QXNzYXNzaW5hdGlvbg0K[note 1] was an incomplete virtual representation of one of Shay Cormac's genetic memories stored in the Helix, relived by a research analyst through the Animus.


Shay and Benjamin Franklin arrived at the Palace of Versailles.


Shay and Franklin walked towards the palace.

  • Franklin: Ah, Shay. You certainly look prepared to meet royalty! Perhaps King Louis himself will grant you an audience.
  • Shay: I doubt even these breeches will get me into the King's chambers. Besides, I'm only here to see a business acquaintance.
  • Franklin: Yes, I heard a group of merchants would be here today. They might come see my scientific demonstration later!
  • Shay: They really should, they might learn something. Though I wouldn't count on their being present. I take my leave. Thank you again, Master Franklin.

Franklin left.

  • Shay: Now to find Charles... and that damned box.

Shay walked to the door of the palace, and saw Charles enter with his son.

  • Shay: That's him! Charles Dorian.

The door to the palace closed, and Shay approached the guards.

  • Guard: Sorry sir, the palace is closed to visitors at the moment. Please return tomorrow.
  • Shay: But I'm supposed to be in a meeting right now.
  • Guard: Then you should already be inside. Come back and sell your wool tomorrow.
  • Shay: Lucky for him, I can find another way in.

Shay entered the palace's chambers through a balcony, blending with the guests to avoid the guards. Reaching a corridor, he saw Charles' son with a girl.

  • Élise: Did you see their faces when we stole those apples?

The children laughed.

  • Arno: I'm Arno.
  • Élise: Élise.
  • Arno: I'm here with my father.
  • Élise: So am I. He has important business with the king.
  • Arno: What should we do now?

Shay entered a hallway and witnessed Charles leave an Assassin meeting.

  • Charles: Gentlemen, I will protect this artifact with my very life.
    Arno? Where have you gone?
    My son, Arno... Perhaps you have seen him?
    Have you seen a little boy around? I'm looking for my son.
    Arno! Where are you?
    Arno? Arno?
    Stop playing, Arno. Time to come out.

Shay discreetly assassinated Charles with his Hidden Blade and placed him on a chair.

ACRG Assassination 6

Shay assassinating Charles

  • Charles: You! You're the traitor.
  • Shay: I'm just finishing old business.

Shay took the Precursor box from Charles.

As Shay left, Charles stood up before succumbing to his wounds, attracting the attention of everyone in the palace. Meanwhile, Shay moved through the crowds and left the palace. He then narrated the events of his life.

ACRG Assassination 10

Shay escaping the scene

  • Shay: Uphold the principles of our order and all that for which we stand. Never share our secrets nor divulge the true nature of our work. Do so until death - whatever the cost. This is my new creed. I am Shay Patrick Cormac, Templar of the Colonial... of the American rite. I am an older man now, and perhaps wiser. A war and a revolution have ended, and another is about to begin. May the Father of Understanding guide us all.


Shay assassinated Charles Dorian and reclaimed the Precursor box for the Templar Order.


Behind the scenes

Both Shay and Charles both talk as if the American Revolutionary War and the dismantling of the Colonial Templar Rite have concluded but at the time of this memory both are still in their infancy with many high ranking Templars of that Rite still alive.
