- Who she pretends to be: The damsel in distress, the innocent, doe-eyed maid without a care in the world. Harmless, weak, too curious for her own good but impossible to dislike with her bubbly persona. When she’s in character on the streets or hired for parties, this is who she takes on to get close to her targets. An entertainer, it is almost impossible to know this is not her true self.
-Who she really is: Adrenaline junkie, she is rebellious and wild. Sharp witted, she’s actually quite sarcastic when bothered. The harmless part is mostly correct though, as she can deliver a blow like a two week old puppy and take one like a porcelain vase. However what she lacks in offense, she makes up for in defense. Quick on her feet, she is able to avoid trouble by dodging and slipping into alleyways.
Abrielle grew up in the uneventful, middle class family out in the rural village of Lunigiana. Her family owned an inn and stable, and she was the youngest of four children. She had always been the troublemaker of the group, always taking horses out to gallop in the middle of the night, disappearing for days as she went exploring some of the old castles.
One night, an acting troupe passed through the village, staying at their inn. Commedia dell'Arte had started in the 14th century. A form of theater characterized by masked “types,” it was responsible for the advent of the actress and improvised performances based on sketches or scenarios. They tantalized Abrielle with visions of Milano, Verona, Roma, and, in need of a new actress, it didn’t take her a second thought to run off with the troupe the next morning. She hasn’t seen her family since. That was four years ago.
She now spends her days with the troupe, being hired for parties or just starting up shows in the square. When she’s not acting, she spends her time climbing trees, buildings, cliffs, anything to give her a rush. She often runs into the problem of men grabbing her and confusing her with a courtesan when she isn’t wearing her mask. Or they at least are just hoping she’s a courtesan. Generally they are Templar men, and it’s given her a hatred for them. She helps out the Brotherhood when she can, eavesdropping at parties and cuddling up to Templars for information. She’s good at looking innocent, so it usually isn’t very hard.
