The Indian Assassins were the Brotherhood of Assassins located in India. They were the enemies of Portuguese explorers that were under the secret command of the Templars and also the British Templars who sought Pieces of Eden.
During the early 16th century, the Indian Assassins received help from their Italian brothers to fight off the Portuguese employed by Manuel I of Portugal in Calicut, who was puppeteered by the Templars. They set Pedro Álvares Cabral's storehouses and shops on fire, and took out several key commanders of his army. After Cabral's departure, the Assassins found out that they knew the location of the Calicut Assassins Guild.
After Manuel I sent Vasco da Gama to Calicut to enforce the Portuguese rule, the Indian Assassins hid several relics and documents and evacuated their family and friends. They established an army of disguised Assassins, and killed most of Gama's commanders in plain sight, forcing them to flee.
In the mid 19th century, the Indian Assassin Arbaaz Mir was in search of an artifact – the Koh-i-Noor diamond – which was possessed by the Sikh Empire's ruler, Maharaja Ranjit Singh; this artifact was also sought after by the British Templars, notably General Francis Cotton. While the Templars' plan to assassinate Singh were successful, transgressions led to the Koh-i-Noor being shattered into many shards.
In 2013, Jot Soora stumbled upon secret coding which allowed him too see the memories of himself and his girlfriend whose ancestry intertwined through that of Arbaaz Mir and his servant, Raza Soora. With this information, Jot was highly sought out by both the Templars and the Assassins. The Assassins sent agents Siobhan Dhami and her brother Jasdip Dhami while the Templars sent a strike team led by Juhani Otso Berg. The Assassins were ultimately successful in retrieving Jot, but sustained heavy losses along the way.
The Indian Assassins practices were heavily influenced by the culture in which they lived. They were known to execute those members of their own Order who were seen to have breached the Creed, either through dangerous incompetence or by bringing attention to the Order, as in the case of Jayadeep Mir in 1860, though on this occasion the execution was ultimately suspended.
