Gil hadn't expected to be invited to the casino his sister liked to frequent for a job. He'd set up a website for his freelance work, thinking he needed at least some revenue with the damn search taking longer than he expected. He needed income, and while he did enjoy working at the bar he did need other sources of income if he was going to stay in the city while he searched for Lisette.

He needed a place to stay, too, but that would come later.

But it was nice to have been invited, and he made a note to himself to ask about Lisette when he finished with the job, or before he started.

He had a bad feeling about the time it was taking.

Walking into Tyche, he asked to speak to someone about the job he'd been invited to do, and then waited for her to be informed.

The casino is usually open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, but today happens to be maintenance day. That means machines are being tuned, carpets are being cleaned, and certain pieces of furniture are being brought out to the back to be burnt to ashes. You'd think this a severe over-reaction, but having seen some of the pertinent security footage, Evelyn can assure you that is it very necessary.

The site is vacant enough- only a few musclemen about moving things and such- that Evelyn can greet the photographer herself. "Hello, Lancelot Gilbert?" She approaches with a polite smile on her face. Lancelot. Fancy name for a photographer, not that Evelyn's got a personality to really live up to an 'Evelyn'. Maybe a 'Fran', or "Delores'. But, Evelyn she had been named, so Evelyn it is. "I'm Evelyn Dunn, the Tyche Casino manager." A hand is offered. "You came for the photography job, correct?"

Gil looked up when he heard the atrocity that was his full name spoken aloud. The woman was pretty enough, if you were into women. When the hand was offered, he inclined his head, taking it and shaking it. Evelyn suited her, he thought to himself. The dark hair and eyes seemed... fitting.

"Call me Gil, please. I hear Lancelot and I think I'm in trouble. I keep expecting to see my aunt come around the corner." He flashed a charming grin, and then he said, "But yeah, that's me. And while I'm here... Though, actually, while I'm here, I was wondering... Have you seen this woman, by chance? She would come here with her boyfriends a lot, she told me, and she's... well. She's missing. I'm trying to figure out the last time anyone saw her."

He fished the picture out of his wallet. The woman in the picture was pretty, with dark eyes and curled hair, and beauty marks across her face. She was very obviously related to Gil. "I get you're a busy woman, and you probably don't remember every face that enters the building."

Gil- thank God he's okay with a shortened version, calling him 'Lancelot' would had been too embarrassing- looks much younger up close than Evelyn had thought. The photographer sounds like he would be around Evelyn's age, but his face still has a softness to it. Maybe her perception is a bit skewed seeing as her boss has a jawline probably capable of cutting steel. Wow, has she already derailed her train of though thinking about Gabriel De La Croix's jawline? There must be something wrong with her today.

Like Gabriel, Gil seems to know how to turn on the charm, but the businesswoman keeps a neutral expression on her face even as the photographer starts to pull out a photo. Mmm, so he's the kind with ulterior motives. Not the first, and likely not the last person to come here wanting more than a paycheck for an honest day's work.

His actual request seems harmless- just someone looking for a relative of theirs, apparently, but like every time this happens, Evelyn has to shake her head. "I'm afraid many of our patrons greatly value their privacy. Even if I had seen her, I wouldn't be able to tell you." The cameras would certainly be able to, footage recorded and stored constantly under Evelyn's watchful eye- but that's not something Gilbert can or should concern himself with. "Now, you came here to do a job, yes? I should show you the points of interest we need you to photograph." And with that, the manager turns and walks deeper into the casino itself, her path followed by the gaze of one of the cameras affixed to the ceiling above.

When the woman mentioned privacy, Gil's expression dropped. He exhaled and ran a hand through his hair, before he tucked the picture away. He accepted the chastisement for what it was, and inclined his head. "Sorry about that, you're right. I'm here to take pictures. Please, lead the way."

Eyes flicking up, he took note of the cameras, and his eyes narrowed a hair. Maybe he could... but if he got caught, he'd be no use to his sister regardless. "This is a beautiful casino. I can definitely see some really nice pictures being taken here. What sort of photos are you looking for?"

Another smile, just as tight. It's not as if she doesn't feel for him, it's just that this job won't allow her to. It's not like being a cashier where giving a little extra for free will get you fired at worst; Gabriel De La Croix has already proven he won't fuck around dealing with traitors, and Evelyn isn't about to test what the actual limits for 'traitorous activity' are.

"If you would follow me," she offers, leading a winding path through the casino that goes past the bar, the slot machines, and other parts of the casino. "We're preparing to renovate our website, and update some photos. Closeups of certain machines, from broader shots of the bar and other rooms, and outside shot of the whole building, and an entrance shot of what you see when you walk in. I have the list here-" The manager waves down a nearby employee, one of the security detail, who hands her the paper as she murmurs her thanks. "Here. It'll tell you the shots we need, and the dimensions you need them in. If there's something that catches your eye, feel free to take some extra shots and we'll pay you for them as well, if we decide to use them."

Gil let himself slip into a more professional mindset, his eyes moving critically over the room. He nodded his head, taking the paper and looking over it. He hummed, and he cocked his head to the side, glancing up. "I take it I am being paid for a picture by picture basis, rather than a bulk order?" He looked curious, even as he mentally tallied up the shots he'd need. If they were doing picture by picture, he'd have to be careful of his shots--he couldn't afford to waste any. It was why he charged more for that service.

"Yes, that's right," the manager nods, as she too settles into that familiar, professional feel that her job often pushes her into. "We've opened up several new restaurants- those, you should concentrate on, I think- and they all need photos." As if on cue, Evelyn leads Gil out of the gambling halls, the slot machines and winding paths giving way to a hall of eateries and restaurants alike. Usually, this place would be ridiculously loud- chefs, waiters, customers- but today the place is mostly deserted, save for a few handymen working behind a large white tarp. "That one is being renovated. I know it might be hard, but try to keep the construction activity out of the pictures when you're photographing the adjacent restaurants."

"As for the rest of the place, we'd like a few establishing shots of stores and the arena. Mostly though, the gambling halls and food places should take priority. Any questions?"

Gil was attentive, looking around and considering the best angles he would need. "I can work around the construction easily enough." He muttered, fingers brushing over his camera case thoughtfully. Maybe if he angled it just right... He nodded at the words, and then he shook his head. "No, I think that's about it. Unless there's anything else you think I might need to know? Any areas I need to make sure to stay out of? I wouldn't want to step on any toes."

Evelyn cocks her head to the side, thinking about what are supposedly the off limits area of the casino. "If you see a door with a gold circle on it, that's my office," she eventually tells him. "Don't go in there. Steer clear of any construction sites, and if one of the guards don't allow you access anywhere, just work around those areas." Her office in particular has all sorts of sensitive information in it, not to mention her laptop, and she's not about to let anyone else touch her baby.

Gil nodded his head in understanding, and said "Avoid the doors with the gold circles on them, and sty away from construction sites. Got it. I'll listen to the guards and steer clear. Alright, I think I have everything I need. I'll get to work, then." He smiled easily at her, and went to work.
