Sister, I have finally arrived in Kiel. I've already met with with the Iris Brotherhood and gained their trust. I know you know very little of this place, so let me explain. Kiel is a large continent, surrounded by the ocean on all sides. Kiel is also the last name of the royal family. Its fairly flat with hills and trees sprinkling it. Near the center of Kiel is the capital city. It is a heavily fortified city with walls and armed guards surrounding it. Kiel use to be extremely peaceful, up until a group called the Iris Brotherhood decided they wanted things changed.

Kiel is ran by a monarchy, with the same family controlling it for the past four hundred years. This is because the people believe the family has special powers. Every time the oldest daughter reaches 20 years of age she is sacrificed in order to "restore beauty to the land." There was a very small resistance to what they were doing. These people joined together to create the Iris Brotherhood.

The Iris Brotherhood has attempted to stop these sacrifices every time they occur but the defenses are too powerful. They don't have the technology or training like the Kiel guards but are still able to survive. The Iris Brotherhood is ran by a group of master assassins, each with their own talents.

We have Rahat, a skilled hunter, who believes in knocking out instead of killing. Kress, a rich noble, who believes in charity, but takes it back swiftly with "interest." Jin, a seductive dancer, who believes in distraction with a touch of poison. And last but not least, Alzeech, or Az, as he likes to call himself is an ex-general of the Kiel guard, who believes offense is the best defense.

I'm very excited to be joining these people on their attempt to end these needless sacrifices. Hopefully with my own skills and knowledge I might be able to teach them a thing or two.

In case you don't hear from me within the next few weeks, I love you. Please stay safe.

Your loving brother, Leon.
