According to Kusheline lore, any Kusheline who kills an anguissette will face ten thousand years of torment in the afterlife.

Geography Edit

Most of Kusheth is a peninsula, bordered on three sides by the sea. The westernmost point is known as the Pointe d'Oeste. Morhban is located there, and there is a temple to Kushiel on a small island off the shore. The Tsingani consider Kusheth to be the Outermost West. It is bordered to the east by Azzalle, Namarre, and L'Agnace and to the south by Siovale. Kusheth is a land of contrasts. The coastline is harsh and rocky, but the interior is lush and green. The Lusande River runs through the province. The Hippochamp, a green field where the Tsingani hold horse fairs every year, is also located in Kusheth.

Noble Houses Edit

Morhban is the ruling house of Kusheth. House Shahrizai, being a prominent and powerful house, objects to this. They claim to be the oldest and purest Kusheline bloodline and that House Morhban is a lesser Kusheline bloodline.

Other Kusheline houses include Charlot, Bonnel, and Maignard.
