Default A Magical Escape Room

Tucked away in a corner of London just outside the entrance of Diagon Alley is an building that looks unassuming from the outside. But the inside contains mystery and adventure. It's an escape room!

Margaret Walker was excited. And nervous. And Excited. Her little escape room served primarily muggles, but her connection to the wizarding world meant that she got a few witch and wizard customers through word of mouth. And a few months ago she had been inspired to create a magical escape room exclusive to the wizarding community. And after lots of work, that idea had become a reality and her first all magical escape room was opening. She had put up flyers around Diagon Alley to advertise, and she was feeling both excited and nervous about the grand opening.

Maggie had prepared a special little event for the first run of her new room. There were finger sandwiches and little cups of juice set up for the guests. Maggie was there early, of course, waiting at the counter to greet her guests when they arrived.

Guests had to book in advance, of course. So she would know exactly how many to expect. Maggie glanced at the clock on the wall. They should start to arrive any minute.

SPOILER!!: OOC info

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to see so many people wanting to play. I don't know exactly how this will go but I'm excited to try it out with you. Here's how this is going to work:

Have your characters investigate or interact with anything in the room. If you want to investigate something I will post any additional details about it if there are any, or say that you can't find anything else from it. If you want to interact with something (combining objects, opening a lock once you've found a code, etc.) have your character do it and I will post letting you know what happens as a result (if the lock opens, if you accidentally blow it up, etc.). Like Cassie said, feel free to use magic but try not to break my game please XD Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!

This idea comes from a podcast called Escape This Podcast, which is basically virtual escape rooms. They have all of their past rooms available on their website to play! Check them out (but not this one, no cheating.) I have obviously changed some things to lean into the magical element but this room and puzzles are based on their episode 'Boarzits'

If there's one thing that could get Jackson Bole all sorts of excited, it was magical escape rooms finger sandwiches! They were just so little. And so tasty. And so little. And though the finger sandwiches were the main attraction, he was just as excited to take part in the escape room.

You see, despite being heavily involved on campus and working at the library and taking on a full load of university classes and keeping his fiancé happy, Jack(son) made it a point to attend as many community events as he could. It was important to stay involved in these things, you know? So anytime there was a community volunteer activity or some sort of outdoor festival or a community event or a grand opening of the first magical escape room exclusive to the wizarding community, he'd be there!

Aaaaaaaaaaaand here he was!

The blonde ducked his head as he made his way into the space, smile widening when he saw the lady by the counter. "Hiya," he waved as he made his way over. Those finger sandwiches? They looked fantastic! His mouth was already watering, but he tamped down the urge to swipe one in order to make conversation first. "I'm Jackson! I'm here for the escape room... Hope I've, uh, got the right place??" Heh. Admittedly, he had lost the card with the information ... and hadn't thought to take note of the address elsewhere.

But hey! Those finger sandwiches thouuuuuuuuuuuugh.

Hello! Also checking after him!” he added, pointing to the guy in front of him.

The thought that she ought to have invited someone along had of course occurred to the former Ravenclaw. Sawyer, in a date capacity, or her brother and Gabrielle, Vi...the twins were still in school, so they were most likely out. Either way, there hadn't been any hesitation on Tess's part when she'd first heard about the escape room, whether or not it had slipped her mind as to if she had invited anyone to accompany her. It wasn't required, right?

The petite blonde, her hair still dip dyed blue at the tips, had entered not long after the two guys, spending a few moments looking around instead of immediately addressing the woman behind the counter. She seemed rather busy with the two who'd arrived before her anyhow, but Tess figured she'd get to her eventually.

Adi had seen the flyers and had immediately been intrigued. He knew that he wanted to have someone accompany him to the exciting event. Who better to do so than Hades? It was perfect for the two of them! Plus, they got to spend time together, time that wasn’t them working together on the Reserve. “Doesn’t look like much from the outside,’’ he commented to the woman he considered his younger sister. His comment was just one in passing and didn’t matter because it was common sense that the actual setting would be entirely different; the good kind of different.

How right he was. The sandwiches were the first thing that caught his eyes. This wasn’t much of a surprise because Adi basically was a foodie. The man nodded towards the small group of people. “I think we head that way first?” Leading the way, Adi came to a halt behind the younger woman {Thessaly} already there to wait his and Hades’ turn. “Heya!” That was for {Thessaly} because Adi was still very much a social human being.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

While searching around for volunteer work, Minjae had come across an advertisement about a magical escape room just outside of Diagon Alley and he had grown interested. He had played several escape room games at home with his VR headset but he had never gone out to an actual one before.

The ex Hufflepuff arrived at the destination and opened the door. There were a few people already present but there was one person who he immediately recognized. Seeing Noah outside was a pleasant surprise because he knew how busy he was with his healer apprentice job. ” I’m also here for the escape room” he announced with a gentle smile.

One thing that had never changed for Hady, was her love of adventure. Somehow though she had missed the fliers that had been around advertising this escape room. Adi hadn't however. And there was no way she was going to turn this down. Not only would this be a chance for them to spend some time together as 'family' but also it was time away from work and without their children too. Merlin had her youngest become even more of a handful now that she was the last one home and the others were at Hogwarts.

"No, it doesn't but looks can be decieving," Hady replied with a slight nod of her head as she surveyed their surroundings. True, the outside wasn't much at all but as she followed Adi inside it was easy to see the change would be a big one. There was even food and drinks. How nice that was. As she got into line with Adi to wait their turn to check-in, polite smiles were given to those around them.

Oh! Someone was here! Maggie turned to the door with her best customer service smile. It wasn't even that difficult. The genuine excitement easily bringing the grin to her face. "Welcome!" She greeted the first two who arrived. She glanced down at her clipboard, using her pen to put a big check mark next to the name Jackson Bole. "Jackson Bole, got it! Thank you for coming! Feel free to enjoy the refreshments while we wait for everyone to arrive." She gestured to the finger sandwiches and cups in the waiting area and turned her attention to the next in line. "Hello! I just need your name so I can get you checked in."

More people were starting to trickle in, much to Maggie's delight. Not that she was concerned they wouldn't. They had already paid when they registered. But still, it was nice to see them. "Hi everyone. I just need your names so I can check you in, then feel free to enjoy some refreshments while we wait for everyone to arrive!"

Default James Summers | 26 | model & his rper's sincerest apologies
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

So. Listen.

He did not know why he was here.

He had simply been handed a piece of paper by his manager with an address and instructions for what time to be there by. Assuming it was a photoshoot of some sort, one oddly endorse by his life coach Jericho, he had arrived as instructed and taken his sweet time double, triple, and quadruple checking the establishment's address to be sure he had not made THAT mistake again before stepping inside - and just in time for the cute hostess to mention refreshments. Juice was an interesting choice for a photoshoot as was the name for this studio, he had to admit, and even more curious a sight were the other...uh...models?

He literally recognized no one and he had been in the business since he was 17 and dropped out of Hogwarts meeeeeeeere months from completing his requirements (academia was overrated anyway, yeah?). Maybe that was the point? Jericho was always telling him that he needed to broaden his social circles as part of his recovery and rehabilitation program. Sure, why not?

"Uh, James Summers," James greeted as he approached the woman and pulled out one of his business cards. Just standard protocol and professionalism, you know. Speaking of knowing...she probably already knew who he was. He was pretty sure that was him on one of the covers of the magazines over there in the waiting space. It was an...unusual set up. Where even were the lighting crew and photographers? Make-up artists? Were they just posing in what they came in? "Just tell me where to stand and if you'll be needing me with my shirt on or off."

Usually he was asked to take it off, underwear and jeans being the majority of his portfolio, but one never knew.

Default Remington Marchbanks - 20, WU Edinburgh
Unforgivably Cursed | adultescent

Remington Marchbanks had never been to an escape room before, but she'd heard all about them from a couple of her muggleborn friends and they sounded right up her alley for this former Ravenclaw. And when she heard about a magical escape room opening up, she knew she had to check it out.

Remi was not one of those types to go alone and just make friends with whoever was there. Instead, she signed up her brother along with herself and dragged him with her. Once there, she vaguely recognized many of the people already there as people from Hogwarts while she was there, but none of them memorable enough for her to know their names.

They'd arrived just in time to hear the guy with the man-bun offer to take off his shirt..? "...what.." She'd not been privy to any information about disrobing being a part of this. "Ew." She turned to give Brandon a look like, can you believe this guy? They weren't even in the room yet and she already wanted to escape.

Hearing the woman who was presumably in charge ask for names and seeing others approach her, Remi followed suit. "Remington Marchbanks and Brandon Marchbanks," she added, gesturing to her brother, to sign them both in.

Lovely™ | Captain Hurted | Ariana's Bane | Resident Antagonist | Unparalleled Delight

"I'm going to be so mad at you if I end up traumatised by this."

Brandon... did not know what an escape room was. Or, at least, he hadn't known until Remi had kindly volunteered him to attend with her, at which point he'd done his research because duh. Though he was a little uncertain about the concept, there was no denying his low-level excitement over the fact that all this was basically like being thrown right into a puzzle. Brandon would be all over that.

Or maybe he wouldn't, given he was already a confused. Was... was the 'tell me where to stand' guy a part of the experience? Had they already started? Or was he a participant, and was the potential shirt-off situation something Brandon should have been prepared for? He wasn't going shirtless. Brandon had spent a long time picking out this outfit - his new black and silver paisley shirt was complemented well by his favourite dark teal blazer and black jeans. White sneakers too, which contrasted drastically with the rest in an effect Brandon enjoyed, though perhaps it could do with some other accessories to balance that out...

... The point was, the outfit was staying. Shirt stayed on, with everything else.

Pulled from his thoughts, Brandon wrinkled his nose slightly before giving a surreptitious little eye roll for Remi's benefit only, choosing to believe that this guy was one of those who just liked taking his shirt off wherever he went and assumed everyone liked to see it. Time and a place, man. C'mon.

All the same, when Remi was focused on signing them in, Brandon briefly cut his eyes across to try and catch a better glimpse of that business card. For future reference. Just to see. Shut up.

Default Micaiah Moon | 24 | Healer in Training
Baguette | there is no D in my name | TRAITORclaw | Queenie of Narnia

Had she ever done an escape room before? Nope. But she was more than eager to try it out.

Having thrown herself into her studies and work for awhile now, Micaiah was ready for something fun. A lot of things had been weighing on her, even things that were very good and happy events, which was frustrating. But it was time to set that aside, at least for a little while. No thoughts about the future or loneliness or anything else. Only fun.

Loosely crossing her arms in front of her, she scanned the room. There were a lot of people here already, including some guy offering to take his shirt off (?!?!) and...wait, wasn't that her sister Serena's boyfriend Minjae???

Ooo. Yes, this would be fun.

But first, to check in with the woman at the counter. And then maybe grab one of those little sandwiches. "Hi, Micaiah Moon."

How Papa had managed Gilly to go out for a day on her own was some sort of miracle. An escape room certainly DID sound like a lot of fun, and the 21 year old single mom was certainly missing getting to go out and hang out with people her own age. AND she'd signed up for this weeks ago with the intention of going... But also, she did really happen to like her son and going out for a day meant an entire afternoon of missing Cedar.

Although, he WAS with her dad and apparently they would be having a boy's day in Papa's greenhouse. Only after Gilly had made him swear up and down though to watch the 3 year old like a HAWK and ensure he stayed away from any of the more dangerous plants. She'd gotten a promise from her dad, but she'd still spent the morning tending to some of the more dangerous types and ensuring those that had a proclivity for biting had been properly fed and made docile for the day. It never hurt to be extra safe.

Though, she probably should have checked herself after finishing her gardening so she could have washed away the dirt smudges on her left arm and her right cheek.

Once it was her turn, Gil stepped up and offered a smile to the woman working the event and provided her name in order to check in. She was also eying that table of snacks and keeping an eye for anyone that might look familiar to her. It was unlikely though, given she'd managed to be accepted as an exchange student at Castelobruxo before she'd ever even had a chance to go to Hogwarts.

not throwing away my shot | Slytherpuff | roll for initiative | woof you ❤

Maggie turned her attention to the next group of people to come in. The first, who identified himself as James Summers, was handing her a business card. That was... strange. She could get him checked in easily enough just from him telling her his name. Though her smile faltered with the strangeness, she took it and set it down behind the desk. What he said next though... she just blinked. Maggie worked in customer service. She was used to a lot of strange things. This was new, though. "Thank you, Mr. Summers. You can wait over there until we get started. Um, please keep all of your clothes on." That went for everyone, though she had thought it went without being said.

She tried to shake it off and reinstate her smile for the others checking in. "Marchbanks... ah, yes there are two of you. Thank you." She beamed at the two and checked them off on her clipboard. "Moon, thank you so much. And Desjardins, got you." With that, she checked off the last name of the list. Alright, time to get this thing started.

"Hello everyone, thank you so much for coming. I hope you're all as excited as I am. And I hope you're enjoying the refreshments. Don't worry, they'll still be there when you're done with the room. Consider it an incentive for escaping." Maggie smiled at her little joke. Hopefully at least some of the group would find it at least a little funny. It was always awkward when people just stared blankly at her. "For those of you who have never done an escape room before, I'll give a brief explanation. Basically, you'll enter a room filled with puzzles and clues. Look carefully at the things in the room with you, and use them to solve the puzzles. Sometimes you'll have to think outside the box. Things don't always work the way you think they will, so be creative. And make sure to work together. Everyone thinks differently, so someone might have an idea to solve a puzzle that you hadn't thought about. Eventually you'll be able to solve all the puzzles and make your way out of the room?"

She looked around, making sure everyone was following her. This might be familiar to some, if they had done an escape room before, but since it was not traditionally a magical activity she had decided to err on the side of caution and give a more thorough explanation. "Alright, I'm going to go over some of the rules and then we can get right to it! If you've done a muggle escape room before, this might be a little different because you are allowed to use magic. Please be reasonable, of course. Don't set the whole room on fire or anything like that. But if you think it would be helpful, that's fine. Though, everything except the last puzzle is possible to complete without magic so don't feel like you have to either. Be respectful to my room, and be respectful of each other. Sometimes people can get heated when they're trying to solve puzzles or getting frustrated, but don't take it out on your fellow players." She glanced around at them again. Some of them seemed to know each other, but not everyone did. Sometimes playing with strangers set people on edge, but sometimes people bonded with strangers over puzzles in a way you wouldn't have expected. It was always interesting to watch. "By the way, I will be watching you so I can help you out. So keep your shirts on." She looked at that one guy, James Summers, in particular when she said that. No one else really seemed like they needed to be reminded. "And if at any point you need help just call out and ask me. It may seem weird because I'm not there but I promise I will hear you and I will be able to give you a hint."

"Right. That should be all. Any questions?" She looked around, giving them all a chance to ask if anything needed clearing up.


OOC: This is already very long so I decided not to get the room started in the same post. I'll probably give until the end of the week for any questions or anything from players, and then get started! Feel free to ask me any OOC questions as well.

Indeed looks could be deceiving. Gazing around, Adi couldn’t agree more. Then his gaze alternated between the surroundings to the other participants arriving. It was quite a nice turnout. “Aditya Atreyu- Rehman,” the man told the host when his turn came. No need to tell him twice about indulging in refreshments! He looked to Hades to provide her name.

Checking in behind them, Adi took his time to down two sandwiches and a good helping of juice. He didn’t need to be distracted by his constant need for food for the next few hours. Food as an incentive for escaping? Yes. A million times yes. This was proper motivation. Adi liked Maggie and the way she thought, and raised his half full glass of juice in her direction in appreciation.

Still munching, Adi multitasked by also listening to the rules - which seemed simple enough for anyone to comprehend. He was quite certain that he’d be able to handle any sort of pressure, the MANY years of him playing Gobstones had seen to that. Therefore, he didn’t mind working with a roomful of obviously MUCH younger people. The professional Gobstones teams too had their share of youngsters.

Questions? None came to mind at the moment.

As they stood there waiting in line to give their names, one by one more people began to show up. It looked like there was a fairly good sized group for this event. Then again she really didn't know since this was her first time attending this type of event. "Hadleigh Paton," she gave her name to the host when they had reached the front of the line and Adi turned to her so she could give her own name.

Once checked in, she didn't mind taking one of the small finger sandwiches a bit of juice to snack on while waiting for everyone else to check-in. The time was also passed quickly by looking around for a few moments longer. Not that there really was very much to see just yet.

When the host began to speak, Hady turned her attention onto the woman. Fairly simple instructions were given about what was meant to take place, the idea of how to go about getting out of the room. It was all about strategy, quick thinking and working together. It sounded fairly simple but she knew that wasn't always the case. Looks could be deceiving. Having no questions as of now, she gently elbowed Adi in the side. "So what do you think?" Surely they could handle this just like back in their Hogwart days whenever they had the chance to work together.

Maggie glanced around, making sure there weren’t any overly confused faces in the crowd. Seeing no questions, she smiled at them all. “Alright, if there are no more questions I will begin with the story of the room. Imagine that you are eleven years old. You got your Hogwarts letter a few months ago and you have been looking forward to this moment ever since. It’s September first, and you board the Hogwarts Express. You don’t remember most of the journey, because you fell asleep in your compartment. When you wake up, you’re not quite sure where you are. You’re in a grassy courtyard somewhere. You better figure out how to get into the castle or you might get in trouble. Or worse, you’ll miss the feast!” Maggie glanced over the group again, making sure they were all still following. “And now you can follow me to the room,” She led them out of the waiting area and down a hallway where there was a door at the end of the hall. She opened it and ushered them in. “Good luck.”

--

The room you enter is a very realistic looking courtyard, clearly put together with a bit of magic. On one end are a few trees, the beginning of a forest. In the middle of the courtyard is a large fountain. It has a stone statue of a mermaid in the middle, with water cascading down around her. Situated around the fountain are a few benches. A shabby trunk sits on the ground next to one of them. A few feet from the fountain is a stone statue of a man. The door that you came in magically seals behind you. Next to it sits a red mailbox.


SPOILER!!: How this will work

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to see so many people wanting to play. I don't know exactly how this will go but I'm excited to try it out with you. Here's how this is going to work:

Have your characters investigate or interact with anything in the room. If you want to investigate something I will post any additional details about it if there are any, or say that you can't find anything else from it. If you want to interact with something (combining objects, opening a lock once you've found a code, etc.) have your character do it and I will post letting you know what happens as a result (if the lock opens, if you accidentally blow it up, etc.). Like Cassie said, feel free to use magic but try not to break my game please XD Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

After checking in with Maggie, Minjae went to the refreshments and grabbed a cup of juice before standing next to Noah. Giving him a 'sup' head nod he drank from the cup slowly as more people showed up. He took another sip and it was at that moment that he overheard an older guy (James) asking whether he should take his shirt off or not. He choked on his drink after he had let out a snort-laugh and he turned around to cough loudly on his sleeve, his eyes tearing up in the process.

Catching his breath, Minjae turned back around to see Micaiah enter the room. Merlin's Beard let her not have seen him choke on a stupid drink just now. He wanted to look like the 'cool' boyfriend of her sister. "Micaiah, over here" he called with a wave of his hand.

As the host began to explain the rules, Minjae tried his very best to focus on her words but the more he tried the more zoned out he became. Until eventually he was lost in his own thoughts. It was a good thing he had done escape rooms before. Virtual Reality wasn't that different from reality after all.

He wasn't exactly thrilled to be going back to Hogwarts though. The last time he had been there he had been imprisoned for two months. In fact, his time in the void had been the reason Minjae had started playing escape room games.

As he entered the realistic-looking courtyard, Minjae had to applaud Maggie's spellwork in his mind. The shabby trunk next to the benches near the fountain was the first thing that caught his attention but he knew that they most likely needed a code to open it first so he looked around first. Until his eyes landed on the red mailbox next to the door they had entered from. He walked towards it and tried to open it.

It was quickly becoming apparent to James that this was not THAT kind of shoot. Little did he know that in...oooooooooooh...approximately five more minutes he was going to figure out just how much of a not that kind of place it really was. Like a sack of bricks to the face.

Very much aware of the gawking going on around him (he was very much used to such admirations being a model and all and general beefcake of any room) he simply nodded his head as the director of the shoot seemed entirely too charmed by his presence and therefore took a moment or two before speaking. Either that...or maybe she was not a fan of his cologne he was wearing today. He wasn't either, to be honest, but they were a current rep and James was one of the spokesmodels for the brand so...he was sort of contractually obligated to wear it while out. There were others in the line he preferred...but this was the only sample he had left so...here they were. "Sure thing," he nodded. "But I was only talking about my shirt not the whole kitchen sink."

Knocking his knuckles on the table thrice and leaving the business card there, the Gryffindor pivoted and spotted the siblings and particular the brother who was dressed quite sharply and how James figured managers and publicists often dressed. Business casual, right? Therefore his hand went back into his pocket and he pulled out another of his cards while offering it to the bloke in the same stride. "Here you are, mate," James greeted with a whimsy sort of smile.

The coughing, and gagging, caught his attention too and his crisp blue eyes darted over to the bloke who was wiping his sleeve on his arm and with some remnants of beverage on his chin. He didn't really have time to ask if they were okay (and if he was sick...James would appreciate him staying on the opposite of the space) as the director began to speak again.

And...what...where...how...what...YOU MEAN THIS WAS NOT A PHOTOSHOOOT?!

It was not unusual for James Summers to feel like the dumbest person in the room - he typically WAS the dumbest in any room - but this was just downright embarrassing. His brain, with its paper thin desire for self preservation, continued to try and morph the whole situation to fit the narrative of a photoshoot...but even his dumb derriere couldn't ignore the facts that much. Questions? Yeah. James had about a THOUSDAND and two of those...but none of them came out. Moving completely on autopilot (and he may as well have been baa-ing over here as he followed the crowd down the hallway and into the room...er...outside into the courtyard...er...somewhere) James moved right on over to the trunk and sat on it. Sure, there were benches RIGHT THERE...but the trunk looked just fine.

He also really wasn't thinking straight and was just looking for somewhere to sit. So, the trunk was the closest. If it fits, he sits.

Knocking on the top of it a few times, more like drumming on it with both hands at either of his sides, and looks around the space just as the door magically disappeared.

".......so........ are we all pretending to be 11-years-old or...are we all like...as a group representing one 11-year-old and we are just the various ways of thinking going on inside their head?" He looked at the statue of the man and squinted. "Think if someone were to cast that one spell...the one that brings statues and stuff to life...uh...P...P...Pear....Pear something something Locomotor...that they'll talk?"

And by someone...he meant anyone but himself. The woman had set not to set anything on fire. That meant James and using his wand was out. He wasn't even sure he had it on him today anyway. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A PHOTOSHOOT AND NOT SOME DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS LESSON!

Jericho...he was suing you. Whenever it was he got out of here and he remembered to do so.

~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Marvel-ous Patronus

Adi was quite wrapped up in the refreshments and the words of Maggie when he felt the elbow to his side. He tilted his head closer to Hades. “I think,” he whispered, grin in place. “We got this.” They made quite a team, this creature- obsessed duo. Indeed it would be just like they were back at Hogwarts. As Maggie continued on, Adi drew his attention back to her. Mhmmm! He could picture all of that quite clearly as though it were only yesterday. Of course, back then his parents had been alive. But memory lane ended at the part where ‘he’ fell asleep, because that was something that Adi had done.

The refreshments were quickly polished off before he followed the group to a room down the hall. Immediately the man was reminded of Hogwarts’ courtyard except, of course, in some aspects - like the red mailbox. It was his turn to nudge Hades. “Shall we start over there?” She would see that he was pointing to the statue of the man. The mailbox had intrigued him first but since Minjae was already examining it, Adi figured that other aspects of the room should be explored. For that reason, he led the way to the statue. “Dunno why, Hades, but this reminds me of that one eyed witch statue at Hogwarts. You remember it? The one where it can be tapped with our wands and the incantation Dissendium?” The Gobstones player recalled it all too well and that’s why he did exactly those steps: the statue was tapped smartly. “Dissendium!”

Noah returned his bestie's 'Sup' and nod with one of his own. He did, however, arch his eyebrows when he saw Minjae call out to an older woman. He did notice that she bore a resemblance to Serena, Minjae's new girlfriend, so he assumed this was a relative. Hmmm.. He'd test his theory. "Future sister in law?" he joked before turning to the larger group as the instructions were read aloud to them.

Hogwarts... As an eleven year old. Right... He would just have to wipe the memories of Illvermorny out of his head. Yep.. Adjusted. He put himself in that role and then let his eyes scan around the room as the instructions were relayed to them.

He noticed Minjae going to the red mailbox. "Does it need a key?" he asked before readying his wand to cast a nonverbal Alohomora.
