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.

His panther still felt foreign, like a new pair of shoes that wasn't fully broken in. Everyone said it would get better in time. Tetradore assured him that when he and his panther finally became one, it would feel like a perfect fit. Part of the issues was Henry's inability, no his choice, to not completely give in. He still fought, still tried to control the beast within him instead of just being one with it. Henry didn't trust his panther and his panther certainly didn't trust him. It was a relationship, the two of them still working out the kinks and still working at creating a partnership with one another. It would take time but already Henry had made good strides.

His attention was fully on Nadya, feeling the way her body brushed against his own in greeting. He nestled his head against her, extending the same sort of greeting. Briefly he wondered what Tet would say when he came home smelling like his sister. The fact that he was shifting with another pack might piss the man off. But there as a part of him that simply didn't care.

As she took off into the forest, he pounced forward, his limbs working in tandem trying to keep up with her pace. Thankfully she slowed down a little bit when she knew he was following close behind her. He heard her thoughts deep within his mind, a sensation that he was still not used to. Talking in this sense still felt foreign, but he supposed it was a fact of life. "My grandfather taught me to fly fish when I was younger, but I haven't been fishing since I was a boy." Once he was older, he got sucked into the wrong crowd. He chose drugs and alcohol over fishing. When his grandfather died, there was no motivation to fish so he never went.

As they came upon the stream, Henry was thankful that she was no longer producing the same pheromones as before. His thoughts were cloudy and unsure. At least now he felt like he could make sense of his surroundings. He moved to the edge of the bank, looking down at the swift moving water. He could see the bass and trout swimming in the stream. She seemed to understand the thoughts in his head before he could even think of them. Hunting had always been a turn off to him. Not so much because of the taste of blood, but more about his fear of losing control. He didn't want his panther to taste the hunt and then want more. "Unfortunately, I'm accustomed to the taste of blood." There had been so much blood when he had attacked Sterling. So much blood. His body had been covered in it, his gums were stained red. Yes, he knew the taste of blood - well, not so much himself but his panther sure did. The memories came flooding back and it had to shake his head to find clarity again.

As Nadya sat herself down on the edge of the bank, she asked him if he was ready. He sighed. "Not really, but I have a feeling you're not taking no for an answer today." She was hellbent on teaching him to hunt and he was hellbent on resisting. What a pair they were. "Will your brother be mad that it's not him teaching me to hunt?" knowing Tet, he probably wouldn't be happy. Then again, the man was probably so fucking tired of Henry's resistance. He hated being a disappointment to everyone, but he just wasn't sure of himself anymore.
