PL Truth SeekerHQ.png I wanted to ask you something. Which is… what's your name?

The title of this article is conjecture. Although the subject of this article is canon, no official name for it has been given.

This article is about the Assassin rank. You may be looking for the equivalent rank in the Templar Order.

An Assassin leader is a member of the Assassin Brotherhood who heads a branch of the organization.[1]

Before the 20th century, contact between countries was difficult and almost non-existent, resulting in the various branches of Assassins each having their own leader rather than being united under a single individual. On some occasions, these Assassin leaders were given the honorific of Mentor, having proven they were wise enough, and after they had trained a high number of Assassin apprentices.[1]

During the 20th century, when contact between countries was stable and common, the Assassin Brotherhood was united under a single leader, who was from then on known as the Mentor only.[1]

  • During the Den Defense in Assassin's Creed: Revelations, there is a special type of Assassin unit that generates morale and unlocks rooftops for other Assassins to make their stand on. Although this type of unit is called "Assassin Leader", it should not be confused with its counterpart in the official Assassin's Creed role, as it is merely a designation of the unit's role in the battle.
