Normally, an Enchanter deep in his work would be wearing a series of protective gear, most notably a helmet and leather raiment. Dorian however, was a Vampire, and therefore had no such need. Any injury he received as a result of his work would not last long and some even whispered that he enjoyed it. Well, they weren't entirely right but they also weren't wrong. Sparks flew as he finished the silver setting around a crystal clear pendant. He was just holding it up to the natural light flooding through the window when the knock sounded.
Setting the pendant down with the others he'd finished, he checked that any wounds on his hands were clean before opening the door and giving Cordelia one of his signature boyish grins. "I thought I smelled beautiful." He purred, reaching out to take her hand and press a kiss to her knuckles before gently pulling her into the lab. "Thank you for agreeing to assist me, I have many talents but Hydromancy is not one of them." He added, leading her over to the table laid out with pendants and rings.
Dorian would remain close to her, light touches on her hand, her elbow, along the curve of her back. It was never forceful, or possessive. No, the touching was more for Dorian then for Cordelia, as he craved the touch and closeness of others. It was his greatest weakness, and even he would freely admit it.
His lab would be mostly tables and workbenches, various machines and instruments for crafting set atop them. The majority of his work was jewelry but he was perfectly capable of handling the larger enchantments as well, like the ones that went into the airships. "I have been working on a set of enchantments that would allow a water based creature to stray from their homes without drying out, I based it on the enchantments for my sun rings, but I cannot give the final spark of power." He would pull up a chair for Cordelia next to the table so she would be more comfortable, before lowering a magnifying glass so she could more easily see.
"Each of these gems has been inscribed with runes, hard to see unless you know what you're looking for." He explained, picking up one of the more gaudy rings and holding it under the magnifying glass so she might be able to see the inscription he was referring to. "All I require from you is your magic to charge the runes and finish the inscription. And then we will need to test one." He finished, setting the ring into her hand, his fingertips lingering on her palm for just a moment too long before he drew his touch away.
