- "I'm sure that without a head, the Templar organization will die just like anything else. And to decapitate the Templars, ce salaud [that bastard] Haytham Kenway needs to die."
- ―Alexander D'Aramitz before his assassination attempt on Haytham Kenway.
Alexander D'Aramitz (1756-1843), also known as Okwahokohsera'kène, was the son of Jean D'Aramitz, a French Assassin, and an unnamed Quileute Indian woman. He was an Assassin during the American Revolution and a Mentor during the War of 1812.
Alexander was considered very handsome. Just over 6' tall, with tanned skin, dark hair tied in a queue, and golden eyes, he was charming and daring, with a reckless streak and a bit of a temper.
Jean D'Aramitz was a French Assassin fighting during the French and Indian War, but in 1755, he was sent west by his superiors to investigate rumors of a Piece of Eden. Jean canoed and walked across America and eventally, in early 1756, he discovered a Piece of Eden in the hands of the Quileute tribe. The Quileutes recognized the Assassin emblem on Jean's clothing and were forced to hand over the Fourth Apple of Eden , which they had been guarding for the Assassins. Jean stayed with the Quileute long enough to impregnate one of the women and see her give birth to his son- Alexander. When Jean set out to go back to Quebec, he took the woman and Alexander with him. Along the way, the Apple was lost in the river, and Jean was forced to continue with news of his failure. After severe punishment at Quebec, Jean secretly left, taking only his year-old son with him. Jean raised Alexander as an Assassin, training him from a young age. When he was sixteen, Alexander was presented to Achilles Davenport. When Achilles was understandably highly doubtful of the young man's supposed prowess, Jean and Alexander devised a sufficient demonstration. After Alexander single-handedly wiped out a British patrol with a Templar as the officer, Achilles reluctantly agreed to officially induct Alexander into the Order. Before the Revolutionary War, Alexander successfully killed several prominent Templars, which earned him Achilles' grudging acceptance. In the beginning of the war, his father Jean was murdered by the Templars on Haytham Kenway's orders, and revenge drove Alexander to brutally assassinate his father's murderers within days. Alexander then attempted to also assassinate Haytham Kenway, but he was ambushed and was forced to flee, leaving Kenway bleeding but very much alive. An acquaintance of Connor Kenway's, Alexander wreaked havoc both on the battlefield as a Continental soldier and in secret as an Assassin. He was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel by Washington himself. During the course of the war, Alexander was raised to Master Assassin, becoming the youngest to do so at age 24. He became a staunch friend of the Marquis de Lafayette, and they fought together at Brandywine in 1777, Gloucester later that year, and Barren Hill in 1778. Alexander was instrumental in Lafayette's recruitment of the Oneida tribe. Washington privately awarded Alexander a Badge of Military Merit in 1783 "for considerable aid and bravery offered in the service of America at great personal risk." After the war, Alexander anglicized his name to "Aramis." In 1785, he married and settled down in Philadelphia, though he was minorly active during the War of 1812. He was always prepared for the Assassin contracts he was periodically sent for the rest of his life. In his later years, he successfully trained several apprentices. He died peacefully on December 4, 1843, just before his 87th birthday.
His older daughter Elizabeth (born 1786) married a Britishman named James Chawner, and from them came the line of Chawner silversmiths. One notable member of that descent was the World War One war poet and Assassin Rupert Chawner Brooke, who was poisoned by Templars in 1915.
His oldest son, Gaspard (born 1787), took his mother's surname and went on to become a famous Assassin in his own right.
His middle son, Jonathan (born 1788), was an Assassin sleeper agent with the Templars who was eventually converted to their cause. He was an ancestor of Nikolai Orelov and, through him, Daniel Cross. Gaspard was eventually forced into assassinating his brother.
His younger daughter, Victoria (born 1787), was also an Assassin. She was originally in France, where she participated in the Bourbon Restoration. She later moved back to America and set up a base in Boston. She never married, instead focusing on her work with the Assassins and occasionally having short relationships. She fought in the War of 1812 with her brothers and eventually followed in her father's footsteps, becoming a Mentor and living out her days with her Apprentices.
His youngest son, Etienne (born 1790), also joined the Assassins and infiltrated the Templars for several years. After that, he dedicated himself to recording and tracking down the Pieces of Eden.
Alexander learned to dual-wield weapons, usually fighting with a heavy saber in one hand and a tomahawk in the other. He carried a bow and quiver of arrows, but they were infrequently used because he, in his own words, "liked to carry out my kills up close and personal." He was a resourceful warrior, often implementing his surroundings and manipulating his opponents' movements to his advantage. He also carried dual flintlock pistols and a Hidden Blade, which was increased to two when he became a Master Assassin. His usual attire was a plain white shirt with black-dyed buckskin leggings and moccasins and a red sash. Over that, he wore a long, hooded black coat with red lapels and lining. Dark leather baldrics held his armaments, and fingerless gauntlets and a wide belt had metal Assassin emblems on display. He also wore both an armband woven in the Quileute style on his left arm and a French flag patch on his right shoulder, as tributes to his parentage.
- The Mohawk called him Okwahokohsera'kène, which means "wolf in the winter."
- Alexander was a descendant of Henri D'Aramitz, the Aramis of the Three Musketeers.
