Kara had been thinking long and hard about what Kensai had told her in the slums the first day she’d met him in Sunagakure. About using her wealth and station to help affect positive change in the people around her. She was still somewhat on the fence about the idea, as for the most part the concept didn’t overly benefit her at all. Though she could at least see the merit in becoming a trusted member of society and being viewed as a philanthropist. Her parents did the same and it afforded them a good deal of political and social power.
With this in mind she had perused the mission boards, looking for something that might be able to prove her willingness to at least attempt to help those in need. More than she already did of course, she had set up a small clinic in her home after all. After some deliberation she picked one that involved medical supplies; even if they weren’t able to be retrieved she could at least use her skills to make up the difference. Since there were bandits involved however she had left word with both Kensai and Azuma to aid her in her endeavours; her last experience with bandits had not been a terribly pleasant experience and she had no wish to come to harm.
Dressing for the occasion was going to be a bit more difficult for her. Most of her clothing was entirely inappropriate for travelling in the desert, and most likely ill suited for a tussle with bandits. She chose a pair of loose dark green pants with large cut outs on both hips and a tight fitting dark green and gold strapless shirt with flowing panels attached to her upper arms and paired it with the only pair of flat soled footwear she owned, a gift from her father when she was a young girl; a pair of jika-tabi. Why he had thought this was an appropriate gift for his princess of a daughter she would never know, but she was finally glad to own them. She tied her hair back into a top knot, allowing the length to fall down her back, she thought her hair may end up being problematic but at least most of it was out of her face. The split toed shoes felt surprisingly good and as she stood there looking in the mirror she felt like she looked a little more like a threat and not like some helpless civilian. Perhaps the bandits would think the same.
Before she left to meet her companions at the gates, should they arrive, she saw there were two things missing that would complete her look. She grabbed her kunai from beside her bed and fashioned herself a type of sheath out of a bit of leather and tied it to the bare part of her left thigh, and took a scarf made of the same material as her clothing - dark green and gold - and tucked it into her waistband. She wavered momentarily about bringing her parasol, but it was a habit so ingrained she could not bear to leave it behind. Heading out towards the gates to the village she had a lightness in her step; she was finally on an adventure.
