Altaïr approached the informant.
- Informant: Altaïr, my friend, you must help me. Malik has tasked me with killing several archers posted in the region, so that our Brothers might move around more easily. Normally, it wouldn't be a problem, but this funeral has everyone on edge. The city guard has dispatched its best men to keep the peace, and I simply don't have the skill to remove them. I'd ask two favors of you then - first, to kill the bowmen, and second, to not tell Malik of my failure. In exchange, I'll see what I can learn of Robert's plans.
Altaïr assassinated all the targets and returned to the informant.
- Informant: I'm forever grateful for your aid. Malik would never have forgiven me. Here's what I've learned - for a man such as myself, a direct assault on the cemetery would be impossible. There's simply too many guards. Instead, I'd look to blend in with the scholars, who are sure to be in attendance. It may not be the most direct approach, but it's certainly safer.
Altaïr learned that some scholars would be attending the funeral.
