Ezio Auditore da Firenze assassinating a target

Assassination targets were individuals that the Assassin Order – and in select instances, the Templar Order – deemed worthy of elimination. Over the centuries, the Assassins killed many individuals they believed to be corrupt and a danger to humanity, particularly Templars and their associates.

Below is a chronological list of notable victims, by faction and assassin responsible.

Elimination by AssassinsEdit

Altaïr Ibn-La'AhadEdit

Around the time of the Third Crusade, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad assassinated various individuals during his quest to find The Chalice in 1190. He later eliminated nine tyrannical public figures in an effort to restore his lost rank and regain honor within the Assassin Order.

Following his ascension to Mentor of the Order, he carried out several assassinations to aid the Cypriot Resistance in 1192, and continued to eliminate notable targets throughout his life.

Ezio Auditore da FirenzeEdit

During the Renaissance, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze assassinated various individuals in order to avenge the deaths of his family members, free the Spanish Assassins, and liberate the Italian cities of Florence, Venice and Rome from corruption.

Hattori HanzōEdit

A ninja of the Sengoku Period, Hattori Hanzō was recruited by the Assassin Order to counter the implantation of the Templars in Japan.

Edward KenwayEdit

Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway and grandfather of Ratonhnhaké:ton, assassinated several individuals during the Golden Age of Piracy in his quest for riches and glory, and later in the service of the Assassin Order.

Aveline de GrandpréEdit

Aveline de Grandpré assassinated various targets between the French and Indian War and American Revolutionary War in an effort to free New Orleans from Templar influence and liberate victims of the slave trade.

Ratonhnhaké:tonEdit

Before, during, and after the events of the American Revolutionary War, the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton eliminated various Templars in order to protect his tribe and further the pursuit of freedom for the citizens of the thirteen colonies of the United States.

Following a meeting with George Washington, Ratonhnhaké:ton found himself in an alternate reality created by an Apple of Eden. He assassinated several individuals while experiencing the alternate timeline.

Desmond MilesEdit

Following his kidnapping by Abstergo Industries and training with the Assassins, Desmond was forced by Juno to assassinate Lucy Stillman in the Colosseum Vault. He later infiltrated the Abstergo Industries headquarters in Rome and assassinated two prominent members of their Order.

Other AssassinsEdit

Below is a chronological list of other notable assassinations, by century and, if known, Assassin responsible:

Elimination by TemplarsEdit

Several assassinations similar to those carried out by Assassins were instigated by Templars at various points in history. The following is a chronological list of Templar assassinations by century and, if known, the Templar responsible.
