I don't know if this has been brought up yet or not, but why does Edward not have the eagle beak hood?

Anything else you guys have noticed about him that don't seem right?

I dunno, why did they remove the scar from lip ? why did they drop the eagle names ?? it doesn't mean anything....no significance whatsoever, but everyone making a big deal out of it for no reason

This. Also add Aveline with "no hood? not an assassin" crap. I mean really, who gives a damn...

Eagle isn't a big deal?! Are you listening to your words you speak! Eagel vision, the 6th sense!
It's almost as important is the finger branding :DD

Not really...eagle vision is eagle vision. an extraordinary sense that some people with twcb genes posses ...what does that have to do with eagle beaked hoods and scars ?? branding fingers is an Assassin tradition, has the beaked hood been mentioned as such ?? Nope...

04-23-2013, 02:32 AM
True. I just thought there may have been a good discussion I missed. My guess for the lack of beak in the hood was bc it hinders the assassin's range of vision. Not the best thing when it comes to steering a ship.

Ezio, Desmond and Altair had scars, but meh...

Eagle Vision was probably named eagle vision because Alta´r was sometimes referred to as "the eagle of Masyaf". After that it was just a nod to his lineage. Really Eagle Sense could just as easily be called Sixth Sense or First Civ Vision or something like that.

The real reason behind the removal of the beaked hood is probably because Desmond is gone now and Ubi want to move away from plot elements that were directly tied to him. Which is a little problematic because Edward, as far as we know, is still related to Desmond, so it seems an odd place to stop. If Edward wasn't in any way related to Desmond, it would make more sense to remove the eagle symbols.

WHAT IF it's just because he doesn't fully accept his role as an Assassin in the Creed until the end of the game...Fine I'll wear a hood, but I'm wearing mine..and at the end of the story he says something witty, smiles pulls up a beaked hood and takes a leap of faith *cue eagle sound* credits
That is what im hoping for :D

kind of thinking the same thing, sure i read somewhere that edward wont always go along with the creed, probably no beaked hood to emphasise he's different from the others

Shao Jun had a beak-less hood too. I don't think the lack of hood ornament (heh) is a huge deal, but I did like it as a sort of symbol of the series. Especially when it made an appearance on Achilles' hat. It was sorta... I dunno? Endearing? Anyway, if it were up to me, he'd have it. I don't think its anything more than a design choice, though. Nothing to really read into.

04-23-2013, 05:14 AM
It does bother me to some degree. I never liked the way Aveline looked either. Sorry but in my opinion you just can't look all that cool with a tri-corn hat. I just feel that the rest of Edward's outfit is pretty cool and I just feel it would look just that much cooler with the beaked out. It's just lost potential in my opinion. Every time I look at it I notice it. Oh well. It's too late to complain now I guess.

Let's name everyone eagle and let's give them all scars because the players are probably stupid and won't understand they are Desmond's ancestors and let's give them beaked hoods because they're named eagle and then suddenly introduce a wolf boy but he still has eagle vision ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

I think he looks awesome. There may be story reasons for why his hood looks more home made. The other assassins inherited their outfits from the order. Edward seems to be more of a loose cannon.

You are worrying for the hood?He looks more badass with that non-beaked hood.Also,I am worrying about the holster,the hip guns look so stupid without them lol.
And seriously,I don't think any character in AC actually reffered the sixth sense as 'Eagle Vision'.

I always liked the symbolic links between ancestors like the Eagle-like names, the beaked hood and the scar. I wouldn't mind if they used the eagle motif for just Altair and then moved on to something new but they followed it through having Ezio have all these links and then just stopped. It seems weird to set it up as if it's going to be a recurring thing and then abandon it. I don't know why he doesn't have a beaked hood. Beaked hoods are awesome and look way cooler than normal hoods.

There is nothing badass about a normal hoodie. -_-
Beaked hoods are where its at! :D
Edward is such a panzie having a normal hood..black beard was being sarcastic telling his tale on the trailer LOL

That's what I'm gonna do once I complete the story with Edward's normal outfit. As a tribute to the best Assassin ever, Alta´r.

But seriously !! is the beak an issue ? i mean he has a white hood and Assassins blades which bear the emblem, i would be more pissed if he did not have the hood, albeit the old thread wear is the Assassin emblem on his robes because Ezio and Connor has it on their sashes ? as long as he has the white hood, Hidden blade and the red sash ( very menial ) then thats an Assassin the beak is a not a big issue, in actual fact i think Edwards robes are awesome.

It's a tradition. His outfit will be on all Assassin's Creeds, because it was he who was the first Assassin you played, and it was so successful. So it's a tribute to him.

Edward will not have a beak on his hood , the gameplay videos and character reveals have confirmed that. and as Human Towel said Edward is a pirate Altair's monk like robe's would not exactly fit the picture of a 17th century Scallywag of the seas.

That didn't stop them from giving them to a native American in the same century.

I really don't see why this is such a big deal... it's a hood people! It would be different if he didn't have a hidden blade. I could have sworn clothing doesn't make the assassin.

at the end of the day I'm sure Ubi will throw in an unlockable Ezio outfit and everybody will stop complaining and be happy again. Ezio is back! -_-

I'm not going to write him off though..technically Ezio was just a recruit too..but he inherited his hood.
The same can be said for Connor, but he actually kind of earned it in a way.
This basically means that through the majority of the game Edward will be proving himself. Almost as if this game is a test. Which leads room for a spin off ;)
And I'd venture to say he travels to Africa in search of the apple Assassins Creed: Genesis !!!!

Maybe because the said robes weren't constructed by the Native American but given to him by a proper assassin, same as Ezio and Altair. I have a feeling Edward's one would not be given to him by anyone but self-made. Hence the lack of beak.

A beak on a hood does not make you an Assassin. Its your allegiance, ideology, and initiation what makes you what you are.
