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 (known simply as The Ark) is a sleek superyacht known both for its fight rings and recent...renovations, of sorts. 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.

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.

at my feet you'll bow to me
Tetradore's half-man, half-beast screams burst from his parted lips without being able to hold it back despite his want to do so. The very sound of it was an exotic blend that filled the open space like music to the feline queen's ears. It did not belong to either species, but a unique merge between the two as he shifted painfully back from beast to man. The inhuman strength of the she-devil's unrelenting, tearing hold upon his neck had so easily made her usually quiet pet sing. In that moment, there was no denying who was master here, especially as his form stilled like a helpless kitten who had been scruffed. If only those vicious lessons had lasting effects, but at the very least, she had him exactly where she wanted. Complacent.

Only once Risque was satisfied did she unceremoniously release her grip with a startling suddenness that caused his usually graceful movements to falter, even if he didn't fall. It was then that her inflicted wound drew her sharp eye, only to notice just how messy that wound actually was. His hot alpha blood, taunting her as it trickled in long, thin bloody lines down his muscular back. The tempting scent only beckoned to make a feast out of what was being wasted. It was a pity, a true shame to waste what she knew tasted of power and yet how she didn't want to risk her venom in his system, especially for what she had in store for her naughty little pet. No, she would rather him feel it all, live through it all so that he might remember it with perfect clarity going forward.

She moved around him, every step echoed her dominance and grace, his glare having little effect with his fate already sealed in her mind. Never uninspired, she latched her pale, hypnotic gaze upon that phoenix necklace he wore as her powers had seized him in place. Her affinity had replaced that unrelenting grip of her hand and yet it was a different kind of hold, one that screamed of complete domination over his inner feline and in exchange, him. She would not normally use so much on one being and yet he and his irritating will had left her with no choice but to make a clear statement. Without a hint of warning, her hand snapped forward to reach for the necklace. So simply it was plucked from his neck, feeling it reluctance as it gave way to hang limply across her slender fingertips. It barely took an effort as the clasp broke like ripping a petal from a flower.

That statement within the act was clear. His immortality belonged to her, just as he did. He was far from a free bird like that phoenix represented. No, better not be mistaking that... it was only fitting she put it inside a cage. Those gruesome thoughts echoed in her mind, drawing a slow calculating grin upon her lips.

How she noticed the flutter of his heart, enjoying the sound of it. It only made her want to strike that much harder while she possessed a reaction. His apathy could not hide his traitorous heart, nor the chemicals within an all too human body. She drew in a breath, drawing the scent of his blood and adrenaline, a heady mix she would have relished within if she had not seen a greater goal.

It was then that the she-devil offered him a choice. Not that it was much of one.

Sit. He chose a little too quickly for her not to notice, even though she made no indication that she even heard him or an agreeance to honour his choice. Not that it made much of a difference. Each choice had their downfalls and it gave him the illusion of control before she ripped it away like that very necklace she held. It all ended the same way anyways.

She eyed her pet, those pale eyed boring into him with a cruel assessment. Wasting no more time, that accented voice filled the room. "Face the wall, nose touching, then place your hands behind your back, I want your fingers wrapped your forearms firmly, now." She commanded effortlessly, her rage satisfied for the moment as a foreboding calm seduced her.

"Stay like that. Do not move." She ordered shortly after the previous order had been conceded to. There was no room for mistaking what she wanted, her patience sated with the promise of his impending misfortune, Risque was certain was brought on by his own actions that very night.

Only when satisfied with his obedience, the feline-queen moved away to remove her talons just before she procured a neatly folded, long black rope that she draped over her forearm, plucking one of her favoured blades. She refused to allow him to have use of his hands for what she had planned, even with her powers that could be used to keep him equally bound and still. How she wanted him to truly feel trapped and helpless before her, to serve as reminder of his very place and just who held his strings. She drew toward her feline pet, placing the blade to the side, on a ledge along with that necklace at its side. "One day.." She spoke, her saccharine voice like telling a young one a story. "You will break so thoroughly that you will become the perfect, obedient pet as you were meant to be, mon chat." The feline queen uttered with such certainty of its inevitability just as she had said many times before. "Until then, more drastic measures are in order." A threatening obscurity painted her honied words, marveling in the very way a body could endure so much before it gave out. Tetradore, perhaps one of her more durable beasts.

Cold fingers unravelled the rope with care before sliding it around his neck with a gentleness so that equal parts draped over his muscular shoulders. It sprawled out behind him like a train, perfect for that intricate process. She positioned him like he was merely a doll, ordering him about, to move and do as she pleased. With every bind and knot she wove, made that restrictive hold even more resolute and tighter than it ever needed to be. It was nothing but constricting in every way. Yet how well thought out it had to be, to have either side mirror each other. How this garnered her attention and complete concentration as she move her masterpiece. He was like a fly trapped into her spiderweb of her own intricate design. Even his fingers were knotted and bound, that taut rope around his neck influenced by how much her alpha squirmed.

His body was already stretched to its limit, his discomfort intended. The she-devil then eyed each meticulous knot, the way it restrained his movements. She allowed to fingertips to run over the fabric that bound him so perfectly, wound so tight that only the barest of movements would command even more of his ache.

"Turn." She demanded. "Perfect." She uttered in french.

"Tell me how that feels. Can you move?" How she knew how it felt, she could see his shoulders straining from the tension of it, see the way her ropes dug into his flesh. Those ropes were tight, its hold offering so little give. Just like her and the ever restrictive prison she made for him.
