Who am I?
I ask myself this everyday since the day I was six and woke up, laying on the moist forest floor, gazing up at the brilliant blue sky partially shrouded by the emerald green pine trees. I remember that day perfectly. Of course, I always do.
You see, I have a gift. I can never forget anything. Ever. I remember every detail. From the exact shape of my Tenebris Dea's pupil as she gazed down at me in the ground, to the approximate speed of the clouds as she brought me back to the Tenebris Dea fortress. I'm sorry, im getting ahead of myself and confusing you. Basically, all you need to know about me is that my name is Talon Elyota and I am a Tenebris Dea. Tenebris Dea, in Latin, means dark goddess. Of course, I am not a goddess. No, only the high literary Tenebris Dea become goddesses. I am only a high assassin. A cold blooded killer, for lack of better words.
Their are two groups of Tenebris Dea, the literary part and the assassin part. As it was apparent when Zendra Faber, my trainer, brought me here, I excelled at killing rather than reading. I am one of the most elite Tenebris Dea assassins, but I will never be a goddess. Tenebris Dea training is rather...extensive. The first thing they teach you is how to withstand pain with repeated beatings. The second thing they teach you is how to separate your fellings from your work, to make you indifferent and unfeeling. The last thing they teach you is how to inflict pain. Some call this cruel. I call it a blessing. I am invincible.
Who am I?
I am Talon Elyota, high assassin of the Tenebris Dea.
