Ayame was the last student chosen by Master Shiunsai. Blessed with raw talent but a bad attitude. Curious and willing to learn new techniques, she is never patient enough to fully master one. During the Warring States perioid, Shiunsai traveled to Kyoto. Kyoto lay in ruins as warring armies fought for the ownership of the village. He saw a young girl on the riverbank watching corpses float by. It was a strange sensation for Shiunsai to see a girl in the midst of all that desolation. Although he searched for the girl’s parents, he could not find them. The girl herself appeared to be in shock. She knew her name, and her age, but that was all. The thought of leaving her there to fend for herself didn’t make Shiunsai very proud, but what would he do with a young girl? He couldn’t train her to be a female ninja, that much was clear. Shiunsai was not part of a large and well-established ninja organisation like the Iga Ninja. As a lone wolf, he didn’t have the knowledge or resources to train a female ninja. What did Shiunsai know of the ways of love? What could he teach a girl about seduction or hypnotism? As he prepared to turn his back on the girl clutching at his sleeve, Shiunsai thought he detected in her the makings of a ninja. He decided to take her home after all. He raised her the only way he knew how — as a regular ninja like Tatsukichi (Tatsumaru’s child name). Judged on her natural abilities alone, Omon was probably the most talented of Shiunsai’s three pupils. Despite her late start and her tender age, Omon was initiated into the circle of ninja at almost the same time as Rikimaru, when she was only 14. As a ninja, Omon would be known as Ayame.
Ayame has developed a strong relationship with Kiku, the daughter of Lord Gohda. After the death of Kiku’s mother Lady Kei, Ayame became like an older sister to Kiku. Ayame will protect Kiku at any cost. As a symbol of their strong relationship Ayame and Kiku always wear their sister bells close to their hearts. Ayame is in love with Tatsumaru, but unfortunately he does not feel the same for her.
Favorite Technique: Disabling an enemy by using shuriken in a surprise attack.
