Gyza is a caravan city. It remains mostly ruined after being sacked by Macrinus during the War of the Crimson Elephant, but is still inhabited thanks to its strategic location, on the intersection of the trade route from Bisria and Hu'ut, and the roads to Seis and Kargan.

It was once home to a tiny city state in the Senet Desert, conquered by the Neruss, revived under a new ruler, and then conquered by the Satar. The entire Gyzan nation fled into the Parda Hills to reemerge after the tide of destruction had passed to rebuild their city.
