- "The Luxembourg fighters are a gruop of fallen aristocrats and merchants who don't have much other to do then reclaiming their lost so-called "glory". Even though their actions may look Assassin-affiliated, they are Templars through and through. "

Boroughs of Paris
The Luxembourg fighters (French.: Le Luxembourg combattants), or simply The Fighters (also written as LF) was an extremist Templar-affiliated group that operated in the revolutionary Paris. The Fighters used the Luxembourg Palace as their headquarters, and ruled the trading and lives of every soul in the poor or middle-class of Paris. The Fighters' leader was a viscountess named Madeleine Montrez de Gambais, the sister of Jean-Jacques de Gambais. During the whole French Revolution, The Fighters was hired multiple times to execute the Templars' dirty-work.

It was odd she wasn't rich: there had to be a lot of people in power who wanted to get rid of their enemies on a way like Élisadora could manage.
Talking to Élisadora, de Gambais learned that she had used her money to start a campaign to get rid of powerful people like the tailor-turned-aristocrat François de la Serre. De Gambais told Élisadora that she could give her a job as an Assassin, even her bodyguard. Élisadora wanted to know what for, and de Gambais answered: "I seek to free the citizens of Paris from a corrupt despotism, and in order to that, I need to find people who can accompany me."
