The Independent

The Independent (harvested from: Alsoomse) was an Animi Avatar used by the entertainment branch of Abstergo Industries, as part of their plan to influence the general public, via the console stage of the Animus technology. She used a hatchet as her specialty weapon, which reflected her fierce temperament.

Unique moves[]

The Independent had several unique moves:

(Low Profile, Front)

Approaching her target from the front, the Independent pulls out her hatchet and butts its head into their stomach, winding them, which makes them bend over. After this, she swings the weapon down at her victim's exposed back, severing their spine and subsequently killing them. Following this, she then removes her hatchet as she watches them collapse backwards.

(Low Profile, Back)

Sneaking up to her target from behind, the Independent takes out her hatchet and embeds it into the right of their hip, making them recoil in agony, before she removes her weapon and strikes down hard in between their shoulder blades. Driving her victim to their knees, she lets them collapse as she sheathes her weapon.

(High Profile, Front)

Running up to her target, the Independent suddenly swings her hatchet downwards into their forehead, with the force causing them to kneel. Following this, she jumps upwards and shunts their head from the weapon with her knee, sending her victim sprawling to the floor as she lands gracefully on her feet.

(High Profile, Back)

As the Independent rushes over to her target from behind, she grabs their right shoulder and uses her legs to swing herself up into the air and over them. While in mid-air, she embeds her hatchet into her victim's ribcage violently, before she slices the axe deeply into their chest as she rips it out.

(Aerial Kill)

Jumping down from above, the Independent pounces onto her target with her hatchet, before she brutally smashes it into their head, killing them instantly. Following this, she gets up and hastily yanks her weapon out, leaving their body on the ground where it lays.

(Bench Kill)

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