Assassin’s Creed III: A New Age, A New Hero
When the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 came out, there was mass speculation to who the tomahawk-wielding protagonist was. Many people rightly pointed out the obvious hints pointing towards him being of Native American heritage. Low and behold, the clues weren’t red herrings. Here’s what Ubisoft have to say:
“Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage.
“Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.
