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.

i'm not ashamed of my scars, i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.

She was pleased to hear that Tobias was willing to agree that the activities she proposed the two of them to do as agreed upon. It wasn't like she always got to decide what they would do together. Most of the time she just followed along with whatever it was Tobias was in the middle of doing. Sometimes his choice of activity was unique and fun! Other times his activity was peculiar and perhaps not at all legal. No, definitely not legal. Spending time with elephants seemed like a good idea. She was sure her mate would find something fun about them. After all they were quite interesting. Heading on over to the closet she removed the robe from herself and began to get dressed. Sliding on her pants she spoke over her shoulder when he inquired about his shoes. Raven knew exactly where she had placed them. The lupine didn't want her spotted companion to do something silly like throw the boots outside. Last time she bought him shoes he threw them out into the ocean, and they sank. Slipping on the tank top and plaid shirt, she rolled her eyes as he commented on his feet and how they were indestructible.

"Have you bothered to take a look at my own? Your feet do not bother me, trust me. However, you will wear the socks."

That last statement was said quite firmly. Although Tobias' feet was mounted heavily with thick skin that didn't mean he was going to be able to walk across the African safari without a pair of socks on. What if he developed blisters? What if some sort of bug crawled in there? She loved him quite dearly, but she had no intention of rubbing and washing his feet. It wasn't that she was against pampering her mate or touching his feet. The lupine just didn't have a desire to. She already had a bit of a difficult time trying to get the boy to take a shower or get his hair washed. Besides if he was so concerned about his own feet then he should be more aware of her own. Even though she was a girl that didn't necessarily she was accustomed to following social norms went it came to how a woman should make herself presentable.

Lacing up her hiking boots she held his hand as they walked over towards the lobby. Gesturing over to the food that was set out for them, knowing both sides of him loved food, she focused on the other task at hand. Getting the supplies they would need for their car riding adventure. Finding the boy eating probably his 11th strip of bacon she held the map, key, and picnic basket, to motivate him to leave the rest of the food alone. Grinning she held his hand as they walked out of the lobby, down the tree, and off to the carpark. Once he found their car she was going to head towards the passenger door until he stepped forward first and opened the door for her. A small simper appeared at the gesture, remembering that wintery night when he did this for the first time for her. Giving him a light kiss on the cheek she slid into her seat. Turning around she placed the picnic basket on the floor behind her seat, and then turned back around to shut her down. Pulling the seatbelt across she chuckled softly the moment he turned on the car, that wide grin on his face clearly showing how excited he was to drive. Nodding that she was indeed ready she started to open up the map to look for that trail he had in mind. The mention of having her phone caused to try pluck it from her pocket, attempting to look up the answer.

"They drive on the left hand side of the road."

Blue-grey eyes watched as Tobias made some adjustments turning left onto the red trail. She would look down at the map, keeping an eye on the route. She would look back up at the landscape, sighing softly in peace. It was absolutely beautiful, unlike anything she had seen before. There were some the different prey animals with hooves scampering about through the tall grass. Signaling up ahead for him to take a left, her body leaned to the left as he did his turn, shifting into another gear as the truck ambled along. His inquiry about wanting to live elsewhere made her tilt her head thoughtfully for a moment. The idea of them no longer living at the Ark with their pack wasn't something that crossed her mind. As far as she was aware all was all right in her world to live on that old container ship. If Tetradore decided to move the pack somewhere else she would happily follow along. Her mate didn't seem troubled by living in the city. But she was curious as to why he would bring it up, there had to be a reason. Finding no harm in answering his question she shrugged her shoulders and replied.

"Honestly, I haven't really thought about it, I didn't really dream about the future when I was younger."

It may seem like a depressing answer, but it was the truth. Although she doubted her mate wanted to think about those painful years she had endured, so she hastily attempted to move the conversation forward.

"I guess if I could choose I'd like to live in the woods. I used to live in the woods and I enjoyed it. Although I'd like to live near the mountains, where you can see them in the distance. But I'm content with living in the city, all our friends and family are there...we can't leave them."

Turning her head around to look at him she tossed the question right back at him.

"What about you though? City or not?"

Raven Cain.
