9 was a natural born thief, killer, and was an assassin for years. So it was no surprise when a mercenary group known as the Black Company picked her up and brought her into the folds. Her first cold blooded murder was at the age of 7. She killed a paladin by the name of Ulin who was in the way of the Black Company. Although magic was never one of her strong suits it was something she could as least use a little. But while on a mission for the black company her ability to cast any magic was taking away by a curse.
Her job was to retrieve a magic sword from a mage who just happened to be Ulin’s brother. Aydon turned 9 into a cat and encaged her. Luckily 9 was able to get away before she was killed. But the spell that the mage used became a curse. The curse was set so every time a spell was cast or thrown at 9 she would turn into a house cat, an orange tabby.
Even under the odd curse 9 grew in strength and power. Year after year 9 still learned new skills and quickly became a Jack of all trades but she still exceled at the arts of assassination. She showed great determination and the ability to lead people. Her will alone has aloud her to get through the harsh, blood socked life that the Black Company offered.
By the time 9 was 15 she had become the leader of the mercenary group after a battle of unknown proportions left most for dead. To her knowledge everyone she knew was dead. The Black company grew and changed under her command, no longer was it the blood thirsty mercenaries it once had been. One of the newer members call went by the name Raven, told 9 that he could help with the curse that she was under.
He went on to explain that 9 had never gotten to know her true self. That the curse changed and hid a part away that she never knew was there. All of her live she believed that see was human when really she was a Pardalia or were-panther. Over time Raven was able to lift the curse and so 9 her true self. Needing to re-discover who and what she was, 9 lift the black company in the hands of her second in command, TJ, and left. Sometime later she found out about after word reached that Tj and the Black Company hand fallen once more, 9 decided to drop her Black company name and go with her birth name. From there she picked up the fight against the Daimon and anything else that offered to harm her or anyone she loved.
