Nyx wanders over to the wizard in the green hat, curtseys once more and smiles sweetly at him.
Good sir, do you have any idea as to the last known whereabouts of your Matriarch? I mean, I know you don't know where she is now, but when and where was she last seen? Please?
The older man in the green hat nods at Nyx.
"Good to see such a glamorous mage in this rescue party. I am Archmagistrum Zed Ziegfried
, and our missing matriarch is my dear old mother. I am more than happy to answer any questions you have, although I honestly don't think you will be able to help us. But you are free to try of course! Who knows, I might be pleasantly surprised."
The man lets out a bellowing laughter, but cuts it short.
"I apologize, this is a serious matter, of course. My mother has now been missing for seven days, if I've counted correctly. She disappeared from her bedroom during the night, and we haven't been able to find a trace of her ever since. Her clothes are all still here, so it looks like she left in her night gown. My mother was wise beyond imagination, but she was also getting very old, and we all know what age can do to even the wisest of us."

"I'll go with your reasoning, Nyx" Althior then walked over to the High Conjurator Altair Ziegfried, introduced himself, and started asking questions.
"First, Why were you the one to alert us? Was it your duty as the High Conjurator?"
"When did you last see/talk to your grandmother?"
"Why are all your artifacts red? Is it in honor to you? Are you basically the leader of these people?"
"Is there anyone who had a particular dislike for your grandmother?"
"Were there any clues left behind?"
"Do you have an image of your grandmother? so we can know what she looks like?"
Althior eagerly waited for answers.
Altair Ziegfried raised his eyebrow at the multitude of questions.
"Let's see if I can remember everything you asked me... I will certainly answer to the best of my ability."
"I was the one who posted the plead for help because no one else would. You must excuse my family, but we tend to keep to ourselves. The rest of the city seems to think we are a bit strange, you see. I don't know why that is..."
"I personally saw my grandmother for the last time at the supper on the day before she disappeared. Everything seemed normal at that time, and we did not discuss anything special, at least not as far as I remember."
"I happen to like red, but they are not related to my position as High Conjurator. I am certainly not the leader of this family, my grandmother was, and now that she is missing, the duty falls to my father, the Archmagistrum. The ranks in the wizarding community are very complex, not something a novice mage like you could understand even if I explained it to you... Oh, I must apologize. I am being rude even though you are only trying to help us."
"Dislike? Well, she was a very strict and precise woman, but I believe every one of us looked up to her. I imagine it must not have been easy for my wife and my brother's wife to come into our family, though..."
"That is the strangest thing: there was no clues left behind. My father seems to believe she was dementic and just walked out of the manor, but all her belongings are exactly where they should be. Her bed was unmade when we found it empty, and all her clothes are still in place. None of the family members or the servants heard anything during the night. The front door was not opened, we have imbued it with magical seals to ensure that. She just seems to have vanished into thin air."
"There is a painting of her in the hallway. I can get Schuester fetch it for you, but it will take some time."
"Is that everything you want to ask from me?"
