Rodrigo de Mendoza was an Assassin of the Spanish Brotherhood during the Spanish Inquisition.


Born during the Renaissance, Rodrigo de Mendoza was merchant-turned-mercenary captain. Stealing from foreign ships and unloading their cargo under the guise of good business, Rodrigo and his crew became rich and notorious.[1]

Unfortunately, Rodrigo's decadence and wealth caught the attention of the Inquisition, who demanded massive tithings from him. Unwilling to share his riches, Torquemada branded Rodrigo and his crew heretics and shut down his operation.[1]

After sacrificing his entire secret fortune as penance to the Inquisition to avoid a harsher sentence, Rodrigo and his crew joined forces with the Brotherhood, hoping to get their revenge.[1]
