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
It was a good thing she had Nadya to fall back on when it came to fashion emergencies. She wasn't even thinking about the fact that she had no bathing suits for this surf lesson from Ashton and she couldn't very well just wear regular clothes into the ocean. That sounded even more uncomfortable than just wearing them dry. Luckily, she went to Nadya, who set to work on taking her shopping. Malia still loathed shopping for clothes, mostly cause you weren't supposed to leave with them until you'd paid. Nadya showed him some bathing suits, both one piece and bikini and of course, she found that the less clothing she had on, the more comfortable she was. Except for those things they called a thong. Why would someone want a string up their butt?
She didn't get it so she shook her head vehemently at that. Instead, Nadya ended up buying her three very nice bikini's: one sky blue with hawaiian flowers on it, another fire red, and the third was lime green. Malia ended up putting on the red bikini for her surfing lesson, taking one last look in the mirror before she threw a tshirt over her top and slipped into some board shorts that Nadya bought her too. Then she headed out to the beach. She had had Nadya read the letter to her since she didn't know how to read. It had hit her after saying good bye to Ashton that night that he didn't know of a way to contact her besides her address. She didn't have a phone, not like she'd know how to use it even if she did, and not like she could read something sent to her on it anyway.
So instead she was pleasantly surprised when she was told she had mail. Her eyes practically glowed as Nadya told her what the letter said and she'd been giddy since that day. She couldn't wait to hang out with Ashton again. Slipping into some flip flops, cause she decided wearing minimal shoes was better than the other types of shoes they tried to make her wear, she made it to the beach in record time, mostly cause she was running. She just didn't like to walk very much, not when she could run just as easily. It didn't take her long to see Ashton's lean figure leaned against a wall with a large board beside him. She grinned and headed toward him. "Hey, stranger. Nice letter writing skills. I'm not late, am I?" She glanced around, as if expecting to see a clock hanging up somewhere. She was always told she didn't have very good punctual skills, since she didn't wear a watch or even know how to tell time. Usually she just asked the first stranger she met what time it was any time she wanted to know.
