Gringotts Wizarding Bank

Gringotts bank

You approach a large, white building near the end of Diagon Alley. The marble, columned entrance held the title "Gringotts Bank" engraved into it. It is clearly one of the largest buildings in the alleyway, a monument to its status of fame. You make your way through and enter.
Gringottsentrancehall

As you slowly walk in, your footsteps echoing in the silent room, you notice the goblin bankers silently working, the scribbling on their parchment ever so silent. As you walk toward the front desk, you look up at the goblin, towering over you in his desk.

Gringotts Head Goblin

As he would take notice to you, looking down on you with a bored expression, waiting for you to speak.

Melaena's heels clicked softly against the marble as she entered the bank with a confident stride, her wand twirling expertly between her fingers like a baton. In her other hand she held what appeared to be a gold mechanism with encrusted jewels littering the surface and lines suggested the piece could potentially open. As she moved through the crowd and disappeared behind a man, her raven strands of hair magically begun to turn frosty white as she hefted the piece up like an able she would inspect at a supermarket and not a thousand year old treasure.

Ethan was standing just to the side, having just left to deposit some ancient statue that he had found a few days beforehand. Ethan was waiting for a text, though, but he wasn't quite sure he was going to get it. So, there he was standing at the side of the bank, trying to control his niffler, Platypus. Usually, she was quite content to sit in the pocket of his jacket and watch the world go by but in the bank, where they were surrounded by gold, she often became rather restless. Yes, they could stand outside but it was raining and...well, Ethan had snapped his wand by accident that morning and was yet to buy another, so he didn't have an umbrella. Though...dealing with getting drenched might be better than keeping a niffler at bay. Naturally, Platypus's attention had been caught by the treasure in Melaena's hand and shot out of Ethan's grip. Darting across the bank, Ethan managed to scoop Platypus back up before she had managed to try and steal the jewel. "I'm so sorry about that," he said, as he realised they caused a slight scuffle, before he realised who it was. His boss.

Melaena turned her head as the ends of her tresses finished morphing to blonde, her deep amber-brown eyes periodically flicking between the Niffler and the man. She quirked a finely trimmed brow and slipped her wand delicately into a pocket, her gaze never quite leaving Ethan as she drew the formerly cursed golden orb toward her chest instinctively. "I'm almost disappointed that I didn't think of a Niffler first," she commented aloud but her charming smirk had yet to surface. Was she unimpressed? Curious? Who could know with Melaena Vasilyeva. Her everchanging personality allowed her to shed her skin like a shapeshifter to better fit what people wanted to see her as and right now, it was his superior.

Ethan shrugged slightly as he shoved Platypus into the inside pocket of his jacket, to try and minimise any chances of her escaping again. "They're useful in this line of work," he said, "supposedly make terrible pets but I like them as pets too. But I can understand they wouldn't be for everyone." Then he held out his hand, "you must be Ms. Vasilyeva, I'm Ethan Belfrey."

Melaena gently pulled at the tips of her leather gloves until each finger was somewhat freed before delicately removing the cloth from her well-manicured hands, the same hands that itched to enter his chest cavity. "Please, call me Melaena." She observed his own hand for a moment before reaching out to firm grasp his own, dark pools flicking down toward the pocket that encased his Niffler. "Ah. Belfrey. The new curse-breaker. A pleasure to meet you," she saud despite the tone in her voice going flat.

Ethan's eyes flicked towards the other girl, wondering if he said something wrong for the tone to go flat but shook her hand anyway. His grasp wasn't firm but it wasn't loose either. "Yeah, that's me. New cursebreaker," he said with a nod, "likewise. Should have come find you long ago, though."

"I read in your file that you are a local," she explored carefully, not wanting to reveal that she always dug up information on new recruits that didn't just pertain to his resume. "Have you found any cursed objects around London?" She made it her own personal hobby to pick the brain's of those she interacted with and to be plain and honest, Ethan fit her type - and not in the sense of romance or straight out attraction. He was the kind of male she enjoyed killing the most so it was increasingly hard to play it cool but the zaps of excitement and desire that tried to circuit through her veins were making her come off more statuesque and rigid than normal.

If Ethan felt off with the way Melaena was questioning him, or her true intentions, then he didn't show it. But, Ethan was a terrible liar and couldn't keep his real emotions off his face so he was blind to what was going through Melaena's head. "Enough that the bank is happy," he said with a shrug, "but there's so much I've only scratched the surface. I'd ask the same for you but obviously you seem to be doing well."

"Gringotts will be happy as long as it has rich clients and skilled cursebreakers," she said flippantly as it was a fact most knew and accepted. The goblins were a simple and greedy breed. Her blonde curls swayed down her back as she readjusted her posture, eyes trailing after a goblin as he waddled around with a sack full of coins nearly as big as himself. "Cursebreaking is the only thing I'm good at," she lied with the ghost of smirk; there were a few things on the list she had a natural affinity for.

Ethan sighed at the response but shrugged. "I suppose you're right," he said. Ethan always loved the exploring part most, the digging into historical ruins in search for the treasure. Surely there was more to that than the treasure. "I'd say the same but....I like animals too much for this to be the only thing I'm good at. I suppose you've been doing this for a while, then?"

Melaena had easily picked up on the sigh but chose not to dwell on the momentary lapse of Ethan's seemingly easy going mood. "Animals," she said with a quirked brow and had a mind to ask why he didn't just teach Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts instead of Cursebreaking but bit her tongue. "I started when I was in Russia," she admitted and begun to walk up the aisle to the bank, conversationally engaging the man by giving him sidelong glances. "I'm considerably younger than most but I'm good at what I do so they keep me around. You are even younger or so I presume; you know what it's like. Plus, I think I have the goblins in my pocket at this point."

Ethan nodded, his smile being drawn back to his face at the word. "Animals," he confirmed, "I think it's important to have more than one hobby, something outside of your career. Not that I don't enjoy this. Russia, huh?" He asked, looking at her, "that's cool. I've been once or twice, it's a pretty place. Is that so? I hear goblins are difficult to charm over."

Melaena's rosy lips curled up into a cruel smile as she directed her gaze forward, wand twirling subconsciously between her fingers like a baton while the golden sphere sat perched in the palm of her other hand. "Russia," she confirmed, almost mimicking his reactions. As a sociopath with the inability to feel many if any emotions at all, she was forced to learn and morph into what people wanted to see in her and that was exactly what she was doing to Ethan. "The country and cities are beautiful but I grew up in an icy hellhole," she tossed lightly, offering him a grin to lighten the brutally honest tone.

"Were you, let me guess, raised in Siberia?" He asked. Ethan knew most people would have taken that seriously, given their condolences or something akin to sympathy. But Ethan didn't, doubting the woman would appreciate it. Ethan's attention was slightly drawn to his pocket and his hand disappeared to ease his niffler's shuffling about that he didn't notice the smile.
