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.

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



The vampire was pleased to see the familiar wide grin on Sorcha's face. She looked bright. She looked happy. She deserved to be, he thought now, as his beady eyes took in the details of her small shop. Sorcha seemed to finally have found what she needed. His head dips and his gaze falls to the floor as he chuckles at their back-and-forth banter. It came so natural to the both of them, it seemed, to joke their way back into friendship. In that way, it felt as if no time had passed at all. Sorcha had an old soul, Dareios thought, even if she didn't realize it.

As their conversation takes a somber turn, the vampire stiffs in his position, pushing his hands into the pockets of his trousers and gives the witch his full attention. She stumbles through her explanation at first, but her short words were genuine. It was difficult to talk about one's problems or flaws. But Sorcha was big enough to own up to them. "I forgive you." Dareios said once she'd had her say, taking a step toward her and placing one cold, undead hand on her shoulder. "I'm just glad to see you in such a good place. You seem happy." He explained next. "And you deserve to be."

The vampire mayor would be lying if he said he wasn't curious to know where she'd been all this time. But now hardly seemed like the appropriate time to pry further. And if we're being truthful, Dareios' life had changed quite a bit in the few years his friend was gone. He was a public figure now in town. He had to be much more careful about who he mingled with socially, especially when it came to his personal businesses he still managed to run from his brownstone basement. Sorcha knew a little about it, but not enough to poke holes in the legally questionable parts of it. Nevertheless, this reunion almost felt like it was two strangers meeting for the first time. "So how long until you were going to look me up?" He said with a laugh.
