Aimia is an island nation/kingdom separated from the rest of Roshar by the Aimian Sea.
Aimia was one of the Silver Kingdoms that survived the Desolations and was a nation in the Era of Solitude. More recently, it has retained the same borders, though it has been scoured of most of its people, probably in warring over the valuable creatures known as lanceryn. When the last lanceryn was killed, it was assumed that there were no surviving beasts with gemhearts until the chasmfiends of the Shattered Plains were discovered.
Aimians are not human. There are two races of Aimians: Siah and Dysian. They have deep blue, crystalline eyes and blue fingernails. They might cast shadows the wrong way - toward light, instead of away from it. All Aimians could change the markings on their skin at will. This talent can be used to take notes.
