Desmond Miles is a descendant of the Assassin Order. He was trained as an assassin by William Miles, his father. Tired of being confounded in the assassin territory, Desmond relocated to New York City in order to pursue his dream and ambition. He got employed at the Bad Weather nightclub as a bartender.
Our world is divided into nine territories. Only a descendant of a house bloodline can rule. The ruthless leader of Territory Six has done the impossible. Three of the nine territories have fallen under the weight of his power. If the ruling houses can't set aside their differences and join as one, our world will perish.
