How could he turn from Templar to Assassin Mentor?
BTW there are no subtitles in AC1 so I can't really hear everything

I'm pretty sure he wasn't actually a Templar, he just temporarily allied himself with them so he could steal the Apple out from under them for himself.

What Loyal said. Al Mualim is one of the few antagonists in the series who wasn't actually a Templar, just working towards his own goals.

I was always a little confused by this, too. Doesn't deSable refer to Al Mualim as a Templar to Altair at some point?

I always kind of viewed it as Mualim adopting a Templar-like mindset while not officially being a Templar.

I've done it for you this time but please make sure to put the SPOILER tag in your titles without giving away anything. We want to make sure the games aren't ruined for new players right now.

Thanks ;)

Robert: "Nine men he sent you to kill, yes? The nine who guarded the treasure's secret."
Alta´r: "What of it?"
Robert: "It wasn't nine who found the treasure, Assassin. Not nine, but ten."

Basically he doesn't say Al Mualim was a Templar, only that he was present at the discovery of the Apple.

Otso Berg basically confirms it.

To summarize: he used Alta´r to get rid of the Templars while also seizing power to eventually betray the Assassins & conquer the Holy Land. In hindsight, it was pretty genius.
