South

The southern part of the city has a chic family-oriented sort of charm to it. Here, small locally owned shops run rampant, neighbors often know each other by name, and the monthly socials are an event not to be missed. In the South, children can often be seen safely playing in the park or on sidewalks and in the weekends, families often take to the beach to enjoy the warm waters surrounding the city.

Ascension Center of Equitation

The Ascension Center of Equitation is the epicenter of the Dark Hunter Cavalry Unit. Originally a high-class facility for show-jumping, Ascension now caters entirely to the Cavalry Unit. Here the Dark Hunters learn how to ride and fight upon the backs of horses - many of which are Were's themselves.

Beachside Bar & Bistro

Resting right on the beach near the small, locally owned shops and markets sits a bar and bistro with an elegant yet modern interior. There is seating both indoors and outdoors on the back patio where one can enjoy the melodic sounds of saltwater waves and fresh air. The menu consists of French dishes alongside American and Seafood choices and a wide range of liquors at the bar inside to accommodate the varied tastes and cravings of its customers. It is a charming little establishment that allows for those needing a break from the busy city streets to come and unwind.

Hyde Park

Hyde Place takes up a large part of the Southern side of the city and includes a large playground, several fountains, and a small garden. The park is open from five in the morning till midnight though many shady characters may visit this place while it's technically "closed". The park has also been a venue for several concerts and hosts many holiday-related events. Under a full moon, witches are often seen here for the sacred ground beneath the iconic Weeping Beech.

The Outskirts

Beyond the city limits and over the bridge lies the deep, dark, and almost impenetrable forest. Often seen as a way to guard this magical city against the world that surrounds it, many are entirely ignorant of the evil that may creep between those tree trunks. Many were-creatures use the forest for the transformations of their newest members and some even take to hunting here. It isn't particularly peculiar for people to go missing within this forest but once you get through, the rest of the world awaits.

The University of Sacrosanct

The University of Sacrosanct offers some of the top programs in the nation with its outstanding campus and specialized faculty. The University places a high focus both upon educating future generations but also on research to help revolutionize the world. The University welcomes the talent of students across the world to enroll and unlock their unlimited potential. With applications from across the nation, classes fill up quickly.

It was supposed to be an easy night. She was going to go to the park, make herself comfortable under the old weeping willow tree, and utilize the magical properties of her patron moon to further intensify that potion she'd been working on for her latest client. This was supposed to be the very last step. Supposed to, supposed to, supposed to. God, damn it, when did anything work out like it was supposed to. She had been stalking the poor guy for at least two blocks now, not that he seemed to notice her in the slightest. Serafina was quite good at keeping her distance, at appearing as if she had other business then some fellow she hardly knew. It certainly helped that he seemed deep in thought and she had a whole lifetime of life on the streets to draw from. Really, it was the perfect mark and thief situation. Except she wasn't a thief...and he wasn't her mark....well, not exactly. It was more like he was someone else's mark, specifically the ghastly figure that had once fluttered and fretted behind him until she felt the pull of Serafina's own magic. She was like fucking magnetic to them. It was irritating. Sometimes, she didn't leave the house for days just to escape it. Serafina the samaritan. Maybe she should have played herself off as one of those crystal ball readers or....something. They were the ones everyone thought talked to the dead, right?

A soft sigh left her sweetheart lips as her stormy gaze settled upon the man, watching as he skirted into that bar with a clear intent on getting lost within that crowd of drunken debauchery. She couldn't blame him. He looked like he needed a good drink. Hell, she could use a good drink. Maybe she could convince him to buy her a drink - samaritan's needed their good deeds paid off right? Wait - was she here for a good deed? Her gaze slowly shifted to the corporeal figure beside her, watching the ghost as it fluttered and fretting, insisting she go in, insisting how much he needed her, even if he didn't know it, even if he wouldn't admit it. Something about help and...the Garden of Eden or some such nonsense. God, she hoped he wasn't some religious nutcase. She could hardly help that sigh that fell from her lips all over again, her hand reached up, running though those ebony locks, only for them to fall back in place with poised ease - the magic of good hair products. "I'm going to regret this." She muttered to no one in particular. "All right, all right, I'm going." Serafina continued to the ghost, only to open the door to the bar she'd seen the guy walk into.

It hardly took long to spot him amongst the crowd, their mutual ghostly acquaintance almost too eager to assist. Serafina easily wove her way through those tables, ignoring any eyes she might have caught in her rather direct route to him. There was a sort of confidence to her steps, an air of assuredness that hardly waned even as she slid into the booth opposite of her fellow Warlock. "So, you must be Christian. Your friend's told me allll about you. Though to be fair I kind of stopped listening half way through, she's pretty fucking annoying. She says you need help but she also seems kinda like the worrier type so don't waste my time if this is something as stupid as your toaster not working." The girl uttered, resting her chin within the palm of her hand as those blue-grey eyes stared at him, and then the air beside him....and back. "I bet she's your mom right? She seems like your mom. Or a lover. Did you ever have a wife? Girlfriend? God, please don't tell me your a virgin or something. Oh, what'd you get to drink?" That alcohol, it seemed, was far more interesting to Serafina then whatever problem she had to solve to put that ghost to rest and, in turn, to make it stop bothering her. That, of course, was what the young witch truly cared about.
