Rebb was an ancient and dangerous Blackblood born over three-hundred years ago. She aimed to free her people and the Lu-Qiri from the plane of ashes through any means necessary. Her desire to possess the Asterkinj placed her in a difficult and deadly position with Talon. She was later killed by Talon and Zed with the help of Vikka.
Three-hundred years ago, Rebb knew the Dragman of that era, Iothina. At an unknown point after this, Rebb and her fellow purebloods were at war with the humans. They formed a plan that their entire war party, Blackbloods, and Lu-Qiri, would go through the portal and wait in the Plane of Ashes. A member of Talon’s ancestorial tribe was supposed to sneak behind enemy lines and reopen the portal. The awaiting members would then make a mass surprise behind their walls. Talon’s ancestral tribe made a pact with the humans to leave the Blackbloods in the plane of ashes and keep them there as a prison. This left Rebb imprisoned in the Plane of Ashes for three-hundred-years and separated from her family, but also, unable to carry out her mission of eliminating humans.
In "We Only Kill to Survive", Talon has been given a Lu-Qiri name by Ilyin. Talon then uses the Asterkinj and opens the portal to the Plane of Ashes. She then calls out Ekkundi to come forth. The Lu-Qiri does, followed by his master Rebb. Talon is surprise to see another member of her species alive. Her shock is short lived however when Talon realized that Rebb is a member of the same group as Varlek. When Rebb ask Talon about Varlek, who is her brother, Talon reveals that he is dead. Upon hearing that her brother is dead, Rebb then has Ekkundi attack Talon, who knocks her out in one hit. Rebb tried to cut the Asterkinj out of Talon's head, but found out that the creature moves away from the wound. Rebb then discovers that Talon is actually a Blackblood from the wound (with her her points cut off Rebb assumed that Talon was human).
Later on outside the Outpost, Talon meet with Rebb and the latter tries to explain some things, only for Talon to not be satisfied with her answers and chargers towards her. Ekkundi then protects his master from Talon. When Talon realizes that Ekkudi won't kill her, Rebb gives her two days to think about transferring the Asterkinj to it's "rightful owner". The next day Rebb is talking with the Dragman about her history with Ilyin's family, before telling the little girl that Talon will give her the Asterkinj one way or another.
In "This Is One Strange Town", Rebb has entered the Outpost for an update on Talon's stance of her offer. Rebb then offers more information regarding their people's status and history about their banishment to the Plane of Ashes. Talon then attacks Rebb only for Rebb to overpower Talon after a short while. The two then acknowledge that they need the other alive for now, before Rebb leaves.
In "Not In My Kingdom", Talon meets with Rebb to give her the Asterkinj. Rebb brought Ekkundi while Talon brought Janzo. Talon places her hand on Rebb's forehead and the Asterkinj travels from Talon's forehead to her fingertips. Just as the Asterkinj is about to transfer, Ilyin signals to Talon that she shouldn't give the Asterkinj to Rebb. Talon takes Rebb's brief moment of vulnerability to grab her blade and trap her. Talon holds the blade to Rebb’s throat and demands that Rebb call off her Lu-Qiri. Rebb does as Talon asks to spare her life. Ilyin escapes with Janzo. Webb asks why Talon betrayed her, and Talon tells her that it's because Rebb lied. Talon then knocks her out and flees.
In the days that followed, Rebb pays a visit to Gwynn. She introduces herself as Rebb from a Blackblood village that no longer exists. She wants to make a deal with Gwynn to lead the army of Lu-Qiri and Blackbloods herself. She doesn't need the Dragman, for she already knows the name of every creature on the other side. The creatures will also follow her willingly, and that Talon can't control the Lu-Qiri because of her history. In exchange, Rebb wants Gwynn to command Talon to give the Asterkinj to its rightful owner - her.
After visiting Gwynn, Rebb sneaks into Janzo's lab the moment Ilyin is left alone. Ilyin tries to escape but Rebb is faster than the child. Rebb wants Ilyin to say loyal to her, but Ilyin tells her that she can't. Rebb is not the One the prophecy foretells. Rebb doesn't believe her and coldly tells the child that if she can't summon her people, then no one can. Rebb then stabs Ilyin and leaves her to die in the lab.
Talon finds Ilyin in the lab and holds the child's body. When Janzo arrives he is saddened by the child's death. Talon tells Janzo that she didn't know that a Blackblood could be so cruel. Rebb also took all the names Ilyin had given Talon and burned them. Janzo finds a piece of paper in Ilyin's sleeve. Janzo thinks this could be the last name she wrote and hide it for Talon as she was dying. However, Talon counters that it could also have been planted by Rebb and is the name of one of her Evil friends.
In "Regarding the Matter of Garret Spears" she goes to Queen Rosmund hoping to make Talon be able to summon the rest of her people or force Talon to transfer the Asterkinj to her. The Queen then counters saying that if she were to write down names she can't force anything on her friend, but she can TRY and ask Talon to summon her people. Rebb refuses to do this, so she summons Ekkundi and hold her hostage. Ekkundi then kills most of the guards outside the throne room. Tobin Aegisford drunkenly tries to come to her rescue, but Ekkundi easily overpowers him in the throne room, before tossing him out a window. Amused over the easy victory, Rebb claps her hand applauding at the Lu-Qiri before knocking out Rosmund as she attempt to escape. At Talon's Place, the newly arrived Zed explains that Rebb doesn’t want to free his clan because he and his clan believe they can live in peace with humans. Janzo deducts that this is why Rebb killed the Dragman. With all the names destroyed she can choose who to bring through the portal leaving her enemies, including Zed and his clan, behind. Zed is surprised when Talon tells him that Rebb killed the Dragman. Talon then appears before Rebb in the throne room to surrender. Not realizing that Talon is stalling, Rebb agrees to release Rosmund only after Talon has properly transfered the Asterkinj to her. As Rebb gloats to Talon, Vikka then crashes the party fighting Ekkundi. Talon then get her sword back thanks to Rosmund, and Talon fights Rebb. After Zed helps kill Ekkundi, Talon then kills Rebb. As she is dying Talon then says to her "I may not be the one, but neither are you!" before removing her sword out of the now dead Rebb's body.
Rebb was a battle-trained warrior prone to violence. She attacked anyone who got in the way of her achieving her goals. She hated all humans, and thought they all deserved to die. Rebb was a sadistic manipulative Blackblood, who was not only cunning, but an excellent liar. She almost convinced Ilyin that she was the one who would free the world of the Prime Order, only for Ilyin to sense her true intentions before it was too late. When things don't go her way, Rebb was not above injuring innocent beings. While she had a lot of hatred inside her, she did show that she was capable of showing empathy. Like when she was sadden about her Lu-Qiri Ekkundi being killed.
Rebb had the typical appearance of the average Blackblood. Rebb had long brown hair was braided to match her brown eyes. She had tan skin and she wore battle armor from her time in the Plane of Ashes. She had the mark of a Blackfist on her temple. While she could be described as beautiful, her hatred easily destroys that thought. She also had a cunning look in her eyes that makes one always be on alert.
Powers and Abilities
Rebb possessed all the standard powers and abilities of a Blackblood. She was skilled with hand to hand combat and an expert in many weapons, but her personal weapon of choice was a double end spear that she usually carried around with her.
