The Facility is located 22 floors beneath the Kremlin. It is a secret base of operations accessed by only those with highest levels of security clearance granted by the Ascendancy. There are two access points to the Facility, but only one is actually used. It can be entered from within an unmarked elevator system from within the Kremlin Arsenal Building. Then there is a single emergency exit point tunnel that leads to the surface more than two miles away. This exit is meant to be one-direction only. The Facility operates with a full staff and can contain up to 50 test subjects. Of the short list of people with access to the Facility, only a handful are aware of the emergency exit.
Accessible to all with Facility Clearance
Originally it was a transformed nuclear bunker decommissioned after the Cold War. This area of the facility is certainly the oldest. Nuclear symbols and the Russian alphabet are still painted on the walls. The sleeping quarters for long-term residents of the Facility are located in the bunker area. There is also an open-area training area primarily used by the Rods of Dominion to practice channeling, an on site gym, and food preparation access.
Restricted access area within the Facility
The cells are made of the highest security and are capable of containing a channeler when they are properly sedated. This area is newly constructed, retrofitted from portions of the original fallout shelter bunker.
Restricted only to scientific and medical staff
They were originally charged with investigating the cause of the Sickness, but as that is not known to be the onset of a channeler’s tapping of the Power, they are working to understand channelers at a genetic and molecular level. Dr. Weston is the lead scientific researcher and has full laboratory authority.
Dr. Zayed has a quantum physics laboratory adjacent to the biological/medical laboratories. All new subjects undergo a series of biometric scans, genetic tests, and cellular testing in this area.
This area is the newest construction.
