The Ironk is the legendary being that lives deep beneath Sun Island, within the structure known as Nethlekempt Farrows.
Much knowledge about the Ironk has been secreted away by the Rooted Empire, which has also locked the Farrows behind a gigantic security complex.[reference needed] The following facts are only known in detail by the most senior Empire members:
- Physics and other natural processes are distorted in proximity of the Ironk; the Empire has used this from time to time for high-technology experiments that have occasionally gone terribly wrong.[reference needed]
- The Ironk is related to the Pit Thing in some capacity.[reference needed]
- The Ironk is tied to the fundamental forces that regulate existence in the Eighth, and in a way, is directly responsible for the Turning.[reference needed]
