Playing as Alexios should also be canon.

I understand that more people like playing as Kassandra than as Alexios, but since the game is meant to be an RPG it kinda feels unfair to me that only Kassandra’s story is canon. I just think that it shouldn’t matter which character you choose to play as because role playing games are all about choice and while there still has to be a storyline that connects to the wider assassin’s creed universe I just feel that the canon story takes away from Odyssey that freedom of choice. Does anybody know what I mean and feel the same way?

    You logic lacks sense, but even without your attempt at a justification, how would that make sense? You'd write the same story twice, but with different names and pronouns? That's silly. This is Ubisoft's fault. There should never have been two sides of the same character. It was obvious it would lead to confusion and of course they would eventually have to choose one. But back to you. When you play other RPGs, do you also ask that your fully customized character becomes canon? No. Same thing. Actually, it's not. Alexios and Kassandra are not characters, they don't have different personalities. The only things that change are the voice, the gender and the look. Their story is the same, so they are more like avatars than they are characters. Sorry, but you'll have to deal with it.

    I believe it’s players choice which is canonical. Just as it’s players choice as to who they play as.
