Genin
Mission name: Far from the Tree.
Mission rank: C.
Objective: Protect the groves!
Location: Deep Forest.
Reward: 300 Ryo +2 EP.
Mission Description: The Sarutobi have somehow pushed the high brass of the summoning monkeys off-kilter in their clan leader's absence, leading relations to be less than amicable. The primates need a lesson on unacceptable behavior, or the orchard will be ruined! Yakiniku Q is spreading flyers to end the apes' rage and protect their precious smoking wood.
Mission Details: This faction of summon-monkeys only travel in ninja-like squads to avoid detection, and thus you'll likely only encounter three or four at a time. These monkeys are Taijutsu masters, adept in physical combat with two stats each of C-3 and C-2, but are universally a bit dull, with Perception of D-2.  They all have access to the standard Katon libraries for ninjutsu, as well as being proficient users of the Transformation Technique, which they use to ambush those they detect coming after them.

Being rather single-minded, blunt, and obviously peeved, these primates won't cool off until defeated in battle. They are no splinter group, so even if you defeat this batch it's unlikely the arbor-arson in the area will cease....Nonetheless, turning them over to the Sarutobi clan's acting head is a requirement for mission completion. Additionally, you can fail this mission by injudiciously using techniques that burn or otherwise destroy the wood beyond use for smoking. (While no collateral damage whatsoever is appreciated, cutting techniques at least make it easier on the laborers.)

If there was anything that Joe couldn't handle right now, it was a new mission. On top of the constant anxiety of exams, on top of the match with Yoh that had shaken him to his very core, on top of the anxiety attacks that were crippling him in the midst of this identity crisis- he was being asked to go through with a C-rank mission to help the Sarutobi clan. When he had been approached with the order, the Genin was initially hesitant about accepting to say the least. He wasn't in the right state of mind to be doing anything right now, heck, if he talked to a doctor he probably would've been told to withdraw from the tournament. He couldn't help it, he felt mentally scarred after his fight in the second round. What was he even fighting for anymore? He kept asking himself that question. Of course he nodded and accepted the task, he was still a shinobi, and if he couldn't perform under distress both physical and mental, he should've hung up his headband right then and there. Maybe some self-inflicted tough love would shake him out of this funk, and there was no better way of doing that then taking on a frustrating task like this.

He was dressed in his normal clothing, a black and red top along with flowing, baggy, black pants. Hey, he didn't do much to change up his appearance, that cost money- something he certainly didn't have! Insted, the average Joe just walked down the streets of Konohagakure without trying to stand out too much. The third rounds were coming, and with them, the inevitable swarm of ravenous people all trying to place increasingly high wagers on who might win the whole thing. It sort of made him a bit bitter in a way. Wasn't the point of these exams to prove that they could handle the challenges to become a Chunin? Instead, this whole thing had developed into a tournament with little to separate it from the underground brawling of unrefined thugs. The realization made the words of the Ronin Senju feel all the more real as they haunted him. 'Fighting for a flag', that's what he said Joe was doing, just a piece of cloth waving in the wind. Konohagakure was his home, he wanted to protect it, but somewhere deep inside of him, he knew that he had to find a deeper reason than that. He had told Yoh that he fought because he must- that he was afraid what would happen if he stopped... Kami help him, who was he anymore?

He finally reached the location of the mission. The entrance to the deep forests of the Sarutobi family estate. It was a large stretch of land that went on well into the foothills of the outskirts of the village. Joe had never really known much about them save for their skill with all forms of jutsu. He stopped, turning around at the large red Torii gate that marked the archway into the family-owned lands. He briefly glanced over the paper, he hadn't been told who his partner was meant to be, only that they'd be here soon... Joe steeled his nerves, attempting to put on a fake smile and a friendly demeanor, he wanted to do this mission and do it right.

As a way to pass the time and keep his skills sharp between matches, he signed up for a mission to pass the time. He had seen the flyers up on the mission board so he figured he would take it upon himself to go ahead and complete it and get some extra cash. The mission seemed simple enough, all he needed to do was round up some monkeys and protect the grove for the Sarutobi clan. Given he already had most of his gear on him due to the exams going on, he was well prepared for tacking on a few monkeys. He was clad in in his normal attire with his brown blanket draped across his shoulders and his bow slung across his back. He wore his brand new gauntlets which he had yet to test out in actual combat yet so this would be a good test for them. Fighting head on wasn't necessarily his strong suit so maybe this would be the perfect opportunity to get better at close quarters combat before his next match. It was a skill he had always wished he had to supplement his skill at ranged combat with his bow. He gave S'Yan, who was perched upon his shoulder, the run down of what they would be doing. S'Yan let out a small scretch in acknowledgement of their objectives. The two had grown quite close in a short amount of time, likely due to N'Jobu's affinity for insects but the two surely got along quite well even though S'Yan liked to munch on his Kikaichū from time to time.

N'Jobu and S'Yan made their way towards the the Sarutobi estate where the groves were located so that he could start the mission. He had never been to the Sarutobi estate before so it would be an interesting change of pace. Before he knew it, he had stumbled upon the entrance which was adorned with a large red gate with someone waiting by it. It was a male shinobi dressed in a black and red top with baggy black pants with a seemingly forced smile adorning his face. "Hey,...name is N'Jobu. You here to do this mission about the monkeys too I suppose?" He would wait a few moments for the other shinobi to respond and if he too was to be joining he would ask if he knew anything about the situation at hand since the boy had clearly arrived earlier than he did.

Genin
Footsteps alerted the Genin to the approaching stranger. He turned to see the face of his new partner for this mission. Caramel skin and black braided hair greeted the boy, as did the modest cloak that was draped over the shinobi's torso. He introduced himself as N'Jobu, he looked around Joe's age though the latter couldn't remember if he'd ever seen him at the academy or not. Still, the casual way in which the other boy approached him did enough to cause the forced smile on Joe's face to cease to a more calm and thoughtful expression. This was an unusual assignment at an even more unusual time, they'd do what they could to make the most out of things for now. "I'm Joe... Yoshihiro Joe" the boy replied, slowly stretching out his hand for the other Genin to shake. "I'm here for the monkey's too, yeah" he added, looking through the nearby gate into the forest groves where the rampant primates were running wild. "They're tough apparently. Definitely scary when it comes to Taijutsu- not too smart beyond that though. What kind of a jutsu kit are you packing?" the teen asked, looking back to N'Jobu briefly before beginning to walk into the forest grove of the Sarutobi estate.

The walk through the forest would be rather short, all things considered. It was more of a large-scale garden and grove than anything else. The trees were all arranged in organized rows that seemed indistinguishable from one another, all to allow the harvesting of the smoking wood to be easier. "How are the exams going for you so far?" Joe would asked, looking over his shoulder to the other Genin, assuming that he was competing as well. He hadn't had the opportunity to talk much with any other competitors outside of matches, he had neither had the free time nor the heart to do so until now. Of course he remained anxious, but hearing if others felt a similar way might go some small way to help him alleviate his fears. Their talk would remain short, for it wouldn't take long for them to reach the center of the grove where a ruckus could be heard emanating from. Joe looked ahead of him at the clearing of trees that was awaiting them, his brow furrowing as he saw the sight of the vagrants in question.

There were for monkeys in total, each with varying degrees of brown or tan fur that covered them head to toe. Each wore some basic ninja gear, opting to wear smaller-scaled forehead protectors around the waist. The biggest amongst them wore what looked like a form of heavy armor meant for a primate. It wore black sunglasses and squatted atop a red shinto shrine, "Alright boys, say goodbye to bannanas and hello to our new business-" the gruff monkey stated, holding the object in question up for his goons to see, "-Cigars" he announced, causing the monkeys hovering around him to holler and chirp in support of their group's big boss man. "Back with the Sarutobi boys we couldn't of made it big. But now, with all this good stuff, we'll be rollin' in the dough faster than you can say ponzi scheme" the monkey said, sitting down on top of the shrine and using one of his feet to create a small flame that lit the cigar he had placed into his mouth. He puffed it contently whilst his goons egged him on, "Yeah boss, yeah!" one chimped, "First we get the human money, then we can get all the human women! Female monkeys don't have NEARLY the kinda breasts that these shinobi girls do!" the second ape agreed, followed by the third, "I wanna get so rich that I can buy the Mizukage for the night! YeaYeaYeah" the three goons jumped up and down on top of the shrine, watching their visionary mob boss smoke the cigar to realize the two humans who had intruded on them. The boss frowned as he pointed at the two with his foot.

"Hey, you two- scram! We're talkin' Monkey Business here. A couple'a no-tail chump chimps don't got annythin' to say to a couple'a upstandin' apes like us!" the boss shouted. He eyed the two over carefully, his gaze resting on N'Jobu more than Joe. "If you wanna tussle with the muscle, then I've only got THREE words for you!... Step Off!" the boss monkey stated, leaping up onto his feet, cigar still in his mouth and shades gleaming against the rays of sunshine as he chopped at the air in front of him whilst glaring at the humans. It looked like this was going to be a fight!

He waited a second for the other shinobi to respond who quickly began to speak, "I'm Joe... Yoshihiro Joe," before reaching out his hand for a friendly handshake. Not wanting to be rude, N'Jobu obliged the other shinobi by shaking his hand before retreating his arm back under his cloak.  "I'm here for the monkey's too, yeah. They're tough apparently. Definitely scary when it comes to Taijutsu- not too smart beyond that though. What kind of a jutsu kit are you packing?" the boy would continue on. "It's difficult to explain, probably easiest to show you when the time comes I suppose," he would retort hoping his fellow Leaf comrade would just trust in his abilities. It seemed to be enough as he began heading into the estate through the gates as N'Jobu followed him.

The pair would walk through the gardens which were set up in rows for ease of harvesting, making their job of finding the subjects in question a bit easier than trying to find their way in a more maze like garden. As they walked they walked the other genin asked him about his time during the chunin exams and how they were going. "They are fine. Nothing to exciting I suppose. You?" he would reply back, keeping it short and sweet as he was not the most fond of small talk. It wouldn't be long however before the sounds of the primates in question would echo through the grove in front of them, helping to find their targets. The two would sneak over to the source of the sounds, finding four monkeys in total, garbed in basic shinobi gear who all appeared to be capable of speech unlike most primates. "Alright boys, say goodbye to bannanas and hello to our new business-Cigars. Back with the Sarutobi boys we couldn't of made it big. But now, with all this good stuff, we'll be rollin' in the dough faster than you can say ponzi scheme," one of the monkey's said. They would continue on discussing what they could do when they got rich, digressing into less than savory discussions of what they would do with the Mizukage.

"What did I get myself into..." he lamented to himself as it appeared they had been discovered by the leader of the group of monkeys. "Hey, you two- scram! We're talkin' Monkey Business here. A couple'a no-tail chump chimps don't got annythin' to say to a couple'a upstandin' apes like us! If you wanna tussle with the muscle, then I've only got THREE words for you!... Step Off!," the monkey would scream. "That was only two words," he would respond back sarcastically. "I'll take the big one. Can you handle the others Joe?" he would ask of his comrade hoping to split things up and make the fight a bit easier.
