Fictional biography

Skycrow Diary Entry # 14502

After several months of training, all three of my apprentices are performing very well. Each one of them has shown to carry different talents. The natural leader, Back-105, can always give precise and correct orders to his peers.

Shred-125, a silent warrior, can execute whatever mission is given by the leader, and his combat skills are very impressive.

However, among the three, Bomb-271, is different. He is a born tactician. He can always come up with plans and strategies, which I would never expect. I know he has certain level of telepath ability. I believe under proper training, he can learn to control that power and become a more powerful ninja master than myself, one day.

The time has finally come! Tomorrow I will give them a final trial. If they are successful, they will be able to weld the power of the elemental forces, which will make them a true ninjutsu warrior.

My revenge on that traitor Stardust can finally begin soon.......
