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 places a high focus both upon educating future generations but also on research to help revolutionize the world.

As Ashton slipped into the water and pulled the kickboard near the surface, he listened to Nadya admit that she hadn't told the children that they were going swimming today. He made an "Ah ha!" face and then offered a smile as he looked to Micah and Izzy who didn't look too thrilled that they were here in the pool. "That's quite alright. We'll go slow for them." He remembered what it was like to be a child and be afraid of horses. Living on a farm, horses were a fact of life. If took many bribes and surprise encounters before he was able to brush a horse without crying. After much socialization with horses, he is now able to ride and care for them and even enjoy their company. It would just take time, time he was willing to give the children. Rome wasn't built in a day, they say.

He watched as Nadya brought the children closer to the edge of the pool. Izzy seemed a little more confident than her brother when it came to the water, but Ashton was sure that Micah would come around. It might take Izzy taking the first steps in order for him to see that the water could be a fun place to be instead of something to be feared.

As Izzy sat down, dangling her feet in the water, Ashton offered her a smile. "Good job, Izzy. See? The water feels good on your feet." He offered her another reassuring smile as he looked up to see Micah clinging to Nadya's leg. At her question about the small kickboard, he offered a light chuckle. "I left my surfboard at home. This is called a kickboard. We will use this one today. Maybe another day I'll bring the surfboard." Perhaps if he made a promise to bring out the big board, she might agree to come to a swimming lesson again.

Ashton watched quietly as Nadya came to sit along the poolside with Micah in tow, both putting their feet in the water. "Good job Micah! You're being so brave." Encouragement was what these children needed. They needed to know that every little step was a step in the right direction and everything they did was good. He looked back to Izzy. "Alright, Izzy. Can you show your brother that you can splash me with your feet? Kick hard in the water and see if you can get me all wet." This would hopefully teach the children that the water would not hurt them and that it could be somewhat fun. He hoped to hear lots of laughter and he hoped that Izzy might encourage her brother to join in so they could compete to see who could get him the wettest. He looked to Nadya with a soft glance, a warning that she too might get splashed on.
