-> '''Ethan Frye''': "I saw the slums afresh today, George. I was reminded of how the poor are living. This is a world so completely separate from that of the Templars that itís scarcely believable the two share the same country, let alone the same city ... The Templars know nothing of the rookeries. They live upriver of the factory filth that pollutes the water of the poor, and upwind of the smog and smoke that pollutes their air."

Jayadeep Mir is the son of Arbaaz Mir and Pyara Kaur. Born and raised an Assassin from his birth, he had a promising career but in the words of his mentor, Ethan Frye, he did not yet have the killer instinct. His first assignment proves a disaster and in disgrace, he's exiled to England where he takes on a series of aliases as he infiltrates the lower depths of the city. "Henry Green" becomes the linchpin of the Assassin network in London meeting the likes of Frederick Abberline, Alexander Graham Bell, Charles and Mary Pearson as he tries to keep up to speed with the Templars.

Added DiffLines:

* TheExile: Ethan arranges this for Jayadeep. Arbaaz agrees and even fakes Jayadeep's death so that he can come to England and take a new name and identity.


Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredExpert: Ethan warned Arbaaz that Jayadeep wasn't ready for the assignment, but Arbaaz ignored and Jayadeep failed just as Ethan predicted. [[spoiler:Indeed, Ethan actually planned to save his former student's life by bringing the letters he had sent to Arbaaz before the Council and blaming the father for his son's failure but was relieved that it didn't come to that]].


Added DiffLines:

* LikeASonToMe: Ethan Frye likes Henry Green nearly as much as he likes his own kids and Henry comes to see Ethan as a father figure especially when his own father feels disappointed in his son.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: Arbaaz, the roguish young layabout from ''Brahman'' has become a BloodKnight ProudWarriorRaceGuy by the time of this story. He loves his son but he refuses to consider that he was mistaken in his upbringing or that he was endangering his life by forcing him in a situation he wasn't ready for.


* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The Indian Assassins are a little more medieval and pre-Altair than other branches. Arbaaz Mir even feels that Ethan Frye and the British Assassins are too soft, though that might be because [[JerkAss Hamid]] from ComicBook/AssassinsCreedBrahman is still TheMentor.

* GainingTheWillToKill: What a true Assassin needs as per Ethan Frye when he dresses down Henry for messing up his assignment:
--> '''Ethan Frye''': What did I always tell you? What did your father always advise? You hesitate, you die Ė itís as simple as that. An assassination is not a cerebral act. It requires great thought, but all of that thought goes into the planning and preparation, the contemplation and visualization prior to the act itself. That is the time for second, third, fourth thoughts, as many thoughts as you need until you are sure Ė absolutely certain Ė that you are ready to do what needs to be done. Because when you are in the moment, when you stand before your target, there is no time for hesitation.



* VictorianLondon: Much like ''Syndicate'' it takes place during this era.

* JockDadNerdSon: Arbaaz Mir wants Jayadeep to be a warrior and trains him accordingly but Ethan Frye states that the future Henry Green lacks the "killer instinct" and Arbaaz sends an unprepared novice in the field despite Ethan's recommendation that Jayadeep makes a better planner and bureaucrat than field agent.
* TheMentor: Ethan Frye to Henry Green.
* NoodleIncident: Ethan Frye and Arbaaz Mir first met in an adventure concerning the Koh-I-Noor Diamond. Apparently it's the same as the one in ''Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India'' since it concerns William Sleeman and Alexander Burnes.
