Description[edit | edit source]
Assassins specialize in one thing: killing. Assassins are amoral in the extreme, ending the lives of others for money or the thrill of killing.
Assassins sometimes have abilities that let them directly destroy other creatures, but for the lower-rarity versions 'deathtouch is usually sufficient representation. The majority of assassins are black, with three of the remaining (the two red and one blue) being color pie bends. The last is a green deathtouch Kraul in the cult of the assassin queen Vraska.
