England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west; the Irish Sea is to the north west, the Celtic Sea to the south west, while the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south separate it from continental Europe. Most of England comprises the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain in the North Atlantic. The country also includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.
After Robert Thorn is appointed US ambassador to Great Britain, he, his wife Katherine and their adopted son Damien move to London, England. After three years living in London, Robert leaves England and returns to Rome with Keith Jennings to investigate Damien's origins. After Katherine is murdered by Mrs. Baylock and Robert is shot and killed while trying to stab Damien after returning from Israel, Damien and the bodies of his adopted parents are sent back to the U.S.
At some point after becoming heir to Thorn Industries, Damien Thorn returned to England and moved back to London. When the Second Coming of Jesus Christ occurs in England on March 24, Damien orders the Disciples of the Watch to massacre every baby boy born in Britain on 24 March between midnight and 6 AM (in an attempt to avert Damien's prophesized defeat by Christ). Cities throughout Scotland and England are affected by the massacre, but Damien's efforts ultimately fail and he is killed.
