Journey to Iron

Post by Sia » Wed May 18, 2022 7:22 pm

It had been a long journey from her home in Wind Country to trek back to Sunagakure and an even longer journey from there to Iron Country. Still, there was purpose to her movements, and Lii found herself passing the time quickly, traveling in her landshark form was a breeze after all. She had sunk into the ground, becoming one with the sands and torpedoing off, leaving no traces of her movements. There were no steps taken, no disruptions of the surrounding sands, she merely slid through the entirety of Wind Country underground until she had made it far enough away to stop caring whether or not she was being tracked. Lii emerged from the ground after many long hours of travel and set up camp for the night. She released the fuuinjutsu on her massive scroll, unleashing the tent inside and preparing herself a little snack to pass the time.

The next day, her journey continued. Her goal was clear, she wanted to get out of the country and see what Shio was up to. Their last meeting together had been quite lovely, she had gotten to let loose a little bit, it had been so long since she had trained. She sipped at her water and eventually found herself arriving in Iron Country. She wasn't sure what to expect, but she had sent word ahead of time that she would be arriving within three days. Perhaps there would be an escort. She had to admit, she wasn't entirely sure where Shio had his establishment set up. It would be good to get a tour, especially if she were to be in cahoots with him right underneath Sunagakure's nose.

There were only so many ways to approach the mighty Sanrou from the south. Lii would have almost certainly have traveled through pebble country, as it would be unwise to travel through Earth given current...circumstances. On a large stone arc that was almost assuredly several hundred years old, the Taishou sat cross legged, appearing to be in an semi-conscious meditative state. His legs crossed, the gown he wore tailing in the light breeze as the soft snow fell around him. It was summer, so the flurry was not heavy enough to stick, making the ground soft and wet. Over his years in Iron Country, Shio had found himself more and more found of the light snow, less bothered by it and finding more peace in it.

As Lii arrived, his eyes would slowly open and he'd raise to stand, waving at her from above. Spreading his arms out, he'd give a wide grin, "Welcome to Iron Country.", he called out to her.

"Sanrou isn't far from here, I'm excited to show you my home.", he'd lead down from the large stone arc, his tiny body landing with an enormous thud and cracking the ground, betraying the immense strength he had within him. "I was thrilled when I saw you were making your way up here. Its only been months and it still feels like it's been too long.", he gestured for her to follow, making his way onto the path the stone arc had indicated.

The journey through Pebble Country for Lii had been quite uneventful. She did enjoy the sight-seeing, it was a nice change of pace of the outskirts of Wind Country where she had grown accustomed to a life of blandness and peace. Still, in older age, Lii had been finding herself more and more restless. She thought life would be nice, tranquil, and peaceful out in the country but she'd found it more boring than anything else. Such was life, she supposed, but it seemed at least for now she had something to entertain herself with.

Lii had arrived, and to her delight, was greeted by the Taishou himself, whom was meditating peacefully cross-legged on an old stone structure. She smiled when he stood and greeted her, and she shifted into a more regular, human-like appearance as she drew closer to him, the pink sand that made up her land shark form shedding away, parts of it falling to the ground and parts of it appearing to be sucked directly back into her body. "It's been a while since I've left Wind Country properly." She admitted to him as she walked up to his landing spot. "Time passes strangely when you can't die, Shio." She said with a grin. "It's definitely been too long already. I'm restless. I need something to do with my hands." She gestured, moving as though she was strangling an invisible someone. "I'm not meant to be idle and retired," she laughed, and then stepped in next to Shio as they began to travel down the path to Sanrou.

"How did you wind up here in Iron Country anyway?" She asked him suddenly. She had been dying to ask. She wasn't against the things Shio had suggested to her, but she would certainly have some questions along the way.

The arrival of Lii was a happy occasion. Shio had not gathered many friends during his journey, often enemies, occasionally a tenuous ally, but friends? Not so much. It was hard to do when you were creating religious zealots, clearing small villages, and otherwise engaging in less than scrupulous activities. Those were not deterrents for Lii though, it had seemed. Her comment on the odd ways time passes was met with a firm nod from Shio, as his mind scrolled through the various lives of the Taishou before him that had been embedded into his brain, "I get that more than you might realize.", he said with a grin. Certainly yes, it was nice to see Lii again, and to have someone to share with that wasn't one of his subordinates. Much had changed for Shio, and he was excited to share his home.

"We've got a short walk, should be enough time for the story I suppose.", he mused out loud to her question. Honestly, it was mostly serendipity how it had happened, the right events at the right time had put him on the path and with only a few steps he'd found himself in the Seat of Iron Country without fully understanding what he had obtained. "I was already journeying when the Great War broke out, as you're aware. There are countless people within Fountain Country that worship me as a god. They were religious folk, believed in my power and grand authority. I took some of the more able-bodied of them and formed a small platoon and had ventured to Iron Country with the intent of ensuring that the Taishou of Iron would help in keeping the country safe during the trying time.", as they walk he would meander through the complexities of international conflict as he had learned it. Crossing borders, maintaining the fidelity of a country while also having a political entourage. It was complex details Lii probably couldn't be bothered to care about, but they were there none-the-less.

"When I arrived in Iron, I found that my predecessor had abdicated his one duty of neutrality and joined in on an assault. Perhaps he thought that he was encouraging neutrality in it. I don't know. From what I saw of his life, he had been increasingly interested in expanding his power. A dangerous notion. So, with him gone, I challenged him for the seat and he could not respond. When he returned, I had taken the title of Taishou. He challenged me back for it. And given my currently status, as you can see, he lost and I remained at the seat.", he smiled at the thought.

"Its lovely here.", is all he would say at the end. As they went over the final ridge of the hill, Lii would be faced with the mighty Three-Headed Wolf; Sanrou. They had arrived.

She shifted a little while they walked. She was paranoid, a little, she hadn't been sleeping quite properly for some time. Her chakra channeled and surged throughout her body, and tiny flakes of sand began to fan out, likely casting into Shio a ways but laying out here and there finely, gingerly, and most gently about the area as they walked. She left a trail, though not a long one, and the combination of acid and sand worked together in a carefully crafted formula in a unique balance that removed traces of her and Shio from the environment as they walked.

She examined their footprints closely as the sand disappeared, turning into nothingness before dispersing entirely as did the acid and their footsteps had been removed. She adjusted her cores and could feel their pain tugging at her insides. For her, the body was not comfortable. Acid and sand beat into her cores at every turn and she had to make a conscious and deliberate effort to properly circulate her chakra at all given moments just to stay alive properly. She was always on edge. She took a few more steps and listened to him intently, visibly wincing here and there but being silent for the most part and nodding along and adding a few "Ahh, hmms," As she deemed appropriate.

"I try so hard to be neutral." She said finally. "It is a problem though, that boredom comes for me. I am a fox, a trickster, a devious soul at heart, but I try to put on a good face, we can at least smile when we are in pain." She shrugged and kept walking with him. "It is beautiful here...how much do you reckon a nice house is?" She said after a moment of thought.

Shio noticed Lii covering her tracks and gave a soft smile as he spoke. He wouldn't tell her it was pointless...but it was. Even if someone was hunting them down, in Iron they could do nothing. This was Shio's domain, for all intents he was invincible here. Anyone who tried to attack would be facing a very literal army of samurai, many of which were trained specifically to prevent ninjutsu from being used. Who could hunt them here? No one he could think of at least. But, it was a fruitless effort to reassure someone as guarded and on edge as Lii, so whatever made her feel safe he was happy to let her do.

"Residences are free to citizens of Iron.", Shio responded shortly, electing to not yet comment on her stance of neutrality. "Up until the opening of Seikoujo, there was strict population control, families had to register to have additional children. Much of the resources in Sanrou are controlled by the triumvirate, delicately controlled. Everyone pays taxes, and in exchange things like residences, basic needs, basic foods, education, healthcare are freely accessible. You become a citizen, you'll have a home by the next day.", he explained. This was a military society, every one needed to be in peak condition to be able to protect the village or serve it to their best ability, which meant worrying about things like basic needs was not a problem they needed to have.

Shio would lead as the went down the winding path, closing in on the village. "You know, being devious does not necessarily mean you need to cause problems.", he mused out loud, "It's an indication of intellect, wit, whatever you want to call it. You can create plenty of good just as easily.", wise words from a child. Sort of.

She heard the words as they escaped his lips and took them into consideration as the path behind her sifted away. After a few more moments of travel, she stopped covering their tracks, content that enough distance had been erased that she no longer need care. She adjusted the ratio of the elements within her body to be less grainy and more fluid, the grit-like appearance to her skin subsiding into smoothness as the two of them drew closer to the village. "Free residency eh?" Now there was a thought. She listened as he explained more of the background mechanics and gears of the little society he had wrangled a hold over. "That...Actually sounds pretty reasonable, I don't know why the other villages just don't do it that way. Greed probably." She sort of shrugged as she spoke this last bit.

"I'm under the impression there is a formidable amount of Samurai under your reign effectively...Do you have shinobi forces? Is that something perhaps I could help with? I'll admit, as delighted as I am that you contacted me...I'm not entirely sure how to be of most use to the cause. I have it on pretty good authority I am a good teacher. Running an academy actually sounds kind of fun now that I think about it." She rambled a little bit but drew quieter as Shio lead her into the village.

Shio smirked, Lii asked a good question, but the reality was the cultures were fundamentally different, "The villages are functional units of a larger society in their country. Iron Country lives and breathes the realities of war. Their culture is a product of the world the shinobi villages created in many ways. Everyone here serves their role for efficiency in war. And when we are not, we prepare.", he said rather cooly. "This is likely the second largest standing army in the world. Second only to Pebble Country, which is in part composed of samurai soldiers from Iron Country, that will return to us as Pebble finishes building up it's forces. Without accounting for the shinobi villages, none of the Grand 5 have their own armies as sizeable as Iron.", he said in response to Lii's question. "Kemurigakure now stands in Seikoujou, and will be the seat of shinobi power in Iron Country. Though it will be far smaller than any shinobi village, it's purpose is to supplement the samurai force...and address specific aspects of ninjutsu that samurai are less well suited to. A unique perspective I offer as Taishou.", they steadied over the hill, and would work their way closer to Sanrou.

"If I'm honest, I do not think Kemurigakure will be using academies, though I'm not sure. Much of the day-to-day and the infrastructure has been handed over to Io, who is operating in the position similar to what a Kage would. So its unlikely an academy position will be waiting for you I'm sorry to report.", he said with a gentle laugh.

"Though, if you are interested in helping my journey...I have a rather big mission coming up that I would be very interested in your support with...support samurai are less suited to give...", Lii would be a great assist in the Land of Tides. Being able to rely on Lii to instigate the chaos he needed to see in that country would be incredibly helpful. Perhaps she'd be interested.

For a moment, Ikanbi considered to herself how she would go about dealing with multiple samurai at once. She was, bluntly, more of a one on one type of person, but she had seen her fair share of disadvantaged skirmishes over time. Still, shinobi were just as notorious for their sword use these days she supposed. Her mind drifted to thoughts of how Kuuton might be more adequately used against samurai. She imagined momentarily a great wave that crashed into the sands below. A force of nature to grind ones enemies into dust.

For a moment, Ikanbi pulled at her artificial body made of acid and sand and stared at the Taishou before her and took his words in stride. She wondered just what sort of antics they may wind up getting into. Ikanbi hadn't seen battle for ages, she'd been long retired. The closest thing to a fight other than some dull mentoring here and there she had seen had been training with Shio. So, the idea of doing something a little more excited and stretching her legs was nice. With any luck, maybe she'd even make a few friends. Ikanbi eyed around the premises as they walked and talked, her head tilting about and turning. "You have so many samurai, surely some of them are of the...stealthy variety?" She teased him. "No, I understand. What is it that you have in mind?"

So many samurai. Yes, he certainly did. "Its been some time, but if memory serves the samurai population in Sanrou actually outnumbers the shinobi populations of both Sungakure and Kirigakure. Though...comparing their might is not exactly a fair endeavor. Shinobi are a different breed after all.", he mused out loud before answering her question, "Yes, there are some who specialize in covert operations. Io actually was the former commander of the covert operations unit, which is why she was placed in charge of Kemurigakure. Covert and stealth operations for samurai are...interesting to say the least. Without the use of chakra, their forms of stealth are more....practical, or perhaps traditional is the word.", he winked at Lii at this thought and descended slowly down the hill they had been standing on to overlook Sanrou.

"Yes, the mission. I don't know if you've heard of them, but in the Land of Tides there is a clan, the Kuruma. They are well established in the country, but it is a tumultuous country, and they are famously involved in the constantly changing political climate. To put it simply, my intention is to throw the land into turmoil, and then aim to use the turmoil to leverage the Kuruma into joining me in Kemurigakure.", his eyes went to Lii, sizing up her response.

Many of his subordinates simply understood, Kesu didn't even question the plan and Michi was unconcerned with any political happenings as long as he was granted the opportunity to play. The various generals saw it as a power play even if they didn't like it, Io in her innovative mind saw it as brilliant. But Mitsuhide had not been a fan, his displeasure with the plan (though he had tried not to be too obvious about it) was palpable, it was clear he saw the deception as dishonorable. To a degree, it had planted a seed of guilt in Shio, though he had been able to suppress it thus far. But repeating the plan out loud to Lii, even if it was a rough review, watered the seed just slightly. Perhaps Lii being receptive of it was assuage the guilt, though.

As Shio answered her questions Ikanbi nodded along, paying careful attention to his words and the way he spoke. He had for sure become a formidable leader in his time here, she could tell. Perhaps this new village might be worth assisting after all. It's not like she was particularly useful to Suna these days anyway. They never asked her to do anything, they hardly ever even checked in with her anymore. She didn't quite feel abandoned, but, it had started to seem like Sunagakure had all but forgotten her existence. She was an outcast, she lived in the outskirts, unwanted, undesired. Perhaps she would feel more at home here. After all she could surely get behind a lot of what he had said. The living conditions seemed nice, the work wouldn't be anything she wasn't easily capable of. Yes, the thought of up and joining Kemuri was sounding better and better by the moment.

"I have not heard of the clan, but I'll do a little digging and find out what I can." She paused for a moment as he continued and then considered the proposition for a long time silently. "It seems to me, Shio, that despite some of the methods that may be used..." She trailed off momentarily before her gaze turned back to him. "It seems like for the most part you are doing a lot of good here, or at least you intend to. Providing housing, stability, and support for the masses? It's a cause I can get behind. Yes, I will help you." She said the last part quite adamantly, as though she had been cemented into the idea now.
