Deborah Carter (Assassins Creed 3)
Something of a princess of the streets, Dobby - as she is known to friends - helps the poor and facilitates black market business deals for the Assassins. Once recruited, she can provide distractions for Connor.
Duncan Little (Assassins Creed 3)
This Irish Assassin used to be a priest, before he abandoned religion and set off to the New World in AC3. Recruiting him allows Connor to hire bodyguards in game.
Jacob Zenger (Assassins Creed 3)
A failed German farmer, Jacob moves to New York to start a new life in America. Hes a tough guy, and recruiting him grants the ability to call in a prison escort that fools nearby guards. Bit niche.
Jamie Colley (Assassins Creed 3)
More of an Assassin support-worker, Jamie is a trained physician. He mainly helps out the locals in New York, although having him on board allows Connor the ability to ambush enemies with Assassin recruits.
Louis Mills (Assassins Creed 3)
Who is Louis Mills? He was sent to trail Haytham Kenway on his voyage to the new world, dropping barrels from the ship to give Assassin boats something to follow. Sadly, his attempt to capture Haytham on board leads to his death.
Robert Faulkner (Assassins Creed 3)
Connors first-mate aboard the Aquila, Faulkner is a salty sea-dog who comes from a long line of sailors. He sailed with the Aquila most of his life, so technically, he just came with the ship itself.
Stephane Chapheau (Assassins Creed 3)
A French baker who is pushed too far by British forces in Boston, and decides to rebel. He causes a riot, then joins the Assassins Order shortly afterwards. Good moustache.
Aveline de Grandpre (born 1747) (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation)
Ah, Aveline - the only female protagonist in the Assassins Creed series. She joins the order to assist the plight of the poor and slaves, who are rife in the 18th century southern-states America she inhabits. Shes a social butterfly, mixing with poor and aristocrats alike, and she has some killer surprises hidden in that parasol of hers...
Aveline is the favourite of several developers...
Mikhail Lozanov: Creative Director Assassins Creed Rogue
"Aveline de Grandpr for her many faces in society. She can be fine Lady or killing machine while pursuing her noble cause."
Martin Capel: Game director at Ubisoft Sofia Studio
"Aveline de Grandpre and Shay Partick Cormac are two characters very close to my heart. Aveline was the first Assassin developed by Ubisoft Sofia and for us she had an inner strength that we could feel and believe in, and she was received with huge enthusiasm by everyone. Shay on the other hand has values that I can identify with; Assassin's Creed Rogue is the story of a boy maturing into a man and questioning his values and the values of those around him, and I can understand Shay's choices and decisions. For me this makes Shay feel very human."
Patience Gibbs (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation)
A former slave girl, sent to work in Newport, Rhode Island, Patience is eventually found and freed by Aveline, and recruited to the Assassin Order. Aveline helps her retrieve a mysterious charm during Liberation.
