Finding that the stranger seems to focus his interest elsewhere, Henry decides to look for another way to know the place and its people in his seek for a potential plan or allies.
He enters the hotel, decided to go straight to the receptionist and ask for any job that could give him an excuse to be around, when he recognises Harris among other people in the hall. A tremendous effort is needed to not just jump on Harris and bite his neck, and the soothing words from Mikinak are just an inch of being ignored. Finally, though, he recovers, and goes to the desk.
On his way to the receptionist's desk, Henry fakes being stumbled by the gentlemen and tries to sneak in a minor spell Detect Magic on the group. Once face to face with the man in charge of the reception, he goes "Excuse me, sir, but I'm new in town. I be looking for anything I can do for you in exchange of a few cash. I'm strong and tough, and can carry anything around for you if you please, or can do any other task. Try me for free for a few days, and you'll see yourself." Meanwhile, though, he has an ear and an eye set on the conversation between Harris and the other strangers.
The lean blonde, frock-coated gentleman who, by both his mien and slightly-forbidding demeanor, evidently has charge of the reception desk regards Bringer-of-Hope with a intentional expression, equal parts curiosity and suspicion,
"Well, stranger, you're in luck. I'm currently a bit short staffed. One of the bellhops named Miles disappeared the other day, and a couple of the others evidently got spooked as a result, and have yet to return to work. If you ask me, young Miles just skipped town and graciously decided not to inform me of that fact -- an odd one that. In any event, we have an important share-holders meeting coming up, and I'm sure my remaining waitstaff could use an extra pair of hands getting our guests' luggage to their rooms. Go check in with the valet station at the front of the lobby and find Charles. He'll get you set up."
