The Kerath'en District, originally named Shamathen, was the lowest district of Ae'gura, bordering on the lake. People who worked the ferries between Ae'gura, the City Proper, and the outlying islands lived here, as did the boat repairers. It is also where A'gaeris lived after he was cast out of the Guild of Writers. The district was specifically intended by King Kedri to be a lower-class district, and so there were few large houses here, in contrast to the high and elite districts already located on the island. The district's original name, Shamathen, was given by King Kedri in honor of his mother, Shama.
