!The Hidden Ones

[[folder:In General]]
[[quoteright:153:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hiddenones.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:153:We sharpen our blades... And pull what hope is left from this foul earth.]]
-->'''Bayek:''' "Now our enemies are hidden behind crowns, working in the shadows of Kings and Queens. Who are the ones working in the shadows for the people? We are."

The original form of the Assassins' Brotherhood. For more details of its incarnations through the ages, see [[Characters/AssassinsCreedTheAssassins here]].
----
* BenevolentConspiracy: As the quote above shows, their purpose was to counteract the evil conspiracy formed by the Order of Ancients.
* {{Fingore}}: Initiates willingly cut off their ring finger in order to better use the Hidden Blade as well as a sign of loyalty to Bayek, though he's personally uncomfortable about the latter.
* GoodCounterpart: Of the Order of the Ancients, working to help the common people.
* GreaterScopeParagon: As co-founder of the Hidden Ones with Aya, many of Bayek's traditions such as the Leap of Faith and using a white object (a feather up until after Altair's time) to sop up the blood of targets were taken up by later Assassins.
* LaResistance: Originally formed from various people resisting Ptolemy's regime.
* SkeletonMotif: The Assassin symbol is indeed derived from the underside of an eagle skull, in particular [[spoiler:the one on Khemu's pendant, when Bayek finally discarded it.]]
* PrecursorHeroes: The first organized incarnation of the Assassin Brotherhood.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Bayek & Senu]]
!!Bayek of Siwa
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_bayek_render_1.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Abubakar Salim

->''"You may not be a king, Bayek. But history follows you."''

The last of the Medjay, Bayek of Siwa fights against the mysterious Order of the Ancients to protect Egypt.
----
* ActionDad: Father of a young boy and a ExperiencedProtagonist at the start of the game. Sadly, his son dies early and he spends the rest of the story seeking to avenge him.
* BadassBaritone: Speaks with a deep, commanding voice.
* BaldOfAwesome: He shaves his hair. According to a conversation with Esio, a Roman kid in Cyrene, it's because he doesn't want to wash it.
* BattleCouple: He and Aya fight alongside one another on some missions, and they happen to be married.
* BeardOfSorrow: At the beginning of the game he wears a long beard and his hair is grown out, [[spoiler:likely as a result of his son's death.]]
* BerserkButton: The death of his son, or harming children in general.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Wields a Hidden Blade on his left arm, that in fact was the very same one used by [[Characters/AssassinsCreedHistoricalAssassins Darius]] to kill King Xerxes I of Persia.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Bayek is characterized as deeply religious unlike other Assassins, who were agnostic or atheistic. His departure words to his targets has him say that the afterlife waits them instead of "rest in peace" like Ezio did. Also, while all Assassins would form families themselves later in their lives (a given, since they'd need to have descendants), Bayek is already a father at the start of the story.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: [[spoiler:After he founds the Hidden One brotherhood, his story's importance shifts to the relative background, with more importance placed upon Aya's transformation into Amunet and the heightened animosity toward Egyptian and Roman politics.]]
* DualWielding: Bayek can equip twin sets of swords for quick short ranged attacks.
* ExperiencedProtagonist: Unlike earlier Assassins who happened to be in their teens and early 20s starting out, Bayek is already an accomplished warrior in his mid-30s.
* FamedInStory: By the third act, Bayek of Siwa has started gaining a reputation around Egypt, as he learns when he runs into Tahira.
* {{Fingore}}: Bayek loses his left ring finger during a struggle with Eudoros in which the Hidden Blade accidentally triggers and slices it off, later forcing him to cauterize the wound. This likely is what led to the ritual finger-severing for a millennium.
* FriendToAllChildren: Due to the loss of his son, Bayek has a soft spot for all children. This comes up several times through the game. In the epilogue, he takes the time after an assassination to escort one of the kids he freed back home personally, as the boy is too afraid to go on his own. It is also part of his motivation to form the Brotherhood.
--> ''"And I promise for all the sons of Egypt I will be the father I was not that day in Siwa."''
* GoodIsOldFashioned: The Medjay are considered little more than an inconvenient relic by Egypt at large, but Bayek is a good guy.
* GroinAttack: He's the target of a darkly funny example when the grieving widow of one of the Ancients he killed suddenly shows up out of nowhere and knees him in the balls while he was talking to someone else.
* HappilyMarried: To his wife, Aya, though it's been slightly strained by her loyalty to Cleopatra.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Bayek is seen wielding the ''khopesh'' (Pictured to the right), ''shotel'', and Roman ''spatha''.
* HeroicNeutral: While Bayek does care about other people elsewhere, his primary concern is with keeping Egypt safe from internal and domestic threats. It's Aya who actually has the idea to spread the Hidden Ones throughout the world.
* HumanNotepad: Has the names of his targets tattooed on his right arm. Painfully removed one by scrarring himself with the tip of a arrow.
* HyperspaceArsenal: While he can have a maximum of [[WalkingArmory two melee weapons, two bows, about fifty arrows and a handful of support items]] ready at all times, there's no limit to how many weapons, items and crafting components Bayek can carry as loot, with no explanation given where he puts all that stuff. This explicitly includes all his mounts. Yes, even the three war chariots.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In the cinematic trailer he kills a mace-wielding soldier about to kill him by [[ImpromptuTracheotomy shooting him in the throat]] with an arrow fired from his bow, using his feet. In the game proper, he can headshot enemies with a bow in midair, which actually unlocks an achievement ''and'' has a special skill dedicated to it that slows down time while he's aiming in free-fall.
* LegendaryWeapon: Bayek's Hidden Blade is the one used to assassinate Xerxes four centuries prior. "Legendary" is also the name of the highest of three equipment tiers, most of which are weapons, so in the late game he'll probably run around with one or two dozen legendary weapons in his HyperspaceArsenal.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Bayek may be having supernatural experiences with the gods and his son (or First Civilization given the game's premise) [[SanitySlippage or he may just be going crazy due to grief]] over the OffingTheOffspring incident.
* MeaningfulName: Bayek is a play on the hieroglyphic word for "falcon" or "vulture".
* MultiMeleeMaster: Bayek can master multiple types of weapons, including [[AnAxeToGrind axes]], [[BladeOnAStick polearms]], [[DropTheHammer hammers]], [[DualWielding dual blades]], [[GoodOldFisticuffs his fists]], [[SimpleStaff staves]], and a SwordAndShield.
* NiceGuy: He's a genuinely kind, noble, good-hearted man, who takes his role as protector of Egypt seriously. He also has a wry sense of humour and a large soft spot in caring for the children in need he comes across. The only time he ever truly raises his voice is when confronting the utterly monstrous Order of Ancients and their supporters.
* OffingTheOffspring: A completely tragic variant since he accidentally kills Khemu when one of the Ancients dodges his knife and drives it into his son's chest.
* OneManArmy: He wipes out entire enemy camps by himself throughout the game, and that's just for starters.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: His son Khemu was killed by the Order of the Ancients.
* RealMenLoveJesus:
** Bayek is very devout in his faith in the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian pantheon]] and keeps dropping references to Egypt's idea of the afterlife and beyond, and sees his quest as a means [[spoiler:to help his son reach the "field of reeds", the heaven-like afterlife]]. This also puts him in a stark contrast to previous games' protagonists, who tended to be atheistic such as Altair and Arno.
** Several of his quests involve facing people who are performing blasphemy (Making the holy crocodiles of Sobek sick, or killing sacred Crocodiles in Krocodilopolis to use their mummies for smuggling). In a similarity to the other more agnostic or atheist protagonists, Bayek also regularly faces and opposes priests who exploit religion for their own gain. The main difference is that Bayek sees their actions not just as an injustice, but as an insult to his faith.
* ReligiousBruiser: In stark contrast to {{player character}}s in other games released before ''Origins'', Bayek is very devout when it comes to [[Myth/EgyptianMythology his religion]].
* {{Revenge}}: Desires revenge against the Order of the Ancients for the death of his son about a year before the game's events.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: Not only can Bayek swim underwater, but fight underwater as well.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:He and Aya were ultimately buried next to each other as per Egyptian custom once they died.]]
* TragicKeepsake: The Eagle Skull pendant he wears belonged to Khemu. [[spoiler:He discards it at the end, as a show of how he moved on. Its impression in the sand would become the Assassin Brotherhood's logo]].
* TrashTalk: Does occasionally deal in trash talk while fighting bosses.
* WalkingArmory: Bayek is a good example of this, after Arno and the Frye twins downplayed this trope. In addition to his Hidden Blade and other tools, he goes into battle with 2 weapons load-outs, a shield and 2 bows, along with assortments of darts, grenades, and other items.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He hates snakes and says this word for word during the "Curse of Wadjet" quest.
* WouldHitAGirl: Story-wise he kills Khaliset and Berenike, and in the sidequests that have him facing women in combat, he shows no hesitation at all.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: His unarmed Overpower move is a dropkick.

!!Senu

A female Bonelli's Eagle that serves as Bayek's partner.
----
* ActionPet: With an upgrade, she can attack and stun targets when controlled, and will do so on her own randomly during combat to help Bayek. She will also attack wildlife when Bayek is hunting, and she's fully capable of taking out animals many times her size.
* AnimalEyeSpy: Bayek can see through Senu's eyes. It's clarified that he can see through many animals' eyes, but Senu is the one he uses the most regularly and strongly.
* BigDamnHeroes: When Bayek is buried to his neck in sand and left for dead by the Scarab, Senu attacks a nearby horse so that it'll pull him out.
* NobleBirdOfPrey: Senu is evidently the origin of the Assassin Brotherhood's eagle fixation and namesake of the later Assassins' Eagle Vision, aiding Bayek in his missions.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Aya]]
!!Aya
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_aya.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Alix Wilton Regan

-> ''"You and I are pledged to violence, now and always."''

Bayek's wife and a fellow Assassin, who is deeply loyal to Cleopatra. While she was trained alongside Bayek, she is not a Medjay.
----

* AmicableExes: [[spoiler:They become this at the end of ''Origins'', their commitment to the Creed leads to their marriage ending, over the grief of their lost child, and Aya leaves to establish Assassin bureaus across the Mediterranean]].
* AncientTomb: [[spoiler:Her tomb was supposedly located in the Basilica di San Marco in Venice, Italy. This is not her real tomb as it turns out she was buried next to Bayek in Egypt]].
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: She is the player character in various segments, including Naval missions.
* BattleCouple: She and Bayek fight alongside one another on some missions, and they happen to be married.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: She is [[spoiler:Amunet, first introduced in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'']].
* {{Deuteragonist}}: She is playable for a few missions and is the one to kill [[spoiler:both Septimius and Caesar]]. Furthermore, while Bayek comes up with the idea for the Brotherhood, [[spoiler:he seems intent to keep to Egypt alone, with Aya/Amunet being the one to take the fight against tyranny to Rome and gain more likeminded allies, and ultimately go global]].
* DualWielding: During segments when you control her, she is restricted to a set of twin blades.
* {{Expy}}: Her facial design and hairstyle make her look a lot like Sitara from ''VideoGame/WatchDogs2''
* {{Fingore}}: [[spoiler:In the ending, it's shown that she sliced off her ring finger, likely to accommodate her Hidden Blade.]]
* {{Foil}}: [[spoiler:While Bayek is intent on gaining vengeance for Khemu's death so as to allow him to ascend to the Field of Reeds and escape the Duat, Aya's concerns are more focused on the here-and-now. While she does care about burial customs and has some semblance of religious nature, she is more concerned with the destruction of the Order of the Ancients, rather than single-mindedly seeking to bring peace to Khemu. This is best shown when, in their final conversation, she tells [[ReligiousBruiser Bayek]] "the gods are dead."]]
* GoodIsNotNice: During one quest, Aya and Bayek are investigating who has poisoned an Apis bull. As Bayek returns from investigating, Aya is talking with the temple maidens, and informs them that she will kill whoever did it. Since they are the guilty party, they immediately become ''very'' afraid.
* HappilyMarried: To Bayek at the start of the game, it gets tested in the course of the game.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She throws herself fully behind Cleopatra, at first, even when she's shown to be callous and cruel from the offset, and Bayek is less taken with her. Surprise, Cleopatra screws the pair of them over.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:She killed Cleopatra with a snake]].
* InTheHood: [[spoiler:Wears [[MythologyGag a white hooded cloak]] she takes from a member of the Senate when going to infiltrate the Curio and assassinate Caesar. Afterwards, she incorporates the hood into her standard outfit as Amunet.]]
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: As Amunet, famed Assassin of Cleopatra, killing her former friend with the very symbol of the Order she sided with, instead of remaining loyal to Aya and Bayek, positively stinks of this.]]
* LegendaryInTheSequel: [[spoiler:She will become Amunet and part of the Assassins Hall of Fame, by Ezio's time]].
* LoveCannotOvercome: [[spoiler:Her commitment to fighting the Order of Ancients runs contrary to Bayek's concern solely for the condition of Khemu's soul. They also both admit that they are only going through the motions, but that seeing the other only brings back painful memories of Khemu's death.]]
* MasterOfNone: During the moments where you control her in the main game, upgrades made as Bayek do not carry over to Aya, which along with her being restricted to a set of Dual Swords means that she is objectively weaker gameplay-wise.
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she renames herself Amunet "the Hidden One". Amunet is also the Egyptian goddess of air and invisibility. The name means "the female hidden one" or "one who is hidden"]].
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:She sacrifices her name and identity as Aya in exchange for Amunet, even stating that she's symbolically killed Aya.]]
* MixedAncestry: Half-Greek, half-Egyptian.
* OriginStory: [[spoiler:Aside from the origin of the Assassins, ''Origins'' shows the origin for [[LegendaryInTheSequel Amunet]], the killer of Cleopatra.]]
* StealthHiBye: Pulls a textbook example as her very last on-screen action during the epilogue.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Whereas her husband never deviates from his friendly, helpful and amicable behavior, Aya becomes colder and colder the farther the story progresses. In the end she's icy and merciless who, by her own admission, ditched all love and affection in her life to devote herself completely to her new role as a shadowy killer in service to the greater good.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: As she tells Bayek:
--> '''Aya''': ''"To protect Egypt, I would kill a thousand priests."''
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:With Cleopatra, since she is her devoted supporter at the start of the game, but later on, Aya as Amunet assassinates her former friend]].
* WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Despite being ordered by Cleopatra to assassinate Ptolemy if she runs into him during the Battle of the Nile, she finds herself unable to do so even when she has him dead to rights as he's escaping on a boat. Of course, at that moment Aya's dilemma between duty and morality is solved when two crocodiles attack his escape boat and kill him. That said, she's still visibly horrified by the whole thing.]]

[[folder:Marcus Junius Brutus]]
!! UsefulNotes/MarcusJuniusBrutus

A Roman Senator and Assassin in the first century BCE, Brutus was assigned to plan the assassination of Consul UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar, who was being manipulated by the Templars. Plagued by visions of a cavern throughout his life, he discovered them beneath Rome, which was the location of Juno's Temple. Originally a lore character in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'' as part of the Lairs of Romulus, he becomes a supporting character in ''Origins''.
----
* TheCameo: He appears very briefly in the ending of ''Origins''.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Is given visions of the [[WhileRomeBurns Burning of Rome]] after discovering the Colosseum Vault.
* DrivenToSuicide: He killed himself after the Assassins were forced to leave Rome and his army was defeated. His fellow Assassins tried to use The Shroud to bring him back to life, but all it did was reanimate his body for a few minutes, with him saying nothing, before dying again.
* GroinAttack: [[spoiler:As the one to land the final blow on Caesar, he stabs him in what seems like the nether regions.]]
* HistoricalHeroUpgrade:
** ''Brotherhood'' and the wider lore wholeheartedly embrace the HollywoodHistory notion that Brutus killed Caesar to preserve the Roman Republic and prevent the Empire embracing the GoodRepublicEvilEmpire context. In truth, the Roman Republic was a corrupt oligarchy that brutally murdered reformers, Brutus himself as per Creator/{{Cicero}} was a corrupt LoanShark who extorted high interest loans from the poor and sent goons to torture them to make them pay up, and his assassination and betrayal of Caesar happened not because he was becoming a King but because his reforms, such as redistributing public land to veterans and other initiatives, were taking effect and becoming permanent.
** In the finale, [[spoiler:Brutus tells Caesar that he wants to establish a Rome of peace, justice, and land for the people. "Land for the people" was in fact the policies of Caesar and his ''populare'' faction, which Brutus and his cohorts wholeheartedly opposed]].
* KnifeNut: The Dagger of Brutus, which he used to kill Caesar and was later recovered by Ezio Auditore.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He is horrified after killing Caesar, who had only stopped resisting the attack when he saw Brutus approaching. His shame caused him to hide away his armor and weapon in a secret vault under Rome.
* UnevenHybrid: The fact that he could interact with First Civilization technology indicates that he had traces of First Civilization DNA.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pasherenptah]]
!!Pasherenptah
High Priest of Memphis, originally one of Cleopatra and Apollodorus' allies. Bayek's actions saves his wife and Memphis which earns Bayek his loyalty.
----

* HighPriest: He's a priest of Ptah and High Priest of Memphis.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasherienptah_III Based on Pasherienptah III]], the high priest of Memphis from 76 -- 41 BCE.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Phanos the Younger]]
!!Phanos the Younger
Aya's Greek cousin. A poet who writes plays denouncing Ptolemy's regime.
----

* HeroSecretService: Introduced as keeping Aya in hiding from the Phylakes and acting as her liaison to Bayek.
* LifeOfTheParty: His parties are clearly quite the thing, which even impress Bayek.
* WarriorPoet: Literally a poet, and he rushes along with Bayek to fight guards trying to stop his play.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Phoxidas]]
!!Phoxidas
A mercenary captain originally hired by Aya to lead her to Pompey Magnus to seal an alliance between him and Cleopatra.
----

* AffectionateNickname: Aya eventually takes to calling him "Phox" after they've spent a couple years working and fighting alongside each other.
* BadassBeard: He wears a large beard and happens to be a fearless mercenary captain.
* BoisterousBruiser: He sure loves his sea battles and makes sure everyone knows it.
* TheCaptain: Of his ship, though he lets Aya take command as he's impressed by how she's mastered sailing.
* HeroicSacrifice: Subverted. He volunteers to pull a YouShallNotPass on an Order fleet so [[spoiler:Bayek and Aya can get Cleopatra to Rome]] while his ships are getting hammered into submission, but he shows up again alive and well later in the game.
* InHarmsWay: Phoxidas is a wealthy man with a whole private fleet to his name who could've retired ages ago, but he continues to sail the seas and engage in pitched battles because that's where he feels most alive.
* LargeHam: His default mode of communication. ''Especially'' during naval combat.
* LovableRogue: He's a mercenary, but he's constantly impressed by and supportive of Aya.
* MadeOfIron: [[spoiler:Takes a fire arrow to the shoulder during the battle for Rome, yanks it out]] and treats it as little more than an inconvenience while he keeps on shouting orders and cussing out his enemies.
* NoIndoorVoice: Understandable for a trireme captain since the only way to relay orders to everyone back then was to shout them, but he keeps up this volume even when he's talking to someone who's standing an arm's length away.
* NonIdleRich: As mentioned above, he prefers to actively support the Assassins' cause over resting on his laurels and riches back home.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: His original motivations.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He's basically Shay Cormac's quartermaster Christopher Gist from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRogue'', only with a different accent and on the other side of the Templar-Assassin War.
* ThinkingOutLoud: He's prone to say whatever is on his mind, and doesn't really care who he is speaking to or in the presence of.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Tahira]]
A friend of Bayek back in Siwa. She has since left the oasis and is now tracking Romans who are poaching the native wildlife of Egypt.

* {{Fingore}}: She is the first to cut off her own finger as a show of loyalty to Bayek.
* ForestRanger: Fulfills the role, staying in the wild to defend the sacred wildlife from Roman hunters.
* TheLancer: Takes this role for Bayek [[spoiler:once Aya departs from Egypt]] in the ending.
[[/folder]]


!The Order of the Ancients
'''Many of these characters are [[WalkingSpoiler Walking Spoilers]] and their entries feature a lot of in-game details that are not hidden behind spoiler tags. If you have not played to the end of the game, [[Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned read at your own risk]]'''.

[[folder:In General]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f5m79k1f.jpg]]

A shadowy group of influential people that seeks to control Egypt and eventually the rest of the world. Their symbol is a serpent wearing the Double Crown of Egypt.
----
* AncientConspiracy: UpToEleven. As founders of what will become the Templar Order, the members of this organization are influential citizens in their respective societies, consisting of government officials, generals, priests, wealthy merchants and other social elite. It's also ''literally'' ancient in that the founder of the Order was the Egyptian pharoah Smenkhkare, who discovered the Isu vault Eeyoo Sekedoo Aat around 1334 BCE, and founded the Order in order to better understand the Isu, aka Those Who Came Before.
* AnimalMotifs:
** Their aliases are based around various animals, and even their death scenes tend to have the animals in question show up around them.
** The Order as a whole has an animal representing it, [[spoiler:[[SnakesAreSinister the snake]]]], contrasting the Hidden Ones/Assassin's eagle.
* CreateYourOwnHero: [[spoiler:Had they never antagonized Bayek and murdered his son, he and Aya would likely have never gone after them.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Their attire while in disguise is black in color, and they're antagonists.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: The members come from a variety of cultures, including Greeks and ethnic Egyptians. [[spoiler:After the true vastness of the Order is revealed, Romans as well as various peoples throughout the known world are revealed to belong to the Order as well.]]
* EvilIsPetty: In keeping with their Templar successors, they can do pretty evil and ruthless things just for the fun of it.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: When in disguise, members of the Order wear identical black Egyptian facemasks, black robes, and sandals.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Members of the Order use their political skills and wealth to maneuver themselves into the favor of powerful people everywhere in the known world. This is what allows the Order of the Ancients to survive and prosper despite the changes in political leadership. For example, once Ptolemy XIII is deposed, the surviving members of the Order curry favor with Cleopatra and Caesar by appealing to their desire to rule an empire.]]
* PredecessorVillain: They are this to the Order of the Knights Templar.
* TheManBehindTheMan: At least two of Ptolemy XIII's courtiers are members of the Order.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Two members of the Order are female, the Hyena and [[spoiler:the Crocodile.]]
* TheUnfettered: If they want something, no pretense of morality will stop them from getting it. In their debut trailer this is punctuated through multiple scenes of Order members standing amongst piles of civilian corpses.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Heron]]
!!Rudjek, The Heron

The nomarch (ancient Egyptian administration official) of Saqqara in Egypt during Ptolemy XIII's reign. He is the first of the Order killed by Bayek.
----
* CorruptBureaucrat: Rudjek is a high-ranking government official who abused his authority in the service of the Order of the Ancients. He is hated by rebels from his assigned territory, who have tried to kill him before.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes:
** After Rudjek's death, his bodyguard, Hypatos, tracks Bayek to Siwa over the course of several months to avenge Rudjek's death.
** Rudjek's wife knees Bayek in the groin and spits on him when she sees him.
** [[spoiler:Rudjek's mistress, the assistant healer Suphia, tries to kill Bayek and the Saqqara rebels by [[TheMole betraying them to Ptolemy XIII's soldiers]]. After this fails, she goes on a MotiveRant until she is killed by Namrut, the rebel leader.]]
* FatBastard: He's noticeably portly, and also a member of the Order of the Ancients.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Bayek kills him by first catching the dagger thrown at him [[HoistByHisOwnPetard through his mask]], before stabbing him in the face with it.
* KarmicDeath: Bayek kills him with a dagger of the same make as the one his son was killed with.
* StarterVillain: He's the first Order member Bayek kills.

[[folder:The Ibis]]
!!Medunamun, The Ibis

An oracle of Amun who oppresses the people of Siwa.
----
* BaldOfEvil: Has not a hair on his head, though his headdress makes him look like he bleached his hair.
* ChekhovsGun: He carries a marked sphere which he uses as a symbol of office and a weapon to bludgeon others into submission. Anyone who has played previous ''Assassin's Creed'' games will recognize and understand its importance in the story as an [[MindControlDevice Apple of Eden]].
* {{Guyliner}}: Wears black or dark blue lipstick and gold glitter on his face.
* KickTheDog:
** When people oppose him, he has his men burn their houses to the ground, with them in it, to make an example out of them.
** During his death scene, he taunts Bayek over being unable to save his son, calling him "Bayek of Nothing", which causes him to react by bludgeoning Mendunamun to death with the Apple.
* LeanAndMean: Is described as incredibly thin, but powerful despite it. And of course, he's quite mean indeed, as he's a tyrant towards the people of Siwa.
* AMillionIsAStatistic: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. When Bayek confronts him over the death of his son, Medunamun simply says that one life is nothing compared to the Order's goals of rule by "the strong and virtuous".
* IOwnThisTown: According to him, "Siwa is mine!"
* StarterVillain: The first target Bayek assassinates in-game proper as opposed to a cutscene.

[[folder:The Hippo]]
!!Eudoros, The Hippo
--> Voiced by: Vlasta Vrána

The royal scribe of Ptolemy XIII's court.
----
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:At first, Bayek believes Eudoros to be the Snake and thus the last of the Order of the Ancients. Only later, does Bayek learn that the "Snake" refers to the ''entire'' Order.]]
* FatBastard: He's portly and also an Order member.
* FamousLastWords: "The Snake? ... The Snake will never die." [[spoiler:This serves as a {{Foreshadowing}} to the actual enormity of the Order of the Ancients.]]
* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Other patrons of the bathhouse suspect he comes oftenly to ogle naked boys. Bayek can overear him say his skin condition comes from consorting with a sailor.
* IronicDeath: His alias is "the Hippo", and Bayek kills him by first attempting to drown him before stabbing him in the throat with the Hidden Blade.
* PublicBathhouseScene: Eudoros is a frequent patron of the public bathhouse. This is where Bayek kills him.
* RedRightHand: He has a skin condition that leaves him covered in scars and boils.
* {{Synchronization}}: During his death cutscene, he falls upon Bayek stabbing the cobra between them with his Hidden Blade.

[[folder:The Scarab]]
!!Taharqa, The Scarab
--> Voiced by: Tristan D. Lalla

An architect living in Sais and the steward of Letopolis.
----
* BaldOfEvil: A bald villain.
* DirtyBusiness: How he considers the Order.
-->'''Taharqa:''' ''There are things I regret! We all labor for higher powers, we are all in thrall to greater forces.'' There is no escape.
* TheDreaded: The Scarab is greatly feared in the Nile Delta region. Talking about him is almost like asking for a painful death.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He is loved and deeply respected by his family, especially by his wife Meheret and his son Kawab. [[spoiler:This has not stopped him from torturing his father-in-law, Ghupa, when he started to [[HeKnowsTooMuch ask too many questions]].]]
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:After allying with Bayek to kill a band of raiders attacking the Letopolis ruins, Taharqa drugs Bayek and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness leaves him to die, buried up to his neck in the desert sand]].]]
* GlorySeeker: He desperately wants to be remembered long after he dies and wants Letopolis to be his everlasting legacy.
* ManOfTheCity: He sees himself as a builder of cities and a bringer of waters.
* {{Sadist}}: One of the Scarab's favored execution methods is burying people up to their necks in sand and leaving them to die. One scene has him dropping and spilling a cup of water in front of one such victim. He also has a habit of subjecting his victims to ColdBloodedTorture and ripping out their tongues with hot pokers.
* ScaryBlackMan: Taharqa is black, and is also a pretty scary character with his tendencies for torture and leaving people buried by their necks in desert sand to die of exposure.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He is well-known and respected in his public identity as an architect.
* VisionaryVillain: His dream is to restore the ruins of Letopolis into a functional city. He encourages people to live there by providing benefits in exchange for building houses for the city.
* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:In ''The Hidden Ones'' DLC, a sidequest has Bayek being confronted by an older Kawab, who wants revenge for Bayek killing his father. Fortunately, Bayek manages to convince Kawab to give up on revenge, and even persuades him to join the Hidden Ones.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Hyena]]
!!Khaliset, The Hyena
--> Voiced by: Mouna Traoré

An explorer and an amateur scholar. She also keeps a trained pack of hyenas.
----
* AdventurerArchaeologist: When Bayek encountered her, Khaliset was attempting to decipher symbols on an artifact made by "Those Who Came Before", with which she hoped to resurrect her daughter Eshe. She is the only person in this story to know about the First Civilization and she may have been one of the first humans to rediscover their existence after their passing from the world.
* AlasPoorVillain: She is the only member of the Order whom Bayek shows sympathy for because he too knows what it's like to lose a child and, during her death scene, she wonders if she'll even see her daughter, Eshe, after her death.
* ArcherArchetype: She wields a bow and appears to have a very serious demeanor.
* ArrowsOnFire: Fires flaming arrows during her battle with Bayek.
* TheBeastmaster: She has trained a number of hyenas that will follow her commands. After Khaliset dies, it is hinted that [[{{Irony}} these same hyenas will feast on her corpse]].
* BodyPaint: Her face is covered in white markings.
* DarkActionGirl: Not only is she a woman working alongside the mostly male-dominated Order of Ancients, but she's one of the few members of the group that gets a prolonged boss fight instead of just being a glorified mook.
* DeathCryEcho: "I just want my daughter back... PLEASE!?"
* DraggedOffToHell: At the end of her death scene, hyenas drag her by her feet into the Duat.
* FlunkyBoss: She sends her hyenas against Bayek during their battle.
* GetBackHereBoss: She uses her bow, smoke bombs, traps and her pet hyenas to keep Bayek at a distance while fighting him. Khaliset also takes advantage of the environs of the Pyramid of Khufu to restrict Bayek's movements.
* HumanSacrifice: She has kidnapped and sacrificed several people in rituals meant to resurrect her daughter.
* {{Necromantic}}: Her entire motivation for killing people stems from a belief that she can resurrect her daughter.
* NotSoDifferent: Both she and Bayek are driven by the deaths of their children.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Her daughter died at some point prior to the game, and she works with the Order of Ancients to resurrect her.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Wears a small skull in the center of her headdress.
* TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow: Bayek tells Khaliset that the knowledge of the First Civilization is not meant for humans to know, making her efforts to resurrect her daughter futile.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Lizard]]
!!Hetepi, The Lizard
--> Voiced by: David R. Collins

A priest of Anubis at the Great Temple of Memphis and an advisor to the high priest, Pasherenptah.
----
* ClueEvidenceAndASmokingGun: This how Bayek eventually finds and kills Hetepi. [[spoiler:Bayek learns that the Apis Bull was actually poisoned by finding peach pits in the bull's dung and food supply. He then interrogates the bull's feeders, the Twin Priestesses, who tell him that they were ForcedIntoEvil because their brother, Panchrates, was kidnapped. After being rescued, Panchrates tells Bayek that his kidnappers answered to a priest with a blue scarf and a bad cough. This vital clue allows Pasherenptah to identify the culprit as Hetepi.]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: His main distinguishing trait is wearing a blue scarf and having a bad cough.
* TheFaceless: The Lizard is never shown without his mask, even during his death scene.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:During Hetepi's death scene, the first thing shown is a hieroglyphic snake, the symbol of the Order of the Ancients, and a clue that the Order is bigger than Bayek had imagined.]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: He constantly wears a full-face metal helmet in the shape of a dog's head that serves to indicate his status as a priest of Anubis. It also means that Bayek actually has to make sure that he kills the right priest and not mistake another for him.
* PoisonIsEvil: The Lizard's modus operandi. He has tainted the natron used to preserve mummies and poisoned food at the Great Temple to give miscarriages to Taimhotep, Pasherenptah's wife. [[spoiler:He also manipulated the Twin Priestesses into poisoning the Apis Bull with peach pits.]]
* SinisterMinister: He is a powerful priest of Anubis and has the trust of the high priest, Pasherenptah. Since Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife, Hetepi's acts as the Lizard were [[{{Irony}} contrary to his priestly duties]]. It is likely that Hetepi was causing unrest with poison in an effort to gain more influence in Memphis.

[[folder:The Crocodile]]
!!Berenike, The Crocodile
-->'''Voiced by:''' Colette Stevenson

The nomarch of Faiyum, the owner of the Kerkesoucha granary and a patron of the Krokodilopolis arena.
----
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: She barely remembers murdering a child and her [[LackOfEmpathy bored, apathetic expression]] towards Bayek's ranting speaks volumes about her callousness.
* CorruptBureaucrat: Like Rudjek, she is a government official who has abused her authority to fund the Order's activities, and has the Greek and Egyptian populations segregated in order to create "peace".
* EvilOldFolks: She's visibly aged despite her lack of white hair, and she's evil enough to think nothing of murdering children to make a point. She has also sent soldiers and henchmen to ransack settlements in the Faiyum region in order to recover a ledger that contained the names of many members of the Order of the Ancients.
* GladiatorGames: She is a long-time patron of gladiators, whom she frequently hires as henchmen.
* HairDecorations: Wears a flower wreath on top of her head.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: When confronted by Bayek with her crimes, this was her answer, word for word.
* LackOfEmpathy: She comes across as one of the most callous members of the Order of Ancients, truly having no care for human life. When confronted by Bayek in her death scene, Berenike wears a bored expression the entire time, doesn't remember the name of the little girl she drowned in front of her mother, and writes off the suffering of the families she's destroyed as worthless and worth it to remake Egypt without a shred of remorse.
* ManOfTheCity: According to Hotephres she considers herself the proprietor of Faiyum's culture.
* SamusIsAGirl: The Crocodile is presumed male before Berenike's identity is revealed.
* SlouchOfVillainy: When Bayek confronts her in her death scene, she's lazing against a giant white crocodile, completely content.
* TomTheDarkLord: Berenike is the Ancient Greek form of "Bernice" (which means "bearer of victory" and whose Latin form is the more familiar Veronica), and she's one of the nastiest characters in the game.
* WouldHurtAChild: She does not hesitate to drown a young girl in order to intimidate her mother. Especially noteworthy in that her own soldiers are [[EvenEvilHasStandards appalled]] by what she did, and the pair of murderers working as hired muscle for her point-blank refused to do it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Jackal]]
!!Lucius Septimius, The Jackal
--> Voiced by: Jonny Glynn

The leader of the Gabiniani, a group of soldiers exiled from Rome currently in the employ of Pharoah Ptolemy XIII.
----
* ArchEnemy: Aya seems to hold him particularly in contempt, considering it is due to the aftermath of his capture that [[spoiler:she loses her clout with Cleopatra and ultimately loses Egypt itself, on top of his involvement in the death of her son.]]
* BadassBoast: "I command armies, I control greatness!"
* BeardOfEvil: He has a full beard that covers much of his face, which is hard to see while he wears his helmet.
* BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler:With Flavius, in the final part of the game. In theory, Flavius is the one in charge, with Septimius as TheDragon, but in practice they are given equal clout, with Septimius as Aya's ArchEnemy and Flavius as Bayek's.]]
* TheBrute: He is the biggest member of the Order as well as its best fighter.
* TheCorrupter: [[spoiler:He preys on Caesar's and, by extension, Cleopatra's ambition to rule an empire to corrupt them.]]
* DefiantToTheEnd: He doesn't stop [[EvilGloating gloating]] once he starts fighting Aya, continuing to taunt her even when at death's door.
* DragonInChief: [[spoiler:After becoming Julius Caesar's [[TheDragon confidant]], Septimius planned to control the future Roman Empire through him in the Order's name. After killing Septimius, Aya easily assassinates Caesar within the Roman Senate.]]
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:After he is captured during the Siege of Alexandria, Septimius quickly becomes one of Julius Caesar's confidants, going from captive to literal right-hand man in two weeks.]]
* EpicFlail: In combat against Bayek, and later Aya, Septimius wields a spiked ball and chain [[DualWielding in tandem with a sword]]. [[spoiler:In the final battle against him, he can use two flails to levitate Aya, indicating that it is likely a Precursor weapon.]]
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:The last person fought in the story as Aya, and the last boss of the game.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: His claim that [[spoiler:Julius Caesar]] is the father of understanding is a big hint about what the Order of the Ancients will eventually become.
* FourStarBadass: He is a Roman general who once served under Pompey Magnus and a powerful fighter. [[DuelBoss He fights alone]] during his battles with Bayek and Aya.
* GoingNative: The Gabiniani were a group of Roman soldiers and mercenaries who served with Cleopatra's father, and went native in the process, assimilating into Egyptian culture and marrying local Egyptian women.
* HateSink: His arrogance and gloating make him easy to hate, resulting in his death becoming all the more satisfying.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Along with Flavius, he kills Hepzefa.]]
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: His claim to fame is being identified as the principal assassin of Pompey. He and his Gabiniani faction did indeed fight for Ptolemy XIII against Caesar and Cleopatra, but Lucius Septimus disappeared from the pages from history. He has appeared in other Roman-era fiction, such as Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw's ''Caesar and Cleopatra'' [[spoiler:where Caesar did spare him as he did in this game]].
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: In his FinalBattle, [[spoiler:he takes to DualWielding {{Epic Flail}}s that are made from some kind of material that lets him swing them around in spirals to keep others far away from him, and can even use them to levitate opponents for strikes. The overall effect is similar to the likes of [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]] with the addition of PowerGlows and PowerFloats.]]
* KickTheDog: He taunts Aya about Khemu's death during their battle.
* LargeAndInCharge: He is noticeably one of the tallest characters in the game and happens to be one of the co-leaders of the Order.
* NemeanSkinning: Septimius wears a bear pelt over his left shoulder.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler:This is how he dies and how Aya finally silences his taunts.]]

[[folder:The Scorpion]]
!!Pothinus, The Scorpion
-->'''Voiced by:''' Gerry Mendicino

The regent of Ptolemy XIII and a eunuch. He is responsible for turning Ptolemy against his sister, Cleopatra.
----
* ArcVillain: He is revealed and killed over the course of a single mission.
* EunuchsAreEvil: He's less evil than the other Order members, but is still antagonistic to Bayek, and happens to be a eunuch.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He admits that the Order's actions in Siwa went too far.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He is quite composed during his death scene.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Pothinus was indeed a real person and, in fact, it was his idea to have Pompey executed to curry Caesar's favor in the first place.
* HeelRealization: Of all the Order's members, he is the only one who apologizes to Bayek for causing his pain. Pothinus knew that there was no such thing as a perfect government where no one suffers, but decides that this did not excuse his and the Order's actions.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: After Bayek shoots Yugr Tn enough times and she falls, Pothinus gets crushed under her weight.
* NoPronunciationGuide: His elephant Yugr Tn's name is pronounced "yu-girth-uh".
* TokenGoodTeammate: He is this to the Order of the Ancients and possibly the Templar Order as well. He is the only one to admit fault in his actions despite his belief that [[WellIntentionedExtremist it was all for the greater good]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He states to Bayek as he dies that, even years ago, he had his doubts about what the Order was doing, but felt that it was best for Egypt in the end.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Lion]]
!!Flavius Metellus, The Lion

The Roman proconsul of the province of Kyrenaika and an ally of Julius Caesar.
----
* ArchEnemy: [[spoiler:When Bayek learns that Flavius was the Ancient who directed the knife that killed his son Khemu, the Medjay warrior becomes completely personally driven to end the Roman's life]].
* BeardOfEvil: He has a neatly trimmed beard and moustache.
* BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler:With Septimius, in the final part of the game. In theory, Flavius is the one in charge, with Septimius as TheDragon, but in practice they are given equal clout, with Septimius as Aya's ArchEnemy and Flavius as Bayek's.]]
* BlueBlood: His last name, Metellus, indicates that he was part of the famous Roman aristocratic family (the Metelli).
* ChekhovsGun: Unlike Medunamun, Flavius is able to use the [[MindControlDevice Apple of Eden's]] power, allowing him to [[TheCorrupter make people into mindless killers]], become invisible and use energy bolts.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: Flavius appears only a few times alongside Caesar but he's mostly a background character and never the focus of a scene. This makes the reveal that he's the one who murdered Bayek's son and the de facto BigBad of the game, all the more surprising.
* TheDreaded: It's implied that his sheer ruthlessness when it came to Khemu's death basically convinced the other Order members to let him ascend to leadership.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: For some reason he thinks that Bayek could've been persuaded to join the Order eventually, despite the fact that they (and he in particular) killed his son.
* GetItOverWith: [[spoiler:In his final moments, he dares Bayek to finish the job. Bayek actually hesitates for a moment because Flavius is, in a twisted way, his last link to his old life and his beloved son. Fortunately, Khemu himself comes to reassure his father that he is now at peace with his murderer finally dead, enabling Bayek to finish Flavius off and find a new direction in life.]]
* AGodAmI: When finally confronted by Bayek, Flavius commands him to kneel before his god.
* HatePlague: [[spoiler:Makes the inhabitants of Siwa and Kyrenica go mad using the power of the Apple, in a disturbing precursor to Al Mualim's use of the Apple on Maysaf 1,238 years later, for reasons that only seem to amount to, [[ForTheEvulz "Why not?"]]]]
* HateSink: If you thought The Crocodile was a nasty piece of work, Flavius is even worse. He has no redeeming qualities nor [[VisionaryVillain well-intentioned ambitions]], he simply does horrific things for his own amusement. An utterly sadistic and callous bastard, killing him was satisfying.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Along with Septimius, he killed Hepzefa.]]
* HiddenVillain: [[spoiler:He's the one who killed Khemu and the one Bayek is hunting down in revenge, but his identity isn't revealed until near the end of the game.]]
* IRegretNothing: [[spoiler:In contrast to [[DirtyBusiness the Scarab]] and [[TokenGoodTeammate the Scorpion]], he shows absolutely no regret for his actions, even claiming that killing Khemu was WorthIt for the power he obtained as a result.]]
* TheSociopath: Thinks nothing of [[spoiler:murdering children]] or anyone else in order to achieve his goals, is a ManipulativeBastard, has a literal god complex due to being able to use an Apple, and sees people only as pawns to be used and discarded when necessary. He's high functioning in that he can keep his impulses under control, but when Bayek confronts him he drops any and all pretenses.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: During his battle with Bayek he refers to him as "just a farmer" and refers to Egypt as just a place filled with "camel herders and shit-shovelers".
* UnevenHybrid: Going by how he can actually use the Apple, he likely has a high amount of First Civilization DNA.
* TheUnfettered: He considered killing Bayek's son a small price to pay for the chance to control both the Order of the Ancients and the future Roman Empire. In fact, he basically says he's proud of it to Bayek's face.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He is a trusted ally of Caesar when he first appears.
* WeCanRuleTogether: When Bayek asks Flavius why he was spared the day his son was killed, Flavius says that he had hoped Bayek would eventually be persuaded to join the Order of the Ancients. Given the diverse membership of the Order, Flavius wasn't kidding. On the other hand, considering that the Ancients also arranged Khemu's death -- the very reason for which Bayek has done everything he did throughout the course of the game -- Flavius did not think this through very well.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:He is directly responsible for Khemu's death, being the masked one who directed Bayek's blade into his son's chest. Once he learns this, Bayek considers Flavius his ArchEnemy.]]

* MadScientist: She is experimenting with the effects of the Apple on captured test subjects, and believes that it is a mixture of science and magic.
* MinorMajorCharacter: Although she is a member of the Order and a key ally of Flavius, Melitta is only encountered in a sidequest and her assassination does not trigger a WhiteVoidRoom conversation.

He was also fearful, like Bayek was at his age. Bayek intended to repeat the event that led to his own shedding of his fears - a first leap of faith.

!![[UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_hr_cleopatra_closeup_final.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Zora Bishop

->''"The exiled queen Cleopatra thirsts for power!"''

The last Ptolemaic Pharaoh of Egypt, and an ally of Bayek and Aya.
----
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[spoiler:After allying with Caesar, Cleopatra is overtaken by a new ambition to rule an empire. This causes her to neglect her royal duties in Egypt, enabling the Order of the Ancients to regain their foothold in Egypt and oppress its citizens once again.]]
* BalconySpeech: She gives this in a mission in Memphis:
--> '''Cleopatra''': As they rule, the gods curse our land, withholding the river's floods. But as the living goddess ascends the throne, the waters will rise again! Through me, Memphis shines as rubies set in Gold! Through me, Egypt triumphs!
* BrotherSisterIncest: Per history, she and Ptolemy were co-rulers by marriage until he usurped her.
* BrokenPedestal: Aya regards Cleopatra as a living goddess and the greatest hope for Egypt's future. [[spoiler:When she and Caesar side with the Order, this shocks Aya, who turns her back on her.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:After the Siege of Alexandria, her desire to rule an empire grows and she dismisses Bayek and Aya from her service, possibly at the advice of Flavius and Caesar's newest confidant, Septimius. Cleopatra's ambitions turn towards making her son, Caesarion, the future emperor of the new Roman Empire, causing her to neglect her royal duties and enabling the Order of the Ancients to regain its foothold in Egypt despite the earlier murders of several members. At their last meeting, Aya makes it clear to Cleopatra that their friendship is over and warns her to either be the responsible monarch Egypt needs or be killed. [[ForegoneConclusion As Amunet, Aya eventually decides on the latter]].]]
* ForegoneConclusion: According to Assassin's Creed lore, she will killed by the Assassin Amunet using a venomous asp. [[spoiler:Given that Amunet is Aya's new identity, this brings a sad ending to the friendship between two former friends.]]
* AGodAmI: As Pharaoh she's seen as a goddess, and Aya even refers to her as one. It's part of Egyptian culture, and not necessarily meant to be a good thing or a bad thing.
* HistoricalBeautyUpgrade: The game's Cleopatra goes for a rather classic, regal, and beautiful Cleopatra who looks a little like her most famous actress, Creator/ElizabethTaylor. There is debate among some historians if she was physically beautiful by Roman standards or not, but she's clearly lacking her famous large, hooked nose, as well as large eye sockets and thick neck.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Zizagged. She got this ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' with her assassination by Amunet being celebrated as an event in the Assassin Hall of Fame, as one of the great acts of {{Tyrannicide}} (ranking alongside [[TheKingslayer other Assassins who killed Kings and Conquerors]]). In truth, at the time of her death she was a popular and beloved monarch of the Egyptian people, and her defeat and conquest by UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} led to the loss of Egyptian independence, with the country becoming, quite literally, the personal property of the Roman Emperor. ''Origins'' for most of the early game paints her as a wise and capable ruler, and as a superior alternative to her brother but [[spoiler:she is also shown having dreams to subvert the Roman Republic and convert it into a monarchy with her son Caesarion as King. The latter derives mostly from xenophobic propaganda put up by Caesar's assassins and later Augustus in the run-up to her death, and historians note that while she had hopes of her son becoming recognized as a Roman citizen, the idea that she wanted to supplant the Roman Republic has little to no evidence]].
* IAmTheNoun: [[spoiler:During Cleopatra and Aya's last talk, when Aya proclaims that Apollodorus died for Egypt and for her, she states that "[She] ''is'' Egypt!"]]
* LastOfHisKind: Historically, Cleopatra was the last of the Ptolemaics, and the last of the Diadochi, i.e. the Hellenic Kingdoms set up in the wake of UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat. She reigned over the last independent Egyptian and Greek state for more than a millennium or so. [[spoiler:In her last words to Cleopatra before leaving her at the end of the game (but possibly not her last words to her period), Aya even calls her "the last of the Pharaohs."]]
* LesserOfTwoEvils: Bayek outright says she's just the better choice of two evils to Aya.
* MsFanservice: A classical depiction for Cleopatra in fiction and ''Origins'' is no exception: in her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment very first scene]], she pulls some moves on Bayek while wearing a very flattering dress with AbsoluteCleavage and VaporWear. Alas, he turns her down since he is HappilyMarried to Aya.
* PrecisionFStrike: Drops one during a particularly emotional rant when her grab for the Egyptian throne begins to spiral out of control.
--> '''Cleopatra''': I need a fucking throne!
* TheQueensLatin: Or rather, the Queen's Greek or Demotic, but she has a distinct English accent despite not being English. This might be ArtisticLicense since one of the few well-known facts about her was that she was the only known Ptolemaic who spoke the native Egyptian language fluently.
* SchmuckBait: She's introduced declaring that she'll let anyone sleep with her, on the condition that she gets to execute them afterward. Crowd chatter suggests this is ''not'' an idle threat.
* ShoutOut: The visual design of Cleopatra is quite similar to her [[http://asterixonline.info/wp-content/uploads/covers/06.jpg appearance]] in the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and Cleopatra'' album.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler:In her last meeting with Aya, Cleopatra tries to reassert her authority as queen over her former friend, only to be rebuked for her selfish actions which nearly led Egypt to ruin once more. Furious, Cleopatra [[TooDumbToLive tries to slap Aya]], only to be [[{{Foreshadowing}} stopped by her wrist while releasing her Hidden Blade]].]]
* ToThePain: When she learns about the twin priestesses' poisoning of the sacred bull, she threatens to have them [[CruelAndUnusualDeath boiled alive in a bronze bull]] before Bayek and Aya vouch that they were being coerced by [[spoiler:Hetepi, one of the priests of Anubis and a member of the Order of the Ancients]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:After Ptolemy XIII's death, the Order of the Ancients switch their allegiance to Caesar and Cleopatra, putting themselves into favorable positions by [[ManipulativeBastard appealing to their ambition to create an empire]].]]
* TheVamp: How Cleopatra is presented as, she is shown as a seductress who uses her body to seduce and corrupt men, like Caesar, and even tries to put the moves on Bayek when she first meets him. Loading screens even note she was a sexual predator or worse. [[spoiler:In the finale of the game after killing Caesar, Aya calls her "the dead tyrant's whore" to her face, in front of her own child.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether: Cleopatra states this.
--> '''Cleopatra''': Together, we can do more than [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat Alexander]] did.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:After serving Cleopatra for five years, Aya makes clear her disappointment towards her former leader and friend at their last meeting. Aya insinuates that their previous friendship and Cleopatra's child Caesarion are all that's stopping her from murdering the queen right away. She then warns Cleopatra to either be a responsible monarch for Egypt or be killed. This is taken to its logical conclusion when players realize that [[ForegoneConclusion as Amunet, Aya ended up killing Cleopatra for that very reason with a poisonous asp]].]]

!!Ptolemy XIII Theos Philopator
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_hr_ptolemy_final_closeup_v01.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Jamie Mayers

The younger brother of Cleopatra, he wishes to become the sole ruler of Egypt.
----
* BrotherSisterIncest: Per history, he and Cleopatra were co-rulers by marriage until he usurped her.
* BullyingADragon: When Cleo makes herself known to Caesar, Ptolemy tries threatening him. Caesar doesn't seem even remotely bothered by it, but it still nukes any chance the kid had of maintaining an alliance.
* TheCaligula: Well he precedes his trope-sake as it were by a century, but the Boy King is a crazy puppet king who threatens to murder every last Roman in Egypt.
* ExitPursuedByABear: [[spoiler:While attempting to escape on a boat, Ptolemy is attacked and killed by two crocodiles.]]
* {{Expy}}: His voice actor sounds a lot like Creator/JackGleeson's [[Series/GameOfThrones Joffrey]], and the trailer describes him as "the boy king".
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: He was a real-life figure.
* SmugSnake: He thinks that as Pharaoh that he has the power to do as he pleases, when he's nothing more than a PuppetKing to the Order. When he tries to negotiate with and later threaten Caesar, Ptolemy doesn't realise that he was out of his debt.
--> '''Cleopatra''': Enough of the big words, little brother.
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:The player never fights him, and he ends up getting killed by crocodiles in a cutscene.]]
* UnwittingPawn: The Order of the Ancients controls affairs within Egypt through Ptolemy XIII. Two of his closest courtiers are members of the Order.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Apollodorus the Sicilian]]
!!Apollodorus the Sicilian
-->'''Voiced by:''' Gerald Kyd

The Greco-Sicilian bodyguard and friend of Cleopatra.
----
* TheBigGuy: He is Cleopatra's bodyguard and is noticeably one of the tallest characters in the game.
* BladeOnAStick: He favors a spear while in combat.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Apollodorus really was a loyal friend and follower to Cleopatra, though after he helped Cleopatra reach Caesar he disappeared from history.
* MoralityChain: He is this to Cleopatra, gently reminding her of her duties and promises to the people of Egypt. [[spoiler:Flavius and Septimius likely arranged his death in order to gain greater influence over the queen. After his death, Cleopatra's FaceHeelTurn becomes inevitable. Apollodorus was also one of Bayek and Aya's staunchest allies in the Egyptian court, making his death one of their biggest setbacks in changing Egypt for the better.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: He's completely loyal to Cleopatra, but doesn't always agree with what she does.
* PurpleIsPowerful: His outfit has purple and he happens to be a skilled warrior.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He dies near the end of the game due to getting ambushed by Roman soldiers, but not before telling Bayek and Aya about Flavius and Septimius heading to Siwa.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Phylakes]]

Elite agents for the Pharaohs who act as bounty hunters, hunting down Bayek when he sets off alarms.
----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Beating them individually usually nets you an awesome weapon or shield. Beating them all gives you access to their family's heirloom chest which contains... an outfit that looks cool but doesn't do anything otherwise.
* BonusBoss: They're extremely powerful opponents that roam certain parts of the world. The "weakest" is level 20 (but can wreck you in seconds even at level 30+ if you underestimate him) while the rest goes up all the way to the maximum level of 40. Their presence actually triggers a warning siren and a text message if you get within 100 meters of one. You can avoid the Phylakes if you prefer, but it's recommended to get rid of them ASAP because they drop some of the best items in the game and tend to join battles you're involved in out of nowhere in the worst possible moments as long as they're around.
* BountyHunter: Their profession.
* GiantMook: They're noticeably taller than Bayek.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Those ten guys are actually brothers, and even their sole sister was a peerless warrior before she decided to retire.
* KungFuProofMook: They have so much health that they can't be killed outright via Hidden Blade assassination. Depending on your blade upgrade level, it'll take off 60-70% of their health bar, so stabbing them in the back is still the best way to introduce yourself. Other assassin gadgets (smoke bombs in particular) work just fine as well and can turn an otherwise very difficult fight into a CurbstompBattle in your favor.
* ScreamingWarrior: Most of them will engage combat by yelling at the top of their lungs while charging you.
* ThickerThanWater: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Their sister doesn't really give a shit that you killed her ten brothers once you track her down and break the news to her. She outright says that the Phylakes had no honor, and gives you their family heirloom after you kill a bunch of crocodiles for her.
* VillainHasAPoint: As the first of their number that Bayek fights states, he and Aya ''are'' murderers, and the phylakes are just trying to enforce the law. [[RealityEnsues What right do even the Medjay have to be above the law?]]

!Roman Republic

[[folder:Julius Caesar]]
!![[UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_hr_ceasar_close_final.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Michael Nardone

->''"Caesar. The legendary tactician with the might of Rome at his back. His true motives are unclear."''

A general of the Roman Republic and eventual ally of Cleopatra.
----
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[spoiler:Harboring desires to become an emperor himself, Caesar becomes susceptible to Septimius' flattery, persuasion and offer of aid in the event the Senate refuses acknowledge his self-proclaimed ascension.]]
--> '''Caesar''': In the end, it is impossible not to become what others believe you are.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** At one point in the game, Caesar blurts out "The die is cast" when [[spoiler:he sees the Pharos of Alexandria lit]]. This is in fact a much debated BlindIdiotTranslation of "Alea iacta est" which is in turn a mistranslation of the original phrase Caesar spoke in Greek. What he really did say, is closer to "Let's roll the dice" i.e. let's [[IndyPloy take a risk and see what happens]] rather than we have crossed a threshold where NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** In one of the optional conversations you can hear between Caesar and Cleopatra, the former describes his hatred for Creator/{{Catullus}} and expresses contempt for poets and artists. The real Caesar was in fact a cultured man, who especially loved Greek drama, especially Menander ("let's roll the dice" was a CatchPhrase from his plays).
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: In one of the cutscenes he's shown as a formidable combatant and swordsman who latches a Jon Snow-esque killcount. [[spoiler:Unfortunately he becomes a cutscene boss in the finale]].
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:As it turns out, ''he'' is the "father of understanding" the Templars invoke in their oath for guidance, though he's also shown as a clueless puppet, and it's clear that Septimius and Flavius are the real leaders of the Proto-Templars]].[[note]]The actual "father of understanding" derives from Idries Shah's theory that Baphomet, the pagan deity UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar were accused of worshipping derives from Abu Fihamat, which is the Arab word for "father of understanding"[[/note]].
* BlingOfWar: He is shown wearing very shiny armour, including a breastplate.
* BadassCape: He's shown wearing red and purple capes in the trailer, and happens to be a legendary conquering general.
* HeroWorshipper: Of UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, based on the legend that he wept at his statue in Hispania (mentioned as Rome in the game). [[spoiler:He and Cleopatra visit his tomb, and Caesar laments how Alexander was a prodigy while he lost five decades of his life, blooming late]].[[note]]It's certainly true that Caesar was a late-bloomer but that had more to do with him being a victim of political persecution at the hands of Sulla Felix, who screwed him out of his normal career-path, forcing him to start at the very bottom to ascend the cursus honorum i.e. the Roman political ladder[[/note]]
* HistoricalBeautyUpgrade: Caesar has a full head of hair when he had a receding hairline since childhood and was balding (something he was quite sensitive about, being that he was [[TheDandy incredibly vain]] and sensitive about his appearance).
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade:
** He got this in the lore of the Dagger of Brutus taking the conventional view that Brutus killing him was an act of {{Tyrannicide}}. In actual fact, Caesar was a reformer who aimed to improve the lives of the Roman poor, the Roman Republic was a corrupt oligarchy that had brutally and unconstitutionally murdered reformers for nearly a hundred years, and Brutus was a corrupt LoanShark who stabbed Caesar more or less to become another warlord rather than restore "liberty".[[spoiler:And unlike the finale of ''Origins'' which leaves his ambitions for tyranny unambiguous, historians insist there's no real evidence that Caesar was aiming for tyranny]].
** A good example is how the game frames his pardon of [[spoiler:Lucius Septimus, which the game frames as his FaceHeelTurn. In real-history, Lucius Septimus disappeared from the pages of history with no record as to what happened to him. It was Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw's play ''Caesar and Cleopatra'' which showed Caesar pardon and sparing him, which was there presented as a heroic and noble gesture, but here shown as the reverse. Caesar did have a record of pardoning and sparing his enemies in history, and he did that to end the partisanship and purges of the Roman Empire, of which he himself as a young man was nearly a victim at the hands of the dictator Sulla Felix, who killed many of his family's relations and friends, and would have killed him had his mother not vouched for him]].
* LoveAtFirstSight: [[spoiler:For Cleopatra, he's taken by her looks and her audacity, and indeed he tells everyone to leave the room while he conducts "[[IsThatWhatTheyAreCallingItNow private congress]]" since he has to interview both the Ptolemies. While real historians debate how much this was true of their relationship, the game presents their feelings for each other, at least on Caesar's part, as genuine]].
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He has a low opinion about women in battle. This causes him to entrust the task of signalling his fleet to Bayek only, while [[UnderestimatingBadassery deliberately ignoring Aya]]. After Bayek hands the task over to Aya, Caesar berates Bayek for the decision until the signal is lit. [[spoiler:When Aya kills Caesar within the Senate, he appears to have forgotten her despite having met her several times. This shows that he still had a low opinion of women in action despite his personal experience.]]
* SilverFox: The game depicts him as a well-built older man with a full head of white hair, but still fairly attractive, which probably helps explain the MayDecemberRomance he has with Cleopatra.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Through Caesar, Septimius and the rest of the Order had plans to control the Roman Empire once it is established, much like how they controlled Egypt through Ptolemy XIII.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He has a somewhat subdued rant during his death scene, during which he regrets being unable to fulfill his ambitions, declares his wish for Roman rule to last forever, and [[DefiantToTheEnd defiantly tells Aya that Cleopatra will never fall to her or any other assassin]].]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pompey Magnus]]
!! UsefulNotes/PompeyTheGreat

Former member of the First Triumvirate, Pompey sails for Egypt after his defeat of Caesar at the Battle of Pharsalia.
----
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Caesar regrets seeing Pompey's fate, true to history]].
* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: The real Pompey was known to be good looking as a young man, but was known to have become an ugly older man at the time of his death. His appearance in the game is a major update, with him looking like a man in his late thirties or early forties rather than the middle-aged man he was at the time of his death.
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler:En route to a planned meeting with Pompey, where the Order of the Ancients reach him first, Bayek, Aya and Cleopatra find his decapitated body, while his head is shown in a box in a cutscene later on]].
[[/folder]]

!Other Characters

[[folder:Reda]]
!!Reda

A child nomad merchant whom Bayek befriends.
----
* ABoyAndHisX: A boy and his camel. Which he often repeats is the only thing his parents left him.
* MultipleChoicePast: He tells Bayek several stories of his parents death. When called out on it, he jokes that he's free to invent, and that the past is just dreams.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's a child, but he's surprisingly deep.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kensa]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Nicole Stamp

A friend of Bayek's from Siwa turned gladiatrix at the Krokodilopolis arena.
----
* BashBrothers: She and Bayek fight side by side in the arena.
* CoveredWithScars: Her face and upper body are covered in tribal scarification patterns.
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:If she sees Bayek when he tries to kill the Crocodile, she'll admit she always felt it was her destiny to die by Bayek's blade, and tries to make that happen.]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Goes around barefoot.
* FacialMarkings: Apart from her scars, while in the arena her entire upper face is covered in white facepaint.
* GlorySeeker: Her primary concern is glory, [[spoiler:even to the point that she's willing to work for the Crocodile even after learning that Bayek had come to Faiyum to hunt for her.]]
* TheHedonist: As far as she's concerned, glory in the arena and money are all that matters, and it's implied she and Bayek clashed in the past over the latter's more idealistic worldview.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Uses a hide shield in tandem with her sword.
* MadeASlave: She reveals to Bayek that when Ptolemy came to Siwa, Lucius Septimius took her as a slave but she managed to escape, eventually ending up at the Krokodilopolis arena.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Bayek. [[spoiler:She eventually goes to work for the Crocodile as a guard/enforcer. If she sees Bayek when he tries to kill the Crocodile, she'll admit she always felt it was her destiny to die by Bayek's blade. Despite this it is possible to avoid killing her like one would any other guard.]]

[[/folder]]

!Trials of the Gods

[[folder:In General]]

A series of four optional battles against incarnations of Ancient Egyption gods. Succeeding in all of them unlocks a legendary Anubis-themed outfit for Bayek in addition to the four pieces of equipment he gains by defeating the individual gods.
----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Similar to the Phylakes, completing the whole set of trials rewards Bayek with an outfit that doesn't do anything but look cool. Fortunately, the individual trials offer [[InfinityPlusOneSword far more useful gear]].
* ArbitraryMissionRestriction:
** While you're free to bring whatever gear you want, bows are the only weapons that can actually deal damage to the gods themselves (though your melee weapons can kill the mooks the gods summon, which in turn damages the god). Since the targets are pretty far away from you, imprecise ones like warrior bows or light bows are largely useless, thus restricting your choice to hunter bows and predator bows. It also means that anyone who's over-reliant on [[LimitBreak Overpower]] attacks is in for a hard time.
* AttackItsWeakpoint: So far, the only way to damage the ones that have appeared is to shoot a huge glowing sphere in their chest with arrows.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Egypt's ancient gods are far and away the largest enemies in the entire franchise. Only their upper bodies from the waist up are sticking out of the ground, but even then they tower at least fifty feet above their surroundings.
* BonusBoss: Nothing forces you to do battle with them, and they don't figure into the story at all, but they're a blast to fight, give decent amounts of experience and gold, and drop some of the best gear in the game.
* BraggingRightsAward: Completing all four trials takes at least one real-world month due to the way they spawn in-game. Since it takes about 60-80 hours to achieve OneHundredPercentCompletion of ''AC:O'', by the point you've acquired the last of the Trial rewards, you probably won't have anything left to use them on. Compounded by their level requirement of 40, which means you won't be able to even attempt any trial until you've already completed roughly 80% of the story.
* BreatherBoss: Ironically for representations of actual gods, they're a lot easier to defeat than almost any other BonusBoss the game has to offer. That's not saying you should take them on below level 40, but their attacks are extremely telegraphed, show exactly where they'll hit, and are very easy to avoid. The only challenge you might face are the {{Mook}} waves, and even they go down just like all the others you've faced by that point. [[TropesAreNotBad The battles are still epic and one hell of a lot of fun regardless.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: If you emerge victorious, you actually just defeated an incarnate Egyptian god single-handedly.
* FlunkyBoss: Prepare to repel two to three waves of powerful level 40 {{Mook}}s during the battle, all the while the god is still throwing his own attacks your way. Killing those mooks actually damages the god further.
* AGlitchInTheMatrix: Fighting actual gods is beyond even this franchise's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, so their presence is explained as glitches in the Animus systems.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: The trials can be repeated as often as you want until they despawn, which means you're free to deploy the gear you just gained from defeating a god against him during the rematch.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: The equipment dropped by the gods is among the best gear one can acquire in the game. Anubis' Conductor of Souls is an almost literal example.
* MarathonBoss: No other boss in the game takes nearly as long to defeat as them. 10-15 minutes per battle is a reasonable time frame if you know what to do.
* PlayEveryDay: Each trial is active for one real-time week before another one takes its place. Ubisoft promised that all four trials will show up again sooner or later in case you missed one.
* ShowsDamage: Their TronLines glow ever brighter the more damage they take, and sections of their bodies break off.
* TronLines: Golden ones, specifically. They glow brighter and brighter the more damage the god suffers.
* TurnsRed: Their attacks become more frequent and increasingly dangerous at certain health thresholds (usually in 33% intervals).
* UnfriendlyFire: Their summoned mooks can be hit and damaged by the gods' other attacks just like Bayek, which can be exploited with some clever positioning once the red target markers appear on the ground. If you have the health to spare, you can even chose to tank an [=AoE=] attack on purpose, then take advantage of the fact that Bayek recovers from knockdown much faster than enemies do [[KickThemWhileTheyreDown to get some easy hits in]].
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: As they are Animus glitches, Bayek does not react or comment on them since these battles never occured in his life.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anubis]]

The jackal-headed Ancient Egyptian god of the dead. He appears in the northernmost part of the Great Sand Sea.
----

* ActionBomb: His (potentially) most dangerous attack sics waves of [[IncendiaryExponent flaming]] hyena spectres on Bayek that charge him in a straight line. If he doesn't manage to evade their following pounce, they explode and deal heavy damage. It starts out with two hyenas per attack cycle and goes up to six when Anubis' health falls below 33%.
* CastingAShadow: As befits the god of the dead, his personal attacks revolve around projecting darkness and shadows.
* CoolSword: Defeating him unlocks the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Conductor of Souls]], a glyph-encrusted peerless murder machine that comes with high-level [[CriticalHit Critical Hit Rate]] and Combo Multiplier boosts, topped off with the ever-useful [[LifeDrain Life on Kill]] ability.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sobek]]

The crocodile-headed Ancient Egyptian god of water and fertility. He appears in the swampland of Heraklion Nome, a region of the Nile Delta far to the northeast.
----

* DishingOutDirt: His attacks are based on manipulating the ground itself, like summoning shockwaves through the earth or exploding puddles of boiling mud.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Pelting him with arrows is the only way to damage Sobek. If you gave Bayek the ability to add arrows that hit his shield to his own quiver, you can effectively defeat Sobek by shooting his own RainOfArrows back at him.
* RainOfArrows: He starts summoning them once the second phase of his battle begins. Escaping the affected area in time is nearly impossible, but thankfully the arrows can be blocked with a shield like those of human archers.
* StaffOfAuthority: Defeating him unlocks the Was Sceptre, an item frequently depicted as a symbol of power in the hands of various Egyptian Gods (most prominently Anubis).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sekhmet]]
The Lion-headed Goddess of War, Healing and the Sun. She appears in the desert south of Egypt.
----

* FrickinLaserBeams: She fires giant lasers from her Sun Disk at Bayek.
* LightIsNotGood: Much as in mythology she is a sun goddess with access to light and fire. She uses both to burn your ass.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: She gives a unique shield, that emphasizes her role as protector goddess.
* PlayingWithFire: She shoots fireballs from her hands, and ignites areas around her.

The original form of the Assassins' Brotherhood. For more details of its incarnations through the ages, see [[Characters/AssassinsCreedTheAssassins here]].
----
* BenevolentConspiracy: As the quote above shows, their purpose was to counteract the evil conspiracy formed by the Order of Ancients.
* {{Fingore}}: Initiates willingly cut off their ring finger in order to better use the Hidden Blade as well as a sign of loyalty to Bayek, though he's personally uncomfortable about the latter.
* GoodCounterpart: Of the Order of the Ancients, working to help the common people.
* GreaterScopeParagon: As co-founder of the Hidden Ones with Aya, many of Bayek's traditions such as the Leap of Faith and using a white object (a feather up until after Altair's time) to sop up the blood of targets were taken up by later Assassins.
* LaResistance: Originally formed from various people resisting Ptolemy's regime.
* SkeletonMotif: The Assassin symbol is indeed derived from the underside of an eagle skull, in particular [[spoiler:the one on Khemu's pendant, when Bayek finally discarded it.]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Abubakar Salim

->''"You may not be a king, Bayek. But history follows you."''

The last of the Medjay, Bayek of Siwa fights against the mysterious Order of the Ancients to protect Egypt.
----
* ActionDad: Father of a young boy and a ExperiencedProtagonist at the start of the game. Sadly, his son dies early and he spends the rest of the story seeking to avenge him.
* BadassBaritone: Speaks with a deep, commanding voice.
* BaldOfAwesome: He shaves his hair. According to a conversation with Esio, a Roman kid in Cyrene, it's because he doesn't want to wash it.
* BattleCouple: He and Aya fight alongside one another on some missions, and they happen to be married.
* BeardOfSorrow: At the beginning of the game he wears a long beard and his hair is grown out, [[spoiler:likely as a result of his son's death.]]
* BerserkButton: The death of his son, or harming children in general.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Wields a Hidden Blade on his left arm, that in fact was the very same one used by [[Characters/AssassinsCreedHistoricalAssassins Darius]] to kill King Xerxes I of Persia.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Bayek is characterized as deeply religious unlike other Assassins, who were agnostic or atheistic. His departure words to his targets has him say that the afterlife waits them instead of "rest in peace" like Ezio did. Also, while all Assassins would form families themselves later in their lives (a given, since they'd need to have descendants), Bayek is already a father at the start of the story.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: [[spoiler:After he founds the Hidden One brotherhood, his story's importance shifts to the relative background, with more importance placed upon Aya's transformation into Amunet and the heightened animosity toward Egyptian and Roman politics.]]
* DualWielding: Bayek can equip twin sets of swords for quick short ranged attacks.
* ExperiencedProtagonist: Unlike earlier Assassins who happened to be in their teens and early 20s starting out, Bayek is already an accomplished warrior in his mid-30s.
* FamedInStory: By the third act, Bayek of Siwa has started gaining a reputation around Egypt, as he learns when he runs into Tahira.
* {{Fingore}}: Bayek loses his left ring finger during a struggle with Eudoros in which the Hidden Blade accidentally triggers and slices it off, later forcing him to cauterize the wound. This likely is what led to the ritual finger-severing for a millennium.
* FriendToAllChildren: Due to the loss of his son, Bayek has a soft spot for all children. This comes up several times through the game. In the epilogue, he takes the time after an assassination to escort one of the kids he freed back home personally, as the boy is too afraid to go on his own. It is also part of his motivation to form the Brotherhood.
--> ''"And I promise for all the sons of Egypt I will be the father I was not that day in Siwa."''
* GoodIsOldFashioned: The Medjay are considered little more than an inconvenient relic by Egypt at large, but Bayek is a good guy.
* GroinAttack: He's the target of a darkly funny example when the grieving widow of one of the Ancients he killed suddenly shows up out of nowhere and knees him in the balls while he was talking to someone else.
* HappilyMarried: To his wife, Aya, though it's been slightly strained by her loyalty to Cleopatra.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Bayek is seen wielding the ''khopesh'' (Pictured to the right), ''shotel'', and Roman ''spatha''.
* HeroicNeutral: While Bayek does care about other people elsewhere, his primary concern is with keeping Egypt safe from internal and domestic threats. It's Aya who actually has the idea to spread the Hidden Ones throughout the world.
* HumanNotepad: Has the names of his targets tattooed on his right arm. Painfully removed one by scrarring himself with the tip of a arrow.
* HyperspaceArsenal: While he can have a maximum of [[WalkingArmory two melee weapons, two bows, about fifty arrows and a handful of support items]] ready at all times, there's no limit to how many weapons, items and crafting components Bayek can carry as loot, with no explanation given where he puts all that stuff. This explicitly includes all his mounts. Yes, even the three war chariots.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In the cinematic trailer he kills a mace-wielding soldier about to kill him by [[ImpromptuTracheotomy shooting him in the throat]] with an arrow fired from his bow, using his feet. In the game proper, he can headshot enemies with a bow in midair, which actually unlocks an achievement ''and'' has a special skill dedicated to it that slows down time while he's aiming in free-fall.
* LegendaryWeapon: Bayek's Hidden Blade is the one used to assassinate Xerxes four centuries prior. "Legendary" is also the name of the highest of three equipment tiers, most of which are weapons, so in the late game he'll probably run around with one or two dozen legendary weapons in his HyperspaceArsenal.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Bayek may be having supernatural experiences with the gods and his son (or First Civilization given the game's premise) [[SanitySlippage or he may just be going crazy due to grief]] over the OffingTheOffspring incident.
* MeaningfulName: Bayek is a play on the hieroglyphic word for "falcon" or "vulture".
* MultiMeleeMaster: Bayek can master multiple types of weapons, including [[AnAxeToGrind axes]], [[BladeOnAStick polearms]], [[DropTheHammer hammers]], [[DualWielding dual blades]], [[GoodOldFisticuffs his fists]], [[SimpleStaff staves]], and a SwordAndShield.
* NiceGuy: He's a genuinely kind, noble, good-hearted man, who takes his role as protector of Egypt seriously. He also has a wry sense of humour and a large soft spot in caring for the children in need he comes across. The only time he ever truly raises his voice is when confronting the utterly monstrous Order of Ancients and their supporters.
* OffingTheOffspring: A completely tragic variant since he accidentally kills Khemu when one of the Ancients dodges his knife and drives it into his son's chest.
* OneManArmy: He wipes out entire enemy camps by himself throughout the game, and that's just for starters.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: His son Khemu was killed by the Order of the Ancients.
* RealMenLoveJesus:
** Bayek is very devout in his faith in the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian pantheon]] and keeps dropping references to Egypt's idea of the afterlife and beyond, and sees his quest as a means [[spoiler:to help his son reach the "field of reeds", the heaven-like afterlife]]. This also puts him in a stark contrast to previous games' protagonists, who tended to be atheistic such as Altair and Arno.
** Several of his quests involve facing people who are performing blasphemy (Making the holy crocodiles of Sobek sick, or killing sacred Crocodiles in Krocodilopolis to use their mummies for smuggling). In a similarity to the other more agnostic or atheist protagonists, Bayek also regularly faces and opposes priests who exploit religion for their own gain. The main difference is that Bayek sees their actions not just as an injustice, but as an insult to his faith.
* ReligiousBruiser: In stark contrast to {{player character}}s in other games released before ''Origins'', Bayek is very devout when it comes to [[Myth/EgyptianMythology his religion]].
* {{Revenge}}: Desires revenge against the Order of the Ancients for the death of his son about a year before the game's events.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: Not only can Bayek swim underwater, but fight underwater as well.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:He and Aya were ultimately buried next to each other as per Egyptian custom once they died.]]
* TragicKeepsake: The Eagle Skull pendant he wears belonged to Khemu. [[spoiler:He discards it at the end, as a show of how he moved on. Its impression in the sand would become the Assassin Brotherhood's logo]].
* TrashTalk: Does occasionally deal in trash talk while fighting bosses.
* WalkingArmory: Bayek is a good example of this, after Arno and the Frye twins downplayed this trope. In addition to his Hidden Blade and other tools, he goes into battle with 2 weapons load-outs, a shield and 2 bows, along with assortments of darts, grenades, and other items.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He hates snakes and says this word for word during the "Curse of Wadjet" quest.
* WouldHitAGirl: Story-wise he kills Khaliset and Berenike, and in the sidequests that have him facing women in combat, he shows no hesitation at all.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: His unarmed Overpower move is a dropkick.

!!Senu

A female Bonelli's Eagle that serves as Bayek's partner.
----
* ActionPet: With an upgrade, she can attack and stun targets when controlled, and will do so on her own randomly during combat to help Bayek. She will also attack wildlife when Bayek is hunting, and she's fully capable of taking out animals many times her size.
* AnimalEyeSpy: Bayek can see through Senu's eyes. It's clarified that he can see through many animals' eyes, but Senu is the one he uses the most regularly and strongly.
* BigDamnHeroes: When Bayek is buried to his neck in sand and left for dead by the Scarab, Senu attacks a nearby horse so that it'll pull him out.
* NobleBirdOfPrey: Senu is evidently the origin of the Assassin Brotherhood's eagle fixation and namesake of the later Assassins' Eagle Vision, aiding Bayek in his missions.

[[folder:Aya]]
!!Aya
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_aya.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Alix Wilton Regan

-> ''"You and I are pledged to violence, now and always."''

Bayek's wife and a fellow Assassin, who is deeply loyal to Cleopatra. While she was trained alongside Bayek, she is not a Medjay.
----

* AmicableExes: [[spoiler:They become this at the end of ''Origins'', their commitment to the Creed leads to their marriage ending, over the grief of their lost child, and Aya leaves to establish Assassin bureaus across the Mediterranean]].
* AncientTomb: [[spoiler:Her tomb was supposedly located in the Basilica di San Marco in Venice, Italy. This is not her real tomb as it turns out she was buried next to Bayek in Egypt]].
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: She is the player character in various segments, including Naval missions.
* BattleCouple: She and Bayek fight alongside one another on some missions, and they happen to be married.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: She is [[spoiler:Amunet, first introduced in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'']].
* {{Deuteragonist}}: She is playable for a few missions and is the one to kill [[spoiler:both Septimius and Caesar]]. Furthermore, while Bayek comes up with the idea for the Brotherhood, [[spoiler:he seems intent to keep to Egypt alone, with Aya/Amunet being the one to take the fight against tyranny to Rome and gain more likeminded allies, and ultimately go global]].
* DualWielding: During segments when you control her, she is restricted to a set of twin blades.
* {{Expy}}: Her facial design and hairstyle make her look a lot like Sitara from ''VideoGame/WatchDogs2''
* {{Fingore}}: [[spoiler:In the ending, it's shown that she sliced off her ring finger, likely to accommodate her Hidden Blade.]]
* {{Foil}}: [[spoiler:While Bayek is intent on gaining vengeance for Khemu's death so as to allow him to ascend to the Field of Reeds and escape the Duat, Aya's concerns are more focused on the here-and-now. While she does care about burial customs and has some semblance of religious nature, she is more concerned with the destruction of the Order of the Ancients, rather than single-mindedly seeking to bring peace to Khemu. This is best shown when, in their final conversation, she tells [[ReligiousBruiser Bayek]] "the gods are dead."]]
* GoodIsNotNice: During one quest, Aya and Bayek are investigating who has poisoned an Apis bull. As Bayek returns from investigating, Aya is talking with the temple maidens, and informs them that she will kill whoever did it. Since they are the guilty party, they immediately become ''very'' afraid.
* HappilyMarried: To Bayek at the start of the game, it gets tested in the course of the game.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She throws herself fully behind Cleopatra, at first, even when she's shown to be callous and cruel from the offset, and Bayek is less taken with her. Surprise, Cleopatra screws the pair of them over.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:She killed Cleopatra with a snake]].
* InTheHood: [[spoiler:Wears [[MythologyGag a white hooded cloak]] she takes from a member of the Senate when going to infiltrate the Curio and assassinate Caesar. Afterwards, she incorporates the hood into her standard outfit as Amunet.]]
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: As Amunet, famed Assassin of Cleopatra, killing her former friend with the very symbol of the Order she sided with, instead of remaining loyal to Aya and Bayek, positively stinks of this.]]
* LegendaryInTheSequel: [[spoiler:She will become Amunet and part of the Assassins Hall of Fame, by Ezio's time]].
* LoveCannotOvercome: [[spoiler:Her commitment to fighting the Order of Ancients runs contrary to Bayek's concern solely for the condition of Khemu's soul. They also both admit that they are only going through the motions, but that seeing the other only brings back painful memories of Khemu's death.]]
* MasterOfNone: During the moments where you control her in the main game, upgrades made as Bayek do not carry over to Aya, which along with her being restricted to a set of Dual Swords means that she is objectively weaker gameplay-wise.
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she renames herself Amunet "the Hidden One". Amunet is also the Egyptian goddess of air and invisibility. The name means "the female hidden one" or "one who is hidden"]].
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:She sacrifices her name and identity as Aya in exchange for Amunet, even stating that she's symbolically killed Aya.]]
* MixedAncestry: Half-Greek, half-Egyptian.
* OriginStory: [[spoiler:Aside from the origin of the Assassins, ''Origins'' shows the origin for [[LegendaryInTheSequel Amunet]], the killer of Cleopatra.]]
* StealthHiBye: Pulls a textbook example as her very last on-screen action during the epilogue.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Whereas her husband never deviates from his friendly, helpful and amicable behavior, Aya becomes colder and colder the farther the story progresses. In the end she's icy and merciless who, by her own admission, ditched all love and affection in her life to devote herself completely to her new role as a shadowy killer in service to the greater good.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: As she tells Bayek:
--> '''Aya''': ''"To protect Egypt, I would kill a thousand priests."''
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:With Cleopatra, since she is her devoted supporter at the start of the game, but later on, Aya as Amunet assassinates her former friend]].
* WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Despite being ordered by Cleopatra to assassinate Ptolemy if she runs into him during the Battle of the Nile, she finds herself unable to do so even when she has him dead to rights as he's escaping on a boat. Of course, at that moment Aya's dilemma between duty and morality is solved when two crocodiles attack his escape boat and kill him. That said, she's still visibly horrified by the whole thing.]]

[[folder:Marcus Junius Brutus]]
!! UsefulNotes/MarcusJuniusBrutus

A Roman Senator and Assassin in the first century BCE, Brutus was assigned to plan the assassination of Consul UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar, who was being manipulated by the Templars. Plagued by visions of a cavern throughout his life, he discovered them beneath Rome, which was the location of Juno's Temple. Originally a lore character in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'' as part of the Lairs of Romulus, he becomes a supporting character in ''Origins''.
----
* TheCameo: He appears very briefly in the ending of ''Origins''.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Is given visions of the [[WhileRomeBurns Burning of Rome]] after discovering the Colosseum Vault.
* DrivenToSuicide: He killed himself after the Assassins were forced to leave Rome and his army was defeated. His fellow Assassins tried to use The Shroud to bring him back to life, but all it did was reanimate his body for a few minutes, with him saying nothing, before dying again.
* GroinAttack: [[spoiler:As the one to land the final blow on Caesar, he stabs him in what seems like the nether regions.]]
* HistoricalHeroUpgrade:
** ''Brotherhood'' and the wider lore wholeheartedly embrace the HollywoodHistory notion that Brutus killed Caesar to preserve the Roman Republic and prevent the Empire embracing the GoodRepublicEvilEmpire context. In truth, the Roman Republic was a corrupt oligarchy that brutally murdered reformers, Brutus himself as per Creator/{{Cicero}} was a corrupt LoanShark who extorted high interest loans from the poor and sent goons to torture them to make them pay up, and his assassination and betrayal of Caesar happened not because he was becoming a King but because his reforms, such as redistributing public land to veterans and other initiatives, were taking effect and becoming permanent.
** In the finale, [[spoiler:Brutus tells Caesar that he wants to establish a Rome of peace, justice, and land for the people. "Land for the people" was in fact the policies of Caesar and his ''populare'' faction, which Brutus and his cohorts wholeheartedly opposed]].
* KnifeNut: The Dagger of Brutus, which he used to kill Caesar and was later recovered by Ezio Auditore.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He is horrified after killing Caesar, who had only stopped resisting the attack when he saw Brutus approaching. His shame caused him to hide away his armor and weapon in a secret vault under Rome.
* UnevenHybrid: The fact that he could interact with First Civilization technology indicates that he had traces of First Civilization DNA.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Phoxidas]]
!!Phoxidas
A mercenary captain originally hired by Aya to lead her to Pompey Magnus to seal an alliance between him and Cleopatra.
----

* AffectionateNickname: Aya eventually takes to calling him "Phox" after they've spent a couple years working and fighting alongside each other.
* BadassBeard: He wears a large beard and happens to be a fearless mercenary captain.
* BoisterousBruiser: He sure loves his sea battles and makes sure everyone knows it.
* TheCaptain: Of his ship, though he lets Aya take command as he's impressed by how she's mastered sailing.
* HeroicSacrifice: Subverted. He volunteers to pull a YouShallNotPass on an Order fleet so [[spoiler:Bayek and Aya can get Cleopatra to Rome]] while his ships are getting hammered into submission, but he shows up again alive and well later in the game.
* InHarmsWay: Phoxidas is a wealthy man with a whole private fleet to his name who could've retired ages ago, but he continues to sail the seas and engage in pitched battles because that's where he feels most alive.
* LargeHam: His default mode of communication. ''Especially'' during naval combat.
* LovableRogue: He's a mercenary, but he's constantly impressed by and supportive of Aya.
* MadeOfIron: [[spoiler:Takes a fire arrow to the shoulder during the battle for Rome, yanks it out]] and treats it as little more than an inconvenience while he keeps on shouting orders and cussing out his enemies.
* NoIndoorVoice: Understandable for a trireme captain since the only way to relay orders to everyone back then was to shout them, but he keeps up this volume even when he's talking to someone who's standing an arm's length away.
* NonIdleRich: As mentioned above, he prefers to actively support the Assassins' cause over resting on his laurels and riches back home.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: His original motivations.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He's basically Shay Cormac's quartermaster Christopher Gist from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRogue'', only with a different accent and on the other side of the Templar-Assassin War.
* ThinkingOutLoud: He's prone to say whatever is on his mind, and doesn't really care who he is speaking to or in the presence of.

!The Order of the Ancients
'''Many of these characters are [[WalkingSpoiler Walking Spoilers]] and their entries feature a lot of in-game details that are not hidden behind spoiler tags. If you have not played to the end of the game, [[Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned read at your own risk]]'''.

[[folder:In General]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f5m79k1f.jpg]]

A shadowy group of influential people that seeks to control Egypt and eventually the rest of the world. Their symbol is a serpent wearing the Double Crown of Egypt.
----
* AncientConspiracy: UpToEleven. As founders of what will become the Templar Order, the members of this organization are influential citizens in their respective societies, consisting of government officials, generals, priests, wealthy merchants and other social elite. It's also ''literally'' ancient in that the founder of the Order was the Egyptian pharoah Smenkhkare, who discovered the Isu vault Eeyoo Sekedoo Aat around 1334 BCE, and founded the Order in order to better understand the Isu, aka Those Who Came Before.
* AnimalMotifs:
** Their aliases are based around various animals, and even their death scenes tend to have the animals in question show up around them.
** The Order as a whole has an animal representing it, [[spoiler:[[SnakesAreSinister the snake]]]], contrasting the Hidden Ones/Assassin's eagle.
* CreateYourOwnHero: [[spoiler:Had they never antagonized Bayek and murdered his son, he and Aya would likely have never gone after them.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Their attire while in disguise is black in color, and they're antagonists.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: The members come from a variety of cultures, including Greeks and ethnic Egyptians. [[spoiler:After the true vastness of the Order is revealed, Romans as well as various peoples throughout the known world are revealed to belong to the Order as well.]]
* EvilIsPetty: In keeping with their Templar successors, they can do pretty evil and ruthless things just for the fun of it.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: When in disguise, members of the Order wear identical black Egyptian facemasks, black robes, and sandals.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Members of the Order use their political skills and wealth to maneuver themselves into the favor of powerful people everywhere in the known world. This is what allows the Order of the Ancients to survive and prosper despite the changes in political leadership. For example, once Ptolemy XIII is deposed, the surviving members of the Order curry favor with Cleopatra and Caesar by appealing to their desire to rule an empire.]]
* PredecessorVillain: They are this to the Order of the Knights Templar.
* TheManBehindTheMan: At least two of Ptolemy XIII's courtiers are members of the Order.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Two members of the Order are female, the Hyena and [[spoiler:the Crocodile.]]
* TheUnfettered: If they want something, no pretense of morality will stop them from getting it. In their debut trailer this is punctuated through multiple scenes of Order members standing amongst piles of civilian corpses.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Heron]]
!!Rudjek, The Heron

The nomarch (ancient Egyptian administration official) of Saqqara in Egypt during Ptolemy XIII's reign. He is the first of the Order killed by Bayek.
----
* CorruptBureaucrat: Rudjek is a high-ranking government official who abused his authority in the service of the Order of the Ancients. He is hated by rebels from his assigned territory, who have tried to kill him before.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes:
** After Rudjek's death, his bodyguard, Hypatos, tracks Bayek to Siwa over the course of several months to avenge Rudjek's death.
** Rudjek's wife knees Bayek in the groin and spits on him when she sees him.
** [[spoiler:Rudjek's mistress, the assistant healer Suphia, tries to kill Bayek and the Saqqara rebels by [[TheMole betraying them to Ptolemy XIII's soldiers]]. After this fails, she goes on a MotiveRant until she is killed by Namrut, the rebel leader.]]
* FatBastard: He's noticeably portly, and also a member of the Order of the Ancients.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Bayek kills him by first catching the dagger thrown at him [[HoistByHisOwnPetard through his mask]], before stabbing him in the face with it.
* KarmicDeath: Bayek kills him with a dagger of the same make as the one his son was killed with.
* StarterVillain: He's the first Order member Bayek kills.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Ibis]]
!!Medunamun, The Ibis

An oracle of Amun who oppresses the people of Siwa.
----
* BaldOfEvil: Has not a hair on his head, though his headdress makes him look like he bleached his hair.
* ChekhovsGun: He carries a marked sphere which he uses as a symbol of office and a weapon to bludgeon others into submission. Anyone who has played previous ''Assassin's Creed'' games will recognize and understand its importance in the story as an [[MindControlDevice Apple of Eden]].
* {{Guyliner}}: Wears black or dark blue lipstick and gold glitter on his face.
* KickTheDog:
** When people oppose him, he has his men burn their houses to the ground, with them in it, to make an example out of them.
** During his death scene, he taunts Bayek over being unable to save his son, calling him "Bayek of Nothing", which causes him to react by bludgeoning Mendunamun to death with the Apple.
* LeanAndMean: Is described as incredibly thin, but powerful despite it. And of course, he's quite mean indeed, as he's a tyrant towards the people of Siwa.
* AMillionIsAStatistic: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. When Bayek confronts him over the death of his son, Medunamun simply says that one life is nothing compared to the Order's goals of rule by "the strong and virtuous".
* IOwnThisTown: According to him, "Siwa is mine!"
* StarterVillain: The first target Bayek assassinates in-game proper as opposed to a cutscene.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Hippo]]
!!Eudoros, The Hippo
--> Voiced by: Vlasta Vrána

The royal scribe of Ptolemy XIII's court.
----
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:At first, Bayek believes Eudoros to be the Snake and thus the last of the Order of the Ancients. Only later, does Bayek learn that the "Snake" refers to the ''entire'' Order.]]
* FatBastard: He's portly and also an Order member.
* FamousLastWords: "The Snake? ... The Snake will never die." [[spoiler:This serves as a {{Foreshadowing}} to the actual enormity of the Order of the Ancients.]]
* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Other patrons of the bathhouse suspect he comes oftenly to ogle naked boys. Bayek can overear him say his skin condition comes from consorting with a sailor.
* IronicDeath: His alias is "the Hippo", and Bayek kills him by first attempting to drown him before stabbing him in the throat with the Hidden Blade.
* PublicBathhouseScene: Eudoros is a frequent patron of the public bathhouse. This is where Bayek kills him.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Scarab]]
!!Taharqa, The Scarab
--> Voiced by: Tristan D. Lalla

An architect living in Sais and the steward of Letopolis.
----
* BaldOfEvil: A bald villain.
* DirtyBusiness: How he considers the Order.
-->'''Taharqa:''' ''There are things I regret! We all labor for higher powers, we are all in thrall to greater forces.'' There is no escape.
* TheDreaded: The Scarab is greatly feared in the Nile Delta region. Talking about him is almost like asking for a painful death.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He is loved and deeply respected by his family, especially by his wife Meheret and his son Kawab. [[spoiler:This has not stopped him from torturing his father-in-law, Ghupa, when he started to [[HeKnowsTooMuch ask too many questions]].]]
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:After allying with Bayek to kill a band of raiders attacking the Letopolis ruins, Taharqa drugs Bayek and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness leaves him to die, buried up to his neck in the desert sand]].]]
* GlorySeeker: He desperately wants to be remembered long after he dies and wants Letopolis to be his everlasting legacy.
* ManOfTheCity: He sees himself as a builder of cities and a bringer of waters.
* {{Sadist}}: One of the Scarab's favored execution methods is burying people up to their necks in sand and leaving them to die. One scene has him dropping and spilling a cup of water in front of one such victim. He also has a habit of subjecting his victims to ColdBloodedTorture and ripping out their tongues with hot pokers.
* ScaryBlackMan: Taharqa is black, and is also a pretty scary character with his tendencies for torture and leaving people buried by their necks in desert sand to die of exposure.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He is well-known and respected in his public identity as an architect.
* VisionaryVillain: His dream is to restore the ruins of Letopolis into a functional city. He encourages people to live there by providing benefits in exchange for building houses for the city.
* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:In ''The Hidden Ones'' DLC, a sidequest has Bayek being confronted by an older Kawab, who wants revenge for Bayek killing his father. Fortunately, Bayek manages to convince Kawab to give up on revenge, and even persuades him to join the Hidden Ones.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Hyena]]
!!Khaliset, The Hyena
--> Voiced by: Mouna Traoré

An explorer and an amateur scholar. She also keeps a trained pack of hyenas.
----
* AdventurerArchaeologist: When Bayek encountered her, Khaliset was attempting to decipher symbols on an artifact made by "Those Who Came Before", with which she hoped to resurrect her daughter Eshe. She is the only person in this story to know about the First Civilization and she may have been one of the first humans to rediscover their existence after their passing from the world.
* AlasPoorVillain: She is the only member of the Order whom Bayek shows sympathy for because he too knows what it's like to lose a child and, during her death scene, she wonders if she'll even see her daughter, Eshe, after her death.
* ArcherArchetype: She wields a bow and appears to have a very serious demeanor.
* ArrowsOnFire: Fires flaming arrows during her battle with Bayek.
* TheBeastmaster: She has trained a number of hyenas that will follow her commands. After Khaliset dies, it is hinted that [[{{Irony}} these same hyenas will feast on her corpse]].
* BodyPaint: Her face is covered in white markings.
* DarkActionGirl: Not only is she a woman working alongside the mostly male-dominated Order of Ancients, but she's one of the few members of the group that gets a prolonged boss fight instead of just being a glorified mook.
* DeathCryEcho: "I just want my daughter back... PLEASE!?"
* DraggedOffToHell: At the end of her death scene, hyenas drag her by her feet into the Duat.
* FlunkyBoss: She sends her hyenas against Bayek during their battle.
* GetBackHereBoss: She uses her bow, smoke bombs, traps and her pet hyenas to keep Bayek at a distance while fighting him. Khaliset also takes advantage of the environs of the Pyramid of Khufu to restrict Bayek's movements.
* HumanSacrifice: She has kidnapped and sacrificed several people in rituals meant to resurrect her daughter.
* {{Necromantic}}: Her entire motivation for killing people stems from a belief that she can resurrect her daughter.
* NotSoDifferent: Both she and Bayek are driven by the deaths of their children.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Her daughter died at some point prior to the game, and she works with the Order of Ancients to resurrect her.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Wears a small skull in the center of her headdress.
* TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow: Bayek tells Khaliset that the knowledge of the First Civilization is not meant for humans to know, making her efforts to resurrect her daughter futile.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Lizard]]
!!Hetepi, The Lizard
--> Voiced by: David R. Collins

A priest of Anubis at the Great Temple of Memphis and an advisor to the high priest, Pasherenptah.
----
* ClueEvidenceAndASmokingGun: This how Bayek eventually finds and kills Hetepi. [[spoiler:Bayek learns that the Apis Bull was actually poisoned by finding peach pits in the bull's dung and food supply. He then interrogates the bull's feeders, the Twin Priestesses, who tell him that they were ForcedIntoEvil because their brother, Panchrates, was kidnapped. After being rescued, Panchrates tells Bayek that his kidnappers answered to a priest with a blue scarf and a bad cough. This vital clue allows Pasherenptah to identify the culprit as Hetepi.]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: His main distinguishing trait is wearing a blue scarf and having a bad cough.
* TheFaceless: The Lizard is never shown without his mask, even during his death scene.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:During Hetepi's death scene, the first thing shown is a hieroglyphic snake, the symbol of the Order of the Ancients, and a clue that the Order is bigger than Bayek had imagined.]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: He constantly wears a full-face metal helmet in the shape of a dog's head that serves to indicate his status as a priest of Anubis. It also means that Bayek actually has to make sure that he kills the right priest and not mistake another for him.
* PoisonIsEvil: The Lizard's modus operandi. He has tainted the natron used to preserve mummies and poisoned food at the Great Temple to give miscarriages to Taimhotep, Pasherenptah's wife. [[spoiler:He also manipulated the Twin Priestesses into poisoning the Apis Bull with peach pits.]]
* SinisterMinister: He is a powerful priest of Anubis and has the trust of the high priest, Pasherenptah. Since Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife, Hetepi's acts as the Lizard were [[{{Irony}} contrary to his priestly duties]]. It is likely that Hetepi was causing unrest with poison in an effort to gain more influence in Memphis.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Crocodile]]
!!Berenike, The Crocodile
-->'''Voiced by:''' Colette Stevenson

The nomarch of Faiyum, the owner of the Kerkesoucha granary and a patron of the Krokodilopolis arena.
----
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: She barely remembers murdering a child and her [[LackOfEmpathy bored, apathetic expression]] towards Bayek's ranting speaks volumes about her callousness.
* CorruptBureaucrat: Like Rudjek, she is a government official who has abused her authority to fund the Order's activities, and has the Greek and Egyptian populations segregated in order to create "peace".
* EvilOldFolks: She's visibly aged despite her lack of white hair, and she's evil enough to think nothing of murdering children to make a point. She has also sent soldiers and henchmen to ransack settlements in the Faiyum region in order to recover a ledger that contained the names of many members of the Order of the Ancients.
* GladiatorGames: She is a long-time patron of gladiators, whom she frequently hires as henchmen.
* HairDecorations: Wears a flower wreath on top of her head.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: When confronted by Bayek with her crimes, this was her answer, word for word.
* LackOfEmpathy: She comes across as one of the most callous members of the Order of Ancients, truly having no care for human life. When confronted by Bayek in her death scene, Berenike wears a bored expression the entire time, doesn't remember the name of the little girl she drowned in front of her mother, and writes off the suffering of the families she's destroyed as worthless and worth it to remake Egypt without a shred of remorse.
* ManOfTheCity: According to Hotephres she considers herself the proprietor of Faiyum's culture.
* SamusIsAGirl: The Crocodile is presumed male before Berenike's identity is revealed.
* SlouchOfVillainy: When Bayek confronts her in her death scene, she's lazing against a giant white crocodile, completely content.
* TomTheDarkLord: Berenike is the Ancient Greek form of "Bernice" (which means "bearer of victory" and whose Latin form is the more familiar Veronica), and she's one of the nastiest characters in the game.
* WouldHurtAChild: She does not hesitate to drown a young girl in order to intimidate her mother. Especially noteworthy in that her own soldiers are [[EvenEvilHasStandards appalled]] by what she did, and the pair of murderers working as hired muscle for her point-blank refused to do it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Jackal]]
!!Lucius Septimius, The Jackal
--> Voiced by: Jonny Glynn

The leader of the Gabiniani, a group of soldiers exiled from Rome currently in the employ of Pharoah Ptolemy XIII.
----
* ArchEnemy: Aya seems to hold him particularly in contempt, considering it is due to the aftermath of his capture that [[spoiler:she loses her clout with Cleopatra and ultimately loses Egypt itself, on top of his involvement in the death of her son.]]
* BadassBoast: "I command armies, I control greatness!"
* BeardOfEvil: He has a full beard that covers much of his face, which is hard to see while he wears his helmet.
* BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler:With Flavius, in the final part of the game. In theory, Flavius is the one in charge, with Septimius as TheDragon, but in practice they are given equal clout, with Septimius as Aya's ArchEnemy and Flavius as Bayek's.]]
* TheBrute: He is the biggest member of the Order as well as its best fighter.
* TheCorrupter: [[spoiler:He preys on Caesar's and, by extension, Cleopatra's ambition to rule an empire to corrupt them.]]
* DefiantToTheEnd: He doesn't stop [[EvilGloating gloating]] once he starts fighting Aya, continuing to taunt her even when at death's door.
* DragonInChief: [[spoiler:After becoming Julius Caesar's [[TheDragon confidant]], Septimius planned to control the future Roman Empire through him in the Order's name. After killing Septimius, Aya easily assassinates Caesar within the Roman Senate.]]
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:After he is captured during the Siege of Alexandria, Septimius quickly becomes one of Julius Caesar's confidants, going from captive to literal right-hand man in two weeks.]]
* EpicFlail: In combat against Bayek, and later Aya, Septimius wields a spiked ball and chain [[DualWielding in tandem with a sword]]. [[spoiler:In the final battle against him, he can use two flails to levitate Aya, indicating that it is likely a Precursor weapon.]]
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:The last person fought in the story as Aya, and the last boss of the game.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: His claim that [[spoiler:Julius Caesar]] is the father of understanding is a big hint about what the Order of the Ancients will eventually become.
* FourStarBadass: He is a Roman general who once served under Pompey Magnus and a powerful fighter. [[DuelBoss He fights alone]] during his battles with Bayek and Aya.
* GoingNative: The Gabiniani were a group of Roman soldiers and mercenaries who served with Cleopatra's father, and went native in the process, assimilating into Egyptian culture and marrying local Egyptian women.
* HateSink: His arrogance and gloating make him easy to hate, resulting in his death becoming all the more satisfying.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Along with Flavius, he kills Hepzefa.]]
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: His claim to fame is being identified as the principal assassin of Pompey. He and his Gabiniani faction did indeed fight for Ptolemy XIII against Caesar and Cleopatra, but Lucius Septimus disappeared from the pages from history. He has appeared in other Roman-era fiction, such as Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw's ''Caesar and Cleopatra'' [[spoiler:where Caesar did spare him as he did in this game]].
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: In his FinalBattle, [[spoiler:he takes to DualWielding {{Epic Flail}}s that are made from some kind of material that lets him swing them around in spirals to keep others far away from him, and can even use them to levitate opponents for strikes. The overall effect is similar to the likes of [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]] with the addition of PowerGlows and PowerFloats.]]
* KickTheDog: He taunts Aya about Khemu's death during their battle.
* LargeAndInCharge: He is noticeably one of the tallest characters in the game and happens to be one of the co-leaders of the Order.
* NemeanSkinning: Septimius wears a bear pelt over his left shoulder.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler:This is how he dies and how Aya finally silences his taunts.]]

[[folder:The Scorpion]]
!!Pothinus, The Scorpion
-->'''Voiced by:''' Gerry Mendicino

The regent of Ptolemy XIII and a eunuch. He is responsible for turning Ptolemy against his sister, Cleopatra.
----
* ArcVillain: He is revealed and killed over the course of a single mission.
* EunuchsAreEvil: He's less evil than the other Order members, but is still antagonistic to Bayek, and happens to be a eunuch.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He admits that the Order's actions in Siwa went too far.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He is quite composed during his death scene.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Pothinus was indeed a real person and, in fact, it was his idea to have Pompey executed to curry Caesar's favor in the first place.
* HeelRealization: Of all the Order's members, he is the only one who apologizes to Bayek for causing his pain. Pothinus knew that there was no such thing as a perfect government where no one suffers, but decides that this did not excuse his and the Order's actions.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: After Bayek shoots Yugr Tn enough times and she falls, Pothinus gets crushed under her weight.
* NoPronunciationGuide: His elephant Yugr Tn's name is pronounced "yu-girth-uh".
* TokenGoodTeammate: He is this to the Order of the Ancients and possibly the Templar Order as well. He is the only one to admit fault in his actions despite his belief that [[WellIntentionedExtremist it was all for the greater good]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He states to Bayek as he dies that, even years ago, he had his doubts about what the Order was doing, but felt that it was best for Egypt in the end.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Lion]]
!!Flavius Metellus, The Lion

The Roman proconsul of the province of Kyrenaika and an ally of Julius Caesar.
----
* ArchEnemy: [[spoiler:When Bayek learns that Flavius was the Ancient who directed the knife that killed his son Khemu, the Medjay warrior becomes completely personally driven to end the Roman's life]].
* BeardOfEvil: He has a neatly trimmed beard and moustache.
* BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler:With Septimius, in the final part of the game. In theory, Flavius is the one in charge, with Septimius as TheDragon, but in practice they are given equal clout, with Septimius as Aya's ArchEnemy and Flavius as Bayek's.]]
* BlueBlood: His last name, Metellus, indicates that he was part of the famous Roman aristocratic family (the Metelli).
* ChekhovsGun: Unlike Medunamun, Flavius is able to use the [[MindControlDevice Apple of Eden's]] power, allowing him to [[TheCorrupter make people into mindless killers]], become invisible and use energy bolts.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: Flavius appears only a few times alongside Caesar but he's mostly a background character and never the focus of a scene. This makes the reveal that he's the one who murdered Bayek's son and the de facto BigBad of the game, all the more surprising.
* TheDreaded: It's implied that his sheer ruthlessness when it came to Khemu's death basically convinced the other Order members to let him ascend to leadership.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: For some reason he thinks that Bayek could've been persuaded to join the Order eventually, despite the fact that they (and he in particular) killed his son.
* GetItOverWith: [[spoiler:In his final moments, he dares Bayek to finish the job. Bayek actually hesitates for a moment because Flavius is, in a twisted way, his last link to his old life and his beloved son. Fortunately, Khemu himself comes to reassure his father that he is now at peace with his murderer finally dead, enabling Bayek to finish Flavius off and find a new direction in life.]]
* AGodAmI: When finally confronted by Bayek, Flavius commands him to kneel before his god.
* HatePlague: [[spoiler:Makes the inhabitants of Siwa and Kyrenica go mad using the power of the Apple, in a disturbing precursor to Al Mualim's use of the Apple on Maysaf 1,238 years later, for reasons that only seem to amount to, [[ForTheEvulz "Why not?"]]]]
* HateSink: If you thought The Crocodile was a nasty piece of work, Flavius is even worse. He has no redeeming qualities nor [[VisionaryVillain well-intentioned ambitions]], he simply does horrific things for his own amusement. An utterly sadistic and callous bastard, killing him was satisfying.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Along with Septimius, he killed Hepzefa.]]
* HiddenVillain: [[spoiler:He's the one who killed Khemu and the one Bayek is hunting down in revenge, but his identity isn't revealed until near the end of the game.]]
* IRegretNothing: [[spoiler:In contrast to [[DirtyBusiness the Scarab]] and [[TokenGoodTeammate the Scorpion]], he shows absolutely no regret for his actions, even claiming that killing Khemu was WorthIt for the power he obtained as a result.]]
* TheSociopath: Thinks nothing of [[spoiler:murdering children]] or anyone else in order to achieve his goals, is a ManipulativeBastard, has a literal god complex due to being able to use an Apple, and sees people only as pawns to be used and discarded when necessary. He's high functioning in that he can keep his impulses under control, but when Bayek confronts him he drops any and all pretenses.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: During his battle with Bayek he refers to him as "just a farmer" and refers to Egypt as just a place filled with "camel herders and shit-shovelers".
* UnevenHybrid: Going by how he can actually use the Apple, he likely has a high amount of First Civilization DNA.
* TheUnfettered: He considered killing Bayek's son a small price to pay for the chance to control both the Order of the Ancients and the future Roman Empire. In fact, he basically says he's proud of it to Bayek's face.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He is a trusted ally of Caesar when he first appears.
* WeCanRuleTogether: When Bayek asks Flavius why he was spared the day his son was killed, Flavius says that he had hoped Bayek would eventually be persuaded to join the Order of the Ancients. Given the diverse membership of the Order, Flavius wasn't kidding. On the other hand, considering that the Ancients also arranged Khemu's death -- the very reason for which Bayek has done everything he did throughout the course of the game -- Flavius did not think this through very well.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:He is directly responsible for Khemu's death, being the masked one who directed Bayek's blade into his son's chest. Once he learns this, Bayek considers Flavius his ArchEnemy.]]

[[folder:Melitta]]
!!Melitta

A priestess living in a mountain temple just outside of Balagrae. She is one of Flavius' closest advisors and allies in the Order of the Ancients.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Praxilla believes she is a friend and capable healer, while Melitta is actually a member of the Order and experimenting on people.
* MadScientist: She is experimenting with the effects of the Apple on captured test subjects, and believes that it is a mixture of science and magic.
* MinorMajorCharacter: Although she is a member of the Order and a key ally of Flavius, Melitta is only encountered in a sidequest and her assassination does not trigger a WhiteVoidRoom conversation.
* SecretKeeper: Flavius' shared many of his plans, including his intent to conquer Egypt and overthrow Caesar, with only Melitta.

He was also fearful, like Bayek was at his age. Bayek intended to repeat the event that led to his own shedding of his fears - a first leap of faith.

!![[UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_hr_cleopatra_closeup_final.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Zora Bishop

->''"The exiled queen Cleopatra thirsts for power!"''

The last Ptolemaic Pharaoh of Egypt, and an ally of Bayek and Aya.
----
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[spoiler:After allying with Caesar, Cleopatra is overtaken by a new ambition to rule an empire. This causes her to neglect her royal duties in Egypt, enabling the Order of the Ancients to regain their foothold in Egypt and oppress its citizens once again.]]
* BalconySpeech: She gives this in a mission in Memphis:
--> '''Cleopatra''': As they rule, the gods curse our land, withholding the river's floods. But as the living goddess ascends the throne, the waters will rise again! Through me, Memphis shines as rubies set in Gold! Through me, Egypt triumphs!
* BrotherSisterIncest: Per history, she and Ptolemy were co-rulers by marriage until he usurped her.
* BrokenPedestal: Aya regards Cleopatra as a living goddess and the greatest hope for Egypt's future. [[spoiler:When she and Caesar side with the Order, this shocks
Senu, Aya, who turns her back on her.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:After
Marcus Junius Brutus, Pasherenptah, Phanos the Siege of Alexandria, her desire to rule an empire grows and she dismisses Bayek and Aya from her service, possibly at the advice of Flavius and Caesar's newest confidant, Septimius. Cleopatra's ambitions turn towards making her son, Caesarion, the future emperor of the new Roman Empire, causing her to neglect her royal duties and enabling the Order of the Ancients to regain its foothold in Egypt despite the earlier murders of several members. At their last meeting, Aya makes it clear to Cleopatra that their friendship is over and warns her to either be the responsible monarch Egypt needs or be killed. [[ForegoneConclusion As Amunet, Aya eventually decides on the latter]].]]
Younger, Phoxidas, Tahira[[/note]]
* ForegoneConclusion: According to Assassin's Creed lore, she will killed by the Assassin Amunet using a venomous asp. [[spoiler:Given that Amunet is Aya's new identity, this brings a sad ending to the friendship between two former friends.]]
* AGodAmI: As Pharaoh she's seen as a goddess, and Aya even refers to her as one. It's part of Egyptian culture, and not necessarily meant to be a good thing or a bad thing.
* HistoricalBeautyUpgrade: The game's Cleopatra goes for a rather classic, regal, and beautiful Cleopatra who looks a little like her most famous actress, Creator/ElizabethTaylor. There is debate among some historians if she was physically beautiful by Roman standards or not, but she's clearly lacking her famous large, hooked nose, as well as large eye sockets and thick neck.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Zizagged. She got this ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' with her assassination by Amunet being celebrated as an event in the Assassin Hall of Fame, as one of the great acts of {{Tyrannicide}} (ranking alongside [[TheKingslayer other Assassins who killed Kings and Conquerors]]). In truth, at the time of her death she was a popular and beloved monarch of the Egyptian people, and her defeat and conquest by UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} led to the loss of Egyptian independence, with the country becoming, quite literally, the personal property of the Roman Emperor. ''Origins'' for most of the early game paints her as a wise and capable ruler, and as a superior alternative to her brother but [[spoiler:she is also shown having dreams to subvert the Roman Republic and convert it into a monarchy with her son Caesarion as King. The latter derives mostly from xenophobic propaganda put up by Caesar's assassins and later Augustus in the run-up to her death, and historians note that while she had hopes of her son becoming recognized as a Roman citizen, the idea that she wanted to supplant the Roman Republic has little to no evidence]].
* IAmTheNoun: [[spoiler:During Cleopatra and Aya's last talk, when Aya proclaims that Apollodorus died for Egypt and for her, she states that "[She] ''is'' Egypt!"]]
* LastOfHisKind: Historically, Cleopatra was the last of the Ptolemaics, and the last of the Diadochi, i.e. the Hellenic Kingdoms set up in the wake of UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat. She reigned over the last independent Egyptian and Greek state for more than a millennium or so. [[spoiler:In her last words to Cleopatra before leaving her at the end of the game (but possibly not her last words to her period), Aya even calls her "the last of the Pharaohs."]]
* LesserOfTwoEvils: Bayek outright says she's just the better choice of two evils to Aya.
* MsFanservice: A classical depiction for Cleopatra in fiction and ''Origins'' is no exception: in her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment very first scene]], she pulls some moves on Bayek while wearing a very flattering dress with AbsoluteCleavage and VaporWear. Alas, he turns her down since he is HappilyMarried to Aya.
* PrecisionFStrike: Drops one during a particularly emotional rant when her grab for the Egyptian throne begins to spiral out of control.
--> '''Cleopatra''': I need a fucking throne!
* TheQueensLatin: Or rather, the Queen's Greek or Demotic, but she has a distinct English accent despite not being English. This might be ArtisticLicense since one of the few well-known facts about her was that she was the only known Ptolemaic who spoke the native Egyptian language fluently.
* SchmuckBait: She's introduced declaring that she'll let anyone sleep with her, on the condition that she gets to execute them afterward. Crowd chatter suggests this is ''not'' an idle threat.
* ShoutOut: The visual design of Cleopatra is quite similar to her [[http://asterixonline.info/wp-content/uploads/covers/06.jpg appearance]] in the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and Cleopatra'' album.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler:In her last meeting with Aya, Cleopatra tries to reassert her authority as queen over her former friend, only to be rebuked for her selfish actions which nearly led Egypt to ruin once more. Furious, Cleopatra [[TooDumbToLive tries to slap Aya]], only to be [[{{Foreshadowing}} stopped by her wrist while releasing her Hidden Blade]].]]
* ToThePain: When she learns about the twin priestesses' poisoning of the sacred bull, she threatens to have them [[CruelAndUnusualDeath boiled alive in a bronze bull]] before Bayek and Aya vouch that they were being coerced by [[spoiler:Hetepi, one of the priests of Anubis and a member of the Order of the Ancients]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:After Ptolemy XIII's death, the Order of the Ancients switch their allegiance to Caesar and Cleopatra, putting themselves into favorable positions by [[ManipulativeBastard appealing to their ambition to create an empire]].]]
* TheVamp: How Cleopatra is presented as, she is shown as a seductress who uses her body to seduce and corrupt men, like Caesar, and even tries to put the moves on Bayek when she first meets him. Loading screens even note she was a sexual predator or worse. [[spoiler:In the finale of the game after killing Caesar, Aya calls her "the dead tyrant's whore" to her face, in front of her own child.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether: Cleopatra states this.
--> '''Cleopatra''': Together, we can do more than [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat Alexander]] did.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:After serving Cleopatra for five years, Aya makes clear her disappointment towards her former leader and friend at their last meeting. Aya insinuates that their previous friendship and Cleopatra's child Caesarion are all that's stopping her from murdering the queen right away. She then warns Cleopatra to either be a responsible monarch for Egypt or be killed. This is taken to its logical conclusion when players realize that [[ForegoneConclusion as Amunet, Aya ended up killing Cleopatra for that very reason with a poisonous asp]].]]

The younger brother of Cleopatra, he wishes to become the sole ruler of Egypt.
----
* BrotherSisterIncest: Per history, he and Cleopatra were co-rulers by marriage until he usurped her.
* BullyingADragon: When Cleo makes herself known to Caesar, Ptolemy tries threatening him. Caesar doesn't seem even remotely bothered by it, but it still nukes any chance the kid had of maintaining an alliance.
* TheCaligula: Well he precedes his trope-sake as it were by a century, but the Boy King is a crazy puppet king who threatens to murder every last Roman in Egypt.
* ExitPursuedByABear: [[spoiler:While attempting to escape on a boat, Ptolemy is attacked and killed by two crocodiles.]]
* {{Expy}}: His voice actor sounds a lot like Creator/JackGleeson's [[Series/GameOfThrones Joffrey]], and the trailer describes him as "the boy king".
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: He was a real-life figure.
* SmugSnake: He thinks that as Pharaoh that he has the power to do as he pleases, when he's nothing more than a PuppetKing to the Order. When he tries to negotiate with and later threaten Caesar, Ptolemy doesn't realise that he was out of his debt.
--> '''Cleopatra''': Enough of the big words, little brother.

The Greco-Sicilian bodyguard and friend of Cleopatra.
----
Ancients]]
* TheBigGuy: He is Cleopatra's bodyguard and is noticeably one of the tallest characters in the game.
* BladeOnAStick: He favors a spear while in combat.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Apollodorus really was a loyal friend and follower to Cleopatra, though after he helped Cleopatra reach Caesar he disappeared from history.
* MoralityChain: He is this to Cleopatra, gently reminding her of her duties and promises to the people of Egypt. [[spoiler:Flavius and Septimius likely arranged his death in order to gain greater influence over the queen. After his death, Cleopatra's FaceHeelTurn becomes inevitable. Apollodorus was also one of Bayek and Aya's staunchest allies in the Egyptian court, making his death one of their biggest setbacks in changing Egypt for the better.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: He's completely loyal to Cleopatra, but doesn't always agree with what she does.
* PurpleIsPowerful: His outfit has purple and he happens to be a skilled warrior.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He dies near the end of the game due to getting ambushed by Roman soldiers, but not before telling Bayek and Aya about Flavius and Septimius heading to Siwa.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Phylakes]]

Elite agents for the Pharaohs who act as bounty hunters, hunting down Bayek when he sets off alarms.
----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Beating them individually usually nets you an awesome weapon or shield. Beating them all gives you access to their family's heirloom chest which contains... an outfit that looks cool but doesn't do anything otherwise.
* BonusBoss: They're extremely powerful opponents that roam certain parts of the world. The "weakest" is level 20 (but can wreck you in seconds even at level 30+ if you underestimate him) while the rest goes up all the way to the maximum level of 40. Their presence actually triggers a warning siren and a text message if you get within 100 meters of one. You can avoid the Phylakes if you prefer, but it's recommended to get rid of them ASAP because they drop some of the best items in the game and tend to join battles you're involved in out of nowhere in the worst possible moments as long as they're around.
* BountyHunter: Their profession.
* GiantMook: They're noticeably taller than Bayek.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Those ten guys are actually brothers, and even their sole sister was a peerless warrior before she decided to retire.
* KungFuProofMook: They have so much health that they can't be killed outright via Hidden Blade assassination. Depending on your blade upgrade level, it'll take off 60-70% of their health bar, so stabbing them in the back is still the best way to introduce yourself. Other assassin gadgets (smoke bombs in particular) work just fine as well and can turn an otherwise very difficult fight into a CurbstompBattle in your favor.
* ScreamingWarrior: Most of them will engage combat by yelling at the top of their lungs while charging you.
* ThickerThanWater: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Their sister doesn't really give a shit that you killed her ten brothers once you track her down and break the news to her. She outright says that the Phylakes had no honor, and gives you their family heirloom after you kill a bunch of crocodiles for her.
* VillainHasAPoint: As the first of their number that Bayek fights states, he and Aya ''are'' murderers, and the phylakes are just trying to enforce the law. [[RealityEnsues What right do even the Medjay have to be above the law?]]

!Roman Republic

[[folder:Julius Caesar]]
!![[UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aco_hr_ceasar_close_final.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Michael Nardone

->''"Caesar. The legendary tactician with the might of Rome at his back. His true motives are unclear."''

A general of the Roman Republic and eventual ally of Cleopatra.
----
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[spoiler:Harboring desires to become an emperor himself, Caesar becomes susceptible to Septimius' flattery, persuasion and offer of aid in the event the Senate refuses acknowledge his self-proclaimed ascension.]]
--> '''Caesar''': In the end, it is impossible not to become what others believe you are.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** At one point in the game, Caesar blurts out "The die is cast" when [[spoiler:he sees the Pharos of Alexandria lit]]. This is in fact a much debated BlindIdiotTranslation of "Alea iacta est" which is in turn a mistranslation of the original phrase Caesar spoke in Greek. What he really did say, is closer to "Let's roll the dice" i.e. let's [[IndyPloy take a risk and see what happens]] rather than we have crossed a threshold where NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** In one of the optional conversations you can hear between Caesar and Cleopatra, the former describes his hatred for Creator/{{Catullus}} and expresses contempt for poets and artists. The real Caesar was in fact a cultured man, who especially loved Greek drama, especially Menander ("let's roll the dice" was a CatchPhrase from his plays).
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: In one of the cutscenes he's shown as a formidable combatant and swordsman who latches a Jon Snow-esque killcount. [[spoiler:Unfortunately he becomes a cutscene boss in the finale]].
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:As it turns out, ''he'' is the "father of understanding" the Templars invoke in their oath for guidance, though he's also shown as a clueless puppet, and it's clear that Septimius and Flavius are the real leaders of the Proto-Templars]].[[note]]The actual "father of understanding" derives from Idries Shah's theory that Baphomet, the pagan deity UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar were accused of worshipping derives from Abu Fihamat, which is the Arab word for "father of understanding"[[/note]].
* BlingOfWar: He is shown wearing very shiny armour, including a breastplate.
* BadassCape: He's shown wearing red and purple capes in the trailer, and happens to be a legendary conquering general.
* HeroWorshipper: Of UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, based on the legend that he wept at his statue in Hispania (mentioned as Rome in the game). [[spoiler:He and Cleopatra visit his tomb, and Caesar laments how Alexander was a prodigy while he lost five decades of his life, blooming late]].[[note]]It's certainly true that Caesar was a late-bloomer but that had more to do with him being a victim of political persecution at the hands of Sulla Felix, who screwed him out of his normal career-path, forcing him to start at the very bottom to ascend the cursus honorum i.e. the Roman political ladder[[/note]]
* HistoricalBeautyUpgrade: Caesar has a full head of hair when he had a receding hairline since childhood and was balding (something he was quite sensitive about, being that he was [[TheDandy incredibly vain]] and sensitive about his appearance).
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade:
** He got this in the lore of the Dagger of Brutus taking the conventional view that Brutus killing him was an act of {{Tyrannicide}}. In actual fact, Caesar was a reformer who aimed to improve the lives of the Roman poor, the Roman Republic was a corrupt oligarchy that had brutally and unconstitutionally murdered reformers for nearly a hundred years, and Brutus was a corrupt LoanShark who stabbed Caesar more or less to become another warlord rather than restore "liberty".[[spoiler:And unlike the finale of ''Origins'' which leaves his ambitions for tyranny unambiguous, historians insist there's no real evidence that Caesar was aiming for tyranny]].
** A good example is how the game frames his pardon of [[spoiler:Lucius Septimus, which the game frames as his FaceHeelTurn. In real-history, Lucius Septimus disappeared from the pages of history with no record as to what happened to him. It was Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw's play ''Caesar and Cleopatra'' which showed Caesar pardon and sparing him, which was there presented as a heroic and noble gesture, but here shown as the reverse. Caesar did have a record of pardoning and sparing his enemies in history, and he did that to end the partisanship and purges of the Roman Empire, of which he himself as a young man was nearly a victim at the hands of the dictator Sulla Felix, who killed many of his family's relations and friends, and would have killed him had his mother not vouched for him]].
* LoveAtFirstSight: [[spoiler:For Cleopatra, he's taken by her looks and her audacity, and indeed he tells everyone to leave the room while he conducts "[[IsThatWhatTheyAreCallingItNow private congress]]" since he has to interview both the Ptolemies. While real historians debate how much this was true of their relationship, the game presents their feelings for each other, at least on Caesar's part, as genuine]].
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He has a low opinion about women in battle. This causes him to entrust the task of signalling his fleet to Bayek only, while [[UnderestimatingBadassery deliberately ignoring Aya]]. After Bayek hands the task over to Aya, Caesar berates Bayek for the decision until the signal is lit. [[spoiler:When Aya kills Caesar within the Senate, he appears to have forgotten her despite having met her several times. This shows that he still had a low opinion of women in action despite his personal experience.]]
* SilverFox: The game depicts him as a well-built older man with a full head of white hair, but still fairly attractive, which probably helps explain the MayDecemberRomance he has with Cleopatra.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Through Caesar, Septimius and the rest of the Order had plans to control the Roman Empire once it is established, much like how they controlled Egypt through Ptolemy XIII.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He has a somewhat subdued rant during his death scene, during which he regrets being unable to fulfill his ambitions, declares his wish for Roman rule to last forever, and [[DefiantToTheEnd defiantly tells Aya that Cleopatra will never fall to her or any other assassin]].]]

* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: The real Pompey was known to be good looking as a young man, but was known to have become an ugly older man at the time of his death. His appearance in the game is a major update, with him looking like a man in his late thirties or early forties rather than the middle-aged man he was at the time of his death.

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's a child, but he's surprisingly deep.

[[folder:Kensa]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Nicole Stamp

A friend of Bayek's from Siwa turned gladiatrix at the Krokodilopolis arena.
----
* BashBrothers: She and Bayek fight side by side in the arena.
* CoveredWithScars: Her face and upper body are covered in tribal scarification patterns.
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:If she sees Bayek when he tries to kill the Crocodile, she'll admit she always felt it was her destiny to die by Bayek's blade, and tries to make that happen.]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Goes around barefoot.
* FacialMarkings: Apart from her scars, while in the arena her entire upper face is covered in white facepaint.
* GlorySeeker: Her primary concern is glory, [[spoiler:even to the point that she's willing to work for the Crocodile even after learning that Bayek had come to Faiyum to hunt for her.]]
* TheHedonist: As far as she's concerned, glory in the arena and money are all that matters, and it's implied she and Bayek clashed in the past over the latter's more idealistic worldview.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Uses a hide shield in tandem with her sword.
* MadeASlave: She reveals to Bayek that when Ptolemy came to Siwa, Lucius Septimius took her as a slave but she managed to escape, eventually ending up at the Krokodilopolis arena.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Bayek. [[spoiler:She eventually goes to work for the Crocodile as a guard/enforcer. If she sees Bayek when he tries to kill the Crocodile, she'll admit she always felt it was her destiny to die by Bayek's blade. Despite this it is possible to avoid killing her like one would any other guard.]]

!Trials of the Gods

[[folder:In General]]

A series of four optional battles against incarnations of Ancient Egyption gods. Succeeding in all of them unlocks a legendary Anubis-themed outfit for Bayek in addition to the four pieces of equipment he gains by defeating the individual gods.
----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Similar to the Phylakes, completing the whole set of trials rewards Bayek with an outfit that doesn't do anything but look cool. Fortunately, the individual trials offer [[InfinityPlusOneSword far more useful gear]].
* ArbitraryMissionRestriction:
** While you're free to bring whatever gear you want, bows are the only weapons that can actually deal damage to the gods themselves (though your melee weapons can kill the mooks the gods summon, which in turn damages the god). Since the targets are pretty far away from you, imprecise ones like warrior bows or light bows are largely useless, thus restricting your choice to hunter bows and predator bows. It also means that anyone who's over-reliant on [[LimitBreak Overpower]] attacks is in for a hard time.
* AttackItsWeakpoint: So far, the only way to damage the ones that have appeared is to shoot a huge glowing sphere in their chest with arrows.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Egypt's ancient gods are far and away the largest enemies in the entire franchise. Only their upper bodies from the waist up are sticking out of the ground, but even then they tower at least fifty feet above their surroundings.
* BonusBoss: Nothing forces you to do battle with them, and they don't figure into the story at all, but they're a blast to fight, give decent amounts of experience and gold, and drop some of the best gear in the game.
* BraggingRightsAward: Completing all four trials takes at least one real-world month due to the way they spawn in-game. Since it takes about 60-80 hours to achieve OneHundredPercentCompletion of ''AC:O'', by the point you've acquired the last of the Trial rewards, you probably won't have anything left to use them on. Compounded by their level requirement of 40, which means you won't be able to even attempt any trial until you've already completed roughly 80% of the story.
* BreatherBoss: Ironically for representations of actual gods, they're a lot easier to defeat than almost any other BonusBoss the game has to offer. That's not saying you should take them on below level 40, but their attacks are extremely telegraphed, show exactly where they'll hit, and are very easy to avoid. The only challenge you might face are the {{Mook}} waves, and even they go down just like all the others you've faced by that point. [[TropesAreNotBad The battles are still epic and one hell of a lot of fun regardless.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: If you emerge victorious, you actually just defeated an incarnate Egyptian god single-handedly.
* FlunkyBoss: Prepare to repel two to three waves of powerful level 40 {{Mook}}s during the battle, all the while the god is still throwing his own attacks your way. Killing those mooks actually damages the god further.
* AGlitchInTheMatrix: Fighting actual gods is beyond even this franchise's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, so their presence is explained as glitches in the Animus systems.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: The trials can be repeated as often as you want until they despawn, which means you're free to deploy the gear you just gained from defeating a god against him during the rematch.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: The equipment dropped by the gods is among the best gear one can acquire in the game. Anubis' Conductor of Souls is an almost literal example.
* MarathonBoss: No other boss in the game takes nearly as long to defeat as them. 10-15 minutes per battle is a reasonable time frame if you know what to do.
* PlayEveryDay: Each trial is active for one real-time week before another one takes its place. Ubisoft promised that all four trials will show up again sooner or later in case you missed one.
* ShowsDamage: Their TronLines glow ever brighter the more damage they take, and sections of their bodies break off.
* TronLines: Golden ones, specifically. They glow brighter and brighter the more damage the god suffers.
* TurnsRed: Their attacks become more frequent and increasingly dangerous at certain health thresholds (usually in 33% intervals).
* UnfriendlyFire: Their summoned mooks can be hit and damaged by the gods' other attacks just like Bayek, which can be exploited with some clever positioning once the red target markers appear on the ground. If you have the health to spare, you can even chose to tank an [=AoE=] attack on purpose, then take advantage of the fact that Bayek recovers from knockdown much faster than enemies do [[KickThemWhileTheyreDown to get some easy hits in]].
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: As they are Animus glitches, Bayek does not react or comment on them since these battles never occured in his life.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anubis]]

The jackal-headed Ancient Egyptian god of the dead. He appears in the northernmost part of the Great Sand Sea.
----

* ActionBomb: His (potentially) most dangerous attack sics waves of [[IncendiaryExponent flaming]] hyena spectres on Bayek that charge him in a straight line. If he doesn't manage to evade their following pounce, they explode and deal heavy damage. It starts out with two hyenas per attack cycle and goes up to six when Anubis' health falls below 33%.
* CastingAShadow: As befits the god of the dead, his personal attacks revolve around projecting darkness and shadows.
* CoolSword: Defeating him unlocks the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Conductor of Souls]], a glyph-encrusted peerless murder machine that comes with high-level [[CriticalHit Critical Hit Rate]] and Combo Multiplier boosts, topped off with the ever-useful [[LifeDrain Life on Kill]] ability.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sobek]]

The crocodile-headed Ancient Egyptian god of water and fertility. He appears in the swampland of Heraklion Nome, a region of the Nile Delta far to the northeast.
----

* DishingOutDirt: His attacks are based on manipulating the ground itself, like summoning shockwaves through the earth or exploding puddles of boiling mud.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Pelting him with arrows is the only way to damage Sobek. If you gave Bayek the ability to add arrows that hit his shield to his own quiver, you can effectively defeat Sobek by shooting his own RainOfArrows back at him.
* RainOfArrows: He starts summoning them once the second phase of his battle begins. Escaping the affected area in time is nearly impossible, but thankfully the arrows can be blocked with a shield like those of human archers.
* StaffOfAuthority: Defeating him unlocks the Was Sceptre, an item frequently depicted as a symbol of power in the hands of various Egyptian Gods (most prominently Anubis).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sekhmet]]
The Lion-headed Goddess of War, Healing and the Sun. She appears in the desert south of Egypt.
----

* FrickinLaserBeams: She fires giant lasers from her Sun Disk at Bayek.
* LightIsNotGood: Much as in mythology she is a sun goddess with access to light and fire. She uses both to burn your ass.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: She gives a unique shield, that emphasizes her role as protector goddess.
* PlayingWithFire: She shoots fireballs from her hands, and ignites areas around her.

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Beating them individually usually nets you an awesome weapon or shield. Beating them all gives you access to their family's heirloom chest which contains... an outfit that looks cool but doesn't do anything otherwise.
* BonusBoss: They're extremely powerful opponents that roam certain parts of the world. The "weakest" is level 20 (but can wreck you in seconds even at level 30+ if you underestimate him) while the rest goes up all the way to the maximum level of 40. Their presence actually triggers a warning siren and a text message if you get within 100 meters of one. You can avoid the Phylakes if you prefer, but it's recommended to get rid of them ASAP because they drop some of the best items in the game and tend to join battles you're involved in out of nowhere in the worst possible moments as long as they're around.
* BountyHunter: Their profession.
* GiantMook: They're noticeably taller than Bayek.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Those ten guys are actually brothers, and even their sole sister was a peerless warrior before she decided to retire.
* KungFuProofMook: They have so much health that they can't be killed outright via Hidden Blade assassination. Depending on your blade upgrade level, it'll take off 60-70% of their health bar, so stabbing them in the back is still the best way to introduce yourself. Other assassin gadgets (smoke bombs in particular) work just fine as well and can turn an otherwise very difficult fight into a CurbstompBattle in your favor.
* ScreamingWarrior: Most of them will engage combat by yelling at the top of their lungs while charging you.
* ThickerThanWater: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Their sister doesn't really give a shit that you killed her ten brothers once you track her down and break the news to her. She outright says that the Phylakes had no honor, and gives you their family heirloom after you kill a bunch of crocodiles for her.
* VillainHasAPoint: As the first of their number that Bayek fights states, he and Aya ''are'' murderers, and the phylakes are just trying to enforce the law. [[RealityEnsues What right do even the Medjay have to be above the law?]]
