The original mission was simple on paper: obtain some Necrosis and bring it back for the ANBU to do as they wished with it. She had even been given a vial from the individual that met up with her to discuss the objectives to her, but they had been straightforward and had not been talkative at all aside from doing the task assigned to them. During their meeting that was entirely one-sided, the skull-masked, darkly cloaked individual informed her that she had to do one of two options. Her first option was to gather information about the Order of the Scorpion, infiltrate their cult, and obtain a sample of the venom that the ANBU asked for. However, the other option for her was to gather information about how to extract venom from a Shuriken Scorpion, locate one, and extract the venom from it. Regardless of the option that she ultimately chose, she was going to have to be fully attentive and be able to adapt to anything thrown her way since this mission seemed like it had a lot of curve-balls waiting for her and if she was not prepared, she would simply die.
The only other information that she obtained from that meeting with that mysterious figure was the scorpions roamed in the desert and the Cult of the Scorpion were likely not too far away from them since they had a strange fascination. Aside from that like many missions given to the shinobi of Wind Country, they were vague and a lot of the pieces had to come together as the mission shaped up since it was hard to give out all the details as many of them were often unknown at the time.
So Samejima Naoki of the Hidden Sand, it was your time to venture into the hellish wastelands of the Desert Expanse if you so wished. You had no real guidance to where to start nor what direction to either go since that cloaked figure had been so vague if he was even real. Maybe, he was just an illusion. Regardless, best of luck to you and be safe out there for one mistake could spell the end of your life. We hope that you have come prepared and come back in one piece, but we will send a search party out if we do not hear back from you in a week's time. Remember the mission and the objectives, but don't go out there trying to be a hero if the situation is not a winnable one.
