assassin's creed: the chain

One of my favorite Assassins is Nikolai Andreievich Orelov, mainly because he was forced to become an Assassin against his will, yet he was able to live a free life once he had a chance to get away before they returned and threatened to kill son after they kidnapped his wife and daughter. Resulting in his death by the hands of his own son so his son could survive when they sent several Assassins to kill him. All because he choose to be free, the Assassins hunted him down either way(the irony). He’s a tragic Assassin forced to be a crusader in a war he never wanted to be part of or die.
