I've digged up a lot about the history of Qin Dynasty.

I never found a name of Wei or Yu who was using the spear to kill Qin Shi Huang...

So plz tell me that the " Wei Yu " was a true assassin in history or an virtual guy created by Assassin's Creed

thanks

I am a Chinese.
I havn't heard of anyone WEI YU.

Actually none of the assasination attempts on Qin Shi Huang (menas the founding emperor of Qin Dynasty) had ever succeeded.

Someone has tried killing him with a dagger concealed inside a fish and a map roll. Killing him with a spear will be veryvery hard as he's got guards all around him.

Pretty sure that all of the statues in the basement are made up characters.

Possible future playable ancestors, yes?

According to Assassin's Creed lore(tm), Wei Yu was responsible for the death of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. Of course, he is a fictional fellow made up for the story as Qin Shi Huang died from mercury poisoning in real life.

Mercury poisoning... Sounds like the tools of AN ASSASSIN!
