Source seems legit. I'm guessing he's Connor's father though I could be wrong because it's an adopted name. If I'm right, then I guess this is how Forsaken explores Connor's backstory - by telling us more about his father. Looking forward to updating as more info comes out. ~ GI Auditore Comms Channel 01:26, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Just a couple things I noticed.
First, the name "Haytham" is not an English name, its actually an Arabic name (what exactly it means I don't know at this time) In addition, that could potentially mean that Haytham may possibly be a descendant of Altaïr. And if so, it would mean Connor is a descendant of Altaïr. However, I doubt this, for the following reason: it could actually be his mentor's name--remember, Connor isn't born into the order, he joins it in 1770. And in joining the order, perhaps he takes the last name of Kenway so he can move around in the white world (maybe he only has his native name at this time, we'll see.)SpartanCrow (talk) 06:40, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm not so sure about the descendant part because it's been confirmed that Connor isn't related to either Altair or Ezio. As for the Mentor part, it is likely and I considered this possibility, which is why I said I could be wrong. ~ GI Auditore Comms Channel 07:34, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Then perhaps Connor's Mentor is a descendant of Altaïr. 126.96.36.199 18:46, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
- Because English people can only have English names. A first name has nothing to do with ancestry. I know several people here from the Netherlands who have foreign names, which in no way means that they have foreign ancestry. -- Master Sima Yi Talk 18:50, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
- Think about it. What would someone with an Arabic name be doing running around London in 1735, unless he was part Arabic? This isn't the 21st Century, where cultures mesh far more easily then in the past. And a first name doesn't necessairily have anything to do with ancestry, you're right about that.SpartanCrow (talk) 00:18, August 30, 2012 (UTC)
- I'm impressed by how fast the name's origin was caught. (Arabian411269 (talk) 16:25, September 15, 2012 (UTC))
- Maybe the relationship ship between Connor and Haytham has nothing to do with parentage. Connor's facial features have no resemblance what so ever to Middle Eastern bone structure or even skin color. Maybe Haytham was Connor's mentor and, and this is just speculation, he was killed and Connor took the name in honor of his mentor.
- And this might be interesting; Charles Lee was known to love dogs and always had at least half a dozen at his heel. Like father, like son? Wikipedia (Arabian411269 (talk) 16:30, September 15, 2012 (UTC))
- Whoever put in that Haytham is Connor's father on the page, can you provide evidence that's been confirmed? I've not seen ANYTHING on this yet. In addition, evidence that Haytham was born in 1735. 188.8.131.52 02:35, October 23, 2012 (UTC)
- it was sima that put that info in there and i trust him more than anyone else on this wiki America's mentor (talk) 02:42, October 23, 2012 (UTC)
- It is correct. Sources incoming within the next day or so. ► Kaloneous ◄ ♣HelpDesk♣ 02:45, October 23, 2012 (UTC)
'Tis all speculation at this point, my friend, we have to wait for more information till we can be sure. He could be Connor's father, or merely someone Connor respected, seeing as his name was one he chose for himself. ~ GI Auditore Comms Channel 15:18, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
I'm unsure about this. Eagle Vision is a genetic trait so it has to be passed on from parents yet I understand what you mean about it being unique to AC3. Sima or Vatsa would be the best to resolve this. ► Kaloneous ◄ ♣HelpDesk♣ 00:23, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
- I believe he is referring to the fact that this is the first known occasion wherein the father (or mother) has not simply been a carrier of the EV gene. As a carrier, a person does not possess the abilities or symptoms of the gene he is carrying, but can still pass it on to their children. --Jasca Ducato Council Chamber Assassination record 16:26, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
