- "Eat your heart out... or I will."
- ―The Puppeteer.
The Puppeteer (harvested from: Felicia Moreno) was an Animi Avatar used by the entertainment branch of Abstergo Industries, as part of their plan to influence the general public, via the console stage of the Animus technology. She used a dagger as her specialty weapon.
The Puppeteer had several unique moves:
(Low Profile, Front)
Facing her target, the Puppeteer savagely kicks their left leg. As they clutch their injured limb, the Puppeteer takes her dagger and slashes them across the side of the abdomen, before impaling their spine, sheathing her weapon as they collapse.
(Low Profile, Back)
Behind her target, the Puppeteer takes out her dagger and viciously stabs it into her victim in the back. Before her contract can react in any way, she spins and slashes the newly inflicted wound, severing their spine at the same time. Following this, the Puppeteer then sheathes her dagger, satisfied that her target is dead.
(High Profile, Front)
Facing her target, the Puppeteer grabs them by their left arm and roughly impales them in the stomach twice with her dagger. As her victim recoils back from being punctured with the blade, the Puppeteer releases her grip on them and watches as their body collapses to the floor.
(High Profile, Back)
Behind her target, the Puppeteer brutally kicks them in the back of the knee, painfully forcing them to kneel. Holding their chin upwards, she then exposes their neck, before taking out her dagger and slicing their throat. From there, her victim falls forward to the ground, dying of blood loss from their wound.
(Personal High Profile, Front)
Facing her target, the Puppeteer surprises them by running up their front acrobatically, before she savagely kicks them in the face, causing them to bend down. While her victim lays stunned on the floor, she skillfully lands on her feet and withdraws her dagger as she kneels, before slitting their throat with a diagonal swipe as she rapidly stands up.
(Personal High Profile, Back)
Behind her target, the Puppeteer bursts forward and rolls over their back with her legs extended in the air, before landing on her knees in front of them. While her victim is dazed on the floor, she quickly unsheathes her dagger and severs their neck to the bone, before standing to her feet and storing her weapon away.
Leaping from above, the Puppeteer unsheathes her dagger in mid-air, before landing on her target. As she crashes into them, she plants her blade into the side of their head, fatally impaling their brain. With her victim laying dead on the floor, the Puppeteer stands up and stores her dagger back at her waist.
Grabbing her seated target's foot, the Puppeteer drags them off the bench until their head rests against it. Before her victim can do anything to defend themselves, she forcefully kicks them in the face, violently sending their head backwards and breaking her target's neck on the bench behind them.
