Knives of Artemis specialized training


Lysistrate is a Mercenary, member of the Knives of Artemis. Her specialties include infiltration, demolitions and assassination. She has a reputation for being elusive, able to escape even the most dire situations. Her petite size allows her to easily use ventilation ducts, and make her enemies underestimate the real threat she presents.


Lysistrate is a relatively small woman, caucasian with long black hair, and cold brown eyes.Her duties as a Knives of Artemis require her to stay in top physical shape. She maintains a lean but strong build.


There are different layers to Lysistrate's character. When Lysistrate is working, she seems detached, calm and often silent. She keeps her emotions in check and doesn't let her job affect her personal life: "It's nothing personal. Just business"

Lysistrate usually presents herself in a cordial manner, sometimes even being charming.

Lysistrate can be a trustworthy and caring friend, if someone manages to move past her cold exterior, but if this trust is ever violated, then she can be really vindictive.

Lysistrate loves a challenge, and that is one of the main reasons why she enjoys her career as much, since it lets her test her abilities against the best the world can offer, forcing her to improve and improvise to keep the upper hand.

Despite her ruthless efficiency, there are some things that Lysistrate would never do, which has led her to reject some very profitable contracts.

A curious trait of her personality, Lysistrate thinks very little of men in general.


Early life

There are no records of who she was before joining the Knives of Artemis.

At least for now.

Knives of Artemis

After surviving the rigorous training to join the group, she took the name "Lysistrate" and began her participation on several operations including: infiltration, assassination, kidnapping, sabotage and occasional encounters with heroes.

After the split with the Knives of Vengeance, Lysistrate has been operating solo. Occasionally she looks for other sisters that escaped the warping powers of the Talons of Vengeance in hopes that they can rebuild the group, free from the Talons and Malta's influence.

One thing that should be noted, Lysistrate has no criminal record and have not been captured so far.

Skills & Equipment

Trained to peak physical condition, she is the quintessential Knives of Artemis. Lysistrate is specially adept at infiltration and wields the longsword with great mastery.

Lysistrate is also an accomplished Hacker, demolitions expert and fluent on many languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, among others)

She also carries on her belt and harness: caltrops, shurikens, hand grenades, grappling hooks and poisoned darts.

Mental Training: As part of her training as a Knives of Artemis, Lysistrate has become highly resistant to mental domination.

Wrist Comm Unit: It is in essence a highly advanced computer capable of tracking mission data, interfacing with satellite scans and collected intelligence, providing a communications interface.

Unit acts as a basic data-pad, able to store and retrieve data from robotic systems/androids/etc., other computers (via a direct link or wireless transceiver), comm signals, and standard data-cards.

Cloaking Device: The standard Cloaking Device of the Knives of Artemis that use an LCD body coating to become partially invisible.

MediPort Beacon: Monitors vital signs in the wearer and prompts a teleport to the nearest hospital in case of an emergency. Can also be activated manually.

Customized Knives of Artemis uniform: 8-ply Kevlar panels (able to withstand ballistic impact up to .45 caliber bullets) and "Atlex 5" (a fire-resistant material that withstand temperatures of up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit).


Lysistrate has many fake identities that she can use to accomplish her objectives. The most notable of those is Susan Davenport, owner of Davenport Investments. Lysistrate uses this identity to clean and legally invest the money she gets. All her activities as Susan are strictly legal.

Allies and Enemies


These are people and organizations that have helped her or that she cares about.

Knives of Artemis: She respects and values the sisterhood and will go out of her way to help them. They are her family.

Vanguard: She respects the organization and looks forward to working with them and having access to their resources.


Lysistrate tries very hard to keep her actions as just business, but there are some special individuals and organizations that have managed to earn her hatred.

Talons of Vengeance: They corrupted a great portion of the Knives of Artemis, turning them into the Knives of Vengeance. Lysistrate won't rest until all of them are exterminated.

Malta: Lysistrate can't stand the Malta Group, specially how they sometimes have claimed ownership of the Knives.
