Warn the Village was a visual representation of Ratonhnhaké:ton's genetic memories from an Apple of Eden-induced reality.


After defending Concord and Lexington from King Washington's forces, Ratonhnhaké:ton and Kaniehtí:io realized that Kanatahséton was in danger.


  • Kaniehtí:io: He tried to destroy the entire town. It is all my fault.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I do not understand. Washington knows me. He is a man of reason, if nothing else. But that was not the man I once called my friend.
  • Kaniehtí:io: Are you confused? When would you have ever met that monster?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I met him ... I ... Mother, this is all wrong. Washington, the violence, all of it!
  • Kaniehtí:io: We must get back and warn our people in the village before the Mad King spreads his destruction there.

Ratonhnhaké:ton and Kaniehtí:io mounted horses for the journey back to the village.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: The Lexington I knew was the scene of a great triumph. Now it is a place of disaster.

Kaniehtí:io noticed a blockade on the road ahead and proposed a shortcut.

  • Kaniehtí:io: This way. It will be faster.

Ratonhnhaké:ton and Kaniehtí:io survived a Bluecoat ambush on the way back to the village, with help from two other Kanien'kehá:ka villagers. After the attack, Kaniehtí:io engaged in a conversation with them.

ACIII-Warn 3

Teiowí:sonte and Kahionhaténion informing Kaniehtí:io about Oiá:ner's plan

  • Kaniehtí:io: Mad King George is on a warpath and intends to destroy our village. We need every able body to protect it, come with us.
  • Teiowí:sonte: We know. Oiá:ner sent us to collect boughs of the Great Willow. She means for us to defend our people.
  • Kaniehtí:io: To make the tea?! Has she lost her senses?! The tea's pitfalls overshadow its power. You must not do it.
  • Teiowí:sonte: You have seen what it can do? Is it dangerous?
  • Kaniehtí:io: I have seen it. It is worse than dangerous, it is a promise of madness, even death for those lacking the constitution.
  • Kahionhaténion: We cannot disobey the Clan Mother.
  • Kaniehtí:io: Believe me, the tea of the Great Willow is folly. Come back with us.
  • Teiowí:sonte: We will fulfill the Clan Mother's request. We will collect the boughs. Speak to Oiá:ner and if you can convince her, we will burn them.
  • Kaniehtí:io: I intend to.

Teiowí:sonte and his brother left for the Great Willow tree, whilst Ratonhnhaké:ton and Kaniehtí:io continued on towards Kanatahséton.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: What is the Tea of the Great Willow?
  • Kaniehtí:io: Something our people should never have discovered. It is the tea brewed of the Great Willow's virgin boughs and consumed by our warriors. It grants certain – strengths, Ratonhnhaké:ton, but for every physical boon it gives, it robs a piece of the mind. It must never be made.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Did you drink it?
  • Kaniehtí:io: Never. But I have seen what happens to those who do. You are the son of a man of violence. It would affect you far more than anyone else. I will not allow you to drink it.

Kaniehtí:io and Ratonhnhaké:ton arrived at the village before the attack.

  • Kaniehtí:io: Thank the maker we are not too late.

Kaniehtí:io and Ratonhnhaké:ton saw that the Kanien'kehá:ka villagers were gathered around the fire, alongside the Clan Mother. Prompted by Oiá:ner's decision, Kaniehtí:io voiced her opinion.

ACIII-Warn 5

Oiá:ner's blaming Kaniehtí:io for the attacks

  • Kaniehtí:io: You intend to brew tea of the Great Willow? Have you forgotten the consequence of drinking it? I have not.
  • Oiá:ner: No, Kaniehtí:io, but when our people face a threat like the Mad King, there are no other paths.
  • Kaniehtí:io: No other paths? We can fight them as human beings! My son and I have had success just the two of us. Imagine the strength of our whole village.
  • Oiá:ner: And how many of these fearless Bluecoats have you brought down at a time? Two? Five? Ten? Thousands will come to destroy us – thousands that YOU awoke. Our people's survival depends on the strength of the Great Willow.
  • Kaniehtí:io: You are as mad as the King. Do what you will but my son will not drink the tea.

Kaniehtí:io dragged Ratonhnhaké:ton away from the fire, towards their home.

  • Oiá:ner: Then, like you, he will die.

Kaniehtí:io and Ratonhnhaké:ton walked towards their home, away from the Clan Mother and the other villagers.

  • Kaniehtí:io: Stupid old woman!
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: What would you have us do, mother? We have no choice but to fight.
  • Kaniehtí:io: I know. I have something that will help. Something from your father.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: My father?
  • Kaniehtí:io: He left it for you long ago, before he died.

Ratonhnhaké:ton and Kaniehtí:io entered their home, to which Kaniehtí:io handed Ratonhnhaké:ton a Hidden Blade.

ACIII-Warn 6

Kaniehtí:io with the Hidden Blade

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: My father left those for me?
  • Kaniehtí:io: He was part of an order. A secret brotherhood–
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I know who my father was and I know what those are.
  • Kaniehtí:io: You do?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: They will certainly help.
  • Kaniehtí:io: How do you know all this?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: I can not explain. Everything is all wrong here! All of this should NOT BE. YOU should not be. I watched you–

Ratonhnhaké:ton was interrupted by the sound of gunfire from outside the longhouse. Both he and Kaniehtí:io ran outside to investigate, and Ratonhnhaké:ton was greeted by a large amount of Washington's men.

  • Kaniehtí:io: He is here!

Ratonhnhaké:ton killed a large proportion of Washington's forces, warning the villagers to flee in whilst doing so.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Run! To the forest!
    Get out of here! They will show you no mercy!
    You must flee!

Washington approached the battlefield on horseback, accompanied by his two Generals.

ACIII-Warn 9

General Putnam along with Washington

  • Washington: General Putnam, General Arnold. I sometimes despair of our project. I question my abilities and my strength. But with you two at my side, I believe we will bring liberty to this country and we will bring it with fists of iron! Can I have assurance of your loyalty?
  • Putnam: You have my solemn pledge.
  • Arnold: And mine.
  • Washington: Thank you, honorable gentlemen. This country will remember you.
  • Putnam: Give no quarter to the savages!

Kaniehtí:io approached Washington.

ACIII-Warn 10

Kaniehtí:io preparing to attack Washington

  • Kaniehtí:io: You'll not succeed here!
  • Washington: You!? You survived? How astonishing. This time, I'll make certain of your death.

Washington pulled out his scepter (containing an Apple of Eden) as Kaniehtí:io rushed towards him, and struck her to the ground with a flash of light from the artifact. Ratonhnhaké:ton looked over, saw his mother on the floor and rushed over to her.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: MOTHER! Washington!

Washington dismounted his horse and walked towards Ratonhnhaké:ton.

  • Washington: You are fighting the force of liberty!
    Away with you!

As the Mad King got closer, Ratonhnhaké:ton lashed out in grief in an attempt to kill George, though he failed and was also struck to the ground with a flash of light from the scepter.

  • Washington: With my power, I will rule over a free world!
ACIII-Warn 15

Ratonhnhaké:ton shot by Washington

Washington walked towards Ratonhnhaké:ton, pulling out two pistols and shooting him, before he threw the firearms to the ground. From there, he motioned to Benedict to hand him his musket.

  • Washington: Give that here.
    For good measure.

Washington used the bayonet to stab and then subsequently shoot Ratonhnhaké:ton point blank in the chest. Ratonhnhaké:ton fell, severely injured, where he stared at his mother's dead body as he faded out of consciousness.


Kaniehtí:io died by King Washington's hand, and Ratonhnhaké:ton was severely injured defending Kanatahséton from the mad ruler's attack.


  • Ratonhnhaké:ton calls Washington his friend despite the fact that the two cut off ties with one another after Ratonhnhaké:ton learned of Washington's involvement in the attack on his village.
