The Novice: Eager to please, this might be his first job. He accepts low pay, and looks the part - and is seemingly discreet, though perhaps is a little too 'excited' about this endeavor. Will he be a talented, young virtuoso killer? Or will his bumbling attempts get him captured, interrogated and have the spotlight shined back on you?
The Freedom Fighter: He or she is one of a dying breed, perhaps of the last of a once mighty elder race, or a long fallen empire. While deep down, he or she knows that history is an endless series of waves of empires rising and falling, he or she feels personally involved in the downfall of their race/hegemony. The Freedom fighter will embark upon any mission that will bring him/her one step closer to restoring the greatness of his/her kin - or at least give him/her some peace of mind.
The Barber: Everyone needs a shave. Decked out in an assortment of expensive clothes, a meticulously trimmed mustache and a waxed bald head, this barber deals with none other than the most polished of the political elite; one at a time. If your client is a blue blooded male, he no doubt sees the barber from time to time. And the slightest nick of the neck with a poisoned razor blade is just so... impossibly deadly.
The Harlequin: An irrational fear of clowns is actually quite common. But for most of us, they are fairly numerous in carnivals, circuses and all other manners of public entertainment and merriment. And really, what assassin wouldn't take advantage of the situation? An event where everyone's identity is hidden, smoke and fireworks hinder visibility and audibility, tight quarters make it hard to walk, and drunken festivity can so easily cause someone to 'fall down', right on top of a shiny, needle sharp dirk.
