New Arrival~ [Backdated to earlier in the evening

WHO: Jarvis and Open
WHAT: Arriving at the school
WHERE: Courtyard and Main Entrance
WHEN: Early evening October 27th

This was it.

Jarvis looked up at the large mansion – even larger than the one in Malibu (but smaller than the Tower in New York City that was undergoing repairs) – that was to be his new home for the rest of his education years. A place for people like him, and Tony had shown him the information he had gathered on the Institute. Tony hadn't been happy about sending Jarvis off to boarding school, but his education needed to be finished before he could apply to college or just further his career and experiences back in California.

A dust cloud formed up as the taxi started off, leaving Jarvis with the order that Tony had given him – finish his education and then come back to Malibu. Easy enough, right? Only now there wasn’t a Malibu to go home to. The news had come while he was on the plane and suddenly he had understood how a computer felt to ‘freeze up’.


Steeling himself with a deep breath, he picked up his suitcase and started through the gates. The entrance courtyard was nice, and had the potential to be a nice study area. It took his mind off of Malibu for a moment as he attempted to familiarize himself with the new surroundings. Already the sun was dipping below the horizon and he hadn't realized just how late he'd be arriving. That wouldn't do - Jarvis hated tardiness.

Stopping at the door, he looked for a doorbell, a knocker, then shrugged. He wouldn’t be rude and just barge in. Jarvis had better manners than that after all. He thought he heard his knock resound in the room beyond the door as his knuckles gave a firm few knocks.

“Hello? I’m a new arrival at this school, a transfer to say the least. I wasn’t informed of who to contact upon arriving though—“

Alric gave him a brief, penetrating look, apparently not completely convinced of just how ready he was... but he nodded. Not really his decision to make, after all, but he'd be keeping an eye on this new arrival. He smiled politely, with just a hint of something stern under it.

"Mm. If you're sure. Probably best you don't overdo it on your first day, though." Just a brief pause to change gears. "And... yes, if you like, I can show you the residential wing, first. We can put your things in my room until you're ready to pick them up, if that's all right with you."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

sorry I'm such a slowbie lately x.x

Alric flashed a polite (albeit slightly amused at something) smile, and nodded.

"...not 'sir' just yet, I'm afraid, but it's quite all right."

Of course, it was a matter of public record that he was a Knight Errant of the Most Prestigious Order of the Dragon. As with all Kaithenian knightly orders (according to wikipedia, at least), that required the completion of an Errancy (like the knightly equivalent of a thesis) to earn full knighthood as a Knight Ensign.

"This way, then."

He wasted no time, guiding Jarvis to the boys' dorm, and to his room, opening the door for him, and gesturing inside.

"Wherever you like, then."

Alric chuckled and shook his head, raising a hand in a soothing gesture.

"It's quiet all right. I can certainly understand how jarring a bit of culture shock can be."

Once Jarvis had set his things down, he shut the door once again, eyebrows raised slightly at the question.

"Ah, Kaitheny. A small nation in northwestern Europe, if it's not familiar. I'm afraid we aren't exactly the most influential player on the world stage."

He smiled to himself pensively at that, leading the way back.

"And yourself..?"
