A metal is a material which is malleable, ductile, and conducts electricity and heat well. This material may be a chemical element, like iron, or an alloy like bronze or steel which are smelted from the combination of other metals. Cooled metals tend to be quite resilient, and these properties make many of them ideal for use in the construction of structures, tools, weapons, armor, and other equipment.
Humans, as well as the Isu before them, have mined and smelted metals throughout their history. Beginning with "pure" metals like iron, gold, and copper, and leading to alloys like steel and bronze, the refinements and uses seem to be endless.
Behind the scenes
Various metals are used as a crafting materials throughout the Assassin's Creed-series, but in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed: Rogue, and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate the material used to craft and upgrade is only referred to as 'metal'.
