Born of a human woman and a male elf, he has known little kindness in his long life. Despised by humans for his inhuman blood, scorned by elves for the coarse human in him. He has survived beyond any expectations, and in the underworld of the city, the world of crime, he has excelled. Originally sold as a slave by his human grandfather, then raised to be a noblewoman's 'toy' and assasin, he learned his lessons well . . . then used them to earn his freedom. Now the leader of a profitable assasins guild, he answers to no one, and those who betray him . . . will never walk the living lands again.
