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.

frost.

frozen down to the core



Frost's violet gaze shifted away from his own two children and towards the ring in front of him. The young boy within the ring now was no older than Micah, his little bay gelding perhaps a touch smaller then Micah and Isabella's mounts and yet- it jumped well. The little boy was trying hard. His technique was a little....off and yet, Frost supposed, such a thing was forgivable in a five year old. To some degree. Nadya was always insisting he need not be too...hard on the children. Both of them, after all, stove desperately to do as he asked. Even if in vastly different ways. Isabella was as headstrong as her chestnut pony mare. Both of them were bold. Isabella was the kind of child to act first and ask questions later. Her enthusiasm was encouraging and yet she often forgot to listen. The young girl often realised too late that she had gotten too far ahead of herself and forgotten the course, jumped the wrong jump or knocked down a pole in her recklessness. Isabella never ceased to continue on however. The girl was eternally determined and fiercely competitive. She would make an excellent competition rider in her time if only she could remember to ease back on occasion and yet, Isabella always, always completed those courses with the fastest time.. Micah was near entirely the opposite of his sister. He was cautious, often overly so. He was hesitant to try unless he failed and yet- he rarely ever did. Micah listened intently and learned quickly. He had natural timing and natural talent. He never forgot a course, he rarely knocked a pole, he was soft with his pony and a careful, good jumper. He was simply often...to slow, finishing that course over time- even if he achieved a clear round.

Frost's attention turned away from the child in the ring and back to Isabella who was near bursting with excitement for her turn, the small girl waved enthusiastically to her Mother and Grandmother in the crowd before Frost helped her climb onto the pony's back and handed her the reins. His own fingers worked diligently to tighten the girth strap before Isabella nudged the pony forward and to that starting gate.

"Gangi þér vel."

That Icelandic 'good luck' prompted a wide grin to the girl's features as she boldly trotted into that ring- remembering to keep her heels down all the same. Finally. It was the sudden, soft sound of Micah's voice however that prompted Frost's gaze downward to the small boy beside him. Micah clutched his ponies reins to his chest. The quiet black mare stood ever faithfully beside her small master as Micah queried just what would happen if he messed up. His violet gaze turned downward to eye the small boy then. How...unfortunate that he was beginning to look more and more like Tobias every day. Then again, he supposed Tobias was hardly a....poorly looking individual. Micah would have no trouble getting girls in the least. The idea, in that moment, prompted a faint simper to Frost's lips.

"If you mess it up, then you mess it up, it does not matter. There will always be another try."

That hint of a simper tugged at his lips again as Isabella finished her round to the applause of the crowd, several of those nearby competitors competing on the speed and boldness of her round. Isabella, despite one knocked rail, was already a secured spot for the next round. Micah, however, with a clear round, would have ever chance of joining her. Frost moved to help the small boy into the saddle before handing him the reins.

"You can do it. Be a good boy and give your Mother a heart attack."

That jest, in the least, prompted a grin to the boy's lips as he slowly guided his pony onto the arena.
