For centuries, the order of the Knights Templar have searched for the mythical Apple of Eden. They believe it contains not only the seeds of man's first disobedience, but the key to the free will itself.
What is it?
-The machine? It's genetic memory. By using the Animus, we can relive lives of those who made us who we are.
What I saw in there, it felt real.
-It was. In a way.
Tell my father that I'll see him in hell.
You're in a rehabilitation wing of Abstergo Foundation in Madrid, a private organization dedicated to the perfection of human kind. With your help, we can pioneer new ways to eradicate violence.
What do you want from me?
-Your past. Listen to me carefully, Cal. You're about to enter the Animus. What you are about to see, hear and feel, are the memories of someone who has been dead for 500 years.
Looking back it's clear that a history of the world is history a violence. Last year the economic impact of antisocial behavior was 9 trillion dollars. We believe that man today experiences a measure of aggression which he finds no acceptable outlets. Now imagine if all these costs could be channeled elsewhere...
We've won. People are no longer care about their civil liberties, they care about their standard of life. The modern world has outgrown notions like freedom. They are content to follow. The threat remains while free will exists. For centuries we try with religion, with politics and now consumerism to eliminate dissent. Isn't it the time we gave a science a try?
Hallucinations are what we call the "bleeding effect." Images of your regression, laying themselves over your present day field of vision. If you allow me, I can teach you how to control them.
I know everything about you, Cal. Your medical data, your psychological profile, the mutations in your MAO-A gene. I know about the foster homes. The juvenile homes. You are a living proof of the link between heredity and crime.
-How did you find me?
We found Aguilar. When you were arrested, your DNA matched his.
-Who is Aguilar?
Your ancestor. His family were Assassins. They were burnt at the stake by the Templars, Torquemada and the black night you saw, Ojeda. Aguilar took up the Assassins' cause.
The Bible tells us it contained the seed of man's first disobedience. But there are those of us who believe that God or some ancient civilization have left us a road map to understand why people are violent.
I thought I was here to be cured.
-Violence is a disease. Like cancer. And like cancer, we hope to control it one day.
Violence is what kept me alive.
-Well technically, you're dead.
Assassins and Templars have been at war for centuries. I aim to change that.
-That's right, I forgot. We're here to combat aggression. I don't think I like your methods.
I am a scientist. I'm here to be cured of violence.
-Who's gonna cure you?
You're your mother's son.
-What does that mean?
Blood that flows through you is not your own. Belongs to the Creed. Your mother knew that. She died so the Creed may live.
The Apple contains the genetic code for free will. They will use it to destroy us.
-I'm gonna find it. And watch them destroy you and your Creed.
You can not kill the Creed. It's in your blood. The Apple is everything. Your mother died to protect it.
=She had no choice. I do.
For decades, you have lived in the world torn apart by religious discord. But soon, thanks to God and Inquisition we will purge this disease! The sinners before you, sought to defend the heretic prince of Granada, the last heathen stronghold in our holy war.
Do you know how the Assassins came to be named? From an Arabic word "Hashashin". They were society's outcasts. Those who stole, who murdered in cold blood. People ridiculed them... Rebels, fools, drug addicts. But they were wise. They used this reputation to hide the dedication to principles beyond those of even their strongest enemies. And for that I admire them. But you're not one of those men. Are you?
Here lies the seed of man's first disobedience, of free will itself. Thanks to the Apple of Eden, the known world shall be ushered into a new age. One of peace, in which all the warring populations of mankind shall bow in perfect obedience to our one Templar rule. The Apple.
Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember... Nothing is true. Where other men are limited by morality or law, remember...-Everything is permitted. We work in the darkness to serve the light. We are Assassins.
If we eradicate free will, we eradicate the Assassins. A cancer that has menaced society for centuries. It's not my best work, but it gets the point across. We've been looking for solutions. You've eliminated the problem.
-So my program...
Has brought order to society for the first time.
With the recovery of the Apple, we are now in possession of the complete genetic road map to humanity's instincts. Any impulse towards independence, resistance or rebellion will be crushed. Any predisposition that might oppose our march of progress can now be eradicated.
I'm here to help you. And you're here to help me.
-I can't help you anymore.
What about all those great plans? Cure violence, combat aggression.
-That's not going to happen. You've started this,
Sophie. You don't get to walk away. We both know what happens next. Not everything deserves to live.
-I can't do this.
Yes, you can.
