Iltani was a member of the Babylonian Brotherhood of Assassins during the Argead Dynasty.
During her lifetime, the Templar ally Alexander the Great conquered most of South-West Asia by using a Staff, one of the Pieces of Eden.
On 13 June 323 BCE, Iltani infiltrated the palace of Nebuchadnezzar II, poisoned Alexander the Great, who died as a result, and retrieved the Staff.
By the time of the Renaissance, Iltani's sarcophagus had been moved to the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. Fellow Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze explored her tomb and took the seal from her sarcophagus, which helped him to acquire the armor of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad.
By the year 2000, a statue of Iltani stood in the Mentor's office in Dubai.
- Iltani is the feminine form of a Babylonian word meaning "lucky" or "favored by the god(dess)".
