During the 10th century, the group that would become the Assassins moved to keep expanding Templar influence out of Scandinavia. To that end, Thorvald Hjaltason devised a plan to fend off the forces of Styrbjörn the Strong advancing alongside the Order-backed Harald Bluetooth.[3]

Thorvald and his mentor Torgny the Lawspeaker met with Assassin ally and king of Sweden Eric the Victorious for assistance to carry out the scheme.
