Today, the city is governed by Countess Arriana Valga. Her husband the Count Charus Valga was killed in the skirmish against the Nords. Cauntess Arriana Valga is also the mother of Alessia Caro, Countess of Leyawiin.

There are five districts of Chorrol: Fountain Gate, Castle Chorrol, Chapel of Stendarr, Great Oak Place, and West Chorrol.

The statue represents St. Osla, the Second Era healer, who was ministering the fallen of the Sack of Sancre Tor; a great memorial for anyone who died during the battle.
