Wei Yu (Chinese: 魏羽 ) was an Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood who lived during the Qin dynasty. He became legendary for his assassination of the tyrannical Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.
The first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, was a tyrannical ruler with ties to Templar Order. In order to protect the people, the Assassins resolved to free the land from Qin Shi Huang's oppression.
By the time of the Italian Renaissance, Wei Yu's sarcophagus had been moved to San Gimignano, Italy, on the top floor of the Torre Grossa. The Italian Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze would later explore his tomb and take the hidden seal from inside the sarcophagus, allowing him to unlock the vault under the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni that held Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's armor.
