"You are an Assassin, you are fighting Templars, but all of you are in desperate need of help. You are many in you Brotherhood, but you don't have the resources to raise an army. I, on the other hand, already lead an army of freedom fighters."
―Suzanne upon meeting Marie Anne Étienne in Calais, 1789

Suzanne René was a French merchant, seamstress and fighter operating in the city of Paris during the French Revolution at the side of the Assassin Brotherhood. She was the lover of the Parisian Assassin Brasseur.

Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Born and raised in the city of Bordeaux, Suzanne was the only daughter of Monsieur and Madame René, and the younger sister of Jeannot and Claude René.

Suzanne was raised to become a housewife and a seamstress by her mother, while her brothers were both taught in the ways of trading and fighting. Both of her brothers decided to enter the French Army later in their life, both returning and settling down after ten years of service.

Suzanne's brother, Claude, felt pity on her however. When he saw her glancing at his weapons when he was training in the backyard, he tried to train her as he was taught in the army and by their father.

Establish a new life Edit

Refusing to marry men of wealth during her late teens, Suzanne was soon put away. Both of her parents felt Suzanne was a disappointment, but Claude did not allowed them to just let her go. So, both Suzanne and her brother left Bordeaux and left for Paris. In the city, Suzanne got work as a seamstress for a baroness-widow, and her brother served as the tutor for noble boys.

One day, Suzanne was contacted by the Parisian regiment. Her brother had been wounded in a duel with a soldier. He had survived, however, but could only operate from a wheelchair. Wanting the siblings to still live in Paris, Suzanne continued working as a seamstress and overtook her brother's job as a fighting-tutor. Claude had set some money away during their time in Paris, and at some point – with the money both of the siblings earned – Claude bought an establishment to work as a pawnbroker. By night, he used some of the money on card games – swindling himself more coin, which he shared with his sister.

At some point, she made the acquaintance of a man named Brasseur. He introduced her for his work as an Assassin – offering her a position in their ranks, but she refused, she would like to aid them however (and so would her brother).

Trivia Edit

  1. Suzanne comes from Σουσαννα (Sousanna), the Greek form of the Hebrew name שׁוֹשַׁנָּה (Shoshannah). This was derived from the Hebrew word שׁוֹשָׁן(shoshan) meaning "lily", perhaps ultimately from Egyptian sšn "lotus".
  2. René is the French form of the late Latin name Renatus, meaning "born again".
