The Khivani Roshate originated with the fall of the Siran Roshate, the most powerful state of the Maninist Nahsjad. That state splintered into several pieces, most notably the Airani Roshate to the north and the Khivani around the River Peko and the Lovi Sea to the south. Traditionally the more fundamentalist and extremist of the Maninist states, the Khivani warred with the other roshates for some time before finally falling to an invasion by the Savirai from the east.
