While being held captive at Abstergo Industries, Desmond secretly had multiple conversations with Lucy Stillman, Dr. Vidic's assistant. Before each Animus session, he would also have conversations with Vidic, who would discuss certain details of Abstergo's goals.
|The Experiment Begins|
Desmond gasped and inhaled deeply.
Vidic chuckled wryly.
Lucy cut Vidic off.
Desmond eavesdropped on their conversation through the ventilation system in the bathroom.
The pair came out of the conference room.

Vidic talked into the intercom.
Vidic switched off the intercom and turned to Desmond.
Vidic turned the intercom back on and the gunfire continued, before stopping abruptly.
Vidic switched off the intercom for the last time, before turning back towards Desmond.
Vidic walked out.
Lucy bent her left ring finger, symbolizing the Assassins.
|The Eagle and The Apple|
Desmond finished the final memory of Altaïr.
Vidic replied to Lucy.
Desmond got up and activated Eagle Vision for the first time. Many symbols could be seen on the floor in the Animus room.
Desmond went to his bedroom and noticed more symbols on the wall.
|Escape from Abstergo|
Desmond entered the Animus and witnessed the birth of Ezio Auditore.
Two guards noticed Lucy and Desmond escaping.
Lucy typed in a code and locked a door, preventing the guards from following them.
Lucy and Desmond were spotted by the Abstergo guards.
Lucy fought with the guards, swiftly taking them down. The pair then entered a nearby elevator, traveling downward.
Lucy swiped a card into a keypad and entered a code, which failed. She then attempted another time, to no avail.
Desmond tried his hand at entering a code into the keypad.
Desmond used Eagle Vision to see the fingerprints on the keypad and entered the code "2374".
Desmond and Lucy reached the parking lot and fought off a squad of guards. Afterwards, they ran for Vidic's car and Lucy opened the trunk.
Desmond got into the trunk of the car.
Desmond shot a dirty look up at Lucy, who slammed the trunk door shut.
Finally, Lucy opened the trunk and Desmond sat up.

Desmond and Lucy entered the Auditore Crypt, though their glow-sticks didn't work at first.
The two managed to get their glow sticks to function.
|Path to the Sanctuary|
Desmond suffered the bleeding effect and saw the forms of Monteriggioni's townspeople escaping, with Ezio Auditore assisting them.
Ezio pulled a lever, and a gate impaled a Borgia soldier as it fell. Afterwards, the apparitions faded away, revealing the guard's skeleton.
The two of them walked up to the gate and Desmond pulled a nearby lever. The gate only raised a few inches above the bones of the guard, before Desmond let it go and it dropped back down.
Desmond lifted the gate and Lucy quickly crawled under it.
Desmond cracked a joke.
Lucy replied in a slightly frightened manner.
Lucy scolded him back for his prank.
Afterwards, Lucy jumped down, and Desmond began to see more figures through the Bleeding effect.
Desmond heard a conversation between Claudia Auditore and Ezio, due to the Bleeding effect.
The ghostly forms disappeared.
Desmond walked toward a lift, and pulled Lucy close to him.
Desmond kicked back the lever on the lift, and the two of them rocketed upwards to a ledge.
They began to freerun through the tunnel.
Lucy replied back jokingly.
Desmond reassured Lucy.
They both came to another gate and lever.
Desmond feigned innocence.

They came to another collapsed bridge.
Upon entering the Sanctuary, Desmond saw an image of an aged Ezio, due to the Bleeding effect.
Desmond noticed a triangular symbol on the wall, opposite to the bookcase that acted as a door to the hidden passageway which the two were behind.
Shaun could be heard, although muffled, from behind the passageway door.
Desmond pulled up the locks and the bookcase opened, with Shaun and Rebecca walking through afterwards.
Shaun noticed the symbol on the wall.
Desmond activated Eagle Vision to try and learn more about it, and noticed three numbers.
Desmond replied back in a playful way.
Lucy shot Desmond a dirty look, as he had called her out.

Lucy raised her voice to try and drown out the others who were arguing.
Still displeased, but somewhat calmer, Desmond replied back.
Shaun, previously uninvolved with the argument, cut in nonchalantly.
|After Memory Sequence 4|
Desmond struck up some conversation with Shaun, revolving around Caterina Sforza and the main Assassin HQ.
After speaking with Shaun, Desmond walked over to Rebecca to chat about the power and the Animus.
Shaun suddenly cut in with a complaint.
A hungry Desmond then went to Lucy, concerning the food supplies, as well as to inspire some hope in her.
An brief awkward silence filled the Sanctuary.
A short while passed.
Once Desmond ate a hamburger, Rebecca made what could be her vegetarianism known.
|After Memory Sequence 7|
Wishing to know more about Ezio's nemesis, Desmond approached Shaun for some information.
From there, Desmond spoke with Rebecca about his psychological state, in connection with the corrupted sequence.
Following that, Desmond went to talk with Lucy, inquiring about the amount of time they had left to improve his skills.
|The Miracle is in the Execution|
Desmond found himself in a virtual maze. After some free-running, he found Subject 16.
The virtual construct of Subject 16 laughed.
Subject 16 disappeared, and Desmond removed himself from the Animus.
Desmond apologized to Lucy.
|After Memory Sequence 9|
After fully synchronizing with Ezio, the four-man Assassin team discovered the location of Ezio's Apple.
All of a sudden, the power cut out.
While the three brainstormed ideas in the Sanctuary, Desmond headed upstairs to the triangular symbol on the wall.
The other Assassins walked up to Desmond.
Lucy, Shaun and Rebecca departed, leaving Desmond to go forward. From this point on, any contact between Desmond and the other three was through a radio connection.
Desmond found the hidden entrance and Juno appeared to him, though only he could hear her words.
|A Knife to the Heart|
Desmond entered Santa Maria Aracoeli through a secret entrance, while Lucy, Shaun and Rebecca waited at the door outside.
Desmond unbarred the door.
Desmond had a vision of Ezio climbing up the altar.
Desmond activated what would turn out to be a wall lever, and multiple poles shifted out of the ceiling, constructing a series of free-running obstacles.
Desmond activated another switch, and a ladder came out of the wall.
Desmond eventually activated a switch on the highest platform, and a pedestal came out of floor at the front of the church.
Desmond moved his hand above the pedestal, which activated into a lift on sensing his First Civilization genes, that took the Assassins underground.
The lift stopped, and the entrance to Juno's Temple could be seen.
The Assassins approached the door.
The door opened.
Desmond activated the pedestal, and multiple platforms and beams came out from the floor and walls.
Desmond activated all of the switches, and stairs to the central platform came out of the floor.
The Assassins approached the Apple of Eden.
The Apple activated and showed many different symbols around it.
Desmond touched the Apple, and it took control of his body, while the other Assassins were frozen in time.
Forced to move by Juno, Desmond unwillingly approached Lucy and stabbed her in the stomach with his Hidden Blade.
Afterwards, both Desmond and Lucy fell to the ground, with blood seeping out from her wound, while Desmond's mind began to lapse into unconsciousness. Following this, a short conversation between two people could be heard after a few minutes.
Desmond then began experiencing Ezio's memories of a repressed memory sequence.
Desmond finished exploring the repressed memories.
Desmond woke up in the Black Room, before taking some steps forward to adjust to his surroundings. Meanwhile, the digital construct of Clay Kaczmarek (Subject 16) initialized nearby.
Clay suddenly relocated himself close to Desmond's position, startling him.
Clay pointed to the Synch Nexus.
Desmond collapsed to the ground, as images flashed through his mind.
A digital tone could be heard, similar to that of when a telephone was answered. Afterwards, a conversation between Rebecca, Shaun and William Miles began.
|After DNA Sequence 1|
Desmond was forcibly returned to Animus Island from Ezio's memories.
Another conversation between Rebecca and Shaun could be heard through Animus Island.
|After DNA Sequence 2|

Clay disappeared. After a while, a discussion between Rebecca, Shaun and William Miles could be eavesdropped on.
|After DNA Sequence 6|
Some time later, another talk between Shaun and William Miles took place.
After this exchange, Clay inquired about Desmond's life, which at first he was nervous to reply to.
Once Clay's curiosity was fulfilled, another group conversation with those outside the Animus started.
|After DNA Sequence 8|
Following Desmond exploring more of Ezio's memories, the Assassins outside of his coma planned to relocate themselves, and him along with them.
Meanwhile, inside the Animus, the machine planned to wipe Animus Island of all its contents, with Clay and Desmond along with it. As the threat of being deleted was finally at hand, it spurred one last conversation between the two.
Clay embraced Desmond tightly, bewildering the Assassin in the process.
Jumping to the conclusion that Clay intended to take both of them to their deaths, Desmond pleaded with him.
Clay pushed Desmond towards the Sync Nexus, as he began to be erased by the system deletion. However, it would not stop him from shouting out one final command to Desmond.
|The Sync Nexus|
Once Desmond had achieved the necessary synchronization with his ancestors, he found himself communicating with Jupiter, one of the First Civilization, as Juno and Minerva stood at either side of the ancient figure before him.
|After DNA Sequence 9|
Following Jupiter's message and having fully separated himself from his ancestors and their memories, Desmond began to awaken from his comatose state.
|Animi Training Program|
On the advancement of the Animi Training Program, select Abstergo recruits were allocated to the second stage of the program, and came into contact with Warren Vidic often, as well as some other Templars.
Berg chose a designer watch from a box before him, courtesy of Abstergo.
Berg then took a glass of champagne offered to him and entered a private jet.
Berg casually strolled through an airport.
From there, he entered a limousine and picked up a bottle of expensive wine.
Berg pulled up at a remote countryside mansion.
Berg opened the door and stepped out of the limousine, and Vidic walked out of the mansion's entrance, waiting to greet him.
One of Them
A gruff sounding voice suddenly stated an order.
Panicking slightly, Berg attempted to get up, but was held still by an arm around the throat, the hand holding an injection gun.
Proceeding onward, Daniel implanted Berg with a microchip from the injection gun.
The two Templars then turned to Berg, staring straight at him.
|Arrival at the Temple|
Desmond and his team arrived at the Grand Temple in upstate New York. William Miles opened the doors to their van.
The other Assassins gathered up their equipment while Desmond waited at the mouth of the cave.
Desmond led the Assassins into the cave, stopping at the door, which was covered in modern graffiti and ancient Native American cave paintings. The Apple of Eden began to glow, and Desmond took it out and stuck it in a spherical concave imprint in the door which activated and opened.
Desmond bent under the door and walked under it, with the rest of his team following. The Assassins continued down a long empty hallway for some time before coming to a sloping drop which led to another door. Again, Desmond used the Apple to open the door.
Beyond the door was a sliding drop. Desmond slid down this and then made his way into the main hall of the Temple. Upon entering it, he saw a bright glowing cube on the ground in front of a power bank. Desmond picked up the cube and inserted it into a matching slot on the bench-shaped structure, which activated the entire Temple, especially the great door at the very back. The Assassins made their way towards the door. As they reached it, Desmond heard Juno's voice.
Desmond began to experience the bleeding effect.
Desmond turned to face his father, but saw instead Haytham Kenway's coachman.
Desmond collapsed. Some time later he awoke in the new Animus 3.0.
Desmond responded in a dazed manner.
William tried to calm his son's anxiety.
Desmond then began the refresher course Rebecca set up for him.
|After Sequence 3|
Desmond got out of the Animus, shocked about learning Haytham's true loyalties.
At this, Desmond showed his disgust at William's seeming inhumanity.
Finally, Desmond let loose his rage and anger at being exploited.
Angered to his own breaking point, William punched Desmond in the jaw.
At this point, Shaun decided to break up the fight for an announcement.
Shaun agreed, though he appeared just as disgusted with William's indifference as Desmond.
|Before Sequence 4|
The argument settled, Desmond spoke to Rebecca.
Desmond then ran over to Shaun who was inspecting the door.
Shaun noticed Desmond.
Shaun then asked Desmond about their situation.
Desmond tried to talk to his father with no success.
|First Power Source|
Desmond got out of the Animus, having experienced Connor's early memories.
Rebecca voiced concern.
Desmond pulled up his hood and set out to recover the first power source. After recovering it, the Assassins left New York immediately and made a two day detour through Boston. Upon returning to the Grand Temple, Desmond demanded to know about Cross.
|Juno encounters 1 & 2|
Desmond explored the Temple while looking for a socket for the battery he'd just acquired. Along the way, he encountered Juno, who explained the solutions the First Civilization had tried to save the world from the First Disaster.
|Before Sequence 6|
Desmond soon found a socket and plugged the power source into it. When this was done, he returned down below and talked to Rebecca.
Rebecca then nervously asked Desmond about his encounter with Daniel Cross.
Rebecca's voice broke as she related what happened next.
Desmond then spoke to his father next. William first tried to apologize for the earlier punch, then to make peace for Desmond's rough childhood.
Desmond then asked his father if the Assassins and Templars had ever worked together.
Desmond then asked William about whether he had ever looked for him.
Desmond then lamented the fact that more often than not, the Assassins kept defecting to the Templars than vice-versa.
Desmond then made his way over to Shaun, who wanted to use the Animus to go back to the beginning.
Shaun then launched into seeing the American Revolution from a decidedly British perspective.
Shaun then wondered how many other First Civilization vaults there were still to find.
|Second Power Source|
Desmond left the Animus after exploring more of Connor's memories.

|End of a Hero|
Desmond, William, Shaun and Rebecca approached the gate inside the Grand Temple.
The team proceeded to make their way towards the ending of the path, leading to a round device.
Desmond was shown a vision of what would happen to the world if he refused to use the device.
Desmond, Juno and Minerva then continued their conversation.
Desmond touched the pedestal, killing himself instantaneously but saving most of the world in the process.
An Abstergo employee began explaining to a colleague on how to synchronize Desmond's data to the cloud.

Layla approached the Animus HR-8.
Layla gasped for air as she sat up and disconnected from the Animus.
Layla hallucinated Aya walking towards an inner chamber where Bayek's mummy resides.
She followed it, then briefly commented on Bayek's mummy as the hallucination passes by it.
The hallucination disappeared as it neared a pit.
Layla looked down at the edge and saw a pool of water, after which she dove down. She immediately swam up.
She looked around to see a fallen, open sarcophagus with Aya's mummy laid bare.

As Layla climbed into the Animus, Victoria went to a nearby laptop and booted up both machines.
A screen popped up.
(If Layla chose Kassandra)
|Taking a break|
Layla Hassan awoke from the Animus, sitting up.
(If players choose "What do you think of the mission so far?")
(If players choose "What do you think of the new Animus?")
(If players choose "That's enough for now.")
Layla sat at the computer,
(If players choose "What can you tell me about the book?")
(If players choose "What do you know about Herodotos?")
(If players choose "That's enough for now.")
Layla looked out the window.
Layla picked up a radio to check in with Kiyoshi.
(If players choose "Why are you so short with me?")
(If players choose "What do you think we should do next?")
(If players choose "I'll leave you to it.")
Layla made her way back to the Animus.
Layla Hassan awoke from the Animus excited, sits up, then removes her head-mounted display.
Victoria, concerned, approaches Layla.
Layla raises both her hands up to stop her, and appears annoyed.
Victoria sighs remaining unconvinced.
Victoria is convinced and suddenly turns enthusiastic.
Layla dives down underwater and swims towards the rocky bottom of Thera. She found the cave entrance.
She enters it and continues to swim forward, reaching a hole going further down.
Layla dives deeper.
The hole stops going down and she swims forward as Alannah joins in their talk.
Layla reaches a chamber of small hydrothermal vents and swims through a safe passage between the fissures.
Victoria cries out in protest.
Layla arrives at emerges to a bioluminescent chamber with deep water in between, and she goes to the other end. There appears a very deep sinkhole, but she slides down a couple dozen meters and, quite sure of herself, performs a leap of faith diving another couple dozen meters underwater. She swims forward to a huge chamber with a few hydrothermal vents.
Layla reaches the end of the chamber to a small opening below.
She enters into a bioluminescent tunnel.
She runs through the walkway.
She walks underneath it and look around.
She changes back to her old clothes with a square scarf wrapped around her neck and over her chest. Layla looks around in amazement.
Layla contacts her team again.
She crosses her arms, and walks back and forth.
She contacts her team again.
Layla returns from the Animus after experiencing what Kassandra did. She went straight to the the transmitting column near the gate where she pushes the triangle button in the middle. It flashes golden light, and the square pyramid floating above glows and activates with a holographic earth beneath it. Layla looks up in awe and excitement.
The continent of Africa appears to be missing from the hologram.
Layla notices a missing light beam on a face of the pyramid and walks to its corner below to look up. She sees the dormant symbol of the Minotaur.
She rubs her hands and turn to look back and up where the light source should be. She proceeds to climb towards it and discovers a chamber room of zigzagging lights and pillars. She moves inside.
She approaches one.
Layla goes farther inside to the source of the light.
She begins to move the pillars until the light bounces to the inactive face of the pyramid.
Layla takes a leap of faith to the water below that surrounds the platform below the hologram. She resurfaced and returned to the center of it, but nothing seems to happen. She rests her arms slightly above her hips and thinks for a moment.
She sits on a protruding part of a structure and realizes something.
Layla senses Kassandra as she approaches her with a spherical artifact on her hand that transformed into the Staff of Hermes.
Layla responds in astonishment.
Kassandra laughs and replies while eyeing the staff she holds.
Layla turns exhilarated.
(If players choose "What are you doing here?")
(If players choose "What about your spear?")
(If players choose "I need the staff.")
Kassandra cuts her.
Kassandra sighs and pore over the staff.
Kassandra hands it to Layla. Layla holds the staff, but Kassandra says one last thing before she lets go.
Layla nods. Kassandra nods and lets go. She turns away and immediately turns gray and old. Then, in a few seconds, light exhausts from her as her life drains away. Layla catches her as she falls. Kassandra utters her final words in Ancient Greek.
Layla lays her down on the ground in sorrow and gives her a moment of silence. She picks up the staff to examine it, then puts it aside.
|Unlocking the Seal to Atlantis|
After relieving Kassandra' encounter with Aletheia, she spoke to her cell members through communications.
Layla heard a voice.
Layla explored the surroundings, travelling to a large gate in the right corner while carrying the Staff of Hermes Trismegistus. She placed the staff on the left of the gate. While she looked around, a voice echoed from the staff.
Kassandra approached the staff.
Layla picked up the staff.
Layla looked at the symbols to her left.
Layla went back into the Animus, continuing Kassandra's memories during her meeting with Aletheia. Afterwards, she received a message through her communications.
|Exploring Agamemnon's Tomb|
After Kassandra found the symbol in Agamemnon's Tomb, Layla Hassan reported her findings to her team.
Layla travelled to Argolis, entering Agamemnon's tomb, which the entrance had largely collapsed.
Layla began exploring the tomb and could barely contain her excitement.
Layla retraced Kassandra's steps and found that the spike traps were still functional.
She inspected the barricade on the other side of the chamber.
Layla climbed a nearby grain rack, which Kassandra had moved into position centuries before, and got over the barricade. She encountered a skeleton on the ground on the other side.
Layla continued into the stele chamber, inspecting the path below the hole in the floor. She followed the path and found the way out Kassandra used had collapsed.
Layla retraced her steps and inspected the other routes available to her.
|Exploring the Tomb of Eteokles|
The Altaïr II fetched Layla and brought her to Eteokles' tomb in Attika. Layla managed to enter the tomb.
Layla descended the stairs into the tomb, passing by a large spike trap.
She reached the main burial chamber, which contained the remains of Eteokles.
She continued through the halls.
Layla continued and rounded a corner to find a well-preserved statue.
She walked up to inspect it closer.
She turned and entered the large chamber.
|Exploring the Tomb of Orion|
The Altaïr II brought Layla to Orion's tomb in Boeotia.
Layla descended the steps to the left and took stock of the plant life flourishing in the tomb, as well as the water damage that facilitated it.
She vaulted over a collapsed column.
To her left at the fork, she found the stele chamber along with bull iconography.
She turned back and took the opposite path, past a spike floor trap and back up the stairs, finding the corpse of a raider.
Layla weaved her way past wine jars and tree roots into a flooded chamber.
|Exploring Deimos' memories and opening the Throne Room|
Layla returned to the Altaïr II, and then to Atlantis. There, she relived the memories of Deimos, who had encountered Phidias before. In Phidias' workshop, he was looking through his scrolls. Deimos arrived shortly afterwards to punched the back of Phidias' head. Phidias head bounced off a block of marble, causing him to bleed. Phidas attempted to crawl for his life, while Deimos picked a sculpting knife off the marble.
Deimos punched Phidias, throwing him onto a slab of marble.
Deimos stabbed the knife into Phidias' left hand and took it out, causing Phidias to scream in pain.
Deimos held his hand to his forehead in frustration.
Deimos continued to punch Phidias repeatedly before stopping. The sensation of each punch transferred directly to Layla's fists, and she felt indistinguishable from Deimos. Phidias' blood ran down the slab of marble.
Deimos climbed up the slab.
Layla-as-Deimos picked up Phidias and threw him across the room. The sculptor continued uttering the words.
The scene turned to outside of the workshop. Screams continued to be heard. In the modern day, Layla Hassan's Animus session was terminated.
The commumications went silent. Layla approached the huge door.
Layla drew the Staff and stared at it.
|Starting the memories in Elysium|
Layla approached the Throne Room's entrance before trying to contact her team.
Layla opened the Great Seal and entered the Throne Room of Atlantis.
In the center, she encountered the hologram of Aletheia.
Victoria Bibeau approached from behind, having entered Atlantis in search of Layla.
Victoria turned and whispered to Layla.
Aletheia pointed at three pillars as a beam of light bounced from each one, leaving an emblem.
The lights stopped.
Layla took out her Animus headset.
|After the memories in Elysium|
Before Layla could relive Kassandra's memories of her battle with Cerberos, Victoria pulled her out of the Animus by removing the headset from Layla's head.
Layla brandished the Staff as Kassandra did, using Kassandra's battle experience to wield it as her own weapon against Abstergo's strike team. She killed two of them and knocked the third to the ground. She spat and stalked after him as he attempted to crawl away, raising the Staff to finish him off.
Layla paused to consider her options, then lifted the guard to his feet.
The guard fled, and Victoria stepped forward to reprimand Layla.
Alannah Ryan chimed in over the comms.
Layla walked out with the Staff, leaving Victoria to ponder the changes happening to her patient and friend.
|Starting the memories in Hades|
After giving Victoria some time to sort out Kassandra's memories, Layla was ready to re-enter the simulation from the point where Kassandra was cast out of Elysium.
Aletheia's holographic projection reappeared, startling Victoria.
|After the memories in Hades|
While Layla was reliving Kassandra's memories as she defeated Hades, she was forcefully pulled out by Victoria once again, who removed the Animus from her head and the Staff from her hands.
Victoria walked away. Alannah contacted Victoria on the comms.
Layla followed Victoria to the middle of the room.
Layla pondered her thoughts before moving forward to grab the Staff, causing a struggle between her and Victoria.
Layla was able to pull back the Staff to her hands.
An angry Layla struck Victoria with the Staff, sending her flying backwards into a block of stairs. Her body rolled to the ground and slumped into the water channels running through the dais.
Victoria didn't respond. Layla put down the Staff and squatted down to check on her, realizing that Victoria was dead
Aletheia appeared behind, having witnessed everything.
Layla stood up with the Staff, facing Aletheia.
Aletheia turned around and walked away. Layla followed behind.
Layla walked towards Victoria's body.
|Starting the memories in Atlantis|
Some time after Victoria's death, Layla returned to Aletheia.
Layla walked off to retrieve the Animus while Aletheia pondered her decision.
|Aletheia's lessons in Atlantis|
Shortly after reliving Kassandra's memory of her first conversation with Poseidon in Atlantis, Aletheia spoke to Layla.
|End of the trials|
After relieving Kassandra's memories in Atlantis, Layla Hassan ended the session on Aletheia's warning.
Juhani Otso Berg appeared and approached Layla.
(Asked "Why are you with the Templars?")
(Asked "Why did you hurt Deanna?")
(Leave – "Enough of this.")
Berg drew a sword while Layla drew the Staff. They began clashing, and he taunted her with Victoria's death.
Layla defeated Berg, who clutched his body in pain and dropped to his knees.
Berg chuckled with labored breaths.
Layla grabbed Berg's head from the back.
Layla threw him forward from the head forcefully, rendering him prone one the ground. She then impaled Berg's spine with the bladed pommel of the Staff. Berg yelled in pain. Layla looked back at him with pity before returning to her work desk.
Layla knocked the Staff over in a frustrated swing of her arms. She notice Berg passed out from his injuries and retrieved the Staff. Layla then walked towards Victoria's body propped against the stairs and knelt down.
Layla began to cry.
Layla noticed Victoria's earpiece.
Layla took off Victoria's earpiece and replaced her own. She then attempted to make contact.
Layla returned to the Animus while she awaited extraction.
