The Pens were a place where slaves were kept outside Neraka. They were located on the western side of the city in the White District. The pens were made of Drasil Trees that grew tightly together, and each had only one entrance in and out. A glyph of warding was on each pen, keeping would be rescuers from going in or the prisoners from coming out. The Pens were always overcrowded, and verged on the chaos inside of it most of the time. In later years, the Drasil Trees became a thirty-foot wooden fence.
They are overseen by the Penkeeper, and prisoners are brought in by the Nerakan Guard. Prisoners are kept in the Pens until either their family memebers or superiors come and bail them out.
