Born during the Renaissance, Domingo de la Torre was a mercenary General from Saragossa with a four-decade career of leading soldiers into battle, before eventually becoming a Master of Arms for the Assassins.
A calm and resolved man, Domingo began his career at a young age as a conscript of the Spanish army and rose through the ranks at an unprecedented speed. A natural, charismatic leader and peerless combatant, he left the army to form his own mercenary group named Los Hijos Del Leon, or Sons of the Lion, and earn his fortune. Their reputation spanned over two decades, serving as bodyguards to Spanish nobles and participating in countless battles.
Despite his unrivaled tactical and combat skills, the war machine claimed many of Domingo's companions, leaving him alone and despondent. After twenty five years of bloodshed, he disbanded the Sons of the Lion, filled with regrets that medals and gold could not heal.
Domingo's guilt set him on a pilgrimage, during which he came across a group of Assassins. Over a long night of conversation, he learned of the teachings of the Brotherhood and saw a true opportunity for his own redemption. Domingo embraced the Creed, believing this would be his last chance to fight for something virtuous rather that the interests of warmongering nobles, and dedicated his remaining days to the Brotherhood.
