Claudette was killed by her own son, Frédéric, in 1762.

Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Born in the gutter of the city of New Orleans, Claudette Cuisiné was nothing but a mere prostitute. She was raised by a prostitute-mother. Claudette had never known her father – and had not a great need of knowing him either. Claudette could be the product of a night of compassion from several different males that arrived at the brothel where her mother worked.

Skipping further many years, Abstergo can confirm that the soon-to-be Templar Eugiène Blaise was contacting her in order to kill his mother – which also served as a prostitute. Claudette got paid with a given amount of silver-coins. Claudette located Blaise's mother and killed her. From Blaise's diary, it is possible to read that Claudette killed the woman by being 'sent out in the bayou – where she was served to the alligators.' After this, Claudette disappear from the records for quite some time.

Claudette is first mentioned again when a priest in the city of New Orleans was to marry a Claudette Cuisiné to sir Lawrence Concord (which the last was a pseudonym of Eugiène Blaise). Their marriage took place in 1720 – when Claudette would be 23 years old.

Templar-affaires Edit

Being recruited into the Templar Order same year when her wedding took place, Claudette played the role as a privateer in Caribbean, and a spy back on the mainland. She had got the law on her side when the Templar puppet – the governor of New France – gave her permission to act on behalf of the Kingdom of France. This meant she could act as she pleased without it coming to consequences for her or her family. The only rule was to never attack ship that sailed under French colors.

At some point, Claudette swore her allegiance to Grand Master Torres and his right hand woman: Juana Puíg – both members of the West Indies Rite of the Templar Order. By doing this, she and Eugiène now took part in the shrinking Rite. They began to operate alongside Juana and her group of Templars, trying to locate several Pieces of Eden.

With the death of Juana in 1721, and Torres in 1722, Claudette and her husband fled the Caribbean. They returned to New Orleans. Here, they began to hunt for men and women acting against the law. They carried out transactions for the governor of New France even. With the fortune Eugiène had, they soon had a little fleet they could use. The problem was the Caribbean Assassins. They were the reason the Blaises' business had highest tops and the lowest vale.

In 1725, Claudette born Eugiène's son: Quentin Blaise. In 1727, Frédéric Blaise was born.

Trivia Edit

  1. According to Eugiène's diary, he explains that the person he met at the brothel when he hired hitmen for his job in killing his mother, as 'of the same age', which in turn can mean she too is born in 1697.
  2. Claudette shares the name with Captain Bonviert's ship, the Claudette.
  3. Claudette is the feminine form of Claudius.
    • Claudius. From a Roman family name which was possibly derived from Latin claudus meaning "lame, crippled". This was the name of a patrician family prominent in Roman politics. The ancestor of the family was said to have been a 6th-century BC Sabine leader named Attius Clausus, who adopted the name Appius Claudius upon becoming a Roman citizen. The family produced several Roman emperors of the 1st century, including the emperor known simply as Claudius. He was poisoned by his wife Agrippina in order to bring her son Nero (Claudius's stepson) to power. The name was later borne by several early saints, including a 7th-century bishop of Besançon.
