I maybe sort of reeeeeaaally have issues with how often fandoms whitewash characters. Especially the Assassin’s Creed fandom. Connor’s got Haytham’s European blood but NOWHERE in the game do his genes rear up, slap him across the face, and turn him into a pasty-faced peckerwood.

Could someone do me a favor and tell me WHY they choose to color characters like Connoror James Heller the same shade as Altair or Alex Mercer? I honestly can’t wrap my mind around it and I’d genuinely appreciate an explanation. [SOURCE]

Technically speaking it probably won’t be an official year since the release of “Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation” until October 30TH, 2013. Still, this feels like as good a time to ruminate over the journey of this game since I learned of it during E3 June 2012. The following is a condensed retelling of the last seven months of 2012 that by no means details any mentions of the end of the world.

Though I operate on a fools hope, if Assassin’s Creed III has to get a sequel, than I hope to high heaven that the protagonist is not Connor, but Aveline de Gandpre. There is so much unexplored potential in her storyline, character arc, and a grand number of places in history to take her without ever being tied down to the “American” revolution. I could see it being an incredibly awesome experience (if they can avoid AC3’s pitfalls), especially if Ubisoft is willing to take the chance to create a larger base of female Assassins and Templar’s for which she could interact and trade philosophical stances with ah-la AC1.

I made the following submission above and it rather baffles me that a confession advocating for more interaction between female Assassins and Templars leads some to conclude that Aveline de Grandpre's entire character should revolve around assaging Ratohnhaké:ton's mainpain after the events of his AC3 story or should include him at all despite his storyline coming to a dead-end halt (the opposite of Aveline's which is left hanging in a similar manner in AC2).

If Aveline became the frontrunner of the AC3 sequel (yes, I'm aware of the Brazil news, thank you), what elements of gameplay or periods of time would you like to see her in? The big want I've seen mostly is tied to the French Revolution.
