生平编辑

早年 编辑

“I know him only as one of a family of explorers, extending the boundaries of the known world.”
―James Cook on Chevalier, 1760.[来源]

1717年,路易-约瑟夫出生于圣皮耶尔湖牛岛的一个探险者家庭中。1735年,他与他的父亲前往位于伍兹湖的圣查尔斯堡,开始了人生第一次探险之旅。[1]

第二年,路易-约瑟夫重建了莫勒帕堡,他的父亲奖励给他“骑士”的头衔,他的哥哥也同样获此殊荣。维伦德里骑士随后花了四年时间探索北达科他州马尼托巴[1]

1744年,维伦德里骑士成为了法国政府的一名边防哨所指挥官,大约在这个时候,他遇到了阿基里斯·达文波特利亚姆·奥布莱恩,帮助刺客完成一个任务。1746年,阿基里斯询问维伦德里骑士是否愿意加入刺客组织,后者欣然接受。通过维伦德里,刺客们获得了宝贵的盟友——走私者、海盗和法国政府,比如猎人[1]

1749年,维伦德里的父亲去世,进一步向西探险也受到政治干扰。这一年晚些时候,他遇到了刺客新兵谢伊·科马克,两人彼此都不喜欢对方。[1]

Around 1750, Chevalier worked with another recruit, Robert Faulkner, to prepare a shipping route from the colonies to the Assassins in Europe. In 1751, Faulkner wrote to Chevalier, offering to serve as first mate aboard the Assassin flagship, the Aquila. He also mentioned his investigations into the French shipping companies of the Lévesque and de L'Isle families, which he suspected to be Templar-owned. Faulkner told Chevalier that he still had to secure his operations before fully joining the Assassins, and shared his worries for the future with him.[2]

Meeting with smugglers编辑

“The Royal Navy attacked my vessel and forced my men to flee! We are stranded, and what is worse, the smugglers we were supposed to meet have been taken prisoner.”
―Chevalier to Shay and Liam, 1752.[来源]

Shay and Chevalier fighting

1752年1月,维伦德里前去执行一个在Port-Menier与走私者会面的任务。陪同他的有谢伊和利亚姆,骑士不肯告诉前者任务的真实目的。谢伊和利亚姆打猎的时候,走私者被抓获,维伦德里骑士的船海东青号也遭到了皇家海军的攻击。[3]

正当维伦德里照顾伤者的时候,谢伊和利亚姆赶到了。他们的迟到惹怒了骑士,他对谢伊大发脾气,两人的争执很快演变成拳脚相向,利亚姆只好出面制止。[3]

在利亚姆的建议下,骑士留下治疗伤者,利亚姆和谢伊释放了走私者。期间,谢伊登上了双桅纵帆船摩莉甘号并释放了舰上被俘的走私者,骑士和利亚姆帮助他杀死了的英军,取得了船的控制权。摩莉甘随后击沉了攻击海东青号的英国船只,让维伦德里骑士回到他的船。在这一年,骑士回到了皮草交易中,但他的生意做得并不顺利。[3]

寻找伊甸碎片 编辑

Chevalier:“Ah, the cabbage farmer returns. About time. We have a lead on the curious manuscript.
Shay:“I'd be surprised if you could read it.
Chevalier:“No one can read it, imbécile. This is why the Templars are taking so long with it. But one of our allies has caught a glimpse of their work. [...] We set sail for Anticosti. That should prove a good test for this floating cesspit you call a ship.
——Chevalier and Shay, 1752.[来源]

In March 1752, the Assassin Adéwalé visited the Davenport Homestead and met with Achilles. As Chevalier guarded the meeting, Adéwalé revealed that during the earthquake in Haiti the year before, the Templars had stolen two Pieces of Eden from the Assassins: the Precursor box and the Manuscript.[3]

Chevalier and Shay meeting with Le Chasseur

A month later, Chevalier met with Shay and Liam at Port la Joye. They then set sail for Anticosti Island to meet with Le Chasseur, who had intelligence regarding the artifacts. Along the way, the three discussed various Assassin affairs and also plundered a British schooner. After upgrading the Morrigan, they sank a fleet of British ships and arrived at Anticosti.[3]

Meeting with Le Chasseur at the island's fort, they learned that the Manuscript was in the hands of the Templar Lawrence Washington. After assassinating Washington, Shay learned that the Box and Manuscript had been entrusted to two other Templars, Samuel Smith and James Wardrop, respectively.[3]

Chasing Smith编辑

Shay: "There he is!"
Chevalier: "Most fortunate timing. Lady Luck never ceases to smile on you."
Shay: "He's seen us. Give chase!"
Chevalier: "But hold your fire! We must not damage the Box or risk losing it to the sea."
—Shay and Chevalier finding Smith, 1754.[来源]

Chevalier looking at the damaged Gerfaut

1754年5月,圣约翰斯附近,海东青号在与三艘英国战舰的战斗中严重受损,维伦德里骑士将船交予猎人修复后,与谢伊汇合。这时猎人获悉,史密斯从欧洲远航归来,他在此行中依然无法激活盒子。随后,骑士登上了谢伊和利亚姆的船,现在的摩莉甘号已经装备了帕克尔枪和破冰撞角。[3]

刺客们不知道为什么史密斯在这样一个偏远地区航行, Chevalier suggested sinking the Templar's ship to be rid of him easily. However, Shay reminded him that Smith likely held the Box, and the Assassins therefore decided not to damage the ship.之后,史密斯驾船与莫瑞甘号展开遭遇战,并试图用烧油桶阻止她的追赶,谢伊紧追不舍,最终在特拉诺瓦将史密斯刺杀,取回了神器。[3]

Confrontation at the Homestead编辑

“Has Chevalier gone mad? He'll destroy the manor!”
―An Assassin seeing the Gerfaut bombarding the Davenport Homestead, 1756.[来源]

在谢伊从沃德罗普手中拿回手稿之后,导师达文波特派他前往里斯本寻找一枚位于Carmo Convent卡尔莫修道院地下的伊甸碎片。然而,在谢伊接触伊甸碎片的时候,引发了毁灭性的地震,几乎摧毁了这座城市。[3]

Chevalier and the Assassins confronting Shay

之后,在达文波特家园中,谢伊从阿基里斯那里偷走了手稿,为的是让刺客们无法继续寻找其他第一文明神庙。在行踪暴露之后,谢伊试图逃跑,阿基里斯向刺客下令以阻止他,骑士也命令海东青号轰炸谢伊。骑士及其他刺客将谢伊逼至悬崖,走投无路的谢伊试图跃入水中,维伦德里开枪打中了他的肩膀,使谢伊跌落海中,刺客们都以为他死了。It wasn't until August 1757 that the Assassins learned of Shay's survival and defection to the Templar Order.[3]

刺客远征 编辑

Chevalier:“So, cabbage farmer, are you still convinced the Templars are right?
Shay:“Convinced to the end. You bastard! Achilles and Liam have already headed north!
Chevalier:“Hope was right... I do make... a good... distraction.
——Chevalier during his final moments and Shay inspecting his charts, 1760.[来源]
The Heist 1

Chevalier meeting with the Assassins in New York

In 1759, the Assassins were preparing an expedition to another precursor site. In October of that year, they met at the New York harbor, discussing their progress. Chevalier told Achilles that although they were gathering ships and supplies, it was difficult to do so without a specific destination. Hope Jensen assured Chevalier that several of her men could participate in the expedition.[3]

Liam noted that Hope would soon be able to active the Box and find another precursor site, and the Assassins left the area. After Hope activated the Box in her mansion, Liam left with it and the Manuscript to meet with Chevalier in the Arctic. Afterwards, Shay chased after Hope and assassinated her. In her final words, Hope revealed that her death merely served as a distraction for Liam to reach Chevalier.[3]

Meeting with Liam, Chevalier was entrusted to keep the Box from falling into the Templars' hands. In order to do this, he sent the artifact away to an unknown location.[3]

A short time after, Chevalier sailed to an Assassin outpost on Anticosti, leaving encrypted maps of his route to the site in the hands of the captain there. Shay recovered these maps and enlisted the aid of James Cook in tracking down Chevalier and acquiring his charts of the precursor site. Knowing that Shay would chase after the Assassin expedition, Chevalier volunteered to stay behind with the Gerfaut and a fleet of ships to stop him.[3]

After the Morrigan sank the fleet, the Gerfaut ambushed it with mortars. Despite the Gerfaut's greater size and firepower, it was disabled by the Morrigan. It was soon boarded by Shay and his crew. As the two fought, Chevalier taunted the former Shay, claiming that while the former Assassin would be forgotten to history, Chevalier would be remembered for his deeds.[3]

Chevalier's final moments

A defeated Chevalier made his way to the ship's railing. As Shay approached him, he attempted to strike the Templar, only to be punched in the stomach. Looking at the charts, Shay was furious to discover that Achilles and Liam had already headed north to the site. Chevalier mocked his former colleague, claiming that Hope was right in that he had made a good distraction for him. In a fit of rage, Shay threw Chevalier overboard to a watery death. Chevalier's maps were subsequently bequeathed to Cook.[3]

His death was later recorded to have happened on 15 November 1761, when the ship he was on board, the Auguste, sank off Cape Breton.[1]

Personality and characteristics编辑

Gist:“From the brief encounters I've had with him, I can tell you he's an irascible person.
Shay:“That's a polite way of saying he's a cantankerous bastard.
——Shay Cormac and Christopher Gist discussing Chevalier, 1760.[来源]
The Way The Wind Blows 13

Chevalier berating Shay

Chevalier could often be seen as haughty, arrogant, short-tempered, and impatient, and was easily angered. Like most of his peers in the Colonial Brotherhood, Chevalier exhibited an intense dislike for Shay Cormac, believing him to be ignorant, reckless, and disrespectful. Chevalier also frequently mocked Shay's lower-class origins, calling him a "cabbage farmer". At one point, Chevalier's irritation with his fellow Assassin led him to fight Shay.[3]

He was also quick to correct Shay at any given opportunity, and usually underestimated his skills. He refused to acknowledge Shay's ship, the Morrigan, as anything more than a useless and ineffectual pile of junk, while praising his own ship and skills as a sailor. When Shay fought Chevalier in 1760, the latter was convinced that he could kill the Templar with ease.[3]

Despite this, Chevalier was loyal and dedicated to the Assassin cause, believing the Brotherhood to be faultless while reminding Shay not to question its actions and purpose. When Shay criticized Chevalier and pointed out an inherent contradiction in the Creed (albeit somewhat jokingly), he reacted with indignation and hit Shay, initiating a brawl between the two. He was highly proud of his membership within the Order, and looked up to other Assassins such as Adéwalé.[3]

Chevalier believed that negotiation with the Templars was impossible, jokingly asking Shay if he would "smile and wish them a good day as they lay their boot on [his] neck", when the latter suggested dialogue with their enemies. Chevalier was often very secretive about his activities, which caused his allies to be wary of him.[3]

When Shay pursued the Assassin expedition, Chevalier volunteered to distract him from Achilles and Liam. Even in his final moments, Chevalier attempted to attack Shay when the latter claimed to fully believe in the Templar cause.[3]

Equipment and skills编辑

“(I've been practicing my aim, I'll get a bullseye this time.)”
―Chevalier to Shay, 1760.[来源]
Cold Fire 6

Shay dueling Chevalier

Chevalier was among the most experienced sailors in the Colonial Brotherhood, captaining a Man O' War named the Gerfaut. He was able to use a snowstorm to surprise the Morrigan and bombard it with mortars.[3]

As an officer in the French Army and an Assassin, Chevalier was highly skilled in combat. Wielding a sword in conjunction with a pistol, he was able to kill several British sailors in a matter of seconds. Chevalier wore a long hooded black coat, as well as a leather bracer on his left arm. Like most Assassins, he wore a red belt, fastened with a buckle in the shape of the Assassin insignia.[3]

Trivia编辑

  • Historically, de la Verendrye died on Cape Breton while returning to France when the British began occupying his family's trading outposts at 1761. And his ship is called the Auguste, which is a frigate rather than the Man O' War, Gerfaut.
  • Among all members of the Colonial Assassins, Chevalier was the only one not seen wielding at least one Hidden Blade.
