It was early in the afternoon in the desert village of Nikkousato. The bustling village was alive with the sound of life and its vibrant culture, citizens moving about and carrying out their daily routines with purpose and vigor. Genkumaru was among them, as he delivered fresh produce to the Orphanage he grew up in, a place he tried to visit and assist as often as possible. As it transitioned into the early afternoon Gen quickly rushed to the gates, knowing that he had taken up an escort mission to Gekkousato today and needed to be present as to make a good impression. He was told that his partner today in helping the Merchant that had hired him was a Moon Shinobi, and this was a part of their outreach mission to foster stronger bonds.
Arriving in time to see that the caravan was finished loading up and people were beginning to settle into their carriages, Genkumaru went in search of the lead cart to present himself to the Merchant who had hired him. When he arrived there however he was greeted by a small and feeble looking older man, maybe five feet or so in height. The man was seated in the drivers position of his wagon and looked only slightly down wards into Genkumaru's eyes as he spoke to him in a raspy high pitched elderly voice, "Eh? You must be one of those ninjas I asked for to help me out! Can't be to careful as of late can ye' boy? Hop on in the back there and take a seat. Its a long journey, hopefully we have no complications... but if we do that's what your here for! Bwahahaha!", the goofy old man was endearing to Gen and so he just shook his head as he headed to the back of the cart and jumped in, replying to the old man with a lighthearted voice, "Roger!".
As he laid in the comfortable seating area in the back of the hard topped wagon he wondered who his companion would be on this journey. What were Moon Shinobi like anyways? Were they honorable warriors and duty driven like those of the sun? Or were they amoral and not worthy of respect? This was a truly interesting topic to Gen and he hoped to be able to pick his new comrades brain on the matter. He had been to the Moon village however he hadn't really interacted with its people when he did, so he was excited for this moment!
