Eivor's Saga Begins

The Animus simulation of Eivor Varinsdottir being attacked by a wolf glitched and fell apart.[1]

  • Layla: Ah! What the hell is that?
  • Operator: I'm seeing two different data streams, overlapped in the same DNA. Not sure why.
  • Layla: Fix this, or pull me out.
  • Operator: I can parse the streams with a filter. Hold on... Okay, we're good.

Layla weakly responded, still shocked from the simulation.

  • Layla: Are we?
  • Operator: I don't know what happened, but I can work around it. You'll have to pick a stream to keep things stable. There's a third option too. I can let the Animus modulate your identity based on signal strength. It's up to you.

The Animus displayed a screen prompting Layla to pick between following a female Eivor, a male Eivor, or letting the Animus decide. Regardless her decision, the operator responded in the same manner.

  • Operator: Alright, I'll lock it in and push ahead. To a time when these streams are more synchronized.

Layla resumed the simulation with an adult Eivor kneeling on the shores of Heillboer after failing to kill Kjotve the Cruel.[2]

The Raven Clan sets sail

Layla woke up from her Animus session after witnissing Eivor, Sigurd Styrbjornsson, and other members of the Raven Clan depart Fornburg, Norway for England.[3]

Animus Anomalies

In the Animus, Layla approached a floating blue symbol as Eivor. As she touched it, Eivor's avatar was relaced with Layla's own image.

  • Layla Hassan: Becs, are you seeing this?
  • Rebecca Crane: Yeah, it's weird. An anomaly of some kind. The rest of your simulation is frozen.
  • Layla: I can see a loose data package close by. I'll see if I can reach it.
  • Rebecca: Okay, but take it slow. We don't know what this thing is.

Layla heard a recording of unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Becs, I'm closing in on the data packet.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: Got it.
A small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Becs, I found another anomaly.
  • Rebecca Crane: Is that what we're calling them?
  • Layla: And another data packet. Should I get it?
  • Rebecca: If it's anything like the last one, absolutely.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Hey, are you two hearing the same voices I'm hearing?
  • Rebecca: Not sure what you mean. It's all quiet on our end.
  • Layla: Dammit. Well, I'm at the second packet. You ready?
  • Rebecca: I'm ready.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Sending it now.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Rebecca Crane: Your signal is flickering. Another anomaly?
  • Layla Hassan: Yeah. Are you losing touch with me when I find these?
  • Rebecca: Yeah, unfortunately. For a few minutes at a time.
  • Layla: Damn. Try to stay with me if you can. I need you to hear these.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Shaun Hastings: Hey, Becs! Layla's back! I see her here ... blipping and bleeping on your monitor.
  • Shaun: Layla, hey. Becs is fiddling with the back end. Trying to get a fix on you.
  • Layla: No luck?
  • Shaun: No luck. But she did show me how to decrypt your data packets. I just click a button when you've grabbed the data bits.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: Got it.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Anomaly four. Becs, you really have to hear this in here. Two voices, definitely Isu. One of them is Aletheia, I think.
  • Rebecca Crane: From the staff?
  • Layla: Yeah. But I don't think these are contemporary. They feel candid. Accidental.
  • Rebecca: I'll keep trying.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Shaun Hastings: Layla, it's Shaun. I'm sifting through the videos you've been finding. This is an absolute gold mine, I hope you realize.
  • Layla: Feels like it.
  • Shaun: This is literally the clearest raw memory-stream footage we've ever seen from the Isu era. Only question is, who's feeding them to you?

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: Got it.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Here we go again.
  • Shaun Hastings: Hey, it's Shaun here. Hum... Becs is trying to cook up a trace of some kind. Hoping to find out where this raw data is coming from.
  • Layla: It's not in Eivor's DNA is it?
  • Shaun: Can't be. Feels too deliberate. Like someone wants you to see it.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Becs, any progress?
  • Rebecca Crane: Nothing yet. Whoever put these here made a surgical incision into our server. They dumped this data and backed out before anyone noticed.
  • Shaun: Oddly enough, that's how Rebecca describes our wedding night. Which I find rude...
  • Rebecca: Hasting, get off the mic.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got it. Be ready.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Rebecca Crane: Layla. How are you holding up?
  • Layla Hassan: Not bad, actually. These anomalies feel second nature now.
  • Rebecca: Any ghosting effects? Double-identity syndrome? Occipital shock signs?
  • Layla: Hey hey, you trying to freak me out? My God, just let me work.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: All right, closing in on another one.
  • Rebecca: Sorry to freak you out earlier. It's just, the Animus can be dangerous. Prolonged exposure is hard on a brain.
  • Layla: I know. I just ... I wanna finish this.
  • Rebecca: Yes. Definitely. Jump out whenever you feel worn down.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Here it comes.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Anomaly number seven, if I'm counting right.
  • Rebecca Crane: You are. Just a few more to go. Ten in total.
  • Layla: Ten. Okay, I can do ten. Does the Animus give achievements for stuff like this?
  • Rebecca: Sorry? Does it what?
  • Layla: Forget it.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Rebecca: You're getting good at these, Layla.
  • Layla: I'm an engineer. These puzzles are child's play.
  • Rebecca: Still, it's physical and mental. That can't be easy.
  • Layla: That's true. I never had to swim through any fluid dynamics equations to solve them.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Here it comes.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Shaun. These memory-stream fragments I'm finding ... are they adding up to anything?
  • Shaun Hastings: Nothing coherent so far. Just random clips. Hard to say how they all fit together.
  • Layla: Damn.
  • Shaun: I think there's more here than meets the eye. Just keep going.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Almost there. Eight down, two to go.
  • Shaun: Good. And here comes another kaleidoscopic gemstone of gibberish.
  • Layla: Not bad, Shaun. Working on your kennings?
  • Shaun: As a matter of fact, I am, yes. Thank you for noticing, data-wrangler.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Here it comes.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Rebecca Crane: Anomaly number nine. Feeling okay? Any adverse effects?
  • Layla Hassan: I'm a little tired, that's all. Why? You expecting something worse?
  • Rebecca: Expecting the unexpected. It's hard to fully trust these things.
  • Layla: I'll be careful.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Number nine in sight. And the voices are still with me.
  • Rebecca: That's strange. We're still not hearing anything.
  • Shaun Hastings: Are you still sure they aren't coming from somewhere else? Like... from you?
  • Layla: God, no. How would that be possible?
  • Shaun: Sorry, just asking.

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Here it comes.
Another small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.

Layla encountered another floating blue symbol.

  • Layla Hassan: Last anomaly. This is it.
  • Rebecca Crane: I'm keeping a close watch on you. Don't do something weird or sudden, okay?
  • Layla: I won't. And pull me out if you see anything strange. Anything at all.
  • Rebecca: Gotcha.

Layla heard another fragment of the Isu unknown voices as she got close to the packet.

  • Layla: Becs, I'm almost at number ten. Anything happening on your end?
  • Rebecca: Nothing. I'm decrypting the last data packet now. Here we go.
  • Shaun Hastings: Hold on, hold on. The fragment's unpacking itself. Gigs of compressed data. I think... hold on... I think we're in for something bigger than we bargained for. Get ready...

Layla touched the data packet.

  • Layla: I got the data. Here it comes.

The last piece of decrypted data completed the clip. The Assassins watched the Isu memory.

  • Layla: Holy shit. What is that?
  • Rebecca: I have a few guesses, and all of them are wild. I'll upload this to the server.

Basim encountered a floating blue symbol.

  • Basim: Yes, here we are. My anomalies. Let's see how these turned out.

Basim touched the data packet.

  • Basim: And here... the fragment of an ancient memory.
A small clip from the Isu Era was inside the decrypted data.
