Aguilar de Nerha (1455 – 1526) was a Master Assassin and eventual Mentor of the Spanish Brotherhood of Assassins during the late 15th and early 16th century. He is also an ancestor of Callum Lynch through the maternal line.
Aguilar played a prominent role in the Brotherhood's actions during the Spanish Inquisition, a period of time in which many members of his Order were captured and executed by the Inquisitors, who acted under the direction of the Templars. He thwarted an attempt by the Grand Inquisitor and Master Templar, Tomás de Torquemada, to obtain an Apple of Eden in order to bring Spain completely under Templar control.
He first appears in the Assassin's Creed movie, played by Michael Fassbender, then again in Assassin's Creed Rebellion, where it is canonically proven that the latter meets Master Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
