The Vortis' Holding Center is a slave holding center and, as the name suggests, it is run by Vortis[1] in New California in 2241.



The holding center's primary building is in two parts. The first, largest part is where the counter, Vortis and a large number of slavers can be found. It is fairly likely that this is where the slaves are handed over to Vortis for 'safe keeping', for a fee of course. The second room has two large double beds and a few lockers. Therefore, it is probable that this is where at least some of the slavers sleep as well as work.

The holding pens themselves are split into four blocks each with four cells, totaling sixteen cells. This area is constantly guarded by one slaver who will attack those who stray into this area. There is also a small outhouse here eith nothing more than a small water-closet.

The whole area is enclosed by a chain-link fence, for extra security.
