In 1908, Nikolai Orelov and two other Assassins found and interrogated a Templar named Dolinsky, who - under heavy threats from Orelov - gave up the location of where the Staff of Eden was located; Tunguska, previously taken there by the Templar agent Grigori Rasputin. The Assassins contacted Nikola Tesla, a scientist who was previously heavily discredited and slandered by industrialist Templars in the United States, and offered him a chance to take revenge on the Templars by broadcasting electricity to the Tunguska facility to destroy it, while Orelov and his two companions were ordered to retrieve the artifact from the facility. The Assassins went into the research facility and killed the Templar guards inside, but were too late to complete their objective. As soon as Orelov reached out to grab the Staff, Tesla broadcasted electricity to the facility, causing the Tunguska explosion. Orelov was the only survivor.
In 1917, the Bolsheviks instigated the Russian Revolution against Tsar Nicholas II. The Russian Assassins strongly supported the Bolsheviks, hoping to abdicate the Tsarist throne. Under pressure from the Assassins, Nicholas formally abdicated the throne in 1917. Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the Bolsheviks whose brother was an Assassin himself, requested his old friend Nikolai Orelov to assassinate Nicholas II, to bring the Revolution to an end. Orelov left for the Winter Palace, having seen a picture of Nicholas holding a staff similar to the one destroyed in the Tunguska explosion. Orelov infiltrated Nicholas' Winter Palace and confronted the Tsar, who showed Orelov the staff under pressure. Orelov, in his old age, spared the Tsar's life, feeling no obligation to do so.
Nonetheless, the other Assassins continued to support the Bolsheviks. Ultimately, the Assassins would lose control over the Revolution.
