Kirov is located on the north bank of Lake Toran and is a major trading city. Due to its location in southern Dana, it is also a center for trade with the City-State of Jowston. Over time, the town had become more rustic and was quite sleepy by the time of the Gate Rune War. The lax nature of the Scarlet Moon Empire's control meant a lot of smuggling normally took place in the city although during the war it was mentioned that Imperial control had increased.
Following the war, the chef Lester opened a specialty stew restaurant called "Lake Surface Sunset", sparking a boom of specialty shops in the town. The most recommended dish is the "Marie's Daily Routine".
The biggest house in Kirov belongs to Kun To, known as the 'Boss' of Kirov by some. Located north of Kirov is the village of Kalekka.
