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.

The University of Sacrosanct
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.

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.
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.
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. 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.

I'm a devil in disguise
Aislinn's clear knowledge of the imperfections and insanity that existed within the core of William's soul was enough to make the man want to flee from this scene, and yet there was something about the fragile appearing young woman that kept him rooted to his place. There was a part of him that knew, logically, that the words tumbling from his lips were insane. He didn't know the young woman, and as such, he had no obligation to give up his home to a literal stranger. In fact, based on his history with people in his supernatural lifetime, it was absolutely a better idea to run far, far away from the young girl. For everything that William was and everything he had been through, he should be more fearful of others, more isolated, more... distant. He had every reason to not trust anyone else. And yet the gentle hearted human boy that he'd once been still lived within him. Sebastian had given him a glimpse of what his life could be, as did Vhalla in their brief time together, and the Hunter found it impossible to go back to the isolated life he had once called his own.
She, however, was sensible. Despite her homelessness and lack of a safe place to lay her head for the night, she did not leap at his (perhaps too generous) offer of housing. It was only when he mentioned her lack of footwear that he got her attention, and the offer of helping her acquire new shoes seemed to (almost) warm the young woman to his offer. It was almost too cute the way that she wiggled her toes on the pavement, and William couldn't deny the simper that spread across his lips. But she was clever, and William found himself very nearly laughing as he promised her a new, beautiful coat of her very own. And perhaps a new one for himself, since it appeared that William would not be receiving his offered coat back any time soon, even if he did buy her a new one. That single promise seemed to earn him enough trust to get her to agree to his offer. It was that promise of harm if he was to hurt her that brought that snort of laughter from him. And that bewildered look that she presented him with only furthered that amusement within him.
"I have no doubt that you're very capable of exactly the things you promise," William said simply, that boyish smile easily lingering on his features as he reassured her that clothing would have to come before he took her to his home. The young woman needed more clothing than her thin dress, and he was entirely unwilling to lose any more of his clothing. Besides, he was sure she would have some sort of snarky response to wearing his own clothes any more than necessity. His gesture down the sidewalk was enough to get them both walking. And while William was well aware of the shivering that plagued the girl, he made no effort to speak or try to distract her from it. Instead, he was far too pressed on the attempt to find her a suitable store to procure more clothing that she might find acceptable. When he finally paused in front of a store, he made careful effort to allow her into the building without touching her.
Once in the store, William found himself entirely out of his element. His offered words to assist her were stated awkwardly, the man shifting on his feet as he eyed the rows and racks of clothing that he would have no idea how to pair. He was grateful, then, for her reassurance that she would require no help other than carrying things. A sigh of relief left his lips as he smiled nervously, nodding his gratitude. "Carrying things is well within my range of abilities," He promised, content in his role to follow her around the store. William hardly paid attention to the fabrics that hung on their hangers until her voice drew his attention to her and the very... white dress she held in her arms. It took him a moment to process her words, the very sentence making the man pause. He'd thought her young - she was a Were, was she not? His senses indicated such, and it wasn't like him to be wrong. And yet Weres were certainly not given the curse of immortality. But that sentence was something he might have spoken, or Sebastian. A thought made by a being who certainly did not appear their age...
His attention was drawn away from his curiosity by the sensation of the dress being shoved abruptly into his arms, the man letting out a soft 'oof' of surprise. His eyes followed her gaze, surprised by the very modern pair of shoes that had caught her attention. But her enthusiasm was contagious, and William easily stepped forward to retrieve her desired heels. He placed them in her arms, relieved to have a role - even if it was only due to the near foot of height that he held over her. William was content to watch her silently for a moment before the curiosity got the better of him and his eyes scanned the young woman skeptically. There were a million questions that came to mind, if only because something seemed... off... about the young woman. But instead, the question that slipped from his lips was a cautious one. "So," He stated conversationally as he watched her. "Where are you from? It sounds like the style is... different where you're from."
