'No. Not Gods. We simply came...before'
-Minerva and Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed II)
My take on a member of the First Civilization from the Assassin's Creed series. They are a mentally and technologically advanced race that is responsible for creating the human race that appears throughout the game as holographic images in the forms of Juno, Minerva and Jupiter. They were hailed as Gods by their human creations after they fought to protect them from the first catastrophe, a global disaster that nearly wiped both races out. Eventually the First Civilization died out and the holograms, created to be fully interactive took over in their stead to warn humanity of the second impending catastrophe that would happen on....yep you guessed it 21/12/12 :D
Anyway this is Veritas (the Roman Goddess of Truth) I tried to follow the same vein as Minerva and Juno in her design, I am just fascinated by their designs. Veritas is a Chronicler or an archivist responsible for managing a Great Library where she has collected, collated and stored the history of the Earth under the rule of the First Civilization, her library is linked to the Grand Temple where the Capitoline Triad operates. There is a lot to her story and a lot of it is speculation for the new game.
