    How to say that phrase in Latin?

    In obscuritate laboramus ut luci serviamus is a good translation.

    Ah, okay Got it, the verb is Servio and not Servo.. you're right.

    Just writing ad musas.
    In darkness, perhaps in tenebris or sub obscuro (Virgil)
    to work in the shadows - perhaps more apporiate in assassin context would be in tenebris operamus or even clam operamus luci serviendi causa
    Gregorius Textor and J.M like this.

    That would be operamur.
