- "Let us speak of war. Of triumph. Of how I cannot be vanquished."
- ―Dominique Jean.[src]
Dominique Jean was the niece of a voodoo houngan, under whose doting tutelage she grew up in Saint-Domingue. Known as a clear and creative thinker, she would frequently collaborate with others, though those that crossed her would find out how deadly she really was. She met Kumi Berko at the age of 16 and shared a brief relationship with him, which was cut short when he eventually left the island.
In 2013, 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 game console, under the title of the Firebrand.
- Dominique is a French variant of the Latin name Dominicus, meaning "of the Lord, belonging to God". Jean is a French variant of the name John, ultimately from Hebrew יוֹחָנָן (Yochanan), meaning "Yahweh is gracious".
- Variants of the name Dominicus were traditionally given to a child born on a Sunday, especially by Catholics.
