Assassin

From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Assassins are agents specialized in killing and infiltration. Various types of assassin are used by several races and armies to efficiently damage an enemy by removing one or more important individuals. Assassins may infiltrate the enemy in order to kill important leaders and officers, destroy special objectives, or perform some other covert task that a conventional army would have to suffer many losses to achieve.

The High Lords of Terra, rulers and administrators of the Imperium, have a special division, the Officio Assassinorum, (aka the Office of Assassins), to deal with such matters. The Dark Eldar have the Mandrakes.
