Welcome to one of Punisher’s multiple safe houses where Frank goes to rest from war. Here we find a large collection of arsenal Frank uses in his war on crime cluttering up the table, the floor, and up on the wall in the foreground. But there’s something different about this place.
Look at the alcove next to the TV in the background. This is the Castle Family Shrine, a makeshift memorial area where Frank goes to many times for some quiet time, to reminisce, to reflect, and to pay his respects to his wife and 2 children who where all killed by the mafia in New York City’s Central Park in 1974. Here inside the Castle Family Shrine, hidden underneath a cover, is the harp that The Punisher calls his “comfort girl” which he plays calm, soothing music that helps him to heal his wounds and relieve stress and fatigue caused by his personal war on crime.
Inside the shrine, Frank would play his harp while staring at the large family portrait on the wall hung between two candle displays which he lights up to create a solemn atmosphere accompanied by songs, prayers, and poems uttered and warbled by The Punisher who sings and harps in memory of his family.
