Known as the ‘place beyond the sea’ to the inhabitants of Komorrah, Maroux sits several miles away from the docks of Sturgeon Bay, and couldn’t be more different than the city-life of Komorrah. Rustic buildings litter the streets that are illuminated with bright, colorful lights. The street-life of Maroux is lively, if not notably jolly and more vibrant than the dull-grey city-life. Filled with the jazzy tunes of street players or the delicious smells of grilled-seafood from nearby stands, Maroux knows it's different and doesn’t try to hide it. Cypress trees and other unique greenery line the streets as does the frequent clopping of horse hooves, due to the popular horse carriage industry in Maroux.
Bright, weird dolls, faces, and decorations pop out from curiosity shops lining the strips, advertising spells and magic for sale. This alludes to something the average visitor might not know about Maroux, and this is that the majority of its residents are superstitious and follow a religion similar to witchcraft and shamanism. Idols, charms, and dolls hang from sign posts, porches, trees, and other objects around these residents’ properties. It is said that these charms make the magic in the area stronger...
Predominantly a hardwood swamp, Maroux is dominated by Atlantic White Cedar and Magnolia trees, though some species of cypress trees are found in some parts. Sweet Pepperbush, Pink Tickseed, Parker's Pipewort, cattails and other common reeds populate the lowland brush. Patches of Water Lilies frequent the ponds as well.
