The ninja originated around the late 13th century and were responsible for invading enemy territory, arson, destruction, night raids, ambushes, and intelligence gathering.

Since the most important thing was to inform the lord of the enemy’s situation, it was necessary to avoid combat as much as possible and return alive.
