Jean-Paul Marat (24 May 1743 – 13 July 1793) was a physician, political theorist and scientist, as well as a radical journalist and politician during the French Revolution.
Marat signed a letter which authorized a violent gang to rob graves in Île de la Cité. However, the Assassin Arno Dorian stole the letter, eliminating the gang's activities.
Marat was assassinated by Charlotte Corday in 1793 while taking a medicinal bath. Arno Dorian investigated the circumstances of his death.
In 2012, Clay Kaczmarek included Marat in one of the Glyphs inside the Animus for Desmond Miles to find.
- While Robesppiere and many his fellow Jacobins were Templars, Marat's membership nor any connection with the Templars are not known.
