I couldn't help noticing that the "evil bald guy with a cape" from the Assassin's Creed: Revelations trailer kind of looked like Robert De Sable from Assassin's Creed I. Could he be a far descendant from monsieur De Sable?

lol tobuscus but anyway i think he might be one of the main targets in the game or just a head templar for the trailer

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which

Yes, he will probably Ezio's new nemesis but because he resembles a bit to him and Revelations takes place in the same area as ACI I thought he could be Robert's grand-grand-grand son or something willing to avenge his ancestor by taking Masyaf and killing the grand-grand-grand son of his ancestors father: Ezio.

He doesn't look like him at all. That guy is very obviously turkish by his facial structure, and Robert was french. There is no way that his lineage moved so much ground without retaining any facial characteristics at all. I understand how he could look similar, but if you dress any bald guy up in the same clothes, he will look similar.

Ezio and Altaïr are not related, according to the writer of AC:R.

Unlikely, he looks of Mongoloid ascendance, most likely he is turkish, and it will be a long way for Robert's genes to get there.

I highly doubt that he is Robert's descendant. I did think of him when I first saw it, so Ubi might have done it on purpose, since the story has so many AC1 references.

Maybe he had one chromosome too many (and it determined what he could see.)

You won't even feel the blade.

Well, obviously he's either high ranking or the main villain EA16, why else would they show him?

Maybe he's not even in the game, remember ACII's Venice trailer? Or AC1's trailer?

The level might not even play out like that entirely. It might just be Ezio raiding an occupied Masyaf, stealthily killing archers instead of fighting off dozens of soldiers only to be hanged.

From what journalists have described seeing behind closed doors (the part where he's about to be hanged, and what happens after, but in-game), and from what ubisoft said about wanting to make sure the cinematic trailer actually happened in the game, I think it was legit.

He'll probably the new Templar Grand Master.

i gotta say, when we first see him standing on the mountain looking down on Ezio, i did not think he's a descendant of Robert.
my very first thought was that it was Robert himself, somehow healed the fatal stab by Altair and then found the source to eternal life.

but that dream was crushed when i saw the face

I'd like it very much if we didn't kill the Grand Master of the Templars. It seems like the history of the Assassin/Templar war is one of complete Templar dominance, except for when one Assassin singlehandedly dismantles their order.

Now that you mention it, since this is a throwback to AC1 in many ways, they could have been trying to give us AC1 diehards some easter eggs. A lot of people were either consciously or unconsciously aware that there was a Robert hint in his appearance.

Well, they ARE Assassins. What else are Assassins supposed to be good at, if not killing the head of whatever opposes them? I think it makes a lot of sense. However, it would be interesting if it were merely a high-ranking templar, although that would mean we won't see the actual grand master of that time, ever, since this is the last game set in this time period.

I doubt Ezio met with EVERY Templar Grand Master of his time. Rodrigo and Cesare (was Cesare technically Grand Master?) were good enough for what he was doing. Who would consider taking that title if your life expectancy is extremely low? Even they need a break.

I don't know. Cesare never seemed to have any contact with other templars, and he did get arrested at the end, and I doubt the templars would just sit around and watch their grandmaster get arrested for "murder, betrayal, and INCEST." I didn't think any of the people we killed in brotherhood were actual templars except Rodrigo. They all seemed like the courtesans or the thieves guild, allies of the templars without much knowledge of who or what they were working for.

A lot of the people we assassinated in AC2-bhood were either newly joined with the templars, or just being used by them, but everyone who was more directly connected with the Borgias were definately Templars. Cesare would have been the Grand Master of the Templars by default, since the Borgia family was the Templar's most powerful group up until its desintegration. After they fell and Cesare was arrested, it seems that the Templars seeded amongst the Byzantines were given the go-ahead to take them over, or become more of an active element.

But at his time of death, Cesare was probably not even considered part of the Templar order. Affiliating themselves with someone despised and with no real power would do nothing for them.

And Icefire, the reason all the Templars sat back and let Cesare get arrested was because he had nothing worth saving him for any more. Ezio and his assassins had systematically destroyed his every resource, and cut his influence on the church. Another reason is that Ezio's order and the new guilds he set up across europe kept Templars in other places busy, meaning that the italian Templars were all Cesare had to rely on for backup. And Ezio had destroyed too much of the italian templar order for them to be strong enough to beat Ezio's brotherhood at its heart, Roma, let alone the army of Papal guards that came to arrest Cesare.
