Ezio Auditore da Firenze assassinating a target

Assassination targets are individuals that the Assassin Brotherhood — and in select instances, the Templar Order — deems worthy of elimination. Over the centuries, the Assassins killed many individuals they believed to be corrupt and a danger to humanity, particularly Templars and their associates.

Below is a chronological list of notable victims, by faction and assassin responsible.

Elimination by Assassins

Kassandra of Sparta

In the 5th Century BCE, during the Peloponnesian War, in Ancient Greece, the misthios Kassandra of Sparta, also known as "The Eagle-Bearer," assassinated many, including members of the Cult of Kosmos and the Order of the Ancients.  

Bayek of Siwa and Aya of Alexandria

Around the latter half of 1st century BCE, in Ancient Egypt, the Hidden Ones Bayek of Siwa and Aya of Alexandria carried out assassinations to avenge their son Khemu, and later for their duties as Hidden Ones.

Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad

Around the time of the Third Crusade, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad assassinated various individuals during his quest to find the Chalice in 1190. He later eliminated nine tyrannical public figures in an effort to restore his lost rank and regain honor within the Assassin Order.

Following his ascension to Mentor of the Order, he carried out several assassinations to aid the Cypriot Resistance in 1192, and continued to eliminate notable targets throughout his life.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze

During the Renaissance, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze eliminated various individuals in order to avenge the death of his family members, free the Spanish Assassins, and liberate the Italian city-states – Florence, San Gimignano, Forlì, Venice and Rome – as well as the Ottoman city of Constantinople and Byzantine underground outpost of Derinkuyu from corruption.

Aguilar de Nerha

During the Spanish Inquisition, Aguilar de Nerha eliminated conspirators associated with the Knights Templar.

Shao Jun

After the Great Rites Controversy which resulted in the decimation of the Chinese Brotherhood at the hands of the Eight Tigers, Shao Jun assassinated the Templars responsible in a campaign to free China and restore the Chinese Assassins.

Edward Kenway

Edward Kenway assassinated several individuals during the Golden Age of Piracy in his quest for riches and glory as a pirate, and later in service of the Assassin Order.

Adéwalé

During the early 18th century, Adéwalé served as quartermaster on Edward Kenway's ship before eventually joining the Assassin Brotherhood and assuming the captaincy of his own vessel.

In 1735, he briefly set aside his duties as an Assassin in order to aid the Maroon rebellion in Saint Domingue.

Aveline de Grandpré

Aveline de Grandpré assassinated various targets between the French and Indian War and American Revolutionary War in an effort to free New Orleans from Templar influence and liberate victims of the slave trade.

Ratonhnhaké:ton

Before, during, and after the events of the American Revolutionary War, the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton, son of the Templar Haytham Kenway and grandson of pirate turned Assassin Edward Kenway, eliminated various Templars in order to protect his tribe and further the pursuit of freedom for the citizens of the thirteen colonies of the United States.

Following a meeting with George Washington, Ratonhnhaké:ton found himself in an alternate reality created by an Apple of Eden. There, he assassinated several individuals while experiencing the alternate timeline.

Arno Dorian

Following the death of his adoptive father, the Templar Grand Master François de la Serre, Arno Dorian joined the Assassin Brotherhood and embarked on a quest to find the perpetrators of the murder and their motivations.

While pursuing his own agenda, Arno also undertook several missions in order to thwart the efforts of the Templars, who tried to take control of the French Revolution.

Jacob and Evie Frye

The twins Jacob and Evie Frye were active in London and its surrounding areas in 1868 as the Industrial Revolution reached its climax. There, they fought against the inequality and poverty engineered by the Templars, taking over organized crime in the city in an effort to destabilize the Templars' hold over it and stop them from acquiring a powerful Piece of Eden. 20 years later, after the incapacitation of her brother, Evie returned to London and was active in the hunt for Jack the Ripper, a traitorous and gruesome Assassin turncoat.

Lydia Frye

During World War I, Lydia Frye allied herself with Winston Churchill to take down a German-Templar spy network led by a Sage.

Nikolai Orelov

During the Russian Revolution, Nikolai Orelov served his Order faithfully, rising to the rank of Master Assassin before growing disillusioned and leaving the order.

Desmond Miles

Following his kidnapping by Abstergo Industries and training with the Assassins, Desmond Miles was forced by Juno to assassinate Lucy Stillman in the Colosseum Vault for her secret defection and betrayal. He later infiltrated the Abstergo Industries headquarters in Rome and assassinated two prominent members of their Order.

Other Assassins

Below is a chronological list of other notable assassinations, by century and, if known, Assassin responsible:

Elimination by Templars

Haytham Kenway

Son of the Assassin Edward Kenway, Haytham was converted to the Templar cause at a young age by Reginald Birch. A member of the British Rite, he later became the Grand Master of the Colonial Rite.

Shay Cormac

Formerly a member of the Colonial Assassins, Shay Cormac later became a famous Assassin hunter after he joined the Templar Order, pursuing his former Assassin brothers and sisters.

Daniel Cross

Brainwashed from an early age by the Templar-led Abstergo Industries, Daniel Cross served as a sleeper agent inside the Assassin Order and betrayed them leading to the decimation of the Assassins.
