Assassins are the most powerful of the ninja-like warriors of Clan Eshin, who hire their services out to Warlords, Chieftains and the like. These services range from killing off a rival, to stealing a valuable item to poisoning the water supply of an Imperial village. They wear thick black cloaks, and carry all sorts of killing implements drenched in poisons.
Pilou - A proud race of mouse-like faeries, these creatures live in the walls and alcoves of various old and decrepit farmhouses around France. They have large feet with which they make stamping noises to communicate, and inadvertently cause disturbances to the human communities nearby. When asked to stop making these noises, they have a tendency to become angry and spiteful, and make the noises louder.
