I finished the story of Valhalla today and I had some doubts about some aspects of the plot that I wanted to discuss with you. What I understand : Eivor is a reincarnation of Odin, Sigurd is a reincarnation of Tyr, Valka's mother is the reincarnation of Freia and Basim is the reincarnation of Loki. This is an observation according to what I saw since the end of Asgard storyline and the arch of England. But the big question for me is, who is Aletheia for Basim / Loki? Were Layla and Kassandra used by Aletheia as well as Desmond was used by Juno?
Another interesting point of discussion. The Staff of Hermes literally raised Basim 1200 years after his death. In theory does this mean that the staff is also capable of resurrecting Amunet's remains? Altaïr? Ezio? Or any other dead person with a body / skeleton?
Now what for me is a big scoop of history. If Basim manages to survive after having touched the staff only once, why did Kassandra die after dropping the Hermes staff at Odyssey ? (remembering that Basim doesn't need to hold the staff to stay alive even though he is over 1200 years old). Could Kassandra be alive in the modern day?
Another interesting point, if I understand correctly, The Order of the Templars was born from the tomb of the Order of the Ancients, and it is not necessarily the successor to it. Since while the ancients were centered on ISUs, the Templars were anthropocentric and Christian in origin. If what I understand is correct, then we have not yet seen the origin of the conflict between the hidden one's / assassin's and the Templars.
The way things are going, will Basim be the new villain or protagonist? What do you think ?
Overall, I think the story was good. By far the strongest point of AC: Valhalla, congratulations to the writers.
