Ninjutsu (忍術?) sometimes used interchangeably with the term ninpō (忍法?) is the martial art, strategy, and tactics of unconventional warfare and guerrilla warfare as well as the art of espionage purportedly practiced by the shinobi (commonly known outside of Japan as ninja).

While there are several styles of modern ninjutsu, the historical lineage of these styles is disputed. According to Bujinkan members, Ninja Jūhakkei ("the eighteen disciplines") were first stated in the scrolls of Togakure-ryū.[citation needed] They became definitive for all ninjutsu schools.[citation needed]

Ninja jūhakkei was often studied along with Bugei Jūhappan (the "eighteen samurai fighting art skills"). Though some are used in the same way by both samurai and ninja, other techniques were used differently by the two groups.

The 18 disciplines are:

   Seishinteki kyōyō – spiritual refinement
   Taijutsu – unarmed combat
   Kenjutsu – sword techniques
   Bōjutsu – stick and staff techniques
   Sōjutsu – spear techniques
   Naginatajutsu – naginata techniques
   Kusarigamajutsu – kusarigama techniques
   Shurikenjutsu – throwing weapons techniques
   Kayakujutsu – pyrotechnics
   Hensōjutsu – disguise and impersonation
   Shinobi-iri – stealth and entering methods
   Bajutsu – horsemanship
   Sui-ren – water training
   Bōryaku – tactics
   Chōhō – espionage
   Intonjutsu – escaping and concealment
   Tenmon – meteorology
   Chi-mon – geography

The name of the discipline of taijutsu (体術?), literally means "body skill" or "body art". Historically, the word taijutsu is often (in Japan) used interchangeably with jujutsu (as well as many other terms) to refer to a range of grappling skills. The term is also used in the martial art of aikido to distinguish the unarmed fighting techniques from other (e.g. stick fighting) techniques.

The following tools may not be exclusive to the ninja, but they are commonly associated with the practice of ninjutsu.

Attitude/Personality: She carries herself with the air of a Samurai but is much more then that. Cold ruthless when she wants to be. Not about to let anyone push her around and yet she's not hot tempered. More like cool dark and reserved much akin to the depths of night for which she was named. She can be as mysterious or as welcoming depending on how you fit in with her.

Images For character:


Background
History: Her mother was a Ninja and her father a Samurai so unlike many she grew up learning how to use not only both swords but how to evade dodge go unseen and even how to survive just about anything a master of stealth by the age of ten she works hard at keeping her head in all situations. While her sister was shipped off to the local temple to train not much of a warrior and prone to tears the sisters were separated for a while.

Her becoming a Ronin throwing away her Samurai training and ninja torture came about when her sister feel into danger having been claimed to have forsaken all of her oaths and done something she should not have done Mayo broke in and saved her from her fate taking her out on the road and traveling. Searching for the one who corrupted the temples view on Toki and to bring her back with her name cleared.

Neither can return to there home right now but if she clears Toki's name at least her sister can go home and live a normal life she however will never be able to return to a normal life using all of her Ninja and Samurai training to keep them out of harms way...........
