Character Description: Henrietta

One of the newest child assassins saved by the Social Welfare Agency, Henrietta is struggling to fit in. Her family had been killed in a mob raid, and she had been physically abused during the attack. When she was rescued, she had suggested continually that she would commit suicide. Jose, her future 'fratello' (meaning sibling in Italian, though here it's used to mean "handler") rescued the girl, afterwhich she was cyberneticly healed and conditioned into an assassin for the S.W.A.

However, the conditioning may have been done too well for Henrietta. She has a habit to fight whenever she perceives danger to Jose. And Jose still has reservations to the S.W.A.'s insistence to having young children to become assassins. He has been warned that she may need more conditioning... but he's wary, wanting to retain some spark of the girl's humanity.

When Henrietta family was murdered, she was 'assaulted' along side of them all night until her rescue the next day. In the anime they just say she was assaulted and they show her in a wheelchair with her long hair. In the manga there's a picture of her with no left leg past the knee, no right arm past the elbow, her left wrist was bandaged but bent in a strange, almost deformed way. And it looked like she lost her left eye as well. In episode 4, when Triela was talking about having menstrual pains Henrietta said she was envious of her because she (Henrietta) didn't have a uterus anymore, which hints that the assault probably included rape.
