Niwen is the region where most of Ori and the Will of the Wisps takes place.
Description[edit | edit source]
Kwolok describes Niwen as a "perilous place". In contrast to Nibel, Niwen lost the light of the Spirit Willow some time ago, and the inhabitants have not seen a Guardian Spirit like Ori in a long time. As a result of this, Niwen is suffering from the Decay.
