Terminators of Ebon City

Call of Blue Moon

Story of Beihan Anndas:
I have no worth to live, but I cannot die now, though death is too closed to me and it only speaks truth after so many lies are spoken. Why does my goddess still tolerate me to live? I don't know.

The Blue Moon Priestess taught me how I can see the Blue Lightning though she could not see it, and I learned to stab so swiftly as the chip of our goddess.

I also studied how tide and its wave control everything, especially in the bodies of living entity, that was the art to control death and life. So I have done by changing and controlling the current.

Trolls taught me how I can conceal myself by dissolving into scheme both from sight and darksense, finally I finished so perfectly mastering the discipline, I could sometimes lose myself. I was crazed, as everyone in that temple.

She taught many disciples how they should kill without mercy, how they should show who send them, and the difference of Secret Murder and Open Death. Many died. Fyodor Volhovos showed crazed smile before us, Jakareeli spoke insanity, but we still trusted our teachers for we didn't have another choice.

When I reached the Class by that turn I would teach my own disciples, the Priestesses taught me the hidden secret. I realized I had been deceived and that night I escaped from the temple of Horrible Assassins while bat trolls slept. Such event is not unusual, my mentor said for many fell mad and others hoped only in death after the last transformation.

But neither of status I did fell, and I chose the third Death, escaped from the Hell over the Surface by secret tunnels. (Trolls called it Hurtplace) I knew many died or fell to far more worse status to try escape from the Blue Moon Plateau.

And Miraculously, I successfully escaped and realized myself to kill all of the mortal pursuers who were all of my former kindred. I was sure then immortal Furies would pursue me, but I could not commit suicide and waited the horrible agony and the death of soul.

But it didn't happen for unknown reason, The agents of Imperium, Spoken Word rescued me and taught me how to distinguish people who commit demonic act and aren't blamed for their power, and finally I noticed what I could, I was far worse than them, but I found myself who aren't able to kill oneself already. I settled in DeeZola Cult in this City of Ebon. And I help people while I can live without slaying.

Now I want to die as a human without trusting any gods except the hidden horrible powers, but I realized I could not abandon the Art when I killed the Woman who sold me to Blue Moon Priestesses. I don't know how they made contract with the Amir of Tagor Mahaquata, but She tolerated me to live for a while for unknown reason, She sent me a message once, that I shall go back to the Citadel some day. Though I know I will never go back.

I have no worth to live, but I cannot die now, though death is too closed to me and it only speaks truth after so many lies are spoken. Why does my goddess still tolerate me to live? I don't know.

Motto: "We have no worth to live, but we cannot die now, though death is too closed to us and it only speaks truth after so many lies are spoken."

Important Members

 Black Face Shanak: Patron of the League, now mainly living in Doblian City. Marked by Imperial Official as one of the greatest gang leaders in Empire.

 Beihan Anndas: Renegade Annilla human Assassin, Leader of Terminators. But mainly in the south of Doblian Satrapy, he was famous as Great Acupuncturist Healer and works as so usually in hospital of Erissa with only token of fee, who has showed miraculous healing feats by his mysterious needles. He usually hints that his healing art was learned in the "East" of Empire, almost all of his patients now revere him and some thinks he learned his art in Kralorela.....His usual, ironical saying to his friends: "Who can heal people also knows how to kill people."

 Swordmaster Jasper: Once famed for his skill in Sword and Art Fencing of Red Yanafali in the City of Jillaro, but jealousy of rival noble houses made him flee as a criminal, for he was born poorly.

 Lanaz Blowgun: Renegade uz from Dagori Inkarth. Once (foolishly) enjoyed life in Empire but later cast out.

Concept: They are composed of professional assassins and freelance sword masters once served one or some Imperial Factions, but later disillusioned for hopeless corruption, greed, madness and internal petty conflict of Imperial Nobles and Army. But they still use their old arts as freelancers, now earning their livelihood. Most of them pretend to live like ordinary people of Empire and have standard occupation of society when they are not in mission to terminate target.

Origin: Ebon City, frontier of Doblian Province, after "Black Face" Mask Celestinus appeared from the grotto, he appointed some of criminal masters called "dark faces" to enforce his will to Empire gloomy split by factions of Dart Wars, they are all obliged to help him for without his sentence, all of them commited crimes worth of more than death sentence after long torture. Celestinus tried to own perfectly independent security faction.

 Though many of them later persecuted by Danfive Xaroni under Orsorkhon after succeeding Masks intended to unify various security, its Wyter and Master of "Black Face" survived for his connection to Yolp Mountain uz in Aksena and Xarkarsh. Their Uz contact to Tagor Mahaquata managed to threaten Orsorkhon not to exterminate the faction, and now survives as mutual aid society, sheltering outcasts cannot show loyalty to Rufelza anymore, but still cannot escape Empire for various reason.

Guardian: Landscape Rock (Selfrock of Rashoran Mystic?) providing Talent? (If you want to know more about my concept of Selfrock Teaching, see here.)

Disadvantage: This band always walking over tightrope between various factions of Imperial Security Section in various dealings for contracts, like Spoken Word, Blue Moonies and Danfive Xaron Cult. And the freemen are always cautious to make new contract for choosing next target, with only great charge and proof of evil deeds of target. Only qualified members are permitted to join in.

They are realists in "real" middle world who lost illusion during their service to Empire in youth or outcast from "Liberation of Red Goddess." They thus simply want to live like ordinary people of Empire as far as they can, but disturbances of current empire (like Argrathi revolts in South, etc...) and complicated duties and connection they made in past deeds don't tolerate them to do so. But they intend to kill only worst sinners and nobles who enjoy heinous acts without any guilty feeling, but always escape punishments.

 Their worst menace is Thief Takers of Elz Ast, some of chances they encountered in several missions (while one try to catch criminals, other try to kill.) and now both sides believe another dire enemy, both of them believe own leagues are realists, but one believes ideal and future of Empire, other doesn't.

(Almost all of these ideas are from series of Shotarou Ikenami's "Assassin Baian".... http://www.mysteryguide.com/bkIkenamiAssassin.html)
