It is said that when the Immortal Treid was slain, his heart was buried in the shadows of the ice, cursed by the Immortal Audrae. His people built a city atop the frozen wasteland in hopes of one day finding it and resurrecting their fallen leader.

There are two entrances into the Treidic Garrison and both are under tight guard to prevent enemy infiltration. One entry comes from the Hall of Statues from the south and the other entry from the Chasm to the north. The doors have small sliding panels to enable guards to query the visitor of their name and business before they are allowed entry.
The gate opens to an expansive open courtyard, where the surrounding mountains can be seen. Bordering the courtyard are two levels of windows. Opposite the entry, are a set of four windows on a third floor. The courtyard is always filled with Ellune in training, clad in ice training armor and sparring with practice weapons. Archery targets are pierced by lines of ice archers who are instructed to hone their skill. Large groups jog and are made to perform various bodywork exercises in heavy packs as part of their daily regimen. Several training officers oversee and even join in on the training. All soldiers perform at least one watch period of time training - recruits do double - in the beginning and end of the day. Once the horn sounds, signalling the end of the watch shift, training is ended and soldiers assemble to their respective guard posts and patrol units.
The three sides of the courtyard barring the side of the entry, have passages that lead off to the rest of the camp. Directly opposite the entry side is, on the ground floor, the Starion commander's office and living quarters. The next level up is the Myrion's office and quarters which contain a large map room where the officers gather and military literature. The Starion and Myrion gather each morning to plan the day and issue orders to all Clustions. Finally at the top is the Infinion's apartment, a fine and spacious office and house, overlooking the courtyard.
On the ground floor is a small space that serves as a hospital. It is filled with qualified physicians, medical students, and other practitioners. A larger hospital is located next to the Vault, serving the people of Treidhart.
Leading off to the left and right of the courtyard, are passages that have rows of doors. These doors lead to rooms for the quarters of Clusters (4 Tri or 12 Ellune soldiers). Each Cluster contains an ice bed with a footlocker adjacent to it for the soldier's personal belongings. Eight of these rooms are served by a small armory room for their weapons and on the other side, a small canteen where time can be spent socializing with the others, playing games and eating meals. Nearby is the significantly larger quarters of the Starion (commander of the Star).
The second level belong to special forces units - Elite Guards who are given their own quarters. Sappers and saboteurs are in different shared quarters, in groups of three. The Black Ice have their own quarters in a separate area altogether, though few know what is within this area.
