The Third NoHead Base was the third base of operations for the NoHeads, and for most of them, the last. It was destroyed in 2013.
The Third NoHead Base was very spacious and had several floors and corridors. The library, despite being destroyed, would be visited by Annabeth several times.
The Third NoHead Base was built in 2005. It usually had a cloaking device so no one could find it.
First NoHead WarEdit
In August 2013, Paige, now nearing her ninth birthday, woke up in the middle of the night and chose to go on a walk. During this, she saw a group of NoHeads led by grandmaster Mr. Crooked NoHead rendezvousing at the entrance of the Third NoHead Base. Listening in, Paige figured enough to learn that Crooked was planning to blow up the police station with detonators. Paige thought she must report this to the police at once, but before she could successfully flee Mr. Crooked NoHead caught her. Mr. Crooked NoHead welcomed her into the room and, after a brief confrontation, attempted to kill her. Paige countered the subsequent death beam with a force field. Paige managed to flee the base, and rallied the message to the police. Paige rallied the police and convinced them to help her destroy the NoHead menace once and for all.
Turning off all nav beacons and signal lights, arming all of the older trainees, and sealing all blast doors, the NoHead base was prepared for a police attack. Four days later, Paige raided the NoHead base with the assistance of the police. Marching on the base steps, Paige slew the unsuspecting Gate Master Mr. Dire NoHead and began the brutal slaughter of every NoHead present. Mr. Crooked NoHead led a final stand of children in B-Wing but was unable to defend his charges from the superior number of bullets. Additionally, three NoHeads attempted to lead a counterattack, but were all defeated.
Although many NoHeads and employees died within the NoHead base that night, a retreat of a group of several NoHeads escaped, one of which was Mrs. Eradicating NoHead. Until her capture, she would live in madness having failed to save the NoHeads. Securing the building, Paige and the police prepared to root out any stragglers when Mr. Stupid NoHead intervened and slaughtered half the group in a flash. The others were forced to retreat.
After the PurgeEdit
After checking the names of the dead off against the Archives roster, the police officers dragged the bodies of the dead NoHeads out onto the public steps and heaped them on a make-shift pyre for all passersby to see. In the days following the Base’s occupation, a group of NoHeads gathered in the crowd outside the public entrance, though only one of five stepped forward. This lone NoHead attacked the troopers stationed on the steps, urging Brute Gunray and Mean King to join him, only to be cut down by a hail of gunfire. Gunray and Mean King chose to retreat.
