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.

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.

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 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.
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.
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 weight of the newly turned Hunter's emerald irises fell upon the lanky woman in front of him, her muttered words prompted a small, dismissive shrug from his shoulders. For a moment, the artist's gaze turned away from her as he lifted his messenger bag from the bench, the man standing in the process. He hoisted the bag to his shoulder where it belonged, his gaze deviating from his task only as her voice attempted, yet again, to apologize. "It's fine," Alistair responded quite simply, hardly anticipating the woman to continue with her friendly efforts. Her introduction, however, was wholly intriguing - the artist left staring at her almost curiously as he contemplated the seemingly young woman's age. With Adrien's vague explanation of his lack of mortality and the seemingly expansive life span before him, Alistair found himself inquisitive if she was named after that 90's hit or if it, in turn, was named after her. His probing inquiry, however, was rewarded with little more than a roll of those chocolate brown eyes, that grimace far more telling that it was clearly a touchy topic.
A soft sound reverberated in the back of his throat though Alistair chose not to chase the topic any further. Rather, the Artist offered his fellow hunter his own name, their hands briefly meeting in a firm shake. Alistair hardly anticipated those well wishes he was offered and yet, with his own blatant inexperience, it was clear he certainly needed luck on his side. Nevertheless, he offered her some vague attempt at a smile, "Thanks." He responded quite simply, that salute prompting an almost bemused raise of his brow, one that was accompanied by a soft snort. Her inquiry of a beer however, was one that Alistair certainly wasn't going to pass up. After all, it surely was a good thing to make acquaintances with others of his kind in the city, wasn't it? "Yeah, okay. Cull and Pistol or...you have another haunt?" He inquired, gesturing loosely towards the direction he knew the bar in question to be and yet, Alistair was hardly opposed to venturing outside of his comfort zone either.
