Aveline de Grandpré ("Assassin's Creed: Liberation")

Top 10 Video Game Female Protagonists
By
Aveline de Grandpré ("Assassin's Creed: Liberation")

"Assassin's Creed" has incorporated nuanced female characters with a lot of agency since its very first installment, but it wasn't until "Assassin's Creed: Liberation" on the PlayStation Vita in 2012 that one took center stage. Aveline de Grandpré is the child of a wealthy French merchant and a freed African slave who becomes an Assassin to fight injustice in colonial America. In addition to the hallmark parkour and weapons expertise that come with the Assassin mantle, Aveline can also disguise herself as a highborn lady or a lowly slave in order to end the Templar influence from New Orleans all the way to Mexico. Determined and thoughtful, Aveline is brave enough to question the beliefs of the Assassins, and wise enough to carry out her mission regardless.

    even though she shares the playable protagonist role with two others, one of my favorite video game characters of all time is Laverne from Day of the Tentacle. One of the few really genuinely insane female characters who's character isn't based on her looks or status as "female" at all - she's pure comedy. Pure, dark, sociopathic comedy. Her default response line for using her scalpel on un-usable objects will never leave my mind: "I can't, my therapist and I have an agreement."
