In the 42nd Century a secret agency is formed and tasked with sending highly trained assassins through time. Their targets are chosen so that their deaths alter aspects of the timeline in an attempt to avoid major catastrophes.

These Time Assassins work alone, slipping from one destination to another, rarely ever returning to their period of origin. Without backup or support from the Agency, Assassins must survive however they can, often having to repair gear or replace clothes with whatever they can find in the era they are in. As a result, they often look completely mismatched, with styles and technology from both past and future civilisations.

Your task is to design one of these assassins. Think carefully about their life; how they kill their targets; what eras they may have already been to; do they keep any trophies from each kill? Also think about their technology; how do they receive new orders?; or travel from one time to another?

Remember that these characters are assassins; they operate on secrecy and discretion. They are smart and calculating and can make use of anything they find.


The Guidelines:
  • Can be Male OR Female
  • Can be any style or genre
  • Consider multiple eras when designing tech and attire
  • It must be clear that they travel through TIME!
  • Consider how long they have been doing this job.
  • Think carefully about the weapons an assassin might use
