: 1 a character representing one or more of the sounds used in speech; any of the symbols of an alphabet; 2 a written, typed, or printed communication, esp. one sent in an envelope by mail or messenger

: establish or settle (someone) in a comfortable, safe, or secret place
I am settled into my secret place. Woot!
