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
How did he sit up here? She felt so unsteady, her knuckles almost turning white from holding the edges of the board so tightly. She felt like if she let go, she would surely roll right off and into the water. He told her to balance on her stomach and she scowled at him. "What do you mean, like a seal or something?" She didn't know how else to describe the way that sounded to her. He pushed the board out deeper and she felt her heart racing in her chest. What if she fell off? What if her dog paddle didn't work in this form? Would she drown? Surely Ashton wouldn't allow that. He assured her that she could sit up so she slowly but surely pulled herself into a sitting position. It felt so weird to be sitting like this. She gasped as she looked around. It felt like there was nothing but ocean all around her, even though she could see the shore and other people from here. Still, it felt isolated and nice...peaceful.
She smiled, letting her hands slowly release the board and start to wave back and forth on the surface of the water. When he told her good job, she glanced over to beam at him, her eyes practically glowing. For a second, she thought he looked uncomfortable about something, his gaze shifting suddenly like he was looking somewhere he shouldn't. Perplexed, she leaned down a little. "You okay? You seem a little....tense." She raised her brow, obviously teasing but there was a twinge of concern in her face cause she hated to think that she was actually causing him any discomfort with this lesson. It was supposed to be fun and a way for them to hang out. Then he said that he used to do a lot of surfing back home and she smiled, glad to hear more about his life before he came to Sacrosanct. "Oh yeah? Was that before the skating rink opened up for the day?" She smirked, bringing up how good he was at that, too.
