Stealth and Infiltration

One of two Infiltration specializations, Stealth and Infiltration (S&I) concentrates on the ability to sneak into and out of locations without being caught or seen. While early levels center more on use of jutsu to sneak into locations or that complement stealth skills, the higher levels center more on the non-chakra aspects of stealth in order to counter the rudimentary chakra sensing skills most ninja acquire through experience that would reveal attempts made using jutsu or chakra.

Some tactics for revealing another stealth specialist while remaining hidden and unseen are covered.
