I’ve always found assassins to be fascinating characters. I mean, they kill people, so they’re the bad guys, right? Except it’s complicated. And they’re not always bad. Sometimes, they’re even the good guys.
We see this kind of dilemma with other character types. Angels who go bad. Vampires who save people. The list goes on.
But assassins are a special kind of quandary. Because they kill for money. Therefore, they chose this life. It wasn’t forced on them.
So, how does one choose to be an assassin? And why? And what does that say about their moral compass?
