The village is a rural area that consists of a small and clustered community of houses. Dirt roads wind about the village, and the houses and shelters are deserted, run-down and dilapidated after a fire catastrophe. The village is surrounded by a vast area of burnt flora.
The village was originally lively with an abundance of inhabitants and and plentiful fields of grass. A river extends to the outskirts of the village, where the Mackens had settled in.
However, due to Luka Macken's contract with a demon, the village was utterly destroyed with fire, which left only one survivor. In the aftermath of the disaster, the village was irreversibly reduced to a heap of rubble and ashes.
The villagers were generally intolerant, and deemed those less fortunate as inferior—quite notably, the orphans. This narrow-mindedness was demonstrated when a baker threw a stone at Luka Macken, and when a pair of kids ganged up on the same victim to bully him. As stated by Jim Macken, as soon as their parents died, the villagers all treated them like nuisances.
