I haven't thought this idea out fully, but in light of my recent game ideas, I thought I'd continue with the 'unusual' role for this one, and think it could be a rather fun game.
Plot/Story: A boy (late teens) working in a nondescript tavern has unwittingly overheard a conversation between two rough looking men. In doing so, he has accidentally uncovered a plot to kill the Crown Prince and overthrow the King. The two men - one a Nobleman, the other a ruthless mercenary - catch onto the eavesdropping boy and decide to put an end to him and the tavern, to ensure that no one can spread word of what they have done.
By some miracle, the boy manages to survive both the fire and the stabbing. The smoke from the burning tavern draws the attention of a passing mercenary who recognizes the mark that the ruthless mercenary always leaves behind. She already has a personal vendetta against the man, so decides to nurse the boy back to health. Upon learning of the secret the boy carries, and not knowing the name of the nobleman, she knows there is only one course of action to take.
Ok, so it isn't very well thought out right now, and most of it is still up in the air, but i'd like to see a hard-as-nails, tough-as-leather female warrior/mercenary type of character who also has a feminine touch (and perhaps a slowly developing love story) while the younger boy (boy, 18, female mercenary, 24) knows little of the world let alone fighting and isn't about to turn into the best of fighters over night.
