'''Be aware that this page WILL contain some unhidden spoilers!''' [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:Assassins]] !!Ratonhnhaké:ton (Connor) [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ConnorKenwayAC_5763.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Noah Watts A Mohawk Native American with an English father, Connor had a turbulent childhood that saw his tribe destroyed by colonial forces. His hatred of tyranny led to his recruitment by the Assassin Order in 1770 and involvement in the American Revolutionary War. ---- * {{Adorkable}}: Occasionally has shades of this when trying to integrate into colonial culture. * AmbiguouslyBrown: InUniverse, it's used so Connor can pass as a Spaniard. * AncestralWeapon: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Connor uses Haytham's Hidden Blade, which Haytham gave to Ziio to pass down to him. * AntiquatedLinguistics: Does not use contractions. * AnAxeToGrind: ** Connor can wield tomahawks, with the most iconic being the one with a head in the shape of the Assassin crest. ** He can also use larger, two-handed axes like the ones used by [[EliteMook Grenadiers]]. * ArcherArchetype: Can use a bow. * BackToBackBadasses: With Aveline in this [[http://cdn.wegotthiscovered.com/wp-content/uploads/assassins-creed-3-liberation-5.jpg pic.]] * {{Badass}}: As per the style of Franchise/AssassinsCreed protagonists. ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassNative ** EmpoweredBadassNormal: After drinking the Tea of the Red Willow in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}, Connor gains supernatural powers. See SuperPowerLottery for the details. * TheBeastmaster: He is capable of using ghostly wolves to attack people in ''The Tyranny Of King Washington'' {{DLC}}. * BeenThereShapedHistory * BerserkButton: While he's soft spoken and caring at the best of times, he also has a short temper caused by his character flaw of naivety. Doubting his opinions seems to set him off the most often. * BewareTheNiceOnes: Connor is fair, sympathetic, generous and kind to his friends and to ordinary people, and applies what he believes about the value of life and human dignity consistently--meaning, yes, to his enemies as well. At first, he tends to seek (relatively) peaceful resolutions with his enemies--most notably in how he tries to work together with [[spoiler:Haytham and the Templars]], in his decision to leave [[spoiler:William Johnson alive after destroying his funds, believing that this would be enough to stop him from buying his people's land]], and also his initial plan to [[spoiler:imprison Thomas Hickey to stop his assassination schemes, as Hickey can't hurt Washington if he's behind bars]]. Every single time, they spit on his mercy. And every single time, he [[GoodIsNotSoft doesn't offer a second chance]]. * BlackAndWhiteMorality: Connor is described as having a very firm idea of right and wrong. Early on, he shows a somewhat naive belief that people should simply be straightforward and honest about their actions and points out the hypocrisy of colonists protesting about their freedoms while also practicing slavery. ** WhiteAndGreyMorality: Surprisingly for an Assassin, and especially such a prominent one, Connor internalizes the Templar's ideals in order to understand his true duty as an Assassin. (It helps that the Templars in this game as represented by Haytham are far less rabid and more logical and well-intentioned, even if they are all major {{Jerkass}}es). Connor never buys into the Templar propaganda, since his strong moral compass centers on his belief in freedom (which the Templars explicitly hate), but he never disregards them either. Typically he acknowledges the wisdom in the Templars' dying words, but refuses to apologize for the deed on the grounds of the Templar in question being an irredeemable asshat. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: The hidden blade is a Type 1. Like Ezio, he can wield [[DualWielding two at once]]. It's also foldable so that he can hold it like a knife. * BowAndSwordInAccord: And axe and pistol too... [[WalkingArmory or whatever else he's carrying]]. Bow is a given, regardless. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: In his early days. After obtaining the Assassin robes, he loses the buckskins completely while the braids and beads get downplayed. * BreakTheCutie: While his life wasn't exactly sunshine and rainbows prior, the final quarter of the game is one sledgehammer blow after another to the poor guy. * BreakingSpeech: Connor pulls out one against Achilles targeting his failures and reticence to help the colonists. * BrokenPedestal: He considered George Washington a decent enough man and a worthy leader in the fight for freedom of the colonists. [[spoiler: Then he learned that not only was he only fighting for the freedom of the colonists alone, but it was him who ordered the burning of Connor's village, resulting in the death of his mother. Needless to say, their relationship was never the same again, even post-''Tyranny of King Washington''.]] * ButNotTooForeign: A rare western example. He's half-British, half-Mohawk. * TheCaptain: Of TheDreaded CoolBoat ''Aquila'', a.k.a. "The Ghost of the North Seas." * CatchPhrase: "Where is Charles Lee?" * CelibateHero: So far, Connor is the only main protagonist without any sort of love interest, and in one homestead mission where he tries to help Norris court Myriam with a gift, he awkwardly asks Prudence advice on what "you women" like. A far cry from the womanizing Ezio. ** [[ForegoneConclusion A temporary case, however.]] While it's true we haven't yet seen Connor with any woman in ''III'', it's only a matter of time; after all, he ''is'' Desmond's ''ancestor''. [[CaptainObvious So yeah.]] * CombatPragmatist: Much like Altair and Ezio before him, Connor fights very dirty, with his arsenal including the use of [[BulletproofHumanShield human shields to block musket fire.]] * CoolHat: When he's piloting the ''[[CoolBoat Aquila]]'' or otherwise wearing the costume for it, Connor sports a tricorn. * TheCorruptible: ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}} alludes to him being this--he repeatedly takes "Sky Journeys" to gain new powers, but each time, visions of his mother warn him that he is becoming deluded and turned aside from his original path. How or why is left ambiguous, as Connor's behavior is only subtly changed. [[spoiler: The ending implies that he has been gaining a lust for power that leads to him planning to claim the Apple for himself, right before the vision the entire DLC takes place in abruptly ends. While the nature of his corruption remains ambiguous, following the vision, once Washington gives him the Apple, Connor is able to force himself to weigh it down and drop it in the ocean.]] * CustomUniform: Connor's Assassin outfit is described as being an Assassin outfit that he personally modified into its current incarnation. * [[spoiler: DeadGuyJunior: Achilles gave him the name Connor, which was the name of his own (long since deceased) son]]. * [[spoiler: DeflectorShields: The Shard of Eden, Captain Kidd's ring, that has a chance of deflecting bullets.]] * {{Determinator}}: Essentially becomes Connor's defining trait by the end of the game. Even in the face of inevitability, he will ''not'' stop fighting. -->'''[[spoiler: Charles Lee]]''': Even those men you sought to save have turned their backs on you, yet you fight, you resist... Why? -->'''Connor''': Because no one else will! * DoomedHometown: Connor's village is destroyed during his early years, helping to drive him to the Assassins in a search for justice. ** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]: While the burning of his village has a huge impact on him...the survivors rebuild it and you can visit it and talk to people there whenever you like when Connor is an adult. [[spoiler: That is until the post-game, where the townspeople have been evicted by the colonists and the whole place is deserted.]] * DualWielding: Connor never wields a single weapon, and always has a dagger or hidden blade ready in his off-hand. ** GunsAkimbo: Connor can wield dual pistols. However, he uses them in a relatively realistic fashion, using one at a time and switching hands when one pistol goes dry. * DudeWheresMyRespect: A problem for him. On the one hand it's justified on the parts of some of the disrespectful American commanders: The Assassins have essentially no presence in the colonies so when Connor initially approaches them during battles, they don't see a highly trained and very strong man but rather just another early-twenties ostensible patriot and probable dumb farm boy. On the other hand Connor himself handles these situations...somewhat less than gracefully, which probably doesn't help matters. * EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Subverted or possibly inverted; English is very clearly his second language, and early in the game he's very hesitant to speak because of it. However, this turns in on itself later in the game, since he doesn't use [[AntiquatedLinguistics colloquialisms or contractions]] when speaking. As a result of this and his preference for strong, clear, and concise language, his delivery comes off as somewhat sophisticated. * AFatherToHisMen[=/=]PapaWolf: Connor would never shy away from helping out those who live with him in his homestead, even going so far as to risk his own life for simple tasks if it makes theirs a happier one. ** Which leads to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when he winds up chasing pigs into a pen, shouting "The things I do for this place!" * ForestRanger: What with his bow carrying, tree-running, tracking and all. Especially with how he defends the early, heavily-forested Homestead. * FriendToAllLivingThings: Connor is very affectionate with domesticated animals and tries to make his hunting kills as clean as possible, sometimes thanking the animal in Mohawk while skinning it. In fact, if you start killing animals for sport, without skinning them, the Animus will desynchronize. * GentleGiant: He's not ''incredibly'' tall, and he's a skinny kid, but as an adult Connor is very heavily and solidly built--look at his thighs, or his shoulders and back--and is fittingly extremely powerful. Personality-wise, he's also possibly the nicest and kindest and sincerely sweetest Assassin we've yet played as. * HalfBreedDiscrimination: Once Connor starts getting infamous amongst the enemy, variants of it becomes a common taunt. * HandicappedBadass: Low key, but he is clearly suffering from chronic pain long after being impaled on a piece of wood while [[spoiler:chasing Lee]]. Doesn't [[GameplayAndStorySegregation impact him outside of cutscenes]] though. * HatesBeingTouched: And whenever someone does (particularly when he's only just met them), he has a dictionary of subtle but hilarious reactions. Likely due to his culture and upbringing, as it is considered rude to touch someone you don't know in Mohawk Culture. ** He loosens up a lot with friends and relations, but even then it's probably best if you [[http://youtu.be/p909sxTYkGo?t=15s don't sneak up on him.]] * HighlyVisibleNinja: He's noticeably more out in the open than Altair or Ezio ever were. On the other hand, he has an actual excuse to wear white robes, as they're good camouflage during winter. ** His longcoat ensemble is also rather standard, other than the coloring and keeping the hood up at all times, and he seems to be wearing street clothes under it. Ezio and Altair's robes, however, were rather distinctive uniforms. * HumbleHero * TheHunter: Of Templars. Emphasized with his longbow, which he literally uses for hunting animals. * ImportantHaircut: Cuts his hair into a mohawk before the last sequence when he [[spoiler: goes after Charles Lee]]. * ImprobableAge: Connor's martial skills are extremely strong for a 17-year old, as even before he acquires Assassin training, he appears to have a full repertoire of fighting abilities with the tomahawk. * ImprobableWeaponUser: Connor can use his hunting snare during a counter to strangle his enemies. * InTheHood: Although he [[TheCoatsAreOff puts it down]] when he [[spoiler: goes after Charles Lee]], and it stays down in the Homestead afterwards. * KnifeNut: As long as his left hand is free, he'll use a Hidden Blade in combination with any weapon you wield. He can also swap out his tomahawk for a variety of daggers. * KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Achilles gave him the name "Connor" due to [[TheUnpronouncable pronunciation difficulties]], and nobody outside of his tribe refers to him by his birth name. ** Though it appears at least a few of his friends know that Connor isn't his birth name; as Norris (who also goes under an assumed name) puts it, "Names change, but the person stays the same. Isn't that right, ''Connor''?" ** Further played with in ''The Tyranny Of King Washington'', where due having to never met Achilles in the AlternateHistory and thus not receiving the name "Connor", everyone instead refers to him by either his birthname or simply, "The Man wearing a Wolf". * LightningBruiser: Connor is faster and more agile than Ezio and Altair. As a result he can flit from enemy to enemy and dispatch them with his tomahawk and hidden blade quicker, and he is more versatile in combat than his predecessors. Though he typically avoided the impressive brute-force shows of strength that Ezio was famous for in favor of quick clean kills. * LikeFatherLikeSon: Like Haytham, Connor has a very low tolerance for taking crap from others. They also have issues with shaking hands when meeting new people. * MamasBoy: In the semi-alternate universe of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Connor is still living alone with his mother as an adult. Since Connor is transported into that "universe" with his true memories including those of his mother's death, he is more or less stunned into doing whatever his miraculously-still-alive mother asks. * AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted (pointedly). WordOfGod even says that Connor was a virgin for the duration of the game. This is not at all a surprise; the game makes it pretty clear that Connor couldn't find a place in his life for companionship like that, not while he was still so focused on Lee and the Revolution. * MeaningfulName: Connor means ''wolf kin, lover of wolves'', and his birth name Ratohnhaké:ton means "a life that is scratched", i.e. a life of struggle. [[spoiler: The former becomes all the more meaningful in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC.]] * MixedAncestry: Connor is half-English and half-Native American, namely Mohawk. * NiceHat: Wears a tricorn while captaining the ''Aquila''. * NiceGuy: In his day-to-day life, Connor is pretty meek. He is also passionate about making sure his friends are happy and well-cared for, and is very respectful to anyone he considers a friend for, regardless of station or their societal relationship to him. * NotInThisForYourRevolution: Played with. At first, Connor is extremely sympathetic to the Colonies, though he is bothered by their hypocritical desire to be free despite owning slaves and forcing people off their land. Played straight after [[spoiler:he finds out that [[BrokenPedestal Washington]] has been attacking Native villages, including his own, and was the one behind his mother's death. After that, he only helps the Colonies when it suits him.]] * NoPronunciationGuide: Seriously, ''Ratohnhaké:ton''. For clarity's sake, it's pronounced ''"Ra-don-ha-gay-don"''. * OneManArmy: A literal example, mixed with HopeBringer. When he enters a conflict and starts mowing down opponents as they try to reload muskets, the side he's fighting for has a high morale boost. * PoisonedWeapons: The Poison Darts. * ProfessionalKiller * RebelliousRebel: Connor supports the American Revolution because he believes that the colonists are defending their liberty. However, his stake in the matter is mostly that he happens to be good friends with the founding fathers and is fiercely loyal to them in a personal sense. He doesn't particularly care for the war itself and mostly just treats it as scenery. * RenaissanceMan: Canonically, he's a hunter, Assassin, naval captain, explorer, entrepreneur, merchant, and manager of the multiple businesses in his homestead, all of which are in professional capacity and for which individually he could have made a living out of. Connor doesn't fit the mold of the Renaissance men of the time, who focused on scholarship, but the wide variety of Connor's trade skills are similarly impressive (and hold to philosophy of the polymath). * ShipperOnDeck: For [[spoiler: Myriam and Norris.]] * TheStoic: Connor is explicitly described as a very stoic person. ** NotSoStoic: While relatively restrained, he expresses anger very clearly. * SuperPowerLottery: Over the course of the ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}, he gains three powers from his "Sky World Journeys" after drinking Red Willow tea. They can be described as AntiFrustrationFeatures taken UpToEleven. ** HavingABlast: '''Bear Might''', the last power learned, summons the form of a giant bear around Connor as he slams his hands into the ground, causing an explosion around him that will instantly kill most nearby foes and knock down foes in a wider range. It's also used to destroy large structural objects. ** {{Invisibility}}: The '''Wolf Cloak''', the first power learned drains his health constantly to turn him completely invisible and undetectable. He can also summon wolves to take out multiple enemies (though that loses usefulness when Bear Might is introduced). Dogs can see through it. ** NotQuiteFlight: '''Eagle Flight''', the second power learned, shapeshifts him into a an illusory eagle temporarily to let him fly up or between high points. Spamming it will get you what is probably the fastest land traveling speed in the series. * ThighHighBoots: A RareMaleExample. ** And since close inspection of the render reveals that his "boots" are actually held up by suspenders to a belt, he arguably qualifies as an Even Rarer Male Example of StockingFiller. ** It seems he's wearing normal boots--he just also wraps furs around his legs from the ankles on up. Presumably thick pants are at a premium. * ThisMeansWarpaint: Connor puts on warpaint and gives himself a mohawk shortly before [[spoiler:his final confrontation with Charles Lee.]] * TheUnpronounceable: The main reason why Achilles gives him the name Connor. There is a secondary reason in allowing him to pass for a Spaniard or Italian, but it's mainly because of the pronunciation difficulties. -->'''Connor''': My name is Ratohnhaké:ton. -->'''Achilles''': Right...[[CrowningMomentOfFunny well, I am not even going to try to pronounce that]]. * [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: By killing Haytham, his father]]. * WellDoneSonGuy: Played with. Though he's hostile to Haytham for abandoning him and ordering the burning of his village, [[spoiler: though the truth is a bit more complicated]], he's still willing to work with Haytham and holds out hope that they can come to an understanding and form a connection. [[spoiler: Ultimately though he chooses his allegiance with the Assassins over his father's approval.]] * WhenHeSmiles: Played straight during a few Homestead missions. Throws Charles Lee a rather apathetic one when confronting him [[spoiler: at Haytham's funeral.]] * WideEyedIdealist: With bits of NaiveNewcomer in his early years. ** Also due to his belief that [[spoiler: Assassins and Templars could work together.]] Though a bit of a subversion as it actually almost appears to be possible, right up until [[spoiler: he catches Haytham trying to manipulate him.]] * WrestlerInAllOfUs: Some of his moves involve wrestling moves, including drop kicks, [=DDTs=], suplexes, and clotheslines. * YoungerThanHeLooks: The game spans his journey from ages 18-28, during which time he could pass for a man in his mid to late 30s. He looks younger if his hair is cropped or in a mohawk, though. !!Aveline de Grandpré [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Aveline_de_Grandpr_AC_3370.png]] -->'''Voiced By''': Amber Goldfarb ->''"I seek liberty and freedom, not for myself, but for those whom such fundamental rights are denied. I am their shield, their sword, their only hope. The roads I travel are dark, but they bring me closer to the light."'' The daughter of an female African aristocrat and French merchant in New Orleans, she lived a privileged life that others like her could not. Her outspoken nature and vocal opposition to slavery was only allowed due to her father’s protection. She was recruited into the Assassin Order in 1759. ---- * ActionGirl * AnEntrepreneurIsYou * {{Badass}} ** BackToBackBadasses: With Connor. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: The hidden blade is a Type 1. * ButNotTooBlack: Deliberately invoked, and Aveline can use this to her advantage because she can put on a dress to look like a member of the aristocracy, or put on rags to pretend to be a slave. During a party, some gossipers do comment on her complexion but don't openly insult her for it. * DualWielding * HistoricalVillainUpgrade / HistoricalHeroUpgrade: InUniverse. [[spoiler: Abstergo's propaganda make her out to be an indoctrinated Assassin who finaly "atones" by joining the Templars.]] * HotChickInABadassSuit: She gives us the 18th Century equivalent of this, running around in a snappy men's uniform with a tripoint hat. The aversion of ChainmailBikini female action costume design has been praised by fans. * KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Her lady persona, and even her assassin persona is pretty fancy. * LadyOfWar: A noblewoman who's also an Assassin. * LeParkour * MacheteMayhem: She has a sugarcane machete in her arsenal. * MixedAncestry: French father, African mother. * NecessaryDrawback: All three of Aveline's personas have drawbacks. Her Lady persona lets her charm or bribe guards so she can waltz right past checkpoints, but the dress makes any kind of climbing impossible and also slows you down. Her Slave persona does let her climb around, and it has a bunch of unique blending options, but your notoriety also rises higher for doing anything unusual, including climbing. The Slave persona is also weaker in combat, due to not being as heavily armed as her Assassin persona. The drawback to the Assassin persona is that your notoriety is always at a minimum of 1 (possibly because seeing a woman covered in weapons running around is too unusual to NOT investigate). * NiceHat * ParasolOfPain * PimpedOutDress: She can [[http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-23/ac3l-aveline-aristocrat-guise.html wear one as part of her noble persona]], allowing her to move freely around the upper parts of society. * PoisonedWeapons: Like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII Ezio's]] poison dart, Aveline uses a blowpipe to a similar effect. * PrincessInRags: She is a lady of high society, both as a disguise and before the events that turned her towards the Assassins, and her persona as a slave woman is purposefully low class and allows her to blend into the background. * ProfessionalKiller * SlaveLiberation * SpiritedYoungLady * WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was considered as a possible love interest for Connor in the ''Tyranny of King Washington''. * WhipItGood: Used in both combat and to help her LeParkour skills. * WithDueRespect: Her relationship with Agate. !!Achilles Davenport [[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AchillesAC_9370.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Roger Aaron Brown A Master Assassin of British and Caribbean descent, he is the mentor of Connor, residing at his homestead. By the time Connor finds him, he has become a broken shell of a man who oversaw the utter destruction of his Order at the hands of the Templars and has lost the will to fight. ---- * [[AchillesInHisTent Achilles In His Homestead]]: {{Pun}} notwithstanding, [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as he is old and not in the physical condition he used to be. Until Connor came along, he had no organization left to support him either, and there was little he could do alone anymore. * {{Badass}} ** BadassGrandpa ** BadassInANiceSuit: Has the 18th Century equivalent of one. ** BadassMustache: Albeit a more subtle example than most. ** BadassTeacher: To Connor ** HandicappedBadass: His age might have weakened his body, but he can still kick ass if he catches you by surprise. ** RetiredBadass * CoolOldGuy * TheCynic: Appears to have this view in comparison to the idealistic Connor. * GrumpyOldMan: His introductory mission is even called [[LampshadeHanging "A Boorish Man."]] He mellows out after a while, though. * KnightInSourArmor * [[spoiler: LifeWillKillYou: He dies in his sleep in 1781, and Connor buries him next to the graves of his wife and child, with the rest of the Homestead's residents attending his funeral.]] * MeaningfulName: Named Achilles, has difficulty walking. * TheMentor ** CynicalMentor ** [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard: Subverted. He does die, but in his sleep, and does not enter combat.]] * MixedAncestry: Of Caribbean and English descent. * NiceHat * OldMaster * ParentalSubstitute: To an extent, especially if you discover that [[spoiler:he named "Connor" after his long-deceased son]]. * ProfessionalKiller * RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: [[spoiler: In his posthumous letter he states that Connor restored his faith in the Brotherhood and its mission.]] * SinkOrSwimMentor: He leaves the wanted Connor behind in Boston, for him to find a way out of the situation and the city. !!Agate -->'''Voiced By:''' Tristan D. Lalla The Mentor of the Assassin Order in New Orleans, Agate is a former slave who escaped from jail and took refuge in the Louisiana marshes. He conflicts with Aveline over her impulsiveness and acting without consulting him. ---- * AngryBlackMan * BaldBlackLeaderGuy * [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]] * [[spoiler:FinalExamBoss]] * TheMentor * ProfessionalKiller * TookALevelInJerkAss: After Aveline chooses to spare one of her targets, Agate quickly goes from soft-spoken mentor into an irrational, paranoid, impatient, condescending, racist asshole. !!Robert Faulkner [[quoteright:285:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RobertFaulknerAC_2113.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Kevin [=McNally=] The first mate on the Aquila, Faulkner joined the Assassins in 1753. He resides on the Homestead next to the Aquila's dock and helps Connor gather a crew for the vessel to combat the Templars at sea. ---- * ActorAllusion[=/=]{{Expy}}: Kevin [=McNally=] portraying a somewhat portly FatherNeptune who's recruited back into action while drunk, gathers your crew, makes reference to Singapore, and serves as a somewhat superstitious first mate? Why, hello there, [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Mr. Gibbs]]! * BadassBeard * CoolOldGuy * DeadpanSnarker * DrowningMySorrows: After the Aquila was sunk and the Brotherhood in America was almost completely destroyed. He only stops when Connor joins the Assassins and begins rebuilding the Order and his ship. * FatherNeptune * InsistentTerminology: Sets Connor straight every time he mucks up sailor terms, especially calling the Aquila "it" and a "boat." * TheLancer: Serves as first mate on the Aquila. * NumberTwo: On the Aquila. * SeaDogBeard * WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He isn't seen or mentioned again after the first memory of the third episode of the ''Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC. !!Gérald Blanc -->'''Voiced By:''' Olivier Lamarche An accountant who works for Philippe Olivier de Grandpre, he was recruited into the Assassin Order alongside Aveline and serves as a information officer. ---- * ChildhoodFriendRomance * NonActionGuy: In fact, the one time he ''tried'' to not be a NonActionGuy, he decided he had enough excitement to last a lifetime. * TheSmartGuy !!Stephane Chapheau -->'''Voiced By:''' Shawn Baichoo A immigrant from Montréal to Boston. After he is robbed and oppressed by Templar agents, Stephane swears his allegiance to Connor, becoming his first Assassin recruit. ---- * {{Badass}}: Even before joining the Assassins. When Connor first encounters him, he's fighting off a squad of Templar soldiers. His post-battle dialogue implies that this has happened before and that he beat them back. He can even hold his own against elite Scottish during his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. If anything, Connor just helped him realize his true enemy and convince him to make clean kills. * CanadaEh: He grew up in Lower Canada (present-day eastern Quebec), as revealed during his French ranting. * GratuitousFrench: Particularly when angry. * HotBlooded * KnifeNut: Wields a meat cleaver. He cleaves meat with it. * TheLancer: To Connor. * RedOniBlueOni: Red to Connor's Blue. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Except replace "roaring" with "loud French ranting." !!Duncan Little -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A former Irish priest, Duncan joins the Assassins' after Connor helps him stop a Templar controlled gang in north Boston. ---- * BadassPreacher: Well, former priest. * BigDamnHeroes: If you look ''real'' closely in the background during [[spoiler:Connor being "escorted" to the gallows, Duncan can be seen performing a rooftop sentry assassination in preparation for the eventual rescue]]. * DestinedBystander[=/=]EarlyBirdCameo: He was the child who witnessed [[spoiler:Haytham assassinate his uncle Miko in the opera house]]. * ReligiousBruiser[=/=]RealMenLoveJesus * [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Uncle]] !!Clipper Wilkinson -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A surveyor and hunter from Virginia, Clipper joined the Assassins' after Connor helped him stop the forced recruitment into the British army of men in south Boston by Templar agents. ---- * BlackSheep: He hails from a family of Loyalists, but felt compelled to stop the forced conscription by the Templars. He figures that such actions place him on the Patriot side of the conflict, but Connor assures him that he's an Assassin, neither Patriot nor Loyalist. * CantHoldHisLiquor: He doesn't drink anymore, as his poor alcohol tolerance lead to an embarrassing incident in the past. * FriendlySniper: Recruiting him gives Connor the ability to order his Assassins to snipe targets. !!Deborah "Dobby" Carter [[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DeborahCarterAC_249.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Angela Galuppo A courier in New York City, Deborah was an orphan who dressed as a boy to get work on the docks. When she got older, she became known as a problem solver in northern New York, looking out for the poor and underprivileged. She joined the Assassins' after Connor assisted her in stopping the exploitation of New York civilians by a Templar. ---- * ActionGirl * ConvenientlyAnOrphan * {{Courier}} * InTheHood * JustLikeRobinHood: She would rob corrupt merchants and distribute their goods. Shaun of course {{Lampshades}} this in her database entry. * TheSmurfettePrinciple: She is the only female Assassin in Connor's chapter. * ShipTease: The only woman in the game to make a pass at Connor. ** MrsRobinson: ...who is 20 years her junior. Although that is according to the Animus database, which gives some similarly improbable birthdates for some of the other Assassin recruits. * RummageSaleReject: There are so many things...''off'' about her outfit. ** She's wearing a formal jacket/coat, over a barely visible blouse that folds outward so that her chest is bare. ** She wears normal trousers with the coat. ** The shirt tails of two different shirts stick out from the coat untucked. ** She wears a leather belt outside of the coat, which is tied instead of buckled, despite the buckle being clearly visible, and another belt ''under'' the coat. ** And she attached a leather hood and shoulder pads to the cloth formal-wear that is of a completely different style. ** The collar of the jacket is actually detached from the lapels and sticks straight up while the lapels lay flat. * SweetPollyOliver: When she was young, she dressed as a boy to get work on the docks, hence the nickname "Dobby". Most people saw through it, but used her anyway since she was so smart and reliable. She stopped when she hit puberty. * WeNeedADistraction: Recruiting her lets Connor order the Assassins to distract guards. !!Jacob Zenger -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A German mercenary, Zenger left the army after arriving in New York, deciding he wanted to settle down on a farm. After that failed, he became a bodyguard in eastern New York, where he met Connor and joined the Assassins' while helping to stop a Templar British officer who was imposing martial law in the district. ---- * BaldOfAwesome * GuileHero: He's the one who provides Connor's Assassins with the whole "disguise" idea. * HappilyMarried: Enough that he wants his family to join him in the Americas, war or no war. !!Jamie Colley -->'''Voiced By:''' Marcel Jeannin A doctor's assistant in western New York, Jamie joined the Assassins' while working with Connor to control a Templar arranged outbreak of smallpox in the district. ---- * AnAxeToGrind * BadassBeard * CombatMedic * NiceHat !!Louis Mills -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A sailor upon the Providence who attempted to assassinate Haytham while crossing the Atlantic. ---- * BewareTheNiceOnes: Before revealing his intentions, Haytham believed him to be one of the few trustworthy crew members. * {{Foreshadowing}}: The red sash around his waist clues in on his allegiance. * FriendlyEnemy: He and Haythem get along well, to the point that Louis wants him to surrender and promises to treat him with honor as a captive, and gives him a sword when he choses to resist. * HonorBeforeReason: A Templar and an Assassin are on the same boat together. The Templar, not knowing the Assassin's allegiance, considers him trustworthy. The Assassin, rather than simply murder him in his sleep, instead leaves clues for an Assassin vessel to follow their own vessel. When the other ship arrives, the Assassin reveals his nature to the unarmed Templar, who asks for a weapon. The Assassin complies with this request. How many things are wrong with this scenario? [[/folder]] [[folder:Templars]] !!Haytham Kenway [[quoteright:248:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Haytham_Kenway_9116.jpg]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Adrian Hough The father of Connor, Haytham traveled to the American colonies with the key to the Central Vault in the hopes of relieving it of its contents. He is the [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler playable ancestor for Sequences 1, 2, and 3]]. The end of the latter reveals him to be a Templar. ---- * [[AffablyEvil Affably Morally Ambiguous]]: He seems genuinely sorry about the assassination in the opera house. ** Though it's also turned on its head with the implication that he really didn't have to kill that man, in which case the fact that he didn't seem all ''that'' bothered is equally telling. * AmazonChaser: Is this to [[spoiler: Ziio,]] who's quite badass in her own right. * AntiVillain: Type III, like most Templars. * ArchnemesisDad * ApologeticAttacker: Apologizes before killing his target in the opera house. * AuraVision: Like other protagonists in the series, Haytham has Eagle Vision. * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Grandmaster of the American branch of the Templars. Also a competent fighter proficient in fistfighting, fencing, the use of pistols and muskets, and hidden blades. * AwesomenessByAnalysis: On several occasions (the opera at the very start or the first mission with Hickey, for instance) he takes one look at a hostile area and formulates a route or plan to go right through it. * {{Badass}} ** BackToBackBadasses: With [[spoiler: Connor]] in quite a few memories. ** BadassCape * BecauseISaidSo: His excuse for bossing Connor around. * BerserkButton: Insulting him results in a warning via death threat or a straight up beat down if you are of no use to him. Betraying the Templar Order is also this as [[spoiler:Braddock and Church]] found out. Both cases still manifest as TranquilFury though. In [[spoiler: Church's case]], the fury was a bit less tranquil than usual. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: [[DualWielding Dual wields]] Hidden Blades. * BigBad: Grandmaster of the local Templars. * TheBrute: It's subtle, but his fighting style and his preference for out-and-out murder as an all-purpose solution marks him as one. * BluntYes: Gives this answer to Connor when the latter asks if they were just going to attack the Red Coats and beat the answers out of them. * ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: He's the final major opponent fought by Connor (Charles Lee goes down without a fight one chapter later), and is perhaps the best enemy swordsman in the game.]] ** PuzzleBoss [[spoiler: He can only be defeated with one very specific move. [[ViewersAreMorons The game gives this move away in big text the moment the boss fight starts.]]]] * DeadpanSnarker: His father/son moments with Connor are pretty much the Crowning Moment of Snarky on his behalf. * [[spoiler:DeathEqualsRedemption: Averted. He remains loyal to his Templar ideals until the very end and openly mocks this trope in his final speech.]] ** [[spoiler: DefiantToTheEnd]] ** [[spoiler: IRegretNothing]] * DecoyProtagonist: For the first three sequences. * EnemyMine: He works with Connor to take down [[spoiler:Benjamin Church]], who stole important resources from the Templars. * [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: While he never publicly admits he actually ''loved'' her (although his journal is a bit more talkative), he's noticeably saddened when he learns of Ziio's death.]] ** Even though the game has only a hints of this, the tie-in novel reveals that he did indeed love his son, going so far as [[spoiler: helping to save him from the gallows at the expense of his fellow Templar's life.]] * EvilBrit: Sort of, considering he is a Templar. In his case, it usually manifests by killing you off without as much of a thought, but in a very polite way. * EvilMentor: Appears to be trying to do this with Connor, corrupting him away from his goals and turning him to a Templar worldview. * [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]] * FaceHeelTurn: Shaun places it as likely, since his father was an Assassin. * TheFettered: Despite his [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness interrogative tendencies]], he disapproves of unfettered behaviour like murdering innocents, enslaving potential allies, and focusing on objectives he's put off for later. * GoodOldFisticuffs: He prefers to brutalize his foes with just his bare hands on occasion ([[EnforcedTrope at which point your weapons are locked out]]). * ImperturbableEnglishman: For the most part, he's cool, calm, witty and {{Badass}} -- a JamesBond figure in a mid-1700's setting. ** On top of that, in the German version he has the same voice actor as {{Daniel Craig}}. * IntroOnlyPointOfView: Only in Sequences 1, 2, and 3. * JerkassHasAPoint: Unlike other Templar leaders we know from across the series, Haytham actually stands for defendable beliefs and has some very solid arguments to back them up, being more of a WellIntentionedExtremist than a real villain, which finally turns the Assassin/Templar battle from good vs. evil to a true clash of equally valid standpoints. * LargeHam: Most of the time he's not, but becomes this when [[spoiler: beating up Benjamin Church.]] * LeParkour * LightningBruiser: Very strong with a brute force fighting style but just as agile as an Assassin. * MeaningfulName: Haytham is apparently an Arabic name meaning "Young Eagle", which would certain fit in with the ThemeNaming of previous protagonists Altair and Ezio. * MurderIsTheBestSolution: Like most Templars, he places very little value on any individual's life. * NiceHat: A tricorn. * NotSoDifferent: The way he moves and operates is nearly identical to an Assassin's, to the point that his being a Templar is TheReveal. This is because he was formerly an Assassin. ** More specifically, he was secretly groomed to become an Assassin by his father, but Templars assassinated the later and recruited Haytham into their order before he could be properly initiated into the Assassins. ** Similarly, his difficult relationship with his son is somewhat similar to William's relationship with his son. ** Also, his habit of killing people for disagreeing with him or just being an inconvenience and the ruthlessness with which he pursues his goals makes him not too different from General Braddock, who he criticizes early in the game for being a GeneralRipper. * OneManArmy: Like father, like son. * [[spoiler: ShadowDictator: His goal is to essentially become this for the budding United States with Charles Lee as president subordinate to him.]] * SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler:His last words to Connor has him complimenting his son in a way.]] -->[[spoiler:Still, I'm proud of you in a way. You have shown great conviction. Strength. Courage. All noble qualities... [[WorthyOpponent I should have killed you long ago]].]] * TheSouthpaw: As seen in his first scene on the ship, he writes with his left hand. ** Actually, if you look close enough during the scenes on the you can see he writes with both hands. * StrongFamilyResemblance: With Connor. * VillainProtagonist: For the first three sequences. * VillainousFriendship: Type I, Haytham looks out for Lee's well being and won't hear a word against him, meanwhile Lee fanboyed over Haytham in his youth and [[spoiler:plans on enacting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Connor for killing Haytham]]. * VisualPun: Many {{Character Tic}}s and visual cues give hints that he's a Templar. One very early one is that he never takes off his NiceHat and he doesn't have a hood (something every other Assassin always has with them). * WalkingSpoiler: Despite being a major character, his whole existence was successfully(!) kept a secret from the audiences for pretty much two years and his sole appearance in some of the game reviews could be considered a major spoiler for those who have yet to play the game. * WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife: Expresses this after annihilating a slaver encampment. * YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Unlike Connor, who prefers to let others go after interrogation, Haytham will simply kill them off after he's done or if he thinks they have nothing useful to tell him. This is apparently because he's unwilling to bother with prisoner maintenance. !!Charles Lee [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Charles_Lee_Assassins_Creed_4212.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Neil Napier A British officer with a constant thirst for power, who joins the Templar order and quickly ends up becoming Haytham's second in command. ---- * AmbitionIsEvil: Even ignoring his other horrible acts, he does some pretty nasty things in his efforts to become Commander-in-Chief. * ArchEnemy: To Connor. * BadassMustache * ButForMeItWasTuesday: It takes several encounters with Connor before he recognizes him as the native american boy he threatened all those years ago. * CreepyBlueEyes * CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: [[spoiler:Tells the imprisoned Connor this, "had you done what I asked" after their previous encounter as a child.]] * TheDragon: To Haytham. ** [[spoiler:DragonAscendant: After Haytham is killed by Connor.]] * EvilIsPetty: See below * [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: Shares a drink with Connor in a pub while both are bleeding out, before Connor stabs him.]] * {{Fanboy}}: Of Haytham, who out and out says that he thinks Charles Lee overestimates him. ** AscendedFanboy: Is a part of the Templar order, just like his idol. * FromNobodyToNightmare: First appears as a fresh-faced Templar hopeful, later becomes TheDragon with designs of becoming Commander-In-Chief, [[spoiler:and ultimately becoming DragonAscendant intent on ruining everything Connor holds dear]]. * FullNameBasis: Those close to him do call him "Charles", but Connor consistently uses his full name. * GracefulLoser: He took his fate reather well. * TheHeavy: While Haytham is the BigBad, Lee is the one who drives Connor's story arc, from their first encounter when Connor's a child to their final clash 30 years on. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: The real life Charles Lee has a pretty bad rap--he was a complete sleaze and TheResenter and he is famous for ordering a retreat against higher orders and retreating his men right into the rest of the army and causing a massacre. Nowadays, some historians consider the retreat justified and a case of ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight that was the only morally and tactically sound choice, but Charles Lee in the game plays off his blatant failure and is actively trying to sabotage the revolution. * JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope / VillainousBreakdown / RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: After Haytham is killed, he threatens to kill all of Connor's allies, family, and friends while making him watch. By this point, he's stopped caring about the Templar Order's higher goals and [[ItsPersonal just wants pay back.]]]] * LeeroyJenkins: Shows signs of this during the prologue missions, but largely holds back due to deferring to the much more meticulous Haytham. Definitely becomes much more pronounced once he comes into authority in his own right. * PetTheDog: His Animus Database entry says he really likes dogs. * PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Doesn't think highly of the Mohawk. * TheResenter: Is very bitter about Washington being chosen over him for the position of Commander-In-Chief. * SmugSnake: Incredibly arrogant and most of his schemes don't end well, especially [[spoiler: after Haytham and his other allies are killed.]] * TookALevelInJerkass: Went from a polite young man in the prologue to an arrogant and hateful man during the Revolution. Of course we only ever see him interact with Haytham and other templars in the prologue so it's possible he was always like that. ** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. Lee's jerkass behavior led Connor [[spoiler:to believe it was Lee and the Templars who attacked his village and killed his mother]], arguably jump-starting Connor's career as an Assassin. Had Lee acted as nice as he was in the prologue, [[spoiler:then Connor might have even joined the Templars in the future]]. * UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness: His Animus database entry says he has very poor hygiene. He visibly looks greasier and filthier after the TimeSkip. * VillainousFriendship: Type I, Haytham looks out for Lee's well being and won't hear a word against him, meanwhile Lee fanboyed over Haytham in his youth and [[spoiler:plans on enacting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Connor for killing Haytham]]. * VocalEvolution: In the early sequences, which take place about 20 years before the main game, his voice is high and kind of boyish (made more noticeable by the fact he spends much of his time fanboying over Haytham). In the main timeline, he sounds like he's channeling ChristopherLee. * [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: Why Connor hates him so. [[spoiler:However it is later revealed he did not kill his mother. Connor still hates him though]] !!Thomas Hickey -->'''Voiced By:''' Allen Leech A Irish born soldier in the British army, he served under William Johnson and joined the Templar Order alongside him. He ran a counterfeiting business for the Templars, and was also assigned to kill George Washington after he joined the Continental Army. ---- * DirtyCoward: While his reaction to Connor is rather calm, he orders his men to get him while bolting out the door. * TheDragon: To Charles Lee. * HannibalHasAPoint: [[spoiler:Before he dies, he tells Connor how at least he was able to obtain his dream of having lots of money and women, but Connor will never obtain his dream of completely wiping out evil and corruption. The ending proves him right - both for Connor and Desmond.]] * TheHedonist: A self-professed one at that. -->"I'm the type of guy who likes to have a beer in one hand and a titty in the other!" * {{Jerkass}} * NinjaLooter: When he expresses the desire to loot fallen bodies on a battle field, Haytham tells him off... [[GameplayAndStorySegregation even as the player likely]] [[HypocriticalHumour does so as the dialogue plays out]]. * NotInThisForYourRevolution: He doesn't hold to the Templar's beliefs; [[OnlyInItForTheMoney he just likes the paycheck]]. * SmugSnake * TheSpymaster: He helped run the Templar's spy rings thanks to his underground connections. !!Benjamin Church -->'''Voiced By:''' Harry Standjofski A doctor recruited by the Templars, Church served as the Surgeon-General for the Continental Army. ---- * AssholeVictim: Becomes this retroactively when you learn he only became a doctor to extort money from people, [[spoiler: not to mention screwing over every single faction for a quick buck.]] * [[spoiler:AwkwardFatherSonBondingActivity: Effectively serves as the "activity" by way of being an EnemyMine.]] * BookEnd: We first come across Church as he is getting beat up by Thatcher.

[[spoiler: Unlike Hickey this wasn't enough to keep him loyal when a better deal came along.]] *** [[spoiler: However, his death monologue hints he grew dillusioned with the Templars vs. Assassins, Patriots vs. Brittish conflicts and the whole GrayAndGreyMorality behind it all.]] !!Jonathan "John" Pitcairn -->'''Voiced By''' Robert Lawrenson A Major of the British Marines, he was Connor's target during the Battle of Bunker Hill. ---- * AntiVillain * MajorlyAwesome * NiceHat: A tricorn. * [[spoiler:PoorCommunicationKills]] * WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:He wanted to parley and ''prevent'' the Revolutionary War... for Templar benefit, yes, but also to save lives.]] !!William Johnson -->'''Voiced By:''' Julian Casey An official of the British Empire responsible for negotiating with local Indian tribes.

Connor helps Washington win several battles during the Revolutionary War. Washington is the BigBad of the DLC "The Tyranny of King Washington". Having found a Piece of Eden, Washington goes mad with power and declares himself king of the United States, forgetting everything he fought for and turning the United States into a hellhole. ---- !Normal: * {{Badass}} ** BadassCape ** BadassLongcoat ** FourStarBadass: General after all. * BigGood: Functions as this for the Revolutionaries. ** GoodIsNotSoft: See WhatTheHellHero for why Connor stopped viewing him as such. * TheDragon: Effectively during Haytham's sequences for Braddock. * [[spoiler:BrokenPedestal:]] For Connor. See WhatTheHellHero below. ** However, [[spoiler:in the epilogue, the two at least play a bit of bocce together.]] * EarlyBirdCameo: Makes a brief appearance in Sequence 3 as one of Braddock's officers, but doesn't enter the big picture until much later. * HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Averted. While Washington is shown to be a fairly decent leader and does become Connor's friend, the game doesn't shy away from showing Washington's less-appealing traits. ** Though the game does its best to hide some of them. Washington in the game is rather staid and placid, while in real life his dominant traits outside of social situations were impatience and mild condescension towards his peers (which was a suitable attitude for someone of his standing). ** One omission that stands out is his lack of ambition. One of Washington's most notable traits, and one that is fairly well-known, was the fact that he made it a rule to hide his intense ambitions beneath a veneer of humility and politeness (very nonstandard amongst British-style educated elites for that fact that he bothered to hide anything at all), and that he did in fact crave a certain amount of power (which, granted, tapered off severely by the time his presidency was over). In the main game his purity and humility is {{Flanderized}}, although the DLC plays with this one[[hottip:*:its ending has him sternly reject the suggestions of a voice that he should crown himself king, only to look up and realize that the room was empty of anyone except himself]]. * HumbleHero: In keeping with history. He actually did say, paraphrased, "I'm not worthy of this command," to the Continental Congress. Whether this was humility or honest self-appraisal is left to the viewer. ** In the epilogue, Connor can have a chat with Washington, who wishes to retire to his farm and let others take care of the nation. Connor however states that after all the death and destruction he has wrought, the last thing he deserves is rest. * TheLeader: Commander-in-Chief of the Revolutionaries. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Arguably. It noticeably overlooks his personal feelings about the Natives fighting alongside the Colonists and the entire crux of TheReveal is that [[spoiler:he masterminded the raid that claimed Connor's mom and briefly his village in 1760. In our history, Washington had been retired from any military service for over a year by then.]] Still far more realistic and subtle than a lot of his HistoricalHeroUpgrade-esque treatments. * NiceHat: A tricorn. * WhatTheHellHero: Is on the receiving end of this when [[spoiler:Connor learns that he ordered attacks on Connor's people since they were supporting the British, something that Washington actually did in RealLife]]. * [[spoiler: [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: After finding out Washington ordered the attack on his village that killed his mother, Connor becomes frigid towards him.]] ** [[spoiler:Becomes a bit of ArtisticLicenseHistory when you realize in real life, by the time Connor's village was burned, Washington had been retired from the military and living in Virginia for three years.]] !King Washington: * CoolCrown: It has a bald eagle in its center. * EvilIsHammy: As opposed to the normal George Washington, this Washington is prone to loud crazy speeches about how he is good for America. * EvilOverlord: Becomes one in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''. * EvilFormerFriend: To Connor. Even though in the main continuity their relationship ends poorly, Connor states that the Washington he knew would never condone senseless violence, being a man of reason at the very least. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Averted, since this is all explicitly a WhatIf scenario and thus not what actually happened in "real" history. * HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Interestingly, ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' plays this somewhat straight as well. While the alternate history Washington is TheCaligula, after witnessing the same vision as Connor, the real Washington begs Connor to dispose of the Apple, and is even more determined to not become a tyrant. * HopelessBossFight: Connor tries to fight him when the Bluecoats attack his village. Aided by the Apple and Staff, Washington easily defeats Connor. * MakeSureHesDead: Washington [[spoiler: stuns Connor with the Apple, shoots him with two flintlocks pistols, bayonets him and then shoots him with the musket. Of course, because Connor is [[MadeOfIron Connor]], this only puts him down for five months, but you can't fault George for a lack of effort.]] * ObliviouslyEvil: He seems to have legitimately little to no idea that what he's doing is ''wrong''. In between unhinged bouts of despotism and AxeCrazy behavior, he still invokes the tenants of freedom and liberty not just as political rhetoric but as genuine belief, and will speak of being "King over a free world" without irony. Of course, being exposed to the Apple probably helped cause this. * SlouchOfVillainy: Does this in the promotional artwork, and eventually in the third episode. [[spoiler: He even dies slouching in his throne.]] * TyrantTakesTheHelm * WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: He is driven mad by an Apple of Eden. * YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler: Washington kills Connor's mother with the Apple.]] !!Creator/BenjaminFranklin -->'''Voiced By:''' Jim Ward A leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat who became one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. ---- * TheAtoner: Becomes this in [[spoiler: ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' after switching sides.]] * CoolOldGuy * GentlemanAndAScholar * LikesOlderWomen: He even does a treatise on the benefits of taking an older woman as one's lover. * MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Says this word-for-word in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' when he is freed of the Apple's influence.]] * NiceGuy: In keeping with his general historical reputation * ReallyGetsAround: According to him, he has "sampled many women". !!Samuel Adams -->'''Voiced By:''' Mark Lindsay Chapman A key ally of the Assassins, Adams was one of the leading revolutionaries in Boston. He introduced Connor to many other important patriots and assisted him in finding information on Templar activities. ---- * GenreSavvy: Despite knowing nothing about the history between Connor and Lee, he immediately recognizes that Connor was ready to attack the guy and forcefully separates them before a fight could begin in the middle of Congress. * GuileHero: Generally a good fellow, but not above using propaganda and other "theater tricks" to sway opinion his way. Connor initially expresses a certain uncomfortableness with relying on dishonesty and bribery, but Sam quickly tells him that it was either that or be hanged for a crime he didn't commit. * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Killed by Putnam as part of an ambush in the second episode of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}.]] * LaResistance: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Sam Adams is the leader of the rebellion against King Washington. * MrExposition: He informs Connor about how to lower his notoriety by removing posters and bribing town criers and printers. * NiceGuy: Is very friendly with Connor and the first to break through Connor's HatesBeingTouched stance. * SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: A lot of his conversations with Connor boil down to this. !!Paul Revere -->'''Voiced By:''' Bruce Dinsmore A silversmith and leading figure in the Sons of Liberty, he assists Connor several times. ---- * {{Adorkable}}: He's just so animated and enthusiastic... * NiceHat * NoIndoorVoice: Well, he has an ''indoor'' voice, but he projects his instructions rather loudly for someone sharing the same horse. ** He also speaks quite loudly for delivering instruction to revolutionaries when the people they're revolting against are patrolling the immediate area. ** There's really no explanation for the latter, but the former could be considered [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since they should be going at a full gallop. It would be harder to hear over the sound of the horse's hoofbeats. * WelcomeToCorneria -->''EXCELLENT!

These events really happened, though Putnam exaggerates his role in them. * [[spoiler: BadBoss: Treats his troops rather poorly in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''. He even gutted a man for having dirt in his musket.]] * [[spoiler:BigDamnHeroes: After Connor escapes execuation and assassinates Thomas Hickey, Putnam arrives to stop the guards from killing Connor and proclaims him to be a hero of the Revolution.]] * CigarChomper: Is rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth, and matches the typical personality as well. It's said in the database that he may in fact be the UrExample of the CigarChomper, having picked up the habit in Havana and introduced the coolness of cigars to the Colonies. * TheCynic: Views Connor's intended courses of action at the Battle of Bunker Hill as suicidal. * [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself: He is sorry for his crimes, but also admits that the Apple just brought out the evil already inside him.]] * FourStarBadass * KnightInSourArmor * RousingSpeech: At least Connor thinks so.

To the Colonials, this is a full FaceHeelTurn, but given how strained Connor's relationship with Washington is at this point, he views it as karma for Washington's past actions. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Notably averted. While somewhat of a {{Jerkass}}, he isn't displayed as a member of the Templars and reactions to the betrayal are more about PR than morality, Connor even treating it as a TakeThat to Washington. ** If anything, this might constitute a HistoricalVillainDowngrade given that his (significant!) pre-defection corruption, generally loose morals, and legitimately petty reasons for joining the Crown are not covered; it even goes so far as to have him [[spoiler: beg Connor to stop King Washington's inhumane rampages in the noncanon Downloadable content.]] * {{Jerkass}}: He's somewhat curt to Connor; understandable, given that A) Connor's being a SpannerInTheWorks for his plans, and B) he's trying to keep Connor distracted long enough for his designs to unfold. * KarmaHoudini: Manages to get away in the confusion, and Connor couldn't care less. [[spoiler:Although he is the first assassination target in the ''Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC. Connor makes reference to Arnold's escape at West Point, which suitably confuses him due to the DLC being set in an alternate continuity that Connor is thrown into. This also confuses Xbox players who had no idea why Connor hated him.]] * NiceHat [[/folder]] [[folder:British Army]] !!Loyalists / British Army in General The core {{Mooks}} and CannonFodder of the game, these are soldiers loyal to the British crown and [[UnwittingPawn those behind the scenes]]. ---- * AlwaysChaoticEvil: Subverted. Connor initially thinks that ''all'' Loyalists are Templars, but later realizes that they're just [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood misled]] by them. * AnAxeToGrind: The weapon of the Scottish Highlanders. * BayonetYa: The primary weapon of the army overall. * CityGuards: Function as this while the British are in power. * EliteMooks: The Scottish Highlanders. * FacelessMooks: Some of the Redcoats wear obscuring scarves over their faces. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Subverted on purpose. * NiceHat: Tricorns abound and, for the Highlanders, bearskins. * [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood Not Evil, Just Misguided]]: While they are refusing to grant independence to a nation that is demanding it, they are also [[UnwittingPawn under the influence of the Templars.]] * SweetPollyOliver: Highly effeminate grunts heavily suggest that at least some of the FacelessMooks are this. Its also supported by the Redcoat multiplayer character's background. * UnwittingPawn: To the Templars. * WrittenByTheWinners: The Animus notes that the only reason the Loyalists are considered the bad guys is because the Colonists ultimately won. They '''were''' refusing to allow the colonies to become independent though, so they're not innocent either. ** Of course, the Animus notes are [[JerkassHasAPoint written by Shaun, a Britishman with a massive axe to grind on the issue]] so at least the "only reason" part of this is worth taking with a grain of salt. Particularly since a lot of their counterinsurgency tactics horrified even the Americans and *Bourbons.* !!Edward Braddock -->'''Voiced By:''' Carlo Mestroni A thoroughly unpleasant officer of the British, he used to work with Haytham and the Templars before his sheer brutality lead to a falling-out. ---- * AdaptationalAttractiveness: He appears quite young for a white-haired 60 year old, though the usual Animus-related handwaves apply; especially since Haytham knew him when he was younger. * BadBoss * DirtyCoward * EvilBrit * EvilFormerFriend: Used to work with Haytham, but his raw brutality made for irreconcilable differences between the two. ** Of course this is played with in a cute way considering they're both Templars, but EvenEvilHasStandards. * [[spoiler: EvilMentor: In an odd sort of way, to Washington.]] * GeneralFailure * GeneralRipper: These tendencies ultimately caused his split with Haytham. * HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Inverted. He begins running almost immediately after the attack on his expedition begins. Historically, he kept his cool and tried to rally the column during the attack and had several horses shot out from under him before he himself was felled. Also, unlike the game he managed to cling to life for four days after the battle. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: How much is a subject of debate, but it definitely happened. Be definitely had similar goals for his expedition to the game version, but that was partially because it would've been insane to *not* after a century or so of constant brush war in North America. His shooting one of his own men on the expedition is based on a historical allegation (that he took his sword and ran through a redcoat hiding behind a tree for cowardice). And unlike his DirtyCoward role, he historically kept trying to rally and command his men cooly until he was shot. * {{Jerkass}} * JerkassHasAPoint: While the way he goes about it is horrible, he is absolutely right about the situation and French intentions and it is the war he spawned that ultimately paved the way for Haytham's later schemes regarding the American Revolution. * TheUnfettered: Destroys anything he considers an obstacle. * WouldHurtAChild: Once murdered a whole family, children included, just to hasten his own escape. ** Oddly enough, whether it actually hastened his escape is debatable since Haytham doesn't clarify on how it happened, and it was because one of the victimized family members had the gall to [[DisproportionateRetribution insult him for abandoning him.]] !!Silas Thatcher -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? Cold-hearted and cruel, Silas is a British officer and slaver with nearly a hundred soldiers at his command, including many Redcoats. ---- * BoomHeadshot: His fate when TheDogBitesBack. * EvilBrit * {{Jerkass}} * StarterVillain * VillainousBreakdown: When he discovers that his base is under attack. He ''barely'' regains his composure enough to issue orders to his men. !!John André -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? Only appearing in PS3/PC DLC, he was the British officer working with Benedict Arnold in the effort to take West Point. ---- * AntiVillain: Notably the ''only'' British officer who appears in-game and isn't a {{Jerkass}} or member of the Templars. * GracefulLoser * MajorlyAwesome * TheSpymaster [[/folder]] [[folder:Homestead Residents]] !!Godfrey and Terry A pair of lumberjacks, plus their wives Catherine and Diane, who join the homestead after Connor saves Terry's life from a very moist logging accident. ---- * HairTriggerTemper: Terry has a rather short fuse, but gradually gets it under control. * [[IOweYouMyLife He Owes You His Life]]: Godfrey "translates" this for the recently rescued and still spluttering Terry. --> What this knob-end is trying to say is he's forever in your debt, sir. * PluckyComicRelief * SeriousBusiness: Their first conversation is arguing over whether the Iroquois are a "confederation" or a "tribe." * ThoseTwoGuys * VitriolicBestBuds: The two are constantly bickering and in competition with each other. !!Myriam A wandering hunter, she was shot in the arm by poachers in homestead territory, joining the settlement after Connor deals with the situation. ---- * ActionGirl: Besides being a huntress, she's participates in fights to protect her fellow homesteaders. * BadassInDistress: When Connor meets her, she's been shot in the arm and he carries her back to the Homestead so Achilles can help her. * FriendlySniper: Amicable and friendly sort that can shoot down a distant cougar mid-pounce. * [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: Ultimately to Norris.]] * IOweYouMyLife: Sort of. A knife given to her as a gift by Norris (who has a serious crush on her) winds up saving her life during a close encounter with a poacher, at which point she starts to reciprocate his feelings for her. * LeParkour: Almost matches Connor's skill in freerunning. ** In fact she may actually be better at it then he is! One of the homestead missions involves chasing her through the forest, at the end of the chase Connor is out of breath and doubled over while Myriam looks nearly unaffected. Bonus points for her being in a full length [[spoiler:wedding]] dress during this sequence. * NiceHat * TheOldestProfession: Defied; she chose "the open air" over a brothel or convent. * [[spoiler:RunawayBride: Until Connor talked her out of it.]] * WalkingTheEarth: Lived "where the land makes it easiest" before joining the homestead. !!Lance O'Donnell A Boston carpenter evicted from his home by Loyalists, he joins the homestead after Connor rescues him from some nasty bandits. ---- * BerserkButton: Selling the "lifeblood" of one's trade, and particularly ''his'' stuff. * {{Jerkass}}: Not him personally, but his thieving apprentice Patrick certainly is. * MundaneObjectAmazement: The designs that excited him so? They're for [[spoiler:a chair that ''folds''!]] * NonActionGuy * PoorCommunicationKills: Narrowly averted, thanks to Connor. The bandits who robbed him, unsatisfied with their meager earnings, set fire to Lance's wagon and dangled him over a cliff by a rope around his legs. After being rescued, Lance laments that the tools in his wagon ''were'' valuable to the right man. * ShopKeeper: Works as a carpenter. !!Norris A miner from Montreal, Connor saved his life and allowed him to set up shop at the homestead's local mine. ---- * CanadaEh: Hails from Montreal. * DoggedNiceGuy: For [[spoiler: Myriam.]] * [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: Ultimately to Myriam.]] * KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: His real name is Maurice. He got the nickname while in Boston, apparently stemming from a mispronunciation of his real name, and he let it stick through a combination of being tired of correcting people and because some lady said she liked the name. He doesn't bother clearing this up with the homesteaders since everyone already knows him as Norris. !!David Walston Commonly referred to as "Big Dave," he is a blacksmith who joins Connor to hide away from the British, having deserted from their army. ---- * TheBlacksmith * DefectorFromDecadence: Deserted from the British army. !!Ellen A seamstress from New York with an abusive husband, she joined the homestead at Connor's offer for a life away from said spouse. ---- * DomesticAbuse: Her husband is an alcoholic {{Jerkass}} who, despite Ellen's assurance that she could handle him, lead to their daughter seeking Connor's help in driving him off. * OhCrap: The husband's reaction to Connor after their initial encounter. * OutdoorsyGal: Not Ellen herself, but her daughter Maria is constantly described running of on rambunctious deeds around the homestead, sometimes comparing her climbing to Connor. * ShopKeeper: A seamstress by trade. !!Father Timothy An English minister who came to the colonies to "provide God to those who seek His salvation, not spoon feed His word to those who already have their own." ---- * GoodShepherd * NiceHat !!Oliver and Corrine An innkeeper and his wife, who lost their previous inn when the British commandeered it. They build a new one in the Homestead. ---- * FatSlob: Averted. Both of them are fat but they are very kind and welcoming. * HappilyMarried !!Warren and Prudence A farmer couple of African descent, they join the homestead after losing everything to some cruel soldiers. ---- * BabiesEverAfter: They've been trying for one for a long time, ultimately getting their wish at the end of their questline. It's a boy they name "Hunter." * HappilyMarried: The two clearly care for each other and eagerly want to have a baby, which they ultimately get. * KickTheDog: The victims of such when Connor pulled a BigDamnHero; soldiers had salted their land, killed their animals, and were just starting to turn their attention to the couple. * NonActionGuy: Well, Warren ''tried'', but it wasn't going well before Connor arrived. Granted, a farmer with no formal training against multiple soldiers wasn't exactly an ideal match. !!Lyle White A doctor by trade, he's fallen on hard times thanks to the British labelling him as the "White Death." ---- * DeadlyDoctor: The British used MaliciousSlander to make the people believe he is one. * DrowningMySorrows: Connor finds him like this when seeking him out. He snaps out of it upon hearing of Prudence's pregnancy. * MaliciousSlander: His reputation as the "White Death" stems from the fact that he treated Patriot casualties against British orders.

Her death ultimately leads Connor on the path to become an Assassin. ---- * ActionMom: Although all her on-screen action takes place before having Connor. She definitely gets to show it off in the first mission of the Tyranny of King Washington DLC. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * TheDanza: Has the same first name as her voice actress, as well as the same nickname ('Ziio'). * DeadpanSnarker: She's pretty snarky with Haytham, at least early on. * DeathByOriginStory: Dies during Connor's childhood when their village is attacked. * DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Haytham. * FaceDeathWithDignity: Spends her final moments calmly comforting her distraught son. * IceQueen: Even to her own son, to some extent. In an alternate universe where Connor finds her still alive in his adulthood and gives her a sudden hug, she is just hilariously nonplussed and gently pushes him off. * MadeASlave: Was part of a group of slaves being delivered to Silas Thatcher. It doesn't last long. * MissingMom: To Connor. * StarCrossedLovers: Somewhat. She states that she still has affection for Haytham, but also sees him as ruthless in his endeavors. * StiffUpperLip: She does not bow down to pressure. * TechnicalPacifist: Doesn't kill a young George Washington even while holding him at knife point while he's struggling and hitting her in the face to get free, letting Haythem take the responsibility of getting his hands bloody and slaying her enemies. * TheStoic: Seems like it's InTheBlood. * TheUnpronounceable: She goes by "Ziio" for those who struggle with her name. !!Kanen'tó:kon -->'''Voiced By:''' Akwiratékha Martin Connor's distant cousin and best friend, he eventually becomes the leader of their tribe, [[spoiler: however his siding with the British and a ''major'' misunderstanding leads to Connor having to kill his best friend]]. ---- * BadassNative: Though it takes a while for him to grow into the trope. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * BerserkButton: If he thinks you've betrayed him, nothing will change his mind. * TheDeterminator: Grows into this trope as an adult. ''Definitely'' embodies this in the DLC. * FatBestFriend: Somewhat on the pudgy side in his younger days. * [[spoiler:HazyFeelTurn: Sides with the British and decides to retaliate against Colonial attacks against his people.]] * TheKlutz: He's not the most agile or graceful kid, but he grows out of it as an adult. * LaResistance: Fights alongside [[spoiler: Sam Adams in the alternate universe, probably as his second-in-command.]] * YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Connor tells him this when they go on a hunting mission as teenagers after he voices his doubt in his climbing and hunting abilities. The advice appears to work; he catches enough rabbits to make up for Connor's lack of prey. * YoungerThanHeLooks: It's confirmed he's roughly the same age as Connor but looks quite a bit older than him when they are adults. [[/folder]] [[folder:Multiplayer Characters]] !!Tropes Pertaining to all the characters ---- * BladeBelowTheShoulder: All of them have access to a hidden blade, knife, or short hook to execute their stealthier kills. * GoodScarsEvilScars: Male characters can have these added to them. * IShallTauntYou: They all have unique taunts that can be used at any time during a match, and are necessary to earn certain achievements. * LeParkour: Easily just as good at this as Connor himself. * LightIsGood[=/=]DarkIsEvil: Notably, the description for the characters' alternate white outfit says they are "revealing the honorable valor" of the character while their alternate black outfit instead reveals "the dark side" of the character. ** ManInWhite[=/=]WomanInWhite: The ''Light Costumes''. ** RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Many of the ''Dark Costumes'' also have a bit of red in them. * TribalFacePaint: : All of the animi avatars have a variety of "war paints" available for customization purposes. These tend to look a bit out of place on the more well-groomed characters though. !!The Bear (Kuruk) [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bear_-_Resized_965.png]] A Pawnee warrior from a faraway land, Kuruk left his homeland after his elder brother was made chieftain of the tribe. Now exiled, he creates weapons of his own that he wields with remarkable effectiveness. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * AnimalMotifs: ** Fittingly, his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him [[NemeanSkinning wearing the fur of a skinned bear.]] ** Another of his costumes, the ''Warrior Costume'', instead adds a cute, little bear paw tattoo on his chest. * AnimalThemeNaming * BadassNative ** BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BodyPaint: With many variations. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his secondary weapons. * TheBrute * DangerousDeserter: Though he deserted from his own tribe, rather than the military. * DropTheHammer: A custom-made war club is his standard weapon. * TheExile: Voluntarily so. * FashionableAsymmetry: His standard outfits have shades of this. ** The winter version of his outfits add a pelt over his left shoulder, injecting some symmetry. * HairTriggerTemper: He has a short fuse, apparently. * [[{{Mooks}} Mook]]: Although it's unknown whether Kuruk had allied himself with either the Templars or the Assassins, Erudito claims he was nothing but a grunt. * OnlyOneName * [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver Red And Black And Mean All Over]]: His outfits are predominantly black and red, though alternate color schemes are also available. * SavagePiercings: He has a nose ring. !!The Carpenter (John O'Brien) [[quoteright:271:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Carpenter_-_Resized_7342.png]] An Irishman of solitary nature, John O'Brien sought to start a new life in America, because he found his liberties to be continually challenged in his homeland. He is at heart a kind man, but years of persecution at the hands of the Templar Order have made him prone to lashing out when provoked. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * {{Badass}} ** BadassMustache ** BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil: The latter is subverted, since his rage tended to be directed at [[AssholeVictim Templars.]] * BayonetYa: His muskets have them. * TheBrute: His style in combat appears to primarily hinge on brute force. * TheButcher: His ''Champion's Pack'' costume is called this. * ColdSniper: Two of his alternate weapons are muskets. * DropTheHammer: The weapon he is standardly equipped with. * {{Expy}}: After the Blacksmith and the Bombardier, appearing in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively, we now have the Carpenter, John O'Brien, as our new go-to-guy for brutal, hammer-related killing sprees. ** WholeCostumeReference: His ''Champion's Pack'' is very evocative of the Executioner, having him don a blood-stained apron. It's also called TheButcher outfit. * HairTriggerTemper: His temper tends to act up when faced with the Templars. * NiceHat: You can give him a particularly nice fedora. * StoutStrength * TooManyBelts !!The Commander (Matthew Davenport) [[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Commander_-_Resized_6252.png]] A British military officer that served during the American Revolutionary war and a member of the Templar Order. Displaying profiency with a sword, as well as a cunning mind, Matthew Davenport swiftly rose to the ranks of commander. Amongst his troops is his daughter, Eleanor Mallow, who carried out Templar-related missions for him. ---- * AFatherToHisMen: Described as being one. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassMustache: Present on the same two hairstyles, but absent on the last one. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his alternate weapons are this. * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are maces. * {{Expy}}: Of the Captain, Donato Mancini, from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], with both characters being high-ranked military officers who use a RoyalRapier in combat. Likewise shares similarities with the Marquis from the same game, who also commanded troops. * MookLieutenant * NiceHat * RoyalRapier: Wields one as his standard weapon. * SinisterScimitar: One of his alternate swords resembles one. * TheStrategist: Aside from being a competent fighter in direct combat, he's also a cunning strategist. !!The Coyote Man [[quoteright:277:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Coyote_Man_-_Resized_7774.png]] A social recluse, the Coyote Man would fight tooth and nail for Templar interests, primarily by hunting the eastern coast of America for Assassins. One of his major accomplishments was killing an Assassin Mentor with his bare hands, or so the rumours go. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * AnimalThemeNaming * BadassNative * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BodyPaint: Including a crazy amount of face-paint, as can be seen in his concept art. * CoolMask: You can equip him with two rather sinister-looking masks, as part of his hairstyles. The first seems of tribal origin while the other appears to be part of the skull of an animal. * HooksAndCrooks: Two of his alternate weapons. * KnifeNut: His default weapon, a shank made from sharpened bone. * LeanAndMean: His body is undeniably muscular, yet still quite thin. * NoNameGiven: The only multiplayer character that lacks an actual name. * PrimalStance: He seems fully capable of standing upright, but usually slinks into this position. His concept art features him in this kind of stance as well. * SlasherSmile: In his concept art. * WalkingShirtlessScene: Except for his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. !!The French Agile One of the avatars usable in the multiplayer for ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIIILiberation''. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Seen using a tomahawk in his promotional image. * BadassCape: Not seen wearing [[WalkingShirtlessScene much else on his torso]]. * DominoMask: His TribalFacePaint gives this effect. * NoNameGiven: His name has not been revealed. * TribalFacePaint: A red mask-like paint across his eyes. !!The Governor (Bernardo de Galvez) ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassMustache * FriendlySniper: Two of his alternate weapons are silver muskets. ** BayonetYa * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * LastStand: Implied by his third type of customization, titled "Last Stand". * RoyalRapier * WholeCostumeReference: His outfit is somewhat similar to the Officer Teodor Viscardi's default outfit from VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood. !!The Hessian (Gerhard Vonstatten) [[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hessian_-_Resized_5039.png]] A Hessian soldier that was in the employ of the British Army and a member of the Templar Order, Gerhard Vonstatten was an individual that relished in the violent chaos of war. He would follow orders without hesitation, never considering defeat as an option. ---- * AxCrazy[=/=]BloodKnight: Stated as "standing out" [[WarIsGlorious in his appetite for war]] and also being "an unstoppable killing machine" that carried out his orders without question. Aside from his bloodlust, there seems to be little else to the character. This is supported by his biography, which describes him as having "virtually no personality to speak of". * BayonetYa: His infantry rifle has one. * BeardOfEvil: Not by default, but he can be given one. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his alternate weapons. * ColdSniper: Wields an infantry rifle as his standard weapon. * GermanicEfficiency * NiceHat: It's even decorated with a feather. * PistolWhipping: His default rifle kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. * RapidFireFisticuffs: One of his custom kill animations have him throwing his rifle at his target, who will awkwardly catch it, before he gets some quick punches in. As his target falls, he snatches back his rifle and fires a bullet straight through their brain, finishing the job. * RoyalRapier: One of his alternate weapons. * SociopathicSoldier: Seems to be a Type II. * WarIsGlorious !!The Highlander (Duncan [=McGill=]) Duncan [=McGill=] was a Scottish highlander who ended up in the colonies after being exiled from Scotland with little more than his sword and the clothes on his back. While [=McGill=] did not care much for the conflict of the American Revolutionary War, and also didn't have much of a favorable opinion of the British, he took up his weapon to scupper the Templars' ambitions in the New World, due to his great loyalty to the Assassins. As a result of this, [=McGill=] became the subject of folk tales, under the nickname of "Red Rage Duncan." ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassMustache * FriendlySniper: Two of his alternate weapons are muskets. ** BayonetYa * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * ManInAKilt: Being Scottish in this time period. * NiceHat: His Black Watch champion pack includes a feather bonnet. * NotInThisForYourRevolution: Duncan only fought in the Revolutionary War in order to fight against Templar interests for the Assassins. * RedBaron: "Red Rage Duncan" * RoyalRapier: Shown wielding a sword that looks a lot like one but also differs in appearance slightly from the ones used by other characters. * TribalFacePaint: Some of his face paint is similar to the woad in ''{{Braveheart}}''. * ViolentGlaswegian: [[ManInAKilt The Kilt]], his title, and his epithet strongly suggest this. * YouCantGoHomeAgain: Was exiled from Scotland. !!The Huntsman (William de Saint-Prix) [[quoteright:265:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Huntsman_-_Resized_9836.png]] An Assassin born into a wealthy family of French descent, William de Saint-Prix was educated on the most diverse of subjects. Because of his nobility, he was rejected by revolutionaries, though he garnered the respect of his Assassin peers through his courage and intelligence. ---- * {{Badass}}: His promotional render definitely exudes this. ** BadassBeard: A goatee vaguely similar to Ezio's. ** BadassLongcoat ** CulturedBadass: As a noble, he received a good education on a very large variety of subjects, particularly excelling at science and literature. This knowledge allowed him to craft weapons and develop his own fighting style. * [[CoatHatMask CoatHatScarf]]: His ''Champion's Pack'' costume gives him a mouth-covering scarf similar to that of the Nightstalker. * {{Expy}}: Aside from his assassin-like predecessors, the Prowler and the Sentinel, he's also a bit evocative of Ezio Auditore, being a member of a nobility and a man of privilege who became an assassin. He even resembles Ezio a bit physically, having the same type of build and a similar goatee. * HooksAndCrooks: Uses a hook as his WeaponOfChoice. * InTheHood * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * NiceHat: He wears it over his hood. * RoyalRapier: Two of his alternate weapons. * RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Namely, killing Templars. !!The Independent (Alsoomse) [[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Independent_-_Resized_54.png]] Alsoomse was a fiercely temperamental Shawnee woman that was considered more independent than her peers, due to the solitary life she had led. A champion for justice and equality, Alsoomse would fight to the death to defend her beliefs. ---- * ActionGirl[=/=]DarkActionGirl ** BadassNative * AnAxeToGrind: Utilises a tomahawk as her standard weapon. * AnimalMotifs: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit is called "The Wildcat", having her [[NemeanSkinning wear fur from a skinned animal.]] * BladeOnAStick: Two of her secondary weapons. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BraidsOfAction * HairTriggerTemper: As she grew older, her violent temperament became more and more apparent. * HistoricalFiction: Erudito's hacked version of her biography rather frighteningly suggests that Alsoomse and her backstory - a cliché underdog story, according to him - were completely fabricated by the Templars and that she never even existed during the period of the American Revolution. * KnifeNut: Two of her secondary weapons. * MeaningfulName: Her name, Alsoomse, literally translates into "independent", her character title. * MsFanservice ** BareYourMidriff: Though she does cover herself up a bit more when she's in colder environments. ** ShesGotLegs: And does not hesitate to show them off either, if her standard outfit is any indication, in which she's only got a pair of ModestyShorts. She'll sensibly opt for a pair of warmer pants if the weather gets chillier though, averting ExposedToTheElements. * NotAfraidToDie: Stated as being willing to die for the ideals that she believed in. * OnlyOneName * WomanInWhite: Aside from the ''Light Costume'', her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit is also quite white. !!The Lady Maverick (Gillian [=McCarthy=]) [[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lady_Maverick_-_Resized_7816.png]] An orphan, Gillian [=McCarthy=] relied on her many ''talents'' to escape the life of the streets, seducing herself up the social ladder so that she could better protect herself and her younger brother, and became a Templar in the process. Many powerful men fell for her charms, allowing her to learn their best guarded secrets. ---- * TheBaroness: Sexpot variety. * DarkActionGirl: Although she just wants to help herself and her brother survive, she's still rather underhanded about it. According to Erudito [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope she even joined the Templars]] and also [[SelfMadeOrphan killed her parents.]] ** BadassCape: Gets one in her ''Warrior Costume''. ** BadassLongcoat: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has her wearing one of these. * CainAndAbel: What her relationship with her brother seems to have turned into. * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Possibly her brother, the Robber. Then again, if Erudito's mentioning her "selling him for a can of beans" isn't a joke, then perhaps not. * EvilRedhead * {{Expy}}: Fullfills the role of voluptuous, Templar-affiliated vixen as the [[TheOldestProfession Courtesans]], [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Fiora]] [[HeelFaceTurn Cavazza]], from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], and [[IdenticalStranger Fabiola]] [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Cavazza]], from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]], have done before her, though not as [[TheOldestProfession explicitly]]. ** WholeCostumeReference: One of her available costumes is called "the Courtesan" costume, which changes the Lady Maverick's outfit to look like Fiora Cavazza's default outfit. It's not a carbon copy, but it is very reminiscent of said outfit, dying it in the same colourscheme and adding some [[ZettaiRyouiki thigh-high socks]]. * FemmeFatale * HairDecorations: One of her hairstyles has her wear a floral headpiece quite reminiscent of that of the Courtesans. * HooksAndCrooks: Has two of them as possible secondary weapons. * JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Her social climbing eventually led her to join the Templars. * KnifeNut: Her standard weapon. * ModestyShorts: Wears them under her MiniDressOfPower, but they're white, so they're barely visible. * MsFanservice: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], considering she needed to flaunt her good looks if she wanted to catch the attention of powerful men. ** MiniDressOfPower: Comes in many flavours. ** OfCorsetsSexy: Present on all of her costumes. ** ShowSomeLeg * NiceHat: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit includes a tricorn hat, decorated with a feather. * OrphansOrdeal: Although according to Erudito, [[SelfMadeOrphan she was actually the one who killed them.]] * RedheadInGreen * RoyalRapier: Two of her alternate weapons. * SiblingTeam ** BrotherSisterTeam: Used to have one with her brother, Fillan [=McCarthy=], the Robber. * TheSociopath: She has some signs of this, namely killing her parents, manipulating her brother, and just generally using people to get what she wants. * ThemeNaming: She and her brother have rhyming names, which Erudito mocks in his hacked files on them. * TheVamp: Implied to be one. * ViolentGlaswegian: Is of Scottish background. !!The Mackandal Bodyguard !!The Mountebank (Victor Wolcott) A British doctor shrouded in mystery and a member of the Templar Order, Victor Wolcott was well-known for his experiments, fascinated by biology as he was. He would also brew various potions and medicine, some of which were rumoured to keep the patient from the brink of death. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * BeardOfEvil * BadassLongcoat * CombatMedic: Said to have elixers that could keep patients from the brink of death. * DarkIsEvil: His Dark Costume, Undertaker Costume, and even his default look all have him dressing in primarily black clothing. * DeadlyDoctor: Continuing the tradition set by Malfatto and Seraffo. * EvilBrit * {{Expy}}: The American Revolution's version of the {{Deadly Doctor}}s from the Renaissance, the Doctor and the Ottoman Doctor, appearing in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively. * FourEyesZeroSoul ** HighClassGlass: His beard and glasses can be changed to a goatee and monocle. ** OpaqueLenses: Much like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood The Engineer's]] goggles, his glasses are sporting these. * KnifeNut: Is shown holding one in his promotional render, and indeed it is his standard weapon. * HooksAndCrooks: Two of his alternate weapons. * NiceHat: Wears a pretty nice-looking top hat. * SnakeOilSalesman: Given what a "mountebank" is... !!The Nightstalker ("Joe") [[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Night_Stalker_-_Resized_4440.png]] A mentally unhinged mercenary that would roam the streets of London at night, instilling fear into the populace. His true name is unknown, with "Joe" being a nickname he was given after one of his victims was heard shouting the name before they were murdered. [[HeroWithBadPublicity Secretly a dedicated member of the Assassins Order.]] ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * AxCrazy: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], since he only pretends to be. ** PsychoForHire: Again, subverted, due to these being rumours he uses to his own advantage. * CoatHatMask: Or at least Coat, Hat, Scarf. His "Renegade Pack" CoolMask plays it more straight. * DarkIsEvil: Or is it...? ** DarkIsNotEvil: Is actually a dedicated assassin. * {{Expy}}: Takes over the SerialKiller torch from Malfatto from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]]. He's also quite reminiscent of the Renegade from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]], especially visually; lean rather than muscular, keeps his face hidden and has some AxCrazy tendencies. In fact, the Night Stalker can even be equipped with one of the Renegade's masks through DownloadableContent. ** However, as he is secretly an assassin, he actually subverts this. * TheFaceless: His face is almost completely covered by the scarf he wears over his mouth and nose. Played even more straight when wearing the Renegade's helmet. * HellBentForLeather * HeroWithBadPublicity * HooksAndCrooks: Utilizes the newly-introduced hook as his standard weapon. * InTheHood: His ''Champion's Pack'' Outfit, called the "Mad Killer", has one in place of his usual fedora. FridgeBrilliance occurs when one remembers that he is secretly an Assassin and this trope is a part of the Assassins' general uniform. * {{Irony}}: He's a member of the Assassins order but he would later be turned into an Animi Avatar for a Templar training program. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. In addition, his "Mad Killer" outfit features a sheathed knife. * LeanAndMean: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] * NiceHat: Several types of fedoras are available. * OnlyInItForTheMoney: The rumors went that coin was his only true motivation, when in fact it was a desire for justice. * OnlyOneName[=/=]NoNameGiven ** OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Because people had no idea what he was actually called, he was given the moniker "Joe", after one of his Templar victims screamed out said name before they were killed. * SerialKiller: What everyone thinks he is. His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit invokes/lampshades this, being called "The Mad Killer" outfit. * TooManyBelts * [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be The Light?]]: He only moves at night, feeding the rumours that he's afraid of the light. ** GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite this, he operates no differently in maps set in broad daylight. !!The Pioneer (Emily Burke) A tomboy at heart, the Irish Emily Burke had difficulty adhering to the typical expectations of her gender at that time. When her father and brothers were lost in the war, Emily abandoned all pretense and relentlessly hunted down anyone she believed to have been involved in the loss of her family. ---- * ActionGirl ** BadassCape: A half-cape similar to the kind worn by Ezio. ** BadassNative: Has the appearance of one in her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit, "The Wild One". * AnAxeToGrind: Two of her alternate weapons. * BayonetYa: Her musket features one. * BlondesAreEvil: Subverted. She's on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, but its against the Templars, [[AssholeVictim who we all know deserve it.]] She was actually considered to be one of the Assassins' most valuable allies, even if she never officially joined them. * BraidsOfAction: One of her hairstyles. * FriendlySniper: The musket is her standard weapon. * {{Irony}}: Despite having been on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the Templars in her time, she would later become an Animi Avatar for a Templar training program. * KnifeNut: Two of her alternate weapons. * NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Her alias of "Calamity Mily." * NiceHat * PistolWhipping: Her default musket kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. One of her custom kill animations has her striking her target in the back of the head, sending them tumbling to the ground, before firing a musket ball straight through their skull. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: After her father and brothers were killed by Templars during the Revolutionary War, she would kill any Templar she considered to be involved with their deaths. * SkirtOverSlacks * {{Tomboy}} ** OneOfTheBoys: Deconstructed, as her bio says that the expectation for her to be a ProperLady (as was to be expected during that time) was something she had a hard time adjusting to as a result of her tomboyishness. She put up with it though, until her father and brothers were killed, at which point she abandoned the pretense. * WomanInBlack: In her Dark Costume obviously, but her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit also has a lot of black in it. * YouKilledMyFather: By the Templars, hence her feud with them. !!The Preacher (Federico Perez) A preacher of Spanish descent and member of the Templar Order, ''Padre'' Federico Perez was unwavering in his faith and saw it as his duty to "cleanse the land of sinners". Which usually involved killing them. Dealing out death as often as forgiveness, he travelled the lands in search of those who needed his 'guidance'. ---- * BadassPreacher: Considering that "The Preacher" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is his title]], it's not hard to see why he fits this. * BladeOnAStick: Some of his alternate weapons. * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * {{Expy}}: Continuing the trend set by previous {{Sinister Minister}}s, Brother Ristoro (the Priest) and Cyril of Rhodes (the Deacon), who appeared in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively, we now have Padre Federico Perez as the man of the cloth that is completely devoid of any morality whatsoever. ** WholeCostumeReference: Has an available outfit that is called "the Deacon" costume. Like the Lady Maverick's unlockable costume, it's not entirely identical, but certainly evocative enough. In this case, he loses the hat and dons the red robes of the Deacon. * InTheHood: In his aforementioned "Deacon" costume. * HolierThanThou * KnightTemplar[=/=]HeWhoFightsMonsters: A rather literal example. See SinisterMinister below. * NiceHat: Various ones to choose from. * PurpleIsPowerful: His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him in purple, rather than the default, greyish-green. * RealMenLoveJesus * RoyalRapier: Two of his alternate weapons. * SimpleStaff: Seems to be his WeaponOfChoice - albeit with a sharp metal point on the end. * SinisterMinister: Stated as having an obsessive need to [[HolierThanThou "cleanse the land of sinners (Assassins)"]] to the point where he "dealt out death as quickly as he did forgiveness", apparently due to his unwavering faith. His attitude towards heretics was not much better, usually hanging them immediately. !!The Redcoat (Eleanor Mallow) A devoted member of the Templar Order, Eleanor Mallow was the daughter of Commander Matthew Davenport, secretly carrying out missions against the Assassins for him. Young, strong and malleable, she was considered the fascist type that the Templars like. ---- * DarkActionGirl ** BadassCape: Gets one in her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. ** BadassLongcoat: Also a part of her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. * TheBaroness: Sexpot variety, though not as much as the Lady Maverick. * BayonetYa: Her musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * ColdSniper: Two of her secondary weapons. * DaddysGirl: Since there's no mention whatsoever of her mother, one can assume that she didn't play as large a role in Eleanor's life as her Templar father, who regimented her life in a military fashion and carefully made her into one of the Templars' more capable members. ** DaddysLittleVillain * DownloadableContent * KnifeNut: Two of her alternate weapons. * MilitaryBrat: Explicitly called a brat in her in-game biography. * NiceHat: Buckets of hats to choose from, most of them tricorn ones. * RoyalRapier: Her standard weapon. * SweetPollyOliver: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]] One would expect her to do a more adequate job of concealing her gender, when hiding amongst her father's troops, but the trope never comes into play; she wears her hair long and the uniform itself does little to hide her curves. FridgeBrilliance, since Erudito's hacked version reveals that she wasn't hiding her identity from her father at all, rather she would carry out specific, Templar-related missions for him. * TomboyishPonytail: One of her alternate hairstyles. * WholeCostumeReference: Her Officer alternate outfit has her resembling (perhaps fittingly) the Officer Teodor Viscardi from VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood. !!The Robber (Fillan [=McCarthy=]) As an orphan, Fillan was forced to learn the ways of the streets to survive, becoming a skilled thief while his elder sister, Gillian [=McCarthy=], climbed the social ladder through seduction and manipulation, so that she could better protect him. Not wanting to be a burden, he broke ties with her and now lives each day as it comes. In actuality, it was because his sister joined the Templars, Fillan joining the Assassins soon after. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * TheArtfulDodger: And referenced with the title of his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit: "The Snatcher". * BadassLongcoat: Dons one of these in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. * BaldOfAwesome: One of his hairstyles. * CainAndAbel: What he and his sister's relationship may have turned into, after she joined the Templars. * [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Even The Morally Ambiguous Have Loved Ones]]: Seems to have genuinely loved his sister, or at least until she [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope abandoned him for wealth and power.]] * {{Expy}}: Most notably of the Footpad from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], who he shares a lot of characteristics with, especially in design. His relationship with his sister, the Lady Maverick, is also uncannily similar to that of the Thief, also from Brotherhood, and her dead brother. ** WholeCostumeReference: In addition, one of his alternate costumes gives his outfit a color scheme identical to the Footpad's. * HooksAndCrooks: A crude grappling hook is his WeaponOfChoice. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * MessyHair: His default hairstyle, most likely to reflect his poor style of life. * OrphansOrdeal * SiblingTeam ** BrotherSisterTeam: Used to be part of one with his sister, Gillian, until she joined the Templars. * ThemeNaming: He and his sister have rhyming names, which Erudito mocks in his hacked files on them. * UnwittingPawn: Erudito theorizes that it was more likely he became this to the assassins as opposed to being a full-fledged member. !!The Silent Shadow (Atasa:ta[=/=]Chogan) An individual of Mohawk descent, Atasa:ta was raised away from his tribe by his father, learning many skills necessary to survive in the wild. When his father was killed by Templars, Atasa:ta started roaming the cities as well, jumping at every opportunity to exact vengeance upon them. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Uses a tomahawk in battle. * AnimalMotifs: Several eagle references throughout his character. * BadassNative ** BadassCape: Has a large variety of them. ** BaldOfAwesome: Although he does have something resembling a ponytail as his default hairstyle. Or it's a really elaborate bunch of feathers. * BayonetYa: His musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his secondary weapons. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * FriendlySniper: Two of his secondary weapons. * {{Expy}} / ShadowArchetype: He is quite similar to Connor, both being individuals of Mohawk background whose loss of a parent at the hands of the Templars and their associates prompts them to wage war against them. They even both use a tomahawk as their main weapon and have two names each, their Mohawk name, and a more easily pronounceable name. ** WholeCostumeReference: One of his unlockable outfits has him donning a hood and a cape that's similar to the Sentinel. * IHaveManyNames: He went through several name changes during development, which eventually ended with the three he uses now, Atasa:ta being his Mohawk name and Chogan and Krynn most likely being ones he adopted for convenience, like Connor. Before this, he was known as Atasa:ta The Kryn. His multiplayer title also went through several changes, at first being the ''Black Bird'', which then became the ''Shadow'' and then turned into the ''Silent Shadow''. * InTheHood: In his Warrior costume. * {{Irony}}: Despite being the son of an Assassin with a hatred for the Templars, his genetic memories end up being used in an Abstergo project. * NiceHat: His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit gives him a tri-corn one. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Stated as "always looking for a chance at revenge" after [[YouKilledMyFather his father was killed by a British Officer]]. * YouKilledMyFather: A British Officer, hence his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. ** According to an Erudito hack, it was actually by a Templar raiding party. !!The Sharpshooter (Caleb Garret) Described as "a master of all things guns", Caleb Garret joined the American Revolutionary War and the Assassins after he witnessed his friends being buried alive by Templars. Thanks to his expertise with weaponry, he could protect his team with deadly efficiency. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard: Can be given one. ** BadassCape: Gets a nice, fur-lined one in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit that is similar to that of the Count from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]]. ** BadassLongcoat: Always dressed in one of these, except for the above outfit, "the Minuteman", where he exchanges it for a cape. * BayonetYa: His hunting rifle is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * FriendlySniper * DownloadableContent * {{Expy}}: Visually, he looks a lot like a certain [[RedDeadRedemption Mr. Marston]]. Or [[DollarsTrilogy The Man With No Name]], if you will. His name and backstory are close to another wide-brimmed-hat-wearing sharpshooter named [[{{Videogame/Blood}} Caleb]]... * KnifeNut: Two of his secondary weapons. * LaResistance: Fights in the Revolutionary army. Referenced in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit, which is the outfit of a minuteman. * NiceHat: Like many of the other characters, he has a wide variety of hats. * PistolWhipping: His default rifle kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Joined the Assassins and the American Revolutionaries against the Templars after they killed his friends. !!The Strong Man (Nukilik) An Inuit Chieftain, Nukilik is dedicated to the safety of his people, willing to travel countless miles to aid them. Despite his large stature, he demonstrates both strength and agility, making him an especially large threat at close range. ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassNative: An Inuit Chieftain. * BayonetYa: His muskets have them, including one that is a dagger tied to the rifle rather then an actual bayonet. * BladeOnAStick: He wields a harpoon as his specialty weapon. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * FriendlySniper: Two of his secondary weapons. * GondorCallsForAid: When he learned of the plight faced by his kin who lived in areas affected by the Revolutionary War, he went out of his way to journey all the way over there and help them out, aiding the Revolutionaries in the process. * HistoricalFiction: Erudito's hacked version of his biography rather frighteningly suggests that Nukilik and his backstory - a cliché underdog story, according to him - were completely fabricated by the Templars and that he never even existed during the period of the American Revolution. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * LightningBruiser: Described as one. * NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His title is the only one that singles out and defines one trait:[[{{Badass}} his strength]]. * NemeanSkinning: Like the Bear, his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him donning the skin of a polar bear. * NiceHat: Many. * OddNameOut: Most of the titles for the multiplayer persona encompass their overall character. Nukilik, on the other hand, is a leader, journeyman, and warrior, but his title is the very straightforward and specific "Strong Man". * OnlyOneName [[/folder]]

'''Be aware that this page these pages WILL contain some unhidden spoilers!''' [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:Assassins]] !!Ratonhnhaké:ton (Connor) [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ConnorKenwayAC_5763.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Noah Watts A Mohawk Native * [[Characters/AssassinsCreedIIITheAssassins The Assassins]] * [[Characters/AssassinsCreedIIITheTemplars The Templars]] * [[Characters/AssassinsCreedIIIAmericanRevolutionaries American with an English father, Connor had a turbulent childhood that saw his tribe destroyed by colonial forces. His hatred of tyranny led to his recruitment by the Assassin Order in 1770 and involvement in the American Revolutionary War. ---- Revolutionaries]] * {{Adorkable}}: Occasionally has shades of this when trying to integrate into colonial culture. [[Characters/AssassinsCreedIIIOtherCharacters Other Characters]] * AmbiguouslyBrown: InUniverse, it's used so Connor can pass as a Spaniard. * AncestralWeapon: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Connor uses Haytham's Hidden Blade, which Haytham gave to Ziio to pass down to him. * AntiquatedLinguistics: Does not use contractions. * AnAxeToGrind: ** Connor can wield tomahawks, with the most iconic being the one with a head in the shape of the Assassin crest. ** He can also use larger, two-handed axes like the ones used by [[EliteMook Grenadiers]]. * ArcherArchetype: Can use a bow. * BackToBackBadasses: With Aveline in this [[http://cdn.wegotthiscovered.com/wp-content/uploads/assassins-creed-3-liberation-5.jpg pic.]] * {{Badass}}: As per the style of Franchise/AssassinsCreed protagonists. ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassNative ** EmpoweredBadassNormal: After drinking the Tea of the Red Willow in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}, Connor gains supernatural powers. See SuperPowerLottery for the details. * TheBeastmaster: He is capable of using ghostly wolves to attack people in ''The Tyranny Of King Washington'' {{DLC}}. * BeenThereShapedHistory * BerserkButton: While he's soft spoken and caring at the best of times, he also has a short temper caused by his character flaw of naivety. Doubting his opinions seems to set him off the most often. * BewareTheNiceOnes: Connor is fair, sympathetic, generous and kind to his friends and to ordinary people, and applies what he believes about the value of life and human dignity consistently--meaning, yes, to his enemies as well. At first, he tends to seek (relatively) peaceful resolutions with his enemies--most notably in how he tries to work together with [[spoiler:Haytham and the Templars]], in his decision to leave [[spoiler:William Johnson alive after destroying his funds, believing that this would be enough to stop him from buying his people's land]], and also his initial plan to [[spoiler:imprison Thomas Hickey to stop his assassination schemes, as Hickey can't hurt Washington if he's behind bars]]. Every single time, they spit on his mercy. And every single time, he [[GoodIsNotSoft doesn't offer a second chance]]. * BlackAndWhiteMorality: Connor is described as having a very firm idea of right and wrong. Early on, he shows a somewhat naive belief that people should simply be straightforward and honest about their actions and points out the hypocrisy of colonists protesting about their freedoms while also practicing slavery. ** WhiteAndGreyMorality: Surprisingly for an Assassin, and especially such a prominent one, Connor internalizes the Templar's ideals in order to understand his true duty as an Assassin. (It helps that the Templars in this game as represented by Haytham are far less rabid and more logical and well-intentioned, even if they are all major {{Jerkass}}es). Connor never buys into the Templar propaganda, since his strong moral compass centers on his belief in freedom (which the Templars explicitly hate), but he never disregards them either. Typically he acknowledges the wisdom in the Templars' dying words, but refuses to apologize for the deed on the grounds of the Templar in question being an irredeemable asshat. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: The hidden blade is a Type 1. Like Ezio, he can wield [[DualWielding two at once]]. It's also foldable so that he can hold it like a knife. * BowAndSwordInAccord: And axe and pistol too... [[WalkingArmory or whatever else he's carrying]]. Bow is a given, regardless. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: In his early days. After obtaining the Assassin robes, he loses the buckskins completely while the braids and beads get downplayed. * BreakTheCutie: While his life wasn't exactly sunshine and rainbows prior, the final quarter of the game is one sledgehammer blow after another to the poor guy. * BreakingSpeech: Connor pulls out one against Achilles targeting his failures and reticence to help the colonists. * BrokenPedestal: He considered George Washington a decent enough man and a worthy leader in the fight for freedom of the colonists. [[spoiler: Then he learned that not only was he only fighting for the freedom of the colonists alone, but it was him who ordered the burning of Connor's village, resulting in the death of his mother. Needless to say, their relationship was never the same again, even post-''Tyranny of King Washington''.]] * ButNotTooForeign: A rare western example. He's half-British, half-Mohawk. * TheCaptain: Of TheDreaded CoolBoat ''Aquila'', a.k.a. "The Ghost of the North Seas." * CatchPhrase: "Where is Charles Lee?" * CelibateHero: So far, Connor is the only main protagonist without any sort of love interest, and in one homestead mission where he tries to help Norris court Myriam with a gift, he awkwardly asks Prudence advice on what "you women" like. A far cry from the womanizing Ezio. ** [[ForegoneConclusion A temporary case, however.]] While it's true we haven't yet seen Connor with any woman in ''III'', it's only a matter of time; after all, he ''is'' Desmond's ''ancestor''. [[CaptainObvious So yeah.]] * CombatPragmatist: Much like Altair and Ezio before him, Connor fights very dirty, with his arsenal including the use of [[BulletproofHumanShield human shields to block musket fire.]] * CoolHat: When he's piloting the ''[[CoolBoat Aquila]]'' or otherwise wearing the costume for it, Connor sports a tricorn. * TheCorruptible: ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}} alludes to him being this--he repeatedly takes "Sky Journeys" to gain new powers, but each time, visions of his mother warn him that he is becoming deluded and turned aside from his original path. How or why is left ambiguous, as Connor's behavior is only subtly changed. [[spoiler: The ending implies that he has been gaining a lust for power that leads to him planning to claim the Apple for himself, right before the vision the entire DLC takes place in abruptly ends. While the nature of his corruption remains ambiguous, following the vision, once Washington gives him the Apple, Connor is able to force himself to weigh it down and drop it in the ocean.]] * CustomUniform: Connor's Assassin outfit is described as being an Assassin outfit that he personally modified into its current incarnation. * [[spoiler: DeadGuyJunior: Achilles gave him the name Connor, which was the name of his own (long since deceased) son]]. * [[spoiler: DeflectorShields: The Shard of Eden, Captain Kidd's ring, that has a chance of deflecting bullets.]] * {{Determinator}}: Essentially becomes Connor's defining trait by the end of the game. Even in the face of inevitability, he will ''not'' stop fighting. -->'''[[spoiler: Charles Lee]]''': Even those men you sought to save have turned their backs on you, yet you fight, you resist... Why? -->'''Connor''': Because no one else will! * DoomedHometown: Connor's village is destroyed during his early years, helping to drive him to the Assassins in a search for justice. ** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]: While the burning of his village has a huge impact on him...the survivors rebuild it and you can visit it and talk to people there whenever you like when Connor is an adult. [[spoiler: That is until the post-game, where the townspeople have been evicted by the colonists and the whole place is deserted.]] * DualWielding: Connor never wields a single weapon, and always has a dagger or hidden blade ready in his off-hand. ** GunsAkimbo: Connor can wield dual pistols. However, he uses them in a relatively realistic fashion, using one at a time and switching hands when one pistol goes dry. * DudeWheresMyRespect: A problem for him. On the one hand it's justified on the parts of some of the disrespectful American commanders: The Assassins have essentially no presence in the colonies so when Connor initially approaches them during battles, they don't see a highly trained and very strong man but rather just another early-twenties ostensible patriot and probable dumb farm boy. On the other hand Connor himself handles these situations...somewhat less than gracefully, which probably doesn't help matters. * EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Subverted or possibly inverted; English is very clearly his second language, and early in the game he's very hesitant to speak because of it. However, this turns in on itself later in the game, since he doesn't use [[AntiquatedLinguistics colloquialisms or contractions]] when speaking. As a result of this and his preference for strong, clear, and concise language, his delivery comes off as somewhat sophisticated. * AFatherToHisMen[=/=]PapaWolf: Connor would never shy away from helping out those who live with him in his homestead, even going so far as to risk his own life for simple tasks if it makes theirs a happier one. ** Which leads to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when he winds up chasing pigs into a pen, shouting "The things I do for this place!" * ForestRanger: What with his bow carrying, tree-running, tracking and all. Especially with how he defends the early, heavily-forested Homestead. * FriendToAllLivingThings: Connor is very affectionate with domesticated animals and tries to make his hunting kills as clean as possible, sometimes thanking the animal in Mohawk while skinning it. In fact, if you start killing animals for sport, without skinning them, the Animus will desynchronize. * GentleGiant: He's not ''incredibly'' tall, and he's a skinny kid, but as an adult Connor is very heavily and solidly built--look at his thighs, or his shoulders and back--and is fittingly extremely powerful. Personality-wise, he's also possibly the nicest and kindest and sincerely sweetest Assassin we've yet played as. * HalfBreedDiscrimination: Once Connor starts getting infamous amongst the enemy, variants of it becomes a common taunt. * HandicappedBadass: Low key, but he is clearly suffering from chronic pain long after being impaled on a piece of wood while [[spoiler:chasing Lee]]. Doesn't [[GameplayAndStorySegregation impact him outside of cutscenes]] though. * HatesBeingTouched: And whenever someone does (particularly when he's only just met them), he has a dictionary of subtle but hilarious reactions. Likely due to his culture and upbringing, as it is considered rude to touch someone you don't know in Mohawk Culture. ** He loosens up a lot with friends and relations, but even then it's probably best if you [[http://youtu.be/p909sxTYkGo?t=15s don't sneak up on him.]] * HighlyVisibleNinja: He's noticeably more out in the open than Altair or Ezio ever were. On the other hand, he has an actual excuse to wear white robes, as they're good camouflage during winter. ** His longcoat ensemble is also rather standard, other than the coloring and keeping the hood up at all times, and he seems to be wearing street clothes under it. Ezio and Altair's robes, however, were rather distinctive uniforms. * HumbleHero * TheHunter: Of Templars. Emphasized with his longbow, which he literally uses for hunting animals. * ImportantHaircut: Cuts his hair into a mohawk before the last sequence when he [[spoiler: goes after Charles Lee]]. * ImprobableAge: Connor's martial skills are extremely strong for a 17-year old, as even before he acquires Assassin training, he appears to have a full repertoire of fighting abilities with the tomahawk. * ImprobableWeaponUser: Connor can use his hunting snare during a counter to strangle his enemies. * InTheHood: Although he [[TheCoatsAreOff puts it down]] when he [[spoiler: goes after Charles Lee]], and it stays down in the Homestead afterwards. * KnifeNut: As long as his left hand is free, he'll use a Hidden Blade in combination with any weapon you wield. He can also swap out his tomahawk for a variety of daggers. * KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Achilles gave him the name "Connor" due to [[TheUnpronouncable pronunciation difficulties]], and nobody outside of his tribe refers to him by his birth name. ** Though it appears at least a few of his friends know that Connor isn't his birth name; as Norris (who also goes under an assumed name) puts it, "Names change, but the person stays the same. Isn't that right, ''Connor''?" ** Further played with in ''The Tyranny Of King Washington'', where due having to never met Achilles in the AlternateHistory and thus not receiving the name "Connor", everyone instead refers to him by either his birthname or simply, "The Man wearing a Wolf". * LightningBruiser: Connor is faster and more agile than Ezio and Altair. As a result he can flit from enemy to enemy and dispatch them with his tomahawk and hidden blade quicker, and he is more versatile in combat than his predecessors. Though he typically avoided the impressive brute-force shows of strength that Ezio was famous for in favor of quick clean kills. * LikeFatherLikeSon: Like Haytham, Connor has a very low tolerance for taking crap from others. They also have issues with shaking hands when meeting new people. * MamasBoy: In the semi-alternate universe of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Connor is still living alone with his mother as an adult. Since Connor is transported into that "universe" with his true memories including those of his mother's death, he is more or less stunned into doing whatever his miraculously-still-alive mother asks. * AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted (pointedly). WordOfGod even says that Connor was a virgin for the duration of the game. This is not at all a surprise; the game makes it pretty clear that Connor couldn't find a place in his life for companionship like that, not while he was still so focused on Lee and the Revolution. * MeaningfulName: Connor means ''wolf kin, lover of wolves'', and his birth name Ratohnhaké:ton means "a life that is scratched", i.e. a life of struggle. [[spoiler: The former becomes all the more meaningful in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC.]] * MixedAncestry: Connor is half-English and half-Native American, namely Mohawk. * NiceHat: Wears a tricorn while captaining the ''Aquila''. * NiceGuy: In his day-to-day life, Connor is pretty meek. He is also passionate about making sure his friends are happy and well-cared for, and is very respectful to anyone he considers a friend for, regardless of station or their societal relationship to him. * NotInThisForYourRevolution: Played with. At first, Connor is extremely sympathetic to the Colonies, though he is bothered by their hypocritical desire to be free despite owning slaves and forcing people off their land. Played straight after [[spoiler:he finds out that [[BrokenPedestal Washington]] has been attacking Native villages, including his own, and was the one behind his mother's death. After that, he only helps the Colonies when it suits him.]] * NoPronunciationGuide: Seriously, ''Ratohnhaké:ton''. For clarity's sake, it's pronounced ''"Ra-don-ha-gay-don"''. * OneManArmy: A literal example, mixed with HopeBringer. When he enters a conflict and starts mowing down opponents as they try to reload muskets, the side he's fighting for has a high morale boost. * PoisonedWeapons: The Poison Darts. * ProfessionalKiller * RebelliousRebel: Connor supports the American Revolution because he believes that the colonists are defending their liberty. However, his stake in the matter is mostly that he happens to be good friends with the founding fathers and is fiercely loyal to them in a personal sense. He doesn't particularly care for the war itself and mostly just treats it as scenery. * RenaissanceMan: Canonically, he's a hunter, Assassin, naval captain, explorer, entrepreneur, merchant, and manager of the multiple businesses in his homestead, all of which are in professional capacity and for which individually he could have made a living out of. Connor doesn't fit the mold of the Renaissance men of the time, who focused on scholarship, but the wide variety of Connor's trade skills are similarly impressive (and hold to philosophy of the polymath). * ShipperOnDeck: For [[spoiler: Myriam and Norris.]] * TheStoic: Connor is explicitly described as a very stoic person. ** NotSoStoic: While relatively restrained, he expresses anger very clearly. * SuperPowerLottery: Over the course of the ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}, he gains three powers from his "Sky World Journeys" after drinking Red Willow tea. They can be described as AntiFrustrationFeatures taken UpToEleven. ** HavingABlast: '''Bear Might''', the last power learned, summons the form of a giant bear around Connor as he slams his hands into the ground, causing an explosion around him that will instantly kill most nearby foes and knock down foes in a wider range. It's also used to destroy large structural objects. ** {{Invisibility}}: The '''Wolf Cloak''', the first power learned drains his health constantly to turn him completely invisible and undetectable. He can also summon wolves to take out multiple enemies (though that loses usefulness when Bear Might is introduced). Dogs can see through it. ** NotQuiteFlight: '''Eagle Flight''', the second power learned, shapeshifts him into a an illusory eagle temporarily to let him fly up or between high points. Spamming it will get you what is probably the fastest land traveling speed in the series. * ThighHighBoots: A RareMaleExample. ** And since close inspection of the render reveals that his "boots" are actually held up by suspenders to a belt, he arguably qualifies as an Even Rarer Male Example of StockingFiller. ** It seems he's wearing normal boots--he just also wraps furs around his legs from the ankles on up. Presumably thick pants are at a premium. * ThisMeansWarpaint: Connor puts on warpaint and gives himself a mohawk shortly before [[spoiler:his final confrontation with Charles Lee.]] * TheUnpronounceable: The main reason why Achilles gives him the name Connor. There is a secondary reason in allowing him to pass for a Spaniard or Italian, but it's mainly because of the pronunciation difficulties. -->'''Connor''': My name is Ratohnhaké:ton. -->'''Achilles''': Right...[[CrowningMomentOfFunny well, I am not even going to try to pronounce that]]. * [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: By killing Haytham, his father]]. * WellDoneSonGuy: Played with. Though he's hostile to Haytham for abandoning him and ordering the burning of his village, [[spoiler: though the truth is a bit more complicated]], he's still willing to work with Haytham and holds out hope that they can come to an understanding and form a connection. [[spoiler: Ultimately though he chooses his allegiance with the Assassins over his father's approval.]] * WhenHeSmiles: Played straight during a few Homestead missions. Throws Charles Lee a rather apathetic one when confronting him [[spoiler: at Haytham's funeral.]] * WideEyedIdealist: With bits of NaiveNewcomer in his early years. ** Also due to his belief that [[spoiler: Assassins and Templars could work together.]] Though a bit of a subversion as it actually almost appears to be possible, right up until [[spoiler: he catches Haytham trying to manipulate him.]] * WrestlerInAllOfUs: Some of his moves involve wrestling moves, including drop kicks, [=DDTs=], suplexes, and clotheslines. * YoungerThanHeLooks: The game spans his journey from ages 18-28, during which time he could pass for a man in his mid to late 30s. He looks younger if his hair is cropped or in a mohawk, though. !!Aveline de Grandpré [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Aveline_de_Grandpr_AC_3370.png]] -->'''Voiced By''': Amber Goldfarb ->''"I seek liberty and freedom, not for myself, but for those whom such fundamental rights are denied. I am their shield, their sword, their only hope. The roads I travel are dark, but they bring me closer to the light."'' The daughter of an female African aristocrat and French merchant in New Orleans, she lived a privileged life that others like her could not. Her outspoken nature and vocal opposition to slavery was only allowed due to her father’s protection. She was recruited into the Assassin Order in 1759. ---- * ActionGirl * AnEntrepreneurIsYou * {{Badass}} ** BackToBackBadasses: With Connor. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: The hidden blade is a Type 1. * ButNotTooBlack: Deliberately invoked, and Aveline can use this to her advantage because she can put on a dress to look like a member of the aristocracy, or put on rags to pretend to be a slave. During a party, some gossipers do comment on her complexion but don't openly insult her for it. * DualWielding * HistoricalVillainUpgrade / HistoricalHeroUpgrade: InUniverse. [[spoiler: Abstergo's propaganda make her out to be an indoctrinated Assassin who finaly "atones" by joining the Templars.]] * HotChickInABadassSuit: She gives us the 18th Century equivalent of this, running around in a snappy men's uniform with a tripoint hat. The aversion of ChainmailBikini female action costume design has been praised by fans. * KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Her lady persona, and even her assassin persona is pretty fancy. * LadyOfWar: A noblewoman who's also an Assassin. * LeParkour * MacheteMayhem: She has a sugarcane machete in her arsenal. * MixedAncestry: French father, African mother. * NecessaryDrawback: All three of Aveline's personas have drawbacks. Her Lady persona lets her charm or bribe guards so she can waltz right past checkpoints, but the dress makes any kind of climbing impossible and also slows you down. Her Slave persona does let her climb around, and it has a bunch of unique blending options, but your notoriety also rises higher for doing anything unusual, including climbing. The Slave persona is also weaker in combat, due to not being as heavily armed as her Assassin persona. The drawback to the Assassin persona is that your notoriety is always at a minimum of 1 (possibly because seeing a woman covered in weapons running around is too unusual to NOT investigate). * NiceHat * ParasolOfPain * PimpedOutDress: She can [[http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-23/ac3l-aveline-aristocrat-guise.html wear one as part of her noble persona]], allowing her to move freely around the upper parts of society. * PoisonedWeapons: Like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII Ezio's]] poison dart, Aveline uses a blowpipe to a similar effect. * PrincessInRags: She is a lady of high society, both as a disguise and before the events that turned her towards the Assassins, and her persona as a slave woman is purposefully low class and allows her to blend into the background. * ProfessionalKiller * SlaveLiberation * SpiritedYoungLady * WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was considered as a possible love interest for Connor in the ''Tyranny of King Washington''. * WhipItGood: Used in both combat and to help her LeParkour skills. * WithDueRespect: Her relationship with Agate. !!Achilles Davenport [[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AchillesAC_9370.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Roger Aaron Brown A Master Assassin of British and Caribbean descent, he is the mentor of Connor, residing at his homestead. By the time Connor finds him, he has become a broken shell of a man who oversaw the utter destruction of his Order at the hands of the Templars and has lost the will to fight. ---- * [[AchillesInHisTent Achilles In His Homestead]]: {{Pun}} notwithstanding, [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as he is old and not in the physical condition he used to be. Until Connor came along, he had no organization left to support him either, and there was little he could do alone anymore. * {{Badass}} ** BadassGrandpa ** BadassInANiceSuit: Has the 18th Century equivalent of one. ** BadassMustache: Albeit a more subtle example than most. ** BadassTeacher: To Connor ** HandicappedBadass: His age might have weakened his body, but he can still kick ass if he catches you by surprise. ** RetiredBadass * CoolOldGuy * TheCynic: Appears to have this view in comparison to the idealistic Connor. * GrumpyOldMan: His introductory mission is even called [[LampshadeHanging "A Boorish Man."]] He mellows out after a while, though. * KnightInSourArmor * [[spoiler: LifeWillKillYou: He dies in his sleep in 1781, and Connor buries him next to the graves of his wife and child, with the rest of the Homestead's residents attending his funeral.]] * MeaningfulName: Named Achilles, has difficulty walking. * TheMentor ** CynicalMentor ** [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard: Subverted. He does die, but in his sleep, and does not enter combat.]] * MixedAncestry: Of Caribbean and English descent. * NiceHat * OldMaster * ParentalSubstitute: To an extent, especially if you discover that [[spoiler:he named "Connor" after his long-deceased son]]. * ProfessionalKiller * RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: [[spoiler: In his posthumous letter he states that Connor restored his faith in the Brotherhood and its mission.]] * SinkOrSwimMentor: He leaves the wanted Connor behind in Boston, for him to find a way out of the situation and the city. !!Agate -->'''Voiced By:''' Tristan D. Lalla The Mentor of the Assassin Order in New Orleans, Agate is a former slave who escaped from jail and took refuge in the Louisiana marshes. He conflicts with Aveline over her impulsiveness and acting without consulting him. ---- * AngryBlackMan * BaldBlackLeaderGuy * [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]] * [[spoiler:FinalExamBoss]] * TheMentor * ProfessionalKiller * TookALevelInJerkAss: After Aveline chooses to spare one of her targets, Agate quickly goes from soft-spoken mentor into an irrational, paranoid, impatient, condescending, racist asshole. !!Robert Faulkner [[quoteright:285:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RobertFaulknerAC_2113.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Kevin [=McNally=] The first mate on the Aquila, Faulkner joined the Assassins in 1753. He resides on the Homestead next to the Aquila's dock and helps Connor gather a crew for the vessel to combat the Templars at sea. ---- * ActorAllusion[=/=]{{Expy}}: Kevin [=McNally=] portraying a somewhat portly FatherNeptune who's recruited back into action while drunk, gathers your crew, makes reference to Singapore, and serves as a somewhat superstitious first mate? Why, hello there, [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Mr. Gibbs]]! * BadassBeard * CoolOldGuy * DeadpanSnarker * DrowningMySorrows: After the Aquila was sunk and the Brotherhood in America was almost completely destroyed. He only stops when Connor joins the Assassins and begins rebuilding the Order and his ship. * FatherNeptune * InsistentTerminology: Sets Connor straight every time he mucks up sailor terms, especially calling the Aquila "it" and a "boat." * TheLancer: Serves as first mate on the Aquila. * NumberTwo: On the Aquila. * SeaDogBeard * WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He isn't seen or mentioned again after the first memory of the third episode of the ''Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC. !!Gérald Blanc -->'''Voiced By:''' Olivier Lamarche An accountant who works for Philippe Olivier de Grandpre, he was recruited into the Assassin Order alongside Aveline and serves as a information officer. ---- * ChildhoodFriendRomance * NonActionGuy: In fact, the one time he ''tried'' to not be a NonActionGuy, he decided he had enough excitement to last a lifetime. * TheSmartGuy !!Stephane Chapheau -->'''Voiced By:''' Shawn Baichoo A immigrant from Montréal to Boston. After he is robbed and oppressed by Templar agents, Stephane swears his allegiance to Connor, becoming his first Assassin recruit. ---- * {{Badass}}: Even before joining the Assassins. When Connor first encounters him, he's fighting off a squad of Templar soldiers. His post-battle dialogue implies that this has happened before and that he beat them back. He can even hold his own against elite Scottish during his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. If anything, Connor just helped him realize his true enemy and convince him to make clean kills. * CanadaEh: He grew up in Lower Canada (present-day eastern Quebec), as revealed during his French ranting. * GratuitousFrench: Particularly when angry. * HotBlooded * KnifeNut: Wields a meat cleaver. He cleaves meat with it. * TheLancer: To Connor. * RedOniBlueOni: Red to Connor's Blue. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Except replace "roaring" with "loud French ranting." !!Duncan Little -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A former Irish priest, Duncan joins the Assassins' after Connor helps him stop a Templar controlled gang in north Boston. ---- * BadassPreacher: Well, former priest. * BigDamnHeroes: If you look ''real'' closely in the background during [[spoiler:Connor being "escorted" to the gallows, Duncan can be seen performing a rooftop sentry assassination in preparation for the eventual rescue]]. * DestinedBystander[=/=]EarlyBirdCameo: He was the child who witnessed [[spoiler:Haytham assassinate his uncle Miko in the opera house]]. * ReligiousBruiser[=/=]RealMenLoveJesus * [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Uncle]] !!Clipper Wilkinson -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A surveyor and hunter from Virginia, Clipper joined the Assassins' after Connor helped him stop the forced recruitment into the British army of men in south Boston by Templar agents. ---- * BlackSheep: He hails from a family of Loyalists, but felt compelled to stop the forced conscription by the Templars. He figures that such actions place him on the Patriot side of the conflict, but Connor assures him that he's an Assassin, neither Patriot nor Loyalist. * CantHoldHisLiquor: He doesn't drink anymore, as his poor alcohol tolerance lead to an embarrassing incident in the past. * FriendlySniper: Recruiting him gives Connor the ability to order his Assassins to snipe targets. !!Deborah "Dobby" Carter [[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DeborahCarterAC_249.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Angela Galuppo A courier in New York City, Deborah was an orphan who dressed as a boy to get work on the docks. When she got older, she became known as a problem solver in northern New York, looking out for the poor and underprivileged. She joined the Assassins' after Connor assisted her in stopping the exploitation of New York civilians by a Templar. ---- * ActionGirl * ConvenientlyAnOrphan * {{Courier}} * InTheHood * JustLikeRobinHood: She would rob corrupt merchants and distribute their goods. Shaun of course {{Lampshades}} this in her database entry. * TheSmurfettePrinciple: She is the only female Assassin in Connor's chapter. * ShipTease: The only woman in the game to make a pass at Connor. ** MrsRobinson: ...who is 20 years her junior. Although that is according to the Animus database, which gives some similarly improbable birthdates for some of the other Assassin recruits. * RummageSaleReject: There are so many things...''off'' about her outfit. ** She's wearing a formal jacket/coat, over a barely visible blouse that folds outward so that her chest is bare. ** She wears normal trousers with the coat. ** The shirt tails of two different shirts stick out from the coat untucked. ** She wears a leather belt outside of the coat, which is tied instead of buckled, despite the buckle being clearly visible, and another belt ''under'' the coat. ** And she attached a leather hood and shoulder pads to the cloth formal-wear that is of a completely different style. ** The collar of the jacket is actually detached from the lapels and sticks straight up while the lapels lay flat. * SweetPollyOliver: When she was young, she dressed as a boy to get work on the docks, hence the nickname "Dobby". Most people saw through it, but used her anyway since she was so smart and reliable. She stopped when she hit puberty. * WeNeedADistraction: Recruiting her lets Connor order the Assassins to distract guards. !!Jacob Zenger -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A German mercenary, Zenger left the army after arriving in New York, deciding he wanted to settle down on a farm. After that failed, he became a bodyguard in eastern New York, where he met Connor and joined the Assassins' while helping to stop a Templar British officer who was imposing martial law in the district. ---- * BaldOfAwesome * GuileHero: He's the one who provides Connor's Assassins with the whole "disguise" idea. * HappilyMarried: Enough that he wants his family to join him in the Americas, war or no war. !!Jamie Colley -->'''Voiced By:''' Marcel Jeannin A doctor's assistant in western New York, Jamie joined the Assassins' while working with Connor to control a Templar arranged outbreak of smallpox in the district. ---- * AnAxeToGrind * BadassBeard * CombatMedic * NiceHat !!Louis Mills -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A sailor upon the Providence who attempted to assassinate Haytham while crossing the Atlantic. ---- * BewareTheNiceOnes: Before revealing his intentions, Haytham believed him to be one of the few trustworthy crew members. * {{Foreshadowing}}: The red sash around his waist clues in on his allegiance. * FriendlyEnemy: He and Haythem get along well, to the point that Louis wants him to surrender and promises to treat him with honor as a captive, and gives him a sword when he choses to resist. * HonorBeforeReason: A Templar and an Assassin are on the same boat together. The Templar, not knowing the Assassin's allegiance, considers him trustworthy. The Assassin, rather than simply murder him in his sleep, instead leaves clues for an Assassin vessel to follow their own vessel. When the other ship arrives, the Assassin reveals his nature to the unarmed Templar, who asks for a weapon. The Assassin complies with this request. How many things are wrong with this scenario? [[/folder]] [[folder:Templars]] !!Haytham Kenway [[quoteright:248:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Haytham_Kenway_9116.jpg]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Adrian Hough The father of Connor, Haytham traveled to the American colonies with the key to the Central Vault in the hopes of relieving it of its contents. He is the [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler playable ancestor for Sequences 1, 2, and 3]]. The end of the latter reveals him to be a Templar. ---- * [[AffablyEvil Affably Morally Ambiguous]]: He seems genuinely sorry about the assassination in the opera house. ** Though it's also turned on its head with the implication that he really didn't have to kill that man, in which case the fact that he didn't seem all ''that'' bothered is equally telling. * AmazonChaser: Is this to [[spoiler: Ziio,]] who's quite badass in her own right. * AntiVillain: Type III, like most Templars. * ArchnemesisDad * ApologeticAttacker: Apologizes before killing his target in the opera house. * AuraVision: Like other protagonists in the series, Haytham has Eagle Vision. * AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Grandmaster of the American branch of the Templars. Also a competent fighter proficient in fistfighting, fencing, the use of pistols and muskets, and hidden blades. * AwesomenessByAnalysis: On several occasions (the opera at the very start or the first mission with Hickey, for instance) he takes one look at a hostile area and formulates a route or plan to go right through it. * {{Badass}} ** BackToBackBadasses: With [[spoiler: Connor]] in quite a few memories. ** BadassCape * BecauseISaidSo: His excuse for bossing Connor around. * BerserkButton: Insulting him results in a warning via death threat or a straight up beat down if you are of no use to him. Betraying the Templar Order is also this as [[spoiler:Braddock and Church]] found out. Both cases still manifest as TranquilFury though. In [[spoiler: Church's case]], the fury was a bit less tranquil than usual. * BladeBelowTheShoulder: [[DualWielding Dual wields]] Hidden Blades. * BigBad: Grandmaster of the local Templars. * TheBrute: It's subtle, but his fighting style and his preference for out-and-out murder as an all-purpose solution marks him as one. * BluntYes: Gives this answer to Connor when the latter asks if they were just going to attack the Red Coats and beat the answers out of them. * ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: He's the final major opponent fought by Connor (Charles Lee goes down without a fight one chapter later), and is perhaps the best enemy swordsman in the game.]] ** PuzzleBoss [[spoiler: He can only be defeated with one very specific move. [[ViewersAreMorons The game gives this move away in big text the moment the boss fight starts.]]]] * DeadpanSnarker: His father/son moments with Connor are pretty much the Crowning Moment of Snarky on his behalf. * [[spoiler:DeathEqualsRedemption: Averted. He remains loyal to his Templar ideals until the very end and openly mocks this trope in his final speech.]] ** [[spoiler: DefiantToTheEnd]] ** [[spoiler: IRegretNothing]] * DecoyProtagonist: For the first three sequences. * EnemyMine: He works with Connor to take down [[spoiler:Benjamin Church]], who stole important resources from the Templars. * [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: While he never publicly admits he actually ''loved'' her (although his journal is a bit more talkative), he's noticeably saddened when he learns of Ziio's death.]] ** Even though the game has only a hints of this, the tie-in novel reveals that he did indeed love his son, going so far as [[spoiler: helping to save him from the gallows at the expense of his fellow Templar's life.]] * EvilBrit: Sort of, considering he is a Templar. In his case, it usually manifests by killing you off without as much of a thought, but in a very polite way. * EvilMentor: Appears to be trying to do this with Connor, corrupting him away from his goals and turning him to a Templar worldview. * [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]] * FaceHeelTurn: Shaun places it as likely, since his father was an Assassin. * TheFettered: Despite his [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness interrogative tendencies]], he disapproves of unfettered behaviour like murdering innocents, enslaving potential allies, and focusing on objectives he's put off for later. * GoodOldFisticuffs: He prefers to brutalize his foes with just his bare hands on occasion ([[EnforcedTrope at which point your weapons are locked out]]). * ImperturbableEnglishman: For the most part, he's cool, calm, witty and {{Badass}} -- a JamesBond figure in a mid-1700's setting. ** On top of that, in the German version he has the same voice actor as {{Daniel Craig}}. * IntroOnlyPointOfView: Only in Sequences 1, 2, and 3. * JerkassHasAPoint: Unlike other Templar leaders we know from across the series, Haytham actually stands for defendable beliefs and has some very solid arguments to back them up, being more of a WellIntentionedExtremist than a real villain, which finally turns the Assassin/Templar battle from good vs. evil to a true clash of equally valid standpoints. * LargeHam: Most of the time he's not, but becomes this when [[spoiler: beating up Benjamin Church.]] * LeParkour * LightningBruiser: Very strong with a brute force fighting style but just as agile as an Assassin. * MeaningfulName: Haytham is apparently an Arabic name meaning "Young Eagle", which would certain fit in with the ThemeNaming of previous protagonists Altair and Ezio. * MurderIsTheBestSolution: Like most Templars, he places very little value on any individual's life. * NiceHat: A tricorn. * NotSoDifferent: The way he moves and operates is nearly identical to an Assassin's, to the point that his being a Templar is TheReveal. This is because he was formerly an Assassin. ** More specifically, he was secretly groomed to become an Assassin by his father, but Templars assassinated the later and recruited Haytham into their order before he could be properly initiated into the Assassins. ** Similarly, his difficult relationship with his son is somewhat similar to William's relationship with his son. ** Also, his habit of killing people for disagreeing with him or just being an inconvenience and the ruthlessness with which he pursues his goals makes him not too different from General Braddock, who he criticizes early in the game for being a GeneralRipper. * OneManArmy: Like father, like son. * [[spoiler: ShadowDictator: His goal is to essentially become this for the budding United States with Charles Lee as president subordinate to him.]] * SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler:His last words to Connor has him complimenting his son in a way.]] -->[[spoiler:Still, I'm proud of you in a way. You have shown great conviction. Strength. Courage. All noble qualities... [[WorthyOpponent I should have killed you long ago]].]] * TheSouthpaw: As seen in his first scene on the ship, he writes with his left hand. ** Actually, if you look close enough during the scenes on the you can see he writes with both hands. * StrongFamilyResemblance: With Connor. * VillainProtagonist: For the first three sequences. * VillainousFriendship: Type I, Haytham looks out for Lee's well being and won't hear a word against him, meanwhile Lee fanboyed over Haytham in his youth and [[spoiler:plans on enacting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Connor for killing Haytham]]. * VisualPun: Many {{Character Tic}}s and visual cues give hints that he's a Templar. One very early one is that he never takes off his NiceHat and he doesn't have a hood (something every other Assassin always has with them). * WalkingSpoiler: Despite being a major character, his whole existence was successfully(!) kept a secret from the audiences for pretty much two years and his sole appearance in some of the game reviews could be considered a major spoiler for those who have yet to play the game. * WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife: Expresses this after annihilating a slaver encampment. * YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Unlike Connor, who prefers to let others go after interrogation, Haytham will simply kill them off after he's done or if he thinks they have nothing useful to tell him. This is apparently because he's unwilling to bother with prisoner maintenance. !!Charles Lee [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Charles_Lee_Assassins_Creed_4212.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Neil Napier A British officer with a constant thirst for power, who joins the Templar order and quickly ends up becoming Haytham's second in command. ---- * AmbitionIsEvil: Even ignoring his other horrible acts, he does some pretty nasty things in his efforts to become Commander-in-Chief. * ArchEnemy: To Connor. * BadassMustache * ButForMeItWasTuesday: It takes several encounters with Connor before he recognizes him as the native american boy he threatened all those years ago. * CreepyBlueEyes * CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: [[spoiler:Tells the imprisoned Connor this, "had you done what I asked" after their previous encounter as a child.]] * TheDragon: To Haytham. ** [[spoiler:DragonAscendant: After Haytham is killed by Connor.]] * EvilIsPetty: See below * [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: Shares a drink with Connor in a pub while both are bleeding out, before Connor stabs him.]] * {{Fanboy}}: Of Haytham, who out and out says that he thinks Charles Lee overestimates him. ** AscendedFanboy: Is a part of the Templar order, just like his idol. * FromNobodyToNightmare: First appears as a fresh-faced Templar hopeful, later becomes TheDragon with designs of becoming Commander-In-Chief, [[spoiler:and ultimately becoming DragonAscendant intent on ruining everything Connor holds dear]]. * FullNameBasis: Those close to him do call him "Charles", but Connor consistently uses his full name. * GracefulLoser: He took his fate reather well. * TheHeavy: While Haytham is the BigBad, Lee is the one who drives Connor's story arc, from their first encounter when Connor's a child to their final clash 30 years on. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: The real life Charles Lee has a pretty bad rap--he was a complete sleaze and TheResenter and he is famous for ordering a retreat against higher orders and retreating his men right into the rest of the army and causing a massacre. Nowadays, some historians consider the retreat justified and a case of ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight that was the only morally and tactically sound choice, but Charles Lee in the game plays off his blatant failure and is actively trying to sabotage the revolution. * JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope / VillainousBreakdown / RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: After Haytham is killed, he threatens to kill all of Connor's allies, family, and friends while making him watch. By this point, he's stopped caring about the Templar Order's higher goals and [[ItsPersonal just wants pay back.]]]] * LeeroyJenkins: Shows signs of this during the prologue missions, but largely holds back due to deferring to the much more meticulous Haytham. Definitely becomes much more pronounced once he comes into authority in his own right. * PetTheDog: His Animus Database entry says he really likes dogs. * PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Doesn't think highly of the Mohawk. * TheResenter: Is very bitter about Washington being chosen over him for the position of Commander-In-Chief. * SmugSnake: Incredibly arrogant and most of his schemes don't end well, especially [[spoiler: after Haytham and his other allies are killed.]] * TookALevelInJerkass: Went from a polite young man in the prologue to an arrogant and hateful man during the Revolution. Of course we only ever see him interact with Haytham and other templars in the prologue so it's possible he was always like that. ** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. Lee's jerkass behavior led Connor [[spoiler:to believe it was Lee and the Templars who attacked his village and killed his mother]], arguably jump-starting Connor's career as an Assassin. Had Lee acted as nice as he was in the prologue, [[spoiler:then Connor might have even joined the Templars in the future]]. * UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness: His Animus database entry says he has very poor hygiene. He visibly looks greasier and filthier after the TimeSkip. * VillainousFriendship: Type I, Haytham looks out for Lee's well being and won't hear a word against him, meanwhile Lee fanboyed over Haytham in his youth and [[spoiler:plans on enacting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Connor for killing Haytham]]. * VocalEvolution: In the early sequences, which take place about 20 years before the main game, his voice is high and kind of boyish (made more noticeable by the fact he spends much of his time fanboying over Haytham). In the main timeline, he sounds like he's channeling ChristopherLee. * [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: Why Connor hates him so. [[spoiler:However it is later revealed he did not kill his mother. Connor still hates him though]] !!Thomas Hickey -->'''Voiced By:''' Allen Leech A Irish born soldier in the British army, he served under William Johnson and joined the Templar Order alongside him.

Connor helps Washington win several battles during the Revolutionary War. Washington is the BigBad of the DLC "The Tyranny of King Washington". Having found a Piece of Eden, Washington goes mad with power and declares himself king of the United States, forgetting everything he fought for and turning the United States into a hellhole. ---- !Normal: * {{Badass}} ** BadassCape ** BadassLongcoat ** FourStarBadass: General after all. * BigGood: Functions as this for the Revolutionaries. ** GoodIsNotSoft: See WhatTheHellHero for why Connor stopped viewing him as such. * TheDragon: Effectively during Haytham's sequences for Braddock. * [[spoiler:BrokenPedestal:]] For Connor. See WhatTheHellHero below. ** However, [[spoiler:in the epilogue, the two at least play a bit of bocce together.]] * EarlyBirdCameo: Makes a brief appearance in Sequence 3 as one of Braddock's officers, but doesn't enter the big picture until much later. * HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Averted. While Washington is shown to be a fairly decent leader and does become Connor's friend, the game doesn't shy away from showing Washington's less-appealing traits. ** Though the game does its best to hide some of them. Washington in the game is rather staid and placid, while in real life his dominant traits outside of social situations were impatience and mild condescension towards his peers (which was a suitable attitude for someone of his standing). ** One omission that stands out is his lack of ambition. One of Washington's most notable traits, and one that is fairly well-known, was the fact that he made it a rule to hide his intense ambitions beneath a veneer of humility and politeness (very nonstandard amongst British-style educated elites for that fact that he bothered to hide anything at all), and that he did in fact crave a certain amount of power (which, granted, tapered off severely by the time his presidency was over). In the main game his purity and humility is {{Flanderized}}, although the DLC plays with this one[[hottip:*:its ending has him sternly reject the suggestions of a voice that he should crown himself king, only to look up and realize that the room was empty of anyone except himself]]. * HumbleHero: In keeping with history. He actually did say, paraphrased, "I'm not worthy of this command," to the Continental Congress. Whether this was humility or honest self-appraisal is left to the viewer. ** In the epilogue, Connor can have a chat with Washington, who wishes to retire to his farm and let others take care of the nation. Connor however states that after all the death and destruction he has wrought, the last thing he deserves is rest. * TheLeader: Commander-in-Chief of the Revolutionaries. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Arguably. It noticeably overlooks his personal feelings about the Natives fighting alongside the Colonists and the entire crux of TheReveal is that [[spoiler:he masterminded the raid that claimed Connor's mom and briefly his village in 1760. In our history, Washington had been retired from any military service for over a year by then.]] Still far more realistic and subtle than a lot of his HistoricalHeroUpgrade-esque treatments. * NiceHat: A tricorn. * WhatTheHellHero: Is on the receiving end of this when [[spoiler:Connor learns that he ordered attacks on Connor's people since they were supporting the British, something that Washington actually did in RealLife]]. * [[spoiler: [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: After finding out Washington ordered the attack on his village that killed his mother, Connor becomes frigid towards him.]] ** [[spoiler:Becomes a bit of ArtisticLicenseHistory when you realize in real life, by the time Connor's village was burned, Washington had been retired from the military and living in Virginia for three years.]] !King Washington: * CoolCrown: It has a bald eagle in its center. * EvilIsHammy: As opposed to the normal George Washington, this Washington is prone to loud crazy speeches about how he is good for America. * EvilOverlord: Becomes one in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''. * EvilFormerFriend: To Connor. Even though in the main continuity their relationship ends poorly, Connor states that the Washington he knew would never condone senseless violence, being a man of reason at the very least. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Averted, since this is all explicitly a WhatIf scenario and thus not what actually happened in "real" history. * HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Interestingly, ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' plays this somewhat straight as well. While the alternate history Washington is TheCaligula, after witnessing the same vision as Connor, the real Washington begs Connor to dispose of the Apple, and is even more determined to not become a tyrant. * HopelessBossFight: Connor tries to fight him when the Bluecoats attack his village. Aided by the Apple and Staff, Washington easily defeats Connor. * MakeSureHesDead: Washington [[spoiler: stuns Connor with the Apple, shoots him with two flintlocks pistols, bayonets him and then shoots him with the musket. Of course, because Connor is [[MadeOfIron Connor]], this only puts him down for five months, but you can't fault George for a lack of effort.]] * ObliviouslyEvil: He seems to have legitimately little to no idea that what he's doing is ''wrong''. In between unhinged bouts of despotism and AxeCrazy behavior, he still invokes the tenants of freedom and liberty not just as political rhetoric but as genuine belief, and will speak of being "King over a free world" without irony. Of course, being exposed to the Apple probably helped cause this. * SlouchOfVillainy: Does this in the promotional artwork, and eventually in the third episode. [[spoiler: He even dies slouching in his throne.]] * TyrantTakesTheHelm * WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: He is driven mad by an Apple of Eden. * YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler: Washington kills Connor's mother with the Apple.]] !!Creator/BenjaminFranklin -->'''Voiced By:''' Jim Ward A leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat who became one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. ---- * TheAtoner: Becomes this in [[spoiler: ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' after switching sides.]] * CoolOldGuy * GentlemanAndAScholar * LikesOlderWomen: He even does a treatise on the benefits of taking an older woman as one's lover. * MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Says this word-for-word in ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' when he is freed of the Apple's influence.]] * NiceGuy: In keeping with his general historical reputation * ReallyGetsAround: According to him, he has "sampled many women". !!Samuel Adams -->'''Voiced By:''' Mark Lindsay Chapman A key ally of the Assassins, Adams was one of the leading revolutionaries in Boston. He introduced Connor to many other important patriots and assisted him in finding information on Templar activities. ---- * GenreSavvy: Despite knowing nothing about the history between Connor and Lee, he immediately recognizes that Connor was ready to attack the guy and forcefully separates them before a fight could begin in the middle of Congress. * GuileHero: Generally a good fellow, but not above using propaganda and other "theater tricks" to sway opinion his way. Connor initially expresses a certain uncomfortableness with relying on dishonesty and bribery, but Sam quickly tells him that it was either that or be hanged for a crime he didn't commit. * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Killed by Putnam as part of an ambush in the second episode of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}.]] * LaResistance: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Sam Adams is the leader of the rebellion against King Washington. * MrExposition: He informs Connor about how to lower his notoriety by removing posters and bribing town criers and printers. * NiceGuy: Is very friendly with Connor and the first to break through Connor's HatesBeingTouched stance. * SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: A lot of his conversations with Connor boil down to this. !!Paul Revere -->'''Voiced By:''' Bruce Dinsmore A silversmith and leading figure in the Sons of Liberty, he assists Connor several times. ---- * {{Adorkable}}: He's just so animated and enthusiastic... * NiceHat * NoIndoorVoice: Well, he has an ''indoor'' voice, but he projects his instructions rather loudly for someone sharing the same horse. ** He also speaks quite loudly for delivering instruction to revolutionaries when the people they're revolting against are patrolling the immediate area. ** There's really no explanation for the latter, but the former could be considered [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since they should be going at a full gallop. It would be harder to hear over the sound of the horse's hoofbeats. * WelcomeToCorneria -->''EXCELLENT! WE ARE RIGHT ON COURSE!'' -->''THIS WAY, CONNOR!'' !!Israel Putnam [[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/IsraelPutnamAC_6381.png]] -->'''Voiced By:''' Andreas Apergis A general in the Continental Army, he becomes a key ally to Connor. ---- * [[spoiler: AxCrazy: Is noticeably unstable in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''.]] * BadassBoast: At the Battle of Bunker Hill, he mentions that he killed the last wolf in Connecticut, escaped capture by the Caughnawaga Mohawk, and survived a shipwreck in the Battle of Havana. These events really happened, though Putnam exaggerates his role in them. * [[spoiler: BadBoss: Treats his troops rather poorly in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''. He even gutted a man for having dirt in his musket.]] * [[spoiler:BigDamnHeroes: After Connor escapes execuation and assassinates Thomas Hickey, Putnam arrives to stop the guards from killing Connor and proclaims him to be a hero of the Revolution.]] * CigarChomper: Is rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth, and matches the typical personality as well. It's said in the database that he may in fact be the UrExample of the CigarChomper, having picked up the habit in Havana and introduced the coolness of cigars to the Colonies. * TheCynic: Views Connor's intended courses of action at the Battle of Bunker Hill as suicidal. * [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself: He is sorry for his crimes, but also admits that the Apple just brought out the evil already inside him.]] * FourStarBadass * KnightInSourArmor * RousingSpeech: At least Connor thinks so. Israel just views it as motivational garbage. * SeeTheWhitesOfTheirEyes: Delivers the iconic line during his RousingSpeech. * [[spoiler:TookALevelInJerkass: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' {{DLC}}.]] !!James Barrett -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? A Colonel in the Continental Army, he leads the defense of Concord. ---- * ColonelBadass * {{Jerkass}}: When Connor arrives at the Battle of Concord, he treats him like the greenest combatant this side of the Atlantic, [[DudeWheresMyRespect even though two other officers vouch for him]]. ** [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King]]: He is a lot more amicable after the battle. * WarIsHell: Expresses this in his sombre post-battle talk with Connor. !!Benjamin Tallmadge, Jr. -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? The head of Intelligence for the Continental Army, Tallmadge was the son of an Assassin and maintained close ties to the Brotherhood, although he did not join because he wished to have a family one day and believed he could not do both. ---- * DeadpanSnarker * MajorlyAwesome * RedPillBluePill: Opted for the "Blue Pill" of a family life over the "Red Pill" of an Assassin's life, believing the two options exclusive. * TheSmartGuy * TheSpymaster !!The Marquis de Lafayette -->'''Voiced By:''' Vince Corazza A French aristocrat who joined the American Revolution, he becomes a friend of Connor and an ally of the Assassins. ---- * FourStarBadass * NiceGuy: He and Connor get along extremely well, even after Connor has a falling out with Washington. * NoNameGiven: Oddly, he has ample speaking screentime but is never identified by name and his codex entry doesn't have a picture. * NumberTwo: To Washington. * OverlyLongName: Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette. !!Benedict Arnold -->'''Voiced By:''' Paul Hopkins Only appearing in PS3/PC DLC, Connor encounters Arnold on a begrudgingly-accepted mission to root out a traitor at West Point. ---- * [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy: In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' the Apple of Eden compelled him to be loyal to King Washington.]] ** [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself: After Connor mortally wounds him, Arnold begs him to stop Washington.]] * HazyFeelTurn: Betrays the Colonials and attempts to sell out West Point to the British. To the Colonials, this is a full FaceHeelTurn, but given how strained Connor's relationship with Washington is at this point, he views it as karma for Washington's past actions. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Notably averted. While somewhat of a {{Jerkass}}, he isn't displayed as a member of the Templars and reactions to the betrayal are more about PR than morality, Connor even treating it as a TakeThat to Washington. ** If anything, this might constitute a HistoricalVillainDowngrade given that his (significant!) pre-defection corruption, generally loose morals, and legitimately petty reasons for joining the Crown are not covered; it even goes so far as to have him [[spoiler: beg Connor to stop King Washington's inhumane rampages in the noncanon Downloadable content.]] * {{Jerkass}}: He's somewhat curt to Connor; understandable, given that A) Connor's being a SpannerInTheWorks for his plans, and B) he's trying to keep Connor distracted long enough for his designs to unfold. * KarmaHoudini: Manages to get away in the confusion, and Connor couldn't care less. [[spoiler:Although he is the first assassination target in the ''Tyranny of King Washington'' DLC. Connor makes reference to Arnold's escape at West Point, which suitably confuses him due to the DLC being set in an alternate continuity that Connor is thrown into. This also confuses Xbox players who had no idea why Connor hated him.]] * NiceHat [[/folder]] [[folder:British Army]] !!Loyalists / British Army in General The core {{Mooks}} and CannonFodder of the game, these are soldiers loyal to the British crown and [[UnwittingPawn those behind the scenes]]. ---- * AlwaysChaoticEvil: Subverted. Connor initially thinks that ''all'' Loyalists are Templars, but later realizes that they're just [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood misled]] by them. * AnAxeToGrind: The weapon of the Scottish Highlanders. * BayonetYa: The primary weapon of the army overall. * CityGuards: Function as this while the British are in power. * EliteMooks: The Scottish Highlanders. * FacelessMooks: Some of the Redcoats wear obscuring scarves over their faces. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Subverted on purpose. * NiceHat: Tricorns abound and, for the Highlanders, bearskins. * [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood Not Evil, Just Misguided]]: While they are refusing to grant independence to a nation that is demanding it, they are also [[UnwittingPawn under the influence of the Templars.]] * SweetPollyOliver: Highly effeminate grunts heavily suggest that at least some of the FacelessMooks are this. Its also supported by the Redcoat multiplayer character's background. * UnwittingPawn: To the Templars. * WrittenByTheWinners: The Animus notes that the only reason the Loyalists are considered the bad guys is because the Colonists ultimately won. They '''were''' refusing to allow the colonies to become independent though, so they're not innocent either. ** Of course, the Animus notes are [[JerkassHasAPoint written by Shaun, a Britishman with a massive axe to grind on the issue]] so at least the "only reason" part of this is worth taking with a grain of salt. Particularly since a lot of their counterinsurgency tactics horrified even the Americans and *Bourbons.* !!Edward Braddock -->'''Voiced By:''' Carlo Mestroni A thoroughly unpleasant officer of the British, he used to work with Haytham and the Templars before his sheer brutality lead to a falling-out. ---- * AdaptationalAttractiveness: He appears quite young for a white-haired 60 year old, though the usual Animus-related handwaves apply; especially since Haytham knew him when he was younger. * BadBoss * DirtyCoward * EvilBrit * EvilFormerFriend: Used to work with Haytham, but his raw brutality made for irreconcilable differences between the two. ** Of course this is played with in a cute way considering they're both Templars, but EvenEvilHasStandards. * [[spoiler: EvilMentor: In an odd sort of way, to Washington.]] * GeneralFailure * GeneralRipper: These tendencies ultimately caused his split with Haytham. * HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Inverted. He begins running almost immediately after the attack on his expedition begins. Historically, he kept his cool and tried to rally the column during the attack and had several horses shot out from under him before he himself was felled. Also, unlike the game he managed to cling to life for four days after the battle. * HistoricalVillainUpgrade: How much is a subject of debate, but it definitely happened. Be definitely had similar goals for his expedition to the game version, but that was partially because it would've been insane to *not* after a century or so of constant brush war in North America. His shooting one of his own men on the expedition is based on a historical allegation (that he took his sword and ran through a redcoat hiding behind a tree for cowardice). And unlike his DirtyCoward role, he historically kept trying to rally and command his men cooly until he was shot. * {{Jerkass}} * JerkassHasAPoint: While the way he goes about it is horrible, he is absolutely right about the situation and French intentions and it is the war he spawned that ultimately paved the way for Haytham's later schemes regarding the American Revolution. * TheUnfettered: Destroys anything he considers an obstacle. * WouldHurtAChild: Once murdered a whole family, children included, just to hasten his own escape. ** Oddly enough, whether it actually hastened his escape is debatable since Haytham doesn't clarify on how it happened, and it was because one of the victimized family members had the gall to [[DisproportionateRetribution insult him for abandoning him.]] !!Silas Thatcher -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? Cold-hearted and cruel, Silas is a British officer and slaver with nearly a hundred soldiers at his command, including many Redcoats. ---- * BoomHeadshot: His fate when TheDogBitesBack. * EvilBrit * {{Jerkass}} * StarterVillain * VillainousBreakdown: When he discovers that his base is under attack. He ''barely'' regains his composure enough to issue orders to his men. !!John André -->'''Voiced By:''' ??? Only appearing in PS3/PC DLC, he was the British officer working with Benedict Arnold in the effort to take West Point. ---- * AntiVillain: Notably the ''only'' British officer who appears in-game and isn't a {{Jerkass}} or member of the Templars. * GracefulLoser * MajorlyAwesome * TheSpymaster [[/folder]] [[folder:Homestead Residents]] !!Godfrey and Terry A pair of lumberjacks, plus their wives Catherine and Diane, who join the homestead after Connor saves Terry's life from a very moist logging accident. ---- * HairTriggerTemper: Terry has a rather short fuse, but gradually gets it under control. * [[IOweYouMyLife He Owes You His Life]]: Godfrey "translates" this for the recently rescued and still spluttering Terry. --> What this knob-end is trying to say is he's forever in your debt, sir. * PluckyComicRelief * SeriousBusiness: Their first conversation is arguing over whether the Iroquois are a "confederation" or a "tribe." * ThoseTwoGuys * VitriolicBestBuds: The two are constantly bickering and in competition with each other. !!Myriam A wandering hunter, she was shot in the arm by poachers in homestead territory, joining the settlement after Connor deals with the situation. ---- * ActionGirl: Besides being a huntress, she's participates in fights to protect her fellow homesteaders. * BadassInDistress: When Connor meets her, she's been shot in the arm and he carries her back to the Homestead so Achilles can help her. * FriendlySniper: Amicable and friendly sort that can shoot down a distant cougar mid-pounce. * [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: Ultimately to Norris.]] * IOweYouMyLife: Sort of. A knife given to her as a gift by Norris (who has a serious crush on her) winds up saving her life during a close encounter with a poacher, at which point she starts to reciprocate his feelings for her. * LeParkour: Almost matches Connor's skill in freerunning. ** In fact she may actually be better at it then he is! One of the homestead missions involves chasing her through the forest, at the end of the chase Connor is out of breath and doubled over while Myriam looks nearly unaffected. Bonus points for her being in a full length [[spoiler:wedding]] dress during this sequence. * NiceHat * TheOldestProfession: Defied; she chose "the open air" over a brothel or convent. * [[spoiler:RunawayBride: Until Connor talked her out of it.]] * WalkingTheEarth: Lived "where the land makes it easiest" before joining the homestead. !!Lance O'Donnell A Boston carpenter evicted from his home by Loyalists, he joins the homestead after Connor rescues him from some nasty bandits. ---- * BerserkButton: Selling the "lifeblood" of one's trade, and particularly ''his'' stuff. * {{Jerkass}}: Not him personally, but his thieving apprentice Patrick certainly is. * MundaneObjectAmazement: The designs that excited him so? They're for [[spoiler:a chair that ''folds''!]] * NonActionGuy * PoorCommunicationKills: Narrowly averted, thanks to Connor. The bandits who robbed him, unsatisfied with their meager earnings, set fire to Lance's wagon and dangled him over a cliff by a rope around his legs. After being rescued, Lance laments that the tools in his wagon ''were'' valuable to the right man. * ShopKeeper: Works as a carpenter. !!Norris A miner from Montreal, Connor saved his life and allowed him to set up shop at the homestead's local mine. ---- * CanadaEh: Hails from Montreal. * DoggedNiceGuy: For [[spoiler: Myriam.]] * [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: Ultimately to Myriam.]] * KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: His real name is Maurice. He got the nickname while in Boston, apparently stemming from a mispronunciation of his real name, and he let it stick through a combination of being tired of correcting people and because some lady said she liked the name. He doesn't bother clearing this up with the homesteaders since everyone already knows him as Norris. !!David Walston Commonly referred to as "Big Dave," he is a blacksmith who joins Connor to hide away from the British, having deserted from their army. ---- * TheBlacksmith * DefectorFromDecadence: Deserted from the British army. !!Ellen A seamstress from New York with an abusive husband, she joined the homestead at Connor's offer for a life away from said spouse. ---- * DomesticAbuse: Her husband is an alcoholic {{Jerkass}} who, despite Ellen's assurance that she could handle him, lead to their daughter seeking Connor's help in driving him off. * OhCrap: The husband's reaction to Connor after their initial encounter. * OutdoorsyGal: Not Ellen herself, but her daughter Maria is constantly described running of on rambunctious deeds around the homestead, sometimes comparing her climbing to Connor. * ShopKeeper: A seamstress by trade. !!Father Timothy An English minister who came to the colonies to "provide God to those who seek His salvation, not spoon feed His word to those who already have their own." ---- * GoodShepherd * NiceHat !!Oliver and Corrine An innkeeper and his wife, who lost their previous inn when the British commandeered it. They build a new one in the Homestead. ---- * FatSlob: Averted. Both of them are fat but they are very kind and welcoming. * HappilyMarried !!Warren and Prudence A farmer couple of African descent, they join the homestead after losing everything to some cruel soldiers. ---- * BabiesEverAfter: They've been trying for one for a long time, ultimately getting their wish at the end of their questline. It's a boy they name "Hunter." * HappilyMarried: The two clearly care for each other and eagerly want to have a baby, which they ultimately get. * KickTheDog: The victims of such when Connor pulled a BigDamnHero; soldiers had salted their land, killed their animals, and were just starting to turn their attention to the couple. * NonActionGuy: Well, Warren ''tried'', but it wasn't going well before Connor arrived. Granted, a farmer with no formal training against multiple soldiers wasn't exactly an ideal match. !!Lyle White A doctor by trade, he's fallen on hard times thanks to the British labelling him as the "White Death." ---- * DeadlyDoctor: The British used MaliciousSlander to make the people believe he is one. * DrowningMySorrows: Connor finds him like this when seeking him out. He snaps out of it upon hearing of Prudence's pregnancy. * MaliciousSlander: His reputation as the "White Death" stems from the fact that he treated Patriot casualties against British orders.

In an alternate universe where Connor finds her still alive in his adulthood and gives her a sudden hug, she is just hilariously nonplussed and gently pushes him off. * MadeASlave: Was part of a group of slaves being delivered to Silas Thatcher. It doesn't last long. * MissingMom: To Connor. * StarCrossedLovers: Somewhat. She states that she still has affection for Haytham, but also sees him as ruthless in his endeavors. * StiffUpperLip: She does not bow down to pressure. * TechnicalPacifist: Doesn't kill a young George Washington even while holding him at knife point while he's struggling and hitting her in the face to get free, letting Haythem take the responsibility of getting his hands bloody and slaying her enemies. * TheStoic: Seems like it's InTheBlood. * TheUnpronounceable: She goes by "Ziio" for those who struggle with her name. !!Kanen'tó:kon -->'''Voiced By:''' Akwiratékha Martin Connor's distant cousin and best friend, he eventually becomes the leader of their tribe, [[spoiler: however his siding with the British and a ''major'' misunderstanding leads to Connor having to kill his best friend]]. ---- * BadassNative: Though it takes a while for him to grow into the trope. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * BerserkButton: If he thinks you've betrayed him, nothing will change his mind. * TheDeterminator: Grows into this trope as an adult. ''Definitely'' embodies this in the DLC. * FatBestFriend: Somewhat on the pudgy side in his younger days. * [[spoiler:HazyFeelTurn: Sides with the British and decides to retaliate against Colonial attacks against his people.]] * TheKlutz: He's not the most agile or graceful kid, but he grows out of it as an adult. * LaResistance: Fights alongside [[spoiler: Sam Adams in the alternate universe, probably as his second-in-command.]] * YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Connor tells him this when they go on a hunting mission as teenagers after he voices his doubt in his climbing and hunting abilities. The advice appears to work; he catches enough rabbits to make up for Connor's lack of prey. * YoungerThanHeLooks: It's confirmed he's roughly the same age as Connor but looks quite a bit older than him when they are adults. [[/folder]] [[folder:Multiplayer Characters]] !!Tropes Pertaining to all the characters ---- * BladeBelowTheShoulder: All of them have access to a hidden blade, knife, or short hook to execute their stealthier kills. * GoodScarsEvilScars: Male characters can have these added to them. * IShallTauntYou: They all have unique taunts that can be used at any time during a match, and are necessary to earn certain achievements. * LeParkour: Easily just as good at this as Connor himself. * LightIsGood[=/=]DarkIsEvil: Notably, the description for the characters' alternate white outfit says they are "revealing the honorable valor" of the character while their alternate black outfit instead reveals "the dark side" of the character. ** ManInWhite[=/=]WomanInWhite: The ''Light Costumes''. ** RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Many of the ''Dark Costumes'' also have a bit of red in them. * TribalFacePaint: : All of the animi avatars have a variety of "war paints" available for customization purposes. These tend to look a bit out of place on the more well-groomed characters though. !!The Bear (Kuruk) [[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bear_-_Resized_965.png]] A Pawnee warrior from a faraway land, Kuruk left his homeland after his elder brother was made chieftain of the tribe. Now exiled, he creates weapons of his own that he wields with remarkable effectiveness. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * AnimalMotifs: ** Fittingly, his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him [[NemeanSkinning wearing the fur of a skinned bear.]] ** Another of his costumes, the ''Warrior Costume'', instead adds a cute, little bear paw tattoo on his chest. * AnimalThemeNaming * BadassNative ** BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BodyPaint: With many variations. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his secondary weapons. * TheBrute * DangerousDeserter: Though he deserted from his own tribe, rather than the military. * DropTheHammer: A custom-made war club is his standard weapon. * TheExile: Voluntarily so. * FashionableAsymmetry: His standard outfits have shades of this. ** The winter version of his outfits add a pelt over his left shoulder, injecting some symmetry. * HairTriggerTemper: He has a short fuse, apparently. * [[{{Mooks}} Mook]]: Although it's unknown whether Kuruk had allied himself with either the Templars or the Assassins, Erudito claims he was nothing but a grunt. * OnlyOneName * [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver Red And Black And Mean All Over]]: His outfits are predominantly black and red, though alternate color schemes are also available. * SavagePiercings: He has a nose ring. !!The Carpenter (John O'Brien) [[quoteright:271:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Carpenter_-_Resized_7342.png]] An Irishman of solitary nature, John O'Brien sought to start a new life in America, because he found his liberties to be continually challenged in his homeland. He is at heart a kind man, but years of persecution at the hands of the Templar Order have made him prone to lashing out when provoked. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * {{Badass}} ** BadassMustache ** BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil: The latter is subverted, since his rage tended to be directed at [[AssholeVictim Templars.]] * BayonetYa: His muskets have them. * TheBrute: His style in combat appears to primarily hinge on brute force. * TheButcher: His ''Champion's Pack'' costume is called this. * ColdSniper: Two of his alternate weapons are muskets. * DropTheHammer: The weapon he is standardly equipped with. * {{Expy}}: After the Blacksmith and the Bombardier, appearing in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively, we now have the Carpenter, John O'Brien, as our new go-to-guy for brutal, hammer-related killing sprees. ** WholeCostumeReference: His ''Champion's Pack'' is very evocative of the Executioner, having him don a blood-stained apron. It's also called TheButcher outfit. * HairTriggerTemper: His temper tends to act up when faced with the Templars. * NiceHat: You can give him a particularly nice fedora. * StoutStrength * TooManyBelts !!The Commander (Matthew Davenport) [[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Commander_-_Resized_6252.png]] A British military officer that served during the American Revolutionary war and a member of the Templar Order. Displaying profiency with a sword, as well as a cunning mind, Matthew Davenport swiftly rose to the ranks of commander. Amongst his troops is his daughter, Eleanor Mallow, who carried out Templar-related missions for him. ---- * AFatherToHisMen: Described as being one. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassMustache: Present on the same two hairstyles, but absent on the last one. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his alternate weapons are this. * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are maces. * {{Expy}}: Of the Captain, Donato Mancini, from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], with both characters being high-ranked military officers who use a RoyalRapier in combat. Likewise shares similarities with the Marquis from the same game, who also commanded troops. * MookLieutenant * NiceHat * RoyalRapier: Wields one as his standard weapon. * SinisterScimitar: One of his alternate swords resembles one. * TheStrategist: Aside from being a competent fighter in direct combat, he's also a cunning strategist. !!The Coyote Man [[quoteright:277:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Coyote_Man_-_Resized_7774.png]] A social recluse, the Coyote Man would fight tooth and nail for Templar interests, primarily by hunting the eastern coast of America for Assassins. One of his major accomplishments was killing an Assassin Mentor with his bare hands, or so the rumours go. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * AnimalThemeNaming * BadassNative * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BodyPaint: Including a crazy amount of face-paint, as can be seen in his concept art. * CoolMask: You can equip him with two rather sinister-looking masks, as part of his hairstyles. The first seems of tribal origin while the other appears to be part of the skull of an animal. * HooksAndCrooks: Two of his alternate weapons. * KnifeNut: His default weapon, a shank made from sharpened bone. * LeanAndMean: His body is undeniably muscular, yet still quite thin. * NoNameGiven: The only multiplayer character that lacks an actual name. * PrimalStance: He seems fully capable of standing upright, but usually slinks into this position. His concept art features him in this kind of stance as well. * SlasherSmile: In his concept art. * WalkingShirtlessScene: Except for his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. !!The French Agile One of the avatars usable in the multiplayer for ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIIILiberation''. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Seen using a tomahawk in his promotional image. * BadassCape: Not seen wearing [[WalkingShirtlessScene much else on his torso]]. * DominoMask: His TribalFacePaint gives this effect. * NoNameGiven: His name has not been revealed. * TribalFacePaint: A red mask-like paint across his eyes. !!The Governor (Bernardo de Galvez) ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassMustache * FriendlySniper: Two of his alternate weapons are silver muskets. ** BayonetYa * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * LastStand: Implied by his third type of customization, titled "Last Stand". * RoyalRapier * WholeCostumeReference: His outfit is somewhat similar to the Officer Teodor Viscardi's default outfit from VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood. !!The Hessian (Gerhard Vonstatten) [[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hessian_-_Resized_5039.png]] A Hessian soldier that was in the employ of the British Army and a member of the Templar Order, Gerhard Vonstatten was an individual that relished in the violent chaos of war. He would follow orders without hesitation, never considering defeat as an option. ---- * AxCrazy[=/=]BloodKnight: Stated as "standing out" [[WarIsGlorious in his appetite for war]] and also being "an unstoppable killing machine" that carried out his orders without question. Aside from his bloodlust, there seems to be little else to the character. This is supported by his biography, which describes him as having "virtually no personality to speak of". * BayonetYa: His infantry rifle has one. * BeardOfEvil: Not by default, but he can be given one. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his alternate weapons. * ColdSniper: Wields an infantry rifle as his standard weapon. * GermanicEfficiency * NiceHat: It's even decorated with a feather. * PistolWhipping: His default rifle kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. * RapidFireFisticuffs: One of his custom kill animations have him throwing his rifle at his target, who will awkwardly catch it, before he gets some quick punches in. As his target falls, he snatches back his rifle and fires a bullet straight through their brain, finishing the job. * RoyalRapier: One of his alternate weapons. * SociopathicSoldier: Seems to be a Type II. * WarIsGlorious !!The Highlander (Duncan [=McGill=]) Duncan [=McGill=] was a Scottish highlander who ended up in the colonies after being exiled from Scotland with little more than his sword and the clothes on his back. While [=McGill=] did not care much for the conflict of the American Revolutionary War, and also didn't have much of a favorable opinion of the British, he took up his weapon to scupper the Templars' ambitions in the New World, due to his great loyalty to the Assassins. As a result of this, [=McGill=] became the subject of folk tales, under the nickname of "Red Rage Duncan." ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassMustache * FriendlySniper: Two of his alternate weapons are muskets. ** BayonetYa * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * ManInAKilt: Being Scottish in this time period. * NiceHat: His Black Watch champion pack includes a feather bonnet. * NotInThisForYourRevolution: Duncan only fought in the Revolutionary War in order to fight against Templar interests for the Assassins. * RedBaron: "Red Rage Duncan" * RoyalRapier: Shown wielding a sword that looks a lot like one but also differs in appearance slightly from the ones used by other characters. * TribalFacePaint: Some of his face paint is similar to the woad in ''{{Braveheart}}''. * ViolentGlaswegian: [[ManInAKilt The Kilt]], his title, and his epithet strongly suggest this. * YouCantGoHomeAgain: Was exiled from Scotland. !!The Huntsman (William de Saint-Prix) [[quoteright:265:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Huntsman_-_Resized_9836.png]] An Assassin born into a wealthy family of French descent, William de Saint-Prix was educated on the most diverse of subjects. Because of his nobility, he was rejected by revolutionaries, though he garnered the respect of his Assassin peers through his courage and intelligence. ---- * {{Badass}}: His promotional render definitely exudes this. ** BadassBeard: A goatee vaguely similar to Ezio's. ** BadassLongcoat ** CulturedBadass: As a noble, he received a good education on a very large variety of subjects, particularly excelling at science and literature. This knowledge allowed him to craft weapons and develop his own fighting style. * [[CoatHatMask CoatHatScarf]]: His ''Champion's Pack'' costume gives him a mouth-covering scarf similar to that of the Nightstalker. * {{Expy}}: Aside from his assassin-like predecessors, the Prowler and the Sentinel, he's also a bit evocative of Ezio Auditore, being a member of a nobility and a man of privilege who became an assassin. He even resembles Ezio a bit physically, having the same type of build and a similar goatee. * HooksAndCrooks: Uses a hook as his WeaponOfChoice. * InTheHood * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * NiceHat: He wears it over his hood. * RoyalRapier: Two of his alternate weapons. * RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Namely, killing Templars. !!The Independent (Alsoomse) [[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Independent_-_Resized_54.png]] Alsoomse was a fiercely temperamental Shawnee woman that was considered more independent than her peers, due to the solitary life she had led. A champion for justice and equality, Alsoomse would fight to the death to defend her beliefs. ---- * ActionGirl[=/=]DarkActionGirl ** BadassNative * AnAxeToGrind: Utilises a tomahawk as her standard weapon. * AnimalMotifs: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit is called "The Wildcat", having her [[NemeanSkinning wear fur from a skinned animal.]] * BladeOnAStick: Two of her secondary weapons. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins ** BraidsOfAction * HairTriggerTemper: As she grew older, her violent temperament became more and more apparent. * HistoricalFiction: Erudito's hacked version of her biography rather frighteningly suggests that Alsoomse and her backstory - a cliché underdog story, according to him - were completely fabricated by the Templars and that she never even existed during the period of the American Revolution. * KnifeNut: Two of her secondary weapons. * MeaningfulName: Her name, Alsoomse, literally translates into "independent", her character title. * MsFanservice ** BareYourMidriff: Though she does cover herself up a bit more when she's in colder environments. ** ShesGotLegs: And does not hesitate to show them off either, if her standard outfit is any indication, in which she's only got a pair of ModestyShorts. She'll sensibly opt for a pair of warmer pants if the weather gets chillier though, averting ExposedToTheElements. * NotAfraidToDie: Stated as being willing to die for the ideals that she believed in. * OnlyOneName * WomanInWhite: Aside from the ''Light Costume'', her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit is also quite white. !!The Lady Maverick (Gillian [=McCarthy=]) [[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lady_Maverick_-_Resized_7816.png]] An orphan, Gillian [=McCarthy=] relied on her many ''talents'' to escape the life of the streets, seducing herself up the social ladder so that she could better protect herself and her younger brother, and became a Templar in the process. Many powerful men fell for her charms, allowing her to learn their best guarded secrets. ---- * TheBaroness: Sexpot variety. * DarkActionGirl: Although she just wants to help herself and her brother survive, she's still rather underhanded about it. According to Erudito [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope she even joined the Templars]] and also [[SelfMadeOrphan killed her parents.]] ** BadassCape: Gets one in her ''Warrior Costume''. ** BadassLongcoat: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has her wearing one of these. * CainAndAbel: What her relationship with her brother seems to have turned into. * EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Possibly her brother, the Robber. Then again, if Erudito's mentioning her "selling him for a can of beans" isn't a joke, then perhaps not. * EvilRedhead * {{Expy}}: Fullfills the role of voluptuous, Templar-affiliated vixen as the [[TheOldestProfession Courtesans]], [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Fiora]] [[HeelFaceTurn Cavazza]], from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], and [[IdenticalStranger Fabiola]] [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Cavazza]], from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]], have done before her, though not as [[TheOldestProfession explicitly]]. ** WholeCostumeReference: One of her available costumes is called "the Courtesan" costume, which changes the Lady Maverick's outfit to look like Fiora Cavazza's default outfit. It's not a carbon copy, but it is very reminiscent of said outfit, dying it in the same colourscheme and adding some [[ZettaiRyouiki thigh-high socks]]. * FemmeFatale * HairDecorations: One of her hairstyles has her wear a floral headpiece quite reminiscent of that of the Courtesans. * HooksAndCrooks: Has two of them as possible secondary weapons. * JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Her social climbing eventually led her to join the Templars. * KnifeNut: Her standard weapon. * ModestyShorts: Wears them under her MiniDressOfPower, but they're white, so they're barely visible. * MsFanservice: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], considering she needed to flaunt her good looks if she wanted to catch the attention of powerful men. ** MiniDressOfPower: Comes in many flavours. ** OfCorsetsSexy: Present on all of her costumes. ** ShowSomeLeg * NiceHat: Her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit includes a tricorn hat, decorated with a feather. * OrphansOrdeal: Although according to Erudito, [[SelfMadeOrphan she was actually the one who killed them.]] * RedheadInGreen * RoyalRapier: Two of her alternate weapons. * SiblingTeam ** BrotherSisterTeam: Used to have one with her brother, Fillan [=McCarthy=], the Robber. * TheSociopath: She has some signs of this, namely killing her parents, manipulating her brother, and just generally using people to get what she wants. * ThemeNaming: She and her brother have rhyming names, which Erudito mocks in his hacked files on them. * TheVamp: Implied to be one. * ViolentGlaswegian: Is of Scottish background. !!The Mackandal Bodyguard !!The Mountebank (Victor Wolcott) A British doctor shrouded in mystery and a member of the Templar Order, Victor Wolcott was well-known for his experiments, fascinated by biology as he was. He would also brew various potions and medicine, some of which were rumoured to keep the patient from the brink of death. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * BeardOfEvil * BadassLongcoat * CombatMedic: Said to have elixers that could keep patients from the brink of death. * DarkIsEvil: His Dark Costume, Undertaker Costume, and even his default look all have him dressing in primarily black clothing. * DeadlyDoctor: Continuing the tradition set by Malfatto and Seraffo. * EvilBrit * {{Expy}}: The American Revolution's version of the {{Deadly Doctor}}s from the Renaissance, the Doctor and the Ottoman Doctor, appearing in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively. * FourEyesZeroSoul ** HighClassGlass: His beard and glasses can be changed to a goatee and monocle. ** OpaqueLenses: Much like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood The Engineer's]] goggles, his glasses are sporting these. * KnifeNut: Is shown holding one in his promotional render, and indeed it is his standard weapon. * HooksAndCrooks: Two of his alternate weapons. * NiceHat: Wears a pretty nice-looking top hat. * SnakeOilSalesman: Given what a "mountebank" is... !!The Nightstalker ("Joe") [[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Night_Stalker_-_Resized_4440.png]] A mentally unhinged mercenary that would roam the streets of London at night, instilling fear into the populace. His true name is unknown, with "Joe" being a nickname he was given after one of his victims was heard shouting the name before they were murdered. [[HeroWithBadPublicity Secretly a dedicated member of the Assassins Order.]] ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * AxCrazy: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], since he only pretends to be. ** PsychoForHire: Again, subverted, due to these being rumours he uses to his own advantage. * CoatHatMask: Or at least Coat, Hat, Scarf. His "Renegade Pack" CoolMask plays it more straight. * DarkIsEvil: Or is it...? ** DarkIsNotEvil: Is actually a dedicated assassin. * {{Expy}}: Takes over the SerialKiller torch from Malfatto from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]]. He's also quite reminiscent of the Renegade from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]], especially visually; lean rather than muscular, keeps his face hidden and has some AxCrazy tendencies. In fact, the Night Stalker can even be equipped with one of the Renegade's masks through DownloadableContent. ** However, as he is secretly an assassin, he actually subverts this. * TheFaceless: His face is almost completely covered by the scarf he wears over his mouth and nose. Played even more straight when wearing the Renegade's helmet. * HellBentForLeather * HeroWithBadPublicity * HooksAndCrooks: Utilizes the newly-introduced hook as his standard weapon. * InTheHood: His ''Champion's Pack'' Outfit, called the "Mad Killer", has one in place of his usual fedora. FridgeBrilliance occurs when one remembers that he is secretly an Assassin and this trope is a part of the Assassins' general uniform. * {{Irony}}: He's a member of the Assassins order but he would later be turned into an Animi Avatar for a Templar training program. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. In addition, his "Mad Killer" outfit features a sheathed knife. * LeanAndMean: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] * NiceHat: Several types of fedoras are available. * OnlyInItForTheMoney: The rumors went that coin was his only true motivation, when in fact it was a desire for justice. * OnlyOneName[=/=]NoNameGiven ** OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Because people had no idea what he was actually called, he was given the moniker "Joe", after one of his Templar victims screamed out said name before they were killed. * SerialKiller: What everyone thinks he is. His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit invokes/lampshades this, being called "The Mad Killer" outfit. * TooManyBelts * [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be The Light?]]: He only moves at night, feeding the rumours that he's afraid of the light. ** GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite this, he operates no differently in maps set in broad daylight. !!The Pioneer (Emily Burke) A tomboy at heart, the Irish Emily Burke had difficulty adhering to the typical expectations of her gender at that time. When her father and brothers were lost in the war, Emily abandoned all pretense and relentlessly hunted down anyone she believed to have been involved in the loss of her family. ---- * ActionGirl ** BadassCape: A half-cape similar to the kind worn by Ezio. ** BadassNative: Has the appearance of one in her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit, "The Wild One". * AnAxeToGrind: Two of her alternate weapons. * BayonetYa: Her musket features one. * BlondesAreEvil: Subverted. She's on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, but its against the Templars, [[AssholeVictim who we all know deserve it.]] She was actually considered to be one of the Assassins' most valuable allies, even if she never officially joined them. * BraidsOfAction: One of her hairstyles. * FriendlySniper: The musket is her standard weapon. * {{Irony}}: Despite having been on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the Templars in her time, she would later become an Animi Avatar for a Templar training program. * KnifeNut: Two of her alternate weapons. * NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Her alias of "Calamity Mily." * NiceHat * PistolWhipping: Her default musket kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. One of her custom kill animations has her striking her target in the back of the head, sending them tumbling to the ground, before firing a musket ball straight through their skull. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: After her father and brothers were killed by Templars during the Revolutionary War, she would kill any Templar she considered to be involved with their deaths. * SkirtOverSlacks * {{Tomboy}} ** OneOfTheBoys: Deconstructed, as her bio says that the expectation for her to be a ProperLady (as was to be expected during that time) was something she had a hard time adjusting to as a result of her tomboyishness. She put up with it though, until her father and brothers were killed, at which point she abandoned the pretense. * WomanInBlack: In her Dark Costume obviously, but her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit also has a lot of black in it. * YouKilledMyFather: By the Templars, hence her feud with them. !!The Preacher (Federico Perez) A preacher of Spanish descent and member of the Templar Order, ''Padre'' Federico Perez was unwavering in his faith and saw it as his duty to "cleanse the land of sinners". Which usually involved killing them. Dealing out death as often as forgiveness, he travelled the lands in search of those who needed his 'guidance'. ---- * BadassPreacher: Considering that "The Preacher" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is his title]], it's not hard to see why he fits this. * BladeOnAStick: Some of his alternate weapons. * DropTheHammer: Two of his alternate weapons are mace-like clubs. * {{Expy}}: Continuing the trend set by previous {{Sinister Minister}}s, Brother Ristoro (the Priest) and Cyril of Rhodes (the Deacon), who appeared in [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]] respectively, we now have Padre Federico Perez as the man of the cloth that is completely devoid of any morality whatsoever. ** WholeCostumeReference: Has an available outfit that is called "the Deacon" costume. Like the Lady Maverick's unlockable costume, it's not entirely identical, but certainly evocative enough. In this case, he loses the hat and dons the red robes of the Deacon. * InTheHood: In his aforementioned "Deacon" costume. * HolierThanThou * KnightTemplar[=/=]HeWhoFightsMonsters: A rather literal example. See SinisterMinister below. * NiceHat: Various ones to choose from. * PurpleIsPowerful: His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him in purple, rather than the default, greyish-green. * RealMenLoveJesus * RoyalRapier: Two of his alternate weapons. * SimpleStaff: Seems to be his WeaponOfChoice - albeit with a sharp metal point on the end. * SinisterMinister: Stated as having an obsessive need to [[HolierThanThou "cleanse the land of sinners (Assassins)"]] to the point where he "dealt out death as quickly as he did forgiveness", apparently due to his unwavering faith. His attitude towards heretics was not much better, usually hanging them immediately. !!The Redcoat (Eleanor Mallow) A devoted member of the Templar Order, Eleanor Mallow was the daughter of Commander Matthew Davenport, secretly carrying out missions against the Assassins for him. Young, strong and malleable, she was considered the fascist type that the Templars like. ---- * DarkActionGirl ** BadassCape: Gets one in her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. ** BadassLongcoat: Also a part of her ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. * TheBaroness: Sexpot variety, though not as much as the Lady Maverick. * BayonetYa: Her musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * ColdSniper: Two of her secondary weapons. * DaddysGirl: Since there's no mention whatsoever of her mother, one can assume that she didn't play as large a role in Eleanor's life as her Templar father, who regimented her life in a military fashion and carefully made her into one of the Templars' more capable members. ** DaddysLittleVillain * DownloadableContent * KnifeNut: Two of her alternate weapons. * MilitaryBrat: Explicitly called a brat in her in-game biography. * NiceHat: Buckets of hats to choose from, most of them tricorn ones. * RoyalRapier: Her standard weapon. * SweetPollyOliver: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]] One would expect her to do a more adequate job of concealing her gender, when hiding amongst her father's troops, but the trope never comes into play; she wears her hair long and the uniform itself does little to hide her curves. FridgeBrilliance, since Erudito's hacked version reveals that she wasn't hiding her identity from her father at all, rather she would carry out specific, Templar-related missions for him. * TomboyishPonytail: One of her alternate hairstyles. * WholeCostumeReference: Her Officer alternate outfit has her resembling (perhaps fittingly) the Officer Teodor Viscardi from VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood. !!The Robber (Fillan [=McCarthy=]) As an orphan, Fillan was forced to learn the ways of the streets to survive, becoming a skilled thief while his elder sister, Gillian [=McCarthy=], climbed the social ladder through seduction and manipulation, so that she could better protect him. Not wanting to be a burden, he broke ties with her and now lives each day as it comes. In actuality, it was because his sister joined the Templars, Fillan joining the Assassins soon after. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his alternate weapons. * TheArtfulDodger: And referenced with the title of his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit: "The Snatcher". * BadassLongcoat: Dons one of these in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit. * BaldOfAwesome: One of his hairstyles. * CainAndAbel: What he and his sister's relationship may have turned into, after she joined the Templars. * [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Even The Morally Ambiguous Have Loved Ones]]: Seems to have genuinely loved his sister, or at least until she [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope abandoned him for wealth and power.]] * {{Expy}}: Most notably of the Footpad from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Brotherhood]], who he shares a lot of characteristics with, especially in design. His relationship with his sister, the Lady Maverick, is also uncannily similar to that of the Thief, also from Brotherhood, and her dead brother. ** WholeCostumeReference: In addition, one of his alternate costumes gives his outfit a color scheme identical to the Footpad's. * HooksAndCrooks: A crude grappling hook is his WeaponOfChoice. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * MessyHair: His default hairstyle, most likely to reflect his poor style of life. * OrphansOrdeal * SiblingTeam ** BrotherSisterTeam: Used to be part of one with his sister, Gillian, until she joined the Templars. * ThemeNaming: He and his sister have rhyming names, which Erudito mocks in his hacked files on them. * UnwittingPawn: Erudito theorizes that it was more likely he became this to the assassins as opposed to being a full-fledged member. !!The Silent Shadow (Atasa:ta[=/=]Chogan) An individual of Mohawk descent, Atasa:ta was raised away from his tribe by his father, learning many skills necessary to survive in the wild. When his father was killed by Templars, Atasa:ta started roaming the cities as well, jumping at every opportunity to exact vengeance upon them. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Uses a tomahawk in battle. * AnimalMotifs: Several eagle references throughout his character. * BadassNative ** BadassCape: Has a large variety of them. ** BaldOfAwesome: Although he does have something resembling a ponytail as his default hairstyle. Or it's a really elaborate bunch of feathers. * BayonetYa: His musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * BladeOnAStick: Two of his secondary weapons. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * FriendlySniper: Two of his secondary weapons. * {{Expy}} / ShadowArchetype: He is quite similar to Connor, both being individuals of Mohawk background whose loss of a parent at the hands of the Templars and their associates prompts them to wage war against them. They even both use a tomahawk as their main weapon and have two names each, their Mohawk name, and a more easily pronounceable name. ** WholeCostumeReference: One of his unlockable outfits has him donning a hood and a cape that's similar to the Sentinel. * IHaveManyNames: He went through several name changes during development, which eventually ended with the three he uses now, Atasa:ta being his Mohawk name and Chogan and Krynn most likely being ones he adopted for convenience, like Connor. Before this, he was known as Atasa:ta The Kryn. His multiplayer title also went through several changes, at first being the ''Black Bird'', which then became the ''Shadow'' and then turned into the ''Silent Shadow''. * InTheHood: In his Warrior costume. * {{Irony}}: Despite being the son of an Assassin with a hatred for the Templars, his genetic memories end up being used in an Abstergo project. * NiceHat: His ''Champion's Pack'' outfit gives him a tri-corn one. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Stated as "always looking for a chance at revenge" after [[YouKilledMyFather his father was killed by a British Officer]]. * YouKilledMyFather: A British Officer, hence his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. ** According to an Erudito hack, it was actually by a Templar raiding party. !!The Sharpshooter (Caleb Garret) Described as "a master of all things guns", Caleb Garret joined the American Revolutionary War and the Assassins after he witnessed his friends being buried alive by Templars. Thanks to his expertise with weaponry, he could protect his team with deadly efficiency. ---- * AnAxeToGrind: Two of his secondary weapons. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard: Can be given one. ** BadassCape: Gets a nice, fur-lined one in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit that is similar to that of the Count from [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]]. ** BadassLongcoat: Always dressed in one of these, except for the above outfit, "the Minuteman", where he exchanges it for a cape. * BayonetYa: His hunting rifle is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters. * FriendlySniper * DownloadableContent * {{Expy}}: Visually, he looks a lot like a certain [[RedDeadRedemption Mr. Marston]]. Or [[DollarsTrilogy The Man With No Name]], if you will. His name and backstory are close to another wide-brimmed-hat-wearing sharpshooter named [[{{Videogame/Blood}} Caleb]]... * KnifeNut: Two of his secondary weapons. * LaResistance: Fights in the Revolutionary army. Referenced in his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit, which is the outfit of a minuteman. * NiceHat: Like many of the other characters, he has a wide variety of hats. * PistolWhipping: His default rifle kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Joined the Assassins and the American Revolutionaries against the Templars after they killed his friends. !!The Strong Man (Nukilik) An Inuit Chieftain, Nukilik is dedicated to the safety of his people, willing to travel countless miles to aid them. Despite his large stature, he demonstrates both strength and agility, making him an especially large threat at close range. ---- * {{Badass}} ** BadassBeard ** BadassNative: An Inuit Chieftain. * BayonetYa: His muskets have them, including one that is a dagger tied to the rifle rather then an actual bayonet. * BladeOnAStick: He wields a harpoon as his specialty weapon. * BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins * FriendlySniper: Two of his secondary weapons. * GondorCallsForAid: When he learned of the plight faced by his kin who lived in areas affected by the Revolutionary War, he went out of his way to journey all the way over there and help them out, aiding the Revolutionaries in the process. * HistoricalFiction: Erudito's hacked version of his biography rather frighteningly suggests that Nukilik and his backstory - a cliché underdog story, according to him - were completely fabricated by the Templars and that he never even existed during the period of the American Revolution. * KnifeNut: Two of his alternate weapons. * LightningBruiser: Described as one. * NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His title is the only one that singles out and defines one trait:[[{{Badass}} his strength]]. * NemeanSkinning: Like the Bear, his ''Champion's Pack'' outfit has him donning the skin of a polar bear. * NiceHat: Many. * OddNameOut: Most of the titles for the multiplayer persona encompass their overall character. Nukilik, on the other hand, is a leader, journeyman, and warrior, but his title is the very straightforward and specific "Strong Man". * OnlyOneName [[/folder]] [[Characters/AssassinsCreedIIIMultiplayerCharacters Multiplayer Characters]]
