    "Careful with the girl," Amon advises as the wounded are collected and made to rest in futons. "The poison will wear off in a couple of hours if left to its own devices."

    As Mako gets up to leave, Amon stands up for just a moment, reaching around her bag to produce one of her busines cards. The image of her office flashes through her mind with that same odd thought as she spots the address, but thrusts teh card towards Mako all the same. "Mako." She nods. "Where to find me. If you're going to take off to look for Koji now, I don't imagine I would have an easy time convincing you to rest first, so I won't bother - unless you'd already made your decision to the contrary. Although if you two are taking off already, give the girl my condolences. As freaked out as I was when she was like that, it can't be easy to not have a grip on who you are, to be that dangerous..."

    ...

    When asked of news of his grand daughter, Amon grumbles, having just slouched down again. "Depends... there were a lot of people in that fight. The girl over there I thought to take prisoner for questioning - she's our only lead as between our injuries and exhaustion we sustained as a whole, we can hardly afford to approach another group of ninja." Amon stands, stumbling a bit as she goes over to the injured, indicating for Sonada to come with her. "Before I give my full report there's some things I must confirm," she asks, preparing to question him. "How many Garou would you say attacked your village? And, also importantly - and I know with the boy's injuries this will be challenging on many levels, but - can you identify these two?" she asks indicating to the Garou and their rescued prisoner.

    Yousuke bows respectfully when the old man approaches them and fixes Sonada a pointed gaze. "It was a pleasure serving you, however I cannot say with utmost certainty that we have eradicated the entirety of Garou. We located their camp and eliminated the immediate Garou threat but a small handful managed to get away. To slink back to their Princess no doubt." Remembering the first Garou they had encountered he says, "According to one Garou we interrogated, the only Tsume they knew of was a girl who they had recently inducted into their clan. Whether or not this is the Tsume you know I cannot say for certain."

    Mako

    The young girl takes the card, but has no need of it. As Amon would know: Any foreign ninja would not be allowed access to Soragakure unless it was on official ninja village business. And with her team the way it is, any official business with Soragakure wouldn't be done through genin. After all, if the Sky betrayed the Leaf then they would gain the Sharingan and the Byakugan without any real work on their part. Nonetheless, the Hyuuga girl bows slightly when she takes the card. She doesn't have one of her own, but does remark on the possibility of Amon ever going to Konohagakure. "I would return this gesture with a card of my own, but I do not carry them. However, my name should be sufficient for you to find my residence. And I do not entertain any ideas that Koji would like to see me, or that I could find him easily with my reserves of energy as depleted as they are."

    When Amon talks about Jun her words are met with a blank stare from Mako. She didn't have anything to say on the matter, but whether she held her words out of compassion or pettiness remains to be seen.

    DM

    Sonada frowns greatly when Amon mentions the the fighting. His mind has already leaped to the worst possible conclusion. When Amon points out the injured girl then he goes over to look her over. His eyes close, and his heart sinks as he affirms the girl's identity. "T-This isn't Tsume." But the man's daughter places her hand on his own, then points to the girl's face.

    "Father, look closer. Is that...?"

    He kneels down and looks very closely at the young lady. His eyes widen in surprise as he exclaims. "B-But! This is Matsumoto's daughter. This is Matsumoto Namiko. But... She was only kidnapped this morning. Why is she hurt? What happened?"

    When questioned about what had happened this morning, the old man responds plainly. "There were six of them. Three men, two women, and one young girl. That girl couldn't have been much older than yourself, but the adults deferred to her in everything. They spoke in Lightning dialect, and we couldn't understand any of it."

    Amon nods to Mako as she goes

    "Their princess..." Amon frowns in thought. Noting Sonada's despair, it hits her heavy and she warns him a little shakily. "My analysis of the situation is rather grim, I am afraid. If your heart cannot take it, you are free to leave at any time, I can have a report into you shortly..."

    "I theorise the Garou have a means of forceful induction. We have not met even a single adult among them thus far. Most oddly though, every last one of them, including this girl, had clear, advanced training in the use of ninja abilities - enough to rival each individual member of my team. Some 20 Garou have been encountered today and this is the only one I could drag back here alive the rest fleeing or... They were not themselves - they were willing to slit their own throats rather than come back with us. Some sort of effect on the soul then...this is all conjecture of course. I can only hope to analyse their methods here" Amon turns to Ueki. "Could you bring this girl's relatives here? One with the strongest heart may do best. I shall await your return if you can send for them"

    Amon grabs the prisoner, finding a chair to prop her up on. "Yousuke, I'm going to revive her so we can speak in a minute. Have your bade poised to her - she might try somethng very harmful and stupid when she wakes up."

    She turns back towards Sonada. "I'm sorry i only bring the worst of news... I can't apologise more for not being more knowledgeable, for being faster in responding and stronger in dealing with our threats. To call our mission a success would only be in the slimmest possible way in that I have doubts the Garou would return, but with all they've robbed of you, the village's children... Whatever has been done to them, i just hope it can be undone. If not then.. there was nothing we could have done in the first place."

    The old man nods his head, then motions for his daughter to leave. Ueki moves to fetch the Matsumoto family. After a few moments she turns with a sweat-streaked and dirty older man. The man looks down at the girl, starts to tear up, and nods. "T-that's my baby alright." He falls to his knees and hugs the girl if allowed to. "W-where did you find her?"

    "In the woods," Amon says simply. Amon allows him to hug her, confident whe was out cold. However, she eventually indicates to him to give her a wide berth, producing a med kit. She looks at the girl, finally deciding to try reviving her as she speaks - making sur ethe bonding on her feet and hands is well secure - she wouldn't be performing even one-handed sealw ith that binding. "Yousuke, cover me, like I said..."

    As she does so, she solemnly informs teh newcomer. "This person is a ninjutsu specialist who violently accosted us and the konoha team as part of the Garou, all of whom looked like children. The Garou, like all ninja, will have a number of ways to take the form of another, in one way or another... So this may not be your daughter. Let us find out. Stand back for now, okay? Let's see, if I dab this here and apply this generic antidote..."

    Once Yousuke has her 'secure' (as in, ready to strike in some way if she does something destructive, so hostage maneuvre I guess) and the civilian and injured are a good 30 feet back, she restores the Garou-nin.

    I take 10 on treat injury to revive her from the poison if allowed, so I hit DC 17

    Nodding grimly, Yousuke draws closer and levels his blade at the girl before scoffing at Amon's statement, "They are 'specialists' in that it is all they are capable of. Each Garou we have encountered thus far has had specifically one mode of attack, and even then the 'ninjutsu specialists' were unable to use more than one or two jutsu at a time before they exhausted their pitifully small stores of chakra. The Garou are not creating ninja, they are simply turning civilians into their mindless fodder."

    "Indeed... almost like automaton," Amon nods at Yousuke's analysis. "A properly trained-from birth ninja has more natural ability. Though that is perhaps more troubling - I could accept them enhancing the children's abilities, as with their blood sorcery infusing people with greater inherent power may be possible, but such while such enhancements were present, they seemed more filled with skill than anything else, really, at least in their specialist abilities. It is simply impossible to grant a civilian that much effective training to use such high grade techniques in only a few hours. The wind technique they used against you in that ambush, for example, is beyond the skill of all but the most exceptional genin. Therefore.." she says, addressing the girl's father more than anything else. "...this cannot be your daughter. I'm sorry you must see us deal with someone that shares her face. Though perhaps in dealing with her we might recover your daughter. Perhaps knocking her out has ended some effect... or perhaps there is no hope. I ask that you steel yourself for what is to come, for she will awake momentarily."

    She indicates lightly to Yousuke's blade, almost but not quite touching it with two outstretched fingers as she indicates for him to lower it just a little. "Try and keep the blade away from her line if vision as she first wakes up. We don't want to shock her too much, in case... actually never mind, just do what you want, though from her bonds I think the 'you are at our mercy' message comes across quite clearly" Amon stands up and away from the girl, looking down at her as she wills her to stir, observing her closely.

    Shaking his head firmly, Yousuke opines, "You are too hasty in your judgement, Yamana-san. Their use of mid-level ninjutsu does not preclude them from being civilians, in fact it may be that Garou are teaching them techniques through their strange blood sorcery. Their clan is one shrouded in mystery, wielding powers that are beyond the scope of a typical shinobi. If it is at all feasible for a clan to impart knowledge of jutsu onto a civilian, the Garou would be first among the potential suspects." Their suspicious lack of chakra also pointed to his theory. An appropriately trained ninja would have stores of chakra much greater than he had seen today, regardless of their individual stamina.

    "I believe it is too early to be making these assessments. Do not give the kind villagers false hope when there may be none."

    The girl wakes almost immediately upon Amon applying her general antidote. She slowly opens golden eyes, shakes the sleep from her mind, then looks around the room. She lashes out at Amon with her feet, but the sky-nin is too far away to kick. She growls as she visibly struggles against her bonds, but after awhile just closes her eyes and lets it go. She speaks in Lightning dialect, and seems to direct her statements toward Amon. "Bino. Pum'v wholo. Haxat pe ug waxank um vo? Birthupp vuldolols."

    She looks around once more, then looks at each of the men in the room in turn. She finally stops when she notices Yousuke's sword, and just glares at the sky-nin. "Alo ug keick te bung vo axagaxain? Faxachaxalds."

    The family members present look confused at the Garou girl. "W-what is she saying? I-I don't recognize that language, but I do know my little girl didn't know any language like that."

    Yousuke huffs at the young girl's rude language and answers the man, "She's speaking Lightning dialect. And she has quite a mouth on her to say the least..." Frustrated, Yousuke runs his hands through his hair and offers his translation, "It has been some time since my grandfather taught me but it should be enough for the purposes of the questioning."

    Translation:
    'Fine. I'm awake. What do you want with me? ****in' Bastards.'

    'Are you going to torture me again? *******s.'

    "An alien language is the least of our concerns, I'm afraid. I'll assume she also didn't possess the ability to use energy attacks the last time you saw her - it didn't stop her leaving a decent sized crater when we fought." Amon pointedly ignores her attempt to kick her, letting the girl tire herself out.

    Amon looks down at the girl, "I know the Garou I met earlier today were capable of speaking in a tongue I understood. Why should you be any different? If you are capable of speaking Japanese, I would advise against playing these games with us; I have all day." She looks to Yousuke - pleasantly surprised to hear him speak lightning before she even asks.

    Nodding at Yousuke's translation, she looks to the girl, speaking to her normally. "Do you understand what I am saying?" she asks flatly. "It hardly matters as long as Yousuke can translate I suppose. Ahem." She stands a little further back, gesturing to the room around her. "Do you know where you are?" She expects Yousuke to interpret her words for her as needed

    Amon ignores the spit itself but not the gesture. "Ah, feisty are you not?" she asks, sounding a little amused. "I was just going to say, if we were going to torture you, why would we do it in front of your family?" Amon levels a gaze at her, already knowing the answer 'that man is not my family'. She indicates to the reported father to step forward. "Stay behind me now, though don't be afraid to show your face," she instructs him.

    She explains softly to the Garou, "I won't torture you. There's nothing glamorous or acceptable about torture and I have no training in it. Why do you think I would do such a thing to you in any case, what do you mean by 'again'? The blade is simply in case you do something to harm the innocents here."

    The man steps forward, but the girl just lashes out again. Yousuke translates her words quickly and efficiently. "**** you and him! Let me go!" She doesn't seem receptive to questioning, and certainly doesn't want to talk. The man looks to Amon with a somber gaze.

    "She's clearly hurting. Please, stop this and let me take her home."

    Amon closes her eyes, thinking. "Is that her usual eye colour?" she asks instinctively, stalling. "Please, allow me some further questioning. She's faced worse perils than my rope today. Plus, if her allies' response to being overwhelmed holds true in this case, then her merely running for the hills at the first opportunity is the BEST possibility."

    Opening her eyes, she sighs, looking at the girl, as she crouches. "What is your name? Was Ueki Tsume with you in that division?" She feared the answer on both accounts, but it needed to be asked.

    The father shakes his head, and shows Amon his own brown eyes. "B-Both I and her mother had brown eyes, and she carried that forward. I do not know why her eyes changed."

    The girl just growls and yells at Amon some more in response to being questioned. Things were obviously not going to work out this way at all.

    "Are there any local tales about eyes of this pigment?"

    Amon presses her forefinger and thumb to her eyes, rubbing them in frustration. "I couldn't really have expected any better, I suppose. I'm no good at this sort of thing. Here," she points a thumb towards the girl as she addresses the father. "Why don't you try and get through to her Give me a moment and we'll see if the Konoha team is at all versed in interrogation. We seem to have run into a wall here. I'm considering bringing her back to the village for further investigation "

    Letting the father have the floor for a moment, Amon backs up, going for the door where Mako and Jun left. She doesn't stray too far from the scene and does not take her eyes off the girl, all the same trusting Yousuke to act where necessary. Opening the door, she looks around for only a moment to confoirm their presence - whether they are there or not, she calls out "Are either of you two talented it all in interrogation? I could use a hand in here." With that, she lets the door close, quickly retaking her stance between the man and his daughter, though seems less determined until she catches sight of the tortured boy on her way back over...

    The locals shake their heads.

    The father's attempts at communication are rebuffed by the girl's curses, and he doesn't get any further than Amon did. When Amon brings up the possibility of bringing her back to the village, the man adamantly refuses. "I-I won't let you take my daughter away from me again. She needs to be here, with those who love her."

    Outside, Amon doesn't see hide nor hair of either Mako, Houki, or Jun. All three of them seem to have disappeared somewhere.

    "Of course not..." Amon comments as she finds the Konoha team absent. Headng back inside, she bites her lip at the father's refusal. "I shall respect your wishes for your daughter, but with her so unwilling to talk, I can't even determine if this is your daughter anymore." She pats him on the shoulder to reassure him. "You need not fear me. I am only trying to help"

    She gives a heavy sigh, every option quickly seeming like another dead end as Amon was left to think herself into a circle until she escaped. She points over to the clear as day tortured boy, glaring at the girl for her eyes to follow. Perhaps the sight of their now freed prisoner would throw her off some. "I thought the Garou didn't need the eyes, just the heart. But then, I thought the Garou weren't all children."

    Flashes of his grandfather's history lessons flash through his mind when he recognizes the state of the girl's eyes. There was indeed a bloodline capable of accomplishing such an effect according to Youki but for the a bloodline of that power to have fallen into the hands of the Garou...

    "I may have an answer to your question but I fear you may not like it..." The idea was unpalatable but it did provide the closest explanation for the strange circumstances around the villagers and their enthrallment. "Legends say that the First Sage had a bloodline capable to bending enemies to his will with but a glance. It pains me to say, but I believe the Garou have managed to get their hands on such a ruinous bloodline..."

    The girl growls and spits as she struggles against her bindings once more. Amon's questions reach nothing in her soul, and she continues to fight through them and try to harm either the sky-nin or the man who had once been her father. Whatever was done to her it is painfully obvious that any allegiances she once held are gone, potentially forever.

    Amon bites her tongue. "What will you do with her?" she asks the father. "She's dangerous - she would kill you, given the chance. And there's nothing I can do for her here... If it is truly as Yousuke says then we simply lack the power to reverse such a process... If I untie her now, she'll attack us or run to her co-... to her captors."

    She looks back at the girl. "Please... stop," she pleads. "You aren't getting any freer this way..."

    The father looks at Namiko, then back to the sky-nin. "I-Is it really impossible to save her? Truly?" If Amon answers in the affirmative, then he shakes his head and allows her to be taken away. He leaves the building, and goes back to his own home.

    "I... I don't know." Amon answers with the same vagueness she herself feels. She looks at Yousuke hopefully - he seemed to know the most. "Yousuke, perhaps if we... if we killed the bloodline user, would that change anything?" she suggests. hoping for any way around the technique.

    If such a technique is completely insurmountable then... then no one is safe. "Is it a genjutsu or something... more?"

    Yousuke shakes his head, "The only example I have comes the legend of the First Sage, meaning the particulars of his bloodline are a mystery still. The Rinnegan, could impart any knowledge the Sage deigned to gift his subjects. This includes, but is not limited to, ninjutsu and tactics. This is in addition, or perhaps even an extension of his ability to rewrite identities. He collected a great amount of followers through his bloodline, eventually creating the Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth sages as a result. They in turn, passed down the secrets of ninjutsu to the rest of the world."

    Sternly, he turns to Amon to answer her question, "I fear there is no way of knowing whether or not killing the bearer of the bloodline would release the children from the effects. However, what I do know is that the Sage's successors chose to continue his teachings even after his death. Which, I believe, is damning evidence..."

    "The First Sage operated like that...? Well, the first sage would have to be really, really powerful with his bloodline in the first place, right? Maybe whoever has it now is not nearly so proficient?" Amon suggests hopefully, slouching against the wall. "She identified me as the one who tortured her when she first opened her eyes... her sense of identities has been altered. The Garou back in the woods, Misa, said that Tsume was 'really nice', so... I think they maintain their identity, except their allegiances. Th-those kids we were fighting, whatever their power, whatever their ferocity, they were still just... just..." Her tears fro the day had left her quite dry but she cups her hand over her mouth in disgust, looking like she might throw up as she stares at the ground.

    After a while, she seems to make up her mind about something, shaking her head as she looks to the locals. "There is something I would like to check in the woods, but it will have to wait until morning. In the meantime, could you afford us a room for the night? There's something I think you must see, but with my team as it is now we are incapable of escorting even ourselves safely through these woods and back." That request filed, she stands. "I'm sorry," is all she says as she crosses the room, hoping to get away from the sorry sight of the girl. She stops as she passes by the eyeless boy. "Do you know who he is at all?"
