It was started up by Kohza and Toto (with Toto serving as the mayor) to become a rest stop since it is in between many cities in the area. As such it prided itself in its inns.
It was deserted by everyone due to three years of drought except for Toto, who remained with his city to try to dig up the water once more. It was further destroyed by sandstorms caused by Crocodile. The Rebels, headed by Kohza, one of the founders, settled their base here before moving to Katorea due to a lack of supplies. The Straw Hat Pirates came here only to find a sandstorm raging which is later revealed to be Crocodile's doing to prevent Toto from getting the water he dug up with Luffy's help.
