The morning had started like every other for Gen as he woke up in his small self made home outside the village and prepared himself for the day. After gathering his supplies and making sure he didn't forget anything he left for the village as per his daily routine. The walk there was arduous at best, it had rained recently and so the ground was soft and difficult in spots. Several of the cacti that dotted the landscape were in full bloom, and even the wild life had emerged and could be found soaking in what ever liquid they may have needed for their desert survival. As he approached the gates he saw a few tearful families load up what possessions they had and clamber aboard their wagons to be off to what he hoped were greener pastures for them. Stopping to talk to the gate guards, he gathered that children had gone missing lately, and after no trail for two weeks, the families had given up. Leaving the village behind in their sadness and grief, taking upon himself to see what this might be about he decided he would go out on a patrol of the living areas in the slum.
Walking with purpose now, he skipped the orphanage for today, he had a mission to find information to help towards finding the lost children even if it took everything he had. Kids were a soft spot for him, and he would see this through to the end. Winding his way through the village proper he finally came to the entrance of the slums and went inside. The place was huge and held a large number of homes to most of the citizens of the Sun village. Because of that there was a multitude of little pop up shops in and around the slums selling food and other comfort items, as well as things required for basic living. Trudging up and down the length of houses after houses in the slums, Gen would search for hours on end as he looked for anything that could possibly be a good start for him to investigate later. His next bet was to go to the bazaar and so he had left to go check out that side of the village in his search.
Upon arrival to the Bazaar, it was already bursting with people buying, selling, and trading for all sorts of goods imaginable. Their were silks, clothes, fabrics, rugs, furniture, weapons, livestock, trainers, tradesman, and a multitude of entertainment options that lined the winding supposed grid of walled in streets that was supposed to be the grand Bazaar. The smells of hundreds of different pop up and permanent restaurants permeated the air with such audacity that you couldn't even smell the menagerie that took up the center of the bazaar, selling exotic animals and summoning contracts alike. The bazaar was a truly wonderful and amazing place, however cheats, swindlers, and thieves were always prevalent given all of the Ryo both in product and physically that was gathered into the area.
He patrolled the Bazaar for hours on ends as he remained ever vigilant, eyeing any and all suspicious trades, and patrons with a discerning eye. When hours had gone by and he had gotten hungrier and hungrier, he also got more and more irritable, especially since nothing was happening! It was a good thing but it also made for a long and boring day in such close quarters with the magnitude of people he had dealt with. Moving through the crowds was not pleasurable for him either given his larger then normal size. As day began to turn to night and the bazaar began closing down for the day, Gen couldn't find any signs that had led him to any clues on picking up a location for starting his search this day. He did have a fairly successful patrol day though! No crime in two sectors of the city!
