Admiral Lindy Harlaown
Time-Space Administration Bureau
Command Vessel "Asura"

Admiral Harlaown:


I would have wanted to begin this letter with small talk, but I am afraid the time for that has long since passed. There have been momentous developments in the world I am in right now, and I am unsure whether to place our world within the scope of your Bureau's radar.

This incident is not unlike that of twelve years ago, where not only were your operatives were nearly deployed here during the Kyuubi attack, our status as an "Unregistered" world would be put in jeopardy.

I write to you now to give you my assurances that the crisis has been averted, and external intervention will not be necessary for now.

There are a few precautions we should take - I in my capacity as Shodaime Otokage, and you as Admiral of the TSAB - in light of future events, as follows:

- Other Hidden Villages are about to acquire Midchilda technology. I do not know who is responsible for this leak, but I am working to find its source and prevent them from accessing and using it.

- I've received a report from my right-hand man that a high-profile, long-term target of yours is now working as a jonin in Konoha. For all intents and purposes, it is unwise to mount an apprehension attempt for now, as the repercussions of such would not be beneficial. For now, I recommend continued reconaissance of Konohagakure.

- Your research notes on improving and upgrading the Cursed Seals of Heaven and Earth have gone a long way in my work, and for that I thank you. I also give you my thanks for curing a heretofore incurable illness of one of my subordinates.

Please take the time to make the acquaintance of your former superior Admiral Gil Graham, as he has collaborated with me in the past in ensuring that the TSAB surveillance of our world continues to go unnoticed.

One last word of advice: it will be around three years before the organization I infiltrated makes their move. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to stop this crisis without alerting our world of your presence, but we should take this time to come up with a discreet plan of intervention.

My next correspondence will come in a future time, as I am still recovering from a battle with a Belkan user - and you are correct, as usual - Belka-type magic is far more fitting for close combat than Midchildan-type.

This is all I can disclose for now, as my work beckons.

I shall send another item in six months or so, my schedule permitting.

Very truly yours,

Orochimaru of the Sannin

P.S. I have been making good use of the Device Admiral Graham sent me. Please send him thanks on my behalf.
