Dr. Victoria Bibeau is a psychiatrist and researcher for the Lineage Discovery and Acquisition division of Abstergo Industries at The Aerie, as well as a member of the Templar Order. She was formerly an employee at Abstergo Entertainment, tasked with helping analysts that had difficulties coping with the Animus' after-effects, such as the Bleeding Effect.
In 2014, Bibeau was asked to do a psychiatric evaluation of Robert Fraser, an Abstergo analyst who was believed to be suffering from the Bleeding Effect while reliving the memories of Arno Dorian, an Assassin during the French Revolution. She concluded that Fraser could have difficulties maintaining a professional distance from his subject going forward and recommended any outside activity related to the analyst's assignment be curtailed.
Aidan St. Claire, Fraser's supervisor, would subsequently make it so that Fraser could visit Bibeau whenever the project became too overwhelming. The two entered into a correspondence, with Fraser confessing that he had broken up with Anna, his girlfriend; Arno's memories had caused him to fall in love with Élise instead.
Flashbacks of the Bastille plagued him on Bastille Day, with Fraser begging Bibeau to take him off the case. She believed they needed to continue their work regardless, but offered to supply him with medication that could help. Bibeau also recommended Fraser write whenever he felt the Bleeding Effect set in, in an effort to separate himself from Arno.
In spite of this, the symptoms continued and Fraser even began to hallucinate; once this came to light, he was made to take a medical leave of absence. He subsquently spent a week in the recovery center with Bibeau, during which she instructed him to destroy all documentation on Arno's life and leak the unsequenced memories to the Assassins. Although Fraser succeeded in this task, he was caught and terminated shortly thereafter.
However, Bibeau pleaded misguided ignorance and, thanks to her numerous friends in Abstergo who vouched for her, successfully convinced the Templars that she did what she did because she truly believed it was the right thing to do at the time. She was subsequently offered to join their cause and became a loyal member of the Templar Order.
Looking for the TridentEdit
Following her induction into the Order, Bibeau was appointed as a senior researcher for the Lineage Discovery and Acquisition division at The Aerie.
In 2016, Bibeau welcomed a group of four teenagers to The Aerie, after they were captured by a Templar strike team while using a stolen Animus. With the help of her superior, Isaiah, Bibeau tried to ease the captives' worries, in the hopes that they would reveal what they had discovered about the Trident of Eden.
Deciding honesty was the best policy, the two Templars told the teenagers about their Order, stressing the benevolence of their organization. They then told them that because of their ancestry, Sean, Grace, David and Natalya were now a crucial part of their efforts to find the Piece of Eden. Bibeau also revealed to them that Monroe, their missing leader, was one of her former patients, whom she had forbidden from reliving the memories of his father to work through the numerous abuses he endured during his childhood.
In this way, they managed to convince Sean and Grace, who revealed the location of the "faith prong", a segment of the Trident owned by Ulysses S. Grant until his death. At the same time, an informant in Abstergo called "Rothenburg", who had been inactive for some time, contacted the Assassins that had rescued the other two teenagers, Owen and Javier. However, Monroe got to Grant's former home first and left with the artifact before either the Assassins or Templars could claim it.
Later, Bibeau told Natalya, who was wary of the Templars, that they had contacted their parents to let them know they were safe and that Abstergo would offer a generous compensation for their help. She also told the teenagers that the second part of the Trident was somewhere in China.
While there she stayed in touch with Isaiah, helping him to manage the teenagers at the Aerie.
- Bibeau is not a native English speaker, having a slight French accent.
- Despite the fact that the two books covered the same period, in Assassin's Creed: Last Descendants – Locus, Bibeau was shown wearing a wedding ring while in Assassin's Creed: Heresy, she confirmed to Hathaway what was stated in her file, that she don't have a husband (or wife) nor a family.
