I wonder if they'll ever explain why Ezio, Altair, and Desmond had the exact same scars. Anyways, is it just me, or does Connor actually not look like Desmond this time around?

Its because in AC1 - AC:B the animus projected desmonds face onto his ancestors. Once Desmond was more comfortable with the Animus, he got to see his ancestors real faces.

I guess it's somewhat ok since we not playing a generic Desmond skin in Assassin robes but idk, Hawke does looks a little more unique this time around over Altair and Desmond ;)

I thought that too, but that doesn't explain why Ezio didn't have the scar at the beginning of AC2, then miraculously had the same scar Desmond had when he got struck as a teen, by a rock from some gang member. I'm guessing the AC team had some kind of plan to reveal the revelation about the scars, until they decided the idea was probably too dumb to actually put in the game.

Some gang member?? He got struck by the almighty Vieri de' Pazzi!!

Is probably more of a "Anyone boy in this line of descendants will have a bloody scar"

But Ezio and Altair have the same lip scar in ACR. Even when the animus is showing their real face.

I think they originally planned for Desmond and his ancestors to all have the same face but then decided not to when they were halfway through the series. I don't really mind it as long as Desmond goes back to looking like he did before Revelations.

Ezio and Alta´r having the same scar was just an amusing way to link the two ancestors. If you want an in-game explanation for it, just see it as an incredible coincidence. I'm not bothered at all that Connor doesn't have one, scars don't run in the family, after all.

I originally thought that too. As a matter of fact, I even thought Desmond is the reincarnation of Ezio and Altair lol. I actually don't mind that Connor, Ezio, and Altair look different than Desmond. But, just like you, I want Desmonds original look before Revelations.

The huge bear's eye in the background... O_O Pretty amazing!

Anyways, I hope Connor gets the scar sometime during the game. Just like Ezio did. It doesn't really make much sense that the four of them have exactly the same scar, but I always thought it was a nice touch. It kind of hints that they're special, in a way. :)

Not, he's not a redcoat officer. He just has a big red collar showing above his blue uniform. In fact, you can easily see his full body in the scenes before that screenshot.

The scar is more symbolic than anything else. It's just a running theme they've used. It's nothing to do with the animus. Stop looking so deep into it. Next you'll be asking why all 3 protagonists wear hoods.

I saw it as like they all share similar destinies, such as at some point they all received a similar scar.

it's because they connection don't you see? Altair passed the messenger for Ezio to Desmond it's the link, same scar, same name means Eagle(Altair and Ezio)it's just the destiny connection.

It's actually Israel Putnam. He brought tobacco from Cuba to the US, hence why he is smoking.

About the scar I'm sure they will give him the scar later in the game. A Desmond descendant is nothing without the scar, jk! xD

There could be a logical explanation as to why Desmond's face looks different in AC:R. He is inside the animus, after all.

Yes. Thank you. In the few seconds we saw him in the van outside the Animus, he looked nothing like the infamous "Niko Bellic" face we saw in the Black Room.

Did Mohawk people even sported something that's known today as the mohawk hairstyle? I think I've read that it's just a common misconception

He looks old there....maybe that's a render of his model towards/at the end of the game? I've never seen that before. I wanted a mohawk too. Misconception or no, that would make him look so bad@ss. Would be a cool extra skin too if you could see him in like the classic indian tribal gear and mohawk. Runnin around plantin a tomahawk in people's skulls.

I agree, that scene will probably be somewhere near the end, Connor seems to be around his 30s, 28-33 years to be exact.

This is kind of a two month old thread, friend... Perhaps it was best to let it lie.

That said, I still hold my ground that Connor looks way older than his age. It's not a bad thing, but wow... he's no Ezio, who was 20 well into his forties.

They typically don't have a lot of facial hair, but since Connor's dad was European, he might.

Rugged perhaps. Not handsome in the traditional sense.

Very defined features and an intense, alpha male, hero sort of demeanour.

Never been a fan of male pony-tails, honestly :nonchalance:

The braid is pretty sweet though. I probably would've been more fond of the look if it was just medium-length hair with the braid, no pony-tail. Hell, for me, even Ezio barely pulled that off :p

The ponytail might not be permanent. It looks kinda sloppily tied back, I think he might just do that while he's acting as a captain to keep his hair from whipping around and getting in his eyes on the high seas.

GLHS

Yeah, I was gonna say something like that. Since he's not in an Assassin outfit, he might just have his hair different. Idk if that's how he'll wear it normally, but if so, that's fine. Still like that mohawk idea....but yes, he is quite attractive. But so was Ezio. Gotta keep the straight ladies and gay men happy I guess :)
