For other uses, see assassin.

"Assassins are men who live in the shadows, always prepared to take the life of any who are doomed to become their target. They are the ghost fighters, who with special skills can strike without being detected, and leave without a trace. Their skill with weapons is second only to the Gladiator. With the addition of the skills only they can use, the Assassin is a formidable opponent."

The Assassin is one of the four ultimate might classes in Might and Magic IX, the other three being the Gladiator, Paladin, and Ranger. It is the only class that can reach grandmaster level in thrown weapons and disarm trap.
