The Orochi are one of the Heroes for maters of the katana and are assassin samurai


The Orochi are the Imperial assassins of the Samurai. They roam the battlefield like ghosts, terrorizing and slaughtering those unfortunate enough to cross their path.

Lightly armored and trained in the arts of stealth and deception, the Orochi dispatches enemies with a katana. Usually loyal beyond reproach, the Orochi holds the darker samurai secrets of dealing death in myriad ways, from throwing deadly knives to using a poisoned blade.

Story campaign

The Orochi was a rapidly rising assassin in the Emperor's service. An unfortunate habit of speaking out of turn put an end to a promising career and sent the assassin to languish in captivity. Fortunately, the Orochi's deep loyalty and good spirit earned allies keen on seeing their friend's honor restored- as soon as the small matter of springing the assassin out of prison has been dealt with...

The Orochi is the main character of the Samurai chapters. Players will play him/her, along side the Kensei Ayu.
