|“||Garret: What do you do down here?
Janzo: Oh you know, mostly dismember bodies, making magical potions.
Garret: Ah, I figured.
Janzo: It’s a brewery, Captain, I make ale.
There is an above-ground entrance that resembles that of a storm cellar. It allows for quick and silent access by visitors. The entry to the lab is a ramp, which has been utilized by visitors to slide corpses and objects down. The lab is often where Janzo solves many complex issues at the Outpost and makes ale.
Janzo uses the lab to escape from the complexities of the Outpost and work on projects. While he makes ale and wines in his lab, he also brews concoctions and potions to help fellow residents. He also keeps his extensive book and scroll collection in the lab along with the little personal belongings he does own. Some of the books and scrolls are a list of ingredients that have been used throughout history. Since Wren and Janzo have become a couple they use and share the lab together.
Janzo occasionally tends to Talon's wounds when needed.
When Garret Spears recruited Janzo for help with the Plagueling epidemic, Janzo began using his lab as an autopsy area. At the peak of the epidemic, infected corpses were in and out of the lab at all hours of the night. While initially unhappy with the fact infected bodies were in his place of work, Janzo grew more comfortable with the idea as time passed. He performed procedures, experiments, and recorded his research in the lab.
After being infected by a Plagueling, Garret came to Janzo's lab as he knew it was the only place people wouldn't look for him. Janzo converted the lab into a makeshift doctor's office during this brief period.
Upon returning to the Outpost, Garret was kept captive in Janzo's lab while Janzo tried to find a way to restore Garret to his rightful mind. When Garret was restored, the cells served as cages for Plaguelings. When the prisons were full of other prisoners, the guards placed Sammy in the cell in Janzo's lab. He also cured the Plagueling epidemic here and concocted bombs and other weapons to aid The Coalition.
When the Blackbloods came from the Plane of Ashes the alchemist Wren came along with them. Janzo and Wren worked together to solve and open the Meld Box. Afterwards, the two become lovers and work together to help solve The Hive epidemic. They first discover how the kinj reproduces and how long it takes for that to happen. Then Wren figures out a way to identify who is infected. Later on they are examining the Meld Box and the map, when Janzo discovers that there is a wax stamp on the map. After tasting it and going through his library, he is able to identify the substance is the sap from the now extinct ficter bush.
