@Fire Tiger @iNFERNAL The Kingdom of Tardanzia was a small island nation that served as a rest stop for many travelers of the Grand Line. The island holds a busy port, a market, a cathedral, the King's castle, a Marine garrison, and a clocktower in the center of town.

The way the setting sun shined on the edge of the blade gave the scene a sinister feel. From this vantage place he had a good view of the entire town. He could see a Marine ship anchored just of shore, he could see the marketplace in the southwest getting ready to close, he could see the Marine garrison next to the eastern gate sending a small squad of marines towards the castle, and he could the castle on the western side of town where a group of armed guards were holding a gagged and blindfolded prisoner. This prisoner was the sole reason Kilij had to be in this town. Even from this distance he could easily recognize the man; Lionel Lupin underworld broker, smuggler, and slaver. For the marines he might be a valuable witness that could unravel a large chunk of the blackmarket, but to Kilij he was the reason he spent his childhood as a gladiator slave. This was his only chance to get revenge for himself and for his teacher, so he wont let anyone stand on his way. Kilij sheathed his blade, took out the town map from his bag, and traced a route with his fingers. [The city guards will transfer him to the marines in front of the castle. From there the marine squad will have to get him to port and into their ship. Meaning that my only chance will be to ambush them somewhere in between. I already have a trap set here on the clocktower which is the most obvious route, but I'll have to improvise if they take another route. I wonder what way they will go?] He fastened his hidden daggers under his clothes, hid his Tiger Mink features under his scarf and cloak, and got into position to pounce on his unsuspecting prey.
