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
He seemed intrigued when she mentioned being with a coyote pack. Apparently he thought she meant Were's. She spoke of raiding and he seemed surprised. She rolled her eyes. "It's hardly noteworthy when you're eating to survive. That's all they knew. Scavengers. I had to teach them different." She was proud of bringing the coyote pack into the life, making them into predators again. They probably were back to their old ways without her though. He started to get it, though, asking if it was actual coyotes and she nodded. Then he asked how long she lived with them and she shrugged. "Most of my life. From puphood to just a year ago or so." When he mentioned being too hot in his human form not to shift back, she laughed with a yipping bark.
She probably wouldn't have minded his former pack too much, since she was always more comfortable in her Were form. She'd been working on that same comfort in her human form, though. It was a work in progress. He told her she'd have to check out his human form sometime and she couldn't help but smirk. "Guess I will." She said with a wink. He admitted that bacon was his favorite food and she took that as a good sign as she took off after the wild boar's trail. It wasn't too long before she found them and went in for the attack. She was trying to motion to him that he was to take out the piglets but he hesitated. Her ears went back. She didn't want to take her full attention off of the raging boar but she kept glancing at him. What was the big deal? Killing baby animals was all part of living to her.
Suddenly he shouted at her about getting a real steak and said it was his treat. She growled and lunged at the boar one last time, dancing out of reach before launching herself right over its back and racing toward Marcelo. "Fine, but first you gotta outrun the boar." She grinned as she took off past him, knowing the boar was right on her heels.
