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.

If anyone dared to claim that Raven was not carrying Tobias' child, she knew how she would prove it, well she had two ways. Could she telepathically share the very moment the two of them were in the process of creating their child? Yes, she absolutely could. At the very least, that would make people, like Azrael, be well aware that her mate was capable of performing such an act. Although it was probably a bit too graphic, and truth be told, she would be mortified to share such a personal memory. No, there was another way, one that wouldn't be too dramatic. Her hunger. Before she was pregnant, she had a somewhat normal appetite. After years of not having a typical diet, she was accustomed to eating very little and functioning all the same. Now...now...she was finding herself ravenous all the time. Clearly the little life she was carrying belonged to Tobias, the man had a stomach that could never be filled. The only other male she knew that had a similar condition, was the man she could hear call out for her as he entered the cabin. Snatching a cracker and cheese, she sweetly called out for him, popping the food into her mouth, and then turning around to grab a drink. Although he claimed he was okay she still had to offer him something. Grabbing two water bottles she turns around and placed them on the counter, and made her way over to his side. The last time they saw one another was the night their home sank...and that wasn't necessarily a memory she wanted to remember.
With a wide smile, she quietly opened her arms a little bit and gave him a very gentle hug, feeling quite content being close to him again. Raven was ashamed to admit it, but ever since they left the Ark, she had felt those invisible threads between herself and the rest of the pack start to loosen a little bit. Being close to her Alpha again, those threads seemed strong as they were when they were in the Ark. Taking a step back, and giving him his space again, she peered over his shoulder at the paper bag, tilting her head to the side in puzzlement. As he started talking about the diving team, she nodded, and she replied softly.
Circling around him she noticed the familiar shape of a book poking out from the bag. Looking back at him and then at the bag of books, she couldn't help but grin. Reading a book was her way to mentally escape everything. Not that she didn't enjoy spending time with her husband out here in the woods, but...it was a hobby of hers that she enjoyed. Ever since she was a little girl, those books were her ticket to leave this world and enter another one. Taking the first book out, she noticed the title didn't sound familiar, but looking at the stack of books below it, she noticed some did. Placing the book back in the bag she turned around and gave him another small grin.
Tetradore didn't have to buy her new books and bring them all the way up here. The young woman appreciated the gesture tremendously. Moving to the other side of her Alpha, she sat next to him, grabbing one of the turkey sandwiches to munch on, hoping it would silence the growl coming from her stomach. Chewing on her sandwich, she stared out one of the windows in her kitchen, seeing the familiar little trail that she and Tobias created when they started their daily adventures in the woods. What a loaded question. How had things been? She missed the one place she had ever called home. She missed their pack and friends. And now that she was pregnant, and no matter how many pregnant brochures she read at the office or the articles online, the whole experience was just...surreal. But even though she missed how things were back at home, she had to admit it was rather nice to spend time alone with her own mate, it was like a vacation. Her animal half was enjoying it too! Being near the woods was actually quite nice, peaceful almost. Swallowing her bite, she looked over at him for a moment, releasing a heavy sigh she had no idea she was holding in.
Pulling back from of her golden-brown curls behind her eat she took another bite of her sandwich. Apparently that first bite before did nothing but encourage her to eat more. After a few more bites she grabbed the water to drink it. Picking up another sandwich, she looked over at him, as she asked how he was holding up. After all...he was their Alpha, he lost his territory, his pack was split, the home he built was gone. If any of them were in pain, perhaps, he was in pain the most. It was important, she thought, that he talk about it too. It would help for her to know how he was...before she told him just why she and Tobias needed to relieve their anxiety and stress.
