It is a calm place set amongst trees and waterfalls, and was built as a medical center for people affected by Geostigma. It also serves as the base of operations for the Shinra Electric Power Company following Midgar's destruction.
On the Way to a SmileEdit
In On the Way to a Smile: Case of Shinra, the Turks lead Kilmister to Cliff Resort when he requests a location to use to treat those with Geostigma, and to study the disease. Rufus Shinra is later transferred there, and Kilmister continues to study Geostigma at Cliff Resort while Rufus is being treated.
At the end of the novella, Kilmister is killed by the husband of one of his patients, and Shinra assumes control of the location, repainting the "Cliff Resort" sign with the new name "Healen Lodge". Rufus states that the "healen" in the new name means "to heal the world".
Final Fantasy VII: Advent ChildrenEdit
In Advent Children, Rufus Shinra is still resting at the lodge and is guarded by Reno and Rude while Tseng and Elena are sent out to seek Jenova's remains. However, he is dogged by the Remnants of Sephiroth, and so calls upon Cloud Strife to help. Cloud, suffering from his own internal demons, refuses. Shortly afterward, the Remnants attack and easily defeat the Turks. Kadaj drags Rufus away in order to lead him to the location of their "Mother", Jenova.
During Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, Reno and Rude speak in an added scene about Tseng and Elena. They also mention that many of Shinra's employees have returned to work, and have a lot to atone for in their role of almost destroying the Planet.
- It has been stated that Mideel was intended to be the place of refuge to Rufus, but the idea was rejected because of the distance between Mideel and Midgar.
- The location is seen called "Healin Lodge" on a sign in Advent Children (gallery), but by Advent Children Complete, it was changed to "Healen Lodge".
