Birthplace Kamigawa
Lifetime During the Kami War
Race Nezumi

Ink-Eyes (Japanese: (すみ) () ; rōmaji: Sumime) was a legendary ninja rat, the most feared ninja on Kamigawa.

She started as a lowly nezumi sneak, ostracized by the Okiba gang at a young age. She was the cruelest child in a cruel world, almost sociopathic in her desire to dominate her peers. As punishment, she was taken deep into the Takenuma swamp and left to fend for herself.

It wasn't long before Ink-Eyes was caught stealing from an ogre hermit near a desecrated temple. The ogre saw the ruthless nezumi girl's potential and decided to take her in as his student, hinting at the great power she could wield as a kishinsuhaisha - a demon servant.[1]

Ink-Eyes learned the ways of ninjutsu, not through tutelage but through arcane study and solitary practice. When she believed herself ready, she killed her ogre mentor in his sleep and offered his blood to their oni overlord. The oni was pleased by her treachery and ambition and augmented Ink-Eyes' ninjutsu training with unique necromantic powers. While other ninja might steal information or even lives, Ink-Eyes gained the power to steal the dead, turning them into servant for her oni master.[2]
