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.

Wake up to your dreams
And watch them come true



To say these last few months had been...trying, well, that would have been an understatement. Two pregnancies later and nothing but a memorial stone at the edge of their property to show for it. Nadya had been bed bound for a month after the most reason loss; having labored for hours only to give birth to a 5 month premature stillborn daughter. It had ripped Nadya apart emotionally. The only saving grace was Frost's mother returning, helping with the twins and other pack related activities while Nadya was on bedrest.

Today she was feeling well enough to leave the house and it wasn't a day that Nadya wanted to miss either. Despite their loss, she still had 2 healthy children who needed her and today was a very special day for them. Nadya was grateful that Katrin had stayed, though she also figured the woman was just as excited to see Micah and Isabella's first event. Over the last year, the twins had worked hard learning everything Frost had to teach them when it came to riding. Now they were ready, according to Frost, and although Nadya was proud of them and excited for them...she was also nervous.

Nadya settled at the sidelines with Katrin amongst the rest of the crowd. A little boy atop his horse was currently weaving and jumping through the course. Some of those jumps looked far too high in her opinion. The nervousness for her children was hard to quell. "Are you sure those aren't too high? What if they fall? They could break something." Katrin didn't seem to share Nadya's worried musings. Nadya's gaze drifted to the barn in the distance where her children were surely getting ready under Frost's watchful eye.

Indeed the twins were ready, or at least Isabella was. They had ended up getting separate horses, having graduated from the little pony they had shared together not that long ago. Isabella barely passed the top of her chestnut mare's leg but there was no fear in her as she bounced excitedly on her heels beside the equine holding tight to the reins. The excited movements tugged and swayed at the bridle around the mare's head but the equine didn't seem to care, far used to her little owner's movements by now. It would be their turn soon and Isabella was more than ready. Her brother however was less than sure. Micah felt like he was going to puke. He may have only been 5 ½ but the risk of being in front of a bunch of people and messing up...he'd never get over the embarrassment. "What if I mess up?" Micah whispered and turned his gaze up to Frost who had been helping them get ready and would walk them to the ring when it was their turn. Micah's own black mare kept gently nudging his back, perhaps sensing his apprehension, but it did nothing to calm his nerves.
