The Castle of Amber Occasionally called the Red Keep, sarcastically, it still resembles the paintings of it that were made two thousand years ago.

The ghosts had suddenly abandoned the third tunnel in the basement. There had been a horrible slaughter some five hundred years ago, which had claimed King Mal. The third tunnel was therefore warded and glyphed like few other halls or doors in the Keep. The man looked at his cousin, who could have passed for a young Fiona, and shrugged slightly. "I don't sense any of the ghosts," she said, "and as a medium, that concerns me…hey, what's that? I don't like it. That looks like…Werewindle."

The Red Keep doesn't always refer to the hair color of its rulers. It also refers to the amount of blood that was spilled there, in multiple attacks, going back over a thousand years, and including a costly and bloody civil war which claimed the lives of Queen Shani and heralded the start of the tyrannical reign of Mal the Second. After Mal's eventual reunion with those he murdered, including Rebecca and his cousins Adan and Alder, three more children of the House Brand ruled in Amber, until the death of the last King, Sherlocke the III. After his death, there was a twelve year Interregnum, and then the first Council was formed. Fiona's daughter Astrid, the Undead Lady of Greenwood led that Council with the caveat that she would do so for no longer than 100 years. She went over by a bit, but stepped down.

Lady Elspeth, daughter of Bleys, currently rules Amber as Protector, as nominated by the Council.

She is served by The Council, which is headed by Arianne.


Arianne, great-granddaughter of Fiona is probably the most politically adept, and usually gets her way.
