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.

i'm not ashamed of my scars, i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.

With a sad sigh, she rolled over to sit upright on the couch for a moment, raising her arms to stretch and yawn. The soothing sound of the rain could no longer lull her back to sleep. There was an annoying sharp shrill that woke up her. Tucking some of her golden-curls behind her ear, she slowly turned her head to the small table where her phone sat. With the screen on the phone lit up, she was surprised to see the text read four missed phone calls. Furrowing her eyebrows, she picked the phone up, pressing on the screen to see that the 4 missed calls came from Azrael. What in the world? Why would he of all people call her multiple times? Maybe it was about Serafina? Leaving Sacrosanct just never felt right to her. The one time the pack needed to stick together they were split apart, by their own Alpha. And after learning Serafina had a stalker, well, needless to say, Raven didn't feel comfortable with the witch being all alone in the city. Could Azrael help her? Of course, but neither she or the witch told the Dark Hunter about it. Worried that it might be about her she was about to press return call until she heard the familiar musical tone go off. Pressing the green button and then the speaker icon she stared at the phone as she heard the familiar voice that could only belong to the irritable Dark Hunter. With a roll of her own eyes, she responded quite gently, but with a matter-of-fact tone.


"Well, what did you expect? This is our territory; he's going to be protective."


For a Dark Hunter he seemed quite ridiculous at times. If he hunted down their kind then he ought to know the basics. After promising him she was on her way to rescue...err keep Tobias away from him, she got off the couch, and hung up, and shoved the phone into her back pocket. After weeks of dealing with the nausea she was finally able to rest and sleep a little bit more than usual. Enjoying a nap during a rainy afternoon was perfect. Opening and shutting the front door she stood on the porch looking out in the woods. Closing her eyes, she allowed that shift to take over. Landing on four paws, she stretched and yawned again, shaking her head to remove any tiredness she felt. Reopening her eyes, she began to trot off the porch headed towards the woods, ignoring the squishy sensation of her paws pressing into the mud. Following the pulsating thread between herself and her mate she wandered through the tall trees and eventually found exactly what she was looking for. Craning her head upwards she could see, a very odd sight, the Dark Hunter crouching on a limb in a very tall tree. Chuckling to herself she looked around for her spotted companion, sensing him circling closer. When he finally decided to reveal himself, she shook her head, bemused as he sauntered on over towards her. When he got closer, she gave him a gentle nuzzle, attempting to calm him down.


"Tobias, Azrael doesn't mean us any harm, you know this. Why don't you go inside and get warm? I'll deal with him."


As she leaned into him, Raven couldn't tell if he was purring or growling. Raven understood that these woods and the cabin was theirs and yet Azrael wasn't going to take this place from them. Sure, he was trespassing, but that was okay. The Dark Hunter was a...friend...ally...associate? Whatever he was, he wasn't an enemy and so there was no need for him to growl. Playfully she nipped above his ears encouraging him to settle down. Once he was done growling, she wagged her tail and licked the side of his face, pleased that he was returning back to normal. Lifting her in the direction of their cabin she silently told him to head to their home. Raven had no idea how long he had been outside in the rain, but she knew it would be best if he gets inside and enjoy the warmth. The she-wolf doubted Azrael would want to stick around any longer than he needed to. A thunderstorm would roll in later tonight. Perhaps they could curl up together and enjoy some smores and hot chocolate. Once Tobias started to leave, she would turn her attention back up to the treed Dark Hunter, tilting her head to the side she called up to him.


"What are you doing all the way up here Azrael We don't...we don't get visitors here. Is it Sera, is she okay?"


It was odd that he came up here in the first place. No one really came up to see them. In fact, the only other person that could pinpoint their exact location was Tetradore, and she doubted their Alpha would have told Azrael where they were.
