Steen is a kingdom at the tip of a peninsula in southwestern Roshar.[1] As such, it only borders Liafor.

During the Silver Kingdoms era, it was part of Makabakam.[2] Noura describes them as a tricky bunch, and hints that they shouldn't be invited to the Urithiru talks along with the other Makabak representatives.[3]

Beard tells a tale about him swimming across a vat of dyes when in service to the Steen merchant lords.[4] The crew of First Dreams on its trip to Akinah is made up of Steen mercenaries.[5]

Just before the Battle of Thaylen Field, a report from Steen relayed to a meeting in Urithiru confirms that the early Everstorm reported by Shinovar has passed and also mentions that it is faster and more violent than previous storms. This comes just before the other revelations about the Eila Stele and the first Voidbringers.[6]

Prior to the voyage of the Wandersail to Aimia, Lopen indicates that men from Steen were present in Urithiru.[7] Specifically, he noted that their beards were wrapped in cords - a fashion that has been shown elsewhere in Roshar and the cosmere.[8][9]. Later, Nikli comments that 'ordinary people' in Aimia (i.e. not the Sleepless) wore their beards in the peculiar cord-like style of Steen.[10]
