Insignia 4

The Persian Assassin insignia

The Persian Brotherhood of Assassins was the branch of Assassins located in the Persian Empire during the 5th century BCE.

In 465 BCE, the Persian Assassin Darius assassinated the Persian King Xerxes I, who was supported by the Templars,[1] which was the first usage of the Assassins' iconic Hidden Blade. This made Darius one of the most renowned Assassins in the Order.[2]

In 1747, Salah Bey, the captain of Nāder Shāh's guards and a member of the Persian Brotherhood of Assassins, assassinated Nāder Shāh in an attempt to retrieve his Piece of Eden, the Koh-i-Noor diamond. However, the Koh-i-Noor in the Shāh's possession was discovered to have ended up in the hands of Ahmad Shāh Durrānī, an Afghan chief. Salah thus planned to pursue him in order to acquire the Piece of Eden.[3]
