"Make sure Murat's resources are being recovered – or else you will be sorry. Very sorry. "
―Côme to Pascal Leclerc, 1789

The Descent Order

Côme (c. 1751 – May 1789) was a French Templar operating on behalf of Shamar al-Djin and his Board of Directors. He cooperated with two other Templars: Absolon and Gaubert.

Côme was born and raised in Calais, always seeking for adventures. At the age of 20, he was recruited into the Templar Order – overseen by Shamar al-Djin, Marguerite Murat and Joséph Iscariotte. Working as an enforcer of The Turk, Côme was to serve as Murat's lieutenant and make sure the company's resources were going to their locations. Côme and his fellowmen also worked as errand boys for the Director of the Sea: Ghufran Karimi.

Some weeks before the start of the Revolution, Côme and his associates met the harbormaster of Calais: Pascal Leclerc. The men wanted to know why some resources had disappeared from their master's storehouse, and how the running transactions went. Pascal, afraid for his life, told them that he had no clue why some goods were gone – and the transactions still went good (he had got letters that told so). Côme told Pascal to recover the goods, or else would his family pay.

The following day, Côme met Geaubert near the Église Notre-Dame de Calais. The men had betrayed their masters; the disappearing resources who was supposed to be going into the Templars' pocket, had been sent to Absolon's mansion. Absolon wanted to get into the shadow economy – by exploiting The Turk. Absolon got his friends to join the plan, while still working for Shamar and his friends – and by doing this, getting paid. The meaning behind their meeting at the church, was because Geaubert began to doubt the plans. Côme had got orders by Absolon to "take care of it".

The same evening, met the two remaining Templars at Shamar's base. During the evening, Côme and Absolon met Shamar – who asked why some resources had disappeared from his storehouse. Absolon and Côme blamed on Pascal, the harbormaster. Shamar was not stupid, but he lured them out to the gardens. He had hired three hitmen to take them both out.

Marie Anne Étienne witnessed while Shamar al-Djin murdered his associates with cold blood.
