The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey characters are based on mixtures of fictional and historically accurate characters, to increase the experience that you will get. But not only this particular game, the Assassin’s Creed franchise is also really famous since every series is always got its own connection to the famous historical event. Although it was only a fictional story the feeling of similarities is definitely stunning. Like, can you describe the feeling when Leonardo Da Vinci created a hidden blade for you? For me, it’s like a dream come true.
Since the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game is based on the Peloponnesian war era, then it means there will be lots of historically accurate non-playable characters that you will meet one by one whether they will become your enemies or allies. And with this compilation, let’s reveal who are they in and outside the game.
The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Character Honorable mention: Alexios And Kassandra
Mentioning these Assassin’s Creed Odyssey characters is important as they are the playable ac odyssey protagonist characters that you can choose before the game begins. Although the game will flow in similar ways, both of them are quite different from each other regardless of their sibling status. Alexios, for example, is the one with a more tragic life since he was thrown from the summit to face his death because of the false prophet that was widespread by the Cult of Kosmos. In adult life, Alexios then becomes the “dog” of the Cult and Kassandra becomes the next Eagle Bearer and inherited the staff of Hermes from Pythagoras.
Pythagoras was a well-known philosopher in ancient Greece who founded so many mathematical and scientific discoveries including the infamous Pythagorean theorem and founded a school that focused on learning metaphysical. Within the game, Pythagoras is responsible for inheriting the staff of Hermes to Kassandra once she becomes an adult.
Another well-known philosopher within ac odyssey characters is also mentioned here in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game. Plato was the inventor of the Academy – the genesis of every institute or university in the present world. within the game, Plato was introduced as a young boy who hates his name, Aristokles. Then he was encouraged to change his name to Plato.
Socrates was the main teacher of Plato and also the father our modern philosophy. Within the game, Socrates is the debate companion of the main player who always commented whenever the player tells everything about life and philosophies. In my opinion, he is one of the most unique characters in the game.
The King of Leonidas I
Alright, from the infamous philosophers to the infamous warrior within the land of ancient Greece. The King of Spartans, Leonidas the first was also one of The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey characters which appeared the first within the game. He is also the one who lead the 300 armies of Spartans and fight back thousands of Persian army during the war of Thermopylae. In the game, Leonidas is the one who bears the broken spear of Hermes that will be inherited by His bloodline, Kassandra.
Responsible as the negotiator of the peace between Athens and Sparta, Archidamus II definitely befits to become the king of Spartans during the Peloponnesian war. Within the, he is also the one responsible for the death of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Main Character – Alexios. He sides with the elder ended up with the execution of the little descendant of Leonidas by throwing them from the summit.
One of the infamous ancient historical figures is Polykleitos who carved the infamous Canon of Polykleitos, the statues of an ideal male body that he envisioned based on mathematical calculation. In the game, he was still portrayed as a sculptor but his tools are stolen by bandits, then the misthios was hired to recover them, unknowingly he actually hired the eagle bearer. As a feeling of gratitude, Polykleitos wanted to meet them after he finds out who they was.
Another sculptor mentioned within the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey characters in the game is the infamous sculptor named Phidias. He is the one who was responsible for creating the statue of Zeus at the Olympia that became one of the wonders of the ancient world. in the game, the Cult of Kosmos targeted Phidias due to his connection with Perikles, and Misthios was hired to fly him to Athens.
The infamous general of Athens, but also responsible for promoting Athens great assets – art and literature that makes the city becomes the cultural center. Within the game, he is actually the one who helped Phidias in moving him to Athens to avoid the Cult of Kosmos.
Was also known as the Father of Comedy in ancient Greece. His work included the opera of Ancients Author that he delivered in a better way compared to the other author. In the AC Odyssey game, Aristophanes was the one who hired Misthios in multiple tasks, including the investigation of Hermippos and his connection with the Cult of Kosmos.
That’s all the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey characters compilations, these are the figures that are well-known as the basis of all modern knowledge that we have in this very moment. After playing and doing The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review earlier I noticed that I was more and more curious about some of the characters in this game. Ubisoft did a very good job in keeping their role as it is, as well as making a fictional connection between them and the main character in a good way. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game is definitely one of the best games to play if you want to flash back the memories of ancient times.
