After the shoot-to-kill policy on theris was discontinued, the government created a place to house theris - ironically named Sanctuary - at the base of the Rocky Mountains in 2024. Initially all theris were housed within the 5 mile square enclosure with no thought to separating the ferals from the tame. When Bastet arrives in Sanctuary in 2028, and inadvertantly kills Amanda Lucien she vows to create a safe space for theris who still retain their human mind. With the help of Lyonesse they comandeer one of the abandoned houses and create a Pack with Bastet as their alpha and Lyonessse as their beta.
