Episode 3 (Ragnarok Online)
The Assassins Guild is a group of Arabic-inspired warriors dedicated to preserving the balance of power within the entire continent. The Assassins Guild's modus operandi is to swiftly and brutally kill off anyone who threatens to give the Aesir, Vanir, or the giants a foothold in Midgard. Their rationale for doing this is that by keeping Midgard a "no man's land" for the gods and giants, it will stop the mortal realm from becoming their battlefield. The policy doesn't exactly make them friends with anyone.
Guildmembers seem to number around 50 or so.
HistoryThe guild has existed for about 500 years, during which the Assassins Guild headquarters was once located to the right of Morroc in the midst of the Sograt Desert. It was protected by sand cyclones and only sanctified assassins were allowed to enter. Their most elite warriors are known as Assassins of the Cross and have a distinct symbol to distinguish themselves from other assassins.
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.Most are slaughtered by Sakray, who then proceeds to paint the word "flight" (which appears on Chaos' jacket) upon the ruins of the guild's fortress in order to frame him. The only remaining members of the guild were assassins who were not at the headquarters at the time of the attack. The survivors are eventually stationed at the Guild headquarters to rebuild and recover the heavy losses taken.
Some time later, the Assassins Guild headquarters was rebuilt on a small island to the southeast of its original location. Its membership have grown to large numbers since Loki's time. Although the headquarters is no longer protected by a sand cyclone, the Sandman monsters that populate the area serve as a decent replacement to deter unwanted trespassers.
