Detective Biography

Kesla's parents were killed when she was just 9, forcing her to move in with a distant uncle who had no patience for children. She quickly learned that life would never be easy living with the demands of one of the most notorious cat burglars of the time. She was forced to pickpocket at first, having to do so in order to earn her keep, quickly learning that as long as she did well, she was treated well. Otherwise the repercussions were severe, teaching Kesla to learn everything her uncle taught her with precision and speed.

In her teen years, she learned the art of breaking into the homes of the most elite citizens of New York, moving quickly and silently as she ran along rooftops and crawled into windows, stealing some of the most precious pieces of art and historical artifacts ever discovered, while her uncle sold and traded these items to his various contacts all over the world.

Kesla had been doing as her uncle asked, always turning up with the items requested, never telling him about the extra money and jewels she had stolen and stashed away, planning for an escape. Somehow, she could just never bring herself to leave the only family she had ever really known. That was until one day, when she received a notice in the mail from her uncle saying that he had been caught while trying to steal a Jeweled Hookah from the Prince in Shangri La. He would be imprisoned for life, leaving Kesla completely alone.

Now 25, she realized she no longer wished to lead a life of crime, and had saved up a considerable sum that would allow her to do as she pleased. She had never really enjoyed being a thief, but also really didn't ever learn how to do anything else, so she wandered from city to city in search of a purpose. At a loss for what to do next with her life, she sat in the Tricky Mister Bar toying with her drink in hand, when she overheard a conversation between two people behind her.

They were renowned detectives known and feared by any criminal worthy of their trade: Riza Hawkeye and Sal Iva.

During their discussion on how to go about retrieving a treasure that had been stolen, it hit her. Who else would know best the traits of a criminal? Her skills were tremendous, and she had contacts everywhere. Deciding she now knew what she wanted to do, but didn't have a clue as to how to get started, she walked over to the two, forcing them to look up from their discussion.

"So how would someone go about being a detective, anyway?" she asked.

Sal exchanged a look with Riza, and motioned with his hand for Kesla to have a seat.
