Ah is primarily located in the land of the setting moons, which not only refers to the location where the moons of Hereva set, but also the dragons who find comfort in their last days. Ah and the dragons live peacefully together; the dragons finding comfort in a spiritual place, and Ah in guiding the spirits of the dragons to the heavens.
Robes are used to signify the level of Ah's adepts. Wasabi's robes are white with red, signifying her level of connection with the spirit world. Adepts at lower levels are given red robes, signifying their level of connection with the body. As adepts progress they receive robes with more white in them. The level system seems quite complex to outsiders, but folks inside of Ah can instinctively tell what level someone is by the colors of their robes.
Ah uses a complex system of robe styles and decorative bone hairpieces in order to convey status. Most of Ah's many adepts wear red with decorative white bones. Only the knights of Ah wear bones that have been tinted black through a magical ceremony. Wasabi, the leader of Ah, wears a distinctive white robe with a complex black bone hairpiece adorning the back of her hair. Wasabi's white robes signify her level of connection with the spirit world. Only Wasabi is permitted to wear the white robes.
There are several known levels of adepts for Ah. The first are the initiates. These are adepts that are taught in the school through communal learning. They do not leave the school during this period. The initiates are tasked with many filing and processing duties while in the school, though they are not permitted in the more classified areas of the school. Initiates who prove themselves worthy graduate and become wanderers. These are the most commonly found members of Ah in Hereva. They travel throughout Ah with minimal provisions on various journeys lead by either the spirits or Wasabi (or both). Some adepts travel over Ah on young dragons. These riders are selected by the dragons and form a special bond between dragon and rider. These riders are given special privileges in the school of Ah.
The most secretive and exclusive level of Ah are the Knights of Ah. These are a select few adepts of Ah that show exceptional loyalty to Wasabi and demonstrate a high level of aptitude within the school. It is the highest honor of any member of Ah to be chosen to be a Knight of Ah. Most Knights require decades of service to Ah to prove themselves worthy of the honor. Shichimi is the only Knight of Ah to receive this honor at such a young age.
### Known members:
- Sansevieria (founder)
- Wasabi (actual master)
- Shichimi (student witch)
- Shichimi (student witch and knight of Ah)
- Torreya (dragon rider)

The land of the setting moons is also the final resting place for many dragons of Hereva who came to this place seeking comfort and peace long before Ah built their temples. The dragons pay little heed to the Ah's practitioners and Ah leaves the dragons in peace. Ah has a beautiful ceremony for the passing of these great creatures, but few outsiders have witnessed it. The ceremony (as explained) calls the spirit of the dragon forth from the body and guides it soaring up to the heavens. The death of the dragon and the ceremony consumes the body of the dragon in a fiery vortex, leaving only the bones of the dragon in its place. Members of Ah use the bones to fashion their temples and fashion them into ornamental jewelry to wear in their hair. This creates a curious juxtaposition between the natural beauty of the area and the various draconic remains, both in the architecture and scattered throughout the land. Members of Ah feel that the bones of such magnificent beasts are a reminder of the body's imprisonment of the spirit, and reinforces the belief that the spirit should be separated from the body when death comes to consume the body.
The temples of Ah serve both as centers of worship and as the central nervous system for the school of Ah. The main temple combines schools for trainees and adepts, and also is the storehouse of much of the information that Ah gathers about other schools. Huge libraries of information exist within the temple walls with reports from the various wandering adepts of Ah. It is also here that Wasabi has her combination office and living quarters so she may be ever watchful and ever present over the vast information flow.

Ah uses robes to signify status inside the school. The system seems complex to outsiders but folks inside of Ah can instinctively tell what level someone is by the colors of their robes. Many visitors are given green robes which stand out among the red robes of Ah adepts. Only a few special guests may receive robes of other colors, signifying their honored status. It is considered rude for an outsider to wear the red colors inside of Ah's temples without taking the oaths of Ah.
Few outsiders have been inside of the temples of Ah. Visitors are given special green robes to wear while in the temple. It is rare to see anyone who has not taken the oaths of Ah to wear the traditional red robes and bone headpieces of Ah.
