"Being an assassin doesn't mean just willy nilly run around and kill people. You must have skill and a clear conscious. Remorse is a word that's foreign to us. You can't feel sorry for anyone you kill. You should only kill if necessary for the greater good. I may not entirely believe the same things as all of you, but please attempt to see your life in a little different view." Leon looks around at the crowd of people. "Is there any questions?"

One man stands up. "So what, are we just supposed to forget everything we've been taught?"

"I never said that. I just want you guys to not feel so shitty for failing every mission. Do you currently feel shitty about your last failure of a mission and attempting to take your anger out on me?" The man stands there for a few seconds processing what to say next. He eventually gives up and sits down in the old metal chair. Leon gets a grin. "One of your leaders have already chosen to follow my leadership. Jin has put her full trust in me."

A familiar female voice yells from the back of the room. "Damn right I have, Darling. The rest of you better listen to him."

A large amount of the crowd gets out of their seats and leaves the room. It goes silent for a few minutes. Az and Rahat stand up and walk to Leon.

"Both Rahat and I give our trust to Leon. He has proven he has the skill to take lead and end the Kiel reign." Az says putting his arms around Rahat and Leon. Everyone in the room leaves, leaving only Az, Rahat, Jin, and Leon.

"Well, looks like we have a long ways to go with just us." The smile on Leon has disappeared.
