Should Leblanc, The Deciever, ever be unable to be in three places at once, she will call upon a man, borne of black cloaks and hoods that move through the day as if it was the night. While her front speaks to the innocents and the back to her followers, her mind spoke to this man; her most devout and deadliest follower. Although Leblanc is undoubted and completely in pride of her own magical prowess, even she is aware of a single fact; there will always be someone, somewhere, out of her reach of grasp. And at the time she recognises a threat she calls upon Balus, The Thorn of The Rose.

The victim is then found in pieces, and the only evidence that authorities, or the lack of it, could salvage, was a single, sharpened, poisoned, thorn.

He wears a loose pair of black slacks that are tied down to his legs to increase movement. His shoes are padded boots that, at a flick, will cause a poisoned thorn to be ejected from the tip of the boot. He wears a scarf that is wrapped around his neck and covers his mouth, bound tightly so as to decrease breathing sounds. He is a Hybrid Assassin/Fighter.
