|“||Connor, if you are reading this, I have failed to say goodbye as I wanted, but the time never seemed appropriate. I leave this land and all its resources to you. I trust you now know this place has become something of great significance. A community to serve as an example of what this would-be nation could become. But the larger and stronger it grows, the more fragile and difficult to defend it becomes. I hope your friends who are birthing this infant country understand this truth. Your unwavering tenacity and honesty have burdened you with responsibility far greater than any one man should bear. But you, if anyone are capable. You have given an old man hope that all is not lost and for that I thank you. I ask that you lay my bones to rest on the hill overlooking the water, there is no other place on this earth I'd rather be. I am grateful to have met you, knowing you will guide this land and these people to a better future. Yours in brotherhood, Achilles.||„|
|~ Achilles' final words, will and testament to Connor|
Achilles Davenport (c. 1710 – 1781) was the Mentor of the Colonial Brotherhood of Assassins from 1746 until 1763. A man of Caribbean and British descent, Achilles' tenure as leader of the Colonial Assassins saw the Brotherhood strengthen greatly.
After a large-scale attack on the Assassins by the Colonial Rite of the Templar Order in 1763 throughout the Thirteen Colonies, the Colonial Brotherhood collapsed and disbanded. Living in exile in his manor, Achilles abandoned the Assassin ideology until his meeting with the young Ratonhnhaké:ton, whom he started to train on the boy's behest. Achilles spent his final years guiding Ratonhnhaké:ton, and this tutelage led to his apprentice's important role in the American Revolution and the extermination of the Colonial Templars.

Stamina: Incredibly High
Range: Standard melee range. Extended melee range with his sword and Hidden Blades. Several tens to hundreds of meters with firearms
Standard Equipment: Dual Hidden Blades, a sword, flintlock pistols, rope darts, later uses a cane and a small knife
Intelligence: Gifted. Having been trained by Ah Tabai, Achilles was a skilled Master Assassin, adept in stealth, swordsmanship, melee combat, as well as freerunning, pickpocketing and lockpicking. Achilles also possessed knowledge in healing wounds shown when he tended to Myriam after she was attacked. His intelligence and organizational skills aided in the establishment of the Colonial Brotherhood which led to the Brotherhood gaining a large presence in the colonies, spanning nearly all across the Frontier, eventually allowing him to rise to the rank of Mentor. Achilles also possessed some skill as a sailor, acting as captain of the Aquila for a time. In terms of weapons, Achilles wielded a Hidden Blade, a sword, as well as a flintlock pistol. However, his skill level was outranked by Haytham Kenway in terms of swordsmanship, despite being 15 years older.
Weaknesses: Standard human weaknesses, but has survived situations that would kill peak-level humans. Was crippled when Haytham shot him in the knee, although this doesn't hinder his combat capabilities that much, as he had now made good use of his cane. Fell into severe depression and grief upon the loss of his wife and son to disease, and after being crippled by Haytham, his hopes were completely shattered, and thus he wasted away in his manor for 9 years before Ratonhnhaké:ton came along.
