"Yes," she inclined her head. "When they're in proximity, it's almost certain."

Laurie nodded in affirmation.

“Is it possible for this kind of filter – or something similar – to be constructed externally?”

"That's something we're looking into, but right now I'm inclined to say no. It's nearly impossible to construct a whole, living human mind with its own experiences, personality, worldview and sense of soul."

“Might it be possible for Mahra – who has these experiences of people inside of him?”

"That's essentially the angle I'm looking at," Yarah smiled. "But it seems like it's more immediately effective for him at the moment to have access to an actual, living person. So what will be important is for Mahra to be able to draw on his own internalized perceptions and experiences to build the necessary shielding."

He nodded. “Does it take a certain mind to help with this filter? And do certain other minds invade this filter more strongly than other less stable minds?”

"I'd say so, yes. In blunt terms, Mahra sees everything of a person. Less savory individuals provide less savory input."

"It sucks," Laurie chimed in. "That kind of thing isn't easy to regulate."

He tilted his head. “Can I help? Perhaps Laurie and I can do it together – and there might be times Laurie has to suddenly be away.” What he knew was likely slightly different, but they could adapt.

He glanced over at Mahra, and then nodded. “Okay.
As for… hmm. External shielding. What Mahra perceives is likely still a form of energy; after all, everything is energy. Perhaps I can try to… make something.”

Yarah considered him. "I'd simply caution you to be careful. It's energy, yes, but Mahra may not perceive it the way you do, even if it's intended to be harmless."

He nodded, meeting her gaze. “Of course,” he confirmed sincerely.

Laurie shifted uncomfortably, having listened to them talk without offering any real input for a while. "And, ah, we've talked about some stuff, too," he gestured with one hand.

Yarah smiled. "Yes, we have. If you're comfortable with me sharing the content of those conversations?"

"Believe me, I can't think of anything I'd rather do less," Laurie deadpanned. But, he nodded. "Yeah, go ahead."

"There are some particular issues at play which relate to Veela specifically," Yarah touched the subject lightly, ever the diplomat. "As Laurie has ensured," she gave him a smile, "we are aware of this, and have educated all of our current staff on appropriate policies."

"They had to switch a couple people out," Laurie elaborated. "I noticed it when I was here before Hogwarts. They couldn't handle it."

"We are extremely grateful you brought it to our attention."

"People who can't deal with it are more likely to overwhelm him."

Qingying looked at Laurie. Were they to do with what Laurie had said to him before meeting Mahra?

“Go on,” he invited Yarah, unsure whether she sought to elaborate, or was informing him they had dealt with the issue and the staff were prepared.

Yarah tapped her temple. "That's about it. But it's also an important piece of information. Some people get overwhelmed without any particular direction, they simply find it difficult to assert themselves or act in the moment; that as well seems to be more difficult for him to process."

"He can get stuck in loops. Himself affecting them affecting him. In the past it's even caused people to get hurt. Sensory overload."

He smiled softly at Mahra and then looked back at Yarah. “I have not experienced that with him.” Needless to say, Mahra was in a controlled environment; it may be different in another situation. “I was taught to deal with various factors – of course, it may not be the same, but they should provide support.”

"I'm glad to hear it. As long as Mahra doesn't object, I don't see the harm in trying." Yarah's smile this time was warm rather than reflexive.

"No objection," Mahra said predictably, poking his white-streaked head up from Qin's chest where he'd been snuggled unobtrusively.

Qingying smiled down at him while stroking his hair, and then brought his gaze back up to Yarah.
“Would it be okay to ask for more detail… the information you’ve found so far, and also the method of filter you’re using with Mahra?”

"Of course," Yarah nodded. She went into a bit more detail on the exact methods she used and the extent of her legilimency, and outlined the specifics of Mahra's mental makeup she'd uncovered thus far. All information seemed to point to the fact that Mahra was a hyper-empath without the ability to control the input he received, and additionally that said input wasn't always perceived in the same way that others felt it. With Laurie and Mahra's permission, she allowed Qingying access to the documented files they'd made on Mahra's therapeutic process. There was clearly a lot missing, things that Yarah didn't feel comfortable sharing with someone she wasn't familiar with, the details of Mahra's emotional counseling and things like that, but there was a lot of compiled data on her mental techniques and observations.

He was grateful for them, as this was likely already more than what most would be permitted, and he was thankful for her trust.
He was going to study them!
“Would it be okay if we returned later and asked you to supervise creating a similar filter for Mahra – with me?” He asked, as it was likely better after Mahra saw more of him, and he didn’t want this visit to be incredibly long.

"That would be excellent," Yarah laughed lightly. "As long as that's acceptable to you?"

Mahra beamed. "Yes ma'am."
