康纳: "圣殿骑士的真正目的是什么?"
海瑟姆·肯维: "秩序。决心。方向。仅此而已。"
―康纳和海瑟姆肯维,有关殖民地圣殿骑士目的的争论,1778年[来源]

圣殿骑士组织美国分册(American Rite of the Templar Order),在美国独立战争前名为圣殿骑士组织殖民地分册(Colonial Rite of the Templar Order),是圣殿骑士组织众多分册之一,行动据点设立于美国(原英属北美十三殖民地)。来自圣殿骑士组织不列颠分册海瑟姆·肯维,于1754年按照不列颠分册最高大师雷金纳德·伯奇寻找一座可能位于北美殖民地的先行者遗迹这一命令,来到北美建立殖民地分册,成为该分册第一位最高大师

殖民地分册的行动范围包括北美十三殖民地以及加拿大,在七年战争法国-印第安人战争美国革命中都发挥了十分重要的作用,他们的行动到后来主要意在篡夺对美国这个新生国家的控制权。但是,圣殿骑士的计划最终被刺客拉通哈给顿与重建起来的殖民地刺客兄弟会(后改称美国刺客兄弟会)所挫败。

随着美国诞生,殖民地分册改组为美国分册。到1863年,圣殿骑士组织美国分册在最高大师威廉·M·特威德的领导下试图影响南北战争的结果。

历史编辑

成立之前编辑

新大陆编辑

据称,1398年时苏格兰圣殿骑士詹姆斯·冈恩曾参加亨利·辛克莱探索新大陆的远征。这场远征据说抵达了后来的新斯科舍马萨诸塞[1]

塞勒姆女巫审判案编辑

1692年,圣殿骑士塞缪尔·帕里斯威廉·斯托顿来到塞勒姆后,在塞勒姆发起了猎巫运动,搜寻先行者神器。发现刺客汤姆·斯托达德珍妮弗·奎莉也来到塞勒姆寻找神器后,斯托顿利用塞勒姆镇上的居民追杀他们两人。但帕里斯反对他这一做法。最后,他们在沼泽地里追上了两名刺客。斯托顿放走了受伤的奎莉,想要借此跟踪她找到斯托达德并确定先知多萝西的下落。认为珍妮弗已经背叛的斯托达德对珍妮弗发动了攻击。斯托顿抓住机会,袭击了斯托达德等人,将珍妮弗、斯托达德以及多萝西三人都抓了起来。[2]

斯托顿拷打了两名刺客,想从他们嘴里问出情报。他甚至还以奎莉不能说话的私生子大卫的性命威胁两人。奎莉同意交代情报时,康苏斯再次附身在多萝西身上。奎莉抓住机会杀死了一名守卫,释放了斯托达德,斯托顿当场开枪将她射杀。接着,斯托达德想要释放多萝西与大卫,被斯托顿一枪射中手臂。但是,听到斯托顿打算在抓到的女人身上复制先行者神谕之后,多萝西选择跳火自杀。随后,斯托顿威胁要杀死斯托达德,却被帕里斯打断。帕里斯开了两枪,打中了斯托顿两侧的肩膀。然后,帕里斯调转枪口,指着斯托达德,表示自己不想留下任何见到这场惨案的目击者。但是,斯托达德说服了他,表达了自己对多萝西牺牲的尊敬之情。帕里斯收起了枪,把牢房的钥匙交给了斯托达德,让斯托达德把被指控为女巫的女人和那个叫大卫的哑巴男孩都放走。他叮嘱斯托达德,不是所有圣殿骑士都该得到一模一样的评判。他还告诉斯托顿,他们在塞勒姆的任务到此为止。[2]

寻找伊述神殿编辑

1738年,最高大师雷金纳德·伯奇任命英国圣殿骑士劳伦斯·华盛顿担任新大陆上英属殖民地的最高大师,委派他寻找先行者遗迹等其他第一文明遗迹、遗产。来到新大陆后,劳伦斯·华盛顿招募塞缪尔·史密斯威廉·约翰逊等人加入组织,还和著名探险家克里斯托弗·吉斯特取得了联系。[1]

这一时期,吉斯特结识了试图偷他东西的年轻盗贼杰克·威克斯。这个大胆的小伙子给吉斯特留下了很深的印象,被吉斯特雇为跟班随从。[1]

1750年,伯奇派圣殿骑士特务乔治·门罗前来协助劳伦斯·华盛顿搜寻神殿。此外,吉斯特向门罗介绍了威克斯,门罗同意雇佣他,让他担任助手。最后,见识到威克斯本领的门罗将圣殿骑士组织的有关事宜告诉了他,在1751年正式将威克斯与吉斯特招募为圣殿骑士组织成员。[1]

By Invitation Only 6

圣殿骑士组织成员在维农山庄碰头

同年,在太子港地震后,圣殿骑士从海地刺客手里夺得了两件神器,一件是先行者之盒,另一件则是伏尼契手稿。1752年7月,劳伦斯在他位于维农山的山庄里将这两件神器交给了塞缪尔·史密斯与詹姆斯·沃德罗普,随后被刺客谢伊·科马克刺杀。[1]

在劳伦斯遇刺之后,沃德罗普在事实上接任殖民地圣殿骑士的领袖职位,而史密斯前往欧洲,寻找一位可以让先行者之盒启动的科学家。1754年,史密斯回到欧洲之后,被前来为刺客夺取先行者之盒的谢伊·科马克刺杀。同年,圣殿骑士威廉·约翰逊在奥尔巴尼会议上同本杰明·富兰克林见面,希望他能启动先行者之盒。但是,谢伊·科马克在沃德罗普将伏尼契手稿转交给约翰逊之前杀死了沃德罗普,夺走了伏尼契手稿。[1]

成立分册编辑

ACIII-WtB 1

成立殖民地分册的海瑟姆·肯维在波士顿码头与查尔斯·李见面

1754年4月,英国圣殿骑士海瑟姆·肯维刺杀英国刺客领袖米科时得到了一把用途不明的钥匙。在进一步确认后,圣殿骑士认定,这把钥匙是某个先行者遗迹的钥匙。于是雷金纳德·伯奇派海瑟姆前往英属北美殖民地寻找这座遗迹。7月8日,海瑟姆乘船抵达波士顿,下船后遇到了前来迎接他的查尔斯·李。查尔斯·李是一个前途无量的年轻小伙,希望能够加入圣殿骑士的组织。在查尔斯的帮助下,海瑟姆开始召集在雷金纳德·伯奇安排下前来协助海瑟姆展开搜索的四名圣殿骑士:威廉·约翰逊、托马斯·希基本杰明·丘奇医生与英军军官约翰·皮特凯恩[3]

海瑟姆与约翰逊在绿龙酒馆碰了头,得知刺客窃取了约翰逊有关原住民部落的研究成果。海瑟姆带着约翰逊手下同为圣殿骑士的两名助手——查尔斯与托马斯·希基夺回了存放着约翰逊研究成果的箱子。根据研究成果,约翰逊确认大神殿钥匙上的标志来自莫霍克人的部落,他们需要来自莫霍克人的帮助才能找到这座神殿。海瑟姆和查尔斯前去寻找本杰明·丘奇,却发现丘奇被一个名叫西拉斯·撒切尔的英军军官以征收保护费的事由劫持。这个军官为人残暴,但幸运的是丘奇被海瑟姆和查尔斯从西拉斯的助手卡特手中顺利救下,保得一命。[3]

之后,海瑟姆与查尔斯试着招募约翰·皮特凯恩,但曾身为圣殿骑士与海瑟姆手足兄弟的英军将领爱德华·布雷多克认定皮特凯恩是个逃兵,拒绝放他离开军队。一段时间之后,海瑟姆与查尔斯袭击了押送皮特凯恩的卫兵,放走了皮特凯恩。得知撒切尔手头有一批莫霍克人奴隶后,海瑟姆又与他的弟兄们决定假扮成英军士兵潜入南门堡释放这些原住民,以此从他们那里问到大神殿的所在地。[3]

ACIII-InfiltratingSouthgate 5

潜入南门堡的圣殿骑士们

圣殿骑士们偷到了一辆押送奴隶的马车。莫霍克原住民卡涅齐欧正巧被关在这辆马车上。混入南门堡后,卡涅齐欧从马车上逃出,前去解救其他原住民。圣殿骑士与卡涅齐欧一同释放了被押作奴隶的原住民,引发了看守与原住民之间的冲突。在混乱之中,丘奇一枪打中了撒切尔的脑袋。在原住民们逃出南门堡时,卡涅齐欧朝海瑟姆笑了笑,表示了自己的感激。[3]

1755年,海瑟姆和查尔斯前往开拓地寻找卡涅齐欧。他们找到她之后,她却转身逃跑。海瑟姆成功追上了她,向她解释自己为何需要她的帮助。卡涅齐欧拒绝了他的请求,海瑟姆只能向她保证他值得信任。于是他向卡涅齐欧承诺会帮助原住民阻止英军远征队继续向原住民的领地深入。在调查中他们发现,自法国-印第安人战争爆发后,爱德华·布雷多克在英国政府安排下为夺取法军要塞迪凯纳堡而发动了远征

7月,海瑟姆所成立的分册组织与莫霍克人的部落联手配合法军发动了突袭,一举击溃了远征部队。海瑟姆也借此机会杀死了布雷多克。为了兑现承诺,卡涅齐欧带着海瑟姆来到了先行者的遗迹,但海瑟姆发现此处与普通的洞穴无异,失望地离开了。[3]

ACIII-BraddockExpedition 18

查尔斯·李正式加入圣殿骑士组织

之后,海瑟姆回到绿龙酒馆,向他的弟兄们解释称莫霍克人的洞穴什么都没有,什么都不是。然后,他决定正式建立圣殿骑士组织殖民地分册,分册最高大师由他担任,并正式欢迎查尔斯·李加入他们的行列。在那时起,圣殿骑士们继续着对神殿的搜索,并协助英军对抗法军,促进了殖民地的统一。[3]

殖民地刺客清洗编辑

1756年,门罗的手下救下了背叛了刺客兄弟会后遭到抛弃只能等死的谢伊·科马克。门罗在谢伊的身上找到了伏尼契手稿。理解谢伊的用意后,门罗把谢伊送到了巴里·芬尼根卡西迪·芬尼根夫妇家中,让他们在接下来几周时间里照顾受伤的谢伊。这对老夫妇的儿子也是一名圣殿骑士。6月时,一伙与刺客兄弟会合作的黑帮成员袭击了芬尼根家。门罗本想对黑帮的总部发动进攻,但谢伊抢先了一步,除掉了这群黑帮的头目。

Keep Your Friends Close 7

克里斯托弗·吉斯特、乔治·门罗与曾为刺客的谢伊·科马克

见识到谢伊的潜力之后,门罗成功说服了谢伊,让谢伊为自己效命,却没有向他透露自己圣殿骑士的身份。谢伊同意帮助门罗重建纽约。之后,吉斯特被曾袭击过芬尼根家的那伙黑帮抓住。门罗派谢伊前去阿森纳堡解救吉斯特。救出吉斯特后,谢伊夺回了这座堡垒与他身为刺客时所驾驶的摩莉甘号战舰,任命吉斯特担任他的大副。随后谢伊、吉斯特与门罗驾船穿过河谷,袭击了阻碍门罗行动的法军要塞。谢伊潜入了这座要塞,见到了身为刺客盟友的猎人。见到谢伊仍然活着的猎人十分惊讶。谢伊为了阻止猎人将自己还活着的事实透露给其他刺客成员,不得不动手杀死了猎人。临终时,猎人告诉谢伊,刺客们正计划对纽约的官员下毒。于是谢伊回到纽约阻止自己曾经的战友。他和门罗一同计划摧毁刺客的毒气工厂。炸毁毒气工厂后,谢伊与门罗、吉斯特、威廉·约翰逊与杰克·威克斯会合。谢伊在惊讶之余明白他帮助的是自己往日的敌人,但他没有表露出自己的想法。[1]

1757年,乔治·门罗被派往面临着法军威胁的威廉·亨利堡。因此,门罗将伏尼契手稿寄给谢伊保管,向谢伊吐露了自己身为圣殿骑士的事实。谢伊决定和吉斯特与威克斯一起救援门罗。在威廉·亨利堡的围攻结束后,路易-约瑟夫·德·蒙卡尔姆授意英军部队撤走。但撤退的英军部队遭到了刺客肯瑟苟沃斯所率领的阿贝纳基人的袭击。谢伊及时赶到,救了门罗一命,却被肯瑟苟沃斯认出。在逃脱时,谢伊引发了爆炸,在肯瑟苟沃斯的脸上留下了伤痕。

Scars 10

门罗将他的圣殿骑士戒指托付给谢伊

之后,门罗得知肯瑟苟沃斯准备对奥尔巴尼发起进攻。门罗决定加强奥尔巴尼的城防并派谢伊前去协助与英军结盟而被肯瑟苟沃斯袭击的部落奥奈达。11月,谢伊在刺客进攻奥尔巴尼时来到了这座城市。他在要塞里将伏尼契手稿交还给了门罗。肯瑟苟沃斯杀进了要塞,却被谢伊用转膛枪射杀。与此同时,门罗被谢伊以前最好的朋友——刺客利亚姆·奥布莱恩重伤,手稿也被夺走。谢伊从熊熊燃烧的房子里救出了门罗,但为时已晚。门罗临终之前将自己的圣殿骑士戒指交给了谢伊,将自己未竟的事业托付给了他。[1]

1758年,海瑟姆·肯维从欧洲回来后,谢伊参加了入会仪式,正式加入圣殿骑士组织。得知刺客在路易斯堡附近活动后,谢伊、吉斯特与海瑟姆与詹姆斯·库克船长在皇家海军彭布罗克号战舰上碰头。船长告诉他们,将会有一支英军舰队袭击要塞。考虑到要塞的防御工事相当严密,圣殿骑士们决定协助英军,彭布罗克号则交给谢伊指挥。在战斗中,加勒比刺客阿德瓦莱驾驶信者号协助法军作战。信者号脱离了战场,圣殿骑士则决定留下来摧毁附近海域的火船,随后得到了英国海军的支援。因为英军取胜,圣殿骑士得以专心对付殖民地刺客。之后,谢伊、吉斯特与海瑟姆发现了阿德瓦莱,摩莉甘号与信者号展开了一场激战。随后,阿德瓦莱驾船搁浅在海岸上,以此逃避敌人的追击。海瑟姆决定继续追击,让谢伊去杀死阿德瓦莱。随着阿德瓦莱被谢伊所杀,刺客的士气遭到了沉重的打击。[1]

1759年,刺客导师阿基里斯·达文波特、利亚姆·奥布莱恩、霍普·詹森德·拉·维伦德里骑士在纽约会合,准备使用伏尼契手稿与先行者之盒找到另一座神殿。谢伊窃听了他们的谈话,向海瑟姆与威克斯告知了刺客们的计划。在威克斯的帮助下,谢伊假扮成黑帮成员,诱使英军士兵转而对抗刺客,促成了英军对霍普·詹森宅邸的围攻。谢伊在霍普宅邸仓库的屋顶上看到利亚姆带着先行者之盒与手稿离开,而霍普突然开枪打碎了谢伊偷看时所在的天窗。谢伊跌到地上之后,霍普试着用毒气杀死谢伊,但谢伊逃出了仓库。霍普见此,用毒镖击中了谢伊,谢伊不得不杀死她才夺得解毒药,保住了自己的性命。临死之前,霍普告诉谢伊,神器在维伦德里骑士手中。[1]

在刺杀霍普·詹森之后,谢伊与吉斯特协助英国皇家海军在新法兰西加拿大的拉布拉多爆发的拉布拉多战役中对抗法国海军。他们消灭了法军舰队前来保护法方控制海岸的第一波攻势,随后击沉了法军旗舰冕冠号与其支援舰。[1]

1759年晚些时候,谢伊·科马克与克里斯托弗·吉斯特同皇家海军一同出航,在北大西洋追击于极北之地活动的穷凶极恶的海盗。这些海盗以恫吓北大西洋往来贸易船只赚钱,不少贸易船只都深受其苦。谢伊击沉了威廉·克莱斯特船长的海釜号约瑟夫·“贵族”·里德船长的朝圣号。这些在大西洋上活动的海盗残党背后虽得到法国支持,却最终被谢伊与皇家海军悉数消灭。[1]

与此同时,英国夺得了北冰洋的支配权。法国为了夺回控制权而选择孤注一掷,组建了一支舰队,舰队的旗舰是刺客麾下最为强大的战舰——风暴要塞号。谢伊与吉斯特驾驶摩莉甘号在英军炮艇的支援下出击。摩莉甘号与风暴要塞号的相会正在风暴之中,英军炮艇也被风暴要塞的舰炮击沉。风暴要塞号受到重创后,担任其护卫舰的风帆战舰阿格诺号权杖号也会加入战斗。但是,摩莉甘号顺利地击沉了风暴要塞号与两艘护卫舰,维持了英国对北冰洋的控制。[1]

1760年,谢伊在詹姆斯·库克的帮助下找到了维伦德里骑士在北大西洋的下落,并且对他的海东青号发动了登船攻击。经过决斗,谢伊击败了维伦德里骑士,却从维伦德里骑士口中得知他只是前来为其他人拖延时间,阿基里斯与利亚姆已经赶往神殿。盛怒之下,谢伊将维伦德里骑士丢进了冰冷的海水里。

Non Nobis Domine 9

北极神殿里对峙的谢伊、海瑟姆与阿基里斯、利亚姆

1760年3月,圣殿骑士追踪阿基里斯与利亚姆来到了北冰洋的一座先行者神殿。谢伊与海瑟姆潜入了刺客的营地,与阿基里斯和利亚姆二人几乎同时来到了神殿。阿基里斯明白谢伊之前有关地动神殿的说法其实没有错误,阻止了想要触碰基座上神器的利亚姆。谢伊与利亚姆吵了起来,利亚姆把枪想要向谢伊开枪。阿基里斯连忙阻止他,基座上的神器却因此被不慎碰掉,引发了地震,神殿随即开始崩塌。逃脱途中,利亚姆坦白称他们手里只有手稿,维伦德里骑士已经把先行者之盒藏了起来。谢伊成功地追上了利亚姆,同他决斗。这时,他们脚下的冰块崩裂,两人一同落入瀑布之中。谢伊活了下来,利亚姆却坠落而死。取回手稿后,谢伊与海瑟姆会合,追上了阿基里斯,在剑术决斗中击败了往日的导师。海瑟姆正要处决阿基里斯,谢伊拦住了他,要求饶他一命,好让刺客明白先行者遗迹有多危险。阿基里斯同意了谢伊饶他一命的条件,但海瑟姆为了保险起见,还是开枪打瘸了阿基里斯的一条腿。回到摩莉甘号上之后,海瑟姆委派谢伊前去寻找先行者之盒,其他圣殿骑士则负责消灭剩余的刺客。[1]

ACIII-HideandSeek 7

查尔斯·李掐着拉通哈给顿的脖子,而这个男孩后来成为了一名刺客

1760年11月,一群圣殿骑士在查尔斯·李的率领下袭击了一个莫霍克小男孩,这个小男孩实际上是海瑟姆与卡涅齐欧的儿子。他们向这个小男孩逼问他村子的位置,这样他们就可以向村中的原住民询问有关大神殿的事情了;但是这个男孩死不开口,什么都没有告诉他,随后被打晕了过去。尽管当天是乔治·华盛顿带人烧毁了这个男孩的村子,但这个名叫拉通哈给顿的小男孩却坚持认为烧毁村子的罪魁祸首是查尔斯·李等人。[3]

圣殿骑士们最后放弃了对大神殿的搜寻,转而着重扩大他们在殖民地的势力。1763年,圣殿骑士组织殖民地分册对作为剩余殖民地刺客行动基地的达文波特家园发动了一次攻击。剩余的刺客几乎全部遇害,阿基里斯同意取消殖民地内所有刺客活动后才被圣殿骑士们饶了一命。[3]

独立战争编辑

在击败刺客之后,圣殿骑士的势力不断扩大。与此同时,因为税收愈发沉重与在英国议会中没有代表席位等原因,北美十三殖民地迸发出了革命的火星,很快便形成燎原之势。圣殿骑士的计划便是同时影响必将发生冲突的双方,以便减少殖民地独立中可能发生的暴力事件,打造一个圣殿骑士的国家。约翰逊与原住民交易,向他们提供保护。成为少校的皮特凯恩以“和平守护者”的名号声名在外,深受波士顿居民尊敬。丘奇加入了搜集情报的爱国者团体自由之子,却偷偷联系英军,背叛了爱国者与圣殿骑士。但在圣殿骑士不曾注意的时候,殖民地刺客兄弟会开始了重建;海瑟姆·肯维的私生子——拉通哈给顿开始接受阿基里斯·达文波特的训练。[3]

ACIII-TriptoBoston 13

查尔斯·李开枪引起波士顿大屠杀

之后,1770年3月5日,在海盗休·怀特打伤爱德华·加里克后,波士顿一群民众在旧州议会大厦附近聚集,要求伸张正义。海瑟姆派自己的一个同僚去对士兵开枪,希望引发民众与士兵之间的冲突。但是拉通哈给顿抢先一步杀死了这个人。查尔斯·李见状执行了备用计划,在屋顶上朝天开了一枪。英军士兵误以为这枪是民众开的,于是对群众开枪,造成五人死亡,多人受伤。这一事件使民众对英国当局愈发愤怒。六个月之后,在丘奇的招募下,英国海军下级军官尼古拉斯·毕德尔加入了圣殿骑士组织。[3]

1773年,圣殿骑士的船只装作英军船只开始袭击南塔克特岛沿岸,使局势变得更加动荡不安。同年,威廉·约翰逊想要从易洛魁人手里购买土地,这样若是殖民地定居者想要夺走他们的土地,他们便会得到保护。为了给这项计划提供资金,约翰逊在波士顿走私茶叶——这些茶叶的价格在《茶税法》颁布后变得更加昂贵——又和税务官一起向波士顿的居民强征税款。但拉通哈给顿在史蒂芬·夏菲尔与自由之子的帮助下挫败了约翰逊的计划,将约翰逊的茶叶全部倒进了波士顿港口的海水中。此次事件后来被称为波士顿倾茶事件,成为了美国独立战争的导火索。六个月后,约翰逊筹集到了从易洛魁人处购买土地的资金,在与原住民会面的时候被拉通哈给顿所杀。[3]

1775年4月,约翰·皮特凯恩希望将尚未爆发的独立战争扼杀在摇篮里。他率领一支英军部队前往列克星敦逮捕塞缪尔·亚当斯约翰·汉考克,准备讯问他们。但和爱国者民兵部队打了照面的英军部队直接爆发了战斗。在康科德,爱国者民兵部队在拉通哈给顿的指挥下重创英军部队,皮特凯恩只能带人撤退。随着爱国者部队展开对波士顿的围攻,美国独立战争正式爆发。[3]

随着大陆军的建立,圣殿骑士向北美殖民地的反叛者一方安插了许多人手。想要成为大陆军总司令的查尔斯·李当选为部队的二把手,而乔治·华盛顿则当选为总司令。丘奇成为了大陆军的首席医师,希基成为了华盛顿的私人保镖,而毕德尔成为了大陆海军舰队的一名船长。在邦克山之役中,皮特凯恩试图达成停火和约,但拉通哈给顿认定他是要谋害亚当斯与汉考克,刺杀了他。年底,丘奇被希望获取情报的英军抓获,后被驱逐出了圣殿骑士组织。[3]

1775年,弗吉尼亚总督约翰·穆雷·邓莫尔勋爵发表宣言,称向所有愿意加入亲英派军队的奴隶提供自由。曾是奴隶路易斯安那圣殿骑士乔治·戴维森见状背弃了爱国者的事业,转而加入了邓莫尔勋爵的埃塞俄比亚军团,与旧友提图斯·科尼利厄斯一同对抗他们原先效命的组织。[4]

独立战争时期,身为圣殿骑士的英国陆军军官马修·达文波特勇猛作战,他战略上的技巧与作战的勇气相得益彰。马修还派他的女儿埃莉诺·马洛执行圣殿骑士最需要才干的对抗刺客的任务,而埃莉诺成功隐藏了自己的身份。[3]

ACIII-Publicexecution 7

查尔斯·李准备在纽约市政厅附近的刑场上处决拉通哈给顿

圣殿骑士还想要杀死华盛顿,这样一来,查尔斯·李便可接管属于华盛顿的职位与权力。海瑟姆委派托马斯·希基去执行这一任务。1776年6月,拉通哈给顿到纽约,试图杀死在纽约制造假币的希基,却和希基一起以制造假钞的罪名被捕。两人被关进布莱德维监狱后,希基与查尔斯成功地将监狱长的死连同谋划刺杀华盛顿的罪名嫁祸给了拉通哈给顿。第二天,查尔斯·李将拉通哈给顿送上了绞刑架,但得知拉通哈给顿是自己儿子的海瑟姆朝着绞绳丢了一把飞刀,割断了绞索。一片混乱之中,托马斯·希基想要杀死华盛顿,却被拉通哈给顿所刺杀。[3]

这一年里,圣殿骑士继续与英军船只一同袭击南塔克特岛,迫使大陆议会将更多的战舰交给毕德尔指挥。毕德尔受命指挥盾狼号护送贝拉多娜号向大陆军运送补给,但他却派遣圣殿骑士麾下的舰船去袭击贝拉多娜号。拉通哈给顿驾驶天鹰号阻止了他,并杀死了这位圣殿骑士的上将。年底,查尔斯·李被英军俘获,交代了大陆军的情报,以此削弱华盛顿担任总司令的威望。奇袭特伦顿时,在特伦顿的德国上校与圣殿骑士约翰·拉尔都被刺客所杀。[3]

1777年冬天,成为军官的乔治·戴维森率领部队驻扎在纽约开拓地的一座要塞中。但他和“合伙人”的合作引来了刺客艾弗琳·德·格朗普雷的注意,她在拉通哈给顿的帮助下找到了这位“戴维森军官”。尽管戴维森与部分手下身在要塞的瞭望塔里,艾弗琳还是顺利潜入了要塞,拉通哈给顿则引开了戴维森的援军。[4]

面对艾弗琳的质问,戴维森回答称只要他参加,亲英派就会保证他的自由。以戴维森为首的亲英派部队随后向艾弗琳发起进攻,但拉通哈给顿引发的爆炸分散了他们的注意。之后,戴维森把艾弗琳锁在了瞭望塔里,企图驾驶运输火药的马车逃离要塞。但是车上的火药桶起火爆炸,戴维森因此身受重伤。死前,戴维森向艾弗琳交待说,她的继母玛德琳·德·利斯尔就是那个“合伙人”。[4]

Missing Supplies 3

父子重逢

1778年,本杰明·丘奇被英军释放,随后窃取了大陆军的补给。拉通哈给顿受华盛顿委托前去寻找这些失窃的补给,因此遇到了前来除掉叛徒的父亲。父子两人发生了争执,海瑟姆向儿子坦白了圣殿骑士真正的目标。于是,两人决定联手追杀丘奇。他们一同来到纽约,却发现这只是个陷阱,丘奇已经逃往马提尼克。拉通哈给顿与海瑟姆驾驶天鹰号一路追击,最后登上迎宾号,杀死了丘奇。之后,拉通哈给顿又驾船攻击了盾狼号,击败了毕德尔,让毕德尔同盾狼号一同葬身于大海之中。[3]

海瑟姆与拉通哈给顿两人在联手时得知英军将从纽约发起攻势。海瑟姆想将这一情报告知查尔斯·李,而拉通哈给顿决定将情报告诉华盛顿。来到福吉谷后,海瑟姆为了揭露华盛顿的真面目,道出了18年前烧毁拉通哈给顿村子的真凶正是华盛顿这一事实。华盛顿还因为怀疑卡那泰圣顿的原住民与英军结盟而下令再次攻打这个村子。拉通哈给顿明白过来,他的父亲已经隐藏这个事实许久,于是他决定断绝与海瑟姆和华盛顿之间的往来。查尔斯·李向卡那泰圣顿的原住民告知了村子即将遭到袭击的事情,说服他们加入英军一方。他还欺骗了拉通哈给顿的朋友嘎纳多贡,让他以为拉通哈给顿已经背叛了他的同族人民。[3]

蒙茅斯战役中,查尔斯·李故意破坏了大陆军的战备,但大陆军士兵在拉通哈给顿的帮助下顺利撤退。事后,查尔斯·李被裁定为叛徒,遭到停职处理。[3]

1778年7月,怀俄明战役中,身为圣殿骑士的大陆军军官乔治·多伦斯迫使数个易洛魁人村庄迁移,后被刺客刺杀。[3]

1780年8月,圣殿骑士成员,大陆军少将约翰·迪卡尔布在卡姆登战役中被刺客刺杀。[3]

ACIII-Laststand 18

海瑟姆死在儿子手中

1781年9月,拉通哈给顿来到纽约寻找查尔斯·李。查尔斯·李正藏在乔治堡中。在法军舰队的炮火轰击中,拉通哈给顿潜入了要塞,却被炮击所伤。随后,他遇到了自己的父亲。海瑟姆已让查尔斯·李带着大神殿的钥匙逃走。在一番直截了当的打斗之后,海瑟姆让儿子杀死了自己,查尔斯·李就此接任殖民地分册的最高大师。[3]

至少三个月后,1782年,海瑟姆·肯维的葬礼在查尔斯·李的主持下开始了。但这场葬礼被突然闯入的拉通哈给顿打断了。查尔斯让人抓住了拉通哈给顿,自己去做前往波士顿的准备。最后,拉通哈给顿追上了他。经过一番艰苦的追逐后,受伤的拉通哈给顿找到了查尔斯·李,在蒙茅斯最后一杯酒馆杀死了他,取走了大神殿的钥匙。查尔斯·李的死标志着殖民地分册的崩塌。从此,圣殿骑士组织在北美的势力一时间销声匿迹。[3]

艾德蒙·佐志在某个时间点加入了圣殿骑士组织。到1784年,他已脱离圣殿骑士的组织,按照自己的规则生活工作。最后,艾弗琳·德·格朗普雷在佩瑟丝·吉伯斯的帮助下杀死了他。[5]

1785年8月,圣殿骑士成员,康涅狄格总督乔纳森·特朗布尔被刺客刺杀。[3]

狼人是一个美洲原住民,与圣殿骑士有合作关系,在18世纪时杀死过一位刺客兄弟会导师。[3]

1794年,弗雷德里克·韦瑟罗尔联系了改组而来的圣殿骑士组织美国分册,发出呼吁请求他们支持被推翻的德·拉塞尔家族弗朗索瓦-托马·日耳曼及其麾下的激进派系对抗。美国分册尽管对此事深表同情,却没有提供任何帮助,同时因为巴黎分册顺畅运作,埃莉斯·德·拉塞尔只能寻求边际利益上的支持。但日耳曼似乎已经联络过那些人,让他们认同了推翻德·拉塞尔家族的行为。[6]

During the 1860s, at the start of the American Civil War, the American Rite of the Templar Order was under the control of Grand Master William M. Tweed. Tweed was the "boss" of Tammany Hall, the Democratic Party political machine, through which he directly influenced the Confederate States of America. In order to regain a stronger position over the Assassins since their eradication during the American Revolution, the Templars hoped to create chaos in the political climate to reclaim power.[7]

To this end, Tweed orchestrated the New York City draft riots with the aid of Templars controlling the police and the army. Templar agent Cudgel Cormac managed to influence the New York gangs to instigate chaos and mayhem. The Grand Master knew the rioters would eventually turn against the black citizens of the city, which conflicted with his own opposition to race segregation, but was deemed a necessary evil to realize their goals.[7]

After Tweed received intel the Assassins intended to locate a Dagger of Eden, one of the prongs of the Trident of Eden, the Grand Master sent Cormac to intercept them and acquire the artifact. Cormac was unable to succeed in his mission and was stopped by the Assassin Varius and his ally Eliza, Tweed's maid.[7]

The Assassins handed the Dagger of Eden to General Ulysses S. Grant to turn the civil war in the favor of the Union against the Confederacy.[7] The Templars later ordered John Wilkes Booth to kill President Abraham Lincoln of the Union in April 1865. Booth himself was killed by the Assassins the same month.[8]

After Grant's 1868 election as President of the United States, the Templar Order infiltrated his administration. The Templars helped Grant master the powers of the Dagger, by granting him access to a Precursor box and pages of the Voynich manuscript.[9]

“In 1937, we founded this company, this enterprise, with a purpose. The time to nurture it to fruition is upon us.”
―An Abstergo employee, in a message to Templars around the world, 1944.[来源]
Ford Edison Firestone1

A group of Templars during the formative years of Abstergo, including Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone

In the early 20th century, the Templars created capitalism as a means to keep the working population in line and under their own tight control. The Templars Henry Ford and Ransom Eli Olds created the assembly line, and economist John Maynard Keynes created several new theories and forms of economics based on capitalism. Harvey Firestone, founder of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, was also a member. Throughout the 20th century, the Templars made use of puppet regimes and rulers to spread capitalism throughout the world, with the ultimate goal being the eventual collapse of democracy, creating an ideal situation for the Templars to introduce a New World Order.[8]

In the 1900s, Nikola Tesla, a former employee of Templar Thomas Edison, invented the alternating current of electricity, which was more efficient than Edison's direct current. In addition, Tesla was also in possession of an Apple of Eden, which he planned to use to create a free information network across the entire world.[8]

The Templars however, most prominently Edison himself, opposed his ideas, as they would be a serious impediment to the Templar goals and Edison's own ideals. To this end, Edison demonstrated a series of experiments, such as the electrocution of a circus elephant that he released, as proof of Tesla's power being dangerous, causing public disapproval towards Tesla's invention. Along with his smear campaign, Edison also influenced his fellow Templar J.P. Morgan to cut funding for Tesla's famous Wardenclyffe Tower. As Tesla's credibility began to falter, Edison rose to prominence, with his innovations outshining his competitor's.[8]

In November 1910, the Templars Frank A. Vanderlip, Paul Warburg, Charles Norton, Benjamin Strong, Jr., Henry Pomeroy Davison and Nelson W. Aldrich met in secret on Jekyll Island, where they designed the "Plan", a plot to control the capitalist market.[8][10]

In December 1913, the Federal Reserve was established, and was secretly the first part of the "Plan".[11][10]

Some time later, Edison came into possession of the Apple after Templar agents had stolen it from Tesla's lab, and used it to help him create several commercially successful inventions. He later allowed his fellow Templar Henry Ford to use the Apple. On 5 January 1918, Ford announced that his company would pay its workers $5 per day. However, the supposed pay rise was actually a paycut, as Ford has used the Apple to convince his workers otherwise.[8]

In 1937, the formulators of the Plan established Abstergo Industries as a front for their activities. This enabled them a means to accumulate wealth and accelerate scientific progress, and largely anonymous, Abstergo's leadership claimed their duty was to "shepherd those beneath us through life, even if force is required".[11]

第二次世界大战编辑

“H. has [the Apple of Eden], so I assume the war will begin as soon as he can take over. We'll let him have his fun (Lord knows, that kind of purge will be good for Europe) and then end it with a bang, as planned. Out of the chaos of war a new order will emerge!”
―Henry Ford in a letter to Thomas Edison, 1930s.[来源]

In 1933, Ford shipped the Apple to Germany to pass it onto Adolf Hitler, who would go on to become the leader of Nazi Germany, laying the groundwork for the Second World War. During the war, the Templars used Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was the U.S. President at that time, as their secret puppet. Their intention for the company was to act as a global conglomerate secretly dominating the capitalist market in the wake of the war, and to dismantle communist governments.[11]

However, by 1943, the Templars had lost control of Roosevelt and their other puppets, who each had their own ideas for the world's future. As a result, the Inner Sanctum decided to develop an atomic weapon to give victory to the Americans. However, Templar physicist John von Neumann proposed a more peaceful solution with the Rainbow Project. Using his theories on Die Glocke, an early version of the Animus, von Neumann believed it could allow them to alter the course of history and kill Hitler before his rise to power.[12]

Agreeing to a temporary alliance with U.S. Colonel and Assassin Boris Pash, the Templars allowed von Neumann to subsequently work with Pash and Nikola Tesla on the USS Eldridge on Project Rainbow. However, the rogue Assassin Eddie Gorm killed Tesla on board the ship, setting the project back. It was ultimately a failure, and the Templars moved von Neumann to the Manhanttan Project to improve the Allies' position over the Axis.[12]

By 1944, Abstergo and the Templars were prepared for the inevitable post-war era, where they would "ensure the development continues in the proper direction", and used the Bretton Woods Conference in July of that year as a cover for a meeting between their economic agents, including John Maynard Keynes and Harry Dexter White. On the last day of the conference, a speech was given to Abstergo Industries employees, economists, and world leaders, mentioning the formation of the "Plan" by Henry Ford and Ransom Eli Olds in 1910 and the threat presented by the communist system, as well as the efforts of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin to create the "turmoil and fear necessary" for the implementation of the new economic systems.[11]

In 1945, Abstergo sanctioned the Manhattan Project's tests of the atomic bomb, and on 6 and 9 August of that year two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan.[8] Amidst the resulting chaos of the war, the Templars were able to guide the world's economic rebuilding towards the goals of their New World Order.[11]

冷战编辑

“Democracy must die to ensure the stability of the world. Capitalism will end it. [...] The capitalists will do whatever we tell them to. We print the dollars they worship after all.”
―An unknown Templar regarding their plans to dismantle democracy.[来源]

Following the war, White betrayed the Templar Order in order to warn the Soviet Government of Abstergo's capitalist plans, making him a top target of the company. In 1948, Abstergo operatives killed him in his home.[11]

PL-MILLIONAIRE'S ROW

Abstergo agents in Pasadena

On 17 June 1952, agents from Abstergo Industries discovered that American rocket propulsion researcher Jack Parsons had solved a secret formula from occultist Aleister Crowley. To stop Parsons' research, they orchestrated the explosion of his laboratory in Pasadena, with Parsons himself still inside. Parsons died soon after of his injuries, and Abstergo agents kidnapped undercover detective Thomas Sean Morgan to cover their tracks.[13]

During the 1950s, the Templars and Abstergo manipulated the CIA's actions in favor of their plans for a New World Order, notably through toppling democratic governments around the world and replacing them with Templar-influenced dictatorships. This resulted in the orchestration of the 1953 coup against the Iranian prime minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in order to place Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi into absolute power as well as the 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état in order to depose democratically elected Guatemalan President Jacobo Árbenz.[11]

“HQ has given the go-ahead to extract the resource. Negotiations are over. F. is planning to give the vote to everyone. Reason just doesn't work with someone like that.”
―An Abstergo agent sanctioning Operation: New Frontier, Kennedy's assassination, in a letter, 1963.[来源]

In 1963, Abstergo Industries aimed to remove President John F. Kennedy of the United States, as Kennedy did not serve Abstergo's interests. As a result, the company sanctioned his assassination, with the intent to install their puppet, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, as the new President.[8] Unbeknownst to the Templars, Assassins under the leadership of the Assassin extremist Boris Pash had infiltrated their ranks to hijack the conspiracy.[14]

After Assassins from the Bloodstone Unit killed Kennedy and framed the Templars' shooter Lee Harvey Oswald,[14] the Assassin William Greer – a CIA agent whom Abstergo trained for the mission with Apple of Eden #2 to bring them Kennedy's Apple[8] – took the artifact to secretly bring it to Pash, but was halted by fellow Assassin Alekseï Gavrani. Despite the loss of the Apple,[14] Kennedy's assassination paved the way for NASA, one of Abstergo's puppet companies, to organize the Apollo 11 spaceflight and allow Templar Buzz Aldrin to retrieve another Apple of Eden from the Moon's surface.[8]

In 1973, Abstergo Industries wanted to overthrow the communist government of President Salvador Allende of Chile to maintain control over Chile's corporations, which Allende wanted to nationalise. In a plot devised by Abstergo's puppet Henry Kissinger, Allende was overthrown and killed, and the Templars' puppet Augusto Pinochet was installed as the leader of a new military junta.[11]

In 1983, Abstergo Industries orphaned and kidnapped a young boy, who they brought to their Philadelphia facility. Where Warren Vidic began to experiment on Subject 4 of the Animus Project, a young boy who would later be named "Daniel Cross." Placing Daniel in the Animus to relive the memories of his ancestor.[15] Using a replicated Piece of Eden,[11][15] Warren embedded Daniel with a subconscious impulse to assassinate the Mentor of the Assassin Order, were he ever presented with the opportunity.[15]

In 1986, Alan Rikkin lead a team of Templar agents to capture members of the Lynch family to find an Apple of Eden as they had discovered that their bloodline lead to the Spanish Assassin Aguilar de Nerha. When they arrived, Mary was dead, killed by Joseph Lynch to prevent the Templars from finding it and Callum Lynch escaped. Joseph was captured while his son ran away.[16][17]

During the late 1990s, the Templars and Assassins were engaged in a solely political war for the Presidency, with the Templars using George W. Bush as their puppet and the Assassins supporting candidate Al Gore.[15]

On 6 November 2000, Daniel Cross was granted an audience with the Mentor of the Assassin Brotherhood and, in a split moment, acted upon his impulse and murdered him.[15]

Fall 3 Daniel Abstergo

Daniel returning to the Abstergo facility in Philadelphia

On November 21, Daniel eventually made his way back to the Abstergo research facility in Philadelphia. As soon as he arrived there, Daniel demanded that he be returned to the Animus; though it was only after an attack on an unfortunate secretary that Warren Vidic became convinced of his urgency. Daniel was placed into the Animus to freely explore the memories of his ancestor, Nikolai Orelov, which had a calming effect on Daniel himself.[15]

Daniel was soon taken out of the Animus and tied to a medical bed. Under the supervision of Alfred Stearns and other high ranking Abstergo employees, Dr. Sung was forced to extract information from Daniel by administering SK-345 into him. Daniel subconsciously revealed the locations and secrets of the Assassin hideouts he had visited over the past two years, allowing Abstergo to initiate the "Great Purge", which nearly annihilated the entire Assassin Brotherhood.[15]

GreatPurgeOverview

The Templars overseeing the Great Purge

During the Great Purge, Assassin compounds in South Dakota, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas were located and destroyed by Abstergo.[18] Nearly all Assassins within their camps, including children, were massacred by military agents under order of Abstergo Industries.[15]

Without the Assassins' interference, the Templars were able to steer the election in their desired direction and Bush was assigned as President of the United States.[15] Following the controversial 2000 presidential election, the Supreme Court heard the case Bush v. Gore, where the Court was asked to decide whether to allow a recount of the votes in the State of Florida or order the certification of the election in favor of Bush. Templar ally Justice Antonin Scalia convinced fellow Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the swing vote on the Court, to rule in favor of Bush, appealing to her desire to retire under a Republican president.[11]

The Templars spent the next several years routing out Assassin cells and safehouses. By 2002, various Assassins, including Paul Bellamy, were captured by Abstergo. Abstergo induced the subjects into a coma and bound them to Animi in the company's Philadelphia facility, where they explored the genetic memory of their ancestors.[19]

In 2003, the Templars manipulated the Bush administration into starting the Iraq War in order pave the way for Dick Cheney's military contractors to accept jobs from the government and escalate the war further. As a result, Templar influence spread, and Cheney was able to strengthen the American armed forces, ensuring the war would continue. Abstergo also utilized the administration's loose regulation of the private sector to gain more influence.[11]

Upon the resignation of O'Connor in 2005, Scalia ensured that President Bush was given the name of Templar John Roberts as her replacement. However, following the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist less than two months later, Bush renominated Roberts to the position of Chief Justice. In 2010, the Roberts-led Court ruled against limitations on corporate contributions to political campaigns. This decision ensured the ability of Abstergo Industries to elect their chosen candidates to Congress and, eventually, the presidency.[11]

Sometime before October 2011,[20] in an underground Abstergo Industries facility beneath Denver International Airport.[21] Daniel Cross[22] was the Project Lead on an experiment involving the Eye-Abstergo satellite, however Daniel fell under the influence of the project's Apple of Eden and killed everyone in the facility before the company's clean-up crew had arrived and the artifact was ultimately destroyed. Dr. Warren Vidic was responsible for preparing the final report of the incident.[21]

As of 2014, there was a Grand Master operating in the United States. That year, Alan Rikkin sent a memo to Gramática informing him that, if they proceeded with his plan to excavate the Observatory located in Long Bay, Jamaica and retrieve the missing blood vials, which Gramática considered to be of critical importance to the Phoenix Project, he would contact the Grand Masters in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States to get a read on the situation.[23]

In 21 October 2016, Dr. Sophia Rikkin had Callum's execution staged and brought him to the Abstergo Foundation. A Templar run initiative led by Sophia Rikkin in Madrid, Spain.[16]
