This is what Velaris is known for: the artists' quarter. You'll find a hundred galleries, supply stores, potters' compounds, sculpture gardens and anything in between. They call it the Rainbow of Velaris.

Rhysand, A Court of Mist and Fury

The Rainbow of Velaris is situated in the Night Court in Velaris. It is the central hub for different kinds of art. It contains the most famous theater in the city.


Feyre asks Rhysand if she is able to accompany him on his errands in the Night Court. He hesitates but ultimately grants her access to to see Velaris (the City of Starlight). While exploring Velaris, Rhysand and Feyre visit the Rainbow of Velaris. Rhys knew of Feyre interest into painting and hoped that she would like the Rainbow.

Feyre attempts to walk through the artist's quarter the day before she goes with Rhysand, Cassian, Mor and Azriel to the Court of Nightmares to steal the Veritas. However, she is unable to summon the courage to do it and walks away.

During the attack of Velaris, it is one of the areas left unprotected as Cassian, Azriel and Amren had their hands full defending other parts of the city and was described to be burning and bathed in blood as the Attor led an army of Hybern warriors into the Rainbow. Feyre suspects the Mortal Queens had told him to strike the Rainbow as it was the heart of the city and the most defenceless. When she hears a female scream in the artists' quarter, Feyre takes it upon herself to defend the Rainbow. In the aftermath of the attack, Feyre sees Rhys who names her 'Defender of the Rainbow'.
