Kalekka lies north of Kirov, in the region of Dana. The town itself was razed during a war between the Scarlet Moon Empire and the City-State of Jowston in SY 448. The official story is that the armies of the City-State razed the town and massacred the population. However, the truth is that the Kalekka Incident was orchestrated by the Empire itself in order to bolster flagging support for its war with Jowston.
In the past, its specialty was the export of cotton. Since the massacre, the town has lain mostly abandoned and in ruins, although several people still lived there at the time of the Gate Rune War. Following the war, the Toran Republic began to encourage people to move to Kalekka in the hopes of rejuvenating the town but uptake has been slow due to the memories of the town's past being hard to shift.
