Have you done any traveling?

Assassins. Though they come from all walks of life and lived in different times, they all share one common goal: to live in the dark to serve the light They work to preserve artifacts from our ancestors, the pieces of Eden.
Today you’ll take your first steps into the animus and relive the events of one assassin and their journey through their genetic memories, but first, we need to determine whose lineage you are most compatible with. This will only be a few short questions, so bear with us while we assess you.
Please remember to click the answer you wish to select instead of the blue arrow buttons, as this will lead to incorrect or unstable results.
For your first question, we’ll keep it nice and simple. Have you ever traveled outside of your state/country?
Do you prefer nature over the city?
So you’ve seen more than what is outside of your bedroom window. That’s good. Knowing about the world outside and what wonders it holds will give you an advantage should you need to know your surroundings.
Not everyone enjoys the outdoors, however, and it is just as important to learn the urban jungle as well as the one with ferocious cats and man-eating plants. That all said, do you prefer nature over the city?
Do you value family?
The bonds one forges with family are unbreakable, even when you fight and you don’t always see eye-to-eye. Family means you stick together through the good and the bad and you come out stronger in the end.
We know this isn’t the case for every family. It’s an unfortunate side effect of today’s society. Nonetheless, it’s important that we ask you this: do you value family?
Would you think of yourself as charming?
As an assassin, it is important to have a certain charisma about you. You’ll need to be able to talk to people in a number of different manners. Of course, you can always take the violent route and beat someone for information, but we aim not to make things too messy unless it is absolutely necessary.
To be sure that you can keep matters as simple as possible, we must ask: do you think of yourself as charming?
Do you believe in destiny?
Some people know what they want to do in life from a young age. They study, practice, study more, practice more etc. until they’ve mastered their craft. Nothing else has ever been important to them than that one thing.
It’s okay if you’re unsure – a lot of assassins are and have stumbled along their journeys while they discovered themselves, but have you always known what your life calling is?
Do you prefer weapons over hand-to-hand combat?
Every assassin is given a number of tools and weapons along their journey to help them complete their objective. From hidden blades and swords to smoke bombs and guns, the technology has all been harnessed and utilized to make your job easier.
Before we send you into the past, we would like to know your fighting style. Do you prefer fighting with a weapon over getting your hands dirty?
Have you ever suffered the loss of a loved one?
Life hands us the occasional punch through the heart and takes someone dear to us. That loss can shake us to our very core as a human being, and we drag ourselves through the grieving cycle. While some people choose to handle their anger by taking it out on others, some choose to close themselves off and persevere. Whatever method you choose, know that you aren’t alone.
For the sake of this test, however, we must ask you: have you ever had to cope with the loss of a loved one?
Do others think you are childish?
Some assassins in the past have been known for not taking themselves too seriously when they ought to. This, of course, doesn’t necessarily make them bad assassins, just a bit more challenging to reel in once they get going. You could call them childish for their lack of attention or disregard of the rules in general. They may also be selfish and attention seeking, but that’s the price we pay for quick-witted one liners and comedy relief, right?
We think it’s important to have a bit of a childish side from time to time, so we ask you: do you consider yourself to be childish?
Do you practice good study habits?
Before we let you into the animus, we need to be certain we can count on you to complete the objective without attracting too much attention. We have Abstergo to worry about, after all.
This includes information on your targets as well as any allies they might have, maps, secret documents, and other such important details. These sorts of things should be committed to memory and burned so that you leave no trace of yourself.
So we need to ask you, do you prefer to analyze and study over rushing headlong into a situation?
Is romance important to you?
Leading the life of an assassin is no easy task. Taking care of a spouse and family is even harder. Traveling can put strain on a relationship, but it may also make the bonds between you stronger. After all, it’s pretty nice to have someone at the end of the day that will love you and take care of the undoubtedly bloody mess you are.
And so we have to ask: is having a romantic relationship important to you?
Is it easy for you to tell right from wrong?
We’ve all twisted the rules at some point to better suit our needs, but how far are you willing to go for the lengths in which you might need? The Brotherhood has set rules and restrictions for a reason, and being a part of this effort means you are dedicated to them as well.
We need to know that you’ll have no trouble adhering to the rules (without too much tweaking, of course.)
Have you ever thought of yourself as a gang leader?
Sometimes in order to take control of a situation, you need to start from the bottom up instead of tearing it down from the top. If you can cripple the base, the rest of the tower – so to speak – will come down soon after. That’s just physical, however.
Would you perhaps be able to lead an entire group of disenfranchised children and adults and lead them into the city-wide rebellion?
Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, Assassin’s Creed
According to the answers you’ve provided, you are most compatible with Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, an Syrian-born assassin in the 11 and 1200s.
You’ve seen some true terrors in your life, and it’s possibly made you overly cautious. You trust, but only where absolutely necessary. Despite this, however, you’re forgiving, even if the bonds that have been severed can never be reformed.
Your stoic disposition lead many to think that you’re uncaring, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. You care deeply for those who are lucky enough to have wormed their way into your heart.
Ezio Auditore de Firenze, Assassin’s Creed II
According to the information you’ve provided, you are most compatible with Ezio Auditore de Firenze, an Italian assassin in the 14 and 1500s.
You’ve experienced a great amount of loss in life that has forced you to change, to grow, and you often wonder if the things you’ve done warrant being proud of. Although life has toughened your skin, you’re still a softy at heart.
Life still has many things to teach you, but you’re well on your way to making the most out of it and being the best you that you can be.
Connor Kenway, Assassin’s Creed III
Your DNA results show that you are most compatible with Ratonhnhaké:ton, or more simply, Connor Kenway, an assassin during the American Revolution.
You have a strong sense of what is right and will fight for what you believe in regardless of who stands in your way, even if it’s family. Goal-oriented, you tend to keep to yourself and believe that you are the only one you can rely on.
Although your strength and resolution are admirable, you shouldn’t forget that letting people in may prove to be beneficial. You aren’t alone in this world, so don’t shut it out.
Edward Kenway, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag
According to the information you’ve given us, you’re most compatible with Edward Kenway, assassin and pirate in the 1700s.
Like Edward, you’re happiest when you can roam freely and hate to be tied down to any one place or person for too long. You find comfort in spirits and enjoy collecting (and hoarding) treasures, as well.
Though at times you might be gullible and make poor decisions based on lies, you always manage to redeem yourself and take responsibility for your actions.
Arno Dorian, Assassin’s Creed: Unity
Based on your answers, we have concluded that your DNA is most compatible with Arno Dorian, an assassin during the French Revolution.
Quick-witted and hot-headed, you mean well most of the time. You have some questionable methods of dealing with your emotions, and a knack for saying the wrong things to the wrong person. (You should probably curb that, by the way.)
Perhaps you like to flirt with the enemy a little too much and have something of a selfish streak, but you love fiercely and your desire to protect the ones you hold dear is admirable.
Jacob Frye, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
Your DNA is most compatible with Jacob Frye, a British assassin during the industrial revolution, gang leader, and twin brother of Evie.
You’re quick to jump into the heat of battle with little thought and aren’t afraid to get a little dirty along the way. You expect instant gratification for your efforts and don’t care to be tied down by anyone who disagrees.
Despite this, your intentions are always in the right place. If you slow down enough to see what’s happening around you, you could really make a difference in the world.
Evie Frye, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
According to your answers, you are most compatible with Evie Frye, a British assassin during the Industrial Revolution and twin sister of Jacob.
You fully believe that reading and learning from the past is the key to the future. Examining every angle of a situation before tackling it is the only way to ensure maximum success in a mission and in life.
Don’t spend your life reading about adventures, however. Go out and make your own. There’s a whole world outside and you deserve to experience it.
