My Assassin character idea for further games

Hello, i was very happy to find a website like this, where i can share my ideas for future games and characters. I havent played early games but i learned the story through searching.


In this topic i would like to suggest a different kind of Assassin. The idea will be very similar to Rogue yet totally different in terms of motives. 

Through the games so far, we have seen many kinds or Assassins. Serious ones like Connor, Freedom fighter like Adewale, gang creating Jacob. And we have also seen Assassin's turning Templars like Shay. Haytham was in Order since early ages however he might fit into this.


Yet one thing i never saw in an Assassin and thought it would be amazing to have a character with it was : Mental Disorder


I imagined an Assassin, going insane because of a certain experience, or maybe having the issue since birth. He gets thrown out from Brotherhood and is haunted down. He sees things that do not exist or he confuses who the enemy was. Confusing who is the enemy and who is the friend is very important as it would demonstrate the similarity of Order and Creed. This character would kill both sides thinking they are both wrong. Through his arc he would kill many friends accidently, but at the end of it, he will be healed of his mental illness and kills himself for the things he has done. Or maybe he decides to become a Hunter like Shay but he hunts both Assassins and Templars, thinking their fight over the ancient weapons and their involvement in history is killing everything.


It might not need a mentally unstable character to question those things however in my opinion having one would make it much more interesting. I wanted to share this here, it was in my mind for a long time.

    I think Assassins Creed: Schizophrenia (lol) wouldn't work for a number of reasons. For one, Ubisoft doesn't want to offend everyone and painting any specific mental disorder as an uncontrollable serial killer without a cause is probably likely to get more than a little backlash. Also, if we are being honest, all the playable assassins as is have been mentally or emotionally scared in some way, likely to leave trauma. But if you really want some people going completely berserk, we already have them. Just look at anyone heavily affected by the bleeding effect (Daniel Cross, Clay, etc) So in conclusion, personally I am admittedly not a big fan of this idea and I just don't see it working very well in the end, of course, that's just me though. Anyone else is welcome to leave their thoughts.

      Valid points, though this would only work if a really good scenario is written. Otherwise it would be like you said a man killing randomly. And i doubt ubisoft has any will for that yet. :)

      Ig we follow with the bleeding effect, why not having the game with an unstable protag be abt that unstable dude in present days revisiting his ancestor past to help him find and eliminate both templar and assassins in present days, if that makes sense? So instead of potentially insulting/harming anyone with mental disorders, the in game lore would be the actual cause.

    This literally sounds like Jack the Ripper. He was an Assassin, that's why he has a hidden blade and various Assassin tools and skills.

    Long before there was any idea of AC Unity(Likely when AC Brotherhood was first announced.) I once written a story of an Assassin named Andre going through intense torture in Bastille by a group called "The Legions", eventually losing his mind, he escapes the prison after the famous Bastille raid, and declared dead. Andre was an old French intelligence operative during his pre-French Revolution days and quite resourceful enough to go toe to toe with both Assassins and Templars. His first targets in his struggle to uncover who the Legions are being also the members of Templars, Andre gets an invitation of recruitment from Assassins and sits with the idea of having allies being adventageous. Little did he know was that The Legions was an organization which is a cross between both Assassins and Templars, so that he found out he has to kill some Assassins too. Little did Assassins know that Andre was bat shit crazy and completely off the rails in a way that he wouldn't hesitate to kill one of them. :D Assassins, completely unaware of the existence of a collective called Legions and their members being also members of Assassins, starts clashing with Andre, just like Templars and Legions themselves. Key point in my story was that Andre was so tortured enough to the point where he turns into a killing machine, an incarnation of the concept of fury. I also had planned him to have a daughter called Elise that he learns about much later on and her trying to bring his human side back out. Andre also had a side kick named Eduardo, a thief from the Cour des Miracles that looked a lot like Arno and had a relationship with Andre's daughter. Ed and Elise eventually joined up with Assassins and reconciliated Andre with the Brotherhood as they eventually carved their way to Legions' ranks and found proof of their existence. So Assassins were convinced Andre didn't slaughter their kind for no reason. (Not that Andre cared about their opion but he still saw advantage on siding with them.) I planned Andre to wield the Shroud of Eden at the end of the story. Going into the final fight againsts a lot of enemies alongside the big bad all by himself... Andre was planned got hit, slashed, shot at so many times but get healed by the Shroud over and over until he can finish them off, repeating the same torture he went through in the prison. Mentally turning into a mad animal during the fight, going full berserk. Like Kratos of God of War while killing gods, I wanted Andre to be as brutal as possible. But well, then years passed and I never got to translate my story to English. And now Ubisoft already has a French Rev. AC game. :D

      God, this website needs work, all my organized paragraphs just got disappeared and my comment looks like big pile of something I'd never wanna read.

      I read all of it, as the idea was very interesting. If it was a book, i wouldnt hesitate and buy it. Really liked the idea of Legions but that sounded more like a Templar thing. I also imagined Andre and it really looked similar to mine except Andre knew who he was killing. Mine would probably would not know who he was killing until he killed them. This would create guilt and regret which would also torture him but from inside. Fantastic work.
