Odin wasn't surprised one bit when it was Andris who was the first to the meeting. They had always been close since his aunt and uncle took him in. There was just some invisible glue that had connected them that first meeting and they had been friends ever since. "It's nice to see you, Andris. I hope your family is doing well," he offered a small smile in return. Although the meeting was serious, it didn't mean there couldn't be the faintest of casualness to the way everyone was going to treat each other.
Odin's eyes lit up when Iselda wandered through the door. The small smile he had offered Andris had grown into a full fledged smile. "Iselda, it had been some time. I hope your summer is going well," he was genuine in his questioning. When it came to Iselda, he was always genuine. Perhaps it was his feelings that caused him to be extremely friendly towards the girl. Whatever the reason, it wasn't going away any time soon.
Odin couldn't help the chuckle when Steffi arrived. There was just something about the girl that made the heaviness in the air just disappear. Perhaps it was her personality. She just had one of those personalities that could brighten every mood. It was quite welcomed. "Hey, Steffi. Doing well, I hope." He smiled. He couldn't find it within himself to not offer her a smile.
Then Ilsa arrived. Odin blinked at her greeting Andrei and giving him a nod. "Oh that was a cold greeting, Ilsa. Good to see you, too. Hope your summer is going well. Mine is utterly miserable," he lightly teased the girl. He wasn't at all upset by the lack of greeting. Whether he was greeted or not didn't bother him. After all, this meeting wasn't exactly about him. It was about the future of the Visvarens.
And then Arne arrived. He smirked when the boy wandered through the doors. He was extremely glad of being able to recruit Arne to join. Alright, so he was pretty much sure Arne wasn't 100% on board, but there was always that chance of getting him to be a full fledged member. "Great to see you, Arne," he greeted the elder boy. It proved that most of the people he figured on coming were here.
"You're probably wondering why you're here. I think it's about time the Visvarens stepped out of the shadows of Durmstrang." He glanced at everyone who had arrived. "We are some of the most influential students in Durmstrang, whether some of the prissy elitests want to think so or not." And it was about time that even they saw that no one was above each other. "With the ideals that they're above others... I think it's about time the group set out to right that idea to prove that Durmstrang is a school where everyone is equal. Where Pureblood, Halfblood, we're all equal." That was the true goal of this meeting. He didn't want to be a leader who ran everything, who decided everything. This was a group to show that everyone was equal. So, although he created the group, he determined that everyone had equal say and equal power. "We're here to brainstorm our first move."
