Name: David Shuter
Age:looks 25, but is around 700 years in age
Appearance: Brown hair, natural tanned skin. He sometimes sports a short beard, and is sometimes shaved. He has green eyes and a muscular complex.
Personality: David is a kind and helpful person.. passionate about his cause. yet he tends not to make a habbit of growing close to anyone in or out of the order, as he knows they.. or him.. could die at anytime. He tends to be withdrawn from the world though, and is sometimes known as the Assassin Ghost. Someone who only shows himself when he is needed. There is always exceptions however.
Favorite Weapons: The Blade he had made himself, dubbed 'Kveykva'. A word of his won invention, which he has decided it would mean lightning, something he has always fancied. He also is a fan of his hidden blades.
He is also fond of his bow. His new assassin Tomahawk, and of course his multitude of white pistols, which he mostly carries around to fit the part of captain.
Strengths: Combat, stealth and deceiving. All these are strength required to be an Assassin, which he has learned from a young age and has perfected. He also has a brilliant mind, and is considered genius level, which is why he is such a good assassin.
Weaknesses: His is very prideful and tends to have an ego when it comes to his skills. If you insult him, or get in between him and his target.. be prepared to see the darkest side of him. He is also haunted by his past, as he is doomed to live until he is physically
Background/Biography: Born in the land of the British in 1170's David was named as he was, given no last name, being an orphan and all. He grew up on the streets and this hardened him. When he turned 10 he left Brittan and over the course of a couple years ended up in Masyaf. he was taken in by the Brotherhood and began training.
He quickly showed expertise in many forms. He learned quickly and even was able to fix the hidden blades that would be given to him so that he could use them without cutting off a finger. He saw the finger thing as a weakness to the brotherhood.. as it gave them away. It took him the most part of his training however, to learn how to do this, reading many scrolls and examining many blades. Many would say it was just by chance and luck he found out how to do it without breaking the contraption, and David himself thinks this, but of course he brags that it was all smarts.
By the time he became a full fledged assassin, he took on the last name 'Shuter' given his aim with bows.
In one of his contracts to take out a Templar, he acquired a necklace. A golden lightning-bolt. He kept it. He does not know what its worth. He does not even think it is important. He kept it because this was his first known templar that he cleanly killed, and wanted a momento. He keeps it hidden under his clothes though, as he does not want it confiscated by his Mentor.
What he doesn't know is that it is a piece of eden, from the first civilization, which grants the wearer immortality. Not in the sense he can not die, but in the sense he can not age. He is frozen in time until he is killed.
He figured this out though, when he was supposed to turn 40.. and still did not look a day past 25. he thought this cool, as he could continue to fight the Templar's forever.
Yet this changed when all his friends and brothers died of old age. After Altair's death, David was offered the position of Mentor.. but turned it down, as he knew in that position he would never have the chance to die.. and he would rather make use of this power and travel the world to stop Templar plots.
This is the first time he has settled with any assassin.. namely the new one.. Ezio. he sees potential in the young boy.. and is willing to follow him, and help him to greatness from the shadows.
After The Fall of most of the Brotherhood in Rome, David again took to the shadows, until the man he believed dead.. Ezio, came out in Rome, and David joined him, now formally appointed one of the Brotherhood yet again.
When Ezio began to to investigate Altair's Library, David secretly followed. He wanted to know this secret too... even though he had his suspicions.
Near Ezio's death, David was granted a special rank amongst the assassins. It basically granted him the ability to do what he wished without having to take orders from any Mentor. Since yet again David had refused the Mentor position. To the Assassin's he is now known by many names. The Ghost, The Legend, and the Grand Mentor of the brotherhood.
Now for the next 200 years, David lived in the shadows, occasionally coming out and thwarting a Templar plan, which gave David a reputation. The Templars tend to call him Black lightning, given his clothing and how whenever he turns up it is a black omen for them.
Now he lives in the Caribbean, working for the Assassins abord his own ship.. The Normandy. He has one target in mind... kill or turn Edward Kenway.
He was active in the Caribbean until he heard word of an attempt to kill Edward, and set off for England at once. Yet he arrived too late. Edward was already dying when David made it. Once he was dead, David learned of Haythem's first kill, and offered him a chance to join the Brotherhood.. also assuring him his father was a good man. He then left for the colonies feeling he had secured another win for the Brotherhood.
He learned 10 years later that Haythem had joined the Templars instead. David saw this as his personal mistake. And set straight back for England to rectify his mistake. On the way though, he got a raven from the local Mentor telling him that Kenway had set out for The colonies, and that their Ship the Aquila was on route. He put the Normandy on course to meet them, but was too slow. The Aquila was lost, and Haythem had disapeared.
David stayed in the Colonies until he heard word of the Brotherhood building back up and joined them to help bring an end to Haythem Kenway.. and help his son... Edward's grandson, Connor Kenway in his road to greatness.
Once Charles Lee was killed, David heard of trouble arising in Paris, and knew the Templars had to be behind it. So with a promise to Connor that he would return to help him flesh out the Brotherhood in America, David set sail for France at once.
Once that was over David returned to America and that was where he stayed for 200 years, traveling over the country helping with this and that, but mostly leading a quiet life. Then the second world war started, and it was obvious the Templars were behind it, so David joined the army, bribing his way up to a high rank so he could get things done in the war.
