Background[edit | edit source]
The CorSec criminal report for Kaliyo Djannis contains a pixelated holoimage showing a top Exchange gangster with his arm draped affectionately around a tiny Rattataki woman. In one hand, the woman is triumphantly hoisting an assault rifle; with the other, she's lifting a wine bottle to her associate's lips.
The image is labeled "Kaliyo Djannis and Vanus Cruor--First Meeting."
Thanks to contradictory accounts, Kaliyo's personal history is murky at best. For at least a decade, she's worked as a freelance enforcer and assassin for a half-dozen criminal syndicates, served time in prison, and kept close ties to a violent anarchist cell. Whether she's genuinely political or just in it for the thrills, nobody seems to know. Only when firepower fails Kaliyo does she fall back on her charm—and the underworld does seem to find her dangerously charming. Jilted associates describe her as manipulative, while other colleagues remain infatuated long after her departure. Regardless, anyone working with or against Kaliyo should be extremely cautious—no one walks away from the Rattataki unscathed.
