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.

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.

It would seem that her little secret worked to help Mira control her lava with 'happy thoughts.' Truly, what could make anyone happier than hearing the news that someone was expecting a child? Both humans and animals understood the importance of a child. However, females were more prone to feeling joyful when it came to offspring. Mira needed a pretty good distraction and Raven was quite pleased with herself that it worked. As Mira began to order her around she couldn't help, but she her head bemused by the whole situation. As the lava began to recede from the large gaping hole, she easily leapt through with her shadows providing her a little bit more protection from the extremely hot metal. Already pressing the garage door button to get it to move upwards, she moved down the ramp barking at the freed souls to get a move on. As they all started to help one another load up in the truck she moved over back to Mira, looking through that gaping hole in the garage door. Both ears folded backwards, feeling uneasy as she saw those gigantic white dogs struggling through the fallen cages, attempting to make their way over with their vampire counterparts attempting to following. Looking over to her friend she suggested the woman to conjure up a good distraction, one that would make their enemies incapable of following them or the freed souls.


Between the two of them Mira had the power to cause destruction with her lava. Raven knew that if her other half took control...it was possible that the wrong people could be killed, and the she-wolf couldn't add more red in her already full ledger. Slowly she nodded in an agreement to her packmates' urgency that she get out of there. Although she didn't want to leave the woman all alone here either. What if she got captured? Tetradore would be extremely furious with her. With a gentle whimper she took a step forward wanting to stay put. Seeing her eyes though made her stop heading towards her. Instead she stood still whimpering as she looked to Mira and then back at their oncoming foes. The fur on her neck started to stick up. Black lips pulled back to reveal her sharp white teeth, bearing them in frustration. Blue-grey eyes up towards Mira's own golden ones, giving her a very firm look. With a snarl, a deeper voice rumbled from the usual soft-spoken she-wolf.


"You will come back."


There was no other option. They would both be going home together, or not at all. Sure their respected counterparts would be extremely upset, but she knew she couldn't leave a fellow pack member behind. It wouldn't be right. No on deserved to be here...surely the punishment they would receive by the owners of this establishment would be absolutely terrifying. As the truck attempted to move forward she followed after them exiting the garage only to look back for a moment at Mira, and then scampered towards her car. Allowing that shift to take over, she managed to open the car starting the engine up. Keeping an eye for Mira she bit her lip, achingly waiting. All she could hear were the loud booming sounds and smoke starting to appear just around the corner. Raven couldn't help, but whoop when she saw Mira coming out of there. Unlocking the passenger door, with her telekinesis, she opened the door and threw out the girls' pants to her, so she could change. As soon as Mira slid into her seat, Raven put her foot to the accelerator, encouraging the dark blue car to move. With a snort and roll of her eyes she replied quite teasingly.


"Life? You do mean lives right?"


Blue-grey eyes slid in her direction as she gave the girl a wink, and then pressed her foot harder to make that car fly out of the parking lot and towards that large hill to get out of there. As the car began its steady climb up she looked briefly to the rearview mirror, seeing the building start to go up in smoke as the ground continued to tremble from the explosions going off. A bit alarmed she looked over to Mira, noticing how the girl was smiling to herself, gleefully proud of her work. With a nod she continued to keep the car steady. Once they made it to the very top she allowed her foot to go all the way, the pedal meeting the floor, as they flew off with a cloud of dirt behind them. Ravens knuckles turned very white as she kept a firm hold on the wheel. They needed to get as much distance from here as possible. When she was with Azrael, his Dark Hunter friend seemed to work with those vampires. Dark Hunters were capable of coming out in the sunlight. As Mira began to try and pry more information about her pregnancy out of her, Raven sighed as she shook her head for a moment.


"I...I think so. I'm three weeks late, and I've been feeling a bit nauseated at times. I read online that I shouldn't share the news after the first trimester, because it's possible I could lose it. Just... don't tell anyone. Once the first trimester is over I'll tell Tobi, and then...everyone else."


The very idea of her possibly being pregnant was exciting and terrifying all at once. Raven could feel Mira's eyes on her, drilling into her, almost as if this integration wasn't quite over yet. With a sigh she murmured quite softly.


"I have an appointment in a few weeks to confirm and just...go over everything. I'm...I'm going to need to help."


For a moment she turned her head to look at Mira, eyeing her softly with a bit of sadness. Was she happy about the possibility of having a child of her own? Of course. Although raising the child would be a bit difficult. After all, her mate was...different. Raven was sure he would be quite capable of being a good Father, but there were some things he may just be...unable to do. Getting up in the middle of the night to feed the baby, change the baby's diaper, attending those pregnancy classes with her. It would be difficult, and she knew she couldn't do it alone, but at the same time she couldn't ask members of the pack to pick up the slack. The pack would help, as they would need to, but she couldn't ask any of them to do more. Staying quiet she returned her focus on the road, eyeing the speedometer and the rear view mirror, satisfied they weren't being followed she would allow the speed to return to a normal highway speed. As Mira talked about her sex life with their Alpha, she was distracted by that comment, jerking sharply to the left over the middle lane. Catching herself she moved back into her correct lane, looking at her and then the road.


"Really? When did you two start sleeping together? Depending upon your answer, Jackal owes me money. So, does this mean you two are a thing, or have you two not talked about that?"
