"Do you remember, Altaïr, what it is the Assassins fight for?"

"Do you remember, Altaïr, what it is the Assassins fight for?"

"Peace, in all things."

With Odyssey seemingly focusing on "freedom vs. order," it strikes me that the Assassin/Templar war has been dumbed down a little as the series has gone on. The ideological conflict has never been about freedom vs. order, full stop. Instead the conflict has been about one goal shared between both groups: peace.

What follows are the three great ironies of the Assassin Order: (1) Here we seek to promote peace, but murder is our means. (2) Here we seek to open the minds of men, but require obedience to a master and set of rules. (3) Here we seek to reveal the danger of blind faith, yet we are practitioners ourselves.

The conflict has always been how to achieve said peace.

Altaïr: [Robert de Sable] dreamed of power then?

Al Mualim: Yes and no. He dreamed and still dreams, like us, of peace.

Altaïr: But this is a man who sought to see the Holy Land consumed by war!

Al Mualim: No, Altaïr. How can you not see, when you're the one that opened my eyes to this?

Altaïr: What do you mean?

Al Mualim: What do he and his followers want? A world in which all men are united. I do not despise his goal, I share it. But I take issue with the means. Peace is something to be learned, to be understood, to be embraced.

Altaïr: He would force it.

Al Mualim: And rob us of our free will in the process.

The Assassins believe that true peace can and should only be achieved through education, gentle guidance, and time. They believe that humanity holds the potential to reach this ideal largely on its own, because the Assassins are basically optimists.

Ezio: Look at this city, the center of Borgia and Templar rule. Killing one man will not change things. We need to take away the source of their power.

Machiavelli: Are you suggesting we appeal to the people?

Ezio: Maybe.

Machiavelli: Relying on the people is like building on the sand.

Ezio: You are wrong. Our belief in humanity rests at the heart of the Assassin Brotherhood.

This belief in humanity is where the freedom aspect comes in. The Assassins think that if given freedom, humanity won't abuse it, but instead will use it responsibly.

Haras: You put too much faith in the hearts of men, Altaïr. The Templars know the truth. Humans are weak, base, and petty.

Altaïr: No. Our Creed is evidence to the contrary.

But the Assassins don't believe in freedom as an end. They understand that freedom can be dangerous and abused, and thus with freedom comes responsibility

Sofia: You mentioned a Creed before. What is it?

Ezio: Nothing is true, everything is permitted.

Sofia: That is rather cynical.

Ezio: It would be if it were doctrine. But it is merely an observation of the nature of reality. To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

And

Arno: The Creed of the Assassin Brotherhood teaches us that nothing is forbidden to us. Once, I thought that meant we were free to do as we would. To pursue our ideals, no matter the cost. I understand now. Not a grant of permission. The Creed is a warning. Ideals too easily give way to dogma. Dogma becomes fanaticism. No higher power sits in judgment of us. No supreme being watches to punish us for our sins. In the end, only we ourselves can guard against our obsessions. Only we can decide whether the road we walk carries too high a toll. We believe ourselves redeemers, avengers, saviors. We make war on those who oppose us, and they in turn make war on us. We dream of leaving our stamp upon the world...even as we give our lives in a conflict that will be recorded in no history book. All that we do, all that we are, begins and ends with ourselves.

And so the Assassins strive to educate and guide people, believing that doing so will be enough to spur humanity to set aside its violent and hateful tendencies, and achieving peace between peoples. This has been recurring throughout the series, but I'm worried with Odyssey, the conflict has sort of lost itself. It seems like Ubisoft plans on taking the Assassins down the generic freedom fighter route, rather than something deeper and more complex.

I haven’t played anything after 3 yet, but just going from 1 to 2 saw the post kill scene discussion reduced dramatically. Altaïr’s theory on kindness towards the enemies and his philosophical talks with them before death were an amazing story device that they didn’t use to it’s full potential.

The post-kill scenes were some of the best moments in the games. They simultaneously showed the humanity and ideals of your targets, and made you think that the Assassin/Templar war wasn't so black and white.

Origins is much worse for this, though it's understandable given that Bayek's motivation is purely revenge. He just tends to scream at them a bit.

"SHADYA!"
