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.
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.
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.

Vials and glass jars lined the shelves of one wall. His cold, undead fingers draped over a few of them as he meandered slowly around the shop. The vampire lazily picked one or two up to inspect more closely. Darieos scoffed to himself as he read the descriptions of the concoctions. They were simple things, like anti-aging creams and other potions that would delight only the simplest human forms. But given the part of town Sorcha had chosen, the vampire Mayor mused she'd become a hit with the affluent soccer moms and suburban yoga queens in no time.
Dareios had to give the witch credit where credit was due - she'd always been steadfast in her beliefs. If only she'd bend just a little, her talents wouldn't be wasted on such dribble, and she'd be sitting on a small fortune by now. But that same stubborn streak was always something that intrigued Dareios about her. It kept him coming back for more.
He caught sight of her finally and a smirk rose to his lips to match the one on her own. Sorcha looked better than ever, and the vampire found himself falling into her brilliant emerald eyes. The sensation felt warm and familiar. He'd missed it. "Well look who we have here." He said with a wide grin as she wandered over. When she complimented his attire - the usual suit and tie getup - Dareios nodded once before murmuring a simple "Why thank you."
He laughed as she took note of the jar in his hand, and the vampire moved to sheepishly replace it on the shelf. "Just don't tell the tabloids." He quipped back playfully. Dareios' gaze flitted back to the witch shopkeeper and then around the small, but charming space of her business. "It's nice to see you too, Sorcha. You've done well for yourself here." He said. Dareios heaved a great sigh before finally asking the question that tugged at him all along: "So are you back for good this time?" He said, with one dark eyebrow slightly raised.
