Kannagi Irezumi knew just where the two of them were heading. She had never met this shinobi that she was partnered with today, but she waited on the outskirts of the village ready for long distance travel with the stranger. The mission they were setting out for had attracted many bandits, thieves, jewel and glory hunters who were out for this mysterious powerful blade. Kannagi had no such desires or interests. An ancient ruins was interesting enough to visit and explore thus she was not opposed to being assigned this mission. If the village thought locating the ancient tomb in a massive ruins was going to help the village, then she would take part in full. It didn't matter that this whole trip could be a complete waste and the tomb might not even exist. Or worse, if it did exist but had been overrun by so many plants it would take years for an excavation to unearth it. Kannagi thought this might be a job best suited for a jounin team, maybe with a byakugan to look for and see living things or perhaps chakra weapons or relics if they even existed.
She sat leisurely in a chair made of paper, her own creation, with a delicate parasol above her to block out the sun from her vision. This way she would see anyone heading her way easily. Kannagi wore a long mauve skirt tied up in the front to reveal black shorts beneath. Her top was sleeveless and dark grey in color causing her bright blue hair and eyes to stand out more than usual. Her legs crossed and she wiggled her toes until her sandals fell off and she was in a more relaxed and comfortable state. This was an exploratory mission; there was no hard set goal, no cost of failure. It was merely a safe travel there and back that the kunoichi wished for. When her partner did finally appear, she would of course slide her feet back into her traveling sandals and deactivate her paper chair and umbrella with a single hand sign.
"If you're ready to go, so am I. My name is Kannagi and you're lucky to travel with me," She explained with the tone of a schoolteacher, gentle but confident, "I have traveled quite a bit so the desert should be no danger to us." After a brief conversation, which may or may not have continued along their journey, Kannagi and her partner would make it to the Barrens and its ruins.
