The Chancellors used the Assassin-Magi from their very beginnings to help them usurp control of the Kingdom of Alterac. Over the generations, the Assassin-Magi served faithfully, until their brash commander, Morim Jaeaete, grew disillusioned with the Chancellors and their supposedly sacred mission. He attempted to lead a rebellion. Ultimately, it failed, and the Assassin-Magi were disbanded for decades.
In the time of Lord Tendura Xie, General Mikhail Gabranth proposed the restoration of the order. It was approved, and Gabranth trained himself in the ancient arts of the Assassin-Magi. With that knowledge, he was able to train a new generation, which was to serve under the regime of the time up until its final end.
