Every Main Character In An Assassin’s Creed Game, From The Worst To The Best:
The games in the Assassin’s Creed series have taken players all over the globe and back in time. As the Assassins try to stop the Templars from taking over the world, we’ve gone to Ancient Egypt, Renaissance Italy, the American Revolution, among other times and places.
People think Assassin’s Creed is one of the most effective video game series because it lets you explore an open world in different ways, has an original perspective on history, uses sneaking and direct fighting well, and has a story that keeps you interested.
But the games wouldn’t be as good without their main characters, who each have their own story to tell and learn about. But not all of these main characters are as fun to hang out with as the others, so we’ve put them in order from worst to greatest below.
We’ve had the opportunity to play some really interesting roles along the way. Whether it’s a leader of a gang in Victorian London or the last defender of the Pharaohs, the player characters in Assassin’s Creed always give interesting views into the games’ stories and histories.
Now, let’s put the Assassins in the whole series in order from worst to finest. There are some surprises in these breakdowns, so be warned.
All 18 Main Characters In Assassin’s Creed Games:
Below, we have ranked every main character from the Assassin’s Creed series from worst to best.
With each entry, we’ve described why we chose it that way. We’ve tried to follow the fans’ general agreement on who is best as well as who is worst, but we’ve also added our own opinions and emotions.
Basim from Assassin’s Creed: Mirage isn’t on this list yet because the game hadn’t come out yet when we wrote this. Based on what we’ve seen in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, though, he would be above Eivor and give Ezio a run for his money if we were forced to place him on this ranking.
Ezio Auditore, the main character of Assassin’s Creed II as well as several other games in the series, is our choice for the best Assassin in the Assassin’s Creed games.
Others may be stronger than Ezio, but no one can beat him as a figure and person. Ezio is an Italian nobleman who lives during the Renaissance. When his father as well as brothers die, this sets him on the road to becoming an assassin.
When Ezio leaves the city, he goes after the people who killed his family and kills them. Unknowingly, he runs into the Assassins through the way. He is finally able to get revenge for the deaths of his father and brother when he gets accepted into their order.
In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Alexios is a single of two main characters you can choose from. The other is Kassandra. Even though he’s a great fighter, his words don’t seem very interesting, and he sometimes sounds like he’s not interested in anything.
If he plays Kassandra, he turns into the bad guy, making him a little more interesting. But aside from that, he doesn’t seem very interesting, and he also doesn’t seem to get along well with the other characters.
In the first Assassin’s Creed game, we played as Altar ibn-La’Ahad, who was the first Assassin we met.
He was a master at what he did. He was taught by the Brotherhood to fight against the Templars, which included killing his very own teacher, Al Mualim, who had become the Assassins. It was seen from the point of view of an animal.
Altar started his story in a cold, uncaring way. He killed his first two victims without doubt or regret. But as he listened to the dying men’s last words, he grew as a person. By the time he met Al Mualim, he was smarter and more aware of himself.
A lot of things were missing from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Eivor was one of them. Basim and Sigurd, on the other hand, were more exciting than them.
Even though they are mostly truthful and have clear goals when dealing with those who are Hidden Ones, they lacking that “something” that differentiates people like them.
Even though Eivor is more chill than the male form, she doesn’t stand out from the other main characters. Not only that, but the images of their faces looked weird.
Edward Kenway was a pirate Assassin who showed a lot of resistance to becoming a Assassin in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. In the end, he decided to join the order and fight in opposition to the British Templars, who had attempted to take over the Caribbean.
Even though he got caught up in the fight between the two groups, Edward’s main goal was to become famous and wealthy.
He wanted to do this by finding the legendary Observatory. But after losing a lot of friends to the same drive, he decided to change and be more loving father for his daughter.
Freedom Cry is a separate add-on for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag that features Adewale. He was Edward Kenway’s Quartermaster at first, but he finally joined the Brotherhood. In Black Flag, I liked how serious he was, but in Freedom Cry, I thought he was too rough around the edges.
In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Kassandra was Alexios’s sister and, in the official story, the main character of that game. Her story is very similar to that of her brother. When she grew up, she became a warrior in Ancient Greece and worked to destroy the Cult of Kosmos.
Similar to Alexios, Kassandra may rescue her brother or sister from the Cult if the player has made the right decisions. This twisting path that players continue to learn regarding leads to a good life alongside their family far from the fighting as well as chaos of the core game.
In Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Layla Hassan was the main character in the current world. In Odyssey, she looked a little bit fuller. But her selfishness and lack of consistency, along with her arrogance, made her difficult to like in Valhalla later on.
These are mostly because she spent so much time in the Animus. Even though we nevertheless like her, it’s hard to fall for a figure who is meant to be hated shortly after some point.
In Assassin’s Creed III, the main character was Connor Kenway, a Native American Assassin who went through the Revolutionary War. Haytham Kenway, who was his father, was a very important Templar person. This made his birth a bit strange.
Because of a loss in his own life, Connor possessed an intense need for justice as well as the will to see it through. During the American Revolution, he was involved in a lot of things, but he stuck to his beliefs even when they put him at odds with friends.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which takes place during the French Revolution, had Arno Dorian in it. His goals and hobbies are never clear, even though he is the main figure.
His attitude before he became an Assassin was a bit like that of Ezio’s. But compared to Ezio, he got boring and boring over time. Without the open world of Paris, Arno’s story would have made Unity too hard to play.
Evie Frye was in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate with her brother Jacob. While Jacob was more interested in taking steps to get rid of the Templars’ power in London, Evie focused on getting the Shroud of Eden, a powerful object that could not fall into Templar hands.
Jacob was careless and quick to act, but Evie was more steady and thoughtful. She was a firm believer in the Brotherhood’s lessons. Unlike her brother, she liked to do things in a quieter, less obvious way, and she used careful planning as well as smart moves to reach her goals.
Aveline De Grandpre:
Aveline was brought up into a rich French-African family within New Orleans. She is the main character of Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, which came out on the exact same day as Assassin’s Creed III but was later split to give it a distinct personality.
When she sees how slaves within her city are treated unfairly, she becomes determined to stop slave trade and protect them. Even though she was born into a rich family, the Brotherhood hired her because she was so committed to saving slaves and making sure they stayed free.
She is liked because she learns how to obtain what she wants. She changes her clothes to fit her needs and uses the people around her to help others. She is so much like the Assassins in so many respects that it’s too bad she only played in one game.
Shay Patrick Cormac:
Shay Patrick Cormac was an interesting character in the Assassin’s Creed series. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, he is the main character. Even though he started out as an Assassin, he joined the Templars when he accidentally caused an earthquake in Lisbon.
Shay’s reason for betraying the group was that he couldn’t work for an outfit that had let him cause so much death and damage for no reason. This gives rise to the just Assassin’s Creed game in which the Templars are the good guys and the Assassins are the bad guys.
Jacob is a member of the Frye twins. His sister Evie was in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. Even though he is not as smart or clever as his twin sister, Jacob might be the most fun main character in the series. Because of how cocky and charming he is, it’s fun to watch him cause trouble and kill Templars on the streets of Victorian London.
Bayek Of Siwa:
Bayek of Siwa served as Medjay, a defender of the Pharaohs, and he showed in Assassin’s Creed Origins. He is thought to have been the first real assassin. After his son was killed, he went on a mission to kill the people who did it. This was the Order of the Ancients, which later became the Templars.
Bayek as well as his wife, Aya, started the Hidden Ones, a prototype of the Assassins, to fight against the Order.
He was additionally able to get back at Flavius Metellus, also known as the Snake, for killing his son. Even today, players still enjoy the side missions in the game. It’s just the main plot.
Desmond Miles serves as the modern-day hero of the first five Assassin’s Creed games. The Templars force him into the Animus so he can see what his ancestors were like.
At first, he seems cautious about who he talks to, but after he meets other Assassins, his personality becomes more interesting. In Assassin’s Creed III, where he plays a more important part and gives his life to save the world, he really stands out.
His personality probably should have died sooner than it did, but he didn’t stay around too long for people to dislike him. So many games are played with him that it’s hard not to care about him.
Alexios, the grandson of King Leonidas I in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, was an experienced soldier who fought in the Peloponnesian War if players picked him at the beginning of the game. He worked to destroy the Cult of Kosmos, a group that came before the Templars.
Alexios spent a lot of his time as an assassin, but he changed when he found out that his sister was indoctrinated by the Cult of Kosmos. After that, he tried to stop the Cult by going all over Greece and killing its leaders.
In the early parts of Assassin’s Creed III, you can play as Haytham. As the Grandmaster of the Templars, he is a lot more than what meets the eye. He was very different from his dad, Edward, as well as son, Connor, in terms of personality.
He’s not as happy as Edward, but he’s a lot better than Connor. His attitude is a bit like that of James Bond. He is both good and bad, which makes him an interesting person.
In addition, his friendship with Connor showed us that he had mixed views about him. But you couldn’t say the same thing about Connor.
Haytham is a missed chance in the eyes of every Assassin’s Creed fan. A whole game about this interesting and difficult man might have been much more interesting than what players received with his grandson and son.
Aya Of Alexandria:
Before her part was cut short, Aya was meant to play a bigger role as the main character in Assassin’s Creed Origins. But in Origins, she stole every scene she was in.
Her exchanges alongside Bayek, Cleopatra, and other people show that she is a strong-willed person who is very clear about what she believes in.
This makes her start the Hidden Ones, which is the group that came before the Assassins Brotherhood, as well as gives her the name Amunet. It’s really too bad that we didn’t get to see more of Aya’s trip.
