Dive into the Inquisition and witch hunts in Renaissance France with Assassin’s Creed!
- The Inquisition is raging across Europe, massacring thousands of men and women on charges of witchcraft. Raised in the Landes region of France, Margaux and Ermeline, 16 and 17 years old, are initiated by their adoptive mother Catherine into the practices of healing. While her younger sister flourishes in this simple life, Ermeline dreams of something more, of settling in town, far from the forests of south-west France.
This peaceful life comes to an end when Catherine, denounced for witchcraft by a patient, is taken to Bayonne with her eldest daughter by Pierre de Lancre, a master inquisitor and Templar in search of an ancient artefact. The two girls witness their mother being burned at the stake: Ermeline as a hostage of the Templars, Margaux watching from hiding. Distraught, Margaux is taken in by Nicodemus, an Assassin close to Catherine, who will train her in the Creed, while the anger of the French people ferments against the Inquisition.
Separated, the two sisters must mourn their happy youth, but also decide which path to take and which destiny to join. Assassin or Templar? The path of blood, or the path of the heart?
