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


Connor and Haytham Kenway met with George Washington. However, Connor found out that he planned to destroy his village, so he went to rescue them.


Connor met Haytham near Valley Forge.

  • Haytham: We should be sharing what we know with Lee, not Washington...
  • Connor: You seem to think I favor him. But my enemy is a notion, not a nation. It is wrong to compel obedience—whether to the British Crown or the Templar Cross. And I hope in time the Loyalists will see this too, for they are also victims.
  • Haytham: You oppose tyranny. Injustice. These are just symptoms. Their true cause is human weakness. Why do you think I keep on trying to show you the error of your way?
  • Connor: You have SAID much, yes. But you have SHOWN me nothing.
  • Haytham: Then we'll have to remedy that then, won't we...

Haytham informing Connor about Washington's orders

They met with George Washington.

  • Connor: Sir.
  • George: Hello, Connor. What brings you here?
  • Connor: The British have recalled their men in Philadelphia. They march for New York.
  • George: Very well. I'll move our forces to Monmouth. If we can rout them, we'll have finally turned the tide.

On the table behind George, Haytham picks up a letter.

  • Haytham: And what's this?
  • George: Private correspondence!
  • Haytham: Of course it is. Would you like to know what it says, Connor? It seems your good friend here has just ordered an attack on your village. Although attack might be putting it mildly. Tell him, Commander.
  • George: We've been receiving reports of allied natives working with the British. I've asked my men to put a stop to it.
  • Haytham: By burning their villages, and salting the land. By calling for their extermination, according to this letter. Not the first time either. Tell him what you did fourteen years ago.

Connor warning Washington and Haytham to not interfere

  • George: That was another time. The Seven Years' War.
  • Haytham: And so now you see what happens to this "great man" when under duress. He makes excuses, displaces blame. Does a great many things, in fact—except take responsibility.
  • Connor: Enough! Who did what and why must wait. My people come first.
  • Haytham: Then let's be off.
  • Connor: No. You and I are finished.
  • Haytham: Son...
  • Connor: Do you think me so soft that by calling me son I might change my mind? How long did you sit on this information? Or am I to believe you discovered it now? My mother's blood may stain another's hands, but Charles Lee is no less a monster, and all he does, he does by your command. A warning to you both - choose to follow me or oppose me and I will kill you.

Connor then rode out to kill the couriers carrying Washington's letters. After that, he traveled to his village.

  • Connor: I should make sure the village is safe.
  • Clan Mother: Ratonhnhaké:ton! You have returned! But why? I thought you would be with that other man.
  • Connor: What other man?

Clan Mother telling Connor about Charles Lee's involvement

  • Clan Mother: Boiling Water. The one called Charles Lee. He took Kanen'tó:kon and a few others with him.
  • Connor: What? Where have they gone?
  • Clan Mother: To push back those who would take our land.
  • Connor: No. This is wrong...
  • Clan mother: Why are you troubled? Is this not what you wanted? For us to take a stand?
  • Connor: I... I have to go. I need to stop them.

Connor then went to stop the villagers, eventually finding Kanen'tó:kon, who sharply turned around to face Connor, with a drawn dagger.

  • Connor: Peace, Kanen'tó:kon!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: Ratonhnhaké:ton. Come to kill me yourself?
  • Connor: What?!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: Charles Lee told me everything. The Patriots seek to destroy us. And you would aid them.
  • Connor: That man is a liar!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: He said you had been corrupted. That you would try to deceive. But here they are on our doorstep. What say you to that?

Kanen'tó:kon facing Connor

  • Connor: It is a mistake!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: The only mistake was trusting you would help to keep us safe. They have seduced you. And you are turned against your own kind.
  • Connor: Stop!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: I will. When you are dead.

In the following struggle, Connor was forced to kill Kanen'tó:kon in self-defense.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: My passing wins you nothing, Ratonhnhaké:ton. Charles Lee rides for Monmouth to reveal the Patriots' plans. The Loyalists will destroy them. The revolution will be ended. The Crown victorious. Our people... safe.
  • Connor: It seems our people will never be safe. You are resting now, my friend.


Connor stopped the attack on his village, but was forced to kill Kanen'tó:kon when he was attacked.


  • Haytham mentions Washington's order to burn down Kanatahséton fourteen years ago, while it was destroyed in 1760, making it eighteen years ago.
