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.

Walk me home in the dead of night
I can't be alone with all that's on my mind
So say you'll stay with me tonight
'Cause there is so much wrong going on outside

The need for change was always in the back of her mind, ironically one of the few constant things about the slender woman. The desire for something new, something different there was nothing like it. It was more seductive to her than any type of drug or alcohol she had ever tried, and while it made her rather unpredictable perhaps, she enjoyed when life surprised her... well mostly. Things had largely settled down in her life, a routine making itself present in the absence of work since the Ark had sank and with it her employment. All in all it boiled down to the fact that the snow leopard was bored for lack of a better word. She missed the excitement of her job, the fast paced constantly changing atmosphere where one night was never the same as the next. Its absence left her with an itch she just couldn't scratch, but it did increase her desire to wander. The last time she had visited the South she had been fortunate enough to find Sorcha's shop, though a few others had caught her eye in the process and it drew her back to the area today.

Spring was finally starting to emerge, the air noticeably warmer though the breeze that kicked up every so often in the early evening was enough to raise warrant the light jacket she wore over her tank top. Artwork in one of the large shop windows caught her eye, surprise lighting her face when a glance at the sign indicated it was actually a tattoo parlor. The detail and effort in the pieces on display were exquisite and on a whim she opened the door and strayed into the cozy interior of the shop. The framed pieces continued inside, littering the walls to rival any museum gallery and she was engrossed in studying their eye-catching designs. She had one tattoo already, a leopard paw settled amongst magnolias on her left shoulder she had gotten a few years back on another such impulse.

A lot had changed since then, she had been through so much that something permanent to mark that seemed only appropriate though she had no idea what. She didn't doubt whoever owned the shop or worked there would have noticed her entrance by now, and she turned to approach the counter. Tetradore had kept up with her average paycheck despite the Ark sinking so she had a bit of money to burn and this seemed like just the remedy. "Hello?" Her light voice didn't go far in the heavy interior of the shop, but it would be heard no doubt as her fingers drummed softly atop the counters cool surface.
