Nischal Limbu was a Nepalese Gurkha in the 19th century and a member of the Assassin order from 1812 to 1817.
Ever since Nischal found out about his Assassin heritage and the Templar-backed killing of his father, he made it his mission to kill the men responsible and end the tyranny of the Templar-controlled East India Company. Nischal's violent attitude and impulsiveness made him very hard to work with and often compromised some of the missions. But his fearsomeness struck fear into the Templars and into the British.
Kunja: 'He is such an angry child”
Nischal was born to Siddhartha and Kunja Limbu, members of the Gurkha class of Nepal, in 1789. When he was fourteen years old, his parents started to grow concerned about Nischal’s violent tempers and disrespect towards his elders.
In 1804, Nischal started to learn how to hunt in the mountains with his father. His father taught him how to wield a Kukri and how to free run.
In the year 1807, Siddhartha let Nischal hunt on his own for once. While he was gone, his father was killed by British soldiers under the command of Templar Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, 1st Earl of Minto. Nischal returned to see The Earl and 10 of his men, armed, and standing over his dead father. Nischal ran away to the mountains, where he would live for the next five years.
In 1812, Nischal, now 23, stumbled across a group of Gurkhas who lived in the mountains. Nischal was introduced to Balbhadra Kunwar, secretly member of the Assassin order. Kunwar was an old friend of Nischal’s father, and told Nischal about the history of the order in Nepal, and his father’s inclusion in the order.
Kunwar was quite proud of Nischal’s progress over the years, and in 1813, sent Nischal on his first mission to the city of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, to kill Sameer Khas, a Nepalese merchant believed to be dealing with the Templars. Nischal set out, armed with his Kukri, a hidden blade, and two flintlock pistols equipped with axe heads on the end of the barrel. Outside of Kathmandu, he saw a woman being assaulted by two men. He rode over to the men and demanded that they stop assaulting the woman. The men attacked him, knives drawn. Nischal managed to disarm both of the men and beat them down with his fists. The woman thanked him and introduced herself as Ashmi, the daughter of a merchant in Kathmandu. Nischal inquired to her about Khas, and if she knew anything about him. Ashmi told him that Khas is often seen in the merchant district being carried in a litter by armed guards at night. Nischal thanked the girl and told her if she ever needed help like this again, to come find him.
Nischal made his way to the merchant district of Kathmandu and began his investigation, first searching the marketplace for information on Khas. Nischal eavesdropped on a conversation between two merchants; Khas was planning to ship a large amount of weapons to British troops in India. One of the merchants stated he was going to meet with Khas in the Indra Chok marketplace. As the first merchant left, Nischal tailed the other merchant to the Indra Chok and waited until Khas arrived that evening.
The Merchant and Khas quickly conversed with each other as Nischal looked on. Eventually, the merchant left, and Khas was left with just him and his two guards. Nischal moved quickly, and air assassinated the two guards with his hidden blades. Khas had very little time to react before Nischal stabbed him in the stomach.
In his last words, Khas revealed he only sided with the Templars and the East India Company because he feared their power, and wanted power for himself. Nischal told him to die peacefully and that those in darkness will eventually reach the light. Nischal left the area before any guards could arrive.
