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.

something wicked this way comes

The young witch was hardly oblivious to the blatant stare of disinterest she was presented with and yet, it hardly deterred her in the slightest. She was used to those looks, to the stares of judgment, to those glances that so clearly projected the individual wanted particularly little to do with the odd, peculiar duckling. That gaze he beset her with was little compared to those glares she gotten before durings those nights she'd once spent homeless on the streets of the cold metropolis. This, should could handle. Serafina hardly gave the man the opportunity to shoo her away. Instead, she easily continued on, informing the man she knew not only his name but too that someone was worried for him, though who the ghost was in relation to the man sitting before her, she had not yet been able to weasle through the dead woman's lips. Even so, the youthful witch remained entirely attentive to his facial features as she continued through that list of all too plausible identities from the mysterious ghastly figure that had taken to haunting the poor, tired man. That confusion was all too easy to spot, much less the way he was clearly going through his own list of 'who-could-it-bes'. She'd seen that look frequently enough.

That insistence that he most certainly didn't need her help, however, was spoken with such finality that even Serafina raised a singular eyebrow at him. "Uh huh." She uttered, the skepticism quite clear within the young woman's voice. She was hardly dissuaded by his assurances, instead continuing to list all possible people that woman could be, prompting that consideration within him all over again. That sudden laughter on his lips was hardly expected and yet, she took it to be a good sign anyways, at least until he offered her that shot glass. Oh yes, this was exactly what she needed. Her slender fingers reached out for the shot glass, raising it to her lips. Her nose twitched, sniffing the beverage before the young woman smoothly tossed the beverage back. She knew that taste. It was her ex's favorite drink. The witch made a face as it went down, the flavor had a clear bite to it and yet, she supposed the whole intent was merely for that buzz. It would certainly get the job done...with a few more. Her stormy gaze glanced upwards as Christian dismissed the idea of a mother, lover, girlfriends, wife or any other plausible answer to who that ghost was besides him. The assurance that he had last dated someone not a she caused her eyebrow to raise ever so slightly.

"Ahh....the handsome ones always end up gay." She stated as if this was a certain fact. Not that it mattered to her one way or another. It was a shame, perhaps, but, oh well. That gruff tone his voice took on at that very mention of his virginity only prompted a snort from her nose. "Well, someone's touchy." She retorted and yet, in typical Serafina fashion, she was undaunted in the face of that danger, recklessing ignoring all of those tell tale signs he was attempting to give off to simply leave him alone. That smirk upon his features as he inquired of just who she was in relation to this woman caused Serafina to shake her head. "No, I'm not." She responded, pausing before the witch finally saw fit to provide him with that very name he sought. "Serafina, you're friendly, neighborhood ghost whisperer." She introduced herself, referring to that terribly cheesy TV show from her youth. It was sad that her whole life had been reduced to a tv show pilot.

"You happen to have a ghost attached to you. I suppose maybe you two didn't know each other at all. Sometimes they get lonely and just like to watch over someone. I wonder if she has a crush on you." She uttered, leaning her cheek against the palm of her hand. "Anyways, since she knows I can see her, she likes to get all annoying and bug me till I satisfy whatever need she has with you...and then she goes away and I go away. Easy peasy, right?" Well.....it sounded easy....in theory. It almost never was. Frankly, Serafina suspected this would be the case with this guy too.
