Arnold Pierce (born 1966) is a Master Assassin and a member of the Assassin Brotherhood. In his youth, Arnold was a field agent for the Brotherhood but now he acts as a contact, trainer and tactical support member. He is the father of Horatio Pierce.
Early life Edit
Arnold was a descendant of the notorious Assassins, compromising of Kurosawa no Rōnin, Kenneth Ravensdale, his son Osyka and the 19th century Assassin Ugochukwu. Arnold was born into the Brotherhood and decided to devote his life to the Creed.
In 1997, Arnold became the mentor of Hayley Yasutake and trained her in everything she knew. In that same year, Arnold had a son, Horatio, with a Canadian woman named Jennifer. Arnold was unsure if he should indoctrinate Horatio into the Brotherhood until the year 2000, the year of the Great Purge. Arnold was a target for Daniel Cross and Abstergo and thus had to leave his family.
Source of Eden Edit
At an unknown point and for unknown reasons, Arnold relived the genetic memories of his ancestors and discovered the existence of the Sources of Eden. After this, Arnold left to find these Sources but also left clues behind for his Assassin brethren.
Arnold anticipated that Abstergo would discover the clues first and so, he made one of the clues lead to a dead end regarding finding a Source of Eden which gave the Assassins enough time to discover the other Sources.
In late 2017, Arnold discovered a precursor Temple in Mexico through the genetic memories of his ancestor, Osyka. Although due to his low count of Isu genes he could not open the Temple and therefore waited for the Assassins to find him.
Personality and characteristics Edit
Arnold was a serious man but at rare times he could also develop a witty sense of humor. Arnold is completely devoted to the Assassin Brotherhood and their Creed. Due to being a man of serious nature, he also liked to remain focused on important tasks.
Despite being devoted to the Creed, it is implied Arnold deeply cared for his son as he debated on whether to indoctrinate his son into the Brotherhood when he was still an infant. When he was made a target by Abstergo in 2000, he left his family in order to keep them safe further showing his connection to the people he loves.
