Takeuchi Naoko had the wonderful imagination to create these gentlemen and their companions. I've just decided to borrow their look alike doubles and give them scripts.

All is Lost

Zoisite flipped through the reports one last time. Shutting the folder, he leaned back in his chair and stared off into space. 'Pirates. That is all it can be. Boats mysteriously disappearing, small pieces of the wreckage washing up on the shore months later, no survivors, and the cargo ending up on the black market.'

Rubbing his eyes, he wished he was wrong. He wished that the folder would vanish. 'No survivors. Not one of the crewmen are ever seen again. That is alive or dead. Not one. And that has the families' hopes up.'

Looking at the innocent looking folder. Zoisite picked it up and shoved it into his briefcase. 'A deceptively simple packaging for a horrendous group of people.' And he knew that they had to be horrendous. Most pirates don't destroy their prey.
