Max Meltzer, better known by his assassin name, Lullaby is a main character, and a secretive assassin previously operating for Cicada, being widely considered as their best and most reliable hitman for hire. He is often sent in to eliminate dangerous or powerful targets such as drug lords and politicians.


Max Meltzer was born in New South Wales, Australia to a stay-at-home mom and a police officer father. Growing up, Meltzer dreamed of becoming a musician, however, when his father was killed in a violent crossfire between officers and bank robbers, these dreams were crushed. After the incident, his mother committed suicide, and Max was sent to live in foster care.

After years in the foster cafe system, and failing to become a musician, Max Meltzer join the Australian Defense Force for it's benefits, serving for six terms before returning home to Australia and joining a motorcycle club to ease his pressures.

Still desperate for money, Meltzer used newly gained talents to commit and get away with petty crimes such as robbery, even going as far to be contracted to participate in a bank robbery. The contractors were none other than Cicada, and, impressed by his skills, contacted him for several more robberies.

His skills were truly put to the test when he was contracted to assassinate the leader of the motorcycle club he was in. Reluctantly doing so for the reward money on the hit.

Meltzer was soon repeatedly contacted by Cicada for jobs, and became a regular hitman for them. He was given the name "Lullaby" by the organization, for his efficiency in "putting targets to sleep".

Lullaby has been a regular reliable Cicada cleaner and assassin for years now, considering it his "calling" and "profession".

Personality and TraitsEdit

Some people call me bipolar, sadistic, insane. Some people are also dead.
— Lullaby

Meltzer stands out for his loud and aggressive, yet sarcastic and sometimes calm attitude. Often flipping between angry and calm depending on a given situation. On the job, Lullaby does what it takes to complete the mission, always hating to disappoint his employers.

On the job, Lullaby leaves no man alive, and takes pleasure in killing, preferably using his fists or knives to do the deed.
