Eavesdropping was a virtual representation of one of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


Altaïr overheard a conversation between two Hospitaliers near the city gate, and decided to listen in for any valuable information.


Altaïr sat on a nearby bench and eavesdropped on a conversation between the two guards.

  • Guard 1: You hear about Alan?
  • Guard 2: The archer who guards the eastern wing?
  • Guard 1: Poor bastard's brother caught an arrow in the throat. Doubt he'll last the night.
  • Guard 2: How can he continue to work, knowing what's to come?
  • Guard 1: He visits his brother often, so I cover for him when I can.
  • Guard 2: You aren't there now.
  • Guard 1: No. I've family business of my own to attend to.
  • Guard 2: Then he'd best hope the doctor doesn't learn of his desertion.
  • Guard 1: He won't, long as you stay silent.
  • Guard 2: Don't worry. Your secret's safe with me.


Altaïr learned that a couple of the fortress' rooftop guards were absent from patrol duty.


  • In Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade, the intelligence Altaïr learns from eavesdropping on two Hospitalier guards is of Garnier's past as a resident of Tyre exiled for his cruel experiments on patients and the likelihood that he is resuming these experiments at the local hospital.
