As the battle between the Templars and the Assassins rages on, Desmond Miles must once again return to the Animus and skate the chains of his DNA to unlock more memories of ancestors past and hopefully regain some of the power that was previously locked away. Previous connection to the Animus granted Desmond the power of advanced sight, enhanced climbing and movement abilities, and he even found Ezio’s hidden blade – but as Desmond delves into a new ancestor’s story, what new secrets will he find and will learning more about his descendants help his future?
In Assassin’s Creed III, Desmond relives the journeys of yet another member of his Assassin ancestry – a fierce half-British, half-Mohawk Indian warrior called Ratonhnhaké:ton. As a child, he watched his people suffer at the hands of the Colonists. Taking their suffering in mind, he sought out to protect those who could not defend themselves from tyranny and oppression. Ratonhnhaké:ton eventually became a member of the Assassin’s Order, with that he adopted a new moniker; one that would allow him to easily skitter amongst the colonial people. To the colonists, he was known as Connor Kenway.
