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.

It was an odd thing... being a shifter. Though, it was the only thing Willy had known his whole life - though he was able to dabble in the human side growing up. Attending school and college, even launching a career as a human! It was exciting, as all things were exciting to the overzealous shifter. Yet, what Willy doesn't expect is the sudden question about communication that has him turning his head towards the warlock, his seasickness momentarily forgotten along with the devil dog sitting near him. A pinch appears between his brows as he thinks for a long moment, the orca was not one for long silences but... it was hard to explain without being a shifter to understand. "Well, it's sort of... complicated?" He starts, though his statement sounds far more like a question than anything else. "You know how deaf people have sign language?" He prompts, waiting for Brennan to grasp his meaning before continuing.

"Whales have gestures and even though we can't establish a mental connection, we can sort of get the gist of what's going on through sounds and movements," he frowns again, "Does that make sense? It's not a simple yes or no answer," he explains while the over excited Willy takes a backseat for the moment, a seriousness falling over him briefly. Though it hardly lasts long as his gaze darts to the demon-dog, only realizing how close he was. His complaint does not have the desired effect, Brennan casually explaining that he was, in fact, not a dog. "You've got to be joking," he mutters, pressing himself as far away from the animal as he can. Honestly, it didn't take much for the shifter to believe something - Brennan could have convinced him the sky was green and he would have believed him! Perhaps not the sharpest tool in the shed but... he meant well.

"Why in the ever loving god would you want to have a hellhound as a pet. What even is a hellhound?!" He exclaims, his gaze newly locked onto Barney instead of the horizon. "Do hellhounds eat people? Do I need to worry about losing an appendage?" And being Willy, rather than keeping hands and feet away from the dog, he casually covers his junk, though it's safely stored away in clothing now, it was his most prized possession!

He realizes his mistake after only a moment, the man beginning to feel a bit woozy once more as a quiet groan escapes his lips. His mind is distracted once more, as he glances out along the sea again to ease the roil of his gut. It's not an instant cure, though it does help especially as a fairly cool gust of wind presses against his face. Sighing in relief, he's careful to allow his gaze wander across the meticulous boat, Willy knowing nothing about boats and how they worked but it was nice to look at... right? It wasn't as if he had been on a lot of boats to note if they were nice or not.

The sudden question that is thrown his way has Zach glancing at the warlock, a sheepish grin stretching across his lips, "Well... I don't know anyone here and don't have a place to stay...," he trails off at a moment, it was clear what he was hinting at and yet, Willy really was never one to beat around the bush, "I figured since you picked me up and are already giving me a ride to the docks you could let me crash with you for a few days... maybe a week?" He grins widely, the devil dog forgotten for a long moment, "I just need to get a little situated is all," he explains, that stupid grin still stretched across his features. "I mean, you don't mind... do you?"
