Appearance: Wears cracked black leather trousers and chest piece and a brown belt with small pouches all around it. On his head he wears a battered top hat. He has brown short hair and a short goatee. Has a cockney accent.
Personality: When at work a cold hard killer. Plans out his assassinations for hours and hours making sure every little detail is perfect. A perfectionist with OCD tendencies. When away from his work at SI:7 he tries to act like a regular person but he still carries an air of melancholy around him as he still struggles to deal with his homeland of Gilneas' fall and the atrocities that have occurred there.
Strengths: A master alchemist which allows him to create powerful poisons to assist in his works as well as potions to increase his abilities.
Weaknesses: Physically weak which means that in fair open combat he will usually lose against opponents but if he is able to outmanoeuvre or
use one of his tricks he can still gain the upper hand.
History: Bodde was born and raised within the Greymane city in the kingdom of Gilneas. At a young age he became fascinated by shadows and began to suffer from an unhealthy obsession with shadows. He spent the majority of his childhood locked up in his room at home away from the outside with his curtains drawn, just sitting in the darkness. His parents, worried by his reclusive nature, visited a priest to ask for the light's help with their troubles. The priest ordered them to send their only son away to become an apprentice of a trade-skill. Upon hearing this news his parents became distraught for Bodde was their only child and his mother was past childbearing age. In the end however they knew that their son would not have a successful life if he was left to stay in the shadows all the time and so, they found him an apprenticeship offer. Working as the personal aide of Krennan Aranas, the Royal Alchemist for all of Gilneas.
During his time as an apprentice to the Royal Alchemist he became very familiar with all sorts of potions and herbs but his interest always laid with the more shady sides of alchemy. Whatever herbs he could scrounge together he would use to create increasingly dangerous poisons and toxins which he would distribute about the local black market earning himself a small fortune. As he did this crime became a major problem on the streets of Gilneas and cases of poisoning in the royal court became more frequent until Krennan discovered what his young apprentice was doing and expelled him from service.
He spent several years on the streets of Gilneas performing special jobs for people such as assassination and specialised burglary but it was not until sometime after the construction of the Greymane Wall that Bodde's abilities were truly put to the test. Bodde never agreed with the isolation of Gilneas from the rest of the world, without foreign trade he was often without some ofthe less common ingredients in his poisons, and when a member of the revolution approached him to remove Genn from the equation Bodde was all for it. He spent weeks planning the attack and developed a poison that would bring its victim to the brink of death and leave them in a coma for several weeks. Once Genn was infected by this the revolution would be over. But disaster struck the night before the attack and Lord Crowley was captured by Royalists and imprisoned for treason. Bodde attempted to lay low for a few weeks but one of Crowley's men gave him up in exchange for a more lenient sentence.
Bodde spent the next four years of his life in prison awaiting trial for high treason. But that was not necessarily a bad thing. During his time behind bars he continued to practice his dark arts of poison crafting with whatever smuggled materials he could lay his hands on. The other prisoners knew about his poisons and night time abilities and so when a particularly unpopular prisoner guard appeared Bodde would simply remove him. In reality it would have been quite simple for Bodde to have just walked out of the prison but he found he enjoyed his time there, and with no judge willing to stand up and perform the trial as any that agreed to went missing a few days later, there was really no need to go anywhere else.
After the outbreak of the Worgen curse among the people of Gilneas, Genn ordered that all that were imprisoned during the civil war were to be released to assist in the defence of the province from this terrible curse. Bodde spent much time fighting from the shadows attempting to be as much of a nuisance as possible to the Worgen as other, better, fighters dispatched them in open combat but found to his dismay that the Worgen were naturally resistant to many of his poisons rendering them useless against them but nonetheless he continued to fight as he could. Eventually the fight reached a point where Genn had ordered a retreat away from the city but Bodde stayed behind, determined to find some poison that was capable of bringing down a Worgen. He fought from the entrance of the cathedral slashing any worgen that passed through the doors, his daggers covered in a cocktail of different poisons as he desperately tried to assist the others in whatever way he could. After several minutes of wild flailing from the shadows it came to the point where he had to reapply the poisons to his daggers but while he was distracted something bashed him over the back of his head and his world went dark.
It was not until several months later that Bodde re-awoke. He was on a boat of a design he did not recognise. Around him strange purple people were administering herbs and salves to humans. He instinctively went to back away from them but found he was trapped in a cage. The purple people were speaking to him in a language he didn't understand. They began to frustrate him more and more as he grabbed the cage and roared for release from it but still they would not listen and continued to speak slowly in a language that he could not understand. Eventually they grew weary of this and one of them placed their hand through the cage and placed it upon Bodde's head putting him back into a deep sleep.
He awoke once again, this time he was in a room with humans, but yet again he could not understand a word of what they were saying. He snarled with displeasure which caused one of the humans to look up and walk over to him. He was are that this time he was no longer in a cage but in some sort of underground room with his right leg chained to the wall. The man walked over to him and tried to speak with him but Bodde roared at him and tried to bite the man. Guards from around the room ran straight at him and held him to the ground while the man who had first walked over to him forced a vial into his mouth and poured some liquid down his throat. The guards loosened their grip on him and he clawed at his throat as the liquid scorched down it into the pits of his stomach. Slowly the chatter of the guards made more and more sense and eventually he began to understand what they were saying. His foot slipped through the chain around it and the guards lifted him back up from the ground and handed him some clothes. He changed into the clothes and was told to wait until Mathias Shaw arrived.
After several minutes Shaw descended down the spiral staircase into the room and it was at this point that Bodde realised he was being held in the dungeon beneath SI:7. Shaw casually strolled up to him and looked him up and down before walking slowly around him and sizing him up. He began to speak to him, about his skills with the dagger and poisons. He also spoke of the burglaries and assassinations that SI:7 knew he had worked on and was given an ultimatum. If he agreed to work as an SI:7 agent and to do whatever was commanded of him by anyone above him in the chain of command he would be offered a royal pardon by King Wrynn. However, Shaw made sure to make a point to Bodde that no one knew he was here and that his family were probably long dead. If he was to refuse the offer then he would disappear. Seeing no other way out Bodde agreed to Shaw's terms.
Since then he has worked his way through SI:7's commands, assassinating important targets and obtaining sensitive documents but Bodde is still not sure of who he really is, and of what really happened to him in those months in Gilneas that have disappeared from his memory...
