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.

It's not the long walk home that will change this heart, but the welcome I receive after the restart.



The vampire mayor stared down at the petite blonde reporter with one dark eyebrow raised. She was certainly a persistent thing, which he mused one would have to be, given her choice of job. Dareios breathed a heavy sigh and settled stiffly into a somewhat more relaxed position, allowing one elbow to lean against a tall table that held a plethora of empty and half-drunken glasses. He briefly fiddles with the blood-red bow tie at his neck, but then stuffs his undead hands back into his trouser pockets.

Only a few minutes go by before Dareios' publicist, a tall and lean vampire woman named Gabrielle, starts walking fiercely in their direction. She rarely let Dareios be interviewed without her watchful presence, but the vampire mayor waved her off quickly with the shrug off his shoulders. Mrs. Dabney was just a "freelancer". He hardly felt the need of a handler for what was bound to be just a puff piece.

He nodded politely when she remarked briefly on the ceremony. "Yes, but I can hardly take any credit. The City has been working diligently with the chambers and other community partners to really elevate the minority of supernaturals in town." He said proudly. But the blonde was quick to bait and switch. Her real question wasn't about the small business tax breaks Dareios had helped shepherd along, or the equity measures he'd put in place. He stood tall at the mention of a "serial killer," wiping his elbow off the table. Dareios' beady stare then bounced around the tables in their immediate area, hoping no one heard the words that just spewed from this reporter's mouth.

He feigned a smile then, just to hide the grimace he so badly wished to show instead. "What a ridiculous question." He scoffed, looking around again through the crowd. "If you'd paid attention Mrs. Dabney, you'd know that crime in Sacrosanct is down 18 percent over the last three years, and that's mostly due to measures I've put in place to protect the residents in this town who don't conform to the way you live and act as a human."

He stared hard at her now, gritting his teeth as he did so. "I'm not the Police Chief. If you have questions about a specific case, my suggestion to you would be to start there."
