Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in South America. [citation needed]

Originally a colony of Portugal, Brazil achieved its independence in 1822 with the formation of the Empire of Brazil. [citation needed]


In the late 5th century BCE, through a projection of a map created by the Staff of Hermes Trismegistus, an Isu artifact was noted to be located in southeastern Brazil, north of what became the city of São Paulo in modern times.[1]

On 14 May 1501, Amerigo Vespucci reached Rio de Janeiro Bay and Rio de la Plata during his third voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.[2]

By 1719, the Templars had a safehouse located in Rio de Janeiro, which was used to store blood vials containing the blood of members of their Order, including Woodes Rogers and Benjamin Hornigold.[3] During the Seven Years' War, the Templar Shay Cormac sent troop filled ships to the cities of Santa-Maria-de-Belém and Rio de Janeiro in order to help further Templar influence in those cities.[4][5]

As of September 2012, an Assassin team was located in São Paulo. Secretly, there was a double agent in the team who was leaking their position to the Templars, which forced them to delay their progress and find the spy. After having done so successfully, they cut off contact with the Assassin headquarters and presumably moved to another city.[6]

Months later in December, the Assassin Desmond Miles visited São Paulo, in order to retrieve a power source for the Grand Temple, which was held by a rich woman spectating a mixed martial arts tournament. However, as he reached the room the woman resided in, Desmond discovered that the Templar agent Daniel Cross had killed her and taken the power source with him, prompting a chase between the two. Fortunately, Desmond was able to catch up to Daniel and retrieve the artifact after a fist-fight, before safely escaping on the subway.[7]
