Alternate Names {{{AltName4}}}

The Kunoichi seamlessly blends the magic of the Suju with traditional dark elven magic for a unique combat style. As a purely ranged class, she fights from afar with her a diverse set of fire-based AoE attacks capable of immolating multiple enemies within safe distance. These attacks are coupled with the Kunoichi's ability to increase it's potency by charging or be repeated by creating illusions.

  • At level 50, the Kunoichi awakens as an Izunabi. At level 75 the Izunabi awakens as a Shiranui
  • Her subclass cosmetic effect is a small fire ball that forms by her, and disperses when she tosses her kunai towards it.
  • Her 2nd awakening cosmetic effect has her do a quick spin and form a scarf of fire around her neck.

Becoming a Kunoichi

Even after Vallacre took the throne for himself, there were a few Dark Elves who
refused the calling of the new ruler and remained where they lived. They took in
new cultures and assimilated it with their own and created an isolated society of
their own. Out of them all, the Dark Elves that lived in the Shonan area had
the most unique ability. There are stories that these Elves are descendants of
the "Petrilisks" who were purged by the Elders 200 years ago, while others believe
they are the descendants of "Duramin", who formed a coalition with the smaller
tribes to rebel against Vallacre. However, nothing has been confirmed.
One thing is for certain, they have lived in Shonan for a very long time.

They were known as Kunoichi, a special group of Nen and Chakra users with
the ability to cast magic of the Dark Elves. As time went by, they combined
these skills to create their own unique technique called the "Ninpou." Through this
Ninpou, Kunoichis were able to obtain extreme power and influence in Shonan
But their reputation never exceeded that of a mere assassin.

As they kept on mastering their skills, a feeling of apprehension fell over them.
They did not want to continue living as assassins. As they agonized over this,
Shonan nobles recruited them and promised them a normal life in return for
their loyalty. Kunoichis took the job of escorting important delegates and infiltrated
enemy bases in order to collect information. As more nobles became aware of
the existence of Kunoichis, they fought each other in order to recruit them.
In the end, the number of Kunocihis possessed by a family became a standard
for measuring how powerful a family is. With this, Kunoichis were able to purge
their reputation of being merely known as assassins. However, their existence were
kept in secret since the nobles did not want to expose their own power.

Since the Kunoichis rarely exposed themselves to the public, they only existed in
rumors and myths. However, Shonan royal families and nobles fought secretly
in order to recruit every Kunoichi they can to their side.

The Thief must first reach level 15.

  1. Talk to Blacksmith Linus in Elvenguard.
  2. Clear Full Moon Thunderland.

Awakening as an Izunabi

Kunoichis often use Ninpou that uses fire but the fire used by them differs from
normal fires. It cannot be extinguished by normal means but it can be put out
by the snap of a finger from a Kunoichi. Their methods were so effective that
they created fear amongst their enemies while leaving no traces of evidence behind.

Even after they stopped being assassins, the Ninpou they used barely changed.
They needed intense training in order to wield fire that can deal massive damage.
Those who could not keep up or were not talented enough conceded. In a sense,
being proficient at handling fire is already proof that they have passed the test.

Out of those, the one who uses the most fancy and powerful fire technique is
called the "Izunabi." Named after a mystical creature from a legend, there aren't
many who can obtain this title but the amount of impact they had on Shonan was
enormous. They very first Izunabi nearly mastered all the Ninpou and gave
Kunoichis an option to live a life other than those of an assassin. Most of
the legends about Kunoichi that Shonan people talk about are the results of
Izunabi's achievements.

The process of selecting the one who will be the heir of the "Very first Izunabi" is
very complex. Even the most talaented one will not be chosen, if they do not meet
the qualities of an Izunabi. Izunabis have huge influence in the Kunoichi society,
this is why Izunabis may not exist for a very long time. Kunoichis also diligently
select an Izunabi to avoid less skilled candidates from dishonoring the name and
if an Izunabi becomes less skilled, they will lose their title. SO those who are
Izunabis can be considered the top of the Kunoichi.

The Kunoichi must first reach level 50.
