"No mercy, men! This is an island of superstitious heathens! Remember, they do not want you here, they do not like you, they do not understand the true meaning of your cause! And they are scheming at every turn to cast you out! So stay on your guard, and trust no one!"
―Fredrick addressing his men during training.[src]

Fredrick, also known as Frederick the Red (died 1191), was the leader of the knights in Limassol and a member of the Templar Order.


As a high commander, Fredrick was tasked with training Templar guards after they arrived in Cyprus. One day in 1191, while training his men in the Limassol Castle courtyard, the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad arrived to assassinate him.

Fredrick eventually perished at Altaïr's hands. Fredrick's death caused Grand Master Armand Bouchart to tighten security, and kill Osman when he questioned Bouchart's actions.

Personality and traits[]

Fredrick was the highest ranking Templar in Limassol, with the exception of Armand Bouchart himself. According to Osman, he was a brutish man, likely referring to his strict and hard personality.

In hopes of bolstering the confidence that Limassol's citizens had in Fredrick, Armand described him as a man who "served God and the people of Cyprus with honor."

Skills and equipment[]

In combat, Fredrick wielded his own personal Lucerne hammer.


  • During Fredrick's speech to the training guards, two additional soldiers can be seen standing behind him. However, they were absent once his speech was finished.
