The Dwarf Veseslav grew up in the shadows of Hammerknell knowing one truth: the queen of the Dwarves had killed his mother and one day she would die for it. Veseslav’s father was King of the Hammerknell Dwarves and his mother was a comely handmaiden. The jealous queen had the young mother murdered, but not before her offspring could be safely spirited away. Veseslav was taken in by his mother’s brother, Bogdan, who made his living cutting short the lives of others. As Bogdan’s apprentice, Veseslav’s daggers became faster, his stealthy movements less detectable and his poisons more vitriolic than his uncle’s. The young Dwarf developed a particular poison of his own, and named it Ursula, after the evil queen. The Dwarves held a grand feast to celebrate King Monimier’s 60th birthday. All was joy until very suddenly the queen’s face went very pale and she toppled over into her soup, foaming and convulsing. Finally she lay still, poison the clear cause of death. But as the King’s elite guard hurried him to safety in his chambers, one dwarf dropped like a stone. A figure materialized from the shadows, pulling his blade from his victim’s back. The warriors rushed in, but the Assassin dodged their attacks, dealing cuts that bled profusely and festered and boiled from terrible venom. Moving with the ruthless precision of a hawk after prey, he finished them with strikes to their vitals. Soon, the guards were all dispatched, leaving the killer and the King. “I see myself in your face.” Said Monimier. “That isn’t possible.” “And yet, here I am.” Veseslav growled. By the time the party of men were found, the King lay dead among his guards. Veseslave never came forward to claim the crown of Hammerknell, his only legacy a series of flawless assassinations involving a poison that all of Telara now calls Queen Ursula.
Trained to meld with the shadows, bypassing defenses to launch devastating surprise attacks with their poisoned blades.
Choose targets wisely, as an Assassin can find themselves in dire straits if the element of surprise is lost or if the enemy is able to shrug off their virulent poisons or able to detect their stealthing tactics.
