I always like how that worked out, it was a clean way of tying all the story's together, is it known?

probably not

Arno isn't an ancestor of Desmond either

I think they tied up Desmond's story completely with AC4.

I think they confirmed at one point he wasn't an ancestor, but I could have been fed misleading information.

Actually that would be very interesting if Shay was an ancestor of Desmond.

Out if curiosity where was it said Arno wasn't an ancestor? I assumed he was because in the emails we hacked in ac4 it says he has an ancestor in the French Revolution.

Doubt it.....Desmond's only ancestors during this Era is Haytham and Connor.

And this 'French Revolution' ancestor could be Elise or just some ancestor that was just present at the period.

Desmond would have had hundreds of ancestors in the 18th century, but we only know a few by name. It's unlikely Shay is an ancestor of Desmond (unless he's related to Haytham) and I have read that Arno is not either. It looks like we won't see much more of Desmond's family tree, except for Bill Miles.

Maybe Shay's related to Ezio. Shay could have been from Desmond's mother side, ya know.

Why would you think he's related to Ezio? Better yet, why would he be related to Desmond? Desmond's done, his story ended in Black Flag. And it's already been confirmed that Arno isn't related to him... They've moved on.

I don't think he's related to Ezio, or Desmond for that matter. I'm just making a suggestion since people are so keen on linking every ancestor to Desmond.

No one did that with Adewale, Aveline, and Nikolai.

Except at one point, I thought Aveline was through Connor, but that's Connorline talk. :rolleyes:

They weren't major protagonists, though.

Good point. But to be fair, there WAS talk about Aveline being an ancestor. And Adewale was a side character in Black Flag. It would be awkward. As for Nikolai, well, Nikolai already had a modern day protagonist. His name is Crosse--I-I mean Cross. Daniel Cross.

@Fatal

I understand.....I don't think Desmond has had a single female lead ancestor, or a Black one for that matter.

Plus a Russian!!! Well there's always Galina. ;)

Wasn't there some BS excuse in the encyclopedia that said you can only relive memories of ancestors of your own gender, otherwise you have sync issues?

So Desmond can't relive Maria's, Sofia's, Connor's wife, Caroline's, or Tessa's memories? And every ancestor of Galina HAS to be a female!? *Aveline hint*.

But that can't be....subject 1 could relive Aveline perfect, at least till the "incident".

Retcon then. I know at one point they said that you could only relive memories within your gender.

Aveline memories were extracted from subject 1, a guy, so not only Aveline memories were not extracted from Desmond, although they could still be related, but a man synchronizing with a woman is possible.
