Direct tie-in to the brand-new videogame, Assassin's Creed Origins! Witness the very beginning of the Assassin's Creed!
30 B.C.: Alexandria, Egypt. Caesarion, son of Cleopatra, practices his combat skills with a soldier. The soldier easily knocks Caesarion to the floor several times in front of Cleopatra. She comforts her son by telling him that every defeat is a chance to learn towards a victory. They are interrupted by the sight of fires in the distance, as Octavian's army closes in.
44 B.C.: Rome. Three hours after Caesar's death. The city erupts in violence and shock at the news. Mark Antony seizes the opportunity, addressing the crowds and telling them to take revenge on the senators who have stolen Caesar from the people. One of the senators is captured by the crowd, and is brutally beaten. Aya watches on from a nearby rooftop, and is disgusted by what she sees, and fires an arrow from her bow to release the senator to a quick merciful death. Roman soldiers spot her, and she is wounded in the arm by a glancing arrow. With the crowd in pursuit of her, she manages to lead them away, before eventually returning to Mark Antony. She pleads to him to calm down the crowds, but he merely states that he cannot without bringing Brutus to them for justice. As the crowd returns, they give chase to Aya once more and she is forced to flee again. Climbing an aqueduct, the Roman soldiers climb up to find her, forcing her to engage in a melee battle. Heavily outnumbered, she eventually gets knocked down - smacking her head against the stonework. Collapsing unconscious into the running water, she is swept away by the current.
A time later within a storeroom, Aya is awoken by a splash of water, and finds herself in front of Brutus and Cassius with her wounds bandaged. Brutus mentions that he is happy they found her before Mark Antony, and that he regrets not killing him. Aya retorts that killing in public was a terrible plan for Caesar's assassination, and pulls out Brutus's knife, holding it to his throat. Cassius interjects advising that it would be in their best interest to leave whilst soldiers hunt for them.
They leave together, and walk along the aqueducts at nightfall. Brutus relates that he has had a vision and must now make his way to Crete. As they walk, a crowd surrounds an old woman below. Fearing an innocent may be about to die, Aya tells Brutus to follow his vision, but that her purpose remains in saving Rome. She performs a Leap of Faith, and engages the crowd.
