Name: Serena Carreno
Personality: Serena is not an openly trusting person, everyone she meets or already knows are treated with the same equal weariness. By nature Serena is a loner, she rarely wants to get involved with people unless they can be of use to her or she can gain something in return from them. Most people would probably describe her as fiery and feisty, someone who doesn’t know when to hold her tongue in dangerous situations. Serena’s outer shell is as cold as the silver of her eyes. She generally acts like a bitch and will push away any sort of human companionship but she is not below sleeping around to gain information. While she can sometimes appear gently and kind, Serena is a dab hand with a gun and she will not hesitate slaughtering someone in order to come out on top. Of course, Serena is as soft as a bunny when it comes to her family, who she is fiercely protective of. If you want to, for any reason, get a reaction out of her all you have to do is mention her brother or mother. A few words to sum her up are: Arrogant, confident, violent, untrustworthy, conniving, sly, colorful, and mysterious and a damn good thief.
Weapons: Twin daggers and a Desert Eagle .50 cal, both were gifts from an old friend.
Position: Freelance assassin....Full time thief.
History: Serena and her older brother Xander were adopted at young ages by a woman of wealthy standing. The woman knew what it was the siblings were and had chosen them for their blood alone. She made them attend lessons in defence and taught them how to use their demonic powers to the best of her knowledge. Despite knowing that their new mother was only using them in order to deal with her enemies in high society, the siblings loved her. As the years ticked by Xander and Serena both grew up to become completely different people. Xander opted to abandon his demon side and settled down with a family while his Serena continued to excel in assassinations. Their adoptive mother passed away at the ripe old age of 86 and left her fortune to the two siblings. Serena gave the house to Xander and only took a small portion of her inheritance. She felt that she was already making enough with her private work.
Serena currently lives in 3 bedroom apartment alone and spends most of her free time either shopping or in meetings with people wanting to sign a contract with her. While she is bound to follow any contract that she has signed, Serena will not stand for being misused. If she feels the second party are being unjust or using her, she will pull out of the contract or even kill the creator. Serena has only one creative outlet which is playing the piano and the piano she has now was a gift from Xander and she is immensely fond of it. Serena is enjoying her life and the games she gets to play with people of the world. However, she is becoming far too brave and risky….Who knows when the day will come when she is trapped in a metal cage like the beast that she is….
The clouds above grew darker with the ending of another day. Behind them peeked the last rays of winter sunlight that did nothing to warm the soul. The snow that covered the ground in an endless blanket seemed to sparkle like the dust of a diamond had been scattered by generous hands. Nearby a group of children were being shepherded out of a park, their cheeks reddened by the bitter bite of the cold. Despite their numb hands and noses they all continued to smile and giggle like this had been the greatest day ever. The adults, while being attentive, carried on speaking in low hushed voices. No doubt they were gossiping about ‘Mrs. So and So’ from ‘you know where’ doing the dirty with ‘Mrs. Pure’s husband’. “Ah…So noisy…” Most would see this image as something of beauty; a sight that one would feel the need to stand still and soak in. The darkened silhouettes, the laughter, the snow! Oh the snow and its way of purifying everything in white! But…Serena, well…she wasn't most people.
“That sound ruins my appetite…Would you not agree, Mr. Carter?” The white haired female smiled deviously as she raised a glass of champagne to her pink lips. The man opposite from where she sat chuckled for a few beats before mimicking his female companion in drinking. The lines of age and wisdom lined the man’s facial features. He was in his late 40’s, 20 years Serena’s senior, but it didn't stop the albino female leaning across and placing a small chaste kiss on his lips. “Let’s get out of here…I am in the mood for some warmth after spending this last hour outside drinking champagne…” Her silver eyes sparkled along with the flickering candle light that shone from the center of their table. When her date had suggested dining alfresco in this weather, Serena had been skeptical. However, now her mind had been changed, this had not been so bad after all.
The couple walked together hand in hand talking about past adventures and swapping business ideas. As they reach their destination, a high class hotel, Mr. Finnegan Carter pulled out his wallet and strolled towards the front desk, while Serena took the moment to sit down on a plush sofa in the waiting area. Finnegan had not stopped smiling once today. He had stressed to Serena earlier how he wanted to make their relationship known to the world. Naturally, Serena had agreed to this and he had morphed into an even happier being….If that was even possible. “Such an idiotic man…”Hidden behind her long tresses of white hair, Serena smirked revealing sharpened canine teeth. Her once silver eyes were replaced with bloody red ones that held a type of emotion not known to man. She was letting Mr. Carter enjoy himself for one reason. That reason was simple enough; soon he will be dead. He was her next target and boy had he been easy to lure in.
“Serena? Are you ready?”
“For you dear…I am always ready~” Serena smiled brightly up at the man as she accepted his hand and stood up. “Tonight we celebrate the ending of our old lives~” She kissed his cheek fondly, her eyes flashing from silver to red and back again. It had been a while since she last indulged a human for such a long period of time. Alas, all things must end and this contract was worth 2million bucks in cold hard cash. She had plans for that money and they didn't involve poor Mr. Carter. As the kindly older male unlocked the door, Serena’s ugly demonic blood stirred restlessly…The door had barely opened an inch before Serena had tackled Finnegan into the room....Mouth open, a snarl escaping her lips….a muffled scream…then silence….Silence always followed Serena…waiting behind the aura of death like a shadow.
