This is a list of characters in the Assassin s Creed series.
He is the primary protagonist of the Assassin's Creed series. He is a descendant of both Altaïr ibn La-Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze, based on in game glyph Desmond may be a cross-breed between human and Those Who Came Before, making him and his ancestor have extraordinary abilities.
Desmond was born at an assassin hideout much like Masyaf, a modern day Assassin enclave called "The Farm", isolated and "off the grid" as it was. Desmond was apparently supposed to be born and raised as an assassin. He was unable to leave this small community of thirty or so people, but wanted to as he believed that they were "just a bunch of hippies who wanted to stick it to the man." He later escapes by himself, claiming that he wanted to see the rest of the world. Desmond states that he has no regrets leaving his father or mother and at one point when Vidic accuses him of being an assassin he responds "I'm not an assassin…not anymore." At some time in his life, Desmond became a bartender. Desmond never used his real name before being taken. He used cash only, and he was found by Abstergo from his fingerprint needed for a motorcycle license.
Assassin's Creed's story starts off with flashes of Altaïr in a cloudy area which turns out to be the garden at the back of the home base in Masyaf where a bunch of women in white clothes come out (like most clothes in the game). After about five minutes, Desmond wakes up to find himself on top of a machine and two figures with lab coats near him. He has no recollection of getting to where he is now and is told that he is being held captive. When he questions why, the answer he receives is somewhat unbelievable.
