Where Does Helios Rise? Where Does He Set?

I'm wondering how an inhabitant of Hyperborea sees the cycle of day and night. Where does Helios rise? Where does he set? Hyperborea doesn't have east or west so how do sunrise and sunset work?

Re: Where Does Helios Rise? Where Does He Set?

It's up to you I guess, please someone corrects me if I'm wrong but I can't remember seeing any info about that.

In my case the Hyperborea is tilting and shifting, causing Helios to rise and set without logical pattern, strengthening the weirdness of setting.

Hyperborea does indeed have east and west. Wherever you are, if you face Mount Vhuumithadon, then Helios rises behind you to your right, and it sets behind you to your left. Of course it never rises far above the horizon, peaking at only about 25° in mid-summer.
