Name: Tressa Bridona - The name she was given by the hunters' guild. A normal name without much meaning.
The Black Shadow - her hunters name. She's a deadly assassin and she normally wears black. She is like a shadow that sneaks up on you.
Black Widow - Being cold and merciless like a black widow spider. She was given this after doing many hunts and not showing an ounce of emotion.
Tressa has long black wavy hair and a pair of amber colored eyes. She stands at five feet, and six inches tall, weighing somewhere in the one hundred's. Most days the female wears a black buttoned vest with coattails, and a white, sleeveless undershirt that exposes part of her midriff with white shorts that may be connected to her shirt, although it is partly obscured by the vest. Tressa also wears a detached scarf-like collar around her neck. She wears black low-heeled boots and stockings that start off black at her hips, but gradually fade to purple as they near her shoes. There are small, white, flame-like markings on the outside of her stockings. She wears black ribbons on both of her arms, with a black detached sleeve with a silver band on her left arm. Tressa also has a headband she frequently wears, with a bow attached that resembles a pair of cat ears.
Personality: Tressa has no memories of her life before she was found in the Estersand. She only knows the life of a hunter and assassin. She doesn't have emotions, or at least she doesn't think she does. She feels things from time to time but only with people who are the complete opposite from her. Those who are from the world of light, help her to feel again. She seeks out those types of people to be around, to help her feel things.
She is cold, curious, and dull at times. But other times she can be clever, loyal, and honest. She's the type that the more she is around someone the more she starts to act like them. At times she can be like a doll but she is striving to become a better person, a person who would live in the light and feel things normally.
Original World: Ivalice
Current World: Ivalice
History: She wasn't sure what world she was born in but she was only a young child when she was found by the hunters' guild. She was wandering the estersand with no memories and only wearing rags for clothing. She was taken in by the guild and taught how to be a hunter and assassin. The young girl was taught at first to not have any emotions but to repay her debts to those who helped her. So she gave her life to the guild to repay the debt for saving her.
She spent years working for the guild and eventually took up a few side jobs for assassinations. Since she was young and didn't have emotions she really didn't recognize right from wrong. She had to be taught by the guild and didn't quite understand everything. Why was it okay to kill monsters but not men? She wondered that many times when she was young but never got an answer.
The girl was given a mission to assassinate the princess at the time. It was Rena Dalmasca. Tressa was able to sneak into the palace dressed as a maid and made her way through the palace to assassinate the younger girl. She was small and looked like a maid in training so she was able to easily get through the palace. However, once the girl held a knife to the princesses throat she was caught by the younger princess, Selvaria. Who quickly pushed her away from her sister and screamed for help. The palace guards were able to detain the young Tressa with some difficulty. After all, she was a trained girl.
Tressa was sentenced to death but Rena saved her. She called off the execution calling it inhumane and wanted to know why the black haired girl wanted to end her life. Tressa told her, her life story. She was in awe with Rena. This girl was everything she wanted to be. She easily displayed her emotions and had goodness in her heart. She was the light that Tressa needed to survive. Satisfied with Tressa's story, Rena told her to go back to the guild and quit her job as an assassin. If she continued to protect Rabanastre from monsters she wouldn't be sentenced to death.
After thinking long and hard about everything Tressa decided to repay her life debt to Rena. However, she couldn't do so until she repayed her debt to the guild. It took her a few more years before the guild leader told her she was free to choose her own life, but by then Rena was long gone. The princess had run away and Tressa had no idea how to find her. So she waited, waited until the day she could begin to learn how to be a normal person with normal feelings. She was sure Rena would help her with this, and she would repay her debt to her by being her bodyguard.

Weapons and Chains
Variant Ballistic Chain Scythe Pistol Form
The weapon is carried in a thick, gray colored sheath with a sharp edge, similar to an oversized cleaver. Although serving as a sheath, it does possess a cutting edge and can be used effectively as a weapon. When the Variant Ballistic Chain Scythe is unsheathed, it appears to be a dark gray katana and is equally as effective as, if not more than, its sheath. The katana also has a pistol built into its guard, which can be used to fire at point blank range. In pistol form, the weapon resembles a kama, with the gun barrel pointed in the opposite direction of the sharp end.
Chains: (leave blank)
