Kannagi Irezumi had recently been on a mission to collect intel in the most popular gambling hall of Gekkousato. It had gone successfully and as she had reached out to Sojiro, it appeared that he intended to travel to the Moon village and meet with her to discuss it. In order to be sure that they would have a private meeting, Kannagi picked up one of the missions on the mission board, comprehending full well that only fools would follow such powerful shinobi into the jungle on their own to spy on her conversations. Or perhaps so soon after her reconnaissance mission, Kannagi was just a little paranoid of her own private information. The mission she grabbed was going to be simple: kill a beast which had been terrorizing people out in the jungle. The jungle was known for its dangerous wildlife but somehow this reptile had become so large an issue that it deserved a mission all on its own. Being that it was in Gekkousato, she wasn't sure how many missions actually sent shinobi to go kill wild animals given that the thick forests harbored plenty of those, it just seemed simpler to avoid the creatures who were the most frightening. A mission was a mission still, and Kannagi didn't think that with Sojiro by her side they would have any problems confronting a giant lizard.
Her blue eyes looked over the scroll again, noting in her mind each detail. That was when her eyes suddenly widened: a thirty-foot long crocodile that went by the name of Big Mac, or Mac for short. A reptile of that size would weigh between two and three tons, its thick hide would barely be affected by a few cuts of a sword, and the strength in its tail and jaw would make for a deadly combination, even for a ninja as herself. She inhaled deeply and reread the scroll twice more, still unable to believe her eyes. Apparently Big Mac had already killed eleven unlucky people, a pair of them genin who had tried to protect a group of travelers in the jungle expanse. Somehow this ambush predator, despite its great size, was still a prime warrior in its own right. And for it to reach that size, Kannagi could only guess at how old it must have been and how many lives it must have taken along the way. Big Mac would be a serious opponent and that was hoping that she and Sojiro could find him before he found them. His territory seemed to range all along a large rushing river and a bog-like area of the forest. Warnings were also listed for other creatures including man-eating plants, swarms of stinging insects, poisonous spores, serpents and large cats and to her amusement, slippery surfaces. As if encountering a slippery boulder or a muddy ravine would be that much more worrisome when Big Mac was tracking her down in the foliage.
Kannagi had to dress more carefully than usual for this particular mission. She could have chosen something safer like patrolling the borders, but she hadn't wanted to risk Sojiro and her conversations being overheard by anyone. She would have to cross her fingers that he wouldn't be too upset that their basic intel sharing would turn from secretive gathering to the hunt of a lifetime. She wore her usual black shorts but for safety's sake she left the skirt behind and embraced wearing the flak jacket she had purchased straight out of the academy years ago. She strapped on her medical bag, her nin pouch, and her senbon launcher. She wore sturdy boots instead of her wooden sandals and made her way to the outskirts of the village proper and waited near the entry of the thick forest. She took a drink of water from her canteen and then ran a hand through her blue hair; it was going to be a long day.
