- "I am no traitor... for I cannot betray those I never truly loved."
- ―Haras to Altaïr regarding his betrayal of the Assassins, 1189.[src]
In 1189, Haras betrayed the Assassin Order, and led an army of Templars to attack the Assassins' fortress of Masyaf. During the assault many Assassins were killed, and their Mentor, Al Mualim, was captured. Arriving back at Masyaf, the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad fought his way through the village and confronted Haras, who then threatened Altaïr with the death of Al Mualim.
Promptly retreating to the now Templar-occupied fortress, Haras proceeded to execute a number of 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 Assassin's Creed was wrong. Soon after, Haras passed away, his beliefs unchanged despite Altaïr's words.
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.
