Hunter x Hunter: into the dark continent
The sky is a marvellous azure blue with not a cloud in sight, and the sun rising, red hot, above the horizon. To say it was warm would be an understatement, and the heat was only augmented by the fact that Lev was standing in the York New airship docks, where hot air and the stuffy smell of fuel pervaded the already stifling atmosphere. Lev had riffled through the CVs of all the applicants as he had the job of sorting out who to take on the mission. It shouldn't take long to filter out most of the garbage. Yet there were a couple that did catch his eye.
Lev had high hopes for this mission, it was his first time leading a team for such an extended period of time. He needed hunters whom he could allow a certain amount of autonomy. On top of this he needed a variety of hunters in order to tackle any situations they might come across.
Lev wiped his brow with a grimy handkerchief, pacing back and forth around the dock, in front of the airship which had been given to him for this mission, it was a large affair. A huge balloon, already filled pulled skywards, light blue armour plates adorned the ship and a vicious serpent statue was affixed to the bow.
Lev did not stop pacing or sit down. He had read that people who spend less time sitting down can expect to Iive up to five years longer. As the more prompt hunters began to arrive, Lev fished a notebook from his pocket and began making notes. It was a habit of his to properly document as much as he could.
Lev was eager to set off but his curiosity about the hunter's various abilities and techniques was keeping him from getting too bored. Besides he was interested to know how the hunters would act knowing how few of them would be accepted.
