For Mallor, assassination is a way of life. Through death, he survives and he lives for revenge. With a past he can’t forget and a future he has little hope to enjoy, the present is all he has. Using an old identity to hunt old foes, he quickly learns he's not the only hunter in the city but this time, if he fails, he knows death isn't the worst thing he'll face.
