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

Biography

In the 440s BCE, a hatchling Ikaros was found by a young Kassandra after she was thrown down from the top of Mount Taygetos by her father Nikolaos.[1] Ikaros afterwards accompanied Kassandra as she fled from Sparta and ending up on Kephallonia. Forming a close bond, Ikaros often operated alongside Kassandra during her time as a misthios, gaining her nickname and fame as the "Eagle Bearer".[2]

Trivia

  • Ikaros functions identically to Senu from Assassin's Creed: Origins.

  • According to numerous individuals, Ikaros is the "eagle of Zeus", giving Kassandra her epithet of 'Eagle Bearer'.
  • The life expectancy of a Golden Eagle is 30 years, if Ikaros had been watching over Kassandra since she was born, he would 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."
