Hi Everyone.
I have turned my Norway Theory into a video.
Check it out and let me know what you think.

Would be nice if we went to Finland to kill Otso Berg and have a tea with SixKeys.

Hey Col. Good effort with the video.

Like you, I firmly believe that the Initiates lore was not created without reason. It seems apparent to me that they were building the back stories to characters we might actually see in the Modern Day. Now it has been confirmed that the initiates lore writer, James Nadiger, is also responsible for Syndicate's modern day - the link is very telling. I'll pop my further comments behind a spoiler tag..

You may very well be right about the protagonists being Gavin or Galina. It's possible it may be both of them, mirroring the dual character set up we have with Jacob and Evie. As with those two, we have Gavin who is an infiltration specialist, and Galina as the well regarded fighter. Interesting parallels there.

In my view, if we only have one character, it is likely to be Galina. I did a whole thread about why I think this is the case, but suffice to say of all the members of the Altair II, she is the only one with the skill set that would match a player character in my opinion. (namely the skills she has acquired through the bleeding effect, just the same as Desmond). Of course, it's entirely possible that there is an entirely new character we may play as. Or perhaps we are a floating tablet wielder again! But those concept arts of Galina are good evidence to the contrary in my view. I guess we'll see, but as a Modern Day fan I'm excited to find out.

(One small thing, your pronunciation of Galina totally makes sense, but Berg pronounces her name as Gah-leena in AC Rogue. I prefer that version, but nay mind! :p)

I swear, you know what would be ultimate troll? Galina, Gavin and everyone appear and we are in the Norway but we are actually playing some silent "protagonist" in first person. Imagine Galina talking to you instead of playing as her.

That would make me explode. If you're gonna give us Galina, do it right!

The Dual character system would be awesome, as Galina and Gavin are two fan favourite characters.

Could Initiates have been created for the purpose of giving us these new characters?

Not a big fan of Galina, I don't particularly like her design and story, and Galina sounds a lot like Galinha, the Portuguese word for chicken which doesn't help.

Personnally, I would prefer to play an initiate. If that would be the case, we could completly customize the modern day character. We could play with other player. we could explore the initiates HeadQuarter. Also, since we could customize our modern day protagoniste, we could see everything he/she does 3rd person style. ^-^
