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.

It's not the long walk home that will change this heart, but the welcome I receive after the restart.



It seems Dareios had struck a nerve.

The vampire settled in, cocking his weight into one hip as he leaned against the high-top table in a more relaxed fashion, reveling in the sudden change in mood. The air between the reporter and the mayor was still quite tense, but Ms. Dabney here no longer carried all the fighting power. The pretty journalist spat back at him, her tone sickeningly sweet. He knew his comments would get a rise out of her - they certainly produced the desired effect. The mayor allowed an amused smile to surface over her antics, committing this moment to memory, should it be worthwhile to revisit at a later date.

Dareios hardly thought this would be the last time he'd hear from the reporter. She was likely a good one, given this first impression. But two can play at this game. If she wanted to fight, he could spit venom right back at her. But he could tell something was off - she wasn't treating him as just some slimy politician. There was a distaste there that ran deeper than that. It was easy to discern that she wasn't a fan of supernaturals either.

Maybe it was just vampires - those types certainly existed. They could handle the shifters, especially if they turned into fuzzy puppies or pretty ponies. Humans bought good from witches cleverly branded as "self care" in the southside of town all the time. But vampires? They were still slithering, blood sucking creatures of the night. The PR move to rebrand their image was a complicated one.

Dareios listens to the reporter after she takes his card. He nods genuinely, and quietly reminds himself to investigate this issue further. He was sincere about his offer to help her - he'd get his people on this. If this was, in fact, a serial murder, his office would want to be on damage control sooner rather than later anyway.

"Vampire or not..." He repeated, his voice trailing off as his beady gaze hardened on her. "You seem have a soft spot for vampires, hmmm Ms. Dabney?"
