The Egyptian, an assassin in Ashur's Group.

An assassin (Latin: Sicarius) was a professional killer, who murdered for coin. They were generally skilled fighters, using multiple types of weapons, such as; Pugiones (daggers), Khopesh (sickles) and Gladii (swords). Some assassins favored stealth tactics to avoid prolonged fighting and head-on confrontation, favoring hand-to-hand combat or small Pugiones.

Ashur's Group is a notable set of assassins (Sicarii), all of which proved themselves, and their profession, to be deadly.
