The Vein

Overview

The Vein (葉脈水系 [youmyaku suikei] or 'veins of a leaf water system' in Japanese) is a river system that runs through central Shroud southward. The West Vein (西の葉脈 [nishi no youmyaku] or 'west veins of a leaf' in Japanese) has its source in the Jadeite Flood, although the source of the East Vein (東の葉脈 [higashi no youmyaku] or 'east veins of a leaf' in Japanese) is unknown somewhere to the north, possibly in the Whispering Gorge. The two Veins unify south of Bentbranch Meadows, and together flow to the Mirror.

West of the West Vein is Bentbranch, east of the East Vein is Greentear, and located between the two branches of the Vein is the Jadeite Thick. It is unknown if this water system is supposed to have been in place prior to the Calamity, as although some unnamed streams flowed through Bentbranch in version 1.x, the Vein wasn't present. This may be a retcon or a result of the Calamity, there is no evidence to support either way.

Locations

Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge (虹架けの滝 [nijikake no taki] or 'rainbow-suspended waterfall' in Japanese) is actually a waterfall on the East Vein. It falls down from the cliff that leads up to the Lifemend Stump in Greentear, although the course of the river above the cliff is unknown. There is a permanent rainbow suspended at the top half of the waterfall, which is where it gets its name.
