[Anbu/Root] The Search Begins

Post by Texas » Mon Sep 20, 2021 8:06 pm

After the takeover in The Dragon Country, it was clear to Tenzin and Yoru that there was a leak of information. Something was made evidently clear, that leak had to be within the walls of Konoha itself. This would be a tricky operation for the Anbu. To figure out some leads, Tenzin had decided to get the Root agent's involved. The least suspecting agents would most likely be kids.

Tenzin was standing at the meeting room table within one of the rooms at the Anbu Headquarters. A few manila folders that had a large "Classified" stamp in red over it. The shinobi's turquoise eyes peered towards the door way. He stood there, straightening out his body completely. His arms behind his back with his hands holding them together from moving. Tenzin eagerly waited for the Root Operatives to receive their coded messages and meet him at the barracks. When they arrive they will see Tenzin in his normal jounin attire. This wouldn't be a typical mission, but an important one nonetheless.

[Anbu/Root] The Search Begins

Post by Zao » Mon Sep 20, 2021 9:23 pm

It was the young man's day off from both his normal dutiea and those of his 'other' job, he sat in the second floor vedroom of his parent's home just gazing out the window at a large tree not to far away. On the man's lap was a sketch pad and a pencil could be found in the fingertips of the right hand at the moment with a partially completed sketch of the scenery could be seen on the art pad. The level of detail was truly amazing as the artist was able to take his time and simply enjoy the drawing process at the moment compared to his normal rushed style of art as a shinobi.

As he look back up with his golden gaze from the drawing pad to reassess the scene a crow flew by his window, to most it appeared to be just that, a simple bird passing by. But a person of detail would notice something a bit off about the bird as the normally jet black bird had a white dot on the underside of each flapping wing. See this the boy exhaled and moved to toss on his shinobi attire and art equipment before passing by his family downstairs, "I'm going to do a little training mom, I'll be back around dinner time" With a smile and light wave the young shinobi soon slipped out into the bustling city streets of the Leaf village as he made his way to a very specific destination.

That destination was the very office were his new sensei Tenzin-sama was waiting for him as the bird had been a message that he needed to immediately report to the Captain. This was his first time veing summoned outside of training purposes and he couldn't help but wonder if there was a mission or real tasking for him as a Root member. It was quite a trio across the village to the Jounin's office but Akujin has finally arrived as the black haired genin checked in with the shinobi secretary in the regular looking office building before moving down a set of stairs and through a secret passageway that popped out into a specific locationin the Anbu headquarters.

'Here.' The genin hesitated for a second when he saw the door but taking in and letting out a long breath he gathered himself. Finally moving to the door and wrapping upon the firm wooden door three times vefore announcing himself. "Good morning Tenzin-sensei, it is Sozo Akujin." If invited in the shinobi would reach for the door knob and enter a few steps into the door...

The young Spider was in the midst of some intense training when the sound of a crow in a nearby tree caught her attention. Sweat pouring from her body, a myriad of weapons on the ground at her feet, the girl wiped her brow and looked up at the crow, which seemed to be staring at her... "Uh... hi there? Do I have something on my face?" She wasn't used to getting such a stare down like this, at least not from some random animal. But as it unfurled its wings to take flight, the white dots on the underside of it's wings caused her to sigh for a moment... She had been told what such a sign meant.

It meant she needed to change clothes.
Fast forward an hour, and the woman strode through the village with a large green cloak over her clothing. All of her weapons were carefully stored away within her seal now, and she could finally appreciate how light she felt without them bogging her down. Truly, it was a fantastic feeling. But as she made her way towards her destination, all she could really focus on was the lump in her throat... That symbol was an ANBU sign. It was simple, but heavy; "Meet at the HQ". The last time Aiya had met with anyone in ANBU, it was Yoru, and... she preferred not to think about that day.

But as she moved into the office building and checked in with the secretary behind the counter, she moved down a set of stairs and through a passage, making her way into the ANBU headquarters. Passing through the hall, she'd wind up in the hall a few minutes after Akujin, knocking on Tenzin's door as well. "Ibakuro Aiya, reporting for duty... I think?"

One at a time Tenzin would welcome each agent into the meeting room. First welcoming Akujin with a firm "Come on in". Tenzin would watch on as the bottom face covered shinobi stepped into the meeting room. What he would notice were the large oval shaped wooden table, along with many chairs. However, two of the chairs had manila folders with a large red "Classified" stamp over it. With a polite welcome Tenzin offered a little bit of small talk until "Akujin, how have you been?" A simple question in most conversations. It was important to keep the shinobi somewhat light and not stressed out since this mission did require everyone to "act natural".

Within only a few minutes Aiya would follow. Very much like Akujin, Tenzin gave a stern "Come on in, please close the door too". As the spider agent walked in Tenzin welcomed her warmly "Welcome Aiya, nice to see you again hope you have been well". Whether Aiya responded or not he followed up with a "Glad you both made it in a timely fashion. That is very much appreciated." With little time wasted the shinobi motioned for the two to take a seat in front of the folders. "Please have a seat."

The folders would contain mission details. It included everything Tenzin would go over. The main bulk of information within the folder contain all of the staff within the Hokage's office. Everyone from sanitation to the Hokage himself, although most of the information regarding the Hokage has been blacked out. "You can go through the folders as I explain the mission. So during the war there were some complications with leaked information. This caused a few complications that could have caused casualties to not only us, but Konoha as a whole. Now that some time has passed it is believed that whoever is leaking this information has access to them at a high level. After doing some research on our end, we have deduced that someone within the Hokage's office must be the mole."

Tenzin's arms were behind his back as he continuously switched from looking in both of the Root Operative's eyes. With a slight pause the shinobi continued with the debrief. "So today we have scheduled a tour of the Hokage's building. Once in a while the Academy will bring students as a field trip to the Hokage's building. It is a good way for shinobi to learn on a very basic level how Konoha's core operations work. So in about an hour we will join an academy group for the tour. I have already made the arrangements with some of my old co-workers." The Captain moved his right arm and flexed his pointer finger at Akujin's folder. "Inside the notebook there are profile's of every staff member within the building. During the tour it is very common for students to get lost or even to try to adventure on their own. So while we are there we will try to identify anyone that may be suspicious or keep note of any clues found. Lastly, due to this person potentially being dangerous, if any of us fall into trouble but can't verbally warn each other without giving ourselves up we will use a code word. Our codeword is Lord Hokage. So if you are to speak about the Hokage naturally make sure not to put the lord before it."

Tenzin put his right arm down and moved his left to follow. With both arms by his side, the shinobi relaxed a bit by crossing his arms in order to rest them. "I know that was a lot, so if you guys have any questions or concerns we have plenty of time to go over everything."

"Well, Tenzin-sensei." The young man greeted his superior before giving a respectful answer to the man. Akujin glanced over to Aiya who walked in shortly after himself, a person who had become somewhat of a personal rival in his mind for him after the events of the chuunin exam, giving a polite nod of his head as a greeting for the spider girl as she entered into the room. It was an unexpected surprise but he didn't mind it, actually looking forward to working with the fellow Root member on whatever this next assignment from Tenzin-sama could be. With everyone gathered now the man who had brought the pair of young Konoha shinobi together it seemed that things were set to begin as their mentor motioned for them to each take a look at the contents of the folders in front of them on the table.

At first it seemed like just a bunch of random papers to Akujin honestly, but as Tenzin began to go into depth with his explanation of not only the mission itself but the backstory that built up the true 'why' behind the tasking that both Aiya and himself were receiving. He had been both to young and weak to be of any use to the village during the Great War, having barely graduated during the closing year of the war itself so he hadn't truly known about any of this level of information that was being passed to them. But to think that someone would go against the village's Will of Fire and betray the village and their comrades in arms who fought by their side. It was enough to cause a scowl to appear on the masked face of the shinobi, only his narrowing of his golden eyes able to hint at the true expression hidden underneath.

'From within the Hokage's office?' It was had to believe that someone who was so trusted that they were allowed to work in one of the most secure buildings within the village could turn into a spy and traitor for one of the other great villages, but the hard proof couldn't be denied in this case and Jin shook his head lightly from side-to-side as the ANBU commander went into what their individual missions were for today. Finally the words came to an end as the time for questioning was upon the pair. "Tenzin-sama, there several candidates within the notebook..." Akujin had been slowly thumbing through the notebook that contained the profiles of the staff working within the office and as one could imagine it was quite a few including both civilians and shinobi alike. "Will just the two of us be enough to scout out each of these key suspects?"
