About Javi the Wasp
Javi was born just another slum rat in an already-infested city. And while his size often made him the target for bullies or worse, his quick thinking, eyes, fingers, and feet kept him alive… plus some. It didn't hurt that he had enough guts to drown a camel. He picked up the moniker "the wasp" while growing up among the teams of cutpurses. He was good. Maybe not the best, but he could hold his own. And unfortunately, that was just the beginning. Like a future pesh addict getting his first taste, Javi just couldn't get enough of the adrenaline and the fun. He was quickly into heists, con jobs, roof-running, rumor-mongering… anything that promised a little fun or something new. When you've cut enough purses and lifted enough window-locks, though, you quickly realize the emptiness of seeking wealth. It can always be taken. So Javi lives for the thrill, and he lives for the moment. And when he gets in over his head, Javi just hitches a ride on an unsuspecting caravan. There are other town and other sites. He does always seem to find his way back to his first love, though.. Katapesh.
Yin Hu, though. Now there's a woman Javi's never crossed. Something about the little merchant (well, little to everyone else) just seemed to get his nerves a-twitchin. He'd never really dealt with her, really. Maybe he never thought it would be fun enough. Maybe he never had a reason.
But lately… Javi sits and considers as he watches the strange little woman from across the bazaar. Lately it was like the strange old woman was a magnet to his metal. And damn if Javi ever got an itch he didn't at least try to scratch…
