Varying in heights, stupendous rock cliffs gleaming a distinct champagne coloration are the Ãoni Coastal Region. At their feet lay the plentiful oceans of Tam'nýer—a'. The true treasure of the Ãoni's coastal homes are however what is hidden to the naked eye; a vast tunnel system carved into the rock & clay connecting the individual nests. The higher ranking Ãoni however, are indeed visible, as they tend to reside in the dryer cousins of the Muntade trees that grow solely out of the cliff-sides.
The bark and roots of the Muntade tree are vital in the construction of their homes as means of being load-bearing beams and archways of their homes. The Ãoni reside in cliff side caves and trees. The caves are large pockets carved out of the rock, nesting close together, and deeper into the cliffs, connected by a tunnel system.
The higher ups of the colony will most likely reside in whatever trees deemed safe enough to nest in growing out of said cliff side. Every Matriarch, in charge of her separate colony, and her immediate family reside in a tree that stands on the top of the cliff. This permits the Matriarch to watch over her colony more easily, and the colony's herd of Wôrdiţ.
Over time, the Ãoni Coast has become pillars of earth, as opposed to one solid piece of land. It suits their colonial lives perfectly, but while the Ãoni have wings, perhaps their climate isn't as conducive for the physical build as it could be, as there isn't a Tam'nýer—a''n week for them where they get less than 166mm (6.5 inches) of rain. This of course helps what land they do have grow good vegetation. Aside from the Sky-Coral Sea & the Emerald Isles, the Ãoni Coast is the only other location in Tam'nýer—a' that is constantly humid, as they fall under a Tropical rainforest climate on the Köppen-Geiger climate scale. This also means that the Ãoni, unless they leave their colonies, never truly get a sense of seasons changing.

Akup'ta-majidée is an Ãoni colony that is, for lack of a better term, the black sheep of all Ãoni colonies. When it comes to the Ãoni Coastal Region, other Ãoni colony matriarchs tend to not even acknowledge Akup'ta-majidée. In fact, its gotten so bad that there is a growing rejection of other Ãoni colonies refusing to trade with Akup'ta-majidée, so much to the point that some colonies won't even permit other fellow Ãoni from this particular colony to visit, even if they have relatives there. This is all due to Akup'ta-majidée's matriarch believing that their people need to change their ways and open their doors to other races, and desist in condemning their own people for leaving. It's completely revolutionizing the accepted way of worshiping Ŧ'ţ'ra-'kii.
While the rest of the world may find Akup'ta-majidée to be the most accepting, and destination dream to finally enter the world of the Ãoni, this colony suffers a high price to pay, as they are becoming more and more rejected and ignored by their peers, making life difficult for those that live there. However, they are staying afloat by making provision runs to T-'a'Ţăs'múr, and they have even ventured as far as Kewtz.
Akup'ta-majidée is the Ãoni colony on the island closest to the volcano off the east coast of T-'a'Ţăs'múr.
This glowing fungal forest is a seaside refuge underneath the Ãoni Coasts. The Giyu have taken refuge here after the Red Sands War that nearly destroyed their entire race. Many Giyu are born in now as it is the only true hatchery for them left. The rocky shores of the Ãoni Coast, and the protection from the chants of the Ãoni colonies themselves keeps any potential threats away from the nesting Giyu mothers who are trying to build some semblance of their race back from extinction.
The fungal forest provides dense coverage from the rough seas, the storms of the coasts, and even an array of nutrients that help the Giyu produce rich nesting grounds for their egg clutches. Without this refuge the Giyu would surely be extinct by now. For Giyu looking to mate, it has become a beacon to do so here as well, naturally, though there is no obligation to stay.
Zeska has no strict governance, but all are in agreement that the hatchlings and the nests are the main priority of the refuge. Older Giyu are welcome to live their lives in the community that is attempting to thrive, but they are also expected to keep up with maintaining the protection they need against anything from beneath the waters from trying to make their way in to fungal forests, as well as taking care of the eggs and infants.
