Quill is the island where the book The Unwanteds takes place. It is very dry and desolate. Most of the vehicles are very old because Quill has blocked off communications with the other islands around making trade impossible, so they ran out of their natural materials. Every year they sort the 13 year-olds into Unwanteds, Necessaries, and Wanteds. Wanteds will go to the university while the Necessaries will work on farms and carry out every other undesirable task. Unwanteds will go to the Death Farm, later revealed as Artimé. Most Necessaries left Quill when Artimé was discovered, infuriating the Wanteds, but came back when Artimé lost its mage, Mr. Today, which meant Artimé was no more.
