Born during the Renaissance, Magdalena was a young and well-known seamstress from Toledo who became a dedicated Assassin. She was renowned for her bright personality and charm, and was a close friend of the blacksmith Bartolomé Ortiz, who hailed from the same district of Toledo as she did.
One night, she was cornered by drunk Inquisition soldiers looking for a good time. Before they could act, she was rescued by the Assassin María, who was in town to handle a mission for the Brotherhood.
After seeing the incredible Assassin in action, Magdalena begged María to train her, her only desire being to also protect the helpless from the injustice the way María had done for her. Liking the girl's spirit, María invited her to join the Brotherhood, where Magdalena trained diligently, hoping to become María's equal.
In 1487, María initiated Magdalena as an Assassin following her taking on Aguilar as her new novice. The two ended their relationship and over time, she learned to adapt her nimble hands, feet, and mind of a seasoned seamstress into a respected disciple of the Brotherhood.
