Arno Dorian, the Assassin’s Creed Unity protagonist, often receives mixed feelings from fans, but is actually one of the more likable characters in the franchise despite his tragic backstory. Here are four reasons why Arno is the best Assassin’s Creed assassin. Keep in mind, this is a list about Arno as a character and not a look into Assassin’s Creed Unity as a game. Also, major Assassin’s Creed Unity spoilers ahead!
His Skills Surpassed His Mentor’s
Arno became acquainted with Pierre Bellec in a prison cell after becoming falsely imprisoned for murder. Bellec realized that Arno had Eagle Vision and decided to train him in the ways of the Assassins. After their escape from prison, Bellec helped him find the Brotherhood and start the next chapter of his life. Arno later discovered Belle killed Mentor Mirabeau and fought his former mentor and friend. Bellec was bested by his former student and praised him for his skills overcoming his own. This was a huge feat, since Arno was still fairly new in the Brotherhood and had just defeated a Master Assassin.
