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.

Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium

The Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (PDZA) is an award-winning combined zoo and aquarium located within the Southern Part of Sacrosanct. Situated on 92 acres in Sacrosanct's Hyde Park, the zoo and aquarium are home to over 9,000 specimens representing 367 animal species. Point Defiance is also widely known for its conversation efforts regarding the breed and release program of Red Wolves.

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.

Raylin Chike


That was excitement coursing through her bones, her pink hair ruffling in the breeze as she stands on the beach, a dry suit clinging to her form. Her feet stuffed into boots made for surfing, cheeks lightly pink from the wind coursing off the waves. She had been waiting all winter to get back onto the ocean! Sure, it wasn't the most perfect weather for surfing but the dry suit would keep her warmish. Yet - it hardly mattered to Ray. She was nothing more than excited child waking up on Christmas morning, that feeling always tended to live within her. It didn't take much to please the woman and even the light drizzle of rain couldn't sour her mood. Gripping that board under her arm fiercely, she took a running start into the ocean. It doesn't take her long to paddle out, the freezing waters washing over her. She had to admit, it made her lose some breath - it was frigid. Within minutes, she's standing on her board and dropping down into the wave - a grin plastered across her face.

Raylin stays there all day long - breaking for a snack and to rehydrate and by the time she's finished, her body is exhausted though those adrenaline endorphins course through her veins. Her brain buzzes with excitement as she uses the community lockers and swiftly changes out of her suit and wraps her hair in a towel. The sun was beginning to set and the locker room was veritably empty, though it was normal. No one in their right mind would come to a beach while a continuous rained drizzled across the city. Though, to Ray - it was perfect. She didn't have to battle anyone for space! Still grinning, she slips her legs into a dark pair of jeans, stuffing her feet into warm boots and slipping on a rain jacket. She opts out of her beanie, simply because her hair would soak through it in a matter of minutes. Throwing her bag across her shoulder she steps outside into the fading light, and tucking her board beneath her arm.

She stands there, just on the pavement for a moment longer before setting her things against the wall. Another spur of the moment decision as she digs through her bag and retrieves a small flask - the breeze finally spearing through her body and a chill snaking down her spine. She wasn't quite ready to return home and she was certain it was far too late to pay Brennan and Barney a visit. She didn't think they would mind but decided against it. Instead, she leaves behind her things and strolls back out onto the sand, carefully walking across it so as to not get sand in her boots. Plopping, rather ungracefully down - she sighs and unscrews the cap off her flask. Taking one long drag - she inhales at the wrong moment and begins coughing rather frantically. Pounding a fist against her chest, she catches her breath finally and reseals the bottle before settling it into the sand next to her. Throwing her hands behind her, she slouches in a weary manner - exhaustion finally catching up to her as she watches the last of the sun die away.
