The Assassin is a member of Viz-Jaq'taar. Trained in martial arts and resistance to magic, she was one of the most feared of the Clan of Mage-Slayers. With the emergence of the Prime Evils into Sanctuary, much of their order has become more public as they track down the demons and those who become corrupted by them.
The Assassin heard of the occurrences in Khanduras and traveled there, hoping to find the cause of the demonic influence in those lands. This action put her hot on the trail of The Dark Wander. She joined forces with the Champions of Sanctuary in their quest.
Although she was seldom recognized along their journey, the traitorous Nihlathak attempted to impress upon her that her skills were unnecessary in the harsh northern lands surrounding Harrogath.
