(5)All In The Family-
You're a woman who was born and raised into a prominent Italian Mob family. You and your older sister were granddaughters of the Don, and always encouraged to do for the family. Your sister was a strong follower of this belief. You both married guys who were in the lifestyle.
You wound up marrying a monster however. He beat you, and raped you. This began a period where you essentially lived in hell. Your husband would find new ways to inflict cruelty on you, and took massive amounts of pleasure in your pain. It was fairly common for you to have to make visits to the hospital. But you were sworn to silence and to remain, your sister and her friends would always be there for you. They'd take you shopping, go out to dinner with you, listen to you and your sister would always remind you of family.
One night things had changed. You had enough, you couldn't live this life anymore. Profiting off of death and crime, and living with your monster of a husband. In a frenzied state, you threatened to go to the feds about information regarding your family. As a result, on a drive home that night? Your car was blindsided, you were brutally beaten and tossed from a bridge. This was supposed to kill you, but somehow you survived this attempt on your life. You were believed to be dead, so you changed your identity. Used what little money you could gather or still had to repair the extensive damage done to you and to get some restructuring done on your face and body. You travelled the country and learned whatever you possibly could. Whether they were soldiers, cops, gun handlers or combat instructors. As a result of your trauma. You couldn't truly feel anything during sex anymore, this has angered you to no ends. Sometimes, you even assaulted the poor guys when they can't make you feel anything.
Your husband along with some of his hitters, were slaughtered by a ruthless vigilante who had been forever changed by the events of his life. You and him were almost the same on the inside. Dark, hollow, broken and exposed to the truly ugly sides of the world. However he is more capable of handling this world due to his upbringing as a child soldier, and his adult years as a soldier for the US. His grim crusade, was essentially a mission to him. After you got revenge on the family? Who knows what there'd be left for you. However during a set up/ambush you manage to save his life despite his taking several bullets. Taking him back to your safehouse, you attend to his wounds and express how he's an inspiration for you and how he killed your husband.
(5)She's One of Us-
You're a CIA agent, one who is lucky to not be in prison because of a double cross by your ex-husband/former partner who is also an agent. You were freed from prison to aid on a special mission that could potentially wipe your record clean and allow you a normal life. Your superior who is involved in many underhanded deals, wants to put together a new project that he has been given the green light on. It'd be completely off the books, and involve some of the most lethal people on the planet hunting down and eliminating some of the top priority targets on the planet. They'd get paid, and essentially have government backing in their deeds. There is one man in particular that he wants for this operation.
A former special ops type who had set a bar so high it could never be matched. He had specialized in the impossible, his list of kills extensive, and he truly understood that war meant the total destruction of the enemy. However somewhere along the lines, he got disenfranchised. He didn't go career like his superiors had hoped, and he seemed to disappear off the face of the earth. When in reality, he only existed off the grid so he could hunt down targets around the world he felt truly needed to be wiped off of the planet. Your superior has a bead on him, and he wants to recruit the guy. You all are able to bring him in, alive.
You've always been a bit on the fucked up side. You cuss a lot, you have a morbid sense of humor and are pretty adept yourself when it comes to a firefight or espionage. You've always been attracted to dangerous men, and him in particular? You have a major attraction to him, and want to jump his bones. Though you think this whole thing is a horrible idea upon meeting him when he's kept locked up inside the place you all are operating from. Almost instantly, you realize this guy isn't someone they should be playing around with. He won't play ball, and there are also some highly dangerous men after him who have tracked him to the base. They'll stop at nothing to see him dead.
Things get ugly, and the two of you wind up escaping since you lend him a hand. He reluctantly feels that he owes you for helping him out of a tight spot. The two of you are being hunted, and the only choice you have is to kill everyone following you. But that would leave the larger problem of the CIA as a whole, in which case? The two of you need to get hold of your ex, get a confession out of him about his betrayal of you and the underhanded things he has done off of the books. It needs to be videotaped, and you're pressed for time.
You're a young woman of an unspecified East European ethnicity. However your life has been a literal hell. Your village was attacked when you were in your teens by a militia consisting of slavers. You among other girls were taken captive, and in the process? You were essentially forced into prostiution. The slavers had the mindset of "Rape them to break them." Eventually you wound up getting pregnant, and the baby was used as a tool to make you work harder as you were allowed to see it once a week. It gets to be too much, and you escape with your baby after being brought to America. A well meaning social worker however unintentionally is the cause for you being found and your baby murdered, you find out abou tthis and in a fit of rage go out and try to murder one of the men responsible. This turns around on you, and it seems you're going to die until he came. He wasn't exactly a knight in shining armor.
He was a killer of killers and criminals, and he guns them down. He was going to leave you to your fate until you reveal your baby was murdered and pass out. He takes you to his safehouse and has you explain your story, once you finish? He pledges to keep you safe and to kill every person involved with the slavers.
