what do you think his personality will be?

do you think he is half-african, half-middle eastern (algerian?) or is he frenchman

do you think he will be calm, collected, like altair or sort of brash like ezio...

Likely isn't Arno..thats kind stupid. Not french. Likely misheard.

Arnaud is likely what it is, pronounced "Ah-NewAHD"

Probably it should be spelled Arnaut.

I bet he's going to be a good for nothing who spends the days drinking cheap wine, eating smelly cheese and frequenting dirty brothels.

His fighting style consists of headbutting, Zidane style.

Since he's French the game is going to be pretty short, in the beginning of the first sequence he surrenders and the game ends.

I think he may be even more of a womanizer than ezio or maybe that would be too much of a French stereotype...maybe if he is but is presented as more ignorant/sexist than Ezio. Ezio was a womanizer but likable, Arno should be a little more arrogant and maybe even sort of a duche and develops into a more humble person when he loses everything in the Revolution?

I feel an upper class character in a Revolution would bee too similar to Ezio losing everything being raised as a noble. I think this character would make more sense to start as the opposite. desperately poor from birth, knows first hand the suffering of the poor before the revolution, Instills the anti noble thoughts in his head to support the commoners in the Rev, falls in with the assassins by being taken in by a master after parents die of starvation or something. This is really speculating and probably wayyyy wrong but a protagonist like this would be fresh and interesting.

I hope we're completely off the mark in regards to the name...it's pretty lame in my opinion. Although, I likely would dismiss it if he's an awesome protagonist. I think it's likely he's an upper class, established Assassin by the time the revolution starts. Ubisoft wouldn't be so predictable to have him be a poor, common revolutionary citizen who finds 'hope' or whatever with the Assassin's. I expect him to play both sides - as in the monarchy and revolutionaries. In the name of the order of course. it would be cool to have the Assassin walk the moral grey line between the monarchists and revolutionaries, they were both 'bad' in some aspects I believe but I'm not entirely sure.

But Alex back to what you were saying. I feel the same way! no more Ezio anything. He had it's time. IT'S DONE. lol. But know that leaves me to wonder what kind of background he will have because we have now done Rich Noble, Poor Nothing. So maybe he will be in middle.

I also wonder how the creed will effect his life. Like will he already know about it or will he stumble into it like Eddie.

Nothing really it just sounds weird to me... a little boring. A silly personal gripe.

Anyway why on Earth are you proclaiming such a thing at this time? We have absolutely nothing to base his character from. I thought Edward was a perfectly original protagonist and before that we had Connor so what makes you think they'll create Dudebro101?

I did a little research and it should be Arnaud or Arnauld, that name comes from the German Arnulf or Arnold, which is composed of the Germanic elements arn "eagle" and ulf "wolf".

It can also be used as a surname.

I don't really know why giving a bit of carefree trait is a problem, though.

First, Edward was not a womanizer at all lol, apart from that first CGI trailer, nothing on the game implies he was. On the contrary, Mary asks him not to tell people he had someone. I think he was pretty much loyal but the game barelly touched on that. His motivations to provide a better life for his family spoke for itselt.

And I sincerely cracked a smile at some of the lines Ezio had, it added a lot to his character. I don't think it worked against him, on the contrary, it gave him personality.

Both him and Edward had some kind of very light hearted humor which made them relatable or someone who seemed to be fun to hang around, despite all of their problems. Lord know AC3 needed a bit of that too *runs away*

ze_topazio
03-20-2014, 12:26 AM
I don't like to call Ezio a womaniser because that has a bad connotation, it implies he was tricking, cheating, double dating, maybe even forcing, Ezio never did that, he was pretty honest, all the girls he got were very willing to do it too, I prefer to say he was a ladies man.

Totally AGREED!!

It seems to be a the personality trait AC writers fall back on, and it's limiting most of the potential character development that could occor. Ubisoft should remember not all gamers want to see overt womanzing to the point were it's too much like Ezio running all over the map to sleep with women it was just irritating.

The leaker obviously has connections but considering some basic stuff he's not total sure "like whether it's Paris AND London or just Paris" suggests he's not THAT close to project. It's possible the PS360 old-gen separate game will get London while next-gen gets Paris

Yes! I thought of the same thing when I saw him oddly enough! So I'm assuming that with Arno, we will not be using hand to hand combat as much? or maybe it won't be as effective! I really do think we will see a new way of fighting! it will be interesting. :D (and if we do... oh well we do!)

He could have stolen them like Edward, of course, but usually they try and work pieces of the character himself into their default outfit (like how Connor's was pieced together from colonial and native elements and Edward's had piratey stuff he added over Duncan's outfit) so I doubt he's just a commoner running around with a stolen robe.

I hope they keep him slim and lanky like in the leaked screenshots. Though going by the poster-on-the-wall picture they already beefed him up ?

Probably just the opposite, he was beefier in the concept art on the wall but they trimmed him down for the in-game render.

Yh I think it would be cool to make him a higher class guy who is helping the oppressed. btw one little thing to do with the pic... I wonder why they made this guy wear eyeliner? I mean Edward wore it too because he was a pirate (stopping glare from the sun) but this guy too? I guess it makes him look more mysterious. Im not against eyeliner btw i wear it myself.

None of the core limits stated in AC1 apply to the franchise anymore, they already by passed everything by inserting more and more plot devices and objects to showcase whatever memory/event they felt like, regardless of age or children of the person in question. And they did it for straight characters lol.

I don't care about the sexuality of any of the characters, but the Assassin the players play as can't be gay if he's an ancestor. At most he could be Bi. The others characters could be of course but does it really matter?

Don't see how the character's sexuality would add to the game's story/gameplay in any way. Just sounds like a thing people would want for their own personal interests/beliefs.

But like I said I don't really care either way.

I would prefer if they kept the descendant thing, the sci-fi aspect of the series is becoming more and more ridiculous with each new game, now anyone can play other people genetic memories, then is high capacity memory seals, then the shroud, then info taken from bones and finally the animus becomes so advanced that you just need to type the person's name on the tablet and you can play his memories out of nowhere.

I think it would be very interesting to see a person "immune" to the animus. :eek:
Imagine the upset and frustration he/she would cause if it was a really important person and the Templars wanted to gain access at all costs.
or maybe the Assassins developed a drug that made reading memories impossible. It could taint your DNA after a certain time had passed outside your body rendering it useless.

Makes no difference to me. I don't really want a character's sexual conquest and lifestyle to be a major plot point of a game no matter their sexual identity.

But back on topic I suppose, my feelings on Arno are mixed.

I like the "Garret" look, but at the same time I kinda hate it. I will wait until I see fully textured, current build version of him before I make any real comments.

And as far as Paris..I love the location, and it seemed like there was some SERIOUS architecture in the background there..but I hope that those pics were during a build where they hadn't finished putting in all the base models for the buildings..because lack of NPCs aside..it looked way too... open..to me.

I think having a gay main character would be too much of a risk for Ubisoft, but other than that, why even bother doing it? Why touch this subject at all? Most people are straight, it's only normal most characters will be too. Being gay doesn't change anyone's character and often feel forced if done wrong, so there's really no point other than pleasing a handful of people in my opinion.

How about showing diversity? How people of all the different combinations of colors, backgrounds, cultural heritage, sexuality, gender etc can share same core Assassin value of freedom?

Culture, color, and ethnicity are one thing. Some are more on the touchy subject than others, however. Hence why stuff like homosexuality is the subject of much debate in many countries. I'm not going to voice my stance on the matter (to avoid controversy) but to many developers it could alienate consumers of the franchise and hurt sales.

But it doesn't mean it's impossible. The Last of Us did that via DLC.

I will say adding something to a franchise for the sake of adding it is a bit needless if it's not adding to the story/gameplay in any way.

It's still a risk. There's plenty of ways the series has been showing variety without touching this subject. It's still a touchy matter, which can clearly be seen by the reactions caused here. And if it's not done properly, it can end up displeasing everyone - those who wanted, those who didn't care.

I, for one, do not feel the need for a gay assassin just because. If they do it, great. If they don't, won't make a difference to me. Does it really matter if the character sleeps with man or woman?

But... what difference would that make, really. "Now I want a gay assassin." "I want a vegetarian assassin." "I want an assassin who have lots of sex with animals.". I don't think that's relevant on its own and that's what I said. There's tons of ways they can develop interesting stories without having to define the person as "gay" or "straight".

What if someone came up now and said Adewale was gay? Would it make any difference? What about Connor? There's not one trace of sexuality on Connor, so being straight was that much of a problem that the series needs a break from it?

All of the assassins so far have peculiar traits which sets them apart. It's really offensive to think simply being gay is enough to give him that special character. Perharps one day Ubi will find a proper way to use this to tell a story, but wishing for a "gay assassin" just because it would be cool... I don't think they will do it.

As long as there is a meaningful story to tell, being anything, be it gay or bisexual, doesn't matter. Look at TLoU: Left Behind. It tells a beautiful story of two people caught between a cold, relentlessly brutal dystopian world, finding humanity and purpose within a natural, beautiful human relationship. They just happen to be two teenage girls, it's just there - no big deal. It doesn't focus on sexuality, it's just a touching story about two humans.

So if they are gay, it doesn't matter. Just focus in the story at hand. Ubisoft wouldn't create a story around someone's sexuality anyway, but if they did - just think of it as a story assessing the themes of acceptance and discrimination of unconventiality. Because that is precisely what it would be.

But that's not the case, 95%+ video game protagonists are white straight males. Ratonhnhaké:ton was only 1 Assassin in the main game partially not like this, in 1 game out of 6 main games.

Yeah, you can buy her a proper assassin outfit (which look way better by the way), but it's still not her default so every render will make her stand out more than she should, like on that otherwise badass picture with the Assassin who dress like someone else right next to the Assassin who doesn't want to be one and gets his family murdered by the Brotherhood.

Lol, that was such a bizarre scene. Why the hell would she run out of the house naked RIGHT IN FRONT of the people she was trying to avoid being seen by? And the best part is her boyfriend just casually strolls out in his tightie-whities like "Sup, playas?" :p

Think we found the Independence War version of Barney Stinson :p (maybe and ancestor of him :D )

I always imagined Connor as asexual (no offense :D ).
No seriously, his personality is SO neutral often, I could even believe that.

I am sure he would be interested in women (though he could of course also be interested in both :p) but I think sex and love might not be such a big topic in his culture, at least during such troubled times.
And he personally grew up with great responsibility in his village, and like a warrior later on (trained by Achilles). I just don't think this thought is on his "priority list". Unlike Ezio who grew up differently and also didn't have any urge in his fight for revenge.

As for Altair, he also did only fall in love later on in life. He was always straight-to-the job as well.

He's making sure it's safe for her to run into the woods. Never know when you'll run into a patrol of angry redcoats or a nest of rabid raccoons. :P

You can't be serious!

Did you totally miss in the beginning of AC3 when Achilles introduced Connor to Boston and as soon as they stepped out of the cart Connor was checking out a women, before Achilles told him to stop.


Also let's not forget this moment either, when Connor checks out this women:

I feel an upper class character in a Revolution would bee too similar to Ezio losing everything being raised as a noble. I think this character would make more sense to start as the opposite. desperately poor from birth, knows first hand the suffering of the poor before the revolution, Instills the anti noble thoughts in his head to support the commoners in the Rev, falls in with the assassins by being taken in by a master after parents die of starvation or something. This is really speculating and probably wayyyy wrong but a protagonist like this would be fresh and interesting.

I really like that.

Wasn't Connor about 10 in that scene though? He didn't know what he wanted.

What's there to talk about Arnauld really? This discussion is destined to touch all the other assassins for comparison's sake. In fact, we are investigating a potential sexual relationship between the 2 assassins :p.

Yeah he was about 17 or so, and he was just helping someone who happened to be a woman. Like most men, maybe he just has a soft spot for helping a woman in distress per se, maybe? He cares all the time, anytime for anyone in distress, no matter the gender :)

…. And I would seriously like to know why Connor said he'd give her the "first crack," whatever that means. *nervous gulp*

Connor obviously inherited his perverseness from his father. In Forsaken it says Haytham told Charles to leave so he could have some bow-chika-wow-wow time with Ziio despite hardly knowing her. :rolleyes:

It was so obvious that what he really wanted was to get spanked by Charles Lee again. No wonder he was obsessed with finding him.

I hope Connor and Arno kiss just so people can finally be happy to have a gay assassin for whatever reason they think that's important.

Haha! Yeah I thought the same! It's like the women just was startled by the sudden appearence of Paul and Connor and she just up'd and left running out there.. maybe she didn't really care that these two men saw her.

Let's just say...Connor saw that women and he liked what he saw. ;)

What you're saying..people who are work focused are asexual - isn't that a huge generalization.. I know you meant know harm by that comment.

Connor's personality is like an ocean, there is many layers to his personality that do require you to look though at the surface, into the deep,

I'm half Mohawk, I'll let you know that we are like everyone else - when it comes to premarital sex, the choice is between the couple and it's more about the person/s morals and not so much their tribal culture. We value Love and spiritual companionship. As for Connor's reasons to be more focused on his goals more a higher importance than finding love was more of a personal choice his own morals. Like I said in another thread, Connor always had his feet on the ground, he was a decent guy, no doubt a gentleman.


He's making sure it's safe for her to run into the woods. Never know when you'll run into a patrol of angry redcoats or a nest of rabid raccoons. :P
Since Connor would most likely be the gentleman, he would appear to be looking out for her on the surface but it's just the way Connor's walking and his body language when he sees her that tells us really he's like all men with desires.


He thought he saw Charles Lee
Connor saw some cleavage on the women of course ;)
.

Totally Agreed! Just loved those scenes! :D

When Connor first saw Boston he was 13/14 and Connor became an assassin by the age of 14/15 just to give you a time scale. We know what happens to us at that age, so no doubt that Connor would have been curious at the sight of that girl he saw in Boston at that time.


People seem to have confused the title of this thread as "Let's talk Connor"
Well it's because we don't know enough about Arnold, to talk about him only speculate.


…. And I would seriously like to know why Connor said he'd give her the "first crack," whatever that means. *nervous gulp*
Dobby gave me the cougar impression, kind of creepy. Poor Connor. :(

If I was Connor I'd have married her in an instant. Thankfully I'm not Connor, and so the world was saved.
I have a quick fan fic idea for that.. Connor desperately looks for the women as he is enthralled with her overwhelmed with lust... that;s it I'l stop there it was going nsfw. ;)


He knew what he TRULY wanted, he just didn't want to proclaim it to the world.
To be fair Connor spoke to several people in the game, he told them he didn't have the time currently to devote his time for a women, but he would like to in the future.
