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.

Brenden



His sister once told him to be nice to people and they would be nice in return. Considering their overwhelming age gap, she had been right and still remains to be right even to this day. She was perhaps the one and only person who could pull a genuine smile from him and the only person to have seen a more gentle side to him. Although, that was something that hadn't happened in ages, he hadn't sat down and just talked it out with his sister, had dinner or even seen her in awhile now. The warlock was entirely aware the moment he saw the woman, she would have him wrapped around her finger again and pump her full of money for her drug addiction. Things... he wasn't too keen on thinking about and yet, she made sure, she was on his mind constantly. Brenden knew for a fact he needed to find a place to hide for a few days, maybe he would rent a hotel for a night or two, he was certain she would be on her way here in a matter of moments.

It was a high stress situation and the exhaustion was beginning to crack the scowl that lingers on his face, his dark eyes blinking at the southern woman across from him. Her quip back to him has him staring at her for a long moment, a sigh being released through his nostrils. It was true... he had almost hit her but in his eyes... he didn't and that was all there was to be said. It wasn't a topic he was willing to linger on. His demeanor shifts shortly after as his mood sours as he snaps his notebooks closed with finality - a scowl lingering on his face as he all but bites out his words of disgust. He's very nearly ready to stand and lead her out of the shop before her southern accent is firing back at him. Eyes widening, Brenden takes a long look at her, looking for a place to cut her off and demand she leave. At least... that was his goal until she threw that challenge in his face.

He sits there with lips parted, looking for his voice, looking more like a gaping fish every moment before he finally snaps his jaw closed, his teeth clacking against each other audibly. Brenden watches her for a long moment, his brows furrowed before he sighs in utter defeat. Fucking women. He couldn't win today, could he? Bringing a hand up, he drags it down his face as he pinches the bridge of his nose, eyes falling closed as he gives a large exhale. Grunting, he lets his hand fall to the desk before his fingers drum across the wood surface lightly. "Fine," he mutters after a moment, "I'm only doing this because... I jumped to a conclusion," he states gruffly, looking away. It was probably the best apology Carolina was going to get, the words 'I'm sorry,' perhaps only leaving his lips once or twice in his adulthood years.

Refocusing his gaze on her, he reaches down and flips open that notebook, finding a clean page as he picks up the pencil again, his eyes flicking up to meet her's again. "If you are willing to still work with me," he pauses, a wince crosses his features momentarily, "What are your ideas you have?" He asks finally, the man hardly known for making exceptions. If it were... any other day, he might have kicked her out and dealt with the consequences that followed but his mental state was exhausted. Reaching out, he taps the notebook in front of her with the eraser, "That book has a lot of work I've done in the past, feel free to browse through it to get a feel of my style more," his deep tenors roll off his tongue, while his deep brown eyes watch her. It was amazing... how fast his switch could be flipped.
