"Crows don't just remember the faces of people who wronged them. They also remember those who were kind. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for."
For the mastermind leaders of The Crows; fit for the quick fingered rogues, the demjin with intricate plans upon plans and schemes upon schemes, all ensuring the complete and inescapable victory against those who've committed the most egregious of wrongs. It is the creaking of black leather gloves that act as harbinger for what is to come, equal parts warning, threat, and promise. The hush of the water laps at the senses next; as any true bastard of the Barrel whose mother is the harbor and father is profit could turn even the most devastating moments into a crucible of strength and purpose that aches in constant reminder with each step. One worthy of taking a surname from after being reborn in salt and sorrow. The nip of black cherry is sharp, an attempt at sweetness but unable to fully put away one's defenses; bright, sudden, passionate and complete. But at its core is wormwood, the delirious deception that in too great an amount be poison but just enough can brew the most intoxicating of absinthes, should he allow himself to be without his armor.
Inspired by the character Kaz Brekker from Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse series. He is played by Freddy Carter in the Netflix series, Shadow & Bone.
