“我忠于兄弟会。我忠于过去的常识。所以你要么杀了我,要么就从我面前消失。长官。”
——埃曼努埃尔对威廉·迈尔斯说,2014年。[来源]
埃曼努埃尔·巴拉萨

埃曼努埃尔·巴拉萨(Emmanuel Barraza),也被称为曼尼(Manny),是一名驻扎在阿泰尔II号 上的刺客组织成员。他曾是一名士兵,现在担任船上的装甲与武器教练。

生平

早年

埃曼努埃尔曾一度在军中服役,[1]他曾在他的狗牌上烧了一个刺客徽记,以此展示他对组织的热忱。[2]在他作为刺客的第一个任务中,埃曼努埃尔被威廉·迈尔斯委派寻找一名在反恐战争中出现的圣殿骑士。然而,他却发现了一辆满载着孩子的巴士,孩子们的胸口绑着炸药,而这辆车将被阻挠和平谈判。[1]

两害相权取其轻,埃曼努埃尔被迫杀死了绑着炸弹的孩子们,以破坏信条的第一原则——不滥杀无辜——为代价,去确保和平会谈的成功。然而,这件事让埃曼努埃尔的情绪产生了极大的波动,足以让他发誓绝不再夺走任何人的生命,尽管他仍会继续为刺客组织效力,获取武器和训练他的刺客同伴使用武器。埃曼努埃尔最终被指派登上阿泰尔II号,由直接刺客领导人盖文·班克斯指挥,这个举动让埃曼努埃尔认为威廉把“【他】推到一边【给了盖文】”。[1]

日本任务

2013年10月1日,在苏禄海上航行时,巴拉萨检查了从菲律宾枪匠手中为船员们购买的武器,为有可能在日本大阪阿布斯泰戈特工的战斗做准备。[3]

埃曼努埃尔和他的刺客同伴在12月4日抵达大阪,他陪同盖文和另一名刺客来到大阪兄弟会的总部。他们发现他们的刺客同仁已经遭到攻击,埃曼努埃尔利用他的专业知识调查尸体倒在那里和他们是如何死亡的。盖文利用他的鹰眼视觉发现是黑帮进行了这次攻击,而不是阿布斯泰戈。埃曼努埃尔和他的刺客同伴们随后受命寻找任何刺客幸存者和调查攻击者的身份。[4]

一个曾被推测已经灭亡的黑帮分支阴摩罗鬼组被怀疑制造了攻击,12月12日,埃曼努埃尔设法跟踪了一笔现金找到了阴摩罗鬼组的新总部。[5]

12月17日,埃曼努埃尔同盖文前往阴摩罗鬼组的总部。总部的守卫高仓清志拒绝让他们进入,并威胁称如果他们不离开就会攻击他们。盖文试图用心理战扰乱清志的思想,但结果他脸上捱了一击,被打倒在地。[6]在清志殴打盖文的时候,埃曼努埃尔没有出面干预,这让盖文想起他是个和平主义者。不过,他听见两位其他阴摩罗鬼组的成员讨论说“婆婆”——望月纱子——不会喜欢这样做,因为她在努力隐藏兄弟会。[7]

埃曼努埃尔阻挡清志的攻击

埃曼努埃尔意识到这些流氓实际是刺客,当清志试图杀死盖文时,他用手掌挡住了清志的袖剑[7]埃曼努埃尔随即问他信条的第一原则是什么,在清志回答之后,埃曼努埃尔向他展示了自己烙有刺客徽记的狗牌。清志向埃曼努埃尔和盖文道歉,稍后他称赞埃曼努埃尔处理疼痛的能力,称他“就像是日本人”。[2]

12月23日,埃曼努埃尔在阿泰尔II号 上找斯蒂芬妮·赵医生更换他伤口的绷带。He listened in silence as Gavin complained that while Emmanuel's wound was being fussed over, he had to treat his own injuries from the beating Kiyoshi gave him, and that he would have been fine if Emmanuel had just done his job and protected him.[8]

On 31 December, Emmanuel and the rest of the Altair II crew traveled with Saeko and Kiyoshi to Tokyo to gather supplies. He sparred with Kiyoshi for several hours before being convinced to come with him and Chiu to a karaoke bar. Emmanuel was filmed singing by Chiu, and threatened to break his vow to never kill again if she ever showed it to anyone.[9]

俄罗斯任务

After the crew deciphered another clue from William Miles' Codex, Emmanuel was chosen to accompany Gavin and Emmett Leary on a mission to Moscow to meet an Assassin cell in the city. By 16 March 2014, they made contact with Galina Voronina, who asked them to help her assassinate her mother, an Assassin scientist who had gone crazy and put herself and the rest of the Moscow cell in a Animus until they had all been driven insane by the Bleeding Effect.[10]

On 20 March, Emmanuel and the others arrived at the Assassin laboratory at Protvino, where they encountered the maddened Assassins. However, he refused to participate in the fight or even carry a weapon, and simply watched as the others killed their insane comrades. The group subsequently forced their way to the main laboratory, where they found Galina's mother still strapped into the Animus, talking nonsense about finding her husband. Emmanuel watched with the others as Galina put her mother out of her misery with her Hidden Blade.[11]

Emmanuel and the other Assassins left Moscow shortly thereafter, with Gavin having convinced Galina to join the crew of the Altair II, relieving Emmanuel of his role as enforcer. On 27 March, they arrived in Saint Petersburg and rejoined the rest of the crew, who welcomed Galina aboard.[12]

清查间谍

埃曼努埃尔被威廉审问

After the mission in Moscow, Emmanuel and the rest of the Altair II crew were directed by Gavin to find out where William Miles was hiding from a clue in the latter's journal.[13]They deciphered the riddles within to a hidden cove in Norway, and on 1 May the Altair II arrived at William's whereabouts.[14]

When Rebecca Crane began upgrading the systems on the Altair II, she discovered that a spy on the ship was uploading reports to a database run by a group called the Initiates.[15]Emmanuel and the rest of the crew, except for Gavin and Galina, were confined to their quarters on the ship until they could be interrogated and cleared of suspicion by William.[16]

On 9 May, Emmanuel was the third crew member interrogated by William, who grilled the pacifist on his first mission as an Assassin, believing him to have ample reason for betraying the Brotherhood. William then pointed out Emmanuel's inaction during the missions in Osaka and Protvino, as well as the fact that some of the Initiates' signals were coming from his old military training base. Despite William's insinuations, Emmanuel simply reiterated his loyalty to the Assassins, and told William to either kill him or get out of his face.[1]
