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.

This was getting more and more fun as the night wore on. Serafina gave him a sly grin but he managed to bring laughter to her lips when he almost hit the men walking by. She agreed that they didn't know what to do and he grinned right back, feeling proud of himself. "Well of course not. Who could with this pretty face?" He pretended to be framing his own face, giving her a sly wink as they kept stumbling forward. When she stuck her tongue out at them, he felt his eyes darken for a moment, thoughts of where that tongue could surely go flitting through his mind before he shook his head and laughed when the men screamed obscenities back at them. He stumbled more toward her and snorted as she almost hit the building. He made a show of trying to cradle her head with his hand so it didn't hit the brick but he ended up mostly petting her hair instead. "Careful, sweetheart. Don't need to knock that pretty head."
When he asked more about the army though, she suspiciously went to giggling without words and he decided she wasn't talking anymore about it. Fine, he wasn't really in the mindset for investigating futher anyway and he might not even remember this in the morning. She laughed again when he called himself invincible, but for a moment he saw a shift in her eyes as she looked at him before they both remembered that drinks were needed ASAP. She grabbed his hand, tugging him down an alleyway where he almost came to blows with a homeless man in a cardboard box. But as he saw the neon lights, it all made sense. She agreed with him that it was beautiful and shouted for him to wait up as she stumbled after him. "Beauty waits for no one, darling." He purred back to her as he stumbled through the door, chuckling.
She was right behind him though, and when he pointed out the couple from the other bar, she told him that the ghost was still following them. He squinted and leaned forward, almost falling on his face as he shook his head. "What? I don't see him. Is he playing hide and seek?" But then he remembered the drinks and stumbled forward, all but collapsing into a chair as Serafina followed suit. She started talking, her words slurring and he threw his head back laughing. "There's no one there, sweetheart, but keep trying." He grinned before holding a card up for the bartender, who sent someone to their table. "What the lady just slurred and I'll have....hell, surprise me." The man looked between them in clear confusion before nodding and making his way back to the bar with Christian's credit card in hand. He'd probably leave that one too. Oh well, he had too many for his own good anyway.
He turned his attention back to Serafina, leaning on his elbows on the table to lean closer to her. "So, Sera....what's your favorite color? I need to guess what color underwear you have on." He smirked, his eyes twinkling, hazed with drunkeness and a flirty confidence that only grew stronger with alcohol in his system.
