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.

Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium

The Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (PDZA) is an award-winning combined zoo and aquarium located within the Southern Part of Sacrosanct. Situated on 92 acres in Sacrosanct's Hyde Park, the zoo and aquarium are home to over 9,000 specimens representing 367 animal species. Point Defiance is also widely known for its conversation efforts regarding the breed and release program of Red Wolves.

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.

malek.

It was the second time in almost a year he had dressed for a wedding, and the first time he had attended the same wedding in almost a year. What a bizarre situation to be in and yet, Malek wasn't truly aware if he was going to attend. He had been absent for awhile, avoiding Chizue, if he was being honest, but he was always true to his word. The petite Asian woman had asked him to be her date and he could hardly refuse, though, he had a sneaking suspicion she didn't know he decided to come the second time around. The vampiric man snags a seat at the end, merely a shadow amongst the crowd. He was, however, thankful that Chizue wasn't missing this time around, his gaze turning down the aisle as the appearance of child waltzes down, scattering petals. He stands with the rest of the crowd watching as the fiery red-head moves gracefully down the way, linked in arm with a vaguely familiar man.

He hardly makes eye contact as a nervous ring bearer darts to and fro, a small smile tugging at the corner of his lips as he takes a seat. The ceremony is short and sweet, Malek easily able to slip out before everyone else as he enters the reception area. The man finds an unoccupied corner as his gunmetal gaze travels the crowd, looking for one woman in particular, though he's desperate to brave the line at the bar. As he scans the area, he's pleasantly surprised to see an all too familiar face, that boyish grin dancing upon a fellow vampire's face. Pushing out of his corner, he navigates the crowd gracefully before stopping in front of the dessert table, that very much looked guarded at that moment, a hand extending to the vampire. "Arlo, what a pleasant surprise," he grins like a fiend, hardly forgetting the last encounter with the young man, he expected Arlo hadn't as well.

Glancing up, he meets the gaze of the fellow strangers, a simper dancing on his lips as he nods to them in greeting. "I hope all is well," he states finally, genuine in his comment before his gaze travels across the crowd again. He finds what he's looking for, clapping the vampire on his shoulder briefly, "It was good to see you again, sorry I'm cutting this short - I am otherwise preoccupied for the rest of the night," he says, giving the crew one last nod before drifting away and wading through the people to find Chizue, seated alone, looking rather spectacular in her dress. Her sleek obsidian hair shines in the candlelight as he casually takes a seat next to her, a grin playing on his lips, "Hi," he says simply, "I apologize I took off without saying goodbye, or calling afterwards," he winces, "I hope you don't mind that I decided to come still."
