Hassansins fight with no remorse, each one able to cause maximum damage by wielding ferocious weapons. Tradition dictated that the Hassasins were always seven. They were expert in discipline of janna, (the art of a quick death), and they took poppy to numb their bodies and their spirits about the world of darkness they lived in.
Events of The Sands of Time
Many were killed, but the Prince used the dagger to stop Nizam from killing his father; this means they never faced the prince and those who were killed in the original future didn't die.
Hassansins are based on Hashshashins; real medieval Persian warriors who are surrounded by legends and mysticism. The word "Hashshansin" is derived from Hassan-i Sabbah, the founder of the Hashshansin etymology, who lived in Persia from the mid-11th century to the early 12th century.
The name eventually evolved into assassination, or the murder a sudden attack; often for political purposes. The word actually refers to the drug hashish.
- One of the hassansins in the film uses a weapon that resembles the Daggertail.
