Investigate was a visual representation of one of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's genetic memories in the Animus 1.28.


Altaïr traveled to the crusader outpost to learn more about Shalim from the scholars.


Altaïr spoke with one of the scholars.

  • Altaïr: Does it not trouble you, brother, to suffer the sins of such a vile man as Shalim?
  • Scholar: It does, but to oppose him would mean death. The Templars have too much at stake here.
  • Altaïr: You mean the Archive. Can you tell me where it is?
  • Scholar: Hush. We can speak about this later.

The scholar left while Shahar, Shalim's twin brother, addressed the civilians gathered in the outpost. However, Altaïr mistook him for Shalim.

  • Shahar: Men and women of Cyprus! Armand Bouchart sends his blessing, but with a stern provision that all who foment disorder by their support the Resistance will be caught and punished. But those who seek order and harmony, and pay obeisance to the Lord through good work, will enjoy Bouchart's charity! Now, let us work together as brothers to rebuild what hate and anger have torn down!
  • Altaïr: Strange. He's quite charitable this morning. Paying penance for his guilty conscience?

Altaïr approached the scholar with whom he spoke earlier, but before he could reach him, a mysterious figure dropped a lift heavy with stone blocks over the man, crushing him. Altaïr gave chase, but the figure escaped and all he found was a ring. He subsequently headed for the market district to speak with Markos.

  • Markos: Altaïr... back so soon?
  • Altaïr: The Bull's son has a confusing strategy for Cyprus... Abusing the population one day, and giving to charity the next.
  • Markos: That's how the Templars keep us docile.... Building churches and giving to charity.
  • Altaïr: I need to catch Shalim when he's alone.
  • Markos: You might try the harbor. Shalim likes to idle there whenever a ship full of exotic consorts arrives.


Altaïr set out to find Shalim in the harbor as a shipment of consorts was about to arrive.
