- 418 Hildabrand Road
- 418 Hildabrand Road is the home of Blutbad Eddie Monroe. Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin first learned of the address when they suspected that Eddie might have been involved in the abduction of a young girl named Robin Howell. Members of the Portland police department raided Monroe's home, but were forced to let him go, after they realized that they did not have enough evidence on him to convict. Burkhardt returned to the house that night to find Eddie urinating on his own fence - marking his territory. Monroe really enjoyed decorating his home for Halloween. He was as enthusiastic about the day as most other people were about Christmas. He went to great lengths to decorate his home and even borrowed some equipment from Nick's armory for added effect. Most of the neighborhood children knew who Monroe was, and he always had a good turnout on Halloween night. However, a group of bullies decided to do things their own way and smashed out one of Eddie's windows. Monroe chased them down, but when the lead bully barked "I'm not scared of you", he showed them his true face, upon which they turned around and promptly ran away.
- 4753 Hildabrand Road
- 4753 Hildabrand Road is a street address located in Portland, Oregon. It is the home of the Howell family, which consists of a woman named Mrs. Howell, her father and young daughter, Robin Howell. The postman who serviced that route was actually a subspecies of Wesen known as a blutbad, which is a form of werewolf. In addition to being a blutbad, the postman was also a serial killer. He saw Robin walking to school one day and took note of her red sweater, which seemed to be a common characteristic amongst his victims. He abducted her on a trail near Berkeley Park and brought her back to his cabin deep in the woods. Although this technically qualified as a missing persons case, the similarity between the abduction and a previous murder warranted the attention of the Portland Police Bureau homicide division. Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin responded to the call and interviewed Mrs. Howell and her father. Fortunately, they were able to find and rescue Robin.
