Congratulations on your acceptance into the Demonic and Supernatural Investigation Bureau! As you know, this land is protected from otherworldly evil by the Lord's will, but there are some entities who find their way into the world by way of the corrupt and the soulless who pervert His will for their own gain. This is where you, as part of the DSIB, come in. Your role in the protection of this land and her people is important, and your contributions will be celebrated.
Please come to the attached address on the 27th of this month. You will meet the rest of your team there and be briefed on your first assignment. Be prompt, as your coach is scheduled to depart from the meeting location immediately after briefing.
