There are some odd things i found in the dictionary when i looked up words from AC.

The main characters name is Altir, here's the defenition.

Altair /ˈltɛər, -taɪər, lˈtɛər, -ˈtaɪər/ Pronunciation Key - [al-tair, -tahyuhr, al-tair, -tahyuhr] noun a first-magnitude star in the constellation Aquila.

[Origin: < Ar (al-nasr) al-ṭā'ir (the) flying (eagle)]

The flying eagle is what i noticed,probably refering to the famous "leap of faith", it's Arabic.

Anywho, I hope we all know what Assassin means so, what about "Creed"?

creed (krēd) Pronunciation Key
A formal statement of religious belief; a confession of faith.
A system of belief, principles, or opinions: laws banning discrimination on the basis of race or creed; an architectural creed that demanded simple lines.

A belief or religious belief, which one? This is the crusade may I mind you, a war over a religious city, or something like that.

Actually the assassin defenition does hold something.

assassin /əˈssɪn/ [uh-sas-in] Pronunciation Key -
noun 1. a murderer, esp. one who kills a politically prominent person for fanatical or monetary reasons.
2. (initial capital letter) one of an order of Muslim fanatics, active in Persia and Syria from about 1090 to 1272, whose chief object was to assassinate Crusaders.

That second one throws me off a bit. So what do you guys think?
