The woman manages to survive thanks to her cunning, which leads her to carry out numerous street scams. However, one day she is discovered by the mysterious Gavin Banks, a character that most die-hard fans might recognize. From then on, she Aliyah will undergo harsh training to become an assassin, so she will soon learn first-hand about the conflict with the Templars.

Rose Galloway is in charge of training many of the order’s aspirants.
What do today’s world and seventeenth-century England have in common?
Assassin’s Creed: Gold is written by Anthony Del Col, author of several comics in the series. According to the press release, this sound fiction “also invites reflection”, as it establishes a parallel between the financial case of 17th century Great Britain, the time in which Newton lived, with contemporary economic uncertainty.
