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.

the truth will set you free...
but first it will make you miserable



A normal person might feel a bit embarrassed by cutting into a conversation. A normal person might apologize for it, but Issy was not a normal person. Questions were in her blood. They couldn't be stopped and they couldn't wait. Well, technically they could, but she had already waited so long for this charade to start and end. Politics were a field that bored her to tears and she had never been one to enjoy a good speech. Dareios was adept at it, flashing his charming smile around, saying entertaining tidbits that made everyone titter, and Isadore had to admire the fact that he was a smooth talker. But weren't all politicians? It was practically a requirement of the job. Besides, she thinks a bit sourly, it was unfair really. He had so long to learn and practice.

Casting aside that rather tasteless thought, she makes her way closer, bursting out and watching as Dareios offers the CEO a sympathetic smile. Bright blue eyes narrow for a moment on Lewis, trying to pinpoint why that name sounded so familiar. Had he been part of some scandal in recent years? Before she could deduce what it was, Dareios offers his politician smile, turning his attention to her, and she turns her own vibrant attention back to him. Isadore was like a hawk, honed in on prey, though part of her felt a slight bit nervous to be interviewing a vampire. Ha, the irony of that statement was not lost on her, and she smirks just a slight bit to herself, dipping her head quickly to hide it before pulling out a pen and pad.

"Nice ceremony you put on here. Good publicity and good for commerce," she says smoothly, face now turned back up towards his. "However, I've been investigating and researching a crime scene on the west side of town. Have you heard anything about the body? It is a suspected that the perpetrator was a vampire. Do you have any statement you'd like to make about that or about the safety of the west side?" She pauses for only a breath, a dog with a bone, intense eyes on him. "From my research, another body in similar condition was found a month ago in a city nearby. What are your thoughts on a serial killer running loose?"

The last bit was added because she wanted to see how he would react. After all, they were surrounded by other people, and here she was hinting there might be a vampire on the lose to the mayor who was one. It was a risky move, but calculated in that she felt safe enough to ask with all the other people milling nearby. Besides, the facts were the facts...
