Image]
Personality:
Takashi is generally quiet and reserved, preferring to listen than to talk. He has been surrounded by teachers, mentors, advisers, and generals since he was young, and he recognized their wisdom. Takashi will speak or issue orders without hesitation if leadership is needed, though. Taught to remain calm and levelheaded under any circumstances, Takashi nearly never allows his emotions to get the better of him, which can make him seem cold at times. Combined with his seemingly endless patience, he can frustrate others who thirst for action. Takashi prefers to spend time thinking problems through, since rash decisions can cost lives in battle.

Takashi is fiercely protective of his sister, as she if the last of his family. He will even protect her from the six Ninja who saved them from the Clan's betrayal without remorse or mercy. Betrayal has become something of a paranoia for him, caused by watching everything he knew fade into blood and smoke at the hands of traitors. His sister is the only one left alive that Takashi trusts completely.

Likes:
Loyalty: This trait holds more significance to Takashi's heart than any other.
Advice/Opinions: Takashi relies on the advice of those around him in order to make informed decisions.
Meditation: It helps to clear the mind and center oneself.
Cherry Blossoms: He has always thought them beautiful, since they filled the garden where he grew up.
Swimming: What's more refreshing on a hot day?
Tea

Dislikes:
Treason: Betray Takashi's trust, and it will be nearly impossible to regain it.
Being Rushed: If Takashi isn't given time to think on his actions, he will become very uncomfortable and uncertain about them.
Boys courting his Sister: He is protective of not only her physical well-being, but her emotional as well.
Cats

Talents:
Universal Aptitude: Given his ancestral bloodline, Takashi has the ability to learn and perform any art or technique, albeit often to a lesser extent than the Clans who have perfected them.
Hand-to-Hand combat: Every ninja is skilled in this.
Kenjutsu (Swordsmanship)
Kyujutsu (Archery)
Stealth/Camouflage

Flaws:
Takashi's fear of betrayal keeps him from being able to completely rely on his allies.
He loses confidence when forced to make quick or uninformed decisions.

Hobbies:
-Training
-Meditation
-Swimming

Thick, acrid smoke burned Takashi's eyes, but the silk mask he wore over his nose and mouth helped to keep it from searing his lungs. He would have loved to move out of it, but at the moment he wasn't quite sure which direction would be best. Besides, the thick smoke kept him hidden, and allowed him a chance to think. It seemed impossible, but the final six clans, the strongest and most loyal to have served his family, had betrayed them. Really, they should have seen it coming. Clans had been defecting to Nobunaga for months now. He could also see the logic surrounding their attempted assassinations. The first clans to defect would be the most rewarded by the new Demon King, for being the most loyal. For these last six clans, the only reward they could hope for was the preservation of their power in return for giving up. They would also need something proving their loyalty beyond doubt. They had sent 'defectors' into Nobunaga's ranks before, in an attempt to get close enough to gain information, or even kill him. They would be wary of such a ploy...unless the heads of their former rulers were presented. By killing the Kunosaki, it would also prevent any dissension among their ranks by those who might have still been loyal. Takashi couldn't imagine that every last member of every clan had turned against them, but by removing the option of loyalty, the only thing left for them to do would be to serve Nobunaga. Yes, he could see the logic...but that didn't mean he agreed or approved of it.

The remote shrine was in ruins now, the holy ground tainted with blood and betrayal. From beyond the smoke, he could hear the clash of steel on steel, the occasional bangs of bombs and guns, and the cries of the wounded. After the clan leaders had argued that action was required during the meeting, that they would no longer sit and wait and hide, they enacted their betrayal.

"Get to the forest! Protect each other!"

Father's words still rang in his head. The man had planned to keep the six clan leaders and their guards occupied while his children escaped. No one could defeat twelve ninja by themselves in even combat, but their father didn't have to win. Merely survive long enough to buy the necessary time, then escape himself. If anyone was capable of that task, Takashi knew it was their father. Still, the sense that he had betrayed their father by leaving him behind was more bitter to Takashi than the smoke. Both hands tightened their grip, one on his drawn katana, the other on his twin's hand, letting her know he planned to start moving again. The sounds of combat had been growing more distant, which he could only hope meant the way would be safe.

The Princess of the Kunosaki observed the seen behind them with a cold, empty look playing across her face. The remaining clans defected. Father was fighting supposedly twelve ninja. Chaos exploded across the shrine. The smoke surrounding them a result from it. It normally should have been burning the duo's throats but both had a way to deal with it. "What will happen now.." She whispered to no one in particular.

Yuuki blinked and stared at her twin when he gripped her head. The smoke around them not really bothering her. "I know we should move, but this much chaos couldn't have happened because of Otoo-san...It's hard to accept that he might be dead or run away, but the distance between each point where the battles come from couldn't that far." She parted her kimono sleeves, the Neko-Te claws gleaming dangerously. "But maybe it's possible the six guards who came with the clan leaders defected against their masters?" She said hopefully with a small smile.

"We should go and look for them? We can't escape alone..." Yuuki grinned even wider at her twin. "I'm sure a few of the guards were female. It'd be nice to have a friend on the road." She tugged at his sleeve, wanting to go back.

"Shhh..."

Takashi hushed his twin when she whispered to herself. They might be hidden in the smoke, but noise would still be able to give away their positions. Even a whisper might be fatal. Unfortunately the smoke prevented them from being able to see each other's hand signals if they wished to communicate silently (not to mention that Takashi was using both hands at the moment)so he was forced to relent. If someone heard them, they would just deal with that when it happened. He still kept his voice to a whisper, just in case the traitors were still nearby.

"You have a point." Takashi conceded, in response to her comment about the sounds of battle they heard, and the distance it had started to take. If their father was fighting everyone, the sounds would be concentrated all in one place. Maybe his sister was right, but then again, what would they do if she was wrong? "We can't chance it. It's too dangerous. Even if some of them are still loyal, we have no way of telling which will help us, and which will try to kill us on sight."

He frowned at his sister when she spoke about the Kunoichi. He couldn't tell if she wanted some female companionship for herself, or if she wanted to play matchmaker on his behalf. He stayed still as she insistently tugged on his sleeve. He didn't know what the correct decision was, and wished he had more time to think. They wouldn't get very far without help, but they wouldn't even make it out of here if they took a traitor into confidence. With a final tug on his sleeve, he sighed.:: "Alright, fine. We go back."

Yuuki shut her mouth when her twin hushed her. She waited patiently as he though, until finally her gave into her tugging. "Alright, fine we'll go back." She smiled and was about to choose a direction, when a rush of wind blew past them. The smoke cleared and an upwards blast of wind could be seen a little distance away. "Fuma clan. The guard was female, Takashi." She started to walk towards the direction, pausing for her twin. "If we don't hurry up we'll lose her." She said softly as if to a small child.
"Even if the ninja is a traitor." She drew her own katana, the wicked steel gleaming. "Two against one will be an easy kill..." She thought about how her father was against possibly six ninja masters and losing, but shook off the thought. Otoo-san is the Kunosaki ruler for a reason. "He probably escaped..."

Kai cocked her head at the hidden ninja's response. "I suppose Fuma is known for our eyes...thank you for the praise." She still had her lapses of extreme courtesy at the wrong times. Though she focused on what to do. The ninja was of the Iga clan as the best bet. The disguise and unrivaled hiding techniques the Iga learned, made it the ultimate challenge for any Fuma. But unlike most of her clan, Kai didn't care. In her mind she could see even if both wounded, the had an advantage in number. Plus the ninja was taking care to stay hidden. If he kept out, there would be no cover.

"And I believe I asked you first. Unless you are as un-mannered as a child." An idea struck. Kai put down the arquebus and stood at a halfway distance between Takato and the forest. He rather is like a child. Enjoying games, trying to outsmart an adult. "Kage-san (Mr.Shadow)." The silver-eyes started to comb the scenery in front of her, hand on one Wakizashi. "If you want us to answer truthfully, we need some trust on your part. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a ninja for a ninja."

"And I believe I asked you first. Unless you are as un-mannered as a child." Piitaa smiled at that. "taking care is being thought as rude? its smart more like, but then this is far from a usual circumstance. i cant blame him for reacting oddly" he thought to himself. as he shifted to hide in front of Kai just as she walked forward

"If you want us to answer truthfully, we need some trust on your part. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a ninja for a ninja." "a challenge? or an invitation" he thought with some surprise. he scanned the scene once more, the Koka ninja would be useless with the Arquebus...but he is an odd Koka.

"hmm a fight with silver eyes and they seem truthful....i don't think Koka will fight but this is a clearing, i should be able to take them both with the nodachi" he reasoned to himself, he sheathed his Katana and then leaped into the clearing drawing his Nodachi field sword standing in front of her, his deep red armor on display to them, the Nodachi resting calmly on the ground, his feet side on and his torso twisted slightly away from fuma and Himawari


"well, here i am and I'm not sure if i will be please or upset if you know me, but to answer your question i am on the side of the Kunosaki twins, and i'm in the middle of my hunt, i heard your gale and thought you may have my target....i don't see them so its your turn to answer me"

he gripped his sword, making the tip of the huge blade sink into the undergrowth slightly, there was no cover here but if he lashed out he would provide a distraction so he could dive into the trees and once more becoming invisible and inaudible

Takashi narrowed his eyes against a sudden gust of wind, which lifted the veil of smoke under which they had been hiding. He glanced over towards his sister. "Fuma clan. The guard was female, Takashi." Her words confirmed his own suspicions that the wind had not been natural in origin. Still, he did not immediately follow. He was thinking, weighing the options. Unfortunately, their cover had literally been blown, and his sister seemed stubbornly set in giving chase. "If we don't hurry up, we'll lose her."

"And what makes you think it was the guard that summoned the wind?" It could just as easily have been the head of the Fuma clan. Of course, it seemed Yuuki had an answer for that as well, as she drew her katana, the twin to the one he already held. Two against one will be an easy kill..."

At last, Takashi nodded, and began to creep forward, staying low in the hopes of avoiding unwanted eyes. If the ninja was loyal, they would gain an ally. If not, they could likely kill an enemy, and better even the odds for Otoo-san if he still fought. "Stay behind me, and stay silent." Takashi commanded at last as he followed, then hopefully passed, his sister. They were commanded to protect each other, and he was not about to fail in that duty. The wind had come from the direction of the forest, and it was that way Takashi intended to go. There were obvious signs of battle passing the same way, with kunai and shuriken embedded into trees, scorch marks and small fires from bombs, as well as broken underbrush and blood as people passed by. It put him on edge, and his eyes were constantly on the prowl for danger as they moved.

Yuuki shrugged, following after her brother. As they progressed back into the forest, a battle torn area greeted them. Shuriken, kunai, fire, blood, disturbed undergrowth, and the occasional blood. A twig snapping made her dive into a nearby bush, she watched and listened for any movement before climbing back onto the "path". As the duo continued onward, voices became audible.

"But to answer your question I'm on the side of the Kunosaki twins, and I'm in the middle of my hunt...." The voice was male, another male said his allegiance was to them as well. "The Fuma ninja must have been killed then..." She whispered a bit down, but they had allies at least. As she thought about how she was wrong and what could have happened if they didn't show up as late as they were. Yuuki almost missed what she wanted to hear.

"To answer you, if the twins are still alive my allegiance is to them." She smirked and nudged Takashi a little harder then she should. But she was right for once.

"Yamahashi Piita, the Bloodsoaked." Piitaa frowned at that "if you know me so well then it means im not as good as i thought, ill have to train and remedy that when things get back to normal. move back a bit please"

there wasn't as much room as Piitaa thought which made him all the more thankful he didn't have to fight both Kai and Himawari, when they were at a far enough distance he yanked his nodachi out of the floor sending some of the undergrowth to fly a little.
the three and a half foot blade then swoops in an arc going upwards and then down onto a sheath strapped to his back


"well now that unpleasantness is over with, we all know each other, perhaps its best we get back to the hunt, do you have any idea where the twins would be?" he looked around scanning the forests "i don't see any Iga here, but i'm not sure if they might be stalking the twins"

While Piitaa is nowhere near as good at detection as any Fuma clan like Kai, but a Fuma clan could sense an Iga watching them but chances are would have no idea, Piitaa however, being an Iga himself knows what to look for and it becomes a battle of skill, all dependent on how good his target is

It was somewhat surprising to Takashi that, despite all the battle scars the forest had, there were no bodies. From the tracks he saw, he guessed both ninja had injured each other, and both had retreated to lick their wounds before fighting again, or perhaps moved to stalk easier prey. That his sister and he might be said prey did not make him feel any better. It had been some time since sounds of fighting had been anywhere nearby, though. The sound of a twig snapping had Takashi throwing his back to a tree and putting its bulk opposite of the sound's origin. Holding his breath, he waiting for any additional sounds, but there was nothing save for the blood pounding in his ears. He forced his heart to slow, his muscles to relax. At last he stepped out from his hiding place, as sure as he could be that the cause of the sound was innocent. They couldn't sit still forever.

It was while he listened for threats that he picked up the first hints of voices, though he couldn't quite make out the words until they drew closer."And I'm in the middle of my hunt." Takashi's jaw and grip both tightened at the words. Traitors, then. And, apparently, more than one. So much for outnumbering them...but surprise could still be on their side. Hunters would not expect to be hunted. He was about to sheath his Katana and draw his bow when someone else spoke. "To answer you, if the twins are still alive my allegiance is to them." So, they had arrived just in time to crash a dual between a traitor and a loyalist, it seemed. Since Takashi was looking through the underbrush, trying to get a look at those they had come across, he did not see his twin readying a rather deserved elbow. The strike made him grunt, and brought his attention, though he just rolled his eyes at the smirk she wore.

Well now that unpleasantness is over with, we all know each other, perhaps it's best we get back to the hunt, do you have any idea where the twins would be"? Takashi relaxed further. He had been wrong again, more times than his sister knew. There was no dual to take place, all those assembled had apparently professed loyalty. Not that it might be true, since one might claim loyalty to the other in order to more easily take down their guard. It was likely that the majority were true to their word, though, else the traitors would have no need for the subterfuge, and would even put themselves as greater risk by lying.

Piitaa looked to Hio with a raised brow as she spoke about trusting each other and his brow raised even more when she suddenly grabbed his hand and moved it. he looked to himawari and kept his hand out offering his trust so they could get moving again. out of the corner of his eye he saw Hio keep talking about the view below

"She saved my life when it would have been infinitely easier to end it, that's why I trust her. You I don't know shit about, you're nothing to me, the only actions you've made have been hostile, you snuck up on us until she spotted you and called you out, all of that was smart, prepared to face an enemy, and I respect it, though you see why I'm suspicious. But I won't be the one to attack first."


"I couldn't care less if you trusted her or not, I couldn't care if you trusted me or not, but Fu-...Hio san trusts me and she is right, its easier if we aren't waiting for each other to stab ourselves in the back"

as he spoke however he noticed himawari jumping off the cliff and he scowled at the cliff he grabbed his sickle and chain and too a few steps towards where the twins were but walking backwards getting ready to do a running leap mumbling to himself

"damnable Koga, ill have to keep my eye on him, it seems he wont trust the twins"

Takashi listened to the group speaking as well, then looked to his sister and nodded. Even if a traitor still lurked within the group, it was most reasonable to conclude that the majority would be friendly, and at this point, they needed help. The benefits outweighed the risks. Just as he was about to stand, though, two of those assembled went running off the edge of a cliff. Takashi mentally cursed his bad luck, that they should catch up with those who would help them, only to fall behind again. Acting quickly, lest the final one follow after, he stood from the underbrush of the forest and took a few steps closer, making no attempt to hide himself.

"Wait." He commanded. He wasn't sure how the man would react to the surprise of someone being at his back, and his muscles were tense with the possibility of having to suddenly dive out of the way if the man's first instinct was to attack, and ask questions later. It was never a good idea sneaking up on a ninja if you didn't kill them before they knew you were there. He motioned with his free hand towards his sister, urging her to keep herself hidden until he knew it would be safe. Not that he expected her to obey. It seemed to him that she was always talking to strangers.

he was about to start running when he heard a sharp "wait" Piitaa nearly leaped out of his skin having not known he was there and lashed out with his sickle clearly on pure reflex, the sickle how ever clearly missed as Takashi was clearly not in range, only someone who was going to kill him would have been close enough to be struck he looked behind, saw Takashi, saw no body and exhaled loudly

"by all the- you scared me, be lucky you weren't closer, then again should be lucky your not trying to kill me, or maybe you are" he said with a hand over his heart he gave a small chuckle to himself and then looked at the prince, evident that he wasn't familiar with the looks of the royal couple "are you here to look for the royals as well? well, if your here you must be, are you here to serve them or slay them?"

as he spoke he took a few steps back into the clearing his eyes focused on Takashi he noticed this unknown's other hand was down "whats hidden there? a weapon?" his town was more wary now his left hand on the sickle and his right hand blatantly going to his katana hilt

Yuuki smiled and was about to stand as well, but noticed two of the ninja jumped over the cliff. "There's our rotten luck." She shrugged and watched as Takashi went out into the open clearing. She was about to follow when he motioned for her to stop. At the same moment the last ninja threw his sickle, didn't touch her twin but it set her off.

She walked out of the underbrush, the katana gleaming in the moonlight. "If you harm Takashi, you'll find yourself in an unpleasant situation." Yuuki extended her arm to point the katana at the crimson-armoured ninja. Sure he was on their side, but he had attempted an attack on her brother. Then again it was rash to attack, it was instant reflex to attack someone behind you. She lowered her katana and went to stand behind her brother.

"are you here to look for the royals as well?" Yuuki shook her head at the question. "We aren't looking for them." She paused for effect. "The reason being is that we are the royals."

Turning to aim his sickle at the katana wielding girl and raised a brow at her exposed legs for a brief moment looking quite confused about her choice of wear, the threat spoken focused his attention "If you harm Takashi, you'll find yourself in an unpleasant situation." the girl seemed to pose no threat, which meant she was obviously a threat, he actually felt relieved when the girl lowered her blade

"We aren't looking for them. The reason being is that we are the royals." Piitaa's eyes went visibly wide "these two?" they looked barely older than him but he regained his composure "so i had inadvertently attacked the royal prince....so much for first impressions then
"well, I wasn't expecting that, I believe you, no one would be dumb enough to pretend to be the royals on the off chance I might help them, I apologize for attacking your kin, princess. I was acting on reflex." he gave them both a polite bow before speaking again

"I have been looking for you for sometime now, I'm not sure if you know or not but i am Piitaa Yamahashi - Iga clan, the whole clan wish to serve you....the whole clan being me, the other members wish to kill you and therefore they are not Iga anymore. there are others who were with me but they jumped down the cliff because a Fuma clan ally of mine heard something....though I'm guessing you knew that"

he looked to the cliff and then back at the twins "i could jump down with one, but not both, i could also call for the Hio-san and Takato-san, that could alert others but i think i could hold them off, and if we do get attacked ill send he twins down the cliff, either way we all get together" he thought quickly to himself then went to the cliff and called out not yelling at the top of his voice, just raising it slightly knowing the Fuma's ears will pick it up

"Hio-san! come back up, I'm with the Royal twins! do you need help?"

When the sickle came hissing through the air, Takashi leaned back, even though he could tell that the chain's length wouldn't allow the deadly arc to pass anywhere close to him. Even if it had, he could have blocked the swing with his bow, which he still held in hand. His eyes narrowed at the man, though. He appreciate being attacked, even if he thought it was more a lack of control than a lack of loyalty. Had he really been a traitor, he probably wouldn't have stopped after one missed swing. His jaw tightened as Yuuki stepped out to address the crimson-clad man. Just once, couldn't she listen to him, for her own protection?

"Well, I wasn't expecting that, I believe you, no one would be dumb enough to pretend to be the royals on the off chance I might help them. I apologize for attacking your kin, princess. I was acting on reflex."

"I suggest you learn to keep more control over your reflexes. That, or improve your aim."

Kai nodded. She stepped back from the man and watched Takato begin his descent upward. However the raised voice of Yamahashi would attract attention. Especially with the patrols roaming the forest. During her think time the one they had saved had begun climbing as well. "Idiots." Kai made the nessary handsigns for a gust upwards.

Immediately in one blast the cherryblossoms scattered and floated about like confetti. The powerful upward wind mostly likely blasting the two shinobi on the cliff face higher than necessary. "There you got your wind." She landed light as a feather on her toes, but she was unsure about the other two. Maybe they landed in trees? Hopefully they were okay..

Kai shrugged and stood next to Yamahashi, bowing to the royals. "Hio Kai, Fuma Clan. Also know as Gin." She looked up eying the pair and was about to say something when a shot rang out. More were fired. "We need to go now!" A flash and shuriken came flying as well.

His vision blurred a crash of branches and him clinging to wood to keep from falling. "This, is disturbingly familiar." Takato looked down. At least this time there was ground in the immediate vicinity. He started to drop when he heard the shots start. "Maybe the high ground would be better." Takato watched them start to run through the still smouldering trees from his bomb. "Or maybe not."

Takato dropped and hurried to catch up, his lets pistoning up and down. He could have used the quick move, long loping steps that ate distance more quickly than any other human was capable of. But then again, in combat, being caught in the middle of the air tended to be a death sentence. Especially against other ninja who knew the quick move. The second he caught up to the others he spoke. "I don't this area well, do any of you know of a safe house in the area?" A movement flashed, and he moved with it, probably not the only one. He watched an arm fly, blood still spurting, and grabbed it when he recognized the ninja's face. A clansmen. This was planned. At least on his master's side. Still, he was in better shape than he was a moment ago as he took off the bracer and slid it onto his left arm. Too bad Kitaro had been a trapper, he could have used some more... "Watch out for traps! That was one of our best trappers just now!"

Piitaa ducked slightly when the shots began firing a massive grin on his face, all the chaos was exhilarating, he loved it. "Yamahashi it's your time to shine." he scanned the areas and saw a a few tree branches twitch........"branches don't twitch, more Iga clan" "keep your blades ready, the other Iga clan is here, any tree, rock or branch could be one of them" Then as if to emphasize his point he threw his sickle and chain into the twitching branch and heard a loud yell, with a tug the branch fell revealed to be a shinobi dressed like himself but a dark navy blue, the sickle dug into his shoulder, Piitaa leaped to the man and swung the heavy weight on the other end of his chain into the temple of the wounded man leaving him unconscious if not dead

"the centre of the forest is the safest place, its home to the tallest tree, if there isnt a safe house there we can make one" he whispered to the others when they had regrouped "go north then east, you'll see the biggest tree soon keep them safe and if any branches get in your way, cut them ill be there" he pointed to a pair of hunters tracks that ran parallel to the path on each side he lightly pushed Kai and the royals and then finally Himawari and Otoha.

he then proceeded to dive into the left hunter track and soon after pained yells were heard, blood began to seep from the bushes slowly getting absorbed by the earth. along the path the group would see Piitaa leap from one hunters track to the other, his katana gleaming red and his crimson robes dripping blood and a grin on his bloodied face a few minutes after a leap a scream would be heard. he wasn't killing them but wounding them enough they don't follow, of course some would die of their wounds. after a mile or so the screams seemed to die down.
"more than I thought!" he called to the party of ninjas "i cant see any fuma so thats your job Hio san, just like you probably cant see Iga quickly which is why im here"

The Heir to the Kunosaki lifted a hand to shield his eyes against the massive wind that sent a couple of shinobi flying back up the cliff. He couldn't help but cringe slightly. Summoning such a wind usually wouldn't be a problem, he guessed, but with ninja all around, he feared it might act as a beacon to their location. It was, afterall, how he and his sister had first tracked the party. Nothing to be done about it now, though. He watched as the ninja made their various landings, though his vision focused on Hio.
"Hio Kai, Fuma Clan, also known as Gin."
Takashi gave the girl an appraising look. She was pretty enough in the face, he supposed, but looked a little flat and had a deeper voice than he would have expected. Why would he be thinking about such things at such a time? In truth, it took a fraction of a second, and men just notice such things. "I am Takashi Kunosaki, and this is my twin sister, Yuuki." He motioned towards the white haired woman, as if they wouldn't know who he meant. Had any of the men looked at her though, he would have stared daggers at them. Unfortunately, before further conversation could be had, a shot rang out, blowing splinters from a tree just beyond them. Takashi immediately spun, nocking an arrow to his bow from a quiver at his waist. In a single fluid motion, he drew and fired into the trees behind them, immediately nocking another arrow as more shots could be heard. Apparently at least one of the Masters had brought more than the single guard allowed. Their treachery seemed to know no bounds. It did seem like a backhanded sort of compliment, though, that they had felt a venerable army of ninja were required to kill the Kunosaki. He fired again as Gin-san shouted for them to flee. He ducked for cover behind a tree as a shuriken came flying for him.

Where could they go? To one side was the enemy, and to the other, the cliff. Yes, they could descend, but would be easy targets for sharpshooters on the ridge of the cliff once they landed. He looked for Yuuki, to ensure she was alright. A gust of wind from Gin-san blew the enemy's attacks back, and gave them a chance to bolt from cover. Takashi urged Yuuki to run ahead of him, so his body would block any projectiles from her while they ran, the other ninja seeming to carve a path through the forest for them. He tried to think about possible safe houses to use, but he couldn't think and run at the same time. He hated it. If only he had the time, he might be able to figure all this out.
