The Legend Begins
Fabled to have been built brick by brick from the foundation up by the then Grimm Patriarch, Baron Cecil Grimm, Castle Graylskull is a fortified multilayer structure established at the height of the family's monster hunting prestige. An aggrandized intelligentsia of sophisticated cultivation. Within its legendary halls the generational hunters have secretly amassed am unrivaled collection of exclusive antiquities and mysterious artifacts.
Diversity of nearly 60,000 plus esoteric pieces from the prehistoric era to the 16th century have earned this architectural masterpiece idiosyncratic and diacritical acclaim. Exhibiting never before seen paintings, sculptures, objects d'art, and archeological rarities found nowhere else in the World.
Artistic and noble portraits line the castle's Heritage Hall visually premiering the Grimm to Grayl lineage, as well as the shadowy inheritance of the underground brotherhood of nightmare slaying true bloods tasked with the eradication of London's monstrous horrors.
With this dangerous and potential fatal pursuit in mind, Castle Graylskull has continued to evolve through the generations. With each succession not only guarding the castle's vast resources, but advanced the ever expanding fortification with wards, objects and incantations as the realms of magic and men continue to bleed into one another.
One such example of this would be the castle's centerpiece, a monolithic column known as 'Pan's Piller.'
A innovative piece of hybrid ingenuity. Part clock part experimental radar, Pan's Piller is rumored to have the ability to track and locate supernatural phenomena.
Its entire brass and copper inner workings remain visible to the naked eye. Enormous electrical wires tail off from its bass beyond the castle walls to a place unknown to all but the brothers Grayl.
Decorative date plants line the front plaza adding a natural aura of floral decadence. However, like most aesthetic inside the castle, the floral arrangements hold a greater significance. Many having numerous medicinal purpose and counter agents to supernatural infections.
Undoubtedly however, thee, main feature of the House of Grayl is the massive copper and gold Titan. Mythical protector and the first Grimm to protect the realm. Fully adorned in his legendary armor, Lionsbain, the Titan acts as a gateway into the mote surrounding the castle. Further inside the main entrance, a large atrium with extensively restored statues and sculptures, premiere a certain pursuit of excellence and historical achievement.
The Titan's arms are fully animatronic and wield the majestic broadsword, the Arctic Fang. As the myth goes the blade was forged from sacred arctic metals of the North and fabricated into a ceremonial cutlas. But unshackled from the restraints of tradition, the Arctic Fang is the only Grimm family heirloom not to have been handed down from generation to generation. Yet it remains as sharp as the first day in which it saw battle, as deadly as the day it tasted its first drops of blood.
Baptized in the essence of their bloodline's creed, the brother Grayl have silently positioned themselves as an unseen corner stone of London's hushed war on the monster's that torment the night.
Though far removed from the glory of their predecessors, more exiles then aristocrats, the brother's radical faction never the less help ensure the world of man continues to rise and flourish in the face of the long night.Birthed of tradition as much as of myth and intrigue, the Grayls claim to be the grand decedents of the notorious Grimms.
A proclamation held in high esteem among the blood born bearers of the distinction. Like their ancestors, the Grayls are rebellious as it pertains to their views and relations towards the royal crown. Though they continue to secretly serve and protect the streets of London. Vigilantly fulfilling their hereditary obligation as stoic warriors and pure blooded extremist.
