Theodore Roosevelt Island

The Aspect: In over your head
The Face: Annabelle North

This Island in the middle of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. is 88.5-acres and is designated a national memorial. It is reached by a footpath from the Arlington side of the river, and features extensive forested land with a number of footpaths and large monument complete with a 17 foot statue of the former president, four large monoliths that feature some of his most famous quotes, and a circular fountain. Prior to being bought and dedicated to the public by the Theodore Roosevelt Association in memory of the 26th U.S. president, the island had gone by many names.

It was first known as Anacostine Island and then Analostan Island after the natives who first dwelt on it and revered it as a sacred location. After the natives had been driven out or died off, the Island was bought by George Mason III who built a plantation and a manor house on it under the advice of a mysterious friend. When the bank of Columbia collapsed the Mason was forced to abandon his unfinished mansion and consolidate his assets, leaving the island in the hands of his mysterious friend. The manor house was used as a hospital during the Civil War, after which it acquired a reputation for being haunted. Later the mansion mysteriously burned down in 1907.

The island, reputed to be a place of mystical powers and strange occurrences, has been disputed by many supernatural factions who wish to have access to its power, from the Faerie Courts, to mortal enchanters. Once it was made into a monument back in 1932 Keeper Phaeton tried to claim the island as part of his protectorate, but the Summer Court claimed it belonged to them. Recently the Summer Court has allowed a coven of young, overenthusiastic neo-pagan witches, calling themselves the Priestesses of Avalon to take control of the island despite the ties that some of members of this group have to Phaeton. The leader of the coven is Annabelle North, who claims to be a direct descendent of the mystic who originally instructed the Masons to build a mansion here.
