The Templar Order (Templars)
Shrouded in secrecy, the Templar Order has worked for untold centuries with the singular goal of bringing humanity under the uncontested control of an intellectual elite, by any means necessary. Believing that a free humanity is doomed to suffer chaos and destruction, The Order has worn many faces – including the seemingly devout Knights Templar of the Middle Ages and the far-reaching multi-national Abstergo Corporation of modern day – throughout history to accomplish its goals.
In the quest for control of human civilization, Templars have fanatically pursued the mythical Pieces of Eden, fragments of technology from an ancient civilization that would give them the power to establish themselves as the uncontested masters of the human race. The persistent Assassin Brotherhood has kept this fate at bay but now the dangerous Templar Order is stronger than ever and the future of humanity has never been in greater peril.
