Full Name: Cassius Kleon Herakleides
Nickname: None.
Age: 38.
Height: 5 feet 9 inches; 1.75 meters.
Gender: Male.
Birthplace: A farm inbetween Surna and Exemplar.
Faction association: The Bloody Hand.
Rank/position: Cloak.

(All below scales are based on average humans, with 5 being average, 1 being worthless, and 10 being excellent, all still within human bounds)
Attributes:


  • Strength

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    Strong enought to lift his own weight and a bit more, Cassius is quite fit due to his line of work.


  • Reflexes/Reaction speed

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    Being brought up with physical combat, Cassius developed great reflexes very early on. He can react very quickly to things happening around him, but he can not dodge crossbow bolts fired directly at him.


  • Dexterity/Agility

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    Cassius is very agile and dexterous. He has great control of all his limbs, and is very nimble.




Skill(s):


  • Specialised fighting technique

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    A fighting style developed by Cassius himself. The style itself is based heavily on the use of a short and light blade in the main hand, with the free hand being used to pummel and/or grappel the opponent. While most light fighting styles rely on exploiting openings in the opponents defence, the "hand and blade" utilizes the free hand in different strikes and grappels to create its own openings. Very effective against defensive opponents, while offensive opponents leave the technique at a disadvantage as the fighter will have to rely on his own reflexes and agility to dodge strikes and blows.


  • Unarmed combat

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    Being brought up in the monastery of a monk order dedicated to perfecting unarmed combat in order to achieve inner peace, Cassius has developed alot of skill within the area. He is well trained in the techniques of striking and kicking. He knows how to defeat most opponents, but against an expert he has little chance.


  • Climbing

    { | | | | | | | | | | }

    Wearing light armour and carrying little arms, Cassius can easily reach any height of a building. He's practiced different techniques for scaling walls using protruding rocks or other things sticking out, as well as cracks and other damages to the construction. Countless pursuits have also taught him how to get past smaller obstacles in the fastest way, and has taught him how to read the path ahead of him and spot alternate routes which allow him to escape from pursuers, or even cut off the ones he is pursuing.



Biography: Cassius was born the son of a farmer and a housewife. Unfortunately, his family had fallen on hard times shortly before he was born, and they were forced to sell the farm and all their possessions. Once they had sold everything, the family moved into Surna to settle down as the father had taken up a job at a local lumber mill. It was not a good living, but it was enough to feed and house them.
When Cassius reached the age of five, both parents decided they wanted their son to become a warrior. They admitted him to a warrior monk monastery nestled deep in the mountains to the east of Surna. It was here that Cassius begun his training.
At the monastery Cassius learned to understand that violence is either a weapon or a tool. And more importantly, he learned what the difference is. Weapons bring pain and death, two of the most feared things in the mortal world, while tools can bring nearly as much pain and death, if used properly, it can create and mold the world into a better place.
After finishing his training, both mentally and physically, he had reached the age of twenty. Eagerly he returned to his parents, who were of course thrilled. The very next day he left for Imperia to join the Talibarian Legion.

When in Imperia, Cassius was wandering the streets, looking for the recruitment office. He accidentally stumbled into the poorer quarters of the city, and was shortly after jumped by three individuals who demanded all his money. It was not long before all three lay on the ground, skewered on their own blades.
As he watched the scene for a few seconds, a dark figure approached him, speaking hushed words of brilliance and magnificent bloodshed. The figure offered him to join a secret organization of assassins, where he would fit in perfectly. The figure began slowly coercing him with promises of adventure and thrill. It was not long before Cassius, having experienced little thrill throughout his life, accepted the offer.
Now, eighteen years later, he's done much service to the Bloody Hand, and he has finished countless contracts. He has also continued his training with a more conventional weapon than his fists, developing his very own fighting style.

Pretty interesting and a nice biography I have to say.

I am just a little curious about his attributes though. For his reflexes you mention that he can't dodge a crossbow bolt fired directly at him. Just the way that is phrased makes me think this character would be dodging nearly all attacks unless it were something like a crossbow bolt.

Come hither, sirrah.
In Parthia did I take thee prisoner.
And then I swore thee, saving of thy life,
That whatsoever I did bid thee do,
Thou shouldst attempt it. Come now, keep thine oath.
(gives his sword to PINDARUS)
Now be a free man, and with this good sword
That ran through Caesar’s bowels, search this bosom.
Stand not to answer. Here take thou the hilts
And, when my face is covered, as ’tis now,
Guide thou the sword.
PINDARUS stabs CASSIUS
    Caesar, thou art revenged,
Even with the sword that killed thee.
(dies)

Doesn't -really- sound like 28 days later theme.

It's just sort of similar.

as stated before it's all within human reason.

a human with great reflexes can dodge a sword fairly easily if it's coming from his front. the "he can't dodge crossbow bolts" is a variation of "he can't dodge bullets". it's just a way of trying to establish that he doesn't have super-human reflexes.


and a random note, while writing this backstory i felt it was utter rubbish. so bad that it's probably the worst i've ever written. so don't be too surprised if it's horrible.

No offence, but it kind of is.

I understand it'd be hard to pull off, but damn.
