The city was founded as a small trading station by a now-defunct company in the year 121. In year 165, Saint Clen saved the city from an oncoming orcish horde, slaying an archfiend unarmed in the process. The site of this "Holy Victory" as it is referred to by the local populace, is now a shrine to the northwest of the city and the party's base. Saint Clen went on to found the Temple of the Holy Victory that year, which brought more tourism and industry to the city. Though he died in year 189 and was interred in the catacombs beneath the church, he is still revered by many locals.

Cairn Estate

Deep in the woods to the southwest of Kena, Cairn Estate is a hunting lodge that is vacant except for a skeleton crew for most months out of the year. Owned by Kena leadership, it is rented out to many local lords and aristocrats for use as a home while sport hunting in the surrounding woods. The estate was originally built in the year 261 after the wealth of the city grew enough to support such an investment.
