The Thief of Time
23 years old
The apocalyptic world of the High City is a world which arose as a way to survive the chaos of the world below. But as the years past, a fracture occurred causing the supposed utopia to crumble as the rich returned to the world below abandoning the poor and unruly above. This schism brought forth the Seven Sins and cultivated a perfect environment in which skilled assassins and mercenaries thrived.
As a child of the High City, Quinn has memories of her mother that are few and far between. For at a young age she was abandoned, left on the streets as an orphan – a simple street rat. Instinct kept her alive as did her skills at observation. She spent much of her time watching people, learning what needed to be done in order to gain food and protect oneself. She has done her best to scrounge for food and fight to maintain her dignity. In a world where charity is killed. Perhaps some humanity still remains. As a teenager, she formed a group with several other orphans. Together they worked to support each other, sharing their food and taking turns as a lookout to help keep everyone safe. It was among the safety of her group that she developed her knack for snatching things. She loved the thrill of stealing from those who terrorized her.
But the group did not live long, for soon it shattered as self interest entered in. Rumors and interest in the lower world grew and the group disbanded - most following paths that would lead them there. However, Quinn stuck with what she was good with. Left on her own, she began to plot heists much grander than before. And eventually she made the Seven Sins her target. For while she could not fight her way down to the lower worlds, perhaps she could buy her way there. The first time in and out of the Capitol was a success. The second time, Quinn was not blessed with such luck. She got lost in the large building trying to find the exit and the guards were waiting for. It was not long before her execution was set. However, machines are finicky things for just one crossed wire might mean the difference between disintegration and time travel.
