Ninjas fight for those who cannot. The purpose of the ninja is to deal swift justice where it's needed.
How to Unlock
While traveling the map, after getting to level 5, you will get into a random encounter labeled "???", which you will find a ninja being chased by three guards. Choose the side of the ninja and help her fight the guards. After the guards are dead, she will then tell you to visit the ninja hideout. Once you visit the hideout and talk to her, a whole unit of guards come in and attempt to attack. Yet again you must side with the ninjas and assist in defeating the guards. Once this is done you are able to learn ninja skills.
If, in your first encounter, you side with the guards, you will be unable to unlock the Ninja class without starting a New Game+. In exchange, you are rewarded with some experience and a short quest chain involving the guards.
