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
She could tell that she'd done good when she saw the smile on his face. She smirked, leaning over to nudge his shoulder. "You should smile more often. Brings out your eyes." She even poked his nose gently with her finger before coming back up on the board. She hadn't meant for him to hear her last comment but it was too late, now. She raised a brow at him when he said that she seemed pretty smart. She snorted. "Yeah right. At least you can read." She froze when he reached over to brush hair behind her ear, though, inhaling sharply.
Afterward, she tried to shrug it off, looking out over the water and asking about another wave just to change the subject. He'd had his awkward moment with her feeling his hard on and now she'd had hers with an affectionate gesture. She was glad he'd already pushed her toward the wave so maybe he wouldn't see the blush on her cheeks cause usually she never did that. She tried to concentrate, and was glad he'd agreed with her about trying again. She wanted to get this right, or at least stand up on the board. In a way, she wanted to make him proud, to show him he was a good teacher.
She tried to paddle more this time, wanting to keep up better with the wave. When it started picking up the back of the board, she took a deep breath and pushed herself to her feet. Before she knew it, she was squealing, turning back around to find Ashton. "Ashton, look, I did it! I'm -" The board moved out from under her and she screamed as she fell face first into the water.
