Default Re: Assassins Creed: Rogue

Looks like Shay's a true former-Assassin-turned-Templar, as opposed to Haythem's Templar with Assassin skills. His monologue also speaks to a personal conviction leading to his defection. Hopefully, this means we'll see a more nuanced portrayal of the Templar and Assassin ideologies and both sides positive and negative impacts. I figure Shay will be responsible for the destruction of most of the New World order of Assassins, and maybe even the New World Order of the Templars; Haythem's putting together his own branch at the same time, so maybe Shay hunted Templars when he was an assassin only to turn on his brethren afterwards.

And I figure Shay may be Elise's father, and maybe he argues for a kind of anti-chaos philosophy his daughter will express to Arno in his game. Unity definitely seems to imply that the Revolution that Arno will help unleash may grow too wild for even him.

I do like the Genre-Savvy nature of Shay deciding to shoot a wounded assassin rather than wander within his reach; he's at least more pragmatic than the Red Viper of Dorne.
