The so called Falcon Sanctum is a location in Defenders of Earth. It is the headquarters of the Bulgarian Vixens, the Bulgarian branch of the Eastern Vixens.


Despite being Bulgarian, the Sanctum is actually based on Bowood House, a former country house and current hotel, spa and golf resort based in Wiltshire in the United Kingdom.

It is a country house that is located in rural Bulgaria just as the typical country house was often found in the countryside.

Inside the house:

X20's house

The common type of house shown in the Cold War II series and a few other pieces of literature and the aforementioned house of X20.

The house differs seriously from a number of rural houses such as the direlict seaside house depicted in Stingray used by X20 owing to the fact that it is a country house. Boathouses like X20s are also common houses shown in other pieces of literature as are country houses as they are houses inhabited by British agents of the European Intelligence Network in the Cold War II series.

Outside the house is an enormous garden that can be linked to the typical English country garden of country houses that were prominent in the 17th, 18th and 19th as well as early 20th centuries and inside the house are all sorts of pictures that show that this is the headquarters and indeed home of the Bulgarian Vixens thanks to the huge assortment of paintings of vixens in the house.

But also present is a very strange picture as it depicts a vixen battling a Jellyfish which actually highlights the conflict between the Eastern Vixens and PHANTOM. Another painting shown is a lioness attacking a vixen which also highlights their animosity towards the Lionesses of Turkey first shown in Invaders and Wives when they are the first to discover Sarmeyzmal.

Other facilities include the standard country house facilities such as bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, etc.
