'''Maria Thorpe''' (1161 – 1228) was an [[England|English]] noblewoman living during the Middle Ages, who joined the [[Templars|Templar Order]] prior to the [[Third Crusade]]. She is an ancestor to [[Desmond Miles]], through the [[Desmond Miles' mother|maternal line]].<ref name="AC4">''[[Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag]]'' – [[AE files:CONFIDENTIAL - Subject - RE: Potential time periods?|CONFIDENTIAL - Subject - RE: Potential time periods?]]</ref>

After developing a strong relationship with the [[Grand Master of the Templar Order|Grand Master]] [[Robert de Sablé]], she was eventually given a high-ranking position within the Order. In 1191, once the [[Assassins|Assassin]] [[Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad]] killed eight Templar agents spread throughout the Holy Land, Maria was assigned by Robert to act as his decoy, to trick the Assassin into assailing the wrong target. The plan was a success, though Altaïr chose to spare Maria's life.

玛利亚 索普('''Maria Thorpe)'''(1167-1227)是一个生活在中世纪的英国女贵族。她在第三次十字军东征时期加入了圣殿骑士。在被圣殿骑士抛弃之后,她在她原来的敌人刺客组织中找到了庇护。
 
   
在她和阿泰尔(Altair)在塞浦路斯的行动之后,两人在一起定居了下来。他们的血脉最后会传到戴斯蒙德 迈尔斯(Desmond Miles)身上。
+
Robert was ultimately killed shortly thereafter, and his replacement, [[Armand Bouchart]], did not favor Maria. He did not find transport for her when the Templars moved to [[Cyprus]], and before she could plan her own way there, she was defeated and captured by Altaïr.
   
==生平==
+
Unwillingly giving information to Altaïr and escaping her captors several times, Maria began to realize that the Templars' ambitions were not beneficial for humanity, and slowly grew closer to Altaïr. Eventually, she and Altaïr infiltrated the [[Templar Archive]] in [[Limassol]], where she faced off against Bouchart alone. Though she was defeated, Altaïr was able to assassinate the Grand Master and escape the crumbling Archive with Maria.

在她小时候,玛利亚有些叛逆,行为举止和男孩无异。正因如此,她的父母也经常惩罚她。
 
   
在第三次东征之前,她的父母逼着她出嫁,但这段婚姻只持续了一年多。这种耻辱,再加上玛利亚自己对荣耀的向往使得她离开英国,加入了正在东征的十字军。
+
She then followed Altaïr to the Assassins' fortress in [[Masyaf]], where they settled down and had two children together. Several years later, Maria, Altaïr and their son [[Darim Ibn-La'Ahad|Darim]] went on a journey to assassinate the [[Mongol Empire|Mongol]] leader [[Genghis Khan]], while her younger son [[Sef Ibn-La'Ahad|Sef]] remained behind.
   
===圣殿骑士===
+
Maria was killed in 1228, during [[Abbas Sofian]]'s ''coup d'état'' against her husband, by the blade of [[Swami]].

在那个年代,女人很少参加战斗,所以玛利亚女扮男装,混入了军队。她在军队中的表现十分出色,最后赢得了圣殿骑士的领袖罗伯特 德 塞布尔(Robert de Sable)的欣赏。

  +
Maria was born in {{Wiki|Leicester}}, England in 1161. In her early years, Maria chose not to follow the social norm for women of her age, and instead acted and dressed in a tomboy-like fashion. Because of this, she was often pestered as a child, and punished by her parents.<ref name="TSC" />
   
  +
Before the start of the Third Crusade, her parents forced her to marry Lord [[Peter Hallaton]] after her 18th birthday. Uninterested in the duties of a châtelaine, Maria left Peter's company after four years of marriage, and an annulment was carried out. This disgrace, combined with Maria's own dreams of honor and glory, convinced her to leave England behind and join the [[Crusaders]] in the Holy Land.<ref name="TSC" /><ref name="Initiates" />

===Joining the Templars===

  +
As it was uncommon for women to participate in combat during this time, Maria often disguised herself as a man. She showed much promise amongst the Crusaders, and attracted the attention of Robert de Sablé, a Crusader lieutenant and the Grand Master of the Knights Templar.<ref name="TSC" />
   
虽然罗伯特发现了玛利亚的真实性别,他还是支持她,并让她留在身边当私人助理。虽然玛利亚并不怎么赞同罗伯特的一些观点,但仍然对他十分尊重,甚至愿意为他而死。
+
Despite learning her true gender later, Robert supported her and even appointed Maria his personal steward. Although she did not share her Master's beliefs, Maria respected Robert enough to do anything for him, even forfeit her life if necessary.<ref name="TSC" />
   
某一天,罗伯特给了玛利亚一枚戒指。这枚戒指在后来成为了玛利亚和圣殿骑士唯一的纽带。
+
At one point, Robert gave her a ring as a gift, which Maria cherished and kept close. She would later treasure it as her only remaining link to the Templars.<ref name="Intercept Kyrenia" />

===Robert's decoy===

[[File:AC1 Robert Decoy.png|thumb|left|250px|Maria, disguised as Robert, looking to the crowd]]
1191年,在8个圣殿骑士都被刺客阿泰尔杀死之后,罗伯特准确得猜到了他是下一个目标。
+
Following the [[Hunt for the Nine|deaths of eight powerful Templars]] in 1191 at the hands of Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, Robert correctly reasoned that he was next on the Assassin's list. Not one to be defeated, Robert publicly announced his intention to attend the funeral of the late Regent of [[Jerusalem]], [[Majd Addin]], as a show of mutual cooperation and respect between Muslims and Crusaders. Privately however, the Templar Grand Master knew that this would be a chance too desirable for the Assassin to pass up. Thus, Maria was left to take Robert's place at the funeral, posing as a decoy in wait for Altaïr.<ref name="assassination robert">''[[Assassin's Creed]]'' – [[Assassination (Robert de Sable)]]</ref>
   
罗伯特随即设下了一个圈套。他首先高调宣布他将要参加刚刚死亡的耶路撒冷摄政王马吉德 阿丁(Majd Addin)的葬礼,表示基督徒和穆斯林之间的友好关系。但私下罗伯特知道刺客们肯定不会放过这次机会的,便让玛利亚装扮成自己,参加葬礼。
+
As expected, the Assassin appeared during the funeral procession, and Maria carefully examined the gathering of guests to spot him. She signaled the funeral proctor to Altaïr's presence, and a great number of Templars were ordered to seize him.<ref name="assassination robert" />
   
正如罗伯特所预料到的,阿泰尔如期来到了葬礼。玛利亚还成功地在人群中找到了阿泰尔,并派圣殿骑士将他包围。
 
 
[[File:AC1 Funeral Fight.png|thumb|250px|Altaïr fighting Maria and the Templars]]
 
[[File:AC1 Funeral Fight.png|thumb|250px|Altaïr fighting Maria and the Templars]]
阿泰尔杀出了重围,最后抓住了玛利亚,取下了她的头盔。这时他才发现这个人不是真的罗伯特。玛利亚又坦白,罗伯特已经去了阿尔苏夫(Arsuf),和伊斯兰教徒讲和,并准备围攻马西亚夫(Masyaf)。因为阿泰尔杀的八个圣殿骑士中既有穆斯林,也有基督徒。
+
Surprised but composed, Altaïr overpowered the soldiers, pinned Maria to the ground and removed her helm. Discovering her to not be Robert, Altaïr was greatly shocked that it was a woman he had fought, and questioned it as sorcery. Maria corrected him by saying that it was not, and revealed that she was in Robert's place as a distraction, mentioning that the success of Altaïr's Brotherhood in taking the [[Apple of Eden 2|Templar treasure]] and eradicating her comrades had not gone unnoticed.<ref name="assassination robert" />
   
出乎意料的,阿泰尔并没有像杀死其他人一样杀死玛利亚,而是警告她不要跟上来。玛利亚却傲慢地说她并不需要,因为阿泰尔是不可能阻止罗伯特。
+
Maria continued, revealing that Robert had headed to [[Arsuf]] to propose a truce between the [[Saracens|Saracen]] and Crusader armies, in order to besiege the Assassin fortress of [[Masyaf]]. As the Templars Altaïr had killed came from both sides of the conflict, the Assassins were now their common enemy.<ref name="assassination robert" />
   
===塞浦路斯===
+
Though Maria thought she would be the ninth of the Templars to die at the Assassin's hand, Altaïr rebutted her, sparing her life but warning her not to follow him. Maria replied haughtily that she did not need to, and that it was futile for him to try to stop Robert.<ref name="assassination robert" />

[[File:ACBL Assault 8.png|thumb|left|250px|Altaïr interrogating Maria]]
 
[[File:ACBL Assault 8.png|thumb|left|250px|Altaïr interrogating Maria]]
在阿泰尔杀死罗伯特和阿尔 穆林(Al Mualim)之后的一个月,玛利亚在圣殿骑士中被降级了,并且被禁止和她的同伴去塞浦路斯。她和阿泰尔又在阿卡(Acre)的一次行动中见面,两人打了起来。
+
A month after Altaïr had killed both Robert and [[Al Mualim]], Maria's standing with the Templars had deteriorated considerably. It was only as the Templar fleet left [[Acre]] for Cyprus that Maria was informed Robert's replacement, Armand Bouchart, had not arranged a means for her to travel with the others of her Order.<ref name="Assault Maria">''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Maria Thorpe)]]</ref>
   
阿泰尔最终胜过了玛利亚,并审问她关于塞浦路斯行动的信息。然后,阿泰尔把玛利亚作为囚犯带着,一起到了塞浦路斯,希望能够用玛利亚吸引圣殿骑士出来。
+
After she dismissed the messengers, musing on the opportunity she had lost, Altaïr appeared to speak with her. She confronted the Assassin, and the two of them engaged in another [[sword]] fight. Ultimately, Altaïr bested her, and interrogated Maria about the Templars' plans for Cyprus. While she revealed little, the Assassin elected to take her prisoner, hoping to use her as leverage to lure other Templars out into the open.<ref name="Assault Maria" />
   
两人到了利马索尔,和刺客线人亚历山大碰了面。玛利亚被关在刺客据点里,但是在一次圣殿骑士的袭击中逃了出去,还把据点烧着了。
+
The two of them traveled to [[Limassol]], where Altaïr met with his Assassin contact, [[Alexander of Limassol|Alexander]]. Maria was escorted to and kept at the resistance safe house, but escaped following an ambush by Templars, during which the building was set on fire.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Investigate (Cypriot Resistance Safe House)]]</ref>
   
玛利亚急忙地赶到圣殿骑士的领袖阿尔芒 布沙尔(Armand Bouchart)那里,告诉他关于阿泰尔的事情。但是阿尔芒对玛利亚两次从刺客组织手里逃出感到怀疑,再加上他天生对女人的不信任,最终把玛利亚关到了牢里。
+
Maria hurried to warn Bouchart of Altaïr's presence in Limassol, but he responded with suspicion to Maria's second "miraculous" escape from the Assassins. Maria claimed innocence and attempted to reason with him, becoming angry when Bouchart suggested that she, as a woman, was Robert's undoing. Bouchart ignored her pleas, ordering her to be locked away in prison.<ref name="Intercept">''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Intercept (Limassol Cathedral Square)]]</ref>
   
阿泰尔则打败了看守她的狱卒,并把她救了出来。这时,玛利亚却告诉阿泰尔,她发誓要杀了阿泰尔。但阿泰尔却跟她讲道理,说给圣殿骑士最好的礼物不是他的头,而是伊甸苹果。
+
Maria was led away by two Templar [[guards]], only to be saved by Altaïr. Enraged at her present situation, she vowed to kill him once the opportunity arose. Altaïr reasoned with her, noting that the best way to regain the Templars' favor was not with his head, but through the recovery of the Apple of Eden. Seeing the logic of his claim, Maria reluctantly returned to Altaïr's custody.<ref name="Intercept" />
   
  +
===Journey to Kyrenia===
 
[[File:Intercept Kyrenia Harbor 1.png|thumb|250px|Maria and Altaïr conversing aboard the ship]]
 
[[File:Intercept Kyrenia Harbor 1.png|thumb|250px|Maria and Altaïr conversing aboard the ship]]
阿泰尔又带着玛利亚上了去凯里尼亚的船。在船上,阿泰尔跟玛利亚讲述了关于恩培多克勒的哲学理念,说“只有自由的思想才能欣赏这个世界无秩序的美”。
+
Altaïr then took Maria with him on a ship to [[Kyrenia]]. While on the vessel, he inquired about her life and motivation to join the Crusaders.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Delivery (Limassol Port)]]</ref> Maria told him of her childhood in England and her previous marriage, noting that her ideal husband would embrace her masculine personality and interests, a standard which her former husband did not meet. She also revealed that, while she had cared for Robert, she knew he had exploited her and believed that his death was fitting.<ref name="TSC" />
   
虽然玛利亚对他的观点表示抗拒,但还是有兴趣地问到,能够欣赏‘无秩序的美’是否是人们想要的。阿泰尔承认自由会带来的一些苦难,但却说“圣殿骑士所期待的秩序和和平是建立在屈从和禁锢之上的”。被阿泰尔当做囚犯“禁锢”着的玛利亚觉得这似乎有些讽刺。
+
Altaïr spoke to her about the philosophy of [[Empedocles]], saying that "only a mind free of impediments is capable of grasping the chaotic beauty of the world". Although Maria resisted his ideology, she did take interest in it, inquiring as to whether "chaotic beauty" was truly something to be celebrated. Altaïr in turn claimed that while freedom did bring hardship, it was worth preserving. He maintained that "the [[New World Order|order and peace the Templar seek]] requires servility and imprisonment", a statement which the captive Maria found to be ironic.<ref name="Intercept Kyrenia">''[[Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines]]'' – [[Intercept (Kyrenia Harbor)]]</ref>
   
在上岸时,阿泰尔把绑着玛利亚的绳子切断了,这样她才能从船舱爬到甲板上。但是他们却遇到了“载”他们来的海盗。玛利亚趁机把阿泰尔踢到了梯子下面,让他和那些海盗打,自己却逃走了。
+
As the two prepared to disembark, Altaïr cut the rope binding Maria's wrists so that she would be able climb the ladder to the upper deck. At that moment, the two were recognized and attacked by some of the pirates who had ferried them. Maria used the opportunity to kick Altaïr down the ladder, forcing him to face their attackers alone and allowing her time to escape.<ref name="Intercept Kyrenia" />
   
但是玛利亚却在逃跑的过程中遇到了更多的海盗,最后被马科斯(Markos)救了下来。阿泰尔发现马科斯是塞浦路斯的反圣殿骑士组织的一份子,便放心的把玛利亚交到了他的手上。
+
However, Maria's freedom was short-lived: she was also attacked by members of the large crew, and saved by [[Markos (Cypriot)|Markos]] before Altaïr caught up to her. Because of his honesty and their common dislike of Templars, Altaïr entrusted Markos with Maria's care, and asked him to look after her.<ref name="Intercept Kyrenia" />
   
在他的调查当中,阿泰尔发现“公牛”(他的目标)不仅在通缉他,也在通缉玛利亚。由于担心她的安全,阿泰尔赶回了港口,救下了被圣殿骑士攻击的玛利亚和马科斯。之后又把他们带到了刺客据点。
+
During his investigations, Altaïr learned that "the Bull" – his target – had posted large bounties for both him and Maria.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Interrogation (Jonas)]]</ref> Fearing for her safety, Altaïr rushed back to the harbor, where he found her and Markos being attacked by Templars. After rescuing them, Altaïr brought them to the Kyrenia safe house.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Kyrenia Harbor)]]</ref>
   
又一次沦为阶下囚的玛利亚嘲笑阿泰尔准备刺杀“公牛”(Moloch)的计划十分粗糙,却不慎的泄露了他的信息。阿泰尔由此知道他住在坎塔拉(Kantara)城堡。当阿泰尔成功回来时,却发现在一次公牛的儿子萨利姆(Shalim)的士兵为萨利姆搜刮女人的行动中,玛利亚被劫走了,刺客据点也被洗劫了。
+
Maria mocked Altaïr's crude plan for killing "the Bull" – whom she knew as [[Moloch]] – and inadvertently gave away his position in [[Kantara Castle]].<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Kyrenia Commons)]]</ref><ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Moloch)]]</ref> By the time Altaïr returned from killing him, Maria had been taken away by Templar agents, who had raided the safe house in his absence.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Kyrenia Market)]]</ref> Maria was given to Moloch's son [[Shalim]], separated from the resistance members and Altaïr's attempts to rescue her.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault II (Kyrenia Harbor)]]</ref>
 
玛利亚被带到了萨利姆处,和反抗组织分开了,阿泰尔也没法救她。
 
   
 
[[File:Assault Shalim and Shahar 1.png|thumb|250px|left|Maria infiltrating Saint Hilarion dressed as a [[Courtesans|courtesan]]]]
 
[[File:Assault Shalim and Shahar 1.png|thumb|250px|left|Maria infiltrating Saint Hilarion dressed as a [[Courtesans|courtesan]]]]
玛利亚自己逃出了萨利姆处,并装扮成妓女偷偷来到了圣 伊拉里翁城堡。到达之后,她见到了萨利姆的兄弟哈尔(Shahar),询问他圣殿骑士对伊甸苹果的计划。哈尔则说圣殿骑士准备不惜一切代价建立秩序,即使这种秩序是建立在奴役之上的。
+
However, Maria escaped from Shalim and headed to [[Saint Hilarion Castle]] disguised as a consort, sneaking in via palanquin.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Escort (Kyrenia Harbor)]]</ref> On her arrival, she confronted [[Shahar]] in his private room, and demanded to know about the Templars' plan for the Apple of Eden. Shahar stated that the Templars would achieve order by any means necessary, even if that "order" became synonymous with enslavement.<ref name="Assault Shalim">''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Shalim and Shahar)]]</ref>
   
这时,阿泰尔在寻找萨利姆的行动中冲了进来,随即来的还有萨利姆。阿泰尔和玛利亚杀死了两人,不过玛利亚拒绝再帮他杀更多人。
+
Shahar grabbed her by her wrists as if to subdue her, but was interrupted when Altaïr burst in, searching for Shalim. Maria killed his two pursuers, but refused to fight beside him any further and fled.<ref name="Assault Shalim" />
[[File:Assault Armand Bouchart 3.png|thumb|250px|Bouchart knocking Maria out]]
 
我们不知道玛利亚怎么从凯里尼亚回到利马索尔的。阿泰尔独自回去了,并单独行动了一段时间。但是,在一次使用伊甸苹果安抚民众时,一个神秘的圣殿骑士想要抢走苹果。玛利亚出现并杀死了他。
 
   
虽然玛利亚并未完全相信阿泰尔行为的正义,她还是把阿泰尔带到了塞浦路斯的圣殿骑士档案室。在这里,她遇到了阿尔芒 布沙尔(Armand Bouchart),并被打昏了。
+
===Assisting Altaïr===
  +
Altaïr traveled back to Kyrenia on his own and carried on without Maria for a while. However, following his use of the Apple of Eden to quiet the rioting townspeople, it was Maria who killed the [[Armand Bouchart's agent|mysterious Templar agent]] intent on taking the Apple, stabbing him in the back.<ref>''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Investigate (Limassol Castle Courtyard)]]</ref>
   
在阿泰尔杀死了阿尔芒之后,他带着玛利亚逃出了档案室。然后她告诉阿泰尔她不想再当圣殿骑士了,也不想会英国了,而是想去东方看看。在阿泰尔的最后一篇日记中说道,他决定陪着阿泰尔。
+
[[File:Assault Armand Bouchart 3.png|thumb|250px|Bouchart knocking Maria out]]
  +
Although she remained distrusting of the righteousness of his motives, Maria led Altaïr to the [[Templar Archive]] hidden under Limassol Castle. There, she engaged Armand Bouchart in combat. However, Armand was an extremely skilled fighter and hurled Maria back, knocking her unconscious.<ref name="Assault Armand">''Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines'' – [[Assault (Armand Bouchart)]]</ref>
   
===定居===
+
After Altaïr defeated Armand, he and Maria managed to flee the Archive. She then told him that she no longer wished to be part of the Templar Order, and had no interest in returning to England. Instead, she intended to go east, as far as India or "the far edge of the world". When Altaïr claimed he would return to Masyaf and use the Apple to learn more of the world, she cautioned him, saying he was "tread[ing] a thin line" with its use.<ref name="Assault Armand" /> Regardless, when Altaïr expressed interest in accompanying her, she ultimately decided to travel with him to Masyaf.<ref name="TSC" />

回到马西亚夫(Masyaf)后,阿泰尔和玛利亚正式开始了他们的感情。1193年,他们在利马索尔,在马科斯的陪同下结婚了。

几个月后,他们的第一个儿子达利姆(Darim)出生了。两年后,第二个儿子瑟夫(Sef)也出生了。
+
Maria became romantically involved with Altaïr after traveling to Masyaf. In 1195, they were married in Limassol out of respect for the Cypriots who had made the island a key stronghold for the Order, with Markos as a guest of honor. Later that year, Maria gave birth to the couple's first child, a boy named Darim. Two years later, after the pair briefly visited Acre,<ref name="AC2">''[[Assassin's Creed II]]''</ref> their second child Sef was born.<ref name="TSC" />
  +
  +
Maria became a part of the Assassin Order, though there were still Assassins – such as Abbas Sofian – who secretly loathed Maria for being an outsider and an Englishwoman. They never fully accepted her, disregarding Altaïr's decision to bring her into the Order.<ref name="TSC" />
  +
  +
From that point onward, Maria and Altaïr became inseparable. She continuously supported Altaïr, with their only extended time apart being in 1204, when Altaïr tried to bring the Order to [[Constantinople]].<ref name="TSC" />
  +
  +
Maria initially tolerated Altaïr's use of the Apple during this time, and on one occasion asked him what he saw of their family's future in it. However, she eventually demanded that he relieve himself of it, saying it was taking control of him, a request Altaïr denied.<ref name="ACR">''[[Assassin's Creed: Revelations]]''</ref>

1227年左右,玛利亚、阿泰尔和达利姆准备去蒙古刺杀正在抑制刺客组织发展的成吉思汗。他们留下了马利克(Malik Al-Sayf)看守刺客组织。到了蒙古之后,一家人见到了刺客高曲兰(Qulan Gal)。当男人们计划杀死成吉思汗的时候,玛利亚则在后方,并在阿泰尔受伤回来时照顾他。

Around 1227, Maria, Altaïr and Darim began a journey to Mongolia to assassinate Genghis Khan – whose army was preventing the Assassin Order from expanding their influence – and leaving [[Malik Al-Sayf]] in charge of the Order.<ref name="TSC" /> Once there, the family joined with the Assassin [[Qulan Gal]]; while the two veterans infiltrated the Khan's camp, Maria and Darim covered them from a nearby hill.

However, Altaïr allowed himself to be seen and was attacked by a Mongol soldier, though Qulan killed the Mongol before he could raise the alarm. From there, Qulan safely escorted the injured Altaïr out of the camp, also rescuing a young novice who was captured while scouting the area, [[Nergüi]]. Joining Darim and Maria on the nearby hill, the five Assassins proceeded to compose another plan while Maria was tending to her husband's wound.<ref name="ACRef">''[[Assassin's Creed: Reflections]]''</ref>

The Assassins then devised to flush Khan out of his tent by setting the mongol camp ablaze with flaming arrows, and the latter did so after realizing the danger. After Darim, aided by Qulan Gal, successfully killed Genghis Khan while he was fleeing, the family headed back home to Masyaf. When they arrived, they found it completely different from when they had left.<ref name="TSC" />

[[File:New regime 1.png|thumb|250px|Maria along with Altaïr after their return from Mongolia]]
三人回来时碰到了斯瓦米(Swami)。斯瓦米告诉他们阿泰尔的第二个儿子瑟夫去了阿拉穆特(Alamut),马利克被囚禁了,现在一个以阿巴斯 索菲安(Abbas Sofian)为首的议会正控制着刺客组织。达利姆前往了阿拉穆特找他的弟弟。而阿泰尔和玛利亚被迫住在了西楼,而不是首领应该住的主楼。
+
Maria, Altaïr and Darim were greeted by Swami upon their return. He informed them that their son Sef had left for [[Alamut]], that Malik was imprisoned, and that a council had been formed to take control over the Order with Abbas Sofian at its head. Darim left for Alamut to retrieve his brother, and Maria and Altaïr were directed to a residence in the west side of the castle, instead of to the Master's tower.<ref name="TSC" />
   
第二天,两人去见了所谓的‘议会’,并看到议会成员都是些软弱的刺客。阿泰尔汇报了一下他在蒙古的经历。阿巴斯说马利克是因为杀死了他的儿子瑟夫而被囚禁的。阿泰尔怀疑这事情的真实性,便去把马利克带到他和玛利亚的住处。
+
The next day, the two met with the council, seeing that it was made up of the most weak-minded Assassins in the Order. Altaïr gave the council a summary of their journey, and Abbas revealed that Malik had been imprisoned for the murder of their son Sef.<ref name="TSC" />
   
马利克告诉他们是阿巴斯杀死了瑟夫又在马利克睡着时把凶器放在他的床上的。玛利亚和阿泰尔随即去见阿巴斯。
+
Returning to their assigned residence, Altaïr and Maria mourned their son's death, and thought on their next move. While a grief-stricken Altaïr was shaken enough to consider Abbas' account valid, Maria rebuked him; she claimed that the deed was obviously Abbas' doing, pointing out logical flaws and contradictions in his account, and shamed Altaïr for doubting Malik. When Altaïr responded with anger, she once again told him to destroy the Apple, saying it had made his mind too open to ridiculous considerations.<ref name="TSC" />
   
在见到阿巴斯的时候,斯瓦米进来了,并带来了一个麻布袋子。里面装的是马利克的头。
+
Now doubting the credibility of Abbas' story, Altaïr freed Malik from the fortress' prison and brought him back to their residence.<ref name="TSC" />
   
阿泰尔十分愤怒,而阿巴斯则告诉其他的刺客这正是阿泰尔无法再胜任首领职位的证据。阿巴斯命令阿泰尔交出苹果,不知为什么(根据官方小说,阿巴斯劫持了玛利亚以威胁阿泰尔),阿泰尔拿出了苹果。
+
===Confronting Abbas===
  +
{{Dialogue|Altaïr|I have to destroy Abbas.|Maria|But not for the purposes of vengeance, my love. For the Order. For the good of the Brotherhood. To take it back and make it great once more. If you can do that, and if you can let it take precedence over your own thoughts of revenge, the Order will love you as a father who shows it the true path. If you let yourself be blinded by anger and emotion, how can you expect them to listen when what you teach is the other way?|Altaïr and Maria about reclaiming the Order from Abbas.|Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade}}
  +
On the pair's return, Maria tended to Malik's wounds, and he informed the couple that Abbas had Sef killed and the murder weapon planted in his bed. Once Malik was asleep, Maria and Altaïr plotted a new course of action; Altaïr claimed he needed to destroy Abbas, to which Maria agreed, but emphasized that it be the good of the Order rather than revenge if he wished to win back the minds of his people. Deciding on a bloodless strategy, the two left to confront Abbas.<ref name="TSC" />
   
斯瓦米走上前去拿苹果,并小声告诉阿泰尔在瑟夫死前,他们告诉瑟夫是阿泰尔——他的父亲——要杀他的。阿泰尔十分愤怒,而这愤怒转移到了苹果上,当斯瓦米碰到苹果时,他的眼珠都跳出来了,嘴巴张大,里面有金光闪烁。玛利亚连忙大叫让阿泰尔控制自己。
+
They entered Masyaf and went to the courtyard to meet Abbas, who was with Swami and a group of other Assassins. Abbas told them that they would learn the reason of their son's death, but only if they gave him the Apple. Altaïr agreed, to Maria's surprise, and presented the artifact to Swami.<ref name="New Regime">''[[Assassin's Creed: Revelations]]'' – [[A New Regime]]</ref>

斯瓦米接着被苹果控制开始拿出匕首自残,当阿泰尔在玛利亚的呼唤中恢复理智的时候,斯瓦米摆脱了苹果控制,随之把匕首刺向了阿泰尔身旁的玛丽亚。阿泰尔抱着玛利亚,玛利亚临死前对她的丈夫喃喃道:“要坚强!”

“Everything I worked for in the Holy Land, I no longer want. And everything I gave up to join the Templars... I wonder where all that went, and if I should try to find it again.”
―Maria reflecting on her life after cutting her ties with the Templars, 1193.[来源]-[记忆]

Maria Thorpe (1161 – 1228) was an English noblewoman living during the Middle Ages, who joined the Templar Order prior to the Third Crusade. She is an ancestor to Desmond Miles, through the maternal line.[3]

After developing a strong relationship with the Grand Master Robert de Sablé, she was eventually given a high-ranking position within the Order. In 1191, once the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad killed eight Templar agents spread throughout the Holy Land, Maria was assigned by Robert to act as his decoy, to trick the Assassin into assailing the wrong target. The plan was a success, though Altaïr chose to spare Maria's life.

Robert was ultimately killed shortly thereafter, and his replacement, Armand Bouchart, did not favor Maria. He did not find transport for her when the Templars moved to Cyprus, and before she could plan her own way there, she was defeated and captured by Altaïr.

Unwillingly giving information to Altaïr and escaping her captors several times, Maria began to realize that the Templars' ambitions were not beneficial for humanity, and slowly grew closer to Altaïr. Eventually, she and Altaïr infiltrated the Templar Archive in Limassol, where she faced off against Bouchart alone. Though she was defeated, Altaïr was able to assassinate the Grand Master and escape the crumbling Archive with Maria.

She then followed Altaïr to the Assassins' fortress in Masyaf, where they settled down and had two children together. Several years later, Maria, Altaïr and their son Darim went on a journey to assassinate the Mongol leader Genghis Khan, while her younger son Sef remained behind.

Maria was killed in 1228, during Abbas Sofian's coup d'état against her husband, by the blade of Swami.

Biography

Early life

“I'm what they call the unusual one in my family. Growing up, I always preferred the boys' games. Dolls weren't for me, much to my parents' continued exasperation. I used to pull their heads off.”
―Maria about her youth.[来源]

Maria was born in Leicester, England in 1161. In her early years, Maria chose not to follow the social norm for women of her age, and instead acted and dressed in a tomboy-like fashion. Because of this, she was often pestered as a child, and punished by her parents.[2]

Before the start of the Third Crusade, her parents forced her to marry Lord Peter Hallaton after her 18th birthday. Uninterested in the duties of a châtelaine, Maria left Peter's company after four years of marriage, and an annulment was carried out. This disgrace, combined with Maria's own dreams of honor and glory, convinced her to leave England behind and join the Crusaders in the Holy Land.[2][1]

Joining the Templars

Maria: "Hallaton had demanded his bride price back but Father had already spent it. In the end I decided it was best for everyone if I left so I ran away to the Crusade."
Altaïr: "As a nurse?"
Maria: "No, as a soldier."
—Maria telling Altaïr how she joined the Crusades.[来源]

As it was uncommon for women to participate in combat during this time, Maria often disguised herself as a man. She showed much promise amongst the Crusaders, and attracted the attention of Robert de Sablé, a Crusader lieutenant and the Grand Master of the Knights Templar.[2]

Despite learning her true gender later, Robert supported her and even appointed Maria his personal steward. Although she did not share her Master's beliefs, Maria respected Robert enough to do anything for him, even forfeit her life if necessary.[2]

At one point, Robert gave her a ring as a gift, which Maria cherished and kept close. She would later treasure it as her only remaining link to the Templars.[4]

Robert's decoy

“We knew you'd come. Robert needed to be sure he'd have time to get away.”
―Maria talking about her act as a decoy.[来源]-[记忆]
AC1 Robert Decoy

Maria, disguised as Robert, looking to the crowd

Following the deaths of eight powerful Templars in 1191 at the hands of Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, Robert correctly reasoned that he was next on the Assassin's list. Not one to be defeated, Robert publicly announced his intention to attend the funeral of the late Regent of Jerusalem, Majd Addin, as a show of mutual cooperation and respect between Muslims and Crusaders. Privately however, the Templar Grand Master knew that this would be a chance too desirable for the Assassin to pass up. Thus, Maria was left to take Robert's place at the funeral, posing as a decoy in wait for Altaïr.[5]

As expected, the Assassin appeared during the funeral procession, and Maria carefully examined the gathering of guests to spot him. She signaled the funeral proctor to Altaïr's presence, and a great number of Templars were ordered to seize him.[5]

AC1 Funeral Fight

Altaïr fighting Maria and the Templars

Surprised but composed, Altaïr overpowered the soldiers, pinned Maria to the ground and removed her helm. Discovering her to not be Robert, Altaïr was greatly shocked that it was a woman he had fought, and questioned it as sorcery. Maria corrected him by saying that it was not, and revealed that she was in Robert's place as a distraction, mentioning that the success of Altaïr's Brotherhood in taking the Templar treasure and eradicating her comrades had not gone unnoticed.[5]

Maria continued, revealing that Robert had headed to Arsuf to propose a truce between the Saracen and Crusader armies, in order to besiege the Assassin fortress of Masyaf. As the Templars Altaïr had killed came from both sides of the conflict, the Assassins were now their common enemy.[5]

Though Maria thought she would be the ninth of the Templars to die at the Assassin's hand, Altaïr rebutted her, sparing her life but warning her not to follow him. Maria replied haughtily that she did not need to, and that it was futile for him to try to stop Robert.[5]

Journey to Cyprus

Knight: "Begging your pardon, but it might be better if you stayed in Acre."
Maria: "What is that? A threat?"
Knight: "It's a fair warning. Armand Bouchart is Grand Master now and he doesn't hold you in high regard."
Maria: "Why, you insolent... Very well, I'll find my own way to Limassol."
—A knight advising Maria to stay in Acre.[来源]-[记忆]
ACBL Assault 8

Altaïr interrogating Maria

A month after Altaïr had killed both Robert and Al Mualim, Maria's standing with the Templars had deteriorated considerably. It was only as the Templar fleet left Acre for Cyprus that Maria was informed Robert's replacement, Armand Bouchart, had not arranged a means for her to travel with the others of her Order.[6]

After she dismissed the messengers, musing on the opportunity she had lost, Altaïr appeared to speak with her. She confronted the Assassin, and the two of them engaged in another sword fight. Ultimately, Altaïr bested her, and interrogated Maria about the Templars' plans for Cyprus. While she revealed little, the Assassin elected to take her prisoner, hoping to use her as leverage to lure other Templars out into the open.[6]

The two of them traveled to Limassol, where Altaïr met with his Assassin contact, Alexander. Maria was escorted to and kept at the resistance safe house, but escaped following an ambush by Templars, during which the building was set on fire.[7]

Maria hurried to warn Bouchart of Altaïr's presence in Limassol, but he responded with suspicion to Maria's second "miraculous" escape from the Assassins. Maria claimed innocence and attempted to reason with him, becoming angry when Bouchart suggested that she, as a woman, was Robert's undoing. Bouchart ignored her pleas, ordering her to be locked away in prison.[8]

Maria was led away by two Templar guards, only to be saved by Altaïr. Enraged at her present situation, she vowed to kill him once the opportunity arose. Altaïr reasoned with her, noting that the best way to regain the Templars' favor was not with his head, but through the recovery of the Apple of Eden. Seeing the logic of his claim, Maria reluctantly returned to Altaïr's custody.[8]

Journey to Kyrenia

Intercept Kyrenia Harbor 1

Maria and Altaïr conversing aboard the ship

Altaïr then took Maria with him on a ship to Kyrenia. While on the vessel, he inquired about her life and motivation to join the Crusaders.[9] Maria told him of her childhood in England and her previous marriage, noting that her ideal husband would embrace her masculine personality and interests, a standard which her former husband did not meet. She also revealed that, while she had cared for Robert, she knew he had exploited her and believed that his death was fitting.[2]

Altaïr spoke to her about the philosophy of Empedocles, saying that "only a mind free of impediments is capable of grasping the chaotic beauty of the world". Although Maria resisted his ideology, she did take interest in it, inquiring as to whether "chaotic beauty" was truly something to be celebrated. Altaïr in turn claimed that while freedom did bring hardship, it was worth preserving. He maintained that "the order and peace the Templar seek requires servility and imprisonment", a statement which the captive Maria found to be ironic.[4]

As the two prepared to disembark, Altaïr cut the rope binding Maria's wrists so that she would be able climb the ladder to the upper deck. At that moment, the two were recognized and attacked by some of the pirates who had ferried them. Maria used the opportunity to kick Altaïr down the ladder, forcing him to face their attackers alone and allowing her time to escape.[4]

However, Maria's freedom was short-lived: she was also attacked by members of the large crew, and saved by Markos before Altaïr caught up to her. Because of his honesty and their common dislike of Templars, Altaïr entrusted Markos with Maria's care, and asked him to look after her.[4]

During his investigations, Altaïr learned that "the Bull" – his target – had posted large bounties for both him and Maria.[10] Fearing for her safety, Altaïr rushed back to the harbor, where he found her and Markos being attacked by Templars. After rescuing them, Altaïr brought them to the Kyrenia safe house.[11]

Maria mocked Altaïr's crude plan for killing "the Bull" – whom she knew as Moloch – and inadvertently gave away his position in Kantara Castle.[12][13] By the time Altaïr returned from killing him, Maria had been taken away by Templar agents, who had raided the safe house in his absence.[14] Maria was given to Moloch's son Shalim, separated from the resistance members and Altaïr's attempts to rescue her.[15]

Assault Shalim and Shahar 1

Maria infiltrating Saint Hilarion dressed as a courtesan

However, Maria escaped from Shalim and headed to Saint Hilarion Castle disguised as a consort, sneaking in via palanquin.[16] On her arrival, she confronted Shahar in his private room, and demanded to know about the Templars' plan for the Apple of Eden. Shahar stated that the Templars would achieve order by any means necessary, even if that "order" became synonymous with enslavement.[17]

Shahar grabbed her by her wrists as if to subdue her, but was interrupted when Altaïr burst in, searching for Shalim. Maria killed his two pursuers, but refused to fight beside him any further and fled.[17]

Assisting Altaïr

Altaïr traveled back to Kyrenia on his own and carried on without Maria for a while. However, following his use of the Apple of Eden to quiet the rioting townspeople, it was Maria who killed the mysterious Templar agent intent on taking the Apple, stabbing him in the back.[18]

Assault Armand Bouchart 3

Bouchart knocking Maria out

Although she remained distrusting of the righteousness of his motives, Maria led Altaïr to the Templar Archive hidden under Limassol Castle. There, she engaged Armand Bouchart in combat. However, Armand was an extremely skilled fighter and hurled Maria back, knocking her unconscious.[19]

After Altaïr defeated Armand, he and Maria managed to flee the Archive. She then told him that she no longer wished to be part of the Templar Order, and had no interest in returning to England. Instead, she intended to go east, as far as India or "the far edge of the world". When Altaïr claimed he would return to Masyaf and use the Apple to learn more of the world, she cautioned him, saying he was "tread[ing] a thin line" with its use.[19] Regardless, when Altaïr expressed interest in accompanying her, she ultimately decided to travel with him to Masyaf.[2]

Settling down

“Some two years after the events I've described, they were wed at Limassol. [...] This represented a mainly peaceful and fruitful period for the Master. He talks of it little, as though it is too precious to bring out into the light.”
Niccolò Polo explaining Maria and Altaïr's marriage to his brother, Maffeo.[来源]
AC2 Altair Maria

Maria and Altaïr, after having conceived Sef

Maria became romantically involved with Altaïr after traveling to Masyaf. In 1195, they were married in Limassol out of respect for the Cypriots who had made the island a key stronghold for the Order, with Markos as a guest of honor. Later that year, Maria gave birth to the couple's first child, a boy named Darim. Two years later, after the pair briefly visited Acre,[20] their second child Sef was born.[2]

Maria became a part of the Assassin Order, though there were still Assassins – such as Abbas Sofian – who secretly loathed Maria for being an outsider and an Englishwoman. They never fully accepted her, disregarding Altaïr's decision to bring her into the Order.[2]

From that point onward, Maria and Altaïr became inseparable. She continuously supported Altaïr, with their only extended time apart being in 1204, when Altaïr tried to bring the Order to Constantinople.[2]

Maria initially tolerated Altaïr's use of the Apple during this time, and on one occasion asked him what he saw of their family's future in it. However, she eventually demanded that he relieve himself of it, saying it was taking control of him, a request Altaïr denied.[21]

Journey to Mongolia

“Darim was in his early twenties and an accomplished bowman, and so it was that Altaïr took him and Maria and left Masyaf.”
―Niccolò Polo explaining the journey to Mongolia to his brother Maffeo.[来源]

Around 1227, Maria, Altaïr and Darim began a journey to Mongolia to assassinate Genghis Khan – whose army was preventing the Assassin Order from expanding their influence – and leaving Malik Al-Sayf in charge of the Order.[2] Once there, the family joined with the Assassin Qulan Gal; while the two veterans infiltrated the Khan's camp, Maria and Darim covered them from a nearby hill.

Team mongolian

Maria assisting the Mongol Assassins

However, Altaïr allowed himself to be seen and was attacked by a Mongol soldier, though Qulan killed the Mongol before he could raise the alarm. From there, Qulan safely escorted the injured Altaïr out of the camp, also rescuing a young novice who was captured while scouting the area, Nergüi. Joining Darim and Maria on the nearby hill, the five Assassins proceeded to compose another plan while Maria was tending to her husband's wound.[22]

The Assassins then devised to flush Khan out of his tent by setting the mongol camp ablaze with flaming arrows, and the latter did so after realizing the danger. After Darim, aided by Qulan Gal, successfully killed Genghis Khan while he was fleeing, the family headed back home to Masyaf. When they arrived, they found it completely different from when they had left.[2]

Return to Masyaf

New regime 1

Maria along with Altaïr after their return from Mongolia

Maria, Altaïr and Darim were greeted by Swami upon their return. He informed them that their son Sef had left for Alamut, that Malik was imprisoned, and that a council had been formed to take control over the Order with Abbas Sofian at its head. Darim left for Alamut to retrieve his brother, and Maria and Altaïr were directed to a residence in the west side of the castle, instead of to the Master's tower.[2]

The next day, the two met with the council, seeing that it was made up of the most weak-minded Assassins in the Order. Altaïr gave the council a summary of their journey, and Abbas revealed that Malik had been imprisoned for the murder of their son Sef.[2]

Returning to their assigned residence, Altaïr and Maria mourned their son's death, and thought on their next move. While a grief-stricken Altaïr was shaken enough to consider Abbas' account valid, Maria rebuked him; she claimed that the deed was obviously Abbas' doing, pointing out logical flaws and contradictions in his account, and shamed Altaïr for doubting Malik. When Altaïr responded with anger, she once again told him to destroy the Apple, saying it had made his mind too open to ridiculous considerations.[2]

Now doubting the credibility of Abbas' story, Altaïr freed Malik from the fortress' prison and brought him back to their residence.[2]

Confronting Abbas

Altaïr: "I have to destroy Abbas."
Maria: "But not for the purposes of vengeance, my love. For the Order. For the good of the Brotherhood. To take it back and make it great once more. If you can do that, and if you can let it take precedence over your own thoughts of revenge, the Order will love you as a father who shows it the true path. If you let yourself be blinded by anger and emotion, how can you expect them to listen when what you teach is the other way?"
―Altaïr and Maria about reclaiming the Order from Abbas.[来源]

On the pair's return, Maria tended to Malik's wounds, and he informed the couple that Abbas had Sef killed and the murder weapon planted in his bed. Once Malik was asleep, Maria and Altaïr plotted a new course of action; Altaïr claimed he needed to destroy Abbas, to which Maria agreed, but emphasized that it be the good of the Order rather than revenge if he wished to win back the minds of his people. Deciding on a bloodless strategy, the two left to confront Abbas.[2]

They entered Masyaf and went to the courtyard to meet Abbas, who was with Swami and a group of other Assassins. Abbas told them that they would learn the reason of their son's death, but only if they gave him the Apple. Altaïr agreed, to Maria's surprise, and presented the artifact to Swami.[23]

As Swami moved to take it, he informed them that prior to Sef's execution, he told Sef that Altaïr had ordered his death. Enraged, Altaïr then used the Apple's powers to freeze Swami, and drove the man to self-injury.[2][23]

Maria attempted to intervene, and was fatally wounded by Swami's hand in the ensuing frenzy. Altaïr took her in his arms, and she told him to be strong before passing away.[2][23]

Altaïr was haunted by the loss of Maria, and as he grew older he suffered nightmares about her death, confused by her absence. Twenty years later, Altaïr avenged her and their son when he retook Masyaf and killed Abbas with the Hidden Gun.[2][24]

Personality and characteristics

Altaïr: "But you're..."
Maria: "Adept at disguising myself as a man, yes. Did I have you fooled that day in the cemetery?"
Altaïr: "I knew you weren't de Sablé, but..."
Maria: "You didn't anticipate me being a woman. You see? Years of being boisterous finally paid off."
—Maria talking about her boisterous attitude.[来源]

Altaïr confronting Maria about Robert's whereabouts

At an early age, Maria was a dreamer, thinking about leaving England to find honor and glory in the Holy Land. During this time, she showed a certain amount of stubbornness, refusing to act as a lady, and insisting on answering her wanderlust to leave her homeland.[2]

She was a very determined person, driven to accomplish more within the Templar ranks. During her first encounter with Altaïr in Jerusalem, Maria presented a straightforward, merciless style of command, and acted arrogant and confident of Robert's cause.[5]

After the events in Cyprus, Maria's harsh and stubborn attitude toward Altaïr became more open and civil. Over time, she chose to side with him and the Assassins against the Templars.[25]

She also had a provocative side, as shown when she led Altaïr up a tower in Acre, beckoning him to kiss and make love with her.[20]

Trivia

  • Maria is a derivation of the Hebrew name מִרְיָם (Miryam), the meaning of which is uncertain; various possibilities include "sea of bitterness", "wished for a child" and "rebellious". It might also be derived from Egyptian terms mry, meaning "beloved" or mr, meaning "love".
    • Maria's maiden name Thorpe is a Middle English word meaning "hamlet, little village", derived from Old English thorp and Old Norse þorp, meaning "village".
  • If the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed II is connected with the PSP game Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines, the weapons of the defeated bosses in Bloodlines appear at the Villa Auditore. Maria's weapon was labeled as "Maria Thorpe's Longsword", which was the first mention of her surname.
  • Maria was able to wield a sword ambidextrously.[2]
  • Not only was Maria the first known female Templar to appear in the series, she was also the first Templar to be spared and assimilated into the rival Order.
  • Maria is never referred to by her name in Assassin's Creed.
  • Maria's database entry in Assassin's Creed: Revelations states that Altaïr killed Robert de Sablé in the year 1192.
  • Dressed as a decoy, Maria wore cloak clasps similar to the pin that Warren Vidic wore, featuring what is known as the Occitan cross.
  • Maria's reference to a Bishop of Leicester annulling her first marriage is historically inaccurate, because at the time, Leicester was part of the Diocese of Lincoln.
  • In 2015, her name was on a list of known British Assassins used by the Templar Isabelle Ardant.
