A sea of quietness hushed over the Leaf District, resulting in the creation of an harmonic overture that engulfed the entire continent. This newly profound shared value of peace reduced the crime rate by a staggering rate. The Leaf District like many others were losing profits by not protecting protecting smaller counties Eventually the smaller counties subsided and was annexed by larger nations thus creating what we all know today as Districts. The Leaf District had lost funding needing to redirect their military funds into hospitable operations, hoping to make back profits by selling 'peace'. The thought of such sponsorship left a strong distaste. The catastrophic actions of the old world brought birth to a dramatically different world for shinobi. This world embodied the definition of a utopia. This world was meant to let shinobi die out, and this had not sat idle in Suzaku's heart. The kanji that symbolized peace was immediately pitted against the hottest flames known to shinobi. Man was despicable, an unworthy species that had not utilized their natural born right of chakra. Man sat idle, developed trades, skills, and acquired an education to create nothing but normalities. Shinobi was an advance form of evolution, and to Suzaku they were the new norm. Suzaku had not acquired the title as Hokage, to continue to expanding world peace. The title as Hokage, meant he was the strongest in District, this position was a testament to his strength.
Concerns of the future of shinobi spread like wildfire. The thought of their very existence had been a mutual feeling within each shinobi. This led to the creation of a formal union. Ninja representatives (Kages) from every District discussed and assigned missions. The Union also provided changes on how teams and organizations were formed, both integrating members from different villages to work under the same Umbrella. While Districts participated in the Union, they were hesitant to share their secrets, weaponry, and jutsu. They only offered up their strength in numbers, to ensure a steady flow of work. The Grass District had become the Unions center meeting place, supporting all Union related questions, organized missions, teams, and where all academy students resided.
" A sigh melted in the air. The rock beneath the glowing fragmented man became hotter every few minutes. The intense bodily heat that Suzaku emitted was unbearable amongst the working class people, this innate ability only had an off switch when visiting the populated public. The inactive man had slothful attitude due to lack of work that he needed to complete. Suzuaku also avoided reading status updates on the effectiveness of behavioral health programs and how it's reducing recidivism, this only supported the claim that ninjutsu was not needed to fix the world's problems.
The thoughts that lingered in his head sounded reasonable and was just to protect the livelihood for shinobi, but he knew it could give off the wrong impression. As self centered as those thought Suzaku was, he was very aware of how others viewed him and depending who, he did it purposely. With no global threat, it was the Kages job to mold and create one. "If we reminded humans how much they needed shinobi, we could retrieve more military funding. We could create a stronger generation of shinobi. We can install the power of hardwork and not depend on technology..." Suzaku played around with the sales pitch in his head, but everything he said he knew would be perceived wrong; so he sat quietly on the Hokage monument staring blankly into the sky.
