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.

Being far away from home and her family didn't feel right. She missed her day-to-day activities like preparing meals, working with Tetradore, spending quality time with friends and family in the city, she enjoyed those moments. The transition was a bit difficult at first, but she was starting to build a new routine with her chosen mate. Spending time alone with her mate was nice. Their relationship was not strained by any means, but being alone together allowed the two of them to deepen their bond. It felt satisfying to have Tetradore here, sitting at the barstool in her kitchen, like placing one of the missing pieces to the puzzle in place. Although Raven was wary when it came to touching strangers, she had no problems touching those that she trusted. Hugging her Alpha gave her a sense of comfort, as if everything was okay and that they were still family. He never was one to return the gesture, but she figured it was just him being his typical reserved self, or maybe it was a feline thing. After all, Tobias didn't care for hugs before, but he was tolerating them now. The curly-haired woman appreciated his thoughtful gesture. There were enough books to help her pass the time and keep her occupied should her unruly spotted companion decide to venture out in the woods on his own, play with his toys or video games. After answering his question on how things were going, she gently pressed him with her own inquires. Quietly she nodded her head thoughtfully, approving the idea of bringing the pack here for a full moon, but respecting his decision to not bring them around quite yet.

"Oh yea? I think they'd enjoy being up here, away from the city for a bit, allowing us all to reconnect. But letting them get settled is good too."

It would be wonderful to see everyone again! There were plenty of some sites they could visit together. Raven knew without a doubt that Alexis would enjoy running through the valley outside the woods, the red fox would be able to test her speed without the fear of traps from a Dark Hunter. Mira and Carolina would probably enjoy checking out the waterfall or the cave near the area to explore. As for the boys of the pack, surely, they would find something here together...whether that was lying in the sun on a branch or playing video games in the cabin. After taking the last bite of her turkey sandwich, she grabbed her own water bottle, twisting the lid off, and bringing the bottle upwards to drink. It wasn't surprising that he didn't say how he was doing. Surely, he was beyond stressed with everything that happened. Their business and home were destroyed, as an Alpha, it was his responsibility to ensure their safety...and here they were scattered to the wind. It was good though that everyone else was doing very well, but she was hoping Tetradore wasn't beating himself up over this scenario. Setting the water bottle down on the countertop, she turned her head to face him, catching his gaze first until she replied kindly.

"That is good that Mira and everyone else is okay, but what about you? How are you doing?"

It wasn't like the man ever told her how he felt...ever. He didn't have to. However, she was willing to listen, and if he wasn't interested in telling her, that was okay too. The mention of their new home was exciting news to hear. That he was already looking into getting them a new place was a positive sign that things would eventually return back to normal, well as normal as things could be. With a bit of eagerness in her voice, she responded quickly, curious to see if he could give her any fun details.

"Oh? Well, that's pretty good. If you made this home for us, I am sure our new place will be just as amazing. Is there anything you can tell me, or are you going to keep it as a secret?"

Speaking of secrets...she was excited, and a bit worried to tell him her secret. Well, it wasn't really a secret. It wasn't like she wanted to keep him in the dark about it. This was something he needed to know. Not just because he was the Alpha of their pack, but as a family member and friend, he deserved to know. For a moment she would grow quiet and begin to fidget nervously with her fingers. Raven doubted he would be upset or disappointed in what she had to say. This would probably be another thing to stress and worry about. Not that she expected him to help raise the child, but in a way...the child would be another member in his pack. Lifting her head to give him a sheepish look, she murmured quite softly.

"Um Tetra? As you go through the process of building our new home might I make one small request?"

Letting her fingers go she'd turn her upper torso towards his direction, resting her left hand over her small bump, giving the man a nervous smile and speaking gently.

"We're going to need a nursery, I'm pregnant."

i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
