Baby Tooth was the leader of the Death Lotus assassins until he was assassinated by Ling. He had a son, Wu, who was also killed by her.

History[edit | edit source]

The Death Lotus received a job to kill the powerful seasinger Quin. Baby Tooth chose Ling, then sixteen, to carry out the assassination. Her attempt was thwarted by Quin's occultist and she escaped.[1] When she returned to the Death Lotus, Baby Tooth was furious. He told Ling that she had brought shame on the order. He expelled her and Baby Tooth's son, Wu, cut off one of her hands as punishment. He was about to cut off the other one, but she escaped and threw herself into the sea.[2]

Some time later, when Ling killed Tombi, the khan of Thalassia, one of his bodyguards and Death Lotus assassin, Bak, witnessed the event.[3] He sent a letter to the Death Lotus informing that Ling was alive.[4] Wu was then sent to capture Ling and bring her home. Ling learnt of this and went to The Island that Reflects the Moon, where he was located, and she decapitated him.[5][6]

Kirau, Ling's informer, reported that Baby Tooth was staying at the training camps in Tokoko.[7] Ling headed there to kill him and stop the Death Lotus from chasing after her. She entered Baby Tooth's room and triggered a trap which caused an explosion that threw her clear of the building, leaving her unconscious. The portmaster's crew held off the assassins and carried her to the ship.[8] Later, she visited Kirau, whom she suspected of having betrayed her. He confessed: Quin had threatened Kirau with killing his family and friends if he did not set up a trap for Ling.[9] Ling killed Kirau and headed to The Pearl Fortress to attack the Death Lotus' headquarters.[10][11]

Ling assaulted the headquarters and killed Baby Tooth. After this, the Death Lotus left her alone.[12]

  1. ^ The Assassin, "The Death Lotus", RuneScape. "After the war, so many wanted Quin dead. [...] One khan offered the Death Lotus more wealth than the other khans combined. The order of assassins could not turn it down. I was the best assassin; at sixteen I was peerless. Baby Tooth, my leader and mentor, chose me from the ranks available to him. [...] I positioned myself in the rafters of the palace, and waited for Quin to enter her chambers. [...] I was surprised to see her with only one bodyguard: an occultist. My dart flew through the air, but the occultist must have known I was there. Her staff knocked the dart from its flight. [...] The occultist called for guards. I escaped and hid in the jungle for three weeks."
  2. ^ The Assassin, "Woe for Wu", RuneScape. "After I failed to kill Quin, the Khan of the Sea, I barely returned to the Death Lotus with my life. I did not know what to expect. I knew Baby Tooth, our leader, would be furious. He told me that I had brought shame on the Death Lotus, that the order of assassins would be lucky to survive Quin's wrath. I was to leave the order. I accepted this with reluctance. Then, Baby Tooth asked me to bare my wrists. Wu, Baby Tooth's fat son, grabbed me by the forearm and raised a blade... [...] Before my hand had even hit the floor, Wu had raised his knife again. He grabbed at my other forearm, but his hands were slippery with blood. I wrested myself from his grasp, ran to the window and threw myself into the sea."

    • Player: Did he explain why he betrayed you?
    • The Assassin: He had to. Quin threatened to level Kirau's village, if he did not set a trap for me. She threatened to kill his family, friends and crewmen.
