A Boorish Man was a virtual representation of one of Ratonhnhaké:ton's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.

Description

Ratonhnhaké:ton started his journey to find the man that Juno mentioned, ending up on the Davenport Homestead.

Dialogue

Ratonhnhaké:ton walking past Godfrey and Terry

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Leaving home was harder than I thought. I expected the journey would fill me with a sort of pride. A sense of accomplishment. But whatever it was that carried me away from home soon fled, replaced by questions - and no small amount of doubt. Had I been too hasty? Had I made a mistake? The others in the village - they thought this was something I wanted. Something I chose to do. But it never felt that way to me. No, it was not a choice. It was an obligation. Because if not me, then who?

While making his way to the Homestead, Ratonhnhaké:ton witnessed an elderly man on a horse being chased by two robbers.

  • Achilles: GET OUT OF THE WAY!
  • Robber 1: After 'im!

Reaching the Homestead, Ratonhnhaké:ton found a man with a horse. If he stole the horse, the man would attack him.

  • Man: Hey! What are you doing?! That's mine!
    I'll have your head, scapegrace!
    Get back here, you addle-plot!
    Stop, thief!

Ratonhnhaké:ton entered the Homestead and came along Terry and Godfrey.

  • Terry: Hello!
  • Godfrey: Hello!
  • Terry: You must be one of them native fellas. From the uh... what's it called... Iroquois tribe? Aye. You from that?
  • Godfrey: Course not, Terry. Iroquois ain't a tribe.
  • Terry: Is so.
  • Godfrey: Is not! The Iroquois is a confederation.
  • Terry: Confeda-what-now?
  • Godfrey: Confederation, ya tony. It's a group. An alliance. Lotsa different kinds of people all united.
  • Terry: Right. Like I said. A tribe.
  • Godfrey: Listen you totty-headed twiddle poop - there's difference between a tribe and a confederation and it's not my fault your skull's too thick to make sense of it.
  • Terry: Who you calling a twiddle poop, you crump-backed scab!

The two men then started fighting.

  • Terry: Hey now! This is between me and him!
  • Godfrey: Yeah! Mind your business!

Ratonhnhaké:ton approached two robbers talking to each other.

  • Robber 1: Just give it a few days. We'll tend to the wounded, resupply, and come up wit a plan... I've sent Enoch to scout the place, figure out the best way in...
  • Robber 2: You hear 'im before? Sayin' 'e 'as no master but 'imself. What a load of fee faw fum. If he ain't no master, guess he's ours to do wit as we please.
  • Robber 1: Indeed. All in good time.

Ratonhnhaké:ton approached the robbers.

  • Robber 1: Private matters being discussed here. Best you move along.
  • Robber 2: Won't warn you again...

Ratonhnhaké:ton then knocked on the door of the mansion.

Ratonhnhaké:ton at Achilles' compound

  • Achilles: What?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Um... I... I was told you could train me.
  • Achilles: No.

Achilles closed the door and Ratonhnhaké:ton knocked again.

  • Achilles: Go away!
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I'm not leaving! ... I need a place to camp. This should do.

Ratonhnhaké:ton then spent the night in the stables. The following day, he tried the door again.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: There must be another way in.

Ratonhnhaké:ton then tried the backdoor.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Please, all I ask is a moment of your time...
  • Achilles: I apologize if I've been unclear - or otherwise confused you with my words, it was never my intention to mislead. So let me try to clarify: GET THE HELL OFF MY LAND!

Ratonhnhaké:ton climbed up to the balcony porch.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I'm coming up! Just hear me out! What are you so afraid of?!

Achilles opened the door and tripped Ratonhnhaké:ton with his cane. He pressed the head of the cane to Ratonhnhaké:ton's throat.

Achilles warning Ratonhnhaké:ton about the consequences

  • Achilles: Afraid? You think I'm afraid of ANYTHING, least of all, a self-important little scab like you?! Oh, you might dream of being a hero. Of riding to rescues, of saving the world - but stay this course, and the only thing you're gonna be is DEAD. The world's moved on, boy. Best you do too.

Achilles went back inside, slamming the door.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I will not leave! Do you hear me? I am NEVER leaving! Just wait, old man. I won't be defeated so easily. You WILL train me, you HAVE to.

That night, Ratonhnhaké:ton slept in the stables again. Sometime during that night, robbers moved around the house.

  • Robber 1: He's a square toes - this'll be easy.
  • Robber 2: That's what you said last time and I wound up with a dead 'orse an a dark eye.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Who are you?
  • Robber 1: No one you need concern yourself with, little breeches.
  • Robber 2: Best cut 'fore something bad 'appens.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: No.
  • Robber 2: Can't say we didn't warn ya.

Ratonhnhaké:ton fought the robbers and killed one of them. The other then called for the rest of the men.

  • Robbers: Oi! Brothers!
    Yield, boy, and we'll do ya quickly
    Songs and spirits can't save ya now!
    Hah! Look at the savage dance!
    Shoulda run when ya had the chance...

Ratonhnhaké:ton then questioned one of the robbers.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Why are you here? What do you want?
  • Robber: Best ask the bossman.

The leader beat Ratonhnhaké:ton to the ground.

  • Leader: You workin' for the old man, then? That it? Maybe this'll get ya talkin'. Oh.

Achilles sneaking behind the men

Achilles snuck up behind the men and stealthily killed them.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Thank you.
  • Achilles: Clean this up. Then, I suppose we should talk...

Ratonhnhaké:ton then entered the manor and spoke with Achilles, falling through a chair when trying to sit.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Sorry.
  • Achilles: Not your fault. This whole place is ready to come down. Goddamn miracle it hasn't already. Anyway, who are you?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: My name is Ratonhnhaké:ton.
  • Achilles: Right. Well, I'm not even going to try and pronounce that. Now tell me why you're here.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I was told to seek this symbol.
  • Achilles: Do you even know what that symbol represents? Or what it is you're asking for?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: No.
  • Achilles: And yet here you are.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: The spirit said that - That I've -

Ratonhnhaké:ton showing the insignia

  • Achilles: These "spirits" of yours have been harassing the Assassins for centuries. Ever since Ezio uncorked the bottle... Ah - but you don't even know what an Assassin is, do you? Well best settle in, then. I've got a story to tell and it's gonna take a while to get it all out...

A certain amount of time passed with Achilles explaining about the Assassins and Templars.

  • Achilles: ... and so this is why the Assassins have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of the Templars. Because if they succeed - your spirit's visions will become reality.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Then I will stop them.
  • Achilles: Oh I have no doubt you'll try. Come on. I've something to show you. Careful. Wasn't a joke when I said this place was coming apart.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Why don't you repair it?
  • Achilles: What's the point? Besides I don't have materials for the job.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: So buy them.
  • Achilles: Look at me! You think I can just march into some store, purse full of pounds, and go shopping?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Yes. Why not?
  • Achilles: So naive...

Achilles then opened a secret door to the basement.

  • Achilles: This way.

Ratonhnhaké:ton started looking at the Assassin robes in the basement.

  • Achilles: Don't think you can just come in here, throw those on and call yourself an Assassin.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I... did not... I would never presume...
  • Achilles: That's alright. I know they've a certain allure. Very well. I'll train you. Then we'll know if you've the right to wear those robes...
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Thank you... uh...
  • Achilles: Name's Achilles. Come on, then. We've work to do.

Ratonhnhaké:ton removed a board, revealing the portraits of Haytham Kenway, Charles Lee, Nicholas Biddle, William Johnson, Thomas Hickey and Benjamin Church.

Achilles explaining the Templars' agenda

  • Echo: You are a speck of dust. A nothing. You - and all your kind. Living in the dirt like animals. Oblivious to the true ways of the world...
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: What do the Templars want?
  • Achilles: What they've always wanted: Control. They see an opportunity in the colonies. A chance for new beginnings, unfettered by the chaos of the past. This is why they back the British. Here they have a chance to illustrate the merits of their beliefs: A people in service to the principles of order and structure.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I have seen what is to come if they succeed. They have to die, don't they? All of them. Even my father.
  • Achilles: Especially your father. He's the one holding the whole thing together.

Outcome

Ratonhnhaké:ton met with Achilles Davenport, who, after a while, accepted to train him into an Assassin, allowing him to follow the path Juno had shown him.
