Aurelian arrived promptly ten minutes early for his meeting with Alistair and took it upon himself to patiently wait outside the door until the exact time he was meant to arrive. Using the back of his knuckles, the man rapped on the wooden door three times before standing back to adjust his cufflink as he waited for Alistair's cue to enter the office.

When someone turned up ten minutes early, it told Alistair that they were most likely over eager. He was in the middle of doing something and was rather disgruntled when he realised he was interrupted. Using his wand, the doors swung open to show Alistair shuffling some papers around on his desk. "You must be...?" Alistair didn't remember last names.

It was in his nature to be prompt, especially after being raised by an anal lawyer - which is what made him so perfect for the personal assistant's occupation. "Aurelian Cromwell, sir. It's a pleasure to meet you," he easily lied and applied a charming little smile.

"Cromwell?" He repeated, "like Oliver Cromwell?" Alistair seemed almost impressed by the last name, despite the man being muggle. How could Alistair not respect a man who took over England following a civil war? Seemed like his type of guy. "So you want to be my personal assistant? What makes you good enough for that?"

The man stepped into his office and wordlessly flicked his wand, allowing it to promptly close behind him. Slipping the wand up his sleeve, Aurelian adjusted his tie and allowed a lazy smile to occupy his face. "Precisely. Our family turned from muggle to strictly pureblood over the years. We were set into arranged marriages to prevent being tainted by muggle blood but Oliver is from another defiant branch." His sugar coating slipped so easily from his mouth that the prejudice seemed natural and likely exactly what Alistair wanted to hear from someone applying to be his personal assistant. Even if he didn't much care about blood status being linked to social status, pretending he did allowed room for Alistair to be impressed.

Alistair nodded as he listened to what he had to say. Of course, even with a drop of muggle blood, Aurelian wasn't pureblood. To Alistair anyway. But, Alistair found himself not minding. It was too far back in time. They fixed themselves up by then. "It's not an easy job, it's busy. I don't go easy on you. I have had people leave because of it. Are you sure you're up for it?"

"My father was a very intense man, Mr. Fitzgerald. By any standard, his drive could have maybe even trumped yourself - and I mean no offence by that. What I'm getting at is that if I can handle an anal lawyer of father and a military man no less, I can handle anything you throw my way. I was born for this job and I'm good at what I do, sir." The man provided him with a copy of his resume and several references in his favor. "I'm here to make your busy life less hectic."

"That's a good selling line," he said, barely looking over the resume. Alistair judged on character, not experience. He stood up to pour a glass of whiskey, naturally the finest you could get your hands on, to offer to Aurelian, "you'd make a good businessman."

"I considered it when I was fresh out of school," he mused lowly and took the glass of whiskey from the older man. Refusing to note that he was more of a scotch man, Aurelian took a small yet polite sip and directed his attention toward the minister. "Maybe in another life time."

As the advisor to the minister, Bailey felt as though it was his duty to make sure Alistair didn't make any stupid or impulsive decisions. However, since the new minister had been in office it seems as the that was all he was doing. Having been in Alistair's position as minister, as well as being advisor to the past minister Julius, Bailey knew his way around going about certain things; and in regards to the half-breeds in the wizarding community, Alistair was not making a wise decision. Therefor, hoping to talk some sense into his new boss, Bailey knocked on the minister's door.

Alistair used his wand to have the door swing open, sitting behind his desk, tapping on a computer. Naturally he had made sure his technology was going to work the moment he stepped into this place. "Jeon Bailey," he said. Of course, he never really paid attention to the boy when he was minister. Not worth Alistair's time, honestly. Disgusting period of Wizarding history. So he didn't realise his quite obvious mistake. "May I help you?"

Bailey knew Alistair was a piece of work, but he couldn't even say his name right? Bailey was a former minister and with that came a lot of media exposure. He figured Bailey would at least have heard of him before. "It's Bailey Jeon," he responded while trying to keep his composure. Having to already hide his true feelings wasn't a good sign. "Anyways sir. I was hoping I could speak to you not only as your advisor but also a former minister. You know, regarding all these laws you'd like to pass."

"What about them?" Alistair asked. Ferlen had just left and another one had popped up. Pray he wasn't going to have each head line up outside to complain about this or that. Nuisances. He felt himself bristle at the reminder about who Bailey was. A mutt like him didn't deserve to be minister.

Crossing his arms as he watched the man for a second, trying to control his facial reactions as to not hint at how much hatred Bailey felt for the man. "I think you know why I'm here, Alistair." He started, surprising himself with how calm he actually was. "As your advisor it's my job to make sure you don't do anything that reflects poorly on the ministry and you, and with all due respect these... decisions will do just that."

"I don't think it will respect poorly on anyone. In fact I believe it will benefit the community, keep it safe," he responded, looking carefully over at the previous minister. The only reason Alistair wasn't firing him on the spot was for the PR. "I'm sure you'll see the positive results soon enough."

Arms still crossed, Bailey shook his head at the minister in disagreement. "With all do respect, I honestly wont see the positive results at all in this. You're putting people in the British wizarding community in a precinct and for what reason other than something none of them can help?"

"Am I a menace, or are you just mad that everyone seemed to care a lot more about me, the first non-wizard minister, than they do about you?" He paused for a second, taking a deep breath to calm himself down. "And for the record, they really aren't a menace and the wizarding community was living rather peacefully alongside them before these new rules were put into place."

"Careful Mr. Jeon," he warned, "I won't hesitate to take measures against you if you appear to be too untrustworthy. You're meant to be my advisor, not anything else. And of course you would believe that they lived in peace before," he responded, picking up the daily prophet. "I do not accept any of my employees spreading false ideas within my community. Now I suggest you leave this office before I decide to throw you into the precinct where you belong."

Was Bailey willing to risk his entire career for what was right? Partially, but he also couldn't do that to his family. They needed him he rather than in the precinct. "Let it be known that I'm not the only one who is spreading these so called false ideas throughout the community, and you'd be wise to listen to your advisor." He said blandly before walking towards the door and leaving Alistair's office.

The father raps the door firmly, then takes a step back. He's dressed in a grey suit that happens to compliment his eyes. With what the minister put out, he's fairly confident the minister will enjoy his point of view, although, he may have to occult certain professional things out of necessity.

Alistair swung the door up open five minutes later, dressed in an expensive, tailored, black suit. He stared at Luis for a moment, shoving away a thought, before gesturing for him to come inside. "Mr. Vicardo," he said as he slipped into the chair. Alistair was still dealing with the...responses of the policies and they were time consuming.

"Vicario," he corrects smoothly. "It's a pleasure to meet you." Luis strides to the obvious interview chair, taking a silent seat. He flicks his eyes around the room. "You're a man of fine taste, I see." There's a note of approval in his voice. "I've always found mundane offices to reflect a certain lack of...character shall we say, in people." His smile comes close to a sneer

Alistair looked over to Luis, his eyebrow raising but he grunted in approval, smiling. Naturally, someone stroking his ego like that was going to do wonders. "You'll find everything in here is at least two thousand galleons minimum and a collectible. That painting was done in the 17th century," he said, gesturing to a painting next to the door. If one was an art expert, they could probably point out it was painted in the 19th century, not the 17th. "Scotch?" He asked as he walked over to the counter where the alcohol was waiting.

Not an art history buff, he fails to catch the discrepancy. "Fascinating. I normally just buy whatever seems to be unattainable," he laughs with false good nature. "Don't mind if I do," he says in reference to the scotch. "I hope your taste in dΓ©cor reflects in your taste in scotch." It's a small tease, but generally these are good tools to make someone feel more comfortable with him.

Alistair laughed at that, his deep booming laugh, and poured two drinks, being generous with the amount. Grabbing a glass, he offered it out to Luis. "I think you'll find that I am," he said, "you'll find I only accept the best. So why the ministry?"

Luis takes a sip of the scotch, lip bending upward to signify his enjoyment of the alcohol. "Opportunity. They say when one door closes, another opens right? I'm a businessman by trade but I've done some politics in the past, I was an ICW representative for Mexico. Really, I've become somewhat enamored with the UK. Moreso now that I know the ministry will look out for my core values." The reference is, of course, in regards to the recent policies. "I asked myself, what could I do for the cause? And I realized, I would gladly serve such a great administration, to make sure that these core values are reflected well with other pieces of administration. I may not have ever bn a department head, but I'm an effective leader." He smiles fully, taking a long draw from his glass. "I have a lot of ideas."

Good question. Luis sloshes the rest of his scotch, then finishes it off. Mexicans know how to drink. "Well, I think that I respect all the work the auror's are doing, really, but we need to treat these creatures like the animals they are. " A planned but brief look of disgust crosses his face. "My children are telling me that...word is there are some half freaks resisting. I think we should encourage wizards to be good Samaritans. Add some incentive towards the reporting of lying half breeds. On top of that, I think we should send a strong message to these sneaky creatures that lying will not be tolerated. I think The department for regulation and control should create a task force to collect these reported liars and deport them." He smiles in a way that conveys no mirth. "I'm a very rich man too. If funds are needed to fund this, I'd gladly chip in. The safety of our community is the most important thing to me."

Not many people I can trust in here but I'm hoping I can find myself trusting you." Turning his eyes onto Luis, he found himself having no other questions or worries. Luis was his man.

He'd frown slightly wondering how the Minister had heard that given that he'd only said it a few minutes ago. Still...the Minister didn't seem overly upset so clearly he hadn't been able to eavesdrop on their conversation. He'd make sure his tone was reasonable. "Sir, with all respect I need those Heads to be able to accomplish your goals. Kit has a knowledge of what types of half-breeds live in here, who they are, and where they live. Without him it will take much longer to round them up or identify them for the list. Tamara's has close relationships with the ICW members and will be able to keep them off your back or from asking too many questions while we're building the army and such. If we don't have anyone there an official ICW investigation could begin and they'd find out what's going on before we're ready and could attack us to stop us before we can defend against something like that. As for Cyril without him we don't have a tech department or any chance of a space program. He's irreplaceable with his tech knowledge. I'll talk to all three and make sure they're on board and loyal but without them some of your goals will be delayed and others become impossible."

It felt a little surreal being back in London for Siobhan, half because it was a place she attached with so many memories but also because the last time she was here properly she was a seventh year student getting ready at King's Cross Station - not the Irish Minister for Magic. Though to pay mind to such a thing was trivial and, quite frankly, she didn't have the time. She was here on official business; to welcome the newest British Minister for Magic, a person she'd work closely with. She'd been told to make herself comfortable in his office by some of his PAs and she did just that - pouring herself a glass of water and looking out the window that oversaw the majority of the Ministry. It was a breathtaking sight - one she could see herself getting used to.

It took Alistair almost twenty minutes to arrive into the office. He had some meetings with a few heads of departments and it kept him behind schedule.

She gave the window a quick glance before her gaze returned to Alistair. Taking a few steps forward, she extended her arm, "It's a pleasure to meet Mr. Tyrrell's successor."

Alistair took a once over of the Irish minister, not even denying to himself that he found himself pleasantly surprised with how she looked. He didn't expect much. Alistair took her hand, shaking it, gentler than he usually did. "Certainly correct, the view is better than I was told, though I've seen better," he responded. Alistair had his own opinions on Mr. Tyrrell. Such as 'isn't it a pleasure to see someone better take the office?'. "High time we met, I'm sure. I hope you're finding London comfortable?"
