Our search of St. Rafael Abbey revealed critical intelligence: Torquemada seeks the Apple of Eden! He schemes ferociously for information regarding its location.
Meanwhile, Ramirez hunts for the three pieces of the Staff of Eden, another long-forgotten artifact with the power to secure the Inquisition's hold on Spain. Could he already have the first piece? Ramirez's Lieutenant Cadavid may have the answer. He is recruiting at a local mercenary base.
The Assassins made their way through the base and soon reached Lieutenant Cadavid in a study room.
- Lt. Cadavid: An Assassin? What are you doing here?! Prepare to die!
Cadavid engaged the Assassins in combat but was fatally wounded.
- Lt. Cadavid: *cough, gasp* You are too late, and my death benefits you not at all; the plan is in motion, and we are on our way to victory! Ramírez already possesses the first piece of the Staff... *cough, cough* He and Captain Ordóñez are protecting it at Sádaba Castle until they can transport it to the Royal Monastery of Saint-Thomas. You will never reach them! *gasp...*
The Assassins confirmed that Ramírez did indeed have a piece of the Staff of Eden, they learned that he and Ordóñez had taken refuge in Sádaba Castle. The Assassins eliminated Cadavid, one of Ramírez's loyal lieutenant.
