- "I am no traitor. For I cannot betray those I never truly loved."
- ―Haras to Altaïr regarding his betrayal of the Assassins.[src]
During 1189, Haras betrayed the Assassin Order, and led an army of Templars to attack the Assassins' fortress of Masyaf, of which many Assassins were killed in the defense and Al Mualim was captured. Arriving back at Masyaf on a horse, the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad fought his way to the Assassin fortress and confronted Haras, who then threatened Altaïr with the death of Al Mualim.
Promptly retreating to the then Templar-occupied fortress, Haras proceeded to kill off the other Assassin hostages with his crossbow. Altaïr, who was locked outside the fortress by a portcullis gate, promptly scaled its walls and assassinated Haras.
As he died, Haras continued to defy the Assassins, claiming that the Templars knew the truth about humanity and that the Assassins' Creed was wrong. Soon after, he passed away, after continuing to affirm to Altaïr of what he believed.
Personality and characteristicsEdit
According to Altaïr's suspicions, Haras was a man who sought the easy route instead of rightfully earning his place. He also had a reputation for being chameleon-like in combat, and could adapt his personality to suit others in order to find out their secrets.
However, his ambitions could take over him at times, leading to him hastily taking the opportunity to join the forces of the Crusaders, donning their uniform as he betrayed his fellow Assassin brothers.
- Haras: You put too much faith in the hearts of men, Altaïr. The Templars know the truth. Humans are weak, base and petty.
- Altaïr: No, our creed is evidence to the contrary.
- Haras: Perhaps I am not wise enough to understand, but I suspect the opposite; that I am too wise to believe such rubbish.
