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.
She seemed to only grow more amused as time wore on. He was really started to regret coming in here, but he'd never been one to turn down a challenge, and he knew she was probably expecting him to turn tail and run. Which was exactly why he wanted to make sure it was the last thing he did. At his vague answer, she agreed it was fair but he already knew by the twinkle in her eyes that he wasn't getting of that easily. She bit into her bottom lip before pointing out numerous patrons around them that apparently weren't human either. He probably could have guessed that himself but the droll confirmation made his skin crawl in all the wrong ways.
It was just in the way they held themselves, the predatory way in which their eyes followed others in the room. He could have put them all down as the human kind of predator: a molester, rapist, something of that sort, but he already knew too much just from his brief encounter with that little girl in the park. There were other kinds of predators out there, and leave it to him to have come across another one in this huge city. What kind of luck was this? He swallowed but didn't allow himself to look scared. Instead he just silently looked back at her, listening as she went on about how he must already know it and explained in minute detail how they made him feel, as if she could read his thoughts or something. Just great. Did she have those kinds of powers too?
As her hand covered his, he inhaled sharply, ready to snatch it back and tell her he was a happily taken man, but he felt the shiver down his spine and a tickle at the back of his mind, like she was doing something other than just hitting on him. Gasping at the shock of it, he pulled his hand back, putting it on his drink for something else to do even as his gaze narrowed on her. "I only know because I've run into someone before that wasn't....human. I guess I was blissfully ignorant before that and sometimes, I think I'd like to go back to that." Maybe it was a confession he shouldn't be making in a place filled with these "creatures" but if anything, it would probably only amuse her more just how oblivious he was to whatever world it was she lived in.
She gave him a nickname, Gears, and he arched a brow in surprise. She wanted him to guess what she was. Sighing, he shook his head slowly as he racked his brain. "To tell you the truth, I don't think I even want to know the extend of what really exists outside of fairy tales. I saw what you did with the gun....so I'll guess witch or wizard or whatever it is you'd call yourself. You know magic, right? That's what you did when you touched my hand." He had to find some sort of explanation for it all, right?
