Allissa was, or is, a well trained scout, and when need requires, an assassin and thief. When she was young, her family was living in the city. Her father would go out at night, where? No one really knew and any questions asked were quickly and skillfully misled. They trusted him though, as he always treated them right, with love and care any father should.
But one evening, some very nasty men broke into her house and took her mother Janice, brother Jake and herself hostage for ransom. She didn’t know why anyone would want to keep them for ransom until later, when she learned something about her father that she never would have guessed
They led her family out of the house and down to their hideout in the warehouse district, a very bad place in town at night. On the 6 mens cloaks was asymbol of a hand clutching a dagger. It was a well known clan in the city, though relitively small, they were called The Shadow Knives, a group of small time killers who make their money extorting people with threats and petty thievery. Though they have no problem killing others for money, and evenfor nothing but the pleasure of it.
They waited in fear for many hours, no one came to them, no one made any demands of them. just sitting in pitch darkness huddled together. Their mother whispering words of courage though she had no hope of seeing the light of day herself. But for her children she put on a good face, a hopeful face.
It was hours later when The Shadow Knives returned to take them, they came all hooded, covering their faces, just as when they broke into their house. The family was usured into what looks like a meeting hall of sorts, though it had crates stacked high and freight sitting around to be moved at a later time. Their hands were tied behind their back and they were told to stand, and wait. Lucky for everyone, they did not have to wait long, soon, her father arrived with several other men. All of them wore a cloak emblazoned with a black sword, clutched by a skeletal hand.
“So you finally arrive Mr. Valentine, I would have thought you cared more for your “family” then to leave them in our … tender care.” A man to her left and behind speaks, his voice drips with venom towards her father.
“Let them go, they have nothing to do with this, they don’t even know about my … dealings with you.” He replies in a firm, demanding but also pleading voice. Even to this day Lis knows her father loved them as deeply as anyone could.
“NO!” The man cries, “YOU have involved them in this! YOU! It is YOUR fault its come to this, YOU killed my wife, my child!” Lis can only imagine that behind the mask, the veins in his neck are sticking out and spit is flying in his rage. She feels a little bad for the man … what with his family being killed, but her father? He’s a nice man … he couldn’t have killed anyone. The man continues his yelling, angry rant, ” And now, you will feel what I feel, feel my pain as you watch me kill your family!”
Everything happened at once, The Black Swords quickly drew crossbows and fired. They caught a few by surprise but not many. The return fire was just as brutal as many on both sides now lay bleeding. Thankfully the opening volley was enough that Lis and her family could duck and scramble for cover. The battle was brutal but short as the rival gangs fought for control and her father fights for his family. Janice covered her children with her own body, protecting them from harm … but at the cost of her own life as she took several bolts meant for them.
The silence after the battle was penetrated by the moans of the wounded and dieing
