I don't know far you're into the story but I'll be the buzz kill.

You're using Desmond's DNA.

Character's not related to Altair obviously, but his name is Faceless Camera. Middle name Floating.

In the game there are the initials of his name, can not remember where. Maybe AL.

It's You. It's what explains the first-person view of Abstergo.

I didn't realize I didn't have any hands.

I believe it's supposed to "us". However...

SPOILERS: (I don't know how to do the spoiler tags, guys) I noticed that when you get injected with whatever it was that the "Sage" injected you with, the grunt that "you" make sounds like a grunt made by a man. And if it's supposed to be us, then I doubt that female gamers make grunts like men when being stabbed in the neck with a needle. Could just be an oversight though.

I noticed that too! I'm not a woman, but I was still pretty upset when I heard the grunt. Would of preferred the protagonist to be quiet no matter how unrealistic it would have been.

But it's not "us". It's just a faceless floating camera character because Ubi was lazy AF. It's a dude, obviously because of the sound effects heard, just a floating faceless camera dude. Also doesn't have hands. Last time I checked I had hands.

That was just slightly annoying, Ubisoft not catering to the women in Abstergo! :p

Interesting about the grunt. I hadn't noticed that.

But I have the faint impression I got a hint I was a female (which I am in real life). lol Now if only I could remember why I got that impression! O_o (Maybe they guessed I'm female? Maybe there's an Abstergo camera spying on me through my TV? Maybe it's Maybelline?)

Blah, hands are overrated.

Forget bodies, I want some interactions! I miss those side conversations. AC:IV's side characters did not get enough screen-time so I would of appreciated some side converse, but nope. Not even in Modern Day. Can't interact with anyone and can't even choose our gender. Nope, nope ,nope.

Even thought they said the main character is supposed to be me, i never even once thought of him/her as being me, those diaries entries didn't help, i would never write such thing, as far as I'm concerned the faceless character is an actual character.

The grunt notwithstanding, they were very careful not to make any direct references to your character's gender. Even the bathroom mirrors are cloudy, and your security pass lets you into the men's and ladies' rooms equally. The only other clue I've found is that John from IT refers to your "tender body" when he's lamenting that Juno wasn't able to download her consciousness into you -- and he's just the type of skeevy stalker who'd use that term to pay a compliment to a woman. I suppose it would also make sense that a female AI would prefer a female body but that's not dispositive.

I wonder if they will have the modern character be related to our next protagonist?

Remember Otso Berg? At first they told us we were playing as a nameless/faceless Abstergo trainee in ACB/ACR mulit but then suddenly, through AC Initiates, BOOM! It was revealed that was Otso Berg all along. So as far as I'm concerned this "Tester" may get a name, a voice and a face in the future.
I also believe we play as this "guy" in AC3 Multi and AC4 and maybe in AC Liberation too. The hacker from AC3's epilogue and possibly from King Washington is a different person. But that's just a conjecture on my part.

Technically speaking we are all related...everyone of us has a gene in our DNA that links back to the same one woman... (This has been scientifically proven)

Not in the AC-verse, though. First of all, humans were artificially created by TWCB and also remember what Tinia said in Revelations.
"And when the ash had settled, less than ten thousand of your kind still lived... and far fewer of ours."
