Night Raid, who are they?

Each member of Night Raid is known for a unique style of combat, and the team is headed by Najenda, a former general of the imperial army. The main purpose of Night Raid is to depose the Prime Minister and dismantle his corrupt regime, which only serves to harm the nation’s people. Teigu are the weaponry of Night Raid, aka the Imperial Arms. These things are alchemy items manufactured from components of dangerous monsters that were found to be older than 900 years. This number was once 48, but half of them have since been lost.
