- For another meaning of "Eye of Sothis", please see Eyes of Sothis.
The Eye of Sothis is the only island in the Crimson Canal; the canal connects the Osirian capital of Sothis to the River Sphinx a dozen miles away.
The ovoid island holds the headquarters of the city watch—the Eyes of Sothis—in the First Fortress on the northern end. Two smaller garrisons protect the public bazaar and the Black Dome.
At the center of the island, a large public plaza allows access to bridges across the canal tall enough to allow the passage of ships underneath them; contains a reconstructed obelisk to Azghaad; and provides a space for food vendors, merchants, and visitors.
The southern edge of the island holds warehouses and commercial docks, as well as 'the Mote': the center of the cult of Norgorber in Osirion.
