In the ninth assassination, at Majd Addin's funeral, a Templar woman takes Robert's place. I only know she's named Maria from wikiquote. But how do we know that's her real name? Any legit/official sources where her name is mentioned?

I don't think 'Maria' was so important.
That's why we didn't get her name or any specifics on her (or so I like to believe).
The empfasis wasn't on who she was, but on the fact that she was a woman- later Altair comented on that while talking to Malik. I'm waiting to find out why Robert chose a woman to take his place- I think they'll elaborate on this and other riddles from AC1. But this really is mindbougling...
And just doesn't make sense- Robert chose a sacrificial lamb/impersinator who was a chick?
No ofence ladies, but why would a 2 meter tall frenchman chose a woman to dress in his armor, fool his enemies? SHE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THAT BODY STRUCTURE!?!?!?!

2 meter blond chicks grow everywhere in the holy land, assuming the holy land is beverly hills.

Maybe he couldn't think of a better way to dump her.



Anyway, she's named Maria in the official game guide. Had some thing about how Robert was forward thinking enough to be totally chill with the idea of having a fighting woman around (and apparently everyone else was some degree of incredibly oblivious to the fact she was a woman) from what I remember reading.

It's a book.

I don't have it on me at the moment or I would say something more definitive. >_<

Thanks a lot desonnac but I did a search for that on RS search engines and TPB. I just didn't want to post the links, for fear it may be against forum rules or something. My RS account is expired (and Free User DLs are a pain). So I have to DL from TPB cause I lent my hard copy to a friend who never gave it back.

Damn, I've been searching all over but I think I finally found it in a forum somewhere... waiting for this guy to send it- I'll give a link as soon as I find the WHOLE manual
(I can't believe finding the game manual is harder than downloading it illegally)

I appreciate what you're trying to do. Really, there's no need. ETA's like 10 minutes max. And u could get into trouble with the mods.

I always thought that when I purchased a game I could make an account at the game company's site and DL anything I needed in case I lost the physical medium. Last week, I downloaded the PC client for StarCraft from Blizzard's new Battle.net

She was in Altair's Chronicles on DS.

Apparently. (haven't played it, but have heard this from multiple reliable sources)

lol, once my brother finally realized Maria was a women (and not Robert) he stared at me, stared at the com, stared back at me and said:
"DAMN! She fight's like a BEAST!"
I found it very amusing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

lol yeah and she shouts and curses at you while she's beating you. I always like how her shouts sound when she's shouting inside her helmet.
and believe or not, I felt something suspicious the first time i played the assassination. when the guy who's preaching/leading the prayers is talking and when "robert" walks up next to him, her body language isn't that of a man, i think at one point she even holds her hands together. I thought to myself "Is that supposed to be Robert?"

The whole time her hands are being held together except for when she is directing the Templars to walk out of the shed right before preacher exposes you.

She's an interesting character: a tomboy. She's even more interesting considering there's so few women in AC1 and the first generation of AC titles.
I hope they somehow find a place for her in AC2 and/or second generation titles.

Also worth mentioning - she has a noticably more feminine voice when you're fighting than Robert did.

And yet Altair somehow managed not to notice this while fighting her...

It would be more hilarious if the Animus randomly started singing Still Alive and GLaDOS turned out to be the animus tutorial software before she got upgraded.

Animus: "If you reach the final memory, there will be cake."

Shaun Hastings: No, seriously, there's a cake in the conference room, you twit. Hurry up and steal Vidic's new access code so you can get us some, that old bugger never gives us a lunch break, after all our hard work!

Inexperienced enough in the forums and AC research to have not heard of Kaxen before now.

alkarnur
09-16-2009, 02:29 PM
then no I'm not new. I have read many of Kaxen's comics before, she probably remembers when I made a comment once thinking she was a guy. But it's only now that I actually noticed that I didn't let her know how funny her comics are.

@Marta: thanks, if u still have the original pic you used why don't u send it over (like imageshack link or something) and I'll see what I can do. You're going for a mysterious, intriguing, a bit dark approach to the Empress, right?

Description:
It's night. The Empress is in her garden (kind of like Al Muallim's garden). She is next to a pool/fountain and the moon light is glowing and reflecting off the waters onto her face and the wall behind her. The inscriptions on the wall are Arabic calligraphy for "la shai' motlaq, kul shai' masmouh" ("nothing is true, everything is permitted").

I liked this scene, think I'm gonna make some fan fiction about it.
