|Location: Crater City||Mission Name: Political Dissonance||Nanjirou Soku and Toshi||Unit: Diplomat Squad|
Misson Prompt as delivered to Sennin Nanjirou Soku: As part of the Academy's ongoing Career Day initiative, ANBU recruit Toshi has been assigned to shadow you to give them an understanding of the field of interest they have expressed an desire in joining, your task is to guide them and make them familiar with the duties and obligations of the unit. Please take caution in doing so as shinobi units have recieved intelliegnce that the delegation from the port town have not maintained communcation after arriving in Crater City and should you encounter any problems, remember that your duty is to the village and the recruit placed under your care.
Career Day was in full swing and everyone was off to to their respective assignment and locations. Some more eagerly than others, various senior Academy teachers escorted genin and students alike to their prospective senior shinobi who would have already read the prompt delivered to them and had been hand-delivered the file of the person to be shadowing them. The task was simple yet even on a crowded day like this, things were bound to go wrong.
The unit office housed within the ANBU headquarters was a simple sight, most wouldn't even have the chance of looking upon it but in reality, it housed the various members of the misson group tasked with escorting several Konoha diplomats to meet with a foreign delegation from a neighboring town although there was some concern around the mission due to the lack of communcation with the people they were arranged to meet with.
"Lady Fifth must be losing her marbles, really, him?"
"As if that wasn't enough, now we have to babysit." Another grumbled shaking his head at the sheer fact. No one liked a new face, you didn't know their intentions, what they wree cpable of and unless that was figured out, all of them would recieve the same dismissive treatment. There were no favorites in joining one of the village's specialized units and the younger ones would do well to remember that.
Heads turned at the sound of footsteps coming, a senior shinobi leading the prospective academy student or genin. "Come on then." He would snap at the kid gruffly as if the man had more important things to do than escorting these rookies when they could have found their ways themselves as he knocked politely on the door to the office that housed the unit members and the supervising officer before entering.
In this case though, it was the branch Sennin.
"Soku-san, here is the candidate that the Academy sent and one other thing, we've recieved intelligence reports that the delegation the ambassdors were supposed to be meeting with have gone silent, just a fact to keep in mind so we've been asked to keep a more vigilant eye when we set out but that'll be all." With that, the assistant gave a nod and a curt look towards the prospective candidate before slipping out.
OOC Mission Outline for Reference: The senior shinobi meets the candidate in the Hokage Tower where they are briefed by the Hokage on their diplomatic assignment concerning escorting several Leaf diplomats to meet with a local delegation from a port town with the purpose of convincing the town to donate a percent of it's profits to Konoha to help fund their Academy program seeking to open another Academy location in the port town. The two parties meet in Crater City however, it soon becomes clear that the delegation is actually several rogue shinobi from the town who didn't want the deal to go through so they ambused the real delegation and impersonated them. The senior shinobi and candidate are tasked with escaping with the diplomats while the shinobi pursue them through the streets of the city and finally having stowed the diplomats in a safe location, they turn their attention to finishing off the rogue shinobi keeping a few alive to question them to the location of the real delegation so matters can continue unhindered.
