Daniel didn't bother with appearances, he was never that type of guy to spend time getting ready, nor was he going to start doing that now. Still in his suit from earlier he ruffled up his black hair and headed out of his office. He was already fashionably late for his shift but he figured the other professors could spare a few extra minutes of their time. Making his way toward the Great Hall he paused just long enough to hear an explosion.
As fast as he feet could take him he went running toward the Great Hall doors, jumping over the banister to save some time as he landed in the middle of a panicked students running away from the hall. There wasn't any time to waste but the panic that build up inside of him caused him to hesitate just enough as he looked around the area. "LILY POTTER!" he yelled toward the crowd not thinking twice about it. Grabbing a frantic student by the arm he said, "Is Lily Potter in there?" the kid only shrugged his shoulders and off he went. It was then that he heard the familiar voice off in the distance. Turning around he saw her red hair fling widely in the crowd ushering students into one of the empty classrooms.
Running toward her relief flushed over him as he realized that she was okay and as safe as she could be. "Everyone follow me," he said as he directed even more students into the safety of the classroom. By the time he got there he saw Lily and Archie leaning over a body. "Lily," he said softly as he came up behind her, then clearing his throat on realizing he was reaching out to her he withdrew his hand and reached into his pocket for his want. "Is he breathing?" he asked.
While he entrusted Wesley, the boy who was laying on the ground bleeding, to Lily he stood close by, ushering as many students into the room as he could. "EVERYONE STAY CALM," he yelled, "ALL GRYFFINDORS IN THE CLASSROOM NOW!" he directed. He may not have been able to get the other students to listen, definetly the Slytherins, but he could at least get his house to safety and hope that the others followed.
With that being done he waved his want in front of the door way, sealing them in. "Protego Maxima. Fianto Duri. Repello Inimicim. Protego Totalum. Salvio Hexia.". With the protection spells in place he hurried back to Lily, one hand on her shoulder as he leaned over the boy himself. "You're doing great Lily," he said in his professor tone of voice to thrwat anyone thinking anything else. As the others went about their buisness for the minute he whispered, "I thought I was going to lose you," and with that he went back to the door seeing if he could save anyone else.
