West

The western part of the city is often home to the poorer residents. Here there is a grunginess that permeates the town from the graffiti on the once cleaned brick buildings to the broken and unmaintained architecture. Crime runs high within the western half of town, making it the home of supernatural gangs of illicit activities. Such activities are rarely reported, however, and most residents are distrustful of individual's of authorities, and often let the powerful supernatural beings sort things out amongst themselves. Be careful wandering the Western streets after the sun falls.

Black Market

Just like any city - Sacrosanct is not without it's deep, dark underbelly. Hidden in the graffiti-ridden streets of the West, behind closed warehouse doors, lies the Black Market. Forever moving, it's nearly impossible to find without knowing someone who knows someone. Anything you desire can be brought for a hefty price within the Black Market - be it drugs, weapons, or lives.

What You'll Find Here

Edge of the Circle

Cull & Pistol

Hidden within the dark alleyways of the Western Ward, Cull & Pistol is a dim, often smoky bar. With a small variety of bottled and craft beers, Cull & Pistol is a quaint little neighborhood joint. With its no-frills moto, the dingy bar offers little more than liquor, music from an old jukebox, and a few frequently occupied pool tables.

Bartender Raylin Chike

Noah's Ark

Resting upon the harbor, Noah's Ark appears to be little more than an abandoned cargo ship. Accessible from an entrance hidden in the shadows, The Ark is a veritable Were-playground that specializes in fighting tournaments for all creatures great and small. With both singles and doubles tournaments to compete in, the title of Ark Champion is hotly contested amongst the Were population. If anything illegal is going on in the city it's sure to be happening within the back rooms or behind the ring-side bar. Note: This is a Were only establishment. All other species will be swiftly escorted out.

Syn

Within the turbulent industrial district lies this club. The warehouse doesn't look like much on the outside but it provides a memorable experience from the state of the art lighting, offbeat Victorian-inspired artwork, comfortable black leather lounges, and the infamous 'black light' room. There is a wide variety of alcohol that lines the shelves of both of the magical and ordinary variety. It is a common stomping ground for the supernatural who want to let loose and dance the night away to the music that floods the establishment. Humans are most welcome if they dare.

i'm not ashamed of my scars, i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.

"Yes, Isolt is nice, she is always very nice. Vampires and Weres have similar tendencies. We're protective, possessive, and can be influenced by our animal side. Now, I know Vampires can't shift into animals, but their mindset is primal like ours at times."


Although Vampires and Weres were different some believed that the two were connected. And that wasn't just because in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, the vampire was capable of turning into a Werewolf. Both had animalistic tendencies. One was cursed to live for eternity and the other would only live for a typical lifespan. One could move around freely during the night and day while the other was forced to only roam at night. One could eat any kind of food where the other lived on blood. There were a lot of differences between the two, but there were a few similarities. She had heard about Vampires taking Weres as their personal pets or even guards when they slept during the day. Although she had seen with Azrael that those rumors she heard were actually real. Using Weres for their blood, pet, or worse. Maybe there was one other thing on the list that separated the two supernatural creatures â€" one still allowed their humanity to influence them.


Raven was glad to hear that Alexis hadn't stopped reading the book she let her borrow. She knew it was a bit of an odd book, but it was a rather good and entertaining story. Best part was that there was a female character, Catherine...Catherine 2. The author took elements from both the perfect maiden and the femme fatale to create a new kind of heroine, a beautiful strong-willed, light-hearted and fierce woman that knew herself. The woman was able to think constructively for herself about how she felt and what she wanted. It was something she admired and she assumed Alexis would to...once she finished it. Turning her head to focus on her golden tea set she used her telekinesis to prepare the girl her own cup of tea. Letting the cup float over towards her, she allowed the were-fox to grab it. With the weather being so nice outside the lupine knew the others in their little family were running about, enjoying it. Although she was pleased to spend some time with Alexis it had been a rather rough winter that the girl would surely enjoy being outside soaking up the sun than being here within this room. Her accusation that she was in here for the same reason as Alexis was answered with a light chuckle and shake of her head.


"You sure about that? I'm on schedule to do rounds of the territory tonight. I'm doing some light reading over this ancient Greece stuff, and hopefully I'll fall asleep. Although sadly that is not occurring, what I'm reading is quite interesting."


Gesturing for the woman to come and sit in the chair on the other side of the table she reopened her book looking down at the old pages to find the spot she last looked at. As Alexis walked past her, there was a familiar scent on her that belonged to a male she hardly knew. The scent belonged to a Dark Hunter that was walking beside Alexis the night of her wedding. His name started with an A and he didn't talk much, but Alexis seemed quite happy with him. Turning the page, without lifting her eyes, she casually asked her friend a simple question.


"So, are you ever going to let us meet the Dark Hunter you spend time with? I can smell him on you and I see him around that café sometimes."
