Alsoomse was a Native American woman of Shawnee ancestry, who lived a very solitary life as a child, subsequently causing her to be considered more independent than those around her. As she grew older, Alsoomse displayed a violent and fearless temperament, even willing to die for the ideals that she believed in. Because of this, she fought the Templars in the colonies.
In 2012, her genetic memories were used as an Animi Avatar by the entertainment branch of the Templar company Abstergo Industries, to influence the general public via the Animus games console, under the title of the Independent.
- Alsoomse is a name of Algonquin origins, meaning "independent."
