Jodie took a seat, glancing around at the people. Okay, clearly a male-dominated world, but that was to be expected in security, right? So they were likely impressed or unimpressed to know she was so involved.
"Well, as Simon said, I'm Jodie Watts." She spoke, shaking Caleb's hand before giving a small smile to the group. "I'm a bit of a multitasker for Mrs Iver - I'm primarily a jazz singer for her clubs and socials, but she has also taken me on for my abilities. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to tell you but...I presume that since you are Mr Iver's personal security, you will need to know all other employees' roles, right? I'm a Metamorphmagus, so Mrs Iver likes me to use disguises to get close to people she suspects, doesn't like, or wants information on. So sometimes I play the role of a plain waitress or steward, sometimes I act as a portly high-society gentleman, and sometimes I play the role of a famous culinary chef."
"I often try not to play people I know personally - more like using people's looks I see on the street, adapting to the role they play, and going with the flow. Otherwise, it gets weird and confusing."
Of course, that didn't mean she never played people she knew personally, but she did prefer not to. Simon didn't need to know her preferences. She looked to Ivan, smiling a little. She needed to get close to this one.
"So you're the boss, right? Nice to meet you; I hope my abilities and talents will be of some use for you in any subtle operations." She pressed her hand forward, gesturing for a handshake.
