The Ixion House is an abandoned laboratory. It was formerly used to put criminals, critically ill, and mentally ill people in hyper-sleep.
The place was said to be invaded by a single child who was supposed to be put in hyper-sleep, according to legend. The child's mother was killed while in hyper-sleep because it was done incorrectly, and the child seemingly went insane, hence the attempted hyper-sleep. If they saw people they would sink into the shadows, it is said. The story is called The Legend of The Shadow Child.
The Ixion House was established in 1942 and was abandoned in 1953.
