Melissanthi Mahut as Kassandra – Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
The Assassin’s Creed series has a number of charming and likable protagonists, but Kassandra in Assassin’s Creedy Odyssey makes a strong case for being the very best one. Kassandra is a misthios, or mercenary, living on the island of Kephallonia. She has a much greater destiny, however, as players soon find out.
Kassandra’s life as a mercenary has made her headstrong and brash, but she has an incredibly quick wit and isn’t afraid to call out stupidity when she sees it.
Kassandra is absolutely charming, and Melissanthi Mahut’s performance is a big part of that. Mahut’s delivery is spot on, and so many of her lines are laugh-out-loud hilarious.
The degree of choice Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gives you also allows players to decide what kind of person they want Kassandra to be: whether that’s the cold and ruthless mercenary, or the one always trying to look out for the common people.
Kassandra is one of the best things to happen to Assassin’s Creed in years, and Mahut should definitely be lauded for her strong performance.
