Sanctuary network video conference

A video conference featuring a number of Sanctuary house heads

The Sanctuary Network is a network of safe havens for Abnormals. It was founded by Gregory Magnus and Helen Magnus in order to protect Abnormals and humans from each other.

A number of local branches, including Tokyo, New Delhi, Beijing, Moscow, as well as the headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, were attacked by enhanced Superabnormals on orders from the Cabal.


The Sanctuary Network is governed by the council of the house heads, with founder and Old City Sanctuary house head Helen Magnus as a kind of first among equals, officially referred to as "head of the global network". Important and immediate decisions are made by the Executive Committee. (Sanctuary)


A total of 12 Sanctuaries have been closed by Magnus. Only Cape Town, Dallas, Brisbane, and Tokyo Sanctuaries have been named as being closed, they were the latest to close.

Defense ForcesEdit

Though little of it has been seen, the Sanctuary network keeps their own paramilitary defense force, mostly made of humans but also consisting of abnormals. These soldiers guard the Sanctuarys in event of invasion, and have even been shown to be pulled together using militaristic tactics to coordinate assaults. While the number of soldiers have not been mentioned, they are quite well equipped with phasers, state of the art technology and even a small fleet of warships. (Sanctuary)
