     The Carpenter 

The Carpenter (John O'Brien)

An Irishman of solitary nature, John O'Brien sought to start a new life in America, because he found his liberties to be continually challenged in his homeland. He is at heart a kind man, but years of persecution at the hands of the Templar Order have made him prone to lashing out when provoked.

  • Bayonet Ya: His muskets have them.
  • The Brute: His style in combat appears to primarily hinge on brute force.
  • The Butcher: His Champion's Pack costume is called this.
  • Cold Sniper: Two of his alternate weapons are muskets.
  • Drop the Hammer: The weapon he is standardly equipped with.
  • Expy: After the Blacksmith and the Bombardier, appearing in Brotherhood and Revelations respectively, we now have the Carpenter, John O'Brien, as our new go-to-guy for brutal, hammer-related killing sprees.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: His temper tends to act up when faced with the Templars.
  • Nice Hat: You can give him a particularly nice fedora.

     The Commander 

The Commander (Matthew Davenport)

A British military officer that served during the American Revolutionary war and a member of the Templar Order.

     The Coyote Man 

The Coyote Man

A social recluse, the Coyote Man would fight tooth and nail for Templar interests, primarily by hunting the eastern coast of America for Assassins. One of his major accomplishments was killing an Assassin Mentor with his bare hands, or so the rumors go.

     The Governor 

The Governor (Bernardo de Galvez)

     The Hessian 

The Hessian (Gerhard Vonstatten)

A Hessian soldier that was in the employ of the British Army and a member of the Templar Order, Gerhard Vonstatten was an individual that relished in the violent chaos of war. He would follow orders without hesitation, never considering defeat as an option.

  • Ax-Crazy/Blood Knight: Stated as "standing out" in his appetite for war and also being "an unstoppable killing machine" that carried out his orders without question. Aside from his bloodlust, there seems to be little else to the character. This is supported by his biography, which describes him as having "virtually no personality to speak of".
  • Bayonet Ya: His infantry rifle has one.
  • Beard of Evil: Not by default, but he can be given one.
  • Blade on a Stick: Two of his alternate weapons.
  • Cold Sniper: Wields an infantry rifle as his standard weapon.
  • Germanic Efficiency

  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: One of his custom kill animations have him throwing his rifle at his target, who will awkwardly catch it, before he gets some quick punches in. As his target falls, he snatches back his rifle and fires a bullet straight through their brain, finishing the job.

  • Sociopathic Soldier: Seems to be a Type II.
  • War Is Glorious

     The Highlander 

The Highlander (Duncan McGill)

Duncan McGill was a Scottish highlander who ended up in the colonies after being exiled from Scotland with little more than his sword and the clothes on his back. While McGill did not care much for the conflict of the American Revolutionary War, and also didn't have much of a favorable opinion of the British, he took up his weapon to scupper the Templars' ambitions in the New World, due to his great loyalty to the Assassins. As a result of this, McGill became the subject of folk tales, under the nickname of "Red Rage Duncan."

     The Huntsman 

The Huntsman (William de Saint-Prix)

An Assassin born into a wealthy family of French descent, William de Saint-Prix was educated on the most diverse of subjects. Because of his nobility, he was rejected by revolutionaries, though he garnered the respect of his Assassin peers through his courage and intelligence.

  • Badass Beard: A goatee vaguely similar to Ezio's.
  • Badass Longcoat: His promotional render definitely exudes this.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: His Champion's Pack costume gives him a mouth-covering scarf similar to that of the Nightstalker.
  • Cultured Badass: As a noble, he received a good education on a very large variety of subjects, particularly excelling at science and literature. This knowledge allowed him to craft weapons and develop his own fighting style.
  • Expy: Aside from his assassin-like predecessors, the Prowler and the Sentinel, he's also a bit evocative of Ezio Auditore, being a member of a nobility and a man of privilege who became an assassin. He even resembles Ezio a bit physically, having the same type of build and a similar goatee.
  • Hooks and Crooks: Uses a hook as his Weapon of Choice.
  • Knife Nut: Two of his alternate weapons.
  • Nice Hat: He wears it over his hood.
  • Royal Rapier: Two of his alternate weapons.

     The Lady Maverick 

The Lady Maverick (Gillian McCarthy)

An orphan, Gillian McCarthy relied on her many talents to escape the life of the streets, seducing herself up the social ladder so that she could better protect herself and her younger brother, and became a Templar in the process. Many powerful men fell for her charms, allowing her to learn their best guarded secrets.

     The Macandal Bodyguard 

The Mackandal Bodyguard

     The Mountebank 

The Mountebank (Victor Wolcott)

A British doctor shrouded in mystery and a member of the Templar Order, Victor Wolcott was well-known for his experiments, fascinated by biology as he was. He would also brew various potions and medicine, some of which were rumoured to keep the patient from the brink of death.

     The Nightstalker 

The Nightstalker ("Joe")

A mentally unhinged mercenary that would roam the streets of London at night, instilling fear into the populace. His true name is unknown, with "Joe" being a nickname he was given after one of his victims was heard shouting the name before they were murdered. Secretly a dedicated member of the Assassins Order.

     The Pioneer 

The Pioneer (Emily Burke)

A tomboy at heart, the Irish Emily Burke had difficulty adhering to the typical expectations of her gender at that time. When her father and brothers were lost in the war, Emily abandoned all pretense and relentlessly hunted down anyone she believed to have been involved in the loss of her family.

  • Action Girl
  • Badass Cape: A half-cape similar to the kind worn by Ezio.
  • Badass Native: Has the appearance of one in her Champion's Pack outfit, "The Wild One".
  • An Axe to Grind: Two of her alternate weapons.
  • Bayonet Ya: Her musket features one.
  • Braids of Action: One of her hairstyles.
  • Evil Wears Black: In her Dark Costume obviously, but her Champion's Pack outfit also has a lot of black in it.
  • Friendly Sniper: The musket is her standard weapon.
  • Irony: Despite having been on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the Templars in her time, she would later become an Animi Avatar for a Templar training program.
  • Knife Nut: Two of her alternate weapons.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her alias of "Calamity Mily."
  • Nice Hat
  • Pistol-Whipping: Her default musket kills usually involve bashing the target's head in with the hilt. One of her custom kill animations has her striking her target in the back of the head, sending them tumbling to the ground, before firing a musket ball straight through their skull.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After her father and brothers were killed by Templars during the Revolutionary War, she would kill any Templar she considered to be involved with their deaths.
  • Skirt over Slacks
  • Tomboy
    • One of the Boys: Deconstructed, as her bio says that the expectation for her to be a Proper Lady (as was to be expected during that time) was something she had a hard time adjusting to as a result of her tomboyishness. She put up with it though, until her father and brothers were killed, at which point she abandoned the pretense.
  • You Killed My Father: By the Templars, hence her feud with them.

     The Preacher 

The Preacher (Federico Perez)

A preacher of Spanish descent and member of the Templar Order, Padre Federico Perez was unwavering in his faith and saw it as his duty to "cleanse the land of sinners". Which usually involved killing them. Dealing out death as often as forgiveness, he travelled the lands in search of those who needed his 'guidance'.

     The Redcoat 

The Redcoat (Eleanor Mallow)

A devoted member of the Templar Order, Eleanor Mallow was the daughter of Commander Matthew Davenport, secretly carrying out missions against the Assassins for him. Young, strong and malleable, she was considered the fascist type that the Templars like.

  • Badass Cape: Gets one in her Champion's Pack outfit.
  • Badass Longcoat: Also a part of her Champion's Pack outfit.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • The Baroness: Sexpot variety, though not as much as the Lady Maverick.
  • Bayonet Ya: Her musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters.
  • Cold Sniper: Two of her secondary weapons.
  • Daddy's Girl: Since there's no mention whatsoever of her mother, one can assume that she didn't play as large a role in Eleanor's life as her Templar father, who regimented her life in a military fashion and carefully made her into one of the Templars' more capable members.
  • Downloadable Content
  • Knife Nut: Two of her alternate weapons.
  • Military Brat: Explicitly called a brat in her in-game biography.
  • Nice Hat: Buckets of hats to choose from, most of them tricorn ones.
  • Royal Rapier: Her standard weapon.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Averted. One would expect her to do a more adequate job of concealing her gender, when hiding amongst her father's troops, but the trope never comes into play; she wears her hair long and the uniform itself does little to hide her curves. Fridge Brilliance, since Erudito's hacked version reveals that she wasn't hiding her identity from her father at all, rather she would carry out specific, Templar-related missions for him.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: One of her alternate hairstyles.
  • Whole Costume Reference: Her Officer alternate outfit has her resembling (perhaps fittingly) the Officer Teodor Viscardi from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

     The Robber 

The Robber (Fillan McCarthy)

As an orphan, Fillan was forced to learn the ways of the streets to survive, becoming a skilled thief while his elder sister, Gillian McCarthy, climbed the social ladder through seduction and manipulation, so that she could better protect him. Not wanting to be a burden, he broke ties with her and now lives each day as it comes. In actuality, it was because his sister joined the Templars, Fillan joining the Assassins soon after.

     The Silent Shadow 

The Silent Shadow (Atasa:ta/Chogan)

An individual of Mohawk descent, Atasa:ta was raised away from his tribe by his father, learning many skills necessary to survive in the wild. When his father was killed by Templars, Atasa:ta started roaming the cities as well, jumping at every opportunity to exact vengeance upon them.

  • An Axe to Grind: Uses a tomahawk in battle.
  • Animal Motifs: Several eagle references throughout his character.
  • Badass Native
  • Badass Cape: Has a large variety of them.
  • Bald of Awesome: Although he does have something resembling a ponytail as his default hairstyle. Or it's a really elaborate bunch of feathers.
  • Bayonet Ya: His musket is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters.
  • Blade on a Stick: Two of his secondary weapons.
  • Braids, Beads and Buckskins
  • Friendly Sniper: Two of his secondary weapons.
  • Expy / Shadow Archetype: He is quite similar to Connor, both being individuals of Mohawk background whose loss of a parent at the hands of the Templars and their associates prompts them to wage war against them. They even both use a tomahawk as their main weapon and have two names each, their Mohawk name, and a more easily pronounceable name.
    • Whole Costume Reference: One of his unlockable outfits has him donning a hood and a cape that's similar to the Sentinel.
  • I Have Many Names: He went through several name changes during development, which eventually ended with the three he uses now, Atasa:ta being his Mohawk name and Chogan and Krynn most likely being ones he adopted for convenience, like Connor. Before this, he was known as Atasa:ta The Kryn. His multiplayer title also went through several changes, at first being the Black Bird, which then became the Shadow and then turned into the Silent Shadow.
  • In the Hood: In his Warrior costume.
  • Irony: Despite being the son of an Assassin with a hatred for the Templars, his genetic memories end up being used in an Abstergo project.
  • Nice Hat: His Champion's Pack outfit gives him a tri-corn one.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Stated as "always looking for a chance at revenge" after his father was killed by a British Officer.
  • You Killed My Father: A British Officer, hence his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
    • According to an Erudito hack, it was actually by a Templar raiding party.

     The Sharpshooter 

The Sharpshooter (Caleb Garret)

Described as "a master of all things guns", Caleb Garret joined the American Revolutionary War and the Assassins after he witnessed his friends being buried alive by Templars. Thanks to his expertise with weaponry, he could protect his team with deadly efficiency.

  • An Axe to Grind: Two of his secondary weapons.
  • Badass Beard: Can be given one.
  • Badass Cape: Gets a nice, fur-lined one in his Champion's Pack outfit that is similar to that of the Count from Revelations.
  • Badass Longcoat: Always dressed in one of these, except for the above outfit, "the Minuteman", where he exchanges it for a cape.
  • Bayonet Ya: His hunting rifle is equipped with one like the other gun-wielding multiplayer characters.
  • Friendly Sniper
  • Downloadable Content
  • Expy: Visually, he looks a lot like a certain Mr. Marston. Or The Man With No Name, if you will. His name and backstory are close to another wide-brimmed-hat-wearing sharpshooter named Caleb...
  • Knife Nut: Two of his secondary weapons.
  • La Résistance: Fights in the Revolutionary army. Referenced in his Champion's Pack outfit, which is the outfit of a minuteman.

     The Strong Man 

The Strong Man (Nukilik)

An Inuit Chieftain, Nukilik is dedicated to the safety of his people, willing to travel countless miles to aid them. Despite his large stature, he demonstrates both strength and agility, making him an especially large threat at close range.

  • Badass Native: An Inuit Chieftain.
  • Bayonet Ya: His muskets have them, including one that is a dagger tied to the rifle rather then an actual bayonet.
  • Blade on a Stick: He wields a harpoon as his specialty weapon.
  • Braids, Beads and Buckskins
  • Friendly Sniper: Two of his secondary weapons.
  • Gondor Calls for Aid: When he learned of the plight faced by his kin who lived in areas affected by the Revolutionary War, he went out of his way to journey all the way over there and help them out, aiding the Revolutionaries in the process.
  • Historical Fiction: Erudito's hacked version of his biography rather frighteningly suggests that Nukilik and his backstory - a cliché underdog story, according to him - were completely fabricated by the Templars and that he never even existed during the period of the American Revolution.
  • Knife Nut: Two of his alternate weapons.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Described as one.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His title is the only one that singles out and defines one trait: his strength.
  • Nemean Skinning: Like the Bear, his Champion's Pack outfit has him donning the skin of a polar bear.
  • Nice Hat: Many.
  • Odd Name Out: Most of the titles for the multiplayer persona encompass their overall character. Nukilik, on the other hand, is a leader, journeyman, and warrior, but his title is the very straightforward and specific "Strong Man".
  • Only One Name
