It had been over 20 years since Rian had first started working in the Ministry of Magic. Fresh-faced out of Hogwarts with not a clue where he wanted his life to go in life, Rian thought it easiest to get an internship in the Ministry and see where he went from there.
Being born into a muggle family, the Muggle Liaison Office was one that instantly stood out for him. Over the past 20 or so years, it had been an interesting job, especially with the Second Wizarding War. However, during the height of that time, Rian decided it was best for his safety to go back to the green countryside of Northern Ireland until things died down. And so, afterwards, having been through a low-level war in Ireland which saw the death of his dad and brother and being through the Wizarding War which saw him isolated from society, Rian knew he wanted to work hard at promoting wizard-muggle relations upon his return.
Today, Rian would be having a young intern, like he once was, shadowing him for the day. He would give them a small taste of what he did every day and help them choose their own path in the Ministry.
Rian took a sip from his black coffee as he scribbled down vague to do notes for the day:
1. Meet Ms. Mudge
2. Show Ms. Mudge the offices
3. Call Mr. Harringford
4. Send owls to EU offices
Just as he finished writing his list, he heard a knock on the door. He jumped up, taking one last sip of coffee before answering the door to the young lady.
"Ah, Ms. Mudge" he said, his thick Northern Irish accent showing, "Come on in, I'm just finishing m'coffee." Rian turned around and headed back towards his desk, stocked high with pieces of parchment and old books.
"Apologies for the mess." he cleared the seat at the other side of his desk for her to sit down on. "Rian Mac Bradaigh," he held out his hand for her to shake, a grin on his face. "Or Rian Brady if it's easier."

The anniversaries are short lived
But they come back around at a breakneck speed
My world spins so fast
The centrifugal force keep me stuck in the middle
