Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation trailer shows Aveline's reasons for becoming an assassin

Aveline of Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation adopts the tools of the assassin's trade as a response to the turmoil in her surroundings, her backstory briefly detailed in a new trailer released today.

As a child, she lost her mother. As a young adult, her father's wishes for her to have an easy life are dashed. Rather than stand idly by as the Revolution crumbles the world around her, Aveline dons the assassin's garb and seeks to tip the scales in favor of justice.

"Commit injustice in this world, and I will send you to the next," says Aveline in the trailer above. "I am an assassin, and I fight for liberation."
