Mato Kurio smiled as she sat down, looking out over the clearing. She was near Kokoro village, just on the outskirts looking out over the sea. She loved this view, it was one of her favorite to draw.

"I know I'm a lesser demon and I usually like this stuff but this, this is a massacre. Who would do something like thi-" Mato stopped dead, looking at the body in front of her.

"Who would have done something like this to a Mystic? Well, looks like my sketch time will have to wait. Looks like I have some news to spread." Mato stood up and looked around the ship one last time, her eyes scanning over the remains. "I just hope that I'm not accused of this since I was the one who found this wreck..."
