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
The witch was definitely something else. She locked her arm through his, leading him down the sidewalk as if she was any better of a judge for walking drunk. They still weren't in another bar yet though, which was disappointing to say the least. He should have another drink in his hand by now. Instead she told him about the Army but he had a hard time believing Hunters and Were's could work together in a big group like that. She admitted that she had a familiar herself then, saying they got along mostly fine though she wanted to kill her sometimes. The idea made him laugh more than he probably would have if he was sober. He scrunched up his nose and shook his head. "Ugh, self righteous assholes are the WORST." He slurred the words, throwing his arm out dramatically again and almost hitting some other drunks as they walked by.
"Hey, watch where you're going, you drunk!" He yelled back at them before falling into hysterical laughter. "Did you see that? I sure told them!" He said to Serafina, laughing some more as he leaned on her. She giggled when he asked if the leader of this so called army was a legend or something. Apparently she either found his disbelief amusing or maybe just drunk him was amusing enough. He called himself invincible though his brows furrowed as she took his hand and said he wasn't. "Am, too." He tried to whisper the words but of course, that was all but impossible in his current state so instead he just said it at normal volume. When he reminded her about getting drinks though, that seemed to get them somewhere cause then she said this way and moved down an alleyway. He snorted as they banged around through boxes and stuff. He was pretty sure he tripped over a homeless person too who yelled at him to get out of his "house" but all he was tripping over was a cardboard box.
The idea made him laugh for some reason. Before he could ask Serafina why the man chose to live in a box though, he saw the neon lights of the bar she was pointing to and he gasped. "Wow....it's beautiful." He exclaimed, stumbling forward. "I got first round!" He yelled to her as they stumbled through the door. No one seemed to look up, seemingly used to the bar hoppers this time of night. But he saw two people scooting toward the exit, eying them as if they recognized them. He pointed in their direction. "I know those guys! They were standing next to the man with a hole in his head!" He was talking about the ghosts that had appeared in the other bar, of course, but people were already staring at him like he himself had a hole in his head. The two people in question swallowed and all but ran out the door at his exclamation, fear in their eyes. They obviously assumed Christian or Serafina had something to do with the ghosts.
Christian snorted and moved toward a table, all but falling onto the chair as he patted the one next to him. "What will you be having, Miss Ser-a-fina-a?" He slowly enunciated her name, chuckling at himself after as he lifted a brow and smirked. He was definitely trashed and he didn't give a damn. It felt so good.
