The Shadow Squad specializes in espionage, Souei said they have zero fighting strength, but Rimuru doesn't believe him since they do carry out assassinations. Souei has sole and exclusive control over them, and few even know of them and their name comes up only in rumors. Souei supervises the Third Corps as well. Information gathering could be done extremely well from the sky. However, Souei can only command if Benimaru issues such an order. Of course, Souei is not the kind of person to ignore the chain of command and issue orders without authorization.
Souei sent out Souka and the other ninjas to various countries and is using natives to gather information.
