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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
