I have constantly felt that that quote had actually nothing to do around stealth however instead about their methods. Assassin’s commit publicly murders and kill countless quantities of soldiers who are simply trying to make a living. But since of their controversial action the common people are able come live their lives in true freedom.

You are watching: We work in the dark to serve the light

“We occupational in the dark”: we death for our ideals.

“To serve the light”: it benefits the free will that the people

What perform you think? carry out you agree through my interpretation or carry out you have actually another?

I an ext took that to average that they don't perform what they do for glory or recognition. They work-related in the \"dark\" in other words the background/behind the scenes/anonymously to offer the greater good (the light).

They mainly do literally job-related in the dark. The templars never ever knew once ezio would certainly strike uneven he wanted them to know. That was tough for the templars to discover the assassins many of the time. That's simply my opinion

You're for sure right, however the truth is that most Assassins exterior of the MCs arent literal one guy armies. Stealth is certain the main technique employed by Assassins. IRL one of the more famous hashashin feats was leaving a knife and also note under a noblemans pillow while everyone was no one the wiser. IIRC, that is.

I love the quote together a stage technician: a lot of the work to collection up shows and also events take ar well before the audience or even the talent arrive, and we shot to stay covert operating all the lights and scenery and also costume transforms while every the fist is on the talent in the spotlight. Periodically the dark is literal, together in the wing of a phase or during blackouts between scenes; occasionally it's the set-building and light-hanging before the performances.

It's the same way I feel v the Assassins, who work-related behind the scenes to fight for the people who otherwise have actually no reservation what's going on under the surface. They often don't also take credit for their victories.

You are right with the component about the light, however the dark has an additional meaning. The quote is basically born by Aya and Bayek in Origins.

See more: 15 Years To Days Conversion (Yr To Day), Convert 15 Years To Days

Origins spoiler, do not check out if you room planning come play it yourself: Aya and also Bayek worked versus the bespeak in public and also even formed an alliance v cleopatra. That decision was a huge mistake in the end, together cleopatra betrayed castle in the end. \"I was wrong! ns am responsible. When my boy died, ns fought ago with rage and anger... Yet this only made lock stronger. We are all different. But we fought together to put cleopatra ~ above the throne. Currently this to be a mistake, my friends. However at least, it brought us together. Now our adversaries are surprise behind crowns. Walking in the shadows the kings and queens. Who space the ones, the walk in the shadows because that the people? we are. Something has come of every one of this. And it starts best now. Us must continue the fight and defend the free will of the people. And also no matter how small, ours brotherhood is the just hope. And also our Kingdom needs no crowns. That's we believe in. Ours values, our creed - will certainly unify us. (...)\" and also later in ~ the end \"I was wrong to be so reckless in public with our killing. We have to work in the shadows.\" (...)

Basically, it method to work-related in the shadows, not present yourself as the savior, so friend can't be manipulated, betrayed or stopped by others in her work. You don't desire to acquire credit for it anyways, as it is for the people, not for yourselves.

Edit: Valhalla Endgame Spoilers, help to distinguish your interpretation of \"killing because that our ideals\":

Eivor doesn't want to sign up with the order, because he doesn't like to \"work in the dark to offer the light\" as he wants to obtain the glory and fame because that his achievements. Sort of paradox come his statement at the end after fighting Odin though, but that's his answer come hytham.
