Kurald Galain was the Warren of Darkness and Elder Night. The Elder Warren was referred to by Tattersail as the 'Breath of Chaos'. This was the Warren used by the Tiste Andii such as Anomander Rake and other agents of Darkness and Night such as Draconus.
Kurald Galain gifted the world with darkness and night.
Kurald Galain was the primary setting of the Kharkanas Trilogy. Several hundred thousand years before the events of Gardens of the Moon, it was the ancestral land of the Tiste and adjacent to the lands of the Jaghut, Azathanai, Forulkan, Thel Akai, Jheleck, and Dog-Runners.
The Tiste capital was Kharkanas from where Mother Dark ruled. The Tiste nobility largely built their great houses and fortresses along the Dorssan Ryl river which crossed the entire realm from north to south.
