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.

Malia always liked how down to earth and laid back Henry was. Where she was ninety to nothing, he was always relaxed and logical. Guess that's what made him her safe place to land. He grounded her. The woman smiled as Henry held open the door for her, giving him a smirk before she walked into the reptile house. The minute she got inside, however, her nose wrinkled up and she sniffed the air. "Wow...you guys stink." Following her friend's gaze, Malia stepped over to look at the snake with him, though she was more about listening as he sighed before admitting he still wasn't happy as she'd like him to be. Her lips scowled as he brought up Sterling. Her heart broke for him all over again every time he brought up the man who left. "I'm sorry." She murmured softly, her brown eyes genuine. The WerePanther admitted he didn't spend a lot of time on the new Ark and she nodded. "Understandable."
When she couldn't help it anymore, Malia turned to throw her arms around him. She expected him to tense up, so not used to being shown the affection he deserved, but she couldn't help her overwhelming need to comfort him when he was sad. She buried her head in his side, not caring if he hugged her back, just needing him to feel not so alone, at least for a minute or two. "I've got an extra den in the woods if you need a place to stay." She mumbled after a little bit, though she didn't really expect him to take her up on it. He never seemed as comfortable in his animal form as she was. Of course, he had his reasons.
