Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-AC1

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


Altaïr came across another pair of civilians, discussing security of the Souk Al-Silaah. One of them mentioned a letter to Abu'l Nuqoud which explained the problem.


Altaïr listened to the two civilians' conversation from a distance.

  • Civilian 1: Something needs to be done. It's only a matter of time before someone else discovers it.
  • Civilian 2: Tell him then. It's in his best interest to keep the souk secure.
  • Civilian 1: He won't meet with me. Too busy with this new deal of his.
  • Civilian 2: And the guards?
  • Civilian 1: Tried already. They won't lift a finger, unless the order comes from him.
  • Civilian 2: Then what will you do?
  • Civilian 1: I'll go to Abu'l Nuqoud.
  • Civilian 2: The Merchant King? He won't see you.
  • Civilian 1: He doesn't have to. I've written him a letter which explains the problem. He can read it, and decide for himself.

Altaïr then followed the carrier and took the letter during an opportune moment.


Altaïr acquired a letter with a map, which showed the northeastern rooftops providing an easy access to the souk's central courtyard.
