第一部分：摘取自海瑟姆·E· 肯威的日记 编辑
The following morning, Haytham followed Betty to the General Post Office on Lombard Street, and intercepted a courier from a letter from her addressed to Digweed in the Black Forest town of St. Peter, not far from Freiburg.
Haytham and Birch arrived there two weeks later. They asked a shopkeeper for information, but he was reluctant, so Haytham threatened his son. The shopkeeper revealed two British soldiers had asked for Digweed's location. He had responded that Digweed lived in a cabin fifteen miles north, and they ordered him to deny anyone else the information on pain of death.
Haytham and Birch dashed out and rode eight miles north. While their horses rested, Haytham scouted the area with a spyglass, and spotted one of the soldiers, who had pointed ears, and the two resumed their ride to the cabin.
There, they found the soldier about to slit Digweed's throat. Haytham threw his sword at his arm, and pursued and confronted him into the forest, while Birch attended to Digweed. In the ensuing fight, Haytham brutally defeated the soldier, who turned out to be the man with the West Country accent. Haytham demanded to know why his father was killed, and before he died, the soldier revealed that Edward was an Assassin, and was killed for something in his possession.
Haytham went to inform Birch, only to discover Digweed had died of his wounds. Disappointed, he gave Birch a paper from the knifeman's body, revealing he was a member of the Coldstream Guards, who were fighting under Braddock in the Dutch Republic. After a disagreement over Haytham's suspicions of Braddock, Haytham rode off to find the pointy eared man.
Haytham chronicled his day pursuing the pointy eared man on the horse, whom he had christened Scratch for the way she nuzzled him for an apple.
Haytham and Scratch came to the corpse strewn site of a battle, and spotted the pointy eared man riding back to the rejoin the army. Both men left their tired horses and ran, but Haytham became stuck in a thick pool of mud, and the killer attacked him. Haytham managed to strike his knee and stabbed his sword into his thigh, wrenching himself out of the mud. The British troops came across the two men struggling: Haytham explained he was an associate of Braddock and demanded the man be taken into his custody. The commanding officer ignored him and struck him unconscious with the hilt of his sword.
Haytham was woken with cold water and found himself in the hangman's noose with four other men, including the pointy eared officer, who was executed for desertion. Haytham protested, demanding Braddock's presence, but the executioner ignored him, so Haytham knocked off his stool and wrapped his legs around the assistant's throat. The executioner, who was checking the pointy eared man's body, realized what was happening and ran back up the platform. Haytham maneuvered the assistant's body into the executioner, breaking the assistant's neck, and the platform collapsed.
After being treated for his injuries by Doctor Tennant, Haytham was greeted by Braddock, who explained he was being executed as they assumed he was the pointy eared man's accomplice. He sneered over the death of Edward's killer, whom he identified as Tom Smith, and was unconcerned that he had been in his regiment all along. Braddock granted Haytham permission to continue looking for any associates he could have, and requested his fellow Templar aid him in the defence of the fortress of Bergen op Zoom.
Haytham met with Birch at White's, who explained he was holding hostage an Italian Assassin's associate who could decode Vedomir's journal, but that she needed her missing son. Birch ordered Haytham to retrieve him from Corsica, and also asked him about Braddock's activities. Haytham told Birch of when Braddock's executioner Slater and his new assistant murdered a family during the retreat from Bergen op Zoom, and that he believed he was moving away from the Templars.
Haytham went into his carriage, driven by Jim Holden, a soldier who befriended him in the Dutch Republic. Holden had been the only man forthcoming with information regarding Tom Smith, as his brother had been hanged by Braddock's mercenaries for stealing stew, an offense normally punishable by flogging. Holden took up the job of Haytham's driver.
In Corsica, Haytham spent two days observing a group of rebel encampment, where Miko, an Assassin guarded Lucio Albertine, the 21-year old Birch had sent him to find. The Genoese came to attack, and in the confusion Haytham pretended to be an Assassin sent to retrieve Lucio, while Miko fended off the attackers. Lucio wanted to aid his people, so Haytham claimed he had been sent by his mother, but this caused a negative reaction, prompting Haytham to simply render him unconscious.
After lowering Lucio and himself down a ravine into a cave, Miko confronted Haytham, knocking aside his father's sword, but Haytham tackled him onto the edge's ravine, and unfastened his Hidden Blade bracer to make lose his left grip and slide down the rope with his right hand. After Haytham threatened to cut the rope if he tried to climb back up, Miko took up his suggestion to flee and fight another day. Afterwards, Haytham had Birch's associates transport Lucio to France, while he chartered a ship to Italy to distract the Assassins.
Haytham came to Birch's chateau to check on Monica and Lucio, who were chained in the cellar, greatly disturbing him. Haytham promptly threatened Birch into ensuring they would not be harmed once their work was done.
Invited to a performance of The Beggar's Opera at the Royal Opera House by Birch, Haytham was surprised to see Miko was to be his next assassination target: the journal identified him as possessing an amulet around his neck as what the Templars needed.
After assassinating Miko with his Hidden Blade and obtaining the amulet, Haytham was ordered to locate a precursor storehouse in the region of New York and Massachusetts, and was informed that passage had been booked for him on a ship bound for Boston.
Haytham mentioned that the journey on the Providence had been an eventful one, as an Assassin had tried to kill him and recover the amulet. During the voyage, he read Vedomir's journal, and admittedly became as obsessed with Those Who Came Before as Birch.
Greeted in Boston by Charles Lee, a young man whose army commission was with Braddock, Haytham came to the Green Dragon Tavern and met with William Johnson. Johnson's research had been stolen by mercenaries hired by the Colonial Assassins, so Haytham, Lee and Thomas Hickey attacked the bandit compound to retrieve it. Johnson also identified the amulet as appearing Kanien'kehá:ka in origin.
Hickey suggested gaining the Kanien'kehá:ka's trust by liberating a man enslaving natives: Lee noted Benjamin Church could help them identify the slaver. Discovering the Church residence was ransacked, Haytham and Lee spoke to witnesses, who revealed Silas Thatcher's men had taken Church to the waterfront houses. There, Haytham and Lee rescued Church from Silas's torturer Cutter, and brought him to the Green Dragon Tavern.
While Church recovered from his wounds, Haytham and Lee went to recruit John Pitcairn, but his commander, Braddock, refused to give him leave for his Templar duties. Not giving up, Haytham stalked Braddock's regiment as he recruited civilians to fight in the French and Indian War. When Slater walked off to relieve himself, Haytham killed him and took his uniform, so he could blend in and speak to Pitcairn.
Meanwhile, Lee disguised himself as a disgruntled civilian and threw horse dung at Braddock, enraging him. Haytham seized the opportunity to attack Braddock, humiliating him as he left with Pitcairn.
The Templars infiltrated Silas's compound at Southgate Fort by seizing a slave convoy and disguising themselves as soldiers. While driving the wagon, Haytham sat next to a beautiful woman. During the attack, where Benjamin killed Silas, she helped her fellow natives to safety, and Haytham found himself entranced.
Lee tracked the woman to Lexington, where she was stirring trouble with Braddock's troops. She introduced herself as Kaniehtí:io, or simply "Ziio", and Haytham showed her the amulet. He guided her to Braddock's troops at Concord, and he proposed an alliance to kill him.
In the town's tavern, Haytham eavesdropped on the troops, and overheard George Washington and John Fraserdiscuss Braddock's plans to capture Fort Duquesne.
The Templars met Ziio in the Ohio Country, where she had gathered men from the Abenaki, Lenape and Shawnee Nations to ambush Braddock.
Haytham disguised himself as a British soldier and rode to Braddock. He saw him ordering his mercenaries to spare no one, claiming the Native Americans were little more than animals who ate their own dead. When an officer corrected him by noting those were just stories, Braddock shot him in the face. Haytham pulled his pistol on Braddock, but unfortunately the French launched their attack.
Saved at the last minute from a shot by Lee, who was serving under Braddock, Haytham gave chase. Braddock's horse reared, causing him to fall off, but before he could be killed, Washington shot Haytham's horse beneath him. Ziio knocked Washington off his own horse, allowing Haytham to chase Braddock.
Braddock lost his breath, and turned to face Haytham, who stabbed him in the heart. Before he could watch him die, Washington's troops showed up to recover the general. Haytham fled, but opted to inform Ziio he had upheld his bargain.
Ziio showed Haytham her people's sacred site, but to Haytham's disappointment, the key did not open it. Regardless, he thanked her, and she embraced him with a kiss.
Haytham returned to the Green Dragon Tavern, informing his comrades he did not find what he sought, and would instead turn their attentions to establishing a permanent presence in the colonies. He also inducted Lee into the Order.
Haytham pondered whether he was in love with Ziio, having spent a few weeks camping with her.
Lee greeted Haytham with a letter from Holden, and informed him Braddock had died of his wounds. Lee also stated the other Templars were interested in camping at the sanctuary, but Haytham objected. Overhearing their conversation, Ziio believed Haytham was manipulating her, and demanded he leave.
Holden's letter simply stated, "I have found her." Returning to London, Haytham returned the journal to Birch and lied that his search in America had directed him to the Ottoman Empire. Meeting with Holden there, Haytham was informed that Jenny had been sold into slavery. They tracked her to Constantinople and then Damascus, where she was held in the governor's palace.
The duo entered a trapdoor into the baths beneath the haremlik, and after a struggle, obtained a pair of eunuchs' outfits. They found her serving a concubine in the courtyard, and on recognizing Haytham, she raised her voice, demanding to know if Birch was dead. Guards came, and Holden declared he would stay behind to fend them off while Haytham and Jenny escaped.
Haytham learned that Holden had been taken to the Abou Gerbe monastery on Mount Ghebel Eter in Egypt, to be turned into a eunuch. Finding him already castrated and buried in the sand, Haytham pulled him out and placed him on his horse. He armed himself, entered the monastery, and savored every moment as he slaughtered the priests and set fire to the building.
While Holden recovered in a cottage, Haytham and Jenny spoke. She was disturbed that Haytham had become a Templar under Birch, and confirmed that Birch's mercenaries - the ones who also worked for Braddock - killed Edward for his journal, which was the one Haytham retrieved from Vedomir.
The trio arrived at Birch's chateau and killed his head guard, but deferred to attack at night, just as Birch did. Meanwhile, Jenny clarified to Haytham that she was the one who told their father Birch was a Templar, hence their argument before his death. Haytham realized he indirectly told Birch of the journal's hiding place in the billiards room, having threatened Digweed only to learn he did not know where the journal was located, and that Birch killed him in Germany to stop him from exposing the truth.
Haytham, Jenny and Holden launched their attack, taking out Birch's men including Harrison. As he entered Birch's chamber, Haytham plunged his sword into the door and the guard behind it. After Haytham admonished Birch for inducting him into the Order with lies, Jenny attacked him with a knife. Birch countered her and held the knife to her throat, but she continued to struggle, claiming she would be fine with dying if it allowed her half-brother to kill him.
She finally thrashed Birch onto the sword stuck in the door, ending his life. Meanwhile, Holden checked on Monica and Lucio, and brought them upstairs. Monica thanked him for freeing them, and said she and her son would take some food and the horses from the stables as they departed. Haytham picked up the guard's sword, and gave it to Lucio to defend his mother from potential bandits. He responded by plunging the sword into Haytham.
Thankfully, Lucio missed Haytham's vital organs, enabling him to survive and recover over the following months. Holden tended to him, and explained per his instructions, he spared Lucio and allowed them to leave. Haytham overheard Jenny make plans to return to Queen Anne's Square.
Haytham awoke to hear Jenny screaming: as Haytham was now fine, Holden opted to hang himself on a clothes line, unable to live with what the Coptic priests had done to him.
Haytham recounted Holden's burial, Jenny's return to London and his return to America, where he bought a plantation in Virginia. As the American Revolution culminated into the Boston Tea Party, Haytham met with his Templar brothers in Boston to discuss how they could take advantage of the conflict.
There, Lee claimed Kaniehtí:io had died during an attack on her village ordered by George Washington in 1760, and the topic turned to a boy, roughly five-years old, whom they had encountered on their way to the village before the attack. They then explained he had encountered a native boy in Martha's Vineyard in 1770, wearing Ziio's necklace, and again at the Tea Party, now wearing the robes of an Assassin.
Haytham recounted the Assassin killing Johnson and Pitcairn as the war broke out, while he plotted to kill George Washington and replace him with Lee. The Assassin targeted Hickey's counterfeiting operation in New York, causing both of them to be arrested and thrown into Bridewell Prison. Haytham visited Hickey, and after glimpsing the Assassin in his cell, confirmed that he was his son. Despite this, Haytham permitted Lee to go ahead with having the Assassin framed for plotting to kill Washington and to be executed, giving Hickey the opportunity to assassinate the Commander-in-Chief.
Regretting his decision to have his son killed, Haytham came disguised to Connor's execution at the City Hall. He saw the Mentor Achilles Davenport in attendance, and that one of the other Colonial Assassins was aiming a bowat the hangman's rope. The arrow loosed was unable to break the rope as Connor fell through the trapdoor, forcing Haytham to throw a knife at it, releasing him. Afterwards, Haytham kept quiet about betraying the Templars as Lee explained that Connor had promptly killed Hickey and foiled the assassination plot.
Church had betrayed the Continental Army, and stole supplies from Valley Forge, so Haytham judged him a traitor to the Templars too for placing personal gain over the Revolution. While tracking Church to an abandoned church (something not lost on Haytham), he encountered Connor, who was also searching for the supplies. After agreeing to an alliance, they encountered Church's mercenaries and learned of his location in New York.
As they travelled to the abandoned Smith and Company Brewery in New York, Haytham asked Connor how his mother was, feigning ignorance of her death to convince him the Templars were not responsible. Inside, they confronted a decoy, who revealed Church had fled with the supplies to Martinique. Haytham and Connor escaped when Church's mercenaries set fire to the building.
After a month pursuing Church on Connor's ship the Aquila, "trapped" with Robert Faulkner, Haytham grabbed the wheel and collided the ship with Church's schooner. Jumping aboard, Haytham confronted Church below deck, dodging a shot from his pistol and proceeding to beat him profusely. Connor arrived and learned of the supplies' location from Church before ending his life.
In New York, Haytham spoke to an informant nicknamed Twitch, who explained the soldiers of the British Armywere not informed of any plans anymore, only to await orders from Jaegers commanded by the officers. Haytham and Connor killed a group of Redcoats to draw the Jaegers, and took out one of them, retrieving a letter indicating a meeting at the ruins of Trinity Church.
After capturing the officers there, Haytham interrogated them at his hideout in Fort George, and learned the British planned to march from Philadelphia and regroup in New York within two days. Haytham then killed the officers, which Connor objected to.
Although Haytham regretted how corrupt he had become, he countered that the officers would have warned the Loyalists, and argued the British treated their prisoners no better on prison ships like the HMS Jersey. He placed further doubt in Connor by explaining the Patriots aboard suffered because Washington refused to exchange his prisoners for them.
The Templar and Assassin came to Valley Forge, where conditions had greatly improved due to their efforts. Connor informed Washington of what they learned, while Haytham found a letter on the commander's desk ordering an attack on Connor's village, as they had sided with the British. Reading it out and denouncing Washington, Haytham believed he had turned his son against him, only for Connor to denounce him in turn, believing he had known all along and only informed him when it was opportune. As he set off to stop the destruction of his village, Connor warned Haytham or Washington he would kill them should they choose to follow or oppose him.
While waiting for Connor to launch an attack on Fort George, Haytham wrote about why Lee had been dismissed after the Battle of Monmouth, and his decision to spare Washington after their encounter at Valley Forge. Although Lee blamed Haytham for creating the Assassin, Haytham had no intention of letting Connor kill them, and opted to stay at the fort to stop him. Lee apologized for doubting him, and left.
Haytham wrote his final entry, recognizing he ought to present the truth to Connor, just as his own father was the one man in his life to never lie to him, hoping in time, he would understand and forgive him.
Connor described his battle with Haytham during the attack on Fort George, which ended with him killing his father.
Connor caught up with Lee at a tavern and killed him.
Connor discovered his village was deserted. He resolved to bury his father's amulet. As he did this, he spoke to the spirits of his parents, apologizing for failing his people to his mother, while agreeing to compromise with his father's beliefs by hoping people would become better as he strived for the future.
