The Nightjar hails from a secluded deciduous forest hidden on the peek of a deadly mountain that is always covered in storm clouds making the area seemingly always nighttime. This Dark and ominous place is referred to by many ninja as Mount Hakurei.
Nightjars are medium-sized nocturnal or crepuscular birds with long wings, short legs and very short bills. Most have small feet, of little use for walking, and long pointed wings. Their soft plumage is cryptically coloured to resemble bark or leaves, making them excellent at blending in with their surroundings. They have beaks that are much wider than it is long, and it opens wide both - vertically as well as horizontally. The resulting big gaping mouth allows it to more easily scoop up it's prey in flight. Its large eyes are placed on each side of the head (laterally) - which significantly increases its visual field. A reflective membrane behind the retina (tapetum) enhances its vision at night by augmenting the light-gathering ability of its eyes.
The Nightjars are a prideful race of master assassins and will only grant their knowledge and loyalty to someone they deem ambitious. Once they have found someone worthy they will then give them the mark of the specter. This is a symbol that all nightjars have and will show they are kin of the nightjar. The nightjars specialize in stealth and disguise and often lurk in the shadows waiting to strike their opponent from behind without ever being seen they are often called disgraceful for attacking from behind but the nightjar will do whatever it takes for a quick and clean kill.
There is also a sub-group of the Nightjar known as the Nighthawk, the Elite Assassins of the Nightjar. These Elite Assassins were known to be even more deadly than the normal Nightjar, having more natural ability and a body even more fit for the job of silent killing. These Elite Assassins are always sent on the hardest missions possible, so in the end many of them were killed thus why to this day the numbers of the nighthawk are still waning. Not much is known about the Nighthawk besides that it is, faster, stronger, and more knowledgeable than the average Nightjar, which is saying a lot because the average Nightjar is known for its ability to kill and do it extremely well.
