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 of Sacrosanct

The University of Sacrosanct offers some of the top programs in the nation with its outstanding campus and specialized faculty. The University places a high focus both upon educating future generations but also on research to help revolutionize the world. The University welcomes the talent of students across the world to enroll and unlock their unlimited potential. With applications from across the nation, classes fill up quickly.

I'm more alive than I've ever been


There had been so terribly few moments in the years since her tragic end in which Isolt had felt elation as pure and as unfettered by doubt or trepidation as she did now. Her happiness was boundless, her soul no longer half in the tenebrific darkness that had lingered malifically in the periphery of her existence. She was standing before a man who, despite immortality's gifted resilience to such things, could still render her weak in the knees with naught more than a single, piercing glance in her direction. She was standing before the man that was to become her husband in the coming moments, her otherwise lithe frame plump with the promise of the family that they would soon share with one another, surrounded by those she cared most deeply for.

There was no grander euphoria than this, she was certain, as the officient pronounced them husband and wife and Damon swept her into his arms. Isolt was helpless against the smile that tugged shamelessly at the brims of her lips as they melded against her husband's, a delicate hand raising to coil into his hair. As a general rule Isolt was quite guarded when it came to matters of public affection, especially the grander displays that Damon seemed partial to pursuing as evidenced by the show he insisted upon making of this: their first kiss as a wed couple. But here and now, she hardly minded, instead allowing herself the indulgence of the caress as if she had been starved of it for an eternity.

As he rights her, though, Isolt must wage a not-inconsiderable battle to resist rolling her eyes at the whisperings of her lover, good-natured though the action certainly would have been. Instead does she lean in to allow her own lips access to his ear, imparting a playful prod of her own in this sensual, whispered joust. "How soon can we leave?" It is, admittedly, an impish farce as the fire-crowned damsel hardly intends to abandon their gathered guests in so sudden and unceremonious a fashion. Instead does she turn to the crowd, a small posse of caterers and their staff already moving to swirl about the scattered tables and the glistening wooden slab of the dance floor set a pace farther into the gardens. "Thank you all so very much for coming to share this night with us. Damon and I would like to invite you stay for dinner, dancing, and of course... drinking," she chuckles, motioning towards the just as a elaborately and elegantly-adorned reception area.

"I'll be just a moment, I want to find Harley," she offers, inclining towards Damon to brush a soft, affectionate kiss unto his lips before sauntering off into the bustling crowd.
