Corus, the capital city of Tortall, rangeed on the northern and southern banks of the Oloron River. It was situated in western Tortall, half a day's travel from Port Caynn. The city was made of different districts and was home to the domain of the Rogues, the crooked population of Tortall. The royal palace was situated on an hill south of the Olorun. Around the middle of the fifth century of the Human Era a new royal university was founded in Corus.

In the capital people of different nationalities and professions could be found as could exotic fruits and other products. Especially on market days, many people from the countryside came to the city, which made Corus look especially bright.[1]

Districts

Corus is divided into different districts, as revealed in detail throughout Terrier. The Provost's Guard is organised in correspondence to the districts and each district has its own guard station, except Temple and Palace Districts, which have their own guards. The districts of the Court of the Rogue are mostly the same with the exception that the Rogue also has an additional district, Waterfront District. The names of the districts are as follows:

It is not known whether the names or borders of these districts changed over the two hundred year gap between Terrier and Song of the Lioness.
