The story of the group known as The Infintes truly begins centuries ago, in feudal Japan. Seeking autonomy from the oppressive class system of the time, a few citizens fled into the mountainous regions of Iga and Koga. There they developed ninjutsu, a stealthy martial art perhaps inspired by Sun Tzu's The Art of War. Once there numbers got high enough they made there home from an Island off coast of Japan called ' Eternal Skies Island. '
Over a period of centuries, they refined their art in secluded camps. Students trained and practiced the art from birth, playing children's games designed to impart expertise in unarmed combat, swordplay, weaponry, camouflage, escape and evasion. Ninjutsu was also designed to encourage spiritual growth by pushing oneself physically and mentally beyond normal human limits. The ninja were expert in espionage and assassination, and offered their specialized services to samurai warlords and others who could afford them. Tatsunaka Honzo officially brought them together in 1588. The Infinite covets power above all other objectives. They are primarily based in Japan, but operate internationally. They operated as a secret society of Japanese nationalist samurai but were soon co-opted by the Snakeroot, an ancient ninja clan which serves a primordial demon known only as the Lucania. Members of the Hand are practitioners of powerful occult Chi techniques and can murder a person and bring that person back to life as a servant of The Infinites.
There Motives are unknown and they have different units and factions within there organization that allow them to do things all throughout the world. Working from the Shadows they have one faction in Kasaihana city that Kin Tasanagi and Suzume Yasutake discovered after they tried to use the blood of there child to fuel themselves with power. They work for some kind of Onigami who rules over the faction and has ruled over them since he discovered them.
