However, he accepts the job as a favor. For the mission, he is given a package and is not told about what is in it. He must pick it up in France and deliver it to someone in Germany. Soon after he picks up the package people start coming for him. Throughout the journey Jon must battle assassins and other people looking to stop him from completing the mission. After the first wave of attacks, Jon reconsiders the mission. Again, he reluctantly decides to keep going. Along the way Jon learns more about what the package is, and who wants it.
