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.

Raven Cain


With Tobias gone, she found it quite amusing to see the Dark Hunter still perched high in his tree. Why he thought he could be safe in a tree baffled her. Her husband was part feline, and he had the capability of climbing up a tree to snatch him. The only way Azrael would be safe from her husband, was if he stayed on an island, surrounded by water...and sharks for additional security. Her husband's uncanny skill of finding anyone anywhere, Azrael would always be vulnerable. Now that Azrael was out of his tree, she listened as he explained why he was taking her witch out of the country. It was sweet in a way to see that familiar simper creep on his face as he spoke about his own love. Seeing him shrug his shoulders and answer, she nodded quietly in agreement. Serafina did like shopping. It was a shame that his kind demeanor switched as he irritably complained about her not living near Sacrosanct. It wasn't their fault that they now lived in the woods. Tetradore had this cabin for them, and she was rather grateful to have a very nice place to stay. Although the seclusion was a bit painful. It was hard being so far away from her chosen family and friends. The mention that he didn't hate her company was answered with a very happy tail wag.

Whenever she and her witch would spend time together, Raven was always happy to hear how Serafina made her boyfriend uncomfortable. Of course, Serafina did it out of love and a bit of humor. Why couldn't she do the same thing? Making her approach, she leaned into his leg, slowly brushing up against him and nuzzling him gently. When she inhaled his scent, she could detect his distress, finding it oddly satisfying. Why would he be uncomfortable with this? How many times had he been around her? After Frost attacked her, he came into her bedroom and touched her. When they had to rescue Serafina, he had to carry her as they sped across town. Hell, there was a moment when he had to ride on her back. So, why in the world would he still be uncomfortable with her presence? Gently she pressed her cold nose against his hand and licked it. Innocently she looked up at him with her tail wagging happily behind her as she replied.

"Making you uncomfortable."

When she felt his leg shift, she slowly backed away, allowing him his space once more. When he asked about her companion, she tilted her dial to the side. Was it really that obvious that Tobias was acting differently? Azrael was a friend. It wasn't like she could hide from him her pregnancy. Bashfully she told him the good news, but she wasn't expecting the man to act surprised at the very idea that Tobias could get her pregnant in the first place. Without hesitation, she let out a deep snarl as her dark form started to shake. The fur on the back of her neck bristled, her lips pulled back to reveal her very sharp teeth, her ears flatten against her skull. Why is it that everyone always acted as if her mate wasn't capable of doing anything. He was different, sure, and yet deserved to be treated with dignity and respect. Raven was tired of everyone treating him poorly, or speaking ill about him. Her tolerance for this treatment on her husband by others no longer existed. After all this time, she thought Azrael would let go of his negative opinion on her mate. Standing in agitation, her voice was firm but calm, as she began to set him straight.

"Tobias is my mate, my husband, my best friend. Everything good that's ever happened to me all started when he entered my life. He is quite capable of many things, just like any normal man. He has a condition Azrael, and although he may not seem all there, I can assure you...he is. Do not insult him, ever again. I will not tolerate it from you, or anyone else."

Assured that Azrael got the message she took a deep breath and stopped her growling. Shaking her head her dark black and grey fur settled down and the wolf returned to her relaxed state. With a wag of her tail, she was pleased to hear his congratulations.

"Thank you, we're both very excited. I'm eager to tell Serafina, my pack, and other friends the good news!"

One day she and her mate would travel to the city and spend some time there. It would be nice to see everyone again. Raven was missing everyone and sharing some good news like this might cheer everyone up after the loss of their home. Moving past Azrael she gestured with her head for the man to follow her up to the cabin, the rain starting to stop. Going to an event didn't seem dangerous at all. It was his comment about her wardrobe that made the girl stop in her tracks, to turn her head to look at him. With a deadpan tone she easily tore about whatever silly thoughts he had that she had the ability to dress for a formal occasion.

"The Ark sank Azrael, I didn't have time to pack up anything formal to wear, like a dress. Plus, you're soaking wet! I didn't pack a suit for Tobias, so I'm not sure I have clothes that'll do for you. I might have a nice blouse though for myself, will that work? What's the event and what are we supposed to do?"

i'm not ashamed of my scars,
i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
