"I'm back... but you won't see me coming."
―The Night Stalker.

The Night Stalker

The Night Stalker (harvested from: Joe) 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 and research analysis stages of the Animus technology. His specialty weapon was a butcher's hook, perfect for tearing flesh apart.

Unique moves

(Low Profile, Front)

Approaching his target, the Night Stalker grabs his hook, before swinging it in a downwards arc and piercing it into their left shoulder. As the weapon lodges itself into his victim, he kicks their left knee from underneath them, sending them spinning onto their back and his hook ripping a savage wound as it frees itself with the momentum.

(Low Profile, Back)

Casually walking over to his target from behind, the Night Stalker draws his hook, before reaching around and stabbing it into their neck. As they stand vulnerable from the blow, he closes the distance and grasps their shoulder, before the Night Stalker twists his victim and wrenches his weapon sharply to the right, slitting their throat and spinning them, where they stumble and fall to their death.

(High Profile, Front)

Rushing over to his target, the Night Stalker swings his hook in an upwards arc and embeds its tip into their abdomen. Following this, he cruelly wrenches his weapon vertically, shredding his victim's internal organs, before latching his hook under their chin and viciously ripping it out, lurching them forward to die.

(High Profile, Back)

Sprinting up behind his target, the Night Stalker stabs his hook into the side of their mouth, before swinging them around and slamming their body to the ground. After this, he brutally tears his weapon out of his victim's face, creating a large gash and twisting their head upwards, where they are left to bleed out from their sizeable wound.

(Aerial Kill)

Leaping down onto his target from above, the Night Stalker removes his hook from his waist and holds it high, before stabbing it into their jugular in a downwards arc. As his weight is cushioned by their body, the Night Stalker tears his weapon free from their throat before replacing it at his side, unsympathetic to his victim's sorry state.

(Bench Kill)

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