Nightshadow! This is going to be a good post. I am going to introduce you (or re-introduce you) to one of my all time favorite characters.
She's soooo much fun! Nightshadow is an assassin. I created her when I played LoC (Legends of Cosrin) and had so much fun role-playing her. When I first created her, no one knew I played her. When people found out I played her and my other character Kayta... well they'd flip out. It was fun.
Half the time people forgot I played both. But I digress.
Nightshadow is the only daughter. Her father was the King's hired assassin and they lived a life of luxury. He kept his job a secret. For all his wife and daughter knew, he was a Nobleman, for the king called upon him frequently. Nightshadow's real name is Teresea Fershand. The day she discovered her father's secret was the same day her world came crashing down.
Promised to another Nobleman's son, Teresea was to marry finally at the age of 19. She was a handful, fiery in temper, as quick with her tongue as she was with a blade. She didn't want to be married. Her parents tried to force her into it and she fought it every step of the way. Her father finally convinced her it was time, to please bring honor to the family by doing this huge favor. She'd do anything for her father. Little did she or her father know, her fiancee knew her father's secret.
Nightshadow's parents were killed by her fiancee and she would have died as well, if not for her quick thinking. She fled, carrying her knowledge with her and vowing revenge on the man who killed her parents. She ended up living on the streets to survive, always moving as the search for her grew. When Nikkolani found her, he knew she had talent and trained her to be one of his deadliest assassins.
She knew she followed in her father's footsteps and that the same fate may be in store for her as well. But she had vowed to never fall in love, to never put her family in danger. She was prepared to live a life alone. Or so she thought.
Ha! That's all I will tell you for now. I know, I'm mean.
Favorite Band: Nightwish. Favorite Movie: Night at the Museum (1 & 2) (And Night at the Roxbury too!)
