Mak'aru is the capital of the makrura civilization located in the Eye, underneath the Maelstrom. It is built into the Scintal Reef, and the buildings and other structures appear almost organic. The city is built on a series of coral terraces, and the layout protects the makrura's egg clutches. Makrura guards range from Mak'aru throughout the Scintal Reef, which they consider their territory. The city is not far from Nazjatar.
The lobsterlike makrura hate the naga and are their chief enemy. They don't take kindly to outsiders of any kind, but their war with the naga makes them potential allies. They are protective of their homeland, but perhaps if skilled diplomats approached some of their people near the shores, it would be possible to maneuver a meeting with their mysterious leaders. Certainly the makrura would be valuable companions, given their physical and magical prowess and their skills underwater.
