The Egyptian Brotherhood of Assassins, also known as the Hidden Ones during its early years, is the guild of Assassins located in Egypt. It is the oldest organized Assassin branch, having been co-founded by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa and his wife Aya of Alexandria in 47 BCE to fight the Order of the Ancients.

After the Ancients killed their son Khemu, the couple allied with Queen Cleopatra and the Roman Republic's consul Gaius Julius Caesar to eliminate the Order. When the two leaders eventually betrayed them for the Order, Bayek and Aya founded a secret brotherhood with the allies they had made during their journey. Bayek killed the Ancients' leader Flavius Metellus and recovered an Apple of Eden in his possession, while Aya renamed herself "Amunet" and founded another branch in Rome to assassinate Caesar.

During their early years with Bayek as their Mentor, the Hidden Ones resisted the Order's presence in the Sinai region. In 30 BCE, when the Ancients' leader and future Roman emperor Octavian conquered Egypt, Amunet convinced Cleopatra to commit suicide and took custody of her son Caesarion, who joined the Hidden Ones. In Alexandria, the Brotherhood held their last synod to establish the Creed before formally retreating to the shadows to fight the Ancients.

Throughout the centuries, as Egypt was ruled by the Roman Empire and the Umayyad and Abbasid Caliphates, the Hidden Ones remained active. In 870 CE, they worked with their Frankish bretren to eliminate the Snake-Eaters, a branch of the Ancients who controlled the Silk Road. In the 11th century, like the rest of the Brotherhood, the Egyptian Hidden Ones were reformed as the Assassins and continued to operate during Egypt's rule by the Ayyubid dynasty, the Mamluk Sultanate, and both the Ottoman and British Empires.

In 1794, the French Assassin Arno Dorian entrusted the Egyptian Assassins' Mentor Al Mualim with an Apple of Eden to protect it from the general Napoleon Bonaparte. Unfortunately, the Brotherhood's efforts proved futile, as Bonaparte recovered the artifact during his campaign in Egypt and Syria four years later. In 1869, the Egyptian Assassins prevented the Templar bombing of the Khedivial Opera House but failed to recover the Ankh from the Austrian Templar Art Hennighan.

History[]

Ptolemaic Egypt[]

Precursors[]

During the 2nd century BCE, a group that served as the precursors to the Assassin Brotherhood seemingly operated in Egypt, as the Rosetta Stone, issued in 196 BCE, contained sensitive information concerning the Assassins.[6]

Foundation as the Hidden Ones[]

Aya: "When we assassinate, we assassinate only those who deserve it. The few sick souls who try to control us... but they will never know who we are. Cold, calculated poets of the kill."
Bayek: "I am fine with this. I am not a father anymore. I am not a husband. I am not a Medjay. I am a Hidden One."
—Bayek and Aya during the inception of their brotherhood, 47 BCE.[src]-[m]

In 49 BCE, the Order of the Ancients was manipulating the young Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII to take control of Egypt. That same year, their leader, Flavius Metellus, and four other Ancients went to Siwa to access an Isu vault under the Temple of Amun. They kidnapped the last Medjay, Bayek, and his son Khemu to force him to use an Apple of Eden to open the vault's door. As Bayek resisted and attempted to overpower Flavius, he accidentally stabbed and killed Khemu. Left for dead by the Ancients, Bayek and his wife Aya started to hunt down the Ancients to avenge their son's death.[7]

ACO The Heron Assassination 01

Bayek about to assassinate Rudjek

Over the following months, the couple worked separately to track the Order members throughout Egypt. While Bayek went to the Saqqara Nome to kill the Ancient Rudjek, Aya travelled to Alexandria and allied with Apollodorus, a follower of Queen Cleopatra who was engaged in a civil war against her brother Ptolemy and the Ancients.[8][9] During his journey, Bayek met the huntress Tahira, who helped him for a time in his mission.[10]

As Aya entered the service of Cleopatra, the Queen gave to Aya her ancestor's Hidden Blade,[9] which had been used to assassinate King Xerxes I of Persia four centuries prior.[11] Later, Aya killed the Ancients Actaeon and Ktesos but in retaliation began to be hunted down by the Phylakitai Gennadios. With the help of her cousin Phanos the Younger, Aya took refuge in a hideout under the Library of Alexandria, where she awaited Bayek's arrival.[9]

After Bayek killed the Ancient Medunamun in Siwa and took possession of the Order's Apple,[7] he travelled to Alexandria and found Aya's hideout with Phanos' help. As the couple were reunited, Bayek entrusted the Apple to Aya and she in turn gave him the Hidden Blade gifted to her by Cleopatra.[9] Bayek went on to use the blade to kill both Gennadios[12] and the Ancient Eudoros, though during the latter's assassination the Medjay accidentally cut off his left ring finger with the blade.[13]

Bayek and Aya meeting with Cleopatra and her allies to discuss the Order of the Ancients

Later, Bayek and Aya had a meeting with Cleopatra arranged by Apollodorus, who explained to them the true nature of the Order and their plans for Egypt. Bayek was elevated to Medjay of all Egypt by the Queen and began to track the remaining Ancients with the help of Apollodorus' spy network,[14] while Aya took to the sea with the captain Phoxidas to secure an alliance with the Roman consul Pompey.[15]

During his journey, Bayek tracked the Ancient known as the Scarab who oppressed the population of the Nile Delta. The Medjay allied with Taharqa, the protector of the Letopolis, and helped him fight off a group of thugs known as the Hungry Great Ones.[16] When Bayek was later poisoned during dinner with Taharqa and his family, he understood that Taharq was the Scarab. After surviving his trap, the Medjay assassinated Taharqa before the eyes of his son Kawab.[17]

In Giza, the Ancient Khaliset made human sacrifices in an Isu complex under the Great Pyramid in vain attempts to resurrect her late daughter, Eshe. Bayek tracked down his target and killed her in a duel.[18]

In Memphis, Bayek was reunited with Aya and worked alongside her to investigate a curse plaguing the city and the family of the High Priest Pasherenptah. The couple discovered the "curse" to be machinations of Hetepi, a priest serving under Pasherenptah and a secret member of the Order, who hoped to sabotage Cleopatra's arrival in the city during the Festival of Apis. Bayek assassinated Hetepi, allowing the festival to commence without further incidents.[19]

Origins Quest17TheCrocodile'sJaws Part15

Bayek and Kensa arguing

In the Faiyum Oasis, Bayek allied with Hotephres to fight the oppression of the Ancient known as the Crocodile. After Hotephres' daughter Shadya was kidnapped by the gladiator brothers Diovicos and Viridovix and then killed by the Crocodile, Bayek infiltrated the Krokodilopolis Arena as a gladiator to discover the identity of the Ancient.[20] There, he met his old friend Kensa, who had become a gladiator, and teamed up with her to defeat the gladiator brothers and uncover the Crocodile's identity. Following their defeat, the brothers revealed the Ancient to be the Nomarch Berenike and Bayek assassinated her. However, Kensa was upset to discover that the Medjay had used her, souring their friendship.[21]

While Aya and Phoxidas fought on the sea the Gabiniani led by the Ancient Lucius Septimius, Bayek went to Heraklion to report to Cleopatra.[22] On the road, he met Tahira and helped her to fight Roman soldiers who captured animals for circus games.[10][23]

Arriving in Heraklion in September 48 BCE, Bayek and Aya prevented the Order's assassination of Cleopatra and killed the Gabiniani Venator. They also tried to protect Pompey, who was targeted by the Order due to his alliance with Cleopatra, but arrived too late.[24] As the last hope for Cleopatra was to ally with Pompey's rival Julius Caesar, Aya, Bayek and Phoxidas escorted the Queen to Alexandria by sea. Attacked by Ptolemy's fleet, the couple and the Queen fled to the city while Phoxidas stayed to fight the fleet.[25]

ACO Aya Blade of the Goddess 31

In Alexandria, Apollodorus, Aya, and Bayek infiltrated the palace with Cleopatra in a rug. There, the Queen secured an alliance with Caesar while Aya, Bayek and Apollodorus discussed the remaining Ancients they knew of: Septimius and Ptolemy's regent Pothinus. Aya also entrusted the Apple of Eden to Apollodorus, and later worked with Bayek to open the tomb of Alexander the Great at the request of Cleopatra, who sought to impress Caesar.[25]

In February 47 BCE, the Ancients convinced Ptolemy to besiege Alexandria in retaliation for Caesar's decision to ally with Cleopatra. While Aya travelled to the Lighthouse of Alexandria to light a signal and let Caesar's fleet know to prepare for an attack,[25] Bayek escorted the consul out of the city. Later, during the Battle of the Nile, Bayek killed Pothinus and defeated Septimius, though he was stopped from executing the Ancient by Caesar. Meanwhile, Aya was tasked with assassinating Ptolemy, but the pharaoh drowned after his boat was attacked by crocodiles while he attempted to flee across the Nile.[26]

ACO The Aftermath 11

Bayek, Aya and their allies forming their brotherhood

After Cleopatra ascended the throne of Egypt as Pharaoh, she and Caesar cut ties with Bayek and Aya and allied with the Ancients, who presented Cleopatra with Alexander the Great's Staff.[26] Angered by Cleopatra's betrayal and realizing their mistake in supporting her, Bayek and Aya gathered their allies Phanos, Pasherenptah, Tahira and Phoxidas to form a brotherhood to counter the Order and defend the free will of the common people.[27]

Soon after, Aya realized that the Order had shown a strong interest in Alexander's tomb and decided to investigate alongside Bayek. Finding a mortally wounded Apollodorus, he informed them that Caesar's lieutenant Flavius Metellus was the leader of the Order and had taken the Apple of Eden.[28]

Following Flavius and Septimius' trail back to Siwa, Bayek and Aya discovered that the two Ancients had used the Apple and Alexander's Staff to open the Vault, where they found a holographic map of the world. Deciding to track down the Ancients, Bayek followed Flavius to Cyrenaica while Aya headed to Alexandria to find Septimius. Confronting Flavius in the Temple of Mars, the Medjay killed him, avenging Khemu's death at last, and took back the Apple.[28]

ACO Last of the Medjay 13

Bayek and Aya parting ways

In Alexandria, Aya was unable to kill Septimius as the Ancient had fled to Rome with the Staff. She then decided to establish a new brotherhood in Rome to fight the Order's growing influence, and recruited Roman senators Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus, who opposed Caesar, to her and Bayek's cause. When Bayek returned to Alexandria, he hid away the Apple and met with Aya to discuss the future of their brotherhood. Ultimately, the couple agreed to separate and swore to protect the world from the shadows, naming their brotherhood the Hidden Ones.[29]

Over the following years, Bayek built up the Egyptaing Brotherhood as its Mentor, establishing a bureau in Memphis and recruiting new members. The Hidden Blade became the iconic weapon of the Hidden Ones, who used stealth and parkour during their operations. The members amputated their left ring finger like Bayek to prove their faith in his cause.[30]

Early activities[]

One of the first known actions of the newly-formed Egyptian Hidden Ones was their opposition of the Sect of the Ibis Reborn, a cult led by the priest Menkhtu, a former follower of the late Medunamun. After Menkhtu failed to access the Isu complex underneath the Great Pyramid of Giza, he and all of his followers were killed by the Hidden Ones, putting an end to their plans to conquer Egypt.[31]

The Hidden Ones also targeted Habibah, a member of the Order of the Ancients who worked as a doctor in Memphis and possessed one half of an Isu dagger once wielded by the Isu Vejovis. After making several failed attempts on her life, Habibah relocated to the Temple of Philae, where she was eventually killed by the Hidden One Khepri, who was secretly a Sage of Vejovis. Recovering the dagger, Khepri was subsequently sent to Mesopotamia to establish a bureau and protect the artifact.[32]

Expansion to the Sinai[]

Bayek: "The Hidden Ones will pass onto Petra and towards Judea. And forever. The Creed must live beyond any one."
Amunet: "No one shall be bigger than the greater group. When I return to Rome I will not speak of heroes, I will speak of discipline and perseverance."
Bayek: "Amunet is a Mentor to this brotherhood. Our will never rests..."
Amunet: "...and our blades shall never tire."
—Bayek and Amunet addressing their apprentices, 38 BCE.[src]-[m]
ACO HO Screenshot - Tahira Bayek Gamilat

Bayek with Tahira and Gamilat

By 38 BCE, the Egyptian Brotherhood had a bureau in the Sinai and had allied with the rebel leader Gamilat to fight Roman occupation of the peninsula. After two Hidden Ones were killed in a battle with the Romans, the bureau leader Tahira sent a letter to Bayek requesting his aid.[33] Following his arrival in the Sinai, Bayek assassinated the three lieutenants of the Roman general Rufio, all of whom were members of the Order of the Ancients.[34][35][36]

In retaliation, the Romans attacked the Sinai bureau, capturing Bayek, Tahira and another Hidden One, Kashta. Bayek was saved from crucifixion by a recently-arrived Aya, now known as "Amunet", who informed him that the Sinai branch of the Brotherhood had been too "loud", to the point she had heard tales of them in Rome, and that there may be a traitor among them.[37]

ACO THO No Chains Too Thick 09

Bayek and Amunet preparing to rescue Tahira and Kashta

Working together, Bayek and Amunet saved Tahira and Kashta, though the former succumbed to the injuries she had received shortly after.[37] When Rufio's fleet arrived in the Sinai in response to the Hidden Ones and the rebels' actions, Bayek and Amunet prevented the Romans from burning down a village, before the former infiltrated Rufio's ship and assassinated him. In his final moments, the general revealed that he too was a member of the Order and claimed that, because of their ideology, the Ancients were eternal.[38]

Later, Amunet informed Bayek of Gamilat's tactic to recruit new members to his rebellion by allowing innocent villagers to die to inspire others to fight against the Romans. When Bayek confronted Gamilat, the latter tried to defend his actions as a necessary evil, forcing the Mentor to slay him in combat. As he lay dying, Gamilat realized the error of his ways and admitted that Bayek had been right to kill him, to which the Mentor swore that from that day on, no one Hidden One would "rise a sword against an innocent".[39]

ACO THO Hidden Ones Gathering

Bayek and Amunet addressing the Hidden Ones

Gamilat's death and subsequent reverence as a hero caused the Sinai's population to forget about the Hidden Ones, allowing them to operate in the shadows once more. After establishing a new bureau in the mountains of the Arsinoe Nome, Bayek and Amunet gave a speech before their apprentices, declaring that their ideals and thus, the Brotherhood, must outlive any of them. After the two created the first tenet of their new Creed, the prohibition of harming innocent lives, they parted ways, with Amunet returning to Rome while Bayek continued to lead the Egyptian Brotherhood and expand its influence towards Petra, Judea and beyond.[39]

Assassination of Cleopatra[]

"Cleopatra, my former friend. Give up this battle. Spare our beloved Egypt further suffering."
―Amunet encouraging Cleopatra to take her life, 30 BCE.[src]-[m]

On 12 August 30 BCE, towards the end of the last war of the Roman Republic, Amunet confronted Cleopatra one last time in Alexandria.[40] It had been thirteen years since Amunet had decided to spare Cleopatra's life after killing Caesar,[41] but neither woman had forgotten that encounter.[40]

ACO Aya Cleopatra poison

Amunet giving Cleopatra the poison

Amunet implored her former ally to resign to Octavian's imminent victory as his forces marched into the city, which the Pharaoh agreed to on the condition that her son Caesarion be taken in by the Hidden Ones. Amunet then handed her poison by which to commit suicide and left with Cesarion. Once Cleopatra was certain her son was safe, she consumed the poison and died;[40] later Assassins would eventually romanticize this with the legend that the queen had been assassinated with a venomous asp.[42]

Final Synod[]

"Work in silence from this day forward. Speak not your name, nor the names of your family and friends. For to do so would be a deadly compromise and a useless gesture. Seek not recognition, nor glory, nor compensation for your duty. Seek only the light, however dimly it may flicker upon the horizon... We are Hidden Ones, all of us, forever together in our solitude. May it ever be so."
―Amunet addressing the Hidden Ones at the synod in Alexandria.[src]-[m]

Later that year, the Hidden Ones held their final synod in Alexandria, which was presided over by Amunet. It was attended by the Master Assassin Hakor and several acolytes, including Magas. During the synod, Amunet was asked a number of questions by Magas regarding the Creed and its ironies, prompting an open discussion about it in front of all assembled. After answering his questions, Amunet concluded the final Synod, emphasizing that there would not be another. Amunet then declared that the Hidden Ones were to formally retreat into the shadows to continue their mission.[3]

Later on, Magas approached a fellow acolyte in the gardens outside the tomb of Alexander the Great,[43] and revealed Amunet's identity to them, as she was regarded as a legendary figure by the younger initiates. The acolyte would record both the synod and their subsequent meeting with Magas in a document that would be known as the Magas Codex.[44] Bayek later learned of the Codex's existence and sought to destroy it so that Amunet's identity would remain a secret, but would ultimately not succeed.[45]

Middle Ages[]

Mission on the Silk Road[]

In 870 CE, the Egyptian Brotherhood received a letter from Basim Ibn Ishaq, the leader of the Hidden Ones in Constantinople, asking for support as he discovered that the Order of the Ancients was active in Antioch. The Hidden Ones from Alexandria, Jessamyn, Kalim, Rashid and Sihem, went to Antioch and met Basim and his apprentice Hytham in the bureau outside the city. Basim informed them that the Snake-Eaters, a group who protected the merchants on the Silk Road, began to extort money and attack the civilians who did not pay for their protection. As they eliminated the Hidden Ones in the city, Basim suspected a link with the Ancients. The Egyptians Hidden Ones then investigated in the city.[46]

During their investigation, the Egyptians Hidden Ones met their Frankish brethren from Chinon Oisel and Matthias who also answered to Basim's letter. Together, they met Basim in the bureau who explained the situation for the two Franks. Basim decided to send the Egyptian and the Frankish Hidden Ones on the Silk Road to eliminate the Snake-Eaters while he returned to Constantinople with Hytham.[46]

Leaving Antioch, the Hidden Ones were transported by Kazem, a caravanner's leader. During their travel, the Egyptian Hidden Ones shared their stories and skills with their Frankish brothers. After three months, the group arrived in a small village with a citadel control by the Snake-Eaters and their leader Dunya. The group decided to enter in the citadel, the Egyptians Hidden Ones covering Oisel and Matthias who confronted Dunya. Outnumbered, the Egyptian Hidden Ones fled the citadel, believing that the two Franks were killed. Taking documents with them, the Hidden Ones decided to resume their mission by attacking the Snake-Eaters headquarters in Chang'an.[46]

On the road to China, the Hidden Ones were joined by a wounded Oisel who crossed the desert after his encounter with Dunya. The five Hidden Ones arrived in Chang'an and planned the assassination of Dunya. After the death of their target and the dissolution of the Snake-Eaters, Jessamyn and Oisel founded a bureau in Chang'an, recruiting members in the population. After few months, Jessamyn returned to Alexandria while Oisel went back to Francia.[46]

Aiding the Mamluks[]

EgyptAssassin

The Egyptian Assassin killing a Templar knight

In the early 13th century, the Egyptian Assassins acquired the Scepter of Aset from a merchant, who had purchased it from Italian fishermen that had discovered it after it was lost in a Roman shipwreck during Antiquity. In 1250, after the Mamluks rose up against the reigning Ayyubid dynasty, the Brotherhood, who had formed an alliance with the Mamluks, tasked an unidentified Egyptian Assassin with delivering the Scepter to them. However, while on his way to deliver the artifact in Cairo, the Assassin was attacked by Templar knights.[47]

Despite being injured, the Assassin managed to kill the Templar knights and successfully delivered the Scepter of Aset to the Mamluks, allowing them to succeed in their slave revolt against the rule of their Ayyubid overlords and effectively laying the foundation for the Bahri dynasty.[47]

In 1257, Darim Ibn-La'Ahad, son of the Mentor of the Levantine Brotherhood, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, moved to Alexandria after the Levantine Assassins were disbanded.[48] Darim joined the widow of his deceased brother and her children,[49] which led to their bloodline integrating into the Egyptian Assassins.[48] Darim also notably gave an Apple of Eden to the first Sultan of the Bahri dynasty, further strengthening his power.[47]

Search for the Scepter of Aset[]

AC5EC-Numa Templars

Numa fighting Templars in Karnak

In 1340, after the Scepter of Aset had remained in the possession of the Mamluks Sultans for nearly a century, the Egyptian Templars stole it from the Sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad and the Assassins entrusted Numa Al'Khamsin, better known as "El Cakr", and his apprentice Ali Al-Ghraib with the task to find the artifact. One year later, Numa and Ali managed to track down the Templars to their hideout in Karnak.[50]

Arriving at night near the Temple of Amun, the two walked across a village, when Ali noticed a man wearing a dagger with the Templar cross on it. After telling this to his master, Ali started a fire as a distraction, so that Numa was able to look for the Scepter of Aset unnoticed.[50]

However, the distraction was not effective and Numa became surrounded by Templars. While the Assassin engaged in battle with his enemies, Ali stole the Scepter from the Templars. Numa and his apprentice then fled from Karnak, taking the artifact with them.[50]

Losing the artifact[]

Two days later, El Cakr arrived at the Sultan’s palace in Cairo. Although the Sultan’s Emirs expected Numa to hand over the artifact, the Assassin did not trust the Emirs and told them the artifact would remain in Assassin hands until a dignified successor to the throne would be presented. Interpreting Numa’s words as an insult, the Emirs locked him up in a prison cell.[50]

NumaBusted

Numa being imprisoned

While in the cell, Numa met a woman named Leila, a Templar agent and former servant of Al-Nasir Muhammad, whom she had seduced and killed. After convincing Numa that she was not a true believer of the Templar cause and had merely used them in order to kill the sultan, the two escaped and headed for a safe house that Leila had arranged in the city in order to lay low after the murder of the Sultan. There, she seduced Numa into a sexual encounter.[51]

While Numa was in prison, Ali was captured by the Templars at the Temple of Edfu and was tortured by them, which resulted in them breaking his wrist. Eventually he cracked, agreeing to help them eliminate his master in exchange for his life.[51]

After Numa arrived at Edfu Temple and noticed Ali's bandaged wrist, the Templars surrounded him and Ali. One of them came forward and explained that the Scepter was no longer the only priority of the Order, revealing that Numa was such a nuisance that his death was now a new priority. Lowering her hood, the Templar revealed herself to be Leila and she told El Cakr that she felt no hate towards him but had to follow orders before she began dueling with him.[51]

AliShocked

Ali finding Numa's body

Perfectly trained, Leila revealed that everything she had told Numa about her commitment to the Templars was a lie before putting a dagger into his heart, instantly killing the Assassin before the eyes of his distraught apprentice. Afterwards, she kept her promise to spare Ali and allowed the shaken Assassin apprentice to leave.[51]

However, Ali, even though he had betrayed his master, was still loyal to the Brotherhood and threw the Scepter into a well near Edfu with the intent to contact the Brotherhood and come back later; unfortunately, he died just a few weeks later of food poisoning, from eating tainted meat. Leila, who had discovered Ali's ruse, managed to briefly find the artifact in the well, only to suffer a head injury while climbing up with it, becoming amnesiac. As a result, the Scepter remained in the well where it would eventually become forgotten.[51]

Renaissance[]

By 1511, the Egyptian Assassins were under the leadership of their Mentor Iskender, a descendant of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. He was captured to be executed that year, but was saved by Ottoman Assassins sent from Constantinople by the Mentor of the Italian Brotherhood, Ezio Auditore.[48]

Ottoman Egypt[]

Losing the Apple of Eden[]

ACU Sphere of Eden 2

Arno placing the Apple in a box to be delivered to Al Mualim

By 1794, the Egyptian Assassins were led by an individual known as Al Mualim, who was based in Cairo. Arno Dorian sent one of his fellow Parisian Assassins to the city with the Apple of Eden he had taken from the Head of Saint Denis to keep it safe.[4]

However, the Brotherhood would ultimately fail to protect the Apple for long, as in 1798, Napoleon Bonaparte led a successful military campaign in Egypt and acquired the artifact, which greatly aided him in his rise to power following his return to France.[52]

19th century[]

In 1869, the British Assassin Pierrette Arnaud joined her Egyptian brothers Safiya El-Nadi and Gamal Sabry on a mission to find American Templar Albert Hawkins at the Khedivial Opera House in Cairo,[53] where Khedive Ismail Pasha was hosting an event for his guests, including Empress Eugénie de Montijo. Pierrette herself was invited and goes under the guise as a guest while searching for Hawkins. Spotting her target, she followed him into the auditorium and killed him swiftly. However, she found his cane, which contained an explosive. Temporarily hiding his body, she ran with the cane and disposed of it carefully outside.[54]

With Gamal and Safiya, Pierrette took Hawkins' body from the opera house and informed Egyptian Assassin Council member Amira Benyamina of the mission's success. Amira soon assigned them to investigate Hawkins' railway to its very end.[55] While the three Assassins journeyed to the end, they were surprised to meet Pierrette's old mentor Simeon Price. Conferring with them, Price detailed that a group of Templars led by Armen Kazan were set up at a cave close to the railroad and how they may have the Ankh with them. Finding a secret entrance, they ventured into the cave to find the Templars.[56]

However, they soon became separated after a brief argument, which led Pierrette to leave the other three Assassins behind her.[57] By herself, Pierrette found the Templar excavation crew and Armen placing the Ankh on a slab. Preparing herself, she attacked the Templars, killing Armen and most of the Templars. However, she became injured and later restrained by her former captor Art Hennighan.[58]

There, Pierrette witnessed the Ankh emit a light beam to awaken one of the cave's horse pictures back to life.[58] At the same time, her fellow Assassins came to her rescue while the horse ran past all of them. While Safiya came to Pierrette's aid, Gamal and Simeon chased Hennighan, who took the Ankh and the horse, but failed to catch him.[59]

Afterwards, Egyptian Assassin Council member Mustafa Hussein relieved Gamal and Simeon from their post from the abandoned cave[59] while they regrouped with Safiya, Pierrette, and Amira back at Gamal and Safiya's home. There, Amira congratulated them on Kazan's death but assigned Simeon and Pierrette to stop Hennighan and recover the Ankh. However, before she could join, Pierrette received news about the exhumation of Elizabeth Siddal and thus Ada Lovelace's notes in her casket.[60]
