The Haitian Assassins were the Brotherhood of Assassins located in the French colony of Saint-Domingue, formed during the mid-18th century.

HistoryEdit

Leadership of MackandalEdit

By 1732, François Mackandal had become the Mentor of the Haitian Brotherhood, made contact with the slaves Agaté, Baptiste and Jeanne, and occupied his time with educating them. Additionally, Mackandal taught both Agaté and Baptiste the art of creating poisons, and trained them in combat, freerunning and the rudimentary principles of the Brotherhood. However, Mackandal adopted a very strict interpretation of the Creed, having his disciples poison white colonists, even if they were innocent. While Agaté felt compassion for Jeanne, Baptiste did not, which caused friction between the two.[1]

Around 1738, Agaté and Baptiste were officially inducted into the Assassin Order. Jeanne, however, having grown fearful of Mackandal's violent methods, refused to ally herself with the Assassins and decided to stay behind at the plantation.[1] At some point, Mackandal became acquainted with Antó, a Caribbean Assassin and the Kingston bureau leader. Antó offered his services to Mackandal, in order to liberate slaves and strengthen the Maroon cause. Mackandal rejected his aid while belittling Antó's Mentor, Ah Tabai, whom he referred to as too soft. He claimed to hold a greater understanding of the Creed, while also professing his intent to make full use of a Piece of Eden should he find one.[2]

1751 earthquakeEdit

By 1751, François Mackandal came into possession of two powerful First Civilization artifacts, the Precursor box and manuscript, which he received from Bastienne Josèphe. With them, the Haitian Brotherhood was able to discover the locations of several Precursor temples, including one located in Port-au-Prince. Mackandal dispatched one of his Assassins, a Maroon named Vendredi, to the temple in search of the Pieces of Eden.[2]

However, Vendredi unknowingly triggered the temple's defenses when he attempted to remove the artifact from its pedestal. This subsequently caused a massive earthquake which leveled the city, and caused Vendredi to be caught under the debris in the collapsing temple. Lawrence Washington, a Templar who followed the Assassin into the temple, offered to help him in exchange for Mackandal's location. Vendredi agreed, but was killed shortly after by Washington. Some time afterward, Washington sneaked into Mackandal's camp and stole the box and manuscript, claiming it for the Templar Order.[2]

After the earthquake, Adéwalé, a Caribbean Assassin, arrived at Port-au-Prince[3] and discovered the Haitian Brotherhood.[2] There, he reunited with Bastienne Josèphe and met his son, Babatunde. Adéwalé inducted Babatunde and trained him as an Assassin of the Haitian Brotherhood.[3] Worried by Mackandal's extreme methods and increasing instability, he also instructed his son to keep an eye on the Mentor. Before leaving, he vowed to reform the Haitian Brotherhood and Saint-Domingue.[2]

Some time after, Adéwalé pursued Washington at sea, in the hope of reclaiming the Precursor artifacts. He ultimately lost the trail upon reaching New York and, upon suggestion of his son, Adéwalé traveled to the Davenport Homestead in 1752, in order to collect supplies for the survivors of the earthquake. Upon reuniting with Achilles Davenport, Mentor of the Colonial Brotherhood. The two discussed Mackandal's progress and the effects of the Precursor site.[2]

CollapseEdit

By 1758, Mackandal's plan to poison several colonists in Saint-Domingue ultimately failed and was he captured by the authorities. The Master Templar Madeleine de L'Isle ensured that he was executed. On 20 January that year, Mackandal being put to death by fire. Agaté attempted to save his Mentor, but his efforts were futile. Agaté retreated to Louisiana and hid around the bayou in his personal hideout. Baptiste, however, felt betrayed by Agaté and began forming his own Brotherhood, keeping true to Mackandal's teachings, which ultimately led him to become an ally of the Templar Order.[2]

In the meantime, Adéwalé was assassinated by the Templar Shay Cormac. With the death of the legendary Assassin and the lack of Mackandal's leadship, the Haitian Brotherhood soon fell apart.[2]

ReformationEdit

Around 1776, Babatunde's son Eseosa began plotting the Haitian Revolution and rebuilding the Brotherhood, sharing his father and grandfather's wish of creating a Saint-Domingue in which black and white citizens lived equally. He considered Mackandal a disgrace to the Brotherhood, and was disgusted by his brutality. Buying Toussaint Bréda out of slavery, he recruited Dutty Boukman, Georges Biassou, Jean-François Papillon and Jeannot Bullet into the Brotherhood. Following a Vodou ceremony by Boukman, the revolution ignited, secretly led by the Assassins.[3]

Modern timesEdit

In 1971, the Assassins eliminated François Duvalier for his tyrannical rule over Haiti.[4]
