The ultimate assassin, which has been hinted from AC1 is indian. Ubisoft have tried to get closer and closer to the ultimate assassin ever since the game started. They went to Italy to explore the silk road then they went to the neighbor; China! Then they went to the non-real-indians which Mr. C thought was real india.
All this, maybe ubisoft could have just made Connor Indian. Well at least we know what AC4.2 has in hold for us.
What i do not understand is why Archilles tells him he can pass as an Italian or Spaniard, but gives him a name with Gaelic (Irish) origins. Sure it means wolf or dog lover, which might be applicable to his native origins, but not really.
