Stillwater is based mostly on the concept of a modern Native American village. It is more idealistic than other locations Cutler has created as a result.
Stillwater sits upon the ancestral homeland of Ashtree's father's tribe. The village is the result of slowly purchasing the land by tribe members; one by one the houses and businesses have been reclaimed, all but one. It now functions in much the same fashion as some reservations.
- Stillwater's name is a play on the phrase "still waters run deep".
- The concept of purchasing native land comes from the book Stone Fox.
