Havenfield is the Ruewen home and a place to rehabilitate animals before they go to the sanctuary. Grady, Edaline, and Sophie live there and care for the animals alongside the gnomes that reside there (known gnomes include Calla, now in Panakes tree form, and Flori, Calla's niece). It is off the coast of California, according to the map in Unlocked.
Jolie Ruewen was a former resident before she died from a fire set by Brant at Brant's house. Havenfield overlooks the ocean sitting atop some cliffs. On the property, there is a set of caves that Sophie liked to study in with Dex (until she was abducted from there in Keeper of the Lost Cities). After she was abducted Grady and Edaline installed a gate and fence over the cliff. The first floor has a kitchen and a large entryway. The second floor has Grady and Edaline's room and offices, as well as Jolie's old room. Sophie's room takes up the third floor. Calla's Panakes tree is also in Havenfield. Another permanent resident is Verdi, a fluffy Tyrannosaurus rex.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
“The house was taller than it was wide, with golden columns breaking up the etched glass walls, and a glittering cupola rose from the center of the roof.”
—Narration, in Keeper of the Lost Cities
“Havenfield was one of the rehabilitation centers for the Sanctuary, so there was always an abundance of bizarre animals milling about the lush pastures that stretched all the way to the steep ocean cliffs bordering the property.”
—Narration, in Legacy
Elvin Residents[edit | edit source]
Grady Ruewen - Grady was formerly an Emissary for the council. He is a mesmer and the husband of Edaline. He is the father of Jolie and adoptive father of Sophie. He is protective of Sophie, going as far as giving her the "boy talk" and keeping her away from Keefe, whom he thinks is a bad role model (he has also resorted to calling Keefe ¨That Boy¨).
Jolie Lucine Ruewen (formerly) - Jolie was a conjurer. She was the adoptive older sister of Sophie and eldest daughter of Grady and Edaline. She was said to look a lot like Sophie. Her fiancé, Brant, set a fire that eventually killed her, which shattered the lives of Grady and Edaline.
Non-Elvin Residents[edit | edit source]
Verdi - Verdi is a Tyrannosaurus rex who refuses to become a vegetarian, and therefore cannot be moved from Havenfield to the Sanctuary. Because of this, she is a called a ”permanent resident” by Grady.
Verminion - The Verminion (it is inferred that only one is currently residing at Havenfield) is a big purple hamster thing (a.k.a hamsterzilla) who lives at Havenfield and seems to hate Sophie. Later it was mentioned that new verminions that tunneled out of their pens.
Argentavis - An Argentavis was seen to be at Havenfield in Nightfall.
Silveny - Silveny is an Alicorn that was found by Sophie in Exile. She stayed at Havenfield until she was transferred to the Sanctuary at the end of Exile. Then, she was released into the wild so that it would be harder for the Neverseen to find her and Greyfell.
Stegosaurus - It was mentioned in Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, that a Stegosaurus residing at Havenfield had been stung by a manticore. It is not known if these creatures have been moved to The Sanctuary.
Gorgodon- The remaining guards to be given a chance to be re-taught at Havenfield.
Gnomes - Various gnomes live and help out at Havenfield.
Calla- Calla was a gnome who was a good friend to Sophie. However, after her sacrifice, she became a Panakes tree and resides at Havenfield on a hill overlooking the pastures as such.
Rooms[edit | edit source]
The Kitchen- The Kitchen is like a normal kitchen, but it has no cabinets or drawers anywhere. Edaline often bakes mallowmelt and other treats in here. For years Edaline had baked custard bursts here, though only once a year.
Sophie's Bedroom- Sophie's room has star-shaped crystals dangling from the ceiling on glittery cords, and blue and purple flowers weaved through the carpet, filling the room with their sweet scent. A giant canopy bed occupies the center of the room, and a huge closet and dressing area takes up an entire wall. Bookshelves full of thick, brightly colored volumes fill the other walls. It also has a bathroom complete with a waterfall shower and bathtub the size of a swimming pool. She is visited by Fitz and Keefe in her room multiple times throughout the book series and has been left notes from the Black Swan there. In Flashback, it is revealed to be formerly Havenfield's reception hall. Sandor often checks the carpet for footprints to make sure no one has been in her bedroom. In Keeper of the Lost Cities, it is one of the first things Sophie notices when she first sees her room. In Lodestar, Keefe accidentally leaves footprints on the carpet while delivering a bead for her necklace. The room takes up an entire floor, as stated in Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities.
Jolie's Bedroom- Jolie's bedroom is a room on the second floor, across the hall from Grady's office that was kept as a preservation of the past until the third book. Lacy curtains block most of the sunlight, and there is no proper lighting to make a garden here either. Crystal chandeliers also fill the room, ridden with dust (another lighting feature). A group of objects reflecting on Jolie's youth lay here, including stuffed unicorns, prattles pins on lanyards, dolls, and books. Two notable photos reside here as well, one depicting Jolie and the other showing Edaline, Grady, and Jolie before disaster turned their lives array. It has been planned to use it as a garden of some form since Everblaze. It is also the hiding place for Jolie's purple notebook, which helps Sophie figure out Brant is part of the Neverseen.
Grady and Edaline's Bedroom- Grady and Edaline's Bedroom was not seen much in the series until Nightfall, where you see that this room has a tool to manipulate shadows. The bed can be seen from the door.
Edaline's Office- Edaline's office, otherwise known as the "Place Where Things Go To Die" is a room on the second floor littered with untouched stuff. There are many random trunks, folded linens, unopened presents, and many objects that remain unidentifiable. There are bookshelves, that appear to have been untouched for a while, and consist of thick dusty volumes that would obviously show if disturbed. In Everblaze, Sophie is given the punishment of cleaning out the office.
Grady's Office- Grady's Office, as seen in the Keeper of the Lost Cities, is a room deprived of anything personal with empty spaces instead of knick-knacks or photos. Tightly rolled scrolls are stuffed in bins and history books, haphazardly, are jammed on shelves. A massive mountain of paperwork lays on his desk.
