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 snorted at his words and shook her head. "Hardly. I didn't want to lead them. I just didn't want to live off of day old carcasses anymore." She'd never wanted the lead. She left all that to Caesar. He, of course, didn't let her just blend in with the others. She was stronger than the rest and he respected that so he wanted her by his side. But when she wouldn't give him the heirs he wanted, he had to go elsewhere, anyway. Still, none of the other females would dare challenge her to rise in rank so she stayed at the top, anyway. He seemed so surprised that she'd managed to live with actual coyotes all that time. It wasn't so hard before she knew she really was different than them. Before finding Sacrosanct and the other Were's that talked to her, she never would have had a clue that she wasn't just a smarter than average coyote.
He pointed out that it was pretty recent and she looked away for a minute with a short sigh. "Yeah, I guess you could say that." She could still remember the look of betrayal on Caesar's face when he saw her again in the forest after joining Frost's pack. He had looked so hurt. She was sure the pack had been looking for her before that, or even just him. And then he had the pack chase her, just to show her how unwelcome she was always going to be now. At his sudden question of whether she'd gotten to experience everything yet, she couldn't help but smirk and shrug. "Probably not. I don't feel like it, anyway. Sex, yeah that's fun. Drugs don't look fun, though. People act dumb afterwards." She scowled, her nose scrunching up as she remembered that night with Henry.
Her brow arched up. "Rock n Roll? Now this, I need to know more about. Sounds fun." She pricked her ears and wagged her tail, fully intrigued. As they talked about his looks, she couldn't help but roll her eyes as he called himself attractive. Then he looked her over and she felt her ears flick back a little in uncertainty as he said he'd like to see her body. She snorted again. "Food, first. This body ain't going nowhere but my stomach's already packing it's bags if I don't fill it soon." She teased. She didn't understand his reaction when she told him to take out the piglets. She was doing the hard part, after all, keeping the boar distracted while he charged and threw his tusks at her. She could be gouged, and yet the jackal had the nerve to look offended?
But food was food. At this point, she didn't care if it was cooked or not. She had to get in one last nip though, before taking off past Marcelo. When he caught on, she yipped her own laughter as he tore off after her with the boar in hot pursuit. Sure, they were definitely out last it for stamina. Once the boar was sure the other pigs were out of danger, he would turn back. At his sudden instruction to turn left, she slowed, her ears flicking as she waited for him to choose a direction. She didn't want to just admit she didn't know her left from her right. That would be embarrassing, right? She waited to judge which side he was leaning toward then she'd turn like she knew all along what she was doing. As they made it to the edge of the park, she slowed down, shaking out her coat as she panted. At his comment, she yipped her agreement before taking a seat.
"So, I guess we're two-legging it from here." She glanced toward the city, knowing there would be people out milling around in the park, even at this hour. Good thing, she kept clothes stashes around the trees out here. Waiting for his response, she leaned forward and called on her shift. Soon enough, her face was shortening, her bones cracking and shifting as she lengthened until she stood nude before him. Not thinking twice about it, she smirked before walking over to a nearby tree like she walked through here every day in the nude. She knew he was looking. She bent over to get her bag, reaching in to grab her change of clothes before she took her sweet time shimmying into some short shorts and throwing on a red bra and a black t-shirt. Then she threw down some flip flops to slip her feet into and glanced at Marcelo. "Well? The food won't be there forever, you know."
