Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-AC1

Eavesdropping was a virtual representation of one of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


Altaïr came across two merchants who had worked with Talal before. The Assassin decided to listen in for any useful information.


Altaïr approached the two civilians and sat on the nearby bench, eavesdropping on their conversation.

  • Civilian 1: He's a coward! If it wasn't for the money, I'd be long gone!
  • Civilian 2: You're either stupid or blind. Maybe it's both.
  • Civilian 1: How can you say that!?
  • Civilian 2: You didn't see what happened.
  • Civilian 1: I saw well enough! Our caravan was attacked, and the first thing he did was flee!
  • Civilian 2: No, he didn't run.
  • Civilian 1: What are you talking about?
  • Civilian 2: Do you forget what became of the men who attacked us?
  • Civilian 1: Felled by our archers, thanks be to God!
  • Civilian 2: Not our archers. Him, alone.
  • Civilian 1: So you're saying... He saved us?
  • Civilian 2: Yes, he headed for higher ground, and used his bow to kill them.
  • Civilian 1: I... I had no idea.
  • Civilian 2: The man's a master archer. You'd do well to remember that.


Altaïr learned that Talal favored a bow, and would try to shoot his enemies.
