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.

Broken but Not Shattered

Olivia flinched away as the bush next to her exploded with motion. She let out a strangled gasp. She forced herself to not scream as she was gripped by fear. She closed her eyes and crouched down trying to curl herself into ball. After a few seconds when she realized she was not being attacked. She cautiously lifted her head , and opened her eyes to be met with the excited form of a dog. Olivia was surprised, but she had no fear of dogs. She had grown up with dogs her whole life until a certain day. She cautiously reached out a hand to try and pet the puppy, but as she a single sharp whistle broke the near silence of the night. Olivia's hand snapped back to her body, but then she froze. Fear caused her to freeze. Her mind began to race. She quickly sniffed the air, but she didn't smell the telltale blood of a living body. Whoever has whistled had to be like her. She stood as the dog continued to circle her, but as she did she saw the form of a man appearing from around the bush.

Olivia bit her lip in an effort to focus. Her instinct screamed for her to run, and that this vampire somehow knew her crime. She wanted to scream and run with every ounce of her being, but she also knew that was unlikely to help. She was far too weak from her starvation to get very far before a healthy vampire would catch her. She turned her head enough that half of her face was visible from where the male vampire stood with his other dog. As the man spoke to her Olivia felt a shiver run down her spine. Confusion began to mix with her fear. His words were kind sounding, but she still felt fear. The fear had warped her. She watched as the man seemed more concerned with his dog. "I-it's okay. I li-like dogs. Wouldn't hurt it sir." Her words came out slow and raspy. The act felt strange. She hadn't spoken in quite some time. Her voice was weak, but she was sure she was loud enough to be heard. She had barely gotten the words out past the nearly choking sensation in her throat. Maybe if she was lucky she could escape the situation without having to run.
