Can we please get a clear image of Olivier, one that does not include Melanie? -- Master Sima Yi Clogs 20:50, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

If you can get a full-body shot of him talking to the analyst in his office (modern-day mission 3, I think), I can clean it up and drop the background, in keeping with the other profile pictures on articles. 

I'd get the picture myself, but sadly I have no sort of image-capture device for the PS3... sigh... P.S. - Would said picture go in a character infobox, or just be its own thing? MasterKenway (talk) 04:36, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'll be starting a new game slot soon to get some modern day shots, he'll be included for rendering. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 09:56, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Looking at the concept art, it seems that Ubisoft were planning on including Moss from The IT Crowd in the game.-- 15:55, January 19, 2014 (UTC)


Since he knows about the templars and actively helps them with finding the observatory, shouldnt we put in he templar allies category?-- 15:57, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Real Person--Name in Credits

I just noticed in the credits that an Olivier Garneau is listed under "Technical Leads Ubisoft Quebec." Connection? See attached screenshot.

I'd love to confirm that, but I don't see any attached screenshot :s Crook The Constantine District 10:07, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

Watch Dogs

I haven't seen any reference to Olivier in Watch Dogs, much less an actual mission where you kill him. Is there a source for this? CryptoKiller (talk) 02:49, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

The last 'Criminal Convoy' mission has him as the target. He is listed as 'CEO, Abstergo Entertainment' and his distinguishing characterisitc is 'Targeted by the Brotherhood'. Also, he may not actually be dead, as Pierce only uses a baton takedown on him to finish the mission - you fail if you shoot him/blow him up. That is speculation on my part though. Also, the text that he is seen to recieve is a clear allusion to AC, as it says 'Requiescat in pace' 03:00, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Wow, really? Is his character model the same as the one in ACIV? CryptoKiller (talk) 03:23, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, he looks very similar to the model from Black Flag. Different clothes, but same facial strcuture. 03:43, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Olivier's the CCO of Abstergo Entertainment, not the CEO. Are we just going to call that an oversight? -Molotov.cockroach (talk) 07:35, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
That might be a misread on my part or an oversight from the devs (I thought he was the CEO when I played through Black Flag)! I cannot go back to check at this point, but it was certainly a C-level executive identifier. Regardless, this should be enough to confirm that he is indeed the same Olivier from BF (along with the Brotherhood references and the ctOS references in BF making it clear that Watch Dogs and AC share the same universe. 08:57, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
So, now that they're really pushing AC and WD being set in the same universe, much to my disapproval, should we start making related pages? At the very least for Aiden Pearce? --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 11:10, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
Was he really assassinated? What's the context for this? I've tried looking up a video on Youtube, but so far, no luck :s Either way, I hope this is just a thing that doesn't affect the storyline of Assassin's Creed. I'd be much happier with the Watch Dogs thing being in the trivia section, rather than the biography itself. Crook The Constantine District 11:36, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
I've added images of dead Olivier and the text he recieves from the Brotherhood. CryptoKiller (talk) 12:02, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Just to respond to the notion of a shared universe, Darby said here the "Ubiverse" isn't one but just a series of easter eggs as with Far Cry. As he points out, there may be an Aiden Pearce in the AC universe but "I'm pretty sure the W_D creative team doesn't want First Civ mythology in their world." --Alientraveller (talk) 12:37, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Right. Moving to trivia now. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 14:03, May 29, 2014 (UTC) - Here is a video if anyone was curious. Raghava Shah 01:06, May 31, 2014 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed share the same universe. Easter Eggs are one thing but this is a mission involving a major character from the other game. Both games contain references to the other, and now there is a mission involving Olivier in Watch Dogs? That is definitely more than just an Easter Egg. Toolen (talk) 22:02, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

Quicksilver is also in the X-Men and Avengers film series, but those are not in the same universe either. --Alientraveller (talk) 22:15, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, but this isn't Marvel, is it? Toolen (talk) 23:27, June 20, 2014 (UTC) -> It's an easter egg, y'all. Nothing more, nothing less. What happened to Olivier in AC's universe is still up in the air, for now. Crook The Constantine District 22:25, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think so. He was said to have gone to Chicago in ACIV, the setting of Watch Dogs. In Watch Dogs, you intercept a convoy carrying Garneau to a meeting in Chicago. I'd say that is more than an Easter Egg.Toolen (talk) 23:27, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

It's never been confirmed that this is what truly happened in the AC universe, or that the two games are linked beside some Ubisoft non-canon self-referencing. For the time being, it remains sceptical; Olivier has gone missing en route to a shareholders' meeting. The means and how this occured are still elusive in AC. Slate Vesper (talk) 23:46, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Furthermore, this is an Assassin's Creed Wiki and only AC media is relevant to our point-of-view. You could start a Ubiverse Fan Fiction Wiki based on the non-canon assumption the AC, WD and Far Cry series share the same universe, but we only discuss relevant non-AC media in out-of-universe sections. --Alientraveller (talk) 23:51, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
I think it's also worth noting that Darby has flat out said people should not interpret the two universes as being the same, as he doesn't think the Watch Dogs team wants AC mythos foisted on their project. -Molotov.cockroach (talk) 05:15, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

In short - Multiverse. Like Marvel. /thread --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 10:43, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Conflicting dates

So I read that the Abstergo Entertainment research analyst was inducted into the company on 29 October, but on Olivier's page it says he left for Chicago on the 14th of October. I have no idea what kind of conflicting information you guys are feeding me. 16:01, July 5, 2014 (UTC) RedLeaf

Thanks for catching that. I'm not really sure where the 14th of October date came from, so I can't verify if it's meant to be the "14th of november" or if the date in its entirety is incorrect. Hopefully somebody else can answer that question. Anyways, I'll remove the date for now.
By the way, do try to respect the work people put into writing these articles. It takes a lot of effort and mistakes are inevitably made; we do our best to catch all of those, but sometimes one manages to slip through. If you find any other consistencies elsewhere, please mind your tone when reporting them. Crook The Constantine District 16:23, July 5, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, man, sorry, I really didn't mean it in such a revolting way. I was mucking around but I should've been careful. I didn't mean it at all. 16:31, July 5, 2014 (UTC) RedLeaf
The in-game diary just labels modern events in weeks, there are no precise dates. So I assume the 14th/29th October come from Initiates. If that's the case, they have to sort their shit out, since we won't speculate which is incorrect. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 16:35, July 5, 2014 (UTC)

Better Pic?

The current one strikes me as an extra from the Walking Dead. Jasonnorthrup (talk) 22:26, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Find me a better one to render, then. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 22:39, October 12, 2014 (UTC)


Did he really die? I know that's what Melanie said, but I didn't believe her for some reason... Mind you, I've only played Rogue so far. Is there any confirmation in Unity that Olivier was killed? (and if so, why?) Crook The Constantine District 23:45, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

I don't see why she would lie. There's also a file where Laetitia mentions Olivier having "fucked up".--Bovkaffe (talk) 23:48, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

I didn't really think she was lying, but I sort of interpreted it as Olivier being assumed dead because the authorities never found him. Crook The Constantine District 23:52, November 15, 2014 (UTC)
I know I’m late to this conversation, but I don’t think we should consider Olivier dead.

We have no reason to believe he is dead.

In AC4 he goes missing.

In AC Rogue Lemay said they didn’t find his body.

Just because they didn’t find his body doesn’t mean he is dead.

My thought is that the Assassin’s kidnapped him. Hugues de Payens (talk) 04:43, December 5, 2015 (UTC) Hugues de Payens

And yet there's no mention of him in the Assassins/Initiates. Perhaps Erudito or the First Civilization cultists then? Misphantom (talk) 04:57, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

I talked to Darby. He says he is "thinking" about Olivier, and that he "haven't decided yet" what to do with him. One thing is clear, his death isn't confirmed. DipsonDP (talk) 16:45, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

'aight, thanks, Dipson, for fixing the stuff :P Crook The Constantine District 17:23, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

The reason I think that it's the Assassins is that on October 11, 2013 in Initiates there is a text from Gavin Banks to Rebbecca Crane That says "Who is Olivier Garneau? What does he know?"

There is also the fact that we gave the Assassins the information on Olivier going to Chicago.

(There is also the event in Watch_Dogs which indicates that the Assassins had him kidnapped.)

But I guess we also know that the Templars and the Instruments knew he was going to Chicago.

Personally I don't think the Templars were behind it since he was making major progress in finding the Observatory and in a confidential log (or something like that in AC 4) Olivier was willing to over work the employees to find the Observatory. To me that shows his loyalty and commitment to the Templars.

I also think that the Templars could have come up with a better way of making Olivier disapear. They could have fired him and then killed him, instead of making him mysteriously disapear on his way to a buisiness meeting.Hugues de Payens (talk) 20:16, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
