She was found as an infant on the doorstep of Skothamor´s Senior
Academy, and they had no choice but to take her in. She was seen as the
school´s token, their mascot, their lucky charm.
As Kyra grew older, her beauty only grew, but a beauty in a harsh sense.
Ghostly lips, icy eyes, snow-blonde hair that flowed rhythmically down her back.
She wasn´t a confident girl, but if she didn´t have her way, a plot was
She stayed to herself, in her own private quarters, with only a dog to
console her- a beautiful white German Shepherd, by the name of Glacieria. She
too had her mistress´es crystal-blue eyes and elegant complexion.
One rainy Monday, another baby was deposited on the doorstep. A baby
with grey, stormy eyes and jet-black hair.
Kyra´s room would have to be used for the infant´s chamber.
So Kyra, when she was 10, was removed from her private lair to make way
for the child.
This didn´t agree with Kyra.
And as there were no more rooms available for Kyra, the horrid truth was that
she’d have to be moved to a regular care home.
None accepted a potentially vicious German Shepherd.
In a panicked rush of anger and annoyance, she approached the child,
blade in her hand- and took its life. Blood arced a beautiful pattern down the
baby´s face. Blood was beautiful on the faces of the deceased in Kyra´s eyes.
After killing one, it became an addiction.
The child´s early demise had changed something in her.
She left the school with Glacieria at her side when she was 17, and made
her way from village to village.
She wrecked havoc on anyone who had a face that might have been
desirable once a corpse.
And every time she would commit a murder, she would cut a ´K´ on the
right cheekbone, and a backwards ´K´ on the other cheek with the victims own
blood. And she would leave, with a flourish of her black cloak, hood hanging
over her pale face and blonde hair.

inside the animal nursery was just too small.
food time! Dinner! Sausage! Treat! Good girl! Fetch!" Scarlett shouted, in
a rushed panic to get the little thing out.
lunch! Breakfast! WALKIES!" The puppy stopped playing at the announcement
of the W-Word. In excitement to go for a W-A-L-K, the puppy bounced outside,
tail waggling a million times an hour.
STOP!" shouted Scarlett, scrambling out of the kennel in a cloud of
sawdust. She ran as fast as she could outside again, grabbing her horse´s reins
and clicking enticingly. She saw Felix fighting off a few stray opponents- and
then saw Him. A particularly large warrior, bound in muscle, with no teeth and

inside of her. She jumped to the side, so the dagger lodged itself in the
ground, so deep that it was hard to pull back out. The Aussie, giving
occasional pitchy growls, launched itself at the warrior, fastening its
needle-like teeth into his nose. The warrior whirled round and round, the puppy
hanging off him like a flag, screaming at the spurting blood from his nose.
This gave Felix time to jab his sword into the warrior, killing him instantly.
The puppy fell to the ground also, licking his paws and wagging his tail.
Scarlett collapsed feebly to the ground next to her.

brave puppy would need a name. She looked at the corpse of the warrior.

rested her lips on her fists, whispering.
