Main Article: Crosscut

Where he came from, no one knows. Who he is, not even he remembers. What he has planned, only the soon-to-be dead learn. Not much of a conversationalist, Crosscut likes to talk with his blades. And usually, that's the last thing one hears.

Crosscut is an assassin with sociopathic and sadistic tendencies. He has a childish personality, refering to his victims as 'toys' and wanting to 'play' with them. He can become quite upset wehn he doesn't get what he wants.

Omnicore

Omnicore

Omnicore possesses neither patience nor tolerance towards anything that does not revolve around her quest for the perfect weapon. Very little is known about her, which is more due to her being nose-down into her work and not talking to others than any other mysterious reasons. She has spent years working on creating the perfect weapon, incorporating parts of her own body to increase power throughput to the device. If one looks closely, they might notice that she has added a great deal of her body parts to make this happen perhaps maybe even all of them.
