The House of El Citadel was the residence of Jor-El, Lara Lor-Van and briefly their infant child Kal-El. The home was large and included an Observatory, Armory, and a birthing room, which rested on a clifftop.
For many centuries it had been home to the members of the House of El.
After going to the Central Hub and retrieving the Codex, Jor-El and Lara say their last goodbyes to Kal-El before placing him in a Ship. As Lara does the final launch procedures, Jor-El puts on his battle armor as General Zod and his forces arrive for the Codex. Jor-El and Zod battle until Jor-El defeats Zod as Lara launches Kal-El's ship. As the two watch their son depart, Zod stabs Jor-El. Zod and his forces try to shoot down the ship but are out numbered and captured.
After Zod and his followers are sent to the Phantom Zone, Lara returns home and along with Kelex and Kelor, watch as Krypton is destroyed.
