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 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.

His viking training should have alerted him that he was being watched, but Erik was distracted with the thought of vengeance so close in the air. Only when he heard footsteps coming toward him with purpose, did the Swedish vampire lift his gaze to meet that of the man coming his way. His eyes narrowed first in confusion before a single brow lifted, taking in the physique of the man who spoke. He let him get the words out, his lips ever so slightly tilting in the corners as he leaned back and slowly folded the paper before setting it down on the bench beside him. "And where should I be? Don't you have a shift to finish?" He tilted his head as he watched the other man, amusement barely glittering in those ocean blue eyes as he decided to play the game and see what happened. He could smell the difference in the scent to know this wasn't the same man he'd been watching. That was obviously a human. He could practically taste the blood in his veins from twenty feet away, yet this man had the dead blood of a vampire running through his.
Still, it was curious. What was this creature? A shapeshifter? A witch with a potion for cloning? And why did they care what he was up to? It might make for an interesting night, though he did have other plans in mind. His gaze slipped back toward the bar where the human had disappeared back inside. He'd work his shift till about 3 o'clock tomorrow morning so it wasn't like Erik had much to do for the next few hours. He turned his gaze back to the man before him, wondering if he was even talking to a man or a woman. Color him intrigued. The viking brought his arms up to the top of the bench, spreading them out behind him as he leaned back. "Why do you think I'm watching you?"
