Stearns

Alfred Stearns (born c. 1930) is a member of the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order and a retired employee of Abstergo Industries. Following his retirement, he was replaced as Head of Operations by fellow Inner Sanctum's member, Laetitia England.

BiographyEdit

In 2000, Stearns personally oversaw the "Great Purge", an operation to exterminate all Assassin camps and safehouses, following the return of the Templar sleeper agent Daniel Cross to Abstergo's Philadelphia facility.[1]

Using Daniel's memories obtained from him via interrogation, Stearns sent teams of Templars dressed in military fatigues to the various Assassin hideouts Daniel had visited. In Philadelphia, the Taurus team discovered a hidden chamber underneath an Assassin safehouse disguised as a Chinese laundromat.[1]

In October 2016, he was present at Simon Hathaway's induction into the Inner Sanctum and watched his presentation for a new direction to the Historical Research Division, and in turn, the Templar Order. Ten days later, Stearns was present at another meeting with the members of the Inner Sanctum, which was interrupted by Hathaway, causing some tension among the members.[2]

Stearns and the rest listened to Hathaway's retelling of the Sword of Eden's history, Hathaway's ancestor and Jacques de Molay's vision for the Templar Order. None attempted to wield it and he remained silent along with Alan Rikkin, David Kilkerman and Álvaro Gramática after having witnessed the Sword of Eden activated. It ended with laughter after Rikkin asked for his sword back.[2]

In March 2017, the Inner Sanctum invited the new Black Cross to a meeting in Quebec, during which Alfred was present. Displeased that he auto-proclamed himself their inquisitor, they threatened him and demanded to know his identity. The masked man responded that he came only as a courtesy, to inform them that he was investigating an hostile fifth column within the Order. After affirming his independance, the Black Cross dropped a smoke bomb and disappeared. [3]

Personality and characteristicsEdit

Stearns viewed Daniel Cross as Abstergo's asset. Despite the objections of Dr. Sung, he was willing to risk Cross' life, in order to gain information required for the start of the Great Purge.[1]
