Centre Intel: Location Data
Charleston, South Carolina
Located in Charleston, South Carolina, this is a Centre safe house, and used to house those people whom Centre operative have kidnapped or are protecting. Timmy (aka Angelo) was brought to Angel Manor as a child before he was transported to The Centre. Likewise, Davy Simpkins, was brought to Angel Manor in 1998 as a precursor to his induction (against his will) into the Pretender Project by Mr. Raines and Dr. DeWitt. As far as we know, Jarod was never taken here as a child.
Delphi Shores, New Jersey
Locate in Delphi Shores, New Jersey, this is a Centre safe house which was often frequented by Kyle. He said he felt "safe" there, and often did detailed drawings of the place in his blue notebooks...
In 1997, after he'd relocated and kidnapped Harriet Tashman, Kyle took Tashman to The Dragon House and tried to force her to tell him where his parents were. Tashman was eventually rescued from Kyle and The Dragon House by Jarod.
Hillman Marine a riverfront Centre owned warehouse facility on Connecticut, this is the "dumping ground" for all of the Centre's mainframe computers around the country. According to Broots: "Every Friday night at 11:59 PM all the Centre mainframes from all across the country do this mass back-up into this giant system [at Hillman] through their Blue Boxes..." In March of 1998, Mr. Lyle tried to decrypt a stolen blue-box computer chip at Hillman Marine. He was intercepted by Miss Parker and shot, but escaped nonetheless.
LaGrange Air Strip
La Grange Air Strip is a secret, unmarked airfield in Virginia (3 hours from Washington, D.C.) owned and maintained by The Centre. In October of 1996, Jarod flew a Draccon Jet to this air strip in the middle of the night, so he could get over to Washington, D.C. and break into the files of the Special Projects Office of the U.S. Air Force.
NuGenesis is a fertility clinic in Atlanta, Georgia, that prides itself on being on the cutting edge of reproductive science. In the 50's and 60's, however, it was also an adoption agency headed by the Haring brothers, Nicholas and Boris. "Weird things" started happening at NuGenesis when it teamed up with The Centre on the PRODIGY experiments. Dr. Boris Haring was the one over-seeing NuGenesis's part of the project until he died.
After his death, the child kidnappings and experiments ceased for a while, then started up again several years later.. when Boris's daughter, Dr. DeWitt, resumed the connection with The Centre and started working with Mr. Raines on re-establishing PRODIGY. Dr. Nicholas Haring is still living, and oversees NuGenesis's artificial insemination wing.
Jarod, under the pseudonym Jarod Spock, worked at NuGenesis for a very short period of time while he searched for clues about his past and about Dr. DeWitt's activities.
Stone Mountain, Georgia
Located in Stone Mountain, Georgia, this was the place where Margaret and Charles stayed during the six month (+/-) period of time in the late 1950's when they were going through fertility treatments at NuGenesis. Jarod found out about the Lodge in 1998, when the telephone number of the Lodge was given to him by the janitor at NuGenesis. It's currently being run by Lewis, the caretaker, who "grew old, never up" at the Lodge, and whose parents knew Margaret and Charles.
St. Catherine's Children's Centre
Now, the St. Catherine's in Massachusetts should not be confused with Lake Catherine (where Ben Miller's bed and breakfast is) or with the St. Catherine's Children Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The children's center was one Jarod visited during his first Christmas outside of The Centre. It's an orphanage run by Catholic nuns. Jarod volunteered at the center, read stories to the children, and eventually donated a large Christmas tree and presents for all of the displaced kids there. This was where he also learned about Santa Claus and "The Night Before Christmas" poem.
St. Catherine of the Hills
Hillshire Meadows, Massachusetts
This half-monastary half-nunnary was where Catherine Jameson-Parker and Harriet Tashman studied to become nuns. Catherine didn't go through with her vows, and instead married Mr. Parker. Harriet did become a nun, but gave up her commission when she realized she didn't really have the calling for it.
The Centre, knowing about Catherine Jameson-Parker's close ties to the facility, kept a wire-tap on the phone lines at St. Catherine's for over 30 years (and it's probably still active). In 1997, when Kyle escaped from prison, Harriet returned to St. Catherine's -- either to seek refuge or to contact her associates there (or both), we're not sure -- and Kyle (dressed as a monk) found and kidnapped her from there. Jarod also arrived at the place just moments before Harriet was kidnapped, and attempted without success to stop Kyle.
It may be possible that Jarod's mom, dad, and sister Emily are cloistered away in St. Catherine's, or that others (whom we haven't met yet) are working out of St. Catherine's for Jarod's benefit.
When Harriet was able to set up a meeting between Jarod and his family in Boston, it's assumed that she went to St. Catherine's to do it. Mr. Parker told his superiors that he had found about Jarod's Boston rendezvous via the phone tap The Centre kept on St. Catherine's.
The Centre seems to be run by warring factions. [Mr. Parker and Mr. Raines were definitely from a different faction than Mr.Lyle, for example.] And sometimes it's hard to tell who's actually in charge. There is a "Director", a female, who works out of The Tower... but there is also a board of Centre members who refer to themselves as "The Tower"... and a three-person group called The Triumvirate, who we have yet to be identified, but who seem to oversee The Tower and the Director not to mention whoever is in charge at the Centre at the time. There are also Directors of the various satellite offices... With all these "chiefs", the "indians" have trouble knowing from whom they're supposed to be taking orders.
