With the rise of the consortium, all artistic places such as galleries and theatres were either shut down or forced to adhere by new rules set forth by the consortium.
Most, if not all, places now run by the consortium hate it, but if they resist then they would get shut down.
However! What better way to rebel against the consortium by hiding their biggest foes inside their walls and underneath them!
With the main point of access being the national gallery in Trafalgar square, the Toy Soldiers of London call the galleries and theatres in the immediate area of Trafalgar square home.
Deep in the forgotten vaults of these places of art and hope are the entrances to tunnels which lead under the city long forgotten by the consortium, and greatly hidden by curators and wardrobe mistresses alike!
Many soldiers adopt working positions in these places for security reasons.
The HQ provides soldiers who need it with a place to stay and food to eat, every soldier is however of course expected to bring some sort of income to the HQ and the other safe houses in which they stay.
Every soldier, old or young, knows the one main rule of safe houses and the HQ: The safety of one is not worth that of everyone else or the cause!
Therefore if any soldier is on the run and has the consortium hot on their trail the HQ will not open it's doors to them.
Entrances do not just include those within the galleries and theatres, many manholes lead to the HQ if you can find your way through the tunnels.
Cameras are posted everywhere, at every point of entry, and there is always a soldier or 2 watching the cameras. There are alarm systems fitted for if unauthorised personnel come too close to the hideout via the sewer tunnels.
Only certain higher up members of staff in the theatres and galleries, the ones who have access to the vaults, know of the presence of the Toy Soldiers, and the soldiers who work in the places of course.
A new soldier is only permitted to know the route through the sewers to the HQ after they have proved themselves trustworthy.
