Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad is the playable main protagonist of the first Assassin’s Creed which was released in 2007 for the Playstation 3, XBox360 and the PC by Ubisoft.

He returned also in the spin-offs and handheld Assassis Creed games Assassins Creed: Revelations, Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles and Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines. In Assassin’s Creed II he is dead but the new main protagonist Ezio finds his skeleton and an important item during the game. In Assassin’s Creed III it is possible to unlock his costume. In the very different game, Academy of Champions: Soccer by Ubisoft he is a guest character.


Altair is shown as a young and hot-blooded Assassin who does not follow the rules and laws and has to face the consequences. He becomes a very strong assassin though and eventually the leader of them.


Altair is Arabian and means something like “The Flying One” or “The Eagle” and all in all it seems that Altair has a lot in common with an Eagle including some of his stances.
