- "Such is our role, Nerkaa. The few of us must stand against very many."
- ―Qulan Gal to Nergüi, regarding the Mongolian Assassins.[src]
Qulan Gal was a member of the Mongolian Brotherhood of Assassins. He was one of the Order's most renowned members, due to his vital role in the assassination of Genghis Khan alongside Darim, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's son.
During the early 13th century, the conqueror Genghis Khan caused turmoil in Mongolia, quickly overtaking land with a Sword of Eden. As a result of Genghis Khan's tyranny, Qulan Gal swore to stand against him, and was later integral in Genghis's assassination.
Assassination of Genghis KhanEdit
In 1227, the four of them devised a plan to assassinate Genghis Khan in his camp in Xingging in Xia Province. While Qulan Gal and Altaïr went into the camp together, Darim covered them from a distance with his crossbow. However, Altaïr unknowingly allowed himself to be seen and was attacked by a Mongol soldier, though Qulan killed the Mongol before he could raise the alarm. From there, Qulan safely escorted Altaïr out of the camp and proceeded to compose another plan with Darim.
Qulan and Darim then devised to flush Khan out of his tent, and the latter did so after realizing the danger. Qulan Gal acted quickly and shot Khan's horse, causing him to fall off, which injured him on impact with the ground. Afterwards, Darim shot the conqueror with his crossbow, finishing Khan off. During the assassination, Qulan rescued the imprisoned Assassin apprentice Nergüi, who would later go on to assassinate Hülegü Khan, Genghis Khan's grandson.
Qulan Gal's role in the assassination of Genghis Khan, which allowed the Assassin Order to spread its influence, earned Qulan Gal great praise, so much so that a statue of him was built in his honor in the Sanctuary underneath the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni, Italy.
By the time of the Renaissance, Qulan Gal's sarcophagus had been moved to the Rocca di Ravaldino in Forlì, Italy. The Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze explored Qulan's tomb and took the seal from his sarcophagus, which helped the former acquire the Armor of Altaïr.
