9. Arno Dorian – Assassin’s Creed Unity
While Arno isn’t a bad character, he certainly pales in comparison to the other protagonists of the Assassin’s Creed series. The problem here is that Arno doesn’t grow as a character for quite a while, and he spends a good chunk of the main story being completely unlikable. He’s smarmy, makes a lot of bad decisions, and is only concerned about his own well-being and desire for revenge. The good news is that he does grow throughout Unity to become a robust hero, and a key piece of the puzzle in the overall story of AC and what happens to the Apple of Eden.
His relationship with Elise de la Serre is definitely one of the high points of Assassin’s Creed Unity, as it’s a caring relationship that puts tons of roadblocks in the way of things working between them. Even though he gets off to a rocky start, by the end of Assassin’s Creed Unity you’ll care about Arno and his tale of revenge.
