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.

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.

i long for that feeling to not feel at all

Lucas didn't know what he was wishing for.

And maybe he wasn't even really wishing to begin with. Wishes got you nowhere. If anyone would know, he'd know. And he knew because he spent far too many years of his life waking up to a cold reality check every goddamn day.

It was always something different.

Something awful. Something more. Another death. A problem to solve. A person to find. One more hit, one more blow, one more hour, one more car, one more body, one more chance, one more... whatever. It never stopped. And it never changed.

Lucas has been down this rabbit hole before.

And 'wishing' wasn't part of the ride.

As the penny sank further into the fountain and was lost into its waters, Lucas found himself mildly envious of the little coin's journey. Oh, how he wouldn't give in that very moment to be that fucking penny. To drift, and drift, and drift... and sink somewhere far beyond where anyone would ever bother to reach. To be forgotten. To drown.


It was the real American dream.

There was a tugging sensation in the back of his mind, his sense of smell perking as the scent of some furry animal besides him wafted into the general area. It took him a moment to focus on anything beyond that and by the time he did, any chance to head it off seemed much too late. Words were spoken that were very much closer than he ever would have liked and, unfortunately for the female who had chosen the seat beside him, now had to live with her bad decision from start to finish.

A canine stare is an unnerving thing. Especially coming from a shepherd-of-sorts. They go very still. Every part of them seems to turn into some sort of living statue that breathes and... Lucas? Well he wasn't really any different.

While she was talking about copper and dying fish, Lucas was busy watching her face. Taking in her smell. Listening to how she talked (which was, quite frankly, much too loud for anyone's liking). To be honest, it was all just kind of a low buzz in his head. He wasn't particularly interested in who she was or what she was saying - but he didn't need to be in order to quietly size up her like some sort of inconvenient obstacle that would, eventually, need to be removed.

Even after her guesses were guessed and question posed, Lucas's expression stayed level. It very much betrayed the tempestuous feelings bubbling up inside him, brewing like some thick layer of tar as they slowly attempted to break the surface.

It was extremely apparent that he in no way felt obligated to oblige her question with an answer or with his time. Instead, the cigarette was brought back up to his chaffed lips for another long, drawn-out pull of his smoke, followed by a billowy exhale that was in no means deterred in any way from her direction.

It was a good solid couple of minutes of utter silence and staring before the were dog felt the need to say a single damn word.

Usually people left by now. But after this much time? He supposed he could give her a little bite - if you could really even call it that.

"Okay," Lucas said blandly. His voice was quiet but not soft. Matter-of-fact. Gravelly, like every single syllable that came out of his mouth was coated in years and years worth of smokers lung. "I won't tell you I'm a rabbit."
