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 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.

Azrael

Only Fools Walk Where Angels Fear To Tread



Raven's insistence that Tetradore was hardly a dick, but rather, simply...not social prompted the lift of one of Azrael's eyes. That was putting it mildly at best. Perhaps he should hardly be surprised. What Were wouldn't defend their Alpha? Maybe they were morally obligated to do as such. Still, the young womans response earned her little more then a soft huff from the Hunter as he settled beside her. His mention of Frost, however, seemed to prompt a far more significant pause from Raven as she considered her words far more carefully. Frost, it seemed, was more of a sore point and yet why shouldn't he be? Even Azrael remembered the wounds the white-haired Were had left. Raven's momentary silence however was broken by her insistence Frost could be difficult. Difficult? That was the best she had? Azrael's golden gaze shifted dubiously once more. Raven fixed with yet another look of disbelief as the blond Hunter merely shook his head.

"Raven. Frost can't hear you here. The man is a colossal jackass and there is nothing wrong with damn well saying it. Besides, I've already told him that to his face. He knows its true.

He had seen Raven, in her animal form, tear people apart. Yet her human form remained almost....oddly...meek. Azrael shook his head softly all the same. Raven always had been mild mannered. It was probably too late to change her now. In the very least her manner could only help her at that upcoming meeting. The car was smoothly piloted out and onto the tar of the road. Raven gently increased the vehicle's speed as they headed closer and closer to the city. The seclusion of the forest left further and further behind. How very much he preferred...civilisation to that veritable jungle they had come from. The pair travelled in a near comfortable silence then before Azrael gestured toward the exit he desired they take. Raven turned the car smoothly onto the exit before her voice filled the car once more. The young Were further querying that meeting they were attending tonight. Azrael exhaled gently.

"Some Hunters are concerned that the Were population of the city has grown too large. Your blood and saliva carries the virus, your basically infectious beings, the risk to humans increases with every new Were that arrives. I've been living in the city for a few years now though. Frost and Tetradore seem to have most of the Were population...well handled to some extent and even then, the rate of Were's turning people either accidentally or on purpose is low. I dont think the population needs any management."

The Hunters shoulders lifted into a loose shrug, his gaze remaining on that road ahead before he gestured to the next turn off. That city at last in sight as they began to head down that hill through the mountains. Raven's final question prompted another shake of his head.

"Because the last time you didn't agree with something you went and blew it up."

Raven, he knew, would know exactly which incident he was referring to- even if he hardly wished to make a point of it now. Azrael at least allowing that manner to drop as the center the outer city limits. The Hunter's hand lifted again, offering those last few directions before the pair finally pulled up outside that towering building that existed as the Hunter's headquarters within the city.

"You ready?"
