The deer family, or cervidae, are a group of hoofed mammals found in Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa, and notably include the larger elk species.


5th century BCE

In the 5th century BCE deer inhabited the wilds of Greece.[1]

Of special note among the deer was the Hind of Keryneia, who roamed the forests of Artemision Point in Euboea, until the Spartan misthios Kassandra hunted it down and slew it.[2]


Towards the end of 1500, Rodrigo Borgia was charged by a stag during a hunting trip.[3]

18th century

The Kanien'kehá:ka Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton was adept at hunting deer and female elk, as well as fighting male elk. During his exploration of the North American frontier, he was informed of a buck rumored to be impervious to firearms, and of an overly aggressive elk. He successfully hunted both animals.[4]

Deer were also common in River Valley and Glace Bay during the Seven Years' War. The Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac would often hunt deer for crafting purposes or as part of hunting challenges.[5]

20th century

Nikolai Orelov trained his son Kenya to hunt deer. However, Kenya found it difficult to kill the animal after shooting it, despite Nikolai's orders to end its suffering.[6]
