Assassin of Paris
The Assassin of Paris was a normal human.
On his first robbery the Assassin killed the victim because she struggled too much to defend herself.
After that, in the following two months he deceived four other women to take their jewels, pearls and money.
One night, however, a woman screamed so swiftly that the gendarmes arrived too early and he had to run away without loot. Then he decided to find the shiest type of woman.
Three nights later he approached an apparently very rich woman. She convinced her to walk through the boulevard, and he even took her to a dark alley, but when he assaulted her he was shot by a gendarme. The lady was the Sensational Mademoiselle and she had read his mind, setting up a trap for him. The Assassin died of the wound.
