MISSION: Conversations with Commanders, part one

Wednesday, 8:00 hours.

Mission Report:
Since the signal has been given, I've found the various commanders of the Order to be a bit... restless.  As such, I've been able to get some time with them and have asked them a few questions.  I think you will find their answers most enlightening.

I was only able to get in touch with commander DrusillaWormwood this week.  I hope to speak with all of the commanders in turn.

My interview went as follows:

Name (RavId): DrusillaWormwood
Command: Central Command
It's often been heard that during the first wizarding war, Dumbledore created a way for Order members to speak to each other via talking patronuses... patroni?  Moving on - what form does your patronus take?
My patronus takes the form of a raven.

What's your non-order day job?
I work at the family business, Slug and Jiggers Apothecary in Diagon Alley.  I am a Potions Master and Herbologist, especially skilled in poisons and antidotes.  I do some contract work for the Ministry from time to time, and I put in some volunteer hours every month at St. Mungos Hospital for Magical Maladies.

What's your hidden talent?
I invented the spell that conjures tequila.

What made you want to take a lead role in the Order?
Even though my pure blood heritage and family history of Slytherin seem somehow opposed to the Order ideals, we are not a family of dark witches and wizards.  We have always supported the goals and ideals which the Order represent, and in the great effort against He-who-must-not-be-named, my family allowed the Order use of our facilities when needed and passed intel to the Order whenever possible.  Although I am the first in the family to formally join the Order, I'm hardly the first to be involved in helping them.

What was your first mission you undertook for the Order?
My first official Mission was actually very mundane, but put my expertise to good use.  I was asked to test various potions ingredients and check them for purity and adulterations.  There had been several attempts on the part of the Death Eaters to pass poisons and cursed substances into circulation and into the stores at Hogwarts through various sources, so I spent many months moving between Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, testing potions ingredients for many hours.  Not exactly exciting and glamorous, but my work insured the safety of our supply stores.

Anything else you want to add?
Not at this time.

I hope this report proves most informative for you.  I will report again once I have had a chance to speak with another commander.
