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.

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.

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 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.
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.

Drunk was indeed the magic word. No, wasted sounded even better. And that's exactly how he wanted to feel by the end of tonight. He was fast on his way with the help of the pretty witch across from him. Right up until she decided to make it a Michael Jackson music video by making the dead appear in the bar. He was more than a little surprised to find his own third grade teacher staring right back at him. Of all the women in his life to be obsessed enough with him to haunt him past the grave.... But he didn't have to think about it too long before Serafina was grabbing his wrist, pulling him out of the bar with her. They landed against the wall and he laughed, his body coming to life at the sudden contact and he couldn't stop the groan that fell from his lips. She brought her finger to his nose, asking if he liked her as he chuckled and nipped at her finger.
"Don't worry, you're not my type, Twisty." He liked that nickname for her. Somehow he was sure it fit her. She was too much like him if he was being honest with himself. He never chose women that had dark pasts and haunted eyes they hid behind morbid humor. No, he wanted the safe ones, the pretty and shallow girls who only saw what they wanted to see and never questioned motives. Serafina was hot and her confidence was sexy but he'd sworn off witches and warlocks a long time ago, even though he already broke that rule with Killian when he first got to town. He wouldn't do it again. He couldn't. It was hitting too close to home and he'd buried that drama too far down to go digging for it again. She started dragging him down the sidewalk toward another bar and he whined about leaving his credit card. He wasn't about to go back for it though. He could cancel it in the morning.
She asked him why he did that for and he shrugged before grinning. "Seemed like a fun idea at the time, I guess." He drawled. He tried to keep up with her but even drunk, she had a long stride for such a short stature. Finally she slowed and looped her arm through his, saying something about necromancy and that she could do possession. She went over the ideas of killing his coven, saying she could make them kill each other or get her other army. Christian lifted a brow. "Your other army? Oh, do tell. You got a few buried in the backyard or something, just in case?" He smirked, his eyes twinkling. This banter was at least helping keep him distracted. "Oh, there's one!" He pointed at a bar across the street from them where people were already pouring out in hives, stumbling over each other, some even singing. Now they seemed to be having a good time.
