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.

death incarnate & night triumphant

Andras can't help but wince slightly as he watches the stranger lay amongst the grass, her feathered wings used as a cushion as she closes her eyes. It practically hurt the man to see the twigs and dirt intertwine within those feathers - though, he imagined her wings were much less... vulnerable to such things. His were more bat-like, the warm leathery membrane that spanned the course of his appendages were far more likely to tear than the woman's before him. Yet, it wasn't likely Andras would mention those vulnerabilities of his own, let alone let the woman see his massive wings, those said appendages vanished from the Fae in a moment as he silently climbs down the tree, his steps almost soundless as he pads across the damp foliage. Hands sliding into his pockets, he can't help but offer the stranger a friendly warning, the fiery redhead hardly even opening her eyes to assess him.

How very curious.

She didn't seem to deem him a threat, not that he was anyhow, or perhaps it was because the Faerie Lord was on the far side of the bank, the woman having amble time to ready herself if the need arose. And yet, he didn't immediately sense any ill intent on her part - Andras watching with an amused expression, his body shifting lightly to rest his weight on one foot. Her words bring a dark laugh escaping his lips, the raising of one shoulder casually in a shrug, though he's aware she can't see his movements, "Perhaps not a knight in shining armor... more of a man in a business suit," he replies swiftly, hazel eyes, "Plus, I'm not really one of those rescuing types," his eyes alight with amusement, words coated in that ancient accent long lost to the world. When her eyes finally open, Andras meets her gaze easily, his dark eyes weighing heavily on the woman who finally brings herself into a standing position.

He watches her for a moment, the woman smoothing out her dress, her feathers ruffling to loosen the dirt in them. It's only then that he notices how very large those appendages are, it dwarfed the woman and he was mildly impressed she had the strength to hold them up. His dark hazel gaze roams her wings momentarily, noting the... twigs that poked out from them. Andras wasn't entirely sure why but he had an urge to scold her, to demand that she take better care of herself and yet the feeling soon passed. Instead, his brows arch slightly at the comment she throws his way. "My good lady, they are terribly good at hiding themselves amongst the bushes. Why, I'd say that rabbit over there looks suspicious," he gestures towards the opposite of the bank, a bunny hopping lazily through the greenery in search for a snack. And as if it understood the context of what was being said, it's body turns briefly in their direction before darting away swiftly.

"It seems... I've managed to scare them off for you," he pauses for a long moment, that dark smile lingering on his lips before he removes his hands from his pockets, "You're welcome by the way," he simpers again. It was hardly his usually facade he used with strangers, but they were far from the city and from any listening ears that might report back to certain groups. "I can't say I recognize you, are you new to the city?" He asks after a moment, curiosity coating his words briefly. Andras was good with faces, especially ones that belong to the Fae and yet... the was a nagging suspicion that he had met this woman once upon a time - perhaps in another life. The fiery hair made him question himself and yet, he couldn't quite put a name to the face or perhaps he was simply trying to make a connection the wasn't there.

Still, it would hardly harm anything to get to know her.
