Another tragedy and I... I did what I could but... when they started casting killing curses, I... froze up. In all these years, I haven't changed at all, have I? How is it that I am still so naïve?

I'll be in the hospital until further notice. It's going to take a group effort to keep Yukimi in his room. If he tears open his wound again, it's only going to make things worse. [strikes hackable to friends] Although I haven't been here long enough to know the victims of the attack personally, my heart goes out to their family and friends. Although losing a loved one can sometimes seem unbearable, it's important to keep moving forward and living for their sake.

To my students, I'm afraid I won't have time to correct your assignments quite yet, so if you haven't handed them in, feel free to do so. You have until the end of the month. I'll likely be heading back to Hogwarts once this is over to do what I can for those students who are unable to return home, so sending it by owl is fine.

[Hackable to staff, though by mistake]
What happened was unforgivable. I know the casualties were minimal all things considered, but...! There's no reason why anyone should have had to die in the first place! I should have done more.... I failed again.

Well, I'm certainly glad that's over with. Being fifteen made moving in rather difficult, not to mention that I felt more like a student than a teacher for a while... Thankfully I wasn't treated too cruelly, so that was an improvement.

In any case! I apologize for the delay, everyone. As you hopefully know, starting next Monday, I'll be teaching Hufflepuffs and Gryffindors in Defense Against the Dark Arts. If I could get a roll call set up in the meantime, that would be wonderful.

If all goes well, I'll have the rules and your assignments posted up by next week. In the meantime, if anyone wants to come talk to me about anything pertaining to the class, I'm available in my office most afternoons. Of course, you're free to stop me in the halls if you see me and have a question as well.

That's all for now. Hope to see you all next week.

As if returning to Hogwarts and taking that wretched train weren't difficult enough, why am I fifteen again?! It's not exactly a time I want to revisit... Try as I might, I can't seem to undo whatever spell is causing this. There don't seem to be any other side-effects, so I'll stop by the hospital later, perhaps.

I-in any case, hello everyone! My name is Thobari Durandal Kumohira. You don't have to worry about the Kumohira part, since that's a bit hard to say. Just Professor Thobari or Professor Durandal is fine. And I'll just get this out of the way by adding that my name is pronounced Tobari, as if the "h" wasn't there. Just like the Thames, get it?

I may not look it right now, but I assure you, I am your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. To my students; I'm certain that this year you'll learn plenty of new things, and it's my duty to make sure that you make the best of this term. So no slacking off just because I'm new, alright?

To the teachers, I'm honored to be joining a renowned institution such as this and I hope we can work together to make sure our students become outstanding wizards and witches.

And please don't listen to anything Yukimi says about me. He's a wonderful man, [the ink here looks especially dark] don't get me wrong, but he and I were... friends back in high school, so his opinion may be a bit... biased.

[[ooc; replies will be done with [livejournal.com profile] runstoireland, since Thobari looks 15]]
