This prison was where Lord Asriel was kept when he was captured by Iofur Raknison in Svalbard. It sat atop a wide slope and was positioned on a crag. Unlike a conventional prison, it was spacious and personal, with several rooms. It was lit by naphtha lamps and had large glass windows. Asriel designed the prison and decided the location himself.
Parts of the prisonEdit
At the entrance to the house there was a courtyard. It was surrounded by a low wall with a gate. Beyond the courtyard there was the front door which had a bell. When Lyra Silvertongue and Roger Parslow visited the prison, the courtyard was under a thick layer of snow.
The hall was beyond the entrance to the prison, past an inner door. It was furnished with a coal fireplace with a stone grate, carpets, leather chairs and naphtha lighting.
The bathroom had a rail that heated towels, as well as a bathtub. It was lit by naphtha lamps.
The living room had large windows and overlooked the sea below. It contained a coal fireplace under a chimneypiece and several armchairs.
