1 Force on the docks (Hanbei/Nk) on Sun Aug 27, 2017 5:32 am

Rippa

Rippa had maintained his residence at the sword saint compound while awaiting further summons to the Hokage's office. He was concerned with the rapid change of Kage but other than that was perfectly happy to be back among his men. His trip to Kumo had been nothing but fruitful he thought though not much in the way of fruit. There had been a shift in seating there as well so he wasn't able to meet with the Raikage. He had however met with a fairly prolific member of their jounin ranks and taught them a bit of ninjutsu. Hopefully by strengthening their forces konoha would be looked upon favorably by their neighbors in the mountains. Regardless it was no longer his issue. Instead he was taking the time being back home to relax a little. Skirmishes on the border were becoming smaller so it was mostly being handled by the ANBU patrols leaving his men alive and healthy. All was well within the division and yet something was different. The men had bred themselves night and day for combat. They lived through battle after battle and were constantly prepared for the next one. Being on leave had been nice for the first couple of days. After that a couple fights broke out and tempers were high. The men were in need of direction and release. They weren't blood thirsty animals but they were dogs of war being chained to a pillar. Alpha dog among them or no they were prone to misbehave.

He himself was laying in his cot in the barracks as the morning sun was just rising. His swords were still on the stand having been left to dry what little polish was left on them rather than being immediately re-sheathed. He was a creature of habit and his habits had him clean his weapons as often as was possible. In the compound it was safer to take apart the hilt of his weapons and clean it entirely. In the field he had to settle for a cloth being wiped across it here and there. Still his sky blue eyes would shift to the sound of boots slamming on wood as they drew nearer to his door. His body would shift upwards in one rapid motion as he spun. Grabbing his swords by the handles as his feet hit the ground and turning with crossbows pointed at the threat. Hammers cocked back. His men respected the barracks and under any normal circumstances wouldn't set boots on the wood of the barracks itself. It was disrespectful to ones home. Boots were removed prior to entering. That left another possibility. One he would confirm in a moments notice. Two shadows loomed in his door before it slammed open. A pair of masked bandits were there somehow within the village. Each with a katana in hand. How they got into the sword saint grounds was beyond him but he wouldn't spend time guessing. The moment they both slammed into the room with weapons drawn practically dripping killing intent he pulled the triggers on his crossbow.

The first man took a bolt through the eye and fell back to the ground with a thud. His body already dead before he hit the ground. The second managed to step into the crossbows path and take it to the shoulder. Before he could recover from it though Rippa had slid passed him in a step as his katana blade would slice the mans gut. In the end of that step he would be in the courtyard. A single drop of blood dripping from his blade. He would swish it so the blood would fall away before turning to face his attackers. The man he had caught in the shoulder pulled the bolt out and tossed it to the ground at Rippa's feet. An impressive throw since Rippa was several meters away and he was holding his guts in. The man pulled down his mask as he stumbled forward and spat at Rippa. Smiling through blood soaked teeth. "You may have saved yerself captain. But the docks is already ours. The village burns tonight!" With that he grinned and a surge of chakra happened on both his arm and the dead mans. Rippa saw it starting and immediately launched himself backwards. Not sure what would happen but glad he did. He could only shield his face and drop to a knee as two barely separate explosions rocked the barracks tearing his room to bits. A small fire started where the two men were now just stains on his walls.

Quickly men were assigned to put out the fire while the majority of the compound was raised to emergency status. Men armed themselves in full combat gear ranging from light to heavy armor. Men with spears shifted with men with swords and shields. Behind them men with bows and crossbows formed single file lines in four single file lines of eight. A total of eight swords and shields with sixteen spears and thirty two archers ready to go on a moments notice. Rippa himself was dressed in his command gear. A dark vest with a long red coat with the captain symbol on the back and a konoha headband stitched into each shoulder. Dark pants and boots on underneath with his belt of ammo tightened securely. His twin katana crossbow were fully loaded on his back crossed over each other. With that done he led the men in a rapid movement march to the docks. When they arrived fires had already started and people were fleeing the docks themselves. There were only two ramps up from the docks with wide stone staircases. As they arrived he positioned four swords and eight spears with two archers at each entrance. Along the ridge between the two ramps moving up the other thirty archers lined up and took aim waiting for any bandits to start funneling in through the single entrance to the docks. A cement gate that stood open with only smoke from the fires visible inside. Rippa stood behind the archers stroking his beard. Odd that they seemed to be waiting for them to charge. What would benefit them from close range combat?

Special Jounin
’As the first boom echoed, Hanbei felt the loss...’


There was a boom, Hanbei had been in the markets near the docks at the time, an explosion in the distance perking his ears as the loud bass hit the young girl in the core. Shocked, she would look up and her first instinct would be that, there were likely people who were hurt. The instance was some form of industrial accident, leaving the stall that she was in with a single powerful leap she would land with a grunt on a roof-top and charge at full speed at the docks. Though as the picture came into view, more and more Hanbei began to believe that there was no accident involved in the catastrophe. Jumping down to the street level, Hanbei would slow her approach, looking around at the ninja as the ferried innocent civilians out of the war-zone. Her eyes resting on a woman making a statement to a local special jounin as she wept and pleaded. Attempting to give all the information that she could, but she was clearly terrified and in shock in one form or another. However, as she spoke there was a couple of clear descriptors that Hanbei managed to hear.

The first of which was not uncommon, the talk about how they were men and women in turbans and swords that had attacked them. But the greater piece of information was that they had symbols on their bodies, symbols that when a ninja had struck one down, they parted, and the man that had been killed exploded into a fireball that engulfed his opponent, allowing him to be, in turn, killed. Hanbei's heart sank. They were the Sunagakure Bandits... were they so brazen that they would launch an attack on Konoha just for him? Why were they so desperate to see Hanbei taken back or killed? He was nobody... although, perhaps they wanted him to seek out where Tenmei had gone to, being the far more potent Jounin that had wiped out the most of them. Looking to the Jounin that the woman was talking to, Hanbei would quickly approach.

'Her mind racing as she wasn't sure how to deal with all of this.'

"Ah, Sir, my name's Hanbei Guanyin, I couldn't help but overhear and I believe that I've fought against these people before. If you could take me to the person leading the organization here I would be more than happy to aid in taking them down." The Jounin would look to him and nod, passing the woman off to a chuunin who would take her into triage with the other victims as Hanbei would be moved to the front-lines that would have been set up little more than moments ago. some-one would have had to claim leadership of the area here and asssumed command. Whomever that may be, the Jounin bought the girl to another Jounin with bright blue eyes. They were the first things that Hanbei happened to notice on the Sword-Saint. Introducing himself, the Jounin would tell the leader that the girl that was with him claimed that she had information about the attackers. A statement that Hanbei would acknowledge with a nod as she began to speak up.

"What he says is correct, I think by their description the bandits you're fighting are the same ones who held me hostage for two years in Sunagakure. They're katon experts and have a body seal much like a stronger variant of the Bomb seal on their bodies that their commanders are capable of setting off with a single hand-seal. I thought that we had crippled them and killed their leader... But, apparently there were more of them than we had given them credit for. Since then, they had attempted to attack me in the forest outskirts of Konoha once, but the village ANBU got rid of them. I'd never believe they would do something like this. But, if this is anything like before... they may be after me... But I don't know why. But I would like to help, if you can think of anything, please... I'm a Special Jounin from Kumogakure, I can help."

Hanbei would look up at the jounin and wonder what his next course of action. Hanbei would be staring at the ninja with her Violet eyes, black rings cutting through them identical to the famous chakra powered eyes of legend. Her eyes a natural mix of fear, anticipation, nerves yet overbearing them all was raw determination and strength of spirit. Even in lieu of her weak form.

Rippa had taken up a command post with his intentions clear. If any hostiles tried to come up from the docks they would be eliminated. A message had already been sent to double the ANBU patrols and modify their current routes and times. Someone had been studying them and probably tipped off these bandits on how to get in.He doubted these bandits had managed it on their own. Smart attackers would of positioned themselves in key locations for a simultaneous attack. However they had only chosen to take out one threat from what he could tell and had failed at that. Perhaps their whole plan relied on the disorganization of him being caught in the blast or even cut down. If that was the case they were sorely mistaken. It was good that he was as capable as his title of sannin suggested. However these people were a threat still. They had made it into the village and secured a port of trade. He needed to move to eliminate them but knew so little of the enemy. Perhaps they wanted it that way. They wanted to lure in his forces for some reason. The longer this stand off stood the less moral the village might have.

However his attention had been pulled for the time being to maps of the area. They had look outs everywhere surrounding the area for if these individuals were capable of supernatural walking practice or even just grappling hooks. He wasn't of mind that the only way out was just the door and ramp. However the enemy hadn't moved as of yet. They knew if they moved to the water they would be caught in the open and cut down with well placed raining arrows. If they tried climbing the walls then jutsu would envelop them one at a time as they shifted to an awkward angle. What held his attention the most was the ramps but even with a bulk force there would be casualties before they ever reached his line. Were they planning something else perhaps? His eyes closed for a moment as he considered the possibilities. A knock on the wooden post to the strategy tent drew his attention back to opening his eyes. A jounin was standing there with a young lady. Thin and almost sickly but with hair much like his own. The first thing he noticed was her eyes. He had studied the legends and depictions of century old stories. Most considered it fiction by now but maybe...still he would nod to the introduction and listen to what the lady had to say. Listening for tone and key phrases of doubt one might be using to mislead him.

"What he says is correct, I think by their description the bandits you're fighting are the same ones who held me hostage for two years in Sunagakure. They're katon experts and have a body seal much like a stronger variant of the Bomb seal on their bodies that their commanders are capable of setting off with a single hand-seal. I thought that we had crippled them and killed their leader... But, apparently there were more of them than we had given them credit for.

But, if this is anything like before... they may be after me... But I don't know why. But I would like to help, if you can think of anything, please... I'm a Special Jounin from Kumogakure, I can help."

He would raise an eye brow at the young ladies words. So they were katon specialists. There was going to be fire spreading from this fight. They needed to suppress it as best they could. Keep it from spreading. That aside the fact that this girl was in the village and so were these people supposedly targeting her made her story more believable. At least part of it. The details about who they were and what they did was clear and confident. However when it came to why they were after her the hesitation was obvious. She knew more than she cared to let on but he would ignore that for the time being. He wondered if it was due to her eyes but instead he would nod. His eyes glancing back to the map of the docks. They were likely going to use fire as a smoke screen and then get in close. Cost them death for death. One bomber could take out an entire unprepared squad. The death count would be dangerously high if he didn't have this information. He would look to one of the jounin and speak up with authority. His words to be obeyed immediately.

"I want Suiton specialists to the front line immediately. At any sign of smoke or fire suppress it and clear it. Use only ranged tactics as much as possible against the enemy. Prepare barriers around the area so they can't get out and once that is done we will make our next move. Go." With his orders out the Jounin vanished and he would turn to the young lady. His blue eyes looking her over for a moment. Normally he was far more friendly but for now, for now it was war. "A special Jounin from Kumo eh? Well out of your jurisdiction. I am Chi Rippa. Captain of the Sword Saints division and Sannin of Konoha. How would you suggest we go about this than mystery...hmmm...Sir?"

'Hanbei's eyes would lower as she was lost in thought...’


The enemy that they were after were desert rats, they were able to sneak into any nook and cranny, and last time they had used a main attack as a distraction to use an attack to the side. Their soldiers wore crimson cowls and cloaks as well as baggy silk pants, however, the ones that had attacked hanbei in the forest had worn other clothing. So, there was the chance that once again, this was a massive distraction to hide smaller sneaking forces that would have entered the village through other means. The sad thing was that Hanbei didn't know the layout of Konoha as much as she would like. So, rather than thinking about the specifics, she would focus on what she knew of their enemy and how they operated, that information could then be cross referrenced with the information this Rippa person knew in order to co-ordinate an attack.


'It wasn't much, but it was a start.'


"They're saboteurs who are more than happy to sacrifice the many to attain their objective, so, i think its a fair bet to think that the major force is a distraction to take your attention. They wear a sort of uniform, which draws your eye and has you look for the uniform more than they themselves. It would be the chakra signature of the brands you should lock onto to find them i guess. Uhm, are there any drainage pipes or aquaducts from the factory area they could use? Or a way to travel that's unique to the docks to get into konoha? Rivers maybe? They had to have attacked there for a reason right?"

Hanbei was sure of the conclusion but she couldn't be sure of the why, and she could have never known the typhoon that was coming this way. The bandits that had holed themselves up in the docks would have set up a barrier of their own, using destroyed landed boats, crates and other matter which they would have set on fire to create a wall of smoke and hazed air. Should ninja attempt to approach the smog there would be arrows and fire-balls launched in their direction. They weren't the most accurate, but it could be dangerous to get too close, the orders of the Captain would likely keep his men safe for the mean time. Though unknown to him there was a shark in the waters, it smelt blood and was baying for food.

"However, if they're after me, I'm trained, and not against being used as bait. If they've come in this far twice with this many I doubt they want me dead, so, if you could use me as a hostage you could probably break their ranks... I wouldn't oppose being the trojan horse, so to speak."

Rippa would glance at the young man as he slipped into thought. Not drawn to impulsive reactions he noticed. He wondered why he chose to appear so feminine though. If not for his own medical expertise he might have believed the boy a girl as well. He supposed if the Jounin were simply using it as a disguise it was a decent idea. No one would be looking for a man if something went awry. On the other hand this was all just a theory to test to begin with. The individual claimed they were after him and that would explain why they showed up on his radar at about the same time. For all he knew this kid was just telling him lies to ease him into a sense of comfort. He had no way to confirm in the current situation the young mans origin. Then again he was making another assumption. Young? What was to indicate that but what he saw? Already the appearance of another gender had him suspicious. Would it be so difficult to conceal ones age as well? The world was a dark place indeed. Still the man known as Hanbei had begun to prepare himself to speak. It was time to pay attention.


"They're saboteurs who are more than happy to sacrifice the many to attain their objective, so, i think its a fair bet to think that the major force is a distraction to take your attention. They wear a sort of uniform, which draws your eye and has you look for the uniform more than they themselves. It would be the chakra signature of the brands you should lock onto to find them i guess. Uhm, are there any drainage pipes or aquaducts from the factory area they could use? Or a way to travel that's unique to the docks to get into konoha? Rivers maybe? They had to have attacked there for a reason right?"


Saboteurs? His thoughts shifted to the men that tried to take him out already. They had managed to slip in already and there was little indication that was all who had. The idea to lock onto the chakra brands was a brilliant one though. Already they had begun to detect strange chakra signatures within. He wanted to compare them to the ones that had attacked him but he had his place at the command. However the part of the docks they were on did have access to drainage pipes. Rippa had spent time down there himself just practicing his chakra control with the tide. He would click his tongue and raise his right hand. As he did an assistant would step forward. Now was as good a time as any to test this Hanbei's information.

"Contact the guards of any prominent individuals. Do not raise panic as you do but have them be alert and looking for the chakra signature of the brand. Also, have a team of ANBU enter into the sewers at the sword saint compound and backtrack to here. Have them report in any sightings of residual chakra signature. Lastly bring in the sealing division. I want a chakra seal over the area. If they intend to use explosive jutsu over close combat we will take that advantage."

His eyes were drawn to rising smoke from behind the wall. Were they simply burning property in spite? He took into account the words Hanbei had said. They were trained. Perhaps not in combat but they were not fools. No, these were not acts of wanton aggression. It was a smoke screen. However a sheen of red was rising over the area in a large triangle from three different points. Covering the docks and locking what forces were there in. Even with a smoke screen they had no escape now. The seals would be placed within the barrier and the side they would enter in was left open. If they chose to come that way nothing but death awaited them. Still it was Hanbei who spoke up again even as the assistant rushed off.

"However, if they're after me, I'm trained, and not against being used as bait. If they've come in this far twice with this many I doubt they want me dead, so, if you could use me as a hostage you could probably break their ranks... I wouldn't oppose being the trojan horse, so to speak."

He let his blue eyes fall on the man. There was the risk he had been waiting for. If he used the boy as bait he could simply use the event to rejoin the enemy if he was working for them. At what gain though? He was close enough to set off an explosion and do some major damage but to begin with no one was sensing the chakra brand on him. This was his own test to administer. He would raise his hand and stroke the white stubble on his own chin as he considered it. There was one way of testing this without putting the foreign shinobi in danger and without letting him have the chance to join up with the enemy if he was with them. If he did as asked it would at least confirm for the time being he was willing to lay waste to the enemy. So Rippa spoke once more.

"Very well. If they want you badly enough to slip into a desperate enough move to attack Konoha so directly, we should let them know your here. With any luck it will spur them into something foolish like a frontal attack. Obviously they have been tracking you so likely they will recognize your chakra. Do you have any long range jutsu someone in Konoha is unlikely to have? Perhaps the ability to rain hell down on them from here? Sensory units are reporting in there are no surviving citizens on the docks. So feel free to unleash a little."

'Hanbei knew exactly what she needed.'

The boy would focus his chakra, using as much strength as he could muster to draw out the dharma needle of the guanyin as well as activating his object permenance technique. With the two combined, he would be able to throw and use his needle and allow it to exist in the world even though his skill level would not normally allow him to do so at his current rank. Looking to the Sannin, he would nod, he had been tortured for 2 years in their hold, allowed to focus and rest just enough to restore enough chakra to use this technique in order to heal himself before the torture would begin again. He was afraid to die then, it didn't take much to pressure him into healing himself, motivated by nothing but fear and the fear of pain. Had they decided to kill him then, it would have been done in the most painful way imaginable to the boy. So, coiling the long needle back like a spear in hand, Hanbei would take a running step before hurling it like a javelin into the area where he knew that the enemies would be. The shining blue needle penetrating through the smoke like a beacon as the shouts and jeers of the assailants would fall quiet in the distance, indicating immediately that they had seen it...

There would be a pause...

One would be able to hear a pin drop it was so dense, but an experienced fighter and strategist like Rippa would surely know the thought processes that were now happening behind enemy lines, doubt, questioning, confirmation, doubt again as they would not know what to do, affirmation, preparation. Each of these boxes would be ticked one by one as they would rally to perform exactly the risky move that Rippa had hoped they would commit. There would be the sound of footsteps a plenty, no charging cry, no wail or scream yet as they would hope to use the smog to get as close as they could. Some moving over rooftops, some keeping into the alleys and trying to circle to whatever amount of flank they were able to get, while a huge force would come from the front, numbering in their dozens as they would hope to rush them. Scimitars in hand as daggers would be thrown and arrows let fly from the darkness towards the ninja force. Once they were within range, Pheonix flower jutsu would be activated and launched in a volley... proving to hanbei it seemed that they had been given some training in the time he had been gone...

"here they come!"

An ANBU would warn, however, like all great diversions, there were other schemes at work. Sewers were a dangerous place when against this kind of opponent. As the allied force entered the system and hunted down, they picked up a couple of moving chakra signatures that were on the move, each of them katon like the ones above. Nodding they would move to charge them all down, but, as soon as the battle would begin, whether it be a move of lunacy, or one of strategic brilliance, the attempt of a pheonix flower jutsu would ignite the methane in the pipes, prompting the ANBU to hastily erect a barrier fast enough to save their lives and take the edge off the blast, but not strong enough to hold back the pressure and force of a whole system of gas and save them from debilitating wounds. So it was, a messenger was being sent back to Rippa for reinforcements, while the others would attempt to hold off the deep striking sewer force. A shadow war underneath the country to protect the rear of the defending shinobi forces.

Rippa would wait and watch as the young man would seem to consider the standoff. How he might involve himself further along the way of the battle. If he could do as Rippa had asked of him. Already he could see the technique forming in the boys mind and he would cross his arms and turn to glance to the rising smoke column into the sky. So this was the target of the assault? What had prompted them to be so bold against Konoha of all things? Through out history their strength had never been up for doubt. Their economy and their military force were both considerable the majority of the time. Even if they got away here somehow they had to know that Konoha would dedicate a considerable amount of resources to tracking them all down and inflicting vengeance upon them. This one boy couldn't be the one thing they were after. Or perhaps it was the one thing someone of influence had. It wouldn't be the first time someone with resources didn't care who stood in the way. If that was the case these were just pawns. Men about to die for coin and the source still unknown to him. But not the boy.

His blue eyes would turn to glance once more at the boy as he began to gather energy. If not for the fact that they did not negotiate with terrorists he had no obligation to a Kumo shinobi. Even as some of the sealing division began to arrive and set up there would form before him a vision. The boy gathered a pure white energy. Like transparent lines of dove feathers floating around him as they all focused into his out stretched hand. Rippa supposed even if they were the type to negotiate he wasn't one to let threats bend his sense of right and wrong. The boy formed a needle as long as a spear and gripped it i his hand. Something about the needle was frightening besides the size of it. More so than Rippa's lightning javelin. More unique as well. If there was a signature jutsu for the boy it was likely this. Hanbei hmm? A name to recall. Still the young man launched the spear through the air as it shot through the smoke and left a hole in its wake. With its passing all sound beyond the smoke seemed to fade to silence. It was about to begin.

"Ready yourselves! Pick your targets!"

As if in response the force moved forward. Beneath them something shook the ground with a large explosion of fire. Rippa stood his ground though with confidence. Unclipping his two crossbow katana from their sheaths. He wanted the front line. However he was the only command unit there at the moment. Even as foot steps rushed forward the barrier would drop sealing them in together. The sealing division was finally in place and ready. Men from the enemy side started throwing phoenix fire jutsu at them but they faltered and faded mid air. The anti chakra field was in place. Arrows flew but they had the high ground. His men were trained with their chosen weapon well before any jutsu. Targets were picked and a volley launched picking off targets without any mercy or survivable wounds. Chest, eye, throat, any of them were wounds that could collapse their ability to breath. Some were turned into pincushions while others were simply hit once and dropped. Their charge cut short. After those a set of three volleys were launched into the smoke where the enemy arrows had come from. Inaccurate but plentiful enough to hit something. Even as this continued Rippas attention was drawn from the messenger. The explosion beneath them explained.

"Take all but three of the suiton specialists with you. Flood the sewers and set extra patrols from the base shinobi not in a division. Reporting in on the hour. If they are still in the sewers we will drown them. If they are not, we will find them."

With that done Rippa would turn and begin walking towards his men. Glancing to Hanbei. Speaking calmly as they put down the rush of men that initially came at them. Nothing but bodies on the floor. "We are about to push and clear the docks since we have shut down their suicide ability. There is a field keeping chakra from forming outside of the body so if you feel vulnerable feel free to stay behind. Stay with the archers and they will protect you. Or confront the enemy with the advance force and myself and see what you will for yourself. The choice is yours." With that said he moved to the line of spear-men behind sword and shield lines. Drawing his twin Katana repeating crossbows Adam and Eve as their metal glistened in the light of day. Was one archer going to go with them? Well it certainly appeared that way.

"We are about to push and clear the docks since we have shut down their suicide ability.

Or confront the enemy with the advance force and myself and see what you will for yourself. The choice is yours."

Hanbei would think for a moment, a lot of his skills came from his own chakra reserves, if chakra had been nullified in the area they were entering, then it would be even more dangerous for him specifically. However, he still had some needles, he would likely just have to preserve their use in combat and always keep behind the lines of another ninja or area. Hanbei would draw a set of six of his senbon, looking to Rippa and nodding with a stern look upon his face, holding each of the needles between his fingers in balled fists for the mean-time. The guanyin needles were apparent, the symbol for their clan upon their mat black shafts as the silence of the battlefield began to wane. The flanking attackers from either side had done a little bit of damage to the ninja forces, as they had been largely focused on the main force, though the high grounded snipers made easy work of them after their hands had been played. The skill of the attackers was not high enough to truly capitalize on a successful strategy as it played out as they had intended. Hanbei was almost shocked at the efficiency of the Konoha ninja. It was true what they said about their ninja forces, it was a diverse array of ninja from all backgrounds that had learned to move and work as a single cohesive unit, rather than individual fighters with incredible skill.

'that's not to say they weren't skilled.'

"I'll go with you, they have archers still so at the very least I could maybe cover your back, even without chakra. it just means that I won't be able to heal you if you get hurt. I'll await your signal commander." Hanbei would speak formally as if to a superior, looking forward and keeping his keen eyes on the battle before them as they prepared to go over the breech. The enemy they were facing was fearless, even though they were bandits, not a single one of them broke in terms of morale as they charged into a blender, they fought like animals, some of them requiring to be put down with multiple arrows to simply halt their progress. These were not like the same men that Hanbei had escaped from in Kumogakure. They were vultures at best, scavengers that had accumulated a small army to take advantage of a lawless state. These men were like religious martyrs, but the marks, shades of their skin, weapons and fighting style were still the same. Something must have happened to the group... that was all he could think of.

Taking a step up to be beside Rippa, Hanbei would keep slightly behind him as his needles were at the ready, bringing the two that would be thrown first between his forefinger and his thumb while the others pointed back in his fist with their points towards his wrist, ready to be flicked around with his dexterous fingers and be thrown without needing to go back to the holsters on his fore-arms. The enemy force had been weakened, but beyond the initial charge a fair few of them were hiding within buildings and other structures, small groups and ambushes ready to strike at the counterattacking ninja forces. Half as many as the full charge, but many of the commanders of the bandits lay in wait here, the ones who held the reigns, B rank assailants who were far more savvy with the sword and bow than their men... yet as they waited, something had happened in the sewers.

Several blood curdling cries echoed throughout the sewers before being cut short. Ninja reports would spy an unknown man exiting the sewers with several wounded ANBU in tow, covered in their own blood but without visible wounds to speak of. As he exited, he would hope to move on by without question, but if halted, he would wait as instructed, with a stern warning against violence In this particular case. He'd claim that he had healed the wounds of those he had pulled out of there, and dealt with some of the threat within, soonafter the rushing of water flushing the system could be heard and a few other lower cries would be heard as they were swept to the exits of the sewers where they would meet their deft fate. Looking back to the open manhole the stranger couldn't help but end with.

"I suppose its a good thing I did, or you would have lost men..."

A moments distraction as a small geyser erupted from the open port, and the stranger was gone. All to be reported to Rippa at his designated time.
