Unlocked Description[edit | edit source]
Lord Cassius Sencen's beachfront mansion was originally a property that he kept private and used as a place to escape to whenever he wanted space from his family. But since his wife's involvement with the Neverseen was discovered, the Shores of Solace has become his primary residence (though he does still retain a somewhat secret apartment in Atlantis.) The estate is a tranquil single level beach home with a mother of pearl walls and the vine draped arches, sunny patios, and stately decorated in soothing tones of gray and blue. Keefe Sencen lives there for the moment - not by choice - and he spends the majority of his time on the patio lined with cushioned swings, watching waves crash onto a black sand cove.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
“But the house was beautiful. A single, sprawling level with mother-of-pearl walls and massive windows overlooking the turquoise ocean. The scattered rooms were connected by vine-wrapped arches and broken up with sun-baked inner courtyards. Everything was bright and airy. Elegant, but comfortable. Decorated in dove grays and soothing shades of blue.”
Cassius's Office[edit | edit source]
“Lord Cassius's office was every bit as immaculate and elegant as Sophie had come to expect from the rooms in the Shores of Solace.”
“With its wide ocean-view windows and beach-toned décor. The massive silver desk didn't have a single fingerprint dulling its shine. And the mother-of-pearl were filled with books of the exact same size and width, with the same seafoam blue spines as if he'd had them all rebound to match - or bought hundreds of the same volume purely for it aesthetic. The stiff white armchairs filling the center of the room looked as if they'd never been once been sat on, and the marble floor was so heavily polished, it felt slippery.”
“But one corner was different. Nestled near a small, flickering, fireplace was a dark blue recliner that was so worn and well loved. Next to it was a small table strewn with scrolls and notebooks and a window with a perfect view of a hidden cove filled with dark rocks, beach grass, and a stretch of smooth white sand.”
