This original mansion, whose foundations date back to the 1700's, that stands on Graymalkin Lane was constructed by a Dutch seafarer named Xavier. Since then the mansion and its grounds have always been in the Xavier Family, it used to be run by one Charles Xavier. Tragically, he died suddenly in a fight between himself, Jean Gray and Magneto. After his death, it was owned by Professor Ororo Munroe, who used the building as the Institute for Gifted Youngsters and as the head-quarters for the X-Men.
Xavier's Institute offers a curriculum of high-school, college and advanced degree courses in a variety of fields, just like any other Prep school. The way Xavier's Institute differs is in it's student body; all the children who attend here are mutants.
That was years ago. Now, enemies of the Brotherhood of Mutants and the X-Men alike have taken over. Graydon Creed, leader of a huge group of humans in a movement against all mutants called Friends of Humanity, has overrun the school. He is the current headmaster, and teaches the mutant students to fight. Not fight for their own kind, no. To fight against their own kind. To go out and destroy any living mutant they come across.
To sum this monstrosity up in a word? Ingenious. Think what you will about that word pertaining to Creed and his plan, but for what he's trying to do, it is the ultimate way to succeed. Get seemingly harmless kids brainwashed enough to do his bidding and no one will be none the wiser. It is a full-year school, meaning the students cannot go home to visit their families for the holidays. Creed doesn't want to run the risk of exposure to his plans.
The Institute's faculty and other occupants used to make up the X-Men. The X-Men is an organization of powerful mutants that were brought together by Professor Xavier for two purposes:
First, to train such mutants in the uses of their superhuman powers, and second, to serve as a combat team that could defend humanity against attacks by powerful mutants who use their powers for criminal ends, as well as against other threats.
The Xavier estate covers a considerable area from Graymalkin Lane to Breakstone Lake, which is also known as the Neversink Reservoir.
The grounds include Japanese Gardens, stables, a boathouse, a very low frequency antenna, a communications tower, and an Olympic-sized swimming pool at the rear of the mansion. On a distant section of the estate is the hanger and launching area for the X-Men's Blackbird VTOL jet, along with a light plane turntable and runway accessible from the mansion via an underground electromagnetic railway.
The dimensions of the property are approximately 2 miles north-south (lake to road), and 5 miles east-west. The estate's grounds are honey-combed with tunnels and underground passageways of extreme age. Caution is advised, because of the advanced technology - not to mention the safety of the residents and students - security at the mansion is a high priority.
Graydon Creed has no knowledge of the underground tunnels, but he does know about the hanger. The VTOL jet is still there, but there is always someone down there keeping watch because of the constant fear of some of the students escaping to seek out help.Graydon Creed
, newfound human owner of Xavier's School for Gifted youngsters has made a statement to those now attending. The message is as follows:: "I'm not going to mince words, or beat around the bush. I called you in here because I'm doing something that hasn't been done in what I believe is far too long. I, students, am making a team of X-Men. I have called you here because you are the candidates I've selected. However, as it stands you are far too large to be an operational squad, so there will be...tryouts. Today, the Friends of Humanity will be executing a mutant-but it has nothing to do with her mutation. The woman is the daughter of two Irish extremists-one of whom was killed by the authorities. She not only helped them in the creation, but also the plantings of several explosives that led to the deaths of multiple innocent Irish nationals. She is a criminal, and deserves retribution. The local government here has requested a bit of help from me, to make sure things go over smoothly. This is a chance for me to help you remind humanity that not all mutants are evil or uncontrollable. I'm not an unreasonable man, however, and so I will ask you rather than tell you."
The man trailed off, hitting a button beneath his desk as he stood. Behind him, one of the wooden panels of the wall slid open to reveal a collection of old X-Men uniforms.
"Are you game? If so, talk to my assistant outside. He'll get you suited up and on the jet to the rally. I know you may have your...tribulations, but now is not the time to get squeamish. The dangerous ones have to be controlled or, God forbid, killed to prove that you aren't all bad. I need you all with me here." Creed finished, feigning a moment of vulnerability. He channeled the disgust he felt for the creatures in his presence into a rather convincing facade.Friends of Humanity
A group of human extremists who believe all mutants should die. They currently run the school and Graydon Creed is in charge of them. They have a secret: Project Wideawake. This project is made up of human scientists and military officials who made hundreds of giant, mutant-killing robots. These robots are specifically designed to track and kill all mutants. Their weapons are adapting, which means they literally learn from the mutant that is attacking them and are well-equipped to counter the attack and destroy the mutant. The Brotherhood
A gang of mutants who are bent on ridding of the world of it's 'human problem', as it were. The late leader, Magneto, had a grudge against the X-men for reasons unknown. The Brotherhood was made up of: Magneto, Mystique, Juggernaut, Sabretooth, and Pyro. Of course, they are always recruiting new members, especially now since nearly every single one of the original members has died from either murder by Project Wideawake or old age. It is in desperate need of a leader; for now, it's just a gang of mutant extremists.The Students
Children of all ages who have been cast out by society because of their unique abilities. Whether they showed up on their own, with nowhere else to go, or they were dropped off by loving, adoring parents who support their every move, these kids have all arrived at Xavier's Institute. The catch? Xavier's Institute is no longer what it used to be. Thanks to Graydon Creed, it has become a brainwashing facility to teach the new students to destroy their fellow mutants. The up-side? There is a rumor going around between the students that know something isn't right. The rumor is that there's a rebel alliance forming to try and escape to seek help. Either it's from the Brotherhood, or the older X-Men that have long since been in hiding, no one knows.The X-Men
Many of the original X-Men have passed on. There are but a few left, and those living went into hiding. The ones that are still alive are: Storm and Colossal. These characters are hiding so well, it's nearly impossible to find them.The Brotherhood, The X-Men, The Friends of Humanity, The Students
will all play a part in molding the world. This is just the beginning.
