Breathing out a sigh as he walked through the doors that opened on a motion sensor, their mechanical sound ringing in his ears, Lima's eyes went right to the man who he had been looking upon as a ruler, as a leader, for as long as he could remember. His footsteps echoed off the walls of the medium sized room, four screens hanging above and behind the black and white desk that the man before him sat behind in the seemingly cushioned chair. "Ah, Liam. Always a pleasure to see you. I do hope that you are enjoying the powers of your higher position." When the man spoke, Liam's body stiffened as he straightened out his back and put his shoulders back. The deep, scratchy tone that came from the man always sent a shiver down his spine, however he did nothing about it, would do nothing about it other than listen to the man. After all, he had saved his life when he was younger, when he was so confused as to what and who he was. Yet he could still not help think that there was something wrong with the man and his ways, with the words that he would preach to the people of Houou of the visions he would have, visions he had claimed to come from the past, and the words of the Legendary Pokemon Ho-Oh itself. Sometimes, Liam wondered whether or not the man was being completely truthful, though he never said his reservations aloud. No, he would never do such a thing if he knew what was better for him. Shifting his eyes down to look at his side, it was always a reassuring sight to see Casimir walking and standing by his side. With her head always held high, with her eyes always looking to where they needed to be, there wasn't a doubt in anyone's mind that this Absol was the closest he was to a Pokemon. She tilted her head to the side and looked up, glancing at Liam before she turned her head straight and stopped, along with Liam, as they made it to the front of the desk. The man behind the desk rose his brows before a smirk graced his lips, his hands folding in front of himself as he rested them against the desk. Liam bowed, nearly kneeling down as Casimir did the same thing. "I do hope that you calling me is not for ill news," Liam stated, picking his form back up as he left his hands dangle by his side. Small sounds of beeping came from the large monitors above, one showing the map of the Johto region, one showing a diagram of all the interconnecting networks the organization had settled around the region, one showing video surveillance of the cameras that weaved their way through the building that they kept themselves in, and the other showing various other locations and images that Liam did not care to try to learn about. "No, no ill news to be brought upon in this meeting. Sit, please." Isaiah, the 'King' of the Houou's, motioned with a hand towards one of the two chairs that sat in front of the desk, to which Liam took the seat, Casimir stationing herself right beside Liam. Once Liam was sitting, Isaiah turned his chair around to put his back to the other man, his hand reaching for the remote and then clicking on a button that changed the images on all of the screens, causing Liam to raise his brows as the image of a boy, perhaps in his early twenties, appeared on screen. "As you know, we have been searching for years a way, a key if you will, to open the gates to the true land that we, the Houou's, are destined to be in, as well as the gates itself. Years ago, the legendary settlement civilized themselves in an ancient realm that kept them protected and that kept them in Ho-Oh's good graces, so that they could continue to communicate with it to keep the world locked in the way that they wanted it to be. But of course, as you know, the land had been taken from our ancestors because people believed that we had too much power, that our ancestors were doing no good when it was them who kept the world in tact as we should do now." He clicked the remote again, changing the picture to the same boy, except this time the shirt that he wore had been risen from him moving a certain way, a blue marking appearing on his back, words of their ancient language seeming to be on there. Liam furrowed his brows at the sight as he leaned furrowed his brows, leaning forward in his seat to get a closer look. "But finally, after years of searching, we have found our key. This boy is the thing that will lead us to our land and bring us back to Ho-Oh. The Legendary Pokemon has even told me as such, has showed me images of this boy in my mind. There is no doubt that he will be the one to open our land back for us, and we must take it. And that is where you come in, Liam." The wonderment from the man's tone was gone as he turned to look at Liam, clicking on the remote again to show another picture of the boy, this time of what he looked like, what his face was. "I need you to find this boy and bring him back to us; I feel as if you are the only one able enough to do this job. "The last place he had been seen in was Azalea town, which is where these pictures of him had been taken. It will be a few days journey for you to get there and to come back, and he may have even left the town, but, hopefully, he will be around the general area. But bring him back, quickly, and listen to Ho-Oh's words; it will lead you in the right direction." Liam nodded his head, and after being given additional information about the target, such as make sure he brought the boy back in one piece and unharmed he grabbed onto the folder that had information of the boy, along with his picture inside of it. He agreed to the conditions, listening to the man say that he wanted him to bring along one of the lower ranks of the organization, saying that it would give them more experience. Oh, how Liam wanted to not agree to those terms, but he nevertheless did, and after walking out of the office with a bow, he headed in the direction of the common area where many of the members loitered around when they didn't have any duties to attend to or any missions to accomplish at the time. His eyes scanned the area, listening to the buzz of the talking of people as some turned to look in his directions as the sliding doors closed behind him and Casimir, some of them instantly looking away, others giving him quiet nods. Now who to bring along? A lower ranking one, one that, if something were to go wrong, no one would probably care was missing. Someone who he could use as bait if he so needed to, which in a case of capturing of male could prove to be very efficient unless he wanted to use just brute strength. When his eyes finally landed on someone he narrowed his eyes, sighing as he pinched the bridge of his nose. What was her name? "Candace Baron," he spoke out, his voice ringing above the noises of the others.
