- Kody: "Char, I'm trying."
- Charlotte: "I'm sorry. I swear I'm not like this. Before I got involved with the brotherhood I was really nice."

- —Charlotte talking to Kody, 2016.[src]
Kody Adams (1991 – 2016) was the technician of the Assassin team led by Xavier Chen and consisting of Galina Voronina, and later Charlotte de la Cruz. He engineered the Animus their team uses, and calls it by the nickname "Red Rider."
Meeting de la CruzEdit
After Galina and Xavier recruited Charlotte de la Cruz and took her to their cell's hideout in the Salton Sea, they introduced her to Kody, the cell technician and the one who found her online. They explained to her that an Assassin named Joseph Laurier had apparently defected to the Templars in San Diego to inform them of an artifact hidden by his ancestor during the Salem witch trials. They needed Charlotte to enter the Animus and relive her ancestor Thomas Stoddard's memories of the era to determine if Joseph was telling the truth and had betrayed the Brotherhood, or if he was just baiting the Templars.
While Charlotte struggled to stay inside the Animus as she failed to synchronize with Stoddard's harsh methods, Kody attributed her struggle to her being inexperienced with the process. Galina and Xavier meanwhile, discussed her progress, with Galina implying that Charlotte would not be able to synchronize with Kody and Xavier disagreeing with her. Galina in turn compared her to Joseph, saying that people can't change who they are, and that Joseph was finally showing his true colors by allying with the Templars. Later, Kody reported that Charlotte connection has stabilized but worried that if she continued to struggle with Stoddard she could damage her brain.
Later, Kody snagged a message of Abstergo and discovered that Joseph was being held by Didier Hawking, a high level Templar with a specialization in memory hacking. The Assassins feared that Joseph would reveal their location, as such the team decided to load the Animus into a van to allow Charlotte to keep searching while they were driving for San Diego.
Showdown with JosephEdit
Using the Animus, Charlotte witnessed Jennifer Querry's death, and the Assassins agreed that Joseph's ancestor didn't know where the relic was hidden, so he was indeed luring the Templars. Xavier and Galina left the van to rendezvous with Joseph. Charlotte had her doubts, and insisted Kody returned her to Stoddard's memories. Continuing, she realized that Jennifer was not the only ancestor of Joseph present in Salem, and that he was indeed betraying the Brotherhood. With the realization that Xavier and Galina have clearly been sent into a trap. Charlotte decided to go in after them, and Kody gave her the familiar Assassin hoodie attire.
Entering the Abstergo facility Xavier and Galina had gone to meet Joseph at, she managed to infiltrate deeper into the building by tricking an employee to open a secured door. She bound the man and pressed on, declaring herself to not be a killer to Kody. Just as she neared Joseph's floor, she slipped and fell, but was able to spin onto another shaft and hold on with her knife: Kody noted she had begun to inherit Tom's abilities via the Bleeding Effect. Climbing up, she entered a gym and saw that Joseph had already drowned Xavier in a swimming pool, and had broken Galina's leg.
She attacked the burly traitor to prevent him from finishing her off, but he just tossed her into a wall. Joseph explained he betrayed the Brotherhood because his lover Christian had died on a mission overseen by Xavier, but he was still an Assassin and had planted a bomb. As Joseph's bomb went off, Abstergo burst in the room to kill Joseph, and Charlotte carried Galina out through an air vent. They came out in a maintenance room, where Charlotte discovered she had accidentally killed the asthmatic employee she'd bound and gagged to cover her intrusion.
Charlotte loaded Galina into their van, who ordered Kody to contact Gavin Banks - an Assassin Mentor - requesting that the Brotherhood send a team to Salem as soon as possible, as they didn't knew if the Templars were already on their way to acquire the remains of Dorothy Osborne.
Hunted in Mexico Edit
In 2016, the Assassins fled to Mexico, with the injured Galina assuming the role of leader and being adamant about the need to track down Joseph before anything else. Once in Mexico City, they took a room in a motel and through some contacts with the local underground world, hired two discreet doctors to reset Galina's broken leg without asking questions. However, as the female doctor tended to Galina, the male, drew a pistol. Galina saw him, pulled out her own before him and shot the Templar agent to death. She then ordered Charlotte to grab his gun and aim it at the female doctor. The woman explained she knew nothing of her fellow doctor's motives, stating that he was new, and Galina knocked her out after Charlotte told her that she was telling the truth.
They moved to the opposite motel, as it would be the last place the Templars would expect. Charlotte noted to Kody that she had wanted to leave back before the man intended to attack them, believing that she was not cut out for the situation. Kody reassured her that there was a reason she was there and that, due to her impressive performance, she might even help them find the hacker collective Erudito. Realizing they were the ones Consus had obliquely directed her to find, she had Kody hook her up to the Darknet to find them. After a night of searching, she discovered a meeting was planned for the following week, but the location was password-encrypted. The sole hint was the question, "What does the cute Pishta say?"
Death in ArgentinaEdit
After entering into an alliance with Erudito, Kody gave is life to prevent the Templars from recovering the content of the organization's servers during their assault on the hidden HQ of Erudito in Argentina.
