"We saw the Nephilim there. We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."
―William Miles to his son Desmond, 2012[src]-[m]

The Nephilim are an ancient race related to the Isu, those descended from co-mingling with humans.

Legacy and influence

The stories of the Nephilim influenced the writings of the biblical books of Genesis, Ezekiel, and Numbers.[1] These writings were later studied by the Irish monk Brendan of Clonfert during the 6th century. After a pilgrimage to Seahenge, he pondered on the possibility of the structure's timber being carried by the Nephilim, and he begged his God for further knowledge of the truth.[2]

In December 2012, the Assassin Mentor William Miles quoted 13:33 from the Book of Numbers concerning the Nephilim to his son Desmond after hearing a cryptic message from Juno.[3]
