A corseque is a weapon typified by three blades mounted atop a long shaft, with one serving as the central spearhead and the other two branching from beneath it as supplementary blades. Unlike the partisan, the two lateral protrusions are designed to inflict injury rather than to parry attacks. The model acquired by the Assassin Arno Dorian boasted particularly tapered blades and was among his more formidable weapons.
The corseque was a popular weapon of choice for soldiers throughout Europe during the Renaissance. By the time of the French Revolution, it was still prevalent despite melee weapons being phased out by firearms. A particular variant known as the Crusader's Corseque was sold in Paris at this time. Sometime between April 1796 and July 1797, the Assassin Arno Dorian of the French Brotherhood was given a corseque by Police Minister Charles Cochon de Lapparent as a reward for solving the murder of the apothecary Madame Beaudry.
