Located on the northern coast of the small Bravian town of Paz, sat a cottage backed up a wooded area of both. It was made of dark wood with an a frame at the front center of the house. The roof was covered with a greyish thatch which kept the water from leaking into the rooms inside, at least for the most part. The building was not particularly new, but the inhabitants were. The Grimm siblings, Oriana and Zephyr, had made this place their home in early 1662. They were not native to these parts having grown up in the Kingdom of Arassa much like their cousins in the Blackwood family.
