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.

you could rattle the stars.
you could do anything,
if only you dared
It was clear almost immediately she had made a mistake in her offhanded comment about her owner and yet... the rage that fueled her flames was not thinking about the future or who this man might be. Still, she can't help but feel a slight surprise at the man standing in front of her, the fact that he was still attempting to converse with her was beyond Vhalla. It wasn't often she found a stranger that could put up with the anger that made up the majority of who the witch was. Plus... the flaming arm would be an immediate 'fuck that' for most people but this man still remained in front of her, even offering a smile that made her want to punch his teeth down his throat. Although, the moment she mentions Ivan she notices the slight straightening in the man, as if he had narrowed in his focus on her, as if... it made her prey.
Vhalla didn't like it.
Immediately her guard goes up, her rage taking a backseat momentarily as her blue eyes watch the man warily. His words linger on her ears as she scrunches her nose at him, the woman incredibly talented at looking down her nose at someone even when they were taller than her. The assassin debates momentarily on answering him, how badly she wants to sneer at him and perhaps set him on fire... but, the way he seemed to be paying more attention to her has her biting her tongue. It was a sore topic for her, that ownership since she was a child and it might have been written on her face slightly but she turns her face away from him for a moment.
Her emotions take a full turn as her head snaps back to him, the suggestion that he go with her to get coffee has her eyes widening in incredulousness. As he begins to move towards her, she takes a step backwards, following him careful with those glacier eyes. His accented words touch her ears again as her brows rise as he casually drops that pet name. Her face instantly darkens, arms coming up to cross over her chest. She almost looked... like a petulant child in that moment. How desperately she wants to turn around and walk the other way but Vhalla was almost certain this man would simply follow her wherever she went until he got what he wanted. And whatever he wanted, she couldn't figure it out yet.
The casual introduction of his name makes the assassin tuck it away, she would figure out who he was tonight. She pauses for a moment longer before unfolding her arms and stalking towards the man, sidling up next to him as she watches him from the corner of her eye, "I don't harm mortals," she grunts at him but after a moment she tacks on, "unless I have to. You, on the other hand, are not a mortal, I wouldn't mind watching you burn, Thorne," she draws out his name as if it were a curse word. Making a point to not look at him, she makes her way down the sidewalk towards the coffeeshop, stopping just outside the door before she finally looks at him again, "Why do you insist on following me?" She grunts at him before pushing her way through the door before he can be a 'gentleman', the bell ringing loudly above her head.
Wincing at the racket, she purposely lets the door fall closed on Thorne before making her way to the counter. "Just a black coffee," she orders only for the barista to ask her, her name. The assassin wasn't planning on giving her name to Thorne and it would be an easy thing to give an alias and yet... it was such an automatic thing that her mouth is opening before her brain is processing it, "Vhalla," was the quick reply before the realization hits. God, she was an idiot. She quickly recovers before she steps to the side, turning her head back towards the man with a sickly sweet smile, "He's paying," she wiggles her scarred fingers at him before walking to the end of the counter to wait for her drink.
To the stars who listen- and the dreams that are answered
