|~ Basim recalling Odin's betryal to Eivor.|
Basim Ibn ishaq is one of the two main antagonists in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla alongside Alfred the Great.
He was a Master Assassin of the Hidden Ones branch located in Constantinople, known to the Norse as Miklagard. Basim met and befriended Sigurd and traveled back with him to Norway to spread the teachings of the Hidden Ones and combat the influence of the Order of the Ancients in Norway and England.
He was originally presented as a mentor figure to Sigurd and Eivor, but it was revealed much later that he was in fact the reincarnation of Loki, one of the Isu. Unlike Sigurd or Eivor, Basim had inherited his previous incarnation's memory and sought vengeance upon Odin for killing Fenrir. He is also the mastermind behind the Viking's invasion against England, in an attempt to destroy the Order of the Ancients, forcing Alfred the Great to keep the Order around to protect his land and people.
He is voiced by Carlo Rota.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla
- Basim is an Arabic name meaning "one who smiles", derived from بَسَمَ (basama) meaning "to smile". His nasab ibn Ishaq means "son of Ishaq" with Ishaq, the Arabic form of Isaac, meaning "laughing".
- Due to being a mentor figure-turned-main antagonist in a pivotal plot twist, Basim's role is a reminiscent to Al Mualim in the first Assassin's Creed installment.
- Unlike Eivor and Sigurd with Odin and Tyr respectively, Loki is Basim's dominant personality to the point that they're pretty much one and the same. It's implied he was this way long before meeting either of them, as Basim tells Eivor that he changed after a meeting with al-Khwarizmi in Baghdad.
