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 seemed pretty happy go lucky for a new Were in a strange place. In fact, he didn't act out of place at all. He laughed and she saw a glow in his eyes at her own smirk, as if he was satisfied with himself. Maybe he was a people pleaser? As he glanced after the rabbit too, he asked if she was having second thoughts and she snorted, shaking her head. Rabbits were okay if she was particularly hungry and there was nothing else or she was just bored and wanted the chase. Otherwise, she'd rather go for a baby deer or something. When she mentioned that she'd rather have venison though, he said that he'd rather have steak, rare. She shook her head with a wry smirk. "Not many cows in the wild. You must go to restaurants more than I do."
He seemed to be pretty observant too, asking if she was okay when she fought off her urge to be dominant at his touch. She shrugged it off. "Yeah, just still getting used to this whole....interacting with other Were's thing." He'd surely only get more questions if she kept saying stuff like that, clueing him into just how naive she still was about all things human and Were. He seemed surprised that she hadn't ever heard of a jackal before, telling her that they were pretty closely related to coyotes and then telling her he even lived with some Were coyotes. Her eyes widened and she gasped, thinking of her former pack before she reminded herself that she was the only Were in it. He couldn't be talking about Caesar and the others. They definitely weren't Were's.
She tilted her head, lifting a brow. "Then you had the good life." She thought of how alone she felt all the time with the coyote pack she used to run with. It was so hard to communicate with them most of the time cause they didn't know many phrases and they lived on pure instinct whereas she'd always been able to think more clearly, strategize and make plans. Of course, her own thoughts were distracted by the mention of food. The male asked what she had in mind, his stomach agreeing with a growl which made her smirk as he said he was ready for anything. Her lips curled into a full grin at that. "Anything?" She questioned further, her eyes twinkling with mischief. "Then follow me." She turned on her heels and headed back, knowing she'd come across a good trail earlier but wasn't in the mood for a fight so she'd walked right over it.
It didn't take her long to find the trail again so with her tail swishing behind her in eagerness, she followed it until she reached a murky part of the woods where the mud was thick. The sounds of snorting filled the air as they tracked and finally she stopped, crouching low in the brush before looking to the male. "Still ready for anything? Cause that mama pig might think differently." She licked her lips as she watched the family burrowing in the mud. They could go for one of the suculent piglets or go big and hunt down mama pig herself. She waited to see what the male would think.
