Night-Creeper are a syndicate of high-tech ninjas. They do not follow the traditional methods of their ancestors, choosing modern weapons over the crude sword and staff to accomplish their tasks. By using the most advanced stealth and anti-detection technology available, these martial arts masters infiltrate Top Secret research bases for the COBRA organization. It is believed that a portion of the clan resides in the arctic region and have adapted their methods to the cold environment. It takes a special breed to endure, let alone fight in sub-zero temperatures. Under the cloak of darkness and heavy snow storms, they strike with deadly accuracy. Combining both swift and ruthless punishment, they take what they want and leave only destruction in their midst. Showing loyalty only to Firefly, they react without mercy against all adversaries, including other agents of COBRA.
From General Hawk's Files: "All investigations into the structure and origin of the Night-Creepers have run into dead ends, or resulted in they mysterious disappearance of the investigators. Their policy is, you can't hit what you can't find."
Motto: "We are less forgiving than an avalanche."

Once you strip away all of his scruples, morals, and innate feelings of common decency, then you have a NIGHT CREEPER. When they aren't participating in missions, the NIGHT CREEPER ninjas are accountants who are kept busy creating new tax shelters for COBRA.
