Default Curse-Breaker HQ & Trading Offices



The Curse-Breaker HQ is on an upper level of Gringotts Bank. The Curse-Breakers are always busy whether home or abroad. They each have their own office space, though a few of the apprentice Curse-Breakers share an Office. Its a little lighter and brighter here compared to the rest of the building and as such many of the other witches and wizards who work at Gringotts have managed to snag offices up here too rather than in the dark marble corridors where their Goblin colleagues can be found.

This is not a public area. Official business or invitation only.

OOC: OOC: While you are allowed to roleplay here, please be sure your character has official business and has entered the bank through the entrance way and main hall. It is best not to post here without your character being invited to do so.

If you have a Curse-Breaker character on the officially approved list you may RP here any time.

Although Levi had been a curse-breaker for a while, he still couldn't say whether he preferred to be abroad on assignment or at home working in the office. Travelling was definitely more interesting and exciting, but that kept him away from his daughter for much too long. Little Gwen was the light of his life. But being in the office often proved to be boring and he was just not the type for paperwork, even if it meant he was home for his family more often.

And he had to make time for some necessary paperwork today, paperwork that he had been putting off till pretty much the last minute. As he was recording the inventory of artifacts and their subsequent counter-curses from his last excursion, Levi paused to look out the window near his desk. A bright, sunny day. A rare perfect summer day, or at least it looked like it from his office window. Perhaps he could message Etta later about bringing Gwen out to meet him after work so they could all get some ice cream.

Septimus hadn’t quite known what to expect when he applied for the internship at Gringotts. Granted it wasn’t the more exciting travel and field work that his father could tell about from his younger cursebreaker days. The travel he had decided to pick up again every once and a while now as he found himself a widower with his son more than old enough to be on his own. But it still was a path that Septimus had found he wasn’t bad in. Who knew what the future would hold.

On a particularly slow day for his internship tasks, he was looking around the office for something to do spotting one of the full cursebreakers. “Need any assistance,” Septimus offered. Even if it seemed to be paperwork and nothing but the paperwork at first glance. Anything would be better than nothing and maybe he’d learn something new. After all that was one of the main purposed of the internship in the first place.

Penelope Bolt, the head cursebreaker, suddenly burst through the entry carrying a large parcel on one hand and using the wand held in her other to levitate a large steaming urn ahead of her through the doorway. "Hullo, everybody!" she called out cheerfully as she proceeded onward to her desk and lowered the urn carefully down. Pulling out a wad of paper napkins out of a pocket, she set them down next to the bag, and then drew out a stack of cardboard cups from another deep pocket. "Chelsea buns and coffee, if anyone wants any," she announced as she promptly tore open the parcel, picked out a large bun with one of the napkins, and proceeded to take a large bite out of it."

Levi was normally pretty focused on his job when he was working, but the intern had caught him in a rare moment of being lost in thought. He snapped out of his reverie at the sound of the voice and looked over at the younger man nearby. "Hmm?" In his younger days, the answer probably would have been no as Levi was stubborn in his capabilities of doing things himself. But he had mellowed out a bit in the past several years and besides, he had come to realize the benefits of having interns around. They could do they boring grunt work, plus he could impart some of his vast knowledge. Something he often liked to do.

"Oh, sure.." he began, sliding the paperwork towards the intern, "Septimus, isn't it?" He had at least gotten familiar with who the interns were when he was in the office. "These artifacts need filing, then cross-referenced with their counter-curses," he informed him, gesturing to the list he'd begun. And if Septimus could work on that, he could be free to check into the research for his next trip. "Let me know if you have any questions though."

Levi had just reached across his desk for his travel journal to map out his next itinerary when he heard his boss greeting everyone as she entered the room. "Ms. Bolt," he nodded to her in greeting, then looked over at her offerings. "I never say no to a good cup of coffee." Grabbing his wand, he performed a series of intricate movements, the incantations silent, and magically prepared himself a cup of coffee without having to get up from his seat. Once the urn was done filling his mug and a spot of cream was added, he levitated the mug over to his desk. Magic was a wonderful thing.

Septimus was beginning to think he had seriously interrupted something when there was a delay in any response. But then it was to the positive so he could relax and nod in confirmation of his name. “Yes, that’s me,” he agreed, accepting the paperwork handed to him. At least he had that going for him, not forgotten in a sea of namelessness. “Of course…I can do that,” he remarked with another nod. Easy enough if not tedious and requiring one to be extra careful. You hardly wanted important pieces lost somewhere in the shuffle. “I will keep that in mind.” Better to be aware ahead of time whether you’d get your head bitten off for asking things or not.

About to get to it, his attention was brought to the door of the office as one head cursebreaker walked into the room in a flurry of activity. “Good day,” Septimus said, returning her greeting. “Thanks,” he added, gathering a couple of napkins and a bun to bring with him to a workstation near the artifact holding. He’d wait on the coffee when he wasn’t working over paperwork. He certainly didn’t want to risk spilling over his task, the intern taking a seat as he looked over what he had to work with.

Penelope smiled as her treats were accepted. She turned to place her half-eaten bun atop a bit of scratch paper on her desk, then picked up a sheaf of papers that were piled up in her in-box, a few of them rising up in the air to get her attention. Turning back to her co-workers she began to talk with them, alternately looking at her papers and up at whoever she was talking to. Every once in a while, she levitated a document over in her "To Do" pile; others went in the "To Be Filed" box. Now and then she muttered a spell under her breath and the offending document exploded with a brief and tiny flame, then disappeared from existence, leaving only a thin trail of smoke behind.

Well, Septimus, how is the internship going, eh? Ah, they've got you doing paperwork, have they? Well, that's part of the job, too. And you never know what you'll find in there--a lot of interesting things have come to light because someone was paying attention. Let me know if you need anything, then." Poof! went another document.

"Wotcher, Levi--how's that daughter of yours, then? Bet you're glad to be in the home office for a bit, so you can spend some time at home. But I know you--you can't stay here long. What do you have in the works next?" Penelope briefly looked down from Levi's face and started to sail a document over to be filed, but then stopped and looked at it for a moment longer, a small frown forming between her brows.

Levi had been fairly confident in his knowledge of the intern's name, just like he was confident in his knowledge about pretty much everything, so he simply nodded at the confirmation. And he trusted that Septimus was skilled enough in his education and training thus far to be able to handle the paperwork he had given him without any supervision, so he turned his attention momentarily to his coffee as it came levitating over. Delicious.

He leaned back in his chair, glancing over at Penelope when she asked him about his daughter, earning her a wistful smile. "Oh Gwenny's doing great. Might have Etta bring her by the Alley when I get done with work." It was a nice day that he was sure would turn into a nice evening and then maybe they could have a nice family outing.

As to where he was going next... He paused and sipped his coffee. "I need to get out to Bhutan next. Not sure when that will be though." Soon, likely.

Septimus had just about finished with the first item on the list, the one Levi had started, when he heard his name, causing his attention to drift to the woman inquiring about him. “It’s going well…” At least he thought it was from his side of the situation. Surely she and the rest of the more senior cursebreakers, including the other man, would have a better idea of whether he was meeting all their requirements and wishes.

“Yes, though I don’t mind,” he remarked truthfully. It still put his mind to use and got him involved in the field he was looking to continue in. It wasn’t like it wasn’t how his father had started, so he saw it as a step and not beneath him. Plus as she said, one never knew what one would find within the records that could lead to other more interesting things. "Of course," he assured her with a nod as he filed what was done and moved onto the next entry.

"Look here," Penelope said suddenly, holding out the paper she'd been reading so that Levi could see it. "It says here that the Goblet of Uluru is missing from the treasury it's been stored in for safekeeping." The silver goblet had been credited with a number of strange and unfortunate incidents from Australia to Brighton, but it was supposed to have been safe and locked away since its recovery some years ago. Penelope didn't think it was likely that the thing had just been mislaid or misfiled. Stolen would be her guess. But by whom, and for what purpose? That thing could cause a lot of trouble if it was let loose back into the world.

Levi glanced over at Septimus briefly as he worked through the paperwork, unbothered by the younger man's short answers. He was the same way when he was working - focused and not inclined for lengthy conversations.

But his own thoughts of travel to Bhutan were interrupted when Penelope spoke again. He turned to look at the newspaper she held up, his eyes falling on the headline and his brow knit in concern. "That's rather alarming," he began, his mind already working out scenarios. "Was there any more information about it?" That might at least give them a hint about the scenario they'd have to deal with.

Left to his own devices, Septimus focused on the task he had been given to hand. The intern made the notes and the various categorizing that were needed before he would move to file them. He did his best to tune out the senior cursebreakers as undoubtedly what they were handling was something outside his limited purview but when a sudden exclamation was made, it grabbed his attention. Something missing?! That definitely wasn’t good…alarming as was said. He was curious as he moved onto his latest item but kept silent with one ear open.

Pay no attention to the eavesdropping intern.

Penelope was already scrutinizing the paper for details, not that one could trust papers. "Hmm....It doesn't say much....Goblet discovered missing while doing routine maintenance...no sign of a break-in...matter under investigation..... Penelope read a bit more and looked up again. "I suppose we'd better talk to the curator at the Madhm Treasury over in Crawley and see if there are more details. Whoever took it has probably gone to ground, though--it's far too 'hot' to try to sell openly." It was too 'hot' an object to have hanging around in one's possession as far as Penelope was concerned. But it sounded interesting--and right on their own doorstep, too!"
