"Repose en paix les uns erronée."
―Mathieu Bertrand after Robespierre's execution.


Born in Écorches, a commune of north-western France. Mathieu grow up in the same town as Charlotte Corday, quickly becoming close childhood friends. After the death of her mother and sister Charlotte's father sent her to the Abbaye-aux-Dames in Caen causing him to follow her. While there Charlotte began to read the works of Plutarch, Rousseau and Voltaire. Through her the ideals of the enlightenment took hold in Mathieu and he soon set out for Paris to apply them.

The streets of Paris had almost been the death of him, lack of bread had nearly starved the city and caused the denizens to become very hostile to outsiders. Maximilien Robespierre had been his savior, offering food and shelter to the future assassin and entrance into the Jacobin Club.

Over the next few months Robespierre seemed to devote all his time to teaching Mathieu about the political situation of France and informing him of the crimes of Louis XVI. During these teachings, Robespierre was attacked by a group of thugs lead by an unknown nobleman. After fending off the ambush, Robespierre addressed the nobleman as a Templar. What followed was dramatic revelation on the inner workings of society, the Templar's role in it, and most importantly; the assassin's role in it.

The Assassin Order[]

"Rien n'est vrai. Tout est permis."
―Mathieu Bertrand joining the order.

Sustaining a broken arm during a free running exercises had created some free time for the young novice. Robespierre took advantage of this, deciding to reveal the other members of the order. Most of the Jacobin Club are of the order, it had numerous spies in the first and second estate, and the order was widespread across the world from northern Europe to southeast Asia. He also told him about two theories he had been working on. The first was making a country with the Assassins in charge of the nation's army and public works, this way they could combat nations taken by the Templars. The second is the Declaration of the Rights of Man; a document that would guarantee equality in rights, protect citizens from power hunger politician, and secure the right to speak, write, and print with freedom.

Mathieu quickly healed and worked his way through the ranks to become a full fledged assassin and during his initiation ceremony had an image of a ring tattooed on his left ring finger. One month later king Louis XVI dismissed Jacques Necker, an informant placed there by the assassins to watch the Templars and report their movements. He was popular with the common masses due to his reforming policies. Within days the people of Paris had formed an army to take the Bastille. Robespierre saw this as the best chance to take the nation and despatched his new assassin to the Bastille.
