BloodRayne: Prime Cuts
Kestrel are a group of Asian dhampir assassins which "birds figure heavily in their ancestral bloodline".
The Kestrel are in charge of bringing humans to the Shroud tower, where their blood will be used to create "The Shroud". One of them, after seeing Rayne's abilities, asks Rayne to join them ("Wanna play on our side, maybe?"), but her offer is turned down. They have a strange way of speaking and they barely make logical statements. ("Yes! Good, you come get me.", and "You still beating on my boys?") While Rayne thwarted their mission by killing all of them, Ferril and her henchmen finished the task of using human blood to create "The Shroud".
Kestrel are armed for full-scale combat; spikes on the back of their boots, shuriken and bird-wing shaped blades on each arm, and they also wear ninja-like body armor.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
- Severin's quote about "birds" in the Kestrels' bloodline led to the speculation that the Kestrel are either entirely female ("bird" is British slang for "girl", and Rayne only encountered female Kestrel) or they had some spiritual connection to actual birds, possibly the kestrel.
- The Kestrel appear to be under Ephemera's employ, as they both make their first appearances in the same levels together, and they fit with Ephemera's supposed Asian theme.
- The Kestrel are hinted by Rayne and Severin to also be Kagan's daughters, such as when Rayne says that if the Brimstone Society hadn't got to her before Kagan did, then she would have turned out like the rest of Kagan's children, to which Severin responded "You think you would have turned out, as one of those Kestrels?"
