you could just read Alamut, the inspiration for the Assassin order in Assassin's Creed, and pretty much over all AC1.



Huh, reading that wikipedia article made me realize that ACR also took inspiration from Alamut. In Alamut, two of the "Assassins" ordered to kill themselves by "Al Mualim" are Yusuf and Suleiman, two men that Ezio works with in ACR.
