The fourth of the Pearl Cities, Cenodorran is also known as the Green City. This is partially due to the green tint to the marble the city is built with, but also the extent to which plants are utilized in the design of the city and support the local economy.

After the Red Fatigue plague of 186 AE and subsequent sacking of the city for their stores of medicine, Cenodorran has built much stronger defenses surrounding the city. For the first time in centuries, the city was expanded with armor-plated military fortifications fitted with 10-inch guns built out into the Linnead River on either side of the city's ports, in addition to defensive walls. The city-facing sides of these walls quite beautiful, decorated with various carvings and murals, built in such a way as to be aesthetically consistent with the rest of the city.

The green tint from the serpentine present in the stone pairs well with the plants used all over the city to keep temperatures down. Ivy-covered walls and pergolas dripping with blooming flowers hanging over city streets are common, giving the feeling of walking through lightly-shaded forest even in the middle of a bustling city.
