At the heart of the great Snow Village sits Hyouden Castle, a great fortress chosen to be the Yukikage's fortress. Archeologists discovered its ruins almost by accident while the construction of the new ninja village was already underway. Reconstruction was approved by the Emperor for use by the Yukikage, and now the refurnished building stands as a testament to the marvels of old and new engineering combined in its architecture.Kage: Kuroudo Hyuuga - Kiyoshi

Cream undershirt.
Sierra brown tie.
Pitch black coat and pants.

His paper-pale bone like fingers grasped his tie, fidgeting it about and making sure all was set. With no wasted movement and precision, he retrieved what appeared to be a cigarette of some sort, no doubt rolled by him prior with the very same precision. Two fingers used to retrieve it. Two fingers used to hold it was he held his thumb to his mouth, pulling back his lips.
Biting down on the tip of his nail, with a hard flick of his thumb, it popped off and fell into the ground. The gooey flesh where the nail was lit itself on fire, the index and ring finger swirling the cigarette masterfully to light the desired end. Pressing his tongue to his thumb, with a single lick it had been repaired, the nail resting on the floor between his shoes vanishing from existence. No blood spilled.
--

Another drag, just another. Flicking the roach-like butt of the cigarette onto the ground, it vanished as it touched the pristine floor of his carriage, coinciding with his arrival.

Being assisted out of the carriage by his valet, as he stepped out of the carriage, it too vanished. As his valet handed him a briefcase, he too vanished. Taking slow, persistent, perfectly paced and measured steps, he walked towards the door of the palace. His valet had dealt with getting him this far, passing the guards up to this point. He was told he would be fine from here on out, that the Yukikage herself would attend to him from hereon out.

He had a meeting with her, of course. A salesmen of a very large however expansive and old technological firm from the far east, the meeting was supposed to be about an exchange of a huge portion of their steam technology in exchange for shinobi backing in a conflict they had with a rival company to the even further east. That was the motive Sei was to hear of, anyway.

"Welcome, sir." A soft pair of words floated across the air as they left the blood-red lips of Yukigakure's queen. The guards standing at either side of the door were in their usual regalia, standing in white, grey and beige uniforms with fur-covered collars. The queen herself was in a tight, taffeta gown of pure black with one shoulder. The silhuette hugging her curves up until the bottom of her hips, flaring out into a full, billowing skirt.

Curtseying before the individual before her. "I hope your ride here was pleasant." Smiling, and taking him quickly towards the private chambers that had been pre-ordained solely for such important discussions. uided him through gilded and marble floored halls. Within a few seconds, the two had arrived privately in a spacious chamber. The floor was a large scaled map of the world, with up to date markings of the world. Statues resembling kages, ships and faceless soldiers were lined up uniformly in the corner.

A square wooden table of a dark polish contrasted the nuetral sand colored stone that made up the walls. To the back of the room was a large wall of a window with various iron workings in the form of briar roses, allowing a pristine view of the palace garden from behind. Snow falling silently outside of the glass while a fireplace crackled in a low murmur to the left of the entrance.

Waiting for her guest to seat himself, she sat down at one of the upholstered armchairs.

"So, my good sir, what my I do for you?"

He followed in her wake. He was not one to start the explosions he benefited from.

Taking a seat near hers, he set his briefcase down onto a table set between them but not directly so. Like the business he was supposed to be making happen, it was not at the forethought of his mind.
"Before I begin the business I was sent to do, I must express my condolences for the losses suffered at the Ball." His voice was hard, like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a [steampunk] car. Maybe it sounded insensitive, but it was hollow to it's very core. This individual had no soul.

His fingers, with expert precision, old and wrinkled, undid his briefcase and extracted several checks. "My superiors wish to offer these as a gift of good will, money is no replacement for what was lost but it can help soothe the catharsis." Made out from an international bank, these checks more then thrice covered all monetary expenses of the ball and then some.

He had no smile, his old, toadlike, wrinkled face seemingly had no lips. Almost dead, blue, empty eyes watched his fingers as he pushed the pieces of paper across the table to be closer to Sei -- to directly hand them to her would be tactless.

Lowering her head in a softened bow, she put a hand up in quiet refusal. The thought of Osae's death inserted itself into her mind. Her lips curled up softly into a smile.

"Your consideration speaks volumes." Seijitsu smiled, nodding towards the ckecks on the table in mere acknowledgement. Her eyes closed for a second, "Yuki is under my fortune. I have paid for the entire ball out of my personal account. It is appreciated." Softly speaking, she looked towards the older man's brief case.

Crossing her legs beneath the table, Seijitu put her fingers up to her face, sweeping out one of the strands of platinum blond hair out of the view of her face. The lightly waved strands parted obediently. Lightly, the signet ring of Magdalene's luster became apparent.

"I am ready for your proposition, sir."

He had remained still as if dead, not noticing a single thing. Infact, to be honest, this body was blind and deaf. It sensed what it did through a manner beyond what the Kodani queen could possibly understand. Still, it observed with it's own unique sense all that followed form it's actions. It's? It wasn't truly gender-ized, even if it did present itself in the form of man. "My constituents are worried about what is happening, Miss Kodani."

He closed his hands into small fists. His old, white, pale, atrophied flesh made balls instead of true fists. It looked like dough.
"We are in the business of manufacturing and selling. We produce a product you are very much interested in, and as service providers, as ninja are, I think a trade is very possible. We are far away, but we are more then willing to afford room, board, transport, and all manner of care for those you choose to send. Specifics can be discussed at your discretion."

--

A crow tapped on the windows.
No way in? It tried another. And another. It was persistent.
Schlick a kunai came from the sleeve of a guard. The bird carried a package and was about to scratch very important glass. A second kunai was sent and pinned the package by it's bow-like rope tying against a wall.

Ten minutes later, he brought it to the queen hurried. Her meeting was likely important, but she needed to know of this. Within, contained a lock of hair that belong to Osae herself, in addition to a necklace the queen had given her daughter. Further, a note;

This letter is nothing but a method to alert.
Know that the Ball is not the end; more is to come.
Whether or not your village is prepared for what it had come to start
is not a matter for me to deal with. As queen, it is your problem.
Osae was simply a pawn. I fashioned her into existence
and I can fashion this country to ruin.

Seijitsu gazed down at the letter quietly. Her dark blue eyes running over the text again and again. Her blood red lips curled inward nervously.
A sense of fear washed over her, not because of the fact that this was an omen of things to come, but more so the fact that this was a precursor of worse things for her people if she did not apply herself to the job correctly.

Also, something ached inside of her as she read over the name Osae again and again. A tiny tremble occured in her lips as she tried to maintain proper decorum before her guest. It couldn't be that Osae was nothing more than... a shadow? A toy?

Something so pure... was a lie. It was true, Osae wasn't the perfect child in the sense that she grew faster than her own competent medical knowledge could properly explain. Osae wasn't very talkative with her "mother" either, but Osae was still precious to her mother. And despite the lack of any formal birthing, Osae was still her daughter in the end.

It was mainly the appearance and usage of her name on that peice of paper that made Seijitsu shake subtly.

"Sir, please forgive me, but a matter of absolute urgency has arised. If we may, I will reimburse all expenses to your company for your time, but we will not be able to make a solid confirmation on this deal as of yet. I welcome you to be in the care of my people, but for now, I must take my leave. Again, apologies, good sir."

Lifting herself up from the table, a shinobi quickly took her hand and escorted the queen out of the room.
