The North Side referred to the slums of the city of Oar. During The Silver Spike, two thugs from the downtrodden North Side (Smeds Stahl and his cousin Tully Stahl) established their gang of four spike thieves. The dream of finally escaping the poverty of the North Side was what motivated them to retrieve the silver spike and sell it to the highest bidder. Another spike thief was Timmy Locan, whose parents were actually homeowners in the North Side but were still poor like everyone else.

The North Side was not spared when the Limper, Toadkiller Dog, and their ragtag force containing mainly savages from the Great Forest swept through Oar and sacked the city. According to Mrs. Cisco, an elderly resident, Timmy Locan's father and two brothers were all killed trying to put out fires, and his mother and sister were raped. Later, the neighborhood presumably suffered even more when the entire city was quarantined by the Nightstalker Brigade and suffered a cholera outbreak.
