Eder Gira is a volcanic scrap of land, dotted with steam vents and a very out-of-place waterfall. A number of awkward bone structures dot the landscape, and a series of inter-connected dark passageways run through the back ridge, behind the waterfall. Small, manta-ray-like creatures can be found swimming in the pond below the falls, and baskets arrayed around the caves in the rear of the Age indicate that at one time this Age may have featured fishing as a distraction from everyday life in the Cavern. In the distance, beyond the link in spot that modern day visitors find themselves taken too, there is a large forest with numerous birds that are able to be seen in the distance. In the middle of the forest are ruins. Whether these ruins belonged to the D'ni who visited the Age or the Age's inhabitants is currently unknown. A link to Gira's sister Age, Eder Kemo, can be found near the waterfalls.
Eder Gira is also one of the few Ages we've seen with a normal day/night cycle. As discovered by Tehl Nava and Gadren, a full day on Gira is 10 hours long.
Garden Ages such as Eder Gira were known to have been placed in D'ni Neighborhoods throughout the Cavern as a way to escape the pressures of everyday D'ni life and get a breath of fresh air. This Age was written during what the DRC has labeled a "Garden Binge" period around 8100 DE. The latest information from the DRC in this regard has definitively closed the debate on whether Gira and its sister Age, Eder Kemo, are Ages which date back to the time of King Shomat, who ruled in the early 300's.
The DRC has made very little impact on this Age visually, and records are very sparse as to their opinions on the Age or its general status. A strange Linking Stone - likely placed there by either Yeesha or one of the Least, connects this Age to the DRC research station atop the Tokotah Rooftop in D'ni, and the DRC have recently re-installed the Linking Book back to the Nexus, but beyond that, they seem to have no connection to this Age.
"When all is taken from one, the only hope that remains is what is given by another. Through this giving, both are redeemed." - Regettavok Oorpah; Book 2, Entry 1071, Item 54
