My name...my given name is Freya. I'm an assassin. No one knows what I look like. Sound like. Or know who I am. And I like it like that. I don't enjoy what I do. I just do it because well...I'm good at it. But I have a code. A code that I follow. Never, under any circumstances, am I allowed to reveal my identity or harm someone who has done no wrong. This is my code. The code that has kept me alive for years. I have sworn to live by it. It was a simple job. Then it wasn't. I ran. I ran for years in hiding. They were trying to find me. I wouldn't let them. I needed a safe place to hide. Then I heard about Fairy Tail. The strongest Guild in Magnolia. I would hide there. Earn some money then get the hell out. That is...Until I met HIM. I am Magnolia's number one assassin. Until one boy changed all that.
