The east side of the city is the very heart of Sacrosanct - it's unique skyline is a clash between modern sky rises and small Victorian-inspired storefronts. In the heart of downtown, the sleek colored glass buildings reign supreme though their old-world roots can be seen in the most peculiar places from the lamp post styled electric street light to the stone sidewalks. The old world architecture slowly returns the further from downtown you travel, however. It's here that magic thrives, it hums in every stone and can be felt in every breath. Often, newcomers to the city may become overwhelmed by such sensations but, eventually, it becomes an ever-present feeling that's hardly noticed.

With one hundred floors and a 125-foot spire, the Starlight Tower rises high above the Sacrosanct skyline. More than just a landmark, the Starlight Tower offers a unique mix of restaurants, shops, and offices spaced throughout the building. Organized into nine verticle zones, each of which features a sky lobby and a light-filled garden atrium which merge the upscale interior with a faux landscaped exterior setting.
The jewelry store was quiet for the most part, but he was okay with that. He hadn't really looked twice at the other patrons as he came in, seeing as how there was less than a handful present. There was probably two staff members here for every one customer at the moment. It was almost sad, but Taylor only cared for finding something worthy of Adelaide. He easily grew distracted by the sparkling necklaces in the case, though he could feel a pair of perusing eyes on him but for a moment before the sensation disappeared. He thought nothing more of it until he heard the crash of the door behind him and the raised voices. Around him, the staff members hit the floor, hands in the air the second they saw the guns. That was when he took the moment to look around, seeing an elderly gentleman who was probably buying something for his 50th anniversary or something trembling against the counter and a woman in leather who looked anything but intimidated as she put her hands up.
There was almost something sarcastic about the gesture, or maybe it was just the look in her eyes, like she could give two shits about the men waving around guns in front of her. Taylor himself wasn't a fan of guns. He would rather take it outside and just brawl. Hit each other till one of you tires out. That was always the way to settle things in school, though maybe that's part of the reason he was suspended so much, or didn't even finish high school. He got distracted in his own thoughts only till he heard a voice extra loud. "Hey, idiot, on the floor!" Then he noticed that the barrel of the gun was pointed right at his head by the irritated looking man holding it. Oh yeah, he'd basically stood there motionless at the counter the whole time. He was almost amused by the whole thing. Instead he nodded to let the guy know he understood, not that the guy cared, his gun staying steady on Taylor's head as he lowered himself to the ground on his stomach, hands above his head.
He couldn't help but keep watching the girl though. She was going to cooperate, right? He'd hate to see someone get killed right in front of her, especially not a woman. He had a savior complex, after all, and he might end up doing something stupid and getting himself shot. Sighing, he looked around, surveying the shop as if to look for loopholes. He was apparently not a threat to the man who had been waving the gun at him anymore cause he moved on to grinning as he looked inside the jewelry cases, getting excited as another guy demanded one of the staff workers empty the money drawer into a bag. It seemed pretty standard. Taylor just hoped they'd leave something for him to buy for Adelaide.
