It makes sense. A resource-rich territory is a perfect battleground between Assassins and Templars. If UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington doesn't turn out to be a Templar, he's a perfect Assassin Grand Master, as historians already believe him to be one of the great military spymasters of the era. Hell, the Founding Fathers might even not be aware that some of their fellow leaders are Assassins or Templars, which could lead to a fundamental split in ideology between them (one that can be seen later in the Federalist ([[UsefulNotes/JohnAdams Adams]], [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton Hamilton]]) and Democratic Republican ([[UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson Jefferson]], [[UsefulNotes/JamesMadison Madison]]) divide after the Revolution. They could use colonial cities like Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Charleston as settings. Granted, this is likely more possible if the majority of the Patriots were Assassin-aligned, and I have a sneaking suspicion UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson would have been the preeminent Assassin anyway, while Creator/BenjaminFranklin served as more of a [[LeonardoDaVinci da Vinci]] role.

Based on information revealed in Abstergo emails in ''AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'', Connor married a blonde with a "colorful character," which certainly matches Emily's profile. Plus, as she's against the Templars, it's easy to imagine the pair having run across each other at some point in their lives, with Emily possibly even joining the Assassins.

E-mails Desmond can find at the end of the first game make mention of them (along with other [[SarcasmMode unimportant]] plot aspects like Subject 16 and the Bleeding Effect), specifically that the Templars hold them in the modern day and use them as untraceable communicators, and that Vidic himself is in possession of one. Meanwhile, one of the few English phrases on Subject 16's mural reads "Within [[Myth/AztecMythology Quetzalcoatl]]'s hunger and [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing Emperor Jiajing]]'s sin lies the answers". In [[{{Facebook}} Project Legacy]], we see Giovanni Borgia steal a Skull from an Aztec city, and he is later contacted through it by a Chinese man, who is most probably Jiajing. Given that the skulls from Mexico and China are probably what 16 was referring to, maybe the "answers" he says they contain are the solutions to the solar flare Jupiter mentions he, Juno and Minerva were working on at the time , that Desmond and co. will have to find, by digging through Shao Jun's memories to find the Jiajing skull, and preparing an assault on a Templar facility [[BigApplesauce convieniently]] located in New York to get Vidic's crystal skull, giving Desmond a chance to finally get some revenge on Dr. Vidic.

.............as a third faction to broker a sort of peace or armistice between Templars and Assassins. It has been alleged that Freemasons were created by Templars. However, their symbol has an Assassins-esque vibe to it. Perhaps the Freemasons were Templars and Assassins tired of the war, and wanted a form of peace. Most of the people with connections to the two groups were Freemasons, explaining why many of the Founding Fathers were from that group. The Lodges? Formed to negotiate between both groups. At one point later in history the Templars slowly took control and displaced the Assassins and slowly dominated the lodges. With very few representing the Assassins within the Freemasons today. And furthermore, considering the fact that the Founding Fathers were Masons and that the game wants to paint the war in a balanced light, having the group be solely Templar or Assassin will cause a major BaseBreaker(and depending on who founds the group, the ones complaining would be either the American or British players)

** And also because it'd be incredibly offensive. The idea that FDR, Churchill, Hitler, and Stalin started WWII and were all Templars is insanely bad for sales and PR on so many levels; not the least of which being the entire Pacific Rim erupting to point out that the *JAPANESE* were the ones to start UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo ([[UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar kinda]]). On top of that, Western Audiences might be able to stomach spearing American, British, French, Canadian, and Amerindian troops during the Revolutionary War, but shooting them in "The Good War"? If they wanted to make the World War II as a game they'd need to do crazy retconning in order to make it palatable.

*** Except for the fact that that would involve retconning what ACII said about UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo starting because of the collusion of Churchill, Roosevelt, Hitler, and Stalin as Templars. If the Japanese were really under Templar influence, wouldn't that have been mentioned?

** Like with UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, it would also be crazy controversial and the equivalent of kicking a hornet's nest with your bare foot and expecting to make a profit off the honey. It's less obviously so than World War Two, but there are enough national pathos tied into it and enough people who still know the basics that it'd probably wind up blowing up in their faces.
