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.

Azrael

Only Fools Walk Where Angels Fear To Tread



Were creatures were ridiculous beings. Animals. People. Whatever they were. Part animal, part human, not fully committed to either species. A veritable abomination as far as Azrael was concerned and oh how little Tobias did to improve his opinion of them in those moments in which the Leopard proceeded to circle around him. He could hardly see the spotted cat and yet every instinct within him screamed that the beast was nearby. Somewhere beneath him. Circling within that undergrowth. Azrael's golden eyes scanned the ground below for any sign of that equally golden pelt of those spotted black markings. The forest, for now, remaining decidedly silent and yet he was certain Tobias watched him all the same. Raven's insistence that she was coming was hardly fast enough. Azrael, despite himself, continued to eye the base of the tree he had taken.....a rest in......(because he's not hiding) in some measure of concern that Tobias might decide to scale it. Raven would never forgive him if he shot her damned fool of a husband and yet the idea of taking on a fully grown Amur Leopard with his bare hands was hardly appealing either. It was with a distinctly irritated grumble that Azrael settled further within the treet to wait for Raven to make the trip from wherever the hell it was she was coming from. Tobias, by some mercy, continued to stay hidden. At least until Raven finally appeared.

The sight of the grey and dark wolf was more welcomed then Azrael was content to admit. The Hunter watched from his far safer perch as Tobias at last paced from the trees to brush up agianst his mate. The pair....moving about like animals for several long moments before Raven somehow convinced the Leopard to leave. Azrael's gaze shifted to follow him as he did. The hunter unwilling to glance away from the big cat until he had disappeared into the distance. How Raven and tetradore....controlled him Azrae was sure he might never know. Nor did he suppose he found he truly cared so long as Tobias stayed away and kept his claws entirely to himself. Even so- the Leopard had never been this protective before. Especially not away from that hulking ton of steel they call a home. Hmm, maybe the other man was simply...on edge living within the forest. Azrael was nearly assured he would be the same if the situation was reversed and yet still, Tobias had seemed more...persistent then he usually was.

Those thoughts, for now, were cast readily aside as Raven called up to him. Azrael afforded the forest below a final glance before a burst of speed abruptly saw the Hunter land down beside his canine company. Raven, in the least looked....well. Maybe all the fresh air and forest had done her some good. That sudden question of Serafina however prompted a sudden shake of the elder man's head.

"Sera's fine. Im taking her to Dubai as soon as these restrictions on international travel are lifted."

Why he shared the details of his and Sera's planned holiday he hardly knew and yet in some ways he had come to almost...enjoy Raven's company and those occasional, small chats they had in between their work. The blond man's shoulders lifted into a shrug of sorts as if he hardly understood why he had shared those details himself before Raven suggested Tobias and herself hardly had too many visitors up here. The very idea of it coxed one eye to arch upwards.

"Does that really surprise you? It's literally in the middle of fucking nowhere. I've been hiking for hours. How the hell do you get to town when you need to? You don't....go like that do you?"

His head nodded toward Raven then in a vague gesture toward her canine form. Raven, surely, did not run into town as a dog did she? Then again he'd surely have had reports of it by now if she did. Even all the way out here in the fucking Bermuda Triangle or whever they were. His head shook lightly as if to dismiss the thought, his golden gaze turned down to his companion once more.

"I came looking for you. Im attending an...event tonight and I thought you might....be useful....attending and providing a Were perspective. I also don't hate your company. I suppose."

Kindness was perhaps not his....strong suit. Azrael, even now, struggling with these compliments. The mans decidedly gruff nature near painfully evident.

"Why is Tobias being so....territorial?"
