Fanho sat on a bench by the front gates of the village as he leaned forward on his knees propping his head with his hand. He took one look at the sun rising over with an orange glaze setting the sky ablaze. He decided they'd leave early in the morning, best to travel during the day, and reach the southern border as the sky fell. Under the covers of night they'd undoubtedly run into whatever rogues laid await on the suspected drug route. Apparently the drugs had been causing a rise in crime in the southern towns. With Fire Country police forces having issues maintaining the peace they hardly had the time to investigate the flow, however they were able to determine it was coming from the southern border due to there being no issues else where in the country. The trickle of drugs had popped up about five months ago when one was stopped crossing the border. The man fought a tenacity equivalent of a shinobi, and the durability of one mad man. Deep lacerations, stab wounds, and even dismemberment didn't stop him. It took the Fire Country Samurai Lieutenant stationed to hack the man down.

With these thoughts freshly weighing on Fanho's mind he scratched his head debating if it was a good idea to bring the two. After all he was requested by the council to test their skills, however he wasn't sure if this mission was appropriately ranked. After all this was something a Jounin should've been able to solve single handedly, but I guess that's why it made sense to send someone of Fanho's caliber and a Chuunin, Genin team. He'd be able to keep an eye and intervene while also able to finish the mission. He shook the thoughts from his mind, they were capable and able to hold their own. It was unnecessary worrying that wasn't going to assist but hinder Fanho. He had to trust in their skills, wits, and hearts. They were Konoha shinobi after all. Fanho's fingers rhythmically tapped his chin as his foot patted the ground in haste. Now where are these guys?

Isuzu made his way towards the village's southern gate with his backpack strapped firmly to his shoulders. He hadn't been on a mission in a very long time, never the less a C-rank one. It was usually customary for those being considered for chuunin exams be given a C-rank mission to prove themselves. The Hinoshi had a sneaking feeling his father had something to do with arranging that, but none the less he would make the most of his chance to prove his father right.

Arriving at the designated meeting location, the young boy saw Fanho sitting over by himself on a bench. He seemed deep in thought, so Isuzu did not want to disturb him and instead made his was over and simply took a seat beside him without saying a word. It didn't appear as if Fanho had realized Isuzu was there at that point. He kept his backpack on as he assumed their third member would be arriving shortly and thus they'd set out.

Niku was excited to be going on a mission, a real mission. She'd been doing odd jobs around the village for too long, this was a chance to really show her skills. She hadn't paid much attention to who else or how many were going, just excited to get out there and show her worth. She grabbed her satchel, throwing it over her shoulder before bolting from her house. The gate where they were supposed to meet wasn't too far, so she knew she could make it in no time flat.

Just a moment later, the speedy, newly-minted chuunin arrived, sliding to a stop a couple meters from the bench where Fanho and Isuzu were sitting. "Hey boys, ready to go?!" She was glad to see 2 familiar faces, even if one of them was Fanho. She'd always acted like a lovesick puppy around him (a revelation long time coming); so she'd promised herself long ago that the next time their paths crossed, she'd play it cool and play hard to get. Her mom said boys loved the chase and she'd know, she had boys chasing her all the time. On the other hand, Isuzu was someone she felt threatened by, not physically; but she remembered questioning whether his nindo was better than her own. On their last mission together, his way of performing the mission had proven much more effective than anything that she had come up. She had finally come to the conclusion that both of their nindos had merit and their place in this world... she just worried another interaction would prove her wrong.

Regardless of the nervousness both of the gentlemen in front of her produced in her, Niku carried herself well with a big smile on her face. She was still excited to get out there show off her training.

As everyone gathered together Fanho slapped his knees and got up with excitement. "All right!" As Fanho began walking towards the gate, and figured he'd give everyone a run down of the situation. "So I'm assuming you guys have been informed of the mission, but I'm gonna go over it one more time to make sure we're all aware of the situation." As their feet all tapped with erratic rhythm Fanho cocked his head up as he looked up at the orange painted sky. A beautiful day to take a walk straight into the den of a drug kingpin. "Drugs on the border have been washing up, apparently this drug is like steroids but on some real crack. Which is indeed whack by the way." The lucid details that we're given in the report we're gory, gruesome, and downright gut turning horror story. The man hyped on the drug had ripped one man limb by limb and beaten the poor samurai with them. Another one had his steel armor turned against him as it was caved in crushing his ribs and organs. As Fanho paraphrased all of this to give the details to the two, he felt maybe it had over shared, but quickly shook the thought from his head.

This was a dangerous mission, one perhaps Fanho disagreed with the ranking, and it was only in their best interest they we're aware of every danger and detail. It'd save them possibly from a mortal injury. "It's been trickling in and causing havoc on the southern border. No telling where its coming from until we get down there and investigate. However these guys must be within my skill set if I'm going along. So beware you're going to be facing people possibly that surpass my own skill set. If this ever happens you each will have one my kunai so I can teleport you instantly." As Fanho spoke he pulled two kunai inscribed with a fuuinjutsu that glowed with a pale purple light as he tossed it to Raizou and Niku each. "Oh, and I'll be inscribing this fuuinjutsu on you guys so we can talk to each other. Its doesn't cost any real chakra so don't expect it to take you out of a fight." Fanho took out a pen as he inscribed the fuuinjutsu on each of the duo. It may have been awkward being in close proximity, but it was a necessary precaution. It'd let him be able to talk to his team, and see if they needed assistance.

Niku listened intently as Fanho went over the mission, including many details about what people on these drugs were capable of. She was glad for the review, because she hadn't really paid all that much attention to the briefing earlier. As mentioned, she was just glad to have a real mission to show off her skills and she hadn't even realized that Fanho was leading the mission until she'd seen him on that bench. Now, a bit of nervousness creeped in as she realized just how dangerous these individuals were and hearing Fanho warn them of people that he might have trouble handling was definitely not reassuring. She contemplated facing someone as described by Fanho as Fanho utilized his immense knowledge of fuuin to inscribe their genin teammate.

When it was her turn, she couldn't help but blush as her superior began drawing just behind her ear. The close quarters was definitely awkward, but Niku did her best to keep her cool; however, this was the most intimate the two shinobi had ever been. For now, she mused, a small smile crossing her face. She hadn't considered that the facial movement would undoubtedly pull her young skin tight, meaning Fanho would likely be able to tell even from behind her ear that she was smiling.

But moments later, Fanho had to go inside Niku's mouth to complete his fuuin. Not quite what I had in mind, she mused, not having paid attention as Fanho had been working on their third member. not that I'm complaining...

A mission, a new mission that wasn't just a random chore. At one point in time Raizou would have felt elated to hear about this, but now? After the catastrophic failure that had been his last mission, he wasn't at all looking forward to this but he had accepted. A drug rink and a new kind of drug, it was simple on the surface, and he hoped it remained as such. It was thoughts like these that followed him as he made his way towards the gate of the village. He checked his pouches again and again. His sealing strips, his scrolls, and his weapons. They were all there. He squeezed his forearm just as well, at least he had managed to improve just a little bit in the meantime.

So what was left for him to improve on? This would be a test of that. Just as he steeled his resolve, he arrived at the gate. Was he the last one to? He got that feeling, but thankfully Fanho didn’t seem to be impatient with him. The other person here was...Inken, Nikuya. He had only seen heard their name, and not talked to them yet. But before he could actually get to introduce himself, he listened to Fanho’s explanation. At some point, Raizou soundlessly repeated the word ‘whack’, though he managed to let a small smirk onto his face anyway.

It wasn't because of the mission, it certainly sounded like a handful, which made Raizou’s smirk drop away. The mention of someone on this person’s level, that was hard to take in. He thought he had an idea of Fanho’s strength, something far away from the reach of normal shinobi, a reason as to why he was one of their more famous shinobi. But a drug that could provide the same benefits? That...was terrifying, but he didn’t want to let it show. Though his strained expression could say more than any amount of words.

He caught the kunai and gave it a deeper look before pocketing it in his right leg pouch as he gave a nod saying he understood. He was the first to have himself tattooed, thinking not much on it, which was easier when he had a bunch of things on his mind.

That was that, it was done. ”That’s good to hear, it would suck for my reason of death to be, ‘Didn’t know when to shut up’.” He said as he stuck his hands into his pocket. ”Anything else, like the appearance of the drugs, or other symptoms? Usually it’s heightened aggression, but if it’s some kind of altered performance-enhancing drug, then the kick back might be higher? Something to take advantage of would be nice, maybe too nice?” If something like that had been found then it might well have been in the briefing.

As Fanho mused the question Raizou asked Fanho scratched his chin. Symptoms of the drugs was an excellent question as well as looking for any sort of openings the drug's setbacks might leave open. "Well heightened aggression is indeed one of the symptoms as well as bloodshot eyes and enlarged blood vessels so their veins and arteries should be pronounced. There's also an increase in muscle growth they become quite the hulking creatures." Fanho ran through some of the pictures captured in their observation of the compounds and bloody fighting rings they had the drugged up people take. However in each one the drugged seemed to be controlled by some sort of ominous figure not caught on camera except in a silhouette. If one of them got out of hand the next photo they'd be lying in a pool of their blood. These hulks were at least eight to ten feet tall, taller than Fanho by about four feet. So someone able to take them out had to be at least Jounin level.

"There are some unknowns in this mission, while the intel team were able to get enough on it to keep us from flying blind there's also factors that they unfortunately were unable to catch. Keep your ear to the ground and your eyes peeled. As for kickback after their little trip? Usually there's a severe kickback that results in internal bleeding for the user as their body can't keep up with the rapid changes, it hasn't been tuned yet for such a boost so their body starts to fail." Fanho turned around as he finished strapping his bag to his back filled with provisional supplies in-case they were out in the field for a long duration, as well as a few scrolls sealed inside were camping supplies. In a pinch if he needed to he could teleport the entire squad back to Konoha in an instance in-case things became too dangerous. After all the mission was lowly ranked but Fanho was heavily skeptical about the council's ranking for this particular one.

"Any other questions before we set off?" Fanho felt confident that Nikuya could observe and determine the correct path for the situation. After all she passed her Chuunin exams with flying colors with the Hokage's son, a feat with tremendous pressure, however he couldn't help but worry about his younger cousin. He was still a fairly green Genin, but already asking the right questions which took some pressure off Fanho.

Niku listened intently as Raizou and Fanho went over the effects of the drug. She was mostly just playing with the scroll Fanho had given her, before pushing it into her satchel. She realized that she didn't know Raizou, evidence that he hadn't been in her class as she had been quite popular amongst her group of genin. Looking at him a little more closely, she was pretty sure that he must have been older than she was. It was a little weird for her as she was accustomed to being the lowest rank shinobi on a mission and now she wasn't, but even more awkward was that one of the people she outranked was older than she was. This was her first time in such a situation, though it likely wouldn't be the last as she was likely to continue climbing the ranking ladder. She was pretty sure Fanho had experienced this before, seeing as he was still incredibly young, but having attained the village's highest rank. Of course, there wasn't really any time to ask for advice on how to handle this scenario.

She shook her head in the negative when Fanho asked if they had any more questions. Knowing these guys are huge will make 'em pretty easy to spot, she mused. She wasn't too worried, knowing she had Fanho as backup but she was excited to test herself and her new abilities and this seemed like the correct opportunity to do so. After Fanho seemed done with official business, Niku saddled over next to Raizou so she could introduce herself. Normally, she'd make some sort of joke about how hot Raizou was or asking him if he were single, but now that she was a chuunin... she just wondered if that sort of behavior was beneath her. Of course, hitting up another Awai might make Fanho a little jealous. Shaking her head in the negative in response to her own thoughts, Niku spoke to the genin "Hey, I'm Niku, we're practically the same rank cause I just recently became a chuunin." She was trying to build up their relationship as more of equals rather than a kunoichi that outranked him, though someone could easily misread her tone and think she was attempting to nonchalantly brag about her recent promotion.

Raizou listened as his queries were being answered, it seemed that there was a bit of room for manoeuvring here. He had been quite concerned when Fanho had compared their strengths to his own, but if it were as temporary as this, and as demanding, then perhaps...It wasn't going to be as tight as he’d thought, but even so. But he’d do as told, which was keep his attention up high. A border stop, he wasn't a green Genin, but he was still a Genin, so he’d need to take a big precaution here. ”Big, red-eyed, and on a craze. That should be enough.” He said with a smirk. ”I’ll try not to slow you guys down, so don’t feel like taking it easy.” He cracked his neck side to side, confidence in his voice that he did not really feel.

Well, he took a deep breath, no need to let himself get paralyzed either, he’d been working hard recently, so he wouldn’t make the same mistake as last time. He could move how he wanted, he could see things around him, his nerves weren’t getting the better of him, he was fine.

It was while he was calming himself, that he noticed the other member of their team, Inken Nikuya, approach him. An introduction, that was what he should have done first. ”Nice to meet ya, I’m Raizou. No need to be so humble y’know, getting promoted is impressive, and it can be a real slog to get to there.” He said, keeping his smirk mostly on his face, a light tone, relaxed was his usual in appearance. He wasn't as good as he used to be at talking, it was harder to find the right words nowadays. Even more so, he had to fight down that well of bitterness that sprung up every time others succeeded. It was dark, disgusting, and ever-present, Raizou didn’t need it, it didn’t help him.

So he needed to take himself down a level. ”I flunked my exams, so I definitely know how hard it is. So I’ll be counting on some tips later on alright?” He said before chuckling, letting it roll through before he adjusted his pouches. ”But I guess we should get going now huh? Hey, Fanh- Sir?“ He let that sit on his tongue for a second, drawing on it aside, he had spoken without really thinking about it, and referring to his cousin in such a formal way felt weird, but then again he was the person in charge of this mission. He’d go with that until told otherwise, that seemed to be the best approach.

”What’s our approach to combat? Engage as necessary, engage when told, or avoid?” He had to clarify, different groups had different ideas on how things went; Raizou was in unknown territory. This was a supply cut-off mission with a chance of combat, but well there was always a risk in this kind of thing, he was told of it.

As Raizou and Niku got to the introductions greeting each other he could see Niku was taking it all in stride while Raizou was asking a lot of questions to be diligent for the mission ahead of them. He figured the duo had prepared for a long walk and journey to Konoha's border however he was going to be able to save them the trip. The scout team that had learned the presence of the drug runners also ran out one of Fanho's teleportations scrolls to the location so that way he'd be able to quickly travel. Albeit it may have been a noisy and flashy endeavor it would be the quickest way to get there, and hopefully the drug runners patrols hadn't spanned that far out however Fanho's teleportation scroll was tucked away neatly in a cave so it'd at least square away from prying eyes.

As Fanho began focusing chakra on the space in-front of them glowing bright purple in the square just before Konoha's large green gates he heard Raizou propose a question about engagement rules. Of which Fanho placed one finger up to his chin tapping lightly. "Basically we'll hold off engaging unless it hits the fan. At that point we'll stick together and engage them together as a team. Like I said, I'm not too sure about some factors about this mission so we'll try to keep close for the most part." As Fanho finished answering Raizou's question a large temporal portal would spew out from the ground as a fountain as it took up quite a large space for the trio to travel through. The feat gained looks from passerby civilians, guards at the gate, and those within range. A few people even walked out to their balconies to see what had occurred.

"Alright through the portal, and watch your step. Don't trip on anything. Where we're going its dark." As they passed through the space of the portal it collapsing on itself as they passed through it'd lead them to a dark and damp cave with dripping sounds from stalagmites and stalactites formed through years of countless wet seasons trickling into the cave. It was quite dark, darker than the bright morning they had been greeted with in Konoha. They were deep in the cave, as expected of the scout team to practically bury the damn scroll to keep it from those who he'd rather not know about it. As Fanho flicked his fingers a bulb about the size of a baseball gathered and formed a very bright light. Enough to illuminate the space around them in the cave. "Let's get to the surface shall we?" Fanho grinned widely to his party as he picked up his teleportation scroll and tucked it away in his backside belt pouch. As they trudged along to the surface the bulb in tow the skittering of very small creatures could be heard lurking in the shadows darting between cave walls, the sloshing of water as the critters passed through attempting to avoid their new found visitors.

As they reached the surface, the day would look just as it did when they left. Fanho's light orb would pop in a shower of sparkling and dazzling light. Their new scenery was a much more foliage covered forest as opposed to Fire Country's. They hadn't expanded this far, but there was a coastal town for Oasis that was only about a 2 day journey from their current location. Perhaps that was the port of entry? as the thoughts attempted to trace back the theoretical origin of the drugs. Despite it being touted as a socialist paradise the leaders did have a tendency to make questionable partnerships to line their own pockets.

"Alright so there's a hill about ten kilometers that way. I'm gonna make my way up to it, it should only take me a few seconds. For the time being I'll have you guys scout below." As Fanho spoke he pulled out a map that had already been drawn on to make up the plans. From here the duo would walk down along the upper-side of a cliff facing the trails below people used to get in from the Oasis country border. It was a treacherous ledge, but it'd let them stay out of sight and in relative safety. "As long as you guys stay on this path it should steer you clear, when I'm up on the hill I'll have a better view on pinpointing their hideout, and then I can direct you guys to a spot above it."

Niku felt bad for bringing up the chuunin exam, it was definitely something she hadn't needed to say. In an attempt to make herself seem closer to him, she had in fact led Raizou to focus on his own shortcomings. In truth, Niku knew she had waited quite late to take the exam; so while she had passed on her first attempt, she had also been considerably stronger than most when they took the exam. It wasn't that she'd lacked the confidence to take the exam earlier, scheduling and things just worked out that way. She was glad Raizou was so easy going, he could have been much more gloomy having been reminded of his past failures, but he seemed to be moving forward, rather than dwelling on the past. This was a trait that Niku appreciated in her fellow shinobi.

Niku listened as Fanho described the team's interaction plan, though it was generally what she had expected they would do. She still felt that it was good to have the information out in the open. Niku had witnessed Fanho's teleport before utilizing space time, but she'd never been teleported. She was actually kind of excited as she stepped into the portal. She quickly found herself in an incredibly dark... area. She heard water drops, but she couldn't be sure where she was yet; until Fanho solved that issue with a ball of light, revealing their location to be a cave. She followed Fanho out of the cave, eventually seeing the sun's rays reaching into the cave. Once outside, Niku looked around, getting her bearings.

Niku observed Fanho's words, the hills he'd pointed to, and the path he indicated they should take. "Alright, we'll head that way," she said, turning to Raizou "Ready?"
