I built this guy for a one-shot module. I'm playtesting on Friday. He will attack with four shadow rats (Tome of Horrors Complete page 504), making the whole encounter EL 5. The PCs are 3rd level. At this point, I'm checking to see if there's anything I should tweak (ability scores, feats, tricks, weapon choices).

Shadow Clone (Su): The ninja can create 1d4 shadowy duplicates of himself that conceal his true location. This ability functions as mirror image, using the ninja’s level as his caster level. Using this ability is a standard action that uses up 1 ki point.
Vanishing Trick (Su): As a swift action, the ninja can disappear for 1 round per level. This ability functions as invisibility. Using this ability uses up 1 ki point.
