tear me down tell me I don't need to fear tell me now, tell me somebody's near 'cause sirens, sirens are all i hear[/center]
If I'm looking like myself then I'm probably doing something wrong. My living relies on being someone else, and so an array of alternate personalities are crucial to my success. Anything I can get my hands on to make me look different is much appreciated. Wigs, work clothes, stuff like that. If I can look like someone of a certain profession, I'll take it. Under all that I'm pretty average looking. I can doll myself up if I'm trying to attract a guy or lure them in as part of an act, but to be honest that's such a rare occurrence that I don't often bother with make-up or any of that crap, even with it being as common as it is in Five.
Even without costume I am a master of disguise. My face is a mask in itself, simply because I'm so good at changing expression to suit different characters. My mother called it acting talent, but I think there's more to it than that. I'm not a great talker, so I wouldn't make a great actor anyway. I leave the talking to Ruze, mostly. She's so good at that.
We're a double act, and I don't mean like a circus pair or anything like that. She's the ruse and I'm the tricks, hence why we're called Ruze and Trix. Those aren't our real names, well they are because we had them changed, but we had proper names before - Rose and Tricia. That life is gone now, with our parents, and we live the life off Con-artists. Ruze usually distracts our target or lures them in with some kind of appeal, whilst I plan the actual scam and pull of the tricky stuff behind their backs. It's a great combination and we're pretty affluent because of it, too.
Ruze is my best friend in the whole world. She's my little sister, so I've always been protective over her to some extent, but in recent years she's become so independent that it fills me with pride. I raised her mostly on my own. Our parents neglected us and eventually pissed off, so I was a mother and a sister to her. We get by fine on our own, and we eat very well for people in Five.
I'd describe myself as tenacious and vicious, with a little bit of heart in there too. I like what we do - It's thrilling and rewarding, and I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime. I live for a kick, and when my heart is racing I feel so alive. The fact that we've taken our parentless, poverty-filled lives and turned it into something we both enjoy and benefit from is incredible. We're so lucky to be so good at what we do.
Am I arrogant? Of course I am. I am damn good at messing with technology and planning ahead. I'm so tactical that I have a solution for every single thing that could go wrong. It's just what I do - It's in my nature. If I want to brag to people that I can dismantle and rewire a jukebox into a communications jammer, I will. If I want to show someone how to redirect credit flow to an alternate account, I'll do that. No one tells me what I can and can't brag about, because I ain't got no one to tell me otherwise. I'm the head of the Valfierno family, and I'll do what I want.
Parents left us when we were relatively young. I don't know what it was, but they stopped caring all of a sudden. I became a mother to Rose- Ruze, as well as a big sister. I had to try and provide for her. Do you know how tough that was? I was pickpocketing and stealing so we could eat a decent meal. I suppose it started with petty crime, and grew into what it is today. Of course, the playground hi-jinxes were a contributory factor as well, but I think it had to start somewhere.
I've always been good with technology, Ruze has always been silver-tongued. It was only natural that we became this double-act. Ruze distracts, or persuades. I set up the general plan and make technological preparations. That's who we are, it's who we'll always be. Trix and Ruze.
they keep calling out calling out someone's name keep calling out, and all you can do is pray that these sirens, sirens don't come our way
