THE CRIMSON THORN
About the Assassin:
Codename: The Crimson Thorn
Hair: Crimson Red.
Eyes: Almond shaped blue eyes.
Build: More slender than a human but thicker than an elf. On the bustier side though not enough to look odd with her frame. She has an athletic structure from all her training.
Height: About 5'9" in heels. 5'7" without.
Ears: Slightly pointed. They tend to be covered up by her hair.
Fashion sense: Red tends to wear clothing that show off her body. This generally entails short skirts and shorts, low cut tops often including a corset, and tight articles that still allow for movement.
As the Crimson Thorn she wears the outfit seen to the side. Occasionally she'll be seen wearing her dueling cloak as well. She only wears her mask for kills.
-Swordsmanship: Expert with European style. Knowledgeable on other styles as well.
-Marksmanship (Guns/Crossbow): Good.
-Disguising and acting: Expert.
-Marksmanship (Bow and arrow): Fair.
-Magic: Rune-induced magic. Primary: Earth. Secondary: Water.
-Hand to hand combat: Depends on the style. Her favorite is mixed martial arts though there are other styles she's not so great in but is training.
-Swords: Her favorite being the one she got her codename from, the Crimson Thorn. This was her mother's rapier. Her mother was a duelist, and had trained Red prior to her death. Red never stopped training and attempted to learn and master as many styles as she could. This is her best skill.
-Hidden Blade: The Black Rose gave her a gauntlet. This hides her hidden blade.
-Daggers: She possesses not many of these, though uses them for instances where she cannot bring a regular blade, as well as in combination with her rapier, and keeps them on her at all times as a security measure. They are often kept in her boots or in her corset. Her favorite is the one Rose made for her, which she cherishes as much as the Crimson Thorn.
-Poisons: She uses poisons in instances where other weapons are either not necessary or detrimental to the cause. She keeps a pouch on her side containing various types.
-Crossbow: She prefers this to a gun, finding guns a less skilled weapon in comparison, always one to enjoy even the slightest challenge.
-Guns: Red possesses a few guns, though if given the option, they are her least preference weapon. She believes them a cop out, and feels they are only good for instances where ranged attack is needed and a crossbow wouldn't provide complete accuracy.
-Bow and arrows: She doesn't possess one, though knows how to use one decently well.
-Cloak: Her dueling cloak provides protection against other rapiers. The cloak was designed for this, and this particular cloak is runed to provide extra protection.
-Chest Guard: Underneath her corset, Crimson Thorn wears a chest guard. This helps protect her from attacks aimed at her heart.
-Not easily rattled.
-Becomes weak if using magic.
-Temper if angered.
-Sentimental attachment to sword.

Visa for the Elven Empire, residing in Celestial City in the middle of the lake:
Dual citizenship in Balla-Dulin, home in the capital:
Red was born to a wood elf. She never met her father, nor did her elven mother know him. Her mother was exiled not long before her birth. Her mother passed away when her human father did, and that left Red to fend for herself at a decently young age. She supported herself through various odd jobs, and guitar playing on the streets. Do to this, she can blend into almost any atmosphere, through knowledge of how to act.
As she grew older, Red decided she wanted nothing to do with her elven heritage, due to the way her mother was treated, and vowed to help Balla-Dulin get rid of the elven king Goethe at any cost. Her hatred of Goethe is fueled by his harsh laws regarding humans and half-breeds like herself. She obtained a visa to permit her to be able to stay in the Elven Empire. She was granted this visa due to her membership of the assassin's guild Goethe tends to use.
Her assassin identity and her other identities are all kept very much separate.
Her true purpose in the guild is of course not to help Goethe but rather to leak information to the officials in Balla-Dulin. She'd hoped all along to get to put her highly honed skills to work one day and finally has the oppertunity. It is clear that her decision to try to bring down Goethe was well thought out considering the lengths she's gone to train in so many different weapons.
Red's involvement in Nova's band is merely a cover for her assassin identity, a way to get her and the Black Rose to their missions in every land. Her citizenship in Balla-Dulin is a well-kept secret, because it would raise suspicions.
She has two jobs aside from being an assassin. Her true job is a professional duelist. She does this to honor her mother, though she enjoys it as well. Being as it's almost as dangerous a profession as being an assassin, Red deals with pain and injury quite well. It's due to this profession she's so skilled with the blade and with daggers. She's occasionally seen in dueling uniform.
Though she does use her guitar skills as a cover in the band, it seems that perhaps that's one of the few things that Red truly does enjoy in life.
