The Assassin is an Event unit from the Hidden Dagger event.

Historically Description Edit

The medieval Hashshashin or Assassins, did not have the manpower to engage enemy armies in open combat. Instead, they killed opposing leaders in a specific way that best served their purposes.

Specially trained Assassins called fida'in would disguise themselves and wait - sometimes years - for an opportune moment. When the time was right, the fida'in would attack the target at close range. Afterward they refused to flee, instead choosing to accept their fate. The goal was twofold: to show the Assassin's absolute devotion to their cause and to make opposing them such a terrifying prospect that potential enemies would prefer to leave them in peace.
