The Ghost Hand
Sylven's five most important lieutenantst. They can also be considered as his "companions" or "comrades" though the young Half-Elf tends to not show a lot of attachment to them.
In this composition I decided to place them from the most recent hired one (Merukan) to his very first associate (Zeryn).
So let's try to introduce this crew.
MERUKAN: As you can notice it, he is tall... Very tall. Thin and muscular. Three adjectives to describe him. You can also add deceitful, strong and crual. Merukan is a mighty force but this doesn't mean he is stupid ("I see, I hit" is not for him, trust me...). Within the Ghost Hand, he is in charge of racket, kidnapping and executions (mostly within the organization itself). His name is feared by every criminals, he is known for enjoying killing and torturing... and for being maybe the only man able to defeat Sylven himself. Merukan seems to be very protective with the other lieutenants, he has a kind of paternal behaviour toward them, despite his impressive appearance. He can be very calm and quiet (his main hobby is reading and playing chess) but during battles he becomes a true monster; his weapon is usually a "simple" chain, however, looking it carefully, you can notice the little blades welded to some links (sadistic, you said ?). He used to be a street gangster who faced the authority of the Ghost Hand, killing some henchmen Sylven sent him before the Half-Elf decided to solve the problem himself. Their very first fight ended with a draw and Sylven offered him to join his organization...
Concerning his design, I really wanted to give him a lout look, so well, black leather, chains, belts and piercings. Not mentionning his unlikely hairdo >_< Among the five, Merukan is my fav and he really has an important role in the story...
GILROY: She is a woman... a tough woman dressing and acting like a man (she bandages up her breasts to hide them). She was a respected commander in the royal army of Markland but she deserted when the Civil War began; so she finally retrained to the civilian life as a bodyguard for noblemen and rich mechants. This is while protecting one of those lords she met Sylven who had a contract on him. Gilroy obviously protected her customer but soon realized he was despised her and did not even respect her as a warrior. Too bad for him, Gilroy can easily bear grudges... and was suddenly very interested in working for the Ghost Hand. Among Sylven's comrades, she is maybe the most loyal, honest and upright; however, she considers a woman has no right to be feminine or weak within such organization, this is why she acts and want to be treated as the other men (and this is also why she is always arguing with Kael >_
