Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Characters Explained

by William Schwartz


There’s going to be plenty of old and new characters in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations when it releases this fall.  Of course, we know that Ezio will return, and Altair will play some role in Desmond’s adventure.  The sequel which is said to end the trilogy, that is thought to be a mere introduction to the world of Assassin’s Creed, will seek to tie up some loose ends before trudging forward.  Though that’s not stopping Ubisoft from throwing out some brand new period specific characters for the single and multiplayer components of the game.  Recently, all of the significant characters have been outed in a Game Informer article about the next Assassin’s Creed game.

Returning Cast

Ezio Auditore di Firenze

“The main character of Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations, Ezio has passed through birth, boyhood, and into maturity before our eyes.”

Altair Ibn-La’Ahad

“The main character of the original Assassin’s Creed remains something of a mystery.”

Desmond Miles

The distant ancestor of both Assassins, Desmond fights his battles in the present day against Abstergo.

New Characters

Manuel Palaeologos

“Palaeologos is still tied to the Byzantine remnant that remains within Constantinople, but he also has some mysterious ties to the Templar order.”

Sofia Sorto

“Sorto is Ezio’s love interest in Revelations. Like Ezio, Sofia Sorto is a transplant to Constantinople from Italy.”

Prince Suleiman

“In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, we meet Suleiman as a young man of 17, some nine years before he will rise to the throne. Suleiman is in a complicated political situation as the game begins.”

Yusuf Tazim

Yusuf is the master assassin in Constantinople

New Multiplayer Classes

The Vanguard

“The Vanguard is a Cossack from Odessa. She joined the military to help hold the Ottoman Empire off from her homeland.”

The Guardian

“This intriguing character is the estranged cousin of the first Sultan of the Sennar Sultanate.”

The Bombardier

“The Bombardier is part of the Ottoman artillery corps, but that isn’t where his true loyalties lie.”

The Sentinel

“The Sentinel’s similarity to the garb of an Assassin isn’t coincidental. He was once part of the Assassin order.”
