Liberare il Popolo di Roma. -An Assassin's Creed OoC-
"The Borgia... they must be removed from power, or who knows what hell will befall Roma?"
"This is true, but this cannot be accomplished by the few of us."
"We have many allies, they simply need to be shown our purpose. The rebels of the city refuse to accept Borgia rule, as do we."
"How do you intend to reach out to these rebels?"
"Why reach out to them? Can we not simply... lend them our hand in battle? Recruit them through action, not words?"
"If anyone is able to do such a thing, it would be you, Ezio."
"Grazie Machiavelli. Now, back to your work. The city still lies under oppression, and we have much to accomplish."

Short Bio: The Romani, or gypsies, have been a long time ally of the Assassin order. The Templars have never been fond of the Romani and as as result the Romani have no love for them. The wandering ways of the Romani and their flagrant violation of the law bothers the Templars. Templars depend on people staying in one place, on controlling the environment that they live in and thus... controlling the very destinies of those that dwell there. Morana's people have long been the target of Templar reprisals. Centuries from now they would be hunted by Adolf Hitler's cruel programs.
Morana, after her parents were killed by Templar agents for hiding an assassin, has long despised the Templars. Since then she has promised her life and her service to helping the Assassin order. The assassin her family rescued pledged his word she was trustworthy and took her to a den. There she was provided a medallion and a writ proclaiming her a friend to the Assassin order wherever she may travel. Later, when her clan moved on, as they always did the master of the den took her aside and presented her with a message to carry to the assassin's den in the direction her clan was traveling.
Since then she has moved with her clan of Romani, carrying messages from Assassin den to Asssassin den while at each stop, learning a little of the Assassin trade. Sometimes it was how to better wield a knife, once it was how to properly craft a smoke bomb to escape Templar ambushes but a surprising number of talents that assassins learn like picking pockets, being stealthy, and climbing about like a monkey were things that the Romani had already taught her.
Personality: Like most Romani Morana is lackadaisical and carefree and this figured greatly into why she wasn't trained to be an Assassin from an early age. She is sultry, seductive and quite the extrovert.
Weaponry: While enjoying the use of poisons, Morana does not use the typical assassin weapons. The hidden blade, for example, is recognizable by many templar agents and thus she prefers traditional knives but supplements these with sharpened hair sticks, blades hidden inside combs and the like.
Family: Morana has no immediate family but a Romani is family to all other Romani. Her tribe is filled with cousins, nephews and the other non-immediate relatives and would work to protect them.
Other?: Gypsy Heritage. There is a reason many dislike gypsies. They are thieves, bandits, brawlers, acrobats, dancers, the disfigured, outcasts and more. They are the very origin of the traveling circus that would come into being years later. In many respects, being raised Romani provides many of the same skills as the Assassin order.
As Romani, surviving on the fringes of society, Morana has developed a number of unscrupulous skills. Most Romani are reviled and viewed as untrustworthy and yet they are exceedingly skilled pick pockets. They have learned the art of moving through a crowd without being noticed which allows them to use their pick pocketing skills. They also teach the art of distraction, using various performances from music and dance or some act of piece of theater like a feigned sickness, injury or lover's spat to allow their fellows an easier time pick pocketing.
Gypsies are incredibly passionate and often resolve their disputes through a healthy dose of violence. These fights are nearly never to the death but the Romani recognize that their passionate lives have a cost, they must occasionally release pent up aggression by inflicting some bruises. Nearly all gypsies are good at wrestling and with flashing knives though a few, particularly those protecting their wagon trains are trained with larger more militaristic weapons.
Appearance: He wears the trademark assassin suit, but completely black instead of white and is rarely seen without it. When he isn't wearing it though, he wear clothes that don't stand out at all. When wearing the assassin clothes, he usually has his hood on.
Bio: He has a very short temper and gets mad at others for making mistakes. He doesn't like talking to the other Assassin's in the order or other people and will mostly only talk when it has to do with a mission. He is skilled for his age, and is trying to become a master assassin.
Its late right now, so if I think of more I'll add stuff tomorrow, unless this is fine.
Name: Isabella, Vanhella
Short Bio: She had been a very troubled kid when she was younger. Being born into a thieves family constantly pushed her into danger and made her learn to adapt fast. Not much is known about her family, only that they had been conning many people out of their money, occasionally even taking money from the royal family. Soon this caused them to get into more trouble then they could handle and a bounty was put on the family. One by one the family dropped like flies and soon she was left only with her sister, in a small time they began to get better, but one terrible night, her sister pushed a man to far causing her to kill her cold in a dark alley. Isabella found her after two days of searching and she went into dark place. She began to look for her sisters killer, but with luck she was about to give up on life. as she raised the blade to her throat she saw a man in a mysterious robe like attire, walk behind a man and kill him, but the odd part was that no one saw and the man placed the body on a bench like he was simply sleeping there. She followed the man and confronted him, almost getting killed in the process and got her ass kicked. She decided that this man was going to teach her what he had done previously and spent a number of days finally convincing him, and she got her foot into the door of the assassins. she trained for 5 years until the man finally said it was time for her to be on her own and she has been on her own ever since.
Personality:She is very discrete and easy to forget making her a formidable assassin. She often likes to watch and see how things play out before approaching and/or fighting. She is very out going personality and loves to flirt and cheat men out of their money. She also loves human interaction and doesn't like to be alone, unless ordered by her older sister, she'd much rather have someone with her. She is a very kind soul, although she is not afraid to kill you, if showing signs that you're her target. She has an excellent ability to persuade people and will use persuasion instead of fighting if possible.
