Jesus of Nazareth drew the attention of the Templar Order by accumulating many devout followers who were drawn by his miraculous displays. The Templars discovered that the source behind his grand miracles was an ancient and powerful artifact known as the Shroud of Eden, and devised a plan to take it from him.

Betrayed by one of his disciples, he was arrested, tortured, and later crucified at the hands of the Templars, who took the Shroud. Just days after his death, the disciples loyal to Jesus managed to reacquire the Shroud and attempted to harness its powers to resurrect their Messiah.
