The two later returned to the facilitity, where they learned that Caitlin had been killed by someone in the facility. When Berg asked André if he wished to stay, André replied that he is not going anywhere. He decided to help Berg finish the session so that they can complete the investigation. Through the last session, André and Berg learned that Tavis trained Jan to become the next Black Cross. Jan was also able to escape the prison and confront Ahkbar, who had poisoned the Sultan, Selim III and recovered the diamond. Ahkbar used the diamond to create illusions, but was easily defeated and killed by Jan, who had seen through the illusions. The Assassins later arrived, having heard of Ahkbar's betrayal and surrounds Jan. When asked what he wished to do with the artifact, Jan replied that he had zero ideas of keeping the diamond to himself or the Templar Order and handed them a box, supposedly containing the diamond.
Having completed the last session, Berg and André dicussed the session at the bar. Berg apologised to André for the things that had happened even though they were still not close to finding the Koh-i-Noor. André smiled at him, telling him that Jan had tricked the Assassins as the diamond was still with him as he left Libya. On the topic of André's genetic memory, André told Berg that Jan had found a 'way' to keep his promise to Solomon, and met Solomon's wife. Both of them had a child which would would continue the Bolden family line. André later told Berg that he had a promise to keep to his daughter and hands him the Templar pin, which convinced him to take on the Black Cross mantle.
By 2017, André started working with Berg, helping him in his role as the new Black Cross. In February, André was contacted by Berg, who was in Hong Kong investigating the aftermath of an Assassin raid in an abandoned Abstergo Industries office. When Berg indentified the weapons involved as Assassin weapons, André suggested the possiblity of the Assassins and Templars working together, though Berg was unable to confirm it.
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]
