Island of Cabrera
The smallest of the two islands that make up the region of Modisia, within the Refuge of Medonia

[top]Description

The Island of Cabrera is the smallest of the two large islands that make up the region of Modisia. It is virtually uninhabited bar a number of small fishing families which use the shallow and warm waters surrounding the island to collect oysters and harvest their pearls for trade with the larger village of La Quista.

[top]History

The only notable historical information on the small island is that its shallow and calm harbors were often used as a base by Barbari pirates from which they would attack La Quista, Medonia (city) and Port Alyxandrya. For this reason, in 9700s a small castle, Castell de Cabrera, was built at the harbor entrance and was manned by a small garrison of Modisian Mariners. However, after the Aelyrian Empire purged the area of pirates and the Imperial Navy began to patrol the waters of the Sea of Diana, Castell de Cabrera fell into disuse and disrepair and now stands empty upon the island.
