Job Location: Mysterious Canyon
A man by the name of Markov Shazinski was hired by Masenko Tech to infiltrate Isayev Heavy Industries to steal their latest Magitek Suit, The Tesseract. What his actual intentions are unknown, but he was last seen heading through the Mysterious Canyon towards the Royal Castle. From the looks of things, Markov had also infiltrated Masenko Tech to suit his own purpose. Your job is to take down The Tesseract unit without destroying it. Be careful as The Tesseract comes fully loaded with a LOT of weaponry and a lot of drones at it's disposal. This was, after all, a weapon meant to be used to conquer nations.
What little we know about Markov Shazinski is that he used to be a mage for a small dark guild called "Heaven's Wrath" who wanted to overthrow the government of Fiore. We don't know the reason why they want to overthrow the government of Fiore, but what we do know is that if he manages to get The Tesseract unit to the Royal Castle, that may be the end of our society as we know it. So failure is not an option.
After you enter the Mysterious Canyons, you will encounter the Tesseract unit from the start. Be careful when fighting as it can summon a bunch of smaller drones from within it. You may or may not have to encounter the small drones. Be very wary if you're going to fly near it in a large vehicle as it will immediately aim for airships. So we suggest to not bring any airships with you on this mission. Good luck and godspeed. You can't fail this one so we're counting on you.
Nano-Machine Swarm: Thousands of microscopic machines bundle up into what appears to be clouds of haze. While they move slowly, if one is to come in contact with the cloud, they suffer A Rank DoT damage for 5 posts (50% A Rank damage initially, 25% A Rank damage every post afterward). These swarms are able to withstand 1 A Rank hit before being destroyed.
Suicide Drones: These drones are capable of curling themselves up into a ball and rolling around on the surface. These drones can be taken down by 4 A Rank hits. Upon being destroyed or being out for 3 posts, they will explode dealing A Rank damage to a 10x10 area. One drone exploding can cause others to explode as well, creating a chain reaction. These drones have no other attacks.
Autonomous Orbital Units: Extremely quick and extremely agile. These airborne mechanical nightmares are capable of spitting out focused beams of pure energy at a target at a high rate. Each beam deals B Rank damage, but they are capable of firing this beam up to 4 times per volley. These things are quite difficult to track, but they are extremely flimsy; being capable of being taken down in 3 A Rank hits.

The Target Finder may only be used once per topic. This attack has a 5x5 meter blast radius. This item cannot be used in PvP at all.
Tick... Tick... Tick...
The endless sound that came from the small around object on the wall was burrowing into Kiru's mind as she stared at it silently. In the busyness of the Silver Moon inn, everything else seemed to blur in the demon slayer's vision as her focus was primarily on this clock... Watching... Waiting... She sat alone at an empty booth as per usual. It was rare to see Kiru sitting with anyone. This wasn't her choice however, it was usually theirs. Truth be told she wouldn't care about having company, but something about the girl always drove people away. Most likely her robotic personality either scared people or made them too bored to even bother. Whatever the reason was however, it never seemed to matter to the girl. She seemed perfectly fine on her own. Or did she? No one would ever know. She'd continue to sit at the booth with her hands folded over the table, her bright aqua gaze fixed on the hands, watching every single tick from that clock. Until finally, it dinged! The familiar sound of the hour, and Kiru's head would turn from the clock to the door of the inn. As if rehearsed, someone entered at the exact moment. Someone Kiru had been expecting. The man was tall, and wore dark clothing, a black hat to match. Obviously the mysterious type. He'd look around the Inn for a moment before seeing Kiru. She'd meet his gaze with her own expressionless stare. The man would then proceed to weave his way through the tables and patrons of the bar and sit directly across from her in the same booth, lifting a briefcase and sliding it over to the girl.
"This is everything?" She'd ask quietly, not moving to open the case just yet. "Aye, that was everything I found out." Staring at him for another moment, Kiru would look down at the brief case and slowly reach up to open it. She flicked the two locks open, and lifted the case. Inside was a mountain of papers that looked like they had all hastily been crammed inside, which, judging by the nature of this situation, they probably were. They were documents, and files. Something Kiru had grown used to in the past month since becoming a guild ace. She began looking over the files as the man spoke again. "The man you're looking for goes by the name Markov Shazinski. But he's not exactly who he says he is. Apparently a few months back he was hired by Masenko Tech to infiltrate Isayev Heavy Industries." Kiru would look up from the files with a raised eyebrow. "For what purpose?"
"Theft." He'd respond. "I couldn't find out exactly what it was he was trying to steal, but the code name went by 'Project: Ignition'. There should be a few files on the project in there." He'd whisper. Curious, Kiru would turn the various documents until she found the one marked with "P: Ignition." The document itself was unclear, obviously made so if it was stolen, the thief wouldn't be able to make out exactly what it was. It listed details about costs, and purpose. Her eyes widened suddenly when she read the file. "Conquer nations?" She'd ask, looking back up at the man. He'd shrug. "Judging by the cost, they must be putting a lot of effort into whatever it is. Be it some sort of war machine or spell." Kiru would then take a look at the document profile of one "Markov Shazinski." It had a detailed biography about his criminal past. Something Isayev Heavy Industries conveniently never saw. Apparently he used to be part of some sort of dark guild that went by "Heaven's Wrath." Their primary goal was to overthrow the government of Fiore. She'd look back up at the man. "Has Markov succeeded?" He'd shift uncomfortably. "That's why I came as fast as I could. The contents of the project was reported missing late last night... Markov with it. I'm not sure what he plans to do with it, but I do know where he'll be." She raised her eyebrow, eager to hear more. Uhh. Here." The man would pull out a large piece of paper from his coat and unfold it onto the table. It was a detailed map of the kingdom of Fiore. He'd point to a canyon not far from the capital. "If you look into the file deep enough, you can find the battle plans for a project of that size. Apparently if whatever this thing was supposed to make its way to the capital, this canyon would be the only route from Isayev Heavy Industries headquarters it could take." Kiru would take a detailed look at the map before standing. "Then we have little time. We have to find and stop Markov before he can turn this thing on the government." She'd say, placing the files back into the brief case. "Uhh. I wouldn't suggest going alone!"
A few moments later, Kiru would be standing at the bar, slamming the heavy briefcase on the wood. "Magna! You're going to have to take a break from the bar today! We have to save the capital!" She'd call out into the kitchen, assuming that's where Magna had been. It wasn't a random choice by Kiru however, to pick Magna. He'd proven his skills in the past firsthand to her, and she knew they already worked well together. Not only that, but it didn't seem like anyone else was around, and Kiru had little time. At the mention of "saving the capital" the entire bar went quiet and looked at her. Kiru simply looked back. "You'll probably hear about it soon."
