History

The Ninja Programme was a secret initiative run by the British Government in the time of the Great War. By the time of World War I, the British and Japanese governments had become allies with the establishment of a programme designed to field an elite agent to be deployed in key locations. This operative was known initially as the Ninja who was a practitioner of ninjutsu and sent against enemy forces where he was deployed against Germany in 1917. Such was his skill that he managed to slay many targets despite the mounting advancements the Germans were making at the time thus saving many British lives. (Ninja-K v1 #1) In 1918, the Ninja was assigned a mission by his British handlers to deal with a new nerve agent that the German's were planning to deploy against Allied forces. (Ninja-K v1 #8)

After the war, the operative continued to operate for the British but MI-6 knew that there would come a time when Japan would recall their agent. Thus, they instituted the Ninja Programme whereby they asked Ninja-A with the training of his replacement who became known as Ninja-B who was the first British operative. Ninja-B was already a top level operative skilled in engineering and off-set any skills not taught to him by his mentor by using technology where he made use of a range of equipment in his arsenal. He was noted to had been active in London during 1934 where he engaged various threats against Britain. By this point, MI-6 sought to continue the programme and had Ninja-B begin training a new replacement but came to realise that this process was inefficient. Thus, they decided to formalise a training regimen with them hiring the services of a Japanese warrior named the Jonin who had no loyalty to his country and only served those that paid him. He was responsible for training the majority of British ninja operatives in the project. (Ninja-K v1 #1) MI6 later selected 16 qualified combatants trained in the arts of espionage that were to take part in the Programme. In the first six months, 5 were permanently injured with 3 killed and 6 washing out. (Ninja-K v1 #6)

Eventually, the Programme began to admit women into the ranks with this attributed not as a social awareness exercise but rather because their enemies began to use female operatives. This led to the Jonin training a black female agent who became known as Ninja-G who served for many years. During that time, she had met a man named Thomas who she got romantically involved with until he was killed with the agents handler telling her it was the work of a Russian operative. Ninja-G battled her Soviet counterpart and seemingly died eliminating her target though in reality she had gone into hiding to escape the Ninja Programme. (Ninja-K v1 #4) The Programme was suspended following the Ninja-J incident with new recruits and leadership deciding its future incarnation. Colin King was among the recruits at this point where he succeeded in becoming Ninja-K whilst another recruit was selected as his back-up as K-2. (Ninja-K v1 #6)

Overview

Skilled recruits that were found by MI6 that could not match their requirements were transferred into the Ninja Programme. Recruits told that among the students admitted that a fourth died or suffered permanent injury, another fourth failed, a further fourth begged to quit, and the final fourth being taken as support staff who aided the successful candidates. (Ninja-K v1 #4) Successful applicants required a delicate mix of patriotism and personal ambition. (Ninja-K v1 #6)

A division related to the programme was the Acclimation Bureau which was charged with ensuring that assets remained as assets. This included all types of assets which meant even operatives fell under this category. They kept detailed files on weaknesses in their agents that could be exploited in cases where they went rogue. Members of the bureau also removed distractions such as romantic relationships from their agents in secret in order to keep their operatives isolated and firmly within their control. Such attempts at ghosting these individuals could be anything simply from paying them off to sending a team to remove them whilst leaving behind letters that ended the relationship with the operative after which a cover story was put into place. In situations where an operative had a mental breakdown then the bureau had the individual taken to an MI-6 mental facility until they recovered to be back into the field. (Ninja-K v1 #3)
