"I am not a partier I am an assassin, who kills people for a living and it being the dangerous job it is and that I would quite like to live past my twenties, I spend every waking hour training. Making sure I have the necessary skills to live to see the next day".The main character is a young apprentice assassin whose father, Serghar Kaltos, was perhaps the greatest assassin to ever set up shop in the Calixus Sector. Attelus has to constantly live in his father's shadow. Born and raised in the recently discovered Agri world Elbyra, he is a bit more idealistic and kind than an assassin should be but this could soon change. He is a chain smoker but ironically is strongly against the use of harder drugs.
"Well if you call me “dear” one more time you will find yourself sorely lacking a head."She was recently employed by Glaitis. Though she is the same age as Attelus, she holds the rank of full assassin and is extremely ruthless while at it.
"And kid if you want to sheath your blade in her may I suggest using your “other” blade instead."A senior mercenary of Taryst's organization, he is an ex-guardsman, an explosives expert, and the leader of Elandria's and Attelus little squad.
'Torris tilted his head, “like the old times, eh,” he echoed in good humour. “Kid you may have a very, very long list of issues and character flaws, but despite that we like ya. For some reason I can’t think of yet but maybe we’ll live long enough to figure that out one day.”'Another senior mercenary under Taryst, Torris is an ex Arbitrator from Malfi and one could say the heart of the team. Like Garrakson he has a dirty sense of humour, but is more discerning and observant because of his background.
