Her boots stepping on the stone floor with light thuds that resonate from torchlit walls. Akeno sadly isn’t dressed in her preferred colors as she wears a grey short sleeved blouse with a maintained flak jacket over her torso. Her bag of supplies slung over her shoulder as Akeno approaches the closed heavy door. Akeno’s dark wavy hair bouncing along each step as she reaches out with her right new arm to turn the latch and open the door. Akeno seeks the Society as a whole, but really she needs to speak with Honiko specifically.
Upon opening the door Akeno is greeted with warm golden light from a nearby fireplace to combat the chilly air that was quite welcomed on her cold skin. Her liquid golden eyes wander around the room as it is a bit spacious. “Lovely home you’ve secured.” Akeno commented even though she knows that they’re only temporarily using this abandoned outpost within the mountains as a base of operations. This was essentially an office of sorts that they had secured. Turning her attention towards Honiko the Volcanic Phoenix took a moment to adjust her tone. Last she needs is for Honiko to assume her authority was being challenged, and right now Akeno welcomes any sort of helping hands from the Society that she can get.
“I have matters that i wish to discuss with you. Or rather something that i think that would benefit us as a whole and on the long run." Taking advantage of this land's position and possibly win the residents' trust the Society can use the Land of Earth as a cover front. "If we can prevent the Land of Earth from future takeovers which no doubt will happen in the future, I can see about securing one of the provinces. Preferably I can start in the Onoka Province since that is where the main source of trade and the Daimyou's seat of power." Akeno probably doesn't even have to speak of the mines they could secure some form of profit and essentially they could monitor a good part of the land. "The problem is that I need the other nations to back off from invasion. Iwagakure's resources are highly sought out and will likely draw a lot of attention. I need to make sure any attempts of invasion fails, and frankly i don't trust any of these nobles or what is left of them to be able to defend themselves much less being able to defend their resources."
