Iocane Island was originally located on the Hunter Ocean. A rock to the north is inscribed, "This island were fashioned by Hempline." The island received its name from iocane powder, a fictional poison mentioned in The Princess Bride. In reference to the star cluster Pleiades, Iocane is in the place of Celaeno.
