Born in Spain, Lucia Marquez never knew her father. (Possibly the explorer Alejandro de Ortega -DM) By the age of twelve she was supporting herself and her sisters on the streets, begging, borrowing, and stealing anything she could, all the while developing the skills of a master thief.
The Templar life gave Marquez the focus she needed and she never found herself at a lack of challenge or adventure.
(Note: You'd think after FAILING to steal a horse, a Master Templar wouldn't be so impressed. -DM)
(Note: Guess he (or she?) saw potential in the grasshopper. -RL)
(Note: Maybe she (or he) just didn't like that horse. -JM)
(Note: Heartwarming origin story. Aren't we all about second chances at Abstergo Entertainment? -ML)
