Dalton had decided he'd take a break from all things Tally, and had ventured way to some sorta party going on. He's not new to events going on during his younger adult years around the area at all, but he hadn't been able to attend any due to studies at VMU.
The entire mocktail party had been a tad bit awkward to him, but he'd sure enough get used to it. He's not a drinker whatsoever despite the fact this had been a no alcohol party. Dalton was looking alive and happy, just not used to attending huge parties of this size. He hadn't met any former or current professors at Tally in what had felt like ages to him, and so connecting with current professors seemed like a reasonable goal even if they are or aren't Tally affiliated ones.
Either way, he heard a voice who'd spoke pretty excitedly maybe? Dalton overheard him encouraging the crowd and all of that around him. Well, he had guessed he could join in for once perhaps. Dalton kept quiet though and just approached the person who had looked to be an adult and possibly someone who maybe a part of Tally. It was somewhat hard to hear anybody speak at all here, but he'd been able to hear the voice.
Anyway, Dalton was gonna get a mocktail soon enough. "Yeaaaah, this party is a bit crazy, but fun." He yelled out to the person, only hearing him speak about the party and other things he didn't really pay mind to as he walked thru the crowd to get to him. "But anyway, my name is Dalton". Dalton is a new professor at Tally at this time for the defense against the dark arts class. He had been excited about it and was so ready to teach kids.
