Eden 2 v

伊述成员正使用伊甸苹果控制人类

伊甸碎片(Piece of Eden) 是由伊述创造的高科技设备,通过植入人类脑中的神经递质网络发挥作用。除了裹尸布这个值得注意的特例以外,绝大多数伊甸碎片被设计出来的主要目的是在精神与物理两方面控制人类的思想、情感和行为。因此它们也成为伊述驱使人类作为奴隶劳动力的主要工具.

千百年来,伊甸碎片的力量一直使人们感到困惑,这足以让人们在漫长的历史当中把它与“魔法”混为一谈。多峇巨灾给伊述带来的灭亡更是加强了这种看法——人类对伊述的记忆逐渐隐没于神话传说当中。由于人类缺少仿制这些设备的专业技术,彼此敌对的人类团体为了各自的目的而寻找着伊甸碎片,为了争夺伊甸碎片进行了不计其数的冲突。其中,圣殿骑士组织对伊甸碎片颇为痴迷。几千年以来,他们投入了大量的人力物力来搜寻并获取这些神器,以求建立“新世界秩序”。

描述编辑

尽管例如伊甸苹果伊甸权杖等大多数伊甸碎片是用于控制人类的工具,但有些伊甸碎片却偏离了这一用途。比如伊甸宝剑就是彻头彻尾的武器,能够发射能量冲击波,再比如裹尸布从一开始就是为了医疗而生,无论多么致命的创伤都可以由它治愈。这些设备的不同功能还可以进一步扩展:许多伊甸碎片能够迫使人的想法屈从于使用者、投射幻象或隐藏使用者的存在。以其它伊甸碎片为能源驱动的先行者之盒,可以将其使用者的记忆传输到他人身上,也可以用来破解伏尼契手稿伊述文字样本。其它的功能对于现代的人类科技来说较为相近,因此显得较为普通,例如全息投影或作为远距离通讯设备的水晶头骨。虽然如此,伊甸碎片对古人来说仍旧是超自然的。

自从伊述文明消亡后,伊甸碎片有时会落入人类手中,被视作来自神话传说事件的圣遗物。由于伊甸碎片大大超越了人类文明的技术水平,所以即使是在现代,伊甸碎片仍能赋予持有者足以影响整个社会的强大力量。对伊甸碎片的使用对人类历史产生了巨大的影响;亚历山大大帝成吉思汗拿破仑·波拿巴圣雄甘地等富有影响力的领袖都受益于他们对伊甸碎片的使用。

在认识到伊甸碎片的重要性后,圣殿骑士组织数世纪以来一直将伊甸碎片作为他们首要目标。他们希望通过利用这些神器来实现对于“新世界秩序”的愿景。作为圣殿骑士宿敌的刺客根据传统主张妥善保管这些神器。因此,圣殿骑士与刺客之间对于伊甸碎片的争夺成为了他们之间数千年战争的一大特征。

历史编辑

伊述纪元编辑

亚当: "夏娃,这装置是什么?"
夏娃: "碰触它,亚当,然后你就知道了。"
―亚当和夏娃检视伊甸苹果时对话道。[来源]-[记忆]

伊甸碎片有着悠久的历史,贯穿人类的历史。在统一战争期间,伊述成员赫菲斯托斯为这场战争创造了伊甸宝剑。他的学徒康苏斯创造了用来治疗士兵的裹尸布[1]后来,康苏斯将自己的意识上传到了这件神器里。伊甸苹果被用来控制人类。人类是法涅斯人类创造计划中作为伊述的奴隶创造出来的新物种。[2]

伊述成员朱诺和她的丈夫艾塔对人类使用了亚特兰蒂斯神器,开展奥林匹斯计划,创造出了一系列杂交怪物。波塞冬知道这件事之后,将这两人驱逐出了亚特兰蒂斯,但朱诺和艾塔仍在秘密地进行这项实验。[2]

Eden 3 v

夏娃手持伊甸苹果

然而,人类和伊述族的通婚杂交导致了混血儿这一种族的产生,这些混血儿能够免疫伊甸碎片的催眠作用。公元前75010年,亚当夏娃这两个混血儿从他们的主人那里盗走了一个伊甸苹果,并逃离了伊甸的囚禁。不久之后,战争爆发,人类开始反抗他们的创造者。[3]

当其他伊述成员全身心地投入与人类的战争时,朱庇特、朱诺和密涅瓦受命寻找一种方法来抵御即将到来的太阳风暴的威胁。他们前往大神殿(现位于纽约州都灵[4]——一个只能用伊甸苹果进入的设施。开启神殿内部的大门则需要另一个名为大神殿钥匙的伊甸碎片。[5]

那时,伊述人已经可以通过作为戒指佩戴在手上的伊甸残片制造小型的磁场。运用类似的技术,他们希望制造一个巨大的磁场来保护地球免遭太阳风暴的破坏。然而,他们缺乏实行这个方法所需的资源,尽管他们尝试制造磁场保护地球的小部分区域,但最终还是失败了。[5]

朱庇特用伊甸苹果控制人类的投影影像

伊述人很快就发现,当足够多的人类在伊甸碎片的奴役下并迫使他们相信某件事时,人们的想法就会变为现实。朱庇特、朱诺和密涅瓦考虑了集中人类想象力拯救地球的可能性。这个尝试也被认为失败了。[5]

作为第三个备选方案,他们将一个伊甸苹果发射进了轨道。当它到位之后,便会发出“让我们安全”的信号。当他们的第一次尝试失败后,他们又发射了十几个苹果。这个举动也失败了,因为他们无法将碎片释放的能量束引导到地球上。[5]

在人类反抗开始的仅仅十年之后,太阳风暴袭击了地球,地球表面化作一片火海,不计其数的人在灾难中丧生,只有约一万名人类和更少的伊述人幸存了下来。[4]残存下来的伊述人被人类当作神祗崇拜;由于知道等待着他们的必然是灭亡,这些伊述人开始反过来帮助人类,指导他们发展自己的文明,试图在人类遭遇另一次灾难之前帮助他们。[6]

很久以前,被称作伊西斯的伊述成员使用伊甸十字架使她的丈夫欧西里斯短暂复活,并在他再次离世之前与其共度良宵。[7]

希腊神话编辑

Jason

伊阿宋找到了裹尸布

许多神话传说和重大事件都与伊甸碎片有着一定联系。在希腊,英雄珀耳修斯使用伊甸宝剑对抗作为奥林匹斯计划产物的扭曲邪灵——它在希腊神话中被称作戈耳贡美杜莎[8]赫拉克勒斯十二大功之一就是取回了伊甸苹果,而伊阿宋和他的阿尔戈号诸勇士的主要任务就是找到一件被称作“金羊毛”的伊甸裹尸布。[9]神话中的英雄中曾有些人与奥林匹斯计划所缔造的杂交怪物战斗过,如国王忒修斯杀死了弥诺陶洛斯奥德修斯弄瞎了独眼巨人俄狄浦斯则智胜斯芬克斯[8]特洛伊战争也是由伊甸苹果引起的。[10]

圣经神话编辑

在希伯来圣经中,许多人用伊甸碎片创造了奇迹。该隐为了得到一枚伊甸苹果而谋杀了他的弟弟亚伯,并将那枚伊甸苹果从亚伯的手里夺了过来。[11]雅各之子约瑟拥有一件伊甸裹尸布;先知摩西使用伊甸权杖创造出了他分开又合起红海的幻象;大卫王在他与歌利亚大战时使用了伊甸裹尸布。[9]

北欧神话编辑

ACII-Idun and the Apples

伊登与伊甸苹果

在北欧神话中,女神伊登守护着一种能让人永葆青春的苹果。实际上,那些苹果就是伊甸苹果。[12]主神奥丁将一把伊甸宝剑刺入了一棵名为“子嗣之柱”的树中,这把剑后来被勇士西格蒙德拔出。[13]

ACO CotP Nefertiti Aten

纳芙蒂蒂王后高举伊甸苹果

公元前14世纪,法老阿蒙霍特普四世得到了一个伊甸苹果。他相信这就是阿顿神本身, 因此自称为阿肯那顿,并同他的妻子纳芙蒂蒂将一种新的一神论宗教引入埃及[14] 他去世后,其子斯门卡瑞创建了以探寻并利用伊甸碎片为目标的组织——上古维序者[15]斯门卡瑞去世后,他的兄弟图坦卡蒙恢复了埃及传统的多神教体系,并把苹果交给了卡纳克阿蒙主祭。[14]

公元前8世纪末期,埃及法老沙巴塔卡拥有一根伊甸权杖。[13]

古典希腊编辑

Hermes Trismegistus

赫尔墨斯与他的权杖

公元前6世纪,希腊学者毕达哥拉斯接触到了伊述成员赫尔墨斯·特利斯墨吉斯忒斯,赫尔墨斯将他的权杖赠予了毕达哥拉斯,赋予了他永生的能力。他的门徒撒拉克丝的居鲁士遇见了伊述成员阿佛洛狄忒,并得到了一个伊甸苹果,他用这个苹果赢得了与阿塔兰忒的赛跑并娶她为妻。[16]

后来,毕达哥拉斯建立了赫尔墨斯神教——一个专注于赫尔墨斯·特利斯墨吉斯忒斯教义的组织。一个由阿伽门农领导的赫尔墨斯主义者派别分裂了出来并组成了秩序神教。在德尔菲圣殿之下,他们发现了一个角锥状的伊甸碎片,可以用来共享记忆并预知未来。通过它的力量,神教强迫皮提亚作为他们的傀儡,并为了他们自己的利益在整个希腊挑起争端。[8]

在波斯国王薛西斯一世大举入侵希腊时,斯巴达国王列奥尼达斯一世手持一柄伊述长矛,带领斯巴达人投入了抵御波斯人的战争。公元前480年,列奥尼达斯在温泉关战役进行他的最后一战时,长矛的柄断裂了,但矛头被重新找到并给予了他的女儿密里涅 ,密里涅又传给了她的女儿卡珊德拉。卡珊德拉在伯罗奔尼撒战争最激烈时成长为了一名传奇 “雇佣兵(misthios)”她的整个军旅冒险生涯都使用着列奥尼达斯之矛。相反地, 达摩克利斯之剑(一把伊甸之剑)落入了她同母异父的弟弟阿利克西欧斯手中,他幼年被秩序神教诱拐,重新命名为“德谟斯”并被他们灌输其理念,成为了神教最强大的战士[8]

利用列奥尼达斯之矛,卡珊德拉不断战斗,最终摧毁了秩序神教,打败了阿利克西欧斯并破坏了角锥体。她也通过消灭奥林匹斯计划中诞生的杂交怪物重新取得了亚特兰蒂斯神器并用其封印了亚特兰蒂斯。在那之后,伊述成员阿勒忒娅向她的父亲毕达哥拉斯传达了信息,要求他将赫尔墨斯·特利斯墨吉斯忒斯的权杖交给卡珊德拉。卡珊德拉获得了永生,并通过阿勒忒娅的模拟学会了如何使用权杖。当矛的力量逐渐消失后,卡珊德拉将其赠予了她的朋友希罗多德,后者最终将矛作为陪葬品带入墓中。[8]

希腊化时代编辑

公元前4世纪,上古维序者将伊甸三叉戟托付给亚历山大大帝,这柄三叉戟的三个戟尖有着操控不同情感的力量,分别是:信仰、恐惧与忠诚。通过这柄三叉戟和他的一根伊甸权杖,亚历山大征服了埃及和波斯[17]在他被伊尔塔尼刺杀后,亚历山大大帝和他的权杖被一同埋葬在他位于亚历山大陵墓中,而三个戟尖则被分给了他的将军们。[15]托勒密一世得到了信仰戟尖,塞琉古一世得到了恐惧戟尖,而马其顿人民得到了忠诚戟尖。[17]

公元前49年,上古维序者获得了一个伊甸苹果。由昔兰尼加总督弗拉维乌斯·梅特鲁斯带领的一队人马前往了一个偏远的埃及村庄锡瓦并且绑架了守护者巴耶克和他的儿子卡慕,以此来逼迫他打开隐藏在阿蒙神庙下的伊述密室。他们希望密室中的秘密能够给予他们更强大的力量或是带领他们找到其他的伊甸碎片。由于这名守护者的反抗,弗拉维乌斯·梅特鲁斯杀害了他的儿子,并留他在那里等死。在那之后,阿蒙神谕者和维序者梅杜阿蒙保存着神器并对锡瓦施行了暴政。一年后,巴耶克回到锡瓦并用伊甸苹果锤杀了梅杜阿蒙。随后他前往了亚历山大,将苹果交给了他的妻子艾雅,艾雅又将苹果托付给了法老克利奥帕特拉的忠诚追随者阿波罗多洛斯[15]

Origins Quest22TheFinalWeighing Part17

弗拉维乌斯使用权杖打开锡瓦密室

亚历山大内战期间,上古维序者找到了亚历山大大帝的权杖,并说服了尤利乌斯·凯撒和克利奥帕特拉同他们结盟,在内战结束后将权杖借给了克利奥帕特拉一段时间。为了夺回苹果,维序者取回了权杖,并谋杀了阿波罗多洛斯。回到锡瓦之后,弗拉维乌斯·梅特鲁斯通过将苹果与权杖结合打开了密室。在密室中,他发现了一张显示着其他伊甸碎片位置的全息地图。这张地图被苹果下载了下来。在那之后,维序者卢修斯·塞普提米乌斯将权杖带回了罗马,并在那里将权杖交给了上古维序者组织。同时,弗拉维乌斯·梅特鲁斯保留了伊甸苹果并利用它的力量在精神上奴役着昔兰尼加的人民。当他在玛尔斯神庙面对巴耶克时,他又一次试图依靠这一装置打败这名守护者,但这一切都是徒劳无功,因为他的对手无论如何都设法杀死了他。之后,这名守护者将苹果藏于亚历山大图书馆之下。[15]

与此同时,塞普提米乌斯手中持有伊甸连枷。他将此作为他的专属武器,在与艾雅在庞培剧场的一对一战斗中挥舞着它们。但像在他之前的弗拉维乌斯·梅特鲁斯一样,他的优势明显不足,最终被艾雅所杀。在那之后不久,艾雅和巴耶克建立了无形者以对抗上古维序者,艾雅还召集了一群罗马元老院议员去刺杀尤利乌斯·凯撒。[15] 当这些议员(其中的主谋是马库斯·尤尼乌斯·布鲁图斯盖乌斯·卡西乌斯·隆基努斯)在随后对抗凯撒养子屋大维的战争中死亡后,无形者们绝望地试图用最初的伊甸裹尸布复活布鲁图斯。但他们沮丧地发现,这只能让他的生命延续一小会儿。[18]

伊西朵拉正在使用伊甸苹果

公元前38年,阿蒙神妻伊西朵拉使用阿肯那顿的伊甸苹果对抗帝王谷的盗墓者,以此为她母亲的死复仇。苹果的力量创造出了不死法老们的幻象,并攻击了底比斯的百姓,这使得他们相信这是一种诅咒。[14]巴耶克听说了通往底比斯的道路上出现金光的传闻,到达了塞特-阿娜特之墓,并与亡灵士兵们战斗。在墓中,他遇到了一个人,这人派他去找到墓中的一块石头。在归还了那块石头之后,那人就消失了,巴耶克也被亡灵士兵所击败。他苏醒之后,一名女子解释道他是在沙漠中被发现的。 当他试图讲述自己的经历时,这位女士却认为他只是产生了幻觉。巴耶克决定去调查这座城市。[19]

巴耶克收到了一封来自艾雅的信,信中说到有一个伊甸碎片隐藏在底比斯。他刚刚到达那里,就遭到了纳芙蒂蒂幻象的攻击。在巴耶克为了寻找伊甸碎片调查这座城市的过程中,他遇到了伊西朵拉。伊西朵拉隐瞒了真相,她告诉巴耶克他必须通过在死后世界使法老之灵安息来对抗诅咒,那便是“亚鲁”和“阿顿”。当巴耶克发现真相后,他杀死了伊西朵拉并派盗墓者苏特佧把苹果藏起来。但不久后,巴耶克发现了苏特佧的尸体,也不知道他是否完成了任务。[14]

基督教的开端编辑

公元1世纪,一个被称作耶稣基督的人在罗马犹大获得了一块伊甸裹尸布,并成为了他的追随者们的宗教改革者和先知。他接受了施洗约翰的洗礼,施洗约翰同时也是一柄伊甸权杖的拥有者。由于上古维序者想要夺取裹尸布,于是他们将耶稣钉上了十字架,以找回神器,但耶稣的门徒们取回了他的尸体,并用裹尸布包裹住他,希望能使他复活。三天后,耶稣的尸体消失了。[13][9]

耶稣的门徒之一圣彼得取得了一柄伊甸权杖,并成为了罗马基督教会的领导者。在这之后,这柄权杖在每一代教会领导者的手中传承了下去,这些领导者就是我们所知的基督教界的最高权威——教皇。 [13]

斯堪的纳维亚编辑

During the 10th century, the emperor Otto I was in possession of the Devotion prong. In 965, he passed the artifact to the bishop Poppa who evangelized Denmark and baptized the Templar and King of Denmark Harald Bluetooth. For two decades, Harald kept the prong, using its power to subtly turn foes into allies. Until 984, when Harald was forced into an alliance by his brother-in-law, Styrbjörn the Strong, who was immune to the power of the prong. During their war campaign against Styrbjorn's uncle, Eric the Victorious, the Prince took Harald's prized prong as a guarantee to prevent the Danish King from betraying him. Harald nevertheless decided to flee, and Styrbjorn kept the artifact, unaware of its true power. Styrbjörn later offered, what he believed to be a Christian relic, to the gods during his wedding to Thyra Haraldsdottir.[22]

Sent by Eric to assassinate the Prince, the Assassin Thorvald Hjaltason witnessed the wedding and took the "Aesir blade" from the shrine after their departure. After the Battle of Fyrisvellir during which Styrbjörn was defeated, Thorvald then entrusted the farmer and soldier Östen Jorundsson with hiding the prong where no one could find it. Östen buried the artifact on his lands where it remained for almost a thousand years.[22]

十字军东征编辑

“What of these artifacts? Messages in a bottle? Tools left behind to aid and guide us? Or do we fight for control over their refuse, giving divine purpose and meaning to little more than discarded toys?”
―Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's Codex, page 5.[来源]

In the 12th century, the Knights Templar participated in the Crusades, aiming for the conquest of the Holy Land. By the time of the Third Crusade, they were led by Grand Master Robert de Sable and had focused their efforts on acquiring a particular Piece of Eden: the Apple of Eden of Bayek which was hidden in the ruins of Solomon's Temple beneath the city of Jerusalem.[10]

Seeking the Apple to aid them in their mission and ensure their rule, the Templars used the cover of the Third Crusade to infiltrate the temple. However, one of their own betrayed them; Al Mualim, the Mentor of the Assassin Order who had secretly been allied to them, had sent his best agents to procure the device. Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, Malik Al-Sayf, and Kadar Al-Sayf intercepted the Templars, and the two parties engaged one another. While the Templars were able to eject Altaïr from the battle and kill Kadar, Malik successfully captured the Apple and spirited it back to the Assassin fortress in Masyaf.[10]

Masyaf Confront

Al Mualim using the Apple on Altaïr

When Al Mualim had the Apple and wanted to use the power of the artifact to create what he considered to be lasting peace in the Holy Land. He began by bewitching the Assassins and villagers of Masyaf but was confronted by Altaïr when the Master Assassin discovered his treachery. Despite conjuring illusions with the Apple, he was slain by Altaïr. In his dying moments, he challenged his former prize pupil to destroy the Apple as he had said he would, but when it projected a hologram of the globe, Altaïr beheld its potential and both knew that he would lack the will to carry out his word.[10]

In the aftermath, Altaïr took Al Mualim's corpse outside to be cremated to the protests of some Assassins as this was against their customs. Seizing upon the dispute, the Assassin Abbas Sofian took the Apple of Eden from Altaïr but immediately lost control of its power as it unleashed waves of energy. Altaïr recovered the artifact from Abbas before it could kill them all.[24]

Since he was unwilling to destroy the Apple, Altaïr decided to seal the Apple within the Archives on Limassol, Cyprus. Circumstances worked against this plan however, and he decided to keep the Apple for himself, not just to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands but also as a vital object of research.[25]

Over the course of his life, Altaïr gazed into the Apple frequently, basing new weaponry and assassination techniques on information gleaned from it. He recorded some of what he learned from the Apple in his Codex. When Abbas Sofian who usurped leadership of the Assassins and tried to take the Apple again, Altaïr went into exile in Alamut, where he studied the Apple for another twenty years. With the Apple, he created the Hidden Gun, which he used to finally recover Masyaf and kill Abbas in 1247.[26]

The torch 5

Altaïr using the Apple against the Mongols

In addition to knowledge useful for the Order's purposes, Altaïr witnessed visions of the past and future within the Apple, some of which greatly disturbed him.[3] In 1257, during the Mongol attack on Masyaf, Altaïr used the power of the Apple to repel the Mongol troops for a time. After Masyaf's people had been evacuated, he sealed himself in his library with the Apple, securing the Piece of Eden within a secret compartment. He designed his library to be only accessible with his five Memory Seals that doubled as keys; these he entrusted to Niccolò and Maffeo Polo who hid them beneath Constantinople.[27]

At the beginning of the 13th century, Genghis Khan acquired a Sword of Eden which he used to conquer most part of Asia and Middle East. Altaïr and his family tried to steal the Sword during their mission in Mongolia but they only assassinated Genghis.[28] Later, his grandson Hülegü Khan used the Sword during his conquest of the Levant in 1250. During the Fall of Masyaf, the Sword protected him from the power of Altaïr's Apple.[29]

By 1259, Möngke Khan was in possession off the Fear prong. When he was killed by the Chinese Assassin Zhang Zhi, the Khan was buried with the artifact.[30]

埃及马穆鲁克王朝编辑

Around 1250, the Scepter of Aset was recovered by an Italian fisherman. It then was entrusted by an Egyptian Assassin who gave the artifact to the Mamluks in Cairo. In 1257, Darim Ibn-La'Ahad, Altaïr's son, gave an Apple of Eden to further help the Mamluks revolt.[31]

In 1341, the Templars tried to recover the scepter while the Assassin Numa Al'Khamsin impeded their efforts. His disciple Ali Al-Ghraib hid the scepter in a well where it stayed for centuries.[31]

Tragedy of Jacques de Molay 11

De Molay's advisor hiding the Sword

14世纪早期,圣殿骑士最高大师圣者雅克·德·莫莱手中掌握有伊甸宝剑以及圣心, which granted more power to the Sword. During the Persecution of the Templars in 1307, the two artifacts were separated. The Sword was hidden in a vault under the Temple of Paris by Jacques de Molay's advisor while the Grand Master carved the Heart in the wall of his cell in the Château de Chinon.[32]

In 1350, the Brothers of the Cross, a Templar faction searched the Ankh of Eden in the city of Essen in Germany. The group mysteriously disappeared at the same moment than the Assassin Lukas Zurburg.[33]

In 1429, the peasant and Assassin ally Jeanne d'Arc recovered the Heart at Chinon and the Sword underneath the Church of Sainte-Catherine-de-Fierbois and used the artifacts during the Hundred Years' War to lead the French Army against the English. After the arrest of Jeanne, the Templars recovered the Sword while Jeanne gave the Heart to the former prostitute Fleur as she took her the place on the stake. As the Heart was found intact in the remains of the stake, the executioner Geoffroy Thérage threw it in the Seine, believing to have killed a saint.[32]

During the 14th century, the Templar Geoffroy de Charny possessed the original Shroud of Eden and in 1356 the Italian Brotherhood of Assassins stole the Piece of Eden before hiding it under the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni.[34]

明朝编辑

At the beginning of the 15th century, the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins possessed an Apple of Eden that an apprentice was tasked to protect. After the Assassin purge of 1402 launched by the Yongle Emperor and the Templars, the apprentice fled with the Assassin Li Tong, who became the keeper of the Apple of Eden.[33]

ACCC Zhang Yong box

In 1526, the Assassin Shao Jun returned in China with a Precursor box gave by the retired Italian Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze. To approach her Templar targets, the Eight Tigers, she decided to be captured with the box to assure her a chance to survive. The Tiger Gao Feng took the box and sent it to his Tiger brother Yu Dayong before being killed by Shao Jun. Later, the Assassin killed Yu Dayong in Macau and recovered the box. She entrusted the artifact to her Mentor Wang Yangming who went to Nan'an to find some people who can examine the box. Wang was killed by the leader of the Tigers Zhang Yong who took the box and sent it out of China to other Templars.[35]

By 1542, the Jiajing Emperor had come to possess a Crystal Skull. Using the artifact, he initiated contact with the Italian Assassin Giovanni Borgia, who had recovered another Crystal Skull from the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan.[36]

In June 1582, the Chinese Assassin Liu Yan brought a Sword of Eden to China from Japan to ensure the protection of the artifact.[29]

奥斯曼帝国编辑

By 1453, an Apple of Eden had fallen into the hands of Sultan Mehmet II of the Ottoman Empire. Using its powers, Mehmet was able to conquer Constantinople and subdue the Byzantine Empire, taking Constantinople as his new capital.[37] Mehmet II died in 1481 and he was succeeded by his oldest son, Bayezid II. Bayezid's brother Cem, a secret Templar, discreetly took his father's Apple of Eden for himself, hoping to use it to further the Templars' goals. However, to his dissatisfaction, the Apple refused to communicate with him despite his attempts to use it.[37]

Cem eventually decided to leave the Apple for European Templars to retrieve later. While on his way to meet the Knights Hospitalier on Rhodes, Cem made a stop in Cyprus and hid the Apple in the Templar Archive in Limassol, where the western Templars could find it.[37]

The Apple creating a Synch Nexus for Ezio

In 1512, the Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze recovered the Seals to open the Library of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad and discovered the Apple of Eden. When Ezio entered in contact with the artifact, he was connecting by a Synch Nexus to his descendant Desmond Miles to deliver a message from the Isu Tinia. After that Ezio left the Apple in the Library.[38]

In 1516, the Greek Brotherhood of Assassins was protecting an Apple of Eden. The rogue English Assassin Hiram Stoddard attacked the Assassin's hideout to recover the artifact and contact his deceased lover Elena. After killing the Assassins, Stoddard was ambushed by the Italian Assassin and old rival Giovanni Borgia who bested him and took the Apple before trying to convince him to return in the Brotherhood.[39]

To protect the city, Mario entrusted the Shroud to his brother Giovanni, who gave it to a cell of Assassins led by Rinaldo Vitturi located in Agnadello.[40]

In 1488, the Roman Rite of the Templar Order led by the cardinal and Grand Master Rodrigo Borgia recovered the Apple of Eden left by Cem in the Templar library in Cyprus and brought the artifact to Venice to open the Vatican Vault. Ezio Auditore, who wanted to kill Rodrigo to avenge the deaths of his father Giovanni and his brothers Federico and Petruccio, impersonated the escort of the artifact to approach the Grand Master. With the help of the Italian Assassins, Ezio scared away Rodrigo and recovered the Apple.[41]

Leo work 4

After being formally inducted in the Brotherhood, Ezio and the Assassins brought the Apple to Leonardo da Vinci to study the artifact. After agreeing that the Apple would be dangerous if it fell in the wrong hands, Ezio was tasked with the Assassin Niccolò Machiavelli to escort the Apple to Forlì where it would be entrusted to their ally Caterina Sforza. When they arrived, the city was attacked by the brothers Ludovico and Checco Orsi, who were hired by Rodrigo to recover the artifact. During the battle, Checco stole the Apple to Caterina but was later killed by Ezio who was severely wounded. While he was unconscious, the Apple was taken by the monk Girolamo Savonarola.[42]
Power to people 3

Savonarola using the Apple on Florence's citizens

In 1492, Rodrigo became pope under the name of Alexander VI and received the Staff of Eden which, combined with an Apple of Eden, could open the Vatican Vault. In 1494, Savonarola took control of Florence by using the Apple to bewitch his lieutenants. Alexander sent his men to recover the artifact.

By 1944, the Third Reich was in possession of an unidentified Piece of Eden. The Edelweiss Pirates, a group of German resistants, stole this artifact and hid it in the spire of the Cologne Cathedral. Twelve of the Pirates were captured. One of them, Barthel Schink, revealed the location of the artifact to his fellow member Miriam Kurtz and tasked her to brought the artifact to the Assassin in Paris.[113]

Milan, Italy

Scipione examining the Shroud

The same year, the original Shroud of Eden was in possession of the Baguttiani family in Milan. Abstergo Industries, the front-company of the Templar Order, sent their employe Keith Scipione to buy the artifact. On the day of Christmas 1944, Scipione met a member of the Baguttiani to confirm the nature of the artifact. Using a metallic keychain, Scipione was able to identify the Shroud as a true Piece of Eden and acquired it for the company.[34]

By 1945, Hilter seemed to have another artifact that he was tasked to bring to the Templar after faking his death, but the Assassins killed him before.[114]

冷战编辑

In 1948, the Templar assassinated Mahatma Gandhi to recover Altaïr's Apple of Eden.[109]

By 1957, Neumann was dying from cancer in Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.. Boris Pash infiltrated the Center with the Assassin Alekseï Gavrani and killed Neumann to recover Tesla's Apple.[112]

By 1961, as a President of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy inherited of Washington's Apple of Eden. As he was against the Templar's interests, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and member of the Templar William King Harvey ordered the assassination of the President to recover the artifact. Harvey was undercover in the Assassin Brotherhood, he implicated the Bloodstone Unit, an extremist cell of Assassin working for the CIA led by Pash.[112] For this plan, the agent of the United States Secret Service William Greer, who was at the same time a member of the Templar Order and of the Bloodstone Unit, was trained with Altaïr's Apple to recover the Apple in the possession of the President.[109]

ACBs - Greer holding Apple

The 22 November 1963 in Dallas, Kennedy was shot down by the Bloodstone Unit. While a Templar agent used Napoléon's Apple to create a "Phantom on the Hill" effect, Greer recovered Washington's Apple. While he was fled the scene, Greer was confronted by Gavrani who had left the Bloodstone Unit as he considered that Pash going too far. Gavrani stole the Apple and brought it to Harvey, unknowing that he was the mastermind behind the plot.[112]

In 1964 in the middle of Vietnam War, Pash used Tesla's Apple on the Bloodstone member Julia Gorm to unlock the memory of her father Eddie. As Julia tried to kill Pash, Gavrani intervened to protect him from the Assassin in exchange for Tesla's Apple. While Gavrani and Julia fought, Pash fled with his pregnant lover and Assassin Zenia on the USS Maddox where he gave Tesla's Apple to Harvey who revealed his true nature. He later entrusted the artifact to the Templar and doctor Warren Vidic, who used the Apple and Pash's newborn daughter Nathalie to develop his own research on Genetic Memory.[112]

In 1969, The Templar Order financed the Apollo 11 Moon landing to recover an Apple of Eden which was on the Moon. The Templar Buzz Aldrin took the artifact and brought it back to the Order.[115]

In 1977, Nathalie was one of the first test subjects of Vidic for his prototype of the Animus, a device that could read Genetic Memory. Discovering that Vidic kidnapped her from her parents, Nathalie fled with the Animus' blueprint and Tesla's Apple.[112]

By 2012, Templar front group Abstergo Industries was in the midst of a project to recover the remaining Pieces of Eden. The Animus Project was set up with the sole intention of locating the Pieces of Eden through the use of the Animus, a device based on Isu technology which allowed an individual to relive the genetic memories of their ancestors.[10]

The Templars sought to manipulate the neurotransmitters that made humanity susceptible to the Pieces' hypnotic effects. To accomplish this goal, they devised the Eye-Abstergo project, which would end in the launch of an "all-in-one telecommunication" satellite into orbit around Earth. However, unbeknownst to the rest of humanity, the satellite would contain an Apple of Eden, and spread its power across the globe.[10]

Retrieval 18

Desmond killing Lucy

On 10 October 2012, an Assassin team of Lucy Stillman, Desmond Miles, Shaun Hastings, and Rebecca Crane located the Apple of Eden hidden by Ezio Auditore beneath the Santa Maria Aracoeli in 1506, discovered by Desmond as he relived Ezio's memories in the Animus. When Desmond touched the Apple, Juno gained access to his nervous system for a brief time. Under Juno's control, Desmond killed Lucy,[116] who was secretly a Templar agent.[117]

Upon release from Juno's control, Desmond fell into a coma, but was able to regain consciousness through achieving a Synch Nexus.[4] Desmond, his father William, Shaun and Rebecca later arrived at the entrance of the Grand Temple in New York, where Desmond used the Apple to open the central chamber gate. It was only then that the Assassins discovered the Grand Temple Key was needed to open the inner gate.[5]

After William was captured by Templar agents in Cairo while looking for a power source for the Grand Temple, he was brought to Abstergo's Rome facility. Warren Vidic, a member of the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order and head of the Animus Project, proposed a deal with Desmond to exchange William for the Apple. Desmond travelled to Rome and entered the facility, killing the Abstergo agents and Daniel Cross. Arriving at Vidic's office, Desmond used the Apple to force the facility's guards to shoot Vidic and themselves, then released his father from confinement. Due to Vidic's death and failure to retrieve the Apple of Eden, the Eye-Abstergo project was put on hold indefinitely.[5]

特征属性编辑

“This... piece of silver cast out Adam and Eve. It turned staves into snakes. Parted and closed the Red Sea. Eris used it to start the Trojan War; and with it, a poor carpenter turned water into wine.”
―Al Mualim, speaking to Altaïr about the Apple.[来源]-[记忆]
Phrenology

Bombastus observing a Crystal Skull

Amongst the greatest tools known to man, the Apples of Eden can control the human mind by interacting with a neurotransmitter located deep in the human brain. Other Pieces of Eden are capable of warping reality, creating illusions, ensuring total obedience and healing physical injuries.[3][118] Both Templars and the Assassins believe that the Pieces of Eden were responsible for many historical tales and miracles, such as the Parting of the Red Sea, the Trojan War, the miracles enacted by Jesus Christ, and the Biblical plagues that ravaged Egypt.[10] According to Dr. Álvaro Gramática, all Pieces of Eden are made of an unknown metal resembling gold or silver that Abstergo dubbed 'Pathorica'.

碎片能力编辑

Some Pieces of Eden were known to interact with and change the passage of time, possibly creating paradoxes. Others were able to "speak" to those who wielded them, as was the case with Ezio Auditore, Perotto Calderon and Giovanni Borgia, who spoke with Ezio's Apple and the Shroud.[118][119]

When activated, Apples of Eden are capable of extending a pulse of energy that can drive those in the surrounding area to insanity and death. Doing so has a detrimental effect on the physical health of the wielder if they are unskilled in the Apples' use, but a capable user is not as easily afflicted.[116] Altaïr, for example, was able to use Apple #2 for a limited duration without adverse affects at age 92.[4] Using the Pieces' powers in short bursts can also minimize the negative effects dealt by the artifacts, though to what extent is unknown.[3]

碎片的毁坏编辑

Following the destruction of Apple of Eden #2 during an experiment at the Denver International Airport, the Templars found themselves in need of another artifact with similar properties. Seeking access to a map that indicated the location of all Pieces of Eden, Abstergo kidnapped Desmond Miles in order to view the memories of his ancestor, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. This would allow them to see the very same map that Altaïr discovered in 1191.[10]

Tungaska Explod v

通古斯大爆炸

Each of the Pieces of Eden contained a great deal of potential energy, and the destruction of one could cause an explosion on the scale of a nuclear blast. One such explosion occurred in 1908, in the region of Tunguska, Russia. The Imperial Sceptre, one of the Staves of Eden, was seemingly destroyed when Nikola Tesla fired at the Tunguska facility with his wireless electric weapon, attempting to strike a blow against the Templars.[3][10][120]

However, the blast failed to totally destroy the Staff, and at least one shard remained.[121] The Staff shard still possessed powers of mind control, as demonstrated by Grigori Rasputin. While he was in possession of the shard, he brainwashed Alexandra Feodorovna, the wife of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, as well as several disciples like Khioniya Guseva.[118]

阿泰尔解除苹果的作用

虽然第一文明在创造人类时附带了一种神经递质,使人类被迫接受伊甸碎片的意志,但最后神与他们的奴隶之间的通婚生育了一个混血种族。这些新人类拥有他们的神所拥有的某些本能,而最明显的一点是,他们还从约束人类服从伊甸碎片意志的神经递质压迫下获得了自由。[3]

已知最早的两位生来具有碎片效应免疫力的人类个体是亚当与夏娃,他们后来偷走了一个伊甸苹果,并促成了随后发生的战争。[3]其家系成员也遗传了先行者的特殊本能,并且对伊甸碎片的意志控制力免疫,虽然碎片的物理操纵能力对他们依然有效。[10]像阿泰尔、埃齐奥和戴斯蒙德这些个体都具有此类强化能力,并且对伊甸碎片的效用有抵抗力。[3]

在21世纪早期,圣殿骑士意识到,部分人类对伊甸苹果的意志控制力免疫,就此,他们开始主动寻找其他设备来弥补这个缺陷。至少有一次,阿布斯泰戈工业公司的雇员沃伦·韦迪克博士,收到了一封由某个身份不明的人发送的电子邮件,此人并没有受到苹果的力量影响,并且威胁要曝光他所看到的一切。[10]

Niccolò di Pitigliano using the Shroud

After seeing the Apple's projection indicating the location of all Pieces of Eden as of 1191, Altaïr copied the map and hid it within his Codex so that only his descendants might find it.[10]

Apples of Eden are all capable of controlling the hearts and minds of humanity, creating illusions and, to a degree, permitting control over physical bodies.[10] The Apples can be used in conjunction with a Staff, which increases the power of both the Pieces of Eden. Other Pieces include the Shroud, which heals the wounds of those it touches on a cellular level; the Ankh, capable of resurrecting the dead; and the Sword, a Piece which can project energy blasts and enhance the charisma of its welders. It was possessed by many great rulers through the centuries, including King Arthur, Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun.[3] A Sword was also in possession of the Knights Templar by 1307, and was subsequently entombed beneath the Temple in Paris. Centuries later, it was recovered by the Grand Master and Sage François-Thomas Germain.[122]

Ratonhnhaké:ton using a Crystal Ball and wearing the Grand Temple Key

The Crystal Skulls were Pieces scattered throughout Central and Southern America which allowed for unassisted telepathic communication between their owners. At one point, a Crystal Skull came into the possession of Giovanni Borgia, who made use of its power in 1542.[118] Similar artifacts known as Crystal Balls allowed users to access the Nexus and communicate with members of the Isu.[118][5] One of the Crystal Balls was notably used by the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton to communicate with Juno.[5] In addition, the Assassin Aveline de Grandpré discovered a Prophecy Disk in the Isu Temple of Chichen Itza, which showed her the election of Eve as the leader of humanity's rebellion against the Isu.[123]

In North America, William Kidd discovered a Ring of Eden, which creates a magnetic shield around the user and repels all metallic objects, creating the myth of his "invincibility". There was also the Grand Temple Key which, when combined with three ancient power sources, allowed the holder to open the gate to the inner chambers of the Grand Temple.[5]

ACII Codex Eagle V

The Codex Map of the Pieces

During the Golden Age of Piracy, an unidentified Piece of Eden in possession of the Templars was stolen by the Assassin Samuel Bellamy, with the help of fellow pirates Olivier Levasseur and Alonzo Batilla. Later, during a confrontation with Templar Christopher Condent, Batilla used the artifact, which increased his ship attacks and defenses, imbuing it with a golden aura, and allowing him to easily sink Condent's significantly more powerful vessel. [57]

According to emails read by Desmond Miles in 2012, at least one Piece of Eden existed that granted the ability to manipulate time. Concerns over possible paradoxes, however, led to Abstergo Industries locking it away.[10] Warren Vidic had a prototype Piece of Eden of his own design, which he used to brainwash Daniel Cross with an impulse to become a high ranking Assassin, so as to get close enough to kill their Mentor. Sebastian Monroe's team discovered the existence of the powerful Trident of Eden, which could manipulate the emotions of individuals -- fear, devotion and faith. [来源请求]

琐闻趣事编辑

Apple of Eden

One of the Apples of Eden

  • Al Mualim is the first known user and possible coiner of term.
  • According to the Glyphs and Truth files, many legends and myths throughout human history are actually historically accurate. The supernatural or paranormal parts of each legend can be explained by the protagonist in each having acquired their own Piece of Eden (i.e. the Greek myth of Perseus, King Arthur, etc).
  • During his battle with Rodrigo Borgia in the Sistine Chapel, Ezio created copies of himself, much like Al Mualim did against Altaïr. If Ezio's robes are customized, or if the Armor of Altaïr is worn, his copies appeared with different sets of armor and colors. If he was not customized, each copy would be perfectly identical to the real Ezio, besides his weapon.
  • Both the Codex map and the map projection show that there were only fifty Pieces of Eden at that time, though Subject 16 said the Shroud was Piece of Eden 66.
    • In the French and German version of Assassin's Creed II, the Shroud was referred to as number 36, not 66. This however, was an oversight.
  • The Chalice was initially thought to be a Piece of Eden; however, besides the Shroud, all other artifacts linked to the Christ-figure were confirmed to be merely literary tools.[10]
