planet:nekenalos:asheenagiji:katal

“Katal is particularly notorious amongst the kavkema. They're practically superstitious about it. It has a high security prison…” – it was the nearest word the English language offered him to describe where the Nayabaru put the kavkema – “…and even Evenatra has rarely been able to rescue anyone from it. As the Nayabaru advance technologically – and despite their inherent neurological shortfalls, they do advance – Katal will eventually become impregnable to ver, as long as ve remains starved of Thread.” A Thread Between The Stars: Satellites

Katal is the largest Nayabaru settlement on Asheenagiji (on Nekenalos). It sits roughly at the halfway point between the coastline and the nearest pronounced mountain range, putting it a few hundred kilometres away from the coast.

In regards to the efforts of the Nayabaru to capture kavkema, it's considered the most notorious location, more feared than its equatorial complement, Tain. In A Thread Between The Stars, Valcen cites Katal as one of the “focal points of Evenatra's efforts”1), though he warns about searching only there, since the weapon would share that same focus.
