The sun had poured down on the scorched lands around Nikkousato like a raging inferno, raising the ambient temperature to a very uncomfortable sweltering point. An avian cacophony of chirps and calls echoed throughout the valley that laid beside Nikkousato, the ever rushing northern river adding to the overall ambiance of Gen's trek back to his home for supplies to undertake this journey. Along the northern running rivers bank a small beach had formed and It was here that his house was built. It possessed an atypical clay and wood construction lending to a very unique outward appearance as it was octagonal in shape with a steeped roof lending to a more walled gazebo like appearance then a normal sun village home. Its walls were painted a deep cerulean blue with red accents and shale colored shingles.
A large rosewood door framed the only entrance into the home, its iron accents beautiful and functional. Two windows, one on the first level, and the other near the top of the steeple somewhere on the second levels loft. Its oriental make gave credence to a temple like feel when observing it. Inside was a very standard home design, smoothed stone flooring, an open fire pit cooking station laid dead center in the room, with a sink and cabinet system on the wall with the window, sitting pillows stacked neatly in one of the far corners, and a wooden man post laid under the loft used for training. At the rear of the home was a ladder that led up to the loft levels sleeping area, its design comfortable but very simplistic or rustic like the rest of the home.
Upon entering his home, Gen had filled up on his water canteen and travel rations knowing that the trip was a relatively simple one, and by the time he left his home it was already sunset. The late night breeze flitted over the scorched lands in a calming low whistle as cacti and what flora remained shivering in the wind. The sun was setting with little to no clouds allowing a beautiful night blue sky to emerge high above Gen's head as he maneuvered his way through the desert into the Kataki roads. Choosing to take the Kataki road, he figured it would be his safest and fastest option to the moon village. As he made his way on the well traveled merchant road, he would be seen eating dried meat of unknown origin, its protein being important to his well defined and muscular frame. He wore his standard clothing today and like most days his flak jacket and form fitted white dress shirt were both undone, with his sleeves rolled up.
