Aloe is a prosperous republic and city-state. The Black Company was garrisoned there after campaigning alongside Whisper following the Battle of Charm. It was the setting for the short stories "Tides Elba", "Smelling Danger", and "Bone Candy".
Once every five years, Aloe is subjected to a storm featuring hail, ferocious wind, and torrential downpours. One of these storms occurred while the Black Company was garrisoned there.
