The Guardian

The Guardian (harvested from: Odai Dunqas) was an Animi Avatar used by Abstergo Industries to train the recruits in the second stage of their Animi Training Program. His specialty weapon was a lance.

Unique moves[]

The Guardian had several unique moves:

(Low Profile, Front)

Casually walking up to his target, the Guardian quickly pulls out his lance and stabs it into their abdomen. He then cruelly pulls the spear upwards, further opening the newly inflicted wound and causing more blood loss. From there, the Guardian then removes his spear as he watches his victim fall to the floor.

(Low Profile, Back)

Carefully approaching his target from behind, the Guardian pulls out his lance, before slashing them diagonally across the spine to the left, followed up by a second slash to the right. He then brutally forces the spearhead through their back, withdrawing the lance as his victim collapses to their knees, dying slowly.

(High Profile, Front)

Running up to his target, the Guardian stabs his lance deeply into their chest. As they grab ahold of the spear, he takes his hands away from his weapon and spins around, before returning once more to his lance. From there, the Guardian sadistically rips the spear out as he pulls on it single-handedly, before performing a second spin and using the momentum to slash them across the chest, causing his victim to fall back to their death.

(High Profile, Back)

Rushing over to his target with his lance in hand, the Guardian impales them in their spine, causing them to recoil from the pain. He then withdraws his spear, springs upwards into the air and slashes his victim down their spine from their neck, causing them to die of blood loss.

(Bench Kill)

Grabbing his seated target's foot, the Guardian drags them off the bench until their head rests against it. Before they can do anything to defend themselves, he forcefully kicks them in the face, violently sending their head backwards and breaking his victim's neck on the bench behind them.

(Aerial Kill)

Leaping from above, the Guardian lands on top of his target, having taken out out his lance as he drops. Using the momentum of his fall, he forces the spearhead into their chest, killing them. As the Guardian stands up, he removes his weapon from his victim's dead body, before returning it to his back.
