"I have seen this word carved into the walls of a castle in Gloucestershire, England, in 1853."
Elliot Randolph[src]

Gloucestershire is a county in South West England.


HYDRA Society

"I came here for a costume ball – That was the pretext, of course – 'cause I had heard rumors of travel to the stars. Found it all to be nonsense. But it was a fun party."
Elliot Randolph to Phil Coulson[src]

A group of HYDRA members at Gloucestershire assembled in a castle to have a lottery. He who grabbed the white stone from the bag was to enter the room housing the Monolith. Lord Manzini grabbed the white stone and was sent into the room with a few weapons and some equipment. The portal opened and swallowed Manzini who was never seen again.

A few years later, a ball was held in the castle. One of the visitors was the Asgardian Elliot Randolph.[1]

Bringing Simmons Back

Jemma Simmons was swallowed by the Monolith. Leo Fitz discovered she had been transported to another planet. He, Phil Coulson and Bobbi Morse ask for the help of Elliot Randolph to understand the Monolith. He brought them to the HYDRA Castle where they put the Monolith inside a hole. Daisy Johnson used her powers to open the portal and Fitz jumped through it to save Simmons. The portal exploded, but Fitz returned safely with Simmons.[1]

Attack on the HYDRA Castle

"Trace puts Ward in the Southwest of England."
"They're at the castle where we brought Simmons back."
Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]

HYDRA took control on the HYDRA Castle and prepared to open the Monolith to Maveth and bring from there the Inhuman Hive. Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons were kidnapped by Giyera and were brought to the castle. Gideon Malick asked them to help them, but after the two refused, they were separated and Giyera tortured Simmons to get from her the information they needed. Fitz could not hear the screams of Simmons, so he volunteered to assist the HYDRA delegation to Maveth.

As Grant Ward prepared for Phil Coulson, who had informed him that he come for him to kill him, Malick convinced him to lead the delegation in Maveth and accomplish the goal of HYDRA. Ward agreed and he, Fitz and the team jumped through the portal to Maveth. However, a Quinjet flew above the castle, so HYDRA tried to shoot them out of the sky. As Malick ordered to close the portal, he saw Coulson jumping from the Quinjet directly to the portal.[2]

HYDRA brought a dozen Inhumans inside Suspension Gel, so they would serve the leader as his army. Meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrated the castle, freed Simmons and barricaded themselves inside the portal chamber. Malick also discovered that Lash had escaped from the Containment Module and killed all the Inhumans. He ordered his soldiers to break into the chamber. They tried to do so, but the doors were reinforced. After Coulson and Fitz returned to Earth, Alphonso Mackenzie ordered Melinda May to destroy the castle. However, Hive managed to go through it and encounter Malick on the road.[3]
