Hassan, the first Old Man of the Mountain

The Old Man of the Mountain was the leader of the Assassins.

Assassins Edit

Hassan became the founder and patriarch of the cursed lineage of the Assassins. [1] He was formerly known as the Prince, son of the Sultan of Medinaat al-Salaam. [2]

Cursed Edit

Hassan was the lover of Hanan Talibah, who became the Caliph. She somehow manipulated Hassan into slaying his father the Sultan. The Grey Woman, his father's lover, cast a curse upon him, which with time was instrumental in the creation of the Assassins. [2]

Order of the Mountain Edit

In the Hidden Keep of the Assassins Hassan created the Order of the Mountain. His Children fought a silent war across the streets of Medinaat al-Salaam, a Blood Feud that waged a war of revenge for centuries against the Immortal Caliph. [3]

After an internal fight between different factions Haroun, son of the first Old Man, took his father's title. [4] [5]
