Raven Roost Cutthroat

These elite killers have picked up the nickname= “cutthroat” from those who have seen them in action and survived. They sta=lk isolated sentries and distracted defenders, jumping up from behind to wr=ap garrote wire around their target’s throat and drive daggers into their v=ulnerable spots. Alone in a straight fight, these cutthroats are weak fight=ers and generally seek to flee and set up an ambush later. When fighting wi=th allies or attacking an unaware foe however, they are extremely lethal an=d capable of ending a life in moments.
