The Castle
the centre of royal life
The castle sits at the centre of sprawling grounds containing gardens, training arenas, barracks, the royal stables and Lake Lilith, which is fed by the River Twinge. The royal guards which are stationed at various points around the territory will occasionally check fairiesí identities but are usually happy to let visitors wander around, unless the king orders otherwise. Within the castle itself, the west wing is the personal residence of the royal family, the east wing is the home of the court and the servantsí quarters on the lower levels. The castle is practically impregnable and is well-guarded against attack.

"You did good, kid," Flynn grinned, patting Dylan on the back as he walked past. When had his kid brother grown so tall? Honestly, with these kids, you blinked and you missed it. Dylan would be giving Henry a run for his money soon. The other trainees filed past, each one looking tired and sweaty but generally pleased. They were getting there. Admittedly, some of them were closer to there than others, but Flynn had seen worse. A lot, lot worse.
"You think so?" Dylan asked having retrieved his towel from Lunarian, "I thought I messed up in the middle." Flynn shook his head.
"I didn't notice anything," he reassured him, "so if you did, it can't have been very much." Dylan looked at him doubtfully.
"Hey," Flynn laughed, holding up his hands, "I was watching closely, okay? I promise."

Nodding, apparently satisfied, Dylan fell into step beside him as they headed back towards the castle. They'd gone only a little way before Dylan started stretching his shoulders...or his arms? Arms were definitely involved somehow, but Flynn had no idea what exactly his brother was up to. Where had the athleticism come from anyway? Flynn was fit enough but out of necessity, not choice. He'd never been much of an exercise person, and neither had anyone else related to them he'd ever met. Dylan was an enigma.
"Man," Dylan said beside him, apparently intent on proving the point, "I could really do with a swim right now."
"Oh sure," Flynn replied, shaking his head, "when I've been running around all morning and my arms and legs are about to drop off I think, you know what I need? more exercise!"

"Urm...Flynn," Dylan stopped walking and pointed off towards the garden gate. Flynn turned, following his finger and frowned. Buddy was thundering his way across the lawn towards them looking...troubled? alarmed? concerned? These were not expressions Flynn usually with Buddy and his own expression steadily settled to match.
"What's up, Bud?" Dylan asked as the aja skidded to a halt before them, saving Flynn the trouble.
"Is Cal okay?" he asked instead, looking around Buddy to see if Cal was following him through the gate. When her grinning face didn't materialise Flynn's frown grew more severe. "My day is about to get at least 50% worse, isn't it?"
