- "Little, little pretty toys... Are you frightened? Do I scare you? YOU SHOULD BE SCARED! You are going to remember the name Deathstryke for the rest of your lives! That is if you're still alive after we play."
- -Lady Deathstryke
The being known as Lady Deathstryke was born Illyria Baratheon on the planet Knydia in the Relkan Sector. She was captured by High Inquisitor Syanne Harkness during the start of the Imperial Occupation of the Antrixian Commonwealth. Due to her aiding a Jinsai group on Knydia, Illyria was repeatedly tortured by Harkness, causing her mind to shatter. Harkness saw an opportuninty in this shattered being, turning her over, into the hands of an Imperial Intelligence Operative, Maxus Weyre.
At the suggestion of Harkness, Weyre had an eccentric cybernetic surgeon named Pavel Horsk begin experimenting on Illyria. When Horsk was finished with his experiments, very little of the being known as Illyria Baratheon was left. In it’s place was the derranged cyborg that became known as Lady Deathstryke.
Illyria Baratheon grew up on Knydia in the Minor House Baratheon, in service to House Ossian of the Antrixian Landsting. She had a very normal, non-eventful life until the Imperial Occupation of the Antrixian Commonwealth occurred.
Illyria started out taking a passive role in the Antrixian Resistance during the start of the Imperial Occupation of her world. As time passed, she began to be more active, participating in night raids against Imperial targets and hiding Commonwealth fugitives from the Imperials.
An Imperial raid by the Blood Hunters occurred one day on Knydia, in which Illyria was discovered to be hiding a Jinsai Fugitive. Illyria was taken into custody and brought to High Inquisitor Syanne Harkness. Harkness tried an assortment of interrogation and torture techniques on Illyria, attempting to gain any and all information the young woman may possess on the resistance in the sector. This went on for a period of six months before Harkness was satisfied with her results. Unfortunately for Illyria, she was left with a shattered mind and a broken and bruised body.
Harkness turned Illyria over to the up-and-coming Leiutenant Maxus Weyre of Imperial Intelligence, suggesting that Weyre attempt to use her for some of the Empire’s SpecOps experiments. Weyre then, in turn, turned Illyria over to Dr. Pavel Horsk, a eccentric cybernetic surgeon, working with Imperial Intelligence. For 2 years, Illyria was kept on life support, in a comatose state, as Dr. Horsk experimented with grafts and implants on Illyria’s body. Eventually, Horsk was satisfied with his work and woke Illyria.
Illyria had lost all sense of her identity while being comatosed for two years. Weyre then had Illyria, now known as Unit 8212, sent to Prakith where she underwent an additional year of training and flash programming before Weyre determined she was ready for service.
Unit 8212 was returned to the Maridis Sector, where she was placed with High Inquisitor Harkness, not as a prisoner, but as a bodyguard this time. Harkness immediately took a liking to Unit 8212 when her abilities were demostrated on live captives. Harkness immediately renamed her “Lady Deathstryke”.
Service to the Empire
Harkness kept her new "pet" on a short leash initially, literally attaching a slave collar to Illyria, having her follow Syanne around. Harkness' overall treatment was far better than the tests, beatings and torture she had had to suffer previously. Illyria's shattered psyche began to form an unusual mother/daughter bond with Syanne, where Illyria started to veiw Harkness as her mother. Harkness used this to her advantage and fueled Illyria's perceptions. The twisted devotion Illyria formed cemeted her loyalty to Syanne.
In the coming years, Illyria proved her loyalty by acting as guard and personal hunter for Harkness. By 3 BBY, Illyria/Deathstryke was commanding the The Blood Hunters for Syanne, helping to hunt renegade resistance members and checking rumors of any appearances of persons of importance outside the Commonwealth.
Appearance and Personality
Deathstryke appears as a slender female with discolored skin and eerie blue eyes. Due to the various cybernetic implants throughout her body, Deathstryke’s skin has taken on a cyanotic appearance, especially around the implants in her head. The special armor she wears conceals the ports where her wrist blades extend from, but also provides nurishment for her dermal tissue, along with the ability for her to plug into an alcove to maintain her implants power supply.
Deathstryke is cruel. Cold and cunning, she retains a faint memory of great pain inflicted upon her. She chooses to blame the galaxy at large for her pain and is constantly looking to take her pain out on others. Maniacal, Deathstryke love to tease and toy with her targets before engaging in rage-filled attacks. She often reverts into a child-like state that is cruel and terrible, unable to have any empathy for others, especially for her victims.
