After one Thanksgiving, Randolph's siblings and their children never visited the mansion again for eleven years.
Magnus sneaks in to the family mansion to find answers as to why he is in danger and learns the truth from Randolph. Magnus could easily understand why his mother had never liked living there, and why she had become a fan of the great outdoors. According to him, the mansion was dark, oppressive and creepy.
After Ragnarok is delayed once again and Loki is reimprisoned, Magnus converts the mansion into a homeless shelter called the Chase Space, a shelter for homeless youths, with him and Alex as the owners. Blitzen and Hearthstone served as cooks, tailors, and life advisors for the kids who first arrived on the Fourth of July.

The mansion is a massive six-story brownstone with gargoyles on the corners of the roof, stained-glass transom windows, and marble front steps.
First Floor/Ground Floor
The first floor contains the entrance foyer and the kitchen.
The second floor contains Randolph's study. Magnus describes it as a mausoleum of mahogany furniture, oriental rugs, oil paintings, marble-tiled floors and crystal chandeliers. Along one wall is a lit glass case full of Randolph’s rusty Viking helmets and corroded axe blades. The library smells of lemon polish and leather. In one corner of Randolph’s office sat a big slab of rock like a tombstone, the front chiselled and painted with elaborate red swirly designs. In the center is a crude drawing of a snarling beast – maybe a lion or a wolf. Instead, spread across the desk were pieces of parchment as thin and yellow as onion skin. Faint sketches of a coastline, various points labelled in runes. Sitting on top of them, like a paperweight, was a leather pouch filled with rune stones.
The Third floor contains two bedrooms.
The fourth floor contains two more bedrooms.
The Uppermost floor. The Fifth floor contains a large library with a small kitchenette with a mini fridge and tea pot.
The roof contains a barbecue grill, planters and lounge chairs overlooking Back Bay.
- The location of the Leif Erikson statue is not at a place where you could easily view it from the estimated location of the mansion on Public Alley 429.
