The Lost Guardian (On hold)
The first six years of Atosha's life were lived in Mother's Grief; the deepest darkest slums that reside in Khlendall, maybe in all of Rii'Zen. All Atosha has known is hunger and sickness.
One day, out of desperation she picks the pocket of a very wealthy man. Instead of hauling her off to the guards to get her hand chopped off, he offers her an opportunity of a life time and a chance to help her dying mother take care of her two younger sisters. . . An opportunity to become an acrobat.
What he doesn't tell her is that he is a world class thief, the very best. On top of training to become an acrobat, she receives training of a different sort.
Now, a Master thief and could be assassin (she's never been asked to kill); her skill even surpassing her Master, she has been asked to retrieve several objects of considerable value. But is the gold gained worth the effort, especially if it's the cost of her life?
