Ninja were considered eta , and therefore non-persons. It would not be a crime to kill a ninja. Once a servant learned how to watch and listen, they began to learn how to move at night without being detected. Once they learned how to move, they began to learn how to climb. When these reached the ears of the Emperor , he ordered the Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Hajioki to dismantle the network. Since his time, the ninja have been considered extinct in the Emerald Empire.

Instead, he planned together with the daimyo of the Shosuro , Soshi , and Yogo families, and decided to charge Shosuro Nodage with the mission of creating a false conspiracy that would divert the attention from the real operations of the Scorpion.

Nodage did his best job. That group called themselves "the ninja" which was most probably the first use of the term. According to the legend, the ghost of Bayushi Aramoro appeared to them, urging the group to gain revenge for his death and the destruction of the Scorpion spy network. The men faked their own deaths out of respect for their dead master, and then used dark magics to transform their bodies and souls into shadow itself. These "ninja" were said to be the power behind the wave of deaths that followed, of every person that was responsible for the death of Aramoro.

Each murder was specially gruesome, and no trace of the assassin was left behind. As soon as the illusion was gaining momentum, low-ranking Scorpion spies began dressing in black clothes and provoking "ninja sightings" all over Rokugan. While they would distract the credulous and superstitious people of the Emerald Empire, a more discreet assassin would stealthily complete the murder.

His head and hands were missing: the traditional punishment for those who were found guilty of practicing black magic. They did not bring members of the Great Clans inlo their ranks, but they had been known to recruit from the ranks of the peasant class. The Bayushi , the Goju and the Ninube family were the three families more related with Ninja. Thus, he assumed the assassins were called "ninja," a word he had never heard before.

However, the words that were actually spoken were " Niwatori ," or "Chicken", the nickname Shosuro used for first year apprentices, for the little egg bombs nageteppo they were for to carry. Ikawa misheard the phrase and the "ninja" were born. In their quests for the truth, the Kitsuki occasionally pick up the trails of ninja who do not wish to be traced back to their missions. As such, quite a few Kitsuki have been assassinated over the years, and each time, more Kitsuki fill their place to investigate the new clues and learn more about the ninja, although rarely who they are.

Many trustworthy sources claimed that the ninja indeed used the dark magics they were famous for, and many samurai dedicated their lives to uncovering the deeper truth about this conspiracy.

Among them was Kitsuki Kaagi , a magistrate who dedicated himself to the study of what really were the ninja. However, he disappeared without a trace before the Scorpion could learn what he was able to uncover. The only thing that was left behind was his journal. Only one Bayushi gained access to that journal, and he was maddened by whatever he saw. Luckily, Hametsu lived, and the mad attacker was killed on spot.

For this reason, ninja groups usually adopt their own, slightly different code of honor. These vary from family to family, but almost always involve some form of the Three Oaths, originally devised by the Scorpion: Secrecy: Ninja almost always operate under a cover identity or another. Often, even their own family does not know about their covert activities. This protects not only the ninja himself, but also his associates.

Loyalty: A ninja can only depend on his compatriots, and they only on him, making loyalty even more important than for normal samurai. He must also be prepared to deny allegiance to his lord when caught, and face the consequences alone. In addition, he must be ready to solve difficult tasks on his own, often at the price of his own life, without the prospect of eternal glory and veneration a bushi enjoys.

Few ninja decide to retire to a monastery, instead turning into advisors, low-risk yojimbo or other tasks where their experience is valuable, but their failing flesh not too much of a hindrance. Those that do sometimes become targets for their former brethren, who fear some of their secrets may be revealed to the outside world.

Their official term was " shinobi ", but they saw themselves as plain samurai. If their lord commanded them to dress in black, lurk in the shadows, and kill with poison, so be it.

Their honor was stronger for not questioning what must be done. As a matter of fact, they strongly resented the term "ninja" because of the Goju assassins who proudly bear the name "ninja". The Scorpion shinobi spent a large amount of resources to hunt down Goju and kill them. Ninja Schools The following is a list of the Ninja schools : Organization.
