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. 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.

Ain't life just awful strange

South

a new world hangs outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must be I've fallen awake
I must be



The kid looked nervous. She watched him from behind a skeptical gaze as he fidgeted, quickly swarming to pick up his fallen pencils and divert his stare away from hers. Buffy cocked her head to one side curiously as she watched him, silently enjoying his awkward struggle, but intrigued to find a dark hunter in such a frazzled state. She couldn't recall any hunter she'd ever met before who wasn't unwavering in their stony and stoic demeanor, almost to a fault. Despite their wide range of appearances and life experience, hunters were a dime a dozen. She hardly needed her hunter "spidey sense" to pick one out in a crowd.

But Buffy had never met a new hunter.

Realizing this, she studied the bloke that much harder as he put away his things. She scoffed to herself as it dawned on her. "Wait a minute, wait a minute." as she said her thoughts out loud. She waved her palms in place after his uninspiring answer confirmed her suspicion. "So you're just a baby, aren't you?" A high-pitched gurgle of a giggle left her lips, and one hand went flying to cover her mouth, stifling any more embarrassing sounds from leaking out. But she was still laughing behind it.

After several long seconds, she finally regained her composure, releasing the hold she had over her lips to reveal a bright smile still plastered there. "I'm sorry, well no, I'm not. I've just never met a baby before." There were plenty of dark hunters out there - ancient ones - who would indeed consider her merely a young babe dark hunter, too. She was still living a rather normal human life at just 32 years old, but still. She'd "legit stabbed" more weres and vampires than she could even begin to count at this point.

"I'm Buffy." She finally blurted out, extending her hand for a friendly shake, while the other tried to trap a few pesky strands of her dark hair behind her ear in the passing sea breeze.
