A title which cannot be bought, only earned.
-Dimi & Janet
The highest title that an agent can hold at W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P.
is Elite Espionage
. Elite Espionage
agents are the best, most accurate, and most useful operatives in existence. They possess rare skills and work extremely well under pressure. They exibit the ability to hold their own, but also work well with others. Being considered the most revered and valued spies in the agency, special precautions are put in place to ensure their safety and wellfare. This includes providing them with partners who rank just below or at the same caliber as they are, equipping them with restricted weaponry, and giving them access to the most advanced technology W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P.
has to offer.
Few agents acquire this title. Some have been employed for years and still have not achieved Elite Espionage
. Others are injured, killed, or discharged before they can be awarded the role. Most of those fortunate enough to have been given the role have worked tirelessly over the course of years. They improve on speed and efficiency with each mission, learn new skills in their down time, and train relentlessly to become the best of the best.
Many of the Elite Espionage
agents know at least five languages, have single-handedy accomplished at least twenty operations, and are versatile with assignment types; from infiltration and stealth to impersonations and seductions. They are also very tech-savvy, often being able to learn and comprehend the workings of a new piece of equipment within 24 hours.
A Rare Case
At only eighteen years old, Someone Elsewood
was recruited and almost instantly promoted to Elite Espionage
within a year of his employment. This strange occurance was partially due to the fact that he already possessed several of the skills necessary to be a successful W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P.
operative before he was enrolled. Someone knew more languages than most of the agents in the system and had the ability to remember almost everything he read. On top of this, he passed the Raven trainings with flying colors. These three factors, among others, were the reasons he was instantly promoted without enduring many classes. Someone Elsewood was the first, the youngest, and the only yet to do so.
