---I D E N T I T Y---
Name: Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad
Actual Age: 1,246
Physical Age: Varies
---P H Y S I C A L ---
Personality: Generally, Altair is seen to be quite serious and focussed on his work, yet with an arrogant side that most can become quite frustrated with. Although there have been times that he has forsaken what he knows as the Creed in order to fulfill his own goals, he has returned to it in the past, and now continues to swear by it, by the words that he himself created as Grand Master. He has great respect for the dead, choosing only to assassinate those who have brought it upon themselves, and making sure that he receives as much information from them as possible.
However, there have been times where Altair has been seen as "rough", and, as such, he has developed an ideal where he truly perceives the lines and motions of the world around him, having developed himself into a purely calm and focussed individual. That is not to say, of course, that he is incapable of love, or compassion. He has simply hidden these feelings for the greater good and the peace to all things. He knows that there will be time to fall in love when the world is finally at peace.
Weight: 74 kg

Superhuman Strength: As a primarily strength-based fighter, Altair has received a boost in his strength like no other; with full momentum behind it, his entire strength, and the wish to land a proper blow, Altair can exert up to one ton of force with the maximum power; however he generally averages anything from about half a ton to 0.6 tons of force. In terms of strength, he is far more powerful than Ezio.
Superhuman Endurance: To keep up close combat against multiple individuals, Altair required a high amount of endurance. The Apple of Eden has granted him that boost, allowing him to keep up physical endurance for a high amount of time, letting him stay at a full sprinting speed for over five-hundred meters at a time before having to rest.
Increased Speed: Despite not possessing any sort of "step", Altair has the physical strength to be able to run at quite a high pace. Although this cannot compare to Ezio's own agility and the like, he is still quite formidable when it comes down to it.
Increased Agility: Unlike his partner Ezio, Altair is not amazingly agile in terms of free-running. While he can keep up with some of his partner's movements, it is not easy for him to keep up with all of them; and, as such, he is usually left behind. However, in a straight line, Altair's charge is just as quick and formidable.

Apple's Influence: Due to the influence of the Apple of Eden, Altair has found himself with several physical features to his created form. Although he himself possesses very few powers of his own, he has been granted a body that can surpass all natural humans, and reach heights that normally only exist in the bodies of the spiritual beings, such as Shinigami and the like.
Cloning: Altair can use the Apple of Eden's powers to create illusory clones of himself. These clones have attack potential, however weaken as more of them are created. Up to ten clones can be created, and if Altair himself is damaged, the clones dissipate as the Apple is disrupted.
Mass Control: Using the influence of the Apple of Eden, Altair is able to take control of the minds of the weak and use them at his command; however due to his own knowledge and workings of the Creed, it is unlikely that he will ever choose to use this ability, unless it is purely for the greater good. (NPC CONTROLLING ONLY)
Restraining: Altair can use the Apple to restrain a single target of his choice; this is usually highly difficult to break. However the trade-off is that killing the target is impossible under this restraint, as the powers that bind them surround them with a swirling torrent of energy that proves impossible to break, yet still allowing them the necessities to live.
Age Jumping: As with Ezio, Altair has also been afflicted with the ability and curse to change age at will while retaining his abilities. He can change between the ages of 26, 44 and 92 years at will, however this can also be random.
Eagle Vision: Eagle Vision is an ability granted by the Apple that allows Altair to perceive the difference between enemies, allies and powerful enemies at will. When he switches to this vision form, everything goes dark, and suddenly the Reiatsu of everyone around him lights up for him. Those who he classes as allies are lit up in blue, enemies in red and key enemies in gold.

Hidden Blades: Having designed these blades himself, Altair opts to wear both of them as well. The hidden blades are located below his wrist, on the inner side of his arm. These blades are located there for easy access and so he can quickly sling them out and stab the target. There are one on each arm, allowing to kill multiple targets at the same time. He had to sacrifice his ring fingers on each hand to do so.
Sword of Altair: This sword, in itself, has no spiritual abilities, but it is a very, VERY capable sword able of cutting through even some amour. The blade is a powerful steel, capable of even taking blows from other swords/Zanpakutō.
Armor of Altair: Altair's Armor has been designed of a special metal detailed from the Apple of Eden itself. This armor was built in such a way that makes it almost completely unbreakable by any conventional or spiritual weapons.
At several points in his life, Altair had the Apple. While he had originally used it to create, he found that it was also capable of recording. He wasn't completely sure how he was doing it, but he put the exact method he had used into his own Codex pages, hoping that someone would, some day, be able to add to it in the future. He had also found another thing he could record into the Apple, but decided to leave that way until he knew it would be good.
His first point of recording was just after the killing of the nine Templars, and his subsequent promotion to Grand Master of the Assassin Order. When he recorded his memory within the Apple, he found that it was easier to handle life like this, with the thought of the memories being held by something that he could protect with ease.
The next two times he recorded his memories, were when he had started promoting the Assassin's Order around the cities of the Holy Land, and when he finally finished his library in Masyaf.
His final recording, however, was different. On his deathbed, Altair chose to record something else before he died. He recorded his soul, and imprinted it within the Apple, his body finally dying happy, but his soul remaining trapped within his single Apple. The next time he would awake, he would be in a new time and place.
This Apple was taken through history, until present day, when a large force caused it to awaken within itself. They don't really know what it was, but the Apple suddenly formed itself into a core, creating the form of Altair around it to protect itself, staying as the center of his powers and his form. He met with another Assassin; a man who he supposedly was an ancestor of, and the pair began to explore this strange new world.
