• Crew: Hold fast! She's on us!
  • Edward: Can you see her?
  • Crew: Man the Cannons!
  • Crew: Our Helmsman's dead! Someone take the Wheel! Kenway! Take the bloody Wheel!


  • Crew: Uncork the Cannons, Lad! Unload all the Shot we have! Fire on those Bastards!


  • Crew: The Magazine! It's going up!
  • Captain: Douse the Flames! Get in there, you Mongrel!


Edward Kenway Memory 7

Edward with Caroline

  • Caroline: Is it dangerous? Edward?
  • Edward: Hm?
  • Caroline: Privateering. Is it dangerous?
  • Edward: Wouldn't pay so nice if it weren't.
  • Caroline: Why not sail with the King's Navy? Earn a proper Wage. Sail under Gentlemen.
  • Edward: Sod the Navy's Gentlemen. For every Shilling I'd earn, the Captain'd get six Hundred. That's no Way to earn a Fortune.
  • Caroline: We don't need a Fortune.
  • Edward: It's not about Need, Caroline. I want Food that don't make me sick. I want Walls that hold back the Wind. I want a decent Life.
  • Caroline: H-how long would you be gone with these Privateers?
  • Edward: A Year, I reckon. Two at the most.
  • Caroline: All right. No more than two... promise me...

Edward woke up in the water and swam towards a beach, where another man followed him.

Edward haggling with Duncan

  • Edward: Was it good for you as well?
  • Duncan: Havana... I must get to Havana.
  • Edward: Well, I'll just build us another Ship, will I?
  • Duncan: I can pay you. Isn't that the Sound you Pirates like best? One hundred Escudos.
  • Edward: Keep talking.
  • Duncan: Will you or won't you!
  • Edward: You don't have that Gold on you now, do you?
  • Duncan: Bloody fucking Pirates!
  • Edward: I am on to you, Sneaksby!

Duncan ran off into the jungle, and Edward gave chase.

  • Edward: Come on Mate! We're off to a bad Start! It's a hundred Leagues or more to Havana! Will you walk that Distance?

Edward climbed onto a viewpoint and looked for the Assassin.

  • Edward: Posh Git. Where's he running to?
  • Duncan: Follow and I'll kill you!
  • Edward: We could work together on this!
  • Duncan: Keep your Distance!

Duncan shot Edward, after which Kenway chased him down and killed him. Among Duncan's possessions, he found a letter addressed from Governor of Cuba, Laureano de Torres y Ayala.

Edward Kenway Memory 14

Edward reading the letter

  • Letter: (Mr. Duncan Walpole). I accept your most generous Offer, and await your Arrival with Eagerness. If you truly possess the Information we desire, we have the Means to reward you handsomely. Though I will not know your face by Sight, I believe I can recognize the Costume made infamous by your secret Order. Therefore, come to Havana in Haste... And trust that you shall be welcomed as a Brother. (Your most humble Servant, Governor Laureano Torres y Ayala.)

Edward donned Duncan's robes.

  • Edward: Mr. Walpole... let's collect your Reward.

Edward heard shots in the distance, and proceeded to investigate.

  • Edward: That Schooner'll do me just fine...
  • Soldier: The Commodore's gone ahead to Kingston. We're to commandeer this Lubber's Ship and Follow.
  • Stede: S-sorry, Kingston? No, no... our Destination is Havana. I'm just a Merchant-
  • Soldier: Quiet, you bleedin' Pirate! You'll hang for the Mess you made out there.
  • Stede: Sir, I had nothing to do with this Attack. My Crew and I had merely anchored to water and resupply!

Some of the crewmen attempted to escape.

  • Soldier: Hold it! Stop them!

The crewmen were shot by soldiers.

  • Soldier: Give me one Reason I shouldn't vent your Skull.
  • Stede: Take my Sugar! Take anything you like!

Edward killed the British soldiers and rescued Stede Bonnet.

Edward Kenway Memory 24

Stede thanking Edward for the rescue

  • Stede: By God's Grace, sir, you saved me. A Profusion of Thanks!
  • Edward: Is that yours?
  • Stede: It is my Vessel, yes. But, ah... here lies its poor Captain. And I have no Art for Sailing.
  • Edward: I can pilot her myself. No mind.
  • Stede: You don't mean to abscond with my Ship, do you?
  • Edward: I'm Duncan. What's your name, Friend?
  • Stede: Stede. Stede Bonnet.
  • Edward: Well Mister Bonnet, let this stay 'twixt us... but I am on a secret Errand for His Majesty the King, God save him, and I must get to Havana with Speed.
  • Stede: Ah... that is a Relief, Sir. Havana is also my Destination. Our Ways lie together!
  • Edward: Natural Allies then.
  • Stede: Oh, you put me at Ease, Sir. To think I took you for a Pirate when you first appeared.
  • Edward: Did you?
  • Stede: Yes! You have an... uncommon way of handling yourself. Quick and easy, if I may say. Gave me quite a Fright! But all Things considered, I think it's turned out to be a rather fortuitous Day, hasn't it?

Edward started swimming towards the ship.

  • Stede: Lacking a rowboat, I'm afraid we'll have to swim to my Ship.
  • Edward: Hardly the worst thing to happen.
  • Stede: Oh... Oh, this is difficult. I should have taken the Coat off!

Edward took the wheel of the ship.

  • Stede: Welcome aboard, Duncan. She's a modest Schooner but well-suited to my Purpose. Trafficking Cargo from my Plantation and such.
  • Edward: She'll do fine. There's a strong Wind now. Let's strike to Full, shall we?
  • Stede: Ah, there's a Tug of the Wind at my Hair! I find a bracing Comfort in the Feel and Smell of the Ocean. The raw Stink of... of Possibility!
Edward Kenway Memory 25

Stede complimenting Edward

Edward sailed out of the bay.

  • Edward: That's a top Way of seeing it, Mate.
  • Stede: We've really opened it up now, haven't we!
  • Stede: You're a natural Sailor, Duncan.
  • Edward: I did a decent Trick at the Helm some time ago. Two Years before the Mast as a Privateer.
  • Stede: Dash my Buttons! Your Life seems a grand One, if I may say. So full of Adventure! How marvelous.
  • Edward: I have seen my Share of Strangeness, aye.


Edward assumed the identity of Duncan Walpole, rescued Stede Bonnet and sailed for Havana.
