Bloodstone Unit was an extremist Assassin cell led by Colonel Boris Pash. Under his leadership, the unit carried out missions during the Cold War and the critical relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union. Their secondary objective was to find Pieces of Eden located around the world.

By applying secret brainwashing tactics via Project BLUEBIRD, Pash trained the perfect unit of killers who would obey him without question, although through these methods the unit violated the Creed.

History

Founded between the 1950s and 60s by director of the CIA, William King Harvey–possibly in honor of the operation led by Pash–the Bloodstone Unit served as the operational jury and executioner under the guise of seeking the freedom of mankind.[1]

Active during the Vietnam War, this organization eliminated selected targets, especially Templars who had infiltrated the US military or the Vietnamese regime. It also was responsible for tracking down Pieces of Eden that Pash could use to continue his experiments in mental manipulation, which applied to both interrogating enemies and his own soldiers.[1]

The Colonel's extremist methods would not pass unnoticed by the Assassin Brotherhood, who were concerned about the potential political consequences of their operations. The defining moment was the participation of William Greer and Lee Harvey Oswald in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a coordinated effort aimed to obtain his Apple of Eden.[1]

Despite not being explicitly authorized to, several members of the Assassins sought to put an end to the rogue unit's operations. Among them was Alekseï Gavrani, a former member of the unit.[1]
