Mission details: The Village is located near to the border of the country and is raided almost every other day by a group of 5 bandits all are low level to where a genin can handle them in a fight and only wield a kunai. mission is repeatable due to multiple bandit groups being able to raid the small village and the small village can be different. when confronted the leader will send in the first to fight when he loses he will send in the second, after which the last two will jump in and the leader will try to escape while you're distracted, do not let him get away for he will go get another group of bandits and come back resulting in a failure. if he is captured the leader will attempt to cut you in on a deal, whether they are all caught or all killed mission will be complete, if one gets away mission failure.

  • Name: Bandits

    Other: only the leader of the bandits actually talks all the others only make noises like whooping and hollering.

It was time for Aikiko’s first mission, an occasion that she had long awaited. Aikiko and Kejido’s sensei was doing some sort of one on one training so it was up to the two of them to get it done. Squad X-2, was quite the unit even with Aikiko’s sharingan dormant, the young woman was quite capable. The man who was to be her partner in this endeavor, Specialist Kejido Heishi, was more than capable as well. Kejido was the spearhead of their squad, the one offensive force that they all relied on. For this mission, Aikiko was glad that it was him that could come. Her sensei, Shigeki, would have been overkill for a C rank mission but Kejido was just right. This was on the more dangerous side of a C rank mission. They were being called to help a smaller village on the border of the Earth Country that was under siege by bandits. Aikiko’s specialty was in disrupting her opponents, as much as she hated to admit it Aikiko was coming to terms with the fact that she needed her squad mates. They truly did complement each other in ways that made them stronger as a whole than as a person. Aikiko had even begun to develop techniques with this purpose in mind whereas before her techniques were solely for her own use. The genin had even begun sharing techniques among the group so that they could use them more effectively. They had come to the conclusion that their illusions would be far more effective at breaking their opponent’s minds should they be stacked one on top of the other. Enemies would escape from a technique only to find themselves still under its effects.

Aikiko would find that her staff had already laid out her combat gear, a kunai and eight senbon, knowing her preferences they had elected to leave her Iwagakure headband in its place in her vanity. The young woman slid on the black tank top that featured the famous emblem of the Uchiha on its back its soft fabric hugging her body, allowing for a wide range of movement with little restriction. After sliding on the black shorts that she chose for much the same reasons as the tank top, the young Uchiha would gather her weapons, the 8 Senbon in a pouch and the kunai tucked into her tank top, able to be drawn with ease should she need to. Aikiko was admittedly vulnerable in hand to hand combat, while she had easily bested her peers while in the academy Aikiko understood that this meant very little in a real situation. The young teen was far better at defending herself and parrying blows than dealing actual damage with her strikes. The dagger wasn’t even that useful either, it was more to have something that could help than anything else. Aikiko in truth was terrified of close combat, and was glad that Kejido would be there since he was great at it. Aikiko had even begun to warm up to Ryo as well, while she still didn’t exactly like him she could at least respect him, he too had shown growth and Kejido had been successful in motivating him. If one day Ryo started to self-motivate she thinks even she could come to like the man. If he ever did rise to the level of being able to control his clan’s famous advanced chakra nature, Dust Release,  even Aikiko wouldn’t be able to deny his usefulness and power. Aikiko had begun to learn humility in her time with her new “friends” and it was quite becoming of the young Uchiha. Aikiko even went so far to thank her butler for ensuring her needs were met and that she was informed of her mission. The young woman set off for the village gates where she would meet up with Kejido and set off to help break the small village’s siege. When Kejido would arrive, Aikiko would smile at him and hold out the pouch of senbon to him "I believe you've asked for these. I have no use for them. Keep me alive out there please." The last sentence would be said quickly and sheepishly, Aikiko immediately regretted it. It was a sign of weakness, and Aikiko felt ashamed showing it.

730 words.



Kejido had been informed he was to take his junior member of the squad on a two man mission together. One fraught with danger for the both of them. A village had sent word for help against a group of bandits raiding them repeatedly. The two of them were tasked with handling this however they saw fit. The concept concerned Kejido somewhat though. He had no mission experience with her and unlike the mission he had dragged Ryo along with this one actually implied combat. He would need to be prepared to handle the given situation. He needed to take this seriously and as such his typical outfit wouldn't be suitable. He was aware that Aikiko was more of a support role in most cases so he would be the driving force. As such he would take the part seriously. His schooling in military tactics of the past came to mind as he settled himself. This was going to be a hell of a time. He also knew one thing. The village had left it to their discretion for how to handle the enemy but sent people with little sense of how to take a target in alive. They intended for the bandits to die. Or for the two of them to give their lives for the village.

Regardless he wasn't know for his hesitation. He would slip into a pair of black shinobi pants that were fairly well fit to his legs. Not tight but not loose enough to make any noise as he moved. He slipped into a pair of padded shoes and slipped a kunai into his belt on either side of his hips. He would then slip into a form fitting black tank top that had a turtle neck that went all the way up to his nose. After that he wrapped a scroll around his right forearm so the letters were facing outwards and pulled on elbow length gloves over each arm. Finishing with a pair of tonfa over his shoulders for weapons. The scroll was connected to its other half at the bottom of his weapons chest. If he needed more weapons he had access to them via that bridge. Still he would head for the door of his apartment and grab a black bandanna on his way out the door. Tying it around his hair so only his eyes and upper arms were showing. If he had the flack jacket and armor pieces he would look every bit an ANBU.

It would take him a minute to reach the gates before he noted his would be partner there. Not exactly as decked out for combat as he was but still looking like she was taking this seriously at least. Their lives were on the line. Still this would be the first time she had seen him out of uniform and dressed for work. She might not recognize him at first he realized. So he would approach her with his silver eyes all that was visible on him. He would wait for her to recognize him before she handed him a pack of senbon with a smile. This was certainly a change in pace. She mentioned how she had no use for them and asked him to keep her alive. He would almost scoff before taking them and tucking them into the small of his back. After which he would hold out his right hand and with a puff of smoke two head sets were on his palm. He would pick one up in his left hand. Wrapping it around his neck like a collar and putting the ear piece in. Handing her the other one. Speaking in a humored tone through his face coverings.

"I could say much the same to you. After all if either of us are wounded you become the most important member of the team. Shall we?"




Aikiko didn’t recognize the tall figure approaching her, he was clothed all in black and had weapons all over his body as well as a flak jacket and additional armor. The man at first appeared to be an ANBU so Aikiko stood up straight as he approached. Once he got closer Aikiko had a moment of realization. The tall “ANBU” was in fact Kejido, her partner for her mission. The man would take the senbon and they would pop out of existence, presumably he had sealed them. That would explain the scrolls that Aikiko had noticed on his person. Kejido would pull out a radio set and put the earpiece in his ear before offering one to Aikiko. The man was prepared to the extreme, Aikiko hadn’t much equipment to speak of mostly just herself and her medical knowledge. Kejido agreed that her skill was valuable to their operation and suggested that they set off. The black haired teen would nod and set out, Kejido easily keeping pace with her as they left for the border of their country. The roads in and out of Iwagakure were busy and their progress initially was slow, giving them time to talk with one other. ”Kejido, how do you plan to deal with the bandits when we get there? I’m sure they won’t be subdued easily; they’ve terrorized the border village from what I’ve read in the reports. I’m not saying they are a match for us simply that they will be emboldened by their success and likely to fight to the last man. Growing up, my family forced me to see death at a young age so I’d be ready to face it. I’m not afraid of killing them. It would be our duty as Ninja to put the wretches out of their misery.” Aikiko was excited truth be told, while it would be nothing on the scale of her first shinobi kill, killing a group of bandits was still a good first step for her. In her family you were not truly considered a Ninja until you had killed another Ninja in combat. Aikiko would wait for a moment before adding on to her statement saying in a suggestive manner, ”I suspect there will be no survivors among them once we’re through.” Aikiko’s usual smug confidence bordering on arrogance would appear during her speech.

Aikiko’s grey eyes would be focused on Kejido, awaiting his thoughts on tactics. Her thoughts wandered to the first time she’d seen someone killed, she was too young to fully understand what was happening. It was probably best that way, Aikiko had become desensitized to violence and death at a young age before it was too late for her to be normalized to it. The young Uchiha was a kunoichi of a different sort, bred for and taught from birth for her family’s lifestyle. Kejido was from a similar sort of a family, one that even Aikiko would consider good. The Heishi were well respected in high society of the village’s elite clans. Her mother had told her that they were a strange family that handled ranking a bit differently than the average shinobi did. Aikiko didn’t fully understand or know about it however she suspected this is why they were set apart, similar to her own self. Aikiko was excited to get to know the man, they’d surely be good allies going forward and Aikiko thought that she would be able to boost the young man to heights neither of them could achieve alone given her unique skill set. Aikiko’s second specialty was using techniques that made her allies stronger and faster. First and foremost, Aikiko was a specialist of genjutsu many of her best marks growing up having come in genjutsu practice.

”Kejido, how do you plan to deal with the bandits when we get there? I’m sure they won’t be subdued easily; they’ve terrorized the border village from what I’ve read in the reports. I’m not saying they are a match for us simply that they will be emboldened by their success and likely to fight to the last man. Growing up, my family forced me to see death at a young age so I’d be ready to face it. I’m not afraid of killing them. It would be our duty as Ninja to put the wretches out of their misery.”

His attention was drawn to the question. He supposed directly attacking the enemy head on would be fool hardy and risky to the missions success and their teams survival. Just attacking them wouldn't stir up enough fear for a partial retreat in all likelihood. They were outnumbered and easily flanked so they needed some sort of advantage. Aside from them not knowing that the two of them were coming. Well there was an idea. These were bandits and she had the appearance of a well off young lady. Though her callous attitude toward the slaughter of men was intimidating. He knew it was likely just a part of being an Uchiha but it was still difficult to ignore. If she were to turn against him one day it meant she would intend to kill him. As she did these men. His silver eyes glanced back to her in silence a moment while they moved at whatever pace she seemed comfortable with. Before finally speaking in return. Having thought through a plan.

"You are going to need to trust me on this one. I want you to hide your weapons on your person and keep the appearance of a lost girl. Nothing to indicate your a threat. Stumble upon them and appear like an easy mark. Frightened and lost. I will circle behind them. The moment one of them approaches you take advantage of their lowered guard and kill them. In the shock of that moment I will end their leader from behind and together we will mop up the remainder in the confusion with their leadership dead."

He wouldn't really wait for her reply before he noticed the trail leading into the woods where the villagers had claimed they came from. It was distinct as if they weren't trying to hide. He would shift into the woods to follow it and move up into the tree's. Indicating for her to stay low and follow. Together assuming she followed they would progress through the woods in radio silence. It was getting dark by the time they came across the camp indicated easily by loud whooping and laughter around a bright campfire. Kejido would stop moving on a thick branch well above them. His left hand bracing him against the tree as he stood tall and his right moved up to press the button on his radio. Allowing it to crackle to life. To talk to her. If she had hers on.

"Five bandits ahead. Scattered around a camp. I believe I have identified the leader. You're up."




Aikiko was going to have to trust Kejido on this one it seemed, his reply made that much very clear, "You are going to need to trust me on this one. I want you to hide your weapons on your person and keep the appearance of a lost girl. Nothing to indicate your a threat. Stumble upon them and appear like an easy mark. Frightened and lost. I will circle behind them. The moment one of them approaches you take advantage of their lowered guard and kill them. In the shock of that moment I will end their leader from behind and together we will mop up the remainder in the confusion with their leadership dead." Trusting others did not come easy to Aikiko, especially when it came to Kejido who had deceived her a couple of times already. Without even waiting for her to agree to his humiliating and dangerous plan he was rushing into the woods. Aikiko just looked around, uncomfortable and confused. She wasn’t sure what to do but listen to the man, removing her weapons she cast them aside into a nearby brush, not that she’d put them to much of a use. The only training she’d had thus far was with the straight sword that had been in her family for many years. Aikiko was left with her thoughts while Kejido scouted on ahead. She thought of her future and of her clan. Aikiko couldn’t feel like she didn’t fit in with the others in the village. They all had a different outlook and attitude towards training and to their own expectations of themselves. It seemed as though from Ryo, and other’s in her class in the academy that many were content with themselves as they were. Aikiko knew herself to be the most elite among her peerage but she knew she could be more. The Uchiha were always destined for great things. The clan histories were proof enough. You didn’t even have to go that fair back to find the great Hao Uchiha, terror of the world for so many years. Aikiko hoped that her name would be remembered as the names of her great forebearers were known. One could only dream that people would one day tremble at the whisper of her name as they did others in her great clan.

Aikiko was snapped out of her delusions of grandeur by the sounds of her radio crackling to life. "Five bandits ahead. Scattered around a camp. I believe I have identified the leader. You're up." Aikiko would take a deep breath before offering a one word reply of affirmation to Kejido, “Okay.” Aikiko closed her eyes before opening up her left arm with a very thin cut, thanks to her weak body though it would give a fair amount of blood. Aikiko bit her lip to avoid crying out and rubbed a bit of blood around and started walking into the camp with a limp. Aikiko used her genjutsu to add a bit more damage as well as the appearance and smell of travel: dirt, sweat, scratches from brush. It was an effective façade easily able to fool the banditry in this camp. Aikiko adopted the voice of someone weak from running long distance, taking gasping breaths between words in a hoarse voice, “Help! Will you help me? My parents were hurt and I’ve been running all day, help me please!” The surly bandits were easily distracted by Aikiko’s presence being made clear. Some of the rougher looking ones chuckled a bit as they approached. Aikiko’s feigned fear quickly was turning real, the men did not look like the type to help a lost girl in the way she’d want it. Aikiko spoke softly into the radio, panic in her voice, “Kejido… plea–“ Her words would be cut off when she was grabbed roughly from behind, Aikiko began kicking to avail and could only hope that Kejido would come soon.

670 words, total word count is 2,045.



Kejido would circle around as she progressed forward. Quiet at first in her own way but certain to distract from his movements in kind. His strategy was fairly sound. Distract, cut off the head and intimidate. Killing would be a part of this mission but nothing to really scoff over. They were killers. What he hadn't told her was he didn't expect them to be fairly helpful in their intentions towards her. If anything he supposed they would be fairly harsh but not right off the get go. If anything there would be jesting and boasting. Perhaps a little infighting over who got the little girl. The blood she added was a nice touch. A wounded girl was even easier prey. He would smile as he circled around to their rear. All eyes would be directed in one direction he was certain. Too foolish to set up a perimeter guard. He suspected they were not the brightest to begin with given they had chosen to be bandits so close to a shinobi village. Did they not think there would be a response? Perhaps they didn't fear the village. Thinking it too weak or unable to focus its efforts on something so small. Regardless of their reasoning, they had been wrong.

Still he would slide into position behind a tree with his back to it. Glancing up to be sure that there wasn't any danger above. Her voice rang out even to him as she arrived on the scene. No danger above. Still his silver eyes would shift to her and note the fear in her movements. Still the unexpected happened. One of them stepped forward at the laughter of the others. Towering over all but the leader and reaching out to grab her by the neck. He expected her to disable him with ease but instead she seemed to struggle there. Choking as her feet swung helplessly. He would sigh as he realized she was not prepared for actual combat. All that tough talk but when presented with an enemy even of this low level she was sorely unprepared. Still from between his fingers in each hand three senbon would slide forward. He would step out from behind his tree to find all backs to him. His hands flashing outwards as six senbon flew. Landing in a scattered pattern up both the legs of the leader. He would cry out and fall. But Kejido was already upon him.

Even as he turned to look behind him Kejido would reach down and grip him by the chin and the back of the head. Continuing the motion of the mans head turning with a violent jerk and a sickening crunch. Just as easily as cutting a slice of pie. It all appeared so natural to him. Still he would smile and glance to them all before looking to the big man holding his ally. "If you release her, I will accept your surrender." There was a moment of shock for a second before the big man would growl and release her. Drawing his blade as he nodded to the other three. This man had taken out their leader but with a surprise attack. Outnumbered he was likely not a match. The other three would group up and draw weapons. Choosing to charge him at once in a group. No way he could block or dodge all their consecutive attacks. Kejido would sigh as he looked to the three, Seeming to lift only his right hand with his palm directed at them. Once they all launched forward to actually attack his hand crackled without and hand signs and suddenly a wave of sheer electrical energy would burst forth.

The raiton energy would catch them all and thrown them back five meters. Slamming against their own campground and smoldering as they laid there. Conscious but regretting having been caught in it and barely moving. With that Kejido would let his arm fall to his side as the other hand slid into his pocket. Casually walking forward. He would get within two meters before the man would grunt at him. "Don't come any closer. If you take one more step I will kill the...!" Kejido had not opted to take another step but instead his free hand would simply swish upwards. On the mans neck blood would form before flooding out. Letting him drop to his knee's and fall forward to die. Kejido would sigh a moment before stepping over to Aikiko. Drawing his kunai from its sheath and spinning it until the hilt was pointed to her. "Get up. Take this kunai here and go finish the others before they recover. I assume thats reasonable for you." He was unclear on if he was doing so to help her get over the trauma of it all or to simply force her to take three lives. Either way he wasn't joking.




Kejido showed up right on queue.  As she screamed their leader was felled by a swift attack from afar. He then came ithin conversational distance of Aikiko and her captors. He offered them a fair bargain: lay down their weapons and let Aikiko go and they wouldn’t have to die. Such was the case of men of their kind they thought it would be easy to deal with Kejido. They seemed frustrated almost that they had to deal with something before they could take Aikiko away. After dispatching a few more of the men he gracefully strode over to her twirling his kunai and handing it off. “So, you don’t expect me to act like a scared girl anymore?” What Aikiko lacked in strength she’d make up for with cunning and precision. The young woman looked to a pair of the men making eye contact with one of them she smirked and ran to the side opposite his companion, her speed caught him off guard. As she ran she let out a whistle that deafened the three men. They had thought her nothing but a normal teenage girl wandered too far off from where she was safe. The man swung his knives at her but her genjutsu had taken hold causing him instead to swing at his ally. The daggers pierced the man causing him to fall to his knees. While the former bandit’s back was turned Aikiko stabbed him three times, once in each kidney and then another behind the thigh. His screams filled the air as she moved on to the next target. Letting out a giggle Aikiko watched the man confusedly mess at his ears trying to stop the noise caused by her genjutsu. He was effectively deaf and couldn’t hear Aikiko approaching from his back and quickly slice his throat open. The man fell to his knees bleeding out and gasping for air as life faded from him.

After the third man fell Aikiko felt dizzy and her vision got blurry for a moment before everything seemed clearer than before. Aikiko was unsure what was happening, and she looked over to Kejido. When she could see his chakra it was clear what had happened. Aikiko had awakened the sharingan for the first time. Aikiko was genuinely scared for safety when she couldn’t break the man’s grip. If Kejido hadn’t been there it might have been a much different story for her that day. Aikiko supposed that that was why she was tasked with a partner for today’s task.  Aikiko vowed to never be helpless like that again as she excitedly made her way over to Kejido.  “I suppose it wasn’t a total loss today. The next great Uchiha kunoichi was truly born today.” Aikiko made eye contact with the young man purposely showing off the found power in her eyes.  “I suppose I owe you my thanks for not letting those brutes have their way with me. I would have escaped soon, I was just putting on a show.” Aikiko’s eyes turned to normal as she turned to walk away heading off to the village although the true reason she turned away was to hide that she was clearly lying about having the situation handled.

Kejido would watch as her demeanor changed before she snapped up the kunai from his hand. It appeared more of ti had been acting than he had thought. She was going to be decent when it came to subterfuge. Infiltration as well. He would let his hand fall back to his side. For the moment the mission seemed complete. Each of them had done their part and as was expected of him he was unscathed. A glance down at his glove would find his finger shake ever so slightly. Had he ever killed anyone before? Was this his bodies reaction? The heat of the moment was still upon him. Replaying it in his head at how he had put those men down so effortlessly. How he had killed or sentenced them all to death on instinct without hesitation. He would set it aside as adrenaline for now. Not something he would add to his report though. Shakey hands was usually frowned upon in his clan. He had seen people honorably discharged from the military with Post traumatic stress disorder. He had seen them struggle and sink further into the rabbit hole regardless of how much help they had. Usually it ended badly. Of course he didn't care to see his own story end that way. He wasn't traumatized by his work, simply energized by it. Speaking of a new energy seemed to be flowing on the battlefield. The keen sense that he was being watched flooded over him. He would turn to glance at her as she made eye contact with him. The Sharingan....didn't that have to be brought out through strong emotions? Still she would claim she would have been fine without him before stalking passed him. He would tilt his head to watch her head off. Speaking with a grin.

"But of course. Who would expect anything less?"

Still he would wait a moment until she was almost certainly gone. With that done he would let out a sigh. Jeeze this was a chore. Still, an earpiece would go into his hand from within his pocket and he would push it into his left ear. Hearing static at first before clarity. One word was spoken from the other side. "Report." With that he would glance back her way again before speaking in a lowered tone just enough to be heard by the headset. "Mission success. All targets accounted for and deceased. Cleanup crew needed on site. No injuries to report. Subject was responsive to the provided stimulus. It appears if you put their lives in danger Uchiha do indeed awaken the first level of the sharingan. Report over." With that he would turn and begin walking back to his apartment. The day was done, a clean up crew would rid the evidence of any brutality and he was all the better off for it. Still silver eyes would scan the sky idly. Should he have been honest with her? No...he doubted she would of let him take her anywhere if he had.
