Born in Constantinople, Murat was signed up by his parents for the imperial army at age 11, in hopes of a better life. In a few years, Murat had become a respected leader in the Janissary army and was consequently recruited by General, and Mentor, Ishak Pasha for his personal guard.
After using Murat as a bodyguard for sometime, Ishak Pasha introduced the Janissary to the Ottoman Brotherhood of Assassins as a promising recruit. Murat distinguished himself both during his Assassin missions and his Jannisary duties, and soon became part of all the teams constituted by Ishak Pasha. At some point, Murat met Aleksei Zima, an Orthodox priest and a disillusioned member of the Templar Order, whom Murat convinced to join the Brotherhood and become their informator within the Byzantine Templars' ranks.
Following the death of his Grand Vizier and recognizing Murat's unbreakable will, the Sultan rewarded him with the armor of Ishak Pasha, which some believed held magical powers. Murat hid the armor in a tomb underneath the Hagia Sofia, and renovated the Great Chain to protect the city.
