Saber crouched low on the rooftop, watching through her rifle scope as the target walked from one hotel room to the next. He was wide open for her shot, but she wasn't rushed and she was a bit of a perfectionist when it came to her kills. The target had once been a Dragon like Saber, but he had made the mistake of selling information to a Tiger. Saber didn't know the details of it, but considering her boss had wanted his head on a platter, the woman figured it was probably something along the lines of a weapons storehouse location. But who knew? It wasn't her job to question the mission, just to get it done and get it done right.

When everything fell perfectly into place, she squeezed the trigger. The silenced shot split through the air and hit the man directly in his temple. He fell to the floor, dead upon impact. Saber kept her eyes out, waiting a full three minutes to see if there was any response. Nothing. Perfect. She sat up and started packing up. In only a minute, she was already making her way down the stairs, a pack slung across her back, hiding the deadly weapon.

She exited into the street and pulled up the hood of her jacket, sticking her hands in her pocket. No big deal. Just another street wanderer on a late Friday night. The woman was far from a standout, and she made it back to her apartment with no problem.

She set her bag down in her weapons closet, then locked it back up and set the alarm system back on. No one entered or exited without her knowing. Everything might seem a bit high-tech for a simple gang, but the Dragons were far from a normal gang, as were the Tigers. And with complicated gangs came complicated wars. With complicated wars came complicated tech. With complicated tech came specialists like Saber who made walking on a street in the middle of the day dangerous.

Saber stripped down to nothing more than a black sports bra and workout shorts. She slipped into her training room, locked the door, and went to work. She passed into another world where nothing existed except her and her 'opponent'.
