The purpose of a ninja is to infiltrate and kill people without being noticed.

To the world at large, the ninja do not exist. The tales of figures clad in dark clothing flying through the night are now the stuff of legend, and even then, the learned viewed such statements as little more than idiotic superstition, but the truth is more intriguing: the ninja still exist today, and they exist in you. Drawing upon the elements of nature, the ninja focus their skills into moments of supreme focus and clarity, aiding them both in and out of combat with quick maneuvers, deadly attacks, and preternatural celerity.
