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 places a high focus both upon educating future generations but also on research to help revolutionize the world.

when we were young our eyes were blue

Ravens very insistence that those cows were called 'Wildebeest' so prompted that frown to the young man's features. Tobias content to scowl at those very creatures as if debating whether or not 'cow' or 'wildebeest' was in fact a better name for them. His companion's query on just why he seemed so eager to see them only further prompted that look of contemplation. Whatever thoughts so stirred within his mind so clearly attempting to align into a cohesive thought in some capacity. Tobias so understanding that question and yet the 'whys' of the world were so often distinctly difficult for him to compute. After all 'why' so required a deeper level of thought. An understanding of cause and reaction, a questioning of his own actions and their outcomes, some ability to reflect upon past, present and future all at once. He was not totally incapable of such things and yet the very strain they placed upon his mind was a struggle all the same. Tobias inclined to become frustrated at himself in those moments in which his mind refused to align itself. Those words that so often made sense in his head, so often coming out of his mouth in a near garbled fashion. One he had long ago accepted. Tetradore and Raven two of the few beings whom seemed to show a ready understanding for his language all the same. Tobias, for several more moments, seeming content to think on that answer.

"I like....the way.....the wildecows....move."

Wildebeest and Cows, it seemed, had become a combined animal. That very use of that word perhaps displaying his very ability to understand that what he had been calling cows were indeed Widebeest and yet once more those words so failed to offer themselves in an order anywhere near akin to correct. Tobias, for now, hardly seeming concerned all the same. That question, once answered, could easily be forgotten and dismissed. The man seeing little need to explain just what about them 'moving' so seemed to appeal to him. A predatory part of himself perhaps taking great delight in watching that prey species as it existed. That movement so decidedly attractive to him even if he didn't fully comprehend why. That more human part of himself, perhaps, merely enjoying that animal for what it was. Tobias' attention remained upon that waterhole as Raven leaned towards him. The man readily allowing his wife to fix and arrange his hair in any fashion she saw fit before her lips pressed to his cheek in that ready kiss. That gesture prompting a crooked simper to his features in clear display of recognition before the sudden sight of an approaching giraffe seemed to ensnare his attention entirely.

One hand lifted upward, Tobias gesturing to that animal now as Raven's own gaze moved to follow before she insisted that creature surely had a family. Those fathomless dark eyes moved to find that second giraffe and a much smaller third one that loped behind. The creatures spread their front limbs to bend and let their long necks reach down to the water. Tobias seeming decidedly taken with that very action, his lips so moving in those words that were mumbled and muttered to himself alone. His own head tilted slightly to the side, as if attempting to puzzle out some thought before Raven's hand returned to his hair to push it back once more. That very gesture seeming to distract his thoughts then. Tobias, once more, entirely content to allow Raven that touch he so often refused others.

"I did sleep well, thank you."

Those dark eyes turned suddenly towards her then. That often dark gaze so replaced entirely with that near molten, burnished gold. Those words holding no stutter or stumble. His voice holding a near deeper note then as Tobias offered his wife that warm simper- only to suddenly eye that ground around him with a clear curiosity as if puzzled as to why on earth he was seated upon that wooden verandah when a perfectly good chair beside Raven existed. That confusion clear upon his features then as he glanced suddenly toward Raven once more.

"Why am I on the ground? Do I....not like chairs?"

Was it possible his Other held some sort of disdain for seating? That frown upon his features only furthered then as Tobias shifted forward to pull himself to his feet and stand upright, the man dusting off his legs before eyeing that pair of boxer shorts. This, it seemed, the only thing he had chosen to wear this morning. Not that it mattered a great deal when he was with his wife alone atop those trees. Tobias turning to face her once more. How rare it was that he might have....any chance to be with her. At least like this. That other half to himself far...stronger in most instances and far more demanding of just who had control of that body they shared. That well rested sleep, for once, perhaps allowing him that chance to finally take over even if that time would be so undoubtedly short as it always was. His existence so veritably damned to watching from the shadows and yet- for those fleeting moments in the sun it was surely worth it all the same. His features softened readily as his gaze rested upon his wife then. Hmm. Wife. Maybe he could finally say it now and enjoy the sound of the word upon the tip of his tongue. His Other so far having stolen near all those moments from him.

He shifted suddenly then, moving to step behind that chair Raven reclined within before leaning down to let his arms drape across her figure in clear affection. Tobias dipped his head then, his lips pressing to the top of her shoulder before trailing up her neck in that sweet, teasing gesture before his head simply came to rest atop her own.

"I think, that it is finally time that you decided what we were going to do."
