My thanks to Dustin Groshong for my assassin's name. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Kaedes, also known as Kae.
He is the Dragon Prince's secret amour, the one he sneaks from his palace to rendez-vous with. He is part of a guild of ninja-style assassins, whose services can be bought for a high price, ensuring anonymity for the contractor. They are a secretive organisation, all fearsome weapon masters, each with a speciality,and gifted with certain mystical powers. His specialities are his daggers and throwing knives, and he has limited psychic abilities, such as foresight when trouble is about to include him. The feathers on his head dress are a sign of rank, red being the highest, descending through purple and blue, so he's gifted, but yet to prove himself to his employers. When not clad in his assassin get up, he is a boisterous, arrogant man, cocksure and mouthy with a hearty but dry sense of humour. But he never boasts. If he says he could take your head off before you get out of your seat, he means it.
