Followers of Romulus
- "A place in heaven awaits those who serve the wolf!"
- ―A leader of the Followers of Romulus.[src]
- 主な記事: Lairs of Romulus
The Followers occupied seven underground lairs, which could be found beneath famous landmarks in Rome. The lairs could be accessed through locked grates hung with a wolf's skull, or through ladders hidden beneath circular trapdoors.
Each lair contained a shrine dedicated to Romulus, which was always decorated with wooden crosses, treasure, and skulls. A single golden chest at the center of the shrine would also hold one of the six scrolls of Romulus, and a corresponding key.
These six keys would unlock the gate to the Followers' central shrine, which held their cherished treasure, the unbreakable armor and dagger of Romulus. However, in truth, the equipment had belonged to Marcus Junius Brutus, and had only been entrusted to the Followers as an icon to worship.
In the early 16th century, the Master Assassin Ezio Auditore was able to enter all of the Followers' lairs. By traversing them, he was able to discover more about the Followers, and obtain their scrolls, keys, and treasured set of armor.
- In certain art (their Database image, and the image featured above), the Followers were depicted with a heavy weapon or a pair of short blades. In-game however, they used only a single short blade.
- The Followers were relatively weak opponents, and could only perform slight damage to a single block of Ezio's health, rather than removing the block entirely. They also possessed one of the weakest resistances in the game.
- The Followers often used throwing knives before directly attacking, had unique death cries, and displayed unique attack animations.
- In the Collector's Edition of the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Complete Official Guide, the Followers of Romulus were labelled Wolfmen.
