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.

be careful making wishes in the dark

It had been too long. Too long since Xavier Blackthorne had settled into a city and gorged himself on the vast energies within. After over two centuries, he had long since seen all the world wonders that he desired to see. He had watched as the world went from daily drudgery and aristocracy to a wealth of technology. Equality. Well, as much equality as could be, but the mortals that decried their predicaments did not realize just how good they had it. How in two centuries of life their world had changed. They were mayflys compared to him, blooming and withering between blinks, their cries an echo in the vastness of his power. As time passed their intelligence grew but their strength fell. Weaklings. How easy it was to prey upon the world when one was a monster.

Faerie, monster, semantics.

He smelled the rich energies around him. Their auras were bright among the dull stars of the mortals that scattered like roaches, back and forth, building and dying and breathing. For a time, Thorne merely leaned against a cool brick wall amid the pandemonium of city life and watched. Oh, the mortals were lovely still, with the fire of hope in their eyes. Even the ones who hunched in despair gave him a particular sort of pleasure. He could taste it. What would it take to push them to that very limit? A mere touch of an elbow of a lovely woman, a mere drink of the energy of her life, and she stumbled away, blinking in the light rainfall blearily. Wearied, confused.

Her energy was but a drop in the bucket that he could consume; mortals were so fragile. No, he waited for better prey.

Xavier was a patient sort, settling back with his leather jacket hunched around his neck, enjoying the way his dark hair plasters to his alabaster skin. The coolness of it amid a slight breeze. There - he senses her. A bright beacon of energy and power embroiled in the mesh of the crowd. She failry shines among them with her bright hair, flashing blue eyes. Even from across the busy street he can see each detail, his plush lips peeling back into a satisfied grin as he pushes away from the wall.

Then begins the prowling. He moves with a sleek gait of a predator, easing between bodies instinctively, winking at the mortal women who pause to give him an appraising eye. It is not only their energy he enjoys, but he doesn't have time for that yet. Instead, he crosses the street among the crowds, falling back so that he can follow behind her. A witch, powerful enough to stand out.

As he reaches a corner his steps quicken until he is right behind her, a hand reaching out, intending to touch her bare forearm. A swipe, just a swipe, one that will yank some of that luscious power into him....
