These foul assassins present a danger mostly because of their ambush tactics, not as much as their sustained durability in combat. Typically armed with light daggers and throwing knives, they are often hidden in the shadows in room corners or shadowed alcoves. If you spot them early by moving carefully, you can nullify their greatest strength surprise.
