Eddie Gorm was a British member of the Assassin Order who operated in Europe during World War II and the main character of Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies.
A disgraced and former member of the Navy turned docker, Eddie was recruited in September 1940 by the US operations to infiltrate the Atomic program of the Nazi. Reluctant to help the Americans at first, Eddie accepted after his widowed sister-in-law and her two children died during a German bombardment of London.
Two years later, and now a trusted defector and officer in the SS, the "Untersturmfurher" Gorm discovered that the atomic program of the Germans was in fact a front for the development of a Templar device, Die Glocke. However, Eddie blowed his cover in the process and had to flee, to the Americans who turned to be Assassins. Eddie was revealed to be the descendant of an Assassin bloodline and joined the Brotherhood
On 27 February 1943, he was parachuted in Vermok, a Norwegianhydroelectric plant, which he later infiltrated in order to stop the Templar from finishing their secret weapon.
Eddie was captured and put into the device which was in fact a proto-Animus powered by an Apple of Eden. However, because his grandson Maxime Gorm was reliving his memories at the same time, something went wrong and Eddie's consciousness was switched with Maxime's and he woke up in the 21th Century.
