Bust of the Faceless Blade by Lionpaws
|Strengths||The Faceless Blade has three action points|
"You've been a thorn in my friend's little cult for far too long. Enough. There's no demon queen here to vouchsafe your life. She'll never know what happened to you and your friends. Perhaps that will set her mind free."
It's a kitsune, wearing little more than a mesh bodysuit and belts covered in knives and potions, her tails the color of a midnight sky and speckled with white roots like the stars.
The Faceless Blade is an optional encounter in the The Siege of Khor'minos. If you defeat the Blood Knight and go to Execute her, the Faceless Blade intercedes and blocks the blow before fleeing with the defeated general.
Grave of Saints
"I struck exactly where I meant to," the assassin says evenly. She flicks her sword under her arm, drawing it clean. "The veins near the heart. To spread the poison faster. I would like to kill you cleanly, but Michael insists you die screaming. I never could say no to him. My apologies."
If you accept Calise's quest to pursue the Ring of Fate, you encounter the Faceless Blade as you're leaving the tomb. She sneaks up on you, stabbing Calise through the chest with a poisoned blade before you realise she's there. The Blade reveals she left Calise alive on purpose to make her death more painful, and that she plans to murder you in spite of Kasyrra's orders. She has extra dialogue if you're a Kitsune, denigrating Keros as the 'August Whore' and 'Lord of Lies'.
If you're victorious, the Blade escapes, leaping backwards off the cliff and disappearing.
"Do you wonder how a kitsune earns a moniker like 'Faceless,' a voice whispers from behind you.
