Hello. You want to join me and train to be a ruthless killer? Hope you are ready for it. This life is not for those who are weakhearted. First off, we do have a code. Never kill a fellow killer out of fights for rankins or appopriate fights to the death. Or if you have a death wish then do so. You will be hunted down and killed. Treated as a traitor. Traitors die. You abandon us you die. Ranks can be taken by fighting and winning. High positions will be to the death. Otherwise no killing in rank fightings. Now if you have a bone to pick with someone you c initiate a fight by pointing and slashing your neck. That is a fight to the death. Now that id all for rules. Oh. Disobey my orders? Try me. Ranks. Leader. Second. Third. Alpha. Predator. Prey. Ask for rankings in next book. Then post character here however you want to but no powers............I am of no cinsequence to you. Names? I am known by many. You can call me Blood. I am female. My appearance is how I appear. I have one red eye and one violet eye. And I have never lost a fight. I am trained in fighting and fight with instinct as well as technique mixed in. And just wath your back. You cross me, you blink and your gone.
