Character Background Edit

The Black Cross (aka Dorothy Judge) was a woman that operated in Caribbean on the behalf of the Radical branch of the new West Indies Rite of the Templar Order. As a Black Cross, it was up to Dorothy to make sure the Templars stayed on the right course – not acting like the Roman Rite had done. At the end of a failed Templar-conspiracy, an assassination attempt on the Cross made her loose her right arm.

Fan Edit

(Low Profile, Front)

Stealthily approaching her target from the front, the Black Cross savagely kicks their left leg. As they clutch their injured limb, she reaches for her bladed fan, still folded, and then slashes her victim across the side of the abdomen with the fan's spine. The Black Cross then swiftly follows up this attack by impaling her target's spine with her weapon, before storing it as they collapse, paralyzed and bleeding out.

(Low Profile, Back)

(High Profile, Front)

Dashing towards her target from the front, the Black Cross leaps upward, spinning in the air like a pirouette, while taking out her bladed fan and slashing their throat. She then lands daintily on her feet and restores her fan to its holder, while her victim's dead body lies on the floor.

(High Profile, Back)

Sprinting up to her target from behind, the Black Cross rolls over their back with her legs extended in the air, before landing on her knees in front of them.

(Low Profile, Back)

Casually walking over to her target from behind, the Black Cross draws her hook, before reaching around and stabbing it into her victim's neck. As they stand vulnerable from the blow, she closes the distance and grasps their shoulder, before the Black Cross twists her victim and wrenches her weapon sharply to the right, slitting their throat and spinning them, where they stumble and fall to their death.

(High Profile, Front)

Rushing over to her target, the Black Cross swings her hook in an upwards arc and embeds its tip into their abdomen. Following this, she cruelly wrenches her weapon vertically, shredding her victim's internal organs, before latching his hook under their chin and viciously ripping it out, lurching them forward to die.

(High Profile, Back)

Sprinting up behind her target, the Black Cross stabs her hook into the side of the victim's mouth, before swinging them around and slamming their body to the ground.
