Rock of Blood

Roche de Sanc, la Roche du Sang

A cliff near the city of La Choine, where King Evalach of Sarras (Evelake) fought a battle against King Tholomer of Babylonia. Evalach was nearly defeated, but a holy White Knight appeared and routed Tholomer’s forces. The enormous bloodshed at the battle stained the cliff red, giving it its name.
