Wei Yu was the assassin of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. For his act in fighting tyranny and preserving the welfare of the people, Wei Yu is regarded by the Assassin Brotherhood as one of their predecessors.
By the time of the Italian Renaissance, a tomb dedicated to Wei Yu was located on the top floor of the Torre Grossa in San Gimignano, Italy. The Italian Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze would later explore his tomb and take the hidden seal from inside the tomb's sarcophagus, allowing him to unlock the vault under the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni that held Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's armor.
