Special Jounin
Mission:
Mission name: Secure Supply Lines.
Mission rank: B-rank.
Objective: Paths used by the army for relief efforts are constantly under attack, defend them.
Location: Border camps.
Reward: 500 ryo + 3 EP
Mission Description: Escort high risk cargo or intercept bandit raids on supply lines into Suna.
Development References: What Lies Beneath Event.
Mission Details: Often raided, supply routes are a target for rogues and bandits who seek fortune by exploiting the relief effort. Shinobi can intercept the bandits or escort army cargo and wait, either way they will encounter a B-ranked bandit leading shinobi with Wind and Fire and all B-rank or lower library techniques for his elements. He will be accompanied by at least ten C-ranked bandits, thieves or similar and they should either be killed or forced to retreat.


Raphael was up before the crack of dawn doing his normal daily workout, before beginning his patrol of the Kumogakure border camp. It had been a busy past couple of days, between the work he was doing for the Raikage as well as lending his services to the other nations to provide as much help as he could to the people of this land. From escorting refugees to one of the border camps of the four great shinobi villages to the elimination of those that threaten the peace of this land and even the erasing of the past authority of the land of wind from eliminating the monuments or symbols of the village hidden in the sand or the execution of the criminals that took power since it fell or if you believe the hype those that remained in power after the fall. The young special jounin had done it all, whatever it took to help the people of the land of wind. There were those among the shinobi of the hidden cloud village that questioned the boy as to why he was working so hard when they were not required to do more than was ordered of them by Hastur, the Raikage. Of course when asked this Raphael would simply smile and say that he did not need to be given orders in order to help people, especially his former country men and fellow survivors of the fall of his former village. Some claim the boy to be a bleeding heart and if the young shinobi was being honest with himself he would agree, however the boy does not believe in showing weakness and so would not admit it to anyone else but rather claim that he was raised to value all life and to always provide help to those less fortunate than himself.

The boy's thoughts were interrupted as he passed by the northern gate of the border camp, "there was another attack on the supply shipment, if this keeps up the troops will not receive the supplies the require to hold the forward base and may be forced to retreat or worse. If that position is lost it will set the kage's plan back weeks possibly even month's something needs to be done soon about these bandit attacks." The voice echoed in the young special jounin's mind snapping him from his thoughts and returning him to reality, "what supply line is under attack?" Raphael asked the two men who were talking of the attack, "Kirigakure, since the attack against their forward base camp many of the other nations have been sending supplies to aid them. After the first couple of convoys were attacked we changed the supply lines, yet somehow these bandits keeps finding them." The guards seemed oblivious to how the bandits were finding the convoys traveling along the secure supply lines, to the young special jounin however it was obvious, someone was trading village secrets to the bandits but without evidence to prove it the boy's observation would be dismissed as a simple theory, he needed to investigate this but he would have to do so carefully without drawing the attention of whoever the traitor was.

Without another word the special jounin headed to the deployment tent to seek out the information he required for the next shipment of supplies so that he would know where to start looking. While it was possible that the bandits were stationed all over and the attacks on previous convoys were random and unconnected, due to the fact that every shipment thus far had been raided Raphael could not shake the feeling that they were somehow all connected. Whether he was correct in his assumption or wrong the special jounin was going to find this next convoy and ensure that they reach their destination, as well as find out just who it is behind the attacks.

Chuunin
Birds flew and chirped over the path that led out of Konoha and into Sunagakure no sato. It was midday and the sun was past the horizon as he walked, sweating from the heat. It was quite hot indeed, and the Jonin organizing this mission was well aware of the conditions that this missions shinobi will be facing, so he advised that the group wait till night fall for them to begin maneuvering. Tenjin had earlier been called under his alias, to take a mission from the Konoha relief efforts. The mission was to protect the cargo, and be escort to said high risk cargo or intercept bandit raids on supply lines into Suna. It was also advised that the team setup and build a supply line to Konoha from Sunagakure that is capable of not being attacked during the duration of this event. Tenjin wondered what the team had in mind in regards to setting up a supply line to Konoha, although it wasn't really the priority now as the main goal is to get the current cargo from point A to point B without any interruption. Maybe when Sunagakure is back to its glory days, the Land of Wind might be allying with Konoha? It didn't actually matter though, as long it was to assist the current state of the once great Sunagakure no sato, he would complete the mission. Dirt crunched on the path beneath Tenjin's feet as he walked, slowly getting warmer as they furthered themselves from Konohagakure border camp. Apparently two supply lines had needed to be built, a path through the Land of Wind from Sunagakure to Konoha’s border camp. Sunagakure no sato, being the land of deserts, was an industrious place to create paths which nobody has walked on, making the route untouched, was already done. All Tenjin needed to do was guard the cargo with his team, while he and his crew further map the path. They were supposed to be working on a mined out area in the side of a hill that they had already started, and Tenjin was headed there now.

After an hour or so, the location where the team will meet was visible a couple meters in the distance, a fire set up at the camp. Why would they setup a fire? That would just makes them easier to spot through the dark sky when night comes down! What if we get killed by ninja who ambush us? Tenjin thought to himself, nervous at the idea of failure. He really didn't want to be un-successful as, he would probably be miserably unable to learn if he failed. Or worse, he could die. Dying would not be a very good thing to happen. He hadn't even accomplished much yet, nor did he have any reputation built for himself worth dying for as a shinobi, dying now would be unacceptable, even he would hate himself. As they approached the camp over a small rise, the hill behind it with a large opening in it became clear. When Tenjin got over the rise, he was able to see his team sitting around the fire, chatting. Tenjin squinted, looking for any other possibly hidden dangers surrounding the camp site. All he could see were stacks of wood and piles of stone at the camp site and several tents scattered around. Knowing the coast was clear, he ran over to the camp. Once the workers saw Tenjin, they cheered and greeted him happily. Almost instinctively, Tenjin put his finger over where is mouth would be as he was wearing a mask. Why are they being so loud? The young shinobi thought, I bet with all the noise it will attract enemies and we will get ambushed! What might happen then? I could get caught off guard, we might be helpless, and what if we all die? What if I can't protect them and fail the mission? Tenjin continued his thought, now a nervous wreck. Trying to keep those thoughts off his mind, he instructed for there to be torches placed around a large area around the perimeter and the strongest and most combat able there, take shifts patrolling several areas along with Tenjin before the mission officially begins. This process went on and continued until around 9:00 PM, when Itsuka was getting tired and lay down at his position with one other nearby awake to rest.

Later on in the night, a yell roared out through the night. "Hey! Hey! Shinobis!", yelled out a voice, blurred by the frantic movements of other members of this transport team. Soon he was up on his feet and being told something by one of the workers. "We should begin transport now. There's a problem. Someone's here! Two men were found dead and the man who killed them has not shown himself!" the man explained. Someone is here? And he already killed? Tenjin thought, Oh man I hope the cargo isn't stolen, we’ve got to start moving! Tenjin thought, now calm. He ran over to the campsite, going to check on who was still alive. There were about 9 teammates left, and thankfully, another shinobi that was assigned to lead in the mission was here. It was Raphael once again, Tenjin utilized this opportunity to pull his rival aside, and while pulling up his mask he would begin to speak. “This mission appears to have started before we got the chance to begin moving. I dont know what happened, but I honestly only trust you right now. Let’s begin to move now, and I suggest I stay with the cargo while you stray ahead whenever possible to clear the path of bandits. What do you think?” Tenjin offered this plan, because being in the last mission, he noticed that Raphael was a bit more skilled than he was, so it would be wise to have him protect the cargo from afar while Tenjin stayed close and got whoever got in reaching distance of the valuables.

Special Jounin
"Just what the hell have you been doing?" The boy shouted as he slammed his fists upon the wooden desk in front of him effectively breaking the fragile wood in half as pieces of paper that once scattered the desk filled the air between the young special jounin and the now slightly frightened special jounin that the boy was yelling at.

"I am telling you... There is nothing to investigate... Its just bad luck... There is no connection..." The man stammered out after a moment of collecting himself, it took all the young shinobi had not to begin shouting again. Raphael took a step back when he realized his fist were still clinched from striking the table, relaxing his hands the young special jounin took a deep breath trying his best to collect his thought in a way that did not cause him to have another outburst. "So its bad luck? Just random acts with no connection?" The boy paused as if waiting for an answer, yet left an obvious tone that the questions were rhetorical. "Then explain to me how it is that every transport in or out of the Kirigakure border camp has fallen under attack, explain to me why it is beginning to seem that the bandits are more coordinated than the great shinobi village, are you a complete moron?" Raphael stopped himself realizing that his voice was beginning to raise yet again, taking in a deep breath the young shinobi turned towards the exit of the tent, "you are obviously going to be no help to me. I will find someone else who will," and with that the boy exited the tent heading for the gates of the border camp, he had all the information that he was going to be able to gather from here.

The young shinobi set off with on destination in mind the Kirigakure border camp, as the deployment tent there will hopefully have more answers than Kumogakure. All of the transports were originating from different villages so it was doubtful that the saboteur would be in one of the other villages, the fact of the matter was that the only thing all of the transports had in common was their destination. Since most of the villages are not very willing to share their routes with others it would be the only place he would be able to get the information on all of the transports, he just hoped that the Kiri camp officials would be willing to share the information with him since he is not a member of their village. The boy knew his task would not be an easy one, however all he could do was hope that he made a convincing argument to get the information that he required. Raphael topped the sand dune laying his eyes once again on the large floating barge that was the Kirigakure border camp, it was hard to believe that just days before this barren land in front of the camp was a battlefield with hundreds of enemies charging at the camp. Now of course there was no sign of the struggle that happened here, the wind and sand washing away all the blood and bodies that once stained the grounds.

The hooded special jounin approached the camp slowly, even from the distance he could see the movements on the wall of the camp. It did not surprise him in the least, having just been attacked, it only made since that they would be on high alert. The boy was still a ways away from the border camp when he was set upon by a group of Anbu agents that wasted no time in surrounding the boy and cutting off any chance that he would of had to escape. "Stop right there, state your name and your business." Came a distorted voice from behind one of the masked figures that surrounded the special jounin, Raphael raised his arms into the air to show that he was not there to cause problems for them. "My name is Raphael Kozai, I am a shinobi of the hidden cloud. I have been sent here to help, it seems that all the supply lines to this camp has been compromised." The boy paused trying to judge the reactions of those surrounding him, however it was impossible with their masks hiding their faces so the boy would continue. "All the transports originate from different villages so the only common denominator is that of this base, I was hoping you would be willing to help me save some time by allowing me to look over your documents rather than traveling to all the other border camps and only getting parts of the information." The boy put his arms back to his side and waited for one of the Anbu to reply to him, however there was a long pause rather than an answer. The boy could of sworn that he had heard one of them whisper something yet he could not make out what it was that they said or which one of them said it, perhaps they had spoken into a radio and were waiting for a reply. After a few minutes one of them finally responded to his inquiry, "Alright follow us," came another distorted voice before it quickly added, "be warn you are only allowed to be where we say you are and if you even think about causing trouble it will be the last thing you do."

Once they got to through the gate of the Kirigakure border camp the Anbu lead the boy to a tent just on the inside of the gate, "do not try anything stupid, we will be waiting right here, Toru will help you with what you need." Came the distorted voice of the masked agent, as he opened the opening to the tent and making the man who was inside the tent leave as Raphael and one of the other agents went inside. Once they were alone Raphael began looking over the maps and documents that were spread throughout the tent looking for any information that he could find on what was going on. "Just what exactly are you looking for?" Came the distorted voice of the masked Anbu agent identified as Toru, "Well as I stated before I am looking into the recent transports attacks that have been happening, all the information I have gathered has lead me here. This camp is the only thing that all of the transports have had in common," "are you saying the leak is coming from us." Despite the distortion in the voice of the masked man Raphael could hear the hint of anger in it, this man obviously did not like the thought of the young shinobi accusing his camp of misconduct. "Relax I am not accusing anyone of anything yet, not till I have all the facts. I only meant that since all the transports were destined to arrive here, it seemed like I would be able to gather the most information from here. Now what do you know of the attacks?" Raphael asked as he opened up an unmarked map of the land of wind, placing markers on the locations of the different border camps of the four villages before looking at the Anbu to answer his question. After a distorted sigh the man approached the table and began marking different locations all across the map as well as lines marking some of the routes that the man knew of, "these are where we have found the looted convoys, we don't know what happened afterwords because the blasted wind blowing the sand around covers up the tracks." Raphael glared down at the map looking at it all the attacks seemed to be random, at least at first. "Who here knows the routes of the supply lines?" Raphael asked looking up from the map to see a flash of anger in the eye behind the mask of the man, "the Anbu and Hunter-Nins and then a select few of the jounin's." "Are you sure there is nobody else?" The boy asked before receiving a quick reply from the Anbu agent, "Yes I am."

After a few more hours of going over everything the boy looked up to Toru once again, "alright are you expecting any transports?" "There is one coming from Konoha, but it is not scheduled to arrive tomorrow morning." A frown quickly formed on the boy's face, "what route are they taking?" The agent did not answer right away, no doubt weary of telling an outsider, "listen I am trying to help, but if you don't tell me there will be nothing that I can do." The boy stated as he tried to press for the information, "its a new route only certain shinobi know the route, so it is unlikely that they will be found." the man stated as he pointed at the map, "they have shinobi protectors from both Konoha and us as well as two of our hunter-nins. If the bandits try to attack they will be in for a surprise." The man finished sounding sure of himself, the boy however was not convinced. If this was the work of a spy he had no doubt that they would indeed meet with an attack, and if there was a spy then there would be no surprise. "Alright I need to get a move on it, there is only a few hours left till sunset and I need to get there before its too late." Raphael said as he pulled the hood of his cloak back over his head and headed for the exit of the tent. "Just hang on what do you mean you have to go, I am not comfortable with you just leaving with this information. How do I know your not working with the enemy." The Anbu stated moving in front of the boy and blocking him from leaving, "your joking right? Are you seriously asking me this now?" The boy asked trying to fight the urge to smile, "look I am not an idiot. I know that the only reason I am even in this tent is because your boss said to let me in, now please let me do my job and go help the convoy." The man stood his ground for a moment before finally conceded and allowed the boy to pass.

By the time Raphael made it to the convoy the sun was already beginning to set, once he explained the situation to the head of the convoy he was allowed to join the troupe. He surveyed the shinobi that he would be working with, the masked man that had helped him transport the refugees a few weeks before. Seems the man was providing services himself, Raphael would not say a word to anyone save for the jounin in charge as he was not sure who he could trust, any one of these shinobi could be a spy.

The next few hours seemed to drag by, the young special jounin did not see any suspicious activity from the group. That all changed in a matter of seconds, Raphael had just finished his patrol of the area and had gone to check in with the Jounin when he heard the alarm. Arriving on the scene in a matter of seconds the young special jounin found two men with the throats sliced, they each bore a kirigakure hitai-ate, Raphael could only assume that these were the hunter-nin the Anbu told him of back at the camp. Why attack them? The boy thought to himself as well as who, quickly activating his wind sense at maximum range to try and find who attacked them but he could not pinpoint anyone. When the man in the mask revealed himself to be Tenjin the young shinobi did not know how to feel about the situation, it had been a year since they had seen each other and although they left on good terms a lot could change in a year. Was this the same shinobi that he had befriended a year ago, or has something changed within this man. Raphael just could not be sure if Tenjin was still the trustworthy shinobi he had met at the chuunin exams, but he would raise those questions later for now he had a point they needed to get a move on it. With his wind sense active the boy would be alerted should anything happened so he agreed to Tenjin's plan with a simple nod before moving out, it did not take long for the jounin to get everyone on the move Tenjin and four others near the convoy while Raphael and the others spread further out to provide a perimeter as they moved. The jounin stayed with the front cart, giving orders over the wireless radios making sure everyone stayed in contact should something happen. From Raphael's position with his wind sense he would be alerted of any movement that came within his range, the only downside was with all the movement from the convoy and the shinobi moving around to protect it, it would not be easy to differentiate between enemy movement and allied movement if there is an attack. Of course there is nothing to say there would be a difference between allied or enemy as the boy was still unsure it he truly had allies on this mission or if they were all enemies, but the moments to come would reveal it all.

Raphael sensed an approach of five coming in a position to cut off the front of the convoy blocking it's path, "we got some movement coming from the south, moving to intercept." The young special jounin stated into the radio as he dashed off to intercept the attack, there was more chatter on the radio however the boy did not hear what it said for in his dash to intercept the group of five his ear piece fell out of his ear and the boy did not waste time on trying to find it.

Tenjin

Chuunin
Tenjin assisted in the transport of the cargo and the mission itself despite the killings earlier, was actually looking a little generally dull, lost in his thoughts as he surveyed the area in front of him, Tenjin wondered what he was doing here. Seriously, What was he truly doing here in Sunagakure no sato? Surely Ishigakure no sato hadn't sent him to a foreign country just to be a messenger of peace. He had a sneaking suspicion that something major was going down soon, but with no ally in this land except Raphael, whom is from Kumogakure no sato and thus should not be considered all that trustworthy in all honesty, but still Tenjin believes in this shinobi to do the right thing. After all, would anyone trust a shinobi who who would live and die to defend a Raikage who takes in a world class criminal and plans on warring with other states for the sake of conquerings sake? No, I didn't really think so either.

Tenjin then noticed something funny, Raphael mentioned people coming ahead and dashed forward. Dropping his headset, Tenjin decided to utilize his seismic wave sensing. Taking off his glove, he laid a finger on the ground. Tenjin, using his direct contact with the earth, was able to utilize his now signature sensing technique. Tenjin was able to feel the five targets as they stepped on the earth. It generated a seismic wave which radiated away from their point of origin, like waves in a pond. But, because the waves also travel downwards through the earth, underground techniques are also detectable, and Tenjin detected many disturbances in a diamond formation underneath the ground with the cargo at its center.

The battle suddenly began as they army came out of the ground, funny thing was, nobody was coming at him as there was just a large clump of people in the middle just beating each other within an inch of the cargo, oblivious to the shinobi that stood guard. He honestly thought about how to best handle the situation and had absolutely no interruptions, but as soon as he finished his train of thought, somebody just had to come after him. The bandits are reckless, they should not be interfering with shinobi affairs. Obviously this random man went flying away with a kick to the face, although not as far as Tenjin would have liked to send him. Oh well, he hadn’t really trained his strength much, so it didn’t bother him all that much. Of course this process soon had to repeat itself, so he was soon surrounded partially by many angry men. Sadly he couldn’t really keep up with such a large number so...time to take out the big guns. Tenjin utilized the repulsion technique, the entire crowd was blasted away and now lay dazed on the ground. By expelling a great amount of chakra from his body, Tenjin produced a strong repulsive force, great enough to break bones with concussive force and push the targets, to a distance.

Most of the bandits around the cargo turned their sights on the young chunin. As they ran towards him Tenjin substituted away to the back of the crowd with a poof of smoke. Taking advantage of the substitution technique, the age-old skill which enables the user to evade the effects of an attack by switching with an item in the area. Activating this jutsu, Tenjin moved at untraceable speeds for just a moment, as the item simultaneously does so as well to take the user's place. Nothing but a flickering after image was left behind for a second, which, when damaged, released the chakra which held it in place in a small smoke cloud, revealing the nature of the technique and the item Tenjin had switched with. This technique causes Tenjin to move at speeds untraceable to human perception, and using the general confusion of his disappearance, Tenjin was able to focus an abundant amount of chakra into the palm of his hand. The Rasengan is a spinning ball of chakra formed and held in the palm of the user's hand, which is only known to a handful of shinobi, and Tenjin was able to learn this technique by himself utilizing the fine tuning of chakra control that all Sencho school students are trained to some proficiency.

Running up to the nearest unsuspecting bandit, Tenjin embroiled his rasengan into the enemies chest with immense speed and power, which caused the bandit to fall back into others. Tenjin created a small orb of spinning chakra in the palm of his hand large enough to fit directly in his palm. The chakra within this technique was dense enough and spun at a high enough velocity to drill itself into the opponent before detonating, potentially causing extreme internal injuries that could become potentially life-threatening quickly if not treated.

On impact, this jutsu drilled 3" into the opponent before exploding in a shock-wave that delivered severe internal bruising and organ damage in a 1/2 foot radii from the point of impact as well as breaking and fracturing bones within that radii. Like a wave the fight for the cargo intensified and Tenjin was ready to defend this armory with his life. A kick to the face here, a punch to the chest there...It wasn’t surprising that these guys had barely gotten any blows on the young chunin considering the time Tenjin dedicates to training his taijutsu. He knew he wasn’t the fastest ninja out there but he is close to the fastest chunin in Iwagakure no sato. Suddenly his train of thought was stopped by a foot flying towards his face. Around five of them came behind the first, it seems that the whirlwind of people wanted a piece of the young chunin. Suddenly, an omnidirectional Gale Palm later sent Tenjin flying into the cargo, then another substitution was used to keep Tenjin from hitting the weapon supply with too much force. Tenjin then noticed that some of the bandits apparently had weapons at their disposal, and every time they punched a person a small burst of chakra would burst forth, seemingly enhancing their blows.

Tenjin then noticed a couple of the bandits now pulling out scrolls that were previously hidden in the folds of their clothes and bringing out armor, strapping it onto themselves for yet another advantage. In total there was 3 people in front of him. 3 people who would need to be on the floor. So he would have to end this in...3 or more hits? Nope, no way was he writing that out. A quick repulsion later sent them all sprawling onto the floor like turtles, except for one who apparently was a bit smarter than the rest as he had lighter armor on and was able to stand up again rushing him. Well, that simply wouldn't do. A kick was sent towards the bandits head, followed up by many others to his stomach knocking the man over again. Well, it seems he wouldn't be getting up again as he stayed on the ground. Tenjin then looked at the cargo and decided to take it to the destination. The mission appeared too dangerous to wait for Raphael to finish up with his crowd of criminals, so Tenjin gathered up the team and began moving forward with the cargo. The team travelled at great speed in order to prevent the bandits in the back from collecting themselves and going for a second attack. Tenjin was able to arrive near the other camp and once getting within range, Tenjin body flickered toward the camp and found the camp captain to tell him the details regarding the events of the mission. “It appears as if there was a spy who set up an ambush.” Tenjin finished his report with these words, and the captain followed by saying, “Interesting, the bounty commissioner would like to hear about this.” Tenjin then left the camp and waited to see if Raphael showed up, seeing as the mission was close to failing, Tenjin simply went ahead in order to successfully complete the mission. Some shinobi would frown upon a ninja who would leave his comrades behind for the sake of the success of the mission, but Tenjin is a true shinobi and his mission always take priority over personal ties as it is all for the greater good of the village. Tenjin didnt notice Raphael come back, and considering how busy these time have been, Tenjin didnt have the time to wait any longer. Tenjin dispersed from the camp and began to head toward the mission border camp in order to get another mission. Tenjin wasnt trying to rest with so much left to do, and in order to complete these missions in an efficient manner, Tenjin needs to work day and night on something new. Tenjin darted out into the night and was able to get to his mission camp in time to have an order to accomplish operation 333.
