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.

She caught the blush on his cheeks. It was very adorable. When she tried to shrug off his compliment about her being smart, he surprised her by pushing it, saying she was smart and how she could hunt and wasn't fearful in new situations. She tilted her head, considering him for a moment before she spoke. "I'm sure there's plenty of stuff you can do better than me. Surfing, for example." She smirked. "And I wouldn't know about your hunting skills until I see them in action." Her brows lifted in daring. She smiled at the end. "I like you just the way you are, Ashton. You don't have to be any better than you are cause I think you're already the best."
Then she was paddling with the wave, trying her best to stand up. She liked the little moment she had with Ashton. He seemd to be lowering his guard a little more around her, letting her see more of who he really was. She liked the man he was and the more she learned about him, the more she was finding herself hooked. She pushed herself to stand and it was all she could not to whoop and jump up and down on the board when she found herself on her feet. Good thing her footing was so wobbly there was no way she was going to try that anyway. As she turned to tell Ashton about it though, the board was swept out from under her and she fell into the waves. She inhaled some water and by the time Ashton brought her to the surface, she was coughing and hacking.
He told her she did good and warned her not to lose focus. Even though her eyes were watering from all the coughing, she still smirked. "What? And not share my success? Impossible." She nudged his shoulder playfully before pulling the board back to her. "So, again?"
