After the disappearance of the Kufoo, the island was unreachable until the Imperial Navigators discovered a passage through the reef system surrounding the island. When they finally arrived on the island they found the Kufoo people had vanished without a trace.
The Empire of Galath claimed the island for its own and constructed a series of forts and battlements on the island. They also began to exile prisoners to the island. Directly controlling the island ultimately proved too costly, and the island was ultimately abandoned. Instead prisoners exiled to the island were simply released on its shores and expected to fend for themselves.
