The Baumann Parahuman Containment Center, better known as the Birdcage, is a prison for parahumans that have committed crimes severe enough that they must be removed from society. It is not designed to allow prisoners to leave after they have been imprisoned within it, as prisoners need to be teleported in, there is no ways in or out of the prison.

The Baumann Parahuman Containment Center is located inside a hollowed-out mountain in British Columbia, part of the greater Rockies mountain range.
The Baumann Parahuman Containment Center was designed and is maintained by Dragon. It is inside a hollowed out mountain whose walls are lined with ceramics that were designed by Dragon, each layer of the mountain contains dormant containment foam, which will automatically start expanding upon a wall breach. Inside the mountain is a vacuum, and three thousand anti-gravity drones, which will detonate upon an abnormality. Some of them contain containment foam and some are much more lethal.
The prison itself is suspended inside the mountain by the same pipes that supply it with it's supplies (such as books, blankets, cigarettes, food, water and air, and other objects), it is also split up into wings, the walls between which are negligible, allowing all the prisoners to intermingle. Although the cell blocks are usually run by someone and some are very organized, such as Marquis' block, block W.
Teacher surmised that there may actual be a spacial warping device that makes the entire prison no bigger than one's fist. This is why it would be nearly impossible for someone to break out.
- The Baumann Parahuman Containment Center was presumably built before 2002, given that Teacher refers to Marquis being imprisoned there for eleven years, after being released in 2013.
- This represents a potential plot hole: Before Leviathan attacked Newfoundland in 2005, Dragon served only as an AI assistant to Richter and probably did not have the resources to create the Birdcage.
