For centuries, the order of the Knights Templar

have searched for the mythical Apple of Eden.

They believe it contains not only

the seeds of man's first disobedience,

but the key to the free will itself.

If they find the relic

and decode its secrets,

they will have the power to

control all freedom of thought.

Only the brotherhood called the

Assassins stands in their way...


The Inquisition has finally

delivered Spain to the Templars.

Sultan Muhammad and his people

still hold out in Granada.

But if his son,

the prince, is captured,

he will surrender the

city and the Apple of Eden.

Do you, Aguilar de Nerha,

swear to honor our order

in the fight for freedom?

To defend mankind

against Templars' tyranny,

and preserve free will?

I swear.

If the Apple falls into their hands,

the Templars will destroy

everything that stands in their way.

Protest, dissent, our right

to think for ourselves.

Swear to me that you

will sacrifice your life

and lives of everyone

here to keep it from them.

Yes, Mentor.

Our lives are nothing.

The Apple is everything.

The spirit of the Eagle,

will watch over the future.

Where other men blindly

follow the truth,

remember, nothing is true.

Where other men are

limited by morality or law,


everything is permitted.

We work in the darkness

to serve the light.

We are Assassins.



Subtitle by Bambula

Baja California, Mexico 1986




Your blood is not your own, Cal.

They've found us.

Live in the shadows.

Go! Go now!




You're here to save my soul.

Something like that.


I understand it is your birthday.


The party is just getting started.

Sit down. You're making me nervous.


wash away my sin,

and I'll be clean...

Once again.

You're not much for

the Bible, are you?

Be it known that Callum Lynch

has been found guilty

of capital murder

and sentenced to die

on this day, October 21st 2016.

Does the prisoner wish

to make a final statement?

Tell my father that

I'll see him in hell.

My name is Dr. Sophia Rikkin.

At six pm yesterday evening, you

were executed and pronounced dead.

And so far, as anyone in

the world knows or cares,

you no longer exist.

It's better you to sit.

My eyes... -What are you feeling

right now is normal and uncomfortable.


I'm here to help you.

And you're here to help me.

Let him go.

Don't touch him.

Go ahead. Do it.


You're not a prisoner here, Cal.

I'm here to protect you.

If you listen to me, everything

is going to make sense.

And you need to trust me.

Where am I?

You're in a rehabilitation wing

of Abstergo Foundation in Madrid,

a private organization dedicated

to the perfection of human kind.

With your help, we can pioneer

new ways to eradicate violence.

I had this.

Your father wants him in.

-He's my patient.

This is my program.

Prepare the Animus.

Are the blades prepared?

-Right here.

And we confirmed their provenance?

-They belong to Aguilar.

We recovered them

from his burial site.

What are these?

Assume final preparations.

Our regression, Andaluca, 1492.

Record everything.

Arms ready.

What is this?

I'm sorry, Cal, this is not

the way I like to do things.

Then don't do it.

Insert epidural.

What do you want from me?

-Your past.

Listen to me carefully, Cal.

You're about to enter the Animus.

What you are about

to see, hear and feel,

are the memories of someone

who has been dead for 500 years.

Wait a minute.

You can't change what happens, Cal.

Engage scanner.


Scanning DNA chains.

Searching for time frame.

First memory match locked.

DNA match identified.

Stay with it, Cal.

Attempt synchronization.

We found him.

We found Aguilar.


Commence regression.

Our mission is the boy.

It's the prince.

Which household harbored the boy?

Only me.

Nobody else knew.


Hang his family and make him watch.

Burn the whole village.

With the prince of Granada as captive,

his father, sultan,

will surrender his rebellious city,

the last safe haven for the infidels.

God will punish his people's heresy.

Finally Spain will be

under one Templar rule.

Stay with the memory, Cal.

Aguilar! The boy, Aguilar!

The boy!

Aguilar, the boy!

Pull him!

Commence rehabilitation.

Run a system's check,

and log his condition.

You did well, Cal.

Looking back it's clear that a history

of the world is history a violence.

Last year the economic

impact of antisocial behavior

was 9 trillion dollars.

We believe that man today experiences

a measure of aggression which

he finds no acceptable outlets.

Now imagine if all these costs

could be channeled elsewhere...

So the regression went well?

Lynch is the one.

Direct descendent of Aguilar.

Everything was clear in there,

for the first time.

What do we all dream of?

A more peaceful world.

I see you stole my lines again.

-I only steal from the best.

And the artifact?

The Apple. It's within our grasp.

What happened in there?

Why did you pull him?

I had to.

We have to keep him healthy.

Earn his confidence.

And I know he'll lead us to it.

Push him.

-That's not how the Animus works.

Here you go.

Thank you.

1917 Rutherford splits the atom.

1953 Watson and Crick

find a double helix.

2016 my daughter

finds the cure for violence.

You've always been brighter than me.

I'm late.

I have to report to the Elders.

Francisco Rizi's Grand

Inquisition. 1492.

War, religious prosecution,

and the closest that Father

Torquemada or any of our Order

came to a finding the Apple of Eden.

How are you, my friend?


Your Excellency. -Next

week when the Elders meet,

we shall vote to discontinue

your Abstergo project.

We feel that giving

you 3 billion annually,

could be better spent elsewhere.

Tri billion is nothing compared to...

-We've won.

People are no longer care

about their civil liberties,

they care about their

standard of life.

The modern world has

outgrown notions like freedom.

They are content to follow.

The threat remains

while free will exists.

For centuries we try with religion,

with politics and now consumerism

to eliminate dissent.

Isn't it the time we

gave a science a try?

My daughter is closer

than we've ever been.

How is your beautiful daughter?

She has traced

protectors of the Apple.


Andaluca, 1492.

The descendents?

-All the blood lines have died out.

But one.

We've traced his back 500 years,

to the Assassin's Brotherhood.

Hallucinations are what we

call the "bleeding effect."

Images of your regression,

laying themselves over your

present day field of vision.

If you allow me, I can teach

you how to control them.

Stand down. I have this.

Let it be.

-What is it? The machine?

It's genetic memory.

By using the Animus,

we can relive lives of

those who made us who we are.

What I saw in there,

it felt real.

It was.

In a way.

-Don't mess with me!
