As one with Persian heritage I take great interest in Persian history. Whether it is the Persian kings such as Cyrus, Darius, Xerxes, Cambyses, Ardavan, Ardashir, Shapour, Xosrov, Yazdegerd, etc... or whether it is Persian historical and heroic figures such as Rostam, Spandiar (Esfandiar), Ariobarzanes, Pirouz Nahavandi (Abu-Lu'lu'ah), Arash Kamangir, Papak Khorramdin (Babak Khorramdin), Radman Pour Mahak (Yaqub Leis Saffarid), etc...

I take pride in those such as "Ariobarzanes" who defeated Alexander's armies for several years, or "Papak Khorramdin" who was a true patriot and fought the invading enemies and in doing so he with his armies alone killed over 500,000 invading Arabs. I take great pride in the passion of 10th century Persian poet (Ferdowsi) who took on 35 years of burden and saved the Persian language from destruction after the Arab invasion of Persia A.K.A. Greater Iran by authoring the "Shahnama" (The Book of Kings).

But all this aside, I believe with a great rational view on this matter that if an Assassin's Creed game was to feature a Persian character who interacts with some of these historical figures throughout the game, with its origins based in "Persepolis" or "Ctesiphon" or "Babylon", it would not only be extremely interesting yet it would expand the cultural diversity as both Europe and American continents have already been covered.

Imagine a character named for example "Armand" meaning "Man of Army" in the Persian language. He was born in Spahan (Esfahan) during the Sassanian dynasty of Persia under the rule of king Xosrov Parviz and the game begins with a massive war scene of the "Sassanians" (Persia) vs "Byzantines" (Rome) in which the Persians have historically defeated the Romans on three separate occasions as the Byzantines tried to invade Persia. Imagine leading the Persian armies and eventually Armand is captured and taken in as a prisoner of war. Imagine riding across the Babylonian gates and having the save your country from war.

My story ideas may be quite dull but I seriously think that this "Persian Theme" would work extremely well. Specially with the next generation console graphics; and not to mention that the very word "ASSASSIN" originates from the Persian word "Hashashin".


What's your thoughts?
