To outsiders the Slagte Nisse claim that theirs is the Art of the Hunt. Though technically not a lie, this is a mere cover for their true love: the Art of Assassination. Murder and wanton destruction are ugly and cheap compared to the exquisite thrill of finding a worthy quarry and eliminating them. The Slagte Nisse believe that society must constantly progress and there are always unwanted elements that hold it back. These elements must be removed or repurposed. When they fell that they have found a truly irredeemable individual, they employ stealth, subterfuge, poisons, and guile to eliminate them. The true master of the art can make it seem as if their quarry died when they were meant to. Though sometimes Slagte Nisse can be hired to kill, they never accept a contract without first ensuring the subject is truly worthy of death. The Black Rose, the largest guild of assassins in the known world, is run by the Slagte Nisse. Very few people outside of Slagte Nisse culture know the truth, and those that do never speak of it lest they be seen untrustworthy, or worse, prey. The greatest crime in Slagte Nisse society is the taking of innocent lives. To cut a life short before it has had the chance to prove its potential and worth is something that brands any offender as worthy prey.
