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.

South



Tonight the moon aches. He feels in in the spaces about his soul, where night tumbles on, endlessly. Tenebrae feels the twinge of it, as if there is twine between him and the moon as she slips and sets herself to fall.

He keeps away from the busy streets, where laughter and music are a symphony. Even from here, where the city is a landscape of lights and colour, he can hear the chatter of the city. He can hear the roar of an engine, the squealing clack of an escaping train.

He stops by the lake, swans drift like splashes of white. Beneath the magic of the midnight moon the water turns quicksilver bright. It all seems quiet here, except for the laughter of those gathered. A bonfire crackles merrily in the center of the gathered group. Ten does not turn to look, but he hears the way it hisses as he steps closer, closer to the water's edge.

The water pushes up to meet him as he crouches down upon the bank. Reaching out across the surface, the lake seems to sing a siren song. But it is hushed, just a whisper that slips like a swansong through his ears. The water is cold when he dips his fingers in, still it holds the vestiges of frigid winter nights.

He looks up into the space between the stars, where endless black draws him up, up, up. The stars are plentiful tonight and the smoke from the fire rises to meet them. Still the gathering laugh and the small meadow smells of alcohol and midnight merriment.

Shadows breathe out beneath his fingers, spreading across the silver surface of the lake. It falls into satin darkness and the moonlight groans. Rising, the Hunter shucks off his leather coat, peeling his shirt off over his head, tonight was too good to waste not swimming. Alcohol hums in his veins and his eyes glow silver-bright, lit by the moon he swallows down with a smile.
