Name: Ilxion Illian ( ill-ix-ion ill-ian) Also known as; Lily

Age: 26

Race: Human, Mutation

Crime(s): Murder, Dark Magic, Treason

Profession before exile: Scientist/Tinkerer, Blacksmith

Personality: Lily is quick, not just in her natural speed which is remarkable but also with calculations. She is able to create and plan intricate designs for items that have never been created before. While her speed is often advantageous, it is a reason why she rarely keeps company as very few can keep up with her. Often she will be found mumbling to herself about another new invention she has just begun designing. Due to past experience within the Imperium Lilly is quiet about her thoughts and ideas.

Bio: Ilxion Illian was born to a family of tinkers and blacksmiths. While their professions weren't the greatest, the creations of her family rivaled those of the Royal Crafters. This brought the attention of the Emperor himself toward her family. After demanding weapons and armor the Illian family humbly accepted their role and worked for the Imperium. With the Emperor being their main client, the family produced weapons for war and armor to be enhanced by magic. As the money from the Emperor came in, the Illian family began to raise themselves up. They even had the favor of the Emperor as they became their own noble house of craftsmen.

While the rise of the Illian family was great, so too was their fall. Ilxion, the only child of the Illian family after forty long years, would be the last of their great knowledge. A sickness had befallen the Illian family before she was born and nearly claimed her life in childbirth. Holding fast to the knowledge of her father, and his father before him as far back as any could recount, Ilxion began to create for the Emperor. Though when winter came about, the work of armor and weapons grew to a crawl as one sickness after another plagued her body in the cold days. She knew something had to be done or her family line would end with her, and bearing a child would only postpone the problem she was dealing with.

Upon her16th year, laying under many layers of warm sheets Ilxion had an idea. She would have to alter her body to become resilient. But she could not do this without taking from another source as her bloodline held no magic to assist her. As the new year rolled around and the winter chill fell away she began her crafting. She built for the Emperor the exact amount of weapons and armor he demanded that year, and with some time left she built experiments. Calling upon adventurers to capture creatures that could regenerate, or even manipulate their bodies to resist certain extremes.

It took years of searching and manipulating the creatures the adventurers brought back before she found something she saw as a cure. In her 20th year, Ilxion finished her experimentation and found the mix suitable for human consumption. But to be sure, she tested her final samples on the adventurers who helped her. Slipping the liquid into their drinks was simple, after all, men were easily distracted. After the drunken stupor fell and the adventurers fell asleep in her family's dining hall she dragged each to their own cell for examination. Out of the five adventurers, three awoke the next morning while the other two had seemingly stopped breathing. It was of no consequence as this was a decent success. Before she could test a new modification on her 'cure' she had to first dispose of the beings inside the cages. Though as she neared the cages, two of the remaining three lashed out at her like wild animals. With no magic and little skill with a bow, Ilxion had to find a way to dispose of the beasts at a range before she could begin her new tests.

The idea for a new weapon came to her as she was laid up in her bed two years after she had tested the initial serum. Even bedridden she demanded papers for plans be brought to her. After she had what she wanted, during that entire winter she drew and planned her first design. In the following summer, she began to craft the weapon. She was careful to keep her designs out of the sight of her gossiping maids, though it was her first time handling a combustible substance and a few times she crawled from her workspace ears trickling with blood after the sound of an explosion. Still, every setback only pushed her resolve and eventually in the summer of her 24th year the prototype was finished. She knew not what to call it, but she was at least ready to remove the beasts in the cells. So she did, easily. There was little bloodshed and the black powder had a distinct smell after it had been set off, but nothing seemed to bother her. Tossing the designs for her new weapon into a secure lockbox, she hid the weapon with it and began the finishing touches on her serum.

In the latter half of her 25th year, the serum was completed. It took only five more groups of test subjects to perfect it and just in time for the winter. Taking the completed serum Ilxion felt the plague of sickness beginning to crawl over her body, yet the chill winter ailments were halted by a new warmth in her chest. It worked. She was finally successful. But all was not well. A maid had heard and snuck looks into the secret doings of Ilxion and reported them to the Imperium. It wasn't long before the last member of the house of Illian was dragged, in chains, before a trail. The trail was long and filled with many calling for Ilxion to be executed. But she demanded what she did was to protect herself and keep her productivity up all year round. In the end, she was branded a practitioner of forbidden arts, traitor, and murderer. She was the end of her family's line. In the last moments, as the gold band was placed around her neck Ilxion closed her eyes and let the last of Illian die with her old name. Her new name and life was going to be pure, as pure as a lily.

Age: 19
Race: Human (Female)
Crime(s): attempted murder, assaulting a police officer, theft, armed robbery, murder, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
Profession before exile: Conman
Personality: A little rough around the edges. She is always ready to challenge anyone that tries to get in her way. Jacob does have a sweet side, usually only seen when she's drunk or high. unless you can talk her down from her anger.
Bio: Jacob Marks is the daughter of Olivia and Tanner Marks. Born with black hair and Green eyes, traits she gained from her mother. Her childhood was just as normal as any other kids' but things took a turn for the worse when Jacob turned 11.
Three days after her 11th birthday, Olivia Marks went missing. Nobody saw her for 3 weeks. Then the police brought her father down to the police station to identify a body. Her mother was murdered by a gang member who was trying to get initiated into the crew.
Eventually her and her Father, Tanner, moved past it and moved out of the country.

Jacob's father died when she was about 17, car crash, he was drunk.
She decided to disappear and start a new life, which turned out to be alot harder than she thought. She met a man named Charlie who took her in and helped her get back on her feet. It came with costs though.
Charlie eventually asked Jacob to start selling drugs, as a way of saying thank you, and Jacob agreed.
One thing led to another and Jacob was eventually Charlie's personal hitman at 19.

What resulted in her getting caught was a fight she had with Charlie where he called the police on her for "attempting to murder" him.
