A boarding school located in the outskirts of some unnamed town for troubled rich teenagers, usually sent there by their parents either because no other boarding school will take them, or as a last resort before sending them to boot camp. It is also where the ancient ruling coven of vampires known as the Elders send the five young vampires as part of the Mansbridge Experiment, named after the school, in hopes of training them to control their bloodthirsty nature, and learn to co-exist peaceably among humans. It is because it is a boarding school for human students that the Elders choose it despite the risk of the presence of humans, in order to throw the Fury off their track. It is also because Dr. Reginald Murdoch is in charge, whom the Elders for whatever reason trust completely.
