So why fight it?

The girl's tone was friendly enough that, even though her words were less than enthusiastic, Kir didn't really get any kind of negative vibe from her. She didn't exactly seem bubbly but people could be nice without being effusive, and he was naturally inclined to chalk any negativity up to things like homesickness or still finding her feet. He tended to give people the benefit of the doubt, and charitable nature was something that ran in the family, though in rather a more literal sense. Kir's family ran a foundation which helped Purebloods who had been rejected by, or had chosen to reject, their families. This came with involvement in lots of attendant issues, such as Muggleborn and LGBTQ rights, these being the primary sources of disagreement or fall out in such families. Having grown up around kindness and compassion, he tended to a gentle and easy going sort, though very capable of fighting a corner if he felt it necessary.

"Sounds like we make quite the team then," he smiled, when she introduced herself by her own house's qualities. "I'm Kir," he added. "K-i-r. It's Scottish," he explained. Whilst the female version, Kira, was common enough, people were often confused by his name. They also mispronounced it if they saw it written first, saying it to rhyme with 'fir' rather than 'fear' when it was meant to be the latter.

"So, I found last year that it's a good idea to include at least something about wizard interactions with creatures in things like this - what to do if you find an injured Clabbert in your garden, or conservation projects if it's something endangered. After all, it's *Care of* Magical Creatures, not just creature class. Beyond that, I don't really mind what we put in. Anything you'd like to focus on?" he asked.

          “Sounds good,” Kir nodded at Jen’s suggestions. To be fair, she could have said pretty much anything and Kir would have been amicable and agreeable. Perhaps, if it had been totally off-topic or... more
