Cult of Kosmos is one of the two overarching antagonistic factions of Assassin's Creed franchise (alongside the Order of the Ancients).
It is an ancient secretive cult that worships a deity known as Kosmos that was one of several antecedents to the Templar Order alongside the Order of the Ancients, and are the main antagonists in Assassin Creed: Odyssey.
Unlike the Greek world, the Cult of Kosmos were monotheistic and held a strong reverence for Kosmos, whom they believed to be a Supreme Being. They had also believed in an afterlife and believed that their works will reward them with a blissful afterlife for serving the Cult of Kosmos. Some cult members also revered members who descended from the bloodline of the Isu as demigods.
The Cult of Kosmos sought to create a unified Greek Nation, one where unnecessary violence and human vices would be absent and the people could move towards a more rational and developing society. This new extremely rational and semi-democratic Greece would've been led by a Philosopher-king.
In order to accomplish their goal of creating a unified Greece, they turned to creating a controlled war but soon became engulfed by greed over the massive amounts of profit and political power it granted them. They then sought to delay their final goal, all the while plotting to extending their war as much as possible. These cultists even enabled Deimos, a mentally unstable and borderline superhuman descendant of the Isu, to become their violent leader.
The Cult of Kosmos was founded at some point after the meeting of Hermes Trismegistus and Pythagoras which had led to the Cult of Hermes disattected with the cult of hermes ways a number of followers splintered from the group and formed their own collective the cult of kosmos led by the ghost of kosmos. In the 5th century bce the cult notable supported king xerxes I of persia during his conquests seeing him as a means to unite all greece as one under his one rule.
In 480 BCE when Leonidas I of Sparta consulted the Pythia about going to war against the Persians, the whole cult confronted the spartan king warning him not to oppose their plans. Nevertheless, Leonidas chose to disregard their threats and fight against the invaders an act of defiance which cost him his life. following Leonidas's defiance, the Cult grew determined to wipe out his bloodline due to its potential for interference. In 446 BCE, through their manipulation of the Pythia, the Cult spread word that the youngest grandchild of Leonidas, Alexios, would bring ruin to Sparta and as a result the infant was sentenced to execution concurrently. Alexios's sister, Kassandra, tried to save her brother only to push him and the execution did not go the plan. However, both children survived while Kassandra went into exile her mother, Myrrine took Alexios to the Sanctuary of Asklepios in Argolis to seek medical aid, but the priests at the sanctuary told Myrrine that Alexios did not survive his wounds. This however, was a lie and instead, the cultist know as Chrysis took Alexios as her own and renamed him Deimos so the Cult could use him as a weapon.
