The Assassin is a legendary figure and is the substitute for the Grim Reaper in the world of Fallen Throne. However, he exists and follows his own path. What exactly he wants, what purpose he serves or who he (or she) actually is unknown.
He appears so rarely that many believe him to just be a superstition. Some believe that he exists and and some do not. The Assassin is often used to curse somebody, which is often taken as a grave insult as it implies wishing death upon somebody.
