As I understand it Genkai died on her own quest to collect a mirror shard. I respected her strength and common sense; it’s a pity that it was all lost. I don’t come bearing any better news, unfortunately, the shard that we intended to retrieve in Iceland was abducted by three weaklings using cowardly means to get what they wanted. Hagiri, Zeru, and Makintaro made off with it. Fortunately Suzuka and Rinku were spared; the whole situation was a chaotic disaster. I absolutely knew I should have gone alone, gives me only a small amount of pleasure to admit that I was correct in assuming that. Rinku, as it turned out, was used as a target and so there was little choice but to hand over the mirror shard. Had it been just myself it would have made little difference. In any case the shard is gone, and as I understand it there is only one shard left to be found. I am drafting myself for that mission.
[OOC Just so we all understand I was given permission to summarize what happened in Iceland due to the confusion and chaos happening in the thread. So, in a nutshell, the bad guys got away with the shard.]
