The Pioneer

The Pioneer (harvested from: Emily Burke) 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. Her specialty weapon was a ringed musket, suitable for one exploring new lands.

Unique moves[]

(Low Profile, Front)

The Pioneer forcefully runs her bayonet directly through her target's abdomen, subsequently puncturing vital organs and blood vessels as it passes. As her fatally wounded victim stumbles back from the blow, she retracts her musket from the wound and roughly brings it around to their temple, knocking them to the floor. Her target, incapacited from the attack, can do nothing as they exsanguinate in pain.

(Low Profile, Back)

Casually approaching her target from behind, the Pioneer takes her rifle and thrusts its bayonet through their right calf, severing the muscle and splitting the bone. As her victim falls to their knees in pain, she pulls out the bayonet and flips her rifle around to bring its butt crashing down on the back of their head. Her target is immediately knocked to the floor, unconscious, where they die from a lethal concussion.

(High Profile, Front)

Rushing over to her target, the Pioneer produces her rifle and loads it, while pointing it directly at their neck. Following this, her victim only has time to raise their hands in surrender before she pulls the trigger, sending a musket ball through their throat and making them fall back to their death.

(High Profile, Back)

Running up behind her target, the Pioneer takes her rifle and rams them in the back of their head with its butt. As they fall to the floor in pain, her victim turns their head towards her and raises their left hand in surrender. With her rifle already trained on her helpless contract, the Pioneer mercilessly pulls the trigger, sending a single bullet directly into their brain.

(Aerial Kill)

Descending upon her target with her rifle readily pointed downwards, the Pioneer forces her bayonet into their chest, piercing the heart. Following this, she twists her weapon and pulls it free from her victim, who are then left to bleed out onto the ground.

(Bench Kill)

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