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.

There is an almost wolffish smile all over that jackal face of his. Those normally dark chocolate eyes shine a bright gold out from that canine, foxlike face of his. He certainly would be a strange sight here in Sacrosanct. At least for the coyote before him it would seem. Jackals were not exactly native to this part of the world. Marcelo certainly wasn't complaining about being special and different, the boy had never minded standing out and receiving any sort of attention. Especially of the female variety. Marcelo had a big head, and lived under the delusion that he was far more important than he actually was.

She laughs, rolling those eyes of hers and Marcelo finds his own sort of jackal laughing hitting through his teeth in response to her. She rolls her eyes, but there is a smirk, and Marcelo thinks in that moment that it was a small victory. He follows her eyes with his own of gold, noting they drift in the direction of where the rabbit had gone. "Getting hungry and having second thoughts about interrupting my hunt?" He jests in good nature. But then she says how she would rather have venison. "I think I would rather have steak," he says with a toothy smile of sorts. "Rare," he says, licking his lips, just thinking about the taste.

"You okay?" He questions the coyote as he takes a step backwards. Marcelo may love to hit on women (in human or were form) but he wasn't about to push himself onto a lady or make them entirely uncomfortable. He was raised in a time long, long ago, and there was still some of those old time, proper manners still engrained within him.

The were boy tilts his head in the were girl's direction. Who had never heard of a jackal before? How strange. Those ear atop his head swivel back and forth for a moment as he thinks about what they were related to. Jackals were from Africa, and frankly, he was sure on the entire evolutionary history of the animals. But, as those golden eyes looked to the female before him, and Marcelo recalls his time spent with the were coyotes here in this country, he decides to nod. "Yeah, sort of, probably closer than anything else I would say," he says, thinking perhaps this is an acceptable answer. "I lived with some were coyotes for a little while and there wasn't really any difference between us," he says, and the weres he had lived with had been pretty strict to their animal nature.

With the coyote's next words though, this is where Marcelo's interest was certainly peeked. "What did you have in mind?" And if on cue, his stomach grumbles as a growl finds his throat. "I am ready for anything."
