The Brothers FallenGang Position:
Vess was an assassin. A very good assassin. There was never a target that had ever managed to escape her. Weapon of Choice: Weapons:
Vess is trained to use every weapon available: from dirk to great axe to gun. Her preferences are an assassin’s blade, which is something between a dagger and sword. She usually dual wields said blade in one hand and a dagger in another.Shadows:
Lilliana can make shadows materialize and solidify. The shadows can become mists to hide in or unbreakable tendrils to hold down a target.Additional Skills: Alchemy:
Vess’s poisons and potions are top notch and sell for a small fortune. She’s the best of the best.Stealth:
Due to her position as assassin, Vess can completely erase her presence. Not even a werewolf could smell her, nor a neko hear her. Very few and extremely powerful beings could figure out she’s there, and even there not quite an exact position.Speed:
Only the quickest races can outrace her. Her movements are a blur to all those but the trained.Flight:
The assassin has a great pair of wings on her back. They allow her powerful and quick flight.Personality:
Vess thinks before she acts, though she rarely does act. Everything has to be timed perfectly for her. The demoness calculates everything around her at an unnerving pace. She's always been a woman of few, but awing words. Despite being more on the quiet side, Vess is extremely stubborn, selfish, and proud. Everything is about her and only her goals are important. Even in her human life, everything was to make her own life better. She absolutely refuses to take orders from others, even if it usually means it would get her into trouble, which of course it has on multiple occasions. Vess is extremely straight forward, almost to a point of being blunt, and has absolutely no humor whatsoever, though is exceptionally good at acting like someone, or something, she's not.Bio:
Vess was born into poverty during the Medieval Ages in the country sid. Growing up practically an orphan since her mother worked the streets, either as a beggar or a companion, Vess explored on her own. At some point, she just wandered away from her mother and followed a pilgrimage to a large city when she was still very young. A child in the great would never have had a chance to survive without acquiring some basic thieving skills. Soon, however, she got caught stealing an apple from a market stall. Thankfully, a stranger saved her by paying for the near stolen apple. The man bribed the child to follow him by telling her she could have some meat. When arriving at his residence, he asked her to hand over the five other apples she stole without being caught. Denying the crime, the stranger suggested that she join him and his Thief's Guild. She would be trained and would steal for the Guild. In return, she would be fed, clothed, and sheltered. Vess heartily agreed and grew up training to be a thief. At one point in her life, caught somewhere between child and woman, she broke into what seemed like a rich house. However, upon entering, Vess discovered it was some kind of witch's house. Fascinated, she explored and lingered, despite knowing otherwise. Once, again, she was caught by the witch once she had returned home. However, instead of wanting to punish the girl, the witch weaved an enticing tale, convincing Vess to learn her ways, explaining that she would receive a lavish life style, obtaining anything and everything she wanted. Once again, Vess agreed and started to study under the witch as well. Years went by and Vess became a woman. She had moved up from complete poverty to living as lavishly as she wanted. But it still wasn't enough for her. She wanted more. Her greed got the better of her and she did exactly what the witch had warned her against. Vess made a pact with a demon. In exchange for her soul, she would be granted the power to do and have anything. Her joy was short lived and it was soon after that the demon came to collect on his part of the bargain. Vess tried to trick the demon, but in the end, Hell won out and received another soul to own.
The demon she had made a bargain with attempted to take control over her. For a long time she fought with the demon and quickly escaped him, fleeing. For ages she fled before finding shelter with a much higher ranked demon in Middle City. Centuries went by as she plotted vengeance. She grew stronger, faster, and more powerful than she ever was in her human life. Once again, she started by stealing from demons, but being caught by one target, she became employed to assassinate another or lose her own life. Finding assassination to come easy to her, the demoness continued her thieving, but now assassinated. Vess became known within Middle City as a never-fail assassin. Vess had found out the hard way that the one that employed her originally was a member of The Brothers Fallen
and she was unofficially recruited. After that, she became their shadowy assassin. It was never something she had thought she would ever do. However, her training as a thief and witch from her humanity, along with her newfound ability to control shadows, she was nearly undetectable by any. Due to her skills, she helped the gang become the second-most powerful, taking out key members of other gangs.
But within the gang, Vess could only rise so high. And her greed started to get the best of her once again. Secretly, she started making deals with other gangs to gain more glory and gold. She would even take out members of her own gang, showing that she had no loyalty to them. The Brothers Fallen
eventually found out and tried to take her out. However, with her skills, Vess easily escaped them after taking out a good deal of their forces. Whenever the gang would find Vess, no small feat in itself, it would send squadrons of grunts. None returned however. Finally, the assassin sent a message back with one survivor. The orc had no arms, eyes, ears, or genitals left. With the last of his strength, he passed on her warning. If they continued sending their people, Vess would kill them all before coming after the leaders. Knowing that she could do it, The Brothers Fallen
finally left her in peace.Theme Song (optional):
