Nightshades

From Human Sphere

Background

Richard Otunga, former director of SWORDFOR's SpecOps department, is really into Ninjas and Hassassins, and decided that O-12 should have its own combat stealth unit that could stand up to other Human Sphere stealth assault teams. He tried recruiting Hassassins and that went nowhere. So, he deployed Psi-Cops to find a Ninja. That would be good enough. They would be another off-the-books unit with no official name.

They found Master Jun Mizushima of the Kurokawa Clan, who was to be a teacher for the Nightshade unit. Unfortunately, other Ninja murdered him before he could begin teaching. Luckily, they were able to use one of his disciples - Kevin Zheng, who merged everything that the late Mizushima knew with Chinese Baguazhang martial arts, and together they created the "belladonna" martial arts method.

Nightshades are normally used in close-in operations, but they are occasionally deployed on missions of a purely covert nature. They compete with the [Lynx Unit]] when it comes to the (very rare) assassination missions, and the Razor Unit for special operations. However, the Nightshades main remit is eliminating criminal enterprises; their specialty is bullying poorly trained and lightly equipped units using stealth and subtlety.


Razors do recon, Lynx kill, but Nightshades avenge.
