Moloch (unknown - 1192), also referred to as The Bull, was a religious zealot with an equally fanatical group of followers, and a Templar associate based in Cyprus.

Moloch had two twin sons, Shalim and Shahar, who were also major Templar figures.

BiographyEdit

Upon discovering that an Assassin, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, and his companion, Maria Thorpe, had arrived in his city, Moloch promptly placed a price on both their heads. After Jonas' death at Altaïr's hands, Moloch's religious followers were stirred up into a riot.

Afterwards, Maria, who had met Moloch before, told Altaïr of him, describing him as a "pious blowhard" and saying that he resided in Kantara Castle.

Altaïr infiltrated the fortress and soon found Moloch, who he attempted to assassinate. However, Moloch detected his presence, catching him by the throat and throwing him across the room.

The two engaged in a duel, and although Moloch had a size advantage, the Assassin proved to be more skilled and was able to kill him.

Personality and characteristicsEdit

Moloch was a towering man of immense strength, wielding a flail resembiling a morning star.

He was also a religious fanatic who surrounded himself with followers that shared his zealous ideas of serving their God.

TriviaEdit

  • The name Moloch referred to an ancient Ammonite god, and was later adapted to describe something that required a costly sacrifice.
  • Moloch was the narrator of the trailer for Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines.
  • Moloch's character model was noticeably unique, in that he possessed a larger body structure than most other characters in Bloodlines.
  • Moloch's weapon, named the "Mace of the Bull," was available for purchase in Assassin's Creed II, exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It was unlocked once Assassin's Creed II was synchronized with a completed game save of Bloodlines.
  • Like most major antagonists of Bloodlines, Moloch could not be grabbed, and would push Altaïr away every time he tried.
