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.

It was decidedly a... gift that Vhalla had in pissing people off. The woman a natural at making people angry, irritating them, she was even talented in getting them to throw the first punch just so she could feel something for a change. What the assassin was not accustomed to was apologizing for her behavior. Truly, the witch could count on one hands how many times she had apologized and actually meant it. Guilt was not something the woman liked to feel, especially when she was the reason to cause such a feeling. So, she covered it with fire and rage, anything to keep her from feeling something real, to regret a decision and yet, her whole life was one big regret. She was nothing more than a coward and although she would never admit it, she felt that every damn day. Today just happened to be a rather rough day... more rough than normal. Picking a fight with a disabled person was new for Vhal and honestly, she couldn't hate herself anymore than she already did, so why the fuck not?
Her childish act fades away, even when the Russian woman retorts back sarcastically. Normally, the assassin would be jumping at the gun to pick a fight, whether it be a verbal spar or an actual spar and yet, she was far too exhausted. The alcohol was finally wearing off, her head hurt from lack of water and those pesky feelings were racing back in faster than ever before. Sighing through her nose, she can't help but wonder about this woman's particular gift, it made Vhalla wary. She didn't care to be known, not really. She especially didn't want this stranger to find out that she was a hired gun to take out people's problems. No... even Vhalla could see the complications that might arise if this woman started poking into where she wasn't wanted. Still, the witch can't help but stiffen as a long pause is had from the Russian, her icy gaze watching the woman carefully. Her answer was... honest and yet it hardly made the woman feel any better.
The assassin can't help but stiffen at her response, her blue gaze hardly wavering from the Russian. She stares at her for a long moment, debating if she needed to set this woman on fire or not before she finally breaks her gaze away. If this woman had dived into her head, she was certain that even that cold indifference the Russian possessed would falter, even if just a little. Vhalla wasn't sure why... but she did believe the stranger. Facing her again, some of the wariness had left her, "Let's keep it that way," she states bluntly before another long silence falls between them. Still, Vhalla can't help but keep her curiosity as bay, her next question rising up after a long while. The Russian's answer is hardly satisfactory and yet, it was a response that even Vhalla would give. It wasn't like she was in this city because she wanted to be here, Ivan kept her locked away here. Would never let go of his prized jewel. Disgusting.
The next words that float into Vhal's head has the white haired woman glancing at her doppelgänger, even as a shadow crosses the assassin's face. Brows furrowed at a memory, her eyes glaze briefly, "Trust me, this is not an interrogation," she scoffs as a blood soak room fills her memories. Again, silence falls once more as Vhal turns her face to the ocean, the light breeze teasing her hair and clearing her mind. Pushing herself to a standing position, she wipes at her soaked pants half heartedly before turning and looking down at the moment, "Well, I'm going to go sleep this off and pretend like it never happened," Vhalla states, she grins though its more of a baring of her teeth, "Toodles, hope you don't run into anymore drunken fire breathers," she states, sarcasm rolling off her tongue as she waggles her fingers at the Russian woman. "Let's hope to never meet again," she states before turning on a heel and walking... a bit more successfully down the beach this time.
To the stars who listen- and the dreams that are answered
