Serena Sal was born into a family of travelling performers, so entertaining was in her blood. As a young child she would would sell refreshments to the crowd and join the rest of her family on stage to sing, dance and perform tricks. As she grew older she bloomed into a stunning beauty who took men’s breath away. When she was 16 a plague carried her family and the rest of the travelling troupe away to the underworld and she was alone. She managed to get along and make a living by entertaining but was increasingly enraged by men propositioning her. Some did as they pleased regardless of her resistance. Her skills and beauty soon earned her a place amongst higher end troupes and she began to move in aristocratic and wealthy circles. However, the improper propositions continued even if they were now cloaked in a false refinement. Her search for monetary stability combined with her anger led her down a dark path. A young noble, not wanting to take no for an answer, tried to force himself upon her and she snapped, killing him with a knife thrust through the eye. This pleased some amongst those who opposed the noble’s faction. These influential people protected her from punishment by concealing her identity. She began using her new connections to earn money by secretly luring the rich and the powerful to assignations with the promise of pleasure and then assassinating them. She has started refining her craft by learning about various poisons and their uses. She wants to seek out an alchemist willing to train her so she can produce her own deadly concoctions.
