Hello, everyone! I'm back!

First of all, to all my students, I must apologize for my unnanounced absence. I got called away for a bit regarding my grandfather's estate, and the message seemed quite urgent, so I walked there as fast as I could.

And on that note, yes, I walked there. To Glasgow and from Glasgow. In retrospect, I can't imagine why I chose to do that instead of simply apparating. It would have been faster, and now my legs hurt a bit... Perhaps I was feeling nostalgic? My mind was in a difficult place, if I remember correctly, so that could have something to do with it. Walking has always cleared my head, at least.

In any case, I won't bore you all with the details of my trip because I'd really rather not talk about it, so, how has Hogwarts fared while I was away? Can't believe we lost. Damn. Studying hard, aren't we? If anyone is looking toward working on extra credit or needs help with DADA, my office hours should be posted at my door. I've extended the hours quite a bit to make up for lost time, so feel free to stop by!

[ooc; strikes hackabale to his friends/acquaintances. Except for that Quidditch bit. That's hackable to Gryffindors/Gryffindor teachers only. Also~! For anyone interested, how's about this? The Durandal's Pensieve broke. Getting it fixed took all the time Tobi was home, but he isn't about to admit to that because, well, what was his grandfather doing with a Pensieve, hmm?]

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]]
