“Mr. Murakami,” he acknowledged him by his name. A respectful relationship between student-Professor was imperative in learning atmosphere. Otherwise the whole learning experience could go wrong, very wrong. Jacob’s personality wasn’t one that made people seek him as a friend. When he was younger, he had been friendlier and opened, but after becoming a Healer he had changed drastically into a more reserved person. He took his job seriously, and he didn’t want to jeopardize it for anything. His social life had become almost nonexistent, getting attached with people that were work-driven just like he was. There was no point in wasting one’s time with anything. Because of that, Jacob had come to be the Administrator of the Virginia Magical Hospital. Perseverance and hard-work was what made people succeed in their endeavors.
“No problem,” he answered to his query. Jacob looked at the boy, “You may touch my hand to feel the movement.” There was no need to make this more difficult for the student, really.

It disappeared quickly, because it wasn’t directed to an injured body.
“Do you have any questions?” his tone was a mixture of strictness and authority. Jacob’s goal was for his students to see him as a teacher, nothing else. He was willing to help those that wanted it, but they needed to be committed to it. Otherwise, he wouldn’t hesitate in failing them. He wanted to weed the major from weak-willed individuals. The course would only get harder with each class.
"Murakami, Sascha," Sascha said, the man's gruff and authoritative tone reminding him rather sharply of one of his sensei's back home that he automatically gave his name in Japanese order. "I'm... more
“You are welcome, Mr. Murakami.” Jacob was here to teach and it felt good when he did. All he wanted with this new position was to mold the future healers of the wizarding world. He had his time as a ... more
"Nothing, thank you again, Healer McMurray-sensei." Sascha answered with a smile. He was greatly relieved that the professor was willing to let him do what he needed to to make the spell functional... more
