Bilming is a port city in the Elendel Basin on Scadrial.[1] It is the only major port city in the Basin other than Elendel, and it is a center of industry.[2] The city's symbol is a tortoise.[3]


Bilming is located on a peninsula on the Sea of Yomend.[1] A railway connects it to Elendel.[1]


Bilming maintains a large fleet of clipper ships and cargo ships in its "impressive" harbor, and it has recently added warships known as "Pewternauts" with armored hulls and gun turrets.[3]

One of the Set's hidden training compounds is located in Bilming.[4]

The tallest building in Bilming is a skyscraper called the Shaw, so named because it was reminiscent of the spires of Kredik Shaw. This building was intended to be used by the Set as a launching point for a rocket intended to destroy Elendel.[5]


Bilming was created as part of the reshaping of Scadrial during the Catacendre.[6]

Relationship with Elendel[edit]

Bilming's status as an alternative port to Elendel appears to have caused some friction between the two cities. Elendel's former governor, Replar Innate, once made hollow promises about raising tariffs on imports that come from Bilming.[7] Lord Bastien Severington, the mayor of Bilming, invited a number of senators from Elendel to the introduction of the Pewternauts as a gesture of friendship, only to have a senator named Inis Julien publicly call them pointless "toys".[3]

In 342 PC, Devlin Airs spoke to Waxillium Ladrian at Kelesina Shores's party and warned him that civil war was brewing.[2] Wax listened to Lord Severington give an anti-Elendel speech at the party and realized that Bilming had enough power to spearhead a conflict.[8][2]
