____________________________________________________________________!!!!THIS DESIGN IS A W.I.P (WORKS IN PROGRESS)!!!!This design is being made into a costume in real life, so don't even think about stealing the ideas! Especially since you don't know the fabric and intricate designs I'm using
You can keep track of the actual costume by keeping watch on my cosplay/photography account
Its a really old photo now, but this is what it looks like on me thus far [link]
-This design is for my Assassin's Creed 2 OC, Ealasaid de Forsythe. She accompanies Ezio Auditore as a close friend in his adventures to find the pieces of Eden and uncover Altair's secrets.
-A lot of this is still in the works and what is presented here is also in abstract form. Ex: the blue fading into silver on the edges is just to represent a floral type of blue fabric that has silver designs on it that is intricate.
-The design is based on a few Scottish symbols as well as Italian, 15th century clothing, and designs used for Ezio's various outfits from AC 2 and Brotherhood.
-Since the Fidelio clan originally started by Italian origins, Ealasaid had her clothing specifically designed in paid tribute to her the clan's Italian predecessor , Ivano Sabatino, but having a love for her Scottish ancestry, she pays a few tributes in the design using the Griffin symbol as well as the weaponry and Scottish belt pouch.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Ealasaid de Forsythe (Ealasaid of Forsythe)Ealasaid (origin: Hebrew, Gaelic.)
God is a vow.Forsythe (origin: Gaelic, Scottish.)
From Fear, a man, and Syth, upright, honest, stiff. from an Anglicized form of the Gaelic personal name Fearsithe, composed of the elements fear ‘man’ + sith ‘peace’. Some early forms with prepositions, as for example William de Fersith (Edinburgh 1365), seem to point to an alternative origin as a habitation name, but no place name of suitable form is known. The spelling Forsythe is associated chiefly with Northern Ireland.
Weight: 155 lb
Hair: Light Brown
Eye Color: Grayish Blue
Hometown: Edinburgh, ScotlandThe Fidelio Clan
-f(i)-de-lio as a boy’s name is a variant of Fidel (Latin), and the meaning “faithful”.
Stationed in Beirut and started by Ivano Sabatino
who was sent to open an Assassin’s Den to extend relations with Masyaf from Italy. Ivano rescued the siblings Jedidiah de Forsythe
and Fiorenza de Forsythe
out of slavery when they were taken after their parent’s death at the hands of Templars and stolen away to be put into slavery by the Templars, coming from Scotland and ported into Beirut where one remaining human trafficking firm was led by a Templar under the name Ghayoor Jafari
. After assassinating Ghayoor, Ivano adopts Jedidiah and Fiorenza as his own, but a few years later after dying of cancer, Jedidiah becomes the leader of the Fidelio Clan assisted alongside by his sister. Extending the Fidelio clan back to her homeland of Scottland, Fiorenza stations the Fidelio clan in Edinburgh, keeping in contact with Jedidiah. Many years later Jedidiah dies during a mission with no wife or heir to take over the Fidelio in Beirut and it soon falls apart under Templar rule. However, Fiorenze starts a family in Edinburgh where the next generation after her is carried on through her descendant, Ealasaid de Forsythe.
Instead of assassinating in the daylight, the Fidelio assassin’s are masters of the night, taught how to infiltrate any building and to pick any lock. Unlike the clan that Altair follows, chanting the philosophy of “Nothing is True, Everything is permitted”, Fidelio follows the belief of, “Consequence follows actions, actions speak louder than words.” Simply philosophizing that everything an individual does has a good or bad consequence of some kind that all our lives are connected and based upon the actions of each other, and that words are meaningless without action. An individual can state one thing, and do entirely the opposite, and they are to be dealt with permanently in order to make a change. You can change a man's words, but you cannot change a man's core. Origin
Ealasaid has always studied about the history of Assassin's including Altair and because of her rich family, she can afford to travel to other countries and or locations as she sees fit, but soon her ventures in Italy leads her to the conspiracies with the Auditore family. After being properly trained she soon joins Fidelio. Although Ealasaid follows the clan's belief, she begs to differ. She does not believe in assassinations because she doesn't believe it is anyone's place to take a life. Everything happens for a reason, be it good or bad. The first target she was ever given she merely injured enough and threatened enough that if her target did not change their ways, she could hunt them down and kill them. She is a master of persuasion and could convince nearly anyone to see the truth in their ways, but the Fidelio Creed did not approve of her methods, believing that killing the targets was vital and didn't leave the path of the future open to chance. Not only that, but revealing herself openly to her targets that were left alive would eventually find out who she was and hunt her down, compromising the clan. They argued with her that her methods would not work on everyone and that she was borderline betraying everything the clan represented by lying about her true intentions of what she would do with the training she was given, but she was defiant on her stance.
For a temporary time her words became true as each of her assigned targets were reasoned with civilly, nearly convincing her clan that maybe killing wasn’t always the answer; that is until she met her match. Her sixth target, a man named Amatore de Ferrari
was a ruling tyrant visiting from Italy who was having direct connections with her previous fifth target, Damiano de Greco
formerly a conspirator alongside Rodrigo Borgia
. Although she had convinced Damiano to stop antagonizing his people, the manipulations of Amatore had once again corrupted Damiano with the help of simple bribery that Damiano was prone to fall for. Following the conspiracies with the dealings of Amatore and Damiano’s, she further dealt into a much more construed conspiracy with the dealings of Giovanni Auditore. Delving deeper and deeper into both her targets she discovers about the assassination of Giovanni and his two sons, one that escaped alive; Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
She learned how Ezio has been an assassin, trying to hunt down Borgia and resides somewhere near Florence, Italy. When she finally hunts down Amatore, she falls into a trap that Damiano helped Amatore construe. For the first time she is forced to try to assassinate both her targets out of mere self defense and learning for the first time that words alone cannot change a man, that sometimes action must be taken. She fought for her dear life, nearly being raped as she was caught by an ambush, but what was worse was that her fears were realized as soon enough her clan was compromised and they no longer allowed her to be a part of Fidelio. She was chastised from the clan as some of the key members were caught and hung at the gallows. With nowhere to run and fear of her family being discovered and with no help from her clan, she fled to Florence to seek out Ezio, hoping that with his help, they can both stop the Borgia conspiracy.
