Plot summary

30 B.C.: Alexandria, Egypt. Octavian's army continues to close in on Cleopatra. As she engages in tactical discussions with her closest advisors, the sounds of fighting begin outside of the nearby doorway. Suddenly the doors smash wide open...

44 B.C.: Rome. Aya, Brutus and Cassius remain surrounded by the mob lead by Mark Antony. A battle commences, with the mob easily outmatched by the proto Assassins. Brutus knocks Mark Antony to the ground, and holds a blade over him whilst remarking that he had turned his back on the Roman Republic. Aya warns Brutus that he had pledged to save the Roman people, and by killing Antony, he would condemn them all to fear. Brutus smashes the blade in frustration upon the ground, as Aya helps Mark Antony to his feet.

Later that day, Aya and Brutus discuss the situation in Rome atop an aqueduct. He acknowledges that he must leave the city now, and intends to make for Crete. He urges Aya to create a new Bureau, and to lead it correctly from the shadows. Aya gifts him a specially made blade for his travels. Aya recalls, as history recorded, that Brutus never returned to Rome, and was eventually tracked down and killed by Mark Antony's allies in Macedonia. Though rumours suggest he may have in fact have survived under another alias.

Aya takes on the name of Amunet, reflecting her new status as The Hidden One. Caesar's adopted son, Octavian, takes over the power vaccum left in Rome. His influence eventually spread to other countries, such as Egypt...

30 B.C.: Alexandria, Egypt. With the doors wide open, Cleopatra's guards rush out and are summarily killed by an unseen assailant. A fearless Caesarion runs out into the fray, and is knocked unconscious. Cleopatra calls out to Octavian to show himself, but in response Aya emerges from the shadows to confront her. Cleopatra believes her son killed, and tries to strike Aya, but her blow is blocked. Aya warns that she did not kill Caesarion, but that if Cleopatra does not step down from power Octavian would likely kill them both before long. She argues that Egypt suffers under a needless war, and for the good of the country Cleopatra should surrender. Cleopatra reluctantly agrees, on condition that Aya take Caesarion safely away to train with her. Aya gives a small potion bottle to Cleopatra. A short time later, Cleopatra sits upon her throne, and orders her generals to stand down. She drinks the potion, and slumps to the ground in death.

On a nearby boat, Aya reunites with Phoxidas and sails away from the area. An unconscious Caesarion regains his bearings, and realises that he is leaving Egypt. Aya tells him to keep Egypt in his heart, for they are to travel to other places where they will remain in the shadows.[2]
