The Red Coat (real name: Eleanor Mallow) 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. Her specialty weapon was a spadroon, a swift British military sword.
The Red Coat had several unique moves:
(Low Profile, Front)
Walking up to her target, the Red Coat pulls out her spadroon, before striking them in the forehead with its hilt. She then takes advantage of her victim's defenselessness by grabbing their shoulder and piercing their stomach with her sword, to which they crumple to the ground after she rapidly withdraws her blade from their lifeless body.
(Low Profile, Back)
Approaching her target from behind, the Red Coat swiftly slashes them diagonally across their spine with her spadroon. As they react, she spins the blade skillfully in her hand and then cleanly stabs it up through their back, impaling her victim's heart from behind and causing them to fall forward, where they go on to die of blood loss on the ground.
(High Profile, Front)
Running up to her target, the Red Coat unsheathes her sword and stabs the tip of it through their heart. While her victim reacts with pain from the strike, she quickly removes her sword from their body and spins it around, removing the blood and storing it away as they collapse backwards.
(High Profile, Back)
Sprinting over to her target, the Red Coat suddenly vaults around them with her spadroon drawn, before pressing her weapon into their neck and slitting their throat as she pulls them with her. Once her feet touch the ground, she quickly removes her sword from her victim's neck, causing them to twirl around to their death.
Leaping onto her target from above, the Red Coat removes her sword in mid-air. When she lands, she forces them onto their back and impales her victim in their heart with her sword, before standing and leaving their motionless corpse on the ground.
The Red Coat grabs her seated target's foot and drags them off the bench, until their head rests against it. Before her victim can do anything to defend themselves, the Red Coat forcefully kicks them in the face, violently sending their head backwards and breaking their neck on the bench behind them.
