Layout[edit | edit source]
The castle is a large structure, shaped like a bulbus fin. It appears to have at least six stories . There are two short runways exiting in front of and behind the aircraft hangers. It contains a great hall which can hold many people. King Jhil lives towards the top of the Castle .
All the rooms in the castle are somewhat rounded in shape including the Great Hall, the Hangars and King Jhil's Private Room, with a flat floor and curved walls up to a dome at the top of the room . Doorways are arched and sometimes thick. The walls of the castle are presumably made from ceramics, a very common material that would give them a smooth appearance. The smoothness could also be the result of a paint or stucco covering.
Open fire pits with exhaust holes in the ceiling above are common and lghting seems to be some variation of gas lamp . The Wise Women of the Castle have an open fire pit as well .The aircraft hanger is large, with room for the Valley Gunship as well as several forges and other machines . The cellars of the castle are in the foundation. There are multiple junked gunships down there, presumably used for spare parts as well as Nausicaä's garden lab .
