Victoria Schmitt is an agent with the CISO.
That acronym stands for Covert Intelligence Security Operatives, an "ultra top secret organization tasked with eliminating high profile targets who interfere with national interests". That statement sends chills down my back because who decides who is interfering with what? Nebulous and almost certainly dangerous.
Add to that worrisome aspect the fact that Schmitt is not a happy member of the team. It is hard to be when you are literally blackmailed into this line of work and not because of anything you have done but because of a close relative. Not a nice work environment. This extortion is an interesting aspect to the life that is Schmitt because though she has many talents that make her a terrific asset for the organization, her primary skill is her shooting ability - more specifically her prowess at killing someone from far away. The logic of threatening someone with that ability is perplexing but someone with apparent suicidal inclinations did just that and Schmitt decided her father's unspecified offense which would destroy his career and reputation was enough to go along with the job 'offer'.
Prior to her becoming a killer, not just from afar with her sniper skills but up close when it becomes necessary, Schmitt's life had been pretty good - up until a very nasty assault. Her mother had been a "well-known French Prima Ballerina". Her father had been in the military stationed in Germany when he was lucky enough to meet that beautiful and talented lady and somehow managed to get her to fall in love and marry him. It was from her mother that she inherited her "looks, dancing ability, and ultra girlish ways". The latter did not come easy, however, as she also got from her father enough to make her have to "nearly starve" herself at time to maintain her figure.
From her mother she gained great skills at dance and she knew she had a very real career potential there. From her father she owned shooting aptitude as well as a genuine love of shooting. As a young teenager one of her most cherished gifts had been her first rifle and with it the training from a military marksman which started her down the path she took with her life.
She decided to join the Air Force and finished the Academy and became an officer. Then a brutal sexual assault by a crime boss's son caused her to get a medical discharge and she picked up the dancing her mother had always wanted. That was when the mysterious man show up, threatened her dad's well-being, and she changed yet again her path.
Now she is a member of a dance troop as a cover and an assassin with an impressive track record as her true line of work.
