Agile Guard
Agile Guards, or simply just called Agiles, are a type of enemy encountered in Assassin's Creed. They appear in Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and finally, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. These type of guards are one of those rarer type of enemies that can outrun an Assassin and possesses the ability of free-running. Sometimes, in enemy pursuits with other guards, the Agile Guards usually are the first ones to get the enemy and damage them using their short swords or daggers. The Agiles' attack is not too big, or weak enough. They compensate it with their fast movement and incredible dodging abilities. In groups, these Agiles are very dangerous, with their rapid combat style. Some Agiles wear shinier and armor with more of an abstract design, indicating that they are more skillful and have higher rank than normal Agiles. Agiles usually are found with daggers or short blades. The examples of these daggers/short blades are the Stiletto knife, a Butcher's knife, or a Sultan's knife. They are not a kind of enemy to be underestimated.
