Summary Edit

Chapter 1 Edit

In 2020, Andrew was abducted by the crew of Abstergo Foundation in Manila, Philippines. Dr. Vedasto Driz Ibarra, a scientific researcher of the said Abstergo branch, used him for tracing his ancestor named Habagat during the pre-Spanish colonization in the Philippines until the permanent Spanish settlement in the country (the 1500s - 1570s). This mad scientist ordered his men to arrest his family to force him to agree on his project. During the synchronization of Animus, Andrew saw some glimpses such as historical events of the first civilization of Isu and human, the first settlement of Malay people, and the discovery of Sword of Eden called Golden Kampilan (Gintong Kampilan), and the partial event of Battle of Mactan.

In 1501, Habagat was born to his father Makisig, an army commander of Opong and his mother Lakambini, a merchant. He is a weak child showing his not capable to be a warrior of his land. However, when his mother died in 1516 which gives him encouragement to become a warrior despite being weak. The newly appointed leader of Opong Datu Lapu-Lapu seen his dedication and encouragement then he asked him to join in his army but he will undergo extreme training for one year. He became a member of Opong army when he defeated Bagyo, a warrior from Pilipul assigned by Datu Zula to challenge him in 1517.

Chapter 2 Edit

After defeating Bagyo in a freestyle fighting, Makisig finally recognized Habagat as a warrior of Opong and apologized for being a rude father to him. Afterward, they celebrate for his victory and become a new member of the Visayan Brotherhood of Assassins.

In 1517 in the country of Portugal, Ferdinand Magellan was an explorer who sought an expedition to Spice Island by crossing the ocean to the west. He requested that he may be awarded compensation to the Portuguese King Manuel I for the exploration of the island. They had a dispute with the king, so his request was not granted. Instead, he decided to go to King Charles of Spain to continue his expedition plan, and it was approved. He was accompanied by the Spanish Explorer Juan Sebastian de Elcano on five Spanish Ships namely Trinidad, San Antonio, Concepcion, Santiago, and Victoria. They carry Santo Niño (Child Jesus) with the Apple of Eden, which is their weapon to facilitate their conquest of the place they are going.

On March 28, 1521, Magellan's group landed on the island of Limawasa, part of the province of Samar. When they arrived on the island some men hired them to trade. They include native named Panglimang Awang or known by the Spanish as Enrique of Malacca from Malaysia. He was the one who spoke to the people of Limasawa because he was the only one who could speak the Malay language to express the Spanish purpose. They provided offerings such as porcelain as a tribute to foreigners until they met its chief Rajah Kulambo and came to terms with the fact that the two groups had agreed on an alliance.

After three days, the first mass of Christianity took place on the island of Limasawa under the leadership of Father Pedro de Valderrama. Everyone in Limasawa including Rajah Kulambo became Christians after the mass. They presented the Santo Niño or Christ Child as part of the mass ritual when it suddenly flashed with a powerful light that signaled Spanish control over the natives because all who saw it would change their minds, and they will be loyal to the Spaniards. Antonio Pigafetta, an Italian scholar and chronicler, often recounts the events of Magellan's expedition in a book to provide information on the island they are on when they return to Spain. Antonio had witnessed the change in people's thinking and behavior but could not understand why it happened so that the Santo Niño held by the Spaniards had become a mystery to him.

On April 7, 1521, Magellan's group traveled again with Rajah Kulambo to Sugbu, the largest island adjacent to Limasawa, to befriend the same Rajah named Humabon. When Magellan's group and Rajah Humabon's group met, they presented their offerings. Humabon's group was amazed that they had just seen unique offerings made from the time of the European Renaissance. The two first talked in a hut to talk intently. They want to ally with Rajah Humabon, yet, there was a challenging fight between a Spanish General Joaquin de Iglesias and the best warrior of Sugbu Bak-Olaw to test their exceptional ability. If the Spanish win, Rajah Humabon will accept their request, or else, they will have to leave the island. The fight ended with Spanish victory, and their condition was recognized.

Antonio continued his writing about their journey while he was resting in a hut. A man suddenly enters his residence and shoots him with a peculiar knife attached to his wrist. Antonio saw his ring finger was cut-off, and he had other weapons attached to his clothing. He introduces himself as Ignacio de Tierra, a Spanish Assassin descended from Aguilar de Nerha's group and has no intention of killing Antonio because he wants to know what the Spanish Templars are doing. Antonio agreed to find out their real plan, after hearing Ignacio's story about the Assassins and Templars.

Chapter 3 Edit

Antonio sent a letter to Ignacio about the Templars' plan in a few days. The letter states that the Magellan group will sail with Rajah Humabon to ally with Datu Zula and Datu Lapu-Lapu. Ignacio decided to go to the place they were going to. He needs to inform immediately the people about their plan.

On April 10, 1521, on this day Lapu-Lapu's group sailed with Habagat to Samar which is one of the largest islands found in this country to find the legendary weapon they call the Golden Kampilan. Upon arriving in a city called Biringan, a mysterious place of unique technology and civilization, they explored and found their way to the hidden Kampilan. They meet Apo Magyan at the camp of Biringan where the warriors are located after they go through the strange ordeal caused by the unnatural phenomenon. Apo recounts the first civilization called the time of the Isu. They are known as intelligent beings and are more capable than humans. They look like people but they are bigger than they are and they can know the future but in the short term. Humans and Isu live together until a time when humans have been sued for their abuse because they are being used as agents for their ambitions. Isu created artifacts that they call the Pieces of Eden to control them.

Suddenly the Animus desynchronized due to unknown malfunction then Dr. Ibarra first decided to postpone the project. Afterward, they locked Andrew in a room with other subjects. He met Serafin Jintalan Cabias, an Assassin, and spent a year as a prisoner in Abstergo, next to his bedroom. After a few days, the two learned that they were planning to escape from the other Assassins who had been detained here as they mingled in the canteen during lunch.

Chapter 4 Edit

Andrew and Serafin learned that some Assassin members were planning to flee from the facility and they were immediately arrested by Abstergo personnel. This is just one of the plans of the Assassins so they want to see the whole facility. They will make a real plan next week. The next day Andrew returned to Animus to continue the synchronization.

Back to the scene where they had a conversation with Apo Magyan regarding the previous civilization. Suddenly Lapu-Lapu cut the conversation out of his boredom and wanted to find the Kampilan. Apo accompanied them in the area where the hidden weapon was located. In the middle of their journey, Habagat noticed that the sky had changed to red and he felt something bad was happening to them.

Apo Magyan confronted them and his soldiers at once as they rushed to kill Lapu-Lapu and his men. The Lapu-Lapu's men fought in defensive mode but soon their battle formation is weakening due to the continuous receiving of arrows from opponents. Habagat began to have counter-attacks on the other side to destroy the enemy's formation. Apo Magyan confronted Habagat as he was alone in the fight. Habagat was unable to defeat the aggressive Apo Magyan and Lapu-Lapu helped him defeat it. Even Lapu-Lapu was difficult to knock out Apo but Habagat had a chance to stab his neck.

Chapter 5 Edit

Habagat entered in a memory corridor after he defeated Apo Magyan. He tells the young assassin the truth behind the assault that he wants to confirm if Lapu-Lapu and his army are the outsiders who will take care of the Golden Kampilan. Afterward, they proceed to the place where the Golden Kampilan located, according to the captive named Bantog, a warrior from the group of Apo Magyan. When they arrived, Lapu-Lapu decided to make Bantog an offering for their god Bathala to come out, but Habagat did not agree, and he offered a ring finger on his left hand as an offering.

Suddenly someone appeared to Habagat as a gorgeous woman, and she asked him if he was the warrior destined to be the new owner of the Golden Kampilan as prophesied. They all followed with the magical woman to the mysterious place they called Maharlika, where the Isu race lived. This time, Lapu-Lapu released Bantog to become Opong's warrior, and the captive did not hesitate to thank him. When they reached the large door and entered, Habagat was suddenly surprised because his companions were like a stone that does not move and does not speak. He could not understand what was happening until he heard a strange voice from afar. And it was here that the great god of the Filipinos Bathala appeared to him.

Bathala's behavior was annoying because of his strange conversation with Habagat, and the young assassin did not expect it. Bathala suddenly remembered something when he heard from Habagat why they were taking the Golden Kampilan to change the way the two races treated each other in a good way. He remembers Janus, the only person who helped him after the war between the Humans and Isu, who had the same desire as Habagat. He was the first person to take care of Golden Kampilan until his next generation.

Because the Biringan was about to collapse, Bathala gave the weapon to Habagat. While taking the sword, he saw events from the future like the revelation of Agustin Legazpi's plan against the Spanish Templars and the assassination of Andres Bonifacio, the leader of the Katipunan. After he saw that, his reaction suddenly changed, and he had a new purpose with this weapon. Bathala expected that his attitude would change with what he saw in the future, and this was what he was worried about. But he warned Habagat of the proper use of the sword so that he would not have bad luck in the future. When Bathala suddenly disappeared, Biringan became a vast forest.
