Edward Kenway Story [before 1715]
Edward Kenway is a young, brash Welshman born to an English Father and Welsh mother.
He is charismatic and clever, but has a recklessness that borders on pathological. He is generally kind, but naturally selfish, and has a habit of valuing his own ludicrous ideas long before he will consider sensible or rational approaches to any problem.
And he enjoys his drink, much to the detriment of his vital organs.
By the time Edward was in his early teens his family had moved to Bristol in the south East of England where he eventually met and married a woman two years his senior, the lovely and stable Caroline Scott.
By all accounts the marriage was a lively one, but Caroline soon grew tired of Edward's inability to find steady work or take his responsibilities as a husband seriously.
But it was Edward’s grandiose ideas about sailing as a privateer in the West Indies and earning a fortune in gold that eventually disrupted what should otherwise have been a happy marriage.
Caroline eventually left Edward to return to her family’s modest home, leaving Edward alone with his bitter ambitions. But made good on this one promise.
In late 1712, he boarded a ship and set sail for Jamaica to sail with renowned privateer, Benjamin Hornigold. And here he would remain for six months, until history threw Edward and his company another complication:
PEACE broke out.
In 1713, the treaty of Utrecht effectively ended all conflict between the major empires. British Privateers were no longer needed or indeed tolerated in the West Indies. Edward, and so many of his bretheren would find the Devil’s work far more attractive than their King’s.

Honestly, I like the idea of AC 4, ‘cus pirates. You can never have enough pirates.
And connor’s grampa looks like a nice guy, I mean he has like ten pistols in two belts, that’s dedication right there.
The guns’ stuff and dedication he might gives can easily turn out as a kink already.
