The Hog's Head

Hogs Head Interior

The Hog's Head Inn is an inn and pub in Hogsmeade. The bar at the Hog's Head comprises one small, very dirty, and dingy room that has bay windows that are so encrusted with filth that you can barely see through them. The place is full of rough wooden tables that generally have nothing except the stubs of candles sitting upon their surfaces. The stone floor of the place is so dirty that it looks as though there is not a floor at all, but instead that the building is simply built on open ground. Come sit down at one of tables or at the bar, and The Hog's Head's current owner and operator will serve you a beverage.

He was sat at the bar, drinking a butterbeer (it's a school night after all). He checks his pocketwatch, knowing full well to expect Tristan to be late.

Well, Tristan is predictably late, but he does have a reason for it - he couldn't find his saw-scaled viper, and he thought it would be good to bring it along with his boomslang, whose shed skin is a common potions ingredient. He wants to show he's taking this seriously (well, as seriously as Tristan le Fey takes anything. Sauntering into the bar a full ten minutes late, he wastes no time in taking the seat beside Søren and saying, "Non-alcoholic? Wonder how long that'll last."

He raises an eyebrow. "This is a butterbeer? There's alcohol in this?" He says, pretty sure he's correct, "Right?" He asks the bartender. "Anyway, never mind that. You're late. Wonder how long that'll last." He says, only half joking.

The look Tristan gives Søren is slightly pitying, and he says, "Not nearly enough to get you through this, old man. And I'm actually early, by my standards."

He takes a sip and orders another for Tristan. "You want to impress the Parade? You show up on time." He says, pushing the stein over to him. "Now. Formalities." He says, straightening up. "Why don't we go around the circle and introduce ourselves? You can start."

Looks like Tristan won't be impressing the Parade, then - he makes a note to work on it, and takes a sip from the stein. But not before a serpentine head pokes its way out of his sleeve and tastes the air, giving him the all clear. He's pretty sure they won't poison him, but this is Parade training, so he's not taking any chances. "I'm Tristan," is all he says.

He chuckles, "I didn't take you for a man of few words. I'm Soren." He says, "I don't know what you've heard, or know, but I'm actually looking forward to this. I've heard some pretty good things about you." He says. "But if this is going to work, I need more. I want to know what your aspirations for the parade are. Why are you joining? What do you want to specialise in? Where do you...fit into the machine that Sabrina created?"

Tristan shrugs, nonchalant, and says, "Tessa said at the Christmas dinner that I can have a basilisk if I join, so I'm joining." He takes another sip from his stein. "I have absolutely no idea what goes on in Auntie Sab's head, but I'm good with snakes, and you're a poisoner, so I've guessing venoms. Which is why I brought this guy!" He lets his saw-scaled viper out onto the bar.

Soren keeps his face expressionless, listening to the boy's words. He feels as though Tristan needs a direction to head towards besides just...having a basilisk. "Right. But what do you bring, beyond a menagerie of snakes?" He asks, an eyebrow raised. "Let's say, for arguments' sake you don't manage to breed a Basilisk into adulthood. What purpose is left for Tess to not slit your throat?"

He inclines his head towards the snake on the bar, which promptly curls itself up and starts rubbing its scales together to make a kind of sizzling noise - the warning sound of a saw-scaled viper. "Do you know that these kill somewhere between 5,000 and 20,000 people a year in India?" But he knows that's not really answering the question, and sighs. "Honestly, the truth is, I don't really have much beyond snakes. I was on the duelling team for Durmstrang, but somehow I don't think that's worth much in the Parade, is it?"

He considers this. Tristan doesn't seem the type who's willing to commit to potioneering for the rest of his life. The snakes, and the duelling. "You'd make a fair assassin. If you learn to duel dirty." He assesses. "How would that sound? We don't have to stick with it. But if you can grasp martial magic plus with your little killing pets, you'd be pretty dangerous."

"They're not pets," he says immediately, hissing something vaguely reassuring to his rather offended-looking viper. "And some of them understand what you're saying. I even met a boa constrictor that can read. But yeah, I think assassination probably suits my skillset best. Snakes are too conspicuous in most countries to spy, and they're shit thieves." He remembers the time he tried to get an adder to pickpocket for him with a wince.

He sips his drink, listening to the boy's every word. "My apologies to your.....reptillian relatives? I can work with that. Though I'm not sure this will be the best place to meet for training in future if this is the route we go down." He considers. "How's your knowledge of venoms?"

"He forgives you," Tristan nods almost to himself, taking another drink. "I usually just go on whatever they tell me about their own venom," he inclines his head towards the snake as he says this. "Vipers can choose whether or not to inject it, spitting cobras can spit it at you, but other snakes can't do either. I do know the vague groupings of which snakes will do what, but to be honest I wouldn't know it off the top of my head. Or doses."

This is where he lights up. Tristan can tell this is Soren's speciality. "So it's a better start than most. Venom is the tip of an iceberg. Even muggles can use venom on its own. It's the combination with magical ingredients where you can do some serious damage." He explains. "Also, I want to get you used to making antivenoms, too. If you're going to be bringing the snakes into the citadel, we'll need to make sure we're being safe. Plus things can go wrong." He thinks. "I'm gonna throw you a bone, because I believe in you, kid." He says. "Talk to me about this basilisk."

Tristan listens intently to everything Søren says, then nods. "Antivenoms are good for longer-acting venoms, too, if you want to scare someone into giving you information, right? Just have them bitten and taunt them a bit," he picks up his viper, which is slowly edging its way to the other side of the table, and drapes it round his neck like some kind of scarf. "My basilisk! Well, I've read everything Herpo the Foul wrote about it since Durmstrang doesn't care about the dark arts, and it's really very simple to get one - you have to hatch a chicken egg under a toad. I'd hatch one now if I could, but I think someone might notice at school."

He thinks on this, finishing his stein of Butterbeer. "You know what kid, let's do it. We'll say it's part of your training. Leave the location to me. I can cash in a favour with Sabrina." He says, beginning to speak in half-sentences as he thinks aloud. "Say, you must have been down to the Chamber of Secrets at school, right?"

"Merlin, really?" Tristan asks, sounding suddenly like a child who's just been told he can have a new bike. "The only real problem with raising one is the eyes, but I can just blindfold it until it's old enough to understand that it needs to close them when I'm around, and it'll be fine. I've read that basilisks are actually usually pretty sweet-tempered." He drinks again from his stein. "And yeah, I've been down. We had an accidental party there," he informs. "There's still a body there, but I haven't checked for venom yet - should I?"

Oskar was at one of the dusty chairs in the corner with a pad of paper and his guitar he had since he was a child. He felt relaxed, calm, not dealing with the constant stresses that he had felt for the past five or so years. It was a temporary thing, he knew, and soon his anxieties would be making their way back into his mind, but for now he was alone with his songwriting and music. The owner left him alone, gave him peace when he came down from his rented room upstairs, which worked well for Oskar. The dusty pub had become a safe haven for him and it worked well. It was a Sunday afternoon and it had been quiet, not a lot of people passing through its doors, save for a few elderly members of society.

Iseult was supposed to be meeting her brother for a drink but he was probably distracted. Anyway she was sipping on a butter beer quietly, but couldn’t help notice just how loudly the rather attractive guy at the table next to her was thinking. It was all rather vague, though, he seemed to be calm, but anxious because he was calm and it was all rather abstract. She decided to turn to him, “What are you writing?” She asked, giving him one of her winning smiles, whilst also looking at his notepad, bemused at the lack of quill and Parchment. How very...retro.

Oskar had never gotten into the quill and parchment and was quite happy with his fine tipped pen and paper. He never had the time for smudges that covered his words, or the frustration when he ran out of ink. Suppose you could blame his muggle upbringing and he knew how jarring that could be in this world. When he heard a voice, Oskar looked up, assuming she was speaking to someone else, but was proven wrong and smiled back, but only mildly charmed by it. "Songs. Music. Art. People call it a wide array of things, what have you," he responded before tapping his guitar. "Things I don't want to keep in my head."

She chuckles. "And what sort of things do you not want to keep in your head?" She asks quizzically. He's a bit harder to read than normal. Almost as though he's built walls in his head.

If he knew that she was a legilimen (admittedly, the whole prospect of it flew over his head. Layton once tried to explain it to him and he was rather dizzy by the end of it), then he might have moved on. He didn't need a stranger picking through his head. Still, he was oblivious. "Would it be corny to say everything I think of? Thoughts and feelings are overrated, no?" He suggested with a quick, rather cheeky, smile.

She crosses her legs and leans back, "Massively corny." She returns the smile. "That's a bleak outlook to share with someone you met at the pub." She toys. "Thoughts and feelings are what keep us honest."

"Maybe, but it I don't believe it's a bleak outlook that isn't a rare sight nowadays," Oskar responded with a shrug. In truth, he didn't really mind sharing dark thoughts to a stranger-who would she tell? He had little to lose. Having loose lips wasn't going to do him any harm. "Sure, maybe they do, but only when you share them. How honest can you be when you compartmentalise everything you think and feel into different boxes in your brain. Better to get it out onto a page, no?"
