An assassin was a combatant specially trained in the art of stealth killing. Good assassins were highly regarded by various major political entities, particularly the Great Houses.
Significance[edit | edit source]
The assassin's role was of particular importance due to the concept of a War of Assassins - a series of warfare restrictions incurred by The Great Convention and Guild Peace. Assassins, with their expert knowledge of poison and other discreet methods of murder, were responsible for the deaths of many prominent figures, especially during the Corrino Empire.
