Layla Hassan was able to locate several of them while reliving the life of the VikingshieldmaidenEivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan. Each Anomaly involved a digital platforming-puzzle inside the simulation that Layla had to complete. Nearing the completion of each Anomaly, recordings of distorted voices could be heard.
The Animus Anomalies were created by the IsuLoki through his reincarnationBasim Ibn Ishaq during his time trapped within the Yggdrasil supercomputer, which he then sent to the Assassins via his mysterious audio file. They contained encrypted fragments of Loki's own memory during the Great Catastrophe, and during the solving of the puzzles, the voices of Loki and his lover Aletheia could be heard. Collecting all ten of the fragments pieced together the complete memory which amazed Layla and her allies, Shaun Hastings and Rebecca Crane, who helped her decode it. Complete and unfettered Isu memories straight from the source were a rarity, with only one other being known to the Assassins at that time.
Each Animus Anomaly was located sporadically with no significance to any particular location. Approaching within close proximity to the Anomaly caused the simulation session to become unstable and glitch. Upon interacting with said Anomalies, the simulation would pause itself and Layla was free to complete the puzzle. The Anomalies were represented on the Animus map function by an icon resembling the Nabla symbol with the Greek letter lambda, "Λ", inside.
Unknown Male Voice:Be still, love. And let the current flow. Let it take you.
Unknown Female Voice:Is this...? This is dangerous. It may not work.
Unknown Male Voice:Until we have the serum, this is all we can manage.
Unknown Female Voice:Will you not ask the Mad One for me? Ask him for the serum. Beg him for it.
Unknown Male Voice:He would not listen. And I would sooner see our world obliterated before I gave that man a view of me on my knees.
Unknown Male Voice:My love, are you there? Speak and tell me you live.
Unknown Female Voice:I... I live. If this is living. A mind without a body.
Unknown Male Voice:And do you feel?
Unknown Female Voice:I feel myself. My sense of being. Nothing more. Nothing less. No pain or... or joy... or passage of time.
Unknown Male Voice:And yet, you are with me. And I with you. And together we will endure.
Unknown Male Voice:My love, the time is now. The cataclysm is upon us. The Mad One has gathered his trusted eight to his secret hall.
Unknown Female Voice:Remember the calculations. You must act with precision. Every small step must be accounted for.
Unknown Male Voice:I'll remember. They are burned into my brain.
Unknown Female Voice:How long till your rebirth?
Unknown Male Voice:A long time, love. You must wait in your endless present, and I will sail the black sea of nonbeing. But if all goes well, I'll find you again. On the far side of our doom. We'll be together. Again.
