Tathtlasss

"Tatha" the Tattoo artist; assassin for hire

Description:

Tathtlasss looks like a lithe, slender human female. Her smooth, dusky skin is a perfect counterpoint for her black hair and dark eyes. The only hints of her serpentine nature are her forked tongue, pointed teeth, and a few scales along the nape of her neck and spine. Though her long hair usually covers these scales, she further conceals them with a henna-dye “tattoo” of ornate scales edged in many monster heads. She reapplies the design every few months using her professional skills and a set of angled mirrors. Should anyone notice and remark on the design, Tathtlasss passes it off as a slave brand burned into her flesh years ago by a cruel slaver who kidnapped her. Fortunately, she claims, her kin hunted him down and slew him before his caravan could reach the rich slave markets he was heading for.

Bio:

Born and reared in the cellars of a major port by yuan-ti slavers, Tathtlasss has dwelt in cities all her life, hiding among humans. She earned her coins initially by stealing and later by slaying. Tathtlasss loves to kill — humans in particular — and since she learned that some humans would pay to have others slain, she’s lived quite well.

Under the name “Tatha,” she operates a makeup, tattooing, and bodypainting service in a storefront in the wealthy part of town. She specializes in superb facial makeup and swirling, ornamental body paint designed to distract viewers from body plumpness when skin-revealing gowns are worn. This lucrative business also allows her to peddle scents, drugs, and poisons on the side to a clientele of wealthy but jaded women while learning about the important people of the city. Between her two professions, she’s amassed quite a lot of wealth, which she’s invested in properties in many other cities.
