Design and Building
The Nadeer Residence was one of the last houses designed by the father of Ellen Nadeer and Vijay Nadeer. After both her parents died, Ellen considered selling the house but ultimately decided to keep it in her family.
Vijay Nadeer was exposed to the Terrigen Mist, which triggered his Terrigenesis and enveloped him in a husk over several months. As Ellen Nadeer spearheaded the Humans First Movement and its violent campaign against the Inhumans, she decided to hide her brother from the public. After he emerged out of his husk, Vijay was taken to the Nadeer Residence by his sister Ellen so he could get some rest after his experience.
Vijay Nadeer woke up in the Nadeer Residence after he had a nightmare about the death of his mother. He went out to the Residence's yard, where his sister Ellen prepared breakfast for him. Together, Vijay and Ellen shared a meal and began discussing the return of S.H.I.E.L.D., about which they disagreed. Ellen ended the argument by offering to take a walk in the Residence's park.
However, this walk was the prelude to an ambush planned by Ellen and a group of Watchdogs, led by Tucker Shockley, with the objective of assassinating Vijay for being an Inhuman. As Shockley held Vijay at gunpoint, Ellen ultimately had a change of heart as Vijay pleaded that he had not changed whatsoever following his Terrigenesis. Despite Shockley's reluctance, he let Vijay go and all of them returned inside the house.
While Vijay was being guarded by the Watchdogs, Ellen and Shockley argued about the former's behavior. The argument was interrupted when S.H.I.E.L.D. came at the Residence: Jeffrey Mace, Quake, and Jemma Simmons, who knew about Vijay, asked for the opportunity of searching the house, but Ellen refused. As they discussed, Shockley decided to execute Vijay while his sister was distracted.
Vijay managed to counter the Watchdogs' attack as he had gained superhuman reflexes following his Terrigenesis. He defeated the Watchdogs and took the gun of one of them, shooting at the ceiling. The fight ended when Ellen joined the room, quickly followed by S.H.I.E.L.D. Despite Simmons' attempt, Vijay decided to remain with his sister. Ellen and Vijay then left the Residence in the Watchdogs' helicopter.
The Nadeer Residence is a large and quite luxuous homestead located near a lake. It features at least two elegant bedrooms, a large kitchen and a sunroom. Outside the house is a vast yard which gives access to a park.
