How do you feel about bears? Because Tatsuya thought that they were unbearable! Terrible jokes aside there was a mission to handle. Currently an organized gang of bears… Tatsuya read that again just to be sure. Yes, a seemingly organized gang of bears was terrorizing the countryside. The jury was still out on whether they could talk and hungered for picnic baskets. This was bizarre to be sure. Bears were normally solitary animals other than when a mother was raising her young. Even if a mother bear had more than 2-3 cubs she wouldn’t be bringing them out hunting with her and if they were big enough to fend for themselves she’d drive them off. There was another, more worrisome, option. That the bears were intelligent creatures, the kind ninja made summoning contracts with, and something had driven them mad.
Definitely one of his more ridiculous missions but Tatsuya would just have to prepare as best he could. His smooth black hair was tied back in a tail that went down past his shoulders and he wore his usual attire a black suit jacket and dress pants over a white button-up shirt with the first few buttons undone, black leather gloves on his hands, the right one bearing the seal to store his puppet, steel-toed shoes, and a patch over his left eye. He was armed, of course, but preferred to keep such things hidden until they were needed.
It seemed that this mission would be a joint one between the two villages, those bears must really get around. Regardless of how aggressive they were, he was confident that two shinobi would be enough to wrangle them, assuming they were normal bears of course. It was possible they were summons but Tatsuya felt like the briefing would have mentioned if the bears had also demonstrated themselves to be magic, and also it wouldn’t be getting handled by Genin.
Tatsuya traveled from Nikkousato to a small roadside inn, the latest victim of the bear attacks, he was supposed to meet his partner there and begin their suppression campaign.
