Assassins seek to kill and kill they do. Preferring to operate in the shadows, Assassins are skilled in blindingly fast combat.

Background[edit | edit source]

For decades, the Assassins Guild have been killing Normans and Muspell demons alike to maintain balance in Midgard and prevent it from becoming a battlefield for the gods.

Those who exist in the darkness and never been exposed to light have always been the object of fear for others. One day, the gods who have seen the adventure recruitment announcement by Lord Tristan III of Rune-Midgarts decided that it would be an opportunity, and in the meantime they drew out a representative to liquidate their history in the dark. Those who used the secret sleep and poison substances needed for assassination and used upon the target without a trace would have been the object of fear. Many of them refuse to open their minds even when their guilds are not well known, and when they see them, they do not want it. But once they are friends, their essence of faith will cause many to not hesitate to befriend a trustworthy assassin.[1]

When the Republic of Guilds shut down the Assassins Guild, Assassins lay hidden away within the Thief Guild. It is tricky to spot them as Thieves and Assassins have an old history together. Slowly and steadily, the rebuilt the Assassins Guild (as the Dark Shadow).[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Assassin or hassassin is a misnomer for the Nizari Ismailis of Islam. The term hashishiyya or hashishi as used by Muslim sources is used metaphorically in its abusive sense (i.e. "irreligious social outcasts", "low-class rabble", etc.).[3]
