查尔斯·李:“你为什么还要坚持……?你击败我们,我们会卷土重来;你终结一个阴谋,我们再策划另一个;你付出这么多努力……但结局都是一样的。认识你的人都认为你疯了,而这就是为什么……连你想要保护的人都背弃了你。但你仍然战斗,你仍在坚持反抗。这是为什么?
拉通哈给顿:“因为除我之外再也无人愿意挺身而出!
——1782年,查尔斯·李和拉通哈给顿争论各自所属阵营之间的冲突。[来源]

刺客-圣殿骑士战争(Assassin-Templar War)是一场刺客兄弟会圣殿骑士组织之间围绕意识形态,时常诉诸武力的对抗与冲突,贯穿了人类目前已知的全部历史。刺客与圣殿骑士这两大阵营经常参与,甚至操纵着国家、民族之间的战争,以此推动自己在这场战争中的计划,但是同时却又隐藏在常规政治的表象之下。

历史编辑

这场战争的缘由据信是该隐为了夺得弟弟亚伯伊甸苹果而杀害了自己的弟弟。但是,这场战争爆发的原因还有一种更可信的解释——这场战争正是人类-伊述战争的余波。[1]这场战争主要是在代表着各自理念的战士之间进行,他们操纵着各种政府与组织,以此实现各自的目标。

这场战争很少会有变得极其引人注意的时候,但像第三次十字军东征这样的时候,刺客与圣殿骑士会与自己的盟友并肩作战,把这场战争推到明面上来。[2]而这场战争另一次公开的时候,则是在海盗黄金时代,许多刺客试图将圣殿骑士船队里的圣者巴塞洛缪·罗伯茨劫持走,最后在哈瓦那的街道爆发了一场激烈的战斗。[6]

多峇巨灾爆发之后,幸存下来的人类领袖获得了若干件伊甸碎片,为如何利用这些伊甸碎片造福人类进行了一番辩论。他们注意到,他们昔日的主人干涉了他们的进化,打算用尽一切必要手段将人类引导到他们所决定好的道路上。他们为了实现他们的目的,将伊甸碎片作为付诸实践的工具,但却遭到了想要与第一文明交好的那些人的质疑。

但是,另一些人则想给予人类完全的自由,期望能迎来一个所有生命都能够遵从自身意志生活的世界。正因如此,“万事皆虚,万事皆允”这一准则成为了他们的核心理念,映照着他们认为万灵都应当能够自由选择自身道路的信仰。他们还相信,误将伊甸碎片用来控制他人违背了他们所奋斗、牺牲的最终目标,那是再次奴役人类的错误行为。

在这场战争的悠久历史当中,不少彼此相异的势力都曾参与其中,比如新生的美国[7]早年的苏联[8]奥斯曼帝国[5]法国[9]以及神圣罗马帝国[10]都曾与刺客联手,而被博吉亚家族控制的教廷[11]拜占庭帝国[5]大英帝国[9]现代的美国[11]以及纳粹德国[1]等都曾支持过圣殿骑士。[1][11]这些盟友关系很少能够持久,时常随着任意一方的领导层变动而变化。

到了20世纪,刺客-圣殿骑士战争很大程度上已经淡出公众视野,圣殿骑士主要通过他们的门面公司——阿布斯泰戈工业公司进行活动,刺客则在社会的边缘不断地挣扎、奋斗着。[2]

这场战争的漫长程度与所造成的损失极大地影响了卡皮托里尼三神避免第二次巨灾爆发的计划。2012年,朱诺大神殿里对戴斯蒙德·迈尔斯说话时评论称,刺客与圣殿骑士把数百年的时间浪费在了争夺伊述神器上;本该用来寻找神殿,继续拯救世界免遭太阳风暴侵袭的时间全都被他们的斗争浪费了。[7]

派系编辑

刺客与圣殿骑士编辑

在历史上,刺客与圣殿骑士也曾通力合作,为了共同的目标而奋斗。第一个合作的例子便是黎凡特刺客阿泰尔·伊本-拉阿哈德英国圣殿骑士玛利亚·索普,二人虽然初衷不同,但还是合作击败了阿尔芒·布沙尔[12]

During a Maroon rebellion in Port-au-Prince, the Assassin Adéwalé was led to helping the brothel owner and Templar ally Bastienne Josèphe defeat the murderous and merciless Marquis de Fayet, who was an infamous slave trader that had ordered a French ship to destroy an approaching slave delivery ship during the rebellion. When Adéwalé decided that justice would be served, he battled overseers and French guards, all dead, and killed de Fayet with a branding iron and his machete. He left later on, leaving the Precursor box that Bastienne sought in her hands.[13] They even had a son later on, and Adéwalé's grandson Eseosa became an influential part of the final Maroon rebellion, the Haitian Revolution.[14]

Another notable alliance occurred during the American Revolutionary War. When Benjamin Church turned on the Colonial Rite of the Templar Order, the Grand Master of the Rite, Haytham Kenway, pursued him with the help of his son, the Assassin Connor, whose aim was to recover the supplies stolen by Church, meant for George Washington's forces stationed at Valley Forge. After Church's death, the pair continued to work together, in order to allow the colonies to gain independence from the British Empire. However, when Haytham revealed Washington's intent to attack Connor's village of Kanatahséton for a second time, the Assassin severed ties with both of them.[7]

During the French Revolution, the Assassin Arno Dorian and his adoptive Templar sister Élise de la Serre hunted the Grand Master of an extremist faction within the Templar Order, François-Thomas Germain, for his involvement in the assassination plot of François de la Serre, former Grand Master and father of Élise, who sought to maintain a truce between the Templars and Assassins. However, such truces were short-lived, since the leaders that succeeded those who brokered them, rarely honored the truce. Mirabeau, the Mentor of the French branch of the Assassin Order, was poisoned by Pierre Bellec, who held a fanatical belief of peace between the two factions being impossible.[15]

In 1868, the Assassin Jacob Frye temporarily aligned himself with the Templar Pearl Attaway, against Malcolm Millner and her cousin, the Grand Master of British Rite of the Templar Order, Crawford Starrick. Jacob was unaware of Pearl's true allegiance however, and immediately resolved to assassinate her upon his discovery.[16]

其他阵营编辑

Besides working with Templar defectors, the Assassins also caught the attention of other organizations. During the Renaissance period, Mario Auditore led a band of mercenaries during various assignments for the benefit of the Brotherhood, such as the attack on Vieri de' Pazzi in San Gimignano.[1]

In Venice, and later Rome, Bartolomeo d'Alviano led a company of mercenaries allied with the Assassins. Several brothels in Italy were led by Assassins, including Paola, Teodora Contanto and Claudia Auditore da Firenze, operating in Florence, Venice and Rome, respectively. Some of the thief groups were led by Assassins, such as La Volpe and Antonio de Magianis. However, others opted to stand with the Templars, such as the Cento Occhi, in Rome,[11] or some of the pirates of Nassau, such as Benjamin Hornigold, Josiah Burgess, and John Cockram.[6] Another pirate known as Le Chasseur helped the Colonial Brotherhood during the Seven Years' War, but was killed by Shay Cormac before he could be inducted into the Order as a member.[9]

In modern times, other organizations have taken notice of the conflict between the Assassins and Templars, such as the Initiates, a group of unidentified individuals with vast resources and connections, who eventually allied themselves with the Brotherhood. The hacker collective, Erudito, worked to uncover Abstergo Industries' plots to control humanity; one of their notable activities was hacking the Liberation video game developed by Abstergo Entertainment using edited versions of Aveline de Grandpré's genetic memories. While Abstergo planned to omit all references to the Templars and discredit the Assassins, the Erudito hacks allowed the user to see the original footage and learn the truth.[17]

The Templars also came into contact with the Instruments of the First Will, a group of people who wish to grant control over humanity to Juno, a member of the First Civilization who was freed from her imprisonment in the Grand Temple during Desmond Miles' sacrifice. The Master Templar Juhani Otso Berg mentioned using the Instruments to acquire Pieces of Eden, while the other group siphons Templar resources to achieve their own plan. However, the Templars do not consider the Instruments of the First Will to be a threat, and do not prioritize eliminating Juno, either.[9][15]
