The Shinobi Clan is a ninja Clan consisting of Mobian chameleons led by the Bride of Constant Vigil.

History

Protectors of the Dragon Kingdom

The Shinobi Clan generally serves the forces of good, though they do not act openly. In the past, they attempted to police the Dragon Kingdom and oppose the less virtuous clans; however, due to their small numbers they were nearly eliminated. Following this, the clan adopted more indirect, secretive methods to ensure its survival, often working by observation and gathering intelligence. They maintained these tactics for generations; eventually the Brotherhood of Guardians, who watched over Angel Island and other areas of the world, caught the clan's attention. Feeling that this "powerful, species-centric" group was suspected to be dangerous, the clan decided to assign an agent to observe the active Guardian of the time so as to be aware of any worrisome decisions made.

Iron Dominion

After the Bride of the Four Houses brought an end to the Clan Wars slaying the leader of the Yagyu Clan and making it her own, Constant Vigil surrendered herself and her clan to the Iron Queen, who used them as part of the Iron Dominion's forces. Despite believing the Iron Queen to be evil, she did so because she feared open opposition would result in the destruction of the Shinobi. However, once it was clear that the Iron Dominion had lost most of its power, the Shinobi Clan felt it safe to break away and aid the opposition.

Trivia

  • Shinobi, or shinobi-no-mono (忍び) is the native Japanese word for a male ninja. The word is well known among Western audiences as the name of a series of video games created by Sega, each of which starred a ninja as the main character. (Shinobi stories based on these games appeared frequently in the UK publication, Sonic the Comic.)
    • Shinobi is also the Japanese word for a male ninja
  • Shinobi is also the name of an Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.
  • A chameleon bearing great resemblance to Liza was seen among the clan and it was heavily implied and later confirmed in a blog by current writer Ian Flynn that the chameleon was indeed Liza.
