[[WMG: V was an [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin]]]]
a member of the Brotherhood of Assassins]]]]
A list of the evidence.
*His missions are assassinating high-ranking members of an oppressive government.
* The Norsefire Administration is part of the Templar Order, and Adam Sutler is a Grand Master. All their talk about "unity" and "faith" sounds like medieval and Renaissance Templar rhetoric. "We need to make them remember....Why!They!Need!Us!" likewise.
*He uses stealth and throwing knives as part of his arsenal.
*His hideout is underground and it stores many cultural treasures. Several Assassin's Creed games show the Assassins as being big on learning and artistic freedom.
*He trains Evey to be his successor by making her understand his interpretation of the Creed.
*Part of his objective is to convince the populace to overthrow their Templar masters, echoing Ezio Auditore's belief in the common man.

The similarity via the verbose vocabulary, makes it very obvious....verily!

* At least in a meta-sense, Valerie was the original V. Wasn't V supposed to be a doll like transgender hero in the early stages? That fell through due to executive meddling. V as we know him was passed on the legacy from V. Evey took up the mantel by V putting her through what he did, i.e. recreating Valerie handing off the mantel to her in a way. There is a parallel universe where V is Valerie where the executives did not meddle.

**If there's a source for that beyond this TV Tropes page, that'd be fantastic. If there isn't, V is only not Evey's dad, Charlie's aunt or Whistler's mother.

to:

* Another trans troper. Valerie thought they were a lesbian, and they were assigned female at birth so they were raised as a woman. Then they realized they're actually a straight trans man. That makes the most sense.

* Better yet, V's real identity is [[CodeGeass Lelouch Vi Britannia]]. Notice the V in the middle.....

** Unless the Fawkes mask is his face ''symbolically'', similar to Rorschach considering his superhero/vigilante persona to be his true identity rather than Walter Kovacs and the mask he wears his face to the point that, when unmasked, he starts screaming at the officers to give back his face.

to:

* This can't be, as V wouldn't have had any access to the ridiculous surgery capable of making his face look that plastic (just to start) and before someone he kills dies (this troper can't remember who it was, but they're mentioned above somewhere) they request to see his face again and he takes off the mask. Not the mention any of the other times he takes the mask off.

** Doesn't he? V destroys his cell using only gardening utensils and decoration. Even MacGyver would have trouble pulling that off. Using piles of dirt and strategically placed candles for it seems just like the kind of thing a mage could pull off...

to:

** Nothing in particular, it's just that gay men supposedly make up a disproportionate number of musical theatre aficionados, so it seems like an appropriate guess. Claiming that V's personality type means he must be gay is inaccurate, but it's just meant facetiously... also, you're probably not as WickedCultured as V if you don't commit acts of terrorism and then write musical numbers about it, though (don't take this as a recommendation).

* I wrote this, and in retrospect, there are some problem with this theory. One problem comes from how Norsefire's elites did not recognize V, dispatching the Finger to find out who V was even after seeing and hearing V's body language and voice. If V were a former Norsefire elite, party members such as Prothero and Lilliman should recognize something of V when they came into contact. Second, if you have a high ranking political prisoner, and you decide to [[spoiler: use them as a test subject in a horrific medical experiment]], the last thing you want to do is give them something dangerous like gardening tools or fertilizer. Even if V didn't know how to [[spoiler: use the fertilizer to escape]], attacking guards and tunneling out both seemed like viable options with the tools. This could be an example of Prothero picking up the VillainBall, but it seems reckless compared to everything else Norsefire did ( such as conquering England, maintaining order after nuclear war, and treating V as a serious threat).

to:

* This and "V is a former Norsefire supporter, or at least someone who believed in a strong government and the supremacy of law" are even better theories than [[Tropers/TitoMosquito my]] "V was a political prisoner" theory. I can also accept those two as my headcanon.



[[WMG: V's real name begins with a "V" and/or is related to the number 5.]]

We know that Adam Sutler had initially been a member of the Conservative Party (accoring to V disguised as Rookwood). This seems logical because, according to Valerie's flashback, he was responsible for closing the Tube when he was Undersecretary for Defence (ie. a minor member of the government). Clearly this can't be a Norsefire government because he founded that party.
