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.

BA in Plant Biology Abigail Hughes
He was certainly strange looking, not a wolf or a coyote but something close. She'd never seen a jackal before. He seemed pretty easy going and fun to be around though so she wasn't complaining. Maybe he'd be worth getting into some mischief with. She needed more friends like that. He changed his comment, saying he'd have to Daiquiri and dine her. She snorted, eyes rolling but she smirked none the less. He was witty. She'd give him that. As he glanced toward where the rabbit went, he said he'd have to skip the dining part since they lost dinner and she grinned a toothy grin. "I'd rather have venison or something else less stringy, anyway." Her eyes twinkled playfully. When he bumped her with his nose, she had to fight the urge to tense and growl in warning. The other Were's she knew weren't so fast to touch others and she still had the instinct to be dominant with others since the coyote pack she was in.
But she was no longer in that pack and he was only being friendly so instead she grimaced and tried to relax again. When she asked what he was, he seemed surprised before he laughed and she tilted her head, brows furrowing in question. Then he said he was a jackal and her ears flicked back before she shook her head. "Never heard of it. Related to coyotes or something?" He answered that though when he said they were practically cousins. She snorted again. "I'm not exactly versed in Were relations." Then when she teased him about going after an injured rabbit, he said he was an opportunist and she smirked. She could understand that. The coyote pack used to be scavengers before she made them into hunters. Then he said he was interested in what she had in mind and she grinned, showing teeth as her eyes lit up.
"Maybe we should find something more....lively." She raised a brow, wondering what he would think.
