"...Ninjak is also a genius technologist and an Olympic-level athlete.”

-Valiant Universe #1, Page 8

Ninjak is thought to be immune to modern torture and interrogation techniques. He appears to lack any real emotions and any he does show are considered to be purely artificial. He is also noted as having incredible pain tolerance.

“Subject is not susceptible to torture and interrogation techniques due to his inability or unwillingness to tell any simple truths."

[...]

"Psych profiles are inconclusive but reports indicate a lack of true emotional responses to any stimuli. Any “feeling” shown by subject is thought to be purely artificial."

[...]

"He shows incredible propensity for pain management and is unflinchingly -- some say too eager -- able to deal pain (both physical and emotional) to his targets."

--Ninjak Specifications and Insights (Ninjak #2)

"Subject's tolerance for physical pain is nearly as limitless as his tolerance for emotional suffering. Hundreds of healed fractures of unknown origin are a testament to this."

--Ninjak Specifications and Insights (Ninjak #3)

Speed

Combat

Deflecting

Dodging

Reaction & Processing

Ninjak is capable of accessing every piece of knowledge and every memory he has ever experienced, and use this knowledge to come up with a solution to any given situation, in a split second.

“I’ve had more specialized training over the years than any man on earth. I’ve spent days… months… in meditation… travelling the synapses of my mind--making each obscure neuron into a well-worn pathway. A process that allows me to access every piece of knowledge I’ve ever acquired. I can recall every memory… every experience… to visualize a solution within a split second. To say my past experience and interests are useful is an understatement.”

--Ninjak (Unity #11)

Strength

Senses

“Smell in the air. Gun oil and sweat. Burglars? Strange they didn’t trip any security sensors. They’re sophisticated. Smell of jet fuel. Jump jet silhouette in the courtyard out back.”

“For the past few years, however, [Ninjak] has been used in a number of extremely sensitive, critically important missions for British Intelligence. Both an intellectual and an incredibly gifted martial artist, he’s able to utilize his seemingly innate hacking skills to effectively navigate the darker corners of the intelligence community, while he’s also a physical force to be reckoned with, having gone toe-to-toe with X-O Manowar, Toyo Harada, Dr. Silk, and other seemingly more powerful foes.”

-Unity #12 Preview.

Feats

“Together, they [Ninjak and X-O Manowar] executed a full frontal assault on the Vine-controlled headquarters of MI-6 in London.”

-Valiant Universe #1, Page 8

"Your target is Agent Roku. She's being held in a temporary Russian portable containment center. I've got to warn you that you haven't faced an agent like her before. Some reports indicate she feels no pain. Others indicate that she actually enjoys it. She is a master of improvisation. And she's had genetic tailoring--making her hair unique. Braided together, she can garrote or behead a man with only three strands. It can cut through metal and it has... incendiary capabilities. Early reports indicate that she took out most of the Russian guards by simply suggesting, via the intercom, that they kill themselves. The prison was kept at sub-zero temperatures in an effort to slow her metabolism. She has no clothes. No weapons. Just her body. And her mind. In addition to being a weapons and martial arts expert... she is a communications and electronics savant. She is in every way either your equal... or your superior. Roku was too dangerous to transport, so they built a prison around her at her current location. Under the current conditions, we estimate her total incarceration time in the Russian portable prison to be less than two hours."

-Neville Alcott, MI-6 (Ninjak #1)

"[Ninjak] also met Kannon's right-hand woman, Roku, an assassin so feared that skilled warriors have taken their own lives rather than face her razor-sharp locks of hair and deadly skills."

-Ninjak #2

Documented ability: Enhanced strength/durability.

-Ninjak #4: Roku Specifications and Insights

Stealth Skill

“Ninjak -- under assignment by the secret leader of the Harbinger Foundation, Toyo Harada -- infiltrated Aric’s command center during an assault and disarmed the X-O Manowar armor.”

-Valiant Universe #1. Page 8

Hacking Skill

Ninjak's skill in hacking is without equal.

"[Ninjak is] able to utilize his seemingly innate hacking skills to effectively navigate the darker corners of the intelligence community..."

-Unity #12 Preview

Abilities:

  • Unparalleled Hacker

Total Recall

Ninjak is capable of accessing every piece of knowledge and every memory he has ever experienced, and use this knowledge to come up with a solution to any given situation, in a split second.

“I’ve had more specialized training over the years than any man on earth. I’ve spent days… months… in meditation… travelling the synapses of my mind--making each obscure neuron into a well-worn pathway.

To say my past experience and interests are useful is an understatement.”

--Unity #11

Marked under "now" are the communications between Livewire and Ninjak while he carried this plan out. Marked under the other headings are flashbacks Ninjak went through in the space of a few seconds while constructing this plan.

Now.

Livewire: “I’m currently in contact with the alien drones. They’re… fascinating… GIN-GR seems to have spontaneously spawned them… like… like some kind of adaptive eggs… There are just so… so many. I’m casting my net as wide as I can… trying to communicate with them all. But they’re talking too th-. Communicating with them… trying to talk each one down… like trying to carry on a thousand conversations all at once. Each one is unique. They have… names… ngggh!”

Capshaw: “Ninjak? If you can hear me, it’s Colonel Capshaw. Hold tight. Livewire’s doing all she can to take out the drones.”

Livewire: “I… am trying… unnngh…! So… much… going on…. all at once…”

Capshaw: “You can do this, Livewire. You’ve got to. It’s that… or we lose all of Los Angeles.”

San Fransisco. 3 years, 2 months ago.

Ninjak: “So, is it ready or not?”

Shaggy: “Yeah, yeah. Solar-powered audiowave generator with self-generating energy source. It’ll run forever and broadcast any signal it’s connected to. All the size of a belt buckle. It’s one of a kind. And the blueprint is destroyed, just like you asked. It’s a shame, though. That’s some cutting edge tech. You could make a fortune if you weaponized it. A toxic payload that only affects high-end technology. Very dangerous.

Switzerland. 1 year, 16 days ago.

Unknown: “Just like you directed. It’s made from a series of classified alloys and can house any kind of radio-wave tech you want. It can broadcast without letting anything inside. And it’s magnetized. Pretty strange piece of technology. Would love to know you plan on using it for. You could take down a nation’s infrastructure if you stuck this in the right place.”

Tokyo. 5 years, 6 months ago.

Unknown: “That series of miniature jets, when mounted properly, can deliver projectiles up to a mile away… and around corners. Completely silent and accurate to within a centimeter.”

King’s Castle, London. 8 months ago.

Ninjak: “Killer delivery system four…”

Hong Kong. 2 months ago.

Ninjak: “I appreciate the delivery. Alpha-grade Uridium 99. Corrupts and damages only inorganic material.”

Himalayas. 10 years, 3 months ago. Site of the rarest and oldest living cactus.

Ninjak: “Ultra black contagion. Absolutely no cure.”

Now.

Ninjak: “Livewire… I’ve got an idea. If it works correctly, it should introduce a toxic virus into the drones’ closed system. Once installed, it should drop all of these ugly buggers.”

[...]

Ninjak: “Livewire? Can you hear me? I think I might have inadvertently broken our connection. The drones are down. Repeat, all drones down.”

Nice work. He also has a Taser on his swords hilt. Look up his one page preview for The Valiant.

@i_like_swords: I only accept Big Boss as my lord and savior. Don't try to corrupt me with your inferior false prophet.

Ninjak is still pretty cool, though.

Meh,this is all you got done in 18 hours? Ha

I'm not all that up for respect threads, but it's always nice to see a relatively unknown awesome character get the spot light. I've only read some of him while reading X-O Manowar series.

Great respect thread. I been want to know this character.

@terry2012: Thanks bro.

@ccraft: I mostly made it because I want him to have more respect/renown on the battles board, and to give the character more exposure. Hopefully I managed that!

@impervious You have seen this, right? :P
