Lee Camara, a woman known for her many wonderful cosplay prop designs and and subsequent productions, sometimes also takes the time out to don her own creations, this time putting on one highly detailed costume and assuming the identity of the enigmatic assassin Altair, from the fantastic Assassin’s Creed series.
Altair Ibn-La’Ahad (meaning Flying One – Son of no One) is the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed. He is of course an assassin born in 1165 and who lived during the third Crusade. He was born the son of a Muslim Arab father Umar Ibn-La’Ahad and a Christian Syrian mother who died during childbirth. During his childhood he left for Masyaf, Syria in order to begin his Assassin training.
Altair felt little at the death of his parents due to the nature of the Assassin order. Prior to the events of the series, Altair trained under Al Mualim, Master of the Assassin Brotherhood, quickly rising above his brethren in the abilities of mastering several weapons and skills ranging from hand to hand combat to sword fighting. This caught both Al Mualim’s eye and favor, and Altair was quickly promoted to the rank of Master Assassin.
All of which means that he was thus the perfect candidate to have his memories solicited by Abstergo through the use of Desmond and the Animus in their attempt to find the Piece of Eden.
And now you know.
