Equius Zahhak and Nepeta Leijon
Weapon(s) of choice:
- Fists/Brass knuckles
- Claws/Throwing knives
Method: “Beast in the cage” - hold back unless holding back is unnecessary; important to appear intimidating but kills usually fall short of such nature; extremely efficient in abiding by what is detailed in the contract; Equius tends to have a habit of taking contracts exclusively from the wealthy, which doesn’t sit still with Nepeta
- Equius belongs to a family that specializes in biomechanical engineering. He is a proper sort of fellow that emphasizes poise and efficiency, so he has a habit of sticking exceptionally close to exactly what the contract entails. This could also be due to the fact that he usually takes solicitations from those of the upper-class nature, and he does not like to disappoint. Though he is capable of brutality, Equius is very controlled and advises his ward to do the same.
- Nepeta is Equius’ young ward. She was placed under his care around the time he turned 19 because of the sudden disappearance of her mother [who had also been a legendary hitwoman]. Nepeta is inexperienced but ruthless, and is constantly trying to show Equius that she can take care of herself, eager to get him off her back about her unconventional [according to Equius] methods and her safety. She knows he means well, but the smothering can frustrate her.
