Elysia wears all black clothing, typical to most thieves, burglars and beggars that often go out at night. This helps her with hiding in the shadows within homes and cities. She also has a large amount of hidden pockets and pouches on her belt that help her to store as many valuables as possible to sell to fences. On her back, she also has a sheath for her shortsword that allows her to quickly draw her blade, whilst also making sure that it is secured whilst she is climbing. Her outfit also possesses a black hood to hide her identity as well as a black face mask. Her shoes have dampened soles, muting her footsteps. Her only memoir to her parents is a Templar pendant that she wears around her neck. However, she has no idea what it is.
Personality: Elysia Only really values one thing. Money. As with most thieves and common criminals, she is easily bought by people for a higher price and has a natural intuition for finding valuables. She relies on her guile, wit and looks to get her out of a situation, using her blade as a last resort. In her mind, a dead target can't yield any more valuables in the future. She has little to no regard for other people, believing that they showed her none in the past. However, she does have an interest in finding out about who her parents are and why she was abandoned at such a young age.
Favorite Weapons: Her shortsword, although she rarely uses it.
- Elysia is an exceptional sneak.
- As a thief, she also possesses skill in picking locks and pockets.
- She is also a skilled actor and liar, playing the emotions of people for her own gain.
- Because she rarely uses it, her skill in fighting is severely lacking compared to most other combatants.
- Her interest in her parents can be used to easily lower her guard.
- Her refusal to kill people can also be played against her in a fight.
Background/Biography: Elysia's earliest memory as a child was being found on the side of the road by a traveller, near the dead bodies of her parents. Around the baby girls neck was a pendant, marked with a cross. The traveller decided to take pity on the girl and took her to the nearest city, which was Rome. He paid for her to stay at an inn before going his own way. However, the innkeeper took advantage of the girl, forcing her to work for him at the earliest possible age, before eventually throwing her out at the age of nine. The girl, who still hadn't been named at this point (often being referred to as either girl or rat by the innkeeper) took up the name Elysia, deciding only take up a second name when she found out about her family. She learnt the tricks of thievery from other beggars on the street, as well as convincing people to fall for her schemes. She managed to scrape enough money to get by, but nothing that earned her a major living. She still searched for information about her parents, but these often turned up fruitless. She eventually became a professional thief, often being hired by large families to either tail someone, find information on them or to steal an item for them.
