- "Jacob, your sister is right. You disobeyed my orders and didn't even care to listen. You acted too brash, and you could have gotten yourself killed."
- ―Alana scolding Jacob Frye after the Liberation of Devil's Acre, August 1868.
Dame Alana Rose Dorian (1840-1931) was a Master Assassin of the British Brotherhood from 1861 to 1869, and again from 1874 to 1901. Known as The Iron Rose, Alana played a role in the formation of the Brotherhood of the German Empire, serving as its first Mentor from 1871 to 1874 while living in Berlin. Alana would assume leadership of the British Brotherhood upon her mother's retirement in September of 1876 and led the British Assassins into the next century until 1901. Alana was also known for her work as an Assassin theorist, ranging from coming up with new ways to assassinate Templars to how she would right the wrongs of former Assassins. She was the only child born to Master Assassins Juliette Marie Dorian and Samuel Marshall, the niece of French Master Assassin Francois Charles Dorian, and the granddaughter of French Master Assassins Arno Dorian and Elise de la Serre. She is of French, British, Austrian, Welsh, and German descent.
Alana is the only member of the legendary Dorian Family of Assassins to be knighted, becoming a member of the Order of the Sacred Garter in 1868.
Early Years Edit
Alana Rose Dorian was born in the early hours of November 8th, 1840 in her Mother's room within the Goff House in Crawley, to her mother Juliette Marie Dorian and Samuel Marshall. An adventurous child in her youth, her mother would always set up mini treasure hunts within the Goff Mansion and the surrounding area to satisfy her daughter's needs. She would always accompany her parents on trips to Crawley, and watch her parents free-run across the rooftops. When Alana was six years old, Juliette took her daughter to Egypt, showing Alana the hotel and cafe her grandmother had stayed forty-seven years prior. Alana remembered the trip fondly, remembering the time where her and her mother drank tea inside the Eagle Talon Hotel and Cafe, burning her tongue on her green tea. Afterwards, Juliette took Alana out to the Great Pyramids with her daughter on her shoulders, letting her sit on one of the blocks.
Juliette told her the story of how Elise had to stay inside the pyramid to wait out a severe dust storm. After this, Juliette showed Alana the ruined former tomb of Bayek, the Medjay who would ultimately go on to form the precursor to the Assassins. After explaining who's tomb it was, Alana was eager to find out who Bayek is. Juliette calmed Alana down, and they returned to their hotel room, where Juliette informed Alana that they will be visiting Bayek's real tomb bright and early the next morning.
After a seven hour carriage ride, Juliette, Alana, and Bernie Willows arrived at Hotep Cavern, and let the two ladies walk inside, where Juliette showed Alana Bayek's coffin, as well as Amunet's, which had fallen down into a crevasse. Alana again asked her mother who Bayek was, only for her mother to tell her that they will be visiting Bayek's home of Siwa, and she will tell her who he was there.
After another two hour carriage ride, the trio arrived at Siwa, and pitched a tent. After her mother started a fire, Alana asked her mother again who Bayek was. Juliette informed her daughter of who Bayek was and what he did over his lifetime, as well as the tragedy that happened underneath the Temple of Amun, and that she would show her the temple itself the next day. The next morning, with Alana on her shoulders, Juliette took her to the Temple and informed her that Alexander the Great visited the Temple and was proclaimed the Son of Amun by the Oracle, and that he used a powerful staff to open the vault beneath the temple, which was blocked by rubble and debris. After their visit to the temple, Alana and Juliette returned to Bernie, who got them back to Cairo safely.Early in the morning, Alana woke up to see her father standing in their hotel room. She got up from her bed and hugged her father, who came from India to meet up with them and take them home. After showing her father her outfit, Sam escorted Juliette and her daughter to the docks to meet up with the captain who would be getting them back home safely, Steven Blair. The trio boarded his ship, and set sail for England. On the journey back to England, Juliette informed Alana that she will be taking her as her apprentice. Upon their return to Crawley, Alana began training under her mother, in the ways of combat and lore of the Creed. Alana would train under her mother for fourteen years. She received her first Hidden Blade at the age of eighteen.
Master Assassin Edit
On November 12th, 1861 Alana and Juliette made a trip to London to pick up some morphine for an ailing Elise, where they were set upon by the Blighters, the street gang associated with the Templar Order. Alana and Juliette were forced into combat, with their Hidden Blades and kukris against their rusted knives and flaming boards. Alana and Juliette succeeded in defending themselves against their adversaries, with Alana fighting remarkably well for a woman of her age. Alana didn't escape the fight unscathed however, as she sustained minor burns on her arms. Juliette promised Alana that she would tell Leonard Frye of how Alana handled herself in London.
Returning to Crawley three days after the attack, with Juliette and Alana being praised for their bravery. Leonard was so impressed with the way Alana handled herself in combat, and awarded Alana the rank of Master Assassin at the age of twenty one, a few short days before her grandmother passed away.
Return to Egypt Edit
In August of 1865, Alana sat in her quarters reading about the adventures of her grandmother Elise, which were logged in her diary, which was handed down to Alana once Elise passed away. Alana read about the adventures of her grandmother in Britain, France, the United States and the Ottoman Empire. Alana was about to put the diary away until two pages that were stuck together caught her attention. Using an envelope opener, Alana pried the two pages open to discover that her grandmother had gone to Egypt in the year 1800 and discovered three keys that were used to seal away the tomb of Bayek, the founder of the organized Assassin Order. Alana desired to go to Egypt, but needed the help of a fellow Assassin. Alana packed up Elise's diary and went over to the Eagle Head Pub in the heart of Crawley to meet up with her friend Maria Williams, who was finishing up her shift at the pub. Over a beer, Alana expressed to Maria that she desired to to go to Egypt and retrieve the keys to study them back in Crawley, and that she wanted Maria to come with her to Egypt. Maria agreed, and the pair walked back to the Goff Mansion.
When they arrived, they were greeted by Jacob, who let them in. Upon arriving downstairs, Juliette and Cordelia had a discussion about Alana's desire to visit Egypt. Alana informed her mother that she wanted to retrieve the keys and bring them back to Crawley to study them and their origins. Juliette asked Alana what she would do with the keys if Templars caught wind of their presence. Alana had no answer until Maria suggested Bayek's new tomb at Hotep Cavern. Juliette allowed Alana and Maria to return to Egypt and retrieve the keys. After thanking her mother, Alana returned to her room and was greeted by her husband Albert, whom she spent the rest of the night with before preparing her trip to Egypt.
The next morning, Alana and Maria got themselves prepared for their trip and were greeted by Juliette, who informed them that their carriage had arrived. After bidding their final farewells, Alana and Maria made their way out to their carriage that carried them to the port city of Portsmouth.
Upon arriving in Portsmouth, Alana and Maria searched for a ship to get them to Egypt, which led them to a British tea freighter named the Manticore, captained by David Clyde Walters. He allowed the two women to board the ship and help themselves to the tea he had below deck in their quarters. Alana and Maria boarded, and stood up on top on the deck for the first few hours of the trip before retreating to their quarters to taste some of David's tea.
Arriving in Egypt, Alana and Maria took in the sights of the City of Cairo and the Bazaar as they made their way over to the Eagle Talon Hotel and Cafe. As they arrived, Alana noticed that the Cafe was gone, and a pub was in its place, much to her confusion. The pair entered and checked in with the help of Henry Willows, and walked through the pub. The mood changed when a drunken man grabbed Alana's right buttock. Alana confronted the men, before knocking the one responsible out cold with her right fist. After the confrontation ended, Alana and Maria made their way up to their hotel room, where they were visited by the owner of the hotel. He asked Alana what had happened. Alana informed him that she knocked out a man who grabbed her right buttock. Upon hearing this, he asked for her name. She informed him, and hearing that her name was Alana, he asked if her mother was Juliette. When Alana said yes, he handed her a letter from 1813, which was written by someone with the initial K, and had information about the keys they were after. Examining the letter, there were three locations: Pyramid, Philae, and an unknown location Alana couldn't make out. After Henry left, the pair began to unwind and prepare for their adventure tomorrow.
Alana and Maria arrived at the Great Pyramid to begin the search for the first key. After reminiscing about the first time she visited the Pyramid, the pair navigated all the faces of Khufu's pyramid from top to bottom, until Maria called Alana over to the southern face of the pyramid where Maria had discovered an entrance into an unknown vault within the pyramid. Alana and Maria explored the vault, and discovered a puzzle at the end of it. Alana let Maria try and solve it before she intervened using her gift, which gave Alana the correct answer to the puzzle. Maria pushed the buttons in the correct order, which allowed the Assassins to recover the first of Bayek's keys. Alana and Maria exited the vault and sealed it again, and returned to their hotel, looking for a way to get to Philae.
Alana and Maria found a way down to Philae, which was through a sailor named Alborz. After paying a fee of thirty pounds, Alborz sailed the pair down to Philae. When they arrived in the evening, Alana and Maria blended in with tourists to scour the temple for a hidden entrance to the key. Veering away from them, Maria discovered etchings of the key's appearance carved on to pillars. Maria stepped onto a mechanism that activated a trap door, sending Maria plummeting down into the abyss. Alana approached the hole and could hear Maria inform her that he may have found another key. Alana slid down hole and leaped over a spike pit to meet up with Maria, where they observed an etching of the temple of Isis above them. Maria placed her hand on the altar, which ultimately revealed another key. Alana clipped the key onto her belt and the pair made their way out of the vault under the Temple. Upon their exit, Alana discovered the location of the third and final key: Abu Simbel, which was across the river.
Alana and Maria found a felucca that wasn't in use and used it to get their way across the choppy waters of the Nile. Once they made their way over, Alana and Maria rushed over to the magnificent temple. After marvelling at the temple, Alana and Maria entered the sandy temple to search for the final key. At the back of the temple, Alana and Maria scoured the area until Alana ran her hand over an etching, which revealed the final key. As soon as the final key was in their possession, the pair were ambushed by Italian Templar Enrico Do'relli and his thugs. Alana and Maria fended off the thugs until a smoke screen engulfed them, with Enrico capturing Alana. He stated that in order to get Alana back, she had to hand the keys over to him. Maria refused. As Alana was about to be killed, she stabbed Enrico in the gut with her Hidden Blade, causing him to drop his weapon. After he attempted to plead with them, they stabbed him in the heart. His final words to Alana were that his wife would make her pay. Alana dismissed this and assisted Maria in burying their bodies. Once they finished, they left the area and sought out Alborz, who got them back to Cairo safely.
Upon their arrival in Cairo, Alana thanked Alborz for everything. She looked up to see Maria talking with Henry Willows, the owner of the Eagle Talon Hotel and Pub. Approaching them, Maria informed them that he could take them out to Hotep Cavern so they could bury the keys. After checking out of their hotel, Henry got them into his carriage and got them to Hotep Cavern.
Alana and Maria entered the cave and eventually entered the tomb. Alana looked for a place to hide the keys while Maria took in al the history inside the tomb. Alana buried the keys beside the sarcophagus of Bayek, and heard Maria yell from the other side of the cavern. She looked up to see Amunet's sarcophagus plummet into the ground, and Maria grasping onto a stalagmite. Alana helped Maria up and the pair exited the tomb to catch a carriage ride back to the Great Pyramid, where they sat atop it and began to talk about a multitude of topics such as how each of them became Assassins, how they met their lovers, and what made them want to become Assassins while they waited for the Manticore to take them back to Crawley.
Investigating the Death of Thomas D'Arcy McGee Edit
In late March of 1868, Juliette sent Alana to Ottawa, the capital city of the young country of Canada, with the hopes of setting up a Brotherhood in the country. Upon arriving at the docks, Alana spied a woman with red hair wearing French Assassin robes. That woman was Alana's cousin Gabrielle, who had earned the rank of Master Assassin as well. She informed Alana that her father sent her to Canada as well, with the hopes of starting a Brotherhood.
On April 7th, Thomas D'Arcy McGee, the man who was chosen to be the Mentor of the Canadian Assassins, was assassinated outside his home. Close friends of the fallen politician begged Alana and Gabrielle to find the man behind the assassination. After investigating for several hours, Alana and Gabrielle had no luck in finding the killer. The next day, Alana and Gabrielle were informed of all the suspects who were arrested. The two of them were directed to a suspect named Patrick Buckley, who was the stable hand of John A. MacDonald, the Prime Minister. He informed them of a scruffy looking Irishman with the last name of Whelan. Later on in the evening, Alana and Gabrielle went to a pub owned by a man named Michael Starr, where they each ordered a pint of Alexander Keith's. Sitting beside them was a man mumbling about a Fenian takeover. Alana asked the man what he was talking about, before the bartender called him by his last name. Alana realized that they had their man. Whelan aggresively shoved Alana into Gabrielle in an attempt to escape, spilling Alana's beer in the process. Alana quickly grabbed Whelan and applied a rear naked choke, dropping to the ground and wrapping her legs around him, preventing him from escaping while Gabrielle went to call for the police outside. Once they arrived, Alana let go of the hold, and watched as the police began to search Whelan. On him, they found several items that linked him to the assassination of McGee, and arrested him on the spot. The next day, Alana and Gabrielle hand picked Isaiah Summers to become the first Mentor of the Canadian Assassins, helping him set up bureaus in Ottawa and Toronto. Shortly after, Alana parted ways with Gabrielle, who returned to France. Alana was greeted by a courier who handed her a letter. The letter was from her mother, stating that the Frye twins had disobeyed her orders and went to London with the intent to liberate it from Templar influence, and that Jacob had nearly crashed the British economy with the death of Templar Phillip Twopenny. Juliette requested that Alana go from Ottawa to London to assist the twins in bringing Starrick down. Alana complied, and boarded the next ship to London.
Assisting the Fryes in London Edit
Alana arrived in London shortly after the assassination of John Elliotson in late April. Upon arrival, Alana immediately sought out the train that was conducted by Agnes MacBean, an ally of the twins. Boarding it hoping to find the twins, she was greeted by Henry Green instead. Alana and Henry talked about several topics, such as the arrival of the Fryes, Crawford Starrick, and the state of London. Alana was shocked when Henry told her about the Fryes arriving in London. Henry told her he was the same, not knowing that they had disobeyed Juliette's orders. Alana asked Henry where she could find Evie, to which Henry replied that she could be found on the London Bridge. Alana thanked Henry and set off to find her. Alana found Evie right where Henry said she was. Alana approached Evie, who was surprised to see her. After talking for a few moments about how the twins came to London and the twins disobeying Juliette's orders, Evie informed Alana that the Blighters were messing around with trade upon the River Thames. Alana informed Evie that she would assist her in combating the Blighters interfering with trade on the Thames. Evie and Alana would pair up together frequently to disrupt the Blighter trade and quietly liberated the seven districts of London from Blighter influence while Jacob continued his crusade against the Templar Order. Alana assisted in Evie's assassination of Lucy Thorne, the daughter of Alfred Thorne, who was assassinated by Alana's mother Juliette back in 1847. She also assisted in helping Evie cleaning up Jacob's messes. She helped Evie fix the distributions of medicines in Lambeth, resolve crises in the Omnibus business, and restore the British economy after Jacob's hasty assassinations.
Working closely with Jacob, Alana informed him of a man who goes by the pseudonym of 'B' who frequents the Sinopean Club that could be Starrick's pawn in British politics. Jacob returned to Alana to inform her that he found a spy hired by 'B' to spy on Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, and that the spy ended up getting killed by a sniper. He said that he interrogated the Sniper, who told him under duress that their target was affiliated with the Hussars, and that the Blighters were going to attack Disraeli's carriage. Alana tasked him with protecting the Prime Minister and his wife the next morning. Early in the afternoon, Jacob returned to Alana, informing her that he did rescue Disraeli and his wife, but did not learn of who 'B' was. Mary Anne Disraeli said she would inform Jacob of who 'B' was the next night if he took her through Devil's Acre. Alana wasn't too keen on the idea, but let Jacob escort Mrs. Disraeli through Devil's Acre the next night if it meant they would get a name as to who 'B' was. Alana began to think that it was James Brudenell, who was protesting the Corrupt Practices Bill in Parliament. Later on that night, Jacob returned to Alana with name of 'B', who was James Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, proving Alana's suspicions right. Alana tasked Jacob with eliminating him silently, as to not draw any suspicion. Jacob succeeded in his mission much to Alana's delight, but Evie came back, angry after cleaning up Jacob's mess with Twopenny with her preventing severe inflation and restoring the Bank's printing plates to the bank itself. Alana broke up the fight, and reminded them that they still had to liberate Devil's Acre.
Arriving at Devil's Acre, Alana was going to inform the twins of the plan to liberate Devil's Acre, which would be the only stronghold Jacob would help them with. Just as they were about to carry out their plan, Jacob darted off into the slum ignoring Alana's plan. Upset with Jacob, Alana and Evie carried on with the plan, where Alana infiltrated the tallest building in the slum to burn Blighter plans, and go on to assist the Fryes in picking off the Blighters. Alana succeeded in burning the plans, but got knocked down by Lilla Graves, the gang leader of Westminster. Alana squared up with Graves in hand to hand combat, sustaining several shots to her belly, cracking three of Alana's ribs. Graves was about to finish Alana off, but Evie intervened, and engaged Graves in combat. Alana landed a kick that landed flush with Graves' chin, allowing both Evie and Alana to end Graves with thrusts by their Hidden Blades. After dusting themselves off, they heard Jacob taunting five Blighters. Alana and Evie leaped out the window and helped Jacob fend off the last of the Blighters. After liberating Devil's Acre, Jacob began to recruit Rooks out of former Blighters, while Alana went into Lilla Graves' office, and compared documents she had received from her mother about Devil's Acre to a map of the area on the desk of Graves. As she was comparing the documents, Alana could hear Jacob and Evie arguing. Alana called the twins into the office, where Evie called Jacob out on his strategy. Jacob tried to explain himself by saying that his strategy whittled the Templars down to nothing. Alana retorted that his strategy also led to the near downfall of the British economy. Jacob stormed off, not wanting to do anything with Alana or his sister. After Jacob's abrupt departure, Alana and Evie returned to the train, where they sat down and began to plot the downfall of Starrick.
Later on in the evening, Alana and Henry Green witnessed the Alhambra Music Hall was on fire. After watching it burn for a little longer, Alana informed Henry that she would investigate to see if Jacob played any role in the fire. Alana arrived to see the firemen attempting to put out the burning music hall. Weaving her way through the crowd, she spied Jacob sitting in the tree, drifting off to sleep. Alana called out to him, to which he didn't reply. Alana used her rope launcher to pull Jacob down, with the latter landing in a haystack. She led him to a back alley, where Jacob confessed to Alana that he had assassinated Maxwell Roth. Alana was furious with Jacob. When Alana asked him why, Jacob quoted Roth, and slapped Alana openly on the buttocks. In response, Alana backhanded Jacob so hard that a couple of his teeth flew out. After the altercation, Alana escorted Jacob back to the train. Upon returning to the train, Alana ordered Jacob to go to sleep, and returned to the second car, informing Henry of what had happened. Alana then returned to the first car and went to sleep, bring her chaotic day to an end.
Defeating Crawford Starrick Edit
The next day, Alana awoke to hear Jacob and Evie arguing. As she got out of bed, she watched as Henry stormed by her with intent to break up the argument. Alana showed up to assist Henry with doing so as well. Henry informed the twins that Starrick's plan was to acquire the Piece of Eden at the Ball at Buckingham Palace tonight and use it to eliminate all heads of church and state. Evie and Jacob promised to work together one last time. Alana agreed to help assist the twins, unless the scenario was dire. After meeting with the Disraelis, Jacob managed to snag the Gladstone's invitations to the ball, while Evie procured the plans to Buckingham Palace from Duleep Singh.
While the Fryes infiltrated the Ball, Alana and Henry infiltrated the sewers after Evie had sent Jacob after Starrick. Once both of the twins were down in the Tomb of Prince Albert fighting Starrick, Alana used her Eagle Vision to see that Starrick had both of them in a chokehold, slowly draining the life out of them. Henry had heard enough, and went in to go protect Evie. After seeing Henry get taken out, Alana intervened as Evie was engaging Starrick in combat. Alana pulled the Shroud of Eden off of Starrick's shoulders, and clothesline him over the altar. Alana restrained Starrick as the Frye Twins delivered the final blow, and with the death of Starrick, London was liberated from the Templars.
The next morning, Alana, Henry, Evie, and Jacob got knighted. After getting knighted, Henry and Alana watched as the twins ran off towards the train. A courier showed up and handed Alana a letter after Henry left. Alana read the letter, fell to her knees and broke down into tears after learning about her husband's passing from typhoid fever. While she was grieving, Queen Victoria allowed Alana to stay at Buckingham Palace for a few weeks to help with her mourning.
While staying at the Palace to look after her children, Alana informed Queen Victoria of a group of Templars wanting to retake the city under the name of the Templars once again, and told her to relay the information of the Templar plot to Jacob and Evie, due to Alana wanting to stay in isolation and look after her kids.
A few days after the Templar plot was foiled by Jacob and Evie, Alana was surprised to see that her best friend Maria Williams had made the travel to London with urgent news. Over their discussion, Maria informed Alana that she had stolen Albert's autopsy report to find that it had been covered up by the Templars. Albert didn't pass away from typhoid fever, he was poisoned with cyanide. Sadness overwhelmed Alana until Maria showed her a note that was found on Albert's body, which read:
Dear Mrs. Dorian,
Now we are even.
Erica D'orreli.Alana recognized the last name as the last name of the Master Templar Alana and Maria had killed back in 1865 when they were in Egypt. She remembered Enrico's dying words that his wife would make her pay. She had exacted revenge. Filling with rage, Alana asked where Erica was, to which Maria informed Alana that she is a high-ranking Templar in Prussia. Alana informed Maria that she intended to travel to Berlin and investigate the location of Erica D'orreli. Maria said that she would join her in her quest, for she has an ally that would help her in their quest. Alana agreed, and the pair made their way back to Crawley.
Life in the Kingdom of Prussia & German Empire Edit
After returning to Crawley with Maria, Alana informed her mother that she was traveling to Germany with her children to clear her mind, but also said that she would not retire as an Assassin. In 1869, Alana traveled to Berlin, the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia, and settled down in the city to raise her children. Living in the capital, she would go fishing on the River Spree with her children, and take in the sights of their new home. Their life in Berlin would change in 1871, with the formation of the German Empire under Wilhelm I, and known Templar Otto von Bismarck as its Chancellor. Seeing that Bismarck has made himself acquainted in German politics, Alana knew that he had to be eliminated. For a vast majority of the year, Alana would travel to German cities such as Hamburg, Munich, and Hanover to recruit several fighting men and women into the newly formed Assassin Brotherhood of the German Empire, with her fellow Assassins naming her its first Mentor. From 1871 to 1873, Alana and her fellow Assassins devised a plan to eliminate Bismarck, but never got to execute it, due to Juliette summoning Alana and her family back to London before they could take action in the early months of 1874. Before returning to London, Alana named Henri Landers the second Mentor of the Brotherhood of the German Empire.
In the March of 1871, Alana left her children under Maria's care in Berlin and returned to Paris to assist her cousin Gabrielle in assassinating key targets that opposed the Paris Commune. Once the Commune was in control, Alana returned to Berlin. Gabrielle would seek refuge with Alana in Berlin due to her being wanted by the French Regulars to execute her for assisting the Paris Commune. Gabrielle assisted in the plot to kill Bismarck for four months before returning to Paris.
Assassination of Erica D'orreli Edit
After spending three years searching for Erica D'orreli, they finally received a lead thanks a friend of their ally and Maria's lover Erwin Baudin in February of 1874. The trio found out that Erica had stationed herself inside the Dankwarderode Castle in Brunswick. Erwin and the two Assassins traveled to Brunswick and planned their assassination, which involved a fake kidnapping to infiltrate the tightly guarded building. Erwin grabbed both women by their arms and escorted them through the courtyard. The Templars spat on and heckled the two women as Erwin escorted them to the doors of the castle. Erwin announced to the Templars that he had captured the two Assassins. The doors swung open, and before Erwin could say anything, Maria was harshly grabbed by a Templar soldier and escorted to the prison underneath the castle while Alana was escorted by Erwin up to where Erica was on the third floor. The Termplars guarding her threatened to kill Alana, but she held them off, wanting to talk to Alana. Erica called out Alana for being foolish to chase her before applauding Alana for actually finding her. Alana informed Erica that her husband was a target of the Assassins for a long time and that he was threatening to erase the history of the Hidden Ones. Erica grabbed a knife and with ease held it between Alana's legs and up to her crotch. She got up in Alana's face and stated that her husband was right, calling the Assassins a group of cowardly killers with no purpose. Just as she was about to slice upwards and let Alana bleed out, she was distracted by a Templar calling out that there was an escaped prisoner. She sent the Templars down to investigate. The left the room on her command. Erica turned around to see Alana free of Erwin's restraints. Alana flicked out her blade, and swiftly thrust it into Erica's jugular, ending her life in a spray of blood. Erwin and Alana fled the castle and regrouped with Maria, before returning to Berlin by way of carriage under the cover of darkness.
Leader of the British Assassin Council Edit
Alana returned to London with her children in October of 1874, much to the delight of her mother. Alana informed her mother of her life in Prussia and the German Empire, where she served as the first Mentor of the Brotherhood of the German Empire, and their plan to combat the rising Templar threat under Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. Juliette strongly approved of Alana's actions, but was sorry that she had to be called back so soon. Alana was informed of Henry and Evie marrying and traveling to India, which led to Juliette calling Alana back to London to train new initiates in the ways of the Creed due to a shortage of Master Assassins.
In July of 1876, Juliette announced that she was stepping down as the leader of the British Assassin Council, a post she had held since 1860, and informed everyone that Alana would be her successor. Under Alana, it was like Juliette had never stepped down. She made key alliances with important figures such as Benjamin Disraeli, Karl Marx, and Charles Darwin.
In November of 1876, Alana received a letter from her friend Maria Williams, stating that she had some important business to discuss with her in her acreage outside of Bremen in the German Empire. After dropping Vienna and Cavan off at Juliette's flat, Alana made her way over to to the docks and boarded the German ship named the Infamy to travel to Germany. Arriving at the docks of Bremen, Alana was escorted to Maria's cottage by Isaiah Sumner, Maria's informant. After dropping Alana off, he returned to the city. Alana knocked on the door and was greeted by Maria's husband Erwin and her four year old son Xavier. Xavier gave Alana a huge hug and in her arms led her to the living area. Maria greeted Alana and made her some tea. Xavier gave Alana a new charm for her collar and a drawing saying that Alana was Britain's true hero. Maria handed Alana her tea and the pair discussed why Maria had summoned Alana to her acreage. A possible threat of Templars attacking the acreage due to her possession of a document on an Apple of Eden written by Edward Kenway, and also for Alana needing a desperate change of scenery. Alana agreed to defend the household if they came, and everyone fell asleep.
Alana's sleep was interrupted by a loud shatter. Alana strapped on her Assassin Gauntlet to see that the body of Maria's informant was lying in their living room. Maria was shocked to see that her informant was dead. Xavier was ushered upstairs to their bedroom by Erwin while Alana stepped outside, and was confronted by twenty mercenaries paid off by the Templars. Their leader called out to Maria by mocking her, saying that Maria solved her problems by bringing Alana to solve them for her. Maria entered and as soon as she did, the mercenary leader demanded that Maria hand over the document. Alana and Maria defiantly gave them all the middle finger. From there the combat began as the mercenaries came in waves, forcing Alana and Maria to retreat to the house. The mercenaries took cover in the hills, forcing pistols into the hands of Erwin, Alana, and Maria. After they fell, another wave was sent upon them. Two men were slain by Alana and Maria's pistols and shotgun blast from Erwin killed another. Alana's Hidden Blade killed another two men. Alana, Erwin and Maria were taken aback and forced into hand and hand combat. Erwin took out two of the men with blasts from his shotgun before picking up his axe. Alana dodged her adversary's attack before being stabbed in the lower abdomen. Alana retaliated by thrusting her Hidden Blade into his throat. Erwin and Maria finished them off with their axe and Hidden Blades respectively. Noticing a final wave was coming, the trio were forced to resort to throwing items from the house at the men. Alana took out two mercenaries with her Hidden Blade as Erwin ended the life of one with a broken chair leg. Maria got the fourth kill before being cornered by a brutish man while Erwin tended to a wound. Alana could hear pained screams from Maria as Xavier came from upstairs and began to punch at the man's leg. Alana whisked him away as Erwin tackled the man. not before his accomplice picked the letter off of Maria's body and fleeing while Erwin bashed in the brute's head with one of Alana's hardcover texts. Erwin immediately tended to his wife's wounds while Alana spent time with Xavier, watching him doodle. After Erwin tended to his wife's wounds, Alana pitched the idea of returning to London with her to avoid all memory of what had happened. As Maria slowly regained consciousness, Maria revealed to Alana and Erwin that the document on her was a forgery and contained entirely different information. Alana brought up studying the document in London, to where Erwin and Maria had a private discussion. Alana took Xavier outside, and spent the time showing him weapon tricks and telling him stories. Before long, Maria and Erwin came out of what remained of the house and announced their intent to return to London with Alana, leaving their acreage in Bremen behind. The four of them gathered into a carriage left behind by the mercenaries and made their way to Bremen and onward back to London for Eriwn, Maria, and Xavier to begin their lives anew.
Alana also made sure that Jacob kept tabs on the Rooks and their strongholds throughout London, while making sure what was left of the Blighters was being dealt with. Alana would also maintain correspondences with the American, Canadian, Russian, French, Ottoman, and German Empire Brotherhoods. Alana's Assassins would enjoy twelve years of peace and prosperity in London before the next major threat to the Brotherhood would arrive.
Hunting down Jack The Ripper Edit
Sitting at her desk in her flat near Charing Cross Station in the Strand, Alana received a letter from fellow council member Jacob, that a new threat had usurped control of the Rooks from him and that he was fighting a malicious fiend named Jack the Ripper to get them back. Two days after the double murder of Catherine Eddowes and Elizabeth Stride happened, Alana made a trip to Jacob’s lodgings in the London borough of Whitechapel with her daughter Vienna to pay him a visit, but noticed the door was locked. Alana and Vienna returned to the Assassin Headquarters, feeling like they were being watched by a sinister presence as they made their way through Whitechapel while thinking that Jacob could have used some of his female recruits as bait to lure out the Ripper.
Alana wrote a letter to Evie, urging her to come back to London to help her locate Jacob and defeat Jack the Ripper. While Alana waited for Evie, Alana returned to London herself and appointed Frederick Abberline, an ally of the Assassins who had earned the rank of Inspector of the Metropolitan Police Service, on the case to hunt down the Ripper. She returned to her flat and waited for Evie's arrival in London.
Evie returned to London from India a month later, much to the delight of Abberline and Alana. Accompanying Alana was her daughter Vienna. From there, Abberline informed Evie of the Ripper and that her and Alana may be the only two Assassins left in London, much to her shock. Alana and Abberline escorted her to the site of the first victim, Polly Nichols. After investigating the area thoroughly, Evie located the trajectory of a ring thrown not too far away from the tree. Alana dug it up to discover that it was an Assassin’s ring. The two Assassins held onto the ring and went on their way, where Alana informed Evie that Jacob could have put the women up to it. Evie scoffed at the idea at first, but she wouldn't be surprised if he did. Evie promised that she would bring it up to Abberline the next time she saw him.
Alana and Evie returned to Abberline, who handed them the key to Jacob’s lodgings. After a brief discussion the two of them visited the lodgings, and were horrified with what they saw inside. Jacob’s normally clean lodgings was bloody and messy. Alana and Evie split up to look for clues. Alana located a bloody letter written by the Ripper himself, which was the letter that was published by the newspapers, while Evie discovered several bloodstains and weapons of fear that Jacob had brought back from India. Alana stumbled across a photo of Evie, Henry and Jacob, with an apprentice of Jacob’s in front of the Temple of Kali. Alana informed Evie that they used to call the apprentice ‘Jack the Lad’, and he acted a lot like her brother. Evie realized that she had given Jacob a statue of Kali the Destroyer. Approaching the statue, she found a letter from him, directing the pair to an unfortunate woman named Nellie. Alana and Evie exited the building, while scaring away Rooks in the process. Alana and Evie asked several prostitutes where Nellie was, until one informed Evie that Nellie was on her way to see Lady O. Alana looked over to see Nellie getting shoved into a carriage against her will. Alana and Evie immediately gave chase, and followed the trail to the Kenway Mansion. Evie informed Alana that she will sneak in and rescue Nellie. Alana agreed and climbed to the roof to watch from above. After waiting for about a half an hour, Alana saw Evie charging out, heading for a carriage. Alana rushed down to join her comrade. The pair chased after the carriage, with Alana leaping onto the roof to kill the driver and bring the carriage to a stop. The Assassins readied their blades, anticipating that Lady O was inside, but instead they found Nellie, who informed her that Lady O had used her as a decoy, and fled to her mansion. Alana informed Evie to bring Lady O to an end, while she tended to business in the city.
Alana waited for Evie inside the Police Headquarters alongside Abberline, where she came in rather angry. Evie told Alana that she was successful in assassinating Owers, but Jack framed her for a massacre that was publicized in the papers by Weaversbrook Publishings. Alana broke up a fight between Abberline and Evie, where Abberline couldn’t cover them forever, and that he would arrest the both of them in the Ripper’s stead. Alana and Abberline tasked Evie with locating Weaversbrook when Vienna rushed in and informed that she heard word on the streets that Rooks were heading for Juliette’s flat near St. Paul’s cathedral. Alana accompanied her daughter to Juliette’s flat. Upon entry, Alana saw four Rooks corner her mother. Alana and Vienna assassinated the four Rooks, and asked her mother why the Rooks beset her. Juliette informed them that they were there because Jack wanted her dead due to her ties with Jacob. Juliette also informed the Assassins that Arthur Weaversbrook was publishing the letters, and asked the pair to find him and get some answers out of him. Traveling from her mother’s residence, they came across Rooks cornering the man. Using fear tactics to scare the Rooks, they met up with Evie talked to Weaversbrook, who informed them that he was publishing the letters due to the Ripper threatening his family by kidnapping his son. Alana informed him to stop publishing the letters, while Evie went to go rescue his son. Alana and Vienna returned to Juliette's flat. Upon returning from saving Weaversbrook‘s son, Evie returned to Juliette's flat informed Alana that she was traveling to Deptford to the prison hulk ships, with the hope of saving Jacob.
Shortly after Evie returned, Inspector Abberline informed Alana that the Ripper has struck again, this time taking the life of Mary Jane Kelly. Evie met Alana and Abberline at the site, and were greeted by the Ripper’s most brutal work. Evie was so appalled that she flew into a rage, having to be restrained by both Abberline and Alana. Abberline informed Evie once again that he couldn’t cover Evie and Alana forever, and told her again he would arrest both women instead of the Ripper if they didn't deliver his head on a platter. Through her Eagle Vision, Alana discovered that this was a message from the Ripper to Evie and Alana. The message led Alana and Evie to a cemetery in Whitechapel, where Annie Chapman was killed. Alana and Evie discovered another Assassin ring, and with it another message for the two of them. The second message led them to the murder scene of Catherine Eddowes. After clearing the area of Rooks, Alana and Evie scoured the area to discover two more Assassin rings, the other belonging to Elizabeth Stride, and another message from Jack, leading Evie to where Jack’s mother was murdered. Alana accompanied Evie to the site, where she watched as Evie was hallucinating due to a fear bomb. After the fear bomb wore off, Evie informed Alana that she saw the Ripper in the hallucination, that he was Jack the Lad, and demanded the two Assassins challenge him at Lambeth Asylum.
Alana received word from bystanders that they saw someone who looked like Jack the Ripper skulking around Lambeth Asylum. Alana made her way over to the Asylum. As she was infiltrating the asylum, Alana overheard policemen saying that the Ripper was looking forward to killing his former nurse, doctor, and the asylum director. Alana activated her Eagle Vision, and spied Doctor Archer out in the courtyard. Evadin the eyes of the police, Alana made her way over to the doctor, informing him that the Ripper was after him and told him to leave the premises. Not knowing what was going on. Archer left the asylum on Alana's orders. Returning her focus to the asylum, Alana climbed up the asylum's walls and entered the open window where she located the nurse through her Eagle Vision. Alana rushed over to the nurse, and discovered that it was her childhood friend Tessa Whitney. After a brief reunion, Alana escorted Tessa out the back of the building to a carriage on standby, and informed the driver to get her to her home safely. Alana returned to the asylum's interior to rescue Director Bradford, only to find that the Ripper had gotten to him first. Alana searched for the documents covering Jack's stay at the asylum, but failed to find them. Just as Alana was about to escape, she was beset upon by rabid criminals. Alana did all she could to fend them off, but when she was overwhelmed, she leaped out the broken window next to her and landed in the haystack, and exited the asylum to meet up with Evie.
Alana joined up with Evie, and the pair carefully averted the eyes of the police as they carried out their infiltration. Upon entering the asylum, Evie and Alana were confronted by several patients, whom Alana and Evie had to knock out as they made their way through the asylum. Entering a room of slaughtered people, Alana and Evie found out that their prize was in the basement of the asylum. The pair rushed down to the dark and decrepit basement, where the two women were jumped by the Ripper. Evie was immediately thrown aside as the Ripper turned his focus to Alana, propping her up by her collar and pulling out his knife, holding it to her forehead. Jack asked Alana where her and Juliette were to rescue his mother from the Templars, an act that Jacob failed to do. Alana tried to explain to him before the Ripper ran his jagged blade across her forehead, causing a laceration on Alana to bleed. Wishing Alana a happy birthday, the Ripper threw Alana aside before he was blindsided by Evie, using her fear tactics on the Ripper before retreating into the shadows. The pain from Alana's forehead was so immense, but she continued to fight, distracting the Ripper while Evie landed the second strike. Evie handed Alana some Fear tools in order to combat the Ripper from the shadows. Alana landed the second strike on Jack, who used a Fear bomb of his own to vanish, letting more patients into the basement. Alana fended off the patients, killing some of them even though she didn't want to. Just as she finished them off, Evie landed the final strikes on Jack the Ripper. Alana helped Evie drag Jack's body into the room, looking back to see Jacob slouched in the corner. Alana set the body down while Evie tended to Jacob, just as Abberline entered the room, asking what happened in here. Evie said nothing happened, but Alana added that Jack the Ripper was dead, and that nobody must know that Jack the Ripper was an Assassin. Abberline hesitated for a few moments, before hearing a fellow officer shout that journalists were arriving. Looking back at Alana and Evie, Abberline ordered the officer to get the journalists out. After the journalists left, Alana, Evie and Abberline escorted Jacob under the cover of darkness back to Juliette's flat, where she took care of both Jacob and Alana's wounds.
Shortly after the fall of Jack the Ripper, Alana made personal visits to Doctor Archer and and Tessa Whitney about the fact that Jack the Ripper's identity should never be revealed. Both Archer and Whitney promised to Alana that they will not disclose the identity of the Ripper for as long as they were alive.
Fight Club Career Edit
With Alana's knowledge of grappling, submission holds and fighting, Alana was directed to the fight club in Crawley, which was located a few blocks down from the Eagle Head Pub. Alana was known for her high flying attacks and submissions, as well as fights that involved weapons such as garbage bins, wooden chairs, tables, and brass knuckles. In an intergender match in June 1863, Alana defeated Crawley Fight Club Champion Isaac Walsh in a rough, bloody and evenly contested match to win the Crawley Fight Club where Alana got cut open hard way on top of her forehead from a hard right hand, matting her hair and covering her face with blood. After the match, Alana returned home to receive stitches from her mother, who wasn't fond of Alana fighting, but let her continue fighting in order to hone her skills. Alana would drop the Crawley Fight Club Championship back to Walsh in May of 1865.
Alana would not fight again until she went to London in 1868 to assist the Frye twins liberate London from Crawford Starrick. Alana would fight regularly on the side in the seven fight clubs throughout the city run by Robert Topping. Her most famous fight in London came in the Westminster Fight Club, where she challenged the co-champions of the Westminster Fight Club, Bonita Price and Jennifer Haskins after the pair beat up Evie Frye. Alana took on Haskins first. The fight was evenly fought at first, until Alana tried to take out Haskins with a dive to the outside, where she was sideswiped by Haskins, causing her to hurt her ribs. Fighting on the outside, Haskins threw a wooden chair at Alana's head, which wrapped around her neck and cut her open on her forehead. The fight carried back into the ring when Haskins threw her in the ring while she lit a table on fire on the outside of the ring. After Haskins taunted the fans, Alana tackled her through the burning table, giving Alana the win. Shortly after the match, Alana got jumped by Bonita Price, starting the second round. Bonita quickly got an armbar on Alana which she quickly powered out of. Alana backed into a corner to catch her breath. Before she could, Alana found herself in a sleeper hold. Slowly fading, Alana's arm was hoisted up for the third time. If it went limp, Alana would lose. She found the strength to hold her arm up, and slam Bonita down to the mat. Bonita rolled out of the ring to catch her breath. Alana found the strength to hit Bonita with the move she failed to hit Haskins with before. After succeeding, Alana climbed up to the second level, and took a sip out of a spectator's wine glass before performing a backflip onto Bonita from the balcony before placing her in a crossface chicken wing, knocking her out and winning the Westminster Fight Club Championship. After the fight, Alana celebrated in the ring with Evie and Robert Topping. Alana would vacate the Championship in 1869 before returning to Crawley to leave for Prussia.
Later Years Edit
Alana would continue to train new initiates in the ways of the Creed until she would retire from active duty within the Assassin Order in July 1901, passing on leadership to her daughter Vienna. Alana would retire to the same flat her mother called home for the years up until her death in 1900. Alana and Gabrielle gave Juliette a proper burial next to her parents in Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Alana lived her life in peace in the flat and keep watch over the choices of her daughter, who was leading the British Assassins to prosperity, much like her mother and grandmother before her. Alana was moved to the countryside upon the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, spending her time with the Frye Twins. Once the Great War ended, Alana returned to her mother's flat. Alana and her granddaughter Lillian Petersson were present in Constantinople to witness the exile of Sultan Mehmed VI in 1922, marking the end of the Ottoman Empire. Returning to London, she spent her time in her mother's old flat to be closer to Vienna. Cavan would return to London from Canada after the war in 1919 to be closer to his mother. Alana Rose Dorian would pass away quietly in her sleep on December 19th, 1931 at the age of 91. She was buried beside her mother in Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France.
Personal Life Edit
Growing up, Alana was the opposite of her mother. She was wild and full of energy, and often curious about her surroundings. Juliette wrote in her journal of young Alana, saying that she was a 'curious individual with an inquisitive mind.' Her father Samuel said of his daughter, that Alana was 'Born with Juliette's looks, my tenacity, and the wits of both of us.'
Alana cared for everyone she worked with, even if she didn't like them. This is shown during the Liberation of Devil's Acre, where Alana worked with Jacob. Despite Jacob disobeying her orders, Alana tried to show Jacob the error of his ways, although Jacob shrugged her off when she tried. Despite scolding Jacob several times, Alana still cared for hom
Alana was incredibly close with her cousin Gabrielle, who lived in Paris. The two of them first met in 1850, when Juliette and Alana traveled to Paris to meet up with Francois and Gabrielle. The two of them would meet up again in Canada in 1867. From there, the pair would update each other of the happenings within their respective Brotherhoods, until Gabrielle's death in 1929.
Alana was good friends with fellow Assassin Maria Williams, serving as a big sister and a Mentor to the younger Assassin. The two women referred to each other as the 'sisters they never had'. Alana was a part of Maria's first mission as a Master Assassin, where the duo assassinated two high ranking Templars in Croydon in January 1865. Despite knowing Maria and her brothers Marshall and Caelan since they were kids, Alana and Maria really got to know each other as they were training as Assassins, as both of them were trained by Juliette, Alana's mother. Alana, Maria, Marshall, and Caelan worked well as a cohesive unit together, and referred to themselves as the 'Ravens of Crawley.' Upon Alana's return to London in 1874, the four of them reunited as the 'Ravens of London', and the three Williams siblings served as Council Members once Alana took over the British Assassins in 1876.
Alana married Albert Andreas Richardson, who was the son of a wealthy shipping owner, on September 9th, 1865 in a small intimate ceremony in Crawley. Alana first met Albert when she was nineteen, and according to Juliette, the young couple was 'inseparable'. The couple would have two children in the form of fraternal twins. Their daughter Vienna Victoria Dorian and son Cavan Samuel Richardson on July 1st, 1866, eight minutes apart. British Brotherhood naming traditions meant that the first born child would take the last name of the mother, where as the second born child would bear the father's last name. Alana would rest for two weeks after giving birth. Albert would pass away while Alana was in London on August 18th, 1868 from a sudden but lethal case of typhoid fever. Alana would not remarry after his passing, and focused on training her children in the ways of the Assassins while living in Berlin.
Alana was also known for her skills as a seamstress, crafting several outfits for Assassins in the French and British Brotherhoods. Alana's Master Assassin outfit was hand crafted by herself, and took her over a year and a half to complete.
Alana's work as an Assassin theorist is well known among the Assassins. She wrote several papers on several famed Assassins of the past, such as Altair, Ezio, Bayek and Amunet, Connor, the Brotherhood of the American Colonies, Pierre Bellec and the French Assassin Council of the 1790's, the British Brotherhood, Aveline de Grandpre, Shao Jun, and Edward Kenway while living In Berlin. These writings were in German and were about how strict each Assassin/Brotherhood adhered to the Creed, and what she would have done to fix their wrongdoings, and how they could have been avoided. The writings were bound together within twelve chapters and written over four years, titled The Alanist Perspective, which Alana wrote about the Hidden Ones up until the reformation of the Brotherhood. It was published in November of 1874, just after Alana left to return to London. Alana published a second critique, covering from the reformation of the Brotherhood up through the Middle Ages, in 1880. In 1885, Alana published the final chapter, critiquing the Brotherhoods active during the Gloden Age of Piracy up until modern times. The critique of how former Assassins adhered to the Creed was called Alanism, in Alana's honor. Alana was also known for her critiques of certain Assassins. She wrote a paper on British Assassins Robert Fitzwalter and William of Cassingham in 1865, and two more on Ezio Auditore and Edward Kenway in 1866 and 1867 respectively. She wrote a critique on Bayek and Amunet in 1870 on the way to Berlin.
Alana published a book of poetry while she was in London. The poetry was about the Templar targets the trio had assassinated in London. It was titled Murder Ballads: Poetry Centered Around the Templars of London. Poems she wrote that were in the poetry book were titled 'Give Me the Cure', 'The Late Pearl Attaway' , 'The Tale of Twopenny', 'Feasting on a Lord', 'Jokes Jokes Jokes', and 'Underground'.
Weaponry and Talents Edit
Alana possessed a multitude of weapons and tools that helped her succeed as an Assassin. Assassin records state that she used a kukri that was gilded with gold, which was a gift from her mother upon receiving the rank of Master Assassin. Her Hidden Blade was made of gold, symbolizing her rank of Master Assassin. For when it was needed, Alana would employ the use of smoke bombs, usually to cover her escape. When in stealth scenarios, Alana would often use throwing knives to her advantage. Later in her career, Alana acquired a cane sword after the fall of Lilla Graves, and carried it with her for the rest of her career. On her, Alana carries a pistol which is a family heirloom, passed down from her grandmother Elise, who used it in the French Revolution.
After visiting Evie and Henry Green in India in 1874, Alana perfected the use of Fear tactics, non-lethal ways of intimidating enemies by means of hallucinogenic powder by means of Fear bombs and spikes. Alana would teach these tactics to her children and other initiates and would use them herself during the Autumn of Terror in 1888.
Alana honed her climbing and freerunning skills under her parents, who were impressed with her quick skills on the training course in the backwoods of the Goff Mansion. As she trained in combat, Alana learned the art of grappling and submission based combat from her mother Juliette, and sparred with her parents to hone her skills. By her twenty-fifth birthday, Alana had perfected a rear naked choke. It was so devastating, Alana's cousin Gabrielle said that 'Once you are in the hold, you are finished.'
Alana was inspired by several Assassins to become one herself. Alana has stated that her primary influences on her as an Assassin were her grandparents Arno Dorian and Elise de la Serre, her uncle Francois Charles Dorian, her parents Juliette and Samuel, Edward Kenway, Ezio Auditore, Amunet, and Ethan and Cecily Frye.
Assassins who were inspired by Alana Edit
Assassins who have cited Alana as a primary influence on them becoming Assassins are that of Jacob and Evie Frye, her children Vienna and Cavan, Lydia Frye, Caelan Williams, Emmett Frye, Isabelle Allard, and her granddaughters Anastasia and Megan Andreu.
