(this is PC mission, war mode is on, any kiri-nin can join. no participants in 48 hours and they're dead)

The wind howled, piling up snow in drifts, blinding the night with ice-white dust. Wraith walked bend over against the cold, protecting her eyes with her armored arms. Trees, posts, cowsheds loomed vision, then vanished, swallowed in white.

The mission was simple. Locate the convoy. Kill everyone, steal or destroy the goods. That last part was her own choice. The goods? Chakra fortified wood. The child ANBU could only guess for what those were for - either way, it would be anything that could be used against her village and more importantly, against her own sister.

The wind howled in brutal fashion like an animal trying to intimidate a threat. That threat was her. Red glowing eyes behind the hooded mask focused on movement in the distance. Chakra signatures appeared and that was when the mission had officially begun.

The wraith's shadow blurred, an attack masked by the snowstorm - a stealthy but brutal approach aimed to slaughter everyone in her sight.

There was nothing like a long, extended mission away from the village to make a shinobi yearn for home. It seemed, too, to have the same effect on monks, as Shingen found himself cursing against the bitter cold. Snowfall was lovely, but such a harsh snowstorm and knee-deep snowbanks made for an incredibly unpleasant experience that made him curse the stuff. Kiri was an often cool, even cold, and damp place. Shingen had a fondness for warmer things, but in cold like this, chilling him to the bone, he was begging to return back to the Hidden Mist.

Escorting the caravan as he was, Shingen knew that it would be a long while before his reprieve. Even when the caravan arrived at its destination and its transactions were complete, there was the shivering cold return journey after that. He and his companion could make it much more swiftly on their own, were they allowed to, but at the present they were confined to the slow pace of the caravan. The only thing that seemed to keep the monk sane was the steaming hot thermos that he held in his hands. Lines of steam dances through the harsh air as the scent of hot cocoa wafted into his nose. A single sip was enough to rejuvenate him, and he had shed tears of joy when Misumi had given it to him.

But his reprieve was to be short lived. In the howling wind any detection by sound was impossible. By sight, however, was another thing entirely. The dark cloaked figure stood out against the white snow. That fact alone stood out to Shingen - it did not seem that stealth was ever the desire. Very strange, if it were a common bandit. He had no time to cap and safely store away the thermos; he let it drop into the snow at his feet, staining the white with the lightly colored mixture.

Kicking off of his feet he leapt to the top of a large nearby snowbank, giving him a vantage point to examine the situation. His first instinct was to protect the merchants - and so he would - but he also wanted to see if there were any other assailants aside from the dark cloaked figure, but in the heavy snowstorm it seemed impossible. As he moved into action, hopping down from the snowbank to intercept the wraith, Shingen grimly accepted the possibility that there might be more than one assailant. With a burst of speed, as fast as he could muster, he moved to interpose himself between the figure and the closest merchant. His fists ready, he shifted into a stable position, his stance solid but not too low, lest he be inhibited by the snow.

Misumi initially shivered in the snow, her usual attire replaced by fur-lined layers which she had wrapped about herself in such a way as to hinder her the least. The pair of weapons hovering at her back matched the surroundings, and her clothing as well. A bloom of moisture from her breath condensing appeared in the air before her as she dragged her blue gaze across the shimmering horizon, rubbing cold hands together before they could become numb. It's freezing out here! I don't know why Mizukage-sama sent us all this way... she thought to herself, wondering exactly why the route took them through the Land of Iron. She supposed that it didn't matter, really - she would do as she was told, where it came to protecting the interests of the Mist. She couldn't understand the how's and why's of running a Hidden Village, and understood that well.

She had long since downed her own hot beverage, leaving her cup in her backpack and forgoing it as Shingen seemed to spot something. One hand resting against the grip of a katana on her left hip - one of two on that side, mirroring her right - she blinked at the space he had focused upon, then widened her eyes. That's not supposed to be there! she thought to herself, looking left and right for more potential enemies, but alas, she couldn't spot them, even when she squinted VERY hard. Certainly a single individual wouldn't be the entirety of a bandit force. The chakra-fortified wood couldn't be transported by just one person... unless they're just here to stop the shipment, and there are follow-on workers...!

She was proud of herself for having worked out a potential solution to a problem, mentally congratulating herself - but then Shingen was off, and she gave a soft gasp of surprise mixed with self-chastisement. I'm hesitating! I can't let Shin-kun go off on his own! she thought to herself while following, matching his pace to drop down next to him, her grip shifting to her katana's scabbard, right hand slipping over to hover near the hilt. She balanced atop the snow effortlessly, barely aware she was doing it as they interrupted the assault just as it was beginning. Wordless, it was now a standoff, it seemed.

The snowstorm increased in intensity both serving as an advantage as well as a disadvantage for the Uchiha ANBU. Her sights remained unaffected, chakra signatures could be seen clearly, a lot of fairly faint ones were present but there was one particularly bright signature that stood out. And it was approaching her with another weaker signature directly behind it. Detected already. For a shipment like this to be guarded by shinobi something had to give. Chakra fortified wood. Yes, it can be weaponized and commonly is, however...a single shinobi usually was enough. Whatever the case was, the ANBU figured they were perhaps guarding something more important.

The trio came to a halt - a standoff only interrupted by the loud noise of howling winds and chaotic snow. The mission was already a failure. Even if Wraith managed to kill both these shinobi, it would be known that the Kidō Butai wouldn't be capable of such feats. Leaving them alive would mean that they'd know that an ANBU from any major village had been sent to attack the caravan. Killing them would likely end up the same. The mission had already failed before it could even begin. A powerful gust of wind and vision impairing snow blew over the battlefield - and with it, their adversary was gone.
