The Stroud Estate[1] is the ancestral home of the Stroud family. It eventually came into the possession of Anya Stroud and her husband, Marcus Fenix.

History[]

Before 108 B.E., the estate was an active winery, but it stopped producing wine at some point before E-Day. The estate survived the Locust War mostly unscathed and was where Anya Stroud and Marcus Fenix settled down in the post-war era. James Dominic Fenix and Delmont Walker spent their childhoods at the estate before being sent to boarding school and later joining the Coalition of Ordered Governments. At some point before 42 A.E., Anya died and was buried on the estate's ground. Marcus attempted to maintain and repair the estate, but only completed some of the necessary tasks such as fortifying the barrel shed roof, adding a security system and planting a crop of tomatoes.

In 42 A.E., JD and Del returned to the Stroud Estate accompanied by Kait Diaz, seeking Marcus's help after their fellow Outsiders were kidnapped. They were followed by an army of DeeBees under First Minister Mina Jinn's control who proceeded to attack. This combined with a series of untimely Windflares ultimately led to the destruction of most of the estate including the mansion and several outlying buildings. However, everyone was able to escape using Track Mules Marcus had stored in a barn on the property.

While meeting with Jinn in New Ephyra, Marcus commented that he wanted to get the meeting over with so that he could return home and rebuild the estate. Although Jinn didn't rise to the comment, Kait noticed a look of genuine regret on her features, indicting that Jinn felt genuine remorse for destroying the Stroud Estate. When JD's story got to the part about the attack on the estate and how Jinn's escalation destroyed it, Jinn immediately began trying to apologize. Although Marcus was uninterested, Jinn insistently continued on and stated that she deeply regretted what had gone down as she had never intended for events to unfold as they did. Marcus bit back any response he had to Jinn's apology and simply had JD continue on with his story.[2]
