These days, Soka is known simply as the “queen of assassins” in Barbarose City but what most people don’t realize is that she came from much more humble roots. Growing up in a ratty orphanage with her siblings (including her twin brother, Rainn), she realized early that there was no salvation for her or her siblings there so she ran away with them at the age of ten.
Forced to live as urchins in the streets, Soka took her first life at the age of twelve in self-defense from a slaver. The feeling of the knife sliding into his body and the blood pouring out of the wound onto her hand changed her forever. Soon she was killing not just because it paid well but also because it was fun.
Her talents eventually caught the attention of a certain Minkx assassin who invited her to become an apprentice. Under the tutelage of the Minkx, Soka learned all about the various ways to end a life; knives and poisons were her favorite lessons of all.
She didn’t obtain her royal status, however, until it was discovered that she was bonded with a Death Wisp, making her a Death Gazer Spell Caster. This allowed her to kill anyone she wanted just by making prolonged eye contact. It wasn’t long before the student became the master and others were seeking out Soka to learn her trade secrets. After a couple of more years, she founded the Crimson Claw assassin guild where she lectures regularly to her students on all the secrets that she has picked up in her life on Erridose.
