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. The University welcomes the talent of students across the world to enroll and unlock their unlimited potential. With applications from across the nation, classes fill up quickly.

over the last crumbling mountain

South

When the last moon is cast over the last star of morning
And the future has passed without even a last desperate warning


"Omph!" The sound of surprise left Aislinn's lips as she collided solidly into something that had stepped in her pathway. The young woman stumbled backwards, only to trip over the uneven stones underfoot. With her precious balance lost, there was little to stop her from landing solidly upon her ground, her butt hardly cushioning her fall as she groaned softly at the fleeting pain from the impact of her human body and the less than kind cobblestone. Slowly, her glacier hued irises turned upwards to stare, blankly, at the man who seemed just as surprised as she was. Really? Had he not been looking where he was walking?! His hand reached out to her, an apology already upon his lips before his very proximity began to speak volumes of what he was. It was hardly his existence as a Dark Hunter that so perturbed her. Aislinn had met their kind before. In a way, they were akin to her - those who damned the impure to the hell they deserved for their soul's plight. A virgin Hunter was the apex of immaculateness, which was everything he most certainly was not. He reeked with the stench of death, with the blackness of chaotic derangement. The vile, desecrated man was about to touch her.

Immediately Aislinn scooted back from his outstretched hand, her soprano voice near akin to a hiss as she forbade him from even letting a finger caress her unsullied flesh. The very force behind her words seemed to prompt a level of astonishment upon his features - the very likes of which seemed to prompt him to freeze. How typical. Men so often were blind to their own demise with their baseless justifications to whatever depraved acts they had committed. This was why her race was so close to extinction. Her gaze narrowed as she watched his hands drop to his side and quickly, Aislinn rose with a hint of resplendent pride within her staggered movements. After spending nearly a century within her true form, it sometimes took a moment for the woman to regain some hint of grace to her gangly limbs. Hands and feet were so terribly awkward in comparison to the hooves she was accustomed to. Her brow arched as she listened to the promise on her lips, the young woman was hardly impressed even by the sight of his palms in a universal gesture of mock innocence.

Her arms crossed over her chest, her palms pressed against her forearms in some pathetic attempt to hold herself and chase away the chill from her skin. A shiver filled her feminine figure, the action seemingly obvious as the man who had walked into her shrugged off his jacket, only to offer it to her. For a moment, Aislinn merely stared at it...and then at him....and then back at it, the girl attempted to decide if touching it might transfer some of his...contamination. Hesitantly, Aislinn reached out for the jacket, careful to ensure that she didn't touch his hand as she took the woolen peacoat. Cautiously, the young woman pulled it around her shoulders, it was far warmer than the aged dress she wore. For a moment, she inspected the sleeves and the heavy material, it seemed decently made really, nothing like the cheap vibrantly colored fur she'd seen some of the women pass by wear. This...was acceptable. Her decision of such caused her to clutch it closer towards her figure as her gaze turned upwards towards the man to answer those questions she had ignored up until this point. "No, I am not lost. I just...don't know where I am..yet." She clarified, her gaze swept over the park with vague inquisitiveness. It was the prospect of going somewhere 'safe', however, that caused Aislinn to pause. She knew what he was asking of her, some home with four walls and a roof where she'd be warm and safe with some family or friends or loved one. It was a quaint idea, but such had not been the life for the unicorn in sometime. "I am not from here." She responded with a sigh, "...so I do not have a...safe place to go to." Aislinn paused, only to repeat again the same word that she'd utilized to end her earlier sentence. "...yet."

Then look into the sky where through the clouds a path is torn
Look and see her how she sparkles
it's the last unicorn
