Years had passed since he had been seen within the daylight. The rays of sunlight that broke through the clouds to touch his skin felt foreign. For years he had been engulfed in the darkness of Konoha. Every move and action that had occurred was one that he had not acted on. The growing suspicions that surrounded the Uchiha Clan, as well as those who had committed treason, were known to him. There was no escaping his prying eyes. So long as Konoha—no—so long as the Land of Fire existed, there was not a thing that went on without being reported to him. His crimson gaze shifted lazily to the side as his right hand came forth, palm outstretched. Closing it and opening it allowed for him to realize that this was reality. The light did exist, but the darkness which comforted him was his true habitat. Once one took on the duties that he did as a major leader within the nation, the light was quickly sealed away. As long as Itsuki Uchiha existed, justice would come upon those crooked enough to defy the nation. Far too much had been let go while he maintained the peace from the shadows. The disappearance of Owatasumi could not have happened at a worse time. This made him far busier than he would have been.
“Barely…” The words slipped from his mouth as he gritted his teeth.
The half-breed was referencing Mowa Sozo. In his eyes, Mowa was a suitable choice as Hokage but had allowed many atrocities against the nation to occur. This made him unfit to be within his role. Yet again, the need for adjudication had risen. And yet again, Itsuki had to rise to the task. A sigh came from his mouth as his hand dropped back to his side after his index and middle finger came forward, signaling something. Within the same instant, his hand had fallen from this signal, he was surrounded by a diverse force of FIA Troops, Root Anbu, and personal guards from the task force he had created during his current tenure as the Fire Magistrate. His role was one that had been crafted out of necessity. Unfortunately, he would need to fulfill his duties yet again. So long as idiocy existed, so did those that indulged in it. Like gluttons for punishment, those who would dare degrade the name of Konoha had risen into places that they shouldn’t have. Naturally, it was time to show one of the cards he had in play.
Lips parted to allow a serene tone to come forth: ” Those of you with the FIA… surround the Uchiha district and make it discreet. Blend in with the Clan members and do not worry them. Simply wait for my command and further instructors from your scrolls and other encrypted transmissions. Disperse.”
A flick of his wrist allowed for two people to disappear from his circle, while hundreds of FIA agents would plant themselves within the Uchiha district with ease. Conversations about Yozu Uchiha and other prominent figures would begin to ruminate, reigniting flames that hadn’t quite burned out yet.
” Root, you are to surround the Hokage’s office and await his arrival. If they ask, you shall invoke my name and not be met with any kind of resistance. Before resorting to violence, you shall ask Mowa Sozo to come quietly with you. Should he resist, you shall simply let me know and I will subdue him if need be. There will be absolutely no violence. If he is unwilling to turn himself in without inquiry, you need only say the word and he shall submit. Disperse.”
Another wave of his wrist came, forcing the Root members from his circle to go forth along with a dozen more members, totaling fourteen. Mowa Sozo would be none the wiser upon his return, as these Anbu would replace those on duty that resided in the Hokage’s building.
Mouth ajar yet again, his serene tone came forth: ” Sūkikyō: (Lit.枢機卿;”Cardinals”), you all are to arrest Yozu Uchiha for high treason and her crimes against Konoha. Should she resist, do not hesitate to subdue her. Lethal force is authorized, but do not kill her. In the event that you need me, simply say the word. Although, I’m certain with those weapons, you won’t be needing much support. Disperse.”
For the last time, a group departs, clearing him of his small gathering. A sigh of relief washes over him for but a moment as he presses forward, allowing the light to embrace the entirety of his body. Behind the Uchiha appears to be another figure. Upon closer inspection, it is a shadow clone of Itsuki that will remain posted within the FIA command center. At each major governmental building affiliated with Itsuki is a loyal soldier awaiting his word. The Sūkikyō that have left to confront Yozu Uchiha are in a two-man cell. This speaks volumes, given the potential of the woman. Only a fool would believe that the man had underestimated her and only a fool would underestimate the Sūkikyō. Within the same instant that his body is embraced by the light, he is nowhere to be seen. His clone remains within the FIA command center, while he himself has materialized on the outskirts of the Uchiha Clan district, accompanied by what appears to be the news station. Those who see the man are well aware of his position and continued success as Fire Magistrate. The less you see of a man like Itsuki, the better. It means that his job is going smoothly. Sadly, it was only a matter of time before he had to act again, putting an end to the madness that was allowed to become commonplace. Elders of the Uchiha Clan as well as a plethora of clan members surround the man as he has taken up the center of a small stage while being broadcasted across important networks within Konoha.
” Hello, my Uchiha brethren and the Land of Fire.” He starts slow, yet strong. There is a level of confidence in his demeanor and words that is rather charming.
” You all know me as Itsuki Uchiha, the Fire Magistrate. My job is to ensure the prosperity of this nation as well as the health of those within it.” Thus far his words are true, there’s a certain allure that accompanies them. His single orb goes back and forth, looking over the crowd and reflecting off of the equipment time and time again. ” It has come to my attention that the Uchiha Clan has been neglected far too long under the former rule of Yozu Uchiha.” Why former? Has something happened? No, not quite, but he’s getting to that. His confidence begins to spread throughout the crowd and those around as they become enthused and drawn in by his words and gaze. ” As of today, I will be leading this nation not only as the Fire Magistrate but as the formal Lord of the Uchiha Clan.”
A wealthy round of applause comes from those within the crowd, as well as those watching with connections and Uchiha Lineage. A strong leader has long since been lacking, and his announcement comes as no surprise given the loose grip that Yozu Uchiha, who is now a criminal, once held. The elders of the clan are well aware of the situation and have no choice but to clap as well, they aren’t very displeased with this by any means, either. For the first time in history, Itsuki Uchiha’s vibrant smile has been recorded on live television and shown to those around him. Its warmth is so charming that it threatens to swindle those who peer at it. Yes, it is a rare sight, but a welcome one. Itsuki Uchiha has declared himself the Uchiha Lord and does not require the support of anyone, especially since his actions speak for themselves. The media is under his complete control and censorship will be dispensed as it is needed. There would be no resistance, and he was certain of this. Anywho opposed him would be allowed to voice their opinion, but nothing would change. Should one choose violence, they would be apprehended and tried for high treason. Now was not the time for those lacking power to voice their opposition.
In the midst of the country, though the action of Itsuki Uchiha may have been executed in the right way it could end in an opposing result for Itsuki, though... It was clear that the man was able to detect a sudden shift in the country as he didn't let up even a single moment slipped through his hand but could he do this? Of course, it was possible due to the careful procedures devised by both the Nine-Tails and the Jinchuriki in place as a response to the invasion of Madoguchi, including the increase in the patrol as well as his own personal ANBU squad operating in the background, ensuring to keep track of information this included the movement of Itsuki. First, it was clear that their movement was discovered by the patrols tasked in secret to detect suspicious motion in the village, this includes those in the Uchiha compound considering that they were positioned around even the most vital areas of the Leaf City. It was foolish to assume he wouldn't be aware of the unfoldings in the Uchiha District causing such distrust between them and Leaf City, perhaps due to both efforts of Yozu Uchiha and Ketsugo Uzumaki. Yet he hasn't made an action toward it, could be that he was too busy to deal with it? Of course not he was just getting used to everything in the seat of the sitting Hokage, though he was hoping that it would be sorted by the barrier which was noted to act in passive. Originally the Jinchuriki had it activated in order to avert even the likes of Naraku Uchiha and those associated with him out, but it can work in one's favor as it even reduced the negative thought and emotions in others. This is what he was counting on, without causing a potential civil war the Uchiha themselves would be pacified and without a reason to protest. Second. It was clear that he didn't ignore the fact that the Judge had attempted to use a genjutsu upon the crowd as well as... perhaps the citizens of Land of Fire?
Such a blatant method the Judge had chosen in the darkness—was he seeking to break the very rules Hashirama Senju as well as Heiwa improved upon? Despite the fact that his own job was to make sure there was balance... but would it be a true balance if he just decided to take it into his own hands and place numerous under a genjutsu, not only robbing one's of their free will it would be against the very core of what justice is? At the same second as the attempt, the Taiwa Scrolls notifies and arranges to break them out of his 'alluring' attempt it was possible as it is able to act as a medium for those to perform the Genjutsu Dissipation (幻術解) to break each one of them that fell into the Judge's trick, more than once. And even then he was making sure to use the chakra of the Nine-Tailswithin him to unite with its other half in order to break each individual out of a genjutsu if there was any lying in them it is possible as its chakra is what authorizes the barrier encompassing the city and with the pinpoint of the Taiwa Scroll this would disrupt even the chakra flow in many without interrupting their daily life and then the fragments endured in them would be redirected into the barriers back to its origin leaving no trace of the Nine-Tails behind in the inhabitants.
Like a green glimmer in the air, the Hokage emerged from the Taiwa Scroll on one of the Shinobi, not only accosting Itsuki he was able to take the attention from the media no matter how much one could edit or change... he was taking the scene for himself as a star, where his face often appears on commercials and television. If one looked in the street, one could see a poster depicting Mowa holding a brand advertising though this was before he succeeded his older brother as the Sitting Hokage had it occurred to him he didn't have a public inauguration party but it was clear that he didn't felt right to hold one in the week as their beloved Heiwa perishes. He was able to grab the mic from the reporter, by force he was able to greet them with a smile. It is made clear that he is one of the three clones that was positioned by Mowa Sozo, dividing the chakra power by four still the chakra in the clone was considered impressive for a monster. "You might've wondered why it had happened." He murmured as he closed his eyes, not only interrupting the speech he approached Itsuki and stood next to him, though it was clear that he was making use of the fragments within him to work against any intrusion. "For so long, we had been blessed with a passion to know what it means to be a friend, family, or even a mentor. And... we also had lost numerous important to us but it is up to us to continue the torch, to passes it down to our children and to their children. That is what we can do for those who we lost in the way to now..." He continued, he was aware of Itsuki Uchiha and his work perhaps due to his close relations or it could be that it came from the mouth of Heiwa, when he bragged about causing him to pass out in a single hold. Nevertheless, he was quick to improvise on spot could this be due to his experience as an actor? He knew that it was best to have Itsuki Uchiha on his side, considering that he needed as many allies in order to ensure even there's peace after their death and so instead of questioning his action he was associating it with a speech and even a name. It was no secret that had Itsuki shows up on the screen this would arouse even worries in many as if he didn't show up on the news as much it just means he is doing his job right? "For those who might have experienced fear, anxiety, or even uncertainty just know that there are people who are keeping your best interests at heart and to make sure in the end we're leaving behind a secured future for the new generation, and this step would lead us into the future where each one of us isn't neglected, my heart ached for the Uchiha, after all, they are also my family..." He paused, noting that he considers all in the Leaf City his family though it can be interpreted as that it was because he is also apart of the Uchiha through his father Kouwei Uchiha. Still, it is true that all Hokage, well the majority of the Hokage had considered those under their care a family; a mindset that had been passed down from Hashirama Senju, though it was notable the most in Naruto Uzumaki's case. "Let this be the testament of our drive, to show that we're only strong together, not divided, this is my promise to you all. For my family the denizens of this village, I'll fight for you long as I live and die. Those who can fight, I encourage you to fight for our family." he paused, in the middle of the conversation, this was clear that even those who weren't phased by the statement of Itsuki Uchiha would focus on the person. It would be foolish to assume one could dismiss the speech of the Hokage—it would force a question in the others. But times only will tell. He looked up at the camera once more... "Our Will of Fire will continue to burn as long we live." he concluded with a smile, though this was an action to show Itsuki he wasn't like a certain predecessor. With this, it was almost as if his own actions are being observed by the people themselves, giving them a chance to see him based on his action and not on his abilities but whatever the case is he made a promise to his people and he intended to keep it, no matter what it cost. As it appears that the news would conclude with the shinobi in his own command dismissing the reporters away from the Uchiha compound.
"Itsuki. We need to talk and we don't have much time." He whispered though he didn't say any more as it concerns even national security or perhaps the world...this could be why the original hadn't been seen for a bit and was he going to notify the Magistrate what had transpired outside the nation that would threaten the future of this country? This would be Itsuki's call to hear him out... Had he refused the nation as we know it would succumb to an attack by the aliens. Information about the alien was only disclosed by the Gokage and hasn't made it an announcement it would be foolish to do so unless confirmed. Though, this was confirmed by Mowa Sozo who had approached one of the very aliens. Though a sudden jolt of knowledge hits him through the telepathy, causing him to be in such an urgency.
"Man seeks peace, yet at the same time yearning for war… Those are the two realms belonging solely to man. Thinking of peace whilst spilling blood is something that only humans could do. They’re two sides of the same coin… to protect something… another must be sacrificed"
It'd be just as Yozu closed the door to her home she knew something was amiss, something her own energy is telling her, having lived her entire life in the Uchiha compound and growing up here she knew everyone that lived here, given the fact Yozu's mastery over the Wood Release helped reconstruct Konoha and the Uchiha compound, it wouldn't be long for her at all to identify that it had been invaded by different to normal chakra signatures, having known her Kin's signatures for her entire life, she could quite clearly see as clear as day that something was wrong.. she did however take note that these chakra signatures where indeed that of Land of Fire, so that did put her mind at relative ease, however the last time someone was sneaking around the Uchiha compound was Ketsugo Uzumaki and that was to take indecent pictures of her while she was unaware. However learning from that her senses wouldn't lower while in her own home anymore, she did indeed after all have her own mission, to find her son, Suhaku. With the activation of her three tomoe sharingan she began to quickly scan the entire compound, any intent would have been reflected back toward the user, it was during that moment that she would have indeed been intercepted by these unknown individuals.
Armed with nothing but her Katana and the clothing on her back, she would not hesitate to reach for it, it wouldn't be until her sixth sense had identified their unique swords, naturally from the experience and memories of Madara Uchiha and Sasuke Uchiha she would indeed be able to identify the unique Truth seeker while not orbs manifested and formed in a blade.
"My my, how impressive how did you come across those blades? did you craft them yourselves?"
Yozu did indeed have many questions, for a Kenjutsu expert and swordology expert like herself she could easily come to appreciate a fine blade, however Yozu did indeed know that to acquire the means to manipulate truth seekers would indeed need the chakra of Hagoromo.. or.. Hamura..? of course, she couldn't tell for certan, she did however note that unlike the Ashura and Indra immunity to truth seekers and being able to stand on them, touch them. That feeling from Sasuke Uchiha's memories wasn't present in her mind. There for she had as much reason to believe these truth seekers would harm her should they touch her, however.. the handle that is used to hold such a ethereal material was indeed something she envy's
"Say, who provided you them blades? was it Ketsugo..? or Mowa..?"
Yozu continued to prod and poke. All though, she knew who it was, given the evidence on the table.
Ketsugo's would share the same connection that Sasuke and Naruto felt with his truth seekers.
Two, even if it was Mowa, she'd still share a connection with it as it would manifest from a previous incarnate.
She did indeed, not even know for certain if they had truth seekers themselves. She could only "feel" the incarnates inside them yearning to connect and communicate with their physical incarnates.
"Was it... Itsuki, Itsuki Uchiha?"
She spoke, almost as if trying to bait one of them into attacking her, then she wouldn't feel the guilt of harming one of them. However.. with that she had her three tomoe sharingan bore and ready. Her eyes simply scanning them, she would in a quick fashion, raise her hands together with enough speed to even confuse the men before her, however her defence was still strong, surely the men before her knew of Yozu Uchiha's precision tactices in Taijutsu, so perhaps it would be wise to take her up on this offer.
She spoke, while this was indeed her home, her compound, she didn't intend to start a fight here in front of the entire clan, however, with that being said, she in return spoke once more, using all the knowledge she could at her disposal, she knew if Itsuki was involved and she resisted, it would only ruin her reputation as Uchiha Lord and tarnish her name, no matter how innocent she may be running only seals ones fate.
However, Yozu Uchiha couldn't help but feel betrayed, because this isn't the first time she is being convicted, but for this time? she doesn't know, that's why she is surrendering, to find out. Perhaps it has something to do with her missing Son?
"I surrender peacefully, however I bare the right to know why and where I am being taken and I hope you understand I will not be deactivating my Sharingan, for the moment you guys reach for my eyes, I will not hesitate to defend myself."
That was indeed the only warning Yozu Uchiha gave the men before her.
With that, she went willingly. Unshackled, unbound. Willingly.
It wasn't until she caught the attention of Itsuki self proclaiming himself as the next Uchiha Lord completely missing his entire speech, she would start to burst into a fit of laughter, the red hue glowing from her eyes shining ever brighter.
"Oh, man.. does he really think the Uchiha will allow a half breed to become Uchiha lord? the clan will eat him alive.."
Surely her next comment would come at even her captures surprises, unless they already knew of his intentions.
"Even with Genjutsu, they will still resist.~"
The Uchiha Clan.. something indeed truly special in her heart while she had indeed relished her time as Lord, she would believe that she had maintained a peaceful bridge between Land of Fire and Konoha with the Clan of Uchiha, building up their trust, so in her eyes, even with Mowa Sozo's own defence of the Clan, she couldn't help but smile a little, this would indeed show her the living proof that the Bond between Uchiha, Konoha and the land of fire was stronger than ever, so in her eyes? mission complete, naturally she took note of how Mowa released the civilian Uchihas from their un-willing fate, furthering her own proof that the bonds are strong.
"He reminds me a lot of you, Heiwa-Sensei.~ He will surpass you, I'm sure of it."
She spoke, she had simply shrugged her desire to remain as Uchiha Lord had diminished for she had a mission of her own she must do and that is finding her son, Suhaku Goka, she would continue to following her captures, their destination unknown to her.
A sigh finds itself coming from Itsuki's mouth as the weight of the cameras being upon him has been alleviated. His peer and the one who was in need of questioning, Mowa Sozo, had arrived. This saved him the trouble of dealing with an uncooperative ally. That was what they were, whether Itsuki liked it or not. His entire position was built upon the foundation that he was to keep the Hokage in check and to prevent them from overstepping their boundaries. There was much that he had to answer for, even within his small tenure. From his first day, there were a plethora of things that perturbed the detective. Mowa was not Ketsugo, no, such a reign would not be allowed to exist within Konoha ever again. It was for this reason that he needed the guidance of Itsuki in order to plan his next steps. Where there is light, there is also darkness. The Hokage was no fool, he was all too aware of Itsuki's existence and his duties. It was because of these duties that he had likely supported the man's claim upon live television.
The look of disgust twists Itsuki's face into a grimace as the crowd dissipates and he responds to Mowa's words. "If it's urgent, then you wouldn't have brought a clone to handle your business, Hokage." Feeling disrespected, Itsuki begins to walk, speaking to the man as they head for his office in order to speak. "You should know better than anyone that I know when you're utilizing a shadow clone. You should also not fear looking towards me, Mowa." What a rare sight it was for Itsuki to call a Hokage by their name. One thing was certain, however, and it was that this was a sign of respect. He needed the Hokage to be functional and wasn't interesting in fighting a battle within the Leaf at all. Instead, he was looking to quell the anarchy that had gone on as well as rollback that which Ketsugo Uzumaki had put into place. Given what had happened during Mowa's current reign, it was clear that the half-breed's sudden actions were well warranted.
As they near the building, he is all too aware of which Anbu are under his direct command and which have remained. Many were relieved from their post in order to watch over Itsuki with an unwavering conviction that his actions were necessary. If there was one thing that a person could say about Itsuki, it was that he was a cautious man indeed. His gray jacket flutters slightly as he walks side by side with the Hokage into his office. Exhaling, Itsuki turns his back to Mowa while Mowa gathers himself and potentially sits in his chair.
"Amazing, isn't it?" He inquires, a softer tone coming from his voice as his hand reaches out while his fingers brush against the pictures of the former Kage. His fingers stop as they press against Heiwa Sozo's picture. "Yes, it's truly wonderful what a Kage is capable of, wouldn't you say?" Another rhetorical question comes forth as he pays no heed to Mowa just yet. Sheer admiration can be felt within the room. A distinct lack of tension is present currently. The Uchiha Lord's intent has not come forth, nor does he have any intentions of projecting it. After withdrawing his fingers from Heiwa's photo, he grasps Ketsugo's and brings it close to him, turning towards Mowa now. Looking up, he has every intention to meet Mowa's eyes. Should the man decide that he wants to look away, he can do so. However, Itsuki's chakra is calm and has shown no sign of spiking anytime soon. Hopefully, the Hokage's paranoia wouldn't get the best of him. "You know, Hokage like Ketsugo shouldn't have existed in the first place. During his tenure, he tarnished the name of the leaf and he brought about all of the anarchy that you have let continue." A short pause comes forth as the image of Ketsugo drops from Itsuki's hand and finds itself being crushed beneath his feet.
"So, tell me, Mowa Sozo..." Inching forward, he places his palms on the Hokage's desk while his intense gaze continues to fixate itself upon him. "Why is it that you haven't rolled back that which Ketsugo Uzumaki put into place? The list is large and you have plenty of time. Yet... There's not a single sign of paperwork or action. Are you condoning all of this, perhaps? Is this what it means to be a Hokage? To let the mistakes of your predecessor go unchecked? The verbal assault continues as he speaks once more, fully expecting Mowa to listen: "Yozu Uchiha—a national treasure and asset—was allowed to leave the nation for two years while she had the child of that hound. I'll be damned if I let that go unpunished. But worry not, I am dealing with it right now." His stare grows more intense, threatening to consume the man with fear should he dare to look away from Itsuki "Tell me... Do you feel fit to be Hokage, or are you simply playing dress-up? We have a village to protect, Mowa." The audacity of the Uchiha knows no bounds, but for a good reason. He now awaits a response while he receives intelligence regarding Yozu Uchiha's current whereabouts. "Once you answer that question, I will listen to what you needed to talk to me about."
The Sūkikyō: (Lit.枢機卿;”Cardinals”) have not spoken to Yozu Uchiha, aside from asking her to come with them. Her compliance is what they hoped for and exactly what they achieved. While she walks, one walks in front of her while the other walks behind her. They have no intentions of harming her given her compliance. By the time Itsuki and Mowa reached the Hokage's office, Yozu and the Cardinals have reached their destination. It is an FIA facility hidden within plain sight, disguised as a regular building. A spiral of stairs leads them down into a room that holds the Uchiha crest and other clan decorations. Within the room, it is possible to cut off one's ability to mold specific types of chakra and utilize bloodline techniques, which includes dojutsu. This hasn't happened quite yet, however, and remains unknown to the former Uchiha Lord. One of the two men begin to speak "Yozu Uchiha, you have been brought to this location and are to await Itsuki Uchiha's arrival. The only information we are allowed to give you is that Lord Itsuki is willing to allow you a chance to regain your honor." With that, they each stand at the entrance to this room, unwavering and silent as they have elected to stop speaking after giving her such important information. Should she try to leave, she would be met with quite a large amount of resistance.
As it appears that he was neared by the Shadow of the Hidden Leaf, though it was no mystery that while the Hokage is the Light there's always the shadow right behind it. Still, the Uchiha's observation regarding his existence to be a shadow clone was but impressive but it was true that he was aware of his ability of able to discern, after all this man was one who had been engaged to his older sister. "I would've approached you myself, but... It had to do with what I'm going to say." he paused, as it appears that he was taking a moment to take a breath as his eyes darted left to right, it was his duty at least to learn the faces that are to be positioned outside of the Hokage Mansion it was made clear that he could discover that this was without permission, causing him to smile a bit, not only at the fact he had broken numerous laws just now...it was giving him enough ground to address it. He recognized the agents positioned around the entrance causing him to realize that this was the followers - nay supporters a proof of his unchecked weight."Interesting..."he thought, still he maintained the expression. Still, the fragments behaved as the anchor for the Jinchuriki despite the words of the Uchiha, he couldn't afford to due to his position, causing him to smile the moment they entered the office. As his nose inhaled the air of which is filled with leaves' scent causing him to relax a bit though he was being addressed nay questioned on his intention as a man as well as a leader it was no secret that Itsuki, while a Fire Magistrate he is tasked to keep the governors in check. The Jinchuriki sat on the chair, where he truly belonged. "Of course not. I have no fear of looking at you so." He paused, taking a glance at the Uchiha once more. "As a man in a position like us, there'll be enemies in our environment whenever we go. It's not bad to be cautious sometimes." He maintained the tone in which a kage ought to possess in his office it was no puzzle that he didn't intend to back down from the presence of the Uchiha.
"Right?" He paused, closing his right, but recapitulated to demonstrate the shifting course in the pupil betokening life.
Silence. Is all one could hear from the Jinchuriki it wasn't the moment to interrupt the Uchiha's speech regarding the Hokage and what it is that they are supposed to do. Admittedly, this was partially his fault for not addressing the issues that continued to neglect the Uchiha clan causing him to pinch the bridge between his eyes. "I know. Itsuki." He continued, not rather apologetic but it was just the facts. After all, he was dealing with so much on top of everything else that was inherited from Ketsugo Uzumaki causing him to listen still... "The paperwork. The rollback. Everything you just said." He paused once more, as he took a moment to breathe. "As you might have wondered why is that I didn't act on making sure that the Uchiha aren't being neglected as a result of Yozu Uchiha's doing... My oldest daughter was kidnapped by a mysterious group, on top of that there was an incident with a genin that I had to deal with, and then there's also the fact that my original is facing an alien from outer space. Admitting that in my tenure it had been rather hectic." he said, acknowledging that the position has its own unique circumstance. Once more... Itsuki asked some questions regarding his position and thought on things. "Itsuki." He paused once more, it is clear that it was a display of disrespect that he was addressing him as he condemned little as he observed the destruction of what would appear as the Thirteenth "As I said to the news and to you... I intended to protect this village no matter what it takes, even if this means to fight you if you were by any means a threat to my people."he paused once more, maintaining a confident expression. "Of course, I'm not referring to you breaking the laws in order to make use of the FIA's to make an action in Uchiha compound, just now. Or attempted to place those unfortunate civilians under an illusion." he stared, though his eyes glowed in green indicating he was rather upset about it placing the Taiwa Scroll on the table as he maintained eye contact. "If it wasn't for this, you would be just like him and the others who abused their position. If it happened again within this village you're not any better than what Ketsugo did. If the Fire Magistrate is to balance the Hokage, then I will make sure you are also in reconciliation with the laws that even you have sworn to uphold. No man is above the Laws, isn't it?" he was no pushover and he made sure he knows this as well through the pressure even the Hokage exerted just by strength and willpower. Suddenly he interrupted himself as he placed his hand close to his mouth he continued to clear his voice. "Gettin' carried there," he murmured as he closed his eyes, he was to answer his question on whether he considers himself as a Hokage or just playing dress-up. "Then again..." he elevated from the chair to turn his head around to take a glance at the village once more. "When I was a kid, I used to hate being a shinobi, because it stole the very important ones in my life then I realized once I embraced the will of fire. They didn't regret losing their lives, not at all. Especially if it was to protect their loved ones, including you and me. Though that's our job to make sure the next one didn't die, right? he paused. "One step toward peace, that's what you said, isn't it?" he turned once more.
Sudden a picture caught his glance as he darted to the content in which was of the picture of himself and Heiwa.
"Let's get to the business, shall we?" He clapped his hand once more, though this was to insinuate that he wasn't going to wait any longer. "As I mentioned that my original is facing an alien at this moment.... who was speculated to be involved in the death of Owatatsumi and Heiwa." He murmured, though it is clear that he was capable of dealing with the alien himself as well as others in his team he wasn't sure if there was just him...
Though this would be revealed to be a ruse on the Hokage's part as it appears that this action was executed in such a complex telling, revealing things as that it was of an illusion placed in advance rendering majority of his speech as but falsified. You see, Itsuki looked straight into the camera, whilst... Mowa looked up at the camera when they were outside... this would certainly be odd, now wouldn't it? In the reality, however, this was enough to make haste as he placed his hand on the Uchiha and teleported him to the dimension within fractions, within fractions of a second. In the equivalent moment as Mowa reveals it to his allies in the dimension it stands to that he was able to coerce Itsuki into freeing the shadow clone, cutting the connection with the real world right after the original are placed in the infinite space. It was all but moments just under a second since he got caught in a genjutsu cast by the Hokage, on top of that the shadow clone of Itsuki Uchiha did not detect the irregularities in the original.
Itsuki’s solitary reality had been painted from the very inception of his arrival, not only employing it to drag Itsuki Uchiha into an illusion he was also able to put a stop to the potential coup against Leaf City as well as its people. But when was it implemented? It was the entry in which was used as a means to execute a genjutsu attack on the Uchiha and succeeded as he acknowledged it through his incredible perception in which he was notorious for. Still, the view would disperse in a liquefying pattern revealing the revelation, which reveals the Uchiha outskirt to be the consistent location. Though the interval between the illusion and here was the arresting of Itsuki Uchiha, as well as numerous soldiers who had followed him to be ousted. It was possible through the close investigation on the behalf of Yamanaka that were administered throughout the government buildings in order to weed out the loyal supporters of Itsuki Uchiha for it was warranted. On the other hand, the Sūkikyō exposed themselves in the name of Itsuki though this would provide city-wide arrest as it was proven to be the largest arrests in the history, not only that the Shinobi is able to confiscate their weapons and hindered their access to their abilities, both genetics, and attainment with unique seals that are designed to negate their power they were sent to a secret prison which serves as their home for the time being and is to be reconditioned. Though for the Uchiha clan they demanded answers for what had occurred. "You might have wondered why it happened." He paused, maintaining his presence as a powerful man. "He wanted to place you guys under a genjutsu, the proof is here." He murmured as he held up a taiwa scroll in which reveals the evidence that each one of them was in an illusion as a result of Itsuki's doing, for he never trusted the clan. "Itsuki Uchiha had committed numerous crimes and violated your right as a person. Fortunately, we were able to detect it and freed each one of you." He continued, he appeared to be rather irritated by the fact that it was in such a bold method this can be perceived by the crowd as a person who cares and worries for their well-being. At the same moment, it was made clear that the agents Itsuki planted in Konoha were arrested, whilst issuing a removal for Itsuki Uchiha's position as a shinobi and stripped of his respectful positions. It is made clear to them that they were concerned about their treatments causing him to speak out, in order to lighten their worries however he can. "For those who might have experienced fear, anxiety, or even uncertainty just know that there are people who are keeping your best interests at heart and to make sure in the end we're leaving behind a secured future for the new generation, and this step would lead us into the future where each one of us isn't neglected, my heart ached for the Uchiha, after all, you are my family. Everyone in the entire village is a family and we couldn't abandon each other in time of need." he reflected, taking a glance over the crowd he appeared to be remorseful of the past treatment and closed his eyes once more...
The Hokage maintained his composure as he held tight to his ideals and mindset in which he inherited from Heiwa the Ninth Hokage. "Let this be the beginning to foster our neglected love once again. For this is the testament of our conviction, Lord Ninth, Pops wouldn't want any single soul to be mistreated nor alienated in this country." his voice was heavy and strong, yet this resonates silently within the Uchiha clan. "We are stronger unitedly, and not divided. For you, that fosters the love carried on by our ancestors to the next age...I urge you to fight for our home, for our family and to protect them. And this is my promise to you, I will fight for you. I will fight for every single soul in my beloved family, for you are my blood as much as my own children... You. My brothers. My sisters. My grandparents. My uncles. My aunts. My children. Will you protect our family with me?" There is absolute truth in his words and this would be welcomed by the people he had sworn to protect, rallying the will of fire in the crowd as well as those who watched the news at the time causing them to applause and to be inspired by the speech. This would empower the nation with instilled hope and love for their people.
He smiled. The smile could be rather infectious as it provokes the others to do the same—let it be the testimonial of their ascertainment. "This is our Will of Fire," he concluded and emphasized on the Will of Fire indicating that this was the ideal each one of them in the country had inherited and to embrace it wholeheartedly. Remained determined he was able to conclude the report on a good note, though he was thanked by numerous civilians and greeted with an approaching vibe. He was also attended into a house by a numerous group of elders who had suggested that the damage had been done as the clan itself had lost hope in the Sharingan Goddess as a leader to lead them petitioning for a new lord, one that would think of their well-beings. "Mm..." He reminisced on the chatters between the members as he was able to persuade them to accept one that is faithful to both its clan and village who was willing to preserve the peace and to fight for the country. The temp lord is Rengō Uchiha until a decorous lord is determined. What of the Wicked-Eyed Itsuki? It was made clear to them that he was a threat to the security of the Fire People and so he was to be sent to a reticent black site whose purpose is to negate the scope of his capabilities unless permitted to and its location are generally anonymous to even the Hokage himself though he can request the whereabouts where he was subjected to unspeakable acts at the behest of the Hokage's ANBU. Within the black site, the lifeless Itsuki can be discovered on the cold - metallic table, in order to execute the process causing the clones he placed to disperse as a result of such. It was fortunate that they were able to stop him though it was clear that he would turn on them in fear of doing so they were sent out to do what they were tasked; disposing of the threats in secret. It was fortunate that they were able to obstruct him before it could result in potential bloodshed nor a civil war. One of the much-experienced agents were able to procure the optics in a unique container with the special chemicals inside to preserve its existence, this was to archive the most vital assets. This was to be expected as this was a threat that is considered as an asset, anticipated as it expected. At the same time, there would be an agent, whose hair is orange and a female. As swift it was, there was no delay in their movement; grace as it was. There wasn't a hint of hesitation either as it was all but a routine to them. The woman was able to use the fuinjutsu of the Sozo clan to seal; though the third were to siphon and redirect the chakra of the Wicked-Eyed into a blue scroll first; then the man to be stored into the red scroll. The optics were sealed into the purple scroll, conjoined with the blue scroll. For the purple scroll to be teleported to the clone, imprinting then into the blank zone onto the hands of the Hokage. The seals are designed to counter any and would yield only to the sitting Hokage.
A few moments later... This would create a new era for the world.. yet the world didn't know.
Until it was too late.
Through the assistance of his personal ANBU as well as Shinobi under his direct command, he was able to arrest the likes of Itsuki Uchiha, a gamble, high risk, and high reward. He placed his hand on the desk, pilfering a glance at his office thinking of a particular someone, and wondered what he had been up to. A sigh of relief as he was able to dismantle a potential coup within the country, could this be what his own predecessors had to deal with? He couldn't help but chuckle at the thought of it happening again and caused him to feel but distressed. As it appears that the eyes have baggage indicating that even he knows he has a limit as a kage, he acknowledged that he needed advisors, not just Nine-Tails. But he was able to keep operating as the leader despite the trials in life. Still, he was able to restore order in the village as possible.
He sat as he watched the report regarding Itsuki. "To think it would happen... Unbeliev—"
The fading happiness deviated from the heart as it was almost as if he grew pale at the eventful destruction, the horrors he could physically sense. And then just like the destruction brought, it was but a pitch-black blackness that haunted the very heart of the village consuming the nation by sectors and sectors causing all electrical devices to shut down. This would provide him to be in dissent "No..." He breathed as his heart submerged in the shocking discovery, his hands caressed against the translucent wall. "No-no-no. It can't be." His wide-eyed expression couldn't admit what was about to come. "Could it be the alien's doing?" He was expeditious to probe the disaster and then conceded it couldn't be as he was already occupied by the Red Hound, The Tempest, and then the emerald Hokage. "Then could this be someone else operating with the green alien?" He lamented, inviting the assumption that it wasn't just one alien and there could be more. His fists clasped in question shook in disappointment as they didn't even consider it. "What the hell..." marshaled as best as he could. "Kitsune. Tanuki." Two words discharged by the lips as his canine teeth can be exhibited in his irritated grimace. As quick as they were, they appeared in a crouching position with a single hand pressed against the cold surface in the presence of the Hokage, they were to act on the command of the Fire Shadow. A song of struggle can be felt throughout the country, signifying what would be a battle challenging everything they knew in order to survive. As the light supporting their home withered the fire never disappeared in the eyes of the Shinobi, not just himself as he still had confidence in the people and so he was able to issue a statement through the scroll, both notifying the people as well as those outside on their mission. "As long we're united and to have strength in ourselves we'll prevail through whatever it may be. Just like when we had to endure the Fourth Shinobi War, just like when we had to stop the Otsutsuki when they attacked us. We still prevailed in the name of love and hope, they could never take that away from us as we are survivors and that's in our blood to endure as a shinobi, nay as a person born in our country." he spoke, never wavering in his words. It is clear that there was dissonance within the village though he was able to dismiss it with his voice, not only reigniting the fire within he was able to motivate the people to endure it as a family.
He released his hand as he proceeded to placed his arms behind the back, turning himself around to face the duo. "I will be entrusting you two with two tasks." He glanced upon the duo with such a sense of urgency, recalling the advice of his comrade dwelled within. "I have no doubt that whoever it is are after something but for now we have to secure the resources around the nation." He closed his eyes, he was referring to the food, water, and even emergency supplies that would be revealed to him as he was investigating into the Land of Fire's emergency plans had the country fell in a state of war not by himself but with the assistance of the Nine-Tails. "Kitsune. Secure the assets and increase security around them. Take as much as you can without weakening the country." he recapitulated the light endured in the pupils causing an immediate confirmation in the man wearing the fox mask as he vanished. And then the next, he was able to turn his head to the man wearing the Tanuki mask and advocated him to exercise as normal, but on a greater scale with the support of appropriating the proper forces of the Shinobi, BIRD, Heiwa Taskforce, and even Firefighters—other authorities to work together during the emergency, issuing an emergency circulation throughout those with the Taiwa Scroll.
There is no power throughout the nation, it is also confirmed that it isn't just the Land of Fire, anything that uses electricity as a source of power wouldn't work. Please work together with the proper authorities in order to restore the peace and order, mandate as possible. And for those outside the land, it is permitted to return home. Use the Taiwa Scroll."
Through the Taiwa Scroll in which is empowered by the Sozo Algorithm, it was able to maintain its purposes and functions it was able to recall numerous shinobi from their missions into the village in order to operate as a task force in response to the immediate blackout and to prepare themselves in advance for potential attacks. Though he did not summon Hino Akanohi from the mission for it had an important factor in survival the headquarter were able to determine that his mission were near completion though it was also determined that he needed reinforcements; Team Sayu to assist the young Akanohi and Samiya with the mission as it may have a great influence in their survival. It was but an instantaneous summons that they were summoned to their exact whereabouts without a delay, whilst notified the participants that they were to help out with this particular mission. Team Sayu to Shippo Mineshaft.
Behind the scene, the man with the fox mask was able to coordinate and preserve even the data, assets, and valuable tools are archived in proper procedures; placing them in needed containers and sealed into numerous giant scrolls though it is noted it was also designed by the Sozo Algorithm in order to prevent accidental opening, at the same time it is designed to be only opened or summoned by the Hokage himself, ensuring that it was secured in a time like this. Though it is also clear that there was to be snow it was countered by the action in which the Land of Fire had performed, though it is also clear that eventually, it would be overwhelmed by the snow in time causing the Hokage to transfer what he had gathered from the Five-Tails in the battle against Uragoe into the Taiwa Scroll which allows it to be transmitted into the barrier, strengthening the climate control. Though it is made clear to him he needed the Five-Tails' chakra to maintain it without overwhelming the Nine-Tails. Making use of the eighth layer, climate control is made expedient and achievable. "This weather isn't getting eased up, I reckon it'll not end... with just a power loss." He paused, he was able to determine the situation laid out. At the same moment, he was also receiving information from one of the communications centers causing him to side-eyed the room in a fashion of him turning his head to the said individual. "Lord Hokage." the man queried. "There are various reports about the power going out throughout the world."The mediator paused. It was clear by now that the communications center was making use of their chakra-based abilities as well as fuinjutsu within the Taiwa Scrolls to invoke circulation of information between these in the front-line and the headquarters, compelled to notify the Hokage of what had transpired. It was no secret that this never had happened on such a tremendous level. The Hokage paused, closing his eyes the drip of sweat can be seen falling down the forehead. "The Terminals are reporting that they had lost touch with the planes, they're going down."He recapitulated until his song carried out in the end. ".....And the hospitals...." the man bellowed in fear and anxiety in the words though it was made clear that he maintained himself for the sake of the people needing help. "The barriers are being attacked but for now it managed its structure. Fortunately for us that at least the defenses remained and with some of its feature in play." He continued. The barriers themselves were powered by the chakra of its citizens, natural energy, solar energy, and even the Nine-Tails, this would mean it never had powered down. A blessing in the darkness, nevertheless this doesn't mean they were to ease up on the responses to it. This would be made clear that the fuinjutsu in which supports the barriers would readjust and counter any possible order preventing some of its ideal results from swaying the nation entirely, not only it is able to dismiss foreign seals from reaching within the barriers it is made clear that it was revising its arrangement in response to the initiative. It occurred because the seals themselves are alive in a sense and have a passive trait in which it automatically blocks intrusive chakra from within and out this is what provoked the seals to adapt to the constant sequences. It didn't mean it could counter the pulse in which affected the technological aspect of the world as it reduced devices that use electricity as nonfunctional and moot causing incredible losses as some were used to keep humans from the brink of death. At the same time, there is an increase in vehicle accidents. Across the nation, the workers were operating in response to shut down the reactors before it could invoke nuclear instability this was possible as they were forced to do it manually; though it still emits everlasting heat from within with its surroundings fitted to handle the core for a long time able to deal with the reactors in a proper sequence.
For a moment the glance was placed on the picture positioned at the right corner of the desk causing him to smile a bit, acknowledging that this would be a testament to protect the home he knew. In order to make his father proud, in order to make his family proud he would be to be the pillar of light. As the will of fire continued to burn from within the Hokage, overcoming the darkness once for all. "Send out messengers to the affiliated allies of the United Republic to assemble a meeting." He paused, the tone set the environment. "Now,"he emphasized, ordering the man to send out about the same amounts of shinobi, correspondingly to the amounts of nations in the United Republic declaring that the Supreme Commander is issuing an emergency summit, and it was mandatory. The location would be determined to be in Yami Continent.
He suspended, allotting his sensation to be one with the energies of the entities within he was able to mediate the energies in an incredible balance and infuses them into one, whilst filtering out the untypical energy out in order to enhance his unnatural receptive, in order to detect the entire lives in his range, immersing into an incredible sensation as he was able to perceive the movement of people, he was able to direct the rescuers to save those who needed help. At the same time, he was also able to bring the circuit in both optics in order to increase the range of his sensory. Sudden, an interruption was taken as the same voice from the headquarters reached his ears "Sir—" he hesitated.
"I know." He whispered in response, interrupting what he was going to say. Even the Naibugan could discover this, had he not use the enhanced sensory for it was made clear that there existed a plane that was about to crash overhead the city as it lost power right above them. In his mind, he could discern a plane shape, though it was only possible due to the biological energies the humans possessed this is what the Naibugan had discovered and even then he was able to discern it with the sensory granted by the transformation alone. In a split second, the Hokage was able to teleport to a tag he had planted on the top of the Hokage Mansion here he was able to see the falling star that is a plane.
A whistle can be heard across the village as it was originated from the plane itself being pushed against the powerful wind. Inside the plane, there were numerous people in fear, shock, and screams for their lives before they know it; it would be the end for them. Not on the Hokage's watch he was able to converse and tapped into the chakra of the Nine-Tails within the man as he extended his hand toward the sky, causing such an incredible change from within his body. Though it was a form of chakra Kurama's head manifested from beneath his feet until it lifted the Jinchuriki in the heart of the avatar mode, his body transformed in the succession forming the Avatar Mode. At the same time, he was making use of the power in order to attain the might of flight causing the avatar to fly into the sky.
"Let's save what we can, Kurama!" He shouted as the avatar vaulted above the roof, under a second he was able to reach it and was making use of the wind release and chakra in order to redirect the projectile whilst reducing its inertia so that he could interrupt its flight and landed it into a place where it had no inhabitants on the ground. "Almost.... there" he grimaced at the effort it would require as it succeeded in easing its flight to a proper speed for him to stop it.
"Alright, Shadow Clones Technique!" he bellowed almost like it was moving he was able to create four shadow clones and positioned them in vital positions in order to push the plane in the opposing direction as it was made clear that the inertia is greatly reduced to a point it can be landed without killing the inhabitants within the plane, succeeding in landing the plane. By now he was able to strengthen the security around the other Nine-Tails, the emergency supplies as well as resources that could be proven in vital against the potential outgrowths of which the technologies are affected on fundamental levels causing the Land of Fire to respond in accord to answer to the sudden change in the darkness to create a giant ball of light in each province of Land of Fire in which are utilized by numerous undistinguished shinobi in order to eliminate the unexpected darkness throughout the nation within the barriers here it would reveal the Avatar as he broke the door and made use of its tail as a ladder of the sort for the survivors to go through down. Though... the clone was able to notice numerous planes crashing into the ocean causing him to laugh and with a drop of sweat downward the forehead.
"Hahaha.... A-Are you kidding me?" The voice was in such an incredible denial.
"Man seeks peace, yet at the same time yearning for war… Those are the two realms belonging solely to man. Thinking of peace whilst spilling blood is something that only humans could do. They’re two sides of the same coin… to protect something… another must be sacrificed"
What in the world was going on? is the world going to end? the world seemed to be in complete disarray, Yozu Uchiha would have noticed the first sighting of a plane beginning to descend from the sky, using Yozu's mastery over the Wood Release, she would have jumped on top of a building and with the extension of her hand, palm forward followed by her other hand that lay over her palm, her fingers resting in each of the webbing in her hand, this technique was boosted massively by every single building that resided inside of Konoha that consists of Yozu's Wood from her Wood Release, wooden hands all beginning to form from the buildings all consisting of Yozu's wood from rebuilding Konoha, these hands that come up following the planes down and gently slowly, very slowly guide them down ontop of the hand, the very hand itself becoming staircases for people to walk down once the plane had successfully stopped. Every house that expands from one side of Konoha to the other, that all consisted of Yozu's Wood Release, would do this. All aiming to prevent planes crashing into Konoha and saving the people inside as well. All slowly guiding them before holding them and becoming stairs for the people, Yozu Uchiha's wood release spanned all across Konoha and this same technique used for every falling plane.
Next, with that out of the way Yozu Uchiha would place her hands together and almost like she was praying from her body a total of 12 Wooden Clones would emerge from her body, each of these clones would dart off in a multitude of directions, 3 heading to the North of Konoha, 3 to the South, 3 to the East and 3 to the west all going there to stabilize Yozu's technique and maintain control over the situation, this would prompt Yozu Uchiha to turn down, looking to her fellow kin and speak.
"Everyone, form groups of 5 and look for people who may be trapped inside their homes or injured."
With that, Yozu Uchiha had jumped down from the building completely, issuing her command to her fellow Kin, she would have set up the Uchiha compound to become an Aid Centre for those who happen to need help, assistance or a place to regroup and find family.
"Open the gates to our compound and welcome anyone in who needs help, now go!"
she had yelled at the top of her lungs, her voice echoing through the compound, her word becoming absolute.
Suddenly, four Uchiha Clans men/women would appear behind Yozu Uchiha, their names Tsubaki Uchiha, Fujiwari Uchiha, Silva Uchiha and Ketsu Uchiha.
The Rogue Uchiha Hunting Squad
They too, would move out, forming their own squad of 5, each lead by one of them individually, them in their own rights are the strength of a Jounin and too, would help the cause each spreading out to reinforce, aid and protect the citizens of Konoha.
The compound would indeed becoming a gathering spot for any unable to find their loved ones or have injuries, they would be treated by the very small squad of Uchiha healers lead by Fujiwari Uchiha, naturally they would be unable to undergo full surgery however knew the basics of healing and medicinal jutsu and chakra circulation.
Yozu Uchiha would over watch the compound and continue to protect the people from crashing planes, helicopters, car crashes as well as trapped in their homes, Yozu Uchiha was capable of this due to her chakra control and chakra reserves, from the onlookers and those inside of Konoha would be able to see all of Yozu's Wood Release, spanning far and wide all in the defence efforts for Konoha, it would look like fire works.. but of Wood, leaves and tree branches. Yozu Uchiha would however, use one particular Wooden Clone, the clone much like any Wooden Clones would emerge from ones body would begin its search, it was a singular Clone that had the sole purpose of finding the members of the War council, for Yozu Uchiha didn't know if this was an attack on Konoha, or an attack on the world.. she would search them out individually and would approach them like they was indeed in a meeting. It wouldn't speak first, it would wait till it was addressed first when meeting other council members.
Yozu had orderd the Uchiha to aid the people of Konoha, should they be trapped, hurt and injured, separated from loved ones, the Uchiha Clan where indeed a safe spot, as Yozu Uchiha hadn't had much of an affiliation with technology, the "things" wouldn't come from much inside of the compound, the exception being a few computers, desktops and maybe devices, Yozu Uchiha was very old fashioned she preferred storing information via scroll over any other form of storage.
The people of Konoha would find comfort, protection, aid, medical assistance and food. Many of these things would be common to the Uchiha people, however they would offer them to the people of Konoha, the protection the Uchiha gave where sure enough safe and sound, the people of Konoha would find themselves in an open compound, a small segment would be sectioned off for medical, the other for gathering to find family or loved ones, another sectioned off for food and water rationing. Of course everything the Uchiha have here won't last forever they will however provide the bare essentials to keep them safe. Naturally the Uchiha would also aid in anyone in car crashes, as they would spread far and wide all in an attempt to aid the people, crashes from the cause of the technology attack, naturally their speed they would be able to prevent any injuries, thanks to the strength of Tsubaki Uchiha, he would be leading a squad of Uchiha all with the task of preventing injuries via car crashes.
Yozu Uchiha at the command centre for the compound would of course accept any other Konoha ninja into the compound, normally with the past Konoha jounin/anbu where prohibited from entering the compound, out of mutual respect, however with recent events transpiring, they would too be welcomed inside to assist the efforts the Uchiha where doing to aid in Konoha's time of need. The Uchiha risking their own lives in their defence effort, all in attempt to helping Konoha, not for their own standing, but because it is the right thing to do, while Itsuki and now so seems Mowa would be saying that the Uchiha where ignored, not well treated by Yozu Uchiha, that would clearly fail to be so as the coordination, time of response to the event and even the people inside would not defy Yozu Uchiha's order/will for not only is it the right thing to do the Uchiha would find themselves wanting to prove to Konoha they are a valuable asset and friend of Konoha.
Even with the follow announcement of Yozu being removed as the Uchiha Lord, the Clan would not defy her orders for the matters lay with the Clan, not the Hokage. Should the Clan themselves wish for a new lord, they would speak up, to which the tradition of Agni Kai would commence at a later date to prove ones worthiness of becoming the Next Uchiha Lord.
Yozu Uchiha and the compound would be prepared to defend themselves followed by the Mastery over Yozu's wood release she would gain almost like a "second sight" that would allow her to act as a hive mind and relay her orders to the Uchiha men/women. Thanks to the mass spread of Yozu's Wooden Clones she would be able to assist, escort and aid in a very timely manner all for the well being for Konoha and its citizens, the Uchiha Clan where indeed in perfect unity with one another to respond so quickly to recent events.
For a second it was about as it was one special caution for those who are still alive causing him to take a glance at the landscape and then a heartbeat can be felt within as he grasped his chest. It is then clear that he was being stirred by the massive amount of the people being assessed within his sensory power though it was in an overclocking manner without breaking his concentration to divide and conquer the issues throughout the nation through the Taiwa Scroll, though this medium he was able to issue and redirect the patrols, shinobi and even civilians to assist and help out with the things in Land of Fire. The soldiers were able to redirect and rewired the medium of power in the most vital buildings; such as the hospital are reconstructed into one that takes the nuclear energy as well as chakra provided by numerous troops of shinobi making use of rotation shift between different set of shinobi to power the buildings making use of their chakra to brighten the hospital and keeps devices functional in the nation. It is confirmed by now that Land of Lightning had accepted their call though he was able to put a stop on the messengers heading to the rest of the Nations preventing them from entering the border, instead, they were to call for a proper authority at the border to notify them that the Summit Summon is being issued in order to respond to the incident.
He said with a grimace in the tone, though his expression warmed up in the presence of the Genin causing him to raise and place his hand behind the head to ruffle through his hair. It appears that he didn't expect to see Keiwa and them all too soon and in this place, an incident occurred. Though the whispers can be heard he was quick to shift out of the chakra mode it wasn't about his appearance but more so the television that had taken possession by the likes of Madoguchi and all but a word was enough to send a jolt of sensation into his very quintessence though it wasn't of fear it was pure exhilaration and rage an understandable situation as this was the creature that had stolen the lives of his cherished ones.
"I am Madoguchi"
An eerie voice can be heard through the ears, causing him to turn his head to the giant television that can be discovered at the roof of a building causing him to raise an eyebrow as if he was to silence the kids' voice just to listen. And then it was it. He couldn't believe what he was seeing. The face of the creature that had been a factor in things regarding Heiwa's death one could tell he was angry, upset even but then he received a piece of information causing him to smile a bit, though he was ready to notify the man regarding Keiwa and Kiwa's growth though he might have deep down known that he was already aware...
Lord 14th appearing in his base form in front of two of his genin from Team Mowa, Keiwa demeaner was relaxed but deep down in his heart he felt sorrow. Taking a moment to shut his eyes and frown his eyebrows the young shinobi held back his tears with all his might. With his Naibugan still awakened he opened his eyes to look at his brother, the man’s chakra network was unlike anyone Keiwa has ever seen. Kurama’s chakra was still in the process of settling down within Mowa’s body. Gathering his emotions his heart rate slowed down and he could think clearly once more.
“MoMo I’ve looked around Konoha and I couldn’t find Hiwa anywhere. She has been missing for a while now has anyone begun to investigate her situation” The young man asked Lord 14th hoping for an answer would satisfy his concerns. However the young sozo’s Taiwa scroll had been updated with a mission both him and Ryojin were to begin a joint mission with one other shinobi from the Land of Wind. This rather upset Keiwa was more concerned about Hiwa’s whereabouts, a member of his family he was very familiar with due to her being Mowa’s daughter and love for Heiwa, Hiwa was always around trying to steal the spotlight. Keiwa adorned his niece for that. Clenching his fist tightly, Keiwa looked to Ryojin.
“Ryojin you go ahead without me i’ll be there soon” he stated kindly allowing his friend to be comfortable with heading to their meeting point. Turning his attention back to the 14th Hokage, Keiwa's face frowned as he wanted his brother to answer him truthfully. Mowa always had a knack for sugar coating when it came to Keiwa. Despite Mowa’s kindness Keiwa always wished that he was a bit tougher on him instead of looking to treat as if he were still a weak child.
“Mowa,” the young man called his brothers full name with a serious tone to his voice “Find Hiwa and bring her back home please” he stated before rushing to hug his brother, Kei knew now wasn’t the right time to argue and times were going to be tough and he wanted to hug his brother in order to show him that he still loves him he could sense that Mowa’s chakra wasn’t as warm as it usual it was growing colder like an Uchiha who has failed to resist the curse of hatred. With threat of Madoguchi Konoha was sure to need their Kage at this point, Keiwa had wondered who Mowa would choose to save Hiwa or Konoha. The young shinobi would’ve chosen to go save Hiwa but he knew he wasn’t capable of such a feat alone. Anger set through his hearts as he wanted to help badly but he knew he couldn’t if he abandoned his mission and comrades for an investigation that's probably not going to end his favor, the young man made up his mind and decided to follow his orders even though he wasn’t happy.
