The Ninja is an expert martial artist and a master of ninjitsu.
Teleportation: The Ninja can disappear in a cloud of smoke or just fade in the shadows, teleporting himself (and, if desired, others) for up to several miles.
Possession: The Ninja when trapped in the Sacred Volume could inhabit the body of the owner of the Book and turn it into a replica of his own, complete with weapons and ninja uniform.
Weapons: The Ninja is an expert with the weapons of a Ninja. Typically he carries a sword.
The man now only known as the Ninja was the greatest samurai of his generation in medieval Japan. He was called death by his contemporaries. His cruelty and his taste for casual murder eventually made him a criminal. Though he killed all who tried to arrest him, he was now a Ronin.
Drifting, the killer eventually found a new master, the powerful sorcerer Master Khan. Khan convinced the samurai to turn to the “dark arts” of the ninja, and then imbued his servitor with actual mystical powers.
