The puppet Governor of Altay has become intoxicated by, and abusive of the power he's wields. In this remote province, it is easy to lose touch with Beijing, and it appears he has been given too much rope. My protege, Lian Xing, and I have been sent to hang him with that rope.
As this is Lian's final lesson, I will observe as she performs her first assassination.

When the mission starts, Lian radios Trinidad, telling her she is close to the insertion point. She is told to lower her voice since the guards are close, and does so. Lian is told that although she was top of her class, there is nothing to test agents like their first mission. Lian tells Trinidad she is near the power line and the guards can see her. Trinidad responds, telling her she has line of sight to the south patrols.
The mission briefing has a typo in the description: "and abusive of the power he's wields." A correction would be "and abusive of the power he wields."
