The province of Penburn lies next to L'Petrie, split by the Kingway.

The Lady-Governor Penburn was chosen for a delegation to make contact with Eletia in the north; being killed in an ambush by groundmites, governership passed to her young son Hendry. He has innocent, unmarred features, but an impressive composure. He mistakes Karigan for Mapstone with a blush when she is filling in for the captain at a meeting, and was amused upon recalling he heard about a G'ladheon and her ride to Darden on market day wearing nothing but her skin.

Laren Mapstone hails from Penburn province.
