    Mission Info:
    Name: Assassination
    Rank: A-Rank
    Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village, Missing Ninja
    Type: Group Mission
    Reward:  65 EXP, 40 Ryo
    Location: Opposite village you are aligned too.
    Details: This assassination mission is all about taking away an important figure from the other village in a clandestine manner with little to no mistakes being acceptable. These targets can range from shinobi and valued merchants to politicians. The mission is clear: find and take out the target with as few consequences as possible and leave no trace of your involvement.
    Requirements: Each person must make at least six posts, totaling to 2400 WC.

    The village alliance had been quickly ramping up lately with the recent reveal of the Odotai, choosing to cooperate more on targeting rogue ninja that had gone by without reprisal for too long. This was out of both survival and a need to curb whatever was brewing in the world as much as they possibly could. Several new targets had been pointed out as information became more and more accessible to the alliance council. Several of these missing-nin were being evaluated for risk factors including, combat prowess, knowledge base, and importance. Over the next few months dozens of these targets would be hunted down and either captured or eliminated if it proved too difficult to capture them.

    This was to be a grand exercise carried out by higher rank ninja over the next few months from both villages. One such target was a Hyuuga Zhurong, a powerful practitioner of the Gentle Fist and the Guandao and former clan battlemaster of the Hyuuga. After a disagreement with his father, Hyuuga Hiroiji about the status of the clan he left the village nearly twenty years ago and has been seen in an old temple just north of the Village of Debon. Many a martial artists has claimed to have been trained by him and learned the way of the warrior under his watchful eye. The reason the village has targeted him is that several people have been murdered near the village lately, and their autopsies have shown that long and deep lacerations were found in their bodies as well as destruction to several of their Tenketsu points.

    These findings have led them to believe that Zhurong must be at fault as he is capable of the destruction that was wrought on the victims, and all of them have been former students or teachers at the other local schools around Debon. His school having fallen into a rut for getting new students being used as his modus operandi for why he is being targeted now. Genkumaru Iwamura and Ami Hyuuga have been assigned as the representatives of the alliance to seek out Zhurong and capture or eliminate him.

    He had traversed quite a ways from Nikkousato to get to Debon and begin the task he had been given from the higher ups. It was a painfully on the nose job of eliminating or capturing a man that almost every martial artist worth his eight knew of. Zhurong was a legendary warrior and had been a household name several years back, and so it was terrifying to think that he could be the one behind the grizzly murders happening around Debon. I mean how could someone so honorable and respected really be capable of such malice? It had to be wrong right? Just a coincidence? It's all Gen could think to himself as he walked into the village and waited at the gates for his partner from Nikkousato to arrive.

    He was adorned this day with a white set of Hakama and Kimono and a red and gold accented haiori that had flame motifs on it. He wore ninja sandals this time as to bind the ends of his pajama together and give him better control over taijutsu based movements. Lastly his crimson hair was in a topknot amd well kept. His forehead protector being used as an obi for him. He would wait patiently for Ami to arrive as he had quite a few words for her, as their last meeting did not end as well as it could have for her. She had to understand why he had done it though.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Ami walked cautiously from the Gekkousato village gates, a mission scroll in hand. Her heart was heavy, her mind in a state of slight confusion as she set off to Debon, a region of the unknown for her. She was just assigned a mission that was both exciting but painful at the same time. It was exciting because she was tasked with her first assassination or elimination mission but the target was someone from her clan. As a Hyuuga she had heard of Zhurong's name since she was a young child. having heard her elders mention him more than once. She was always under the impression that he was some kind of mythical being, only knowing that he was a powerful practitioner of the clan fighting style. Everything else was unknown to her and for some reason it...scared her.

    Her hand tightened around the scroll as she walked, trying to come to terms with her mind. She knew that he had gone into hiding after a disagreement with the head of the clan some twenty years ago. The thought of her going after a man of her clan of that level unsettled her. But this was going to be her chance to prove to the world, prove to the rest of her clan that she wasn't just some kind of beautiful looking ornament used for display, that she was a fighter and a skilled shinobi. Ami had wanted to prove herself, prove her worth ever since she had begun training to be a shinobi, having the weight of the elders and her clan on her shoulders for enough years. It was high time people saw, people recognized her abilities.

    It would take her more than a few hours to find Debon, a northern region she had never really been to. She was expected to meet her partner here and wondered who would be assigned to the mission with her. All she knew was that it wasn't a moon shinobi as they would have set out to travel together to Debon if that were the case. In her mind she was going through the list of people she had worked with before from Sun village. Anyone but Sojiro...she found herself thinking subconsciously. Although she wanted to see him she also feared to, recalling the details of their previous mission together. The sign of crimson hair in the distance would relieve her though, as she recognized only one individual with that feature....Gekumaru. With him she felt safe at least. Walking up to him, he would see that not much of her attire had been altered since their last mission together with the exception of her flowing green hair being tied back with a red ribbon.

    "Gen!" she called out to him as she neared.

    As he sat there and reflected on what was to become of them this day and what it was that they were needed to do, he thought long and hard about the possibility of fighting Zhurong. He was a mythical man and would be a wonderful challenge. For some reason that only made the blood boil more for Gen as he waited his mind focusing and sharpening about how he would deal with the man and his weapon the legendary Green Dragon Crescent Blade. He was not just a feared practitioner of Taijutsu but also Bukijutsu which truly made him a master of war. Whilst his brain drummed over the possibilities of what it would be to fight such a legendary man he would hear his name be shouted by a familiar voice. Turning to face her he would wave her over and bow when she was close enough speaking with a kind and stoic tone, "Hyuuga Ami, it is good to see you. I... Apologize for before. I was sent on a mission to route out that fighting ring and I had to go all out on you to maintain my cover... I am sincerely apologetic for what I had done to you.", he would bow once more in apology before he began walking out of the village and towards the outskirts where several martial schools had built their temples along the cliffs.

    Walking off towards the farthest school from the others it was down the river from them and would appear like a shadow in the distance. Thinking of Zhurong again he would speak to Ami, "
    Hey Ami, what do you know about Zhurong? He is a Hyuuga and the son of the clan head right? Does he have any siblings that were like him? I know that Hiroiji is a monster as well so its no wonder that Zhurong is so strong...", his voice would become excited as he spoke of their martial might to her. Clearly he was a martial artist and the thought of fighting one of the greatest martial artists of the last hundred years was getting his blood boiling.

    He would exhale for a brief moment before speaking out loud in general as they traversed along the river towards the temple grounds, Debon getting farther away from them now.

    Fights with no fear or any doubt
    Heads into battle

    Ami waved off his apology, barely remembering the fight that they had had. To be honest, she had not expected to win and was more than content having lost to him. She had gone into the fight without any weapons, relying on her subpar skills in hand-to-hand combat. And because of that she had gladly accepted defeat, especially under the hands of Gen. She smiled at him and shook her head, indicating that she didn't hold a grudge against him for going all out. A fight was a fight, regardless of the connection or relationship between the people involved. "I wasn't bothered by it. You did what you had to do." her smile wouldn't falter as she said this.

    The girl would now find herself walking alongside the red haired man, heading away from Debon. She thought about his question, catching his excitement that was perhaps lost on her. Ami was not a fighter, and the thought of facing someone from her own clan, regardless of how much of a legend the person might be, was a little hard for her to handle. She knew what she had to do, and so fighting him in and of itself wasn't the issue. But a part of her felt embarrassed, humiliated, that someone from her clan was sought after like that. If she could remove herself from any emotion then perhaps she could feel the excitement that Gen felt...but sadly she couldn't, not for Zhurong. "I know very little about him," she would reply truthfully. Her voice was a whisper, as she had never once thought about asking her clan elders about the man.

    The mention of Hiroji's name struck a nerve inside her. Her own grandfather being addressed like that or even mentioned often made her tense. Ami tried to brush off the feeling, instead focusing on what Gen had to say about the man. She had always been afraid of her grandfather of sorts, feeling that she was always not good enough in his eyes regardless of what she did. She knew that he was a tyrant, a monster, like Gen said, and because of that, could only imagine what Zhurong was like. In her head she was also wondering if her kekkei gekkai would really be of use if they were to clash, knowing that Zhurong probably had the upper hand regardless. But she kept those thoughts to herself, falling silent as they continued down the path.

    He listened on to her as they walked closer and closer towards their destination the deceptively hidden temple grounds coming in to view as they followed the bend of the river. It had high stone walls and three pagoda tiered buildings inside it, or at least that could be viewed from the level they were at. It seemed like the school was smaller then the others in the area and by extension less populated. This was concerning to him as how could the Zhurong, Dragon of the East, be complacent with such a plain looking temple grounds? However all fear was washed away as they came to the front gate, dark wood set against the grey stone walls that encircle the grounds. The guards would open the doors for them and what laid inside was truly magnificent. It seemed that the temple had been built in to a hill side and as such because of the high walls only three buildings were in sight, where in reality that's because they were just the tallest. The compound plunged downwards and into the mountain side as rows and rows of buildings were contained inside, hidden from the world outside. It was like a small village in it of itself!

    Stone stairs shot down steeply and at right angles every twenty steps until it took them below to ground level. Scores of training grounds and martial artists were still present here and it seemed totally counter to the rumors that had been floating of the decline of Zhurong's school. There were easily at least three hundred people or so all living and training here, how could that be in decline? Continuing through the cleverly constructed grounds they would begin to go under the earthen canopy of the hill top as torch light began to lit up the grounds. Continuing all the way to the back it opened up into a larger stone amphitheater with what seemed like a gigantic hot spring, that must have served as the bathing grounds for the entire compound. Clearly if anyone had scoffed at Zhurong's decision to build his school here, they did not know of its real secret, as this was a genius thing to have when you had tired and sore martial artists. This was proving to be more and more interesting i-of an experience as each moment went by, speaking to Ami with wonder in his voice, "
    Ami... This place is wonderful! I could live and die here...", and with that last statement a boisterous and deep laugh would echo out through the amphitheater as a large man in shades of green and traditional armor approached them, his eyes lilac like that of the Hyuuga. He himself must have been in his fifties maybe?

    Hyuuga Zhurong:
    The Crime of Existing... (Group Mission) Zhuron10
    Name: Hyuuga Zhurong
    Gender: Male
    Village: Debon (Formerly Gekkousato)
    Rank: S-Rank
    Title: Dragon of the East


    He had spent his day toying over the rumors that he was a murderer and the dishonorable actions that had sprout forth from there. Between teaching, praying, meditating, taking missions, and trying to be a father where would he have time to go out and challenge mere students, let alone butcher them? It was baseless and horribly damaging to his honor and good name. Clearly someone must have been setting him up to take the blame for crimes he did not commit. He hadn't even touched his weapon in years, only training Guandao which were blunted or wooden! It was annoying and driving him to a sour mood, "I should go for a soak... Ease my mind.", there were no other Hyuuga at his school either and his son didn't even possess the byakugan! The anger would boil in him as he tried to exercise the breathing techniques his doctor told him too.

    Climbing the steps down from the main temple, he made his way towards the amphitheater and hot springs, only to be waylaid by the sight of two new people, a large man with crimson hair that was maybe even his own equal in size and height, and a shorter woman who was petite yet muscular and had green hair. They were interesting and new, something he hadn't had in a few months. Straightening his clothing and readying himself he approached them only to hear the wonder in the man's voice at this place of his that the other masters had scoffed at. Letting out a boisterous laugh
    his frustration from before was washed away by the moment. Speaking with a deep and firm voice that had kindness underpinning it, "
    Many a warrior have said that before upon seeing the actual temple! Good eyes boy. I am Hyuuga Zhurong, the master of this school, what brings you here?", he would perform the warriors bow towards them as he sized them up further.

    Hearing the voice of the Dragon was an awe inspiring experience for him and snapped him towards reality as he quickly returned the warrior's pose and spoke to the man before him, "Hyuuga Zhurong, I am Iwamura Genkumaru of Nikkousato.", he would let Ami introduce herself first before he spoke again, and or if she would tell him what they were there for. Sizing up Zhurong himself he couldn't believe that there was a man as large as him that age and still so physically imposing. Zhurong was definitely one of the last great masters and simply being in his presence was invigorating if not also stifling.

    The temple and perhaps what was behind the barren and plain walls of it were indeed magnificent. Zhurong had built quite a place for himself, almost as grand as that of a village, or a smaller version of it. Ami could tell that he had put in a lot of effort into making the place what it was today. As the duo made their way below the ground floor, she would not be surprised to see the massive training grounds. Her eyes scanned the area, a familiar sensation washing over her. This place reminded her strangely of the Hyuuga compounds, more specifically, the compound training grounds. She guessed that all training grounds looked precisely the same but perhaps the fact that Zhurong was a Hyuugan was enough for her to...relate in some way. Ami would give a small smile at Gen's remark of wanting to live here, thinking that perhaps she had found herself a fanboy of the Hyuugan. She immediately dismissed that thought, realizing how rude she was to make such an assumption. Gen was only a martial arts enthusiast, she thought to herself firmly.

    As they made their way beyond the grounds, they would come to a hot springs area of sorts. Ah...she should have known that Zhurong would build a hot spring for himself, as almost every Hyuuga member enjoyed the warm and relaxing waters after training. Her smiled would widen a little as she recalled her own home and the many times she had used her clan hot springs. Again she would have to stop herself from getting carried away, shaking her head a little subconsciously to stay focused. She was still a little lost in thought when she heard a voice, a deep voice that snapped her out of her daydreams. Her lavender white eyes would rest on the man himself, which was immediately apparent from his eyes. He was wearing some kind of traditional armor and the air he gave off was definitely as he himself described, a master of a school. She would listen to the short greetings of the two men, smiling again to herself at Gen's reactions to the older man.

    "Hyuuga...Ami." was all she had to offer. It felt so strange to say her name. She wouldn't expect Zhurong to know of her or recognize her as a Hyuugan. She had defied her clan elders years ago by changing her hair colour to the now defiant lime green, and to him she probably looked like some kind of rebel wannabe. Her eyes would lock into his though, a certain defiance that could only be understood when people of the same clan met. The legend that she had heard so little about and yet slightly fascinated her since she was a child was standing before her. Just by looking at him she couldn't begin to imagine that he was a relentless murderer. Perhaps looks were deceiving. After a moment's thought, she would continue her sentence. "We were sent here to ask about the...the murders. There have been rumors." She kept her words short and concise, waiting to see how he would respond.

    Gen watched onward's as Ami shifted in her place and then finally spoke to the man before them, Curiously she paused after saying her last name would was confusing to Gen, but maybe that was because he still had plenty to learn about her, as he knew next to nothing about her personally only having had a few interactions and conversations previously. Inhaling deeply for a minute he spoke causally when she started to talk about the reason they were here to the target, "Sifu Zhurong, we are here because you are the primary suspect in these murders, and the alliance has tasked us with bringing you in. Please tell me it wasn't you...", he would close his eyes for a moment after he finished speaking before opening them and exposing a fire deep inside them that belayed his way of speaking as he was still vocally kind and deep with his words. Changing his stance to one more meant for reacting in combat, he still had raised his hands, even though he changed his foot position.

    Hyuuga Zhurong:
    The Crime of Existing... (Group Mission) Zhuron10
    Name: Hyuuga Zhurong
    Gender: Male
    Village: Debon (Formerly Gekkousato)

    He listened to both of them intently, giving Ami a curious look when she announced she was a Hyuuga, confused on how his father would ever let a Hyuuga meet with him as Zhurong was considered a heretic by his father for believing they should lead and not the Kaguya. After listening to them he sighed heavily and spoke with a heavy heart evident with the tone of his voice as clearly this wasn't the first time someone had spoke to him about it,"Look, why don't you come inside the temple. I have something to show you that should clear my name if that even matters to you two.", He would begin walking towards the temple assuming that Ami and Gen were following him as he would ascend the center temples steps and enter into the building, climbing the stairs several floors before speaking while they climbed,"I don't even encourage my students to use their talents for anything other then competition, they know that if they use it as ninja, or to war as a mercenary then I will never let them back. I am tired of war and killing... Ami you said you are a Hyuuga who is your father or family line? Purely out of curiosity...", if they followed him all the way he was heading towards a higher floor it seemed.


    Shooting a look to Ami at Zhurong's response he would seem confused before he followed behind Zhurong and listen to him when he started speaking after they had reached, entered, and ascended some of the internal staircases already. The temple and grounds were so traditional and of the older style that it brought up intense feelings of majestic beauty in him. Listening to him talk about being done with war and killing he would flash Ami another look of confusion, it had seemed more and more that the man they were led to believe was the target might in fact not be, or so it was seeming at least.

    Ami listened to what Gen had said, a little bit intrigued at his choice of words. She had expected him to be somewhat ruthless if not crude towards someone who he was supposed to kill. But then again, judging from the way he clearly almost idolized the place they were in, she shouldn't have been too surprised. Gen's plea of hoping that the person responsible for the murders was not Zhurong made her raise her eyebrow slightly. Perhaps she was just not as connected with the Hyuuga, even though they were from the same clan. She would continue to glance between the two men, as she heard Zhurong ask them to go with him into the temple. Her fingers tightened around the hilt of her katana, her guard obviously heightening as they were now entering his territory. Ami was always a little too careful, it seemed. The girl would walk behind Gen a little as they made their way inside the temple.

    "...Ami you said you are a Hyuuga who is your father or family line? Purely out of curiosity..."
    She was a little taken aback by his question, not only because he was addressing her specifically but also because he cared about the branch she came from. Not many people did, or at least they never asked her outright. After a moment's silence she would reply, her voice a small whisper. She didn't enjoy talking about her clan nor about her father. "Hyuga Gunji, I am from the main branch." she would state simply. Just the name of her father made her tremble slightly. She had lived under his shadows, and the shadows of her elders for such a long time, the relationship between father and daughter strained beyond what met the eye on the surface. Ami had been an obedient girl, loyal to her clan and village, but since becoming a shinobi she had sort of strayed, with the first stray in her hair colour choice. Although seemingly harmless, the Hyuuga clan prided themselves on their appearance and her deviation was something that to this day her father couldn't quite wrap his head around.

    The main and sub branches of the Hyuuga lived quite peacefully. There was little distinction between them, other than the obvious fact that those of the lower sub branches didn't live in the compounds. But other than that every member was allowed to learn the Gentle Fist style techniques. And what was even more lenient was the fact that some members didn't even possess the Byakugan! It was perhaps this deviation that was much more severe than that of her change in hair colour that allowed the elders of her clan to turn a blind eye. Still she was not proud of her judgments and choices, realizing that none of the other clan members had gone through such...such rebellion stages in their lives. Even as she looked at Zhurong now, he still had the distinct facial features of a regular Hyuuga.

    As he led them skyward and they continued to traverse his home he listened to the words that Ami let slip from her mouth. Hyuuga Gunji which sent a pulse through his body at the very mention of his brothers name. Stopping for a moment he would turn and face her briefly, a completely different look in his eyes and a change to his demeanor that seemed to reflect sadness or remorse ,"Gunji... You are my younger brother's daughter then... Ami did you know that before being sent here? You weren't even thought of yet before I left. My father and yours would have known about our connection well before ever letting you come on this mission...", An air of defeat would linger on him as he closed his eyes and breathed deeply before turning back around and opening a door hidden in the wall, revealing what looked like a private dojo and meeting space. A statue to the divine dharma was at the opposite side of the room, with heavily dragon emblazoned armor on the left side, and a giant Guandao on the right. Both were bound by chains with undisturbed sealing tags over the locks - a thick layer of dust gathered on the tags.

    "
    Please make yourself comfortable, as you can see if you just look I am no longer a man of war. These have been sealed since my wife died about nine years back. I couldn't and won't use these again unless I absolutely have too, and I pray that day never comes. I don't know who has been doing these murders but I am being framed for crimes I haven't and will never commit.", if they followed him inside and simply observed his armaments then they would see he was earnest in his words and what he had meant. He was not the criminal they had been sent and led to believe he was.

    Listening in on the conversation between Ami and Zhurong he was captivated by whatever was going on between them, as Zhurong announced he was her uncle if Gen did his math right. How lucky she was to be have  a family still, let alone be related to not one but three living legends! Her father was also once known as a great warrior alongside Zhurong and by that extension Hiroiji as well, their grandfather having been known as a great warrior in his day as well. However, it seemed that perhaps the Hyuuga's were not as prestigious as he once thought given the tone and words that both Ami and Zhurong were using in reference to their clan and family matters.

    Tuning them out for a moment as to not listen in to things he should not know or be privy too, he would follow along and into the private sanctum of Zhurong, immediately looking into and at everything that was on display. Several cases lined the left and right side of the walls, holding armor, unique headbands, and broken weapons from his conquests, as well as several medals and trophy's from all sorts of martial arts tournaments and arenas throughout the years. Finally the right side led all the way to his legendary weapon the Green Dragon Crescent Blade, which emanated power just being near it, while the left side led to the Dragon Armor that he had worn in his previously life it seemed. He was awe struck now. By the words and insistence of Zhurong he looked over the armor and blade, both covered in dust as well as the seal tag and chains on them, they hadn't been used, let alone cleaned or moved in years it seemed. He really had abandoned his armaments to lead a different life to an extent. Turning to look at Zhurong he spoke with a heavy tone, "
    If it wasn't you then who did such heinous acts, and why did they seemingly frame you? I don't understand what the other masters would gain from this, or even an enemy of yours. You have sequestered yourself into exile basically, and you have three times less students then the other large school here....", his voice would trail as he spoke and looked off into the distance through a window, the mountain and its schools in full view as movement was abundant and seemed ant like from this view.

    "Gunji... You are my younger brother's daughter then... Ami did you know that before being sent here? You weren't even thought of yet before I left"

    The Hyuuga would look at Zhurong with raised eyebrows. The girl hadn't heard anything about him from her father...but then again, she never had any kind of conversation with her father aside from the usual respectful dialogues exchanged between father and daughter. It wasn't a surprise to her that Gunji would not tell her before sending her on the mission. And her expression of surprise would further affirm this fact. Zhurong was her uncle? That was too much for her mind to process at that moment. Her father had asked her to capture or even kill her uncle?! She wouldn't put it past him though, given his demeanor and personality. Her lavender white eyes would travel to meet that of her uncle's, hoping that there was at least some mutual understanding. When it came to her father, any Hyuugan would know that he was ruthless, if not evil behind that helpful and kind mask of a face. Her silence would hopefully speak volumes more than what her words would as she bit her tongue.

    The private quarters that Zhurong had opened and shown them was actually extravagant. She glanced over the armor and weapons that were on display. It seemed to fit him that he would have such a wide variety of weapons although the dust that had collected now on them indicated that they were literally just on display. Ami would hear what Gen had to say, agreeing quietly as he questioned him. The thought of the man being framed by someone just seemed so unlikely that it had been something that played on her mind ever since she stepped foot in the temple. There was something off about this man now...she couldn't quite put her finger on what it was. The girl would think about it, waiting for Zhurong's explanation. But she had already made up her mind that no matter what he said she wasn't going to trust him. She wanted to badly to be impartial, especially since now she realized that he was her uncle. Yet...yet there was also that family tie. Ami would be battling herself in her mind thinking of what to do as she waited for him to reply. She would distance herself from her uncle just a little, off to the left side of Gen, preparing herself for the worst.

    He listened to the man in front of him with a growing distaste for the words being used, yes his school was faltering but the matter of fact way that Gen had presented it was stinging to say the least. There was merit and truth however to the words of the young man though as he was right that it had to be one of the other masters doing or possibly a failed student? But he had never taught another Hyuugan his art and it was clear from what accounts were spoken of that whoever was fighting used the spinning and powerful movements of the Jade Dragon Style that he had founded and made famous. Scratching his head for a moment he would finally shake his head and speak frankly, "I don't know who could have possibly done this, I really don't I have never taught someone with the byakugan which would have been required to do the damage that was done to those peoples tenketsu points, let alone the fact that it was done using my personal sty-", and has he was about to finish his sentence a loud piercing shriek would echo through the halls of the temple from the grounds. With an abruptness Zhurong would be off and away towards the sound obvious compassion in his every moment.

    Listening to the man before him speak about how he had literally no idea who was culpable Gen was concerned to say the least. How could such a heinous act go unseen? and without any hard evidence to back up who was responsible as it was becoming quite evident that it wasn't Zhurong who had done this, if his words were to be believed. Alas as he was explaining even further that the exact art of how the gentle fist was applied here a scream came through into the mid afternoon air, piercing and blood curdling as hit echoed through the tower and the temple grounds. Seeing Zhurong leap up and run towards the noise like a concerned father it cemented even further for Gen that he was more then likely not the culprit.

    Bounding after him with Ami hopefully in tow, he would race down the flights of stairs with a clear goal in mind of reaching the bottom. The scene that would unfold before them was that of pure chaos and violence as  the temple grounds facing the entrance they had come through earlier was dotted with bodies of students, hacked at and lifeless littering the long stone steps up to the exit, as well as the grounds itself. Roughly twenty students and attendants in all were seemingly cut down and had their weapons and bodies broken in horrible ways. Death had come a calling, and taken many with him it seemed. Speaking with measured shock, "
    Master Zhurong was with us the entire time... who did this?", these bodies were expertly cut down and it seemed even to his eyes that the bodies were dismantled with great precision and speed. Even his rudimentary knowledge of where some tenketsu points were in the body utilized in basic acupuncture, those areas were bloated and distorted like the bodies in the reference photos from their mission docs.


    That is when the air would have a ringing noise like that of a wind chime carry out through the temple. A man clad in armor like that of Zhurong's with a Guandao of his own, that had a chime in its pommel, was standing at the top of the steps leading out into the Debon plains. He had a helmet on that had dragon motifs as well as his armor. His weapon still dripping with the blood of the fallen as he flicked it once, and the blood went flying off of his blade before he spoke, "The Jade Dragon at its true potential! Hyuuga Zhurong! These is the result of your inaction! I will take everything that you love and is yours, and you will pay for your lack of honor. Starting with this!", he would reach for a bag that was seemingly attached to the man's waist as he tossed it down the steps and it bounced all the way to the main plaza before it rolled several feet and landed at an attendants feet. Using the moment to leave he would slip out through the gate and be off into the distance.

    The attendant would scream in terror as they picked up the bag and opened it, the head of one Hyuuga Liu Wei seemingly evident inside. Tears began cascading from their face and that of the other attendants as the situation became grave and more desperate with each passing moment as more and more people saw the face of Zhurong's only son. Bounding forward he would grab the bag from the attendant and look inside before crumpling to his knees and sobbing, letting out the wail that only a grieving parent could manage, "He took my son! He took him from me.... Meiling... I am so sorry... I couldn't protect our little boy.....", he had been rendered unable to speak as his words became more and more intelligible from his sobbing as he cradled the decapitated head of his son....

    The scream of terror was just enough for Ami to expect the worst to come. She had been calculating, mistrusting of her uncle this entire time, not once anticipating the fold of events that were to come only moments later. As she listened to the man, she could sense some sincerity as he milled over the mystified case of the case presented before him. Perhaps it was because he reminded her of her father in some ways that made her start to have a little doubt of him being behind this heinous act, or perhaps she was just unwilling to admit that someone who was a close blood relative could and would do something of such dishonour to the Hyuuga name. As the scream pierced through the room, the trio would run towards it, Ami following Gen and her uncle close as her heart raced. It was definitely not a good scream…she thought to herself.

    As she ran down the stairs, the young woman could see bodies of students littering the ground. It was not hard to put two and two together as Zhurong had been with them the whole time that this had happened. And Gen would put those thoughts out verbally as she looked at the person with the armor, her lavender white eyes rested on his attire more than his face. Ami would hear him speak and then watch as he threw a bag down the steps. She had half the mind to chase after him but knew that even her skills were unparalleled against this man, since he had so brutally slaughtered so many people without much effort. Perhaps Gen shared that sentiment as neither of them moved while he ran away. Ami would watch with horrified eyes as Zhurong fell to the ground, crippled with sadness and despair. The head that was in the bag belonged to his son…his only son. It would take her a moment to recover from the shock herself before she made her way carefully to her uncle.

    Placing her hand gently on Zhurong’s shoulder, she would kneel next to him, her eyes welling up with tears of unexplained sadness. A man she shouldn’t empathize with, a man she had not known about in her life for the past eighteen years, was now breaking down in front of her. She would cup her arm around his head, pulling him close into a hug as he wept, a tear cascading down her own face. In one day, she had reunited with her uncle, learned about him and lost her cousin. A whirlwind of emotion gripped at her heart as she held him in a long embrace. No words would part from her lips, as she was at a loss for what to say. At least she found out what she had wanted to, that her uncle was innocent of the crime. Ami would have hated to fight against her own family, although at the back of her mind she was still thinking about the armored man.

    Who was he? Why did he do what he did? What was the motive?
