Court. [Open-ish]

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

Court. [Open-ish]

PostPosted by Seijitsu Kodani » Sun Dec 04, 2011 7:08 am

The thump of the staff of the sergeant at arms, and also the head of the queen's personal guard, AMATSUTOME, echoed throughout the exquisitely painted conference room of Hyouden palace. The glittering chandeliers above the conference hall and the crackling fireplace counteracted the shivery snow outdoors. The portraits lining the walls of the revered politicians, aristocrats, shinobi and rulers of Yuki decorated the walls while a vaulted ceiling above allowed an uninterrupted view of the skies and snow above.

Heads of departments and branches of the parliament had begun filing in. Officials and warriors alike sat next to each other, provided with their own desk, their names before them with their titles. Each person settling into their personal nitch in the conference hall. Whispers and conversation echoed throughout the halls.

The double doors opened with Seijitsu's appearance through the doors, escorted by her armored guards. Quickly, she breezed through the crowds as they politely parted, as she made her way to her own personal seat at the opposite of many of the politicians. The heads of both White Ops, Black Snow and all departments were the closest to either side of her as the desks of each member made a perfect circle, with an empty space in the middle for presentations or speeches/debates to be made, furnished completely with paupits and chairs.

Taking the hand of a lady in waiting, Seijitsu slipped up into her high chair and a quiet slipped over the room. The tiny woman, with her delicate frame and soft eyes watched over the room carefully as the leader of the house opened with beginning notes.

"The Queen's Cabinet and the imperial Court of Snow is now convened into personal discussion on the interior means and habits of Yuki. We will be discussing a few issues today, ladies and gentlemen. Let us proceed."

Seijitsu lifted up her face as a figure from the rank and file rose "I request the floor."

"You have the floor." Seijitsu said, nodding her head in acknowledgement.

(I am just gonna ride this one out. You guys can post or take over the politician, but the main point is plot advancement here.)

"The Medical Sector Demands the floor."
"Indeed, proceed." Seijitsu nodded her head in the direction of the director.
"Thank you, Your Majesty." The politician nodded in the Queen's direction as he proceeded into the center circle of the conference room. Hair pulled back in a small bun, his bright blue eyes were striking against his oddly darker skin in comparison to his fellow Yuki natives.
He cleared his throat as silence fell over the room in respect. "We are entering into a new era of Yuki. A new age in which countless possibilities are available to us, what with a new leader and the introduction of steam technologies into the realm. Yuki... if I may say, has been rather... archaic in it's mechanisms as of late and if we are to proceed into this new era and hold our security in this realm, we should take full advantage of it's possibilities."
"Sir, I have to be blunt. Our funds are currently allocated towards the purchasing and introduction of steam technology." Ah-yo, Koji, head chairman of finances raised an eyebrow at the presenter.
"I have absolutely no need for extra funds, but merely government support, my good man. I wish to advance and make Yuki into a better medical environment."
Koji shook his head quietly, "Your words can be as flowery as you wish, good director, but our funds are-"
Seijitsu put up a hand to silence Koji, who was allocated to her side. "Please calm yourself, Ah-yo-san. I have reasons for putting him on the agenda." Koji quietly fumbled with a pipe in respectable silence. Seijitsu turned her head towards the speaking director again, "Please proceed."
"Thank you, your grace." The director nodded their head in her general direction. "Yuki is lead by one of the greater medical minds that it has born and raised, Seijitsu Kodani herself. It would seem absolutely fitting that, as a country with a medical specialist as it's leader, that this country become a scholarly destination for medical trainees from around the world. It can offer the best knowledge, the best teachers, the best tools, all for the advancing of society."
"Indeed, but how can this be achieved without extra funding from the government?" A member of the board of finances spoke up.
"It's utterly impossible to get this advanced technology, scholarship and knowlegde into Yuki without it costing money."
"That is where the concept of private funding comes into play." Seijitsu spoke up, her face solidified against the hard stares of her cabinet.
"What do you mean, my lady?" Koji turned to face her, unsure of her intentions of the statement.
"It is rather simple. I have quite a few business connections in combination with my own personal monetary funding. Of course, my personal fund has been rather... decimated by the recent tragedy caused by the Yuki Ball, but I am still in sufficent means to help support the medical program."
"Your majesty, I doubt that you have enough funds to help start up a nation-wide program of medical advancement." Koji shook his head slowly, but kept his eyes on her.
"Indeed, you are correct, I don't."
A few confused looks were exchanged amongst the politicians.
"But I am not paying for a nation-wide program of medical advancement, I am supporting a local program of medical advocacy."
The Medical director spoke up again, "I have to explain a bit further into the whole purpose of my being here. Seijitsu herself would like to start her own personal college of medicine here in Yuki, taking on a few students with the most potential under her wing and teaching them the medical arts."
"Well, if I may be rude, but her Majesty has a country to run, people to house, clothe, feed and lead. She has no means of time to take care of all of these people and run a medical college."
"It is there that Mr. Miyasaki comes in." Seijitsu looked toward the presenting director, a smile spreading across her face. "Mr. Miyasaki will actually be handing down most of my medical information and training down into these students while I essentially pop in to advise them on the arts and help them to grow in personal affairs."
"How does this go to the advancing the medical scneario of Yuki?" A politician asked, tilting his head to the side.
"We will be doing this only as a start. Indeed. We will take on students from each country, give them the best education possible in private and send them back home with the knowledge they have learned from here."
"Isn't that... kind of stupid?" A bald-headed senator raised an eyebrow and his voice over the crowd.
A rumbling of voices broke out from around him. Seijitsu banged a gavel, silencing the voices almost immediately.
"Well, if you think of the in the now effects, maybe..." Mr. Miyasaki put his jawbone on his knuckles in thought. "...but we are not looking for the in the now effects, we are looking to plant seeds and invest in the future."
Seijitsu tilted her head to the side and closed her eyes dreamily, as if almost bored, "Hence, explaining why we will take the best potential students from each village and insert them into a rigorous, in-depth training regiment of the highest possible quality and equip them with the best knowledge possible under both Mr. Miyasaki's and my own direction." She sighed, "With this program, we will spread more knowledge around, yes... that could be considered a loss of monopoly, but instead... we will use it as Public Relations in the means that we will be spreading advanced doctors and their minds across the world in hopes of easing the pain of disease and saving countless lives from unfair and pre-mature deaths."
"With this reputation, we will continue to take in students, and if all goes as planned, Yuki will gain a respectable reputation as holding onto a mass amount of medical knowledge and a certain capability in the technologies. This, of course, will be an experiment."
"So... government monies and backing will be thrown away on an experiement that might not even work?!" The bald-headed senator roared over the crowds
"There have been government experiments that have been holding the seal of their countries that have done far worse." A mousy doctor with thick glasses chirped in, adjusting the lapel on her suit.
"It isn't even government funding, my good comrade." Mr. Miyasaki chuckled. "That's the beauty of it all, once we get enough clout, so to say, we can build the larger facilties and take in more students and develop a greater system with the best technology for all students, making it into a large university. These of course, being long-term plans and not to be fulfilled completely within the next year or so."
"It will take a long time, yes..." Seijitsu opened her eyes, resting her face on her index finger-tip, "But, with correct planning and wisdom, this goal for Yuki could be well achieved within a few years."
Silence fell over the room as those words left Seijitsu's lips. Lingering for a second, she sighed. It would be an interesting court session indeed...

"A few years, of course... this is merely a seedling. Something that might not even come to fruition during my kage-term." Seijitsu sighed, lifting her head up to the vaulted ceiling. "As this conversation has had quite a lot more debate in it than I would like... I am going to temporarily halt further discussion on the topic of medical intership programs and progress in Mother Snow for now and proceed onto another creation of ours that has finally been birthed."

Being handed a file, she opened it before her on her desk as she turned over to a figure stepping out from her nearby side.

"I believe it is time we unveil our newest sector of public defense to the country." Yukihime's soft eyes drifted over the room carefully observing each of the faces as they checked up and down the silent figure at her side. "So much has yet to be said, but these matters are best said by the appropriate individual." Her eyes turned over to the being at her side.

"The floor is yours, my trustee."

"Thank you, your Majesty." Fubuki Kodani stepped out in front of Seijitsu. He had on light, silver armor that bore the symbol of Yukigakure. A sword strapped to his waist. Tall. Bright blue eyes. Blond hair. And, as part of the new "ruling clan" of the Mother Snow, Kodani, he was recently appointed to the rank of sannin.

In other words-- he was one arrogant son of a bitch.

"I am Fubuki Kodani, sannin of Yukigakure, and I will try to make this brief for you all." There had been, and were still, many issues to discuss. They'd be here for days if too much detail went into this. There would be separate meetings later on. "As you know, our village and country are in a very fragile state. Hell, we have always been. It wasn't until recently that we took charge and reclaimed control in our village. Not even days later we were attacked by foreigners at the Yuki Ball." "Supposedly" attacked by non-Yukians, but he wouldn't mention this. "Outside of the Land of Snow the rest of the countries are in chaotic states. The Hidden Sand recently fell, and the whole Wind Country is... madness! And that madness will only spread."

Fubuki slammed his hand on the table by his side. "We need to do something to protect ourselves. We must focus on us first. We have been too unprotected, too lax, too open to people from other nations. It just cannot happen anymore-- not with the way the world is now." He looked to Seijitsu for a moment and then back to the small crowd of people. "So we've decided to unveil our "program" a little early. White Ops, a mass new protective force devoted to keeping Yuki, the Land of Snow, and all its inhabitants safe. A big part of this new force will be to put stricter rules on foreigners coming into our country. Without special permission, they cannot enter our land. We also must protect ourselves in the event of war. The Yuki Ball is a clear example of this, we were far too unprepared."

Holding up three fingers, Fubuki counted off them. "There will be three sections to White Ops. The Public Force; it will act as a protector group for the village of Yuki and its immediate borders. Keeping its citizens safe. I shall be leading this group." One finger was put down. "The next group is the Naval Force; as we are surrounded by mostly water, we are leaving ourselves exposed by not improving out efficiency off land. Work on this purpose has already begun, our new steam technology is being dedicated toward creating advanced ships capable of moving easily through icy waters. For this we have Koyuki Hyouzan to lead the force."

"Hello." The young lady gave a wave from her seat at the front of the crowd.

With one finger left, Fubuki spoke again. "Lastly we have the most important force, the Guardian Force. This will require the most man power and will incorporate shinobi from all over the Land of Snow. This is our main militia and groups of the force shall be placed all across the country. Keeping unwanted people out, securing the citizens of the Snow Country, and providing aid wherever they are needed. Ooyuki Yajin is at the head of this massive force."

"Howdy," the large man said, nodding his head. He also sat at the front of the crowd, as he and Koyuki were already both long standing sannin.

He exhaled, both hands by his side now. "It's a big project, and we'll need a lot of people. Both non-shinobi and shinobi alike. But it will work. It must work. When academy students graduate, they become everyday shinobi. White Ops is going to change this, it will be very open to any who wish to join so long as they promise to be loyal to their cause. Economically, the country is doing well. So finances are not a problem, as any who join will be paid well. Ideally, we would like to see three-quarters of all academy graduates part of White Ops, and any healthy, well-trained, citizen." Murmurs throughout the crowd had finally begun. "We need this sort of patriotism from our people. This is how we will get through our situation and better ourselves; before its too late. White Ops will begin recruitment tomorrow. And training starting next week."

It didn't seem to be up for debate, this decision had already been set in stone days ago. With a bow, Fubuki stepped back to Seijitsu's side. "Thank you for your time, and keep a look out."

Seijitsu the wooden staff of the gavel within the confines of her fingers quietly as Fubuki took his seat. There was a soft murmur throughout the chambers. Senators and Nobles raised their voices in soft spoken commentary. It seemed there was a bit of division in the houses of Yuki. Secrecy and division were two things that left a nation's government perturbed when they came to light. It was Seijitsu's job to keep this country unified towards the goals of peace, prosperity and safety. She knocked her gavel upon it's stand at her desk to clear the murmuring among the elected and selected officials.

Looking around, there was silence over the room as they respected her. Thankfully. She appreciated the respect in her name.
"To clarify, my people. This project was something that was quickly undertaken at the time of my coronation as a means of protecting this country further and making it a special place, where people can live their lives at peace and go forth without worry of threats."

"It is because of the possibility of leaked information and endangering our people's safety that this project was kept in the utter-most of secrecy among the chosen officials whom would be involved in it's operation." Seijitsu lightly glanced over to the direction of Fubuki. "If someone were to be a spy... and to be honest, this is a possibility amongst shinobi, and were to leak White Ops information to another country before it came to proper fruition and protective ability it would leave Yuki in a rather tender and vulnerable state." Lips parting lightly, she took a pregnant pause to allow the words to marinate amongst the audience.

"Our protection of this information was not because of lack of trust or otherwise amongst our elected officials, but for the mere safety of our country. It can be stated that this project has full transparency and those who wish to see any court documents amongst the Queen's Cabinet pertaining to the initiation of this project will be gladly given so."

Seijitsu looked around the room again. There was silence. "Other than that, I will hold all information on Yuki's White Ops for availability through your assistants and secretaries of state and districts. The information is already being transported to them as we speak."

As Seijitsu said those words, servants appeared throughout the courtroom, dispersing fully-edited and organized guides explaining the founding purposes and information of White Ops. "Please allow yourselves time to read these documents in depth.
On this topic, I move to the next topic of early dismissal on the agenda on the grounds of allowing the senators and representatives to read through these documents and gather their minds. Do I have a seconding of this motion?"

"Aye." A noble said, raising their hand. "Seconded."

"All in favor?"

The representatives pressed a respective button at their desk signalling their agreement. Their votes were quickly tallied by the system.

"All opposed?"

Lights popped up showing disapproval.

Looking down at the numbers, Seijitsu nodded to herself in thought. "Motion carried, early dismissal is approved. Court is adjourned until tomorrow at the time of 0900 hours. Dismissed."
