Elysande Forde

Elysande Forde (a.k.a. The Last Kiss)

Elysande Forde was a Lady of the House of Forde, one of the royal families who dwelled in the Capital City of Kord nearly 100 years prior to the takeover by the Sorrano family. Elysande's family had held, for centuries, that they were the rightful rulers of the kingdom, but they were kept in their place by the Bailey family who allowed the Fordes to maintain royal stature, but not to rule in any capacity. When Elysande's father, Willis, pressed the issue of rule in a most forceful nature in the year -51 B.S., King Thiles Bailey had Willis imprisoned, demanding that Willis swear his allegiance to the Baileys. When Willis refused, he was publicly executed as a show of force to the people of the kingdom not to go against the Bailey family's rule. Elysande was devastated. Her father dead, her mother dying of heartbreak, Elysande ultimately made it her life's mission to destroy the Baileys, person by person, no matter their age or role within the family. She reached out to the Daggers, training for years before seeking her vengeance in earnest. Elysande publicly swore her allegiance to the Baileys and did so convincingly, earning access to the family that she used to execute many of her killings. She told no one of her plans and carried out her killings brilliantly, utilizing various methods depending upon her target. Her first victim was Prince Ryann, younger brother to the heir and future king, Prince Giles. Now in his late 20's, Prince Ryann was, like so many others, utterly awestruck by Elysande's beauty and charm. She seduced him and arranged a meeting outside of the Capital City of Kord where they could be alone, the prince knowing that such a meeting would be forbidden. Elysande convinced the prince to disrobe and wait for her in bed, but when she appeared, she was armed to the teeth, slaying the unarmed (and much smaller) man easily, giving him a single kiss upon the lips as he drew his last breath. She disposed of Prince Ryann in the Howling Sea, weighing down the body so as to never be discovered, and after weeks of searching the prince was finally declared dead. Elysande's murders carried on, year after year, taking her time between each, her patience allowing her to persist in the slayings without being detected, even managing to successfully frame others for the murders. At last, in the year -26 B.S., Elysande had her sights set on King Thiles who had grown quite old and frail. Her efforts were successful, but she was forced to sacrifice her own life to take his. As she lay dying, Elysande confessed to each and every murder, her last words a warning to the family about their abuse of power. In the end, Lady Elysande Forde, The Last Kiss, confessed to the murders of 19 members of the Bailey family. When Prince Giles became King Giles, he failed to heed Elysande's warning. King Giles instituted wide-reaching and oppressive laws, infuriating the populace to such an extent that Giuliano Sorrano was able to raise a large army and end the Bailey family's centuries-long rule forever, establishing the reign of the Sorranos.
