Fulke, also known as The Instrument, is the secondary antagonist in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, aside from Basim Ibn Ishaq, the reincarnation of the Isu Loki.
She was a Flemish Paladin and Gnostic mystic who was known by the Order of the Ancients for her extensive knowledge of the Isu. She held a high ranking position within the Order of the Ancients and served as Maegester as well as the only known member of the Wardens of Relics sect.
She was voiced by Gaia Weiss.
During her youth, Fulke lived in a blooming trade hub where she could listen in on conversations from passing merchants from distant lands, such as Saxons, Baltics, Romans or Norsemen. Inspired by the stories and information she heard from these passing merchants and civilians, she educated herself rigorously and eventually came across sacred texts which inspired her to develop quasi-gnostic theological perspectives.
Eventually in her early adulthood, her travels brought her attention towards discarded Isu relics and Isu references, and she followed these references with a rigorous vigor, amassing a great deal of insight into the Isu. Her deep insight into the Isu and their works had gotten her the attention of the Order of the Ancients and she was inducted into the Order. Her occultism and determinations caused her to rise through the ranks quickly and establish herself as a Maegester of the Order of the Ancient's branch in Northern Europe.
Imprisoned in At. Albanes Abbey
At some point in her research for the Isu, she was captured by Lady Eadwyn of Oxenefordscire for her "heretical beliefs" and was promptly arrested and sealed away in St. Albanes Abbey's underground crypts. She stayed confined for several months praying to the One to send someone to deliver her form this confinement. She also spent that time debating the beliefs of the priests and other people on St. Albanes Abbey grounds.
During Sigurd's campaign in Oxenefordscire, Eivor and Basim assisted Sigurd in rescuing her from St. Albanes Abbey in order to learn more about her esoterica. Sigurd was convinced that she could help him figure out his "destiny" and confirm his somewhat "divine heritage", which Basim and Eivor already suspected.
Arriving at the abbey, Eivor and her allies fought their way in and tried to locate the monastery's crypt, where Fulke was being held prisoner. After locating Fulke, Sigurd and his allies found a monk guarding her and freed Fulke. After Fulke blessed them for Sigurd and his company saving her, she led them to a private area to further discuss her esoterica.
The Saga Stone
At the farm, Fulke spoke of an artifact called the Saga Stone, which came to England in the hands of the Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. After Sigurd and Eivor came to a standstill in their arguing, Fulke led Sigurd and his company to Evinghou Tower, where the Saga Stone was being studied by her acolyte.
When they arrived at the tower, the found the tower ransacked and the priest was dead. Outside, Lady Eadwyn surrounded the group and offered a deal, which was the stone for Geadric's life. Sigurd accepted the terms, but an overly emotional Eivor rejected and started a fight, prompting Lady Eadwyn to start a war with Sigurd and his allies and left a battalion of her soldiers to kill Sigurd and his allies as well as Fulke. After defeating Eadwyn's men, Fulke suggested Eivor and her team up to diminish Lady Eadwyn's supplies and reinforcement throughout the region.
After destroying Lady Eadwyn's supplies and reinforcements at Eatun Barn, Fulke and Eivor discussed Sigurd's proclamations of being descended of the Isu. Eivor wondered what Fulke means, but then focused into her aid for Geadric. Fulke stated she would join after she prayed for the dead they killed. She eventually found her way to Geadric's camp and after Eivor diminished Cyne Belle Castle's defenses, she joined them as Geadric launched a full-scale assault on the fortress before King Aelfred can send reinforcements. Fulke fought alongside Sigurd, Basim, Geadric and Eivor and managed to defeat Lady Eadwyn and successfully capture her fortress.
After defeating Eadwyn, Eivor, Fulke, Sigurd, and Basim headed inside the castle and found the Saga Stone. But before Sigurd can attempt to decipher the stone's Isu scripts, King Aelfred and his massive army arrived. This prompted Sigurd to make a parlay instead of fight, since Geadric's forces and resources have been exhausted from their previous assault on Cyne Belle Castle.
Upon Sigurd and King Aelfred parlay coming on to successful terms, Fulke entered and jeopardized the deal. Known as a Paladin, Fulke betrayed Sigurd and his company as she stated that Sigurd figured himself to be a God and that this a "blasphemous belief". With no other choice at hand, Sigurd accepted his place when trading himself with one of Aelfred's war thegn. Fulke then privately asked Aelfred to have Sigurd for her research and Aelfred agreed, but asked her to treat him with care. Fulke then showed a sadistic grin of satisfaction towards Sigurd as she was eager to research his Isu origins.
Basim told Eivor that he will quietly tail them while Eivor reports what has happened her to Randvi back at Ravensthorpe. At the settlement, Eivor received a letter from Randvi, who stated it was from a woman named Fulke. The letter generally stated that Sigurd is in Fulke's care and her belief that he is a flesh descendant of an Isu. At the end of the letter, Fulke admitted to being part of the Order of the Ancients and her title, The Instrument. Disgusted, Eivor told Randvi to report any notifications from Basim's progress in finding Fulke's current location, rationalizing that Sigurd would always be close by her.
The Instrument of the Ancients
- Fulke had secretly ordered the death of King Aelfred towards three members of the Wardens of Faith in Winchestre. Whether this was because she was aware of his secret treachery to the Order or whether she wanted to usurp him was never clarified.
- Fulke's title, The Instrument, coincidentally echoes the name of Instruments of the First Will, the modern day religious cult which sought to revive the Isu and restore humanity's place as slaves beneath the Isu's will.
