- "They hit him in the stomach."
- ―Clay Kaczmarek, 2012.
In truth, the secret behind Houdini's tricks was an Apple of Eden, with the assistance of it, he was able to perform his Chinese water cell escape in 1913. However, his Apple was desired by the Templars, and as such they killed him. On 31 October 1926, Houdini was hit in in the stomach and died, they made his death look like an accident.
Details of Houdini's Apple and his death were later collected by the Assassin Clay Kaczmarek in 2012, and hidden in the Animus for his successor, Desmond Miles to find. Which he did in December of that year. Later that month while in the Animus' Black Room, Desmond would also find a few pictures of Houdini, along with other figures in history that were either aided or killed by Abstergo Industries and the Templars.
