What property she does have is kept in the trunk of her car, which she keeps in a rented parking spot near-by.
Caius’s Cemetery Haunt
Caius keeps his haven in the basement of the caretaker’s house in the Riverview Cemetery in the south of his territory.

Isaac Kerr’s Haunted House
Isaac Kerr maintains a condemned home that is rumored to be haunted. In 1979 a grisly, famous, multiple murder took place in a largely industrial area of the Golden Valley area. Since then the case has not been solved, the house in which the murders took place did not sell, and the property has fallen into increasing disrepair. Kerr has lived in the basement of the house since it was condemned in 1989 – sometimes he has allowed himself to be seen from a distance, a shadowy, fleeting figure, keeping the rumor of haunting alive for each generation.
Micah, the Bishop of the Twin Cities, keeps a hidden suite of rooms connected to the catacombs under the Basilica of Saint Mary. Originally a series of rooms for equipment and storage for the crews digging the sewers, they were walled off when the sewers were completed and St. Mary’s was built. Micah discovered them, had a secret passage built from the catacombs to the Labyrinth, and had the rooms luxuriously appointed. This allows him to move from tunnels to Basilica, both accessible from his Haven.

It is near an exit stairway, allowing Nyah to come and go unobserved.

Tama Oshiro’s Hideout
Tama Oshiro sleeps and receives guests in a suite of hidden rooms in the basement of the Minnesota State Capitol building. These rooms were added during a series of renovations to the building in the early 1980’s – Tama used her mastery of Dominate to force the contractor to add the rooms, a hidden doorway into the Capitol, a passage outside, and access to the Labyrinth – and then used the same power to remove any memory of the hidden suite from the workers’ minds.
