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.

I have traveled through madness to find me



Tobias could hardly help that low sound of satisfaction that rose within his chest as the nurse, Heather, fled the room. That animalistic part of him took satisfaction in claiming that very room for himself- in some fashion. He disliked this place. Those unfamiliar, sharp scents were an assault to his nose, that small room a veritable cage his mind rebelled agianst. That animal beneath his skin was...discontent. Tobias never truly had been good at separating those animalistic behaviours from his human desires. Those emotions and thoughts and feelings and instincts so tending to blur into one. The stern, disapproving look Raven offered him managed only to prompt those leopard ears to flatten backwards. The young man was so clearly aware he was being scolded in some sense and yet, while he held no desire to distress his wife- the leopard was nothing if not stubborn today. Tobias inclined to be belligerent. The deviant seeking some control in a situation and place in which he felt he had none. Raven's hand reached for his own, that soft squeeze so at least managing to draw his attention and perhaps, momentarily, distract his thoughts away from those animalistic inclinations. Raven's near pleading for him to behave, if only for her, prompted a soft snort from the man. Tobias content to mutter something incomprehensible beneath his breath and yet he seemed to...settle, even if only slightly. The man near reluctantly moving to sit in that chair Raven had desired him in. For Raven alone, it seemed, he was willing to do as asked.

The sudden opening of the door prompted the deviant's dark gaze sideways, the woman who entered met with little more than a scowl from the man and yet he remained as Raven had asked all the same. Raven's wide grin for that woman prompted a near curious head tilt from the Leopard. His wife, it seemed....liked this woman. Tobias was capable of asserting that very thing from her grin. Yes. He was sure. How desperately he struggled, sometimes, to understand those emotions from facial features alone. The young man, in the very least, seemed to have grasped even this small notion. The doctor turned toward him then, whatever curiosity the Leopard held for her was near quickly swallowed by that veritable scowl he offered her again. He was willing to tolerate her presence it seemed and yet that tolerance existed only at her distance. Tobias was nothing short of unwilling to have that woman near him. Those leopard ears that sat neatly atop his head lay flat once more, his lip lifting in warning from those feline fangs. This woman, in the very least, sensible enough not to press her luck any further with that approach. The doctor seemed content to...hold her own ground in turn. That very dominance within her decidedly notable. Women were not Alpha's, of that he was certain. Tobias, in that moment, so briefly searching for any hint of a male counterpart. His mind dissatisfied with that doctor's apparent claim to leadership within that room. Tobias had, in all his life, known only one true female Alpha.....and how he had loathed that woman and so certainly still did. For several precarious moments that veritable tension between the pair continued to run tautly through the room. Tobias seemed to...debate on whether or not he desired this room for himself once more. The Were near considering an open challenge to the supposed leadership of this....woman and yet his dark gaze shifted back toward Raven once more. He disliked to....distress her. This would upset her. Yes.

A low rumbling growl rose within the leopards throat. Tobias' tail content to lash once more and yet....his gaze shifted from the mismatched eyes of the woman's own. The leopard, for now, content to avert that challenge even despite his dislike for her eyes themselves. He had seen eyes like that before. Yes. Yes. He remembered them....and what they had done. Her praise of his ears and tail were, perhaps, her only acceptable traits. Just why Tobias remained content to be so very difficult today remained to be seen and yet, for now at least, he remained settled within that chair. The man was content to permit that examination of his wife. Raven already assured him of just what would happen to a degree. It was with some measure of curiosity that Tobias watched the doctor work. Those protective instincts within himself...lessened by Raven's own clear clam and that quiet, soft chatter between the women as the doctor worked. The doctor moved to wheel that machine over then, Tobias once more satisfied to watch with some vague measure of curiosity. The boy seemed to enjoy eyeing those many buttons upon the machine he knew already he was not allowed to touch before that sudden question of gender prompted his dark eyes to lift once more. He understood that word and its meaning. Tobias had long been concerned with Raven's inability to tell him whether or not that child was a boy or a girl. The Leopard, after all, so eternally seemed to...struggle with those questions that held no answers or indeed Raven's insistence that she 'did not know'. It was not acceptable not to know things- of this he was certain. Raven knew many things. Why could she not know this? The very idea that the doctor might know seemed to turn within his mind for several long moments before Tobias nodded readily.

"Yes I....would like to.....know."

A sweet moment of
