黑鸦部队Crows)是由圣殿骑士切萨雷·博吉亚建立的秘密组织,透过复制刺客的技术来消灭刺客。作为反刺客专家的单位,他们对于隐身、伪装以及谋杀非常内行,这些技能不只用于猎杀刺客,也会对付其他切萨雷的敌人。在他们的巅峰时期,他们的存在恐吓着托斯卡纳的平民百姓。

正如他们的名字一样,他们大量使用了黑鸦的主题,而他们的领袖希鲁斯·法费罗被称为黑鸦大师或"伊寇尔弗"。他们与博吉亚家族一同享受着恶名,但是随着时间的推移,他们累积了不少权力,他们与上级组织的分歧越来越大。当刺客们开始对他们展开攻势时,他们已经被圣殿骑士们列为叛变组织。在他们的最后一年,他们发起了一场雄心勃勃的运动,以一同摧毁博吉亚和刺客,但他们也因这鲁莽的行为付出了死亡的代价。

历史编辑

起源编辑

在1495年至1498年之间的某个时候,切萨雷·博吉亚开始寻找一种方法来建立一个专门对付意大利刺客的圣殿骑士部队。他构思着部队会使用刺客那如此致命的技巧和战术。为此,他找了一些孤儿送到瓦隆布罗萨修道院并欺骗了经验老手的西班牙刺客拉斐尔·桑切斯为他们接受刺客的训练长达五年以上。当切萨雷判断他们的训练完成之后,他就任命他的盟友希鲁斯·法费罗担任这个团体的新领袖,而这团体被他命名为「黑鸦部队」。希鲁斯开始为他们灌输圣殿骑士团的教义。希鲁斯将每位成员视为自己的儿子,并将这团体视为家庭,他试着培养他们坚定的忠诚度。[1]

之前的1500年,在切萨雷征服完刺客的城市蒙特里久尼后不久,他派遣的特务皮耶特罗·德·加仑西亚奥迪托雷别墅地下室偷走了袖剑的蓝图。切萨雷计画为黑鸦部队複製这武器并量产。皮耶特罗花费了几年的时间,因为他需要将自己融入这座城市才能了解城市的秘密。他最终完成了任务,儘管他在逃脱到安全处之前被刺客杀害。[1]

然后,切萨雷将蓝图交给了一名叫迪米崔尔武器匠,并强迫他发明袖剑的升级版「鸦爪刃」。当迪米崔尔拒绝继续製作鸦爪刃时,切萨雷割掉舌头当作惩罚,并刑囚了好几天。[1]

被刺客揭发编辑

Equipped with the Corvix Blades, the Crows were able to emulate the killing techniques of the Assassins, striking their prey from the shadows or under cover. From 1503 to 1506, they exploited these skills not only in their assassination of Cesare's enemies, but also on hapless peasants throughout Tuscany. Despite their status as a covert force, they frequently launched brutal raids against villages and farms, massacring civilians for sheer sport. Such stories reached the ears of Niccolò Machiavelli of the Assassins, but he was slow to react. It would not be until the Crows threatened the life of Leonardo da Vinci one day near the Basilica di Santa Croce that they finally piqued the Assassins' notice.[1]

A couple of years later in 1506, Lo Sparviero, the same Assassin that had saved Leonardo's life recovered a pair of Corvix Blades—alongside the stolen Hidden Blade blueprints—in Rome. A while later, he rescued a man who plotted to murder Cesare but failed and was scheduled for execution. This man, Demetrio il Silente, was in fact the scientist forced by Cesare to create the Corvix Blades, and he confirmed that the weapon retrieved by Lo Sparviero was a prototype of the blades. He shared with the Assassins all that he knew of the Crows, including the history, origins, and Cesare's reasons for its foundation.[1]

渗透刺客编辑

Sometime afterwards, the Crows took over the Colosseum, where they were receiving a large shipment of Corvix Blades and Crow uniforms. The Assassins took heed and sent Lo Sparviero to investigate. Matteo Favero, Sirus' son and a Crow Leader, was killed at the top of the Colosseum by the Assassin, and the Crows were forced to evacuate when more Assassins invaded the camp. There, the Assassins captured Sirus, who claimed to be only a weapons merchant forced to work with the Crows and that he despised Cesare.[1]

The latter was not technically false: in the years prior, tensions had escalated between Sirus and Cesare owing to disagreements over ideology and direction of the group. By the time of his capture, Sirus had come to loathe Cesare, who declared that his organization had gone rogue in turn. Sirus entered into Machiavelli's confidence, proving his loyalty by helping the Assassins sabotage the Borgia's plans on numerous occasions, a matter that did not conflict with his goals. All the while, he plotted the day he would take revenge against the Assassins for the death of his son.[1]

Weeks into his infiltration, Lo Sparviero recovered a ledger from one of Cesare's personal bookkeepers. Using a special decryption device provided by Sirus, Machiavelli was able to decipher the ledger, learning for the first time that the Crows were led by a man called Il Corvo. Months later, with the Assassins no closer to discovering the identity of this leader, Sirus advised that they might find a lead by intercepting the letters delivered by Borgia messengers to the Crows.[1]

两面三刀的暴露编辑

Meeting with Lo Sparviero at the Castel Sant'Angelo, Sirus identified one of these Borgia messengers, who Lo Sparviero swiftly killed for his package. He handed it to Sirus as requested, but when the merchant instructed him to then lay low while he located the Crow hideout, the Assassin found this exceedingly suspicious and began following him. Whether this had been Sirus's plan or not, he was well aware that Lo Sparviero was tailing him and lured him into an ambush by his Crow Leaders. The Assassin slew all the Crows and chased after Sirus, who proclaimed his thirst for vengeance before escaping using his tricks. Eventually, Lo Sparviero was forced to return home as he lost track of the Crow Master.[1]

最后的行动与毁灭编辑

Now exposed as Il Corvo, Sirus began his grand preparations for a major assault against the Assassins. He sent letters to all his members spread out across the region summoning them to Rome, where they were to rally for their climactic operation. Once most of his forces had arrived, he fortified himself at the Castel Sant'Angelo, sending his agents out to attack the Assassins and their allies throughout the city before his enemies had a chance to group.[1]

The Crows' sudden onslaught seemed to assure a decisive victory. The Assassins had received advanced intelligence of their plan, but had not been quick enough to act against it; Machiavelli himself had arrived in Rome only on the day of the attacks. Though he had only been able to summon one Assassin, Lo Sparviero, this proved enough. While Sirus commanded his forces from the entrance to the castle, believing that his reinforced bridge would be adequate defense, Lo Sparviero sneaked to him by traversing underneath it.[1]

The Assassin surprised him and his bodyguards and killed all of them. Despite outnumbering the Assassins with an army, the Crows' morale broke and many surrendered. The Borgia forces began to assert authority, destroying the Crow hideout shortly after the Assassins raided it. With this defeat, the Crows dissolved as an organization, with the few survivors fleeing to Forlì where they would be eliminated shortly afterwards.[1]

组织编辑

Originally a special branch of the Templar Order, the hierarchy of the Crows was simple, composing only of two ranks: Initiates and Crow Leaders. While Initiates wore plain black clothes over their armor, only the Crow Leaders were permitted to wear their iconic crow-feathered uniforms and wield the Corvix Blades.

The Crow forces also consisted of more conventional soldiers, all whom donned the group's black color scheme. These soldiers were modeled after the Borgia army and comprised specialized units such as crossbowmen, Agiles, and Brutes. By the time of their final operation, they also incorporated a sizable number of Papal Guards in their ranks.

技能和策略编辑

Conceived as a counter-Assassin unit of the Templars, the Crows were trained firsthand in the martial arts unique to their adversaries. They were meant to be a shadow organization who, like their enemies, achieved their aims through assassination. For that reason, they mirrored the Assassins' agility and expertise at stealth and evasion.

So successful was their replication that they outsmarted even the Assassins on various occasions, eluding their detection for the first several years while they pillaged farms on the countryside. Their aptitude for disguise was uncanny; Assassin agents could not even identify any of the Crows without the aid of Eagle Vision even when they were wearing their trademark crow-feathered clothes. Having received direct instruction on the tactics of the Assassins, their agents often knew when to expect an Assassin on their tail or how to detect one. It was a common strategy of theirs to feign ignorance before luring the Assassin into a trap.

In their assaults on commoners throughout Tuscany, their favored tactic was to materialize out of the darkness and launch a swift but brutal assault before their victims had a chance to compose their defenses. They would employ a similar strategy of shock and awe in their last attempt to overwhelm the Assassins.

装备编辑

Iconic to the Crows were the Corvix Blades, modified Hidden Blades identified by the head of a crow carved deep into their blades. Aside from this weapon, they wielded exotic swords and were distinguished by their uniforms: jet-black leather armor, decorated with crow feathers and complete with a small cloak. Only the Crow Leaders were entitled to the signature uniform and Corvix Blades, and most of the regulars in their army utilized the conventional weapons and armor of their day.

琐事编辑

  • In Assassin's Creed: Identity, Crows encountered in the cities in disguise wear black or dark grey versions of normal civilian clothes. Upon being identified by Eagle Vision or when they spring their attack, their outfits morph into their full, feathered battle armor.
