“One kills a man, one is an assassin; one kills millions, one is a conqueror; one kills everybody, one is a god” — Jean Rostand


Overview

AKA: Assassin
Ninjas are stealthy murderers, creatures who lurk in the shadows, leaping out unseen to execute their enemies. They are illusionists and decievers, throwing their targets off guard, diverting their attention, and then attacking when they are least defended. They are a back-row job with powerful melee abilities that they must work to bring to bear.
