Coryana is a mediterranean island ruled by Safiyah Sohail. It is also where the Desert Rose, a rare, mysterious universal panacea, is grown.

History

Safiyah Sohail became the ruler of Coryana and created one major rule, after she noted how people wasted natural resources, that the Desert Rose, a plant that grew naturally here, was not to be exported from the island. Eventually, Tatiana became Safiyah's second-in-command.

Around 2015, Safiyah discovered Beth Kane/Alice as she had newly escaped from the torturous lifestyle created by August Cartwright, bringing her to Coryana; Safiyah taught Beth to turn her anger into power, teaching her how to fight as well as other skills.[1] Beth met a young man named Ocean here.[2]

When Alice left the island, she took a flower from the Desert Rose with her, violating the rule and drawing Safiyah's anger.

By late 2020, Safiyah learned that employees of Hamilton Dynamics had mass-produced a vaccine based on the Desert Rose to a poison[1] that was spread by bats infected by Alice, just to gain Safiyah's attention. Safiyah sent Tatiana to retrieve Alice,[3] but Tatiana brought Sophie Moore here as well.

As Tatiana and Sophie waited, Safiyah and Alice talked about the past, but Alice was more interested in avenging the death of Kate Kane because Alice believed that Safiyah had killed her twin. After a brief scuffle, Safiyah told Alice that she had not killed Kate and showed Kate's unique necklace to Alice as proof that she knew the whereabouts of the woman. Meanwhile, Tatiana scuffled with Sophie because Sophie would not promise that Alice would be allowed to traverse Gotham City unfettered by law enforcement. Before being drugged and dismissed from Coryana with Sophie, Alice promised Safiyah that she would do a job for her in order to be reunited with Kate.

Safiyah told Alice that Kate would be returned to the island after Alice left.[1]
