The Past -
Born in ancient Britain
to a beautiful healer named Deidre who was brutally raped by a Roman soldier,
Raina grew up hating the Romans. As she watched the barbaric Romans continue to
rape and invade her homeland, she struck back the only way she knew how. First
in the guise of a young camp girl, she assassinated drunken knights and then as
she grew older, fought openly alongside the defenders of her homeland or seduced
her way into the beds of the higher ups where they learned just how deadly her
kiss could be. Her passion and her skill caught the attention of Nicholas
Giovanni who was as enamored with her beauty as much as he was her talents. But
for once he did not try and bring her to his bed. Instead, he trained her to
become a silent killer, using her gender as a cover if her enemies were foolish
enough to dismiss a woman. He taught her honor in a kill, and the need for the
caution and planning.
After some time, she became responsible for overseeing the Giovanni forces. And
somehow, along the way, she had fallen in love with Nicholas Giovanniís
pureblood son, Julian. But Julian was already married, to a young woman named Nicole.
A woman that Raina liked very much. She vowed that she would never be the other
woman, never be the mistress. She knew that she could have had a place in Julianís
bed, but she could never have his heart for he already had a wife to love. She
was only a distraction and she could only bring the couple pain. She had to
With a weeping heart, she left the Giovanni family all together to find a way to
combat her pain. She continued to use her skills and became an assassin for hire
of sorts, fooling herself into believing that money was a substitute for love.
When the Diablo Family offered her more money than she had ever received for an
extended position, she accepted.
Over time she learned to feel nothing, but the job she was paid for. She learned
to savor the hunt and the kill. But her life as an assassin and her life as a
woman are two separate things.
She is loyal to the Diablos because they pay her well not because of her love
for them. In fact she interacts seldom with the family save for Bastian whom she
has had an off again off again relationship with. However, that relationship
is a very destructive one...for both parties. She'd rather feel pain than nothing at all.
When she is not doing a job, you can find her in a museum, at a Broadway show, etc as she adores the Arts.
