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.

calamity

The life I live is one big calamity

Effortlessly, the Were-King followed the sound of the young woman moving about in the depths of the kitchen. Her offer for food was one he turned down with a nonchalant brush of his hand, only to find a bottle of water thrust at him instead. He was hardly prepared, admittedly, for the sensation of her arms wrapping around him a light hug. It was one that Tetradore permitted, despite his general dislike of such touches of affection. Raven alone the only woman who seemed to consistently test that boundary he so afforded others. The gesture wasn't exactly returned, the Were-King simply waiting for it to end before he was finally released with a soft breath of relief. Tetradore placed the paper bag he'd previously been holding up on the counter as the Alpha slid into one of the stools positioned at the bar top. His explanation of the bag's contents seemed to prompt a glimpse of inquisitiveness within the girl, one that Tetradore was hardly oblivious too. He said little of it, however, instead, informing Raven of the diving team and their accomplishments...or lack thereof, as far as Raven's library was concerned.

Raven's apology, albeit unnecessary, was one Tetradore quite literally waved off. "Don't worry about it." He offered her flippantly. Those things, despite their loss and value to the pack, could be largely replaced, he was certain. And, after all, as Raven had mentioned, they had made it out in one piece, that truly of far more consequence than any book sunken at the bottom of the ocean. He watched, nevertheless, as Raven maneuvered carefully around him to inspect the contents of the bag, her gaze momentarily deviating from her gift towards his features. His brow rose and yet, the Were-King remained mute as that warm grin spread across her features. He knew, of course, how important those novels were to the girl, even if Tetradore was ignorant of her preferences of what she so liked to fill her brain with. She seemed...excited, at least, as she pulled each book out of the depths of the sack, several clearly interesting her. At the very least, it seemed his effort had been well received. What a rarity that was.

The far corners of his lips tilted upwards in a hint of a simper as Tetradore's head bobbed ever so slightly. "I'm glad you like them." He responded and genuinely, he was. His fingers absentmindedly toyed with the lid of the water bottle in front of him as Raven moved around him, settling at the barstool beside him. He glanced briefly at the turkey sandwich she grabbed, only for his gaze to drift away from her and towards the interior of the home. It looked...certainly more lived in then he had last seen it and yet...he was glad for the change. They seemed to be adjusting well, at least at first glance. It was that very train of thought that prompted the inquiry upon his lips, the emerald of his gaze returning towards her as she took another bite of her sandwich. Tetradore was entirely attentive to that thoughtful glimpse upon her features, that query, apparently, required far more thought then he had anticipated. His gaze lingered upon her as she considered the answer, chewing the bite of her sandwich in the process. That heavy sigh upon her lips as she swallowed only prompted his brows to rise yet again, even as he remained silent.

Her explanation, however, hardly seemed to explain that sigh in the slightest. Everything, at least, sounded relatively well here. A soft sound of contemplation reverberated in the back of the Were-King's throat as his gaze turned back towards the large windows. "Yeah, I thought about bringing the pack up here for the full moon or something...maybe after everyone gets settled a bit." After all, their worlds had changed just as much as his had. He wanted them to find some resemblance of normality in their new lives before hauling them all away, even if it was just for a weekend. He hadn't expected for that query to be turned back upon him, however. "Mira's...fine. I guess? Everyone seems...fine...for the most part." His shoulders lived in a vague shrug, that inquiry of a new home far more intriguing to him then the mental well being of his pack. "Oh, yeah, I have something started for us. It'll take a while though."
