MASTER OF SHADOWS
There's 2 NPC to talk about this quest:
1. Nukemichi (Master Of Shadows)

I am not just a spy, I am also a master assassin but the soft-hearted Princess Miko has forbidden me to practice my deadly arts. It's a shame. I was once feared as much as the darkness itself, now I'm a glorified gossip-monger. Maybe one day she will see the need for my other skills.

Intro: Thank you for freeing me from that traitor. He may not respect his oath but I do. I swear that I will server Emperor Daisho and Princess Miko faithfully as their Master of Shadows. They will never know that we have switched and never know how close they were to disaster.
I am not just a spy, I am also a master assassin but the soft-hearted Princess Miko has forbidden me to practice my deadly arts. My... uh... predecessor had a problem with that but I'm happy to serve the princess and her father in whatever way I can be most useful. My oath is my life.
