Default Office of the Department Head, Airey Flamsteed


Oval in shape, the office of the Department Head is, in one word, quite sterile. The walls are glistening white and the carpet resembles marble more so than fabric, giving off a ridiculously clean vibe. While he is not exactly obsessive compulsive about cleanliness, Department Head Airey Flamsteed highly values organization and keeps everything in a specific location. Needless to say, if one of his quills is at an odd angle ... he will notice. The cabinets above his desk are nearly invisible against the wall and are filled with all sorts of reference books and historical tomes collected himself. The surface of his desk is mostly empty except for some black screens whose use is unknown and a comfortable looking pillow where the man's pet rocks, Pebbles and Boulder, tend to rest. Beside this is a plant in a unique looking planter.

On the backside of the likewise pearly white door (the main door that is as there are many hidden along the walls here leading to the various Chambers and Rooms within the Department) are a few framed pieces of abstract line and paint splatter artwork that Professor Flamsteed has collected over the years along with a drawing given to him by a former student in a black frame just to the left of another drawing, this one signed, in another black frame. Above these two is yet another large gifted piece of artwork also in a black frame. There is a white sofa up against one of the walls with a pet bed on the floor beside it where Pebbles and Boulder sleep when not sharing the pillow on the desk. To the right of the white sofa and is a white closet where Professor Flamsteed keeps a few freshly pressed suits from his extensive collection, just in case, and to the left of this is a rather impressive looking tie display case. Located opposite of Flamsteed's desk is yet another clear display case, but this one is filled with all sorts of muggle science fiction models. Perhaps the most interesting feature this room boasts are the menagerie of floating magical holographic images - celestial bodies, numbers, equations, figures - whose gentle glow provide the room's lighting.

Access to this office is granted by speaking its name in the main circular rotating room serving as the Entry Chamber to the entire Department. While drop ins are always welcome, the Department Head is a very busy man and prefers that appointments be made prior.

Please read the thread description before posting here! This isn't strictly a public thread, but anyone is welcome to have their character knock on the door and assume they have passed through the Entry Chamber.

.....okay. So perhaps removing the enchantments had not been a good idea because the screaming was entirely unhelpful and added nothing to the investigation. That is, until Adam began rambling off in German again. If only his days as an astronaut candidate had mandated that he learn that instead of Russian.

"....do any of you speak German enough to know what he just said?" he inquired at the law enforcement gathered in his office. Because he was utterly clueless and it was only elevating his frustration levels.

He was quick to pick up on Miss Cambridge's disappointment, he knew his former pupil well enough. Perhaps that had been a bit of an influence into how he had approached the delivery of his patronus. Who knew. Ahem. "None are missing," he clarified. "Every Encephalon is in the tank and accounted for." And then he paused, those dots that had been connecting earlier now needing to be analyzed in his head before a verbal display. "There were eight of us that day performing maintenance. Myself, five Unspeakables, and Miss Baines." Naturally, Adam had been one of those as they had already discussed. "...six of the Encephalons have since become completely docile. In fact, inanimate would be the more accurate of terminology. Still alive and still functioning, but merely adrift in the tank. Nousists had attributed this to the solution needing modifications and that they would return to normal once that process had been complete..."

Whatever conversation and thinking was going on was interrupted by first crying and then screaming in German. The silencing charm being removed by Flamsteed though not really helping in this case. It appeared as if the captive man might not be able to explain...at least in English...at the moment. Simon meerly shook his head at the question on language, it never was his forte in what he'd learned over the years.

But there was something else that he might be a personal expert in.

"Could they have become docile for any other reasons?" he asked, despite what the supposed experts said. "Could they have reacted to any interaction with the eight of you...becoming calm as Adam here becomes...less than calm?" He knew where his train of thought was going and he had to keep from groaning. Possession was a subject Simon hated from his past, his last year at Hogwarts a nightmare because of one visit on the mysterious pirate ship that had shown up at the Black Lake.

"Could the encephalons be making Mr. Geralf act this way?"

Honestly, he was starting to feel as disappointed as Alexa sounded. He was just better at hiding it. He was so ready to investigate something dark and twisted. Instead, what they were presented with was a bunch people messing with something that should never have been messed with. Sigh. Absolutely not what he'd gone into the Auror field for.

As for the German being spoken? If it were French, yes. German? No. "Maybe the head Encephalon's calling them home," Ronan snarked, having already reached the conclusion that Simon was now voicing. Oi.

Airey was actively resisting the urge to have an 'ET phone home' moment. But he refrained. Now was not the time for his brand of humor. At least not the time that it would be appreciated by anyone other than himself and thus the department head refrained.

"I wouldn't call any of that out of the realm of possibility," he nodded seriously. "Over the years, they have been used as a tool for the research and experimentation of Legilimency and magic always leaves its traces and has its consequences." It was as simple and complicated as muggle physics and it was a correlation that he was presently writing a book on. A topic that had, many years back, first helped him poke his foot through the door with the Department of Mysteries. He wondered where that man was now...

But he was dangerously drifting off topic.

"A group mind, if you will forgive the science fiction reference, has developed among them." And that was really as much information as he was willing to share with the law enforcement officers. The details of such were privy to Unspeakables. His bright blues glanced back at Adam. "We could escort him to the Thought Chamber."

So who wanted to volunteer for that? Because Airey was not about to mess his suit up further.

Yep, this really was as disappointing as she'd come to think it was. Airey Flamsteed you owed her a dead body later--or an organized crime syndicate in need of taking down. Something to make the running just now worth it. For now, the Head Auror stood silently listening to the others. German wasn't something she'd ever taken an interest in learning, even with her travels and the languages she'd picked up as a result so....no.

It also didn't escape her notice how........relatively vague Airey was being in the moment. Sure, have your department cause a stir then only half fill in the blanks. Made perfect sense, she was totally on board.

As on board as she was with sticking around.

"Carter can handle it. Consider it more training." Low level requirement needed. No need to waste useful manpower when the YATI could do it. As Head of Security, Simon likely had actual things to do and if this really was just brains wanting to go home, it didn't require much. "Rider can accompany him to make sure he doesn't botch it up, unless you wanna, Simon." Whoever wanted to babysit the YATI while he babysat the employee. Just so long as it wasn't her.

Low skill requirement or not, Carter was still in training. She wasn't entirely irresponsible enough to just let him go alone. "If there's nothing else, I've got some stuff to finish up." Stuff that, in retrospect she would've been a decent way into by now were it not for this oh so disappointing trip down to level 9. She nodded to each before heading out.

Well then. Miss Cambridge had spoken and, as Head Auror, she knew how to delegate duties to her fellow Law Enforcement officers. Airey was about to offer further comment on the subject when a silver patronus in the shape of a fox came prancing into his office. He always found it amusing that Maddox's had a fox instead of another feline, but no matter.

And judging by the patronus' message, heading to the Thought Chamber was precisely what was required.

"Shut the door when you leave," he instructed, his lanky limbs already bounding towards the door. "Secure Gerulf and to the Thought Chamber." Now.

Then, without another word, the department head stepped out of his office and moved swiftly through the corridors towards the chamber in question.

Carter agreed with his line of thought, no matter the level the snarkiness that appeared in his tone. Simon took it to mean that like Alexa, he wasnít much interested in the case now that it wasnít sounding to be involving dangerous criminals or espionage. Ah the thoughts of grandeur aurors liked to live by. He himself would be remaining on the case for it was affecting the safety and thus in ways security of the building.

And then the department head didnít deny the possibility that the situations werenít connected which only made Simon feel it was important to take care of. As for escorting, the security head resumed a position near the encaged man, debating if the cage was a little much when there were other ways to ensure Geruff came with. However, Alexa stepped in an order Carter to take the job which came out as an order from the head auror to her trainee which put Simon in an awkward position since he and Alexa were technically equals despite him having seniority in the department through time.

ďI would prefer the spotĒ he confirmed, taking his own charge of the situation and letting Ryder return to what he had been interrupted from when they were speaking earlier. Carter could still handle the manual work as they moved while Simon served as back-up and babysitter. The second patronus put an urgency to the case and with a look to the younger man, he moved to follow Airey along with the YATI and unspeakable.

The young Auror-in-training actually would've appreciated the E.T. reference right about now. Or even an Invasion of the Body-Snatchers. As for the Legilimency stuff.....ugh. More things that really should not be messed with. Not enough witches and wizards seemed to understand the whole 'magic leaves traces' thing or why it was sometimes better to leave some things alone. Something he lamented every day.

He also noticed the vagueness coming from the department head. And he didn't really like it.

Also, nice boss. Pair him with possibly the dumbest, most clueless person in the department. Who already hated him, by the way. And was wayyy more likely to 'muck it up' than he was. Luckily, Simon offered to accompany him instead. Was Ronan's relief obvious? Because he was relieved. But about the cage.....he still had his doubts that it was really necessary. Still, he wordlessly levitated it behind him, careful not to jostle it too much as he followed Airey to the Thought Chamber.

In response to the owl received in his office, an overstuffed opossum waddled its way through the door and flopped over on to its side for a few beats before lazily rolling over on to its back. An impractical corporal form to be sure, the message 'spoken' from the silvery creature in the voice of one Charles Hollingberry was no less clear.

"Trouble at Hogwarts School at Witchcraft and Wizardry in the form of a pest infestation and accompanying unknown illness infecting students. Assemble in my office immediately."

And then, while still playing dead, the patronus dissipated into thin air.
