Senkou’s attention focused on the Aviary, the tower at the center of the village where all the communications would be sent out by homing birds to their respective locations in other villages, as a bird was about to take flight it was immediately hit by an arrow. So the group had a sniper or two stationed to watch for any birds. Priority one was to take out the sniper or snipers, priority two was to ensure at least the major villages were contacted, priority three was then to start creating a path through the fires and the unknown armed individuals.
As the contrast between the fires and the rapidly falling night increased, Senkou was eventually able to find one of the snipers that was covering the Aviary. The man was using the roof of a nearby house, specifically he was behind the chimney that provided cover from a direct line of sight from the tower, but from a side view like Senkou, he stood out in the background of fire and smoke. He would wait for Keiji to appear and relay the current predicament and the information he had gathered so far.
