The home of Jean de Carriole, Baron Balazs's doctor. It's considered a mansion, yet it's gardens are a complete mess. It has a tower that menaces the heavens, on the top floor of which is de Carroile's vast laboratory. The tower has very few windows, but there are antennas just sitting out in all directions like countless horns, with fragments dangling from them that could be either cords or netting. Among the equipment in his lab are a massive centrifuge, a maser-based stabilizer, and a tachyon injector.
