(koo-noy-chee). A female ninja specially trained in psychology. They were to seduce the enemy for a clever assassination! Some would disguise themselves as Geisha to deceive their unsuspecting target. There are two types of kunoichi:
"Shimma kunoichi" is a member of the ninja family, trained for her specific role. She typically worked under a kantokusha, or a commander, who usually tried to give her the impression she was his only kunoichi. Due to their highly emotionally sensitive natures, the kunoichi needed to be carefully handled so as not to fall in love with the target or lose sight of the goals.
"Karima kunoichi" were usually hired only for a specific job, acting as a spy within the enemy's walls. These women, usually maids, mistresses, or entertainers with access to the house may be purchased for the right price.
A young impressionable Jewish boy who is a bit naive and quite shy. (don't forget the gutteral chhhh!) Yeshiva (or Jewish school) boy. Typically, such teen-age boys are very studious, shy, sheltered, somewhat naive, and not at all into the "pop culture" things most typical American boys their age are into.
Once a symbols of women's rights in the 1850s, the bloomer underwent several transformations in the underworld of undergarments. Popularized by suffragette, Amelia Bloomer. They were eventually replaced by drawers or knickers.
