Very little is known about Lucy other than she has a tendency to show up exactly when she’s needed. She appeared one day in her borough after a pack of mercenaries attacked it, causing devastation in their wake. Without hesitation, she eviscerated the lot of them, leaving an example for others as a warning. Since then, she has not left and remains an ever-vigilant, if not silent, protector. Born “Lucille von Goethe,” Lucy was a member of an organization that raised and groomed young women to be the perfect assassins. These women were hired to undertake the worst and often most dangerous missions with swift and deadly efficacy. Tired and jaded from the years of espionage and assassination on behalf of powerful figureheads within the criminal underworld, she defied her masters and fled. She now fights to maintain her freedom and to protect the innocent, as well as bring down the seedy underworld that created her. In her spare time she enjoys reading, sarcastic needlepoint and has a deep love for sloths and puppies.
