Saint Peter (c. 1 CE – 67 CE), born Shimon and later known as Simon Peter, was a leader of the early Roman Catholic Church, and was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. He was featured prominently in the New Testament Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles.


At some point in time, Peter came into possession of a Staff of Eden, which he used to become the first leader of the Christian religion and the first Pope of the Roman Catholic religion.[1]

Peter was later crucified upside down in the Circus of Nero in Rome around the year 67 CE. St. Peter's Basilica was built over the site to commemorate him.[2]


In 2012, Peter was one of many historical people included in the Glyph puzzles the late Assassin Clay Kaczmarek had left behind in the Animus as messages for his successor Desmond Miles to decipher. Desmond later did in September of that year.[3] Desmond solved this puzzle, which was part of a set titled "Instruments of Power" where Peter was included in the list of historical individuals revealed by Clay to have wielded a Staff of Eden.[1] In the same year, he was included in a mnemonic set in Abstergo Industries' Project Legacy.[4]

Behind the scenes

In Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy, Peter was one of the four martyred Christian saints represented in the Martyrs mnemonic set. The artwork for this set's mnemonics alluded to each saint's manner of martyrdom, with Peter's being depicted as an inverted cross.[4]
