Being stationed at Hogwarts as her last step of training was the best thing Rai could ask for. Not that she didn't mind moving on and all that, but it was nice to be able to keep Hogwarts safe from all the darkness that happened last year, to prevent it from happening again. They had a few aurors stationed there last year, due to the kid who was killed on the train, but not nearly as many as were there now. The Minister at Mrs. Granger were really putting the hammer down on things. Not to mention the Headmasters warnings and words at the banquet. She knew that things were going to get bad again, as much as she didn't want to. The worst part was that she knew her half brother, Uriah, would be involved. It was obvious, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he ever flat out told her that he was one of them.
She had been kidnapped too, back in April, and the experience had a different effect on her than it did on a lot of the other kidnapees. She wasn't afraid, for the most part. More than anything she came back with a stronger conviction than ever to take those people down, especially after she heard about what had happened to Marcia and Cain in there. Cain, being part vampire, had a hard time around blood, of course, and the kidnappers had taken Marcia, cut her up a bit, and then thrown her in a cell with a starving Cain. That in itself was enough to send Rai to Auror training, even if she wasn't planning on going already.
Walking around the perimeter of the Hogwarts grounds, Rai tried to shake off the memory of seeing Marcia like that, especially now that she was gone. She kept her arms at her sides and her wand in her hand as she kept her eyes out for trouble. She partly hoped that the baddies would wait to stir something up, but she also just wanted them to show themselves sooner rather than later...
