Merchant Stand Destruction was a virtual representation of one of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


Altaïr met an informant, who requested the Assassin's help with destroying the stands of corrupt merchants in the market, in exchange for information on the Merchant King.


Altaïr approached the informant in an alley.

  • Informant: Hold a moment, Altaïr! I have a strange request, but perhaps you'll see fit to assist me. I know you seek the Merchant King's life, but there are others in the city, just as cruel. Several shopkeepers in this district have taken to selling rotten meat. It's cheap for them to acquire, and they care little for the illness that it causes. Several children have already died as a result. We should not allow this injustice to continue. Would you be willing to put a stop to this?

Altaïr destroyed the stands of the corrupt merchants and returned to the informant.

  • Informant: Thank you, brother. You've saved untold lives. In return for your kindness, I'll give you a bit of information you might find useful. I overheard two of the Merchant King's servants this morning. It seems they've left some scaffolding, just outside his personal quarters. You could use it to reach him that much quicker.


Altaïr learned of a scaffolding outside Abu'l Nuqoud's personal quarters, which could be used to easily reach him.
