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.

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.

Ashes to Ashes

It was much harder to hunt during the day. Anna was finding it rather difficult to find a secluded place to feed with so few shadows to hide amongst. One must eat though and she hadn't seen Taylor in days. She had managed to lure a woman off the path from her late morning run, feigning being lost and injured as that always seemed to tug at their emotions. That much Anna had learned over the many years. That warm copper liquid slid down her throat and warmed her body, flushing her cheeks with that stolen life.

It was the sound of laughter on the breeze that caught the girl's attention as she released the drained body. A groundskeeper would surely find it and clean it up within a day or two. Anna wiped the smear of blood from her lips with the back of her hand as she followed the sound of play. The solitude of her current life did make her draw to the sound of other children like a moth to the flame. Who that was more dangerous for was hard to tell.

Anna paused at the entrance of the park running path where the dirt met concrete, allowing her a visual of the playground ahead. So many children...so many adults. Hmm. At least she had just eaten so the hunger was gone. The child vampire crept closer, using the trees between each gap of space to hide halfway behind as she eyed the milling mass. Although her hunger was gone it could not stop her predatory instincts on how she scanned each child, observing just how suitable of a playmate they might be. It was during that careful observation that Anna spotted a rather familiar looking figure...though upside-down it was. Anna left her hiding place to scuttle up the climbing structure on the opposite side of the monkey bars, picking slowly across the wooden roof on her hands and knees before peering over the edge at the hanging figure.

With her head tilted slightly in curiosity, "Pssst.....pssssst...." That was honestly the best she came up with at the moment to get the girl's attention. One cautious glance was cast up to see if any of the adults this time around was watching.
