The Inaba Clan (
Though little is known about the Inaba Clan, they are a clan renowned for their use of hair as weapons in unarmed combat. The heirs to the Inaba Clan begin strengthening their hair in childhood by lathering it with a special wonder drug, stronger than any modern hair growth formula. With years of training the hair can be freely manipulated.
The assassins from the Inaba Clan have served the Urita family for generations. Inaba Ryo has been knowing his employer Urita Sukizo ever since they were kids, though Sukizo sees Ryo more like a friend than an assassin.
