The corresponding disambiguation page is Nightfall.
Lady Gisela's Nightfall facility was part of Keefe's Legacy and could only be opened by his blood (mostly mentioned in the book Nightfall). Lady Gisela chose to use blood instead of spit for the DNA test, because blood shows sacrifice and gives meaning to a place. Keefe's blood also works as a master key for all the locked doors in Nightfall. Nightfall was inspired by Vespera's own laboratory and this one is set at an unnamed location, however, the facility is noted to be in a mountain as per where the starstone takes the group. Lady Gisela used Starstones to go to the facility. It was guarded by three gorgordons (a creature Lady Gisela created), but 2 were later killed by the Neverseen when they used Keefe's blood to enter. The inside is solid stone with a glittering white floor. Doors have runes over them that list qualities such as "Courage" and "Ingenuity". Sophie notes they may have to do with the Criterion, a process where Keefe was asked by Fintan who he'd save when they went to the Forbidden Cities. Like the original Nightfall, the place was created for human experimentation.
The layout of Nightfall is not shown. However, it seems to be a multi-layered structure, as Lady Gisela states that Sophie's parents should be being held on the fourth floor, in the observation platform. Also according to her there was a floor for Soporidine. When they journeyed through it they spotted spaces where furniture might've been in the past. You need to know the trick to navigate, and opening a door could trigger alarms.
