Name: Unknown, referred to only by alias, Aliminis.
Appearance: Wears a charcoal black suit, shiny black dress shoes, a pair of white gloves, a vermillion collared shirt and a snow white tie. Wears a dark red, yellow and black scarf which covers the lower half of its face. Is albino with a androgynous hairstyle and bright yellow eyes. Has right chest pocket with the number one embroidered on it in white and red. Carries around a sheath on its right hip as its class mod grenade mod on its left hip and its shield on a white leather belt. Knife used is a straight edge with a noticeable crossguard.
Background: An assassin known throughout all colonized galaxies for its near hundred percent success rate and the inexplicable ability to slow time itself in order to perform its job. Aliminis chose to visit Elpis after hearing rumors that an abandoned Dahl squadron was attacking the Helios moon base stationed there. Very little is known about this being, beyond its favourite snack (banana bread) and the fact that it will never just take cash. Its origins in particular are up to anybody’s interpretations; some say its an abomination from another dimension, others say it was the result of a secret super soldier project.
Personality: Aliminis speaks politely and concisely with little deviation and expresses emotion sparsely and usually through gestures, rather than facial expression. Despite being an assassin, Aliminis barely gives any indication of hostility if there was such a feeling within it.
Class: The Assassin has a large focus on constantly inflicting damage at no defined range, with usage of its action skill, as well as a heavy focus on critical hits. Depending on what skill tree is taken, Aliminis can either be a one-shot killer, a blurred lightning bolt or a lethal rogue.
Melee: A slash with a knife.
Action Skill: Slow Time. Whilst active, everything within a 25 meter radius is slowed down to 10% of its speed. Melee attacking projectiles whilst Slow Time is active will reflect them back towards the enemy that fired the projectile. Reflected projectiles ignore elemental resistance and inflict 500% of their base damage. Attacking enemies whilst they’re in the middle of an attack animation will do a counter attack, causing enemies to flinch; melee counter attacks have a 600% damage bonus. All attacks receive a 1.5 critical damage multiplier. Whilst active, everything appears in inverted colours. 15s Duration, 45s cooldown.
This skill tree is focused on critical damage at any range.
