Kannagi had heard of some investors looking to make money near the coast. They had begun setting up an outpost near to the Silk Sand Coast not far from the dead salt Lake Usawoti. The outpost, now named Whiteshire, was constructed to harvest the salt from this ancient lake. Some monstrous storm or risen sea of the past had left behind this large brine lake and because nobody lived there, it was easy for a group of merchants to claim. The merchants had set up smaller tent-based encampments outside of the lake and sent workers in to harvest salt by carrying buckets of water from the lake to the main encampment of Whiteshire for evaporation and collection. Usually the salt workers had returned but this assignment, given to Kannagi who made haste to the outpost in the coast, briefed her on their sudden disappearance. The merchants of Whiteshire didn't want to lose their workers (or their business) and asked the village to send shinobi to help find them.
As far as she knew, she was to do the mission alone. Given that she knew the desert well enough to travel alone without fear, Kannagi had no problem with that. Still, riding in to the outpost upon Cirilla's back, the kunoichi had plenty of time to consider the problems in the assignment. At a new forming outpost, workers had gone missing and nobody had found them. The obvious answer was that the workers had abandoned post, but nobody turned up bodies in the desert or the lake and likewise the village had no reports of the civilians returning to Nikkousato. If it was this much of a mystery, she would have liked a second person to join her on the mission for back up. She might have been confident and capable but she was by no means stupid enough to think she could do everything individually. As she had started to learn with Genkumaru, Sojiro and even Hikari, teamwork was important. The workers didn't even seem to look at her as she rode in on her gray mare but by the time she had climbed off Cirilla's saddle and walked her through the small tents towards the largest conical tent of Whiteshire's outpost, a pair of men stepped out to greet her.
"I am Kannagi of the Sun Village. I was sent here to assist in locating some missing salt workers. How can I help?"
