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.

There's no saving me.
I've become a shell of the man I was. Only time will tell if I'm strong enough.


The black Bugatti practically purred beneath his hand as Tetradore directed the sports car across those dirt and gravel roads. He nibbled absent-mindedly upon one of the sweets Mira had offered him, that last bite nestled within his free hand as they traveled further from the city and closer towards that isolated cabin. His brow was furrowed ever so slightly, his thoughts entirely focused upon that search for a new Ark that he'd already begun. The pack, after all, could hardly remain as fractured as it was forever. They belonged together, the Alpha entirely incapable of being with them all during the full moon, as was his responsibility, when they were spread so thin. A soft breath left Tetradore's lips, those obligations weighing heavily upon his shoulders though he hardly muttered a word of them. Mira, after all, was well aware of all that had occupied the Were-King of late. Their newfound living arrangements combined with their new relationship status had prompted Mira's involvement in his affairs far more than she had ever been before.

The Were-King popped the last of the cookie into his mouth, the man briefly wiping his hand upon his jeans to keep any cookie grease from transferring from his fingers to the luxurious leather-wrapped steering wheel. He'd only just swallowed that last bite before uttering their arrival to the cabin, the green Ford coming into their view but not moments later. The large cabin all but loomed in front of them, it's exterior alone surely speaking of the decadence that the inside must hold. He led his sportscar into the empty place alongside the Ford, only to place the car in park and turn off the vehicle. Without the roar of the Bugatti's engine, there was a certain sort of...silence that seemed to pervade, what with the forest pressing in around them. It was the sound of Mira's voice that drew the Alpha from his thoughts, the emerald of his irises turned towards her as she teased him. A soft snort left his nose as he glanced back at the magnificent home. "What else would you call it?" He inquired as they opened the car doors, stepping out and into the comfortable coolness of the early evening. He closed the door behind him, only to make his way around the front of the vehicle, his hand pressing the lock button on the keyfob. It was, admittedly, an action done out of habit than anything else. After all, he doubted anyone would come out here to steal the luxurious vehicle.

The gentle brush of Mira's shoulder against his own hardly went unnoticed, however, Tetradore allowing his fingers to interlace with her own. That affection he'd once so withheld came...freer now, to an extent. The Were-King still remained as aloof as he tended to be within the city limits of Sacrosanct and yet...out here...it was highly unlikely that their genteel touches would go noticed. Mira's voice once again drew his attention, her idle comment of visiting the cabin alone was one he'd hardly considered, and yet...it was hardly impossible. "After we get the new Ark." He responded, his head bobbing in vague agreement. After all, it was unlikely Tobias and Raven would need the home after Tetradore had finished securing a new place for the pack - at least, not for a while, if things continued to go well. He pushed the possibility of those somber thoughts away from the forefront of his mind, the Alpha entirely missing that insinuation of why they might enjoy the cabin completely to themselves. A small glimpse of confusion crossed his features as Mira's brow rose at him, her laughter only further cementing that bafflement. "Wait...what?" He inquired as Mira leaned forward to place a kiss upon his cheek, her features still beaming, though why Tetradore hadn't the slightest notion. His head shook ever so slightly at the woman as he led her up the steps and onto the porch of the cabin.

Tetradore released Mira's hand, letting the girl knock on the solid wood door as he leaned upon the stone pillar nearby. A soft yawn drifted over his lips, his gaze briefly deviating towards the soon to be setting sun. How well he could feel the impending arrival of the moon. The panther beneath his skin entirely ready for that run through the woods. That silence from the other side of the door, however, prompted a frown from Tetradore's features as Mira' called out, her fingers reaching for the locked door handle. His brow furrowed before Tetradore reached into his pocket, pulling out the keys attached to the vehicle's fob. Though it might have seemed...controlling that Tetradore had kept a key for himself, there were times when it came in handy. He reached for the doorknob, sliding his key into the lock only to unlock it. He pressed his hand against the door, letting it silently glide inwards as his gaze turned towards Mira, gesturing lightly for her to entire before he followed suit.

This is my last goodbye
