Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad (1165 - 1257, 2012- Present) was a Syrian Assassin during the Middle Ages and, from 1191 until his death, the Mentor of the Assassins in the Levant. Raised to be an Assassin from birth, Altaïr obtained the rank of Master Assassin by his twenty-fourth year. However, following his failure to obtain the Apple from Robert de Sable in early 1191, and subsequently allowing the Templars to attack the city of Masyaf, headquarters to the Order of Assassins, he was demoted to the rank of novice and sent on a quest for redemption.
Tasked with the deaths of nine individuals, who, unbeknown to him, made up the ranks of the Templar Order in the Holy Land, Altaïr began a quest to change his ways and liberate the Kingdom from the corruption of the nine. During his quest however, Altaïr learned of a plot far more sinister than originally believed. Completing his mission to kill the nine targets, and cleansing the Order of its treacherous leader Al Mualim, Altaïr rose to the rank of Mentor, taking the Assassins into a new, more secretive direction.
With the Apple in hand, Altaïr changed the ways his Order lived their lives; writing the details in his fabled Codex for later generations of the Order to read. Altaïr's vision of the Assassin Order was for them to be across the world living among the people and started setting up Assassins Guilds during his tenure as Mentor. During his adventures Altaïr strengthened the Order, stopped the Templars various times and was able to prevent the uprising of Genghis Khan.
His name would continue to resonate through the Order in later years, greatly influencing the lives of his descendants and other Assassins in years to come. His bloodline would go on to contain an important figure in the Assassin Order, Desmond Miles. He would be revived by Cole MacGrath with help from A special watch to help in recreating a more powerful Assassin's Order.
Revival in the 2010'sEdit
After his death,Altaïr would be revived by Cole MacGrath, whom shortly after his revival, would be given a special watch, and a place as the Co-Supreme Mentors in the Assassin's Order to help Cole and hisdesendance revive the Creed into a world-wide power. He would try to not "rely" on the Dunbar Watch much as he would treat his robes with upmost respect. Also in public(outside Villa Auditore) Altaïr, would be told to be Ezio and Desmond's brother.
