Maxime Gorm (died 15 November 2017) was a former member of the Assassin Brotherhood who joined the Templar Order after being brainwashed by Warren Vidic and became Daniel Cross' war dog during the Great Purge. Gorm was the son of Julia Gorm, a rogue Assassin and former member of Boris Pash's Bloodstone Unit active during the Vietnam War.
Maxime was born the son of Julia Gorm, an Assassin who was a member of Boris Pash's Bloodstone Unit during the Vietnam War. Raised an Assassin, Maxime was later kidnapped by Warren Vidic, the Director of the Animus Project at Abstergo Industries and a member of the Templars. Maxime was brainwashed and, like Daniel Cross, became a Templar agent. By 2000, he became a high ranking Templar commander, responsible for carrying out attacks on Assassin facilities. On 6 December, Maxime led the Templars on an attack on an Assassin training camp in Kyushu, Japan. This attack saw the killing of numerous Assassins, including the camp's head, Yuri.
Sometime later, Maxime was stationed at the Abstergo Foundation Rehabilitation Center in Madrid, Spain, working alongside scientists Alice and Thomas Adler. After the destruction of the facility in 2016 by Callum Lynch, Maxime was later kidnapped by the Adlers, who held him captive in their home in Switzerland and subjected him to Animus experimentation to have him explore the memories of his grandfather, Eddie Gorm.
