A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

Xian is a faerie territory located somewhere in the Continent.


During the War between mortals and faeries that took place five hundred years before the events of A Court of Thorns and Roses, Xian allied with the Loyalists, and therefore believed that mortals should be slaves of the faeries. Nuan's father and mother were born in this territory but moved to Prythian so their children could have a better future. Thesan's mother was also born in Xian and like Nuan's family, moved to the Dawn Court.

A large majority of the Dawn Court is made up of people from Xian.

A Court of Wings and Ruin[]

During the meeting between the High Lords of Prythian in the Dawn Court, Thesan introduces Nuan who has an antidote for the faebane. Beron Vanserra is wary of Nuan as she has Xian heritage and questions her motives. Xian supported the Loyalists, and Beron wishes to know what interests Nuan serves. Thesan reminds him that his own mother came from that kingdom. Feyre had once wondered if the body that Amren took was designed after their people due to their similar eye shape.


  • Due to what Thesan says, it could be understood that Xian was located in the part of the continent that was below the wall, since if several of its residents had to move, it could be because the faeries could not stay south of the wall.
