I think Charles Lee is going to be the main or a very major villain in the game. He is seen in the magazine choking a young Connor, as well as the fact that he died in 1782, which be a perfect excuse for an assassination. On top of that, he was known to hate Washington, who is a friend of Connor. He was also happened to marry a Mohawk chiefs daughter during the French and Indian war. It is possible he is the cause for the village that Connor grew up in to be burned. He also happened to have a temper, he was given the name "Boiling Water" by Mohawks.
Contrary to popular belief, that picture is actually false.
Those are actually two different pictures entirely. It just looks like one picture because they overlap one another. If you were to look at the Game Informer you would notice that one picture is of Connor running along an Icy landscape.
The other picture is simply a stand-alone picture of the white-headed man.
I cannot post the picture cause I think it has something to do with Copyrights or whatever. But that is not Connor about to kill someone.
I think you're right. I already thought Lee would be an assassination target, but that's a great find about him marrying a Mohawk woman. Wikipedia says her name is unknown and that they had twins. Lee is also British, so that fits as well. The only part that doesn't fit is that they said the game starts in 1753, but Charles Lee didn't arrive in America until 1754. They might have gotten the year wrong in the article, or just played a tad loose with history for some reason. Also, Charles Lee left America in 1760 to return to Europe (he returned to America in 1773). I would assume the picture of him holding Connor menacingly is from shortly before he left. So does Connor look like he's around 5-7 years old in that picture? Sort of, but they could use some artistic license to make him look a little older, or shift the year of Lee's departure back a year or two from recorded history. Excellent find!
