Lyrerius is a thriving city tucked into a bay on the west coast of North America. You can find everything you need - schools, parks, libraries, churches, hospitals - and it even boasts its own college. There's a small film studio in the downtown district, and tiny shops hold wondrous treasures.
The hustle and bustle of the day is quickly emptied by night. Strange things happen with the sun goes down. Most humans are unaware of what goes on after dark, but know enough to stay off the streets unless there's an emergency.
The other people that live in the city are everything but human. If you move here, odds are you're one of us. We're everywhere - those of us who can go out in the sunlight have human jobs and go to school with human children. We even have an inside partnership with the human mayor of the city. There's an underground connection to every major building in town, and that's what you use if you can't go out during the day.
It's running smoothly, but that won't last for too much longer.
Although the humans currently outnumber us, we're growing in population and can't always hide our powers. This isn't known for being a tolerant city, and many humans openly hate others. If we can just overcome our distrust of each other...
