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

Background

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.

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).[1]

Trivia

  • 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.).[2]
