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.

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.

Zachary was always a delight to deal with. His extensive excitement enough to make even the most patient of people walk right to the edge and leap off it. He had always been a playful prankster - the Were hardly taking anything seriously - though it was in his nature in his defense. It was much easier to be playful in his animal form, Zach was less likely to break something or someone when he was roaming with his pod. Plus his incessant talking would be translated into sounds rather than words. Though, he didn't realize how much he spoke when he was in human form - it was like his mouth opened and it never shut. He couldn't help his sociable side of him, it was a key part of who he was - it was in his bones, his being.

Arms folded across his chest, goosebumps lingering on his body at the chill of the water, he can't help but frown momentarily as this stranger continues to call him Flipper. Sniffing at him, he turns his head in a pointed way, "Fine, you can call me Flipper," he says rather offendedly, "But I'm still not a dolphin, plus dolphins are mammals not fish," he mutters, though he had to admit he was rather pleased with himself he managed to correct the BoatMan. HAH. BoatMan. "And for your information, dolphins are fun to hang out with! Well, until you piss them off anyways. They can be scary when they are angry," Zachary states, his face draining of color at a memory. Waving it off quickly, his usually grin spreads across his lips, eyes lighting up with excitement. "You built this?!" How easily impressed the man was. "I've never built anything in my life, that's pretty awesome," his eyes wide as he takes the boat in, in a new light.

"No worries, I won't touch it again. Promise," he gives the stranger a dramatic salute before diving down, down, down. The shift almost instantaneous before he is swimming rapidly back to the surface, his massive body breaching the water and launching skyward before he hits the ocean with a resounding slap. Water sprays into the chilly air as Zachary quickly shifts once more, a sheepish grin on his face as he looks at the now drenched man and his terribly scary dog. Laughing, he is abruptly cut off by the comment this stranger is making - his own mood going down hill as his face falls. Unfolding his arms, he splashes at the water, almost like a petulant child, "They didn't discard me, they just... didn't wait," he frowns at the churning sea. As the man continues on with his harsh words, Zachary's mood continues to fall as a mopey expression takes over his features. Sighing, "I figured, my guess is I'm going to have to wait until next year before they come back around," he mutters a touch quietly.

The Were Orca is surprised at the inquiry, his head snapping up as he watches the man a bit curiously. "Well, if you really want to know..." he pauses just long enough to catch his breath before launching into his story. "This is the first year our pod has come to these waters, we needed to hunt but the leader of our pod, also known as a pilot if you were wondering, didn't want to stop so close to the city. I convinced him I would catch up later and decided to see if I could find food. WELL, I found a seal and it turned out she was also a were, and I almost ATE HER. It was a very traumatizing experience all around. So I decided to hangout for a bit, then a storm hit and now that I'm back in the water I'm having trouble tracking them. If I let go of my human emotions long enough I could probably track them but its sooooo hard to go full predator," he says animatedly, his hands moving while he chats, "The only time I can let go of all human emotions is when I'm hunting but now I'm too paranoid that I've committed cannibalism considering I almost ate a girl. So, I'm pretty much stuck her homeless for the next year," he grins, despite the fact he had announced he was stuck in a city he knew nothing about, plus - he needed actual clothes if he wanted to wander in the city.

"So what's your story? What's your name? I'm Zach - but most people call me Willy," he points at himself rather proudly, convinced he had just made a friend.
