She bows in return. "Thank you."
Moving to one side, she takes up a bit of space as she carefully puts down the box she had been carrying. She then sets out a small incense holder and stick of incense. Pausing a moment she smirks slightly, picks up the incense and brings it to a lantern in the dojo, lighting it and then returning and kneeling before it and the then carefully opened box that displays the reverently stowed armor named "Iron Scales of the Carp."
What follows then is something very few of this generation have seen before, and not been a Hida. A Hida-trained Crab's ritual of putting on heavy armor. There is far more prayer then many might expect from a Crab. Careful reverence and thankfulness to all those who have worn the armor before, the smith who made it and the kami that dwell within.
As she slowly assembles the armor upon herself, she kneels in prayer as each piece is worn. It serves many a purpose, both practical and spiritual, but the iron of the armor clanks a bit more as she slowly dons "her shell." She'll be at it for quite some time while others continue with their training, as various bits and pieces need adjusting to insure proper wear and movement, despite their heft and solidity.
