On the day that you were born, your father tried to kill you. Not that anyone would blame him for it; after all, it came as a bit of a shock to look down and see those red cat’s eyes staring up at him, and that little tail twitching. He had no idea that your mother’s family had demon blood; after all, both your mother and grandmother looked as normal as humans could be. To sire such a child as you would ruin his standing , both in the guild and in his social circle.
Luckily for you, your mother was able to save you from his murderous schemes, and took you away. She hid you both in the slums of the lower circle, where people weren’t so picky over where your looks came from. Life was hard, especially after her life of luxury as a rich merchant’s wife, but she did her best by you. After five years, nobody would have looked at her and seen the same woman that was considered one of the finest hostesses those years before.
Then, when you were 10, your world was ripped apart again. Your mother was suddenly gone. They said it was merciful that the disease took her so quick, but to you it was simply unfair. Within a week you were turned out of your dwelling, and found yourself begging for scraps. It was here that a man called Darley found you. Someone like yourself. A Tiefling.
Darley showed you how to use your inherent abilities, and you joined his gang of thieves as they engaged in their profession. By fifteen you were an expert cat burglar and served as a lookout. But thievery is a tough business, and the gang were caught. As a minor, you were taken to a home for young delinquents, and shown the error of your ways (or so they think..)
Now you have been given a role in some new task force the council have put together. You have been told that if you do well, you will be given the luxuries you have always yearned for. Who knows, if you do really well, your father may realise his mistake, and come begging for you to join him and be a family again.
