Was reading asomewhere today about the Ismaili/Hashishim sect led by a certain someone commonly known as the Old Man of the Mountain. An anecdote wants that he once showed up to pourparler with his band and made a hand gesture to one of his men in the direction of a cliff, who in turn, without a slightest hesitation, leaped right off it; following which the Man adressed his rivals and bellowed : "I have thousands of him throughout the region, and you speak to me of peace?"

What a fucking badass.
