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.

death incarnate & night triumphant

It was perhaps, one of his more peaceful places to visit while he was in the city. Andras hardly taking much time away from Somnia, though his world was peaceful by nature and if the Fae Lord had anything to do with it, it would remain that way. The creek deep in the woods was also a place of solitude, the man hardly encountering many who would come this deep into the forest, it was even a place of safety, the male able to unleash those powerful wings from their slumber. And that's what the man does as he lounges in a tree, his massive black and leathery wings relaxed on either side of the trunk, his suit jacket laying along a branch next to him and his button up undone on the first three buttons. He had forgone a tie this morning, Andras hardly having any pressing matters today, it was rare for the Fae Lord to have a... free day. He suspected Ida had something to do with it, the old faerie woman a force to be reckoned with, he was almost certain she had scared off the local lords in Somnia so he could enjoy a day in Sacrosanct.

He doesn't dwell on it long, his dark hazel eyes closed, face turned towards the sun as he soaks up what he can. Andras was almost certain he had dozed a few times, his familiarity with sleeping in trees perhaps the only thing to keep him falling the 15 feet to the ground. A gentle face continuously fades in and out of his slumber, the gentle wavy blonde curls and blue eyes a haunting presence. He could never get away from her, could never go a day without thinking about her and yet, she wanted nothing to do with him. As he eases from his sleep, he opens his eyes, brows furrowed at the canopy above him, a hand reaching up and running it through his shaggy locks, successfully turning it into disarray. Wallowing of Lani was not going to change anything, it would only bring him more sorrow and yet, it was entirely impossible to forget the gentle woman. Blinking once... twice, he releases a breath through his nostrils as he sits up, pushing the woman from his mind briefly. It was high time he returned to Somnia, he had been gone long enough.

And truly, Andras would have portaged his way to his city right then and there if not for a loud splash that his delicately pointed ears pick up. Instantly, his wings are gone, the man far too recognizable by those massive wings, he reaches out a hand snags his suit jacket and slips it on, his dark eyes taking on a predatory gaze as he scans the area. It doesn't take long before he finds the source of the noise, his brows arching in surprise briefly as he takes in a petite woman, her hair like fire against the green hues of the forest and those wings... they were massive. It was rare to see another Fae with such large wings, let alone someone who looked like they would very nearly fall over from the weight of them and yet, he tilts his head as he watches her from afar, fascinated by the delightful giggle that escapes her. A free spirit, that's what she was. And when she falls back casually onto those wings, he can't help but wince, he was not particularly fond of using his wings for a cushion, his wings prone to tears, it was far easier to keep them clean of dirt and twigs if he didn't lay on them.

Still, he's fascinated as he watches her for a moment more, she was the first new faerie he had seen in the city in a long while. And despite the urgent matters to attend to back in Somnia, he's curious. Silently climbing down the tree, albeit awkwardly, the forest floor cloaks his sound as he slips his hands into his pocket, that cool, arrogant mask sliding into place across his features as he exits his cover, standing on the opposite bank of the woman. Andras watches her briefly, curious to see how long she takes for her to notice him. Wings entirely absent in the wake of a new Fae, he clears his throat, "Darling, don't you know this city is infested with Hunters?" He calls out finally, those deep tenors holding a natural purr to his vocals, "And not the nice kind I might add," he tosses her a casual wink, his voice lined with an ancient accent no longer in existence.
