Emails were electronic messages sent between various individuals. Many such messages were sent through either the Templar-controlled Abstergo Email Network, or the Hephaestus Email Network of the Assassins.

Abstergo NetworkEdit

Vidic's emailEdit

Main article: Warren Vidic's email
AC1 Vidic's Email

Vidic's AEN account

When accessed by Desmond Miles during his incarceration at Abstergo, he gained access to Warren Vidic's emails after stealing his access pen. The Templar's messages revealed more about Abstergo Industries, and the current condition of the world in 2012.

Lucy's emailEdit

Main article: Lucy Stillman's email
AC1 Lucy Abstergo Mail

Lucy's AEN account

Lucy Stillman openly left her email accessible to Desmond, all of which gave further insight on Abstergo.

Project Lead #9 emailEdit

AC1 Conference Room Email

Project Lead #9 AEN account

The conference room also held a computer, usually for sending more confidential emails regarding the Animus Project, as the room and terminal were both passcode protected. At one point, Alan Rikkin emailed Warren, telling him to check the priority updates on the secure terminal of the conference room.

From: Alan Rikkin
To: Warren Vidic
Date/Time: September 7, 8:00
Subject: Analysis
Warren:

The others and I have finished reviewing the Animus recordings from Subjects 12-16. While the Piece of Eden remains our priority, we must all continue working to locate and understand the remaining artifacts. I am sure you can understand our reasoning behind this. Although the satellite is intended to accomplish a fair portion of the work for us, we will certainly need to deal with those who are either immune to - or protected from - its effects.

Please take a moment to look over our findings and get back to me with any feedback you may have. I will summarize below:

  1. Piece of Eden (no. 3) - We applaud your continued efforts to locate an alternate artifact following the loss of no. 2 in the DIA Satellite Accident. We understand Subject Seventeen is having trouble interfacing with the Animus, leading to delays. As a result, we estimate another 24 hours before your next critical update. In the meantime, we'll prepare an extraction team and set them to standby. We're relying on you to obtain the additional information we require. He knows where the other objects are - even if he doesn't realize it. You MUST unlock that final memory or all of this will have been for nothing.
  2. Philadelphia Project - Data provided from Animus Subject Twelve indicates that the ship briefly manifested in a future state for approximately 18 minutes. It is unclear whether the timeline is consistent with or parallel to our own. Although we have recovered enough data to reconstruct and repair the original artifact used in the experiment, Administration has refused to move forward on the project, citing paradox concerns. Corporate policy remains in place: any objects found to interfere with or manipulate time must be contained. Artifact will be moved to secure storage.
  3. Tunguska Incident - Now believed to be the direct result of assault by Assassins. Research station destroyed as was artifact. Alternate wave generation devices have been located in storage, but we have insufficient data at the moment to initiate research. The risk of accident is too high. Lineage Discovery and Acquisition Division should attempt to locate descendants of any attack survivors (either Assassins or Brotherhood) in order to continue research. Resurrecting this particular type of technology will aid us greatly with any holdouts following the Satellite's activation. We're putting together a team to push research in this area.
  4. Grail - We are removing the Grail from our list of objectives. There is insufficient evidence to confirm its existence. Current examination of Subject Seventeen indicates that aside from the Piece of Eden, all other artifacts related to Christ-figure are literary devices (or derived from Piece of Eden) and not actual objects. Even if the object is real, its use to us at this stage is negligible. Our resources are better used elsewhere.
  5. Mitchell-Hedges Communicators - Analysis of the objects is complete. The good news is that they work. As a result, we now have a safe and secure communication channel for use after the launch. However, they are severely limited in number, and so we will be providing them only to our most essential facilities. You will obviously retain possession of the one you have.

Warren, I cannot stress how important it is that you wrap things up with Subject Seventeen as soon as possible. We're obviously relieved that you seem to be closing in on the target memory, but you need to step it up. Everything we're working towards depends on your retrieving those locations. Without them, we've got nothing.

May The Father of Understanding guide you to success.

A.R.


Hephaestus NetworkEdit

ACB Hephaestus Email Network

Hephaestus Email Network main screen

Through his own computer terminal in the Sanctuary, Desmond became able to receive and read his own emails. Additionally, after receiving a list of passwords from the mysterious Erudito, he was also able to access the emails of his three teammates.

The emails mostly involved the team's communications with each other, as well as Shaun's and Lucy's conversations with another Assassin, William Miles. However, Lucy's contact was actually Vidic posing as " William M."

In the Grand Temple, Desmond received messages from Shaun, Rebecca and his father while in the Animus, and was forwarded conversations between his teammates. He also received messages from Juno, who had cracked her way into the server.

The Data Dump Scanner of Abstergo also supported an email network. Users often received survey questions, as well as outside emails from Erudito.

SurveysEdit

History surveyEdit

From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "HISTORY"
In the quiz, we stated: "History is accurate."

You responded: "Historians pride themselves on unbiased accuracy."

Certainly many historians strive for accuracy, but how can we put faith in documents written before we were born? How can we trust that personal opinion and prejudice has been removed from the material? This is why you are so important to our project. By reliving actual memories, you will help us uncover the truth. Together, our team will rewrite history.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "HISTORY"
In the quiz, we stated: "History is accurate."

You responded: "History is only as accurate as the author of the book."

What if you could meet the author of the book? Observe a battle from either side? This is why you are so important to our project. By reliving actual memories, you will help us uncover the truth. Together, our team will rewrite history.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "HISTORY"
In the quiz, we stated: "History is accurate."

You responded: "We should worry about the future."

No doubt you've heard George Santayana's legendary quote - "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." We believe that reliving the past and uncovering the truth will help us create a better future. Together, our team will experience new perspectives within historical events. Together, we will rewrite history.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "HISTORY"
In the quiz, we stated: "History is accurate."

You responded: "I've never been interested in history."

Your response is honest, but we're confident you will soon change your mind. You'll find a great difference between viewing history through a stuffy textbook and experiencing it through the eyes of a participant. Together, our team will experience new perspectives within historical events. Together, we will rewrite history.


Ancestry surveyEdit

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: You need to start playing it safe
Careful... I'm all for sticking it to Abstergo, but open defiance will get you cut off.

(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the statement "I have Italian ancestors." by offering Abstergo a list of your documented genealogy.)

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Yes, there are wrong answers
You offered Abstergo a list of your ancestors? I'd avoid sending them that list, if I were you. Haven't you wondered where they farm memories for the DDS?


From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "ANCESTRY"
In the quiz, we stated: "I have Italian ancestors."

You responded: "I have never researched my genealogy."

We can help you. If you visit the Abstergo offices in your area, our colleagues will provide you with a quick and relatively painless genetic test. As we are currently proving, each person contains valuable knowledge passed along through genetic memory. Perhaps you even hold within you answers to some of history's greatest mysteries.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "ANCESTRY"
In the quiz, we stated: "I have Italian ancestors."

You responded: "Not that I know of."

Perhaps it's something you should research. As we are currently proving, each person contains valuable knowledge passed along through genetic memory. Perhaps you even hold within you answers to some of history's greatest mysteries.


Influence surveyEdit

From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "INFLUENCE"
In the quiz, we stated: "People are easily manipulated."

You responded: "History has proven that statement time and again."

Correct. As you explore the DDS, you will confirm it to be a constant historical truth. Understanding this offers a more realistic view of the world today. Why does "manipulate" need to have such a negative connotation? Why can't the followers follow the great into greatness?


(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the "INFLUENCE" question by saying that if they suspect you of being easily manipulated, then they are wrong.)

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: You'd be surprised...
Are you sure you're not being manipulated? None of us are free from the influence of others. You just need to make sure you're listening to the right ones.

(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the "INFLUENCE" question by saying that you generally get what you want from people.)

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: You won't impress them
You say you generally get what you want from people. That's a confident statement, almost a challenge. You may believe Abstergo is looking for such confidence. No. They're looking for servants.

(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the "INFLUENCE" question by saying that you are not good at manipulating people.)

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Well played?
Are you really a poor manipulator or did you just answer that way to deceive Abstergo? Either way, you're flying below the radar, which is a good thing.

Empathy surveyEdit

(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the "EMPATHY" question with "Whose side do you want me to take?")

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Hello?
Seriously? You asked them which side to take? Either you're making fun of them (not wise) or they owe you an "Abstergo's #1 Buttkisser" mug for your desk.


From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "EMPATHY"
In the quiz, we stated: "You find yourself taking the side of the subject in each memory."

You responded: "It depends on the subject."

It's only natural you'd empathize with the subjects behind the memories and those with a stronger synch will be harder to resist. You're viewing the events through one perspective, one that is often convinced it is doing the right thing. I wonder how you would feel if we sent you the memories of that same subject's rival for review.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "EMPATHY"
In the quiz, we stated: "You find yourself taking the side of the subject in each memory."

You responded: "It's hard to see both sides of the story."

An astute observation. It's rare to find a memory where the subject cannot wholeheartedly justify his actions. DDS users are easily influenced by the induced fugue state, but your clear vision is impressive.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "EMPATHY"
In the quiz, we stated: "You find yourself taking the side of the subject in each memory."

You responded: "No. I'm simply observing their actions. I don't empathize."

It's interesting that you do not feel any empathy during your memory reviews. Your file tells us you passed our test criteria to ensure a solid link with the DDS, so the synchronization should be making an impact. I will forward your report to our engineers to see if we can increase the signal strength.


Intruder surveyEdit

(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the question "What do you know about Erudito?" with "Erudito?". Erudito is pleased that you pretended not to know about them.)

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: No Subject
:)


From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "INTRUDER"
In the quiz, we asked: "What do you know about Erudito?"

You responded: "He seems to know an awful lot about your subject matter."

First, we must stress the dangers of associating with outside connections that force their way into the DDS system. Not only do you risk termination of your contract with us, but you may force us to pursue legal options. You have been a tremendous asset to our program, but you must understand that contact with this "Erudito" user will not be tolerated.



From: Abstergo Industries
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Your answer to "INTRUDER"
In the quiz, we asked: "What do you know about Erudito?"

You responded: "You can follow up through email. I am willing to submit a full report if you request one."

Thank you for your offer to file a report on "Erudito." Please be thorough. If we can track his patterns, we can begin to block his access to the DDS system and continue our work without further interruptions.


(Note: The following message is sent after responding to the question "What do you know about Erudito?" with "I've already filed a full report on him.")

From: Erudito
To: Abstergo recruit
Date/Time: [relative]
Subject: Someone's been naughty...
You reported me? That stings. Not that it really matters... I am miles ahead of these goons. I'm going to have to work harder to open your eyes, aren't I?
