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.

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.

South


Her teeth nibbled delicately upon the bottom of her lip as Chizue considered for the millionth time how ill thought out her plan for feeding surely was. Perhaps it was best to return to her home rather than attempt to take on the boisterous crowd of the boys. She was oblivious, in that moment, to the way her hesitancy showed within her very demeanor as she lingered uncertainly within her spot. Any other vampire would have undoubtedly jumped at the opportunity to feast unhindered - any other vampire but Chizue. The sudden offer for assistance from the seemingly young girl in front of her caught the demure Asian off guard. Such a willingness to help from an unfamiliar vampire was...almost unheard of. Their species was not often inclined to be terribly friendly, much less to go out of their way to assist another with something that should come so naturally for them. A soft breath left the young woman's lips as she considered her options before slowly nodding in agreement. Some assistance would certainly be better than Chizue's continued starvation, even if it was self-inflicted from a persistent paranoid fear.

The sort of 'help' she needed, however, was perhaps a bit atypical then most of her kind. There was no need to scatter the group of boys, no need for a single drop of blood to be spilled or a single scream of terror. All Chizue needed was one, singular touch. How quickly the young child before her made that connection - one that most did not often do. "You...you've met others?" She inquired with clear credulousness. This was the first time the young vampire had ever been told there were more vampires like her! Ones that fed on emotions and life itself rather than the red substance that flowed through the veins of all. How many questions she suddenly found herself having! What had this other psychic vampire like? Had the child kept in touch with them? Could she find them again? Her attention snapped back to the present as the child-vampire saw fit to introduce herself properly. Her own name was offered immediately in response, those polite niceties so long since drilled into her. "It is a pleasure to meet you, Anna-Marie. I am Yumi Chizue."

She watched as Anna-Marie slipped from the swing, her feet planted firmly on the ground as the seat still moved gently back and forth behind her. The deep, chocolate hue of her gaze turned towards the bench and the boy that Anna-Marie gestured to, only for the Asian woman to nodd in clear understanding. The child-like vampire wasted no time in heading towards the oblivious group of boys. She seemed so...purposeful. So full of a confidence that Chizue hadn't had since before her turning. Chizue watched as Anna-Marie approached, wholly unnoticed, only to stand in front of the boys as they stared so attentively down at their phones. Her keen ears were capable of picking up the child's voice, even from this distance as Anna-Marie made every effort to seem exactly like the child she looked rather than the centuries old vampire she so clearly was. The boy's attention upon her, however, was the exact cue that Chizue needed. Softly, she inhaled, so clearly steeling herself as the girl reminded herself that this was really no different then walking on stage at the concerns she used to perform in. She nodded to her own mental reassurance as she stepped forward, moving easily behind the boys and towards the bench that they sat upon.

Her head reached out shakily, only to brush gently against the boy's shoulder with a featherlight touch. The very vibrancy of his aura was near intoxicating as she drew it in towards herself, letting that youthful recklessness overwhelm her demure persona. That shift within the girl's demeanor was near instantaneous as she presented the confused boy with an easy smile. "Oh, you found her! Anna, I was looking everywhere for you! Sorry, I hope she wasn't like....a bother or something." She rolled her eyes as if she couldn't be bothered to be terribly concerned with her young charge. "Come on, Anna, let's go." She held out her hand to the seemingly young child, her fingers finally leaving the boy's shoulder. He yawned, that stealing of his life force was surely tiring to the boy and yet, with his aura now so firmly her's, the Chizue version of him cared particularly little.
