A suburban college town situated in the foothills a là Beverly Hills, the only way to describe the picturesque town is with a montage of the American Dream. Kids play in the yard, and people walk their dogs and wave to their neighbors. Begrudgingly, however, much of Absalom City’s youth matriculate into Odessa University, a prestigious school that attracts people from all walks of life. Many of Bellinger’s residents often retreat to Dale for the winter to hit the slopes. For those who seek to burglarize the homes of this prestigious neighborhood, well...this is the seat of power for the Grinspoon ancestral home, and thus the shadow of that dubious protection falls on the entire town.
