rashid ad din sinan

I don’t like the vast majority of Templars, and it’s not because their Templars. It’s because they are doing horrible things, only a few I can look at and say “okay, I actually like him/her.” That’s not to say I can’t appreciate them as a good antagonist, there are Templars I hate as charters but are amazing antagonists (Ceaser Borgia, Al Mulailim, and Crawford Starrick) but there have only been three Templars I love as characters, Elise, Roth, and Haytham. In that order.

I must say Rashid ad-Din Sinan is quite a clever Mentor, he used the Levantine Assassins to kill every Templar he found the Apple Of Eden with so he could get the Holy Land for himself. A Mentor of the Assassins aiming to enslave everyone, not many bad Mentors after him has pulled of something bad without being being able to hide it like him. He’s one of a kind. But wasn’t he a Templar? No, he was an ally of the Templars(in secret) until he betrayed them. He never was one, it’s a common misunderstanding.

I can’t believe Ubisoft just ignored the history of the real historical Assassins after Rashid Ad-Din Sinan. They missed so many opportunities.

After Sinan was a man named Abu Mansur. Abu Mansur sent deputies to welcome Count Henry of Champagne who passed on his way from Acre to Antioch, near the territories of the Assassins, and to invite him to visit his fortress on his return.

I’m not sure about it, but I’d love to see an AC game with Umar Ibn-La'Ahad (yes, Altair’s father) as the main protagonist.
I think it’d be a nice way to see the Brotherhood before all the changes, and maybe another side of Al Mualim (or Rashid ad-Din Sinan)

Not to mention little kids of Altair, Malik, Abbas and Kader! That’d probably be so cute!
