The Dactyl nest is an imposing mountain to the north of Ioka where Dactyls roost. At its summit, one can see the far ocean below span to the horizon. Lavos was briefly visible as the Red Star from this position. The nest was utilized by the people of Laruba primarily, who controlled the Dactyls. The Laruba chief lent them to Ayla during the raid on the Tyrano Lair, as the lair was inaccessible otherwise. The nest presumably eroded after the Ice Age beset prehistoric times.
