Tut. Why does everyone assume that the most feared, shadowy and deadly Assassin operating in 19th century Europe has to be a man? This is often the very last assumption her clients make as she delivers a completely bespoke and personalised service to them, with a great deal of charm and style. She is careful to ensure the right sort of rumours spread about her, such as the one that says the Outsider is never to be seen in public without a very striking and beautiful woman on his arm. This usefully diverts attention away from the truth, as the Dodger finds out, almost to his cost.

This lady, it is clear, would not be out of place in a different world on Filigree Street. The Assassins' Guild would snap her up like a shot.
