Carala 9 is a smoke shop in the Carala District, on the surface(which can hinder business on hot days and in sandstorms). Hethem runs Carala 9 and is addicted to Kanem aswell. He runs the shop just to be able to provide himself with a constant supply of buds. He smokes so much, he has developed a severe cough and many customers think he will die soon. He runs a fair business, which is rare. His prices are meant to encourage repeat visits and his selection is unheard of in the city. If it were in a more popular and cleaner part of Hou’Caw, it would be packed. The clientele usually consists of people whom are very quiet and like to be left alone to their smoke, in many cases addicts.
