  • From the Mirage continuity, this is actually the family's second sewer lair. Their first lair under Manhattan was partially destroyed and abandoned in Volume 1 Issue 2 when it was discovered by Baxter Stockman's Mousers, when the turtles were 15 years old. It would not be permanently lived in by anyone again for at least two years. The turtles moved into their new friend April O'Neil's Second Time Around building, later joined by Splinter, where they lived for over a year. After the building was destroyed by Shredder's resurgent Foot Clan, the turtles, Splinter and April moved with Casey Jones to the Jones Farm in Northampton, Massachusetts, where they all lived together for at least another whole year. After the turtles killed Oroku Saki during the Return to New York arc, they and Splinter moved into a new sewer lair, and gave what was left of their first lair to Leatherhead for him to live in. The new lair is the Hamato Lair of MNT Gaiden. Although in Mirage this lair's borough location is never specific, in MNT Gaiden it is located under the borough of Brooklyn, where most of the story's New York City scenes are set. Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow. In thePrologue, the turtles are 17 years old. Eikichi Gotoh anonymously drops a package into the sewer, where it is eventually discovered by Hamato Splinter. The package is addressed to Splinter's long-dead human master Hamato Yoshi, and contains the Totsuka Sword and some Japanese scrolls. Splinter stores the package in his room in the Hamato Lair. His sons Michelangelo and Raphael sneak into his room to sneak a peek at the package's contents, the Curse of Yamata-no-Orochi first infects Raph, and the Prologue's story unfolds from there. After Splinter dies helping Leonardo destroy the Totsuka Sword, the rest of the family quickly disintegrates. Leo leaves immediately for Japan to learn more about the sword and its curse. Mikey also leaves the very same day, moving in with April O'Neil and wanting to leave his old life behind. According to Chapter 3:Broken Brotherhood - Burden from "Back Then", Raph and his brother Donatello share the lair alone for a little longer, until Raph's worsening temper and Donnie's descent into madness create too much friction between them, and Raph moves out into his own lair, leaving Donnie alone in what remains of the family's lair. Donatello becomes an antisocial hermit, converting the entire lair into a laboratory for his research, inventions and experiments. According to Chapter 19:Fragments of Truth Inside His Mind, Donnie sets up a secret cloning lab in the lair's lower reaches that not even the rest of his family knows about. There, he clones Splinter, but the clone is flawed and dies; Donnie keeps the clone's skeleton in a tank. To improve his cloning technology, Donnie starts making many clones of himself, one after another, which are secretly chained up and fed the corpses of previous clones. In Chapter 18:A Little Deeper in Donatello's World and Chapter 19:Fragments of Truth Inside His Mind, the lair is discovered by NYPD officer Tony Howard in his investigations of mutant appearances in New York City. But Donatello discovers Howard there and savagely murders him to protect his secrets.
