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.

The vampire Mayor's remarks were fairly simple. He'd been invited to enough of these ceremonies to know what words and sentiments played well for the business crowd, and what fell flat. However, Dareios appreciated the simple challenge of trying to keep his material fresh and inspiring, so he always tried to find a personal flair to add to each one. Today, it seemed he struck the right chord of humor and a sense of resilience. He waved off the clapping crowd as he left the small stage, patting the the business owner on the back as he stiffly shook his hand. "Congratulations, again." He muttered before drifting off to mingle within the throngs of people, both human and supernatural.
The social hour was small, with mediocre refreshments. Dareios' publicist warned him that the press interest was low. Only a handful of reporters hovered among the crowd - one from the free weekly which was basically a glorified a couponer - and a few of the local politics reporters hoping to jab him with policy-related questions. Nevertheless, Dareios told her to make him available for interviews.
Dareios was just starting to strike up a conversation with the CEO of the chamber of commerce in the southside of town when a slight blonde woman edges her way in. Both the Mayor of Sacrosanct and the head of the chamber fall silent as she introduces herself. Dareios stiffens somewhat, and casts the other bow-tie clad man a sympathetic look. "We'll catch up later, Lewis. I promise." But that was a lie. He was silently grateful for the reporter's intrusion. Dareios offers the man an apologetic nod before he walks off, then feigns a smile to the pesky reporter who stands waiting.
"Okay, Mrs. Dabney, you have my attention." He says, digging his white-knuckled, balled fists into his trouser pockets. "What can I do for you?"
