Peft was once a permanent settlement based around the Bayan Oasis. However, decades ago, when changes in climate moved the oasis further south, Peft was quickly abandoned and became a miserable ruin with half-collapsed buildings standing like tombs.
There are also records of ninjutsu training taking place in the ruins of Peft decades ago, under the guidance of Kersius, known as the founder of Ionian-style ninjutsu. Both Regius and Guilleriga could benefit from his technique after discovering his tools in the ruins.
In HIY 300, meetings between Rochelle Kollek and Ionian agents took place in these ruins. The Vermilion Axe also met the Company at these ruins, Aaron Barcai hoping to forge an alliance to march on the Great Wall of Achlites but in vain.
