When the children return home on the Hogwarts Express
<br><br>
<p>How long has it been, since Aurelien had to wait on somebody? Well there are those whom he works with, they on a daily basis make him wait for their reports. They could never get them in on time, and quite frankly it makes him infuriated. The old Frenchman wanted to have a tighter rein on the whole operation, but politics stood in his way. Of course they did, people had to make his life difficult at every turn. It’s almost like that is what they were put on this planet for. Causing the Roux patriarch undue stress. If only things were different.
<br><br>
But today is a different day, for some, it would even be considered a mixed bag. One filled with all sorts of emotions. Happiness, sadness, regret - maybe even anger. Yet it was just business for the sixty-six year old man. An old, long forgotten memory had come back to bite him. A child he had given up long ago, for lack of magic, has resurfaced and has a child of their own. One whom he had learned has special qualities. For a man like Aurelien, that alone would be enough to bring in perhaps someone useful. That is all there is to it.
<br><br>
The whole world pretty much served a singular purpose for Aurelien, how much power he could acquire through information. Everyone has a secret they wouldn’t want the world to know, and he’s the kind of man who would capitalize on that. To better gain the old pureblood house of Roux, a long and prosperous family based out of France. Yet just that alone isn’t enough for the old patriarch. It needs to be better, the best and the strongest. Of course that isn’t all, it needs to have the connections to all other families. If that means he needs an edge to get ahead, so be it.
<br><br>
Not only in that world, but in the world of business. He cannot get ahead if he’s left in the dark. Information is key to everything, and he aims to be the master of it. Though his success may vary, depending on how time will move forward. Standing on the platform awaiting the train, Aurelien stood tall in his pinstripe suit, fairly dark colours in contrast to the others who wore more dull colours. He didn’t betray any emotion he might have as he glanced around at the others waiting for their kin. Inside he felt disgust, few of them even looked like they were from money.
<br><br>
Luckily for the older man, it didn’t take long for the train to arrive from Hogwarts. He had a lot of questions as to why one of his grandchildren were attending this English school, instead of being at Beauxbatons, but he’ll soon have his answers. As the children scattered to meet up with their families, Aurelien just stood there off to the side. One hand smoothing out his suit jacket as another rested in his pocket. His blue eyes scanning those leaving the platform, looking for any that resemble the photograph that he had been given.
<br><br>
Slowly the station became emptier before he spotted her, standing off alone. She looks like the photograph, which means he’ll have to go introduce himself. The much older man supposes he must perform his grandfatherly duties, and bring her into the fold. At least up to a certain point. Besides, this will give his wife something to do. She’s been complaining that she rarely has anything to do nowadays. Moving away from the wall, he began his approach towards the young girl. His face straight as he approached.
<br><br>
Standing six foot two, he stopped a five feet away from her as she stood there looking around. “Excuse me, are you Risha Douglas?” he spoke, his voice having a slight French accent to it. After spending so much of his life in England, he has lost most of his accent when speaking their language. Good thing he spends time in France to accommodate that. “I am Aurelien Roux… and I’m your grandfather, and now caretaker.”

<p>Standing in his office, Aurelien peered outside the window staring down at the bustling street below. The wizards and witches scampering about in Diagon Alley to do their business for the day. Going to shops to pick up whatever item they currently need, to going off to the bank to procure some funds. Just another day here in London, one the Frenchman doesn’t particularly care for. Though it’s hard to find something he does care about nowadays. Besides his side activity and personal politics. Things he rarely brings into the workplace. Though that isn’t entirely true, as his side activity is collecting information - this very business of a newspaper feeds it.
<br>
<br>Readjusting the left sleeve of his jacket, the sixty-six year old man moved away from the window and approached his desk. Taking his seat, he pulled one of the articles that is to be reviewed for the next edition of the post. Donning his reading glasses, Aurelien began to read the article before him. Unlike some of the others, this seemed to be well written and actually pertains some actual importance. A piece of information about conflict between some smaller groups within the African wizarding community. Though really, the most important information within the article is about a wizard.
<br>
<br>A man who seems to have a certain amount of power there, and is skilled in at least dueling. This could prove useful for the Daily Prophet Editor-in-Chief. He’ll gather some more information about this man, dig into his personal life, his secrets. Aurelien will gather it all and turn it towards his favour. A man like this individual could prove useful for him. As Aurelien has enemies, and could potentially use this to add another into his pocket. A dominion of power. Information is key in any situation, and he wishes to always be ahead of the curve.
<br>
<br>Continuing his reading of the article, Aurelien folding his legs over one another. His right leg being over the left. Leaning back into his leather bound chair, he draped one hand over the armrest as he continued to read. Though sadly, the article didn’t go on to elaborate more about this person. He himself would have to dig more into this. But for now, he’ll give this article his stamp of approval and proceed to publish it in the next edition. Placing it into the acceptable pile, he reached for his cup of coffee that had cooled on his desk.
<br>
<br>Picking up the cup, he brought it to his lips and took a sip of the now cool coffee. Wasn’t particularly good, but it sufficed for its function. Another sip and he placed the cup back onto its small plate as he slowly turned in his chair. Still only using one arm, he reached forward towards a crystal bowl filled to the brim with neatly wrapped candies. Specifically taffy. It’s a simple pleasure, but it is one of Aurelien’s favourite treats. Grabbing one of the wrapped candies, he leaned back into his chair. Now lifting his other arm off the armrest and began to unwrap taffy treat.
<br>
<br>Putting it in his mouth, he tossed the wrapper into the trash bin that sat just next to his desk. Placing his elbows on to the armrests of his chair, he folded his arms across his lap. Slowly chewing on the taffy in his mouth. The mind started to race, maybe he should venture into Knockturn Alley and make some questions himself. Perhaps start at the White Wyvern Pub, get a feel for the atmosphere and find people who are more willing to talk. Or are least resistant to having their minds getting a quick once over.
<br>
<br>Though as Aurelien started to make his plans, a knocking sound echoed from his closed office door. He slowly blinked as he turned to look at the door. “Come in.” he called out, his accent still there, even though its been years. Aurelien looked at the individual who entered his office. “Yes? What is it?”

(Last week of June)

Aurelien stood next to his desk and stared at the clock. It was early in the morning, but there was a purpose for the old Frenchman to be in the office. It was the summer, and many of the graduate students at the wizarding schools will be coming to him to look for employment. This was a tedious time of the year for Aurelien. He’d prefer to be working on stories, instead he had to weed out those who aren’t worthy of working at the Daily Prophet.

He might as well start getting his office in even more tip top shape. All the books are in order, all the files, all the accolades and other assorted awards. The lion head bust, which adorns his desk, polished to shine and is in a position that no matter where you are in the room, it feels like it is staring at you. His desk is also in order, all the papers neatly stacked, his quill placed evenly on his table.

Everything was meticulously placed. Not a hair out of place, not even on himself. He had to appear proper, so did his office. His strawberry blond hair, though greying in parts, was neatly slicked back so that not a strand came loose. His beard, neatly trimmed. He looked respectable. Now he only hoped that those who came through his office doors looked the part as well.

Looking at the mirror in his office, he started to straighten his jacket. Just to be sure there was nothing out of place of course. After he had made sure of that, he went over to behind his desk and sat in his chair. It was five minutes to opening. This was going to be a long day. A long week. With a sigh, Aurelien placed his hands onto his desk and folded them on top of each other. He was now ready for the first wave.

The attack started early in the morning, and continued for what felt like hours. The ones who have perpetuated the attack hasn't come forward to claim responsibility and has left many casualties in its wake. The list of casualties is long, and we at the Daily Prophet expressed sadness over this senseless attack. Though we encourage vigilance against further ones, and from what understand the main target seemed to be the Muggle leader in Paris, which has left many wizard-kind dead and many more injured.

So far the aurors nor the muggles have released an official death count, but it is suspected (due to the damage caused) to be high. Information is scarce and the governments are tight lipped. If any of those who have witnessed this attack care, please inform the Daily Prophet of what you have seen so that we may cover even more of what had transpired.

Will update as new information is brought to our attention here at the Daily Prophet.

UPDATE: One who was within the area and had witnessed the attack claimed it was perpetuated by muggles, and it drew in by-standing wizards and witches into the fray. We at the Prophet are saddened to learn about such things, to know that lives were lost in such a fashion. Hopefully we'll learn from this and have a tighter security. Hopefully those in charge in France will learn from this outrageous event.
