LETS WIKIATTACK!
Female ninja were classified as part of the kamae of sui (water) and were cultivate to manipulate energy through preying on increased feelings of emotional satisfaction; like the ocean, they would draw out, only to come back, like a wave at riptide, in unexpected ways. these women, or kunoichi as they were called, were given special training in psychological skills and intuition. Taught to manipulate men high-up in the enemy hierarchy, they were known to conceal blades inside musical instruments and sex toys. Shimma kunoichi, ninja family members, were trained as spies who were taught not to fall in love with their targets or lose sight of their ultimate goal after successful seduction... But also, head female agents were sent around the country to collect young female orphans, whom they raised with care. These orphan girls were forever indebted to their agents and would do whatever they were asked in terms of seducing men. Karima kunoichi were women who were not part of the clan but were temporarily hired as maids, mistresses, entertainers, fortunetellers, prostitutes, or artists. In contemporary times, female ninja often fulfill the same roles as men, working in security and law enforcement.

I suppose there are worse ways to die than in the arms of one of these lovely femme fatales... Sweating a little...

(Although, one would hope she'd at least allow me to get to second base before she stuck the knife in! OMG )

Buen día señor Genzo, hace algún tiempo estuve viendo sus trabajos y me parecen excepcionales. Su estilo es diferente a otros, es original. Por ello mismo quería preguntarle si hace trabajos encargados en el sentido de, enviarle un boceto muy sencillo de un personaje y/o describirle sus características, al cual usted pueda terminar de darle forma con su estilo de dibujo mucho más profesional. Le agradeceré mucho y estaré esperando su respuesta.

I am (kind of) a female ninja in training. Its really hard work to learn even the basics, but on the other hand it sure is fun to train with the other guys. If you really want to be, I recomment to sign in for training sessions - let nothing stand between you and your dreams! :) (Smile)

The only thing more awesome than Ninjas is female ninjas. Shame they don't have any superpowers in real life. Then again, I suppose they never needed to:)

She's a Karima Kunoichi.

They relied on their feminine charms to get close to enemies. They would pose as fortunetellers, maids, prostitutes, what have you.

I think they were once a real thing, back in the time ninjas were more common. And of course, there are many stories about them and such.

This is just...a kuniochi that can control water.
