Rokkaku Hamlet is a village of ninjas hidden in the Banner Pass and nominally part of the Toran Republic although it enjoys a great deal of autonomy. Those who enter the village unwittingly are usually apprehended by patrolling ninjas and cast out.
During the early stages of the Toran Liberation War, Rokkaku Hamlet was destroyed by the army of Teo McDohl. However, this drove the already autonomous ninja to rebel against the Scarlet Moon Empire and the village was reconstructed after the creation of the Toran Republic in 457.
Since the formation of the Toran Republic, Rokkaku Hamlet has since had good relations with the nation, and sends its leaders to Toran to train their troops on a regular basis. During the Dunan Unification War, they helped the Allied Army after Vice-Chancellor Kasumi delivered a request of aid to Chancellor Hanzo by the request of President Lepant.
A building where children are raised and trained until they reach puberty. All ninjas who study and live within this manor are called Sparrows and are trained by adult ninja, usually those of a middle rank, such as chu-ninn. In the Sparrow Manor, a young ninjas' hereditary rank do not come into play, and so all children are raised oblivious to the strict hierarchy.
The manor focuses on developing and honing motor skills as well as critical thinking skills. When Sasuke joined the Allied Army during the Dunan Unification War of 460, he had only recently graduated from the Sparrow Manor.
