- "White Death! Come for healing, leave in a box!"
- ―Paper boys slandering White's reputation in Boston.[src]
During his time in Boston, the British frequently requested that he should not treat Continental troops for their wounds, but Lyle declined, treating both equally. The British Regulars then slandered his reputation, giving him the nicknames "White Death" and "Dr. Death". This destroyed his business and left him feeling ashamed and dishonored, and he sunk into a bout of depression, drinking frequently, until his discovery by the Assassin Connor, who invited him to the Davenport Homestead.
Life on the Homestead
Lyle settled in at the Homestead on the behest of Warren and Prudence, who wished for a doctor that would assist with her pregnancy. Later, his name was defiled once more by the British in Boston, and Connor was sent to halt their proceedings permanently. Upon arriving, Lyle's courier informed him that the slander was being distributed by paper boys around Boston, and Connor bribed them to end the defilement of White's name. He then went in search of their overseer, who he either beat up or pickpocketed, thus ending the defilement of Lyle's name.
Introduction of assistant
Afterwards, Lyle became overwhelmed with treating the many wounded sailors of the Aquila following the Battle of the Chesapeake, to which he requested Connor to find someone with steady hands to assist him as a nurse and apprentice. Rushing to find someone, Connor located Diana, who he brought back to the medical station.
As Connor performed minor medical help nearby, such as realigning dislocated joints and treating cuts and burns, Lyle and Diana worked together on the more serious injuries. When all was done, Lyle was so impressed with Diana that he mentioned that she was more capable than any previous assistants he had worked with prior. He then took her on as his apprentice and nurse.
Following this, Lyle attended the wedding of Norris and Myriam, and celebrated afterwards in the Mile's End tavern as part of the reception. He also was present at Achilles Davenport's funeral, and laid a rose on his coffin.
- White was one of the few residents of the Homestead known to be literate, as he could be seen reading a letter sent to Norris and Myriam outside his home.
