Finally after weeks of travel she arrived in her destination, Razortooth. The town was known for being filled with assasins. However Fabia classified herself more as a bounty hunter because shes only interested in targeting criminals. However becoming an assasin might help out her, she could still choose to target criminals only. She wanted to check things out however. She walked towards the town in hopes she would find an answer. She walked down along the streets but she was unsure where to start. Fabia was wearing her normal black dress that goes down to her kness with the white "T" stripe in the middle wearing seperated arm sleeves and a habit on her head. After seeing a few characters around the street she was most likely one of the oddly dressed even for a place like this. She didnt let it get to her and continued walking down looking around.

Darklighter saw the woman walk into town and aimlessly meander around. Suspicious of the new woman carrying a large sword, Darklighter grabbed his own sword and jumped out his window into the street below. Carrying his sword in his off hand, he slowly followed Fabia from behind, carefully making sure to not be seen or noticed by her. He ducked in and out of the many dark crooks and nooks of the town, fully exploiting his home field advantage. With perfect timing, Darklighter ran across the street and leaped onto a low ledge right above Fabia. He drew his sword and prepared to attack, if need be.
"So just who might you be?" Said Darklighter from the shadows above.
Fabia was growing tired of walking around clueless. She should just go up to a building and knock on the door and ask about what she was looking for. Thing is this is a town for assassins she wasn't too sure if she would be getting a friendly response. This wasn't really a sightseeing location. So perhaps going to any building wasn't as smart. She couldn't identify them since she hasn't been there before. She pondered about what further action she could take. She wanted help but not to get attacked mistakenly.
Then she thought that perhaps some buildings would have to have signs. She'll just look around for a place that sounded to have the correct title to help. She heard a noise behind her and looked back seeing nothing. She turned forward and continued looking for building signs mostly just for a place that could help her out. As she searched she swore she saw something move around. She turned to the next corner and yet saw another movement. Was she being followed? It was that kind of town where it could happen easily. She then decided it seemed to her that she was being trailed. Didn't surprise her one bit even if she was just thinking too much about it.
What would you expect in such a shady area? She ignored it but walked with caution. Continuing to look for buildings. She then heard somebody asking who she was, the voice oddly came from above. She looked and saw a man on a ledge with his sword out. Was he going to attack her? She placed her hand on the sword handle which stuck out behind her head since her sword was strapped on her back."Hmmm who might I be indeed? My names Fabia I'm just a pretty little bounty hunter." she said in response to his question. His appearance was a convenience after she thought she was being trailed."You were the person stalking me weren't you? I don't care your reason as to why. Am I just too pretty for you to let out of your sight? She joked with the last statement. She stared at his sword it was poised as if ready to pounce any moment. With such a form on how he was holding his sword, she knew he was experienced using it. "I take it your one of this towns assassins? I came here wanting to train and become one. Perhaps you could help me out?" She said figuring it would be better asking a local rather then bumbling around. Hopefully he was friendlier then he looked.

Darklighter sneered at the woman and jumped down from his perch. "Sure. You look teachable. Barely. I need to OK it with the Reaper. He has the final say on new recruits. Give me your weapons and follow me. We need to go talk with him, and if he sees you armed, you'll eat a fifty caliber round before you are even at the front door of his office."
Reluctantly, Fabia handed her weapons over to the assassin and followed him the large administration building in the center of the town.
Darklighter looked at the woman and ordered her to stay put. He then went through a door, down to the weapons lockers, and put Fabia's gear in one of the lockers. He came back to the main reception area, and told her to follow him. The two walked up a shot stairway and into an empty room. Darklighter told her to stay once more. He walked into the room marked "For the King of Shadows" and then changed his clothing, and used his shapeshifter abilities to change his face, his height, and his weight. He grabbed the large scythe from the wall above his desk and walked out.
The reaper inspected the woman, and with a deep, growling voice, said "Yes..... yes.... you'll do OK."
The reaper left the room, and the original assassin came back in. "Ok. The Reaper is OK with you. So, you get to join up with us. Time to start your training. First things first, we need to go to the lockers and get you some training gear. Oh, by the way, I'm Jericho, your sponsor. Which means until you are a fully trained assassin, I own you."
Jericho led the woman down to the lockers and gave her a pair of black pants and a black long sleeve shirt. "Put these on. This is your training uniform. You'll get your shit back later." Jericho took the woman's clothes and stuck them in the same locker with all of her other possessions.
Jericho then lead the woman outside and took her behind one of the buildings. "Now... we learn how to fight. Hit me." Jericho raised his fists and prepared to fight.
The man gave her a sneer and said she looked teachable, barely Must be his way of teasing her like she did just before to him. She would have to go to some reaper guy who accepts the new recruits. This reaper must be the title they give here for the big boss. He asked for her to give him her weapons. If she didn't she would've been taken out before she started. Yet again she wasn't surprised for such a place it must be how they set things up. She didn't want to give her stuff up but had to. Anyways she knew she would get them back one way or another.
Fabia handed over her longsword and her hidden knife to him. Her only physical weapons she carries. Keeping her other abilities a secret from him. She then followed him to a room. The man she followed walked into one room where a different one coming out inspected her. After he was done it seemed he accepted her and left to be replaced again with the other man.
The man before her said that she is able to join them. His also said his name to be Jericho and that he was her sponser. She didn't like how he worded that he owned her. First her weapons and now her clothing it would seem that she was going to have to go through a lot. Black long sleeve and black pants."These clothes hide all my sexual appeal. How can I seduce people and lower their guard with these on? she said with seriousness. She liked to view many different perspectives to find usefulness in different things. She followed Jericho behind a building saying she would learn to fight. He said to hit him. She was skilled with a sword but wasnt taught much with hand combat.
She figured she would apply her arm movements using her sword and apply it to her fists in hand combat. She smirked at Jericho. She may be a woman that looks weak, but her strength and speed has been altered with magic to make her even stronger than a man. She believes shes half stronger then a man in his prime. Which means she could easily keep up with a males strength. She lunged at him quickly and and threw out a few quick strikes with her fists then to be followed by a left kick. Its weird how this came to be not long after she met Baron and that strange man in the woods but here she was doing what she wanted to.

Jericho watched as the woman swung her fists like she was still holding a longsword. He dodged the large strikes, deflected the kick, and quickly spun around to her side. His fist quickly shot in and made contact with her ribcage.
"No, no no. You can't fight with your fists like you do when you are using a longsword. You are using too much muscle and not enough finesse. You need to be fast. Don't come straight at me, instead, try to get around behind me."
Jericho backed off from the woman and started to lecture. "If you are without your weapon, or you are disarmed, you need to be able to fight effectively. Now, you need to come in fast, not hard, and you can't fight in a straight line. Use your environment to fight. If you can attack from a different angle than straight on, do it. Now. Instead of attacking me aggressively, get creative. You have 20 seconds to prepare and get wherever you can to attack me best. Now... 3... 2... 1... GO!"
He dodged her attack and got behind her landing a hit in her ribs. Saying she couldnt move her fists like she was holding her sword. It might seem like she was doing it in the way she was holding a sword but her arms were only moving in the same way she counted that as a difference. Either way he noticed what she was doing
He told her things on what she should and shouldnt do. She smirked when he said get creative. She'll get creative alright. He'll regret saying that to her. "I know Im not good at hand combat but I have something else just for it to help." she blew out a smog of her pink pheromone powder at him. She then ran to the nearby building and jumped on it quickly using it to get at a different angle around Jericho. She did a low kick to his legs. With her free hand she balled it into a fist and striked upwards.

Jericho saw the pink powder drift towards him. He jumped to the side, landing right in front of Fabia's kick. The kick knocked him down, coincidentally helping him dodge the punch. While on the ground, he grabbed at Fabia's ankles, hoping to pull her down.
"Better. Just make sure that your attacks follow into each other. So instead of punching at me after you try and sweep me, try to stomp at my face or body."
Sturm drew his sword, smiled, and prepared for his hunt to begin... He always thought Darklighter was too easy on he new recruits.
She smiled when she saw him getting kicked. Faia was dragged down to the ground when he pulled her ankle. She used a little bit of magic to cause some wind to cushion the fall, but not by much."I was hoping if you dodged the kick the punch hits ya instead, but that backfired. I rather would have you breathe my lovely pink powder it has no negative effects." She said with a smile. She blew out more pink powder at him. Since he never said to stop she assumed they were to keep going unless he said otherwise.
(sorry for the wait)
