Kel Sela (pronunciation: kɛl ˈsɛ.la) is the third-largest city in Tuanmali and capital of Kīmi Kīmis We, Tuanmali's fourth-largest state. Located in the heart of Kīmi Kīmis We in the northwest corner of the country, Kel Sela is by far the largest population center in the western states at nearly 1.1 million people, more inhabitants than the entire states of Altūnwelēnīn, Bēdīhod, and Zhuldu Dzitīn Del combined.


The name Kel Sela first appears on documents from the late 1800s, but the source of the name is unclear. In Azen, Kel Sela translates to either "Lake Town" or "Shadow Town"; as the city is situated on a river, not a lake, the latter etymology seems more plausible if it was indeed originally named by the Tuanmali. However, some have argued the name is actually from Tuanmali settlers mishearing an older Mwamban name, though what that name could have been is unclear.

If "Town of Shadows" is the correct translation, some have suggested it could refer to the mountains Kel Sela sits among, or the thick rainforest surrounding it, or the darkness of nearby mines.


Human settlement at the site of modern-day Kel Sela far predates dalar presence in Boroso, but it was a small village without much notability until the late 1800s, when <undefined mineral> was discovered in the nearby mountains. A major <mineral> rush immediately followed, with prospective miners from all over Boroso--and even some from Baredina or Miraria--flocking to the area. Almost overnight, the small town became a city with thousands of inhabitants.

During Kīmi Kīmis We's period of semi-independence, following their breakaway from Mwamba in the late 1800s, Kel Sela was the natural choice for capital, as it was by far the largest city. When Kīmi Kīmis We joined the Tuanmali federation in 1921, the city remained the capital.
