#1 I'm not as fast as I used to be, assassination is a game for the young
#2 Despite my age, I'm still the best there is at what I do. That's depressing
#3 My life has been meaningless and caused nothing but pain and someday someone I pissed off in the past will come for me
#4 "The difference between me and most assassin's? Hah! They just have training, I have talent"
#5 I only kill people if I'm paid to, unless someone is being persistent about being in the way


#1 Draw knives at first sign of combat
