Default Chamber of Codes


The Chamber of Codes contains the extensive library containing all of the information and research gathered from the work that the Department of Mysteries has uncovered since it's inception. Photos, actual artifacts, a warded bell jar containing a broken timeturner, countless tomes, grimoires and records fill the space - including, a certain book of fairytales. All Unspeakables may use the archives to further your research. Visitors to the Department of Mysteries will need to be granted permission by their Department Head and clearance by the Department Head of Mysteries before using this Chamber.

This Chamber is more than simply archives as Unspeakables tasked with deciphering and decoding of objects and texts written in mysterious languages or codes are also stationed here. Containing numerous wooden cubicle-like desks and chairs designed with the acoustics of this chamber in mind, for sound is one of the most important things when studying a language, even if a dead one. Welcome to the Chamber of Codes, a room dedicated to the In addition to the curved ceiling and echo-absorbing walls, the room also contains several desks with recording devices, revolving tools for decoding, and plenty of parchment and quills. Meanwhile a cogged and metallic device which looks something like a Lorenz cipher sits alone on one of the desks.

Toward the back of the room a perfectly round indention holds a roulette of symbols for deciphering things that like the Phaistos disk contain ancient knowledge. Some of which detail magical history.

Indigo loved his job. And he loved this chamber. It made him feel so at peace. It was generally quiet, with only other cryptographers doing their work and the occasional visitor using the archive. He hadn't been working there for long, but it was already so familiar.

Indigo had been working on deciphering a relic, hyperfocusing until he realized that his neck was stiff and his back was sore. Which meant he should probably take a little break. He stretched and then stood to take a little walk around the archive. There were so many things that he hadn't managed to see all of it yet, and he always enjoyed just wandering the chamber and checking things out.

It was always something. Always.

Sometimes Airey found himself wondering if he was getting to old for all of this, but it was a moment that passed quickly enough and a sentiment only brought on by the fact that there were now two beings in this world that referred to him as grandpa. Was he touched? Absolutely. Did he feel his heart strings tugged constantly. Certainly. Had he had a mild meltdown in the mirror the other day as evidence of his red giant status displayed itself prominently in his continuously receding hairline and lightened streaks? That was confidential.

Today, with all this plaguing his subconscious thoughts, the department head had other pressing matters to handle. It seemed that cleanliness in the department had laxed a bit too much over the years. Either that or, perhaps, there were simply too many magical artefacts coming into the department these days. Artefacts like the trident he carried in his hand now. Having sent notifications to all the chambers, anyone with a hand to spare, to come and assist with the reorganization effort...which would make for a GREAT effort seeing as the Chamber of Codes currently resembled the Room of Hidden Things at Hogwarts, the clutter causing the astronomer's skin to feel like it just wanted to crawl right off his bones and out the door back to his office where everything was immaculately arranged or structured in a systematic way.

His lips smacked together, feeling unusually parched despite the liter of water he had had with breakfast. He also swore he heard a voice of some sort...but that he simply attested to the plethora of magical objects currently surrounding him - nothing to out of the ordinary there.

"Well then...clearly the Chamber was not a particular fan of cataloguing artefacts by region first," he announced to the paid volunteers for this herculean effort. "So, with everything regurgitated out as you very well can see, we'll begin cataloging by type of material. I'd like a team of five to focus on the collection of all books and tomes into that corner. It will be the bulk of many of these towers I imagine ...the rest of you may begin with a tower and separate its contents as appropriate."

Cleaning up and reorganising? Not Anya's favourite thing to do. Except she didn't have a reason not to be here at the Chamber of Codes. She had finished up her recent observation report and it would be a while before she looked through the telescopes again to gather data for another report. So really, she had some time in her hands. Also, she was getting paid to work and if that wasn't enough motivation to lift her butt off a bouncy floor of the Decompression Chamber, then there really would be no hope for her getting her job done.

So yes, ladies and gents, Anya Gonzales was here, giving the closest tower of thingamajigs a once-over. She could already tell she wouldn't enjoy going through that. "Do we know what happened, sir?" She asked. The Chamber of Codes couldn't possible have decided, one day, to turn into an entire wreck on its own, could it? (Don't answer that. She knew.) Anya took a step forward and picked the topmost object off the tower. It was a photo. A very old one, from the looks of it. Sheesh. There must be centuries worth of items to go through. She was not looking forward to all that.

How long would they be stuck rearranging here? A lady needed her sleep and maybe a couple of drinks too.

When he arrived at work this morning Indigo had not expected to find that his workspace had regurgitated itself, spewing artifacts all over the place. If it was him, he would have shrugged, gotten another cup of coffee, and gone about his day. But Mr. Flamsteed had a different feeling about the mess, so it seemed that it was time to clean. Indigo didn't particularly like cleaning, but it wasn't like he could pretend he was busy with something else because, well, his entire job literally took place in this room. So, here he was.

Indigo gave a polite nod to the other employee, Anya, who was already there, and quietly set about organizing the books. He was perfectly content not to engage in small talk while he worked.

Jane was now running late after her encounter at the Fountain of Magic Brethren in the Atrium. It had taken her a little time to dry off and pin her hair back up, straighten her robes, and recover her stack of ancient books. It had also taken a little time to deal with her colleague, Adam Gerulf. But now at last she hurried in, her books wobbling as she came. She looked anxiously around for their Dept. Head and finally spotted him, holding a....was that a trident? Had everyone in the Department gone mad today?

Jane walked over to Airey Flamsteed and murmured to him quietly, "Sir? I know you're busy here, but could I just speak to you a minute? It's about Adam. He's acting strangely--more strangely than usual, I mean. I found him just now splashing around in the Fountain of Brethren."

Practically running into the chamber to see how bad it was, Dottie let a huge sight ....."Chamber of codes why have you forsaken me." Dottie wasn't sure if she had said that last part out loud or not ... and she flushed a little because she was pretty sure she did. As a cryptographer, Dottie worked with codes ... like a lot. So the fact that her chamber of codes was a disaster bothered ... like a lot.

But none the less it needed to be done .. it needed to get back into proper order, so Dottie latched on to the nearest stack and began to see what she had in her hands.

Feeling as though he had already covered the reasoning, Airey was disinclined to repeat himself. However, when one considered the dangers of this particular department and how those dangers amplified when one did not know what was going on...the department head smacked his lips together, still feeling entirely too parched, and accepted reality. "As is with the majority of this department, an oversaturation of magic has its repercussions ...a couple of years ago, if you all recall, the rock pillows became sentient and formed a golem that wrecked havoc." Thankfully said havoc had mostly been isolated to the Hall of Prophecy. "The drawers, cabinets, and such..." he continued, gesturing around. "Have likewise done so over the years. While this does have a certain benefit of additional security and protection...there is also a certain...perfectionism that comes with it as well. Thus, seeing as the Chamber of Codes itself has decided that the organizational method was no longer efficient or best suited to its needs...well..." He clapped his hands together and then held them out in a sort of defeat. "Up to us to complete the manual labor."

Yes, manual. Too many objects in this chamber had undesirable responses to magic.

While Anya and Indigo got straight to it, he turned his head towards Dottie and couldn't help the dry sarcasm that escaped his mouth in a breathy laugh. "The Chamber may say that it is you...well...all of us...have forsaken it. Though we all could have done without it being so haughty about it."

Still holding the trident, though now a bit awkwardly as he had had it leaning against his chest, tucked under his arm and sandwiched in his arm bit, and generally anywhere on his person to keep it from clunking against the floor, Airey's attention turned to Jane and found himself entirely too distracted by the mention of a fountain.

Fountain. Water. Singing?

"Pardon me," he said rather abruptly, seemingly not even acknowledging the Unspeakable and what she had just reported to him. "Take this." And he proceeded to offer her the trident. "Perhaps you and Dottie...or everyone, can examine it and sort out how best to store it. Carefully. It is very important. I will...just be a moment..."

Every chamber in the department had its own atmosphere. To Damian, Codes was rather musty. He had not been here since the nasty business with the cursed puzzle box.

"I thought of taking residence here someday, when I was no longer capable of daredevilry, and death-defying deeds of derring-do." Though mercurial in nature, he was surprisingly organized. In his right hand, he held a wand that was not his own. Taken from the defeated vampire Bain Goldwasser, Damian had turned a wicked weapon into a tool to perform mundane tasks, such as doing the dishes, or organizing books.

With his eyes wandering at the sight of countless wonders, his ears stayed amongst the other unspeakables.

Jane did not need to be reminded about the rock golems in the Hall of Prophecy; that incident had happened on her very first day at work when she was on her way to report to Airey Flamsteed. Though at the time she hadn't quite realized that chaotic happenings were the norm rather than the exception here.

What?! "If you could wait just a minute sir, while I put these down," Jane replied, turning aside for a moment to set down her stack of books, next to several other stacks of books on the floor. This day was just getting odder and odder. "Now then," she went on, taking the trident from her boss, "you want this examined and then stored, right?" Jane looked curiously at the trident's handle to see if there were any magical markings on it.

Davie breezed in but paused when he saw the Admiral handling something, something like an artifact. Just for a moment he had a glimpse of... of... a flashback? A memory? Of his wearing gloves and handling things too? It was crackling, fading, fuzzy like a bit of radio when one is caught trying to tune-in between two stations.

He shook the nargles out of his head and came a little closer as the Admiral droned on and on about manual labor. Ugh. Could he unsubscribe from this?

Maybe if he slowwwwwly edged toward the door no one would notice him. He had been doing a remarkably amazing job at keeping a low profile these past few years.

"A trident how marvelous! Can I take a look" Dottie asked smiling holding her hands out for it. She really wanted to hold it .. why .. because who wouldn't want to hold a trident!

And then she saw something out of the corner of her eye. "David! Welcome to this mess! We are happy for all the help we can get." She motioned toward the mess behind her ... still keeping her eyes on the trident ... which she really really really really wanted to hold.

Though usually very logical and cool-tempered, Jane felt a sudden burst of possessiveness when her co-worker reached toward the trident. Airey had given it to her to examine! Protectively she moved the trident over to one side, away from Dottie. "I think, before a lot of people start handling it, that I should carefully examine and evaluate this object, to make sure it's...safe."

Jane turned to see who Dottie was looking at. "David? I haven't seen you around the Department for ages. What have you been up to?" Jane was genuinely curious (and concerned) about her colleague's activities, but she was also glad to turn the subject of conversation away from the trident.

Herrmmm........ it did not go amiss from Dottie that Jane moved the trident further away. It's not like Dottie would have stolen right out of her hands ... though ... now she kind of wanted to after that show of possessiveness, but that was after all a rather childish thing to do.

"No worries Jane, I won't steal it from you, I just wanted a quick look." There was was very non threatening right??????????? Right. Grabbing another book to examine the title and determine it's contents, Dottie took on step toward the side of the trident ... maybe if she couldn't hold it just yet, she could get a better look at it.

Wellllp, so much for not attracting any attention here. Davie sighed. Audibly. "I've been around," was all he replied to Jane, really. "What did I miss?" Was the trident, for example, a new artifact or one they had acquired previously?

Oh sweet solstice.

"The Department of Mysteries, as a whole, is not a place one can take up residence," he informed Damien with a firm rub to his forehead. It was also fortunate for the Unspeakable at the moment that Airey was so preoccupied with the dryness in his throat and this incessant desire to plunge his head into a toilet that he did not notice the artefact the man was wielding. Everything to do with Bain should be filed away and kept under tight bindrune and protective charms or else face termination from their position in the Ministry. It had not gone unnoticed that this wand was missing...and it would be in everyone's best interest that it return to its proper box. Soon.

Airey really did not enjoying firing people.

But, back to Jane.

"Yes yes, if you would please," he nodded hurriedly. "No need to fret so much, the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes as well as Ecological Regulation and Protection have already given the trident a thorough examination and have rendered it safe. It is our task to examine the magical energy it is emitting, benign in nature, though with unknown parameters." He had suggested that her and Dottie take a look at it and, oh! Mr. Truebridge was here as well. How charming.

"Now, if you please," he continued, clearing his throat as though he were coughing up sand and loosened his tie entirely while also unbuttoning his shirt just a bit. He was feeling terribly dry and parched, you see. "I will be back in a little. Please carry on with your efforts here and I expect to return to see a substantial amount of progress accomplished."

Offering Mr. Truebridge an awkward little pat pat on the shoulder - no mentioned of their hug from last year, please - the department head swiftly made his way of the chamber and took off towards the lifts.

Jane did not miss Airey's subtle-notsosubtle comment to Damien and she gave her colleague a warning look behind their boss's back. It would not do if Damien got himself fired--Jane did not particularly want to have to break in yet another new co-worker. And then Jane stifled a smile at Airey's attitude to seeing David. Airey almost seemed annoyed that so many people were here, when it was he himself who issued the memo for them all to come. In fact, her superior seemed to be acting a bit...strangely...today. Not that it was easy to tell new strangeness from Airey's everyday strangeness.

But anyway, back to work. Jane tried to repress her strange and illogical desire to keep the trident for herself, and no one else, to examine and reluctantly held it out (very slightly) toward Dottie. "It seems to have some sort of symbols or inscription on it," Jane commented, clearing her throat, which seemed suddenly rather dry. Jane loosened the collar of her robes with her other hand; they suddenly seemed very restrictive and tight. She regretted now drying off all that lovely water that had gotten all over her up by the fountain.

Default Indigo is not as antisocial as he sounds I promise XD
not throwing away my shot | Slytherpuff | roll for initiative | woof you ❤

Indigo liked his job partly because it meant he got to sit in relative quiet, working on whatever translation or codes he was at the time, and be unbothered by others. This, was definitely a change of pace and not really a welcome one. He did have a smile for Dottie. She was a fellow cryptographer so he knew her better than the rest. Indigo shot a bit of a look at Pendragon. He did not appreciate the insinuation that the chamber of codes was lesser work than whatever "daring do" he got up to. Indigo knew it wasn't fair to form opinions when he really didn't know him very well, but something about the man just rubbed him the wrong way.

Indigo had a nice stack of books going when Mr. Flamsteed left. He glanced at the pair with the trident, but they seemed to have it under control so he left them to it. Nobody seemed to really want to engage with him in conversation, which was fine with him. He was fine with quiet. In fact, he would like to get this over with so the rest of them would leave the chamber and it could go back to its usual peace and quiet thank you very much.

Default Dottie--it's all yours!

Jane narrowed her eyes as she tried to make out what looked like some kind of engraving or inscription on the handle of the trident, but the symbols (if there indeed were any) swam before her eyes. She pulled again at her collar--why did everything feel so tight? "Does it seem hot in here to you?" she asked aloud to no one in particular. Suddenly it seemed impossible for her to work in here one moment longer, without a break for...a drink of water! Yes, that was what she needed. "Here," she suddenly said to Dottie, thrusting the trident into the other woman's hands. "See what you can make of this. I'll...I'll be back in a moment." And with that, the usually cool and collected Miss Howard practically sprinted from the Chamber of Codes.

A magical energy, hmm? "You don't say..." Davie murmured, wanting to move closer to the trident yet not because... because something just told him he shouldn't be touching this artifact. Not one but TWO people had suddenly needed to leave the chambers after handling this thing and Davie wasn't at all sure he should be the next one.

He received the shoulder pat pat with a stiff little nod and flicked his wand into his wrist. "Indigo," he quietly addressed the other chap, "would you be so kind as to help me inspect this while Dottie holds it?"

Using wands, of course, not by AcTuALLy touching it. Dottie herself should be wearing gloves. David's very strong intuition and a VERY strong memory was telling him so.
