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.

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

She rocked softly on her heels as she waited, the muffled sounds of only one voice coming from the dark reaches of the hallway that stretched behind the shops front desk. It was only seconds later that the projectile that had used to be a phone came hurtling towards her. "What the fuck?!" the clipped words barely made it out of her mouth as she ducked to one side, thankful for better than average reflexes she possessed. Her hazel eyes lit with a fire as she turned from the pieces of shattered technology to the dark figure that stalked towards her. It was the last thing that she had expected walking into the artists domain. The lame excuse he offers gaining him nothing more than an arched brow as she rights herself and watches incredulously as he gathers what remained of his cellphone. It was unreal, was all she could think as she waited with thinly veiled incredulousness. Who just went around throwing perfectly good phones at people, or walls even if she hadn't been the intended target.

"Bad day?" She questions him tersely, ignoring his query for a moment and assuming she had at least a bit of a right to know why she had been placed in the line of fire. Not that she wasn't familiar with emotional outbreaks, her kind were prone to being... passionate but it didn't give them the green card to go around chucking things around all willy-nilly. She waited with her slender hands splayed across her wide, jeaned hips for some sort of explanation though not expecting him to reveal his life story at the drop of, well, a cellphone.

Shifting her weight she ran a hand through her wavy, blond hair before sighing lightly. "I saw your work through the window and it inspired me." She savors the word a bit, trying to enunciate exactly what had come over her as she perused the work on the walls. "I'd like to pick your mind about getting a piece done." There is question in her tone, having no idea of what she actually wanted to get done. She could appreciate art, knew what meant a lot to her, but this was not something she had been thinking of until just this moment and it left the world open to possibility. That thought brought a simper to her pink lips as she appraised the rugged man before her. Life could be unpredictable, had tossed her about a time or two, but she was still standing and despite the prickle she felt of the scar that started at the base of her neck she would take what came next. She needed something exciting in her life right about now and she wasn't above paying for it.
