A town in Valond that is introduced in Chapter 1 of Ascension, Davenside contains the Nifty Fox Inn, which Sky claims is the "best place to find every kind of lowlife." In the years prior to Chapter 1, Aida frequented the Nifty Fox Inn in order to steal gold from the drunkards. Sometimes, Sky accompanied her to pull off the "drunken fight" trick, which resulted in a greater profit. However, Tahn, Sky's father, objected to this practice because he believed it put Sky in too much danger.
The Crimson Forest to the south of Davenside contains Aida's camp. Aida's camp is very simple, consisting of two tents, one for men and one for women, in a grassy clearing. Sky, Tahn, Cal, Jalen, Emsay, and Brale live in the camp with Aida prior to the start of Chapter 1. At the beginning of Chapter 1, Aida has lived in the camp for six years, ever since she was saved by Sky and her father. In Chapter 1, the Eagles ambush Aida's camp, killing all of the residents except Sky and Aida, who were out exploring the ruined temple in Ionmarsh during the attack, and stealing Sky's mother's journals.
