"We submit ourselves to eternal servitude in service of a grander fulfillment. We submit the world to itself it being a product that feeds life to life and death to death."
―John Standish, 2013.[src]

The Instruments of the First Will, also known as the Juno cult, is an ancient pagan cult who worship the Isuan entities as their almighty. Originating as a collective secret society, that draws members and resources from within the Templar Order and the Assassin Order, their primary mission is to revive their Isuan deities, most notably, Juno, and allow them to rule the world. The Instruments of the First Will have become an enemy in common between the Assassins and the Templars. A Sage is always a High Ranking member of the Instruments of the First Will.

HistoryEdit

The Rise of MonotheismEdit

Back before the rise of monotheism, there were pagan religions which worshiped the surviving Isu beings as their deities. Ever since the rise of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, the pagan religions that worshiped the Isu as deities lost almost all of their followers, but a few remained loyal to their Isu ideology. [citation needed]

World War IEdit

In 1916, The Master Spy, a Sage, was leading the Instruments of the First Will's followers in London. He had not only converted many of the Templar spies to his religion, but also many other citizens of London.

Winston Churchill had caught wind of his doings and reported to Lydia Frye. Churchill described the Master Spy's group as a fanatical, religious cult, as well as a serious threat to London, and tasked Lydia Frye to deal with the group immediately.

A war nurse, who is a member of the cult, and her associate are taking soldiers blood in "odd looking cubes" for an unknown purpose. Churchill recommends silencing her and her associate, which Lydia does. Another member, a spy, is detained by the British Military in the Tower of London. He stated making fanatic claims about the Assassin's Brotherhood, so Churchill suggested it would be in Lydia’s best interests to silence him. He eventually breaks out and tries to escape. Lydia sneaks into The Tower of London and tricks the guards into murdering him.

After ridding much of the spies strongholds and weapons, Lydia eventually tracks down the spies to their main hidden hideout. After she kill's the German Templar spies, the Master Spy appears and begins to battle her while "calling out" to his beloved. After a short fight, he is forced to escape by using a flash grenade and flees to the cult's main stronghold. At the Stronghold, the Master Spy has all of his followers burn up all of their things relating to Juno or the Isu. After catching up to the Master Spy surrounded by his followers in a Stronghold, she kills them all. Winston Churchill thanks her for this service to Britain.  

Infiltrating and hacking AbstergoEdit

In operation around 2013, one of the Instruments of the First Will's primary agents was thread of Abstergo IT, John Standish, who was also a Sage. During his time at the Abstergo Entertainment office in Montreal, John distributed the collective's manifesto throughout the building via quick response codes on sticky labels.[1] John provided the Assassins with intel through a research analyst. He also got the analyst to hack into confidential folders regarding Abstergo data regarding the Precursors and Templars.

However, Abstergo got wind of the hackings and detained all of the research team. John Standish, not wanting to expose himself, reassures Melanie Lemay, the acting head of the Sample 17 Project, that he would find the hacker whiten a week's time. Meanwhile, he gets the research analyst to go to the main servers to wipe out evidence of the hackings. His true intentions were to provide Juno, now a digital being, to provide her with the research analyst's body so as to transfer her essence into.

Juno was weak from being in the servers and was not strong enough to shift her essence into the analyst's body, thus foiling John's plans and enraging him. He went insane, exposed himself as a Sage and injected a non-lethal amount of poison into the analyst. John was killed by the Abstergo security team and the analyst eventually recovered from the poisoning.

Locating the Shroud of EdenEdit

In 2015, Templar Master Álvaro Gramatica desired a Shroud of Eden in his attempt to vastly accelerate the progress of his Phoenix ProjectSigma Team manages to fight off the Assassin interference and retrieve a Shroud of Eden. After Violet da Costa, secretly a member of the Instruments of the First Will, spoke to Álvaro about his true intentions for the Shroud, she spoke to Juno informing her that the Shroud of Eden 2 was in Abstergo's possession. Though Violet expressed fear of the danger that might befall Juno should anyone discover her plans, Juno reassured her that she had achieved her mission admirably and that she will save the world.

Pursuing the AssassinsEdit

In 2017, Jasdip Dhami had defected to the Instruments of the First Will due to him becoming disillusioned by the Assassins and the Templars methods and ideology. He told Bishop that he opposed the idea of using initiates in their "eternal war" with the Templars. He ambushed an Assassin cell in Hong Kong, while the Assassins were trying to break into an Abstergo Industries to find information regarding the Phoenix Project, and murdered all of the Assassins present there, aside from Charlotte de la Cruz who had tried to escape Dhami but he pursued her and fought her on top of Moneo's vehicle.

During the fight, an Instrument managed to injure Moneo with a Shruriken and the van crashed. Charlotte interrogated Jasdip but both of them had to flee before the authorities arrived. Jasdip then ambushed the Assassins, Kiyoshi Takakura and Arend Schut Cunningham, in Abstergo Entertainment Facility in Montreal. Jasdip manages to decapitate Felix Oladele, an Animus Specialist and the Assassins' primary objective. Jasdip fought the two Assassins and manages to heavily wound them both. Before Jasdip could deliver the killing blow to Arend, Kiyoshi shot Jasdip in the back. Jasdip tried to fleeing through the window, but falls of the window cleaner's mobile.

Encountering the Black CrossEdit

After Juhani Otso Berg begins to suspect that there is a splinter cell within the Templar Order, he takes up the mantle of the Black Cross in an attempt to discover them. His search lands him to Berlin, Germany, where he catches up to Heinrich Hart, a man whom he believes to be an Assassin spy. After a brief struggle with him, he deduces that he is not an Assassin. After momentarily recovering, Heinrich Hart proclaims that he is not a Templar either, but is "her" instrument before setting off an explosion, which killed 170 people.

IdeologyEdit

Main GoalsEdit

Being an Isu pagan cult, the members of the Instruments of the First Will believe that humanity should submit to and worship the First Civilization once more. Their primary purpose is the release of Juno from her imprisonment.[2] At most times, a high-ranking member of the cult is often a Sage. Examples of these are John Standish or The Master Spy.

Religious Belief System Edit

Unlike the Knights Templars or the Assassins Brotherhood, who both view the Isu as an extremely advanced precursor species to humanity, the Instruments view the Isu as deities to be worshiped. Their beliefs are most similar to fanatical and tyrannical views of the Templars. The Instruments of First Will wish to take over the world so as to turn humanity into slaves for the First Civilization.

Their primary goal is to revive Juno into a physical vessel so as to allow her to take over the world. It is still unknown if they are also attempting to resurrect other members of the Isu race as well. [3] The members of this cult are often very fanatical. Examples of this are Heinrich Hart's suicide bombing, which killed 170 people, in the name of Juno.

Infiltrating the Assassins and TemplarsEdit

Members of this cult has infiltrated both the Assassins Brotherhood and the Knights Templar and are extracting resources from both of them to further progress with their goals. Examples of this are Violet da Costa, who is also a high ranking Templar Knight and a secret member of The Instruments of the First Will. There is also one known Assassin, Jasdip Dhami, who defected to the Instruments of the First Will and is hunting his former Assassin allies and possibly Templar allies.

So far at least two known Instruments have infiltrated Abstergo Industries. One of them is a Sage John Standish who had infiltrated Abstergo Entertainment in Montreal, Canada and the other is an engineer, Heinrich Hart, who had infiltrated an Abstergo Branch in Berlin, Germany developing experimental technologies, such as his electrical whip.

Post-Mortem Belief SystemEdit

It is their firm belief that after their death, Juno will reward them by allowing their consciousness into The Grey, a post-mortem paradise inside a digital framework. It was created by Juno for her loyal followers, where they will live on happily.

TriviaEdit

  • The emblem is the symbol of the asteroid 3 Juno, the symbol itself is meant to be a scepter topped with a star.
  • The emblem can also be seen in The Lost Archive memory The Truth.
