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 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.

lost souls and reverie

The sun was setting as she strolled down the quiet streets. Sometimes they were teeming with people, families, especially on weekends when the hosted music festivals or the like, but on a weekday such as this it was nearly abandoned. A school night of course, but that left the cat to play. Life had been quiet recently, in the proverbial wake of the Ark sinking she did not have work to fill her nights, though Tetradore was ensuring she still got paid her average wages. She appreciated his help, his acceptance into the pack he considered family, but it didn't stop her feeling a bit like she was taking advantage. The leopard had always worked her way through life since she abandoned the future her family had planned out for her. From the moment she was old enough to understand that her life was already written in their history books she had railed against it until she had finally ran. Perhaps that was the source of her trepidation regarding what seemed a hand out, where she was from something was never given for nothing in return. She knew Tetra did not view it as such but the fact remained.

All this free time did, however, give her ample time to enjoy hobbies that she previously did not have time for. One of which was rummaging through some local thrift and antique stores for inexpensive treasures that someone else no longer valued. One person's trash and all that jazz. Her typical work hours had her sleeping during the times most places were open for business, the price of being a bartender, and so she could take advantage of this at least. She was on her way to a new shop she had heard of and had invited her temporary roommate Alexis, but it seemed she had other plans. What Carolina did not expect however was to catch the trace of a familiar scent, one she had not come across in quite some time.

Curiosity grabbed at her, some adages were founded in truth you see, and she found herself changing course. She headed down a side road off main street, the scent beginning to layer thickly telling her she was on the right track and that her target travelled this path rather often. So interesting, she mused as she finally came to a halt in front of an eclectic shop that could only be the heart of the trail she followed. She opened the door, stepping into the dimly lit store teeming in shelves and heady scents all of which carried the undertone of the one she had originally recognized. "Sorcha?" Her voice echoing gently in the quiet interior, though she did not doubt the shop owner would have been alerted to a new patrons entrance into her store. While her nose had never led her wrong before, she was excited at hopefully reconnecting with an old friend.
