The grand country of Italia had seen much prosperity within it's recent years. Science, literature, theater, and numerous other forms of discovery have made their mark on the various cultures that scatter the small patch of land. Well, small would be a little vague, seeing as how Italy is a country. Nonetheless, it's a small country, yet it harbors some of the greatest minds known to mankind. Leonardo Da Vinci, for example. Or Michael Angelo. However, despite these famous names, there have been several infamous names that are rarely heard. They are the whispers that only thieves dare to speak. The names of a handful of men, who have sworn their allegiance to no one. These prowlers stalk the night, hunting down the prey which they seek, taking extra care to draw no attention. They are masters of the sword, legendary thieves, and overall, fierce combatants. They are...
In the month of April, around Mid Day, two men are walking through the streets of Venice. The sounds of soft music and bustling merchants fill the air, easing the city into a sense of glorious wonder. However, grave news is about to strike the city, along with the rest of the country of Italy. DeMario Esposito, an Italian nobleman, known throughout the country, has just been declared Pope. Something like this has never been heard of. In fact, it's impossible for a nobleman to be crowned such a holy title. Of course the people know this, but no one dares to question the actions of the Vatican. However, there's always those who shall stand out in the crowd. Those who will shout back when told to keep quiet. In our case, these people are the Order of Assassins. They know Esposito had planned this somehow. What's worse the elders of the Order fear the man may have some doing in the recent passing of the former Pope.
Afraid of what the new holy ruler would do to Italy, the elders have instructed two men of the order to carry out their will. These men are among the top in their society. Each skilled all around, yet each specializes in one specific thing; whether it be assassination, interrogation, swordplay, or a number of other things. These men are asked to journey to Rome, the capital of Italy, and home to the Vatican. There, they are to investigate the suspicious rising of DeMario Esposito to the position of Pope and his ring of followers ranging from military officials to other noblemen. They are also instructed to look into the dissaperances of a pair of sisters, who may somehow be linked to Esposito's rise to power. But, when confronted by these women, the assassins must make a choice. Do they continue on with their mission, disregarding the sisters, or do they give in to their emotions?

"Bella..Have you wondered why the Pope wants us here? I didn't think father had anything to do with the Vatican.." Alessandra sighed a bit, as she glanced around. Though a scowl soon took place on her features once more as 2 of of the Popes guards walked up to them. Fighting baack the urge to run, Alessandra looked towards the two men. "May we help you?" She questioned, sarrcasm evident in her tone. We've been sent to retreive you and return you to your quarters. There's been a disturbance in the city, and the Pope dosen't want either of you put in danger. The guard stated, while he took a gentle hold of Alessandra's upper arm, the second guard doing the same to her sister. "What do you mean a disturbance? What's going on?" That will be discussed later. For now, we must you get you two back. Let's go. The second guard told Alessandra sternly, while they began marching the girls back to the Chruch. Just wonderful.. Alessandra thought, scowling a bit as she sighed.
Theo placed both of his hands in front of him with a smile, then chuckled. His bracer on his arm, wasn't just a bracer. It show alittle only in view of the girls sight. The guard on the other hand wasn't enjoying Theo's smile at all. "Hey, hey. There's no need to get mad." Theo said. Then sighed, as he knew this was going to end badly. On those bracers was something he made him self, alittle machine, that held a blade, and projected it out from the wrist. It was hidden well enough for the guards not to see it, plus there was another one on the other wrist as well. Theo looked, as he backed away. The guards pulled out there swords from the scabard.
"Cazzo!" Theo said under his breath seeing the swords from there home. Theo looked at the two guards, as he smiled. "This isn't good, not at all?" He looked at the two girls alittle backing up, as the lighr shinned on his leather plated armor, it was beautiful with a ingraved finishing to it. On the bracer as well, and over the boots. The waight of this armor was easy to wear, and run in. The wind blow as it took the hood from over his head. The guards seen this, then looked scaning Ezotheo. Theo looked, as he sighed alittle placing his hands down his expression change within a instant eyes showed nothing. If you looked through them you'd think there looking through you. There was no telling what was going to happen, sense the guards was armor.
"There's no need for this? I'm sure both of us don't what this to end badly?" Theo said with a calm voice, and walked slowly towards the guards. One of the guards dashed forward towards Theo attacking with a forwards thrust. The swords tip shinned, and glimmed. Theo stepped to the side placing a left hand on the hilt of the sword. He'd grasp it tightly, throwing a punch into the the guards face making him let go of the sword, and stagger backwards. Theo quick flipped the sword grabbing the hilt with his right hand. He looked straight at both of the guards. The other guard dashed forward with attack, but Theo moved the sword parrying it. He'd used the guards motion as he ramming the swords tip straight into a wall.
"I would love to play around with you two alittle more. But this isn't the time, or place." Theo said with a smile, as he throw the sword to the ground. He placed both hands behind him grabbing his hood, as he flings it back over his head. He smiled, as the shadowed covered his eyes, but only his mouth was seen. Theo looked like he could be twonty years old, his hair was brown, eyes same color. His height was about 5.9 or 5.7. He looked pretty athletic. Theo bowed then walked away, He'd disappear around acorner. Once there Theo climbed to the roof, then peeked down watching the two girl, and guards.
Theo waitted for movement to start, so he could follow from behind. There was always waitting to do, but he does mind at all. He'll wait for years if needed.
(ooc-I hope this is good enough for me character. I'll be following behind.)
The woman blushed slightly, letting out a laugh as she quickly crossed the room to the bed. Scooping up the old rabbit, she hugged it for a moment before setting it down. Alessandra knew she was a bit old to be carrying around a stuffed rabbit, but it was just something she couldn't be without. Her parents had given it to her when she was about 4 years old, and Alessandra had a hard time parting with the old rabbit. Shaking her thoughts away though, she turned her gaze to her sister, a slight smile on her lips. "Maybe this won't be so bad..We'll be able to figure out why we're really wanted soon." She told her, tilting her head a bit.
