Griffin Island is located just off the coast of California. The island itself began as a correctional institution of young teenagers who lost their way in life. Eventually, the island changed owners. Once a place bent on correcting bad behavior, Griffin Island became a place known for it's tight security. Teenagers who went there became entirely different people. After several incidents where these teenagers would break the law, the government quickly became interested in what was going on at Griffin Island. After a small struggle, the government took control and used Griffin Island as a training facility. The idea was to train an army of teenagers and young adults to be cold, calculating, killing machines. Unsuspecting parents would send their children into a place that would ensure they would never be the same again. Griffin Island had transformed into a project which was aptly titled BATTLESCHOOL.
