Ikaros was a male golden eagle companion of the Spartan misthios Kassandra.

Biography

Ikaros was the oldest and dearest friend of Pythagoras. He somehow arranged to have the eagle sent to watch over his daughter Kassandra.[1]

In the 440s BCE, after the girl was cast down from the top of Mount Taygetos by her adopted father Nikolaos, Ikaros was found – as a hatchling – by Kassandra.[2] The eagle remained by her side as she fled from Sparta and ended up on Kephallonia. Forming a close bond, Ikaros often operated alongside Kassandra during her future career as a famed misthios to the extent that she gained the nickname "Eagle Bearer".[1]

Abilities

Ikaros' reconnaissance ability was of great help to Kassandra during her travels. In addition to this, Ikaros helped her also by attacking those who had targeted her, and by distracting Kassandra's human enemies at her bidding.[1]

If Kassandra was hunting, Ikaros would occasionally swoop down to get a kill of his own.[1]

Trivia

  • Ikaros functions mostly the same as Senu from Assassin's Creed: Origins; the major difference is that Ikaros can hurt and even kill humans on his own, unlike Senu.
  • Ikaros may be named after Ikaros, who flew too close to the sun and fell to his death in Greek mythology.
  • According to numerous individuals, Ikaros is the "eagle of Zeus", giving Kassandra her epithet of 'Eagle Bearer'.
  • The natural life expectancy of a Golden Eagle is 30 years, if Ikaros had been watching over Kassandra since she was born, he could be nearing the end of his life by 422 BCE.
    • By the time of the modern day, when Kassandra meets Layla in Atlantis, she mentions that Ikaros has long since passed away.
  • In a loadscreen blurb, it's mentioned how Ikaros had been a "part of (Kassandra's) family ever since Sparta."
