The Great Altaïr Ibn La'Ahad has returned from his 10 year departure from Masyaf, only to find it colored with disappointment and astray, lack of discipline, and despair in the faces of the loyal adherents of the once great order. Altaïr was baffled, and demanded to investigate the cause of these turmoils. Altaïr had appointed Malik Al-Sayf as Grand Master during his 10 year departure. However now Malik seems nowhere and the order crumbled with laziness, most of the Assassins restricted from the castle. Altaïr knew this was the work of the wretched Abbas; seeking retribution over the humiliation he caused himself in 1,191. Moreover, Altaïr demanded to see his son Saif, only to realize he is missing with Malik. Altaïr and his wife Maria, encountered a weak minded Assassin named Sawami, who greeted them as if they were unimportant visitors. Later, Altaïr discovered that his best friend Malik, and his son Saif had been murdered, probably by Abbas who took the chance and took the order to suit his whims. Altaïr was furious after the Templar attack on Cyprus, since Abbas sent no reinforcements; it was a calamity. Altaïr and Maria furiously demanded answers from Abbas and his members, who deviated from the question and ordered Altaïr to surrender the Apple. Altaïr -though capable of slaughtering them on sight- handed the Apple, and so Abbas sent Sawami to fetch it. However, the weak minded Assassin - with a low voice - revealed to Altaïr that he had executed Saif after telling him that his own father (Altaïr) had ordered it. Now Altaïr - though always controlling his anger - went furious and used the Apple to let Sawami slit his own throat. In the process he did not see Maria in front of him telling him to stop the Apple, and Sawami suddenly stabbed Maria in the back. Altaïr instantly shoved his blade in Sawami's neck and crouched to Maria's dying body, then she uttered her last words: "Strength, Altaïr...".
Altaïr got up feeling the world ebbing away, killed all of the Assassins responsible whom were frightened by the fact that Altaïr can use the Apple anytime. The cowardly Abbas was seen nowhere, but regardless Altaïr escaped Masyaf with his son Darim who just arrived. The both took their horses to escape... Altaïr extremely devastated will no doubt return and murder Abbas, and in the process rectifying the vulnerable order. Only question is when? That will undoubtedly frighten everyone.
