The history of the Ninja is hard
to trace. This is because there
were few, if any records kept of
its existence. Most of what is
known about the ninja is taken
from stories that have been
passed down from generation to
Nonuse ("the art of stealth") was
first introduced to Japan in 522
A.D. as a religion practiced by
priests. These priests were not
violent people, they were
"mystics" who gathered and
shared information for the ruling
classes. The ninja as we know
them were not introduced until
It wasn't until 645 A.D. that the
priests perfected their fighting
skills and made use of their
knowledge of nonuse. This was
because they found themselves
being harassed by the central
government and found in
necessary to protect
In 794-1192 A.D. the new
civilization flourished and with it,
a new class of wealthy, privileged
families. These families fought
with one another in attempts to
make or destroy emperors. The
need for spies, informants and
now assassins grew as these
families dueled for power. They
were suspicious and jealous of
one another and would resort to
any means necessary to
eliminate any possible threats.
Therefore, the practitioners of
nonuse were in great demand.
With this, the ninja was born.
