Joe is rushing in to poorly defend the POC when she was doing a fine job of doing it herself. He is such a Templar.

In the fictional story of the game Assassin's Creed and it's sequels the Templars are a near thousand year old Christian group of knights, politicians, and other high authority figures (as well as civilians) who's goal is for a "better world". Though their means of doing so are questionable, as is their actual "goal" in the first place. The Templars were political juggernauts in much of the 12th century and renaissance.

They are the sworn enemy of the Assassin Order, who, despite their name, are more or less the peace keepers in this ongoing war. The Templars truly long for world domination using ancient artifacts believed (and in the story eventually proven) to hold mystical powers.

The Templars are based on, and infact are the Knights Templar, a Christian band of knights from the 12th century. As well as their rivals the Assassin Order being based on the real life band of assassins known as the Hashashin (Hashashin believed to be the word "assassin" came from). In all reality these 2 groups did have their own bit of history together but, were never arch rivals nor was one or the other the bad guy. The Knights Templar were most likely the more noble of the groups, but that's fairly debatable.
We are Templars! We are strong! We will not be outwitted by a band of hood wearing thieves!

Despite what these guys may think, real Templars had nothing to do with Star Craft. Templar was the title for members of the Knights of the Temple. These warrior elites were similar to the Hospitallers and the Teutonic knights, in that they were extremely skilled knights that fought against the Saracens during the Crusades.
Saladins camel riding Mamelukes didn't stand a chance against Templars.
