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.

Raven Cain


The young woman couldn't help, but feel a little bit jittery as she drove herself and her husband to her doctor's appointment. Raven had no idea how this little rendezvous was going to go, but she hoped it would go well. She needed this trip to go well. After all, she didn't want to be alone in the delivery room. The idea of going through that ordeal alone terrified her. What happened if something went wrong? Neonatal death was a 1% chance. As for the Mother, about 700 of them die after pregnancy. With her inability to heal herself like a normal Were, well surely her chances of something going wrong must increase. Not that she expected to die of course, but knowing her luck she wouldn't be surprised if something bad did happen to herself or their child. Having Tobias with her would be very reassuring. To help him understand or at the very least be familiar, she thought it was best to start slow. Thus, a simple trip for a mother and child check-up. Although this particular check-up would be exciting...they could finally know the gender of their first child. Would it be a boy or a girl? Who knows! One thing they would still have to wait on was just which species the child would be. However, that didn't matter. The only thing that mattered to her was that she and her baby were safe and healthy. With their destination in sight, she slowly drove the car towards the building and parked it into a spot. Pressing the start button to shut off the engine, she looked over to her mate with a small smile.

"Hey Tobi?"

Once her mate shifted his eyes to meet her own, she took her hand to gently grab his own. Surely, he could feel her anxiety and excitement.

"Thank you for coming with me to see the Doctor. It really does mean a lot. But before we go in, I really...really need you to be the best you can be, okay? Doctor Sanchez is a very sweet and kind woman. During the visit, there's going to be a couple of machines and they might make funny noises. Doctor Sanchez is going to have to touch me, and you're going to have to let her. There's going to be a moment when she draws my blood, it hurts a little bit, but it's necessary. Promise me you'll be great!"

Quietly she waited for her deviant companion to acknowledge what she had said, and to hear him promise her. Once he did that, she would squeeze his hand gently, and then let go. Unbuckling her seatbelt, she took a deep breath and then opened the door, slowly climbing out. Closing the door shut she walked to the front of the car, meeting her husband and extending her hand to hold his own, hearing the car's alarm beep stating the car was locked. Somehow, she would need to explain to Tetradore that she would need a different sort of vehicle in the next few months. The sliding doors instantly opened and she easily walked over towards the front desk, giving the receptionist a small smile. Letting go of her husbands' hand, she grabbed one of the pens and started writing her name down, speaking to the receptionist quietly. Turning around she led her husband over towards the waiting room, gesturing for him to sit with her. It didn't take long for a nurse in purple scrubs to open a door on the opposite side of the room, calling out for them, and introducing herself as Heather. With a nod she got up and started walking towards her, only to stop to turn around and ensure Tobias was following her.

As they were led towards the room, she couldn't help, but wring her hands a little. The nurse opened the door and gestured them inside, letting Raven know she ought to change into the gown, and that she would be in again in a few minutes to start the checkup. The room contained a bed that looked a little bit like a chair with slots at one end. There was a large machine next to the bed like a chair with a screen. On the other side of the room was a small cabinet with a sink, and various medical items sitting in jars. Opposite from the door they just entered, was another door closed. Sitting on the bed like a chair, she gestured for Tobias to sit on the small chair closest to the cabinet and then began to wring her hands. Looking to her husband she realized this was perhaps the first time he was ever in a medical facility. This must be such a strange environment, and being in a strange environment could be very unsettling. Hoping to keep him at ease she spoke up softly.

"You know, this is my fifth time being in some sort of medical room. It's kind of weird you know? How are you doing...nervous?"

i'm not ashamed of my scars,
i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
