|“||I became the Sidra, ancient and deep.||”|
The Sidra River, or simply known as the Sidra is a broad, winding river sparkling like deepest shappire that flows through Velaris and sank into the sea gulf of the city. The Sidra is loitered by ships with sails of varying shapes, making it navigable. Two Palaces are located in the southern side of the Sidra and another two on the northern. Amren's apartment has a view of the Sidra River.
During his childhood, Rhysand would sneak out of the House of Wind and fly around the city, the Sidra River and the sea.
Rhysand gives Feyre a tour of the city of Velaris. They walk through the various Palaces in the city, located close to the Sidra River. Feyre learns about the city and how it was protected from Amarantha's rule. She also learns the names of the various parts of the city, including the Sidra River.
During Hybern's attack on Velaris, Feyre manipulates the Sidra River and bends it to her will. Feyre was gifted the power of water manipulation from Tarquin, one of the seven lords who resurrected her into a High Fae. She uses this power to manipulate the Sidra and create wolves out of water.
- The Gulf of Sidra, also known as the Gulf of Sirte, is a is a body of water in the Mediterranean Sea on the northern coast of Libya. It is unknown whenever the Sidra River depicted in the series is inspired by this sea, or whenever this link is unintentional.
- A shop mentioned several times in ACOMAF is the shop with "lacy underthings," and is located near the Sidra. Rhysand and Feyre seduce each other with the mention of this shop.
