Holfung-Borzoi is the principality immediately south and slightly east of the base of the Jutland (Cimbrian Peninsula).

Holfung-Borzoi is the principality where Zulenna Luzhakna's family rules. At some point in the past two or three decades, the Heterodyne Boys designed Holfung-Borzoi's defenses , which subsequently allowed them to resist Baron Klaus Wulfenbach's takeover sufficiently to the point of negotiation rather than outright conquest.

Immediately north of Holfung-Borzoi might be the Duchy of Holstein. The principality itself seems to be the equivalent of, neighbor to or incorporate the Grand Duchy (Duchies) of Mecklenburg.

Following the Time-skip, Baron Gil receives an intelligence report that the principality and its feuding neighbor the Grand Duchy of Orcznik have both fallen under the control of the "Queen of the Dawn", who is presumably one of the women who has had a mental copy of The Other transferred into her brain.

Possibly relevant outside informationEdit

You will not find Holfung-Borzoi on maps in our world. You will find breed standards for Borzoi among the documents used by kennel clubs. Borzoi is Russian meaning "Quick Dog" — Borzoi are sighthounds, chasing their prey by detecting motion rather than scent, and the term is used in Russia for a group of breeds, but in English-speaking countries as a synonym for the Russian Wolfhound.

Holfung is a placename with a sort of Nordic-Teutonic sound to it and no equivalent as a geographical term in our timeline, but it appears to be a scientific term in German, a Turkish business term, and a surname in Chinese (and possibly other languages).
