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]


Steen has an area of around 156,000 km2, making it one of the smallest Rosharan nations, larger than only Alm, Bavland, and Tu Fallia.[11]. In comparison to real world nations, area is very close to the land area of Suriname.

It is situated on the southwestern coast of Roshar, and is surrounded on three sides by the Aimian Sea and Southern Depths. It shares a border only with Liafor.[1]
