Sometime later, André dressed up as the Black Cross to protect Berg's identity as the at the Inner Sanctum meeting in Charlevoix, Quebec. At the meeting, the Inner Sanctum questioned his identity to which he replied that he was the Black Cross and that he knows all of their identity. André informed the members that Abstergo may have been infiltrated by a number ofhostile fifth columns. Laetita England asked for the proof, to which Andre responded with a middle finger, refusing to answer to the Inner Sanctum. Berg pretended to be enraged by Andre's comments and jumped on him, only to be thrown across the room. Afirming his independence and warning the members, André threw a smoke bomb and left the meeting.
André later returned to Berg's apartment in Montreal, where he was offered a drink by Berg. André was amazed at how much the Black Cross suit weight and wondered how Berg was able to move around in it. Berg responded saying that having worn kevlar vests during his time in Jaeger Regiment makes it normal to him. He asked Andre why he gave then Inner Sanctum members the middle finger, to which André responded he got lost in the moment. Berg remarked that the Inner Sanctum are completely ruthless so André should count himself to be lucky that that he did not got lost in a landfill. He later thanked André as due to his actions, he had now the room to operate as both a member of the Inner Sanctum and the Black Cross. Berg then told André he was going to track down the googles he had recovered from Hong Kong which came from an Abstergo facility in Berlin, Germany.
A few days later, after Berg returned from Berlin suffering injuries, André advised him to stop going after people and that despite Abstergo's 'noble' cause, it has been infected by 'parasites' who would learn to use it and that once they passed without being noticed, they would eventually take over. André then told Berg that he left the company's tax sheet open on the computer before leaving, telling him not to get his hopes up.
Sometime later, André sent a sample of his blood to Berg so that he could relieve the memories of Albert Bolden during his time in the Spanish Civil War in search of the Koh-i-Noor. After Berg had found the location of the jewel, he contacted André and gave him the address of Álvaro Gramática's laboratory, requesting him to keep a lookout for any signs of them constructing a body for an ancient deity. Unbeknownst to Berg however, André was found by one of the Instruments Jasdip Dhami, who had overheard everything.
- While being a member of the Bolden family, André is the descendant of Jan van der Graff and not of Solomon Bolden.
- Bolden is a fan of Star Trek, often comparing the technology of Abstergo to the series'.
- In some panels of Assassin's Creed: Templars, artist Dennis Calero modeled Bolden's appearance after actor Laurence Fishburne. [来源请求]
